The animation style or the story?

For me, it will be the story. No matter how good the quality of the anime art is, it doesn't matter if the story suck.

What about you all?

Both are important, but animation style edges it out for me. If the story is good, but animation sucks, I'll stick with the manga.

story, but the main thing that matters is the level of hyperness. Can't stand when some animes wreck a perfectly good story by adding in characters getting all small and yelling in a hyper anime way.

This is the reason why I couldn't watch the original 2001 Fruits Basket anime and was stoked when they did a reboot with much better animation (and actually sticking close to the manga this time).

Of course the story is important, but as an animation artist, seeing sub-par shit annoys me to no end.

Actually I care if I can feel effort put in the work. It can have bad story and animation, but if I can feel the effort, I can appreciate it. There are some really bad animes out there that I enjoyed more than some supposed superior quality ones.

Past that, I can enjoy anime just for it's quality craftsmanship even if the story isn't there and vice-versa. As long it conveys its message properly and it's aware of its limitations, it should be fine. I have a big heart for anything.

The plot and characters. Sometimes I immediately skip to the last episode when the story is good but I couldn't stand the characters.
Animation comes last to me.

70% story, 30% animation. Tbh, i can't really differentiate two animations unless they're from different eras. but i can differentiate good stories very well

tiddies Good characters who I can feel for. I can't be dealing with boring characters whose stories just aren't worth daring about. If the characters are strong, I could tolerate a rubbish plot.

ngl i usually turn away from an anime if i hate the animation style. if i continue to watch it, it will bother me., but if the story is good i usually tolerate it. other than that tho, if i do get connected to a character then i will still watch even if the animation sucks lmao.

Both. But mostly story. If the animation is so bad that it hurts my eyes then I'll stop watching.

The animation style

If the story is bad imo i just laugh or skip

If the AS is bad i can't watch it no matter how much i try to
