So I kinda underestimated magi but I got really bored at home and ended up watching it and I ended up licking it because of its comedy. And I also remember underestimating to love ru and boy was I missing a lot, right now to love ru is one of my favorite harem/echii.

So are there any animes that you thought you wouldn't like but ended up licking it or loving it?

Also Clannad, thought it was going to be some cheesy forgettable high school romance

Madoka - surprised how much i like the art and dark story.

One piece - Hated the art style and thought it looked really childish, but turned out to be good and continues to get better.

Planetes; started out as normal fare of young man wanting to become a space astronaut and the obstacles he incurred along the way. The writing was good, story was well paced, plot somewhat believable. I became impressed with the series when the story focused on using the private sector to underwrite and finance the space exploration program rather than rely on quasi-governmental conventional thinking supervising the spending of other peoples' money. For a change the enterprising CEO was written as a catalyst of change rather than a back-stabbing, money-grafting thief. It's extremely hard to find any aspect of capital formation in a positive role. Usually Big Money is viewed as a necessary evil rather than a promoter for good.

Gurren Lagann
: started out as typical mecha show with focus on redemptive qualities of teamwork, individual maturation and growth, loss recovery (Simon) with all the major players being middle-school, teenage age. To me, this show separated itself from the usual fare when it went beyond the victorious stage of rubes into self-governance as a society 7 years afterward. The viewer got to watch the group dynamic change from the halcyon days of successful guerilla comraderie to questionable power distribution between the tribes with trust development and democratic fairness becoming the paramount concern. Not an easy task by any means and this anime series did not merely gloss over the problems inherent in governance. Highly commend this series for illustrating this.

As pointed out above: Welcome to the NHK Marvelous study of paranoia, depression effects/affects on an individual. Series did a fair job illustrating the vagaries of otaku life as well as the difficulty one can encounter on the trail to cognitive recovery.

Baka and Test.: Found it on Netflix and me and my wife made fun of it due to it's really dumb description. Then we watched it and it became one of our all time favorites.

Initial D: My wife's older brother always spoke highly of it, but its old animation style turned me off. I sat down to check it out one day and ended up finishing all four seasons in about a week. LOVE that show.

High School of the Dead: Zombies, hyper sexual females, and a harem atmosphere? NOPE. Ended up watching the first episode it in a group setting, liking it, going home and finishing the series over the next few days.

Another: Horror is not my thing. So I avoided this for a long time. I kept hearing good things so I finished it. Now its one of my favorites.

There's probably others to name, but I can't think of them.

Anohana- had to force myself through the first couple of episodes...
but after a while I grew attached to the characters and ended up loving it.

Madoka Magika- I dropped it on the first episode and only decided to continue after reading some comments that said it got much better later on.
