Slimes are great. What I love most about this series is the slime research. The realisation that the alcohol slime keeps demanding more expensive liquour, the medicine slime steals the mushrooms the protagonist is farming, the metal slimes dangeorusly roll around, the army of 3000 slimes makes the protagonist OP at toilet cleaning, and an army of 5000 slimes trained in martial arts doing battle against a horde of goblins.

Through millennia of evolution, the sound of a crying child has been genetically engineered to be the most insufferable noise imaginable.

Of course, in Candy Candy it's not nearly as grating but it tries to be and the characters are crying all the time. It's more realistic that way, but it's not in service of any goal. The anime is from the 1970's and hence so are the concerns it addresses (whatever those are). Insufferable realism is meaningless here.

Oh, and it looks and sounds awful, especially the sound of crying children.

It has it's moments and Donald Trump does make an appearance, but it's largely utterly insufferable.
