What animes do you think looked horrendous, but turned out to be entertaining or great?

This can also apply literally to things like "don't judge a book by its cover" sort of thing as in School-Live.

No Game No Life is my contribution. If you haven't seen it, you might as well as watch it. It didn't look entertaining from the outside. I felt like it wasn't going to be what I wanted, but hell, was that show entertaining.

Prisma Iria was actually ok.

Knowing what I knew about the original Hellsing anime, I didn't think going back and redoing it would help. But Hellsing Ultimate is one of the best series I've seen, anime or otherwise. I don't usually buy into the vampire tropes, but that was so well done.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure can really turn people off with it's funky art style and animation.
Denki-Gai looks pretty awful but is solid despite everything you might think about it from the description.

I expected pedowank lolis. I got just that. Then I dropped the show... feeling so dirty inside afterwards.

Well one recently was Rakudai Kishi no Calvary, thought it would be a generic harem but was surprisingly really good!
Aldnoah.Zero cause I normally hate anything to do with mecha
Garo: Honoo no Kokuin I thought looked odd but really liked
I also stopped watching Kill La Kill after the first episode cause there was already so much fan service but I went back and I am so glad I did
I also didn't think I'd like Overlord

Ever try to get someone else to watch Princess Tutu? Not the easiest thing in the world to sell to them, is it?

(And of all the "Anime with Princess in the title" that Best Buy snarked at ADV for having to sell single-disks of, I don't think it was Yucie or Princess Nine they were referring to...)

Was not expecting anything from Zetsuen no Tempest. I was pleasantly surprised.

Ore Monogatari (My Love Story!).

Seems like a typical and generic Shojo, but in reality, it is not! Very mature in how it handles love and relationships.

I kinda agree with you on that part. But, truly it was hard to watch with that slow plot
Well, at least the movie was "a bit" more entertaining.
