Regardless of what the graphics might look, I prefer checking who produced the anime first, followed by reading the synopsis. There are plenty of anime to watch, originality and story lines are one those qualification that cannot be taken for granted, a well made anime stands-out even in the shade... That's for sure, however, there are those moments when I am more inclined to watch something absolutely hilarious instead. *smiles*

I usually go by recomendations, But if not than it will go like this

1st Genra, I have to know what I'm in the mood for

2nd Art , hard to enjoy it if I don't like the way it looks

3rd Summary, It needs to interest me

4th Watch, and so it begins,

5th Characters, Even if it has a great plot with beautiful art I cannot enjoy it if I don't like any of the characters

I tend to go with a cover first. If it doesn't appeal to me then I can't watch it. A cover can tell you a lot about an anime in my opiniion. Some cover's can be mis leading though, like those with just the name of the anime on the front haha. Anyway, then it comes down to watching the first 2 epiosodes. After that, if i don't like it then im done haha.

By throwing darts on the computer screen...

Recommendations from people, but only if the genres and style is right for the mood
-> Covers, but only if the genres and style is right for the mood
--> First episode, reconsidering if story, genre, style, characters are worth watching

Randomly finding a name in an anime list that sounds interesting also have worked a couple of times

If I see an anime that looks really cool in an AMV then I plan to watch it.

I usually get mine from recommendations, then I watch the first 5 or so episodes to see if I'm really into it ^.~

But i'm not one to usually drop an anime, so I tend to watch it all the way through

I check to see if there are any good voice actors in it. I can understand a good amount of japanese but I do love certains english voice actors. Also I get recommendations from friends. Most of the stuff on the funimation website is appealing to me.

Can you recognize the voices or do you have to look them up to see someone you like in particular?

Randomly search thru descriptions and if it sounds good I'll watch it.
Edit: But it has to be good for me to keep watching it. If the first episode sucks, I'll give it chance and skip to last episode to see if it'll be worth it. Darker Than Black is one of the few animes I didn't watch the ending of first. That and Cowboy Bebop.

I do recognize my favorite voice actors, many of them play characters in Clannad, Angel Beats, and Fairy Tale. But if I look up titles that, for example, Grey Ayers plays in, I know it will be a pretty good comedy and/or drama. That's how I do my research. I dont go by reviews at all.

I love anime previews!
That and I usually take recomendations from friends who tell you why they like it. It gives youba bit of perspective as to who they are a bit.
Amvs help too. If anything else watchingnan anime gives you the right to bag on it of you dont like it because you bought it...so it seems a fair exchange to be able to criticize it after it taking time out of your day and money from ya.
Personally i think everything(not just anime) has its own appeal. Most gear to personal preference.
Last anime I watched nust because of a preview was
Speed Grapher and that's now one of my favorites.
Bacciano I watched because of an amv.
Casshern Sins I watched because I liked the original but this one definitly stands toe to toe. Nostalgia(im not sure if thats the right spelling though)
Canaan was by recomendation by a friend.
And I just finished "Oh edo rocket" because I started it at anime expo last year and wanted to finish it.

Generally don't watch previews, what I really do is go to Google Images and see the images for the respective anime. This way I see if I like or not, I did it in all the animes that I've watched.
