    What do you like to see most in anime?

    Action? Hot chick? Cool guy? Gun/weapons battle? Martial arts? Funny things that can make you laugh every time you think about it? Interesting storyline that makes you want to see the next episode as soon as one ends? etc.

    What do you look for in anime? Which one do you prefer the most?


    Personally, I like actions and funny stuff, as well as good storyline. I would take interesting story over anything else though.

    RE: What do you like to see most in anime?

    I like to see character development and the plot of the story get more complex. I like action, but I feel that too much action and not enough story ruins an anime. I talked more in depth about it in the "Do You Prefer Short Or Long Anime Series" Topic but if you give me a series that makes me think while watching as well as entertaining me with fight scenes here and there to break up the monotony then that makes me a happy boy.

    RE: What do you like to see most in anime?

    I personally like a bit of everything to an extent but... if I was to pinpoint something more specific that'll really drive me to watch a whole series... I'll have to put it down to 2 things:

    A compelling story, usually involving some sort of drama or romance like in Angel Beats or gets me really thinking about what's going to happen like in Code Geass

    On the other hand, I also cant say no to edge-of-your-seat excitement and action like in Gurren Lagann.

    Side note: I both love and hate it whan an anime like Code Geass will end a series on a cliffhanger...

    RE: What do you like to see most in anime?

    I'm just very picky with what I look for in Anime these days, because it's gotta meet the following criteria:

    1. An interesting and compelling story that doesn't drag itself out. This is why I can't do series like Bleach and Naruto, with all their different arcs that either become awkward to the series or they're just trying to milk every single bit out of a series as much as possible.

    2. Animation detail! most anime these days look so digital and almost half-assed these days- Outlaw Star had some great detail, especially some other Anime in the 1990's, such as Berserk, Serial Experiments Lain, The Heroic Legend of Arislan, etc. Perhaps it was the hand-drawn aspect I miss so much in anime these days. But, I do see some exceptions, in series like Hellsing, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Black Lagoon.

    3. I prefer gritty, intense action anime like all the action anime we know and love, but that doesn't mean I won't take a gander at some anime with really unique themes and ambiances, ranging from dreams to cyberpunk. Good Comedy Anime is rare, unfortunately. Golden Boy and Excel Saga have taken the trophies for that category in the 90's.

    RE: What do you like to see most in anime?

    Remember Somasol Excel Saga was digitally drawn, Hyatt herself pointed that out on one episode. In Outlaw Star there were certain episodes that you can tell there was a different drawing style especially in Maze of Despair. I'm like you too I'm picky about the anime I watch now. I high school I just watched about anything with action and fan-service. Fan-service can only go so far and usually in small doses. Nowadays, I'm watching Macross Frontier and Nadia: SOBW lately.

    RE: What do you like to see most in anime?

    to be completely honest i can watch more or less any anime as long as it's not hentai.

    but for certain criteria, if the anime has a good soundtrack, or if it can tell a good story, i'll be more likely to buy it for my collection.

    RE: What do you like to see most in anime?

    Well, the only anime I've finished is Outlaw Star..

    That being said, I loved the story and how it kept me coming back for more ( Even to this day. ). The characters are amazing! They ''grew'' in the story, becoming more than what they previously were. I like how it was animated too! It wasn't too graphic to where it was just ''too much''. ( By too much I mean in some animes where if someone gets injured: a ocean of blood pours from the wound. It's like ''honestly, they had 400 liters of blood inside them and they lost all of by a paper-cut?'' ) It was done perfectly! :3 I tried to watch a few other anime, but I lost interest quickly.

    Oh yeah, good one. You reminded me how good soundtrack can also keep me interested too. No wonder many anime creators spent a lot of energy to create or select cool soundtrack.

    RE: What do you like to see most in anime?

    Hmmmm... How to say this. Kind of a broad answer but I like to see epic scenes. The ones that are so awesome that it actually gives you the chills just watching it.

    This was one of those scenes for me (Majin you will like this haha)
    http://youtu.be/y-WenmU5NEc?t=17m56s

    There were a lot of those for me from macross frontier as well; here's one of many:

    And yes even from pokemon:

    (21:31:56) TheMachetejoe: Nope! I'm as stealthy as a mouse...on bear adrenaline."
    "(18:42:32) Hannah: I like to giggle when I sit in chairs."
    "(19:46:20) lloydSSJ4: I was contemplating my similarities with Fred Luo, while making a sandwhich."
