Which of these anime cliches irks you the most?

In fights where two attacks push against each other and the strongest one wins.
The hero and villain are finally coming to blows, and they each unleash their ultimate attacks. The beams, punches, slashes, or other attacks, repel each other.

Sex obsessed female character
For when authors have given up even pretending to have a reason for fanservice

Flat tsundere characters
Grumpy girl with barely any character, but compensate by having an unbearable attitude. Sometimes, justified by saying, "She grew up lonely," or "She's really just shy."

Accidental Sexual Assault
Also, known as "All anime male leads should walk with their hands in their pockets" Accidentally sexually traumatizing your classmates is not good comedy. All in all, it seems more like an excuse to show a groping scene or nude/undresssed female embarrassed rather than a legit attempt at comedy.

Wimpy male lead who just can't decide
He doesn't want disappoint them, "loves them all," doesn't want to lose any of their friendships, yet is willing to lead them all on.

High school setting

The sex obsessed female character followed closely by the protagonist who just can't decide.

I hate all of these things. When people bring up how every show is the same they have a point when they point these out. It also makes it hard to find something interesting without being disappointed.

Probably the tsundere option. I know a lot of people like Toradora! but I could barely even get through three episodes. I guess I just don't like tsunderes. ;-;

The first time I watched it, I replayed part where the tsundere got hit by the basketball so many times.

Sex obsessed female character then the person who can't decide. I mean boobs are good and all but having MEGA breasts with only a thin layer to protect them is just silly.

I'm not sure why you mentioned "High school setting" but didn't include it in the poll but that would be my choice. The annoying male lead comes close in second place.

I don't mind useless fan service and push attacks.
And I really like the tsundere type both in real life and in anime, though it's not an excuse for having a boring personality.

I've often wondered why the beams don't just pass through each other. It strains belief.

Wimpy male. Yuuki is literally the only character I've ever considered dropping a show for. Literally the only one.

The two attacks blocking each other is not the effect I would expect either, I would see more something like the two guys being hit at the time, or at least some kind of ricochet.
