I tried to get through it, but something about that moe blob anime subgenre (yes, it's basically an entire subgenre at this point. Unfortunately.) rubs me the wrong way. I thought it had a cool premise, it just felt soooooo slow and (more importantly) sooooooo boring for the first 4 or 5 episodes that I just had to stop watching. >.>
A show being slow isn't necessarily a problem for me - hell, I'm a huge fan of psychological horror which is BUILT on being super slow, but super slow SoL always feels like NOTHING is happening, even when some pretty cool stuff is >.>
SoL stuff kinda depends on how it's done, and I generally don't like it too much either. And I watched GuP mostly for the tank combat, which was actually really well animated and pretty epic (I play a shitton of World of Tanks, so maybe it's more interesting to me). But yeah stuff like Lucky Star (which I actually tried watching) is appealing to some people, but personally I found it really damn boring.
