Tropes I love:
When totally different parties are coupling up (become lovers!).. so when a total optimist gets a pessimist as GF or when a human gets a demoness.. when predator and prey end up being together.. things like that.

[Sidenote:
When someone powerful gets together with someone powerless, I hate it when the powerless gets powers added to match up the other... why do that? The people are fine as they are! -> In R+V Tsukune does not need any vampire powers.. whats the deal with Moka being stronger? Is this some kind of eviration if the boy is not as strong or stronger as the girl?!]

Tropes I hate:
Very strong characters that get more and more overpowered during the show.. or complete whimps that suddenly get some super powers and beat the evil that lurked in the shadows for centuries.

Like:
Kuudere characters. They are attractive to me tbh.
Fanservice for both genders. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of anime like that.

Dislike:
Boobs that bounce by themselves as if they were alive. It must hurt. Poor large-breasted anime girls. Seriously.
When the guy falls on the large-breasted girl and he ends up touching her boobs. How 'bout no.

Hate:
Tragic villains.
Characters stricken with E.S.A.O.K.S.
(excessively stupid amount of kindness syndrome)
Heroes who's idea of saving the world is becoming best friends with an evil villain.
Villains that cry like pansies once they lose.
Trap and reverse traps(they're only fine in some anime shows that call for it).
Terrible exaggeration of tsunderes.
Harem and reverse harems.

Love:
Giant robots kicking ass.
Pink haired girls with a sweet personality.
Potential badasses.
Anti-heroes .
Vulgarity.
Anything else that isn't listed as Hate .

I have the exact same loves and hates xD, also anime parodies are one of the few types of comedy animes I find funny since it doesn't rely on Japanese play on words, multiple meanings for some words, Japanese pop culture references or other things that are then explained in a paragraph about why it's funny xD

i think my number one most hated trope is probably the loli thing. for example, moon phase: 20-something year old guy meets 14 year old girl and suddenly starts falling for her. i don't care how socially inept he is with the girls, or how much of a nice guy he is... it's still disturbing as hell. the "kissing cousins" trope falls close behind that one. also can't stand recap episodes. it feels like a total waste of time. sure, if you're watching a bunch of episodes in a marathon, you could skip it... but it really sucks if you're watching it every week and you waited a week just to see a recap... there you go, folks... you waited all that time and you just got a recap episode. about the only time i've ever enjoyed a recap was samurai champloo which was just plain hilarious.

on the other hand, i always love the milfy, sake-drinking older woman character type. some of my favorite characters have been those... i.e. urd (AMG), kitsune (love hina), tsunade (naruto), kazehana (sekirei), etc. etc....

Tropes I Hate:

Constant Flashbacks

Episodes where nothing happens except gearing up for the next episode where something does happen AND/OR long drawn out fights (Naruto is a perfect example of this, half the time I'll be like ok I'm going to watch an episode and then it's 30 minutes of people explaining how they got the the position they are at that quickly and then each ninja uses one move and then that's the end of the episode.

This is love about anime (don't know if they are tropes):

Interesting art styles (really digging Attack on Titan's style and liking Another as well)

Engaging plots

Other stuff lol who knows...

cutting long hair to short hair as a sign of change, trope.

^ hate with a passion


I have to concede with you.

But let me mark that Hanekawa Tsubasa is the sole exception, because the de facto states that she looks better with short hair.

Edit: Shironeko is of an different entity, so I am not including her.

The 'Dere' personality trope has just never sat well with me, it just seems like a good way to brush off a characters general personality.

"Oh! She's just the stereotypical yandere." or "What a himedere, I hope they take her down a peg."

These tropes always seem to be associated with female characters, and thus, their personalities and general character traits are shelved off under a premade title and judged. And while it is certainly cute, to a certain extent, I get sick of hearing about 'dere' traits when I'm trying to enjoy something.
