the worst anime you've seen this year
doesn't has to be released in 2019

i just finished terra formars recently
words along won't suffice to describe my afterthoughts
it embodies the notion that some manga shouldn't be adapted

one punch man season 2 what a letdown

And I'm pretty sure this corner of the world
Is the loneliest corner in the whole world

Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody was really terrible, it did a boring job with its premise.

Pupa was horrendous, everything in it is so bad that it was a fun watch

I wanted to say OPM2 as well...I’d definitely say it was the most disappointing.

...but unfortunately, I did watch Fairy Gone this year...which is going to be pretty hard to top, especially considering I have rather selective taste (I tend to only watch anime that are being hyped or are produced by a reputable studio). Jesus Christ though, Fairy Gone was a flaming turd. As dull as OPM was this year, at least it wasn’t as bad as that heaping pile of trash.

Worst full-length series: Chuunibyou

Worst feature film: Mirai no Mirai

Worst short series: Pupa (I just wanted to see the atrocity for myself)

Worst music video: Agitated Screams of Maggots

Btooom! ... literally the very definition of a schlocky, B-movie in anime.

However, it still did entertain me more than the Aria series, which, despite having better characters and storyline, was probably the most boring experience with an anime I've ever had. I don't think is bad technically speaking, but it was definitely not for me.

Handa-kun disappointed me the most. They took away everything that made Barakamon enjoyable and replaced it with a dull cast and a single joke repeated over the course of 12 episodes. Is Handa even the main character here? Because the side characters probably get more screentime than him.

Index S3 was also a shitshow. I've been complaining every single episode of it lol.

Bungo Stray Dogs s1. I kept waiting for it to get better. Then I kept waiting for it to end already.

Arifuretrash. To think I used to be so invested in the LN. Isekai is a joke and I've lost all hope for it.

saranzanmai. the plot had some promise and it was a kind of different take on a few over used cliches but the story was a let down, the main characters were poorly fleshed out and there was no clear villain or end game for the season.

I usually love short anime but god was Nobunaga-sensei bad. They had a chance with the "send her back in time" plot but nope decided to throw 18 kabillion characters into the story for ecchi scenes.

Bleh.

Kenja no Majo. Because of it, I have skipped every isekai from that season since I feel I have had enough of those for this year at least.

Going solely based on what was the most frustrating to watch, probably the second season of Spice and Wolf.

How to take a good first season and a great promising premise and shoot it to shit in no time. I don't believe I rated a show watched this year lower.

The worst anime I've seen this year was Wo Jaio Bai Xiaofei(2nd season of Zombie Brother). I really like the 1st season but the 2nd was awful

Easily Chika Gentou Gekiga morbid curiosity got the best of me. It was just as awful as people said it was.

A runner up was Yosuga no Sora which was another case of curiousity (how bad could it be) and it didn't disappoint in that it was awful as hell.

I guess most of users post some isekai anime (like always)
For me it was One punch man - both seasons were deleted from my list because it wasn't worth to be even in drop list so boring (don't know why but it seems for me like typical "comedy" american stuff - nothing for me) - just my opinion

That thing barely qualifies as a series to begin with lol

It's just a game commercial.

- "Senko-san" - bored me to death , only enjoyed the first episode

- "Tate no Yuusha" - I hate it so much

- "Dororo" - i'm so disappointed with how everything turned out

- "Bungou Stray Dogs" - up until episode 9 it was Fantastic , 10 - 11 were disappointing , 12 is straight up shit like holy fuck the whole Atsushi/Akutagawa fight was so cringe

from a thematic standpoint, btooom is so poorly executed that many of the guy's(forgot his name) encounters with different other survivors don't feel purposeful at all.
But yes i do agree with you it has entertaining value.

sadly most isekai anime are plainly unimaginative since they mostly adopt the same narrative/conceptual formula: guy gets killed in an accident and later on reincarnated in another world -> more likely than not is 'special' in one way or another, mostly being overpowered -> element of harem

it would be nice if there are more variations

OPM S2, the worst quality drop off I have ever seen between seasons.
Kanata, Dropped as soon as they bought in the SJW trannie shit.
Cop Craft, didn't even seem like an anime.
Carole, another western cartoon that's probably descended into SJW shit about how strong women are.

King's game it was so bad as a horror thriller that it game me alot of laughs. If they have said that it was a spoof of the gern than I would have given it a good rating as a comedy anime.

Hitori no Shita; what a bunch of crap. Really makes me not want to watch any more Chinese animations.
Ring ni Kakero; ridiculous super power boxing with racial stereotypes.
Akihabara Dennougumi; ugly anime with one of the most annoying MCs I've seen.
Bungou Stray Dogs 3rd season; same shit as it's always been. Edgelord fodder.
W'z; almost made me puke. Not a joke. This anime makes you have motion sickness.
Beatless; pure fucking shit.
Aquarion Evol; a plot so confusing it didn't even know what it was itself.

... Why do I even bother with anime.

Since I don't retain drops I'm not entirely sure, but purely from memory it would be either Index III or Shield Hero. I'm sure that there were worse shows out there than those 2 in the last year, but I dodged those successfully unlike these 2.

There are about five+ but the worst single anime of 2019 so far is "Manaria Friends".

Reason is because I actually had high hopes for it and had been anticipating it for a few years.

I've only seen 13 anime from this year so far but Kakeguruixx is the worst out of those. Sad because I actually liked the first season.

OPM 2 too much of a quality drop to watch (it was quite decent but it wasn't worth watching anime if u 've already saw it in manga)
Gunjou no Magmell - lol
Fairy Gone - quality and story pure bullshit and that drawn background was ticking me off

Answer: King's Game (Ousama Game The Animation).

In gonna preface this that excessive gore is fine with me, i love it when shit gets unnecessarily bloody like at the end of Happily ever after in Hollywood or hateful eight, or any Tarantino really. Baki got nice and gruesome when it did not need to. Fate got punishing to watch when the wrong person gets brutalized. The final kizumonogatari, gakkougarushi at its darkest, etc.

But there was one anime called King's Game (Ousama Game The Animation). An anime full of characters impossible to like in any way. A principle character like Malty from shield hero, but serves no effective purpose with the shit she does in the series. EXTREMELY gore ridden scenes that are not for the faint of heart that more play with the idea of, man this is super cool and edgy. Stuff like (spoilers) "Wouldn't be neat if we fuck with a girls mental state and trust of her class that we trick her into thinking that her class was gonna vote for her to die, so she attempts suicide in front of the class only to learn that all she had to do was reveal he crush?" And then another guy replies to that with "Thats cool, but lets go further and have her die in the hospital because she was noncontinuous and could not fulfill a future role."

It proceeds with these gruesome scenes and does nothing with it. I get it there can always by that psycho thriller that pushes the dial to the limit with gore and makes that gore scarring based of the story. But they never did anything more than have people get shocked faces and protag-kun give the basic "you are hurting my nakama" bullshit.

Final Statement: And you thought Another was as bad as it gets...

Not the worst but I expected a great movie and watched a very mediocre one with annoying unsympathetic characters - Mirai no Mirai.

The "worst" anime I've seen this year would be.

movie:
Boku no Hero Academia the Movie 1: Futari no Hero

series:
Kenja no Mago
(Kimetsu no Yaiba) (Considering the "hype" I'm witnessing recently, I might be inclined to give it a second chance to see if I'll change up my mind a bit. Not saying that I think I'll begin liking it, this would be too far fetched, but I might be becoming less negative about it, instead.)

MV:
Attouteki Vivid Days

Irregular at magic highschool- I can't even find anything good about this series. Main character is a joke and the side characters are even bigger joke.
