For me it doesn't matter what the genre is. First thing is the timing. Would a series like Naruto or One Piece do as well if they came out during the anime boom. Then longevity. Will I remember or care about the series after 5 years.

All it needs to do is simply Excel in whatever genre they are doing.

Take Baka Test for example, it excelled in its genre, which was comedy.

Take Clannad for example, it excelled in its genre, which was drama.

Take Hidamari Sketch for example, it excelled in its genre, which was Slice of Life..../comedy

What makes a great anime for me is the story line. I like to watch complicated story lines that have depth to them. Like Code Geass or Gundam Seed. There was always some new secret or a new twist to it that kept me interested.

You know anime is decent when its going to last longer than 12 + one extra episode.

What ?

Did you honestly expect my standards to be higher ?

I only watch this stuff to kill time anyway and to pretend someone in this world actually managed to make a plot I didn't figure out.

... then again sometimes they do that, curious beings those Japanise Manga & Anime minds.

I'm all about the characters. If you can't connect with any of them or if they are unrealistic, then the anime won't be good. Watching the characters interract and the bonds they form with each other is really important. It's the emotions that make an anime great to me.

Me its all story. It can have terrible artwork, audio and overdone genre but if the story is good I'll be hooked. Sometimes I also enjoy some thing purposely stupid for the heck of it.

a great anime can be criticized with its genre~!!!!!!!
if it's a romantic anime- it should have a unique love story!!!!!! (like it is one of a kind) and the characters must be well developed and of course they must have a very good chemistry!!!!!!! [♥♥♥
if it's a comedy one- it must be funny.... yeah!!! very funny but with a really good story!!!!!!!
if it's an action anime- well, it must be action-packed!!!!!!!!! but definitely it must have a good storyline!!!!!!

nevertheless, anime rocks!!!!!!!!

some things people usually don't mind not seeing in anime, but also which can make a story super-
cliches mar anime. most anime that have romantic themes in them are usually forgettable. they've got sweet cliches. everythin is just so damn sweet.

abt the plot, well, make it comprehensible.

don't indivisualize the characters too much. for example, two characters in one story havin a similar trait isn't unusual, but ppl usually don't see that.

it's not always necessary to have a love triangle. a yaoi love triangle is always possible.

what else? umm, good music, ofcuz.

good ending. start the story however u like, ofcuz. but it's always classier to relate the end and the beginning of the story, i mean, like, the end reminds you of the first scene. i find it cool.

proportions. don't overdo things.

unique, memorable scenes.
