Annie has just enough burst damage and CC (stun) to kill you 100%->0% if she uses all her abilities and you have no extra health/MR from items. Solution: get some health and MR, you'll find if you can survive the initial stun+burst she isn't much of a threat. Specifically, getting a catalyst early on is good for most champions, and it can later be built into banshee's veil to basically neutralize Annie's threat. [Edit: this is 1v1, of course. If she and a teammate are ganking you then she can still burst you pretty easily even with some health/MR, but really any champions can win 2v1, see anti-gank tips below.]

Other than that, just general anti-getting-ganked tips apply: watch the minimap, stay close to your tower if enemy champions are MIA, don't push/cross the river alone, keep your health up, if you get under half you're not safe even at a tower (so go heal), if your enemies start roving around in a 3+ man gank crew, find your own teammates and do the same.

Stack a bit more HP. I personally have trouble one-comboing people with over 1~1.2k health.

Buy Mercury Threads, the CC reduction hurts her a lot.

Banshee's Viel makes almost every caster cry.

Don't face her 1v1 unless you know her ult is down or recently used, even then be careful.

Annie's ganking is the most straightforward of, if not all, champions. Expect to be bombed by Tibbers at any moment.

If all else fails stack more HP and Magic Resist. Annie will scale badly as the game drags on as her burst damage diminishes.

You have understand that Annie role is changing during the game. Early-mid game she is a ganker.

Late game she become only useful as a stunner.

She will try to drop tibber (AoE Stun) in team fight to stun your DPS (drop on carry). She will probably wait till the fight have already started to come in (walk or flash) and drop her aoe stun.

If you catch her off guard focus her immediatly (careful, this could be a bait if she's standing next to a brush). Annie is very squishy, a stunned Annie is a dead Annie. If she did trop her Tibber, don't waste your time focus her. Her damage late game doesnt scale great and like I said before, she's only usefull for her AoE stun. So you better focus the other team's carry first.

I build Annie as a tanky support/mid laner and if she stuns you you are dead don't get stunned and you can kill her also Annie has low mobility so if her flash is down teamfighting and ganking are smart ideas

If you can have her forced to use her skills to cs properly, she will have trouble keeping her stun up all the time, pay attention to that. As she will have to burn extra mana and cd to get her stun ready.

Eh, her Q refunds mana cost on kills and has a decent range so she basically just last hits with that forever. If you shove the lane under her tower she might have to burn some spells to try to waveclear, but then you're setting yourself up for a gank.
