I can't watch anime anymore. (5)

Have you ever realized how unnatural and cringy the dialogue is in a lot of anime?

When I was a teen, I used to watch loads of moeblob anime and thought it was nice and cute etc. but then my irl Japanese friend told me that nobody actually talks like this in Japan except chuunis and manchildren.

Then I started paying closer attention to what the characters were saying, their mannerisms, etc. And now I've come to the point where I can't even watch an anime without cringing, unless the dialogue is realistic.

Does anyone else here feel the same?

I think the problem with moeblob is that the people who write it are shut-ins who are socially detached, so they don't know how to write good dialogue, so they rely on exaggeration and other anime-isms to replace it.

There definitely is good anime out there. Anime for adults, with smooth, natural sounding dialogue. Off the top of my head, there's LoGH, Monster, Cowboy Bebop, Eva, Mushishi (maybe?).

I struggle with most anime I watch. At times it can get really frustrating.

We're on the same boat. I've been watching less and less anime per season because I cringe so hard whenever I hear those shitty voices. I can instantly drop an anime just because of its voice acting.

It's a cartoon. Do you think Americans talk like Bugs Bunny or something?
