Fractale.

Ambition completely weighed down by rushed execution to fit within the 11 episode constraint. It needed to be double the length to actually develop its cast and not feel overly preachy in the ideas it presents.

Galilei Donna.

Wow, I defended the first few episodes but I finally got around to the whole thing. What a gigantic trainwreck.

Mind elaborating? If you are correct on that statement you'll save me a lot of time because I watched ep 1 and put it on my to-watch list.

The ending isn't as spectacular as you would expect it to be if you looked at the beginning of the series and how well it started

Believe me, there are more problems than just the ending.

The entire first half of the show paints it as a slightly light-hearted affair. The characters outside of Hozuki never actually mattered, and then there's severe tonal whiplash interspersed throughout to try to add tension. Most obviously there are scenes where an entire village gets blown up and a hospital is massacred without any tonal warning. The plotting continues to try to loosely tie together these episodic adventures and it comes across as a mess of a generic adventure-across-the-world story. The last three episodes in particular add time travel into the mix, adding in an incestuous relationship potentially blossoming between our loli main character and her great-great-great(repeating) grandfather -- Galileo --, then culminating in the last episode with an entire trial that is rushed, makes tons of leaps in logic, and reveals tons of plot twists in the form of exposition and not foreshadowing these hints earlier on. The sisterly relationship is the only thing that I liked about this show in the end.

tl;dr: Unfocused on its characters outside of the loli, unfocused in its storytelling, tonal whiplash, and bonkers writing towards the end that isn't even entertainingly bad.

Hmh, the latest anime I finished must be Kids on the slope. I loved every minute of it, a slice of life that I enjoyed! (mostly I hate slice of lifes) Jazz and other awesome stuff!

Angel's Egg (Tenshi no Tamago).

Whoa. Talk about an amazing visual experience. Not a lot of dialogue or actual 'plot' of sort throughout the whole thing, everything taking place through symbolic visual action. I enjoyed this a lot, definitely a great and weird piece of art cinema. Easily my favourite thing from Mamoru Oshii that I've seen so far sorry I respect GitS more than I actually like it

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood: I actually thought it was very good, maybe even better than the first one until the end. What the hell? It felt like something of a bad fanfic wrote by a 15-year-old. Yeah, maybe the original 2003 series deviating from the manga halfway through wasn't a bad idea after all (hey, Arakawa herself didn't mind).

Gurren Lagann: I have something against works abruptly changing tone in their final episodes. Gurren Lagann is no exception, and it's probably why I never bothered watching the final four episodes (also uni constraints and some internships so I could save on some credit but I digress). Surprisingly, Gurren Lagann pulled it off neatly.

Sekirei: One of those shows I watched purely out of being a massive guilty pleasure. I had no idea how I even ran into it.
