I am going to start by saying that I am sick of the stereotypical naive girl role. ie Nyu in Elfen Lied and Miharu from Girls Bravo. Feel free to express what you think is overused in anime.

I dont even criticize an anime for being Cliche. Any entertainment media came from something, anime isnt different. I say enjoy the anime for what it is

Eh, that other forum was meant for simple listings of anime Cliches. This one is for you to list which ones you hate.

Not sure if its a cliche but, I hear the phrase "Oh well, it doesnt matter" or something along those lines a lot. Sounds like "Mai-e-ka" or something in Japanese

It was an old thread anyway.

1. End of the world
2. Characters that are only there for fan service and have no significances to the plot but being there.
3. The extremely ditsy and annoyingly clumsy female.
4. The cold distant character.
5. The irritating talking animal.
6. Characters who you thought died but somehow came back to life.
7. Flashbacks!
8. Harems
9. Making long speeches in the middle of a huge battle when they should be fighting.
10. Overly exaggerated, against the laws of human physics, breasted characters.
11. Gaining an enormous amount of power at the last possible moment of having your ass handed to you.
12. The sweat drop.
13. A strange humanoid creature that either falls from the sky, has lost their memory or is found in suspended animation and eventually ends up living in your home with usually disastrous consequences.
14. For some reason teenagers are always the only ones left to defend the world.
15. Girls seem to always be attracted to the spineless, geeky, character with no backbone.

"Must upgrade the power of my weapon....by bettering myself as a person!!!"

Also love triangles are no fun...you know...the ones where a girl is so sure she is in love with a guy, up until the moment another guy tells her he likes her. Don't mind the ones where two people (or several people) vie for the same person, though.

I feel the same way=.=................Take Fairy Tail, I like how Natsu[has pink hair] and is.......we'll say angrier than the typical shonen character; he dosen't need to upgrade,because he's already powerful-and is famous.Everything that Naruto is taking 300 episodes to do. Sure there's the talking cat,but the series let's you forgive that with it's heavy sarcastic tone. There's the fire-style-jutsu attack,and a man named Kage disturbingly simlar to Shikamaru,who uses killer shadows as well.....also, the annoying well-endowed herione,who can't fight for anything, and the cold/distant,almost predictable-type character-except he's not.He's a bit messed up like Sasuke,but had enough brains to take the right turn in path[and not betray his best friend].

Hey thanks for the input. Sorry about the rehash. I just think animes, just like other forms of entertainment, should be criticized over originality to prevent the "I'm gonna cash in on something because it's popular" mentality. Economically this mentality makes sense but that does not provide a constructive atmosphere for original ideas or thought provoking. I will admit nothing is original anymore, but some things are more original than others. Anime fans need to vote with their money in order to change an over saturated anime scene. Maybe I'm a minority in this, and that all of the animes out there are masterpieces. I guess I just want something different. Is that too much to ask for?

- Protagonists who don't see the "whole picture" just a bit of it. What is called the; "eh? huh" syndrome

^ as it stands, the characters have a few words when they start their sentence. They start with either "eh" or "huh?"

Sena, Tsuna and Ryugamine falls prey to this lots of times.

In Ryugamine's case, he just sulks in his room (in the latter part of the episode) not knowing what's happening around him. He even dropped Kida's call and went to sleep.

In Tsuna's case, he's practically a whiner. He doesn't want have anything to do battling and becoming a "mafia boss"

---

"fake romance"

- Yeah, even Yagiri Seiji admits it
- Ouran (IMO)

The reason you dont see a giant influx of original ideas because of 2 reasons.

1. Practically any anime or manga has done it before
2. If it hasnt been done before, then its probably a really stupid idea

But of course there have been anime that have passed.
