Hanoka is a series that proudly proclaims that it was the first TV anime series ever made solely using flash animation. And it's a fucking mess! For starters, the animation is incredibly inconsistent and looks really jarring and awkward most of the time with action sequences that lack any kind of flow and having character designs that look off model most of the time. Now, considering the year this show came out in and if it were an independent project produced by one guy I would give it a pass. It was made during the Newgrounds era when many talented animators were beginning to emerge read more

I'm not really sure what I expected from this show initially. I'm all for new techniques used in any kind of context, and given that this Anime series had been animated entirely in Flash format, I thought of it as perhaps something exciting, something catching. Also, the episodes were short...meaning I wouldn't have to endure THAT much if it proved to not be worth my time. :-J So, how did my opinion turn out?

Story: 3/10
Rehash, rehash, rehash. Well, it's a war between humans and large ferocious aliens, and special superpowered units have been deployed to aid the humans in the war. Hanoka is one of read more

Honestly? The story isn't terrible. It's very basic, simple, and not even attempting to bring anything new to the table, but there's a vague understanding of general pacing, structure, foreshadowing, and other basic traits of writing. In fact, in the right hands, this narrative has the potential to become something very likable. Patricians will consider it drawl regardless of the form it takes, but that doesn't denounce the fact that this definitely has a ladder it could climb.

That said, in regards to what keeps this from being all that great, the problem is the lifeless leads. There isn't enough time to really spend creating any read more

I can't believe one would be able to use microsoft paint so masterfully and then create an anime with it.
Hanoka with its 'unique' style of animation and quirky characters makes it a bundle of fun to watch. The anime is compact in time and story with all of its cool fight scenes!!! This anime is god tier man... Like holy shit, even Kemono friends doesn't have anything on it. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!!!

You may be thinking that my ratings on the story,art, sound etc... is completely overestimated, but I disagree, I think that I've underestimated it with these ratings. read more

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.
