So, um... I was looking at this the other day and I noticed there was some really unfitting examples. While I removed some of the worst offenders(Neon Genesis Evangelion
is not meant to have viewers enjoy the suffering that occurs in it, and the characters are at least intended to be sympathetic. Haruhi Suzumiya
has sympathetic characters and not that much real suffering the draw being in their interactions and the plot. Lucky Star
is a Slice of Life Comedy with no real suffering, and, again, characters who are at least intended to be likable regardless of if the viewer likes them or not. Matilda
is entirely about a likable character who gets back at the ones who made her suffer), there are still some things on there that I'm very much certain are not intended to be Sadist Shows. The page asserts that all Harem Anime are sadist shows, and while I haven't really watched many at all I'm pretty sure that's not the case.
are listed in the comics section, as well...
There's something wrong here, either in the examples or the description to cause these examples. However, the description directly mentions that there can't be any sympathetic characters in the work if it's a Sadist Show
and the main draw has to be suffering.
Is there something that can be done here? I honestly think it's kind of insulting to a lot of these works to just say that their only appeal is the suffering of the characters(which doesn't even happen in some examples).
