I haven't watched much anime so I haven't seen any actual terrible shows, but I watched No Game No Life, which was okay, but SEVERELY overrated

The first episode of an anime called Bem. It was so bad I couldn't continue any further, and it has to be the most vacuous, cliched thing EVER.

going by shows that aired this year - kyochuu rettou, followed somewhat closely by joshikausei. enen no shouboutai has potential though to join the bottom three.

devilman crybaby. just gross and offensive. which i'm usually into, but meh
also something about ryou's character wasn't really... ryou

the stuff i saw in crybaby would probably make nagai himself blush, and that's saying a lot
didn't think yuasa of all people had it in him. not sure whether to clap or shake my head

That has got to be Detroit Metal City. It was extremely grating, and the writing was so monotonous.

There hasn't been any anime from previous years that I have watched this 2019 that I particularly disliked, tbh. Now, if we talk about shows that have aired this year, either Shield Hero or Gunjou no Magmell.

The first was a mess, the characters were either boring or uninteresting (the three heroines being a prime example), with only the slavemaster being a bit good (and he appears at best in 3 or 4 episodes), the story was stalled in the first half, taking time in side quests, and the second hald was equally boring, with the part of the CGI chickens being especially horrible. The antagonists are either bastard nobles straight out of Akame ga Kill or are incompetent fools that would make the Team Rocket from Pokemon look like Light Yagami.
The show tried to make me hate Myne, but I found her ridiculous and hilarious instead and
It didn't helped that the series couldn't decide if Naofumi was an antihero or just a normal hero with a jerky side. The three other heroes were patethic, with their whole existence being make Naofumi look like Jesus towards everyone, and considering that Ren and Itsuki were at first portrayed as jerks with some common sense, that, by the end of the series, end being no better than Motoyasu, it's very sad.
Its only saving grace is that the last arc at least looked kinda interesting with the new characters introduced, but, sadly, it was too late to save the anime.

Respecting Magmell, though the synopsis at first sounded interesting, it quickly devolved into a boring episodic show with an unlikeable, cocky main character and poor worldbuilding. Even though they tease a bit some plot regarding the past of the main character, it doesn't goes anywhere. It seems that the producers realized that they needed some kind of plot to spice things up, so they introduced a sudden serious plotline for the last three episodes, but it ended being as bad as the previous ones.
I also hated a lot the episode where the main character and his loli extort and blackmail the shop owner. It felt so gratuitous and the show tried hard to make the shop owner come as a idiotic buffoon who deserves everything that happens to him, when he's just a man trying to live his life in peace and didn't do anything remotely wrong to deserve that, making him sympathetic and the main characters a bunch of assholes. If they wanted me to laugh, they failed hard. I think that's the reason why I consider Magmell a bit worse than Shield Hero, since that one, despite its flaws, at least tried something.

Maou-sama, Retry! is a solid contender for the title, however, but I will wait a bit till its end to properly judge (though I don't think its going to improve much). Also, even though technically, it aired in 2018, the new season of Fairy Tail has been absolute trash. It's not only that the plot is awful, but the visuals and animation are pretty bad too. They really made an adaptation worthy of the worst arc of the series.

Domestic na Kanojo was a pretty horrible show
Help the industry and buy Blu-rays and DVD's.
Noragami is the best anime ever.

Hametsu no Mars Too ambitious for the amount of time...and I plain didn't like it. I suffered through it to fulfill a challenge requirement.
Makai Tenshou Horrible...weird, religious, rapey (that's not even a word but that's what it was...weird rape stuff for no reason).

Thank you! At least someone agrees with me on that. That’s one of those anime where I didn’t understand the hype at all. It was a decent series, but at the time, it was on a lot of people AOTY lists and I could not comprehend why.

I watched the first Zoids anime and it bored me to almost literal death. I've also tried to watch some more Black Clover which hurts.

It was Isekai Cheath Magician by far ahead... I can't believe that cheesy synpopsis gets to be LN series and then they also find a crappy studio to make cheapest anime adaptation. I think author has friends who are important in the industry... Other than that Yakusoku no Neverland was a big disappointment after that first episode.

Kekkai Sensen - predictable and boring story, generic characters good good music tho.

Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai - cringey version of monogatari series. Almost all the characters are unlikeable. Lame bath scenes. Like wtf, why would you want to talk to a girl while she's taking a bath. Just a stupid excuse to make a fanservice.

Manaria Friends from 2019, even though it looked good, the plot and all else was boring.

Shoumetsu Toshi also from 2019 is the worst anime I recently watched, very annoying and pissed me off.

woowee the art was good but god was the episodes laggy and painful to watch
they stretch everything for all the wrong reasons and my god do they not have a common sense of timing? it would be one scene of that guy staring at something, and it goes on for 3 seconds too long and then they start speaking it's like, run-time much?

Arifureta, it is really bad. No consistency, generic plot, cheap CGI, bad drawing, voices, etc...


Decide once every certain number of years which members of the ruling class will oppress and crush the people in parliament: this is the true essence of bourgeois parliamentarism, not only in the constitutional parliamentary monarchies but in the most democratic republics

Kaguya-sama is worst I ever seen this year.

There are more bad anime than this one, that's for sure.

Of the limited number I've seen this year, probably Fire Force. It's not a bad anime by any means, just average.
