Although I didn't complete it I regret the 19 eps I spent on Shakugan no Shana hoping it would get better.

Man, what the hell was I thinking going into this? Yet, I finished it, and I regret wasting my time on it.

Also, Zero no Tsukaima/The Familiar of Zero: The flow was good in the second season until the last few minutes of the last episode of the second season. Then it got worse and worse and didn't get any better, all the way to the very end.

I regret not only watching but completing series like tokyo mew mew and mermaid melody. WTF was I thinking?? I'll blame it on the fact that I was new to anime at the and therefore watched everything I found on youtube...

Slam dunk, maybe? Huge waste of time, though I dont think regret is quite the right word. /Shrug.

None everyone I complete in another peg in my massive list I'm building also I like to dominate anime trivias at anime conventions you always get free DVDs that way. Even if something is bad well I at least like to know why it is.

I will Say Burst Angel. It's far from the worst show I've seen, it's just that I feel tricked.

Me and a friend rented the series from Hastings, all seven DVD's, since it was only 1$ rentals for them at the time. (No Idea if Hastings is still doing that.)

We watched DVD 1, and it was fairly bad, but seemed like it had potential.
We Watched DVD 2, it was worse, but felt like they were going somehwere good.
We watched DVD 3-6, and it was half way through volume six we realized something. It wasn't getting better. This was all watched in Two sittings mind you.

But hell, one DVD left. So we watched it. And oh dear god was that ending terrible.

I usually don't regret completing an anime series, I feel like after I am done with it then I can move on and even if it was bad, it's just another entry in my list.

That said I really regret watching all of Endless Eight, what was I thinking, what was KyoAni thinking...I never felt more trolled in my life.

I haven't watched any animes I disliked so I can't say I've wasted my time on any of them, however I always have this feeling of regret upon completing one, knowing it's all over =( Even more so for Deadman Wonderland, because I knew there wouldn't be a next season.. which really, I still can not comprehend =|

As of right now, Fate/Stay Night. I might not regret it much longer, because it gave me a good foundation to understanding Fate/Zero's premise.

I started the anime with high hopes(always a bad idea)
Then it started getting worse after each episode.
I found myself just watching it to see some ending that will make sitting trough this shit worth it. But instead it was one of the worst endings ever with asspull after asspull.
By the time it was over if found myself asking why the fuck did I just wasted 7 hours of my life. Only anime that I ever finished and still regret it.


This and only this.

I don't like the UBW movie. In fact I think it's complete shit and a disgrace to a fantastic route. I mean, as average as it was, the TV series at least tried to tell a story.

While I did prefer UBW over the original series, I would expect that normally this would not be the case [/nod]

Don't want to sound like a jerk but... what do you expect? UBW route is even bigger than Fate, and they compressed it on a movie. In fact, I believed that the main flaw of the OVA is because they actually WERE trying.

I don't think nobody can deny the main reason to watch the OVA is to see the fights animated + Shirou's getting a little more badass.

Most recently, Sword Art Online. It was one of the few times I wrapped up a series and all I could think about was the 12 hours of my life I spent watching it that I will never get back. Even Shana III didn't make me feel like that.

I don't really regret it, I've watched some bad shows. But then I would have had the doubt in the back of my mind that they could have gotten better.

No, if they really were trying they wouldn't have decided to go with the terrible idea to make a long ass route into a 90 something minute movie. It had "disaster" written all over it.

Again, at least fate got a full length series and had most of the important scenes...even though they weren't particularly well adapted.

I dunno, in fate that dragon scene was pretty awesome for sure!

No doubt that was an improvement. Cough.

A movie called Hetalia: Paint it White. The series was great, the movie sucked. No series really to speak of.

I'd have to say K. The "plot", characters and art (that everyone seems to praise -- I thought it was oddly discolored) just didn't hook onto me, and I found myself doing other things throughout nearly every episode.

The only thing that I disliked about "K" is that it had retarded yaoi undertones with the MC and the sword guy. Also

Admittedly, I also haven't played the visual novel, so my opinion of the film may vary. :)

I must say even though Guilty Crown sucked ass, it was entertaining to see it failing more and more each week and the plot turning into one hell of a teainwreck.

But for the thread, School Days.

I have never reached this far. If I have to wait 3 seasons for an insufferable character to actually become likable I might as well not even bother. Based on season 1 and beginning of season 2 I would have so much hate built up for Louise that I wouldn't be able to see the redeeming qualities

Thank you for convincing me to never watch that show.

Was that supposed to be funny or something? Honestly, what purpose could that scene have possibly served, if it weren't to make us dislike her?

She is, to the best of my knowledge, the worst of the lot. I normally love those characters, but in her case it is just sickening normally. Sometimes she is not to bad, but for the vast majority of the time she is unbearable. The main character is not to bad though, in the end...

A lot of people find the "tsundere" tendancies annoying but I personally don't. Not only that, I can see where a lot of it comes from in her case. I mean inferiority complexes can be a really rough thing to deal with, especially when everyone around you exasperates it by belittling you all day er' day.

In the light novels they show a lot more as well, like for example there's a scene where


So I guess I can just empathize with her character and see why she's kind of a jerk to everyone. Also, she's so adorable ;-;
