1. The inability of characters to fight back if they've been slapped or otherwise punched. I mean, I'm a peaceful person, but if someone hits me, even if it's a "snap out of it" kind of hit, I'm gonna hit back!

2. The mother who dies in childbirth. I mean, come on! Either Japan's prenatal/postnatal care system is shot to pieces, or the doctor is delivering these babies with rusty forceps.

3. The father and/or mother who is conveniently on a business trip in America. Yeah...that's a good way to get him/her out of the house for a couple months to leave our main character unsupervised and untethered.

4. The train/fight/train/fight cycle. This annoys me the most. Main character is fighting a bad guy. He loses in the worst way. He goes off on a training quest with some master, learning a super-secret, hidden technique to make him stronger, he goes back, fights said bad guy, wins, then relaxes for an episode or two until it starts all over again. Oh, and you better not ask for any help whatsover from your unbruised friends gawking at you from the sidelines because this is a "fair fight" and honor must be secured. Oy.

here is something that isn't that.

but the only reason the vid above works is that the scenery is moving and the character isn't simple an image but an animation.

it is really difficult to have something so stationary and make it work.

Ah, "Paranoia Agent"...how I've missed you so. The most underrated mind-freak anime of the last 10 or so years. Incidently, the song is "Yume no Shima Shinen Kouen (Dream Island Obsessional Park)" and it makes for prodigious driving music....don't ask me how I know.

So many, lol several listed I laughed at like parents in America but I also know there is cliché that is done pretty much everywhere not just anime

The 3 friend trio where 1 girl 2 boys, one boy is main character of entire series and has crush on female of group and the other guy is there for comedy relief or serious relief depending on show and main female character likes main male character but won't admit it or realize it until very end

A flashback of a flashback about a flashback (i.e. Naruto).

Also flashbacks about stuff that just happened two seconds ago.

Dodging - It is easier to take the full brunt of an attack than to dodge it.

Every fight formula ever:
Enemy gets introduced, Main character struggles to keep up and gets his ass handed to him, Main character unleashes new power, Enemy is defeated
