    Yeah, just want your own opinions on this cuz I was bored. >D
    There's a difference between doin' what you love and loving what you do.

    well in my opinion...

    a. depends on the genre you're into
    :: some people say <insert anime here> is good, but some doesn't because they don't like <insert genre here> type of anime

    b. character design
    :: it's a big big big factor for me. if the characters look crappy and stupid, i'd rather lie down and read newspapers than watching crap like that. well... just an opinion anyway o_O

    c. story board
    :: no matter how random an anime is, surely it should have a good story and lessons, eh? a slice of life wouldn't hurt.

    d. FUN
    :: also a big big big factor for me. i like anime that make me laugh, make me in awe from the action, make me think really really hard on how this or that happened. but i think the word "FUN" itself is self-explanatory for each and everyone of us

    how about you guys?

    I think that an anime is good if you anticipate seeing the next episode.

    For example, I watched School Days from start to finish in one day. And that brings up my second point.

    If you remember it a month later and think back, "Man, <insert title here> was pretty good."

    Finally, that leads to the final one: If you watch it again, you still enjoy it.

    The Nodame series's are a prefect example of all the right stuff in one place. Good writting, good production, excelent character development, good musical scores and finally coordination of all the elements by an excellent director.

    I basically judge an anime from the storyline, cuteness [haha], and most especially- the artistic effort put into the drawing.

    if its interesting. it depends on whoevers watching really. we all have our opinions and sometimes they differ. if it gets a lot of attention then its good.

    not sure but isnt there a thread similar to this. coz i remember giving a reply to a similar thread ^^

    has plot, relatively characters appearance to their role (you never know rich char. is a gangster never thought of that), no fillers(bleach bleh keep on adding why not end it already), no omitted scenes, hmmm h-scene maybe to eliminate boring scenes time to time... thats all in my mind
    heres one to end it...

    Story must be grabbing.

    Characters must be tolerable and interesting.

    Animation is a lower one on the list here, because if an anime is drawn by a ten year old, I'd still watch it if it was hilarious and interesting.

    Most other aspects to what makes an anime "good" is entirely up to the tastes of the viewer. For example: I find the idea of mech animes to be terribly boring. Don't ask me why, I just do. Also, I find that too many fanservice/panty shots is too much of a distraction from what's happening in the anime. You will probably soon find out that a lot of people disagree with me on BOTH of those.

    Words from the god of manga (can also be applied to anime):

    1.) IMPACT!!! EXXAGERATIONS LIKE THIS *falls down and makes head bleed* AND THIS *Kills himself*

    2.) SEX APPEAL!!! YOU MUST KNOW THAT THERE SHOULD BE A CHARACTER THAT SUSTAIN ONE FAN'S PHYSICAL WANTS!!!

    3.) YOU MUST LOVE MANGA (ANIME) MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE!!!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    That was a good guy. Well, from my history of anime...

    Action
    -LESS TALKY MORE WALKY

    Adventure
    -Protagonist must be stupid and cool at the same time

    Romance/Ecchi/Harem
    MY FAVORITE!!!

    Must have the following...

    1.) Love confused protagonist. Not necessarily a pervert but... you know what I'm talking about. Those guys who'll nosebleed, faint or throw up in looking at an ecchi girl. And we'd do anything to be in his place.

    2.) More ecchi less drama

    3.) Must have at least 3 girls with the following

    3.a) Pink/orange/brown haired girl, mostly pink. Or name is related to Sakura. Or foreign half girl. Will obviously end up with the protagonist

    3.b) Loli girl. Undeveloped teen girl who just cast off flames of MOE. Likes the protagonist but will cry in the end.

    3.c) Big girl. Overlydeveloped (yes we're talking about chests) teen girl who gives you a cocktease. Hates the protagonist but will eventually like him.
