I expected it to be shit frankly and was pleasantly surprised. This was before it took off as hard as it did. I only ever check here a few times anymore so honestly enjoying the fuck out of it and it's my AOTS for this and the previous season.

There were so many very specific parallels in Ping Pong to days playing a sport in my youth. Even without those personal elements it would be a masterpiece to me. I know I am never seeing anything like that again.

Maybe Valrave or Samurai Flamenco. The sheer insanity of both were so mind boggling that I'm not sure anyone besides the writers could have foreseen where they were going with the series.

This is probably the most recent genuine surprise anime has actually pulled off. I can come up with several unexpected developments (the massacre in Code Geass comes to mind) but nothing completely out of nowhere like this.

You really shouldn't, considering the entire show was about her crippling social anxiety and how she's making absolutely no progress with it.

I'm more disappointed than surprised nowadays.
The last time I was surprised was when I watched Gundam Build Fighters like a month ago, and Arakawa Under the Bridge a month before that
>>
>>144798688
Pretty much this. I was vehemently shitposting in the threads without watching the show. Finally gave it a shot when I was bored and was surprisingly entertained.
>>
>>144800463
I think this is true with any form of entertainment. Having expectations get outright ruin something. It's better to go in and experience it firsthand instead of going off of what other people said.

One Punch Man. I was pleasantly surprised in that it told the story of an over-powered hero, without it boring me. Normally, when an anime's protagonist is the strongest (or one of) it drags by. Yet this one felt like a light hearted show that I could enjoy the shit out of and still come to respect the fighting scenes when they appeared.

>What was the last anime you watched that left you genuinely surprised?
When I got hassled into finally watching SAO one of its few saving graces was the main pair actually getting together and being a couple on screen. I went in expecting balls to the walls harem shit so it was a relief they chose to cut the crap after the girl of the week episodes.

until Sugu came and ruined everything. Everyone knows you'll never get MC stop wasting our time
>>
I wouldn't say it's the last one that surprised, but Locodol is probably the anime that surprised me the most. It's so fucking good.
>>
>>144802221
Why? I remember the first time I heard the word "animes" before and it sounded so strange to me (not to imply this is the first time you've heard it). Over time I've heard it so much now through memes and plebs that it sounds more natural to me now and I don't care if it isn't the proper plural form.
>>
>>144802238
Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry is a decent anime if you wanna see a couple on screen. It's pretty nice. Solid 6/10 to a soft 7/10. I didn't have to force myself through it.
>>
>>144802317
It's kind of like saying "deers" or some shit.
>>
>>144802407
I think if I heard that enough times it would start to sound natural too, I don't associate myself much with deer though.
>>
>>144802486
What about "sheeps"
>>
>>144802570
Not sure, that one seems tougher to get past though.
