I've discovered lately that a lot of my favorite media is stuff I went into not expecting to like to the degree I do now, or even at all. Homestuck's the most obvious example (THANKS, GABU), but a lot of the notable examples have been musical.

For instance, when I first heard of Marina And The Diamonds, I thought, "ew, just more generic pop". And then I actually listened to some of her music--I'm pretty sure my first was Oh No!, but I might be wrong--and found that I really enjoyed it. Same with Ke$ha.

I also thought I'd find Crystal Castles to be really abrasive. Some of their stuff is, admittedly, but on the whole I've found myself really enjoying their music. Especially their softer stuff--Suffocation in particular is fantastic.

Have any of you guys had anything like that, where you thought you wouldn't care for it but you ended up enjoying it? And if so, what was that thing?

It happened just the other day, actually, when I watched Dallas Buyers Club. I totally thought I was going to hate it, especially considering the controversy surrounding Jared Leto, but I actually loved it and thought it was a really gripping, well-made film about AIDS in the 80s. I am usually not a huge fan of Oscar bait films like this, but this one really touched me.

I don't know, does YTP count in this thread?

On a more "serious" note, usually any manga falls under this (especially Shinryaku! Ika-Musume, where I like how there are many relatively short comic stories instead of a huge one, although it's been a while since I've last read it (lazyness) and I may get around one day to continue).

Well, I don't know if this counts, but i guess Sonic '06. At the time, the only consoles I had were GBC and Genesis, so I'd always go to my friend's house to play games... I had played a few of the 3D sonic games at his house, and was only a little impressed by what the games had to offer (yeah, I didn't like SA2B that much >.>)... But one of the many days he rented a 360, he also got Sonic '06 and... frankly, we enjoyed it immensely. o.o;



also, er, a certain anime with a certain young-looking main character with green eyes...

Heh, good ol' Sonic '06. Loading times aside, that's not a completely bad game. The story may be wierd, but it's fun...

Are you talking about Boku no Pico, or am I completely off the mark here?
