Sword Art Online.
It's so frustrating. Lately there have been so many animes with really
adorable character designs, a pretty good animation budget, and a more or less intriguing basic story setting. I was excited... only to find out the storytelling sucks, is full of clichees and dumbed-down fanservice, not trying to be anything new, or exciting, or outstanding and it's such a waste of potential
I mean, really! Guilty Crown was like that, Sword Art Online is like that... So many others are like that. They don't even try.
Gah. The character designs are really cute, though. So have a fanart. Sigh.
