I read the synopsis or descriptions both here and elsewhere on line. If I think it's interesting I'll check it out. I usually can tell by the third episode if I think it sucks.

I think so. When I think anime I don't think meaningful content.

If the character designs are not aesthetically pleasing to me then I won't watch it and I don't care.

I used to judge by cover, though I learned my lesson when it came to HxH (The description just seems really stupid to me )

It's fine to judge something by it's cover, if it doesn't catch your attention in any way, does it really deserve to be watched? Of course you could watch it anyways and end up really enjoying it, but sometimes first impressions are extremely important.

I usually watch the intro or watch some clips from it and then decide because i like anime that has a good animation style and looks nice. But i also want to know what the story is about before i jump into it

Using the cover can be a good idea as developers do try to make the cover represent the show, however that will never tell you everything you need to judge it...

I usually look at a combination of the reviews/comments, the art, and which anime shows are compared to the one I'm looking at.

Absolutely! In myanimelist I always check the reviews and tags and the general info and decide whether to give it a go or not.

For me it's usually the cover, description, genre, reviews, and after that i always give it the 3 episode try before i decide whether or not ill continue watching it.

Or do you still choose to give it a go even if it doesn't seem to be that good?


Animenewsnetwork has 3090 TV series, 2341 OAVs, 1334 movies listed in their encyclopedia... nobody got time for that!

There's nothing wrong with what your doing... It's only unfair when you say something sucks and you haven't even seen 1 episode yet.

I always watch the first 2-3 episodes before deciding

I try not to, but sometimes the art work is very important to me, and if I see too many generic things, I'll often not watch it. Unless I like the description, but even then it won't do it justice.


yeah me too , atleast to some degree but if the art and picture goes good with title/genre then I would watch few videos to get into it.

The only times I will judge an anime by it's cover is if it's evidently fan-service galore and/or ecchi. I can't stand that sort of thing.
