Ao no exocist: so much potential, but wasted because of poor adaptation and stupid fillers

Oreimo 2 and Oreimo 2 special: too much bullshit, season 1 was so much better

Penguindrum was like a bad trip ...never knew what or why anything was happening
Air ... what can i say after the puppet thingy i was wondering if i should kill myself or never watch this anime , and I am alive now , how could one stand such sad drama queens and weird scenarios I mean if my little girl brought home some old dude trust me it would be a movie called The slaughter of the weird guy hahha ...that anime was just not right , all the sadness and insufferable silences and irrational decisions , maybe Im just jaded but even my girl wanted to stop .

No anime has ever disappointed me. It's all about watching anime with a clear mindset. Makes any anime good at first : )

A lot of people are gonna hate me for saying this, but the most disappointing anime I ever saw was Chuunibyo. NO, not because it's KyoAni and NO, not just because it's moe! I just simply hated the insensitively comedic portrayal of kids dabbling in fantasy lives and the people's reactions to them (or general lack thereof).

Don't worry, at least I am not gonna hate you for that xD because I kinda felt the same about Chunibyou as well. :/ kinda liked it though i thought I'll like it more. Didn't work.

For me SAO was a disappointment, all I heard was great things from it and it just seemed average when i watched it, the romance was meh, and not enough action/fight scenes.

Guilty Crown and Sword Art had very good potential from the start. They died because of poor writing. The only good thing both shows had were their respective OST's

Elfen Lied.

I read the manga first, which is my favorite manga.

my reasoning:

"Canaan. You're a victim whose past was taken away by war. And she's a defeated person who lost her past in a power struggle. Soldiers who are born within destruction take hatred as their weapon. Even though you and her became soldiers for the same reason, you both live differently. Listen Canaan, you cannot counter hatred with hatred... ever." -Siam, Canaan

You're gonna get flamed man... You're gonna get flamed hard... Run while you still can...
It's natural for a person to deny he's a failure as a human being. That's why he searches for somebody who is more miserable than himself. That's why so much animosity exists on the internet. Those who aren't able to find a more miserable person, turn to the internet and call other people losers, even though they've never met. Just to make themselves feel superior. isn't that pathetic? There's a sense of security that comes from speaking badly of someone else. But that isn't true salvation. — Tatsuhiro Satou

That's because the sequel is usually rated higher.

Logic: If you don't like the first season, it is more likely that you will drop the series. You are then left with people who either liked it, or thought that it was ok, therefore boosting the rating. I suppose there might be some people who watch R2 despite hating R1, but I can't really follow the reasoning behind that.


I can't believe I didn't think if that. *feels dumb*

Right now it's Shingeki no Kyojin. I thought it was promising at first, but now I don't think I'll be able to finish it.

Hmm... it's gotta be Tamako Market.
I wanted to check this out after hearing it was from the K-ON! team, but when I did, the anime was boring from top to bottom. There was barely any character development, and some of the moments are forgettable.
There were some redeeming qualities like the art and some of the characters like Tamako.
Love can make a Yuri couple moe.

That. and the fact that there wasn't much gore anyway.


I kind of want to know why you started watching it. All the recommendations I've seen clearly state that it's gory.

I wouldnt count on recommendations .
Indeed , it gives you the feeling that is gory but calling it gory is wrong .
The only episodes that can give those with a weak heart a gory sensations are the ones with Ninth at the school , episode 2 if I recall right , the all defending Sixth where Yuno was butchering the fake corpses that was episode 6 and 7 I think and episode 20 or 21 , where the world is on the brink of extinction and Yuno sets up Akise and his friends .
But I dont find Mirai Nikki gory at all.....it just Yuno sometimes it gives you the creeps .

I had many disappointments, but Sword Art Online takes the cake. I remember watching the trailers every day for months till its release. By the time it reached episode 20, I didn't even bother to rewind when I take toilet breaks or answer the phone.

Probably Durarara!!, not had so much variety of characters besides having an environment very seen. It was not very interesting after half and 24 chapters I felt it long.

You want something gory? Watch Genocyber.
Don't bother if you don't know how special effects were done without computers.

Strawberry Panic. I like yuri but that was...really weird. The characters were boring too so I just dropped it.

My words the same.
Im an Yuri fanboy and I dropped it after ~3 episodes

But the anime that most disappointed me was Bakemonogatari, didn't even bother to add it to my list.

I'll be completely unoriginal and say Sword Art Online, it had so much promise but all of it went to waste.
It wasn't that bad though, just a waste of potential.

Natsuyuki Rendezvous is probably the biggest disappointment for me.

josei = check
nice visuals = check
wonderful sound = check
intriguing synopsis = check
adult romance instead of high school romance = check

See that? We have a nice list of all things I like.
Except that this show decides to crap on itself and gets stuck in an awful melodramatic rut for like 6 straight episodes.
It was like watching the same thing every week with no advancement and then it all went to hell when
*spoiler*


Brilliant premise, bad execution.
Maybe not so much from Brains Base but the mangaka instead for writing these characters.

Sword Art Online. The first half was enjoyable, and if it had ended there I would've been happy.

The 2nd half doesn't even deserve a 1.

Just finished the S2, I fast-forwarded the episodes because the last episodes was about creating a movie with the club and after the movie was done they showed the recorded movie in a whole episode and again after that unnecessary episodes...

Neon Genesis...I have tried to watch this anime 3 or 4 times over and I can never finish it. I am going to give it another go eventually. Philosophy and Mech has me written all over it, but everytime I watch this anime it feels like every episode takes more like 3 hours not 20 minutes.
