As an old jaded anime fan, occasionally I'll see something in an anime that gets overused and it really starts to grind my gears. There are certain types of characters or ideas that get overused because they appeal to the fantasies of otaku and make them spend money on figures and other crap because they want a certain characters face on everything they can get.

The one that bugs me right now is incest fantasies, usually a case of "brother/sister but not blood related so we can be in love with each other without it being against all laws of life", it seems to be in so many shows and it's shows that even have a good plot and great animation so I want to watch it but I have to sit through some incest nonsense just to watch the damn thing.

The thing that bugs me the most is there are always the same kinds of characters. For example the woman who always beats the shit out of a guy she either likes or doesn't. For example Sakura from Naruto always beats Naruto. Another example is Nami from One Piece who always beats the shit out of the male characters like Luffy or Brook.

Moe, so tired of it. We have enough cute shit to last the next 10 years. Also incomplete adaptations, really hard to find something to invest in/satisfying when it's incomplete.

flash back and recap episodes which just shows parts so far in the series if we wanted to remind ourselves what has been happening that's what the internet, episode repeats on tv and dvds are for

Bad male MCs. Either they're super OP and badass with no real reason as to why they are that way other than "because they're the MC," or they're spineless, whiny and useless yet everyone still loves them and rallies around them "because they're the MC."

Female characters that exist purely to fall in love with or flatter the MC, regardless of how bad they are. Love and romance can be great, but can we please stop having every female character fall in love with the MC because they are the MC? If you're going to have a love angle, fine, but at least have a reason for it and give the female characters some agency and development of their own.

Not sure if typo or not. But you're not wrong.

Generic female characters... yandere, tsundere, kuudere, dandere, pretty much any kind of dere. Just staaaaaap.
Generic female faces.
Moe. Maids.
A really good serious show and then they insert stupid tropes
Bouncing boobs and other stupid fanservice
High school shit
...

Unoriginal plot nonsense- like "s/he's moving to a new town to go to a new high school because of parents' job" or "mother died in a tragic accident", "father died in a tragic accident"; "best friend dies in a tragic accident"; "_______City needs the talents of three teenage girls with superpowers after tragic accident/gangster fighting/alien invasion", "clueless guy with awesome powers goes to all-female academy where all the girls have powers and he's the only guy with them and his are better and all the girls are -deres" --------> How many anime does this describe? Like 40?!?
...that kind of stuff.

~False deaths/sacrifices. Especially when they try to force the emotions when you know it's not going to happen (*coughFairyTailcough*)
~Fanservice - Gigantic boobs, panty shots, etc.

EDIT: Oops, 'bored', I removed some of the complaints I feel more frustrated with than bored.

The little blond one who's super cheerful and energetic! (a.k.a. ripoffs of Momiji from Fruits Basket and Honey from Ouran). There's one in just about every bishounen show, and like... no.

Also, if you don't like those things, don't watch them. Simple. I haven't seen any of the things you're talking about because I just don't watch those shows. I watch less than three shows a season, usually bishounen-centric ones that involve either royalty or singing and dancing. That's my taste. I don't force myself to watch other things just because they're there.
