Naruto- I know a lot of people like Naruto, but it's not really my type of show.

Argevollen- I dislike mecha anime.




Then why did you expect to like these? XD

Puella Magi Madoka Magica the way it sounded was really cool i enjoy magical girl shows and this one sounded like it was doing something different with the genre but in the end it was just a very boring dull show where nothing actually happens just people sitting around talking about wishes and being a magical girl. It also has some very pretentious fans who deflect all criticism of the show by being like "You are just not intelligent enough to get how complex it's a deconstruction!" I really hate the word "Deconstruction" it's sort of become a trendy way to describe a piece of media to make yourself seem deep.

Another one Strike The Blood it looked cooler in previews than it really was. It's just really repetitive and the constant thing where he gets nosebleeds and swallows them was really annoying.

Shin Sekai Yori was another that seemed alright in previews i like weird anime but this one just got really dumb after a few episodes and i gave up on it after trying really hard to like it for 10 or so episodes. Same issues as with Madoka really tries too hard to be something it's not and suffers from poor writing.

Nobunagun seemed like the quirky kinda anime sorta FLCL and Kill La Kill type stuff which is normally fun but in the end it aired and it was just another Moecrap show. Lasted about 4 episodes before i'd had enough i guess i really wanted to like this too.

Attack on Titan - Hear great things and watch episode one and when the mom gets eaten . just NO.
Maris the Chujo - My memory played me false. Watched it at a friends house and loved the in-jokes. Decided to get my own copy on VHS and well the in-jokes are still funny, but the rest was pure crap.
Naruto
Pokemon
One Piece
Inuyasha

I think basically it can be boiled down to the fact that if it gets put on US TV on Saturday mornings I will not like it. But I try to keep an open mind with little to no expectations.

If we're talking recent releases then without a doubt I'd have to say Blade & Soul. It just felt all sorts of.... disjointed? I'm guessing they meant for it to have an episodic feel but it just didn't meld together. Also, the animation quality after episode 1 just wasn't up to snuff, IMO. I stopped watching after episode 5.

Glasslip this season has fit the mold here. I was expecting something great to come out of this show after what P.A. Works did with Nagi no Asukara. But what I ended up getting in this show is talk about something big going down the line, but with a story that's beating around the bush and not really providing much connectivity or relevance. I was just losing my patience with this show that I ended up dropping it.

i thought i was gonna like elfen lied. in theory, it sounds good witht the violence and the split personalities of lucy, but it was so boring. i couldn't fully get into it. there was something about it that kept me from fully getting into it. four hours of my life i'll never get back.

I find having expectations can cause one to colour ones judgement. So it is what it is.

I don't know. The way I see it you shouldn't even have expectations to begin with. At least this is how I personally see it.

That was what I was trying to say. But being human it is natural to have some sort of expectations. Just need to have the ability to not fatally prejudice your opinion.

SAO - My friend told me too watch it since the plot seems interesting: couldn't be more wrong.

AoT - Everyone kept saying it's the best anime ever and I thought, "I might as well watch it."

GoSick - First arc was super interesting, but after that it's pretty meh for me.

Narutaru - Someone said it shares similarities to Magic Madoka, but my god this anime was painful too watch.

Glasslip. I appreciate what they're trying to do, but the characters just aren't interesting enough to pull it all together.
