Favorite
Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Zero
problems
1) Slow moving first episode
2) Crappy art and animation in many of the distant shots (Thanks Studio Deen)
3) Slow wind up to the action
4) long chunks of exposition
5) CG Dragon
6) Circular Paths
7) Expensive



Least Favorite
Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles
Praise
1) Good background music
2) Good premise
3) Clamp cameos (Chi)
4) Nice slipcover

As an aside, Tsubasa was so awful the Clamp team disowned the anime, it's one of the worst things I've ever tried watching. I'm finished with two of the nine discs after two years with it on my shelf.

Let's see...

Favorite Anime = Clannad ~After Story~
Personally, I don't think that there is anything wrong with the show, hence why it is my favorite. However, I will point out two things:
1) If there is a low point in the series, it is the first 8 episodes. To me, it's not so much that they are bad (because they are not), but that the rest of the episodes afterward are so good and that these mini-arcs are not as good as the 5 arcs from the first season. Again, they're not bad by any means, but episodes 9-22 are just soooo good in comparison.
2) While the ending theme TORCH is very good, it's a little too upbeat for some of the sadder moments of the show. It can seem awkward at times to watch an episode that ends on a very sad note and have it followed up with an upbeat ending theme.

Least Favorite = Elfen Lied, Deadman Wonderland
Normally, I would say Elfen Lied since I dropped it after only about a minute due to the massive amount of nudity in it. However, I also realize that this is by no means the only anime filled with nudity; it just happens to be one I stumbled upon when I was first looking at anime. Plus, I only saw a very short part of it. Therefore, I decided to also list my least favorite show that I have seen most or all of. I have watched 9 of the 12 episodes of Deadman Wonderland on Toonami, and I can definitely say that if it does not end on a good note, it will go down as the worst anime that I have seen all of. In regards to good parts that these shows have...
Elfen Lied
I will say I did like the opening theme to the show. It is much different than any other theme I have heard in an anime.
Deadman Wonderland
1) While I might not morally agree with the lyrics to the song, I can't deny that the lyrics to the opening theme fit the show very well and it sounds very good. I'll even catch my self every once in a while singing "I will be your deadman // With nothing but this blood on my hands // Stuck in your 'wonderland'..."
2) Shiro is one of the very few reasons why I am still watching this show. I find her character amusing, plus she is voiced by Monica Rial, which is a plus. I'm still hoping the show explains what's special/unique about her.

Favorite: Detective Conan

Series is too long, never-ending

Least Favorite: Clannad

I like Kyoto Animation


I'm guessing you're saying that you like the art and animation? By saying that you like Kyoto Animation, you are really just praising the animation company (possibly for their other works?) and not the animation that they did in this show. It's my understanding that most people who do not like Clannad don't like moe, which is an attack against the animation and art. If this is the case, it would also seem weird to praise a company that is known mostly for their moe. I rarely read reviews where someone hated Clannad and it did not involve moe and the animation to a significant degree.

Most favorite: One Piece
Recently the animation has been quite bad on extra characthers(the ones that really isn't important). Just becaus they're extras, they shouldn't look as retarded as they do. It looks like something anyone that can hold a pencil can draw.
Some of the supportive characthers has worse animation now too.
Even Jimbei looks quite bad sometimes in the latest arc.

Hmm least favorite is that first Tekken movie, but I can't remember anything about it, just that it was horrible.
Hmm from recently watched: Hyouka
Good animations(show offs :P).

(Fave) Baccano!: Not enough character development, pretty confusing and really boring in the beginning.
(Hated) Elfen Lied: Good OP. Not much else, it's really hard to praise that PoS.

A very interesting and praiseworthy concept to consider.

My favorite anime would be Kemono no Souja Erin
Demerits
1. Very slow pace
2. Excessive use of flashbacks (even dedicated flashback episodes)
3. Childish art style and animation
4. Certain sound effects and songs are reused far too often

My least favorite anime would be Girl's High
Merits
1. Pretty good fan service (for those who enjoy that)
2. Quite humorous at times
3. Somewhat more relatable characters (or characters that seem somewhat more realistic, i guess?)

Favorite: Hunter x Hunter

1. Borderline homoerotic (not a bad thing though lol)
2. Good fucking characters die.
3. Main character is pretty cliche at the beginning
4. A bit slow at times (original anime)
5. Terrible animation for the GI OVA's
6. Explains things a little bit complicated (nen and some other things, but mainly in the manga...)



Least favorite: Fairy Tail

1. It always tries to have fun.
2. Some characters are likable and unique.
3. It's easy to watch
4. Fanservice
5. The Tower of Heaven arc was pretty good.

Its main genres are Shounen and Comedy.
How is that not mainstream?
Sure an anime about making breads was "unique" when it aired back then.
But you can obviously point out the cliches and predictable shit it used to appeal to the general public,
which UNFORTUNATELY for you, failed.
Just because the show flopped harder than Kim Kardashian's single and that few people know about it
don't make it any less mainstream.

Aight, aight.

Can't really call this my all-time favorite but I'll talk about it nonetheless.

Favorite: Mushi-shi



Minimal attention to character design and animation as a whole is pretty meager.

Least Favorite: X (TV Series)



I liked the seiyuu involved.
