    Prerequisites For Watching an Anime?

    Haha... I really like to watch anime with gread art style and great animation. But those two are usually my second priority... I like stories with great plots too... But if the drawing sucks, I don't tend to finish the anime at all...

    That's probably the reason why I like Samurai X, Kare Kano, Kiddy grade, The Gundam Collections (Except for the animated gundam with the tiny gundams and Shute... The art style sucks!!!), etc...; also it would seem to be the reason why I hate Dragon Ball, Cheeky Angel, etc...
    i'll choose to love whoever i wish to love and nobody can stop me from doing so ----

    Re: Prerequisites For Watching an Anime?

    ok for me
    1st: Good Plot
    2nd: how could you forget the "sounds effect and music element" .. there's animes i was attached too just because of their music
    3rd:Great Animation
    an anime missing one of those is an anime i'd usually not watch except for the case when one of the elements is way too great compared to other animes to cover the missing one (Ah! My Goddess ,D.N.Angel)
    Examples of what i think that includes the three essential elements to me:
    The Vision Of Escaflowne ,Chrno Crusade ,Full Metal Alchemist ,Trigun ,Air Gear .. and there's a lot more but not too many
    Life and Death are always one and the same
    EVEN IF A RAINBOW IS BROKEN THERE'S STILL THE SKY

    Let me try...

    1st: gory deaths
    2nd: boobs
    3rd: gay people
    4th: an antihero

    well crap... now all I can watch is Gantz ~_~;

    I'd better not have standards at all.

    I would say;
    1. Some hentai fan-service
    2. Lots of blood and dismembering of human flesh
    3. Hot looking chicks

    An anime show with those characteristics described above sounds ideal to me, though i don't really care what kida plot or story line a show has as long as i like the show it is fine with me.

    I agree with you ... the most three important things in anime that controls the quality of the anime are : the plot, the sound effects, and the graphic art ...
    Timing Is Everything ...

    1.Dark plots
    2.quirky characters
    3.pretty pretty animation like Gantkusuou (sp? can't remember)
    4.soundtracks (anything Yoko Kanno or the lady who did Noir)
    5.Non repetitive episodes (ok sailor moon is my guilty pleasure on that)

    If gonzo made/produced/whatever it then chances are i'll watch it

    Re: Prerequisites For Watching an Anime?

    1. I'm pretty easy, but I do think the first thing I notice is the name (if its in English, and sometimes if it sounds really cool in Japanese).
    2. It has to make it beyond 5 mins or so mark. Meaning if in the first 5mins its too silly or goofy, I stop watching it...usually.
    3. Sometimes just sometimes it'll make it pass the first episode if the opening song/animation is really cool.
    4. It doesnt always matter, but if the animation is noticeably more detailed, i know i'll probably like it.

    I know these dont really sound much like prerequisites, but like I said, I'm easy. It's not what makes me start watching it that matters, but what makes me keep watching it...lol
