Will not finish Rating Comment▲
Princess Tutu (TV) - dropped, seen 2. Terrific anime, but not for me.
Shakugan no Shana (TV) - suspended, done 4. No judgement - waiting for complete release.
My-HiME (TV) - suspended, done 6. Tragedy keeps ramping up, so...
Brighter than the Dawning Blue (TV) - suspended, done 7. This is not very hopeful... Feena is tremendous, her man provides a good back-up, but the show overall is weak. A rare jewel of OP.
Noein - to your other self (TV) - suspended, seen 4. Patchwork of stolen elements. Crazy production list. Curious pencil art on main characters. Team Rocket FTW.
Strike Witches 2 (TV) - suspended, seen 4. The supposed fanservice is still awful.
[email protected]: XENOGLOSSIA (TV) - suspended, seen 8. Mai-HiME + mecha, only better; but no good love. Nyoro~n. "The girlmecha thing" is becoming a main theme gradually.
Hidamari Sketch (TV) abandoned, seen 8. A nice 4-koma adaptation, but the integration is not at Azumanga level. It's more like a Lucky Star without otakuism. Pathetic animation did me in.
Blue Gender (TV) Action flick, post-acopaliptic world, love story. A solid midfielder.
Kanon (TV 1/2002) Weak All girls are defective (expect the main one perhaps).
Pani Poni Dash! (TV) Becky is not sympathetic at all. I fail to see the attraction of the story. The art was awesome, but...
His and Her Circumstances (TV) Good Begining was nice, so I'm glad to stop after about 6 eps.
Ai Yori Aoshi (TV) So-so Cannot be given a consistent rating: first two eps are excellent, then series degenerates into a b-list harem. Aoi is lovely and powerful, but she can't carry the show by herself when the story stinks so much.
Haganai (TV) Not really good Creepy in anime form. Just play the game where it is appropriate.
School Rumble (TV) Dropped after 4. Very straightforward. Good jokes in theory, but nothing else.
Black Lagoon (TV) Dropped, seen 3. Most beautiful 2D animation ever, better than most features. Unknown if story goes anywhere.
Angel Tales (TV) Dumb, but oddly engaging. Still, dumber than Futakoi.
FLCL (OAV) Dumb. Overhyped. Excel Saga wannabe. If you have to break the 4th wall, you have exhausted other options, and you lose.
Mission-E (TV) Electric women kick hapless men's butts in this androphobic fantasy for feminists.
Fairy Tail (TV) Good Excellent fighting shonen, but creators did not know when to stop.
Chihayafuru (TV) Great production values, but the main love triangle was disappointing. The pretty guy is a total jerk. Arata and Chihaya are disturbed.
Arjuna (TV) Hateful environmentalist propaganda packaged into an anime: no, thanks. Good music though.
Cowboy Bebop (TV) I might have seen all actually, but I can't even remember now. I was so tired by the end... Thank god it's over. Next!
Rune Soldier (TV) I wanted to finish this some time ago, but I was told it hasn't got much of anything. Sort of like Scrapped Princess.
Yukikaze (OAV) I'm an airplane nut, but this is too silly even for me.
Love Hina (TV) If they resolved the story in 13 episodes, it would be something. The iconic harem comedy which stopped being iconic. Watch Zero no Tsukaima instead if you're into harem.
Trigun (TV) Lots of people ask me to re-evaluate this silly space western, so the jury is out. But it's LONG.
Yowamushi Pedal (TV) Massively didactic, insufferable setup. Then turns into an endless shounen sports anime with battle after battle.
Ranma ½ (TV) Decent Might be all right in 26 ep, but milked to death over 7 seasons.
EX-Driver (OAV) Neat flick for dumb little boys. Roll-bar broke, my foot.
Kodocha (TV) Nice production, not my taste.
Sakura Wars (TV) Not as nasty as its companion movie. Pays attention to characters.
Angel Beats! (TV) So-so Not the best way to model purgatory. Pointlessly violent. Quit at Mabu Tofu episode as a high point, figured Jun Maeda cannot do any better even working for Seiji Kishi.
Allison & Lillia (TV) Nothing more than a modern teen adventure story in a pseudo-historic setting.
Heat Guy J (TV) Poorly made, silly cop story. And look at those gigantic noses! Van and Hitomi are getting envious now.
Scrapped Princess (TV) So-so Raging mediocrity is the motto of this series.
Yu Yu Hakusho: Ghost Files (TV) Ruined by the power inflation. Good action up until the end of the tournament, but then creators should've jumped into a well.
Dominion Tank Police (OAV) So-so Seen on pirate cable back in early 90s, it was ordinary even back then.
Please Teacher! (TV) Silly and boring.
(The) Irresponsible Captain Tylor (TV) Slapstick is not my cup.
Inuyasha (TV) Starts well, but how many goddamn shards are there?!
Mushi-Shi (TV) So-so The most boring anime ever. Loved by many, however.
Carried by the Wind: Tsukikage Ran (TV) The sake-drinking chick is actually pretty funny, but they should've given this a story.
Bodacious Space Pirates (TV) So-so The supposed growth of Marika was boresome. Chiyaki was okay.
Tales of Symphonia the Animation (OAV) The worst of game-based anime.
Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs (TV) This was an extremely rare case when the deep rework for American market was better than the Japanese original. Jessie's treachery was the only good storyline in the whole thing.
Upotte!! (ONA) Too nasty.
Initial D: Extra Stage 2: Tabidachi no Green (OAV) Way to trample the franchize into the dirt.
ToHeart - Remember my memories (TV) Weak and ponderous.
Gravion (TV) Weak Weak writing and campiness ruined the show. It's not even good when considered as a parody.
Tenshi no Shippo Chu! (TV) What a disaster. Watch the original instead.
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (TV) 3D was annoying, worse than in WHR.
