The political/military conflict of the first season felt real. It wasn't hard to take it seriously. It was handled not all that much differently from how a good Gundam series would handle it.
Yes, the first season up until episode 20-ish wasn't bad at all, and I was actually hooked. Until the bad writing monster reared its ugly head and we started to get all sort of ridiculous plot devices, cliffhangers and characters that stopped making any sense whatsoever.

Code geass was something that could have been very entertaining if it weren't for plot devices, wall bangers and just plaion old ecchi fanservice that killed the series.

On the topic of Gurren Lagann and I'm not trying to bash the series here, but if it's a show not meant to be taken seriously, why were people so choked up and cried 'manly tears' over the deaths of certain characters? Heck I've heard of fans who claimed that it was a life changing experience watching that show.

Another thing that bugged me about the show is that it couldn't decide if it was a parody or if it was a drama.

Again, not bashing, just wondering why the fans say that it's a show not meant to be taken seriously when there are episodes where they do take it seriously.

Another anime I couldn't get into was Cowboy bebop. I've tried so hard to like the series, I really did, but I just couldn't get into it.

While it was well animated, I didn't like the character designs all that much. In addition, the plot was a little too episodic at times, making it hard for me to follow.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is Monster a somewhat popular series? This is another show I couldn't get into. Though I am thinking of giving it another chance...

Code Gayass Geass. I just don't like this show. I've tried watching it on Adult Swim but I just don't find anything appling about it. I mean, isn't basically Gundam Wing set in high school days? Ladouche Lalouch is an ass and I can't stand his English voice actor: Johnny Young Bouch. (HE SOUNDS THE SAME IN EVERYTHING HE DUBS!!! ) I just don't like this show. Well, I'm done ranting.

It's probably not meant to be taken all that seriously until the first major death... then the tone of the anime changes a lot. And the anime just gets more and more serious from that point on.

So, I took most of it as serious drama, myself. Only the first few episodes were pure goofing-off parody, imo.

I just plain couldn't get into Rurouni Kenshin. I only saw the first season, so maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance (Shishio seems pretty badass from clips I have seen), but I just could not get into the characters. Kenshin seemed wishy-washy to me and Kaoru and that kid were both annoying. Sanosuke was the only main character I liked even a little bit. Add that to the fact that the show was constantly pushing around its morality made watching it a rather tedious experience for me.

^ I like Kenshin but only the dubbed version. Girly-voiced main characters for the lose. :/

To Aru Majutsu no Index, the main character just pisses me off with his self righteous attitude and arrogance.

Hellsing, *shocks* Despite what most people may think, I don't believe tyhat Alucard is that badass but I think it is more because of hype if anything. Every cahracter in that manga is just badass that i get annoying to hear that they don't die especially Alucard who everyone knows will just comeback to some bull--- way because he is effectively indestructible. It ruins the suspension of disbelief knowing that Alucard will just comeback no matter what his enemies do, he was just willed out of existence and he still comes back.

Well the show was mostly a parody with a few serious episodes sprinkled in here and there.

Me either I don't know it just seemed to kind of drag on and after 6 episodes I had enough.

All Bakemonogatari fans, why is Bakemonogatari so great, sure, The characters look great, but the first few episodes made no sense at all, they talked and talked then this girl got cured of something, i'm just not following it

Higurashi, although it seems to be well-received, I couldn't even make it to the middle...although it does have a certain plot and uses normal/fun moments to support the horror atmosphere, the mood was alternated too fast too many times, it felt like watching something that wants to have everything in it instead of sticking to two or three types. Not to mention that everyone was crazy, it's no fun if there's nobody sane to explore the mystery.

Well, it's because Ryu07 want everything in his series. From serial murder, then he have some super-natural Shinto, about some dark tradition of this village. But not just stop there, he add some sci-fi feature like UFO or biological weapon, which make me so interesting to follow, but in the end everything so simple !
So I'm looking for more fantasy feature in his lastest series: Ookami kakushi !
btw, if every direct download anime community save some GB to hosting old, good anime instead of Bleach, Naruto or whatever long series, it's would be great !

I hated Toradora! Why? Because I hated the 2 main characters. A lot. Support characters on the other hand were quite good. But they don't matter in the end. The last couple of episodes were probably the most painful thing I've watched in anime. Tacked on drama to accommodate my hated characters.

But many like it. Why? Have no idea. Probably the stereotypical main female lead (which I hate).

I didn't find much to enjoy in Toradora either. Characters all felt rather superficial and cartoony, and the melodrama was quite overdone.
