-Strangely enough, when I was younger I thought ultra-violence was hilarious. I even had dreams of an anime movie in which a character stubs his toe and his leg rockets off backwards with blood propelling it.
-Sophisticated villains and well thought out protagonists/"protagonists". (By "protagonists" I mean characters such as Light Yagami
, freaking douche abusing Misa
-Hilariously bad dubs.
-Matches made in heaven and cute/tragic couples. OTPs. (When I used to read the Case Closed/Detective Conan manga and watch the anime I always liked how Rachel never gave up on Jimmy, and Jimmy always being nearby but unbeknownst to Rachel, like I said, cute/tragic couples)
-Adaptations which add more depth to characters.
-Music. ("This is a Fight to Change the World", "Der Traum Deines Lebens", etc.)
-(Impersonates Film Brain) Symbolism!
-The amazing faces some characters pull.
-Over exposure of cleavage and tight (e.g. leather) outfits.
-People trying to pull Shinjis.
-I always find male characters who gawk over women embarrassing to watch.
-Homosexual characters being portrayed awfully.
I'll add more as I think of them. ... (I think I'm stealing what everyone else has to say.)
