Not seen any of those myself, personal preference of course but I think I prefer more realism than whacky, and some comedy not all comedy. My favourite type of comedy is more the situational type than the direct I guess. I want a show with some comedy in it, rather than a comedy show
For me the less comedy the better in anime, I prefer more realistic, serious seinen drama series, and anime that are cerebral, psychological, have a good mystery that keeps you guessing to the end, and/or makes you stop and think are mega-pluses. God I hate spoon-fed plots for the mindless. As you say, some smart, situational comedy is OK, But I can't stomach the in-your-face stoopid comedy of stuff like you usually get in comedy anime like Romcoms. And something weird like FLCL or Jojo's would make me barf to have to watch it.
