Now that I've seen a lot of anime, looking back, Naruto kind of sucked too. WWWAAAY 2 many fillers. Especially since I forced myself to watch about 20 eps. a dayyyy... And some emotional aspects of it were kind of stupid too. What the characters were crying about should have been worth crying about, but somehow, these parts made me laugh at their stupidity instead. (Perhaps I have strange taste though, Tsukuyomi Full Moon made me cry every episode even though most of it wasnt even sad)

Bobobo(on and on) just looked stupid to me. Mindless...

D.N. Angel was a fav of my friends, and I just did not understand why either. Probably because the characters were so young, and I didn't really get the plot. Not that I finished the series... That's the only series that I really started watching that I never finished. (gives me the chillls) I understood what the whole story was about, I guess, but never why I should care! I mean shouldnt an anime draw you in and make you actually care about what happens to the character? Its for your enjoyment!!

Ai Yori Aoshi made me so mad I wanted to kill the computer through all 24 episodes. (luckily i finished it in two days, start to finish.) This probably was just due to my taste, though because I realllly wanted Kaoru to end up with Tina. Or basically anyone other than STUPID AOI! I don't like shows with perfect people. Perfect people do not make an interesting story! They make a perfectly boring story! And everything was extremely predictable, there was practically no suspense, a little perverted humor here and there was the only enjoyable part of it. (not that im a pervert, the story line simply didnt entertain me.) Kaoru freaked out at like every little sign of romance, its a ROMANTIC COMEDY!!! I expected more ROMANCE!! and The show was completely generic, just like every other harem except they took out the wonderful part of harem, THE CHOICE!! THE GUY IS SUPPOSED TO HAVE TO CHOOOSE BETWEEN TONS OF WOMEN!!! But noooo he started and ended with Aoi. Sure there were tons of women who all lived in the same house as him (sounds interesting, perfect opportunity to make a great story out of betrayal!) But they were friends for life. GRRRR.... totally didnt live up to my friends recommendation. I guess its not the most popular thing, but it was enjoyed by my friends surprisingly.

I'm verry sorry for ranting, but I really feel that way about the show. And I did give an explanation y i hated it...

I am about to watch Onegai Teacher, so I'll take the advice I read on this thread and not watch Onegai Twins. Hope that lives up to the hype. I hoooopppee.....
Let's see... DN Angel's anime storyline did not end with the anime. It is continued in the PS2 game. Yes, it's a money-making scheme (and I've never played the game myself), but you might want to check it out.

Also, DN Angel was highly rated because of two kids: Irino Miyu and Miyamoto Shunichi (who sang some songs for the series).

As for AYA, read the manga. It gives a much convincing explanantion of why Kaoru gets Aoi in the end. Besides,
1) Chika-chan with Kaoru? I'm getting attacked by Pedobear there.
2) Tina with Kaoru is plausible. Just didn't work out.
3) In the manga, at least, Aoi isn't perfect. She does get jealous with the other girls.
