Lol, Angel Beats!'s satisfaction's higher than its expectation factor.
It only went downhill after episode 3 for me.
Go K-ON!! and Working!!.

Ofcourse it's first, best from Spring list, in my opinion.
Mby it's a bit overrated here on MAL but i enjoyed it, so it doesn't matter.
But K-On doesn't deserve it's place that high, i enjoyed 1st season a bit, but seeing second one i dropped it after 2nd ep, fed up with moe s***.
Working was good, waiting for 2nd season.

Angel Beats! doesn't deserve all of the praise it's been getting. It's one of the most disappointing anime I've ever seen.
I was expecting an exciting action drama from PA Works. Something like CANAAN. And that's what I got the first 2-3 episodes. Then it turned into an awkward comedy with jokes that felt misplaced with flat underdeveloped characters and some okay action scenes. Also, everyone suddenly got moe-ified. What's with Yuri turning into a fucking tsundere at the end and
OUT OF FUCKING NOWHERE?!
God, so disappointing.
Also, the plotholes were endless. It doesn't make any sense at all. It's rating makes me lol. 8,50. Are you serious? Ugh.

tl;dr: Angel Beats! is a huge disappointment.




I enjoyed it 'cause i didn't expect too much from it anyway, at first seeing KEY, making another work got me kinda excited, but reading all the comments made me think twice.

But it was too damn short, all they did was introduce people with 2-3 character pasts, leaving so many behind, even that angel, 13eps wasn't enough, it ended so fast missing so many things. Just hope Ova fills some of that hole.

/facepalm at Kaichou wa Maid-sama at #10, even below Mayoi Neko. How did Mayoi Neko even make top 10, lol


Maid-sama! deserved to be higher. The only thing I liked about Mayoi Neko Overrun! was their Saki-style Jenga episode, and that had nothing to do with the series.

Not surprised at Angel Beats! and K-ON!!. I admit that I did enjoy Angel Beats and thought that it had it's brilliant moments, but could have worked out better if there were more episodes. K-ON! is no longer about music.



Agree

I'm happy to see Working up there.
As for Angel Beats, I did enjoy it, but there was something oh so wrong about it.
Seriously, surprised to see it #1.

Angel Beats was pretty good the first 11 episodes, but the last two episodes = totally random bullshit crap last minute made episodes with random comedy and random revelations.

Angel Beats! wtf.
I was expecting a lot, but now that I've started AB! it makes me only want to close the video, break the computer and get a life.



Then why not do it? :)


And what about RAINBOW, it deserves place somewhere in the top, kinda dissapointed.

Jul 1, 2010 6:03 PM by SLIPLV

Oh Japan, you slay me.

Jul 1, 2010 4:44 PM by kadian1365

Yeah. Angel Beats is probably the second or third worst show I have watched this season. It had potential, but the directing was poor. Kaichou wa Maid-sama and Heroman are the only contenders to go below it.

Oh, and all of this ranking talk is including B Gata H Kei as well, by the way. At least that makes for a good guilty pleasure if nothing else. I only started that one today, as I was unsure about it at the time of airing (it was drawing comparisons with Seto no Hanayome, which I didn't like at all when I tried watching it), but I gave it a shot and I enjoyed it (the first episode, anyway).

How Angel Beats made it to first place is beyond me

Jul 1, 2010 12:15 PM by Confucius

interesting to see all my watching is in there,~
Angel Beats! no.1? cant say anything but Durarara!! is better as well, I think they desserve a higher rank, also Arakawa Under the Bridge.

ehm.

what's the thing in the brackets?

*7, (18) Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei

Good seeing Yojouhan so much higher than it's expectation rating.

Jul 1, 2010 9:37 AM by Sohei

Nice. Angel Beats! on top. I think it gets what it deserves.
I can see why Kaichou wa Maid-sama went lower though. It was pretty interesting but after episode 9... not so anymore.

AB! and K-On!! on top, huh? I guess the mind of the western anime fanbase works in reverse. Not that it's such a bad thing, but just saying.

Jul 1, 2010 5:48 AM by Oujidere

maybe cuz it started up average and after episode 9 it became stupid/pointless

Jul 1, 2010 5:03 AM by supersayen

glad to see some of my faves in this list!!

*5, (*3) Durarara!!
*6, (*4) Arakawa Under the Bridge
10, (20) Kaichou wa Maid-sama!
*3, (*3) Working!!

but y was kaichou wa maid-sama ranked so low?

Jul 1, 2010 4:43 AM by new2anime

Surprised that Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou ranked that high! It's a show I wished I didn't watch :(

Also surprised that Kaichou wa Maid-sama! was ranked so low o_o Imma would have thought otaku-culture would dig the tsundere/maid-cosplay theme of it, thus pushing up its ratings... oh well...

Angel Beats was a blast and deserves it's #1. I hope we get another one.

Except top 2 and loli neko overrun, overall agreeing with the satisfactory rankings.

Ookami-san + seven friends = Taiga + Arararararagi + Kuroku Narator = win
