I can't say for sure whether it's strictly an anime trope as it is a romance trope, but here's mine:

"The rival / childhood friend" - Some anonymous character comes out of nowhere to try and capture the protagonist's heart, but will ultimately fail when all's said and done.

For whatever reason, this trope pops up in lot of the anime I watch. And it's done nearly the same every time. Lazy.

Falls in love with a sibling.

Oops turns out this sibling is somehow completely unrelated to you by blood.

A lot of anime take place in a world where there are no parents.

And overly distracting fan service. A little is fine but when the girls tits are the size of watermelons and they're just going nuts with the jiggling, it's eye rolling stupid.

When some dude accidentally walks in on a girl changing, and even though its obviously just a mistake she still punches him in the face anyway. A bunch of tsundere tropes in general tend to get on my nerve since the girl usually gets to act like a total unlikable asshole with zero repercussions, and somehow we're supposed to sympathize with her anyway.

Friend, you need to give people time to respond. It's a good question and deserves some thought. :)

For me it is a male MC who has no balls and is so wishy-washy people walk all over him, but girls still fall over themself for him. I know it's a rom-comedy, but give me a break.

Easy, the airhead lead MCs in harem anime. This cliche needs to die already.

This!

This is right up there with the mystery novel/movie trope of "who the hell is that" when the killer is revealed (it was the kid's uncle's father's dentist's cousin thrice removed ...by marriage). Some tropes just beat you down with a friggin doh!-hammer.

Have you seen Trinity Seven? MC is both a total pervert but still keeps from veering into pure sleaze levels like that twit from Heaven's Lost Property. Its actually a give and take between him and some of the girls as he routinely gets outmaneuvered. A couple times its HIM getting sent running in embarrassment when someone refuses to "follow the script" or outplays him. He also has a separate goal he prioritizes over just lecherous pursuits :It makes him far more "human" than the average generic harem dunce. The girls are also competent and (mostly) fleshed out as well... so its definitely several cuts above your normal harem trash fair.


Anyone, my cardinal sin is the "JUST BELIEVE IN YOURSELF/NAKAMA POWER!" asspull finishers. I've pretty much never seen this pulled off as more believable than iron-clad plot armor. Tactics? Training? Skill? Talent? Nah, just believe in yourself, your heart is true, +INFINITY POWAH!" If the fight has been incredibly close and the hero needs that 1% something extra to let the die fall in his/her favor? Maybe. See someone barely alive and have had their ass kicked from here to Kingdom Come 5 times over stand up, spout about friendship, and win the day? Hell no. Even when done right it needs to be done -sparingly- These are little more than luck wins. If the hero was capable of winning at any time, why did he need to ramble about "Friendship is Magic!/I can do eeeet!" first to end the fight? The power/skill was in them all along, and the fight before this should have reflected it.

The rival, especially when you look at Gary Oak, Paul, and Alain from the Pokemon anime series.

Also, the incompetent protagonist, in this case Ash Ketchum, also from Pokemon.

When the main character trips with a female, they fall and he somehow manages grabs her boobs, but it just doesn't end there, he has to squish and say "oh what is this, it's so soft", even Parasyte isn't safe from this.

Nosebleeds, it's just so ridiculous that a man would have a nosebleed every time he has an arousing encounter with a female.
