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.
