The one in which all the villans decide to have a loooong chat before they attempt their master plot and fail.
It makes me sad on the inside.

Animes with second seasons that dont follow the first season lol. Not much to complain about since watching animes with cliches r really funny and some with obivious cliches turn out to be not what you expect it to be. Animes are always going to have them because it makes a great story and an anime with none is pretty much impossible. You should expect it if you've seen many animes unlike people who have seen very few to notice them. Thats what i think anyways.

Maids
Cat ears
Unrealistically Endowed Females
Pointless Characters
Deus Ex Machina
Mary Sues
Idealized Characters
Villains getting defeated all the time
World domination
Ridiculous hairstyle
Unrealistic hair colours
Ms Fanservice

Maids and Cat ears piss me off. Seriously.

should i consider this a cliche? well anyway here's my say. uhum. those hyper super energetic genius naive clueless dense(when it comes to romance) girls who cant cook and who at the end will soon realize their feelings for this rich guy who is a martyr or whatsoever, protective, and keeps his true feelings to himself. - (im talking about maid sama and special a. im just kinda pissed with these two anime being similar, but strangely i still enjoyed them ). i dont know if this applies to some other anime too. haha ah there's also another hyper super energetic bla bla bla - mogami kyoko

Hmm...

-Deus ex Machina
-Characters that just have to explain everything that's going on via inner monologue
-Girls that can't wear anything but skirts
-Anime that at first make you think, "Oh, how cute!'" and then turn out to be lolicon (MILKY HOLMES!)

The things that annoy me most is the naive/dumb girl stereotype and the classical goal-reaching invulerable hero. Second is the reason why I don't watch fighting animes like Bleach or Naruto. First seems to be unavoidable, you find it in nearly every anime.

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.


Hey I genuinely enjoyed Nyu's innocence.

I think ecchi is overused in anime. But too much of a good thing isn't always bad for you. So long as ecchiness or any other overused stereotype doesn't replace any hints of personality I'm cool with it.

The strong, silent type characters in shoujo anime that ALWAYS looks the same. He is tall and has a buzzcut black hair. It's basically the same character.
Characters include:

Riken Yoshinokazura from Otome Youkai Zakuro


Ryu Sanada from Kimi Ni Todoke


I should note that I like both shows and both characters but the pattern gets annoying.

Main characters who are naive and get led around by all the other characters (usually girls). The main character of Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls is a perfect example of what I'm talking about.

Characters get knocked through stone walls but don't die.
