    Default Name a surprisingly good anime

    I'm talking about anime (or manga I guess) that might otherwise fly under our radar because from the first episode or from the advertising blurb the serious would seem weak.

    Elfen Lied and Naruto wouldn't fit in here because they're rather famous and acclaimed (and Elfen Lied comes out of the gate at full throttle instead of slowly building up).

    My example would be School Days. The blurb and first episode or two make it seem like just another kinda slow moving romantic type anime. However after a while it changes direction and is not only good but rather unique as far as I know.

    Also it seems to be one of the few anime with an associated meme.



    Yeah it's OK if you don't get it before watching and then maybe doing a little googling. Not that funny at any rate, but fun for occasionally sliding in Nice Boat comments to refer to something.

    Im not sure how popular or well known Godannar is, but I was suprised to find that I actually enjoyed it.

    Not great by any means, but suprisingly decent.

    Desert Punk On the first episode I found myself thinking, "Why did I rent this? Total crap in every aspect.". I kept on watching past the first few, and found that it actually got a hell of a lot better.

    Berserk...is one of the best anime I have ever see, its oldschool, and I must warn you that it was cut off, in the best part of the story haha... they didnt finish the anime or manga I think. But Really is one of the best I have ever seen and not a lot of people have watched it...

    Also Escaflowne, is not that popular, I think it gives you like a first bad impression, just watch 2 or 3 episodes and you would love it!

    Oooh I forgot about that. I'll second that. If it hadn't been recomended to me I would have stopped watching Desert Punk halfway through the first episode. But ultimately I watched it all the way to the end.


    And if what you want is a typical happy romantic anime School Days is not for you.

    If you've found yourself asking questions like "How can that guy be so aggrevatingly shy and awkard after all this time with women," "What if the lead protagonist didn't turn everyone else down," or "How can the girls let the guy string them along like that?" Than School Days could be for you.

    Anyone ever hear of Fantastic Children? That one is a pretty good anime, it looks horrible at first glance, but is actually good, I never thought I would like the show, until I got a dvd of it and watched it.

    I was reallly surprised by Heroic Age. It was something that I set the bar low for because I had just gotten done with a good anime. Then it just amazed me

    Azumanga Daioh, I first saw the anime before all the hype overwhelmed the internet. Look at the synopsis of the series and try to tell me it actually sounds good.

    And as for Revolutionary Girl Utena, oh my god the synopsis of it sounds mediocre and nothing like the incredible mind screw that it is.

    I don't know if it is anime but I started reading the magna fairy tail at first it seemed kind of ordinary but as I read on I've really liked it. By the way the magna for berserk is still on going I think book 25 comes out next month.

    Ef - A Tale of Memories was good. After the first episode I wasn't sure if I should bother watching the rest or not, but I'm glad I did.
