I hate it when the graphics at the opening and ending songs are way better than episode content.

Off topic: Lolicon doesn't = Pedophile.... For those saying otherwise...

1. Not really anime itself but people who hate an anime just because its popular. Or say "I don't get how some one can like this."

2. When the love interest that isn't the main character in a love triangle is destined to not be with the the main character even though they are a better match for them.

#2 I know that feeling. I thought Zessica was a better candidate than Mikono in Aquarion Evol but we know how that turned out. Also of course, Oreimo. If you do want a pleasant surprise though I would recommend Ichigo100%, although some may disagree with me.

One trope of anime / manga that I personally hate is childhood promises. You know you usually have the guy make a promise with some chick at childhood, or vice-versa, and then they get separated (one moves away) and whoever the main character is pines about it for the next 10 years even though he has mostly forgotten about the girl. Basing your teenage romantic love life on a promise you made with a 5 year old girl/boy that you can't even properly remember is the stupidest premise for romance ever, even stupider than twilight, at least that can be attributed to lust. People change tremendously during childhood, which is why some animes that start off with this premise but end up with the main characters at odds with each other upon reuniting are actually quite entertaining, because the dream sort of falls apart.

I suppose one other is overly weak-willed / reserved main characters and violent female characters who think being a perv is the worst thing in the world. I find both of those really annoying, I end up thinking "grow a pair!" for the former, and "why do you have to be such a bitch, it's just porn!" for the latter.

The final thing would be convenient female/male love interests. This is pretty much exclusive to shojo and seinen manga / anime. Seinen stuff tends to have extremely idealized female characters, who tend to become 'things' very quickly, or rather simple accessories to the main character rather than characters of their own. In Shoujo manga on the other hand, every guy is portrayed as Mr. Perfect, he looks like the handsomest guy on the planet, he can do no wrong, he never fails, and he loves the main character unconditionally even though she is often a useless klutz. I really hate those types of characters, they don't feel like people, they feel like plot devices. Shonen action stuff (Naruto, HxH, Bleach other than Orihime, even DBZ with Chichi and No.18) tend to treat both male and female characters with a large amount of respect, I suppose that is why I like them the best. Even look at Hinata from Naruto, at first glance her infatuation with Naruto seems like one of those convenient plot devices, but it is not, she has a completely legitimate reason for it which connects to both her character development and Naruto's. Initially both Naruto and Hinata are failures, while Hinata feels like giving up, Naruto fights even though he often loses, but he struggles, and that turns into a source of hope for Hinata, and she begins to struggle, grow, and develop as a character. In Infinite Stratos and Highschool DxD, the female characters generally remain at a set level of strength throughout the whole thing, the main character develops, and they fawn over his development, they are accessories.

It always seems to be the girl that remembers, while the guy forgets. While there may be at least one case where it was reversed, I certainly can't think of one.

I AGREE WITH YOU ON SO MANY LEVELS.
I really don't like the completely obvious pairings in shojo anime. I really don't like those annoying tsundere girls who hate everyone but they somehow fall in love with the popular guy who is either the school bully/badass or some kind of prince. There's also the whole thing with the useless ditzy girl (eg. Tohru in Fruits Basket) who miraculously has a whole bunch of guys fawning over her. Something that also bothers me about this is she is usually an utterly bland character but has the Tragic Main Character Backstory™ so all the guys feel sorry for her and fall for her and she chooses the handsome dickhead prince.

Also in the shonen category how females are generally respected, that too. I usually hate female characters because of the way they are portrayed in shojo anime/manga, but I find that a lot of female characters in shonen things are pretty likeable.
For example, in Bleach, even though Rangiku is pretty much fanservice, her character is actually likeable and decent. Rukia, on the other hand, is the opposite. At first glance, she seems like a cool female character blah blah blah. But she's actually an annoying little bitch. Orihime is just annoying though, from beginning to end.
