It also does not mean liking the plot/character, I appreciate the world that, from words and sketches, animators have created. The overarching world which the story takes place in is also something that can be appreciated.
Don't blindly hate or love anime: our opinions do not necessarily need to be in conflict. There are things we appreciate beyond what it sells itself to be.
*And thus, I rate solely on enjoyment I got from the anime*
Things I appreciate and thus rate highly on:
Music (Guilty Crown)
Visuals (God Eater/ Tales of Zesteria the X)
Word Building (Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei)
Things Done Well (Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry)
Things I won't appreciate and will absolutely butcher:
Animated Advertisements (Phantasy Star Online II)
Ambiguity (Spice and Wolf)
Flat Ending (K)
Slice of Life for the Sake of Slice of Life (K-On)
Oh and as a general rule I don't watch airing anime. Almost all anime i watch is finished it 1or 2 seatings tops.
