Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Toshiki Inoue
Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: One of the major criticisms of his writing can be summed up in this (at least after Agito). The situations are always bleak and will seemingly never work out, main characters are usually jerkasses of varying levels and the few nice guys there exists are usually Butt Monkeys.
Mis-blamed: To some degree. At least, Kamen Rider Hibiki's changes were Executive Meddling-based and if he'd refused to make them, they'd have gotten someone who would. The Kamen Rider W / Kamen Rider OOO crossover being so far from what we expect of the OOO cast was due to it being written at the same time as the premiere (basically, he had to write something taking place after the Tajador's Combo's debut - that's episode twenty - while episode one was still being written.) Therefore, when it comes to at least some of the more recent complaints about him that Kamen Rider fans have, we're talking things couldn't have been any better under anyone else. When Poor Communication Kills goes Up to Eleven to the point that a sane cast would have resolved many a 50-episode plot in five, it's Inoue. When astonishingly, writing an episode in the 20s when all you have to work from is a rough draft of episode 1 doesn't go so well, it's called being only human.
