How do you review an anime by demonstrating its consistency, themes, etc and such without spoiling while avoiding rhetoric?

How do you compare its animation to other shows' animation without saying "it's better than so-and-so"? What is there to look for in the animation of a show? The same applies to sound.

How do you judge story? How do I know if something strains too long on a specific element or it has perfect pacing?

How do you judge character development? There's obvious cases when some characters fit a cliche or aren't given enough time, but it feels rather silly to comment on character development which 'seems realistic'. I would naturally expect the character development to seem realistic, but I don't know why I believe it is realistic.
