I don't understand the hype around Kill La Kill, and I never will. I more or less get offended by the fanservice, and for whatever reason the constant yelling makes me want to die.

so many so little time to list them all. to start the list we got Darling in the FRANXX, Kill la Kill, and basically any sports cartoon. not a fan of sports in real life, so it stands to reason I not care for the cartoon. also, since I'm not into boobs, fan service, ecchi and other hentai (perverted) things, stand to reason why I'm not into other cartoons centered around that a lot as well. but I have yet to find Black Clover interesting, I'm watching it, but I just don't see the hype in it. I've watched both versions (only a few dubbed, mostly been subbed) and neither appeals to me. to pull up something older, I have yet to see the appeal to Full metal alchemist and brotherhood or even hunter x hunter. seen them, just not all that impressed with them. it's not that I'm a tough crowd, but I like things differently sometimes as well as non mainstream.

Darling in the FRANXX and Record of Grancrest. I didn't expect anything from record of grancrest but it still managed to completely amaze me at how bad of a show it is. Darling in the FRANXX is just all really obvious sex metaphors.

Kill La Kill. The fan service doesn't bother me, but just like FLCL, it seems to be wacky and nonsensical just for thesake of being wacky and nonsensical.

Akame ga Kill. I got turned off when it tried to out Game of Thrones, game of thrones. Also the completely unbelievable motivations behind the psychotic antagonists, and trying to get the viewers to sympathize with them as they did inexcusably cruel things.

Land of the Lustrous for me. Sure, it looked nice, but I seriously don't see what so many other people did. The character development always happened off-screen, It was poorly paced and always cut each episode where it felt like a commercial would be instead of an end of an episode, and don't even get me started with the whole debacle with the snail shell. Besides that, none of the themes were ever explored to a point I found satisfying. The idea that they would lose their memories with pieces of their selves was really neat! But it was never really used or explored except for some minor drama when Phos might not remember who Cinnabar is.

I went into that series expecting to love it; it was 11 episodes in and I'd heard nothing but praise, but.. I just don't see it.

Konosuba to me is not that funny. I kinda expected it to be on the level of something like Yuyushiki which had me laughing like crazy every episode, but there's just long stretches where I'm just like, "wait, was that supposed to be a joke?", and I have no real reactions to any of them. The funniest episode I've seen so far is episode 8 of season 1 which is the first episode to make me ACTUALLY laugh rather than just a smile or a slight giggle. It's becoming more promising, though, so I'll stick to it.

Another one is Girls' Last Tour. I started getting back into it recently, after it won Best Slice of Life series, after only watching the first 3 episodes. It's soooo boring. Does anything even happen in it? Like, what is there to gain from it? Maybe I haven't gotten far enough into it for anything. The dreams in episode 5 were pretty interesting but their fucking dreams, of course they're going to be! Does anything else interesting ever happen in this show? I had more fun watching A Centaur's Life. At least that show had nice comedic moments and the characters were actually cute and not just blobs with eyes on them... freaky eyes too.

I don't like to get wrapped up in a series' hype. I always try to watch a series as blind as possible. Most series that get hyped up for whatever reason fail to live up to that hype, and IMO that is purely the fault of the fanbase for hyping things up to the point that if the show isn't near perfect it comes off as a disappointment. One comment that unnerves me more than anything when reading reviews is "I probably would have liked the show, but it didn't live up to the hype surrounding it." As far as I am concerned "Hype" is the worst thing the anime fan base can give an upcoming anime,since the expectations levied against it are often too lofty to be realized.

I don't often read reviews or anything about so I go into it with a open mind.
When I consider hype for say One Piece is mainly because it's so popular and beloved and everywhere so I figure well ok I'll see how it is.
.Then I got bored with it very quickly.

I guess word of mouth may be a more accurate description than hype

Well, I wasn't replying directly to you, but commenting on the OP.
