I'm sure I might facepalm a bit once we hit the 80s or lower. But so far, no real issues for 102-92.

Madoka at #96 - *relief*.

One shouldn't take too much stock from what 29 random people think. Even from larger samples. Each to their own.

If you're saying that now, what do you have in store when M.D. Geist finally appears? :roll:

It is called hype blowback. The show is actually worth a good 6/10, not brilliant because of its predictability and Urobuchi's writing, but not really terrible, either, because it isn't like it was completely unwatchable at the time it aired (watching it streamed whilst following viewing threads on 4chan and other boards made the experience better). Every episode also pushed the story forward, so it didn't give you time to relax (even if it was predictable). However, second time through, sans the dvd upgrades, and with anime fan cred to protect.... 3.4 out of 10 was about as expected as night following day.

So, Squid Girl, Paranoia Agent and Redline in the top three. Odds on Redline. That film is still astounding after a second watch.

Somewhat surprised Penguindrum is so high, but AJAS hasn't yet aired the last half where it goes gradually downhill.

General fan reaction to Penguindrum was "Well the show was unique, so that justifies its crappy ending" which I Totally predicted.
