What anime genres do you like? Are there also any types that you can't stand to watch?

All genres are good, it's a matter of how the show uses it's genre to a good effect and the production quality of the show.

but i really love fantasy shows especially those that have sword fighting or are set in Medieval times.
if a show is mature enough that it needs not to flaunt Fan service everywhere is also good. Not that fan service is bad, but if its not used correctly or in moderation it can throw off a whole series.

Some harems i can't stand ( ie, Heavens lost propert) because of super excessive fan service and enlarged mammary glands. that try and cover up its immature humor and so so story.

I'm not a big fan of Mecha animes other then NGE and Full metal Panic. Don't know why any other Mecha show is just meh.

When you say "Anime Generes" do you mean genres in general or the very few genres specifically linked to anime? I have to assume the former, because the only few "anime genres" I can think of are pretty unloved in general.
I'm a huge fan of the mecha genres myself, anything Sci-fi-esque is pretty intriguing to me. Not that I really limit myself to genres when it comes to loving shows, as most shows I do enjoy aren't even close to Sci-fi.

I like Comedy, and Adventure.

Don't like dark comedy, or Ecchi, or Yaoi. Plus some others.

I have seen great shows in almost every genre.
Though I avoid Yaoi and Hentai for obvious reasons.
I would have to say that I love Slice of life dramas/comedies and especially if they have the guts to make it not set in a highschool.

I really like dark action anime. I'm guessing that's not an officially recognized genre.

I'm also not into the harem stuff.

I'm actually the type that's quite picky about anime genres. i'll watch practically any genre, but if i see something in it i dont like (ie. over use of fan service) i'll drop it, unless the plot is extremely good.

i sort of have two sides: a romance, comedy, and shojo girl side

and the jumping around on sofas like a little 10 year old boy side. I love Naruto and Reborn and all the cool fight scene things.

I'm really into Action, Romance, Adventure, Comedy, and Slice of life. But I'll really watch anything as long as it's good. The only genre I tend to avoid is yaoi.

I like almost all genre from slice of life to some pretty brutal animes like Berserk. All time favorite is definitely Action-Adventure or Action-Romance.

Pretty sure harem no baka loosely translates into something like harem's fool, or fool of harems. Basically you're implying that you're stupid crazy about harems and not that harems are stupid as you seemed like you wanted to say. I think something like harem wa oroka-na is probably closer to what you were trying to say.

My favorites:
Harems (kind of picky about which harems though)
Romantic Comedies
Seinen/Shounen


What I can't stand to watch doesn't really depend on the genre but more with the show itself
