What's the worst anime year on your opinion?

Now I know it isn't new years yet aka 2021, but still I'm going to have to go for 2020.

According to anime.plus it's 1991 mostly due to crap OVAs and films.

Yeah 2020 has been a mediocre year for anime at best.

Edit: Ishuzoku Reviewers is unironically the best non-sequel anime that has aired this year. I said what I said. I meant what I said and I'll say it again.

I think 1991 is a good contender but I'm unfortunately lacking experience with pre 2000s anime so it's far from certain. It's definitly not 2020 though, 2020 actually has a fair amound of decent stuff, not a great year but it wasn't shit or anything.

I measure how good or bad years are according to original anime and not sequels or continuations. Given this, since I can't think of any original anime premiered in 2015 I can safely call myself a fan of, that's my pick.

Honestly I'd say 2020, the anime this year has been pretty mediocre
If you're reading this, I'm probably watching Your Name right now.

2020 has definitely had the weakest lineup I've seen. Nothing especially memorable except maybe Jujutsu Kaisen.

If you're excluding sequels from the anime for the year, then 2020 has honestly sucked.

We've got some decent anime this season, but nothing else has been very good.

fr people be spoiled af....every year has its goods and bads. plus, people shouldn’t be comparing groups of anime like that in general. the only thing that the anime within each group have in common with certainty is the year they were released.

I have at least 10 or more rated sample size starting from 1985 for each of the years to current. Using that, I have 2001 as the worst year (both weighted average and average seem to nearly agree) and 1991 and 1994 as the followers.

Guys be positive at least we got Jujutsu Kaisen this year.If I had to choose other than 2020 I would go for 2017 because it was the most mediocre year so far except for Made in abyss and Black clover.

2020 if I had to choose since I started watching in like 2015. My mean score for this year is 6.7, a little bit lower than 2015 and 2019.

According to anime+ I've given lowest score in average to year 2007 so I'll give that as an answer. Many say 2020 hasn't been too good, but I haven't seen enough anime from 2020 to say anything because I've been mostly catching up with older anime this year.

If I go by MALgraphs function, it would have to be 2014 for me (obviously only taking years for which I have at least some kind of data, which is 2009 - 2019 with over 30 shows at least) with 6.71. Doesn't mean obviously that the year was shit per se, I mean, thats the year with Baby Steps and Fate/stay night UBW, but at the same time it has shows like Shingeki no Bahamut and Akame ga Kill, so, well...

If we take every entry year, it'd be 1992, because I hate Shin-chan, and it got 3 points from me and is my only anime in 1992 for now.
On the same note, 2020, which only has 16 titles in my list for now, is at 6.47, worse than even 2014.

My lowest average on anime+ is 1990, but it's a very close race with 1991. 1992 has been called, but it had some good movies (TV was lackluster, though). 1995 has been called too, but it had Evangelion and Ghost in the Shell - just no.

1990 had some "pretty good" shows and OVA, but lacks genuine classics. Best entries are Watashi no Ashinaga Ojisan, Fushigi no Umi no Nadia, Lodoss-tou Senki, and a Patlabor remake. And that's already it with memorable entries.

1991 is similarly lackluster, but at least created three "elitist" classics: Oniisama e..., Ushiro no Shoumen Daare and Omoide Poroporo. There are also Roujin Z, Otaku no video and City Hunter. So it wasn't that good for TV, but had two S-tier movies and several decent OVA.

Thus: 1990 was the worst year for me, beating runner ups 1991 and 1992.

Only year so far I been really active with anime (joined this site, quarantine), so can't really speak for any other year. Though the only new anime I been enjoying this year is basically Jutusu Kaisen. Heard praise for God of Highschool, Rent-a-girlfriend, Tower of God but they are pretty short anime.

Not sure why u would consider 2020 as your worst year, based on your anime scores u have given multiple 9, 8 and 7 this year. Only 3 anime score below 7

mine would be 2005 or 2007 (reason may also be because of the less no of anime watched from those years)

Yep! Jujutsu Kaisen is my favourite anime this year. God of Highschool isn't the best I don't know if its me but it feels too Hisoka vs Gon or something

Each year that we're currently in, so 2020 for now. 2019 was awful when I was seeing seasonals but 2020 has definitely been worse. I went from having a solid enough top 10 anime in 2017 and 2018 to having 5/10s and general disappointments other than Major 2nd season 2 in my top 10 area. Not optimistic for 2021 but hope that's better to break the cycle.

How are people saying 2020 when HF3 premiered this year? That solely carries this year.
