Do you ever not watch an anime because the art is ugly?

I do that all the time; How appealing the art is has a really big influence on whether or not I watch an Anime.

I make it a point to watch at least 10 episodes for 30+ anime, 5 episodes for 24 anime, and 3 for 12 anime.

When I first Saw [url=http://www.crunchyroll.com/erin]Erin, I almost just insta stopped watch because at first the animation was horrible.
Thankfully I stuck with my rule, and it was episode 6-7 that sealed the deal for me to keep watching to the end.

I put it as my #1 Anime on my profile because it was awesome.

I'm not hugely particular about art style, though I do prefer certain things. The only anime that I can think of off the top of my head that I couldn't stand the art so much that I had to stop watching was the Count of Monte Cristo. But the animation in that isn't really anime style in the first place.

I'd be far more likely to stop watching a series if the story doesn't interest me. While some series will have lots of scenery porn, or well choreographed action sequences, and I find those to be a plus...bad art isn't really a minus for me. Story and characters sell a story for me. The rest is just eye candy.

Nope. I usually don't watch an anime if the characters have weird ass colour for their hair. It...turns me off.

While great art style and quality animation can make an otherwise mediocre show worth watching, I will also say that I don't drop shows on the basis of the art style or animation quality. It's fun to look at pretty things, but the content is what makes a show interesting. I've found that even with styles I dislike, I get used to it within the first couple of episodes anyway. As with reality, appearances are easy to ignore if you're interested in the character and personality of the show.

What if people don't watch a show because the animation art is crappy but the story is god-tier? A lot of people miss out on great stories this way if they're nit-picky about varying art styles. Going from stuff like Crayon Shin-Chan to Shigurui: Death Frenzy in terms of art style doesn't bother me. Kukukukukuku....

Shigurui is really amazing :D! Simply love the art! But so many ppl dislike it cuz of the darkness in the art and i find that sad Also the story is somewhat discussable but imo its perfectly made and i cant see why ppl dont like it

Yes, it's a very gruesome tale, but that's why I like it. Wish we got to see the final duel between the two at the beginning, but there's always the manga for that.

I wouldnt call it ugly , its just not my style of art and Yes .

Some art style is the reason why I dont watch the anime for example Lupin and when the art is too kidsy , I wont watch that either like Inuzama Eleven.

But there are those with animation that looks cheap , Ithat discourages me too but I cant remember which one

and yes I will miss out if its pretty good, but still I wont enjoy watching decause it will drive me nuts.There was this baseball anime Cross Game that when I first saw it, I couldnt finish it but when my group was watching it and saw the story is really good then I decided to consciously force myself to watch it . Its a very good baseball anime. .

The art is essential for me to bother watching a show. If i don't like the character designs or artwork in general, i usually don't watch it. But there have been exceptions, if the story and soundtrack, and other important things holds it's ground, i usually give it a chance anyways.

Exactly! Its all about perspective! Everyone has their own idea of what is ugly to them. In my opinion, all anime doesn't have to be visually striking to be appealing. If the content is there, I'm hooked.
