Will not finish Rating Comment
Bleach (TV) Good
Flowers of Evil (TV) Good I really "appreciate" this show, it tries great things, it's daring and weird... unfortunately it is also supremely uncomfortable, and I have a personal; problem with that. I just can't bear to see these realistic characters go through anguish and humiliation like this.
Kaleido Star (TV) Decent
Kill Me Baby (TV) Decent I've seen half of it, it's not bad. If I'm bored and it's handy I may finish it. This would have made a very good short gag series of 3-12 minute long lengths. But 22 minutes is somehow just too long to commit to such middling humor.
Naruto (TV) Decent
Strike Witches 2 (TV) Decent Just edited this in. But forgetting to include it in this list is appropriate as I eventually basically forgot to keep watching it. It's incredible how they just kept repeating the same things from the first season. There was nothing original going on in the show and because all of the character progression happened in the first series you couldn't even count on character growth. They were the same characters doing the same things in a slightly different place... and though they were all a year or so older- they even looked the same.
Urusei Yatsura (TV) Decent
Yutori-chan (ONA) Decent
Zatch Bell (TV) Decent
Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo (TV) So-so
Jinki:Extend (TV) So-so
(The) Knight in the Area (TV) So-so I can't believe I didn't drop this earlier, the animation and art is poor, the characters are cliched, it rips off better shows liberally, much of it just doesn't make sense... yet I watch a full 13 episodes? It's it so bad its good? Am I just a sucker for the plucky band of kids doing their "best"? Is it just because there was nothing else on on Friday?
Maburaho (TV) So-so
Ninja Nonsense (TV) So-so
No. 6 (TV) So-so I probably won't finish this show because I simply cannot see it ending well. I stopped after an episode that promised to be a information dump failed to really explain much and instead added more mystery, confused the logic of the world, added a seemingly ludicrous magical element and confirmed this show will be woefully incomplete unless you read the source novels or they make a few more seasons. It does look very good and, although the main pair have some annoying characteristics, the characters do have some good emotional moments.
Parasyte -the maxim- (TV) So-so
Trinity Blood (TV) So-so
Yu Yu Hakusho: Ghost Files (TV) So-so
Afro Samurai (TV) Not really good
Aria the Scarlet Ammo (TV) Not really good
Blessing of the Campanella (TV) Not really good
C³ (TV) Not really good I found myself a couple weeks behind and simply uninterested in continuing. It's not hortrible but I find the tone shifts to sudden and jarring and while the tone shifts between moe-girl love fest and psycho-girl cat-fights sort of mean you're watching two shows in one, both halfs demonstrate remarkable repetitiveness. Two non-lolis, two big breasted bashful girls, two dolls, the new villainess reminds me a lot the first one- minus the swearing. And it's not like any of it is all that great in it's parts either- it's a standanrd moe girl group and standard slightly dark stuff.
Happy Lesson (OAV) Not really good
Maken-Ki! Battling Venus (TV) Not really good
Mirage of Blaze (TV) Not really good
Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok (TV) Not really good
Omamori Himari (TV) Not really good I really wish I hadn't watched as much of this show as I did. (first 7 + last episode to confirm my suspicions) Every character is a stock character, every situation is painfully predictable. Art and Animation is nothing to be impressed about and the rampant fan service was poorly executed (for instance: loli-looking Rei-clone rubs naked body on seriously injured hero in order to heal him with her water based demon powers... are you supposed to be aroused by 12-year old looking naked girl? or concerned for critically wounded character?.... or just disturbed by every aspect? that last one.)
Sengoku Collection (TV) Not really good It was the Masamune episode that did me in, it makes no sense, even with the hastily built and crappy world they've set up where the moe warriors appear in an alternate future world. if that was an example of the shows “serious” story-telling, it deserves the trash bin. I actually kind of liked the moe girl presentation, and the Michael Moore spoof was weirdly entertaining. But there isn’t a chance I’m watching more of the show.
When They Cry - Higurashi (TV) Not really good
Wild Arms - Twilight Venom (TV) Not really good
Blood-C (TV) Weak I got through more than half of it but what I saw was weak and repetitive. It was simply a mistake making this into a series. From what I watched this could be pretty good at half it’s length and possibly quite good if condensed into movie length. Everything I've hear about the pointlessly gory ending and disregard for any character you may have at one time liked pretty much assures I'll never finish it.

Rainbow - Nisha Rokubō no Shichinin (TV) It could have been so good. It could have been a good, gritty and serious look at a dark post-war period. But it turned out cheesy and populated by shallow caricatures of noble and scruffy shonen and sadistic bad guys going through the motions in painfully melodramatic situations.
