shakugan no shana, I watched the whole series.

It had so much going for it, but felt it was delivered like a teeny bop romance.

Gintama.

I've seen the first 5 episodes between 2007 - 2013 a total of 5 times and I'm still trying. Every time someone brought it up, I would be all excited and gave my best but still ended up putting it on hold.

I was being told that the anime only gets better after episode 56..? That is if I can actually reach it.


If you've seen Death Note then you might find episode 25 hilarious. I'm not saying you'll cry, but I am saying I cried lol. It's a pretty standalone episode apart from some in-jokes from the previous episodes.

The annoying thing about Gintama is when I'm recommending it to someone, it always sounds like I'm just trying to convince myself that it's not that bad. But that's not true, because I think it's amazing. It's just that it's a huge meandering show. It's like a fantasy-shounen slice-of-life. The key is getting attached to the characters for the show to work its magic. But it really picks up by episode 25, and I think the first serious arc is like around episode 30? Anyway, it's worth your time and efforts to stick through the first few episodes, like with other shounens or slice-of-lifes.

More eloquent people can tell you much more and better things about it, though. And also, I'm very sleepy, so perhaps I can make this post a bit better tomorrow lol


Episode 25? Cheers.

That seems a lot easier to reach. I was planning to give it another go tonight anyway.

Naruto. After naruto and sasuke fought, kinda lost interest, but im slowly getting back into it. The overwhelming amount of fillers kinda killed it for me though. Once Aizen got sealed in bleach, everything got boring. Plus the character development is soooo bad. Ive been waiting for chad to do some badass shit, but it seems ichigo is the only one getting upgrades. Also tell me how a kid who's NEVER used a sword can now fight on the same level as people who've been using swords for 1000's of years? kinda dumb. Clannad. Everyone goes nuts over this show. I finished the first season and it was ok. I had to force myself to watch up to ep 12 of season 2. its just too boring and repetitive. I just don't care anymore lol.

Hypuka would be one. I mean I like the idea of mysteries(even trivial ones) getting discussed and I enjoyed the 1st episode and all but the main girl annoys me and I don't feel like watching it anymore whenever she forces the mc to investigate and stuff.

I mean I know there are characters who does worse(like Suzumiya Haruhi) but the main girl in Hyouka is just...

Also, Acchi Kocchi. My brothers love it and find it funny, I don't. Maybe on a few occasions(like that chocolate cake scene, the cats being close to Io scene and that candy cutting scene) but so far, I can't get into it and it bored me.

I really want to like Kobato. It just hasn't caught me yet. I'm 12 episodes in and I have been putting it on hold for like 4 months.

I don't know if this will make her less annoying necessarily, but you should try to think about it from the guy's perspective. He basically does want her to be pushy and make him do stuff. He just isn't honest with himself about it.

But I mean... I thought it was a pretty boring show myself honestly. The festival arc around the middle of the show is great though.

I know. I can see that and I noticed he was interested in those mysteries and stuff anyways but I myself am annoyed with her.(so not liking the show is just me having issues about the main girl, really).

Attack on Titan. All my friends love it, and I can see why. It's clearly well-done. The characters are likeablel, the titans are hella scary, the atmosphere is very well-crafted, and the action sequences are quite cool.

But for some reason, I haven't been able to bring myself to watch any more of it since about a month ago.

Uraboku-
I thought this anime would have everything set up I liked; great animation and art style, and shounen-ai undertones.
I watched one episode, and I nearly fell asleep. The main character's voice is aggravating, and so is the very cliche plot.
I just can't get into it.

Chitanda? She is really annoying. She's cute, but incredibly pushy and just.. aggravating.
But the main character kind of needed that, since he really didn't give a fuck.
