    Overuse of the UN in military anime. Decisions made there can take months to reach and then cavalry can come in 36 to 48 hrs.

    I don't like romance between two or more characters for the sake of having a romance in the series. If I came to watch the show because I wanted a fast paced action, I probably did not want to come see a romance between two of the main characters.

    The cliff hangers that some anime's end on.

    I'll agree that fan service can sometimes be overused - Ecchi definitely not being my cup of tea but if I can specifically state the #1 thing I absolutely dislike strongly about anime, its when writers combine cuteness + a gore fest setting into one... really puts me down(mood)and can only imagine how exactly can they come up with stuff like that? Not to mention when there is a touching story behind the character only for them to get brutally murdered in a few episodes ahead :/

    So I'm the only one who despises lolis? Sure I can agree with hating too much ecchi and wimpy characters but nothing pisses me of more than a loli in an anime(Excluding that Japanese chick's voice whose last name I can never remember, Rie SomethingOrRather. Her voice needs to be silenced).

    I can't stand them. They're are usually bitchy, and/or a violent tsundere which is the worst "dere" as far as I can figure out from the dere types I know. Not to mention they are sometimes used as romantic interests. Why? they look like they're 10. Not to mention in quite a few harem anime she is chosen over the other girls...No one in their right mind would pick a violent, bitchy, short-ass brat over the overly caring childhood friend or the slightly more forward but just as caring "Senpai". Hell you would even pick the big-breasted blonde ditz over the child...They wouldn't try and smack you over the face when you tried to show 'em some love, plus you'd be able to strike up a conversation without them yelling and getting violent.

    Plus people try and say that they're cute? uh-uh, there are all of two lolis I have found cute. Rin from Usagi Drop and Kuu from Sekirei, That's it. It helps to make a character cute when their voice doesn't make your ears bleed and they aren't sexualised. Some lolis can be likeable without being cute too. Just look at Pino from Ergo Proxy. She's awesome.

    Second on the list is incest... Actually there is something worse..."Incest." you know the kind when the MC struggles to hold back plugging his sister, because he has the hots for her but he knows she's his sister but then he gives up and goes to confess or something, then it magically comes up that they aren't blood related... If you're going to have incest at least have the balls to go all the way. Don't pussy foot around. I won't like the anime more but I can at least respect someone for going all the way.

    I've also decided I don't like how overdone Magical Girl anime is done now. I liked Madoka Magica, but I don't like any other magical girl anime (even if Sailor Moon and Card Captors came before it). Another thing I am starting to notice now, is how every bloody anime has a high school boy or girl as the main character. Come up with something a little more original!!

    The stigma that comes with it. I can't tell you how many dates i've lost because they find out i like anime.

    Why bother.
    Their blandness make perfect self-inserts, which is what Otaku want.

    What I hate kinda changes depending on the anime I'm watching. I watch a lot of different types of anime, and have things I like and dislike about each. But the thing I think annoys me the most is when an otherwise interesting show gets bogged down by tropes from other genres. Like a mystery or adventure anime that becomes an ecchie or harem anime (which I can actually enjoy when I'm in the mood for them, but otherwise not) partway in.

    Honestly for me it's finding a good anime ...don't get me wrong there's tons of great to good to enjoyable anime but there's a ton of stuff that either isn't my thing or just sucks but it's hard to seperate them .

    Also the animes where they have a fun or great idea and water it down like SAO where it's a fun idea but they take away most the threat and over power the main character for no reason .

    I agree with most of these complaints, especially the unfinished or bad endings. Once again, I haven't watch a ton of anime just yet but my least favorite thing aside from endings is the smoking. Seems like 90% of all the anime I've watched so far has one or more characters smoking multiple times an episode and it personally drives me a little nuts cause I quit about 8 months ago. I used to smoke 2 packs a day and seeing it that often just makes me want a cigarette soo bad, haha.

    Overuse of fan service & more importantly, finding one that I like.

    You know what's starting to get under my skin a bit?
    The opening theme songs mostly being some kind of J-pop song I have no interest in. I know lot's of people like that sort of thing but I could never get it.

    Funny thing; I can self-insert a character into almost anything I watch.

    I love anime but I do hate a couple things without even thinking. Would be ...

    -Unfinished stories of good shows or even where the show just falls off ( deadman wonderland had so much potential) .

    -I don't mind this as much but there's so many just trash shows (I mean shows that get rated 2/10 by majority and even the best rating is like a 4.5/10) ...over saturation just makes it hard to find a new show is all.(minor annoyance I guess ) .

    -I hate when a good show doesn't get a dub or finished in dub ( D.Grayman !!) .

    -While I get why it happens I hate how characters just get over powered wayyy before the end and then continue to reach ridiculous new levels .. EX: Naruto Shippuden( shinobi war stands out for op) , Bleach( no one does bankia at the start its like 5 captains and byakuya even is stunned by ichigo...later everyone has some extra bs and that lol) ...A show the AVOIDED the OP storyline is Soul Eater , they progressed and get reasonably stronger but they didn't go from not being able to fight to being able to 1 punch the earth lol they just became capable of fighting their opponents .

    -I hate how there's shows that last forever but I also love that lol I just wish some other shows got better treatment .

    Gratuitous ecchi, and when bad shows get more seasons than more a deserving series.

    Waiting months/years for a dub to continue. I've only had to do this with Fairy Tail and its just horrible. Especially since they ended the season in the middle of a tournament arc and now we'll be waiting Lord knows how long to continue the arc.

    I also hate when a show goes in a completely different direction or greatly reduces a characters role in season 2, like SAO where it was all about Kirito and Asuna and then season 2 Asuna's barely around.

    I love fanservice so I'll never understand people complaining about it.

    I would have to say when the anime characters go on about how their friendship can overpower anyhting.

    Yeah, it's a nice message and all but it's just so... silly.

    I guess I would have to agree, some Anime tend to have a bad ending.
    "We shall meet again and when we do, I will kill you" The end...
    No new season either:(. REALLY? that sucks. or better yet... the most favourable character dies or has a personality change that ruins the character completely. *Groans:mad:* but this is why 'Fan-Fiction' was created:).
