I have about 20 favorites at the moment. I feel that all of them are the best I've seen from each genre and therefore it's easy to decide that they're my favorites.

How do you decide whether something goes into your group of favorites?

Apparently I have 12 right now. My favourites are series that I enjoyed immensely (obviously). Quality isn't my principal concern, but I tend to not enjoy bad anime in the first place...

According to my MAL graph, I have about 20 in the 9-10 range.

The ones that truly leave an impression on me, gave me some food for thought, felt unique, had a great sense of mystery and/or drama.

Just this once, I'll fulfill whatever your wish is.

Pretty much this.
Don't bother if you don't know how special effects were done without computers.

I guess around 5, and it will remain around that number.
The forums are dark, and full of ego.

Somewhere around 50.

Although I could reduce this to 7, and even further to just 2.

Probably about 100, from many different genres, a couple from 7s, like 20 or 30 from my 8s, and then the rest from my 9s and 10s. Though not all my 9s are my favorites.

They're anime that had an effect on me, that's basically it.

Probably 14, more or less. Also, just because I rated something a 9, it doesn't mean it's one of my favourites. My favourites are all based on enjoyability and leaves a lasting impression.

I have only one true favorite,Bleach,those who are near,near being a big word let's say alternative,to it can be called "favorite" but I will never choose my "favorite" above my favorite,if you get what I mean.That's why is called favorite,it meant to be just one.If you have more than one it means either you're not decided or those are alternatives to your favorite,if it ends,obviously you'll find an anime next to your favorite to watch.That,or you just dont plan to have a fidelity towards no anime and seek an anime that entertains you even more and when you find it,you replace the previous one.

About 10-15. It'll increase with more exposure I'm sure of it.

If you had a lot of favorites then it wouldn't really be a favorite
Just because you know how to use a torrent does not give you the god given right to pirate.

Somewhere around 100, all my 10's and most of my 9's.

Between 20 and 30 I think. I'm not too picky on what I would consider a favourite.

Please,stop mutilate the word "favorite".Favorite means you'll give a special attention and place among other animes.You cant do that with even 2.You cant call favorite more than one anime.

That's why the OP worded the title as "a favorite" and not "the favorite".

As for me, well, any of my 10s. Which makes 30 or so I think.

Anything more or less than a "top ten" is un-American.

Somewhere between 15-25 for a round number, but about 17 of them I can say for sure are strong favorites. The favorites themselves range between the 7-10 rating on my list.

I have a top 10. The concept of top 10 lists are extremely common, so I tend to stick to that idea.

I'd say 5, which works well for this site. I only had 3 when I signed up, so I'm not exactly filling in the spaces for the sake of it.

I guess realistically speaking it is not a large number, which has further diminished over the years. It would have to be something I go fanboy over: meaning listen to its ost, rewatch it, browse artbooks, read manga or other versions of it, buy merchandise, obsess over the characters and so on. There are indeed more than one that meet the qualifications, but those that reach the highest caliber probably amount to 5 at most.

Aha, I see. Yeah, I guess I'd only have about 5-7 If I used that defenition of favorite.

This poll's a little arbitrary, I mean I may be able to vote 20+ now but what if I come back in a year and that changes to 30+?

I have about 50 favourites, I tend to be fairly picky on what I consider to be favourite but the show needs to leave a personal impression on me in one way or another. However I could name an extra 50 or so that would qualify as getting close to my top 50. So basically anything that rated an 8 or higher on my List.

~10 shows I loved and ~10 shows I consider a masterpiece.
Though there are only 3 that's written on stone.

True, especially for me since I've only seen like 17.5 days worth of anime.

If I rated it a 8, then it goes under my favorites, although I wish you could use more then full numbers for ratings, i'd rate some anime 7.5, 5.5 etc
