Aye. I agree, but people should know the difference between Anime and Cartoon (American/Canadian Cartoons) just so people would know what we are talking about...

I have no favored genre, but I really dislike harems. And I'm not a fan of slice of life either.

i guess i'm biased for romance type anime, they can be corny, and sometimes the story is maybe even bad, but most of the time i can't help but enjoy it

I'm biased for slice of life anime, usually with drama. Also any epic action ones, good story lines above all (ex. Gungrave)

I'm quite biased against Mecha as far as choosing what to watch, but strangely enough, every mecha I've seen I've enjoyed if mecha isn't the entire focus. (ex. Vandread)

I like mostly all genres, the one's I'm biased for are those that mix genres well.
I don't really like harems though.

I might've already posted here but I'm not sure so ^^;.

Thanks De-Jay for my claim picture : ).

I am biased towards any show that has romance and comedy in it. (Fortunately for me a lot of the genre have those elements within them.) I am biased against most mech anime, war based, and horror/psychological horror. There are exceptions to the rule but I follow my biased against more than my biased towards.

If we got 80% or higher let me know! :)

I'm biased for hentai of course. Hentai is essence of anime, no one can argue with that.

Nah, I'm rather 'open-minded' so I can watch anything as long as it's grasping at least small amount of my attention.

Really I only go for series that are shounen, action, adventure, fantasy, sci-fi, mecha, drama, mystery, or some comedy.

The only times I'll watch something romance, shoujo, or anything else related is if it ties in with the above genres. Basically, I only like shows that involve action.

Well they may not be a genre, but I like any story that is psychological, or a story with time travel..
And I don't think I am against any kind of anime, maybe anime directed toward kids..whatever..

Im biased against mecha.. i dont enjoy it in any way x__x Just not into those huge robots :P Im pretty biased against harem, too, especially if it doesnt have a good plot and is very predictable.. I also avoid most adventurish shounen.. depending on what it's based on.

I've never been a shoujo fan. Just don't like it.

...But then I figured out it wasn't a shoujo issue, it was an issue with that fluffy/real-lifey kind. I actually really love that violent, epic, fantastical kind of shoujo. (like X, Angel Sanctuary, etc.)

Also, I just don't watch sports anime. I don't watch real people play sports, so why watch a sports cartoon?

As for what I'm biased towards, sci-fi, I guess, just like with all forms of media. And if I hear there's mindfucks in a series, I'm there.

Bloody rocket. I regrets it.

I typically am against loli-ish shows since I kind of prefer more mature styled animation and art designs, if that makes sense. I also have yet to really find a worthwhile shoujo and slice of life show that really stood out.

I also do shrug away stuff that gets labeled as shounen's, unless the series is on the shorter side of things ... for a shounen. I'd say ~50 episodes and under. I just don't have the effort to keep up with such long shows I guess.

So, maybe I'm a bit biased towards darker, more mature titles. I also have no problem admitting the fact that I'm a huge sci-fi fan, whether it's space adventure like, or cyberpunk, I really enjoy this stuff. Recently it seems like space drama's are becoming one of my top favorite genres, though they're a bit hard to come by.

Also can't ever go wrong with good action/comedies. I like some mecha too, though strangely enough I've never really had interest in the Gundam stuff out there.

I'm subjective towards Mecha, Sci-fi opera, fantasy, and historical fiction.

Currently I try to stay away from the mahou shoujo and harem anime. Ive seen some in the past, but I don't really have an affinity for the genres anymore.

So yeah, what genre or type of anime are you more likely to like regardless of whether it is actually good or not? And vice versa. Example, you like romantic comedies, harem shows or you are just biased against anything to do with mecha.

I like to say I can watch anything but I think I'm biased against comedies in general. I can watch and enjoy things that have a mix of comedy and drama, like Ouran, One Piece and etc. but not random shows that focus almost completely on the comedic aspect (like Azumanga Daioh). I'm the type of person who likes watching drama (even if a number of people can't see the reason for liking a bunch of emos and angsty teens whine and cry about stuff, haha).


That's me in a nutshell.

I can watch anything as long as it's not like Azumanga Daioh
And I really like drama, especially in combination with romance.

I usually need Drama in order to really like an Anime, or else I find it boring :X

I am not really biased against any type of anime, but I am slightly turned away by shows with a very slow developing plot or unresolved conflict.

So long as the plot is original and interesting enough to keep me watching through an entire episode I am fine...

This would take forever if I went into to detail. I guess shoujo: I know I'd enjoy some but I don't want to "Disgrace" myself by watching it. Yeah I'm a sexist bastard unfortunately.

for: slice of life, romance, comedy, drama
against: horror, most psychological, anything with lots of blood or pointless melodrama

though honestly if the story is well told and it doesn't have excessive blood or protracted conversations about the meaning of life in it then i'll probably like it.

I'm definitely biased in favor of hentai/ecchi anime and anything with lots of fanservice.

I suppose I'm against slice of life to an extent, but if it fits into the above then it's fine.

I'm biased for anime that has kind of deeper meaning, especially if it's not obvious.
I'm biased against watching mecha, even though I enjoyed most mecha I watched.

Anything with stupid crazy humor like FLCL, Futakoi Alternative, Excel Saga, etc is a huge no watch for me. Also boring slice-of-life, horror/heavy violence, and (sometimes) heavy historic anime can be a no watch.

I generally like shows with a plot, and I really like magical girl series overall (there are exceptions).

I'm completely biased for psychological anime. If it's something that can screw around with my mind a bit, I'll love it. Same for anything that can successfully pull off horror.

As for what I'm biased against, ecchi and hentai. Period. I just can't stand it. I also used to be biased against mecha, but not so much any longer.

Biased for school comedies/slice of life.

Biased against mecha in general, although I've come out of my hole to watch TTGL, Geass, and FMP. You'll catch me dead before even seeing me start a Gundam though.

I like bloody seinen action with horror elements and a very little amount of fan-service (as I grow older, all the unneeded pantyshots irritate me more and more)

Dislikes? I guess sport anime, generic shounen (except some classics), any anime with the word "pink" in the title, "magical girl"-series, some mecha, and all shoujo that follows this plot: "A shy high school girl becomes adored by a bishounen who is almost worshipped by every girl in the school"

hmn..
i really dont like......... mecha ( still i watched fmp and tengen toppa gurren lagann and will watch code geass.. still i guess i dislike it ^^ )

hmn.. then sports... ( i really like sports but in anime? no way )
and .. romance is .. a no-go too ;< but still some romance like in Kenshin.. Busou Renkin etc.. is absolutely needed : ) and thats the only romance i like... so the romance should just be a side story..
as for me .. only-romance animes are way too boring.. -.-


i really love.... samurai.. action..fantasy..adventure etc etc

I like everything except those so called comedies which have no plot. Like a still story and then maybe the last to episodes have some lame twists in it. I'm talking about series like Azumanga Daioh and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, I mean they are funny as hell but it gets annoying after some while.

I'm against magical girl types kinda. The girls who have a weird wand or something and transform type stuff. After Sailor Moon, nothing looks the same. :(

Also for SOME mecha if it's not all about mecha wars in every episode. I try to tolerate it for the story.

Yeah, I used to avoid mecha until I watched Bokurano and Code Geass. That doesn't mean I love other mecha/want to watch them though. I just don't hate them as much. ^_^
