God forbid people to like something you dislike.
For instance Yuuichi is the main reason why I like Kanon, instead of your normal harem lead that is clearly gay and evade all the girls that loves him for no apparent reason he is a motherfucking smooth talker and don't subdue them with just looks(unlike Tomoya). It feels more or less realistic in this aspect and doesn't give you the urge to kill the main character.
Forced drama? It depends on how much you were spoiled before watching the show. I hardly cry while watching anime but the final scene of Makoto arc was well made technically speaking. I really loved this scene even though I wasn't touched at the point of start weeping.
