The 30 Day Anime Challenge continues on to day five with … Anime You’re Ashamed You Enjoyed.
Ugh. OK, here’s the thing: if I take this literally, the answer is none. I either enjoy something or I don’t, and shame does not come into it. So, rather than end the post here, I’m gonna cheat slightly and go with the anime I was incredibly surprised that I enjoyed. That particular title goes to Keijo!!!!!!!! (AKA Hip Whip Girl).
If you’ve not read it yet, check out my previous review of the show. That will give you a much more detailed run down of what I enjoyed about the show (as well as what I didn’t). The basic gist though is this:
I expected: A show that was nothing but fan service, featured unlikable characters and yet still seemed to take itself far too seriously.
I got: An anime that was flawed, but that was neither afraid to be silly, nor incapable of adding a serious edge when appropriate.
Yes, there was plenty wrong with this anime, but it was certainly entertaining!
That all being said, do any of you have an anime that you’re ashamed that you liked?
