I was fooled by the pretty art, though it's English dub has decent voice actors. I was expecting likeable characters, boy I was wrong. As far as reverse harems go, Vampire Knight and Kamigami no Asobi are way better.

Madoka Magica

I'm not usually a fan of magical girl, but this one had just enough twist to interest me.

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.




I just couldn't get past the implied incest of No Game no Life though Sword Art Online I thought looked very generic but I really liked the first 13 episode of that one!


Implied??? There was an ep. on that topic on how the male mc was like "Nooooooooooooo. You're my sister".

Yeah you must of taken it the wrong way, as there was definitely no incest relations between shiro and sora and it's even talked about later on in the series. Once it is explained how they came together it makes sense on to why they are so close as they both have really sad back stories.
And besides that


So if this show turned you off specifically because of that I definitely would give it another try as it was very good but if you just didn't The show in general then I understand.

Hajime no Ippo..
The animation in the early episodes is extremely old and the artstyle is kinda weird

This anime is so cute on the outside, the opening was tooooo cute!!! But the entire plot was wrong!


To make things worse the fan work i've seen is EXTREMELY sadistic, Koutora's sadness knows no bounds. :,(


The first 10 or 11 minutes was the harshest emotional beat down i've experienced in this medium.


If it kept that up it would actually be a good anime

Kuroko basketball, thought it was going to be dull cos it's a sports anime.

Haruhi suzumiya, was going to drop it originally but after ep4, just blew me away, complete turn about of a show.

From the new world, actually gave this up once but it just seemed to go in 1 direction that wouldnt address the obscure events. Yet it got very complicated & interesting when I picked it up again. It is 1 that requires marathon watch, not 1 ep a week.

I really didn't like Madoka Magica for the first few episodes. Now it is one of my all time favorite series. Glad I stuck with it. :)

I was digging the premise. I like clever protagonists. Especially when games and mystery are involved. I think the situation was his sister who looks 7 (gross) was undressing or in a compromising pose and the brother blushes or something and says "must resist peeking". Ugh gross... Maybe I'm remembering it in an overly dramatic way. That kind of thing really bothers me. I'll give it another shot, thanks!

Episode 0 of Saekano would lead you to believe that it's a base echhi harem with nothing else to it. By episode 3 or 4 you should understand that it's more than that.
