The only anime I ever watched throughly was Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z on TV as a kid, and even then I couldn't get who's bright idea was it to constantly slow things down so much to achieve some non-existing dramatic effect (3-4 episodes could have easily be morphed into one), or connect an awesome all-powerful macho superhero with a "kawaii" anthropomorphic pig, or write "Kame House" on a freakin' house... No other anime has caught my attention since.

Recently tried to watch "Serial Experiments Lain" on YouTube and couldn't get what the heck was going on, so I just gave up. Maybe I'm just a shallow "baka gaijin", but what the heck...
