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.

Gundam, I thought it was going to be interesting but then realized it was eva but shinji has an increase in testosterone and autism. Overall the series is a 7.2/10 for me. Tomino is too lazy and odd when it comes to his writing and editing


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

90% of anime past 1st episode is disappointing.


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.


File: 1564992922065.jpg (85.46 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, Shin Sekai Yori - 02.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

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




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.


File: 1565046773058.jpg (405.2 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, [HorribleSubs] Legend of t….jpg) ImgOps iqdb

The new 3d Berserk show was a huge disappointment. I could live with the slightly strange 3d models but I'm not sure how they managed to pull of such horrible animation.

I was also kind of disappointed in the new Legend of Galactic Heros anime. I dont specifically remember why but I do kind of dislike the generic anime style. Maybe I would come back to that one.


Neon Genesis Evangelion


File: 1565202169849.jpeg (14.54 KB, 267x189, 89:63, download.jpeg) ImgOps iqdb

Hated this piece of shit K-on rip off


File: 1565229528780.jpg (35.98 KB, 634x312, 317:156, 5a5376e950c0d-joker-game-t….jpg) ImgOps iqdb

I watched Joker Game expecting a spy thriller where all the character's stories would be intertwined and make an overall plot
Instead I got auto-conclusive episodes where characters pulled off ultra complex bullshit plans that got repetitive two episodes in.


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

this shit is retarded


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.


>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.


Will this list kind of gives a taste of what I mean, but it was even more prevalent then this list lets on.


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.

Gundam Wing
I don't like that the heroes are lone wolf hi-tech terrorist and that world's military can't do anything. That premise rubs me the wrong way.


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?


>nickelodeon cartoons.

You probably aren't the target audience, go back.


lol madoka hurt


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.

this anime was so fucking retarded,feels like it was made a 13 years old


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?

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.



>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.


File: 1572507066836.mp4 (104.76 KB, 600x600, 1:1, Ryu.mp4) ImgOps iqdb

You were disappointed in Azumanga Daioh?


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.

Martial arts anime that consist of two fighters spamming badly animated special moves. Why bother then?


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.

>it's not just nostalgia glasses, everything now is cheaper, weaker, and seriously dumbed down
Pre-2000 anime was very lavish in production budgets sometimes + classic cel animation looks generally more organic and 'alive'. Creators were also very vision-driven and free to fuck around as much as they like. There's great anime today too, but the amount of original and creatively striking works is a lot less + animation quality is often just glorified flash trash.


Tamers is better than the first two by a wide margin.

Data Squad wasn't even bad it was just a generic shounen.


>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?


File: 1577007304841.mp4 (945.12 KB, 720x396, 20:11, QIlme0H.mp4) ImgOps iqdb

it's the industry in general. Anime today is a tight production-driven process. Only directors are the ones who do anything creative..


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.
