Tired of shit anime

Recently I got to thinking that I was tired of anime, but seeing Oh Edo Rocket demonstrated that I am only tired of shit anime. Unfortunately that would be almost everything made these days. I want to see something truly good, like Shingu. Even flawed but epic would work, like Gurren-Lagann (I hoped for Sorakake to turn out like that, but it didn't). But I think the freshest well-made anime I watched was GA:GADC, and that was almost a year ago.

The past year's stock lines up about so:

  • Seirei no Moribito: Seen all. This was actually pretty good, but not quite Sningu. Needs a fraction more power, maybe some plot twists.
  • Pretty Cure Max Heart: Seen all 49. V.slow to develop; slice-of-life dominates. Overall, is not all that good, IMHO.
  • Oh Edo Rocket: Seen all. God, this was a painful remainder how crappy the current anime is. Whimsical, offbeat. Great villains.
  • [Astro Fighter] Sunred: Seen all, a few times. Bad art (webcomic-like), repetitive, weak. But Kayoko is out of this world. Too bad it's not her anime.
  • Kampfer: Seen 11. Pulpy to the utmost but great fun.
  • Sorakake: Seen 10. I cleared one episode after 9, because DiGiKerot said "this is where all of the Internet stopped watching", but it's such a drag, and it's supposed to be fun.
  • true tears: Seen 5 (the deal-making with the biker basketballist), formally is still running. Supposed to be everything but I just cannot care.
  • Kimi ni Todoke: Seen 10. The very best of shoujo, but seems sagging in the second half.
  • Onegai Twins: Seen 1.5. Hideously stupid. {Update: Evirus twittered: "You didn't even get to the bad parts." Did I never.}
  • Gatakei: Seen 8 minutes. Maybe I don't want to ruin the impression from blogging by actually watching it. It cannot be anywhere as good as everyone says.
  • Kobato: Seen 1. Kobato is dumb like a post, not simply naive.
  • (Futari wa) Pretty Cure: Seen 5. Basically watched it for illustrations on Hanahalu site (care, NSFW at site's root).
  • Strike Witches 2: Seen 3. More of the same, exploitative.
  • Asobi ni Ikuyo: Seen 1. Aoi is a syco bitch. {Update: Steven rushes to defend with "that impression of a cold, merciless killer is entirely wrong. Deep down she wants to love and be loved." Bet Hitler wanted it too. *eyeroll*}
  • Ookami-san: Seen 2. Bland; crime drama (narrator ok).
  • Idolmaster OVA: Seen the whole episode, and it made me ashamed to be a fan of it. So bad.
  • Mitsudomoe: Seen 13. Not as bad as expected, but still weak. Repetitive, one-sided.

Now, the hopefuls (e.g. entries in the queue that have a chance to be "good" in aforementioned way):

  • Full Moon wo Sagashite: I dread committing to 52 episodes, but Evirus said "best anime ever".
  • Mizuiro Jidai: jpmeyer's effective advocacy re. the youth. May be hard to find.
  • Kara no Kyokai (Garden of Sinners). I hate creepy stuff, but apparently it's the final good thing that Ufotable made, so...
  • Bungaku Shoujo: Ryan's fault. I'm not very optimistic.

And that would be it. Nothing else to watch.
