This is a thread about animes you thought you wouldn't like but then ended up liking anyway. Are you saying you didn't think you'd like Elfen Lied, but then once you saw all the cutting and dismemberment you liked it?

Ouran High School Host Club. I thought it was going to be a stupid anime with little substance, but it was surprisingly charming with surprisingly well-fleshed out characters.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes, which from what I read in reviews, I thought it was going to be all politics and talking. And, well, it was, but it was extremely enjoyable, and it turned out to becomes my favorite anime.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is also very popular and I thought it was overhyped, but while it isn't my favorite show, it's still good and extremely enjoyable.

Hmm a few come to mind. Nodame Cantabile and Detroit Metal City, both musical animes from polar ends, were foreign to me and I was pleasently surprised and kept watching then for not only the music used but the characters and plots too. Some are surprises from just if you saw the names of them like Get Backers or Bleach as they don't really seem obvious to what they're about. Some old cliches are sometimes not always true and surprise when you find the exceptions, like good animes based on video games (Idolmaster Xenoglossia), or recreate a common genre (Ouran High School Host Club and Toradora for the romantic harem comedy for example).

GA-Rei Zero, i thought at first its just some exorcism anime show like d.gray-man and ghostHunt, but it's not.

It's very awesome anime with all those bloodly scene and action and drama all in one...
