For me It doesn't have to be original, but a little bit different would be nice. It gets boring when it's always the same predictable stuff.

Tropes are not bad. Genres are not bad. Anime has many well-treaded genres and character archetypes, and this is one of the things that make anime what it is. Anime fans like this repetition, and if they didn't they wouldn't be anime fans (or they won't remain so for very long).

That doesn't mean originality is bad or that anime fans dislike it. The reason anime fans seem hard to please is that if you actually like anime too much, you're not an anime fan anymore, you're a weeb.
