The Apple Incident.

Not technically a series, I was expecting the same creator of Tsumiki no Ie to pull off another melancholy, thought-provoking story and all I got was 2mins of unsurpassed annoyance in Anime.

One Piece I guess. I can't remember any others right now.


Well, judging a series nearing 500 episodes based on a couple of (admittedly) so-so episodes is foolish to say the least.

Death Note
i tried it because it's popular and high rated. and dropped after 8 episodes. i think it's very overrated.

Devil May Cry - I thought CAPCOM characters and universe + Madhouse production team combination couldn't possibly go wrong. My mistake.
Ghost in the Shell, both movie and the TV series. Really hyped, still pretty bad.
Planzet - utter garbage. I don't know why someone decided to waste good CG on that nightmarish plot a two ears old can top in an hour with no problems.
Shingetsutan Tsukihime - action, horror, vampires my ass. The thing is just made of plot holes. I don't know why the score on MAL is that hight.
Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch - hyped as hell. Dropped on the first ep.
Dance in the Vampire Bund - vampires, werewolfs, action, politics, even Shaft production team on-board! How could that go wrong at all?! Still they've succeeded to ruin it. Silly lazy Shaft.

5 Centimeters per Second-It's a movie split in 3 episodes. I dropped about 15 minutes watching it. It has nice colors/animation movement but the character and perceived story was too melodramatic for me.

Strawberry Panic-Read some comments on youtube of it being very good. Simply didn't like it that much.

Clannad-Received a lot of praises from its fans, my expectations were too high for it.

Mushishi-The most boring anime I've seen.

The Wallflower. My one friend couldn't stop talking about how much she enjoyed it. I watched it and was like "bleh!".

This is why you completely lower your should not have any expectations before you get into anything.

This.

but then 5 or 6 episodes in I was loving it.

Then half way through it was awesome.

And then i puked rainbows during the final battle.
I wish I could puke rainbows... but I was falling manly tears.

WAT,
how can you say bakuman??
srslsy very good anime wdf
I would assume it's got something to do with this thing called "Subjective Taste". Apparently, it's some sort of mental disorder that people get from unprotected consumption of entertainment.


Bakuman manga has beautiful art and I still want to read it when I feel like it.
The anime had poor art. And it's slow as fuck...
Wait...
It's SLOWER than fuck.
I'm still interested in the manga making thing though. But screw the romance.

Last year was Nurahiyon no Mago. My imagination on the anime while reading the manga was better.

Now is Moshidora. This one failed on using Drucker's Management as the key of the story.

Other than the one I've already mentioned before, Freezing, I think it should be said that half of the fans went into Xros Wars with (very) high anticipation only to come out feeling meh. The problem was that we expected something quality to come along after the dull fest that's Frontier and Savers.

Blassreiter. I read the summary and thought: "Sci-fi zombie robots, decent art, and it's all set in germany? Sounds awesome!"
But it was a shitty contrived drama story about motorcycles filled to the brim with disgusting CG animation.

I hate it; I hate it; I hate it! Everything that centers around cars, or bikes, or any kind of motorvehicle is worthless!

Aishiteruze Baby.

The manga was damn good, my second favourite so i expected the anime to easily be one of my favourites seeing as i loved Lovely Complex and Bokura Ga Ita and i also liked the animes of them.

But nah something wasnt right, it just seemed so cheap.

My biggest disappointment was Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. I had heard so much about how amazing it was and when I finally decided to watch it I didn't really like it much at all. I struggled to even finish it.

Other disappointments include Clannad, Dance in the Vampire Bund, and Iron Man.

High School of the Dead - I didn't know there was going to be a lot of ecchi stuff on it xD, it is a good anime, but I was expecting a lot of actions and I love zombie stories, this dissapointed me because it's more focused on the girl's big breasts instead of surviving.


I know your pain :/ I was really hoping for some <NONSTOP CLIMAX ZOMBIE ACTION>

like many people here, I despise highschool of the dead :(

for this season, I think the firs few episodes of C kinda disappointing for me
I was expecting battle using wits and Intelligence, instead what I saw was "average teenager got sucked into some battles and wins by luck because he have hidden potential" thing :(
I hope the next episodes will improve that.

I dont get why ppl hate Naruto Shippuuden (ok, it was boring on the begining but action after Pervy Hermit died started to be awesome till now), Gintama (it's imba parody of other animes in good fashion when you dont expect deep like ocean story) or Clannad (real tearjerker ^^)

I was thinking to watch first Kanon after watching great refreshed sequel but it turned out it sux badly

Code Geass:Hangyaku no Lelouch; I watched death note first and really enjoyed it and tried code Geass because it seemed to have a similar style. In the end I felt like they were a little to similar and I frankly preferred the death note premise.

That was a while ago though, I might give it another shot sometime :)

Oretachi, i was like, there's no way the company that made shuffle can make something SO BAD. Guess i was proven wrong.

I also over hyped TTGL. It let me down so bad. the only thing i liked was the ending.

IS also was a letdown
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

Samurai gun had an amazing trailer but it was really meh. Also Evangelion, I heard so many good things about it and it was good but the ending was just stupid and ruined it .IMO its like they were told "Finish it in three episodes because were out of funding" or something to that effect.

I feel that 5cm per second might have its value a little inflated.

I know its resolution wasn't meant to tie together a story in a traditional sense, but in exchange I'd wish I could care about the cast more. It doesn't help that Shinkai made the odd choice to have its characters narrate everything instead of giving reasons for viewer sympathy.

A second look at this movie in the future will be in order though, because it unfortunately came right on the heels of something one scene short of a masterpiece; indeed, how does one follow up the veritable powerhouse that is Clannad: After Story?

Neon Genesis Evangelion: I actually liked the first half but after that it was HUGE disappointment in my opinion.
Haruhi Suzumiya: What's the big deal with this anyway? I mean i kept hearing, reading reviews how great it is etc, etc and when i watched it was like a bunch of ideas thrown together without any connection (I did though enjoy its which i think is far superior to the original).
Elfen Lied: Maybe i shouldn't add this because i watched about 5-6 minutes but i found it way too disturbing to continue watching but it had such a beautiful opening and i heard a lot about it.

Infinite Stratos from last season. "Harem and Mecha combined? It should be cool!"

But now... I'm hard pressed to continue on to episode 3...

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: I heard so much good stuff about this but it bored me to tears after a few episodes. Quite frankly I dont see what the fuss is about if I'm honest.
