    I liked Chibi Vampire, which I saw back in High School. Also in the Perceived Pervert... Some of those were actual perverts like Miroku. I never even saw in all those clips anything relating to Rito Yuki from To Love-Ru. He's an innocent guy trying to confess to one girl, but winds up with practically a harem, having moments where he trips and winds up in all sorts of awkward situations with the ladies. Also the main kid from like Kanokon. The one you included where the guy got half his head cleaved off by a spiked club was gory overkill. Also another good cliché... The Arrogant Powerhouse!!!! Examples being Laxus from Fairy Tail, Bakugo from My Hero Academia. Basically the characters that are proclaimed to be the best of the best either by themselves or others to the point where they are as arrogant and vicious as the villains they fight. Frieza was also an example considering his family, his father who named Frieza the successor, Cooler who would actually train throughout his life, and the fact that in Super was the first time Frieza ever trained in his life, but as soon as he gained his golden form he thought himself invincible before getting full control of it.

    This is an old video and IDK if it's been said, but not all filler is bad. If it's done well, it can be enjoyable and memorable. The G8 arc in One Piece is one such arc, giving an appropriate (and hilarious) break between serious arcs to give the audience breathing room. Another is Piccolo and Goku learning to drive cars in DBZ, what's the worst that could happen? :D
    But, filler hell in Naruto and some of the Bleach arcs leave a bad taste in my mouth, SO the qualifier is that it has to be done WELL. We can't escape filler as a whole, but hopefully we can at least have more that's done well; to give the audience a break, for character building, or even just "let's see the characters do something silly for a day in their normally serious lives".

    You know the cliche that bothers me the most?

    The girls aren't wearing anything under their school uniform except for panties!
    It isn't that hard
    Buy some shorts to wear under for once

    Yes i agree with the #1 be persevered perverts but Miroku was in the clips for it and he is a pervert grabbing women's butts and asking to have sex with almost ever female in the show.

    To be fair, in Soul Eater, the incident with Blair sounded more like Maka chastising Soul about bursting in like a dumbass... and with Kid, he brought up the boob-size difference between Liz and Patty. I think Liz is a bit self-conscious about being smaller than her lil' sis

    I happen to disagree with her on the Honorable Mentions. Anime is not real, it does not adhere to reality in all aspects. Leave the Gravity defying tits out of it goddamn.
    Also I get the feeling that she agrees with the UN on their whole loli-banning aspects. Because oh noes ...Drawings deserve human rights despite being ya know... fictional

    I hate cliche, when they run the picture over and over, because they could have just show it. For example, In berserk, When Guts is killing 100 men in the forest, they use it so many times.

    I wanna see an anime with the number one cliche turned on it's head: Imagine the situation happens and the girl's friend is the one who freaks out, but the girl who the guy falls onto on accident defends him while the friend gets her hand slapped if she tries to 'avenge her friend'.

    I saw an anime where the guy was called a pervert only to have his best friend reveal that he was actually his boyfriend.
    " I can guarantee he wasn't peeking on you."
    " Cause one you are taking a shower in HIS dorm room."
    " Plus secondly he isn't interested in anything you got over there."
    " Because he is my boyfriend not a pervert. Yeah that's right he is gay."
    " So shut you stupid mouth and get out of my boy toys dorm."
    She actually came into the dorm and started cooking a meal from his food.
    Got in his bath tub and used his bath products without wondering who does this stuff belong to.
    But it turned out she lived right night door and he forgot to lock his door when he left to send out a package at the post office.
    He basically tells her to go home and leave him alone.
    He pretty much tells her to fuck off.

    Villain monologuing and convenient timed power ups are cliche in everything . Not just in anime.
    But the long reveal is actually cool if done right.

    listen the nose bleed is nasesery because the nose bleed is a replacement for boner and unless you don't want to see any character that see hot girl in anime having a huge boner then the nose bleed must stay all so fillers are important to buy time because if they will continue the main story with no source materials and without leting the manga to reach to an end we will get what we got in the end of season 8 in the show game of thrones which is a massed up shity made up ending that is nothing like the awesome ending that was spouse to be so unless you want that from now on animes shell be limited to be created only for finished mangas it a thing that sadly we all must endure, as for fan service well nothing is wrong with fan service you may don't like it but that because you are a girl and don't care much about sexy girls but i can assure you that we guys do care and do like it not all in the world made for every one this fan service is for us guys and they are anime for girls and in thous animes they are plenty of fan service for girls with tone of hot shirtless guys for the girls to enjoy watching so don't assume people don't like it just because you don't and wail i do agree on many of the things you said some thing have there reasons and are kinda a "necessary evil" as for all the transformations well that for the toy sells like basically Frizza have 4 forms which means 4 times more figures to sell and i'm sorry but anime creators do need munny and figures bring munny it is a business after all and if the anime creators will not have munny we anime fans will not have anime shows to enjoy they are many things you seem to assume and to see as unneeded without truly understand the reasons behind it all but trust me if its exist there probably a reason to it.

    Miroku is a pervert and 95% of the time does deserve the beating sango or other women give him and Death the Kid in that one clip you showed squeezed Liz and Patty's breast because they were not symmetrical which is a form of sexual assault.

    Muroku from Inuyasha is a pervert he is he is, there's only a 5% chance it was an accident when it comes to muroku. 95% of its when he's perverted, he ask random ladies will they bear his child, he gropes on his female counterpart/parts

    Girl with big rack and perfect ass ends up loving the nerdy male lead for NO REASON! And to top it off, says she's nevwr been in love, never had sex or the dumbest one, never had anyone interested in them!
    You cannot convince me that a drop dead gorgeous bombshell has NEVER been interested or interesting to other men until this loser with no redeeming qualities showed up.
