While I didn't like Haruhi Suzumiya as much as most people, you completely missed the point of Mikurus character; it is a juxtaposition to Haruhis character. Mikuru is the generic moe timid girl, while Haruhi is a unique larger than life and complete opposite to her. It is a completely unique take on the generic female depiction in anime thats why people like it.



And this changes the fact she's annoying...how?


I'm just telling you why its so popular and why people actually like the series..


Yeah, and I'm telling you why I thought it was stupid. Me finding the series is stupid has nothing to do with Mikuru, she's just a character in the series that annoys me.

That doesn't mean I didn't understand the series. It's not like the series is hard to understand in the first place. It's just a dumb concept (as I already stated). Any other disagreements you have with my opinion?

I'm not trying to disagree with you. Not everything is about disagreements and antagonizing people. If thats your opinion, not big deal. I responded to you because your original post came across as not understanding the series at all. :D

While I am not the most huge fan of the series like most people I appreciate the impact it has had on anime and the fact that is completely different than most anime at the time.

This is you telling me that I not only do not understand Mikuru's character, but I "missed the point" of the entire series simply because I said Mikuru is annoying and the concept was stupid.

No, I'm not "misunderstanding" Mikuru's character. I don't need clarification of the concept. To me, they are both stupid. There's no misunderstanding. It's my opinion. You can either deal with it, or don't, but your lack of reading comprehension is sure unnerving. Think before you post. Just because somebody dislikes something about a series, doesn't mean they don't understand it. In fact, true dislike comes from a full understanding of a series, and still disliking it.

Think carefully before you respond again, lest you enjoy looking foolish.

Wow, you put a lot of effort in this... So I'm not gonna fuel your need for flam wars.
I've got better this to do, so TL;DR... Peace :D

You amuse me.

Moving on.
Death Note. This thing gets the fanboy treatment and then some. With the sheer number of positively GLOWING reviews for it I just kept watching waiting of it to get good. It got meh at best. Honestly I found pretty much the whole thing predictable and boring. Having the antagonist as the main character is fairly unique but beyond that I never understood what was so special about it.


Freezing. I really enjoy the manga to this so sat through the whole anime; I wish I hadn't. While the manga does have some ecchi the anime shoehorned as much in as it physically could to the point of just being ridiculous. The whole plot was hacked up with stuff removed or their chronological order changed and completely non-canon stuff added in just as an excuse for more ecchi. Also the character designs were fairly liberal interpretations to put it politely.

Bleach... yeah just take your time why don't you? Pacing was a really big issue for me with Bleach and, combined with the meteoric power gains and rapid fire diabolus ex machina formula, is the reason I eventually dropped it albeit after forcing myself through about 100 more episodes than was necessary for me to put myself through.

Most of the time I watch an anime all the way through because I don't want a bias perspective. However, there are exceptions such as Ikki Tousen........ Two episodes in and I hated it....

I think the only anime I've forced myself to finish despite the horrid aftertaste was School Days, I didn't feel I could make a valid judgment or review of the project unless I watched it through in order. I've seen other projects which in looking back I saw them as lackluster or downright awful but didn't feel like I had to force myself just to make it through.

How average was that anime? What a waste of time!

For me, One Piece. I feel compelled to watch it because it's so popular, but the animation, voice acting, and plot lines really grate on me.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, I liked it at first but eh.

Clannad, only the ending of the 2nd season touched me.

Arcana Famiglia - was waiting for it to get better but..

Bokura Ga Ita - it was painful to watch all the drama but I guess the ending was okay.

Final Approach

It was fun the the 1st few episodes but later, I got annoyed and tired of the main girl. She does a lot of things that aren't funny to me anymore. It's kind of easy to understand why the main guy gets mad at her and stuff but his friends get mad at him to defend the girl like the guy had no legitimate reason to get angry. I mean really.

It was only 12(or 13) episodes and each is 12 minutes long or something. I decided to finish it even though I was getting really annoyed because it's short and I can add another title to the list of animes I've finished watching.

Escaflowne. Don't try to pass off a bad plot as abstract.

Rozen Maiden - I don't even know if it was bad, I just know it was 100% not my cup of tea. But somehow I watched every episode (of S1).

Danganronpa - this would be excellent as a show aimed towards adults only: nice and macabre. Unfortunately, the dark tone gets interrupted by MC's "be nice, we're all friends (even though we were strangers a few days ago and have to kill each other)" stuff. But I'm sticking with it for now.

And FairyTail - it's to my great embarrassment that I watched it for about 96 episodes. What? Natsu is still powering up to impossibly save the day? Didn't see that coming...
