Yuru Yuri - It had Yuri in the title, but there was no explicit Yuri in the first two episodes, or the entire series, it was only implied...

I was so disappointed.

But usually, only bad sequels of good shows are the only case that would cause high expectations followed by a downer.

Black Rock Shooter - I was excited to watch this one because of the trailer and I enjoyed the battle scenes. Although it really was incomplete and ended so fast. The concept was good but the story was just shallow.

Good ol' BRS. So much art/CG hype and Hatsune Miku music video etc. And then it was just about schoolgirls and not being awesome most of the time.

I came into Fooly Cooly expecting the best thing ever since reading some reviewers rant how amazing it was. I was totally underwhelmed. The series was still pretty good, but it just swept under me until the last couple episodes. I'm not sure if my scoring did it justice however, since I rated it under Toradora! :/

Shana III.

I'll watch to the end as I watched the first two seasons...but there is nothing like the feel of the last two in this one.

Shakugan no Shana III. I had so much hype for it then when I saw the first episode I didn't feel any excitement. Maybe it's because it's been a few years since I was really into Shana.

Air and Kanon. I was told they were excellent and very moving. However, none of that came into my mind and I was very bored.

Fate/Stay Night. Saber looked awesome and I thought the anime itself would be more interesting. Instead, I was disappointed with some ginger who believes people die when they are killed.

SnS3, dropped after 2 eps. Perhaps because I let the hype die away... might rewatch the first seasons
also, School Days.

Let's say Code Geass, I was expecting something really good especially since those first minutes of episode 1, but I dropped after watch first episode because I didnt understand what's going on and didnt like the graphics/design of characters, though I'm considering on give it a second chance due so high ratings and good comments

Mirai Nikki, Guilty Crown, and Un-go. I was looking forward to them, but ended up dropping all 3 after the first episode.

School Days, it was nothing I expected. But since I don't like coming off ignorant, once I start to watch an anime I will not drop it. So I finished it and still couldn't believe what I watched, I wouldn't say it was horrible just nothing I had in mind.

Vampire Knight. I was all like "Woah, vampire anime, it seems cool!" And it turned out being one of the worst shits I've been through in my life.
Agatha Christie no Meitantei Poirot to Marple disappointed me as well, because I love Agatha Christie's books and was expecting the anime to be as dark as them. Instead, they add a little girl with a duck.

Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Kira.

I'm not gonna lie, I gotta wait for the blood to go back to my head, but plot-wise, I don't feel compelled to take the story seriously at all.

@Vikusia1, lol what did you really expect from Rio: Rainbow Gate?

Gosick: I expected a good mystery involving ghost stories and maybe some real supernatural stuff, but got an annoying loli making wild guesses or masterfully reaching obvious conclusions while everyone else stares in awe.
At least the scenery was still great.
Last Exile 2: I dared to hope the new main cast wouldn't ruin the show for me and if it was Fam and Giselle alone, they actually wouldn't have. But even if I could ignore Millia, the aerial fights in the new series make so little sense, it's impossible to feel any tension at all. And without tension to offset the slice of life parts, I really can't ignore Millia.

High School of the dead.

It was pure, absolute shit. Convoluted. A half-ass attempt to keep the original plot in place while doing everything they can to show cleavage.

I ended up hating it, so I did the one thing I could do and dropped it.

Angel Beats, and C3. I was impressed by the summary and reviews, but it was complete crap. I can't believe I managed to finished both of them.

Seto no Hanayome. I heard it was great and that it was the "funniest anime ever"...what I got was a generic plot line, and too much yelling/beating to enjoy. Plus, it wasn't funny at all, so I didn't bother continuing it.

Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. I loved the first season, and thought this would be similar, but it was filled with the same jokes and experiences, just with different people and places. I've been stuck on episode 8 for over a year now.

Gurren Lagann...the first episode was okay, then fell into a pile of crap and became testosterone for eight year old boys.

Okay, I've got one - Last Exile: The story of Fam

The 2003 series of Last exile was fantastic, so I had high hopes for the new series. It has crushed my hopes.

Yuru Yuri - I was expecting more Yuri.

Guilty Crown - My hopes were crushed as soon as we met Shu in episode 1.

FLCL - People said to me "This anime is awesome, incredible etc..." - I thought it was shit.

Gundam 0079 - I normally love space operas and sci-fi mecha stuff, and I stuck it out to ep 11 (though the first 2 eps were certainly a disappoint too), but I hate the main soooo much and the series is just way too predictable. I'm not convinced that it's worth sticking it out just for Char (whom I can understand why people like him, he is pretty boss). And as for teens running a ship, well Infinite Ryvius spoiler me on that by having them actually act like teens and be interesting characters, it's like everything has been done so much better since that 0079 is primitive but not in a fun way, in a tedious way.

not realy a "wow i need to watch this" anime but after a lot of people saying how funny it was i started this seasons "Danshi Koukousei No Nichijou" and halfway in i was still wondering when i would become funny.

but generaly i would give it a fighting chance (hell i even made it to episode 6 for maken ki before i kicked it the the dropped pile) but this i'm just letting go and won't bother again.

This I really wanted to see how it all started, but I'm trying to force myself to watch anymore. I don't like Amuro in this one he is way better in the sequels imo.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes- I heard good things about it and looked at how high it was rated so I decided to watch it, but its so boring. I did hear it picks up near or in the 30s so I'll stick with it until the halfway point before passing final judgement on it on wither I will drop or stay with it.

In the last season at least, Shana III is exceptionally guilty of that...it's nowhere near as good as it's been hyped to be.

I'm still waiting for it to get "good" yet. =(
