there are many trope that comunity think it is alredy abused that make many people called them cliche, but is there any abused trope that yourself actually thinking "i think it's reasonable, i don't mind about it."?
for me:

> good guy danse harem MC

usually, danse protag ended have much better personality than let's said outside of it and piss me off many time and make me wonder why they fall for them in the first place. let's said pervert or asshole harem MC.

> missing parent protag

seriously, usually soo many people protest about this, but in recent chapter of BnHA


seriously it's make me like what? what's wrong with a parents care about his son when they are on danger? it's realistic. those rant really make me shake my head. it's already happened with world trigger, but WT don't really have big fanbase on forum so it's not really make big fuss. and the mother doesn't really show it directly. after though about it, i think missing parent is become pretty understable.

do you also have things like this?

Lolis, every sports anime and battle shounen trope, and probably tons of others

The mc that lives for revenge. Give him/her a reasonable excuse for it and it's at least entertaining.
Modified by geralt, Apr 23, 2016 5:15 AM
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

Some character types I'm totally cool with that I don't even mind if they're cliche, like kuuderes. Snotty rich boys are also neat.

But in a non-character sense, I don't care too much about predictable plots, especially when it comes to simpler series like sports anime or comedies.

I'm actually okay with most, even the dreaded tsundere one if it's not too exaggerated. And like the user above me said, for non-character tropes, I don't care one bit.

I'm either fine with or neutral on most tropes; a lot of them boil down to the execution.

But for the tropes that I don't like, there's not really any way I can see them playing out that I'd enjoy. For example, the "character is going to miss the deadline for X but they show up at the last 0.231414 milliseconds." It's boring and incredibly predictable. I never enjoy that.
Even for tropes that I tend to dislike - such as violent and abusive tsundere - there's usually at least one exception.

Do you have an exception for your dislike of barely-reached deadlines?

Hmm. After thinking about it, I'm not sure whether to consider Saitama from One Punch Man showing up late to the fight and finishing enemies as an example of "barely reached deadlines".

I'm leaning more on the "no" side though. It's similar but still different. So I guess no, there are as of yet no exceptions I've came across where I've actually enjoyed that trope playing out. When the point of the trope is to cause tension - will the MC make it in time, will the MC be too late - it doesn't really work because it's obvious that they will make it. Take the last episode of Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry where Ikki nearly forfeits his match because he was going to be late. The entire first half of that episode was centred on whether or not he would make it. It was a waste of 10 minutes because he was clearly never going to miss that fight.
It just bores me, personally.

The One Punch Man example is the closest one I can think of, but it's still fundamentally different. So I'm hesitant to call that an exception.

I actually like most of the harem tropes. Originality is fine, but when a harem anime simply presents the same character personalities I've seen in a dozen other shows, the familiarity doesn't annoy me; it just feels comfortable. I'm perfectly fine when:

-A girl pretends to dislike the MC but secretly likes him.
-The MC accidentally does a face plant into a girl's panties.
-Girls say outrageous things in an emotionless monotone voice.
-Girls fondle each other's breasts.
-The MC is a good guy but everyone thinks he's a pervert.
-The perverted rival tries to steal the girls away from the MC but nobody takes him seriously.
-A girl shows up claiming to be engaged to the hero.
-A girl doesn't understand the social taboo of nudity and frequently takes her clothes off in front of the MC.

raku is actually good (i mean as character) protag, but the story and the girl suck soo hard. most of danse MC is like that. the character is okay, the environment around it is the one that mostly suck.

The blindspot blowjob.
It's when the MC gettin a blowjob in a public place but people didn't realize because the one giving it is on a blindspot.

The one doing the NTR is Gamagoori.
It's when the one doing the NTR is always bigger than the one that got NTR-ed.

Since my previous post was deleted (because I only lited, I guess), I give my reasons now:

-Badass in suits: Because kicking the ass of your enemy in a suit makes you 10000 times more cool.
-Nice guy main character: Edgy protagonists are okay in my book, but I don't mind nice human beings too.
-Derederes: Sweet, lively, not meanie girls are the best. I also don't mind kuuderes and danderes.
-Yangires: Because I love when a girl go nuts for other reason than love.
-MC friend in harems and bros in general: They usually are likeable and cool.
-Assholish, crazy or mangnificent bastards villains: Because their antics tend to be really funny, amusing or entertaining to see. If one villain fits all the criterias at once, better (like Hazama from Blazblue).

That MC friends that is 1000x times better that the MC but nobody cares and everybody treats him like a pain in the ass. Like Shu over Ichijou in Nisekoi

One that i really really REALLY hate is the typical bad guy overpowered that acts like a superior being but being sadistic and doing strange faces and saying sexual things every time that kills someone, man, they are annoying AS FUCK.

I like villain characters but with a respectable attitude, those who have an aura of mystery and respect surround them, not those who says "I LOVE YOU DESESPERATION FACE" while masturbating and turning Yandere.

I'm generally fine with most character tropes as long as the characters are well designed. Yandere when it's not Yuno from Future Diaries.

I kind of like most tropes? Like I'm really into the anime subculture references and I like to see that familiarity in series that I watch. I'm also okay with totally fresh series that avoid tropes, but mostly I think I just don't pay attention to things like that.
If you want to hear more of my opinions, my husband and I discuss anime bi-weekly on the Weeb and Tonic podcast, hosted on youtube. I wouldn't consider this advertising, since we don't get paid for it, but we're always looking to discuss further than I can on the forums, so feel free to join us!

"Wolf in sheep clothing" kind of guy in shoujo series. Well, the kind of guy who's nice outside but extremely brutal towards the heroine. I just can't hate this guy. Even more so when the heroine is the meek/innocent type that won't change anything by being paired with similarly nice/innocent guy. Takumi in Kaichou wa Maid sama is the perfect example of this.

Well not exactly like a tsundere? Because they really do hate everything, or at least think they do.
