What is the very first thing that hits you before you say "Okay, i'll give this anime a try and see if I like it?"

Is it the art style? The short description of the story? A recommendation from a trusted source? Or do you just watch the very first thing that you see with no sense of what you're getting into?

Me? I personally prefer comedy/slice of life style anime with a cutesy art style. Anime like Chitose Get You, PoyoPoyo, Kill Me Baby, Yuru Yuri, and other stuff without over complicated shading, fight scenes, and other harsh stuff. (BTW, anyone recommend something in that genre? Shoujo? Looking for new stuff to watch. :3) So Just something simple, sweet, and relaxing. That doesn't mean I don't enjoy them; I thought Kill la Kill was excellent despite it not being my usual taste. :)

How about you?

Story - art - genres.

I dont care so much for the "cute" stuff. I dont want anything with cliches ive already seen a million times. Less echi, fanservice etc the better.

The genre, the story the story is very important and mostly by distraction, shows that you cant keep out of your head or make the time fly when you watch them. Several times I use a recommendation.

Usually I watch ones I liked as manga, or that I see a picture of and go.. Oh that looks interesting! I'll watch anything if I am in the right mood.

Yeah like they^ said I'll read a manga and think it'll be good as an anime, and I'll see if there's an anime to it.

Or I'll watch TV and see an anime and I'll decide to watch it.

Usually word of mouth or friendly recommendation, failing this I just look at the front cover artwork. Don't really know what I'm looking for, what makes me ignore some and click others.

I suppose I take all of that into account, but what I tend to place priority on is the premise of the story. I'm not really sure if I have a tendency toward a particular sort of premise, but I'm sure I do (pretty much everyone has a sort of story they tend to favour, however slightly).

For me the show desc. is a good guy. Followed by the artwork in the show desc.area. Sometimes the random show generator comes up with a winner like:m http://www.crunchyroll.com/dog-scissors I doubt I would have even bothered checking it out based on the name, but I did watch it and it is freaking hilarious,. So much so I had to get the BR of it. (And the fact my favorite VA (Monica Rial) has a decent role in it helps for the dubbed version.)

I have a look at the genres and covers of each series. I don't usually read the synopses shown in the charts.
I like comedy, romance and slice of life genres, but some animes also have action and I don't really fancy it. In these cases I watch the series opening to get a rough idea of it.

If I know the source material/familiar with the show/word of mouth/friend recommendation
Character Design, Art, Animation Studio, Voice Cast, Genre, Summary

If a totally new/unknown show
Summary, Genre, Art, Character Design, Animation Studio, Voice Cast

But I am always a sucker for pretty boys, so if the boys are pretty....11/10 will watch. And if the outfits/weapons are aesthetically pleasing
