I normally dislike the giant fighting robot/mecha anime, but I can think up 3 exceptions. The very first was STRAIN because of the giant mystery surrounding the defection of the main character's brother.


The 2nd is Aldnoah Zero for a mostly fantastic plot as well despite some ass-pulls (esp. the last episode before break)

(Yuki is my favorite character.)

The 3rd is Argevollen and I am not really sure why it appeals, but it does. I guess part of it is a semi-realistic military life.

What do you mean ass-pulls? I thought the finale was great. It was one of the very few cliffhangers I actually liked. (Side note, Argevollen sucks)

Slaine starts up Tharsis despite not having the ability before.

Slaine saves Count Saazbaum despite Count Saaznbaum repeatedly saying he will kill Princess Asseylum.

Slaine shoots Inaho in cold blood.

Count Saazbaum's Voltron like mecha that has ALL the other's abilities and flaws.

Each and every one of these was a major ass-pull that was out of character or established history of the show.

That's not true, Slaine saved Saazbaum and not Inaho because the idea that people of earth are inferior to the people of Mars has set into his head after all those years. And what's the problem with Saazbaum's mech? He is the highest on the totem pole so it would only make sense he would have all the benefits and you can't have those distinct advantages without those weaknesses. They're not some bullshit weak point like Ganon's Tail, they're design flaws that inevitably come with those design advantages. Slaine using the Tharsis is bullshit, but I like to hope that it will be explained next season. Also watch Knights of Sidonia.

Not a fan of most series with huge fujoshi fan-bases (rather than dislike is more like I rarely give them a try), but I enjoy Durarara! and HunterxHunter.

Not a fan of mecha(okay with mech-like suits, but not full-size mech series), but Full Metal Panic and Aldnoah Zero were great. (Haven't tried the legendary EVA or Gundam yet.)

Not a fan of oppai, but enjoy Senran Kagura and Highschool DxD

I generally do not like fan service, but sometimes it is really funny so I accept it for what it is.

Not a fan of the sports genre, unless it's Suzuka . Such a wonderful mix sports, romance, and slice of life. I watch it whenever I can

Mai HiME doesn't count.

I'm talking about YURI(as a genre).

That depends on who you ask and which entertainment medium / universe you happen to be viewing.

Either way it was just a stupid joke.

I know.
I actually thought that pic was hell funny.
Maybe Chikane and Shizuru should do a rap battle.
Have 50 cent or Snoop Lion host.

(Well, I follow the ACTUAL yuri shows and not the shows that have yuri as a side element)

Hmm... Chikane x Shizuru huh? This ship is sailing to a new universe. Only in my head though.
I get what you mean about yuri as the main genre and a show having a yuri element. There are just so few anime so we yuri fans take what we can get.
