I watch a lot of anime and the ones I have watched with female protagonists never fail to piss me off in some sort of way in every episode I watch.
1. Overly sentimental
They always have these sentimental ass monologues in every fucking episode, they last for like 6 minutes, and she's usually just telling herself the same thing IN EVERY MONOLOGUE, "I'm gonna start doing things for me now" , " I understand what I must do", " I'm gonna start all over, this is a new beginning" it's just so typical and unoriginal.
2. Shocked by literally everything
Now I know that almost every anime has a protagonist where they overly react about things, I know this, but with the female protagonists they over react about EVERYTHING and I mean literally everything, for example: "*stunned look*, He looked at me, his eyes they're green, I've never noticed that before, wow" , "*gasp* our hands, they touched, he feel so.............cold" "*chokes* he said hi...to me wow" Like how are you that shocked 24/7?
3. I can swear they're all voiced by the same actress (for English dubbed)
This doesn't really go for the original or subbed anime but in the dubbed anime the female protagonist ALWAYS sounds the same, in every one I've watched. They all sound like candace from phineas and ferb to me, with high and lower pitches. I don't know though, maybe that's just me.
Maybe it's just the anime I watch though :/
