Oreimo. loli+yuri+incest = bad combo. Season 1 wasn't that bad though because it was about cute sibling bonding and didn't have any of that weird stuff in it.

Little Busters was pretty bad too because the characters are so dumb. CATS CAN'T WRITE JAPANESE. YOU ARE IN HIGH SCHOOL, YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS!

and I didn't like Fortune Arterial either. It had a high school senior who acted, looked, and sounded like she was in elementary school. Plus, this girl had a little sister (11th grade) who was far more mature, yet the senior who acted young was always taking care of her. It was awkwardly unrealistic watching an elementary looking girl taking care of her sister and not the other way around.


Why is Oreimo bad? You didn't seem to have much of an explanation for that. oreimo is actually VERY original, an otaku trying to struggle between social norms, hypocrisy, bigotry, biased, and opinions. That's VERY original and I love that show Loli + Yuri + Incest? That's not much of a reason to say it's the worst. Oreimo is probably the best.


My reasons for disliking Oreimo are because I strongly dislike loli, yuri, and incest genre anime, and the three of them combined are a bad mix for me. I never said anything about hating it because it was unoriginal. In fact, I agree with you when you say Oreimo is very original. As for SAO, I had never watched an anime that was able to appeal to me on an emotional level before until I watched it, so I was curious if you knew any anime that were similar to SAO in that aspect or even did a better job at doing so.
Sorry if I offended you, I didn't mean to, I just want to find good anime to watch.


One thing....Oreimo is not a yuri show, so I don't even know if you watched it.


I consider Kirino's love for girls in games to be girl love. And In the first eps of season two the way she acted about her new virtual gf was strangely similar to the way I felt with my bf when we first started dating. Of coarse, my theory she is in-the-closet lez is purely speculation and nothing more.


I hate season 2, I love season 1.

As I said before, the plot of School Days was not original, and neither were the characters. Just because you haven't seen it done in an anime doesn't mean it's original.

First off, it probably *has* been done in an anime, and you just didn't see it.
Secondly, on the off chance it hasn't been, you need only go watch some soap operas, they do this stuff all the time. Changing the medium a story is presented in does not make it original.

If Hamlet were made into an anime, nobody would praise the creators for originality. Neither was Romeo Must Die original.

Also, for what it's worth, aside from the murder, I've seen School Days occur in reality. So I guess if I created an anime about my days as a clerk at a store and ended it with a murder, you'd consider it original, since probably no anime has done this yet.

Concerning female leads being pathetic/joined at the hip, you can say that about both in School Days, but especially the pushover.

Also, School Days is based off an ero game; clearly, making this into an anime was more a marketing decision than the work of a creative artist, these conversions always are, just like video games made into movies (Doom, anyone? Bloodrayne?). Who's appealing to the lowest common denominator now?

Anyhow, I'm not sure the sort of stuff you mentioned as "reactions" in SAO are what I was referring to.
I was referring to e.g. the different lives people chose to lead. There would be people that were afraid to risk their lives, and tried to live a normal life. There would be people that won't stand for being stuck in the virtual world. There would be people that are content to live there. The ways in which typical, and quite frankly overdone, MMO mechanics that apparently will still exist in a cutting edge game 20 years from now, influenced the daily lives of the people living in the virtual world, were well thought out.
Was this the primary concern of the creators? Maybe not, but at least they tried to develop a different setting than a school, which seems to be the setting for the vast majority of anime.

Were the characters anything special in SAO? No, not really. Most characters in anime are not very original though, sadly; I find it hard to be too critical in that regard, since it's such a common shortcoming. If you can recommend some anime with actually creative characters and stories, please do.

Certainly, I don't think SAO is one of the best anime I've seen, but School Days is, in my opinion, guilty of many of the same flaws SAO has - it lacks creativity in its storyline and and features uncreative, one dimensional characters.

Is School Days unfairly criticized/hated? I think so - I think many people may have been tricked into believing it would be a nice romantic comedy, and that things would all work out in the end, and then... well, depending on how you feel about the characters, you may or may not be satisfied how it ends.

If I've come across hostile in any way above, I assure you that is not my intent. I was simply attempting to compose this quickly before I turn in for the night, which I should have done an hour ago; I swear my common sense decreases with each passing year.

School days.


Totally agree. Did you see it all? I was lucky and read about it in the wikipedia. Such bad endings and gore is pointless to watch. So I stopped in episode 4 or 5 or something.


Yes sadly I did, and regretted it a lot.


I can understand. Glad I figured that one out. Crazy stuff... You on the other hand were not that lucky. Damn anime is full of traps.

Maybe "Original" wasn't the right word, but "rare" at least, something that people don't usually see. I just think honestly think that the men who did School days took a bold chance and SAO was all about appealing to the lowest common denominator. I'm not saying every anime doesn't have their share of cliches, but I'm saying when a show is overly dependent on cliches is when it goes bad. School days isn't "original" but it's rare and not really safe and I admire people who take chances with things they love rather than play it safe.

Well, it can't be denied that School Days is hated by far more people than the average anime, so it must have done something different than most.

It is rather funny to think that the storyline of School Days is so rare in anime that some would find it refreshing, when it would be considered cliche in other mediums. Then again, when Halo was released, all the console players acted like they'd just discovered first person shooters, so I guess there are parallels in other media.

... I just equated School Days with Halo. I'm going to get killed by fanboys.

If it means anything, I think it was a good comparison.

I can't really pick 1 out of these bad animes, so here's a whole list.

- Majestic Prince
- The Severing Crime Edge
- Henneko: The Hentai Prince and The Stony Cat
- Campione
- The Ambitions of Oda Nobuna
- Mushibugyo


My reasons are these animes have pointless characters/plot... I just fail to see any meaning behind the stories. Or I can't really connect with them.

I honestly don't know how these stories make it into animation, maybe their manga sales were high or something.

Thanks for your support; I hope you'll have my back when the angry mob of Halo fans is at my door.
Though as long as I can use a keyboard and mouse, I'm sure I can beat them.

Dance in the Vampire Bund

I only watched it because their was nothing else on Netflix that I was REMOTELY interested in, and I like vampires (Dracula, Alucard, NOT TWILIGHT). Turns out, I got mild kiddie-porn, shitty story, AND a terrible dub.

So yeah. worst show I have seen so far.

Would you really say that this was... the worst anime?


It's definitely a contender for worst that I've personally seen. Every episode resolved in the exact same predictable way with no struggle or tension ever occurring, the protagonist was incredibly annoying and stupid even by ecchi standards, and basically everything else was just really generic.

I can't think of the worst anime I've seen. That might be because none of the ones I've seen tops another with how bad it was, or may just be because I haven't seen any terrible anime

For me I had a difficult time with Ano Natsu de Matteru. It was ok, I guess. I just couldn't stomach Kirishima and Takatsuki. I am still watching a series or two per day, I am sure that i'll come across much worse soon.
