if you're still sensitive to this type of thing you definitely need to watch more new anime.
It's the phenomenon where you absolutely love a few specific things about an anime, so you suck it up and watch the entire series. Kind of like being addicted to WoW, you take the bad because it makes the good that much better. Whether Yako in Neuro, Hinagiku and Sakura in HnG, Hecate in Shana, this is a situation you must get used to.
