1. Pointless anime fillers like oh.... 100 some odd Naruto filler episodes WTF!?!?

2. That one anime guy character who always has that gay "air" about him.

3. When you have a hell of strong character and then you have the army or people shooting crap at him and it has no effect. "WTF YOU CANT HURT HIM!!!! GIVE UP"

4. When characters in a anime get "lucky" when they fight they are clearly getting their ass handed to them and all of the sudden some burst of strength comes out of nowhere and the decimate everything.

5. Pointless supporting characters who are no where even close to par with the main character. I.E. they are always needing to be saved, helpless, worthless, etc.

6. REALLY REALLY $@#*(&@*& annoying characters that make you think "WTF!?" as to why they are even a character in the anime.

Theres probablly more but meh.

lol yay all good things, yeah that sick thing irks me, even more so when the character is all big and bad and strong when it comes to fighting then when they get a lil cold all of a sudden they can't handle it...

Don'tmind: I so agree I'm like ok sometimes it can be funny but its like really pointless unless its in like straight hentai

jan10002: I so agree thats what i meant man sometimes even cartoons can push it lol

Yes I really really hate the love triangle its so over done, can't a couple be happy for once, with couple angst

yeah and I get annoyed when they have foreign characters in manga or anime and don't translate what they say like everyone speaks those languages, or just when they have american ones and they always have guns b/c all americans carry guns, I guess in american animation they stereotype asians too so its kinda fair lol but ya... I get what your saying lindork

it depends I sometimes like the sports festival, if it somehow links into the show, like in Azu

and I never really understood the annoyance with fillers until I jsut watched fruits basket yesterday and a whole episode of this chick talking about her love for Yuki I was like what the lol

Oh and it really annoys me too when characters say flat out "I'm in love with you" and they are still like " Does he/she hate me" or something else retarded its like suppose to be for drama but come on...oi

wow it feels great talking about this with other ppl

When Sakura walks in on Dokuro and his head is taken off.
And the fact that Ichigo is immortal. Within about 15 episodes, he fights (SPOILER) Kenpachi, Bykuya and Aizen. He probably should have lost maybe an arm or a leg. And, doesn't he need any blood donations? Seriously.

First off it has to be those scenes in Dragon Ball and any spin-off or sequels of it. We know they are going to fight but they prolong it by having the characters stand around and stare at the enemy. What is this a staring contest? Sometimes they just stand there waiting for the enemy to show up for long period of time. Another thing is how the hero dies and goes to heaven only to come back several times just cause the world has nobody else to save it.

Next on my list is also like someone said before, Love triangles. I hate those not only in anime but in dramas too. They've been used way too many times, and come on are there any person pathetic enough to try and get in a relationship with someone who obviously likes someone else.

Another one I dislike happens to be a whole genre, that is the magic girls. Although the girl has magical powers, why does she still need guys to come to her rescue?

I'm really annoyed with dumb characters, who seem to have an IQ of 0 and act like crybabies over trivial matters. Yet they are lucky with friends to help them out also a lover that's smart to guide them. Come on is anyone smart going to be genuinely interested in airheads? Spend the rest of their lives just covering their face in shock everytime the stupid one figures something out that any normal person would know. It's like "I'm amazed you're alive with the way you think there's just too many ways you could have died".

We also have so many perfect male characters. They are cute, smart, sometimes funny but sometimes cold. Female characters on the otherhand we have very few characters I would say are perfect, we have way too many klutzs that it's hard to take them seriously. I know it's just cartoons but come on we don't have to have pathetic characters. Even some of the smarter female characters sometimes slip up and you just want to say "baka" while the smart guys never seem to mess up.

That's all I can think of right now.

This thread should have been called 'annoying anime clichés' or something along those lines.

Personally I can't stand the hour-long battles or the main character who, out of nowhere, suddenly discovers that he possesses an amazing ability.

I also am pretty tired of the scene where a male character trips and falls, only to land on a female character and realize his face is buried in her chest. Alternately, Male Character trips and grabs onto something to break his fall. It just so happens to be Female Character's chest.

Hair. Hair is indestructible in anime unless it's cut off. Even then it grows back by the next episode unless there's some joke or story purpose to the loss of hair.
I mean honestly, hair can survive KAMEHAMEHAAAAA and nukes.

Oh God. That reminded me of something else in anime that I loathe: the name of a move/attack is ALWAYS announced. Thankfully I don't really watch a lot of DBZ-type shows, so I don't see this often. However, Prince of Tennis is quite fond of it. gpsegpsd I fucking know it's Boomerang Snake/Twist Serve/Higuma Otoshi/etc. I don't need it announced every single time.

Orange_Vertigo: I was thinking the same thing I am pretty sure Ichigo should of had at least a dozen blood transplants by now he loses like 30 gallons of blood each episode.

ngox: I am thinking the same thing no matter what happens to an anime character their clothes can be shredded and burnt off until they are but naked and their still maintains that perfect shape.

bach_ngoc17: Yeah just about every DBZ big battle is the two people who are going to fight talking for about 7 episodes saying how much they hate each other or telling their life story to each other before they fight and they dont move from the spot or anything they just allow each other to speak their minds before they go into battle. Or after someone has been beaten there is another 3 episodes where the person lies on the ground dying the winner standing over them and they are still talking WTF!?!?!

I like how all the flashbacks during fights can take up 10 chapters/episodes when the fight only takes 2. Especially in repeated flashbacks like sasuke's (from naruto). Everyone already knows your brother killed your family. We don't need to see it for the 100th time.

Q: "How many DBZ characters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?"
A: "Only one, but it takes 10 episodes."
