The title says it all. What do you think is the most generic, the most unoriginal anime you've seen?

I'm really interested on your opinion!

Sword Art Online of course. Masumune-kun no Revenge is a contender.

Almost everything I gave a score of 3, basically.

So for example, there's Fairy Tail, Accel World, Soul Eater NOT, Plastic Memories, Orange, Akashic Records, Masamune-kun no Revenge, Grimoire of Zero, Tyrant Lover, etc...

I've probably offended a lot of people already.

Let's go with Koi to Uso if we're considering rom-coms because ecchi/harem/comedies are easy targets themselves.

Well, let's put in 4 votes for Hundred. Even I found it kind of bland and forgettable.

Boku dake ga inai machi - generic characters, generic and predictable plot, generic ending, generic voice acting... (one piece voice actors still did a great job tho)

I would say Hibike ! Euphonium,

Besides the orchestra theme, It feels like I have already seen every character and stories. I still like though.

The term "the most generic anime" is a bit of an oxymoron, isn't it?

Yeah I included Totoro there by accident. It's not generic; it was just pointless.

Harems tend to be very generic with one-dimensional characters. Cope-paste the foundation/structure into the next harem, repeat.

This seasons smartphone, seriously it doesn't even have one uniqie element to it. I don't usually like to label a series bad due to being generic, but this is a clear exception and the poor production values and lame uneventful plot adds to it.

The UtaPri series uses the same tropes really often, however, I still watch it because of great voice acting and catchy music.

Akiba's Trip the Animation felt like it was made by a computer. Everything was way too safe and cookie-cutter; even the fanservice was the careful lazy blank-boobs, teasing yet making sure not to offend anybody kind of thing.

I don't see why people are saying SAO. Regardless of whether or not you think it's a good show, it was pretty original at the time and the production value alone is enough to save it from ever being 'generic' in my eyes.

I've got two contenders. The one I've actually finished was Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou, which... I can't even say was bad, just forgettable. Seriously, I can't remember anything that stood out about that show. The one I didn't finish was OniiAi, which I watched up to the source of the 'screams externally' gif and then dropped, safe in the knowledge that I'd gotten everything of value from the show.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei is a great example, I almost killed my self while watching it. Right after comes Trinity seven, which when compared to other harems fails miserably in inducing any emotions and sending any message across.

I think Isekai Smartphone is the perfect generic package. There was no effort whatsoever to make anything standing by itself. It's as bland as a piece of Tofu.

Hundred is not generic, it is just Ecchi done wrong.

They're quite a few

Hanbun no Tsuki,Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon ?, Eromanga-sensei, Fuuka, Masamune-kun no Revenge, smartphone isekai show.

The embodiment of generic is Guilty Crown, tho.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

Musaigen no Phantom World, DanMachi, Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry, Kyoukai no Kanata and Fairy Tail Movie 1. These aren't the worst anime I've seen, but they are the most bland anime that I've seen so far. There is absolutely nothing special about any of these.

Dafuq did you just say? It's a romance anime where a human and robot develop feelings for each other. There is nothing generic about that, especially compared to other romance anime.

Back in the days club animes are generic and there were also lots of ecchi anime but now every issekai bullshit. This season has the smartphone.. whatever that shit's name is as the most generic anime of the season.

TL;DR probably every issekai bullshit that has aired or is airing.

Yes that arc was good but it was illogical at the same time .. can you tell me how the fuck could ichigo beat zaraki so easily ? And i want to mention the most stupid battle in the anime history "ichigo VS byakuya" .. omg it was the most illogical shit i've ever seen .. how could he beat a captain so easily ?? Also , we all know that ichigo will rescue rukia cuz it was obvious .. i wanted some unexpectable events .. sorry but this arc is overrated

Most Fanservice and Ecchi anime are this. The best ones have actual creativity instead of generic panty shots and dull boring characters with no story.

Oh, so that's why. That is something I can actually agree with (except Isla, she isn't generic), but I wouldn't call the anime itself generic since the concept of love between a human and robot is quite original.

I saw this anime called Divine Gate. It wins for being extremely generic. Almost every thing in there was predictable and it was overall a snoozefest.
