ITT, shows you really, really wanted to like but in the end, couldn't.

I wanted Dragonaut to be the next Godannar.
But it was.
I wanted Godannar to be the next GaoGaiGar. Instead it was "HOLY SHIT GUY, BOOBS! " followed by "OUR ROBOTS HAVE BOOBS!" and "EIKEN AIN'T GOT NOTHING ON US!".
Planetes. Manga is fucking awesome, the anime is horeshit.

Blue Drop. They could have done SO MUCH with the source material. Aliens turn Earth into Vichy France? Awesome. Lesbians having kids with aliens? Awesome. So what do we get? 12 episodes of yuri fanservice and hardly any worthwhile content

We need more mecha shows where the robots themselves had tits.

The robots in Godannar were so fucking hot.

Romeo and Juliet is an extremely difficult story to fuck up. When it all comes down to it, it's the archetypal star crossed lovers story. How hard is it to adapt it? Add to that what I found to be a stellar first episode, follow it with epic failure, and we've got a true case of LOL GONZO on our hands ("LOL JULIET IS NOW A TREE! LOL NOBLE SACRIFICE!" way to miss the point, smart guys).

It's not like these guys haven't burned me out before, but this one really hit me the worst.
I bet Shakespeare would've been like "HOLY SHIT, A TREE? THAT'S GENIUS" if he was alive.
I really wanted to like Romeo and Juliet too. It was shakespeare with an Escaflowne vibe. Should have been awesome on so many levels.

Some of the fights were cool (if brief), and the last episode was great...but yeah, I still liked it but it could have been much better.

Framing the main story around the plot-within-a-plot of an insomniac 16 year-old girl's badly-written play was not a particularly good choice.

when they DIDN'T get together in ep 10. That was the start of filler hell. And then when they finally got together in episode 17, nothing actually happened
Gunbuster and Kaiji

Which is funny since I really liked Diebuster and Kaiji

Compares even worse than Berserk does to its original manga.

I don't dislike it. I just don't enjoy it that much. Maybe I'm just going through a noncomedy faze.
