It really depends on the show, and whether or not the title is recognized on the Japanese end. If it is, then I prefer the American title name. If it is not recognized, then the Japanese title wins out. Shows like Full Metal Alchemist, Attack on Titan, and Irregular at Magic High School all have the English name written on the original Japanese source material and in those cases I prefer the American title. Shows like Chuunibyou, Your Lie in April, and Engaged to the Unidentified do not and in those cases I prefer the Japanese title. And then there are instances where an English title from the Japanese source is available, but not used like Inou Battle Within Everyday Life and My Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong as I Expected where there's no justification whatsoever for coming up with a different title when one already exists. More often than not, I prefer the English title to maintain consistency.
