My taste in anime and manga varies. I watch almost anything, be it mecha, action, romance, horror (a bit), supernatural or even yaoi/yuri, though that doesn't mean I will finish everything I watch. I naturally steer clear of hentai of any kind because those things don't offer much in term of story depth imo.
For manga, the first thing that will attract me and draw me to read it is the art, of course. I might even say I'll refuse to read something if the art is not to my taste. I mean, that's natural, isn't it?
As for how I rate things... well, they're scored mainly from the enjoyment value. If I enjoy watching a certain series even though everyone's saying it's shit... well, I'll still give it a high score. It's not like it affects anything after all. So don't come hounding on me about how I rate something GuiltyCrownAldnoahZero higher than certain others.
rah-rah said: I like how every time we have a thread saying that a random eroge that no one here has played is getting animated no one complains but when a BL manga or something gets it, it's all torches and pitchforks. I'm not saying you have to like it or anything, but at least be fair and someone equal oppertunity.
