"Y'know, I could spend about 10 hours talking about how incredibly dumb this anime is... but I'm going to try and do it in 9." - Mr. Plinkett.

I had put it off for far too long. Once you've had a taste of this vile poison Idea Factory calls "anime", there's no stopping it. It invades your mind, defiles your thoughts, and contaminates your entire being. This is the goal of the asinine Idea Factory- a group of people who can be called no less than anime terrorists- to destroy anime from within.

Animation: (if you can call it that.)

The 3D.... oh MY BUDDHA THE read more

From the genius that brought you "Mars of Destruction" comes..."Skelter Heaven"!

Yoshiteru Satao...That is a name that sends a cold shiver up the spine of any anime critic. This guy isn't just a bad anime director, he is THE bad anime director. Everyone has a director they personally hate. The famous anime reviewer Bennett the Sage has stated that Masami Oobari is the worst director of all time. Oobari is BAD, he is REALLY bad, but he doesn't even compare to Satao. Even the second worst anime director: Iko Suzuki with his 1,2,3, punch combo to the testicles ( Sleeping with Hinako, DearS, and Dark Cat) read more

For anyone who has watched and completed Mars of Destruction and thought it was the worst thing you have ever laid your eyes on, I (and probably anyone who has seen this) invite you to experience the joy of wasting 20 minutes of your day and watch Tenkuu Danzato Skelter Heaven. I was completely blown away at how terrible Skelter Heaven really is... it was so terrible that its funny, 10 minutes later and I'm still laughing

I could bore you with how terrible the animation is, or how poor and lackluster voice acting is, or even how they managed yet again to skip a plot read more

This show was so great, I forgot the character's names.

This was one of Idea factory's best works since Mars Destruction. The music was outstanding, it really helped bring out the deep emotions that the story was laden with. The art was also quite delicious. I was by no means screaming "RAEP!" and "GET SOME!" while I was watching this.

If you loved MArs of Destruction, you'll probably love this even more.

Anime: Mars of Destruction
The two worst anime ever created, directed by the Ed Wood of anime. Both of them are absolutely hilarious to watch and will have you burst out laughing from scene to scene. This is the pinnacle of "so bad, it's good."

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion
A huge monster attacks the city and the most unqualified people to protect it are forced to do so using mechs. Both shows also contain fanservice and artificial humans.

Anime: Pupa
These two... things, are the worst of their kind. If every anime produced is a new "birth" by the industry, these two are abortions. Pupa is the worst TV anime. Skelter+Heaven is the worst OVA anime. They're so bad you'll either have suicidal thoughts or homicidal thoughts towards the producers.

They're both extremely short, so the only reason you should watch these two is to get to know by first-hand experience what defines a ridiculously bad anime.

If you hated one, you'll hate the other.

Anime: Eiken: Eikenbu yori Ai wo Komete
Both are terrible OVAs with fanservice - and a female character who obviously loves the male character. 
reportRecommended by RoarkTenjouin
Anime: Top wo Nerae! Gunbuster
Highschool girls in mechs fighting huge monsters to protect humanity but mostly because their coach tells them too. Animation quality is about the same as well.

Anime: IS: Infinite Stratos
- both are Mecha genres
- both have girls fighting with help of machines
