At least you've got the right notion. I use /a/ as a source of entertainment primarily. Secondary to that is the occasional reference to an anime I may have overlooked or never heard of. I'm just as quick to check out what /a/ says is shit, as I am to check out what /a/ says is great.
The thing is that most of /a/ appears to be watching CG only because it's being talked up, and they want to be part of the "in crowd". If your one who actually likes the show for what it is, then more power to you. I couldn't make it past the 1st few episodes of season one, but that's only one persons opinion.
