What I look for in an anime:
It's all about the characters. Do I feel for them? Do I want them to succeed? Am I heartbroken if they fail?
Good characters can make or break anything. A story with truly engaging and
heartwarming characters can be great whether it takes place in a fantastical world
of pirates or in a high school cafeteria. By contrast, the most imaginaive
settings imaginable cannot make a story about boring characters interesting. I need to
love the good guys, hate the bad guys, and have my emotions invested in the
outcome as much as the heroes do or it's not worth watching.
