By genre? By length? By studio? Year of release?

You can compare any anime with any other anime. It's all subjective so don't let anyone tell you that there is a "correct" way to compare or criticize things.

Agreed.

When you feel like doing so.

Compare Log Horizon and SAO when you want to watch the world burn in hot blue flames.
Compare say, different seasons of JoJo's or arcs of One Piece internally for funsies.

When there is something to compare. Same genre, same season, same seiyuu, whatever.

When at least the two shows have a genre in common. Obviously you're not going to compare Hellsing Ultimate to something like Toradora or Nisekoi because their genres couldn't be more opposite. There are some general stuff to compare like character development, pacing of the story, etc. but those items have to be arranged to fit the type of show you're watching.

I've never heard of someone comparing anime based on their studios and/or year of release, that sounds ridiculous.

Only during the vernal equinox in a year divisible by 7.

Just kidding, whenever you want? Sometimes it's far more useful than other times.

I'd say really whenever you want to make a point by comparing what makes them different or similar. However, since I don't think one series can be inherently better than another, if you're not trying to make a specific point by comparing them, then it tends to feel like wasted words to me personally.

I want to know which is better, School Days or The Ultimate Teacher?
Better yet, Oreshura or The Rose of Versailles?
