A critic is someone who envy other people's creativity or effort. Instead of trying to do something themselves, they shit talk and evaluate other people's work. In some rare cases, they hype a product, but that is only because they get paid for it or due to pressure from a specific group.

So me a critic? Hell no, but i don't mind getting paid to throw shit at someone or doing some PR work.
Personally I don't think that sharing ones opinion makes one a critic, especially you post it on a discussion forum. To me it is the same as if you talk about it with people about a subject in a pub. The only difference is that it is global or mega pub.

I think you're making some pretty strong generalizations here. What's wrong with evaluating other people's work; especially if said work is being offered to consumers in exchange for their hard earned cash?

Nothing, in that case you would be a critic.

Do I consider yourself an "Anime Critic"?

Well, NOT really because some people will disagree & start having a flame wars for some reasons IF I do some reviews of it even they posted some sorta word like 'Haters Gonna Hate'.

I am definitely NOT a critic. I watch anime to enjoy it - not dissect it like a frog and examine all the innards.

Agreed, just like movies & video games which it used to be enjoy it rather than review it (like Gamespot, IGN & Rotten Tomatoes) which it's pointless.

I've found an approach that if I don't like something then it's not for me, but for other people. There were even times when I listened to a particular CD, didn't like it, listened to it a few months later and loved it. Having interest in something depends on your mind frame at the time as well as preferences. And also in regards to critiquing anime there's the old, "I'm not a visual artist and can't do anything amazing like that" so why snub someone's work if it doesn't appeal to me, it's kinda selfish I think.
