"out on a business trip."

That doesn't apply to anime, that applies to Japan, it's more along the lines of cultural behavior. Someone else if free to elaborate.

Anyways, I think we have a similar thread else where but I'm too lazy to find it or contribute. You can find most of these stuff on TV Tropes too.

In animes that deal with school, if the main teacher is female she is most assuredly single and insecure with her relationships. She also usually has a very violent side to her when students don't listen to her. If the teacher is male he is always care free, immature, and usually not the brightest.

In action anime where the two fighters (they usually have swords, or some kind of weapon) run towards eachother, strike at the same time and end up on the opposite side of eachother, both showing theirs backs and standing completely still. Then there is a moment of suspense where you are left to wonder "who got hurt?" or "who won?" Then fighter A falls on their knees, then fighter B falls down completely, while fighter A stands back up.

That's one I could think of off the top of my head.

Main characters in high school always sit in back of the classroom beside windows. Lovely Complex broke the ground by placing characters in center of the classroom.


and in Kimi ni Todoke Sawako sat in the front at the beginning.

Toradora follows the sitting in the center of the classroom formula too. I hadn't even thought about it until your post.

annoying characters.. trunderes, moe, schools, guys cross dressing as girls, unreasonable hair colors (pink, green, blue) girls with ribbons in thier hair, characters who end their sentences with annoying shit like desu, kuma, wan, nya, gero etc

I've seen about 50 different anime, and not once do I think I've seen any character running to school with toast in their mouth.(Well I saw it parodied in Sora no Otoshimono, but still..)

What genre of anime usually does this? I'm assuming slice-of-life?

yeah and how lazy are the japanese when they pronounce some english words such as Television - Terribi, also Personal Computer - Paso Com just 2 words that i could think of from the top of my head. (unless of course those words are actual japanese words, which would me look like an idiot, but it'll still annoy me nonetheless).

I believe they are the actual Japanese words (terebi and pasokon). Engrish would be more like instead of saying Hello, it'd be "Herro".
Example in anime:


At the very least, I can say their 'Engrish' is better than non-Japanese or person not fluent in or learning the language trying to speak it and simply use words they only know like 'baka' and stuff.

The protagonist being the only one who can solve problems just because he's the main character. In shounen we see this a lot, when people go all, "(protagonist) is the only one who can do it!"

And afterwards, all the -supposed- strong characters seem to only depend on him, and fail at everything.
