I actually don't understand people who will drop something 2-3 episodes in and say they didn't like it. It's like watching the first 5 minutes of a movie, and then yelling out in the middle of the theater: "THIS MOVIE IS ASS!"
If your still bored by episode 10, I will apologize
Wait a sec, if there are 12 eps in a (short) season, then we should suffer through most of it because why now? I've sat through plenty of bad anime and in the end there were far better shows that I could have been spending that time on. Being 32 makes me about 75 years old in otaku years. It isn't like the old days when there were 5 anime tapes at the local Blockbuster and that was it. At that time it was what they had or nothing so people sat through some shit just for the fact it was anime. Remember Angel Cop anyone? Yeah. Like that. In fact, here, enjoy it condensed. (SO NSFW)
Even in the anime subculture, I find that my tastes are unique. There are a lot of "classic" and popular shows (that won't die) that I'm not particularly fond of. Like Death Note. But I won't get into that.
Anime I am watching: (some of this is old because I watch it with the local anime club and we only do a few eps every two weeks). We recently finished Kemeko DX. The ending was not great but what a fun show.
Anyway, currently watching Kaasan~ Mom's Life, Air Gear, Nodame Cantabile Finale, Kimi Ni Todoke, Hanamaru Kindergarten
Need to catch up on: Ristorante Paradiso, Heroman, Saki (may just start this one over from the beginning because I forgot the Riichi mahjong rules)
Plan to watch: Working!! Gankutsuou (only saw a couple eps, love the style)
If there is a slice of life anime or josei anime I probably like it, or at least give it a chance. (note: slice of life, not moeblob). It pains me what happened to seasons 2 & 3 of Minami Ke. Also my love for Tenchi Muyo knows no bounds (but not the space police spinoffs and certainly not Tenchi In Tokyo)
Oh hey Manic Maverick, read the manga for D Gray Man if you can. It reaches EPIC levels of awesome. The author isn't afraid to kill people. Lots of them. And torture the rest. Millenium Earl is a bad, bad man.
