Every person has different and unique taste when it comes to anime.A certain anime might be considered as a masterpiece to someone,the same anime might be considered as horrible to another.

There are some people who have distaste for a certain anime that everyone else seems to enjoy and love.They can't comprehend why others like that particular anime so much.

Is it the same with you? Is there an anime which you hate but everyone else seems to like? If yes,what is it?

Not really hate it, and even though I might get slammed for saying this, but Death Note triggers me. I dropped it because of the constant monologuing that it's more better off as a radio show.

I don't get what the appeal of durarara is. I also enjoyed no game no life and angel beats but it seems that a lot of people consider them to be the second coming of jesus while I consider them just decent above average shows. Also K and the ancient magus' bride are both garbage.
I really enjoy those "helicopter ride" memes

nekopara, and the rest of watered down hentai visual novel adaptations that cut out the selling point of the original product.

It has the potential to be good but its just badly executed imo.

Shield Hero. So frustrating, dropped it but keep thinking I should try and finish it.

Re Zero. Don’t understand what peeps saw in this.

Shiki-hated the ending, hated the progression of the story and the overall gloomy atmosphere. It just rubbed me the wrong way.

Gankutsuou-I think the visuals look really f-ing bad. The colors just don't work at all and make it borderline unwatchable.

I've not seen much hate toward Death Parade. Yet it's one if not the worst anime I've ever watched.

Code Geass and Angel Beats.
Both are popular and even Code Geass has both seasons in top 50 but I couldn't care for it.
Angel Beats doesn't seem to have purpose and has emotional bait to draw out feels.It didn't work for me.
Code Geass takes itself too seriously and falls flat onto it's face.It relys on shock factor and that also didn't work on me.Code Geass has a bit from every genre and still it fails at everything.

It's not a TV series but an anime movie. 5 Centimeters per Second is exactly what you are asking of me. When I watched Your Name, The Place We Promised in our Early Days, The Garden of Words, Journey to Agartha and I loved all of them, I had huge expectations from 5 Centimeters per Second. But I was left high and dry. Felt like wasted a whole hour watching it.
SAO Progressive needs an anime. It is the real SAO not the rushed original.

End of Evangelion. I never liked Shinji cowering and whining from the very beginning and he did that for most of the movie, which undermined his character growth in the main series. Beyond that, he committed a lot of despicable things against Asuka, both in reality and in his mind. He was like a completely different person in EoE. I didn't expect him to be an OP MC, but I didn't expect him to be a complete scum either. I couldn't enjoy a single second of EoE. Personally, it is currently the worst piece of media I have ever laid my eyes on.

Gintama Silver Soul part 2 is another one. The main fight was just incredibly drawn out and it was filled with characters coming in to save the day at the last minute. It was very different from the other serious arcs and big fights in the series. Instead of being this amazing fight that the series has been building up to, it was just a lame generic fight and completely fell flat.

I also didn't really like Death Note because past episode 10 it went in a completely different direction, but that seems to be a common opinion.

I love 5 Centimeters Per Second. I think what turns a lot of people off is that the first segment leads you to believe this is going to be a touching love story, but it really turns out to be a realistic and slightly tragic story about two people who grew apart and then were forced to move on with their lives. I would have liked a happier story, but I love this bittersweet one more.

But I CAN'T STAND Lucky Star. It is the worst fucking anime ever made, and I have no clue how people can enjoy it. No Game No Life would be right there alongside it, if it weren't for a few of the games being moderately cleverly executed.

This glorious signature was made by @Mayumi!

I am the Arbiter of Absolute Truth, and here is my wisdom:

"Having exquisite animation does not a good anime make.
Hating the classics doesn't make you smart--just contrarian.
There is nothing wrong with liking slice-of-life/iyashikei.
There is no 'Golden Age.' There is always top-shelf anime.
You should be watching both blue jacket Lupin III series."

Toradora was the most annoying show that I have ever seen. I have never experienced something quite like it. Im generally a very open minded person and I always try to love something when I give it a try, but I never left a show with this many negative feelings before.

Mononoke and Monster. When taken together they feel like the two far ends on this spectrum from rainbow vomit to monochrome, but even when taken individually they're just rubbish. Monster is boring, ugly and left a weird taste in my mouth and Mononoke might've been good if they'd completely overhauled every aspect of the visual design (and this is coming from someone who likes The Tatami Galaxy and Gankutsuou).

Re:Life - boring, unrelatable. One of the worst shows I’ve seen

RokuAka - this one is a disaster, everyone is lame, storytelling is extra lame. I don’t remember why I even started watching this one. And it’s rated 7.3 here - wtf??

BNHA - boring, annoying. I only liked All Might and Todoroki (thanks to this show for introducing me to this little fella)

Kuroshitsuji - I don’t hate it in general, but the fillers (I guess half of the series was a filler?) were extremely boring and nothing made sense at all

Zankyou no Terror - hate is a strong word to describe my feelings towards this one, I was more... disappointed? It started really good and then went downhill pretty fast. Boring and confusing - that’s all I can call it.

Grand Blue - I dropped it after ep.2, as it’s unfunny and unrelatable. Can’t see the appeal of this show at all. OST was dope though

Enen no Shouboutai - just awful. Extremely unfunny jokes and MC is very unlikable

Hoshiai no Sora - god, I wish Japan never produces anything like this in the future. Maki and his monologue - pure cringe and the reason I dropped the show

Code Geass R2. Now Code Geass was one of my first anime I watched in Japanese, and while I watched a lot of anime before it this was around the time I found out anime was it's own medium. This made me love the first season and I feel nostalgic about it, but even back then when my standards were the lowest they could be for anime, I just hated that second season. Every flaw I ignored from the first season got worse, more flaws and awful, AWFUL characters were introduced alongside making the already insufferable cast worse, and while the "intelligent" solutions Lelouch used in the first season were a bit too contrived, it was at least better compared to season 2 where there were too many battles where Lelouch's side would straight up win because of better Knightmares. The ending does NOT make up for the two dozen shitty episodes. The first season is still pretty shitty, but I can give it a pass for nostalgia's sake, season 2 has always been the worst though. R2 was like the ice water someone poured on me to wake my ass up right in the middle of a fun dream.

Grand Blue also annoys me, because I actually love the manga. Comedy anime always suffered from low production values and being unable to adapt the comedic timing from the manga, and I just got used to it. Nichijou was a nice exception, but when Hinamatsuri came out I was given hope that maybe comedy anime was trending upward, and that I could look forward to the anime adaptation of what was my favorite comedy manga at the time. Nope, this show literally encompassed everything wrong with comedy anime. The comedic timing was terrible, and the only anime with worse sound design was Umaru. Punchlines suffered quite a bit, the graphic change and heavy music choice started like a frame too early and the punchline lingered like a second too long, ruining ANY semblance of impact from these punchlines. Since the director was involved in Gintama I thought he'd know better as that show despite suffering from some typical comedy anime pitfalls was still able to divert our attention from them and make us laugh, but no, it ended up being a prime example of shitty comedy adaptations instead. This one really made me sad as not only did I love the Grand Blue manga, but I was just absolutely enthralled by the Hinamatsuri anime, and I watched Asobi Asobase after Grand Blue, rubbing salt in the wound.

Last one is Your Lie in April. Felt too emotionally manipulative, did not give a shit about any of the characters, and felt a bit too repetitive with the main character's suffering being constantly noted, then he joins a music thing, other people are shown to be really good, main character suffers from trauma, gets over it right in the middle of the performance and does well to everyone's shock and they're unsure how to handle it, and then it all ends only to happen yet again. I don't hate this show enough to really lump it in with the previous two, but I just think it's annoying how people used to put this show on a pedestal when it came to emotional anime when 3-gatsu exists and did everything infinitely better.

I don't remember hating any anime. Anyways, I disliked parts of some of them. But hating is taking it to another level. Did it offend me, is it a real person? I think I have better things to do than hate a show.

I disliked in SnK
. Also I don't like the beginning of some of the slow burner shows, like Monster. Even if it's one of my favourites and I consider it of the highest quality, it was pretty boring at first. I think that for me a show has to either start with what's interesting right off the bat, or make me interested in what's about to happen 10 episodes later by highlighting mysterious themes. Yakusoku no Neverland and Steins;gate showed potential at the beginning and I just knew something out of the ordinary was about to happen, reason why it didn't feel boring.

You are not alone in this fight. 3-gatsu does the main character infinitely better. Hibike! does the musical performances infinitely better.


Also, Plastic Memories. I don't understand how people can think this obvious waifu bait is a good drama.

I haven't actually seen Hibike yet but that actually makes me happy to hear the musical performance is better, the music in YLiA is actually the only thing I really liked about that show, but was ruined pretty quickly by the MC's flip floppy performance.

Also while I quite liked Plastic Memories, it felt just as emotionally manipulative as YLiA. I was able to forgive it because I liked the show and it's premise, but it was a bit too heavy handed and I wish it took a more subtle approach.

Shield Hero. I read the first 15 chapters of the manga 2-3 years ago and it didn't seem bad, so, when I found out there will be an anime adaptation, I was very excited about it.
Well... it turned out to be the first anime ever to annoy the hell out of me. I finished it just because I didn't want to drop it, since last year I decided to clear my dropped list and didn't want to add another one that I'll have to finish eventually. I was sure that if I drop it I would never come back to it... In the end I gave it a 1.
Usually, I give anime 5> scores because even if some are "garbage" some people worked on them and tried to do their best. But Shield Hero is an exception. Iniatially, I gave it a 5, but I'm ashamed to say that I dropped its score by one digit everytime I saw someone praising it.
Did you know? There are four kinds of people. A person that will never ride a wrong bus. A person that will only ride a wrong bus. A person that thinks he is on the wrong bus and he immediately changes it. A person that is on the wrong bus and knows it, but continues riding it anyway.

I never understood why katanagatari is so highly rated. As an episodic anime, the color scheme might attract people to it but the incredibly stale dialogue for a whole hour gets old real quick. I don't really hate the show but I was pretty hyped before watching it.

I don't hate it, like at all, but
asobi asobase is pretty highly rated and the reviews are overwhelmingly postitive, now, i know that humor is 'subjective' and the way people perceive comedy is different to one another but i just kinda did not get the appeal at all, like some episodes were good but then there were some that were unbearable and it just felt like they were abusing the same funny faces and seiyuus screaming their lungs out and i just got sick of it immediately .

- Violet Evergarden: beautiful art but no depth at all, there are too many overdramatic moments and every character is forgettable

- Steins;Gate 0: a mess with cheap animation, the score would be lower if it wasn't the follow-up to a highly acclaimed series

- Your Lie in April: I don't hate this one but I think that is overrated, like Violet Evergarden it doesn't have a lot of depth. It's basically: classical music + sad scenes = a masterpiece according to everyone

Agree. also the last Arc has the most annoying villian ever.

other popular ones I cant get into

Bungo Stray Dogs (Cool Characters but sh*t story)
MHA
Demon Slayer
(I´m just tired of Shonen Action shows)
Naruto (MC is unbereable)
Classroom of the Elite ( Unlikeable Characters, nothing interesting happens)
Yakousou no Neverland (Slow and Boring)

Here we go again with this thread:
-BNHA (boring and predictable story, uninteresting characters)
-Madoka Magica (basic good vs evil anime, but somehow people considere it to be 'masterpiece' just because they put lollies as the MCs)
-Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu (most irritating MC in existance)
-Re Zero (became boring after episode 5)

Not great, not terrible:
-FMAB (first 50 episode were pretty mediocre, which is kinda weird for a series that holds that no. 1 spot)
-Hunter x Hunter (everything fell apart after the Yorknew Arc, Chimera arc was too long and the narrator spoke more than the whole cast, if it wasn't for the Meruem vs Netero fight that whole arc would be pretty bland)

AoT- very slow, poorly written characters IMO, and a lot of irrelevant dialogues and monologues

Fire force - at first it seemed like a cool anime because I liked the idea (and I love soul eater) but no, I got a lot of unfunny jokes, shitty characters, a lot of fun service ... Disgusting

Demon Slayer- I don't think anything needs to be said about this. The beginning itself starts with a cliché and they use it too much, make fun of the main villain in the beginning, lol. also, I don't like MC, no, not his demon-loli sister either!

Naruto Shippuden- just oof

I dropped it like 8 episodes in because it was so boring and the characters were either generic or I hated them.
I'm ready for season 2. Hope it's not trash. Anyways, enjoy your day today

I really hate Devilman crybaby but alot of people consider it masterpiece and it even won AOTY 2018 crunchyroll awards

Also Angel beats I don't understand why people like it it felt too forced and tried too hard to be emotional show just for audience to cry but I was laughing at the end same problem I had with YLIA but I think it is at least better than Angel beats in terms of good character writing

yes oh my gosh its the worst feeling ever to not like something else that everyone loves. glad to see someone else going through the same thing. the biggest one for me is steinsgate which is basically the best anime ever for evrybody but ifind it the worst. Second worst would be overlord and yet it has a high rating and a fanbase but to me it is absolute trash. noragami as well which i really do like but because of hiyori my enjoyment of the whole series went down and yet everybody loves noragami.

Many of those mainstream series.

As much as i love Naruto and Bleach, i somehow cannot force myself to watch series like HxH, BnHA and SnK. I finished TG manga and it was really hard for me to find something i liked about it.
Same for movies like Koe no Katachi, i just can't understand why it's called a masterpiece for someone.
Oh yes, and SAO. First few episodes were maybe good, but...

To be honest, lately there are really no series i can watch. Last few animes based on mangas i was reading were just terrible and i gave up on watching.

Parayste the Maxim. The characters were unlikable idiots and the "music" straight up hurt my ears.

I was also going in expecting a horror anime but really what I got was a battle shounen with a horror coat of paint. :/

3 Anime immediately come to mind:

Spirited Away - it just kinda felt like a bunch of random stuff just happening, with none of it really being entertaining to me.

Paranoia Agent - I'll admit that this is one of the first anime that I watched that wasn't a mainstream shounen like Dragonball or One Piece or something, so I might like it more if I watched it today, but back then it was just too weird and pretty boring.

Tsuki ga Kirei - Hands down probably the most boring show I've ever watched. Might be somewhat realistic and I generally don't dislike slower paced shows, but watching 12 episodes of middle school students texting each other was just not appealing.

I actually do not have any contribution to this list, save a minor criticism, having read through the thread...

This shall come off as quite pretentious and condescending, for which I offer an apology beforehand:

Regarding some of the series listed ("Monster," "Hunter x Hunter," "Shiki," "Spirited Away," "Paranoia Agent," and others), the reasons given for disliking them are "boring," "couldn't get into it," "slow," "random stuff happening," etc.
I have no issue with people disliking these types of series or films, but for reasons like these?

An example, using "Paranoia Agent." If it seemed boring, or too difficult to understand, then maybe not enough attention was directed toward the progression of the story? Maybe the reason for it being boring is that the watcher found it underwhelming in its method of delivery; if that is the case, say so. Having not seen the series in a few years, it still resonates deeply due to its thematic material, what with the power of mass media and the reality of fantasy.

"Monster," likewise, is heavily thematic. So someone dislikes it for being ugly, or boring? That is no reason. Maybe the story did not grab you, and your enjoyment comes from people swinging magic blades and charging superattacks, which is totally acceptable! Not everyone shall enjoy a series. But, it is not that the series is "boring," so much as it holds little value or interest!

So, maybe my main issue is this: the terminology at play in this thread is as if the series is at fault for an individual's views on it? There is absolutely nothing wrong with having an opinion dissimilar to that of the crowd! If you dislike something, give your reasoning, not something wrong with the show.

Some concessions: if the show truly sucks, then go all-out reaming it! "Mars of Destruction," in no universe, can be considered good. But the thread topic here is about beliefs opposite the majority.

Again, I apologize; this turned into a rant. Feel free to bash me for my condescending, pretentious, partially hypocritical, and holier-than-thou attitude. I totally deserve it. This is just an issue I have with much criticism of entertainment media, which has finally been unleashed...I suppose that means people in this thread are the unsuspecting and undeserving targets of my harshness. Sorry.

Hate is way too strong for how I felt for it, but the Monogatari Series didn't quite grab my attention like the rather large fanbase build around it.
It did make me feel a little guilty; but hey, I tried it, and it just didn't vibe with me. That's the way of the world.

Now if you just want a broad sense of hate... just the harem genre, but that's more out of a scar it left in my early anime watching days.
"You know you've reached peak quality when a doujin is better than the actual source series." (I'm looking at you, To LOVE-Ru)

Just to list a couple of biases when I blabber on about them.
Likes: A good story, characters, writing, romance, a good plot twist or something that breaks expectations (In a good way), 'backstory', and small breasts justice.
Dislikes: Bad romance, too much fanservice, the harem genre, yuri, yaoi, and bad writing.

Some things coming to mind...

-Makoto Shinkai movies (all of them rehash the same focus on long-distance relationships with some sort of gimmick. My reception to them over the years has been quite mixed in spite of the large fanfare they get.)
-Sword Art Online (Felt like an otaku gratification title of some sort with how Kirito gets by.)
-Clannad (I get why people like it and After Story. Just found the series was riddled with a good number of issues coming from its VN roots that keep me from being on the bandwagon for it.)
-Neon Genesis Evangelion (Do see where it had areas of potential to be one of the all-time greats. Unfortunately, Hideaki Anno had to ruin things by making the characters unlikable angst buckets and dabbling too much into existentialism.)

kimetsu no yaiba and boku no hero academia.
I regard them as trash but it appears the majority of anime fans love the show, so there's that.
