Pretty much this


Same, except, perhaps, the more memorable ones get analyze more to understand why I find them so memorable... but that's after the fact. In the moment, enjoyment.

Hmmm, when it comes to anime, the artwork has to be in the style that I like in order to get my attention.
After that, I have to feel connected to the characters emotions, and the plot line obviously has to interest me.

If I'm not enthusiastic about watching the next episode, then I know the Anime has failed me, personally.

Basically, whether I am enjoying the experience or not.

It depends on what the anime is trying to sell to me. I mentally give each anime parameters on what they are trying to give to the viewer. Is it trying to be different and present an art style? Is it a slice of life, therefore putting more emphasis on the characters? Is it an action that promises good action scenes. Is it trying to not be that groundbreaking and only exists because of fanservice? After making parameters and thinking if the anime did what it tried to do for me, then I think if it's something only I can enjoy or if I can recommend it to other people.

My younger days: Cute anime girls, they story didn't matter to me so much, but the artwork had to appeal to me as well and couldn't be too violent. Now: Story, animation, and the cute girls is a bonus. I tend to look for more bloody, mature subject anime.

I normally give every show a chance, and watch at least the first three episodes. I have only dropped two shows. One because the art was super ugly, and to story was boring. And the second one because it was so boring that I fell asleep sitting up while watching it. I guess I judge it on how much I personally enjoy it.

I'm not a huge critic on anything, including anime. If I like it, I keep watching to the end.

Things I do look for though are good story/character development, nice animation/art style, and an interesting story line.

Artwork draws me in, story/characters/dialogue keeps me there.

I don't have any "criteria", outside of not liking a bunch of "fan service" elements. Those just aren't for me and turn me off to a show completely almost instantly - suprisingly, Kill la Kill is the only one I've seen that kept me watching.

If I were to review any shows, it would be a bit different but I'm not too picky when it comes to just watching shows to enjoy them.

Fairly simple matter of if I enjoy the experience or not, and how long it sticks around with me.

It's sounds terrible, but I can't watch an anime that hasn't got good artwork. If the style isn't to my taste, I don't watch it (FMA,Bleach etc).


I completely agree with you. It might be shallow of me, and I might miss some great anime, but I just can't watch something that doesn't look well drawn or detailed. I like anime that is pleasing to the eye, and I have kind of found that I like all genres of anime if they are drawn in certain styles.

I don't care too much for character development or a deep, complicated plot.
