I don't have a favorite anime but I can tell you what I don't like in anime.

Unnecessary Fan-service

ridiculous body proportions on what they give female characters

Other if those are not in an anime I tend to enjoy it but I guess my favorite anime genres are school-life and mystery mostly, I like good anime equally.

Blood+, Monster, The Devil May Cry Anime (I don't know why, it's just entertaining to watch) or Full Metal Alchemist (Not brotherhood, maybe more close to the manga but for me the way they linked the sin-representative-homunculi with their creators was a fascinating plot point, and having that change to the same old bad guy creates more bad guys schism falls short to me. I prefer the more serious notes of the first series regardless of continuity.) 

Not sure which one is my favorite, but those are the ones I keep watching multiple times so they must be my favorites.

Hmmmmmmm

Slayers, is absolutely on my list and has been for a long time.  It has everything!  One of the most solid magic systems I've seen in anime, an interesting fantasy world, strong characters who could carry the show on their personalities alone, interesting and solid plot once it decides to have one, fun episodes when it doesn't, one of my favorite characters in all anime (Xellos).  The weakest part is the romance, but it's still there and they're still cute.

Monthly Girls Nozaki-kun is currently very high but it looks like it'll only ever have one season.  Never has an anime made me laugh so hard.  Also, it's all about a manga circle.  As an artist I relate to the subject material for a change.

Case Closed/Detective Conan for certain.  I've seen all of it.  Yes, even the OAV's and Movies.  Once you get past the implausible premise it's a really solid mystery show and the plot arc where you find out what's up with Jodie (least spoilery way I can think to put it) still gets me excited every time I watch it.  Also, Conan himself is adorable.  On a related note, Magic Kaito 1412 is quite a bit of fun, less realistic but has a trickster main character and I'm a sucker for those.

There are others that I really love but won't be putting on this list because the manga is better.  Magic Knight Rayearth (my first manga) and Full Metal Alchemist for example.

One Piece used to be on this list, but I no longer trust the author.

Bless this show. Nozaki is way too easy too relate to. My favourite gag will forever remain the box gag - because it reminds me of myself a lot.

My number 1 favorite anime is Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (though I like the manga more since the anime hasn't covered my favorite parts 6 and 7)

Dead Leaves. It's an anime movie tho. Still it's pretty fricking good.

Also, Eden of the East, Un-Go and C: The Money of Soul are the top three. There's something very appealing about them all.

Apart from that, I guess that Speed Grapher was pretty nice, TTGL, Witchblade, P4A was also good and little more I can think about.

It's actually easier for me to remember which ones I don't like. Which is probably not good.

"If the lion knew her own strength, hard were it for anyone to rule her". This would be my custom title if I had enough spaces for it. Coming off of personal pain, I'm glad I found the original quote I've tweaked.
Today I found out that ladybirds\ladybugs are apparently named for the Virgin Mary. They're also known as God's cows in some places.
