There's plenty of bad anime out there. Most ecchi is really bad for me while Saint Seiya was pretty much the worse you can get.

Eh, it depends on someone's opinion on whether they like it or not. (I had a feverish Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED Destiny addiction, but after comparing it to other animes, I thought the two series were low-budget and badly written.)

There is no "bad" anime out there. Theres just the ones that are boreing, stupid, make no sense, have no meaning, or they're just gay.
But animes that i would not mind not watching are Bobobo n things along those lines...

There is plenty of bad anime out there. There was alot of crap made in the mid-late 90s - bad production, horrible story and characters, etc. But every anime generation has it's share of garbage. Most of it doesn't make it out here to the states (or west in general) though, so I can see why people would have an idealized view of anime. Just remember bad anime is like a cockroach - for every one you see there are a hundred you don't.

Cliche shonen action (naruto and dbz) maybe boring and mediocre, but I'm not so sure I'd call them bad per se, but they tend to warrant excessive hatred in proportion their excessive praise.

Nowadays there is rarely a genuinely bad anime made since the production values are so high, so I'd so most are just mediocre. I can't think of too many example since I'm so picky with what I watch anymore I rarely subject myself to anime I don't enjoy.

Any anime that has more than 15 filler episodes is a bad anime to me.

A bad anime to me is when its stupid and random and doesn't follow a basic storyline *bobobobobobobobo for instance*

While it's all subjective, in my humble opinion, most animes start out good but get progressively worse as they get longer and longer. I mean I loved Ruroni Kenshin...but they should have stopped after the Shishio arc, can anyone say "jump the shark." And do we really need another Dragon Ball series...really? Inuyasha was okay when I first started to watch it but like halfway through I was all, "shut up and end already" I still like the characters but I hate the story. I guess I like anime where the creators know when to stop and just let go.
