Haha, there's so many anime-cliches that get under my skin I'd get a headache just trying to count them all. Many of them people have already said, but I can think of at least ten more. I've stopped nitpicking my entertainment at this point, just go with the cliche flow.

And I thought the OP said flip out, he means delighted... But enough about that back on topic.

The most overused cliches in anime that really ticked me off is the Boke Tsukkomi routine AKA Manzai routine. This joke has been overused and abused by many shounen anime that every time I see one it gradually loses its humor. One of the Big 3 abused this joke routine so much that at the back of my mind I was wondering that the author of that mangaseries must have at his wits' end that he couldn't come up something new and refreshing.

I think the most angering thing would be the little blonde girl who is filthy rich and is brilliant, but has like an annoying attitude and expresses her like for a certain character with meanness. When ever i see that I just want to walk inside the show and slap her. Also I'm not sure if this is a cliche but I've seen it multiple times, when they play characters as part of a narration type deal, I'm like are u guys serious doing that, making it like these people in the anime are live actors seriously.... And that incest deal, like wtf there are so many people out there but the person u fall I love with is ur own blood and then they act all bashful. Well that about it.

Romantic tension between two character. Female somehow always falls into male's arms. Stare into each other's eyes. Fall in love. Overdone to me

The girls in anime that are perfect, popular, etc... It's the dominate pattern for romance comedy or whatever.

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


This is a rebuttal to this question, OF CORSE NOT, IN Japanese schools they have festivals to commemorate the school's founding or they have a sports festival or an Arts festival and the list goes on, do some research why don't ya, Or it it too hard for your brain to move your fingers to do it??

Asking silly questions.

The things that really annoy me are the , " if the character sees the girl's panties, automatically he's a pervert, or that nose bleed indicates thinking perverted things, or the male accidentaly sees girl naked and he's automatically beaned with all manner of objects and labelled a pervert. or even when the girl/woman walks in on the guy and he's naked, he's the one who gets slapped.

haven't they heard of knocking, or if they are told not to come in, the girls do and SLAP the naked male. oh sheesh.

I kind of thought Charger Girl Ju-den Chan was a breath of fresh air because in that one the girls ended up being the perverts and the dude would thwack them with a baseball bat when they stepped over the line. Granted, that anime was completely bizarre to begin with, but hey, I'll take what I can get.

While the nose-bleed thing is a standard anime trope that is an indication of sexual arousal, to the point that when a character has a nosebleed for some other reason, the fact that it's not sex-related and must be awkwardly excused is usually played for laughs, it's one I've grown accustomed to and am okay with. It's kind of like the exaggerated lump that arises from being hit on the head (which as a visual indicator of someone having been hit hard I like a great deal less than the the silly nose-bleed means sexual arousal thing).

But everything else, yes, I hate all those too. It's really unpleasant how abused guys get and it's supposed to be okay or even outright funny. Pervy girls are an amusing change of pace, but they rarely get beat on for it.

Also annoying--the "accidental kiss." Um, right if you do manage to trip down the stairs and fall on someone such that your mouths smack together, that hurts! It's certainly no kiss!

Also, I don't know if it's a culture thing or an anime thing or what, but honestly, so much of what's played up as "pervy" seems like pretty normal unobjectionable stuff to me.

When 2 characters who are in the middle of a fight just stand around and talk for a good portion of it. I mean, really...

Villains who look so obviously evil. Like the huge eyebrows, the tiny eyes... It's not just anime, but still. =w=

Japanese high school. Nuf said.
I enjoy it sometimes, but really, it's so overdone it's ridiculous. And we even have an anime called Chuu ni Byou for it.

Hm... That gives me an idea.

The brother who falls in love with his sister or vise versa, but it's OK! Because the sister/brother isn't related to him/her at all! She's either adopted or his step-sister/brother.
