Subject title says it all. I think we all have our pet peeves, but one thing that has really been getting to me lately is how often the cliff face cliche is blatantly abused in the exact. same. way. in so many different anime completely unrelated to one another.

What I mean by this is, someone climbs up or down a cliff and then all of a sudden (as if we didn't see it coming) a rock they're standing on or hold onto breaks and they fall and get injured or die. I usually spout expletives whenever I see this used.

It would be a total breath of fresh air if someone just climbed down a cliff and got to the bottom normally with nothing bad happening. I'd just be like HOLY !@#& THEY MADE IT!

How about you fine folks? What makes you want to flip a table or shut off the anime?

I hate seeing those small cartoon looking, short, pervy characters that are only used for perverted jokes.
A fine example would be this guy:



His name is Koma from Beelzebub. In the first few episodes he appeared in, he was a pervy annoying little shit that I despised. His involvement with the story is minimal. All he does is stick to Aoi and give her the ability to fight demons. Characters that serve little or no purpose to the plot and are only used to be perverted piss me off. Another example is Happosai in Ranma 1/2. He's a strong grand master but most of his antics are perverted: fondling underwear, chasing after women, trying to get the main character to get into women's clothing, etc. He's also super short and I find him annoying how he gets out of trouble by throwing bombs at the other characters.

tl;dr My pet peeve in anime is when there is a perverted, small, and annoying minor character that has little or no purpose to the plot, only for pervy jokes.

I think this was a thread already. Oh well. The cliche thing I dislike the most is, I guess the fact most main couples just can't seem to admit their feelings. Sometimes I get how there's a misunderstanding, and it would be hard to get your point across. But it's like there is a spine stealing fairy that goes away castrating people.

There's that too, I know what you mean by perves who serve no purpose other then to create unnecessary fan mail and poor taste jokes.

A person who is stabbed or slashed but was nothing serious and seems to be fine and even winning is actually paralyzed or poisoned by some substance on the tip of the weapon.

Has there been an anime with a school setting where they haven't done a festival episode?

Like romance anime :/

I really enjoy them, but there always seems to be a love triangle involved somewhere y'know?
Sometimes it's good, but it's just predictable to me most of the time now.

I totally agree with you, I hate when they put these in anime.... like my mind just goes blank when these characters are on screen. Now im no prude and I enjoy fanservice and can perverted at times but these kind of characters just over do it.

Hmm... guess the cliche I would have to say I am getting tired of seeing is when a guy walks in on a underwear clad/towel clad/naked female and all brain function just seems to stop and of course the female promptly hits the guy half way across the room/building. Yeah it adds to the comedy but it gets kinda old. XD
