There are a lot but right now, the main character falling and ending up with a jerk instead of the nice girl/guy who likes them back. I mean, I know that it also kind of happens in real life but it's annoying.

I suppose I get bored or frustrated with most fanservice, teen angst stuff, repetitive plot devices (meaning the anime basically is doing the same thing over and over again just in a different setting), drawn out animes that stopped leading anywhere= filler, and complicated improbable conspiracy plots always cropping up. About the last, I don't mind it if it is part of the problem from the beginning, but there are many times where an anime starts off as with one focus problem, only to half way through suddenly have a government conspiracy issue take center stage, and the original problem/quest (whatever) becomes more of an afterthought.

Then there are just genres that I'm just not into, some of which because I find them boring, like cute girls doing cute things, with the odd exception.

MC that is too OP. I don't dislike very powerful characters, but sometimes it it too overdone to the point where they basically have an unreasonable god mode on and it really takes away from the experience.

Also while not disliking harems, I very much dislike when the harem is a thing simply because MC is the MC and everyone falls for them because they are the MC, without any even half-assed reason.

I'm tired of misunderstandings and bullying in school romance anime. If it's going to be done, the issues should be solved fairly quickly and the bullying should at least be stopped by the character that is being bullied, not the other character in the couple. i want more Kare Kano level writing and directing, not last year's Orange.

I'm tired of teenage main characters (or younger). I want more shows like Gangsta, Welcome to the NHK, and Samurai Flamenco. The trope of awkward teenagers is just getting tiresome.

Repetitive flashbacks. I mean, I can understand why the same flashback might be used more than once, but when we have to see it every single episode (or more, in some cases), it does get a little grating. I would also like to say the overuse of flashbacks, but I feel like that's a little more situational.

That annoying little gasp that all anime characters make but no-one in real life does.

Oh yes, and 17 year old boys who are terrified of seeing any bit of naked flesh on a girl. Really... REALLY? As a 17 year old boy I couldn't wait to see my girlfriend naked.

What I consider "whacky" art styles and animation.

I'm looking at you Trigger among others.

I prefer my anime to look like anime, not an art project.

90% of guys in anime seem to fall into two camps: The ones you've described and the perverts who either fail to follow through or are prevented from doing so (usually by violent reprisal).

That said, I wonder if they ones you described as as unrealistic as you might think, given Japan's falling birthrate and percentage of people seemingly eschewing relationships or deferring them until later in life.

I have addressed this in another thread so I will not go on another soapbox... however Fanservice and Ecchi are no longer even relevant. Now it just gets spammed so much in every show I am not sure the authors even know what the purpose of Ecchi or Fan service were intended for.

Majority School setting. It's getting over used and would like to see other place settings.
