It took that long for a bad joke.

Is that CLAMP?
Definitely not.

The only CLAMP I've seen is Chobits and I wouldn't recommend that one.

X/1999 is alright, so is Magic Knight Rayearth. The manga, not the anime.

About halfway through Knights of Sidonia. It's not great. It started off alright; the nobody thrust into the spotlight is an interesting enough trope. But it got worse as the episodes went on. The main character is literally an otaku straight from 4chan. He has a harem that he neither recognizes nor seems interested in. Heavy handed exposition is galore, with major characters standing around explaining back story in what must be the weirdest conversations ever. There's also a talking bear for some god damn reason. Oh, and it's rendered at like 8fps or some shit so it looks slightly strange as well, like weird slow 3D anime, but I suppose that's a matter of taste.

It has some good elements, the sci-fi ones like human photosynthesis and breaking dead people down for energy is cool. The fight scenes are cool, shit everything about the 'Guard' mecha suits is cool. But everything else is shit. It reminds me of Eva, where the fights and themes are compelling but the second Shinji starts fucking sulking again I can't help but get annoyed and turn it off. I'm confused that people called this 'Attack on Titan in space', since it may be similar thematically but is completely different in execution.

tl;dr don't watch Knights of Sidonia. Next up is Death Note.

Main character is surrounded by 10 horny girls who wants his dick and constantly drops hints but he's too fucking dense to figure it out. He thinks they're just being friendly.
Show ends with either the most bland and boring girl winning, or it ends with main character still too fucking dense and nothing is resolved.

Anime is a serious medium that deals with serious concepts. There is an episode of Full Medal Alchemy where one of the characters is turned into a retarded dog and it literally made me think about philosophy and feelings for 12 hours straight.

I think Knights of Sidonia is the first time I've come across really blatant harem elements, I try to avoid that crap.

Nothing I watch has harem elements... I think the first and only time I really saw that was Tenchi Muyo on Adult Swim.
