it depends if the person is upholding their "blind justice" then yeah because they can be very narrow minded and not want to listen to other people. but then you get the normal justice that most people can relate to and that dosent bother me at all =)

As long as it not goes over the line, which is the problem of most anime characters.

It depends on how you look at it. But imagine the world without justice... horrible, isn't it?
But in the anime... Yes, I sometimes hate characters who always say "I fight for justice!" like Suzaku, Ueki, and Yuri. I mean, it's
lame. What is fair for them is not always fair for anybody else, right!?
I much prefer Lelouch, and maybe... The Gundam Meisters from Gundam 00. They fight for something more real, although sometimes it's selfish.
It's only my opinion of course.

Actually I don't really have much of a problem with talks of justice as long as it is backed up rationally (maybe flawed or not...). I mean Death Note is basically about two guys who fight one another because they have two different notions of what justice is and it was a really good plot in my opinion. Also, the justice of Kenshin in contrast to Sato and also Shishio was one that I also got interested in (Rurouni Kenshin).

However, talk of justice that is very much elaborated is hard to find in an anime. And often, most characters just blabber about it without using much reason at all (like Suzaku from Code Geass.... arggh) which does get irritating.

only when it's overdone.....
I do agree with what you said in KKM (his speeches DO get pretty annoying sometimes)
it also get annoying when justice is brought together with Shoujo manga elements (like in Sailor Moon =A=;;)

You'd see them as Lawful Good characters. Depending on what they do, I may or may not like them.

I would prefer it if the protagonist was being anal about the law.

Suzaku from Code Geass.

I dont think of light's version as truly 'justice', its more like creating an idealized world without any criminals by killing people. By doing that, the result may resemble justice, but how he is trying to reach it isnt. His feeling of 'justice' would be just fine if his mind wasnt so corrupted. Although saying all this, I really like Light.

But lets put the evil-kind-of-justice aside, how about the 'good' justice. Some I like, some I dont. An idiot trying to save the world and who almost died trying, and who actually succeeded in the end, thats very hard to believe. I think a one-man army trying to save the world is just too lame to explain in words. But thats just me.
