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.

Like always there was a lot of shows to watch in spring. 24 shows aired and out of that I watched 21. (Well 20 see below) Sometimes the amount scares me that I'm able to keep up with. Thankfully there were a handful of treasures in spring that I was highly looking forward to. There were 6 season "2" shows airing and I watched half of those. Here we go with Spring's Aired Anime.
Only Ikkitousen, Major and Jewelpet weren't watched due to all being related to series I haven't even touched yet. I actually can't wait to get my hands on Ikkitousen. I know it's a boob filled, poorly adapted, Romance of the Three Kingdoms knock off but the fan inside me tells me I must watch it at some point. Now that all has aired I think I'll tackle it for next year. Major I'm still afraid of since it's about baseball... Which is funny cause the S2 of Ookiku Furikabutte aired as well which I enjoyed a great deal.
I've always enjoyed spring because there's always plenty of shows to sink my teeth into. Amazingly all are finished airing but 2. SD Gundam Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors and Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri. Long titles are long but worth sitting down and watching if you A: Like the idea of Gundam chibis being ROTK characters or B: Like magical girls who sing. I obviously am in love with SD Gundam way more than Lilpri but both are pretty awesome watches.
Best Show of spring for me was House of Five Leaves. I looked forward to a new episode every week. I drooled over the OP and the art just about made me cum in my pants. It was a lovely slow show about an adorable shy samurai with his bandit buddies. SO GOOD. I gotta re-watch and review it to gush more because it deserves more love.
Worst Show of spring for me aside from Kiss x Sis because I dropped that show like a smelly cat shit down the toilet... Anyway the worst show was Angel Beats. I tried REALLY hard to like it but KEY... I fucking hate you KEY. They can't do anything right. I vowed not to watch anymore of their crap releases ever again but I made an exception for this one because it wasn't made from a VN. It was new but still failed prey to the usual crap KEY puts out. >.<
Here's my big list of Best to Worst shows of spring 2010:
- House of Five Leaves 10/10
- SD Gundam Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors (still airing) 10/10
- Arakawa Under the Bridge 9/10
- Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin 9/10
- Senkou no Night Raid 8/10
- Tatami Galaxy 8/10
- Giant Killing 7/10
- Ookiku Furikabutte 7/10
- Koihime Musou 7/10
- Working 7/10
- Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan 6/10
- Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri (still airing) 5/10
- Kaichou wa Maid-sama 5/10
- Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou 4/10
- K-On 4/10
- Heroman 4/10
- B Gata H Kei 3/10
- Mayoi Neko Overrun 3/10
- Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru 3/10
- Angel Beats 2/10
- Kiss x Sis (DROPPED) 1/10
Surprise enjoyment: Giant Killing is about soccer... I'm not a sports person let along a soccer one but this one grabbed me. It wasn't the sport it's self but more so the characters striving for their dreams. It was great fun reading both Shinmaru and Emperor J posts on this wonderful show.
Surprise fail: Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru... I hate "yaoi" series that are like this. All the drama with none of the meat to back it up. I'll stick with those weird yaoi ova's that come out every now and then. At least I get to see sex there.
Honorable mentions: Rainbow started off very rough and tough. The imagery alone was enough to make you wanna cry. It was a really dark anime about boys sent to prison and how insane it was in there for them. It got more uplifting by the end of the series but still kicked you in the balls every chance it got. Heroman... Just exactly what was that? Senkou no Night Raid everyone dismissed after the first episode. But honestly I thought it was great!
From the anime Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru, Takashiro Giou is the head of the Giou clan and claims to be Yuki's older half-brother. He ends up hiding something very important from the rest of the Zweilt Guardians and Yuki as well.
Why I like him: His voice. So yummy. <3 Koyasu Takehito. I do feel that his character was the most fleshed out of the series. Also the most interesting where everyone else was super boring.
Why I hate him: Meh, there wasn't much to hate about him. He was just kinda there. Maybe his arrogance, but that was kinda what was awesome about him too.
Overall: I really hate these kind of "yaoi" series that just play up the bishies and don't really do anything...
I've been a little slow at getting around to these ones for the season but here they are. If you wish to check out more impressions of spring anime you can go here. I'll be making 2 more posts of impressions so you can look forward to those. Each anime is reviewed on the first 2 episodes of the series.
Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru AKA Betrayal Knows My Name
Yuki has some sort of supernatural power that he can see people's pasts and emotions. He dreams of a past that he was part of quite often and wonders just why he was put in this world because he was abandoned as a child then randomly a man appears claiming to be his brother. Oh the bishie yaoi story is full of fantasy and mystery ain't it. More like teen angst trying to figure out his place in the world. I'll look forward to what will become of little Yuki but I wish it wasn't so slow. It felt like each episode was an hour long and it seems to be trying very hard to be interesting but falls flat right now.
The graphics are very pretty and make the show more interesting than it really is. The OP is well... Emo to me and the ED is just ok.
Mayoi Neko Overrun
The male lead I already want to kill. Did he really have to introduce every character in the show one by one like that in the first episode? Ahh his voice pisses me off too. While I do enjoy the cat aspect of this show and the food, (Both being things I totally love) I can't get over everything else that is so bad. Everything has been done before in this show and well some new stuff do it better some do it worse. This one is definitely doing things worse and reminds me just why I hate harem's so much. Everything is just so generic.
I wish the show focused more on the Stray Cats pastry shop than it does because to me that is the unique part and the most interesting. Harem anime will always be character driven though so we won't see much development in the other aspects of the show. Anyway I don't really have much else to say. Animation is average, OP and ED are forgettable like most from harem anime are. Cat girls are fun.
Sarai-ya Goyou AKA House of Five Leaves
Right away the show dives into the OP and I really enjoyed that. The music mixed with the lovely unique design was very beautiful. We follow Akitsu Masanosuke, a skilled and loyal swordsman but he has just one problem. He's very timid and this gets him fired from many of his protecting jobs. After all you gotta look and be scary in order to protect people right? Lucky him the leader of a bandit group called The Five Leaves hires him to be his bodyguard. But what the leader is of course trying to do is get Akitsu to join The Five Leaves group too. The only problem is that Akitsu isn't quite alright with the groups way of making money. Kidnapping isn't all that noble after all. There's adventure to it and that draws Akitsu to this group I think.
I find this show very refreshing. It's a real down to earth samurai show with mystery and great characters. Even the nobody's in the show seem to have a purpose. I look forward to seeing this story fold out. This is one of the best shows of spring anime for me.
I'm not the only one posting spring line up thoughts late so that makes me happy. With the help of awesome charts from Chartfag and from an Anime Countdown site to help me schedule my anime, I've looked around a lot to see who has been saying what and what I'm interested in seeing myself. Unlike last season this one has a lot more to choose from so the chances of finding a lot of awesome always go up along with finding the terrible. Chu-Bra holds my title for worst show of the year so far, although Kiss X Sis could upset Chu-Bra from this title. Scamp has created a very nice preview as well which was very fun to read and gives a lot of extra little background information to each anime.
* means I'm looking forward to it. Onward!
Angel Beats Everyone is looking forward to this one... I'm skeptical. I have a strong feeling I'm not going to like this because it's made by the same people that made Kanon and Clannad... But this one does have a different formula than their usual dish. Action. Don't screw it up for me studio Key.
* Arakawa Under the Bridge I think this would be the one I'm looking forward to the most aside from the several ROTK anime. Girl meets boy, they have to live under a bridge because that's where she lives. lol ok.
* Battle Brave Warriors (SD Gundam Sangokuden (ROTK) It's going to be fun seeing ROTK characters played out in mecha form 😀
* Betrayal (Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitte Iru) Angsty bishies with yaoi tones. Could be good, probably will be average or even below average.
B-Type H-Group Looks like a trashy smut manga. Could be entertaining in a groan kind of way as most smut is.
Giant Killing Football (soccer) anime. I'll give it a whirl. Never watched an anime based on this sport before oddly enough.
Hakuouki: Shinsengumi Kitan Anime based off a game hardly ever do it for me. But since I haven't played the game it could be ok as I have no expectations for it that way.
Heroman I think it's going to flop... I'll be very VERY surprised if I like it.
* Hetalia 3 already started and I'm already very much a fan.
Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou More magical academy anime but this has lots and lots of fanservice. Gonna be another boring harem trying to be unique.
Kaichou wa Maid-sama Ladies vs Butlers without the fanservice. (At least not to that extent) Definitely looks like it's more aimed at girls than boys this time around. Gives off an Ouran feel to it for me.
Kiss X Sis Incest is fun but not when it's done like this. The ova was... Special...
K-On! Season 2 I watched S1 with a friend and that same friend wishes me to watch it with him again. I'll do it for him as I really have no interest in watching a S2 of girls playing instruments in school. Image above done by ~shaoron.
Mayoi Neko Overun Nyaa! Loli cat in a box. Oh boy. I love cats and all but I don't think this anime is going to get very far enjoyment wise unless something super interesting happens plot wise.
* Rainbow - Nisha Rokubo no Shichinin Dark and gloomy. It's about some boys that go through hard times but they always look towards a better place.
***** Romance Of The Three Kingdoms After almost a year of waiting the time has finally come for this remake to be aired in Japan. I loved the first one when I watched it last summer (Made it my 1000th anime watched) and thought to myself, wouldn't it be great if they remade this with today's graphics. Little more than a month later this showed up on my radar and my wish had been granted. Now I can only hope that someone will pick it up to be subbed as other really awesome ROTK anime seem to not have quite the following (Souten Kouro).
* Sarai ya Goyou (House of Five Leaves) Edo-era Japan with the shoguns. I'm there.
* Senko no Night Raid Fighting secret wars in China, I'm game. Looks like a lot of fun with pretty animation.
* Shin Koihime Musou Otome Tairan Huzza more of my black haired beauty and her interesting friends are back for more crazy action and odd ecchi moments.
* Working! Read my PreRelease thoughts here. Basically I like it.
Yojo-han Shinwa Taikei Looks quirky so we're in for some weird animation. Plot seems to be interesting enough as well following a person reminiscing about their past.
Yutori-chan 1-4 already aired. She works for a telemarketing company. Random stories and fun occur including some close encounters with the boss, cellphones, and illness! Could be cute. I like that it's short episodes.
That's it for everything that I will be watching/airing. Oddly there are a lot of things I'm interested in and of course a lot that I have no interest in either. There are always lots of OVA's and some movies that come out but I won't really bother talking about those. GINTAMA movie!!! Also everyone seems to be really hyped about the ova Black Rock Shooter. I personally don't care either way about it but I will watch to see exactly what all the hype is about. Here are some second seasons or beyond that I probably will not get around to. But I can hope. 😛
Jewelpet 2nd and Marie and Gali 2 No one will probably pick these up because both their S1's were dropped.
Ookiku 2 and Major 6 Both are about baseball... ewww. But I did just get Ookiku S1 so since it's only 25 episodes and ONE season to worry about, I'll be watching it next week most likely. I hope it's good and not boring like almost all other baseball anime I have watched.
Ikkitousen If I get around to watching all the other seasons I'll pick it up. Highly unlikely. I do want to start this series someday though. I'm a sucker for Romance of the Three Kingdoms knockoffs as you all already know.
Ring ni Kakero 1 Highly will try to watch the older one(s) first. But since I haven't even done that with Cobra it's unlikely that it'll happen. Although it is 24 episodes between the 2 of them so it's likely to be watched next week along with Ookiku.
Iron Man Originally was on the line up but sadly will be delayed till Fall 🙁 The live action movie Iron Man 2 will have to make do till then. Can't wait!
Bakugan... We'll see as I just finished S1 and half way through S2... Don't ask why...
Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri Uhhhg what a title. I honestly don't even know what this is about. Something to do with card games and magical girls. No thanks. Looks like Pretty Cure mixed with Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch... >.<
