Trends in anime can change quickly and unpredictably, as demonstrated by the prevalence of smug faces for anime characters several months ago. Recently, a new trend has emerged into the forefront: loli bullying.
Though instances of loli bullying go back to the early 2000’s, it wasn’t until recently that loli bullying became popular with shows like Bakemonogatari and Chuunibyou Demo Koi Ga Shitai! It was the 2016 spring season’s Kuma Miko: Girl Meets Bear, however, where the sport of loli bullying really found its stride towards becoming a staple in any slice of life anime.
A recent survey completed by Anime Maru’s statistics department suggested that loli bullying is now the fastest-growing trend in anime. With Kuma Miko having satiated even the most demented, disgusting fetishist for the spring season the new season of Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya bears more promise of excessive summer loli bullying.
You might be asking yourself, how does one go about bullying a loli? Some shows had lolis that specialized in getting physically bullied, like the aforementioned Chuunibyou:
But sometimes it’s just as easy to mentally bully a loli by reminding her that she’s a whiny little bitch who doesn’t deserve MC-kun’s swollen sin sword, as shown in Toradora!:
But for most people, like your average Anime Maru reader, it’s probably best to remember that you will never have a qt anime loli waifu to bully. Ever.
