It's weird. Even though I was disappointed after the initial change in plot and was bored in parts of each episode, I found myself rooting for the show and really wanting to like it. I still have a weird warm feeling for it that I can't explain, guess it's just charming. Probably helped by the soundtrack.

I don't understand Sheeky Forums. This place is a cesspool of disgusting memes, yet Sheeky Forums hates Commie.

Ai Hibikeep it real is fucking hilarious and if you don't agree you're an unfunny piece of shit. Plus the Japs fucking love play on words and puns like Americans love burgers.

I thought it was going to be a bunch of ridiculous comedic fights like the first episode and it turned into "A bunch of normal people on a road trip: the anime"

one of them was an ayylien though.
Normal people aren't ayyliens or friends with an ayylien. They were special all along.

That was kind of the whole point. It followed side characters. Rests, no Bests.

And it was really drab and boring because of that unfortunately

I enjoyed the setting but the plot and characters (minus most Bests) were wholly uninteresting.

Holy living fuck. Are you me? I began to like it for who knows what reasons. By the time Episode 8 arrived, I was thankful for not having dropped it. Still, Funi's subs were almost complete garbage and I only manage to enjoy the show after watching it a few months after, with sort-of decent subs.

Also, the motherfucking music.

After the first couple episodes it seemed really unique, mostly because of the colorful fights and everything. The rest of the show was still enjoyable, but it just didn't really keep up in my opinion. As someone said though, it's fun, and certainly worth a watch, but it's not going to be known as anywhere close to a classic.

It was pure tripe. Had to drop it after the retarded first episode.

When it was good, it was really, really good. The first and last arc's were poor compared to the the motorcycle and band arcs.

It was very special. Had a great artstyle, great soundtrack, great ideas but i feel like they didn't have the time they wanted to execute everything properly. It was still very enjoyable and fun to watch, but i can't help but to think about what it could have been.

Not only was it funny, it was pretty damn creative. It's dumb, but still fun, which matches the show to an extent.

It's pretty much FLCL: Kawaii Girl Road Trip edition

That is to say, both were LOL SO RANDUMB XD shows that was carried entirely by it's great soundtrack and how utterly fucking ballers and insane it gets at times.

Also, in scenes where animation was good, goddamn, animation was good.

@iluvmen
I dunno, it seems like there's a kind of general sentiment of "good, but not great" and "wasted potential" so far like @Skullbone
said. That's getting pretty close to consensus.

A few people called it AOTS when it was airing too so it's not surprising to see that now.

The main characters needed more depth to them. it honestly felt like there was still so much more adventure to be had. I at least wanted to see one of the main girls have a Best moment by pure accident. I think the show could have used another 5 or so episodes at least, just for character development. An OVA would be nice too. makes me sad there isn't any more of those crazy characters, painted backgrounds, great animation and damn catchy soundtrack.

Pretty fun show, but first episode gave a lot of people the wrong impression that its going to be the Kill la Kill of anime, which is why they hated on the show later on.

I loved it, having all those colors and that soundtrack and cute designs made what was basically a SoL on bikes a lot more interesting. And then there were the amazing episodes finishing each arc, as well. The only bad things in my opinion were the complete lack of budgets in half of the last episode, and bai bai end (although this is just personal opinion, I wish an asspull could have kept the group together).
The reason why it gets so much hate is because too many people picked it up after the colorful battles in the first two episodes, only to get disappointed by their own expectations.
