What kind of person are u?

As far as i know there are 2 kinds of people

1.


There are people who looks up "my anime list",select a genre,choose an anime,look up the synopsis of an anime

Then finally,looks at the reviews..

If the majority of the people likes a particular review(for example lets say an anime got a 3 out of 10)

Then the person decides not to watch it

And then vice versa

2.

People who dont really care about the reviews and ratings and watches it even if the review and ratings are bad

What kind of person are you

And if any of u are the "no 2" type

Have u ever liked an anime tht had bad ratings and reviews?

I get recommendations from friends. I find that reviews are generally more reliable than ratings, because they give me a better idea of what I'm getting into and what I'll be seeing. Unless the review is extremely poor, which is rare, I'll always give something a shot. Even if it takes me ages to get around to it.

Hm, I'm not really looking for anime.
I'm an images-collector in the first place.. and when I'm searching for images and find something interesting-looking, then I try to find out from which anime/manga it is. So, an anime has to impress me with its artwork/art-style first. If that isn't the case, then I won't watch it.

The next step I follow is watching the first 2-3 episodes. I don't really care about ratings and reviews, but I check if the anime has fanservice. If it does, then I won't watch it, unless the fanservice is very rare. So, about 80% of the anime that I wanted to watch were dropped by me before I even got into it.

I just randomly get six animes and give each a number from 1-6. I roll a dice and watch the first episode for 30 seconds. If I don't like the series, I drop them from the top of Mount Rushmore.

Numerous ways. I may just google specifically for what I'm feeling, see an image of something that looks cool, MAL, /a/, recommendations from friends, manga I've read, etc. I also obviously do some base research of the anime usually to see if I'll even like it. Don't read reviews though.

I'm more of the two type. I do look up synopsis but only after I've seen something that piques my interest. Usually it's purely visual, if the cover images look good and seem like they have effort in them it draws my attention. Last time I listened to rants and reviews it lead me to AoT which couldn't live up to the hype the fans built for it. I find it better to go in with a vague concept of what you'll be seeing.

The first part was good though I don't like the "after 30 seconds then drop" part. That's way too short to really make an opinion on something, also(and this is just personally) I've sat through movies that were bad for the first half or better but sometimes the ending makes it all worth it and then upon a 2nd viewing you see it wasn't as bad as you originally thought you just weren't in the right feel at the time.
