The Method Behind the Madness:
I won't lie. I'm a sucker for epic stories and anything with deep character involvement. This can range anywhere from climactic battle sequences to subtle emotional events. I prefer characters that are flawed and can cover a range of emotions and traits. I hate characters that are arbitrary, too predictable, too idyllic or just all over the place. The more dynamic, yet consistent, the character, the better. I prefer stories with strong central plots, and am usually drawn to more serious or darker work. I try to appreciate shows for what they are.
If a show just wants to dazzle me with mindless violence and cool effects, that's fine. Playful humor and good natured amusement work too. I don't mind shows that use CGI. However, I personally hate shows that are excessively goofy and random and/or go nowhere. If a show doesn't have some kind of point or is trying to say something I don't really get anything out of it. I like to have my mind challenged, my imagination ignited and/or my emotions stirred. Any show that can pull off some combination of these is usually a win.
As much as I love anime, I do hate some of the cliches. Anime can delight me to great heights; inspiring me with its beauty and impressing me with its innovations. It can also reach lows that bewilder me with staggering stupidity and mind numbing nonsense. So, it's a very tricky relationship fraught with ups and downs. Then again, I could say the same about my relationships with women, so what the hell do I know about anything? :p
