does someone tell you what anime to watch,

do you read anime reviews?

influenced by the crunchyroll community?

or you just go with flow ( popular choice)

do you scan the anime index and starts with the letter A and so on...(good idea)

so how..??? do you do it?

The way I watch anime is like this :
1. I see the chart made by people for the next season
2. Tadaa.



You shouldn't be influenced by anything as for watching anime because it is for your own personal interest, and reviews here on Crunchyroll are based on the people their own interest, which means you and him might not even have the same tastes in it nor view it the same way.

If I hear good things about the anime (by forum posters, not website reviewers) or if it has a similar genre as another series I've seen.

A lot of factors: friends recommendations, popular rating, catching trailers/commercials, and whether or not it is easily available.

hmmm..... first is recommendations from my friends... then am gonna search for that anime and read it's genre.. I also like the anime with good character designs and am gonna read the summary of it (which is basically 3-5 sentences only.) and if I like it, am gonna read/watch it... I dun watch anime based on it's popularity,, like, I still haven't watched Bleach until now..

Many ways really,
One would go see if it is a Gonzo
Gonzo = Good (the characters will look great and the story is meh to great)
Here are some Gonzo anime: Afro Samurai, Chrno Crusade, Dragonaut - The Resonance, Full Metal Panic!, Hellsing, Kiddy Grade, Last Exile, Rosario + Vampire, Saki, Shangri-La (have not seen this), Speed Grapher, Strike Witches, Tower of Druaga - the Aegis of Uruk, Witchblade

Other ways would be:
- Friend recommendation
- Just looking trough a list of anime and pick one because of the name
- Watching a photo, clip or gif of an anime

Popular rating is overrated, just because an anime is not mainstream does not make it any worse or better then it is
If you only go by ratings you will most likely not come across these pearls(unless you see a hell of a lot of anime) :
Zone of the Enders: Dolores, i, low on ratings but an fantastic anime [Action, Adventure, Comedy, Mecha, Sci-Fi, Military]
Mahou Senshi Louie / Rune Soldier, Magician like you never seen before... [Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Magic, Shounen]
Melody of Oblivion, Hard to explain... but monsters rule the world and a fight against them [Adventure, Fantasy, Horror, Mecha, Sci-Fi, Shounen, Space, Supernatural, Psychological]

reccomendation by friends,,then i check'em out on google first,,just to see how the chars look like,,not the reviews since i hate reading so much,,then if the graphics are cool in my opinion,,like normal,,not too pointy or weird,,well-drawn,,fashionable,,then ill watch it =3
tho for some anime like angel beats,,the main char looks hm ugly ish not my taste,,as ic how the story goes and the other chars look like i still watched it =3 cheeheehee,,so id say it heavily depends on graphics and genre(has to be comedy and something else)
=3

I watch the first EP

Too much Ecchi? REJECTED

Atypical storyline? REJECTED

Annoying characters? REJECTED

Excess unrealism? REJECTED

Horrible dialogue? REJECTED

Sadly, not a lot of anime meets my standards.

The art and story.

I use the encyclopedia on animenewsnetwork to find new anime to watch because I already know what kind of series I like and dislike.
