    For me, obviously, i watch anime because of the plot...if it's good or if it catches my attention then imma watch it. It really depends on the person if they just want to watch the anime base on their looks. It's a plus if the plot is great with the characters having great looks too, of course we want to watch that. I tried to watch an anime just base on looks ONCE...and gosh, i totally don't understand the whole story that i didn't continue it (btw i forgot the title of the anime xD).

    A great anime comes with a great plot! Right? :D
    I'm tired of living in this lonely reality....please take me to the fantasy world where I will be happy!

    I primarily watch anime for the plot rather than the characters. I consider it a bonus if a show I like has characters that I also like. It doesn't bother me too much if a show doesn't have any characters that I can relate to so long as the plot is worthwhile. As long I don't viscerally dislike the characters then all is good.

    Having said that, I have been totally turned off from a show if the characters are downright terrible. Charlotte is one such example. I absolutely, positively could not stand the main character (or even the side characters, now that I think about it) so I couldn't make it through the show. Such shows are few and far between though (thankfully).

    i tend to watch anime for the story plot at first if it is interesting i continue watching it and then happen to like a character so sometimes it is both but mainly story plot.

    I watch because of the story and characters. Character development and plot twists are the things I'm craving for.

    I like ANIME for everything it is!! the plot, character design, and the art style.

    As a writer, both are equally important. When it comes to anime, both play a factor if I will enjoy the anime. Good characters make for a good story; usually you can't have one without the other. I will say there are characters I don't like but I will continue watching to find out what happens; if I don't enjoy the story though, I won't watch the anime.

    Same here. Aside from the plot, it really matters to me on how the plot line is delivered. No matter how great the plot is, if it's poorly executed and bores me, I don't continue the anime until some time later.

    Mostly because of the plot, but hopefully a good series has both great characters and good plot.


    It's the same when I play Visual Novels, I don't really get "charages" because they're often just boring slice of life. It's difficult to show character depth without an engaging plot.

    Both! True, the plot remains essential in all cases, but sometimes the chara-design intrigues me and it can always prove to be interesting.

    I watch anime .. probably because of their character, and second is the story plot. But most of my priority from watching anime is the story behind those character...

    i normally care for the plots, but the lolis just kept me from leaving the anime,
    Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.

    Definitely about the story at first. If the characters become appealing, hey it adds to the experience. But if they aren't then you got a nice story to enjoy.

    I think its a little of both. Sometimes I want to see something with a good story, whereas other times I just want to watch a show with funny or interesting characters with minimal plot. My favorite anime usually excel in both plot and characters though.

    You'd love the characters once you get to watch the anime.

    I watch anime because of the genre's it has and if it has one of the genre i like that's a plus to watch it, also the art and animation is also a factor for me and I will also base on the story plot to determine if it's worth watching, cause some anime is all ecchi and no story. Why do I even bother with ecchi? e-e

    Ughh anyways artstyle and story plot are factors for me to continue watching an anime.
    If it's interesting then I'd watch it, but if its just fan service all the way definitely crossing it out. Lmao.
