Been reading some good reviews on Last Exile: Ginyoku no Fam, and I think they've hit the nail on the head as to why I'm not totally enamored with it. The characters just don't seem to matter to me, at this point in the series. It's pretty as all get out, and I love the aesthetic, but the story is a little thin and empty except for wanting to kick the kneecaps off some of the antagonists.
I'm hoping Guilty Crown isn't one of those that I get frustrated because of the stupid and spineless protagonist. The only reason FSN was anywhere near bearable for me is because I was already a fan of the IP and pretty much took the whole anime as a fan service. I joked with a friend that the series basically became about what horrific way the protagonist was going to get injured this week. It was just frustrating because he wanted to be some kind of hero and had about as much of a grasp of reality and his own shortcomings as an inbred chihuahua. Sure didn't help that they tried to bring in elements of some of the other storylines and just didn't do a good job meshing them into the storyline they "chose" to portray.
