This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'Save us!'... and Gon's Balls will whisper 'First... comes... rock!' Hah!  Made you stare at Naruto's Marshmallow!  Pushing the logo off-center to drive TheOcean insane.

Lightbulb Good, Okay, and Downright Awful

For something a little different...give us the title of a(n) anime/manga you thought was good, one that was okay, and one that was downright awful. Feel free to give reasons, but be sure to use the spoiler tag as necessary.

I'll start:

Good: Parasyte [Manga]

Okay: ...I thought I had something earlier, but I seem to have forgotten it :(

Downright awful: School Days [Anime]
 
My overall impression of the series was "Hooray happy fluffy!" to "LOL SEX!" to "OMFG SHE'S GOT A KNIFE!!!!111" But that's just me.

Good: Fullmetal alchemist (I could go on and on with good ones)

Okay: Nabari No Ou (manga. I haven't watched the anime)

Downright awful: 07 Ghost. (The manga. I don't even know if there's an anime. It had a good plot but it was so rushed and crowded that I couldn't even tell what was going on...)

Good: Bokurano. Unique and interesting.

Okay: Creamy Mami. Good to watch to pass time but not overly interesting.

Downright awful: Lucky Star. Arrghh I had a headache after watching this. Seriously... they just kept talking about dumb things.

I enjoyed what I saw of Fullmetal Alchemist...the only other one I'm familiar with in the posts above is Lucky Star (which I haven't seen, but I really don't understand the hype...)

Hmm, I guess I'll look at my list...

Good: Digimon. Awesome characters, 'mons and story each season.

Okay: Koihime Musou. Basically ROTK/Dynasty Warriors. Except 99% of the cast is now female. And lotsa sexual innuendo.

Awful: Naruto. Do I really need to give a reason?

Good: Last Exile- From the steampunk setting to the intertwined and interesting character stories, this anime exceeded my expectations for seeing it so late in it's life.

Okay: Code Geass- Ending aside, this anime actually met my expectations. The mystery behind the powers was interesting, the buildup of Lalouche as a would be conqueror was well done, and even the BS high school hi-jinks shoveled in there (During the first season) didn't feel out of place. If it had a conclusive resolution after the first series, I'd even put it in the "Good" pile. (Never R2 though, never)

Bad: Lucky Star- Where do I begin. I've spoken at length about this series and how it's bad, but the real blow is how it's an anime that audiences from other countries or even walks of life other than an "Otaku" can't really gain anything from this anime. It's comedy, yet the humor is made for Japanese nerds. It's cutesy, but it's a type that's supposed to appeal to Japanese nerds. It's about daily life, of Japanese nerds. Of all the humor anime I've seen, this one seems intent to only catering to one segment of the audience. And it suffers for it in translation to other markets.

good - Trigun - I cried
 
when wolfwood died
. I really enjoyed the way that the emotions of the people are portrayed. They aren't shallow, flimsy anything. Thought-provoking.

okay - Full Metal Alchemist - even though it was interesting, it never seemed satisfying. The end just seemed like it got tacked on without enough explanation and depth. and though I enjoyed the people, and they did show emotion in very strong ways, sometimes it just wasn't quite as believable as I could hope for.

downright awful - Vision of Escaflowne - holy crap this anime is bad. It was the first anime I ever saw, and as such I didn't judge it TOO harshly at the time, but geez. For absolutely no reason
 
van and what'sherface don't end up together, but rather inhabit different worlds, forever attached via lame. seriously, what prevented her from staying there with him? NOTHING.
also, the noses were constantly distracting, the villain was overly dramatic and shrill, and the whole flip-flopping thing on what'sherface's part about who she liked and the drama and the drama. and her very convenient kinda sometimes future thing. GAR! I could go on, but I won't.

I liked what I saw of Trigun...which isn't much, but still <.<

And that's a second person to vote Lucky Star as an awful anime

I third Lucky Star. The only thing I can praise is the great dub... which doesn't really save it.

=Arrrrrr, come on, you cannot hate Escaflowne, it was everything you expect a 90's anime to be, silly, over the top and completely out of touch with even its own reality lol [ PS with the ending, she cannot stay as her reason for being there is over, so she needs to go back her own world, I liked that, mainly as hate perfect endings ]

my tastes:

I loved Baccanco: Sure some of it is over the top and many of the characters need to learn when your dead, stay that way, plus the plot itself is not stunning, these very weaknesses end up being strengths somehow, because it takes an average plot with completely insane but therefore brilliant story writing, makes it something totally original and that never over stays it welcome, it one of few anime's were you like just about very character in it, even the ones should hate and so forgive their inabilities to die and finally it is so cool, the senses, the music, the dialog and way plot unfolds while not floorless, was best of its kind by miles for reason (well until they made Dulararara or whatever its called lol)

Ok=There are lot which put here, but think will put Gurren Lugoon, do not get me wrong, I liked this show, but the war everyone raved about it, I was simply expecting more, so diff victim of own success, but even with that plot is cool but could have been given so much more, if worked on developing, the characters are likable, but beyond [ the best one who they kill off ] nothing else and while funny, was not my thing

One I hated=Full Metal Panic=I was thinking about putting something easy like Bleach or Naruto, but that would be unfair as rather woeful, there just not my taste, however this is one that lost me, how can they show be so popular, unlike Naruto and Bleach which least have redeemable parts or just watched as comedies this was beyond woeful, it was just stupid, in a show about big killer robots, why does it feel like I am watching hollyoaks?

I'll admit I haven't watched too much anime, (at least compared to the other people on this forum) but I'll make a list anyway...

Good:Death Note
Okay:Bleach (the first few seasons at least)
Downright awful:Yugioh! (the original obviously, not the abridged...)

Good: Monster. My favorite anime. Great characters, brilliant story, and good pacing. Its pretty long, but its one of the only shows that is worth the buildup. This is storytelling at its best.

Okay: Utawarerumono. Its pretty good, but its what I would consider to be the standard for an average anime. Its starts off good. Its a typical story about a pretty good strategist who builds an army and defeats all his enemies. It gets a bit shaky towards the end where it basically turns from a Dynasty Warriors type story into a Godzilla film. Good, but could have been better.

Awful- Wolf's Rain. I hate this show. Its so god damn boring. It wouldn't have been so bad if it would stop looking like it was going to get interesting. I sat through 16 episodes before I finally realized it wasn't getting any better. This is one of the most disappointing shows Adult Swim ever aired.

Good: Gintama. See it for yourself.
Okay: Rozen Maiden. It never really seemed to appeal to me as something incredible or bad and because of that I consider it average.
Awful: Lucky Star. Reasons stated above.

go Fared for mentioning Baccano!!

Good- Baccano. I very much liked this show. The music was great. Wonderful jazz pieces that fit at all the appropriate times. The characters were interesting, and you were bound to get attached to one of them considering the wide variety of personalities they had. I also loved the idea of how there was so much going on at once, and at first you have absolutely no idea what is going on, but by the end it all makes perfect sense.

Okay- Negima! (the first series) When I had originally watched the series, I thought it was pretty decent, but after watching Negima?! I realized that the show could have been executed a little better. Granted, one is more close to the manga then the other and one was better funded then the other, when there is a situation such as the one in the show(s) there should be much more comedy relief, and the first series was lacking that. (It also didn't help that I watched it dubbed and was utterly annoyed by Greg Ayres voice)

Down right Awful- RomeoxJuliet. Now, I think I might be a little biased on this because I absolutely hate Romeo and Juliet the play. No matter what you do to Romeo and Juliet, you can't make me like it. I was not impressed by the over-the-top love in the play, but had high hopes for the anime because I'm an otaku and expect things like that. Another reason why I shouldn't really be saying this show is downright awful is because I didn't even finish watching it. Once I got up to episode 15, I believe, I wasn't impressed in the slightest. How they altered the play like that...it wasn't fair to call it RomexJuliet.
ANOTHER THING! Mercutio was my favorite character, and from what I saw of the anime there was a sheer lack of him. DESPICABLE!

Good: Dinosaur King. Okay, I fucking love Dinosaur King.

Okay: Bakugan: New Vestroia. Could have better if it remained like the first season and didn't go all Pokémon/Yu-Gi-Oh.

Downright Awful: Thankfully I forgot the name, but it was some detective anime about three kids that were like 5, 6, and 7 who go to some private school in the middle of Tokyo that's essentially a large town complete with pharmacy and monorail. The characters had no flaws and no personality. It was like the lady who wrote Twilight made the characters for a 90's anime. I watched the first episode and hated myself and wanted to die.

I thought Dual Masters was hilarious.

Breaking the forth wall, acknowledging that it's a tv show, and Gatling Skyterror was so awesome.
