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.
I touched upon a pure white Symphony,
but what color will our future dye it in?
In this world where the light dances freely,
I want to become a melody clad in radiance.
That one and only thing, we can draw it together.

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~

The laughing... it hurts so much!! xD hahahahahaha
The seating, so perfect!
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.

The fans?
"Hello. I came to talk. I've been thinking lately. About you and me. About what's going to happen to us, in the end. We're going to kill each other, aren't we? Perhaps you'll kill me. Perhaps I'll kill you. Perhaps sooner. Perhaps later. I just wanted to know that I'd made a genuine attempt to talk things over and avert that outcome. Just once. Are you listening to me? It's life and death I'm discussing here. Maybe my death... maybe yours. I don't fully understand why ours should be such a fatal relationship, but I don't want your murder on my... hands..."

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.
