Tv tropes is a website that lists several "Tropes" or common "story" elements that appear in fiction. the site covers essentially everything from culture-related tropes (such as Bishonen, which is a primarily "Japanese" culture aesthetic) to more universal tropes, such as Love, vengeance, etc, etc. the site features pages on upon PAGES of examples of tropes appearing in anime, manga, videogames, tv, music, essentially anything that requires putting pen to paper.
As a website, it is ADDICTING (if a bit swear-heavy. they love the term bad@$$, and use it everywhere they can). as the site says "Tv tropes will ruin your life" because, just as Loreley
said, you will jump from trope to trope, trying to find examples in your favorite manga/anime/song/whatever. I'm on it all the time, and I get nothing done, lol
