Neon Genesis Evangelion. Honestly I think its really overrated. For me it wasn't as good as people said it was. Really boring imo.

My most disliked popular anime would have to be
- Jojo, didn't like the artstyle and can't stand the fanbase
- Gintama, didn't find it funny and despise the fact that this one series manages to
take 3 of the top 10 spots

your lie in april -- predictable and humor was placed in the wrong places. too melodramaic but everyone sings their praises for it.

re zero -- first few episodes? interesting premise but went downhill in the 2nd half lol

edit: anohana too, like what? how did people cry?

The original Steins Gate.

I really liked Stains Gate 0 though. I've realised that's because in the original Okabe is annoying, but when he's depressed he isn't!
It wasn't just that, I also found the pacing to be better in 0 and less boring as a result.


Wow, you made me want to watch steins gate 0 now.

Gahhh, Attack on Titan. First off it's not the genre I would normally watch, but mainly I can't stand the actual animation style especially the movement during action sequences. It's my dead in the water anime.

IDK if I will drop it but: Devilman Crybaby. Can't stand it because there is stuff that seems great, I like the main character he seems great. But wow they are way over the top of the gratuitous nudity/random sex/Ecchi. Aside from that it could have been something I give an 8 or a 9. I'll probably complete it anyways at some point then give it a 3 or 4 due to the sex(Unless it gets even moreso, then I will rate low & drop).

Akame Ga Kill for being really boring, generic & forgettable. They started with fanservice then it occured to me that probably the writers/animators knew it too that there was no reason to watch it.

Berserk 2016/2017: Not highly rated in general but still overrated in general. Awful CGI Fests that only serve to ensure that Berserk most likely cannot ever have real anime adaptation.

Can't stand the last bit in Death Note. I hate Near the cheap knockoff of L. I hear it happened because the publishers forced Ohba/Obata to continue against their will. So I hate the publishers for that, they shouldn't have forced them to continue immediately against their will. It's the most clear & abrupt drop off in quality I've seen so far as before is solid 10/10 material, some of the very best in anime.

Code Geass. I'm sorry it's confusing as hell, and the only I liked was the openings.
Consider trying the Dub. I first watched it Subbed, I enjoyed it a lot but didn't quite understand it 100%, was fairly new to subbed anime at the time though. I rewatched it all in Dub & it was easier to follow. I understood the plot but missed a bit on some of the motivations.

My Hero Academia, the anime itself isn't that bad, but I started to hate it thanks to the community overhyping every fight and taking every little criticism as a personal attack.

And well one of the most important part of animes for me is the community, and if I can't have a normal conversation without having to praise every bit of the show, then why even bother watching in the first place ?

But then again I'm no expert, it's just from my point of view, I'm aware that this is just a small minority of people in the community, but a vocal one.
They are like that since many troll that fanbase. I think some of them got trolled a lot. I only seen them be very aggressive towards people if they say stuff like comparing it to Boku no Pico, completely inaccurate and inflammatory stuff like that. Only thing that I find annoying is intentionally misrepresenting a series, but I don't comment in such cases since that's feeding the trolls. A balanced point of view, well thought out/constructive criticism is completely fine.

I haven't watched it yet but I do expect it's going to join this list for me. So far it seems the thing I hate the most are shows with positive qualities that might make them worth watching but ruined by excessive sex/Ecchi.

It's not like "I can't stand it", but I really couldn't find the appeal of FMAB. I was bored for almost the entirety of the 32 episodes I watched.

Jojo, I like the show, but hype and meme are freaking everywhere. I can't stand Jojo's crazy fandom. Also I never understood the hype with FLCL, I though it was meh okay. Last one would be Attack on Titan, that hype train was crazy it was everywhere, but now I don't care about it, it just another show to me. There were other show, but I don't try to hate on show. But hype does ruin a show for me sometime, that why I sometime just wait for show to be over that season or when people stop talking about it. That why I avoided Your name for very long while, it was alright, admit if I saw it earlier, I might have hating it.

Well, you got to over 200 replies without anyone losing their shit or resorting to throwing insults around so I'd say not really :P

Don't get me wrong, JoJo is a fantastic show, one of my favourites actually ..but as you just said, it's fandom is wild. 80% of the time, I can't be bothered with it.

Your lie in April,

I really did not like a single main character but the blonde girl and there were so many moments that dragged and hated the chemistry among the cast.

Side characters were great.
Persona 4 (Golden obviously) is better than Persona 5 imo

Clannad. The story progressed so slowly that I actually fell asleep.
Toradora. No need to explain why.

Clannad - That would be definitely this. Its not because of the graphics I have seen way worse. The story is just so terrible it makes me want to scratch out my eyes. I forced myself to see everything from it once and never again.

My hero academia. The mc just comes off as a boring character. He’s got big aspirations and is a nice guy, but that’s about as far as it goes. He doesn’t seem to really have anything about his character that makes him unique. He’s like Gon from HxH except lacking in all the ways that Gon is a good character. All he got down is the nice guy who wears green and works hard. He doesn’t seem to have any nitty gritty aspects about him (he is nowhere near as bitter as he should be abt the way he was born imo) his morals seem completely upright and straightforward, and he just comes off as boring. I didn’t get too far into the manga before I just quit because Deku never did anything to draw me in.

No Game No Life. I cannot understand how it has such a high MAL average or acclaim from critics and audiences. It’s a crappy generic isekai with Mary Sue protagonists, one-dimensional supporting characters, gratuitous fanservice (including sexualization of prepubescent girls, which is incredibly off-putting to me), and ass-pulls in the guise of “strategies”. It does NOT, under any circumstances, deserve to have a higher average rating than Neon Genesis Evangelion, Ghost In The Shell, Serial Experiments Lain, Paranoia Agent, Macross, Akira, Trigun, Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, and several other classic anime.

Mahoutsukai no Yome (The Ancient Magus' Bride) was boring af. A big mess and bad characters.

Very much THIS. If anything, the OVA is far superior and interesting.
I'm glad I watched that one, but I couldn't stand the series, even a bit: so I dropped it.

One Outs. I burst out laughing every time I see people saying it's a good sports anime. Same for bringing up it's "psychological" aspect.


I didn't have a definite answer until I saw your comment. Same! That anime felt like there were no characters, they're all dull. I laughed every time I see someone saying it's better than Major or Daiya.

I feel you guys.

Definitely Terror in Resonance, Tokyo Ghoul, and Attack on Titan. Season 1 of AOT was good enough, but I really don’t see the appeal now. Tokyo Ghoul just isn’t that great. I don’t enjoy it. Terror in Resonance literally only has its soundtrack. Everything else is bad.

I can't understand how Death Note is considered such a masterpiece. Light is such a dumb character and some of the plot twists were so fucking unbelievably stupid I hilariously laughed at my monitor.

Fate / Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works, both seasons. I mean, I liked them, the animation is gorgeous and has good fights, but I can not understand how it has such a high rank. I think they were just ok.

Zankyou no Terror was an interesting anime, but I wouldn't say it's an 8.20. Way too short with some wasted characters like Five.

Girls und Panzer, Date a Live and No Game No Life just to name a few. As the old saying goes, "popularity doesn't equal quality" and "to each their own".

These anime are highly popular, especially Girls und Panzer, but none of them clicked with me. Couldn't get past the third episode with any of those anime.

KonoSuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World — a friend showed me this and we watched the first two episodes together. They were laughing and thinking it was the best thing ever, but I was just rather bored and the comedy wasn’t for me. Also not a genre I typically watch.

Lol, my friend said the same thing until I forced her to watch it. Hell, even I thought that at first, but once you get used to the animation it's fine.

OT: Since all the main shows have been covered, i'll just go out on a limb and say Dragon Maid. That show is wayy too overrated for what it's worth. Of course the hype has died down a lot, but during the time it was annoying. Just an FYI that was my first anime ever. What a way to start anime.

Kinda agree, because it started overusing its jokes way too much. Kanna's cute, but that's pretty much it after a while.

I don't have such a thing... Is hard to ''can't stand an anime'' when I own my laptop, and I have all the freedom in watching what I want to watch, and ignore what I am not interested in. If we were still stuck in the TV age, then yes that would have been possible... For example I can't stand Turkish movies - the TV is in the area were we eat, and sometimes at night, when we get dinner I am stuck hearing that ugly language, because my litter brother and sister like them (no offense to Turkish peoples... but I really don't like the sound of your language... sorry). But they don't force me watching any anime I don't like, so I am fine. I guess the fact that I am generally incapable of feeling hate - because I consider it a very boring and wasteful emotion, or something like that - also helps in not making a passion from hating random anime I don't watch anyway like other peoples do...
