I expected more from Sword Art Online. I'm not saying it was bad, but it should have been way better.
I was also disappointed in From the New World. All I could think was "WTF?" because I saw a great plot shown in a completely screwed up way.
I do agree with many in that Guilty Crown was disappointing.

Sword Art Online:

I enjoyed it when they where in SAO.
But.. after Kirito to BS'd his way out of a bunch of floors, the creepy rapist, and an incest sister, PLUS the fact that dying means nothing in Alfheim (which defeats the reason why the series was interesting to begin with..), every just became uninteresting.
Not to mention all the times they break the rules out of nowhere.. (EX: Actually hacking the game, and bullshit like using illusions to actually become a monster..)

Elfen Lied Elfen Lied ELFEN LIED!! Gah! The only character I liked was Lucy and she was ruined by the abomination known as Nyuu -_- then there's Yuka... so much hate. Kurama was alright though.

Not really sure why Vampire Knight is so popular either.

K-On is kinda disappointing too, hopefully it'll get better in the second season if the first doesn't

Probably gonna get shit for this, but Madoka Magica.
It was good, but not as superfuckinggodlyamazing as everyone said it to be.
& I also got annoyed at the fact that most people thought of it as the first magical girl deconstruction anime,
like c'mon there's Revolutionary Girl Utena & Princess Tutu, so yeah, definitely that one.

-Sword Art Online has one of the better concepts I've come across in a while though I happen to be a MMO gamer so my opinion here is obviously suspect. With that said, the first couple of episodes were very interesting. I have also taken the time to read all of the published light novels. My issues with the anime and the series in general is that Kirito is basically a super hero who transcends the laws...of MMO's... Yeah. Didn't bother me too much at first, mostly because I didn't quite realize what was going on, but when it finally did hit me the concept lost some of it's luster. There is a very funny rant in these forums about Sword Art Online where the person calls Kirito a "Gary Stue". Absolutely hilarious and sadly very true

Blue Exorcist - a very high recommendation from several friends of mine. Distinctly unimpressed
Melancholy of Haruhi Suzamiya - I wanted to like this show so bad but I could never get into it

There are also some series that were major disappointments to me mostly because they didn't have proper endings such as

Black Blood Brothers - just a mess of a series all the way around. The show basically drops you in the middle of the story and then ends...in the middle of the story. For some reason I still find it entertaining
Trinity Blood - Cool series though it never had a proper end and I really wanted to have a proper end
Spice and Wolf - love the light novels. Love the anime. Basically no chance of seeing an animated end to the series. FML

No you can have an opinion; but just the way you are saying them made you sound like a troll that's all! No harm done. ;D

I enjoyed Sword Art Online enough to keep watching to the end, but I am somewhat disappointed it didn't live up to my initial expectations. I've never played an MMO game, and generally have no little interest in reading the light novels on which the series is based, so I can't address SAO from those points of view. What did draw me in initially was the question of whether a bunch of ordinary folks (which, if otaku gamer stereotypes have any truth to them, would include a lot of socially marginalized individuals) thrown together in a life-or-death world could form a sufficiently functional society from the ground up (albeit a virtual one with magic and so on) to not only survive long term but even thrive and achieve victory over their captor. The series touched upon these sorts of issues, but didn't really seem to dwell on them for very long, and became just a regular haremesque action series to me.

No not a troll, but Chrome you shouldn't use profanity. Also don't flame other users just because they like Bleach. Even if it is really tempting to.

Didn't know you were a Blue Exor...cist fan.
And also, didn't know you've become a moderator. Who'd you sleep with to get the job?
