It’s a synonym for “Toriyama bullshit” to me. (I like anime, I hate Toriyama). I get why people conflate the stupidities of XIII with anime, if they’re unfamiliar with the latter. All the spastic, physics-free leaping, plastic-skinned characters with perfect teeth and vacant eyes. All the 3rd grade dialogue and arcane mythological bullshit. I get the anger. They’re wrong about anime, but I get it nevertheless.
