For me it's more about editing style than about anime choice. Back in the days I used to find awesome anime through AMVs =/

Like most other people already mentioned, song and anime combination as well as a good concept should make up for any bad choice in source. Since that's kinda rare though I can understand that you'd want to just concentrate on one particular kind of anime though.

Also, a thing like a FLCL rush I wouldn't consider general preferance, I think we all sometimes have a certain need to see lots of AMVs to an anime we just watched and really enjoyed.

I'm an anime fan first and an AMV fan second, so I'm really, really picky with what I'll download and watch. I know I don't enjoy videos that use sources I'm not familiar with or have no interest in, so I tend to avoid them. But I will jump at the chance to see a video that uses something I like.

Right now, I'd love to see a good video using Hunter X Hunter or Shounen Onmyouji ;P

Chrono Crusade just has tons of EXEMPLARY effects built in, I always am tempted to give CC videos an 8 on tech effects right off the bat (above average)... but I always have to remind myself that it's just the anime.

Other animes, such as the infamous 3, Voices from a Distant Star, Beyond the Clouds and 5cm per sec. are just drawn BEAUTIFULLY.

As for the AMVs I just absolutely LOVE to watch... well the anime doesn't matter really lol. As long as it shows that you had fun making it is all that matters to me, in the end. (along with my own AMVs, this is what I try to show)

Yu Yu Hakusho~! :P
DBZ - with plot
Sailor Moon

...what? I'm an 80s kid, lemelone.

I also like Naruto, Bleach, Prince of Tennis, and One Piece. Basically any of your "bunch of young guys and very few females" anime. Nice. ^__^

...I don't care much about the song. If I don't hate it, it's fine by me. I don't care much about editing - if it doesn't burn my eyes with speed and effects or go so slow and detached I fall asleep, it's fine by me. I just want to see 3.5 minutes highlighting my favorite characters in their best scenes, maybe with some innuendo added in there for the heck of it.

I watch vids to unknown anime only when I have to, in which case the brain in me will acknowledge the effort and quality of the editing while the heart in me will doze till my eyes tear up and my cheeks get that sticky "I've been yawning till I cry again" sensation. If I don't know the characters, there's no connection, no emotional response, and thus, I'm not really interested except to appreciate cold editing technique.

I'm an anime fan. AMVs are a handy way of getting my anime fix in juicy bite-sized portions. Image

dosnt that kinda defy the purpose of them being "eye candy?"

eye candy is something that is enjoyable to watch - which is why you download vids in the first place, amirite?
I'll give you an example. Rezz's "Shapeshifter" video. Sure his effects are really impressive, but it leaves you wondering why you waisted time watching it. Id rather watch a video that has emotional sync. Id rather see how creative an editor can be story/concept wise than how he/she can whore effects.
