Animé Tropes: The Sequel

Last year Steveg and I did a highly amusing panel on Anime Archetypes and Tropes, and we're on again this year (Monday at 9:30AM I think).

So, as with last year, make a suggestion (preferably one that we didn't talk about last time) and we'll work as many as possible into the panel as follows:

a) Brief Description.
b) Earliest usage that the panellists (aka the Grumpy Old Fen) can remember.
c) Best usage that the panellists can remember
d) Discussion as to whether the archetype is generally good or bad
e) Should you run away now if you encounter it? (And failing that are the panellists just over it because it keeps coming up again. And again. And, oh look, there it is again).
