-Mr. Generic Anime Man and his generic tsundere love interest.

-Tasteless or lazy fanservice; SHAFT know how to do it right.

-When you can see the stretch marks on the plot from it being forced to span a fixed 12 episodes or so.

->It's a revenge story

-Offensively bad or jarring CG; I understand it's for economical reasons but there are limits to what looks acceptable.

-It's an adventure but the plot is non-existant.


->It's a filler episode

-"We're not so different, you and I."


-Weird, off the beaten path visuals or art style that distinguish it from the generic anime.

-Appealing character designs.

-I don't find myself waiting for each episode to end.

-The story manages to be weird without being incomprehensible or pretentious.

-It's fun.

-GOAT tier animation

-Good OP/EDs aren't necessary but they are a nice bonus.

-I feel like I got something out of it.

There's a number of tropes in shounen I think I'd dislike but I haven't actually watched any so I didn't put them here.

My loved anime traits
- Well developed shows that knows the opening and ending points, without going over-the-top all over the place
- Strong, appealing characters that acknowledges its strengths and weaknesses
- Outstanding music soundtracks that is not overly catchy but easily remembered
- Dialogue between the characters and narrative that fits in with the story
- A good mix of both genders included
- Good shipping routes

My liked anime traits
- Battles that don't last longer than half the entire episode, and no battle can start too soon after the last one
- High-quality images with consistent FPS, as long as it is not under 30 or above 120
- A healthy amount of romance that doesn't span through more than half of an entire show
- Diversity in conversations
- Short monologues
- Awkward moments that cause a good laugh for a while

My disliked anime traits
- Excessive gore, whole screen turns red or black too frequently and suddenly, fancy visuals that can blind the viewer easily, hard to see characters through saturated or darkened backgrounds
- Shows that don't have a proper path on where it is supposed to go next (inconsistency), or just made to tick off more of their own audience than it supposedly wants to achieve
- Cameo characters that don't fit with the time period of the anime
- Generic looks or visuals that is choppy/messed up
- One-sided romances where one character is always dominant and the other always submissive
- Frequent fourth-wall breaking
My hated anime traits
- Unexpected mature scenes in non-mature shows
- Characters that frequently dislike one another without reason
- Bad shipping routes for no reason
- Bad endings
- Long monologues or meaningless stuff
- Resurrection of characters that died too frequently only to come back in the next scene/episode/season
- Battle after battle the characters have to go through without stopping to take a break
- Stereotypes that don't break
- Includes highly controversial themes that are so offensive it attracts a lot of negative reactions
- One-sided gender or species that is too powerful over the other
- Overpowered attacks
