Shinsekai Yori. I had very high expectation for this anime considering it's rating on MAL but it ended up being a rather mediocre story (it could have been developed in amuch better and mature way imo) with bland and boring characters for whom I couldn't care less. Also, the homosexuality between the characters felt totally out of place, without adding a single thing to the story... bad yaoi fanservice ftw.


^ this is why GOOD anime goes to waste :)

*puts flame armour on*
I did enjoy it mind, but I went in with high expectations, and I was left feeling pretty disappointed. I just don't see it as being the masterpiece that a lot of people claim it to be, just a good anime that was fun to watch, but nothing remarkable.

You have a decent head on your shoulders sir....

Yes it was over-hyped....it ruined my experience too as I wanted something out of this world. The homosexuality actually was part of the storyline.

If I had had to choose from something recent I'd say Tokyo ESP.
I would say mahou sensou but part of me wasn't really expecting much from that to begin with.

Yoru no Yatterman. First few episodes were great and it seemed kinda serious but then it turned into some sort of random anime about whatever happens in that episode with the usual jokes from comedy anime that aren't even funny. It also has mechas coming out of nowhere, saving everyone and ruining pretty much everything.
It's still an alright anime, I guess, but it could've been so much more.

Mikaku City Actors, because I liked what I had read of the manga "Kagerou Days" but the anime didn't keep my attention for more than two episodes ...
Also, Tokyo Ghoul, the first few episodes were really cool but it went down hill fast for me.

Tokyo Ghoul √A. It's even worse than the 1st season, lame and terrible adaptation (good job as always Pierrot), crap fight scenes, the animators didn't even tried to put any effort in those shit and half-assed animations. It's a shame, because the manga is really good and now they rushed through all the story and made an anime with nonexistent character development with forced interactions between them, especially for Kaneki.

Don't watch this, read the manga instead. Or watch Parasyte, it's not that good but it's a better version of TG.

Ill never understand why people say clannad is overrated, yea sure the ending sucks and is a total cop out but if you look at the series as a whole and just enjoy the "family" aspect of it you would see why so many people like it. This is the first and only anime i have ever recommended to my real life family and friends who aren't anime lovers.

Negisa's parents were amazing.

I can't really call Aldnoah.Zero a "disappointment" because it failed just as spectacularly as the first season. I keep watching it mostly to pause the show and look at how Inaho and Slaine's eyebrows are drawn above their hair, how awful the outfits look, and laughing at the placid expressionless characters devoid of realism with exposition dump after exposition dump following poorly choreographed retrograde rendered CG battles.

There was a lot of anime that people said were good that just outright sucked though that I (tried) to watch recently:

Brigadoon (Is this humor supposed to be making me laugh? Is the "close friendship that's almost lesbians" supposed to pull my heartstrings and make me have a loli fetish? Am I supposed to care because she's an orphan?)

Akatsuki no Yona, for this season. How could it start off with a decent amount of running momentum and fall into this trap of being a garbage reverse-harem with a pretentious kawaii helpless princess that magically turns serious with a hair reference and gleaming eyes? I don't care about these character recruitment arcs: there's zero sense of tension, possibly because the intro shows the implication that nobody in the main cast is going to be hurt and the Dragons will all end up with her... AND they show her leading the dragons to attack a caravan EARLY ON as a foreshadowing like the show will somehow magically get better after you put up with this bullshit. UGH!

Lucky☆Star: The pacing is all over the place. The characters are fucking teleporting across time and space from one scene to the next. There's no pacing, and the humor mostly sucks unless it's an anime/japanese culture reference.

Pandora Hearts: Alice in Wonderland done wrong. You'd think from the first couple of episodes that it'd have some sort of twisted, dark element like the game "Ib" as a social commentary of the media consuming the masses or just a dark horror twist, but nope; it's just another god-damn shounen with monsters with name dropping Alice in Wonderland.

Scryed: Post apocalyptic world. Magic robot mutant powers. Evil organization trying to capture mutants, treated as third class citizens. The organization's name is HOLY, to have that edgy "we're attacking religion while being ironic" stance. If you like mindless power-up scenes while yelling with two men "fighting for honor" kind of stuff, then this is your anime.

I'd like to honorably mention:

Log Horizon 2nd Season. It raised my hopes because episode 14 was actually good compared to every other episode. It's still passable, but 14 made it look like it was trying to transcend just being a slice of life with some gradual plot progression.
How do people get to 2000 hours when I'm already this bored?

I love tokyo ghoul and still think its a great anime through and through but the ending to root a was certainly disappointing. It seems like the budget was so low on most episodes because of how much time they wasted. Not to mention the main character barely even talked :/

Blood-C. After coming down off of marathoning Blood+ I was looking so forward to a new series, and then I got THAT. gross. I'm not one to outright turn down an anime, I'll usually give most anime a good 3 episodes to catch my attention, but I dropped Blood-C after two episodes. I couldn't do it.

Its genuinely funny how when it started airing almost everyone was going crazy over it,but if you by any chance read the manga you knew already that it was nowhere near that level people were making it out to be.
Just goes to show that no matter the studio if the original source material isn't anything noteworthy then chances are very high that the end result will also be the same.

Maybe I should rephrase it

If an anime gets a low rating, trust the public
If an anime gets a high rating, trust yourself

Evangelion. Was hoping for greatness given the hype. I got 26 episodes of shinji crying, repeating scenes, 2 minutes of the same fucking still images, and a "mind fuck" that was more annoying than anything. I really tried to like it =\. I don't hate it, i was just let down.

Hoping that I enjoy redo more.

Sword Art Online. I didn't expect it to been as good as Log Horizon, but the anime is more boring than I expected. Didn't hate it, but very dissapointed; I didn't even know if I should continue watching the show.

My friend's been recommending it to me ever since it came out, but I'd been putting it off until recently when I finally gave it a try. Everything about it sounded like something I should enjoy, but... I didn't. Dropped after 3 boring episodes, lol.

Patlabor on TV.... It's really quite well received critically by some fans but I don't really see even after 6 episodes to explain that. I only see a pointless show about the everyday life of police on robots.

Akatsuki no Yona - great visuals, yes. Characters are okay, I guess. But we got 24 episodes and nothing to make the plot go further happens. In the end, after all the journey, the princess didn't even have a resolve. Overrated. Next season might "fix" it, though (if we get one).
