What we call "Doki Doki Island" was originally "Nekojima Island" a cat-themed event with it's own dungeon. Nekojima was the original source of the cat-themed samurai armor that can be found in-game. But yes, I agree with the sentiment of Dokix2 being boring. First time, I did it seriously, second time, I spammed potatoes, I didn't bother with it after that.
I guess I'll point this out since everyone seems to be so focused on either the OP's literacy or lack there of, or whether or not Ninja is a newbie-friendly talent.
Goblins, Kobolds and Imps are monsters in Mabi that I have nicknamed "Newbie Killers". They are smallish, unassuming and overall fodder like in most RPGs. However, in Mabinogi, they have a much higher Critical Proc rate than most anything else. The exception to this are Imps, which are known for spamming Lightning Bolt. New Players tend to NOT have high defensive stats or armor early-game when they start encountering these mobs, and as a result of treating them like they are in every other RPG, they rush in and get Crit-smacked to death or roasted with lightning.
Regarding your choices of skills, by the sounds of it, you got to Expert Warrior and then switched to Ninja. This is both a smart and foolish choice. Smart in the sense that Ninja's Damage is calculated based on your Strength and Will stats, and Warrior is one of the largest sources of Strength. Ninja also gives you a ranged melee attack as your normal attack. This choices is Foolish in the sense that you are trading a trained up talent for a novice one, so unless you properly blend ranked skills from warrior into your combat with ninja, you will just not have all the damage potential you would as a full warrior.
There is also a fair bit of info lacking to offer better help. Such as weapon and skill choices you used when fighting as a warrior and getting crit-smacked around. Did you use Counter at all? Did you use Defense at all? Windmill? or did you just run in with Smash trying to OP-stomp them, only to have the attack order overwritten by the Kobolds using a Normal Attack or Counter? There are people out there willing to help you get better at mabi, but honestly, the Forums are one of the worst places to find it.
Everyone complaining about Gachas. Just give it a little time. The proverbial $#!^ Storm that EA/DICE has kicked up over Star Wars Battlefront 2 will end up branding all forms of Gachapon, Loot Crates, (Insert Micro-Transaction based chance item here), as Gambling, which by Law, is illegal for anyone to participate in if they are under the age of 21.
So again, give it time, We'll more than likely get Outfit Bags back as the way things are going, Gachas will become a thing of the past.
You're mildly offended by an animation... Of your character, while not equipped with any weapons.... Spinning around on his back and hands.... Kicking things....
Did I get that right? Honestly, I fail to see HOW you could be offended by a dance move from the 70s and early 80s that EVERYONE DID OR TRIED TO DO. Hell, that style of dancing isn't even restricted to just the US, other countries do it as well. So if you really wish to claim you are offended, please look beyond stereotypes or skin color.
All you will do is fuel the hate flames that are uncalled for on ALL SIDES.
Edit: I'd also like to point out that this exact same animation is used with Bows, Knuckles, Guns, Cylinders, Control Bars.... Pretty much every other non-melee based weapon we have. And I'm not 100% sure, but I think it does it when you have a weapon + Shield or only a single 1h weapon equipped.
