I watched an anime because someone recommended it to me.

Bad idea.

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi.

The ending is just SO LAME, it made me facepalm, take away the headphones off my head and minimize the web browser.

You did three things wrong:

1. Wrong thread ... ?
2. STREAM! NO!
3. ?

Watched Higashi no eden only because it's opening is a song created by Oasis. I still think the opening is the only good thing about the anime, I don't see how it's able to score so high i thought it was quite boring and predictable.

I watched Dragon Ball Z (well, mostly Kai until I got up-to-date, then took off with Z from there) for the first time a year ago because all of my friends liked it and I felt excluded whenever they talked about it (which was very often).

I'm currently Highschool DxD cuz of bewbs.

I dropped Clannad after episode 1 because of the chibi faces with the massive eyes and tiny mouth. Was a serious turn off.

Few years later I picked it up again. Clannad AS was really good.

i will probably never start watching OP because i dont want to start a 400+ ep anime x.x

and i refuse to watch any mahou shoujo/sports anime

but if an anime have the tag "romance" or "ecchi" i will probably watch it

that is how i ended up watching clannad after story... i couldn't watch all the last episodes, because it was too damn sad.( i watched the first serie while it was airing on japan), and because of after story nowadays i try to avoid drama animes

I refused to watch Eureka Seven because of a "surfer mecha". Big mistake, Eureka Seven is good.

I refuse to watch REDLINE because of the hype. No, not just because of the hype, but because of the specific sources of the hype. It's being hyped by members of the moe/otaku-hating cabal, like AnimeNewsNetwork, ColonyDrop, and Anime World Order. Since these places are dedicated not just to spreading hate for the types of anime I like, but also dedicating to denigrating fans like me, our lifestyles, and our tastes, I don't trust their exuberant recommendations.

I watched Quiz Magic Academy, because I wanted to see an anime that starts with a Q. I'm dead serious.

Rofl! Were you trying to have watched at least one anime of each letter of the alphabet? It doesn't seem too weird. I started branching out when I realized that almost a third of the anime I watched started with the letter "a"(I wonder why that is..lol)

Yeah, but I don't have time to look up how good the actual animation for an anime is, so I base it off of the thumbnail pictures of an anime series I see when I look it up. If the art isn't appealing, I skip out on it. Sad thing is, the thumbnail usually doesn't show how good the animation or story can be.

This is a big example. I almost skipped this series due to this picture.

I refuse to watch Escaflowne because of the way the characters' noses are drawn. Those noses drive me insane. I just want to fix them. I'm not even joking.

I refuse to finish gurren lagaan because my favorite character died on episode 8
And I refuse to finish heroic age because it got to dramatic and preachy.

How bout that spoiler you just dropped, eh?

Also, if you know that, then that means that you've watched it, more or less. That kinda goes against the thread's question.

I chose to watch Seikon No Qwaser because the plot was insane enough to be entertaining, which it was.

I refuse to watch Naruto even though it looks like it might be a decent show just because the main character has WHISKERS. I'll never get over a character like him having whiskers...Ever.

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

The first 10 mins showed about 3 characters? As far as their outfits go think DOA Volleyball meets Soul Caliber. The clothes are mostly medieval with a sexy twist.
