Have you ever started to watch a series expecting one thing, and then finding out that the show was just....totally not what was expected!

I know there's a few that were like that for me...

High School of the Dead

I don't hate this show, but I don't love it, and it wasn't what I expected. Why? Because I thought it was an anime about zombies with some boobs, but turned to be boobs with some zombies. Seriously, I don't hate ecchi but this show crossed a line for me. It gets to a point where I can't even just laugh at the absurdity, you know?

Plastic Memories

First off let me say that I LOVE THIS ANIME.
But to be honest, I kind of expected it to be a bit more scifi than it was, you know? I thought we might get into the problems of erasing their memories, and go into why the company is doing that, and get some plot, but instead....bittersweet romance. The biggest thing about it is they had this whole world that they didn't explore. Still love it, but not what I expected!


I haven't even finished this one, but I think anyone who has watched more than 50% of the show will understand. Beautiful beginning, and I thought we'd get good pacing to a beautiful ending. We did not, as far as I watched!

Madoka Magica

Because you do not get cute magical girls doing cute things. You get way, way, wayyyyyy more than that.

So, what anime wasn't what YOU expected?

@SimoneSanders *cough*spoilers*cough* @hikaymm I totally agree with you on Charlotte. About midway I was wondering how they would end it and then BAM! it made such a sharp left turn that I was wondering if I had missed something really important haha. I still liked it though. And with HOTD I felt they did very well with the zombie theme but the amount of fanservice was excessive and essentially made it less of a great show than it would've been if they had dialed down on the breasts.
A Certain Scientific Railgun. I really didn't know what to expect, but it wasn't the awesomeness that I did.
@PASCUASIO @IvanDiaz ugh I just couldn't get thru it!!! lol. I'll have to try to pick it up again
I agreed with you until you talked about Charlotte , You obviously havent watched the whole thing that anime is amazing. People just go watch it and decide yourself .. Honestly that anime in my opinion was perfect
I watched Plastic Memories long ago. thought it would be more scifi. Not what i excepted but still loved it. the feels were REAL!
