TL;DR - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_8Bhz5c224, SO BAD IT'S GLORIOUS!

This is not an anime to watch alone. This is an anime to watch on bad movie night. This is the anime equivalent of Tommy Wiseau's The Room. This is Plan 9 From Outer Space. This is the anime equivalent of hilariously campy.

The story offers little to no background in what is clearly a rather complex fantasy world. Don't bother yourself by trying to figure anything out. It won't do a lick of good. Just sit back and laugh at this comedy gold.

Strange case we got here: a show so bad that it's good! Make sure to watch this show dubbed though because ever single line is delivered with such horribly delivery that you can only question if the actors have ever held a normal conversation with a person before.

The story and characters in this show are just awful. The story barely makes a damn bit of sense and the characters reactions to it are just terrible. That's not to say that there is not enjoyment to be had here because there is plenty of enjoyment to be had here, everything is so bad it makes you read more

When you ask Otaku today what the worst anime in existence is, you get answers like Pupa, Mars of Destruction, and maybe Kis X Sis. When you asked otaku in the 1990s what the worst anime series were, you got one of 2 answers: MD Geist or Garzey's Wing. Since I already reviewed Geist, it was inevitable that I would one day have to review this pile.

Let us travel back in time to the 1990s when everyone was talking about this shitty movie called Garzey's Wing. You probably had dial up internet, and booting up a plain text site could easily take 15 read more

Imagine, if you will, that you've been transported to a fantastical alternative universe. In this world enormous creatures, resembling dinosaurs roam the landscape. Yet there are still people here: foreign looking ones though, and wearing clothes from the sixteenth century. And if all that wasn't depressing enough, your sword is considerably less sharp than you would have anticipated. Welcome to the world of Byston Well, and the exercise in terrible production that is Garzey's Wing!

Anyone who has ever dreamed of creating a work of narrative fiction: be it a film, a novel or an anime, would be well advised to watch Garzey's Wing, because read more

Anime: Soujuu Senshi Psychic Wars
Yet another "so bad it's horrible" anime, with both representing the absolute nadir of anime. Both were completely unforgettable pieces of schlock when they came out in Japan, but became legendary in how bad they were when they were released in the U.S.

Both are titles that you have to see to believe, and both are notable for their one-time performances by many of the cast

The infamous English dubs of these two shows can be described in many ways: atrocious, inconsistent, LOUD, overly dramatic, incomprehensible ghibberish, BUT ABOVE ALL, hilarious. The only reason to watch these shows is the for the dub, so if you found either of the dubs consistently hilarious, you'll find plenty of enjoyment and quotable lines in the other. Without the dub as their saving grace, these shows would remain the garbage that they are.

Anime: Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri
Both are fast-paced, action-packed and confusing knowing no bounds, but keep pressing on anyway.

Anime: Arata Kangatari
The protagonists end up in a mystical world, have "another self" still in the real world that tries to work together through limited contact. The protagonist is a normal person in the real world, but is special in the other. The protagonist is enlisted to help some super important woman and has a female sidekick.

Anime: Mars of Destruction
They are both hilarious anime with plot holes everywhere and stories that make damn near no sense.

Animated Agony: 10 of the Worst Anime of All Time

There are plenty of bad anime out there. But only a few shows are downright unwatchable. Ugly animation, nonsensical plots, and boring characters sink many anime, but only some fail in every possible way. Here are ten of the worst anime you'll wish you'd never wasted your time on.
