What I watched: Legend of the Legendary Heroes
What I expected: over the top + comedy
What I got: holy shit this is actually really god damn good.
The similarities between Geass and Needless are so weak, that you can connect it to practically any anime.
I didn't really expect something so good to come out of a title like that either, so I gave watched it for the lulz. Then it punched me for thinking it wasn't going to be good.
