Battles where they feel the need to explain what move they are about to do or yell it as they do it.

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.

It's funny you say that, because I laughed at him. Sure, he was a pointless character, but that entire anime is overall pointless when you really look at it. In that kind of scenario, I think he fit the bill. Now, if it was a more serious anime with a real plot and they just tossed in a pointless character like that, I'd probably be annoyed.

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.

Hah, yeah I agree actually. There's a series of anime shorts on here and in one episode the guy goes to unleash his ultimate attack and half way through the name of it his opponent just clobbers him which prompts another character to yell out, "He didn't let him finish his attack!"

Cheesy, but I laughed.

- Creating false drama by introducing (supposed) romantic interests for a character when there's obviously no chance that they won't end up with the already-established romantic interest. If it actually does create drama and makes the story more interesting, fine, but so many times it's just a time-killer or filler or whatever. Seems pointless when it's obviously not going anywhere.
- Female characters falling and spraining their ankle, or catching a cold after minimal time spent out in the rain.
- Goofball characters never being the one to get the girl/guy. Sense of humor's attractive, damn it.
- Ridiculously overprotective siblings. Usually brothers, but sometimes sisters.
- Female characters being so ridiculously insecure. "I had one hair out of place! I'm sure he hates me now!"
- Fighter type characters coming up with some incredible power just in the nick of time, then there's some bogus reason why they can't use it later, even though their friends and/or their cause are/is being severely harmed.
- The good or bad guys letting the other side have some major victory that they could've stolen away, but they didn't because (insert nonsensical reason here).

Prophecy's
The main villain being a childhood friend/a relative of the MC
Female fighting characters who's purpose is solely to show off how heroic the MC is as he saves them
Unexplained power ups(i don't like it when they come out of no where but if there explained i don't mind as much)
Anime's that create a power system that is used only to break it to make a main character look awesome(looking at you hunterxhunter)
Fake drama
Showing a wound at end to create a cliffhanger then on next episode attack is parried/blocked/hits arm even though end of last ep shows blood going everywhere
Overly perverted chars with no plot purpose
Overly Emo MC's

Me, I honestly love the SHAFT head tilt in particular; it's like a signature. Can't say I take much notice of head tilts elsewhere.

Unnecessary amount of crying that drags on for far to long. Worst case I've seen is Anohana's last episode, sure it's sad but I don't want to see nothing happen other than crying for 10 minutes.

How about this.

When people fight each other with swords and one guy get sliced, the other dude doesn't even look behind him, puts his sword away, and the dude who got sliced all of a sudden falls over.

Personally I would love to see a guy just get sliced in half instantly without that 30 seconds of moans and groans then falling dead.

The matsuri scene---everyone, whip out the kimonos!
The student transfer---it makes me wish I had cute student transfers coming into my school every month. Because that seems to be the average rate in an anime -_-''''

I've never really been a fan of that in anime. I get the style and what they're going for - but it's still lazy, in my opinion. I'd rather just see the fight fully animated instead of it reduced to black screens and stills whenever they're fighting.

I suppose it depends on how you define, "goofball", but Vash the Stampede and Captain Tylor could be cited as exceptions.

While one could argue Vash isn't really a goofball character, I think the jury is still out on Tylor. I have only seen the OVA and the first couple of episodes of the series, so I don't have enough info to know if he is secretly that good, or just darn lucky.

The end of episode 9 of Rosario + Vampire comes to mind. How do we go from Tsukune being stabbed through with a plant and Moka looking as if she is going to transform with the rosario still in place to the beginning of the next episode?

Typical harems or love triangles. They always have the obvious good choice and the annoying one the guy usually picks. Other one is the pedo drawn anime with super up close crotch shots ***stares at pedo-red operation***

If they're to place any incest into the plotline and then pulling out that quote "not related by blood" in an attempt to alleviate the theme; what would even be the point of even placing it in there? Otherwise it's time to grow some balls and not worry about opinions of mass media and follow the damn story or just don't use that theme at all.
