I think OP is talking more about Japanese mannerisms being forced onto characters that are obviously not Japanese.

I ran into the perfect example yesterday, watching Michiko to Hatchin. Some little brown girl yelling, "Itadakimasu!" just doesn't make any sense.
It felt even more out of place in this show because everything else about it is very not Japanese.

I find that gasping, moaning, and other noises simply a necessary evil. Imagine the characters in scenes not making any sounds at all when something happens. It would seem a bit off to me, as if there is something missing that should be there. Of course, none of this happens in real life conversations.

The annoying thing is when American voice actors have to replicate those sounds and they mostly fail at not making it the most awkward thing ever. I present Vanille's moaning in FFXIII for a perfect example.

3D breasts look better. the only appeal of 2D are the faces expressing emotions with blushing, tears and big eyes more clearly. and the fact that 2D is inside an own world, where you take things that happen as they are - a character is portrayed as pure, so she must be pure; in reality she would have dirty thoughts once in a while, but the fictional world leaves those parts out. of course this works only as long as the plot is somewhat believeable; sudden fanservice insertion can be out-of-character and make people realize it is just a cartoon after all.

I-I'm sorry... It's just... Those games defined everything for me. It's how I developed a passion for technology. Currently studying Unix system infrastructure. I know I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for those games sparking my interest in hardware, software, and networking

Apparently tryhard children acting like adults is more common in japan. I'm surprised this doesn't lead to people growing up with fucked up fetishes everywhere.

Also, they have trouble tolerating the fizz on soda.

I hate it when a character goes into inner monologue mode and becomes an armchair psychologist to explain another character's actions.

Stuff like that is sometimes done to help the stupid people keep up, so sometimes it's not an issue of telling instead of showing because there's a point where you can't show something more clearly without it becoming ridiculous. Although that obviously only applies in cases where something was shown and then explained anyway and not when the explanation was your only way of finding it out.
