Been there, done that
This is something I have expected for a while, my taste in anime keeps getting narrower all the time and force to depend on 'classics' to find good shows. There is no way that combination works in long term and it's already too obvious.
Maybe I start with current season so it's out of way. After all that hype Nodame Cantabile's first episode was disappointing, male lead is far from likeable and music isn't anything to rave about. I watch it for now at least, but nevertheless Nodame is painful example that my flawed theory where every josei series created is masterpiece doesn't work...
The other one is Hidamari Sketch. Funny slice of life anime with cute girls, those SD faces look weird though. But still, that's only two series.
When I said in the beginning it starting to get hard finding good anime I meant it. Sure, there are mediocre shows to watch and forget without thoughts, but the stuff that blow up your mind with sheer awesomeness? Only very few. Out of current ones Fruits Basket comes to mind, hopefully those 9 episodes left end it the way Tohru and her loveable harem deserve.
Few choices to this problem are of course to watch old favourites or get a new hobby. First one works only limited time, rewatch value isn't always high enough. As for the second, all I can say it's under progress. Though on other hand maybe I just need (another) break.
