I know it, but it still strikes me as unreadable.

It's like a frankenstein of a language that wants to be C# but is like 1/3 c++/stl in how its interfaces look.

plus source level templates - cool sort of, but another cppism.

I find it actually easier to read and port between C# and c++ despite them being so different, because they're at least consistent about their differences. To the point where you can often do editor find replace (-> to . for example) to do a lot of the work for you. The point is, it's a lot more regular. All size() becomes Count. The iterators are pointers, they don't have a bunch of weird methods on them in C++.

It's just straightforward. Reading, writing, porting and thinking in java is creaky or clunky, IMO.

I can't even put my finger on all of it. I just don't like it.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
