Hi, I'm one of the host in a podcast about anime and videogames and I made a deal with one of my co-hosts that if I watched a really bad anime, he would have to watch yaoi.

I've asked our fans to give me options but I thought it would be nice to also ask the comunity of crunchyroll for some imput.

Oh, also, it doesn't have to be strictly of this past seasons, but the more recent, the better.

Dragon Crisis – It just got incredibly annoying at the end with the stereotypical angsty teenagers and a stupid ending.

La storia della Arcana Famiglia – I honestly thought I would like this when I first read up on it; unfortunately when I actually watched it, it just got from bad to worse. It seems a load of people don’t like this anime lol.

Queen's Blade Rebellion - I liked Queen's Blade, but somehow the sequel just didn't quite make it.

Total Eclipse - Just SUCKED. Yes another anime with beautiful animation and horrible characters and story. Do yourself a favor and do not watch.

Saint Seiya Omega - I'll NEVER understand why they decided to make a spin off of Saint Seiya...But apparently they did and it's pretty bad.

But the worst anime I've watched this year (that ISN'T from this year but which I MUST mention) was Angel Beats, hands down. Just...UGH. Gorgeous animation, but honestly...Gorgeous animation doesn't make a classic series. There's a reason why a lot of people prefer older anime to new ones, and this is one of them. I'm going to get hate for this, but really...This is my opinion, so why bash it?

*EDIT*

Okay...I had my list of anime out FROM THIS YEAR but for some reason people are ONLY pointing out that I mentioned Angel Beats. Uh, I mentioned that I know AB isn't from this year but I had to mention it anyway so...

And I also see people ARE hating on me for saying what I said about Angel Beats lol. Ah well. Not going to change my opinion.


I think a lot of modern animes have a big problem in making their series filled with tsundere/overly moe/ kawaii characters and are just choking the viewers with amazing animation so they think they're watching an amazing show.

Truth is most modern animes cannot even come close to competing with classics like Cowboy Bebop, or Evangellion (just for examples).

I get the impression that magicuser360 don't watch much anime.


Worst this season is probably:

- La Storia della Arcana Famigla (Poor animation, poor drawing, poor acting, main girl looks subpar and the way things progress is awkward and clumsy)

- Ebiten: Kouritsu Ebisugawa Koukou Tenmon-Bu (I haven't seen this anime, but it doesn't look good at all, and the story makes it clear that it is a bland harem anime)

One of the worst I've tried watching was "Zettai Karen Children". The manga is okay, but the anime is just ugh terribad. I forced myself through 3 episodes, and then I couldn't stand it any more.

Other than that, Dragon Crisis and Yumekui Merry was terrible.

Dragon Crisis was fine in the beginning, but at one point it just spiral downwards into a horrible pit of teenagers in full angst+hormones behaviour, and it was so frustrating watching it. Things didn't get better and the ending was a real "What? are you serious, get out of here!"

Yumekui Merry had potential, but it squandered it all away on an absolutely downright awful ending that made little to no sense and was just frustrating as hell to watch. I was originally going to rate it 7 out of 10 or so, but because the ending was so ..ugh, I rated it 4/10 (same as Dragon Crisis).

For reference, a rating of 5 means I managed to force myself through it, only because I wanted to see how it ended. A rating of 1 would be someone failing completely at animation and drawing and such..

Angel Beats! aired in 2010........LOL.

Worst series so far this year 2012 imo are Ebiten: Kouritsu Ebisugawa Koukou Tenmon-Bu, Hiiro no Kakera, and To Heart: Dungeon Travelers (if that counts).

Magicuser360 got the dates wrong AND has bad taste in anime.

La Storia della Arcana Famigla - watched it purposefully to give me perspective on the good anime I'm watching and it is doing the trick.

Phi Brain - (I think the first season started in 2011 but ended in 2012 so I'm counting it) take average shounen plot - throw in puzzles that seem complex but are never shown that way - add code-names of actual smart people and presto-chango you get a crappy anime.

Some of the above are, imho, disappointing anime, not full out really bad. If you're co-host has to be subjected to yaoi over this, you should have to watch something at least as terrible as 2012's Upotte.

And for the record, the worst anime I've subjected myself to was Burst Angel. I bought the Blu-Ray on a whim, and only got to the end of the series with help from a lot of beer. For full terrible effect, the OP must never be skipped.

Aahh..yeah, I had forgotten about upotte. Another of the co-host that I teamed up with to make the other guy watch yaoi, is doing the fan-service review and I'm pretty sure he's gonna do that one.

Most of them, because story and plots have turned into making most characters into cute kawaii bs.

I don't really know any bad anime so far for 2012, are u just looking for newly released ones? So far I've only SOA, Total Eclipse, and Mysterious Girlfriend X, which all have been good - decent (so far)

sorry I'm no help but for fun's sake I hope you win the bet, It would be hilarious if you made him watch that xD
