Maybe asking the question, "Have you ever..." rather I should ask: What anime's have you found yourself starting and during the first episode at some point you say, "What the f*ck am I watching!?!" ...usually I find that those anime's turn out to be some of my favorite's!

Here's one I started today that is a case-in-point:

Rinne no Lagrange: Akatoki no Memoria (Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne)...


I love it so far & I totally had one of those moments! lol


Now... here is another point & this anime turned out to be my favorite of favorite's:

Shakugan no Shana...

HA! that's like being on a rollercoaster, you expect it, but you still get...thrilled?

I mean, I usually like to start an anime w/o knowing what it's about. The only thing I look into before I watch something new is the audience it's directed at and the genre.

Serial Experiments Lain...
This is one of those series that went over my head. I want to be able to understand it by myself, not read the explanation on Wiki.
Episode after episode, I'm like, "WTF is going on?"

I don't know if you've read how I pick out anime to watch each season... umm... briefly look at the picture say yes or no.

You get to a point where you watch anime and you don't feel excited nor disappointment. Many first episodes I watch now I honestly don't give a rats ass. I am speaking for a small percentage of the community, but my experience has lead me to this point.

It also gets to a point where it is really hard to finish an anime, simply put... it is very unoriginal that it doesn't "click."

I was talking with a friend (recently) he just started anime and he is hooked. This was the exact same thing for me at the beginning. Now here I am, explaining the double-edge sword that is anime.

tl;dr the passion is dead almost, there is no wtf anymore.

Yea, this might be the most "WTF" series I've watched. I still need to get around to watching it again, I haven't read any plot/episode summaries either.

It's quite amazing how Hentai can still surprise you.

Let's end the Hentai talk there.

First time I saw Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo ( yes I had to google how bo's there were.)

But more recently: Ishida & Asakura



It made me think WTF, but the more I watched it...

Well...

the more I went WTF. Though I think that's where the show's charm resides.

Huh? I didn't get a wtf moment when I watched Rinne no Lagrange or Shana the first time. However, I did get wtf moments when I watched Jinrui wa Suitaishimashita and Sasami@san. Also, same applied somewhat to Aku no Hana this Spring.

I guess that happens when you've seen 1k-2k anime's, eh?



you know...

come to think of it, the whole time I watched Inu X Boku SS I was saying, "WTF?!" lol

"You're a sadist!" ... "You're a masochist!"


-edit-
and I loved that anime.
