What was the most disappointing anime you have ever watched? For me personally, it was Sailor Moon Crystal. I'm a big Sailor Moon fan and I was pumped for the new series to come out, even though it kept getting delayed I didn't care, I just wanted to feel the magic I felt watching the series for the first time again. But when the show aired in the summer of 2014 i was met with a show with extremely sloppy animation, poor writing and really just an underwhelming vibe to it. It was just such a gut punch to see my favorite show get treated with such a mishandled and mediocre retelling.

Definitely Madoka. The problems that arises from it are the fanbases hype of it being some dark subversion of the magic succubus genre. Though it is a subversion, it's not nearly as dark as they claim it will be. And even in sad scenes they still retain a cutesy atmosphere (opening song, and other scenes). Kyuubey is supposed to be this dark figure, but his actions aren't that evil, and in fact he is quite kind for what he does. Madoka also has other problems not only with its hype… plot holes, characters, and other writing issues. The art style looks really cool though!

definitely, I remember it had some good ideas towards the middle until it got boring again. I hated the white-haired one who always acted like an angel and then betrayed the fat one, I got the message but everything felt too much like some telenovela-relationship-drama.

Everything that has CGI (well excluding some feature films and OVA's) or is animated by Coreans.

Fairly recent example everyone knows: NHK, holy shit, the animation quality is horrible.
The comic on the other hand is very good.

The mention of the 'too intelligent' character reminded me of that one succubus from Lupin III part 5. That installment of Lupin, while it had some pretty good moments, felt like a soulless cash grab in a lot of ways.

There is indeed some modern anime with halfway decent animation and plot. Deca-dence comes to mind and Yesterday no Utatte might have been the only anime to come out last year other than Dororo that was soulless isekai. I miss cel animation and I understand why it's gone. I just wish more stuff being released now was more original or at the very least interesting.

They remade Orphen now to? I watched it when it was new and it was meh at best. I don't understand why the remade Higurashi either. I really hope now that anime doesn't go the way of modern film thanks to Netflix getting a bunch of anime for the masses to watch.

Also Gundam but Zeta Gundam specifically. I had it hyped up as the single best mecha anime ever only to lose interest almost immediately. I enjoyed 0079 quite a bit. Maybe it was just fatigue that caused me to drop Zeta.

Haruhi season 2 was a huge disappointment. GaoGaiGar piqued my interest due to its meme status but turned out to be a formulaic monster-of-the-week cartoon devised for the sole purpose of selling toys to children. Fist of the North Star could never hold my interest past the 20-episode mark. I would still rather watch any of these than most anything made in the recent past.

>Anybody liking something i don't is only pretending to like it

What about them was disappointing? The general tone and style of the shows' humour, storytelling, and content can be accurately gauged from watching just a few clips. Did you just dive head-first in to whatever hip series /a/ was talking about without trying to figure out ahead of time if it is something you'd enjoy? I mean obviously you watched all those series because otherwise you wouldn't be posting in this thread. Or does the mere existence of these series disappoint you? In that case, what direction would you like to see the anime which you pirate for free go?

Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!

I had been looking for a new anime and it kept showing up in top anime of 2020 lists after some googling. I hated the comedy attempts in it. I didn't care much for the character interactions or the character themselves. And nothing drew my curiosity or made want to see what happened next. I made it through 4 episodes.

I will say I liked how highly motivated and inspired the main character was to create and make something. Similar reason why I liked Bakuman I think.

This
It was hyped to the moon and back. And I just don't see what's so good about it, when I ask there's always mouth breathers saying "lmao loli nazi", and they're not even nazis.
I don't think it's bad, it's just that there are so little stakes. The main character is an expert tatician because… he's from the future? I mean maybe he was a history buff or something,maybe they mention this at some point and I didn't see it because I was strugling not to fall asleep, but knowing some history doesn't make Alexander the fucking great. And I don't complain that he always wins ,because most anime does that, it's just that every battle is so one sided, it's just no fun. One may think "well but he's in the body of a succubus, so he's easily overpowered, or nobody takes him seriously" but of course this isn't the case because he's just so fucking perfect and smug.

This is going to sound dumb, but it reminds me of Tom and Jerry, and I hated Tom and Jerry even as a kid because I hated that smug fucking mouse do much just thinking about it makes me angry.

Haven't watched the movie, maybe it's more balanced, but I doubt it.

I can't wait for the second season.

Hate all you want but I loved the shit out of the show. Rooting for the sociopathic bad guy as he gets into more and more absurd situations is very entertaining. The MC is prideful but always ends up paying for it by having to deal with even more crazy shit due to it. It's a escalation narrative driven by a highly motivated and active character who will use any means necessary to progress while still ways rigidity following any rules and conditions they are put under. Making them probably the best example of a lawful evil MC done well.

I'm glad you like it wiz, I really wanted to like it myself because the animation and aesthetic is nice, and this setting is pretty rare in all sorts of media, not just anime. Watched the movie last night and actually enjoyed more than the series. But still I don't think I'll watch another season of it. There are things that just aren't for you.

Fair enough.
Your reasons for disliking it are understandable and your own. It isn't like you are one of the idiots that hate on things just to be a contrarian so I respect your opinion even if I don't agree with it.
