To Heart is barfy.
Boys are meh. Girls are passable but pretty meh too. I like the skirt and that's about it. The double white trim along the bottom is really cute especially since one of the stripes are bigger than the other. I like that the bow tie has one stripe to match it as well.
Overall: I'll pass.
So since I did a favourite anime of all time list I decided to do a list of anime that just didn't do it for me. Like the favourites, making this list has some requirements. It had to have pissed me off a lot and be bad according to my tastes. I generally let a lot of bad things slide by without much thought so these anime ended up leaving a nasty enough impression on me that just made me not able to forget. I have absolutely NO desire to re-watch any of these shows and I generally can't stand the attention they get from most anime fans. Some are failed potential that betrayed my feelings so much that I just can't let it go and some are sequels that completely let me down.
If one of your favourite anime happens to be on this list do not bother leaving flame comments. It will be deleted. Take note that everyone in this world is completely different and so their tastes are different as well. Some people are more compatible than others. If one anime happens to be a masterpiece for someone could be another's poison. These happen to be my poisons! Like my Favourites List I'll update this one when something decides to be a terrible anime that just has to make the list.

Marching onward to Season 3 of this painful series I got surprised as I did not read anything about it. All new characters with the same story but "different" Ok so maybe they can make this franchise better right? Wrong... They definitely made it worse. Like a terrible slime covered slope I dove down into this one expecting the worst and that is exactly what I received.
This series take on following the new lame adventures of Takaaki Kono and his number one girl that chases him around the school yard Konomi Yuzuhara. Who is a timid weird girl who just tries too hard to be interesting. It's a snore fest already...
Tamaki Kosaka saves what little is good about this show. She is a childhood friend of both Takaaki and Konomi. She has a crazy and wondrous personality that just makes things seem better when she is around. Although not by much as To Heart 2 gets an amazing 1/10 from me and that 1 point comes from Tamaki.
The rest of the show was painful to watch and took lots of stuff from other anime and did it very badly. Weather it was the girl who "is" an alien named Lucy, followed by Karin Sasamori who always wanted to find out more about aliens, or the typical good twin bad twin type Sango and Ruri.
Not to forget the perverted friend of Takaaki, Yuji Kosaka who is the little brother of Tamaki and always gets a good beating from her for being obsessed with video taping or taking pictures of girls... Even though nothing perverted you ever see. No pantsu shots, no nothing.
Oh and the robot ladies were back in this one as well. Didn't take as much as a ridiculous roll as in To Heart though which was nice. All other characters were pointless and annoying to me. Especially this library chick Manaka Komaki. She was SUPER annoying. Timid and shy but eventually does things her way but still gets bullied throughout the show anyway as is her roll as the class president against her will.
Unless there is something I'm totally missing from the Visual Novels I don't understand the appeal of this show. It's boring, flat, and has virtually nothing new about it. To the school romance genre... Then again I was never one to fawn over such craptacular stories. I'll leave that for the lonely otaku that got picked on in school to drool all over this series...
Continuing on with this terrible franchise I come to the sequel of To Heart with dread and the over powering feeling of sorrow. How can they make it worse I thought to myself Season 1 was bad enough. But of course THEY can ALWAYS make things worse... I always have to remind myself that. ~Remember My Memories~ made To Heart seem like a walk in the park.
Sometime has passed and the kids are slightly older. Not much I assume but older none the less. Hiroyuki Fujita's beloved Multi was taken away from school for having technical issues but she suddenly returns to a new semester but completely forgetting any of her past relationships with the students. *tear* so sad.... LOL not really. Hiroyuki and the rest of the gang hang around with Multi in hopes of helping her remember something about her past. I assume cleaning... Hiroyuki even goes as far as to meeting with Multi's creator and tries to help out on the technical side of things.
All Multi ever and I mean EVER does is clean. I'm aware that she is a robot and maybe somewhere in this series it was explained why that is all she does. Besides the simple explanation of she's a school helping robot of course! Cause that goes without saying right? But honestly why bother making it LOOK like a human where it is CLEARLY going to confuse high school boys?
Anyway that is pretty much what ~Remember My Memories~ is ALL about. They focus a little more on Akari trying to get Hiroyuki to like her even more but it generally ends like this (pictures below) all through out the episodes. But who knows maybe something amazing will happen in the last episode?
They toss in some of that love triangle stuff that they had in the first series at the end of this one. But it doesn't really get interesting at all for being a love triangle... more like love fail because Akari is painful to see on screen whenever she is around. Let alone the awkward conversation she and Multi had about this little love problem. Kinda weird that she's jealous over a robot to begin with....
The rest of the gang was around but they were more like statues. Very few episodes revolved around anyone that wasn't Multi, Akari, or our oh so loved lame school boy hero.... Hiroyuki. Maybe next season gang!
~Remember My Memories~ gets a whopping 2/10.... Can't wait to watch To Heart 2.... 🙁
As my ever going quest to finish off a certain someones "lists" from Anime-Planet it has once again brought me to dreaded anime that I know are going to be terrible. Yes I went into starting To Heart thinking it was going to be bad and boring. I hate it when I'm right. Simply knowing an anime comes from a Visual Novel I am always very weary of it's quality. Especially of the Eroge type.
To Heart follows the oh so boring school adventures of Hiroyuki Fujita. His dry and lame personality make fans of this type of anime (school romance) cringe. Why can't he ever be happy with the situation he is in?? MILLIONS of other men would love to be in his shoes but he simply just doesn't care and wanders around in this anime world oblivious to everything. Oh I can't forget to mention his token best oblivious friend Masashi Sato is along for the ride as well. A pointless character to I can only assume is there to try and make Hiroyuki look good.
Right here these typical cliche characters are driving me insane. If it's not the eye rolling I do from seeing Hiroyuki oh the screen it's the cringing I do when Masashi is around as well. Painful as it might be I continue onward to meet the oh so many girls of this anime. I'll never understand why there are so many more girls in these kind of anime than boys. I'm pretty sure Hiroyuki Fujita & Masashi Sato are the only real male classmates in the school. There is one other science older male that shows up later on but aside from him the male presents in this show is lacking. I think it would be interesting to have a school full of few females and see all the weird quirks of the males for once. Cause almost ALL of the girls in To Heart are really weird in their own "special" way.
Now for the meaningless girls. Akari Kamigishi is the one that has the awesome life goal of wanting to sit beside Hiroyuki in class and sadly gets her wish so she must now make a new life goal. This of course is to always be with Hiroyuki and all that lovely romance crap. Painful to watch her go through school with one little goal such as this. Shiho Nagaoka is her best friend that is always fighting with the boys. She is your typical tomboy and will eventually start to have feelings that she just isn't sure what to do with for "someone" uhh ohhh love triangle. But don't worry it'll all work out in the end. It always does right?
Now like with every other school romance there are lots, lots more characters running around or well just being in the way. I didn't care for any of the other ones and frankly they aren't really worth mentioning. There's your quiet one, your rich one, the animal lover, sisters, and so on. Although I should mention Multi because somewhere along the lines the anime did take a sudden RANDOM turn to her for the simple need, that I assume the creators had, for an android. Yup that's right she's a robot that looks, acts, and talks like a human...... WTF?
Now I wish I could say well yeah they made a short little story and that's it that's all. To Heart has 2 more seasons along with 3 different ova's.... Help 😐 It was hard enough getting through this one to have to dread sitting through more. To Heart: Remember My Memories will be next. Oh and this show gets a 3/10.....
