- Harem Endings. It really bothers me when the protagonist has a lot of girls wanting him and at the end of the very last episode he's ship with nobody. Annoying!
- School setting. Done to death! Next!
- Anything Yaoi and Yuri
- Unnecessary ecchi. (Depends on the anime setting and story)
- Coward protagonist (Am looking at you Shinji from Evangelion!!)

I feel like there aren't enough josei or mature slice of life animes out there. Maybe it's just me. Also animes related to good music. Stuff similar to Honey x Clover, NANA, Sakamichi No Apollon or Nodame Cantabile.

Overly sexualizing female characters
Teenage protagonist
And too much yelling

Too deep of a meaning where I have to put deep thought or have an existential crisis.

Too Sad, I'd be depressed for the day.

^ basically anything anime critics love

Ultra violence

Harems, kind of. - If they don't choose a girl or have a defined ending. I want an ending or the MC to choose

poitical
sexualizing young characters (looking at you hisoka, love of my life, but also god damn it)
making "effeminate men" the butt of a joke (there are lot's of effeminate men but hardly any actual trans women...)
unnecessary fanservice / fanservice characters / pretty much every other problem w/fanservice and sexism
lack of diversity - not enough non-male protagonists or black/brown peeps

industry
bad dubs (i mean i watch subs because of this but i wish there were better dubs)
recaps (episodes and intros oh god especially intros)

artistic
long arcs and poor pacing
uncreative filler episodes (look to ATLA for amazing filler)
bad op/ed is annoying but easy to skip

Another one I've encountered a lot recently:

An MC who is heir to a legacy of super powers, magical skill, what have you, but for some reason his parent/guardian saw fit to raise him in total ignorance of this legacy (or the parent/guardian is also ignorant of it). So, when the MC comes of age, he knows nothing about the threats he was born to face, has no training in facing them, and the parent/guardian who caused this situation is usually long dead. So, the entire first season of the show is a crash course for the poor kid, usually involving ridiculous plot armor just so he doesn't get killed while playing catch-up.

I'm not saying it can't be done well, it just seems to be done an awful lot.

Fanservice -- whether it's panty shots, overly revealing clothes, yaoi, etc. It's one thing if a character happens to be more curvy than average (after all, people like that do exist), but when every character is like that and they all wear next to nothing and/or alternate physics seem to apply... It's especially annoying if it's inserted into an otherwise serious anime--I mean, I avoid ecchi (and certainly stay as far away as I can from hentai), but sometimes stuff pops up in anime that I'd otherwise want to watch. It's been bad enough in a few to make me stop watching, even though I found the rest of the show quite interesting...

Fanservice with underage characters is especially disgusting. Like with Shiro from No Game No Life. She's 11. It's just plain wrong to be sexualizing her. (I love her character, though, and was sad when I no longer felt comfortable watching the anime because of the fanservice.)

when a male character freaks out because a girl touches him. We need more Arata from Trinity Seven.

Extremely virgin-like sad MC's. Where are my clever players at???

Overly large breasts. One could use them to suffocate multiple people.

Child fan-service.... These kids don't have to be innocent, but unless their character is actually using their body to get their way in a scene or it's heavily related to their personality (which it shouldn't be anyway, only extremely rare occasions) then just S T O P.

Repetitive flash backs (My Hero Academia) Horokoshi-Sensei. You wylin' out with this one. I think I've seen the cutscene about Deku remembering how far he has came from far too many times.

Unrealistic relationship circumstances - Incestuous or child and adults.... y-y-yamete

Lazy plot progression - (currently: Convenience Store Boyfriends) these dudes should be slightly more alpha, but the situations they're put in are beyond trivial. Extremely frustrating.

HAREMS... There are far too many of them and they should just have maybe 1 per season, but at least ensure it is good quality? There are far too many harems and I understand why. However, they're so many that it's an OVERKILLED trope.

Music - there have been good additions to the emotion that a scene evokes with the help of music, but some are just horribly executed. I forgot what i watched recently, but it bothered me to no end.

This complaint, coupled with Kiriha in your profile picture, made me smile. Kazuya had good reason for freaking out, considering how she "touched" him.

Huh. I'll have to rewatch it. I thought it was a refreshing take because while they occasionally joked about their codependency ('Brother rejected me.") it went out of its way to avert that trope, to the point where Brother was actively trying not to take pictures of her (while trying to do so with others.)
