Man do I really want to read the Berserk manga.
I don't hate or dislike any particular genre of work.
I really have disdain for rehashed genre material. With this mindset, I wouldn't have been able to find and enjoy the many great shows I know now. Although there are many animes out there that will bore you to death because of the unoriginality, there are diamonds in the rough that always look generic at first.
Don't dismiss everything at face-value. Give it a try, even if it has bad ratings. Everything has its ups and downs. Could end up being that you'll moreso love the good aspects than of any bad aspects that show up.
