When choosing what anime you want to watch next, How do you do it? Do you look at the most popular/ highest rated or perhaps go by what genre you want to watch. Say you have a huge list like myself, How do you decide? As my list gets more and more bigger, I find it pretty hard to choose just one. I tend to just choose at random or go by what kind of mood I'm in.
I need a better system really

At often times, I choose them based on overall theme, chronological order, or my friends' suggestions. Occasionally, I watch them out of curiosity, particularly to understand why us it so hyped.

I guess from popularity and good reviews. I have a ton I need to watch, but it really depends on what mood I'm in to decide what I'm going to watch next.

Top secret formulaic process, including three weeks of intense preparation and only a thirty minute lunch break each day.


No but seriously, I go by star rating usually. Anything under four I avoid.

I have quite a large checklist that ranges to magical girls to slice of life if it has anyone of theses elements I drop it like its hot.

If I hear it's popular, I'll check it out.

But sometimes, I search online, read the description, and then go on google images to check out the art.
If I find it appealing, I'll watch.

There are around 50+ anime that i have only watched the first episode to, so depending on my mood, i just choose from that..

If I am feeling like a nihilist, I'll watch a romcom or something where I can take my mind off things.
If I am happy, I'll watch dark, grim, and edgy works.

Well the genre depends on my mood. If I just watched an action fighting anime, I'll want to watch maybe a relaxing romance, or vice versa. So I look at popular animes in whatever genre I wanna watch.

I'll cast around until I find something interesting looking and then google it to see the art style. I might also check its scores on MAL/Hummingbird to gauge its hype level, but I don't actually read or watch any reviews beforehand.

Then I give it 1-4 episodes to see if I like it.

And if I like it but it doesn't fit my mood it goes on a list for later.

Persuasion from videos of others and highly rated reviews from reviewers I personally agree with.

I also look for shows that hare that hook. Iwatch episode one and judge, and some shows blow me away.
