Brynhildr in the Darkness. It skipped an entire arc and then crammed 40 or so chapters into 1 episode

That is because almost all adaptations that end up doing there own thing are significantly inferior to the source material that is already established. :/

True. It seems like only a few anime shows actually stick to the manga. *sighs painfully* Too bad there are barely any anime series instead of manga/light novel/video games/etc adapted into an anime series.

Yeah, that is true. I also wish there were more series that were original titles. Of course, there are a few (the Urobuchi titles are usually originals) but there are fewer in number it seems, unless it is an established series already.

It's nice to dream.

I sure didn't like Aku no Hana. I was really looking forward to it's anime adaptation and then they did that.

I know it's titled Manga's with horrible adaptations, but I gotta job on this with a VN and a LN.

FFS Tsukihime and to a lesser extent, FS/N had pretty bad adaptations. Tsukihime was just all over the place in what it was doing, and jumping from arc to arc in spectacular scene fashion without ANY of the exposition. The end result was a horrible adaptation whose individual parts (animation, acting, etc.) weren't that bad. FS/N was victim to the same thing, jumping arcs, because they wanted to flesh out all the characters. And I do think it almost worked, but they didn't do that great a job in it. It wasn't as bad as Tsukihime though.

On the light novel side, legend of legendary heroes was soooooo bad. After it started so good too. I'm not even sure what happened with that one. It was like they had plans for adapting the entire series, but got shut down, so they tried to put something together to give it an ending, and promptly fell flat on their asses.


Yeah the Tsukihime anime was bad, and it was even worse for people who actually played the VN beforehand. As for Legend of the Legendary Heroes ending on a cliffhanger, it's annoying, but they did the same exact thing for Chrome Shelled Regios; which has the same author as Legend of the Legendary Heroes. If anything it seems like the author wanted the anime adaptations to be like that so people would be forced to buy the LN's.

You know what? Rather than name an individual series, let me name a category:

Anything that involves the words "Shounen Jump", "Toei", "Pierrot", and/or "More than 100 manga chapters".

Includes in this illustrious list are: Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, Toriko, Dragonball Z, Yuyu Hakusho and Rurouni Kenshin.

When I hear those words, all I can read is "filler arcs" and "crappy animation budget". Because this combination of factors do not ever think of quality over quantity, and do not believe in taking seasonal or annual breaks so the manga author can catch up and write the story, we are stuck with insanely long runners with incredibly bad animation that makes flash toons look good in comparison. The first and one of the worst offenders is Dragonball Z, which took an entire friggin' year to kill Frieza off, and a bit more to kill Majin Buu off. Both DBZ's several-episode stretches of nothing but punches happening and the several filler arcs for Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Toriko, and D. Gray Man are all tailor-made just to waste our time and introduce us to the concept of fatigue.

But perhaps the worst offender to me is Rurouni Kenshin. NINETY-FIVE EPISODES and they couldn't animate the Jinchuu Arc. I count at least 40 unnecessary episodes that could have been replaced by the entire Jinchuu Arc, but apparently it was too much for production to pause for a year, wait for Nobuhiro Watsuki to pen the series, and then start work on the Jinchuu Arc then.

Okay, technically it isn't Toei or Pierrot (it's by Gallop and DEEN), but the central concept of "unnecessary fillers" and "terrible animation budget" shows up in spades, especially given that the art style is incredibly inconsistent throughout the entire series.
