First post best post.

The west has a weird fixation with eyes as well. Not really an anime exclusive trope.

This pretty much. It's suppost to be about how the character literally see's the world differentl than others.

So of course it's perfect chunni bait, nothing more special than seeing what the blind masses can't.

Anything Type-moon.

code geass, all over the place in nasuverse, kekkai sensen and to a lesser extent death note are all things that instantly come to mind

pretending to have one is also #1 chunni sterotype

This. It's also a good way to power up a character with minimal physical training or effort.

I'm pretty sure it stems from legends about ninja hypnosis techniques and then just spiraled out from there. Other cultures have hypnosis legends fucking everywhere too, though, but I guess it just caught on more in Japanese pop culture.
