I enjoy:

* Tsundere things
* Yuri things
* Moe things
* Gothic clothing

What I really don't enjoy:

* Plot developments based on misunderstandings
* A character constantly not having the conviction to tell another character how they feel
* Upon a character getting romantically rejected, they decide to "not give up" with the object of their affections, instead of moving on

Hate:
Faux Loli's: I'm the same age as those around me, I just look like a little kid. Not fond of the Loli thing in general to be honest.

Hyper mobile boobs: I love boobs, but I prefer that they behave like boobs. They don't need to seem like they are quasi sentient chest orbs that are trying to escape from their host.

Every shot is an upskirt: I don't hate fan service. I really don't, but it doesn't have to be pervy.

The princess waiting to be rescued: "My only redeeming quality is that someone loves me." makes me want to throw up.


Love:
The love trapezoid or rhombus or whatever: So and so loves so and so who loves so and so who loves ... I want to hate this, but I don't.

Bad Ass Chicks: Major Kusanagi, Mikasa Ackerman, etc. Any female character who is as tough or tougher than the guys.

So smooth with attitude (the Ace): Ranma, Spike Speigel etc. " I'm good and I know it, care to try your luck?"

I like when the bad guys turn good-ish, and vice versa.

I'm no way a yaoi-watcher.

- When a character (friend) is interested in the activities you do. They follow you around like as if they were your brother. They're the kind that has that "what makes you tick" or what pushes you.

One anime that fits that trope like a glove

I like the badass chicks better when they're semi-stoic. I really like the stoic, emotionless characters for some reasons. I don't mind the faux loli's so much there's always short people or people who look a lot younger in the world. I do hate that only the creepers with loli fetishes are interested in them in the shows though.

However the hyper mobile boobs constantly irritates me. They move and then stop and they have to jiggle and flop around like they're caught in a jet stream. so annoying.

Love
Loli's/token mini moe (because they are freaking cute and awesome)
Face-heel turn (because it's epic when the good guy goes bad)
Heel-face turn (because it's epic when the bad guy goes good also)
Break the cutie (I just think it's an approach)
Broken Ace (I think it provides a good weakness to the character archetype)
Deconstruction (I just like these for reasons unknown to me)
Filler (don't judge)
Shadow Archetype (I like seeing the different ways a character could or could've turned out)
Little sister heroine (Becuase they are just awesome)
Really 700 years old (Because nothing's better than a character acting and looking way younger than they are only to troll everyone and say they're like decades centuries older lol)
Ineffectual loner
took a level in badass
Action girl
The Power of Freindship
twincest
Anti-villains
the man behind the man
Chessmaster
Hate
Complete monster
Random bouncing big boobs
tsunderes
Character derailment
Revolving heel-face door
Not blood siblings
Darkness induced audience apathy
Aesop amnesia

Love
Took a level in badass.
Harems (Not sure about reverse harems, but I've only seen two. Diabolik Lovers is gothic horror, so that doesn't actually count imo.)
Oppai!
Body Horror
Cute Monster girls/boys
Parodies (when well done.)
Neets Rule!
Hikikomori escapes
Monstrous Heroes
wincest
meganekkos
Action Girls
Secretly 700 years old

Hate
Sexy Lolis. (And yet two of my favorite characters ever fit the description.)
Tsundere. (I think this is because of how badly done most of them are. It's a hard archetype to do well, and I usually wonder why anyone puts up with the character.)
The double standard about abusing men vs women/ it's funny against a guy.
Ultra-whiny characters.
