There's an 80% chance you won't watch an anime if the characters "look ugly"?

I can usually get over. I can say the "unique" art style of JoJo's bizarre adventure kept me from watching it for a long time

Idc if the character is ugly as long as the art is good and the character is not annoying.

I wouldnt really watch an anime if the characters were ugly, cuz to be honest if a character looks ugly, that would imply bad artwork as most artists want their art to look as good as possible so they dont really aim for ugly

I think for me there's a higher percentage than just 80...

If I don't like the art style, I most likely won't watch the anime.

I dunno.
I do admit that the appearance of characters can be a deciding factor for me to watch the show but that is not always the case.
Really depends.

There's a good chance i'll never watch Jojo's bizarrre adventure lol... I have read many manga with ugly characters though, that's usually the distinguish-er for me and tells me that i'll probably really enjoy the story (which is most likely glamorizing crime).

Any character that does excessive posing is likely to put me off, it is usually what looks most ugly to me despite the character's otherwise pleasant looks.

It's 100% actually.

The story and quality of the anime are more important to me.

False. One Piece taught me art style is never an issue if the anime is good.

While it is true that I'll be less likely to watch something if the character designs are just an eye sore to look at, to say that there's an 80% chance I won't watch it is not quite the best way to put things into perspective. There are some amazing shows out there that have awful character designs (and one such show is Monster), so while it's possible for a show to be excellent with ugly character designs, that will just give it a hard time bringing viewers to watch it.
