Transfer students. MC meets another kid character, and the next episode, they're introduced as a new transfer student.

PLEEZ NO MOAR.

Also, I really dislike cute animal sidekicks who only make random squeaky sounds, yet necessitate having a voice actor.

The cliche that drives me crazy is the tsundere, not all tsundere girls, i mean when the MC meets a bunch of girls and one of them is a bi*ch aka tsundere... At this point my brain is yelling THE MC IS GOING TO FALL IN LOVE WITH HER!!!! and 3 chapters later he does.

And i actually scream YOU D*MN Author you better make the MC a womanizer!!!
BUT please NO BOATS,NO MATTER HOW NICE THEY ARE!!!!

P.S.
i kind of got off the point but it flips me out just writing about it.
BTW
i know there wasnt a tsundere in that BOAT.

Mascot characters, harems, boy meets girl, girl meets boy, fanservice in anime that aren't comedy, saucer-sized eyeballs.

I'd say my biggest pet peeve is in a romance show or a show with romance elements, there seems to be some rule that the main character has to be completely oblivious to the fact that one or more of the other characters has feelings for him. Alice couldn't make her feelings more clear for Bob(always acting embarrassed around him, trying to get some time alone with him, etc.) but Bob just can't put two and two together. I'd say the one character that best represents this is Ichika from Infinite Stratos. He has one of the most zealous harems of all time, yet can't seem to figure out they all have the hots for him.

screaming and standing in a pose to power up, You would assume that they would have access to their power all the time. Why do they need to scream and flex in order to use their full strength? Is it buried somewhere where only screams can reach?



I think it's similar to when people make insane grunting noises while working out. the more the weight, the louder the grunt? The more the power up, the louder the scream!

Walk/minute/second in rain = sneeze/cough = fever = exhaustion = pass out = deadly fever/pneumonia/coma/most deadly illnesses = dramatic plot twist/cliffhanger for the next episode

I would also love to see a main-ish character get killed and the weather stay sunny and nice. Just once.

I also hate how some characters are there just to be an idiot and give comedy, and everyone except their best friend, usually the MC, hates on said character, and the MC isn't too nice anyway. I feel sorry for comedic character...

And I hate how there's always one or two characters who get captured/stolen/attacked and are about to be killed/sacrificed/tortured/used as bait, then they get saved. It's usually fine, but when it starts happening every few episodes or every arc and/or battle, they start being rescued by the most ridiculous things like the unexpected yet perfectly timed arrival of some OP who hasn't been seen for the last million episodes. Or they get saved by friendship or emotions. You can only escape death so many times. Eventually they gotta be killed off!

in shonen,
the mc ALWAYS gets caught when peeping naked girl having a bath in the river.

mc's clothes always get torn off after fighting. and the next day those bruises under his ripped-shirt just magically disappear.
im talking about [yuyu hakusho, dragon ball, one piece ,etc...]

MC late on the first day of school.

heroine sees a cute guy sleeping on the school's rooftop, and the rest is predictable....

also this typical Strong and scary fierce looking guy holding a cute small loli on his arms.

and those flashback shits when the mc loses the fight/battle in a certain event [including flashback about childhood friend ]

Main character oblivious to the one who admires them. Though this really isn't exclusive to anime. Just annoys me that it's as clear as the blue sky yet they can't see it till a heart is broken.

The other is explaining how they're going to kill/attack, giving away their weakness/fighting strength. No one really does this otherwise they'd be killed /defeated before they finished explaining. Though I have to admit it does have it's good use.

Cat ears
Bunny ears
Characters who look about 8 and have massive tits
Characters who blush and sob at being leered at yet have everything out on show
Tsundere characters who can be spotted instantly because they have 'fierce' looking eyebrows
The pathetic characters who sound like they've overdosed on helium who fall over themselves and suck up to the MC like a needy peasant
Massive tits in general that look disgusting and flop all about the place
Gratuitous panty shots
The 'mysterious' girl who always shows up in the MCs life and demands something retarded from them, but everyone loves because she's cool with her long dark hair and bangs
The 'was just an average high school student' summary line seemingly used in 90% of anime
'X Acadamy' anime that features one dumb arse MC and a harem of fucked up archetypes that rotate around the MC like flies around poop
Moeblob in all its hideous guises
When they draw little fangs on the characters to try and look cute
The pointlessly angsty guy who everyone draws YAOI SLASH about
The way that the vast majority of plots revolve completely around the MC, even if he/she are a massive waste of breath

I could go on.

Anime is full of such shit these days, it makes a good show (that avoids all of these tropes) all the better.

Most of mine have been said here already, but I'll list a few. ^^

Lolis that are way too old to be lolis: Okay, if you want a loli character, at least make it believable!

Immature bishojou female teacher: HOW DID SHE GET THIS JOB??

Stereotypical harem: 'Nuff said

That childhood friend: The first girl in the harem, she probably loves him the most BUT- she has no chance.

Straight girls fondling each others chest: Who the hell does that

The male lead being the super-popular guy: I'M TALKING TO YOU SHOJOU GENRE!!
