Fair enough about Madoka Magica. Persoanlly I just watch whatever kind of Anime as long as something makes me enjoy it. Usually it's likeable characters that makes me watch a series, despite what it's about, though personally I really love Fairy Tail because for me, it has everything, and usually I have always liked Shounen.
I'm trying to think of others I love but I can't name many that had such a big effect on me. I guess Bleach but that sort of fizzled out at the end, and I try to look for Anime that aren't always extremely mainstream, though really I don't care if something is mainstream or not, as long as I like it.
Currently I'm watching Mirai Nikki, although that's been going on for a few months now because I just can't find the time to watch Anime anymore with Guild Wars 2, work, and my responsibilities in the Guild
Yeah I agree one should watch what they like, regardless of the opinion of the masses.
I suppose thats why I loved Hidan no Aria, while the majority of the crowd hated it.
Same goes for 11 eyes.
A lot of people hate it, but I loved it and thought the plot twist around EP 8 was brilliant.
No real Tsundere in that one tho.
Then again, sometimes I like things without a Tsundere.
It happens rarely, but sometimes a show does that to me ( 11 eyes, Elfen Lied, Death Note ( I dropped it half way the second season because it became crappy there imo ).
Only Tsunderesque show I found to be a bit lacking was Kaze no Stigma.
That one had great potential, but it felt unpolished to me character-wise.
