Lead females too quickly to fall in love...getting really blushing when a "bam bump" or "thump" happens in "love at first sight" situations. ~With guys I tend to be okay with this situation because I find it uncommon.

Unnecessary ecchi/panties shots/HUGE BOOBS on stick figure women (that wouldn't exist in real-life)...I care nothing for it.

Lol the super giant boobs in shounen are what made me a fan of lolis.

I don't really understand how someone (it's usually the guy) who's older (maybe in their early 20's) can fall for an immature girl (mid-teens).
That really turns me off from a lot of manga, because I just feel like everything about a relationship like that feels fak or forced.
If the author wants to have an older guy with a younger girl I want to see an explanation of why he fell in love with her, or have the girl have a personality where it's obvious why he would fall in love with her, but in most stories like these the girl is this insecure, immature, usually bumbling idiot of a person and the guy is suave and cool and mature that to me it makes no sense and I don't particularly like it.

Another thing that I consider a turn off for me:
When the characters don't match one another. Either the girl is drawn looking way tooooo young even though they are both supposed to be in high school and the guy is once again the cool looking even- -seems-older type of character, or just again, the girl is so whiny that I have to ask myself, "How did this happen?"

And I usually don't care for "love at first sight" unless it's really well done.

Any sort of cheating. Excessive delinquent hair styles, blonde blue-eyed half Japanese, German or American transfer students, intense yuri.

-Weak or cowardly male lead

-Excessive nosebleeds in sexual situations

-Annoying side characters who always interrupt romantic scenes, or who have a seething hatred of the main character for no reason at all.

-Bad endings where the main character(s) die at the end

-Sudden plot twists that turn a good manga into a terrible manga (EX: Utawarerumono, I facepalmed when they first introduced giant robots into what was more or less a medieval world)

-When a character decides to live a boring normal life over a much more interesting life, or when a character decides to give up their superpowers. (EX: Choosing to abandon a world full of cool supernatural stuff to go back to highschool just ends things on a sour note for me)

-Inconsistencies in power throughout the series. (This is especially bad in series that are primarily centered around action/fighting)

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
that one guy bit the other guys dick off >>

Well I hate rape when it's a bunch of girls trying to rape one guy and the guy is freaking out and trying to get away... for someone who hasn't had a gf for a few years I would murder that guy and take his spot lmao </3

I tend to drop a manga if:
1. It starts off with a clear couple showing who will end up with who and then it turns into a harem.
2. When the main character ignores his childhood friend for someone else.
3. When a manga gets rid of a plot just to go with fanservice.

I think thats pretty much it.

1. Harems. Totally. You know, the kind about useless guys who somehow end up with huge boobed maids? Well, I don't like reverse-harems either... but it's something that I can still stand by a thin line, for hot guys of course. If the guys turn out stupid and the girl isn't worthy? Another story.
2. Goody-two-shoes & saints. Yea, I absolutely hate manga that is all love peace justice. With a innocent crybaby heroine to top it off. Even worse off if they have a world will end theme.
3. Tsunderes. Both male and female. They need more respect.

Let's see... what else?
Oh! As a female, of course ecchi and hentai. Male perverts = =.
I tend to avoid mangas that well... you know, those comedies that lean towards the embarassing side? I just can't bear watching them ><.
And the million other reasons mangas can be boring.

Yanderes. Female more than male

reverse time skip, especially, if they make the last chapter the first one. there are some of those. talk about spoilers

the obvious triangle/harem chance. or when you have a harem manga, but in reality it's only love triangle.

stupid, dense, annoying main character (or other characters)

repetition. be it the girl falling almost every fifth page (meine liebe), or guy coming into a room, where girl changes clothes every f*****g chapter, or plot repetitions, ....

if the mangaka is trying to brainwash us with his/her moral thinking (I could make examples, but I'm afraid some people might get offended.

characters, that are considered smart, but in reality are the stupidest: special a, that police woman in sanctuary

too emo mangas, that try to be psychological, but failed. Doubt (TONOGAI Yoshiki)...

I don't really care for art, but you know these shounen types, where they don't make shadows and every scenery is looking like sand with few rocks... I'm talking now about 666 satan, but there are more like that.

when I'm by art, the too fluffy shoujos, especially when the story is not that bad. Or moe.

the obvious endings (but sometimes it doesn't really matter, if the manga is good, for example romance shoujos and shounens where there isn't a love triangle don't really need an end, you know)

no story at all and not funny (4 komas and such don't need a story)

the worst there could be is, if the manga have a bad ending, no ending at all, and so on. that's why I look for coments, before I start reading something.

...there is more

This. With some addition:
When the main chara already beat the boss that supposed to be "the strongest", then appear another oh so ridiculously strong antagonist. And our beloved mc (after defeated the previous "boss"and saving the world) seem so weak now, that you start to wonder, " Is this guy the one who just defeat *insert previous boss here or is it just my imagination?"

It's worse when that last boss who almost destroyed the world becomes friends with the MC and helps him fight against the new boss but looses in 2 seconds because he somehow becomes the weakest character ever.
