@Stark700: Agreed. Fillers -_- awful...
I know sometimes they need to put in episodes that aren't about the main story....which is ok...but it makes the anime longer *sigh*
Then again it does add new characters into those few fillers, but then we never see them again >.<

This is an excellent thread on what not to do 95% of the time if you want to stay original, I can't help but agree with most of the posts here. Still, when one of those annoyances come I typically tune it out and go back to enjoying whatever I was watching.
Also, I get sincerely annoyed when an anime finishes but only covers part of a manga. I also dislike when said series does a poor job of wrapping up the show.
Also while it annoys me when people describe their powers in battle, it really is just a lazy way of getting the audience to understand what's going on. Darker than Black is the perfect example(to me at least) on how to introduce powers without going "HEY MY POWER DOES YADA YADA YADA, I HOPE YOU DON"T TAKE ADVANTAGE!"

Screaming your move/attack like it'll make it ten times stronger
Screaming in anger and suddenly pwning the bad guy
Battles that span way too many episodes
Magical girl shows that have to show the entire transformation scene every single time they transform
Magical girl shows where the girls wear ridiculously short skirts. Have some modesty pl0x
Girls in general that wear ridiculously short skirts, especially school girls, and especially when it's based in Japan. So unrealistic. No school in real life Japan would let their students wears skirts right up to their ass.
Everytime the good guy is going to get pwned by bad guy, but oh wait! They have an overpowering move that 'they forgot' and kill the bad guy instantly, or when they randomly pull a move that will pwn out of their ass. It. Is. Ridiculously. Stupid.
Gravity defying boobs. They seriously do not need to be THAT huge. Almost every anime has this.
Character bleeding out ten gallons+ of blood and not dying
Female characters just for the sake of moe.
Harems. Some harems make no sense, and about ten girls fighting over for one whiny wimpy balless boy. That just defies reason. And even more so when all the guy wants is to go back to his boring old life. Too many anime like this
When a girl is naked and the boy 'accidentally' sees them, and the girl just screams, slaps, calls him pervert but forgives him and falls in love with him anyway. The overuse of this is just stupid.
I like bubble teaaa~ Bubble tea for meee~
I'll have it for breakfast, I'll have it for tea, a little each day is a good recipee~

There's a lot of stuff that I generally dislike, but the first two that came to mind was:
- A lack of subtlety (Including everything from exaggerated facial expressions to poorly used symbolism to antagonists being amoral, baby-eating Nazis, etc.)
- Cliches. Although this is common through lots of mediums.Cliches such as:
Heroine: Protagonist, although you are boring and ordinary, I loved you since the first Tuesday in March in 5th grade, when I saw you save a kitty/water the flowers.
Or characters going crazy by their eyes dramatically dilating, the camera zooming in, the camera shaking, repeating a phrase like "FALL!", etc.
Or the protagonist giving a speech about why he's helping out the heroine/being so noble, ending his speech with closed eyes and a smile. And the heroine looks extremely shocked before looking downwards, shadows covering her eyes and smiling, muttering "Idiot..." or something like that
Or like in Madoka's last episode,
when Sayaka disappears after her short scene. Then whatshisface, the violinist she loved, looks around, confused, muttering "Sayaka?"
There's a lot of cliche dialogues that one can just recite from memory.

things i hate about anime?
i don't like the obsession with cute characters and the bland art style most guys use in their anime.
I hate that people think that they have to resort to using cliches and fanservice to sell anime, I am a fan of the quirky humour the japanese use, but being weird for the sake of it is not good.
I would like the artists to come up with more unique artstyles , like tatami galaxy for example.
I also hate having to read subtitles when the anime is dialogue heavy and the characters talk really fast.
