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.

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.

 No.35728

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.

Was willing to give this a go since I really liked Shana's design (Konata is my waifu), but even with that I could not get into the story at all. I watched 8 episodes until I realized how boring it really was and I didn't enjoy a single thing about it. One of the only animes I've dropped

huh, and I was this close to starting that show this week, but not if there's going to be such a retarded premise, being an office drone from the future doesn't make you a perfect soldier, in any time period

show seemed a little too hyped anyway

 No.36129

>>36122
I was one of the few who wasn't disturbed by it. Mainly because:
- I read into it too much. It made it seem like the guy was an office drone in his previous life because he missed his calling.
- WWI really was the perfect era to drop into. So many militaries did absolutely retarded shit and pulled retarded tactical moves. There were a lot of times I wanted to put it down thinking, "Like that would ever happ–" followed by me thinking, "Shit, something on that level of retardation DID happen when country X first joined the war."

That's fucking boring…
And also that not about Vinland, this anime is only about revenge of some scandinavian kid.

 No.36131

>>36130
didn't know it had a animated anime as well.

The manga is about revenge, but at some point he get's his revenge and it goes on further. They get to the "Vinland" lands way way ahead in the story.
Story is not about that, and not about revenge either.
But I liked the whole manga a lot. I think it's still ongoing?

She didn't go straight from salaryman to soldier. She was reborn in the other world from childhood and was raised and teached tactics and trained like a soldier in the military. From there she become efficient in her job. Is not that complicated to understand.

People, well middle class consumers have less money, less children, less consumption on children items like cartoons, toys and anime. Now most consumers of previously children toys like funko pops are adult soyboys in their thirtys, some have disposable income, but not as many as in the past when the middle class still existed and had disposable income.

You would think people would know to expect the mid point twist of that studio's projects by now.

My main complaint was I didn't like the mech designs and most of the emotional and relationship drama didn't work for me because most of the characters are too stunted.
Stuck around because I knew some sort of twist was coming and actually enjoy it somewhat, the animation, and because Zero Two is just interesting enough to carry the rest of the cast of soggy briskets.

God I hate shit like that. It's when melodrama is taken to the utter extreme. When characters start acting like little kids throwing an unhinged tantrum that's when I check out.

Fighting anime usually disappoint me.

 No.37721

banana fish: unrealistic and too gay
jin rou: names of the organizations were way too similar, lacked character
kissxsis: visuals were cancer
kizumonogatari: dialogue was mid, movie went nowhere
garden of the sinners 7: too corny, message made no sense
eva rebuild: lacked the charm and message of the originals
mob psycho: boring cancer
parasyte: pretentious unimaginative cancer
the big o: story lacked continuity
laputa castle: literal kids movie
gankutsuo: director doesnt understand the connection between enviroment/technology and culture

but the honor to most disappointing goes to attack on titan. what a bullshit fucking ending.

The new Eva rebuild was actually pretty good. I loved how it pissed off every nerd and fanboy.

 No.37982

Baki:I watched the 2001 anime, i liked the overall concept, but the shitty animation and the awfully repetitive ost ruined it for me, it doesn't help that the version i watched had subs that were literally made with google translate, i guess i should give the manga a try someday.

Devilman Lady:Boring shit unless you have a monster succubus fetish, and in that case the manga is better.

Genocyber:It's just two hours worth of boring garbage, and it's nowhere near as gory as people say if that's why you want to watch this thing in the first place.

 No.38015

>>37975
it doesn't really have anything going for it
the OG eva had an interesting (but poorly explained and rushed) plot and it has an important message that was related to the plot itself. i dont see any of that in the rebuilds.

 No.38016

Probably every single anime that is not a CGDCT anime after you have watched the few good serious anime. Anime shines with cute relaxing moe moments to gaze upon as you nod off to sleep or snuggle in your blanket and rarely can the medium entertain serious tones.
