I thought the anime's plot is totally meh, and I couldn't get all the way through the first season because it seems that once the main story arc was over at around episode 12 it started to have these really dumb fillers... I quit right there.


Dumb fillers? I would assume your speaking about the OVA's. All 3 season are base on the light novels well though some of the seasons are kinda out of order in-terms of what was shown. Season 1 was novel vol. 1 & 2 with if I'm correct some of vol. 8 of the novel.

Again if I remember correctly there is a total of 4 OVA's, 2 for Season 1, then 1 each for Season 2 & 3.

Assuming base on what you've typed, you haven't read the light novel at all. Just like most things that are written first then made into TV shows or Movies not everything is put in. So some details are lost, misplaced, or not done correctly for the viewers. Some information the light novel itself around 22 volumes, with about 4 side books as well. Just my 2cent though!

Last note you are right that some anime's do add fillers that shouldn't even bother but to another point they are added because the sources material hasn't gotten farther in the storyline.

I think season 2 was done reasonably well. Season 3 was just WTF though.
