You ever notice something in anime and realize its been done in quite a number of times? Like the basic premise of harem anime in which a male lives with many hot wimminz? Well, its time to dig up all the cool little anime clichés we can think of and post some examples of animes in which they are found

Here's an illustration of a cliché found in many fighting animes: Special moves that require excessive posturing and take forever to charge:



Several episodes later...



You don't have to use pix, just list some cool examples of cliches.

Stalling a fight by showing flashbacks, simply talking about useless matters, taking 5 min to explain something that can be explained in one sentence (for example in naruto when they constantly switched between lee vs kimimaro and Gai so that he couldn't say that lee starts to rampage because he is a natural drunken master).
Or we got the dbz version were you scream for episodes >.>

the main villian doing something compasionate and letting the main protagonist win because of that

The tragedy of a character , like death of family members .
Ninjas are everywhere . The I`m-avenging-you ! crap .
There`s always a hot bishie in all anime .
There`s always a good guy and a bad guy and is stated directly .
The main character wanting to gain power .

What I don't like in anime:

Girl who everyone is in love with

Guy who everyone is in love with

the utter lack of plot in chipper anime where sunshine and bunnies reign supreme

happy bouncy anime where if you try you'll succeed

the more talented people are beaten by the main character...(maybe it's just me)

magical girl transformations (not all of those animes are bad...but I wish they'd cut out the transforming part)

anime where fighting takes up most of the episode

Or vice-versa. "I will let you live if you become a good person!" "Oh, yeah no problem lol! *shivs in the back* lololool n00b!" That happens a lot too, but the villain doesn't win for very long.

1) anime bullies...that always seems to come in threes...whether they be girls or guys..the leader has always has this irritating smug and loud laugh...(the girl bullies seems to be scarier than the guy bullies)
2) guys that dress up as girls...and suprisingly the girls find this sexy and cool and not get weirded out
3) fevers/ high temps from colds seems to be a matter of life and death situation
4) most anime heroines seems to be nice, docile and shy and completely without character
5) love confessions on the school rooftops...( Oh and the girls seems to be the ones to do the confessings..what's with this????)
6) only the girls give the guys chocolates on Valentines day

something that has always got on my nerves is how the main character is weak in the beginning and fights a villain, loses and the villain never kills the main and let the main get stronger and kill the him/her.......... this scenario is use all the time and is ticking me off.
