It could be trends or just little things that annoy you within anime. Note that that these things could even be apart of your top favorite anime.

For me, I must like or at the very least, able to stand the main character. A lot of animes have a young main character, very energetic, quick to be defensive of his/her flaws and it takes like 26 episodes before they develop a mature side. I prefer a main character whose already matured, somewhat laid back yet has conviction, strategic but gets shit done when need be.

I generally have low tolerance for the instances where the author introduces a character so powerful to the point where they can only be defeated by some illness. There are times when there is adequate set-up for this so as not to appear like a complete ass-pull, such as Fist of the North Star (you might know who I'm talking about), but most of the time it becomes a plot device when one writes themselves into a corner. Naruto is especially bad with this.

When there's no explanation for an illness or an inaccurate diagnosis or portrayal of an illness. Example Marie from Sister Princess, she's supposed to have anemia but she has normal energy and shows nothing that points towards anemia and more towards a really bad immune disease and even then it's blown completely out of proportion, a little water splashed on you in summertime even in a person with a bad immune system won't make you go delirious, faint, and get close to death.

Seconding cheap disease plot devices. Clannad AS is a perfect example of that.
Also this whole thing about colds. Are Japanese all Grass or Dragon types and thus super weak to cold? It's often treated as if they're near death when they've just walked through the rain a bit.

That covers a lot of them yes.

Also;

People fighting to the death, but still taking the time to explain in depth about their fancy magical attacks and techniques. Might as well bring some some tea and biscuits then.

Gundamjacking. Especially if it's done by a kid, the younger the worse. And in extension, the presence of spoiled shitheaded kids in mecha or other fighting based series unless clearly justified. NGE and the original Gundam both had their respective excuses, but that's about it.

And somewhat in relation to the above, snotty and blindly idealistic kid protagonists. Banagher from Gundam U is a perfect example, blabbering about how everyone else are bad warmongering people even when he himself takes part in it.
Honestly, we've seen these moronic brats a thousand times already, why do they keep popping up, it's not like it's fun watching them pull those moronic love&peace quotes out their ass one after another.

And anyone bringing a sword to a gunfight.

So-and-so is an average high-school student that just wanted to have a quiet life until a girl falls out of the sky. And of course he doesn't appreciate his fortunate situation and is always trying to get back to his boring daily routine.

Same old jokes incoming, but of course everyone still loves it because the girl is sooo cute. Awwww... :C~

One thing I dislike about anime is how they put out a 12 episode season, end it right when it gets good, and then take 3 years to put out a sequel, if they ever do it at all.

Also sometimes when you see a female character from the side, since all of them have the small curved nose, sometimes they draw the face to stick out too far, and be too thin, and the character looks like a dog.

Harems are good when done right. Unfortunately to love ru and IS( not as bad as to Love Ru) make them look VERY bad. I hate Rito.

Oh, and any obsessing over the ocean. You know the whole getting hot and bothered whenever they reach the beach or blathering about how they've never seen the ocean before.
I mean, seriously, Japan is a bloody island nation, how the fuck can someone live their entire life without seeing the ocean? and even if they've never bothered slogging down to it, then they should at least have a general idea of what it's like, big, blue and wet, and have no reason to get their panties in a bunch when they see it.

Awesome and pretty comprehensive list.
Adding to it:

- even though it's a life or death battle MC+s gonna explain his skill/powers in detail to the enemy
- yelling makes you stronger
- a character that had lived all of his/her life in America/Europe/wherever moves to Japan and speaks Japanese perfectly
- If there's hero his rival is bound to appear as well
- girls that are 16-17 years old look as i they're 12 (moe titles I'm looking at you)
- villain trying to destroy the world for no particular reason
- cat ears (arrghhhhhhhh, what's with that, is it supposed to be sexy, cute, what?)
- transfer students (seriously, where do all of them get transfered from)
- overused chibi forms of characters (The Wallflower, Kaichou wa Maid-sama)
- MC's parents are dead
- the moon is always full, and whenever shown it's huge as if you're looking through a goddamn telescope
- ''Zettai yurusanai''
- ''Masaka''
- ''I'm going to put an end to this''
- ''THAT'' (as already mentioned; is this supposed to be suspenseful)
- Every town has a picturesque artificial riverbank with sidewalk
- MC just wanted to be normal/accepted/like everybody else/live normal life, but he was the only one who could save the universe (so long, peaceful life)

-The lack of originality

-The lack of serious, deep and intellectual anime

-Anime being a [the original source] advertising

-When you can turn off the audio (or subs) and you can still follow the anime

-Harem/Ecchi/Moé and other stuff that are killing the anime industry

-The voice acting sucks for new anime. They heavily rely on the VAs popularity rather than his/her talent

-Some companies are milking the hell out of some titles despite becoming really horrible

Things you generally dislike about anime ka...
*Space out for awhile*

When there's a character that rarely given enough script to say anything other than keep using one or two English in attempt to make western viewers feels "harmony"

Anime that using English lyrics opening, it make me felt like watching a "cartoon"

Oh, and any title or OP song lyrics that have some english word placed i them seemingly at random with little to no relation to the rest of it.

Also really bad Engrish, like "Morvabul Flame" or when you see a PC screen "Downroading" something. Seriously, using a spellcheck can't possible be that hard.

Do you even like anime? Same question for everyone else who agreed with him.


Lol I was wondering the same thing. Some people seem to whine more than others. As for me, the only thing that I generally dislike about anime is...hmmm....I guess those super lame/weak male MC that are usually found in harem anime. I mean I hate how they aren't manly in any way and can't make up their mind about anything...ugh they are truly lame. Of course it doesn't help that most of these anime are based of h-games but still, c'mon!

Edit: Oh and I forgot; I hate all those stupid moments where a character can use some kind of power one moment, but couldn't before or after. Usually happens in shounen animes.

Basically, all the clichés mentioned thus far.

Personally, not a big fan of fanservice this, fanservice that, as it kind of became a cliché itself. It's like... if I really wanted that I'd watch an ecchi or something. ._. Not like it needs to be in every series. Just a weird peeve, I tend to ignore it often. Considering I liked Faye in Cowboy Bebop just due to her character, maybe I overlook it too often...

I haven't watched a ton of anime, admittedly, but I can only think of few titles that avert this; Haibane Renmei surprised me since it didn't seem to have an ounce of it.

Basically... anything sexually implied especially when out-of-place. :/ Like Kimura in Azumanga Daioh, the implied pedophilia just really seemed to clash with the mood most of the time. It's not that having a male main character was necessarily bad, but they could've had someone else.

Overpower character like Sebastian.
Bad manner one like that MC from He is My Master.
I randomly bought discount/second hand manga with cute/mysterious cover.

Fanservice in general, and any vaguely serious anime or scene when SUDDENLY COMEDIC MOMENTS AND TITS. Goddamned mood whiplash.

Also yeah, pretty much everything else mentioned here. Especially the entire seat placement thing, it always bugs me when the main guy ends up always sitting in the same damn seat no matter what series it is.

Yea, I used to sit there too, second from the back by the window, and I can tell you, there's nothing special about it, I never even got a harem.

I don't like it when the show dedicates itself to a certain fan type. Like a mecha show with just a bunch of mechs fighting or a moe show with all moe. It seems if they focus on one fan group the writing story and basically everything suffers.

like those shows that scream "hey if you are into fanservise you'll like this show" or "if you like lots of violence youll like this show" and so on.
and Ill be honest some times those types of show are good but very rarely.

its not that mech shows, moe shows or whatever are bad, its just bad if they only try to grab that type of audience and do nothing else.

Well I hate it when a good anime is ruined by fan service instead of sticking to the story and character development. Nowadays...that's in every single anime it seems. Everyone just has to cut off from the general development and progress of characters relationships or story to put in some random bimbo or loli for the pedos.

Oh and I really dislike it when they use rape as a story base... it's just messed up imho. I dropped several anime cause of that. Just disgusts me.

Tsunderes, yanderes and little girls that go on psychotic killing sprees

Also that strange idea that the Japanese have... that a High School romance is the deepest most meaningful relationship you'll ever have.

Every weak male character in harem series.
Every super dense male character in harem series.
Every airheaded girl in every series (Inoue, Nagisa etc.)
Every hidden supermoves in shounen series
Every male main character in shounen series that last over 100 episodes
The scene used in every shounen series ever made, someone shoots impossibly strong enemy with like bazooka and then there's smoke and every1's like "Did we get him..? Oh no it can't be.. HE IS ALIVEEEEEE!"
Every left handed swordman who use their right hand as their weapon hand
Robots

And many many other things

You obviously haven't seen Hokuto no Ken then.
Alas, if only every shounen lead was a real man like him.

The amount of bad anime every season. It seems that otakus need so many of those slices of life to fill their own lives.
