People like what people like. I don't necessarily think that my favorite anime are anime that you would enjoy, but I enjoyed them.
My ideal anime are either:
(1) Well thought-out, with multi-faceted characters, interesting themes, and real consequences for choices. (Ef ~ Tale of Melodies, Madoka)
(2) Pleasant and joyful anime with simple themes and a "nice" overall feel. (Kobato, Aria Series, Special A, Manabi Straight)
But many anime really can't be categorized. For example, Hana-Saku Iroha has aspects from both of the above "categories".
A Note: School Days shouldn't be hated simply because of the actions of the characters. Obviously you don't agree with what the characters do, but that's what the studio was going for. (Trololo.) It's -supposed- to be a distinct anime, and it is.
