For me it was Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Higurashi and School Days , but out of curiosity, What are some anime series that gave a false first impression and ended up not being what you thought it was.

I vaguely recall a similar thread, but since I don't know the title, there's no way I'd be able to find it.

That being said, I agree with the ones you pointed out. I'd also add Kiddy Grade. After episode 3, it became a very different show than I expected. It's one of the reasons why I started following the 3 episode rule. Cowboy BeBop also started differently, but the switch wasn't quite so abrupt.

Narutaru, the op makes it look like a good, clean, sweet kids' show.
Well...it's not

Probably the biggest surprise lately for me would have to be Gundam Age. I mean if you look at the art, it seems like a really kiddy show . Then I started to watch it with an open-mind out of boredom and grew to like it alot (now I'm eating through all the episodes to catch up)

School Days. Crazy ending out of nowhere. Didn't really care for that (and mostly because that's not where I expected the story to go--if I'd been expecting it, I would have been fine with it.)

Also Astarotte's Toy, which started off distinctly naughty but ended up being just very, very sweet. And I like both naughty and some kinds of sweet so the changed impression was still okay.

Most recently Durarara!!

Mawaru Penguindrum. False first impression, for sure, but that doesn't mean I didn't like that false first impression. When it really picked up, though, it was awesome.

Haruhi. I watched it back when I was a kid and thought it was stupid and my cousin told me not to watch it. Two months later I was addicted to it. :\ And with Higurashi, I totally forgot how I got into it, but it was when I was, like, seven and I totally just loved it. Still watch it today. And now I realize that Keiichi had a total harem going on.
