Yeah, it's different for every person.

But I think, there tend to be anime that are really loved and worshipped by some people, and really hated by others; and then there are ones that most people are sort of indifferent to and forget about, but some people really love them because they happen to fit that person's taste the right way.

. . . . . and then there are the ones that people who want to look cool or "intellectual" or nihilist or whatever tend to like, and then when they notice how popular the show is, they disown it because it's only cool if most people hate it... but then when enough people have rejected it, it's suddenly okay to "discover" it again. (e.g. Evangelion). Not that that means these series don't have merits, this is just one particular type of (obnoxious know-it-all) fans that certain series tend to attract for reasons that have almost nothing to do with their actual quality.

It's all about how much I enjoy it, that's how I define a "good anime". If I liked it enough that I am willing to watch it over again, then that is in my opinion the best shows.

What makes a show, movie ,play etc ...poor ,marginal, good or very good or excellent .... its the writting and then the adaptation.

What makes it bad, is the content depending on ones values but on the other it maybe a very good show.

I believe evaluating whether something is "strong" or "weak, is a better empirical observation. A good/bad show would therefore reflect on its strength as an anime; the ability to command honor/respect from whom who observe it so.

Depends on the originality of the plot and pace of the story.
Don't get me wrong, there are cliche stories that still inclines you to watch or read further.
But usually, I prefer if it has a good sense of plot for you to invest your time in.

And that's how I decide if it's a good anime or not.

My opinion only.

If it has CGI it's horrid. I don't even think they can even class it as "anime" if it's CGI .. but they still do. It's lazy and weak. Down with CGI.

Watch "Last Exile" (on FUNimation) and you will think twice before spewing such Blasphemy, it is so...

Things that make an anime bad for me personally a cheesy romantic sub-plot, too many plot holes, flat personalities, poor artwork/animation. Also, nothing sours an anime/manga for me like a bad ending, I had anime/manga that I absolutely loved that just seemed to fall apart near the end like a bad break up.

It's harder to define what makes an anime good as I like a lot of anime and they're all widely different, but if you have at least a few likeable characters, the animation quality is good enough, and the plot is somewhat original, I won't say it's good, but you at least have a chance with me. You don't have to reinvent the wheel, but at least put some nice rims on it.
