“Good taste” and “bad taste” seem to be loosely thrown around a lot these days, but what really defines good taste in your opinion? Is it about having very similar anime titles in your all-time favorites? Is it perhaps about having very similar preferences when it comes to genres/themes/demographic in general? Or is it about having very similar scores with each other’s anime list? Or something else?

Bonus question: Can “incredibly diverse taste” still be called “good taste?” (basically when someone’s all-time favorite anime consist of a bunch of distinctly different eras/genres/themes; liking a bit of everything, from some mainstream battle shounen, to deep/sophisticated anime, and some SoL, shoujo, etc.)

If good tastes was a matter of opinions there would be no need to have a board of committee come together in a meeting to discuss if a manga should be made into an anime, an editor to polish an author's work & give feedback, and obviously there would be on one relying on the good ol "we all have different opinions" like it's a crutch when someone nitpick on someone else's favorite anime.(Power of friendship in fairy tail, world building inconsistencies in SAO) Good tastes is definitely the literary skills in being able to discern the technical factors of what makes a show a show and the flaws that come with it.

Of course good tastes don't necessarily encompass popular anime as popularity can be a result of multiple factors. Death note's simple premise & brilliant plot moments, harem king Kirito being the quintessential desire(Good at games, actually has friends, surrounded by girls who simp for him, even has a girlfriend.) of every lonely teen boy and possibly older out there, the long running One Piece which most of us grew up watching are all candidates for popularity due to it actually being good or just self gratification mastubatory material that many out there relate to.

Ultimately the main problem with defining good taste is because we allow anyone and everyone including the practically illiterate to voice their thoughts and understanding of the medium on the internet. Imagine if we simply allowed anyone and everyone to enact changes in governments or companies like we do on the internet, the world would be thrown into chaos.

If you just do what other people do without understanding their reasoning, then you don't have good taste. You have no taste at all, in fact. Whether it's good or bad shouldn't matter as much as the why you like or dislike something. That's why I don't judge people based on anime in their favorites alone. They may have comprehensible reasons for liking something based on their interests or experiences. I will always respect that more than someone spouting some unreasonable nonsense about a series, even if it's one I consider great myself.


Don't follow the trend. Be yourself and set the trend.

Go on a random watch. If it doesn't put you on a boring mode, it's definitely worth watching.
"bUt BUt, sHOw gEtS BeTTEr aFtEr fEw EPisOdEs" are the boring shows.

And what makes someone bore, varies person to person. So, everyone has their choice of good taste accordingly.

Requirements for a good taste in my opinion:

1) Having watched enough stuff from different eras/genres/themes to have a clear understanding of what you like and what you don't.
2) Not liking every highly rated anime. I do think that higher score = higher probability of being good, but I also think that this probability is never higher than 30-40%. If you think that 80-90% of the anime rated above 8.00 are great, I wouldn't call your taste bad, but rather "undefined".

Having a taste similar to mine is NOT a requirement. Having a very diverse taste is a plus.

Good taste can't ever be defined by, if someone likes a particular series then he has one but if someone doesn't then it's questionable, after all it's a thing which you can't just frame out in words. For me nobody's got a bad taste because there will be few things that they would have liked and I won't and I would've liked but they won't.

So screaming around that how can someone not like this critically acclaimed masterpiece of a series when everyone thinks so highly of it and be regarded as an outcast is utterly stupid.

Very Critic !!!! Do you find aspects of judging and mistakes while watching ? Or like, "I should rate this one 'this much', then I have to rate down few other shows, I have rated with similar number !".

It's subjective but for me it just means similar preferences.

Oh it sure can. "Diverse" is "diverse". "Good" is "good". It all depends on the person claiming to connect the two.

"Good taste" and "bad taste" are terms that get thrown around a lot for ego stroking lately. I of course will say that someone has "good taste" in anime just for acknowledging someone that has ratings and favorites similar to mine for the shows that I like. But if a person doesn't, I have nothing to say. Their taste in anime is just different from mine. I'm not going to hate on them for it or isolate them because of it.

This is hard since everyone has their own subjective points. I guess I fall under the "what types and how many anime have you watched?" type of person. I've seen about 70 unique anime series and they all have their ups and downs. I think I've seen more than enough anime to where I consider myself as just "ok taste". Also, I could care less if people actually watched one of my favorite anime's, but I do take great pride when people have seen some my favorites. "Good taste" honestly comes down to personal preference. If I were to add one more thing then being open-minded helps with that "good taste". You respect others opinions and share your own thoughts. Nothing is too serious, that type of stuff. How would you define it? Noticed you ask the question but didn't really give your opinion.

For sure having "diverse taste" means you have "good taste". People that have immersed themselves in anime for a long time (or have seen a lot) are probably (and hopefully) knowledgeable is what I would like to believe.

If I understood correctly yes, having to lower your own old scores is sometimes necessary when there's too much difference in terms of quality/enjoyment among anime within the same score.

"Good taste" implies being part of some social circle and how much your taste is compatible to the general idea what is considered good and what is considered bad in this circle.

And we all know how horrible, inconsistent, makeshift and temporary is the taste in the anime fandom.

For me, the term "good taste" doesn't exist. Everyone have their own taste and opinion, however, some users are more strict than others with the content of the anime that they are watching, which is my case. I'm a little perfectionist, you know.

Feel like it really depends on an individual's opinion and that there's not really a concrete way to determine 'good taste' or not. And I don't really see why it's such a big deal, who cares if someone has different opinions and likes different shows than you. I personally don't care for the magical girl genre, just not what I'm interested in, but I'm not going to say that people who like that genre have bad/trash taste.

And I also am of the opinion that liking a well-written show is not the same as having good taste. Being able to pick out good writing does not mean you'll actually enjoy it either, maybe you just like to watch trashy, bad-written shows because you find them fun. I don't really think it's that deep.

I would say that, while 90% of the time I'm willing to chalk things up to subjectivity, there are certain markers to me that I personally consider "bad taste". now, "good taste" is too subjective and considering how relatively few anime I've seen, in the grand scheme of things it makes no sense, however I can definitely say there's a few factors in having bad taste.

1. rating things that are popular high across the board and giving negative reviews to everything outside shonen action
2. 10/9s for only hentai and ecchi
3. high ratings almost universally for notorious "adult" but actually juvenile anime like Elfen Lied, Mirai Nikki, and Akame ga KIll. it's okay to like them, but I just don't think someone who is consistently drawn to those type of stories has interesting taste. They're just a teenage boy/girl, regardless of age.
4. people that think SAO is peak fiction
5. people that give universally bad reviews to shoujo/SOL/CGDCT anime, on the basis of macho bullshit reasoning. The nutty thing is that a huge, huge amount of the audience for all of these are male! There is no reason besides deep-seated insecurity to hate anything you perceive as feminine. also uh, if you're that insecure maybe there's a reason. Maybe you're worried you're not that masculine after all. Maybe...you're right, and maybe that's not a bad thing at all, but a sign of things you should really unpack with the help of a trained psychiatric professional. :)
6. giving Golden Kamuy a low rating. just incomprehensible. almost all of my favorites I understand hating them, but Golden Kamuy just has something for everyone. okay, CGI bears and stiff animation in the first season might knock it down to mid, I get that, but I genuinely do not comprehend hating the show.

Anything which is enjoyed by you and me is considered as good taste and anything which is enjoyed by me and not you is bad taste (ACCORDING TO MAL USERS), but this is probably the most dumbass logic as everyone enjoy different things and most of the time the logic behind good and bad taste is used to diss on people which just shows the elitist mentality aka smooth brain individuals.

That means you really aren't enjoying a show, you are more concerned about increasing number of completed show on your database and to show yourself as a critic by changing their ratings each time you find new show. Enjoyment lies in present time, you will only enjoy the show while watching. Down rating them seems pointless as enjoyment of past moment and present moment varies.

good taste imo is when a person has a similar taste/preference or agrees about certain things with somebody else, and then because of the similarity, they think the other person have a good taste because the other person think the same way as they are. in the end it doesn't entirely matter because of how subjective it is, same as with everyone's opinion about certain anime

I agree a formal committee thing could be useful. But just like IRL governments it can be flawed. Lack of term limits in congress perfect example.

Anyways.

Simple. IMO. Opinion. It comes down to perspective and variety. Simplest way to put it. Same with food, movies, a hobby.

Perspective: You've watched anime of various decades, tropes and time periods. Seen a little 70s anime and 2020s. You know a 00s anime trope and a 10s. Etc. So that when you you watch anime you can put it into perspective if it's good or not in contrast to what you've seen.

Perfect example is new anime fans who have seen few shounen and say JJK is good. Or in 2007 all you ever watched was Lucky Star and Haruhi and say its the best SoL. If you have perspective you asses it different. Thus "good taste".

Variety: Similar to above. Simple. You watch and have seen anime of various genres. And not just shounen vs seinen. You have seen some BL, GL(Yuri?), NBL, whatever. Sports, SoL, Romance...

Combine those two and you have no choice but to have "good taste".

In my opinion as a anime fan since the 00s. I feel I can speak on this.

If you have a good time, that's what matters in essence.

To define "good taste" is just like to view which side of coin have better look. Kinda hard to define it to be good when others might view it from different side. It's just too subjective and still debatable so kinda useless to try define it when definition of good is so broad.

Enjoyment lies in present time, you will only enjoy the show while watching. Down rating them seems pointless as enjoyment of past moment and present moment varies.

You're totally wrong: I don't care about being a critic or any of the stuff you said. What I want from my list and my scores is to express my taste as accurately as possible; the more I watch, the more I need to use the full rating system and not just 7-10 as I did when I was a newcomer.

Down rating doesn't mean denying my enjoyment, but rather assigning a higher value of enjoyment to a lower score (e.g. two years ago I would have said that 6=bad, now 6=I like it). In any case, I'd never rate 4 or less something I enjoyed, since I like to stick with MAL's definition of 4=bad.

Let me make an example. I watch a new anime and find it amazing; I think about rating it 10, but it's not really on par with the other 10s, so it becomes a "high 9". Repeat this a bunch of times, and the "high 9s" will become more than "mid 9s" and "low 9". At this point, it would be more accurate to set a new standard for a 9, so that the high 9s will become mid, the mid become low, and the low 9s will become high 8s; and so on.

So if all you ate your whole life was fruit. And can give a whole dissertation on why fruit is good, do you have good taste in "Food"?

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But to say that person has good taste in "food" because they believe they have good taste; despite only eating fruit is wrong.

My point is, to say you have good taste in anything in general you need to sample and be familiar with various things from it. Perspective.

If all you watch is 10s Isekai you cant have good taste in "anime" as a whole. It's impossible, you haven't seen anything else. Just like a person who only eats fruit cant say they have good taste in "food". Maybe in fruit, sure!

People define good and bad taste by just comparing someone's taste to their own. That's fundamentally a subjective thing cause you're comparing one personalized set of preferences and beliefs to another, different set, and therefore anyone's taste will have thousands of different opinions on it throughout the quality spectrum. Bearing that in mind, I think the concept of good and bad taste is something so personal for everyone that it ultimately becomes meaningless. I might think you have "good" taste and someone else might think you have "bad" taste. Who's the more legitimate one here? Neither; we're both stupid. So yeah, I don't believe in the concept of taste being good or bad.

I might think you have "good" taste and someone else might think you have "bad" taste. Who's the more legitimate one here? Neither; we're both stupid. So yeah, I don't believe in the concept of taste being good or bad.


Yeah well there's a school in philosophy that kinda goes if everything is subjective then nothing at all matters. When you break it down that far of course. IS anything good? Is good good? Thats too far imo and beside the point.

The question was what is good taste in "anime". Not "What is good taste?".

It's very simple. When you hire judges for the supreme court they want what? Experience. Because experience is perspective which is also variety.

When food judges are hired for competitions they want what? Experience. Because experience is perspective which is also variety.

"Good taste" is almost most things in the world is based off exposure and experience.

But whenever art is involved it's "naaaah brah its about what you want it to mean brah everything is subjective *takes a hit*"

And I get that. But to have good taste in anything as a **whole** . You need experience and variety. Period. Nothing wrong with thinking To Love Ru is god tier and you have good taste. But to say you have good taste in anime period is impossible if all you've seen is To Love Ru.

Nothing subjective about that at all.
