Wait, what's bad about that? It's a magical girl series, right?

The plot is convoluted and the pacing is just awful. The characters are one dimensional, too. Granted, it was a kid's show and the target audience probably only saw pretty characters transforming into pretty mermaids and singing some pretty catchy songs.

Don’t get me wrong though, I couldn’t help but adore the over the top nature of it and the way it seemed to hit every magical girl trope and amplified it tend fold. I suppose it’s the campiness that I really like about it.

Well, I do enjoy catchy songs. It was on my magical girl series to-watch list. I've been getting really into them lately. redface

Good! Because you’ll be hearing the same catchy songs over and over again for almost the entirety of the series! They’re the mermaid’s special attacks and, like any proper magical girl anime, they’ll be executed with the same stock footage over and over again.

I love the magical girl genre, though. My first anime was Sailor Moon (shocking, I know) and ever since I’ve had a fondness for shows that centered around frilly girl power.

Oh, good! I bet he likes Skeletonwitch. If not, tell him to check them out. They're good to their fans too. They let a seven-year-old girl interview them because she was a big fan. It was cute smile

I know how you feel. I used to get up super early as a kid just to watch Sailor Moon and Pokemon. xd

I was obsessed with the Pokémon anime as a preteen, right after I was finally introduced to the games by my older brother. I was a bit late to the party on that one.

Sailor Moon was what I woke up to, too. I first caught it when I was six years old and was pretty stoked there was a show about teenaged superhero girls.

What's wrong with Chobits?
Mine would Ikki tousen rofl aka battle vixens
The Digimon Dub. redface
Also, not sure if this counts as a guilty pleasure, but Redline is my second favorite movie of all time.

Sometimes I like to watch "Panty And Stocking With Garterbelt." (Not really sure if it counts as an anime) Although I don't appreciate the constant cussing and the art looks a bit odd, I like the characters especially Scanty and Kneesocks. They're pretty cool.

OHMAN there's a sh*t ton of shota I like

Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru, among other harem anime. I mean, DAMN. I refuse to believe he's a boy. No, he's a futanari...

And other stupid harems. Ah, man, there so much dumb stuff I love. Cliche can be good.
