What's something in an anime you love, or otherwise enjoy, that you clearly don't like? These can be old series, stuff currently airing that you really enjoy, or both if you feel so inclined to mention them.

For a classic show, it's the cave episodes of Eureka Seven. The second half is, in my opinion, clearly stronger than the first in terms of pacing and escalation. The first half is still enjoyable for the most part, until the crew and their ship get stuck in a cave for 5 episodes. It's been a while since I last saw it, but those five episodes were a DRAG to get through. Luckily, once Renton meets up with the Beams, it picks back up.

For a show currently airing, although it's nothing amazing, I like Record of Grancrest War for being pretty good and for being a light novel fantasy adaptation without a harem. That being said, the pacing is really fast. Probably too fast. I feel like it got better around episode five or six, but it still feels like the plot isn't really allowed to breath. Also, I feel like the animation should be more polished in a few areas.

The Japanese and English voice actors for Raki in Claymore. Every time he yells "Clare!" I want to plug my ears.

Earlier episodes of Fairy Tail were kind of meh for me. It wasn’t until they started doing the character arcs (Galuna Island arc and onwards) and focusing on giving the characters a lot of development that I started to become really hooked on it.

(Also the Daphne and Eclipse fillers).

Endless Eight from The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi 2 is first that comes to mind.

Sword Art Online. Once past episode 14 the series never felt the same to me and I completely lost interest.
Berserk, the original was incredible. The 90's feel should have been kept without playing around with any of the CGI.

It's been awhile since I've last seen Your Lie in April, but I remember being annoyed at the bits when Kaori was violent towards Arima. In other shows, since I'm used to seeing that behavior with anime characters, I shrug off such displays. However, I thought it detracted from Your Lie in April since abuse (physical and mental from his mother) was a core aspect in Arima's development. Having that serious form of violence alongside Kaori's violence (which was presented as a comedy element) was very jarring.

Another one of my favorites is Encouragement of Climb. An aspect of the last few episodes of the second season really bugged me:

1. The way Monster ended.

This one is definitely debatable. In one sense, it worked really well; Tenma is still Tenma. On the other hand, damn it Johan!

2. The endless eight in Melancholy of Haruhi Suzamiya.

Do I need to say more?

3. Not enough Hisoka, Chollo, or Illumi.

At least give me another shirtless Hisoka scene.

I'm not even sure how I sat through that.

The "...No senpai, this is our fight!" in Strike the Blood. Not because I personally hate it. I actually love the catchphrase. but 99.9% of the rest of the anime world who have seen the show hate it and Himeragi. And I love her and that little phrase. And I am tired of being given grief for it or seeing memes of it posted, etc.

The only one that I can think of off the top of my head was the pacing in Deathnote, which was... weird.

I'm not sure overall but for currently airing series, I'll have to say the start of Citrus. The writing is clumsy and leans too heavily on shock value to kickstart it's characters rather than taking the time to develop them in a more full and natural manner. Once it gets going, it's really enjoyable but the beginning is a bit rough and likely turns away some people who would enjoy the show otherwise.
