Oh yes the ending of Mai Hime!

It might not be fair to judge a series based on its ending but it honestly ruined the series for me. It's still one of my favorite OSTs by Yuki Kajiura though

I thought the ending was the only good part. Well okay, it and either ep 15 or 16 (whichever had that school raid).

Mai HiME was one of my favourite and first anime series. The reason is simple, I liked the idea in second half.
Spoiler for spoilers:


I hate when people call it magical girl show because it looks nothing like one. Mai Otome does and I'm not big fan of those series but Mai HiME is unique for me. It doesn't give me a typical Magical girl feel. It has nice action, entertaing cast of characters, amazing soundtracks and good build up.

In no way are those series perfect but they are good, especially for something that is considered "magical girl" show that annoy me.

Ending did wish to be better.


Madoka Magica for me is an improved version of Mai HiME. If HiME series had similar ending, it would've been so much better.

Madoka Magica is different from typical magical girl shows because instead of being cute it has a lot of dark and psychological themes going on. It has dark and depressing moments, characters die and we don't have an all happy end. I also like animation style for when witches appear, I think it is very unique and of course great sound tracks. For me Madoka is a breath of fresh air when it comes to Magical Girl shows which are all fluffy and happy.

Once again it is not perfect and needs some improvements but over all it provided something new and engaging for me.

Didn't like Nanoha season 1. Madoka clearly borrowed some ideas from there but executed them 10 times better. Nanoha simply didn't click with me and despite trying to be dark it never was.

HST, but something tells me this is one of those things where half is hate and half is love.

Cowboy Bebop. Yes, Spike was a bad ass...past that the whole show was horrid. Edward (Red haired kid) didn't make it any better. I even watched 12 episodes to see what was so good.

Was it the worst anime ever? No, not even close. Is it as good as people say? No, not even close.

I liked the movie a lot though.

Fate series - I don't hate this franchise, in fact I can see the appeal it has towards others, however my sole experience with the series is the Fate arc of the original visual novel and I just found it incredibly dull. When I think about it, the concept of a war between magicians and their familiars is hardly a unique concept either and it really did nothing to stand out for me, so I'd say it qualifies here.

Monogatari series - I have a very love/hate relationship with this franchise. On the one hand, the visual style keeps me baffled and intrigued all the time so I'm compelled to watch every new installment. However there's a statement I've read before that plainly calls it "artsy smut", and when you really get down to it that's largely what it is. The real appeal of the franchise people seem to find escapes me.

Negima! - The main reason I don't like this is that it's just not my thing. A very large female cast with none I really like and I don't think the male main character is very cool. The only thing I really found interesting was the "Neo Pactio" concept from the "Negima?!" spin-off, but considering that's from a spin-off the exposure is unfortunately very minimal.

To quote one of my earlier posts:

Quote:
The only positive I'd give this series is that I at least like it's concept of a zombie, which is way more unique compared to other things I have seen. Otherwise it's shit. I couldn't care less about the characters and I rarely find it funny.
I will concur Ayumu was the best thing about the show for the most part, but after the second season pretty much everything I liked about him disappeared and therefore he can't hold up the series for me anymore like he originally did in the first.

Pretty much anything that's made by Visual Arts/Key *prepared to get lynched*. Well, Angel Beats was decent but rushed.

I hate Haruhi (yet I endured Endless Eight on a dare... I still bear trauma from that), Oreimo and OreShura, all for the same reason -

- An annoying main (female) character that has no (in my opinion) redeeming points that make them interesting to me in the slightest. Even if the supporting cast is good, I just can't bear to watch an anime where the title character annoys the hell out of me, since those are bound to get a lot of screentime.

lol You disliked it so much you forced it out of your memory.

Alas, I do remember it, and I disliked it too. I don't want to get into spoilers here, so let's just say that I felt the ending was totally off-key moodwise given the dozen or so episodes that came before it.
Funny thing is, I rewatched Mai-HiME a couple of years after I first saw it expecting to have issues with the ending... and didn't actually find it all that bad. :lol: Now its one of my all time favorite anime series, something I hadn't really expected it to become back when I was first introduced to it.

Your mileage may vary however.

I'm going to tell Qwaser of Stigmata was my first ongoing series I watched in its entirety. I also started reading the manga version of it, and I found the anime to be quite good despite only mostly following the manga's story (season 1 at least). I liked the darker aspects of it, since I was looking for a show to follow the same aspects as my previously loved harem manga, Negima!. The second season seriously dissapointed me a lot, and while the concept of the first half was pretty good, it goes downhill later and the ending makes me want more so much I even started reading the other manga chapters, and there's not even a hint of announcement concerning the future anime plans. I'll admit that if I rewatched it, I'd just dismiss as a average high-tier ecchi show with little redeeming value, but even with that, I will hold to my precious memories of it.

I dunno...
For me there is a certain appeal in not holding back when it comes to movies.
So many others are on the fanservice train too, but they all try to maintain a facade of being something else. Usually leads to a bland and boring experience.

Qwaser does not do that. It is totally open about being a perverted show and it uses the freedom gained from this to do things in more awesome and extreme way. I respect it for that.

btw. Qwaser is not the only show like this.
I'd say you can rougly divide all fanservice shows into two categories, based on how hones they are with themselves.

honest, mostly awesome:
Qwaser
Hagure Yuusha no Estetica
Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou
Sora no Otoshimono
Highschool DxD
Queens Blade

not honest, usually boring:
Infinite Stratos
all shows containing "Onii-chan" in the title
all shows containing "Imouto" in the title
Medaka Box
Dog Days
Ebiten
lots of other shows that are easily forgotten

Everyone loves Seikon no Qwaser? Unless I had a very bad acid trip I just can't unsee that statement.

Back to topic while I already mentioned this but I just want to make a comparison between SnQ with School Days, a shitty anime that almost everyone loves, for very, very bad reason.

I was under the impression that School Days is WIDELY hated...
And people who like it, only love the final episode.

I only watched 8 minutes of the ending.... the only part of the series I ever watched. Though I'm glad about ending "execution" of the anime * laughs hard, overrall it's garbage as a romance theme anime... IMHO

Dunno if I would say that "everyone seems to like" Seikon no Qwasar, though.... :\

At least, like School Days, that was definitely _not_ my impression.
