Major - I'm not too familiar with the rules of baseball, so I thought I wouldn't care much for this show. But after watching a few episodes of the series, I began to like it for its plot. Eventually, I became a fan, though I still need to understand the game of baseball to appreciate the series better.

Ippo (the boxing one loved it)
I also loved Hunter x Huner. I was on the fence about it cause I thought they were going to hunt monsters.... Gon however was possible one of the best anime characters ever. He is carefree and confindent plus he always seems to get the point that they are testing in all the hunter exams. He also is able to think outside the box and come up with interesting solutions.
The other anime is Intial D. It is kind of old school and I wasn't big into racing anime. This show changed my perpective on cars and Japan's street racing. (I blame Tokyo Drift for my preconcieved notions...) The series was great and it even got me looking at Impreza WRXs when I was looking for a new car....
Death is just the next great adventure.

One Piece. Looked too childish for my taste but I ended up getting a real kick out of it.

I didn't like the first few episodes so I discontinued watching. Then one time, I was watching animax. I wasn't really sure what was airing so I kept watching. Then I was surprised that it was Gurren Lagann. So then, when it aired again, I watched from beginning to end and it once became one of the top animes in MY list. And it still is.
It was epic.

Death Note - If you were to check all the series I've seen (and listed as favorites) you'd notice they all have one thing in common. They all have action in them. I'm an action first kind of guy. Story is probably the last thing I look for. The battle of wits is what got me to like this series so much. And I think at the time when I saw this on adult swim I was getting to the point of being fed up with a lot of these series having idiotic characters as main leads. To see people actually use their brain was a breath of fresh air and 1 thing led to another and I was pretty much hooked afterwards. However, the anime is still a disappointment compared to the manga. Anyway, this will probably be the only series without action I'd watch/read.

I can't count on two hands how many times I ended up watching this on Cartoon Network back in the day. I'd be flipping channels and I always seem to watch television when it was on, so when I landed on it I'd have a gander... and actually stayed. I dunno if I liked it or if there was simply nothing better on, but either way those damn rodents kept me entertained more often than most anime I see on TV these days. The boss hampster was pretty amusing... and their damn "kush kush" catchphrases or whatever...
... needless to say, it's been many, many years since I've seen it. I should remedy that... ya know... for experimentation *cough*

notice: incase the person who actually made this sig finds it I'm just gonna say upfront that its not mine and I didn't make it and that the person it was made for was a friend 'a mine. The sig was also formerly a gif in blue but I changed the color to green by personal preference.

ps: i love you Ai Enma; if i am to go to hell when i die, i hope that you are the one to take me there lol
Noein: one of those unique shows that just takes your heart away: good story, good characters (it was the character design that made me start watching it... i was looking for something different at the time)
Spice and Wolf: my first initial image of the show and what the show is actually about are 2 totally different things lol; who know intellect could be sexy

Oh My God, Rosario+Vampire. Honestly, I still don't have a clue why I like this series so much. The characters are largely shallow, bumbling excuses for human/humanoid representations, the story is pretty standard harem with a cute-but-not-really-clever excuse for one dude being asphyxiated by boobs on a regular basis, and some of the plot points annoy the crap out of me, but GodDAMN if the directional quirks and the occasional original thing it brought to the table didn't get to me. As an ecchi anime, it was the first I'd watched (inb4 everything done by SHAFT) to be openly self-conscious of itself, where it broke the fourth wall regularly towards the later end of its first season. And the art, particularly in the clothing and scenery design department, could at times be downright beautiful; the episode where Ruby was introduced with the sunflower-field backdrop was gooorgeous.
The manga is purported to be 10x better regarding story and character development, but I... Kind of like how bad-depraved the anime is. Guilty pleasure to the MAX0RZ.

Slow start and mediocre action cuts.
But it made up with a good plot and sound character development.
yeah, i can say that Index is one of the best series i have seen.
still waiting for season 3 though. >.>

Clannad-Because of the genre drama and romance Thought i would hate it but after i watched season 2 It became the best anime i watched.
Air-Because it seemed very boring did not have high ratings First couple episodes seemed bad but turned out to be a great anime.
I just finished watching Clannad and Clannad: After Story. I am more into sci-fi and action when it comes to anime, so I really wasn't interested based on the description, but there was nothing else on. I was blown away by this show. It has some very funny moments, but also some interesting themes, such as family and dealing with change. It makes you think about what's really important to you.

Princess Lover: I thought it would be a generic shojo/harem. Highschool student falls in love with girl and many other girls come into his life and fall in love as well. This one generally surprised me by how instead of it being the average student, it was a kid who came into his grandfather's massive organization. It brought people out of the normal life and into the life of the rich and glamerous. It was a double surprise at the main character wasn't a weak simpleton. He actually had social intelligents as well as being an amazing swordsman. I highly recommend this series.

Five stars for Yokai: "Fans of manga will find much to enjoy in Yokai, from legends to the paranormal, and the story line never slows down as [Kit] is forced to cope with a world that is not of her making. Thumbs up for Yokai!"
