The bratty adolescent protagonist, as long as the anime does a good job as a coming-of-age story. It's always nice to compare a character from their whiny/weak self in episode one to their developed, mature self at the end.

For plotlines, saving the world never really gets old, does it?

Ambivalent villains with multi-layered personalities and motivations.

One of anime's strengths, I think, is how they avoid cardboard "evil" types, and give the villains complex personalities.

That kind of thing can never be overused, IMO.

I like when one character shows up, and has this epic walk or stare, which shows that the character means business.
I never get tired of those scenes

Something like slapstick slice-of-life anime such as:

Ichigo Mashimaro
Kyou No Go No Ni
Lucky Star

K-On (slightly a bit different genre, but just a bit)

For me I have always wanted to see an Anime that takes place in a prison (if there is one out there I apologize)
do kind of a Shawshank Redemption kind of thing. Why not? If we can have anime's about working in a goddamn restaurant we can have a character driven Prison Anime.

Watch Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin. It's pretty much what you're looking for.

Dense, klutzy, average looking guys who attract beautiful women by doing nothing at all in harems and ecchis.

I never tire of the servant x master animes, especially those with a younger male protagonist and an older male protector. Examples include PandoraHearts, Makai Ouji, Kuroshitsuji, and Hakkenden.
I also love slice of life anime centered around a group of male friends (like Free!).

I just want to make it clear that I don't prefer the cast to be mostly male because of some yaoi or shipping fantasy. I just think males make for better stories.

I want to see more ass kicking demon girls somehow being together with totally powerless humans and wondering why the people are scared if her eyes glow at them even if she just is a bit angry and not yet killing angry
