Well, this show took a SHARP nosedive after episode 4.
And it is supposed to get even worse :S
It's not unwatchable or anything, but it's just... not very good.
First 3 episodes were decent though.
/m/ is tsundere for the series at times, it has a few fans, etc.

Destiny is genuinely hated though. Understandable, that shit was easily the worst Gundam ever made.

G-Savior was internally consistent with its characterization and plot (I think. Been awhile since I saw it).

Destiny was not. Destiny was like someone taking a terrible fanfic and animating it.

Destiny never made me want to punch my computer screen, G-Shit did. I at the very least found a tiny bit of entertainment in Destiny, G-shit just pissed me the F*** off. G-shit is the one piece of Gundam merchandise I never ever want to own that is why I say it is the worst.

Hey, TDSA. Can you name a single three-dimensional Earth Alliance character in Destiny (side stories not included)?

Ok, I think I get why child of lillith doesnt like durarara now, this series is getting almost as contrived as code geass. Oh well I'll reserve judgements for after I finish it.

Quit now and save yourself the trouble. You know in your heart of hearts you want to.

Watched Fate Zero S2 Episode 2. The epic battle of jet vs chair continues. That is until the idiot plot intervenes and ruins everything. Stupid plot!!

Oh, and Saber isn't useless anymore. But it's too little and too late to really matter. Her ruination is already complete. :ehh:

Gundam AGE episode 27, the episode was okay but not nearly as good as last week’s although I thought a certain redhead would have died instead of the person who did. Next week should be good looks like there is going to be a new white wolf and I predict that the opening will change.

So yeah I finished durarara, while it wasn't horrioble there were a lot of things that annoyed me about it so here's what I liked and didn't like.

The good: I liked a lot of the side characters, especially Izaya, now there is a magnificent bastard for you! Sort of like what you get if you cross David Xanatose with some kid who likes to play pranks on people. And he gets away with it all with just a black eye to show for it, now there is a smooth criminal. Shizuo, Simon and Celty were pretty cool too. Hell even Kadota and his freinds were alright, this series would have been a lot better if any of the above people were the protagonists instead of those three chumps who got the lead.

I also kind of liked the point about how everyone has some crazy secret, well I'm not sure if everyone really does have a crazy secret in real life, but I do anyway so that kind of resonated with me.

Now for the bad things I didn't like.

This is the third most contrived anime series I've ever seen, almost as bad as the likes of code geass the way things just fall into place for no reason. Did they think "hey what if M Night Shymalan wrote baccano?"

And also I really didn't like the three protagonists, Anri was probably the most tolerable of the three though she didn't have much to offer. Both sides of Kidas bi-polar personality were extremely irritating, either he was acting like a cross between a playboy and pinkiy pie or he was acting like some kind of angsty emo bastard. But Ryugamine was worst of all, I don't think I can remember a more useless protagonist off the top of my head. He goes around acting like a less whiny version of Fam and furrowing his non existent eyebrows at everyone while blindly fumbling through all these dangerous situations. Damn I hate his non existent eyebrows so much!

So yeah, it wasn't horrible but it wasn't that good either, I think Baccano was definately the stronger series.

That was kind of a theme of the show, though, how interconnected these various characters who share little in common were. How one action by one of them affects another member of the cast, even when they're so far apart.

But yea, the 3 "main" characters were rather dull. Not sure what it's done to spark so much dislike from you and CoL though. I mean, if the entire show was all about them and the rest of the characters didn't exist sure, but with so many better characters it kind of outweighs how boring the main three are.

I dunno, I enjoyed it. It wasn't the best thing I ever saw, but I didn't find it nearly as bad as you guys.

Code Geass and Inuyasha were the first two.

Well I didn't hate it, its just that whenever kida or Ryugamine were on screen I wanted to punch them and the contrivences were also a bit annoying.

The parts dealing with the other characters I thought were cool for the most part.
