The new Kino no Tabi series that came out several years ago. The art style had already kind of put me off but I gave it a chance and watched while it was airing. Got through around 6 episodes before I just kind of lost interest and stopped. None of the countries were as interesting as those in the original. Also they butchered the remake of the coliseum episode so hard, completely leaving out the part she sees all the people of the lower class in the country living like shit. So when she makes the law at the end for people to start killing each other she just looks like an anarchist edgelord.
And for something that's not a sequel/remake, True Tears. I expected a decent love triangle, maybe with some melodrama since that usually comes with the genre. But this was just retarded, forced drama through cheap NTR bait. And all the characters acted like they were autistic. I remember the main character just yelling in the middle of the street at some points, and I laughed because it was so ridiculous. Almost all the other characters were emotionally retarded as well. Only succubus I kind of liked was the one who worked at the ramen shop, but it was obvious she wouldn't win from the start. I don't even know why I watched the whole thing.
Is that the 1979 Gundam series? The one that EVERYONE says is this GOAT show?
no, thats gundam zeta which is one of the worst in the series
chuu2 has a pretty famously terrible season 2. all the characters were flanderized into the ground
Sword Art Online without a doubt. Had a great concept but then literally went straight into the garbage. The most disappointing thing is that people genuinely love it anyway.
Isn't the first season of Digimon supposed to be really good and the rest is awful?
I usually find that it's the first episode of things that is disappointing.
Don't know about "things" but in anime it's a common practice to make first episodes cool, intriguing, with polished animation, and then drop it to limited ugly shit like there's no tomorrow.
Shinsekai Yori is a perfect example, as i remember.
Kyoukai no Kanata. Watched it without knowing anything about the studio, without expectations, etc. Flashy designs, boring characters. Nonexistent plot. Didn't make it even half way through>>31046
You mean it's good? Yes, it's in the 10%.
The third season is also good
What a fucking shit show that was.
I loved the original, but that shit has no business even existing.
At least Shinsekai Yori had a good story, it's a shame that it looked bad more often than good though. I just hope the original novel is translated to English one day.
Neon Genesis Evangelion
I hated DBS more than anything. I don't know what I'd expect since Toriyama is going senile and DBZ wasn't that good to begin with after a couple arcs, but I absolutely couldn't stand it. Dragon Ball was always a shounenshit anime however during its earlier days it had a charm to it that made its shounen aspects seem almost nonexistent. As if it were true and genuine.
Only thing I liked about DBS was Zamasu and I somewhat liked the new Broly movie (3DCG in it made me angry though).
Tanya the Evil. When someone described it to me it sounded super interesting, but after two episodes I got bored. I might give it another shot, but I was still disappointed
I stopped watching after the episode where they're about to do something in the airport and they introduce the really edgy 'too intelligent' succubus.
Only positive thing I remember about it is that the way they portrayed hacking was slightly less retarded than the way most other shows do.
I usually give hacking a pass because it is visually one of the most boring things you can put to film if it was done realistically.
At least as long as they don't treat it like total magic like Hollywood did in the 90s.
>>31231>At least as long as they don't treat it like total magic like Hollywood did in the 90s.
do you mean hackers? i read actual hackers liked that movie more than most things about hacking, partly because of how over the top it was and for the soundtrack
yeah the airport shit almost made me drop it too, but honestly the whole concept of "we are terrorist who blow up buildings in the middle of the city but somehow nobody ever dies" is stupid as on itself and clearly a half assed attempt at making the protagonists "anti-heroes" that just end up being good guys anyway.
Sailor Moon Crystal because it'd crap compared to PGSM and Netoge no Yome for being a crappy MMO anime.
SM Crystal was very soulless compared to the old show
Same, honestly, one hundred percent same. IIRC they condensed like 50 episodes of material into like 12. Also the CGI transformation scenes made my eyes bleed. I wanted to love it, Hell, I wanted to just like it- but I couldn't stand it. It was awful, and the most disappointing anime I've ever seen. Probably because of my deep love for the original show.
I was a fool to think anything new could come even remotely close to anything from my childhood. And no, it's not just nostalgia glasses, everything now is cheaper, weaker, and seriously dumbed down.
Every season of Gundam that I tried. I can't believe something that boring and badly written is one of the most well-remembered series in anime.
The only one I liked was gundam seed
Pretty boys with problems in space the anime?
That said I enjoyed it too.
probably madoka. I feel like I was baited into watching your typical bland shoujo from all the people who acted like it was some sort of masterpiece and kept calling it "dark". It was just some silly little magic succubus show, I mean damn dude, I've seen darker plots than that in nickelodeon cartoons.
How far did you watch before you dropped it?
You probably aren't the target audience, go back.
I liked Madoka but you're right, the way people recommend it is really misleading. It was hyped as the Eva of the mahou shoujo genre and even though it's clearly not, lots of people haven't seen enough to know otherwise so they go on believing it.
Just watch and make up your own minds?
To its credit, it only has 12 tv eps + 2 or 3 movies.
by a 13 years old*
How many times do people need to ruin beloved classics with re-adaptations for you retards to learn to stop having expectations?>>31047
I can agree with this. I really liked season 1 but season 2 bored me to fucking tears, I didnt last more than a few episodes.
This obviously never happened, but as someone who has seen Madoka I rate Rebellion as the most disappointing anime of all time. They couldn't have fucked it up harder even if they had specifically set out to sabotage it.
>>31689>Super powered karate magic succubus with Big O mech style powers
I think I will check this out.
the big O was so sweet, man that robot was the best
Azumanga Daioh, Chiyo and Osaka carried that show.
Actually It was made for 13 years old. Weebs glorify it.
There's not many things I would call perfectly childish but this is one of them. If it was any less retarded it would just become bland.
It was cute and kinda funny, but after about 12 episodes I got bored of it.
I guess that's the main problem with slice of life shows… eventually it gets written to a dead end.
Yeah, I loved Chiyo though, so I just watched a "best of" compilation for her scenes. Same thing happened when I watched Lucky Star, I made to episode 18 but I was so sick of the show by then that I dropped it and never ever want to finish it. Tsukasa and Yutaka are best succubi IMO.
That weird anime with cut weird scenes and empty music. It's from the early 2000's. The plot is unintelligible and it's set on a post apocalyptic future. I thought it was cool because of the GIFs youd see from it.
If it is based on a fighting game then it actually is pretty accurate to the source material, lol.
But as someone who loves martial arts and good fight scenes I strongly feel your pain.
when I saw this new aestetic all shiny and polished up, I knew it would be complete shit. I never watched it and will never
anyways, SM manga is better anyways
I can recommend that to anyone and it is very sad to see how they butchered up Rei in the anime show
Isn't the S portion of Crystal supposed to be good, or at least better than what we saw before? Don't forget a new movie is coming out in 2020.
The first time i watched it I dropped it after ep7, more than a few years later i decided to see it again from the start. Honestly i think its damn great if you view it as a parody too other mecha animes. This shit is so over on the top retared, but thats what also makes it great.
Black Lagoon, although admittedly I havent watched the entire thing and it was probably the first anime I've watched in ages. But revy just came off as a huge cunt and none of the characters were very relatable.
Yeah I dropped that one like 4 episodes in. She's a total cunt mate
For me, it felt like the creators were too focused on making the show seem western that ruined it. It was like when they try to imitate Americans in anime and they act like this overly-stereotypical view that Japanese have of westerners but instead of doing this for comedic effect as would normally be the case, the creators of BL actually thought this would come off as cool. Instead, it just came off as edgy and ridiculous of course.
I never understood where all the praise comes from for that show, there's lots of other anime that emulate a western style but actually make it work, like Cowboy Bebop or Gunsmith Cats.
That reminds me of another western-styled anime that everyone seems to love except for me: Trigun. I detested that show, because of its annoying characters and because its mood-swings from comedic to serious felt completely tone-deaf.
JoJo: Stardust Crusaders
it turned into total shit.
Madoka Magica. Extremely overrated.
JoJo is very cringeworthy in general
Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V. Series started out pretty great, characters started out good, the different dimensions plot line was interesting. The series even had the balls to have a wizardly rival who is better than the main protagonist in pretty much every way.
Then the fucking director had to wank his 5Ds boner all over the series resulting in original characters getting shafted for BUY BLACKWINGS: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO, An arc that would fucking put NAMEK to shame in terms of relative length, and to make it fucking worse it was a god damn tournament arc,AFTER we already had on. Like what the shit?
Synchro completely ruined every character and completely flanderized them. For the first time in YGO history the female lead wasn't useless and actually contributed to the plot significantly, only to be turned into a damsel in distress and then finally a living macguffin, The best friend character does nothing but talk about the MC even in situations where the MC isn't relevant, the edgelord becomes nothing more but a meme machine at this point
The other two arcs got fucking rushed. Kite was just there, Aster didn't do shit, Alexis got fodderized by best character Yuri and was then turned into the MC's dad's walking stick. The mystery behind MC's dad's disappearance doesn't amount to shit besides backstory for the villain
The villain's plan is fucking retarded and makes no sense in retrospect, even worse when you realise that his plan would also risk fucking the world(s) again by making it possible for Card Game Satan to reform and he took absolutely no precautions to prevent this from happening despite experiencing first hand just how fucked the world(s) would be, even making one of the living catalysts for Satan one of his top agents.
Card Game Satan was a waste of time and could have easily been prevented had all the characters who were aware of him were not retarded. The duels against him are also shit because he does nothing but sit on his big invincible beatstick and his evil dank version of whatever summoning mechanic his opponents try and use against him. Rival gets some shit to actually happen only for the day to be saved by literal DEUS EX MACHINA.
Shit STILL doesn't end and we have a few more things to go through before it finally fucking ends. MC duels a bunch of characters who try and get the MC to have fun again so that he can make a fucking baby smile. AND THEN IT ENDS.
RIP edgelord who permalost his best friend and sister who he raged about for literally the entire fucking show. He may have survived but he still took damage
Sorry but you were really dumb for even contemplating that this show would be even remotely enjoyable, let alone replicate the vibe of the original.
The original Sailor Moon series is very unique (even to this day) in that all the lead animators were good + the water color backgrounds are just gorgeous. There is no need to make a new version of something that is perfect as is.
The first and second season are basically one continuation of the same story with recurring characters, so I'd consider the 2nd season okay too. Everything after that is cash grab bullshit.
If you want to watch Digimon:>Season 1>Season 2>skip everything in between and go straight to Tri
The beginning of DBS was absolute fucking dogshit because Toriyama wasn't really involved for the first few arcs. When he took the helm, it was pretty good IMHO. Zamasu & tournament of power were great in many parts + the ending couldn't have been better.
Tamers is better than the first two by a wide margin.
Data Squad wasn't even bad it was just a generic shounen.
>>31863>it is very sad to see how they butchered up Rei in the anime show
You mean the original one? How did they butcher her up exactly?
I'll never forget the amount of shitposting and sheer mockery that Crystal received when it was airing.
I still think it was the anime blunder of this decade.
I had been told Elfen Lied was really great but I was elfen lied to.
NGE I hadn't heard anything about beforehand but was still disappointed.
I just can't get over how adorable the music and acid rained things sound, will watch!
Once you learn Japanese, all anime starts to dissapoint you.
Everything you wrote off as mysterious and indecipherable turns out to be plainly dumb.
Also you learn to detect the patterns of Japanese ideology or society.
It's similar to how you recognize the rebellion arc in American media.
I guess it's more of a case of general misanthropy than anything against the Japanese. One tends to give more leeway to people one has communication barriers with.
Same with ecchi, the medium really is insufferable if you don't laugh at every lewd uwu shit you see
Not anime related but I remember the time I finished Onani Master Kurosawa. Realistically, the guy would have been tortured, beaten to death, expelled from school and even publicly disavowed for what he did. What happened? Unrealistic bullshit. He's forgiven and he gets a tsundere gf who he had already punish-masturbated and disgraced once. The end? he lives a happy life in the end just because forgiveness and christian bullshit.
I guess I'm just jealous how he was able to do a 180 and fix everything in his life.
The remake of Orphen.
Not that I think its terrible or anything, it just made me realize that what I loved when I was younger wasn't as good as I remembered.
Ah yes, pretty sure there's a ton of show I should be grateful I saw back in the days because they often get referenced so it's nice to know what it's about, but it would've been a drag to watch them nowadays. Saw the original Orphen a few years back so I skipped out on the new one. It was indeed rather average.
Is the Viz Sailor Moon dub worth watching?
yami no matsuei
Probably Your Lie in April. I had a friend that recommended it to me, he had weird taste, and I knew he enjoyed both absolute normies shit and shows those who've been in their Mom's basements for years hadn't heard of. He really hyped it up and he'd recommended good stuff before so I figured why not. Watched it and I hated it, pretty sure I didn't finish, just got like 3/4 of the way through.
>>33469>enjoyed absolute normie shit>talks about anime
the state of anime community 2020 surprise me, anime used to be so niche.. now it's considered mainstream. I know its a fact but i cant believe it. I saw half of Your Lie in April but never finished due to it being on air. But i enjoyed it, had some feels & deapth. Wouldnt watch it today tho. Time to short to waste.
the last modern anime i saw was Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and it was garbage. Animation was good, but nothing else, yet its overly hyped. I remember when SAO was hated, but atleast i enjoyed the story for the first half. This shit had nothing.
>>33472>anime used to be so niche.. now it's considered mainstream.
Yea, it feels weird. My first introduction to it was my older brother, he loved it back in the early 2000s, young me and our family thought it was odd. Like some people liked cartoons, but Japanese ones? Made him a strange dude, but it was whatever I guess. As I got older and he found streaming services to watch anime all the time from mom's attic (he lives there to this day) I remember seeing things get more and more popular and just thinking "what?" And it continued up until today today, anime doesn't make you weird or anything now, and every other high schooler has seen JoJo and Naruto. It's what got me into it, I've only been watching for just under a year but I've already seen some obscure stuff because of my brother.
Im similar to your brother, i started watching in early 2000s to, but what different me and from todays generation is that i was a huge closet weeb, i never mention to anyone that i liked anime, not even to my family, as soon they entered my room i would click the window down as fast i would, as it was porn i was watching.. I was deeply ashamed of watching anime for years end since i know how nerdy and weird it was. Im still a little ashamed of talking about it but i'm finally opening up about it, but now's my age the weird thing, ironic huh? I thought i was too old watching anime in my teens.
>>32693>I don't really know if it's a good adaptation of the material.
Eh not really, they ruined satan's character by making him "great value" ripoff griffith, while in original he was way less bland and way more fun.
For me personally least favorite show i finished would be paranoia agent, its not a bad show, great atmosphere some stories pretty good, best thing about it is that it's a mixed bag, BUT there is a lot more stuff i hated about it:
Two episodes given to obese degenerate dad his shtick got old real fast i think.
"Boo hoo look how hard is it to work on an anime" episode.
Some people in opening never play much role in the story. Why put them there?
Some episodes pretty good on their own like "etc" and suicide culture episode, but overall they tell nothing related to main story.
That one obese otaku scene does he try to discourage losers from suicide or recommend it? Or recommend it only if you aren't cute and likeable.
Wish it ended on first bat arrest.
When I was a kid anime was fairly mainstream, Hokuto no Ken, Starzinger, Cobra, Urusei Yatsura, it was all mixed in there along with He-man, Transformers, Tom&Jerry, Looney Tunes, some french stuff etc. Every kid in school had seen it.
I'm from 86 and clearly remember the anime boom in the early 90s. Saint Seya was what every kid would talk about, that was in 92, 93, then DBZ, Magic Knight Rayearth, Dragon Quest, Sailor Moon, Yuyu Hakusho. All of those and more were on national TV every day from 92 on and all kids would know and talk about these shows. It's funny reading wizkids writing about how anime was niche in the early 2000s lol. By then the crowd for anime was so big you had 3 or 4 yearly anime conventions with cosplays, fake merchandise, monthly magazines about anime and all that shit.
Not that it matters, but I know for a fact the wizkiddies have no idea what they're talking about when it comes to this. It's been mainstream for at least 25 years now. They just don't know it or ignore the fact to make the statement that they watched anime before it was cool, which for 99% of them is impossible, it was already cool before they were even born.
There's one thing in your argument that you are forgetting, and that is not everyone is american - meaning the 'americanization' of the japanese culture wasnt as widly know in europe by the 2000s as it was in the US. As far as i know, there was Sailor moon & Pokémon on TV.
Your argument is a fair one, but i still believe that anime in the 2000s still and will be niche. Also i belive that kids anime are left out of question, since my generation, 1993, pokemon exploded. But not a single kid knew this was anime or what anime is.
Sailor Moon Crystal just retells the stories from the manga instead of the anime. The original anime would always be better since the creators actually expanded the universe and characters. The manga was ok for what it was. The only problem I have with the original anime were the filler episodes. The manga went straight to the point.
That being said, Crystal just ruins the manga with it's shit animation and lazy acting. Its just the manga animated but lazily put together like it was a last minute thing. If you want a new Sailor Moon experience, go read the manga and you'll get more fulfillment out of it.
Zoomer reductionist. Fuck off.
No he's right, depending on where you lived anime was already pretty mainstream by the 90s
I remember watching animes on tv.
Can you describe this dumpster fire in details?
All i know about it is that series loved by ironic weeb crowd.
And has a certain hysterical fat guy related plotline (holy shit he's even eating on a show cover, some characters just hated by their creators).
How bad does it get?
I remember dropping it. It's just a 24 episodes of fanservice imitating doggy-style fucking.
I dropped it after like 5-6 episodes or so. I actually thought watching it again when i see your post, dropped it again.
I haven't read the manga (don't know if I ever will) but holy shit, was Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card a huge disappointment. The 90s series had a great conclusion, and now it's ruined. When they were at Tomoyo's house, watching the play from sealed card, it felt like such a huge "jumping the shark" moment.
90s Sailor Moon jumped the shark when they introduced that annoying pink haired succubus.
>>33550>It's just a 24 episodes of fanservice imitating doggy-style fucking.
That's not a fair assessment. It's not a good show, but by no means is it as simplistic as you described. If it was it might actually be better since some ecchi are very entertaining/fun to watch. Darling in the Franxx is like a bad show dressed up as a good show. Meaning the themes, storyline, worldbuilding, animation, etc makes the show APPEAR better than it really is. Basically if a smaller studio did it with a shit budget no one would care about it. The writing is so shit at times and it occasionally has a weird shounen vibe. This anime is all over the place. I really want it to be good since it does get emotional and interesting at times, but goddamn WHAT THE FUCK is with this anime.
3rd season is arguably the best. Thought it was interesting that Chiaki Konaka worked on it. It explains why this season is a bit darker than the others.
shit tier waifu bait
Hey guys, is there some edit of the anime that only has the slice of life scenes? I only care for that and not the magical succubus autistic from the moon bullshit
Original series preferably.
I thought it was ok, even if I hated every single mech design.
Then again I am autistic so all the relationshit drama was a bit over my head anyway. Can't really comment on it.
I read the manga years before it got a anime and refuse to watch the anime because of how much they censored all the violence and gore as well as toned way down how fucked up and totally irredeemably insane all the characters are.
They are not good people and you are not meant to really root for them. It is more like you are just watching a horrific tragedy take place but you know all the people involved deserve the fucked up things that are happening to them.
At least that is how the manga felt to me.
So it was always meant to be just edgy shit happens to edgy people and then everybody dies the manga. Not a example of how hot dysfunctional relationships are with a crazy chick who is obsessed with you to the point of casual murder is.
Year of production, the name and one glance at the cover is enough to me to hate it.
Interesting. I will give the manga a chance then.
Never even heard of this one, for good reason I suppose. I miss K-on.
Personally I really enjoyed it and I think it has extremely little to do with Kei-on. It has a bunch of female main characters, that's where the similarities end. Give it a try
the one that stands out the most is You're Under Arrest, I have no idea why I wasted my time on a like 50 episodes anime about traffic cops, wtf
I've never seen anything more boring, except maybe key the metal idol
I watched that show in the late 90s Argentina. It was broadcasted several times on cable tv>>33705
Funny, at that time Patlabor was also broadcasted in Fox Kids
I heard from numerous people it was comedic genius, I'd laugh my ass off.. I genuinely didn't smile a single time throughout. It felt like torture to watch, though I was drunk so I binged it one night.
It was robot chicken tier humor
This. Plus it was filled with moronic unfunny pop-culture references.
Japanese humor is mostly terrible
I only remember the first season of Sailor Moon, even as a kid I thought mini moon was annoying and killed the comfy vibes the show had going.
gijinka de manabou.
Hands off Eizouken.
I fell for the hype, and I still have no idea why it's so beloved. I kept waiting and waiting for it to pick up but its just so slowly paced and repetitive with zero plot. The art isn't even that good or appealing, the animation is mediocre. Both of which has only had its praises sung by people as being 'innovative' somehow.
Maison Ikkoku without a doubt.>finished Urusei Yatsura>was mostly a good time, was expecting Maison to be similar due to both being made by the same mangaka>entire show is the protag living the shittiest life possible being tormeted by the cruelest hateful people ever written>protag is in a "will they, will they not?" with main love interest who jumps from crushing on him to thinking he's the lowest scumbag>the """drama""" is mostly misunderstandings from no communication and lies between the characters>the surreal dreamlike nonsense from Urusei Yatsura is gone, is mostly grounded in reality and boring as fuck>is regarded as one of the "classics from the 80s">is regarded as one of the "best romance anime"
Watched 24 episodes before I said fuck this. Can't believe people liked watching this miserable hateful shit.
How dare you, it's a masterpiece.
couldnt get past epi1, little shit should be beaten
I never actually got around to watching the Sailor Moon R movie, is it as good as people say it is?
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!
This is literally just an Evangelion rip off with a shitty twist ending.
This, not the 90% but sometimes i droped animes after watching 1 or 2 episodes.
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.
Yeah, I went in expecting it to be a monster of the week mecha anime.
What I got was relationship drama between autist the anime.
I didn't hate it but I didn't fully enjoy it ether.
steins gate 0
i simply couldnt wait for a episode to finish
Just watched the Sailor Moon R movie, it was ok, albeit a little cheesy and predictable.
The Ranma 1/2 ending was quite disappointing. I tried giving Fire Force a shot and it was zoomer tier garbage.
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.
