Momo Kyun Sword, the genres fit but, all I could think about when I was watching it was "This reminds me of Sailor Moon..." Also Sword Art Online I, the fact that it changed gears right in the middle of it from this... action packed life or death video game anime to another run of the mill romance was rather annoying. At least Log Horizon was there to show how the video game story should have been told.

Madoka

One word. Overhyped.

I heard Madoka was really sad. And it wasn't nearly as sad as Angel Beats or Anohana. Not even close.
This ain't the first anime where characters die.

Log Horizon...the moe/master bullcrap turned me off big time.

That's the best example I can think of, really.

I only watched the first episode. Nothing about it encouraged me to keep watching. Perhaps I'll watch some more if I get bored enough and have nothing better to watch.

Man, it's not even JoJo's at that point. You've gotta watch till like episode 3, not to mention the masterpiece that is episodes 10-26.

But then again, I like it way more than most people. Just my bias talking.


I'll have to give it another try sometime then and just skip episode one. Killing the dog like that just put me off of the entire show.

Naruto, Gargantia, and love live. I thought I was going to get into the "hype" train with them all but... no.

I guess I'll add to the long list of SAO's

for me specifically though, I rather enjoyed most of the first half. It was near the end of the first half and the entirety of the second half that greatly disappointed me.

It's still too early for me to judge the second season though...however, I will say it at least has a better start than the Alfheim arc.

Mostly 50% anime in my list.

I'm actually going to steal your example, I heard HSDXD was good from a friend and turned out not being able to stand it. Also I expected to like Attack on Titan, but I think a lot of that was the over-hyping that surrounds it.


I do personally like DxD (having read the LN).
To each his own, but outside of your friend mentioning that it was good, would you say you like/don't mind ecchi shows?
If you don't like/ can't stand ecchi, you never really had a chance of liking it. (though there is a lot of story behind all of the ecchiness)
Is this something you would have liked minus your friend's recommendation is the kind of answer i'm looking for.


I wouldn't say it was the recommendation or the genre, more that it just didn't click. I can't really think of a particular reason it just didn't hold my interest during the beginning of the show to really compel me to continue with the series. Its certainly not the first show that has been that way for me.

Argevollen- I dislike mecha anime.

Wouldn't that have automatically disqualified it from being "Anime you expected to like"?

Expected to love Kimi To Boku, but when I actually started watching it.. it well.. it just didn't turn out to be as great as I expected.

My expectations were probably too high --idk
