Yes, I am picky, but not overly so.
I base some of my preference on opening and ending songs, as they are indicative of investment and audience sometimes.
There's a lot of anime out there, so saying you're picky, but just because of a favorite genre probably isn't too limiting.

I always give every anime 2 episodes before I make my decision.

Of course, too much anime, too little time, can't watch them all even I wanted too so I must be selective. Usually I give each show a try for about 2-4 episodes and if it doesn't hook me, I drop it. Typically, I only stick between 3-5 snows throughout their entirety each anime season.

Like many others... I have no particular Genre... but for the most part if the first few episodes are dull I chalk it up as a loss. Also I find I like shows that are a bit more witty, though the longer shows (CBZ, Naruto, HunterX Hunter) i just find irritating and mind numbing. I cant seem to place it but it just feels like if it has 100+ episodes I dont even want to attempt it because they always seem... idk how to put it.. low rent? However take that with a grain of salt I enjoyed SAO and have no issues with Mecha anime(Go figure).

For instance here is what I have watched and ratings I gave accordingly!

Definitely, I only start watching the anime that pick my interest (around five per season or maybe less) and I'm quick to drop the ones I don't like. There are also certain genres that I tend to avoid.

Nope.

If the art style looks pretty, then I'll give it a shot.

No iam not. Never really have been.
I get a bit sick of harem ones but i watch all kinds.
Many people that i know only like the more serious ones or the more darker violent ones. Like ninja ones or ones that aren't too cute or girly or lovey or pervy.
I like all kinds. Iam hapy to watch funny romantic and silly whacky ones and pervy ones.

I mean I will start a lot of series, but maybe only end up finishing about 1/3-1/2 of them.

Yes! It has to be good

The style has to be nice -slightly realistic, no huge eyes or boobs (gets annoying)

No moe (unless if it's like nichijou)

Very little to no fan service (gets annoying)

Nothing NSFW ish or harems

I've never seen an Idol show and NEVER will

GREAT STORY and DEFINITELY NOT just girls lookin cute

Voice acting? It can get annoying if a character has a cutesy voice. But it may not really matter since I'll just put on subtitles

The only way I'm really selective is by art. Detective Conan is out because the eyes are too far set apart so the characters look like mutants to me, for example.
On genre, I usually just grow into the genre, discovering it's worth.
With the quality of an anime, I just go for the storyline. I am really good at connecting points in a storyline when it is all choppy too, so I actually got something out of Bloodivores.
I only get pissed off if something like a time paradox happens in a story, like a big event happening one episode and the next the story carries on like it was before the big event (and the big event never happened although it obviously did, you know?) or if the subtitles change too quickly or something (I can usually get an idea of what they are saying but if the person is speaking in chinese or if the subtitles are off by 5 sentences...).

Oh, and I am picky on dubs. Who wants to hear a kid voice a 17 year old or vice versa? It just feels creepy and so non-realistic. I am also creeped out by someone who sounds like a 50 year old man voicing a 17 year old character. I like to get the feel of a character, and I know someone with a very deep voice so I know the difference between a good deep sound for an age and stuff... This part may not make much sense to you because I have invisible kitty ears (It feels like I have phantom cat ears on my head and that psychological feeling enhances my hearing.)... Meow!
