What are some of the animes that everyone seems to love or think highly of, but you just can't stand them? Why can't you stand them?

For me:

1. Haibane Renmei



I got this entire series all at one time with Netflix a few years back. I had nothing else to watch, so I went through the whole thing. It is HANDS DOWN the most boring anime I have ever seen. I went through the entire show waiting for something, anything dramatic to happen and it just didn't. Yet, people love this show. It's like Nyquil to me.

2. Lucky Star


I could only make it through one episode of this. Everybody was telling me how funny it is, but it just seemed like one random, unfunny joke after another. Like it was trying hard to be an anime version of Seinfeld, but didn't quite make it. But it's seems like it's almost blasphemy to bash this anime sometimes.

3. Excel Saga


See: Lucky Star. Just too off the wall for me. I watched an entire episode and didn't laugh one time.

4. Revolutionary Girl Utena


I actually tried to get into this twice, due to all the rave reviews, but it just didn't do anything for me. Just seemed a bit too girlish. I could only do two episodes.

What are some of your picks?

(I wonder how long it will take for someone to bring up Attack On Titan or Sword Art Online...)

Jinki Extend and Eureka seven AO they were both just so confusing and the only thing I liked about the shows was the action.

Well Haibane renmei is probably my 3/4th favourite anime but I can still see where you're coming from. I thought it had a beautiful engrossing atmosphere and just took different approaches. It's a slice of life anime so it's about setting, mood and feeling... especially connecting with characters and imo it did have some dramatic moments. It was actually adapted from a manga so i'm not sure if you'd have enjoyed that.

anyway I don't rate that harshly the anime i've actually finished, I drop anime the second i realize I hate it. But I finished Black Cat and thought it was disjointed, it was just a drag...

Lucky star was Mediocre.

And ef well the novel is basically the same with some added stuff.
And yeah biggest piece of garbage in the history of the universe cause the ending with yuuko

Naruto was my first Anime and i like it.... Just it's EH compared to so so many of the great animes out there.
It honestly seems to lack everything i could think of, even though the original Naruto was awesome i just feel Shippuden is like a forcibly made extra because of it's popularity... But what do i know!

I wouldn't call a series "highly regarded" if it has less than 7.8 score on MAL :P

I watched all of Baccano!, but it bored me (except for the idiot couple - they were funny), so I guess I would put it on the hate list.

Elfen Lied comes to mind. I get that the gore, nudity, and violence are supposed to be a part of its appeal, but it just seemed tacky to me - like they were trying to coast on shock factor. I found that it had an incorrect proportion of disturbing material to interesting developments, so I eventually just said "This is disturbing me and i'm not getting anything out of it"

Kannazuki no Miko was another. I don't really want to go into detail, because I know there are others who like the show. I'll just say that I decided to watch it solely to "get it under my belt" as it were, and every episode felt like a laborious chore. I won't say its bad, but I will say that I wasn't able to find any parts that I personally thought were good. Just a difference in preference, I suppose.

Eh, well you didn't like Kannazuki very much.
What to do...

Here's what I personally didn't like:

Strawberry Panic (Overrated as hell, dawg.)
Yuru Yuri (Same as before)
Toradora
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (I bet Karas could beat her...)
Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos (Kukko? ...dear God...)
K-On!

And well, that's pretty much it from me.

I don't really hate it, but don't see the greatness of it. That is Angel Beats.

"Hate" is strong word, but Shakugan no Shana didn't interest me that much. Only watched the first season.

I can't stand any of these. It shouldn't take you 400+ episodes to tell this story.
