As any type of media anime has its ups and downs, whether it be because of bad writers, fan service,it can be atrocious. Which anime that you have watched has had the worst plot?

Can't imagine there being a plot so bad to be called the worst. But there's more likely to be a pool or collection of awful plots that could all be considered the worst together.

I tend to watch only anime that involve action or powers & only the best rated, and out of all those that I've seen, it would have to be Sword Art Online, but I'm sure that there are tons that are worse.

Oh there are so many terrible plots in anime (funny how people think this medium is a treasure trove of compelling stories when it isn't), impossible to narrow it down to one. But then again I've enjoyed anime with terrible plots before, Highschool DxD is an appalling show but I still enjoyed it. But if it has to be one then Garzey's Wing, Green Green or Horizon in the middle of nowhere take the crown for shittiest plot (from what I've seen)

AKB0048: a cartoonishly evil organization wants to ban entertainment, so a group of pop idols bands together to fight them, both literally and musically.

Akira: to this day, I really can't tell you what the hell the plot of this movie was.

DearS: aliens come to earth to be our maids.... what.. the.. fuck....

FLCL: see Akira.

.hack//SIGN - Unison: I liked .hack//, but this OVA was about nothing but the game and anime characters meeting up in net slum to have a dance party...

Love Hina:


Puni Puni Poemy: see FLFL and Akira

UFO Princess Valkyrie: see Love Hina

Ultimate Girls: perverted alien forces young girls to fight giant monsters, ultraman style, while power suits that disappear over time. their strength is determined by their level embarrassment.

Vandread: males and females reside on different planets for 100 years. throw them together, and watch hijinx ensue.

X-the movie: hey, meet these characters. now watch them all die. should've watched the TV series instead, trololololol

never-ending shonen (Naruto, Bleach, Dragonball, One Piece, Inuyasha, Fairy Tail...etc, etc, etc....) since the plot eventually boils down to nothing more than "new and more powerful enemy appears, heroes train to defeat them."

ANY Slice-of-Life anime could be tossed in here, since the plots are about people going about their normal daily lives. not saying the genre is bad or anything.

You don't understand Akira? It's obviously "Let's see how well we can animate psychic powers"

Now you want a plot that makes no sense? Go look at Arm's entertainment's line up of anime.

It's like, low quality Ecchi. Not even high grade! Everything is just D-levels of bad. If I wanted Ecchi, I'd go look up ecchi, if I wanted H, I'd go watch some H.

If I wanted bad Ecchi Anime that was created not to excite fan's, but to sell sexy figures that excite the fan's, something is wrong.

if said anime, that which will not be named, had over 6 seasons of this horribleness, worse would follow.

And you know, War of the 3 kingdoms Knockoff.

Additionally, I have huge problems with the movie "5 cm per second"

Like, spoiler alert, THE PLOT IGNORES PREVIOUS EVENTS!

Like SERIOUSLY. In an effort to give you, the audience, a downer thought provoking ending, it spends 40 minutes telling a decent love story, showing you how the characters really do care for each other and will go to anything for their relationship, THEN GIVES US THE LOVE STORY FROM SAO, TWICE.

Like, you have an hour to tell a story, and you randomly switch gears? NO, freaking NO.

I wanted to watch their new movie, but after I saw "5cm per Second" I'm like, doubting it.

Fanservice/moeblob type animes like K-ON
Typical cheesy shounen animes like naruto, bleach, one piece, even fairy tail is heading down that path

that's not a plot, though.

the only Arms anime I've seen and will ever see is Maoyuu, which was actually good, though prone to moments of slowness and desperately needing a sequel.

I can't really think of any shows that have a bad plot. Probably the closest I can think of are shows like "Chronicles of the Going Home Club" where there is literally NO overarching plot; it only consists of the random events of the girls lives. So pretty much almost every slice of life show. Also any show where the primary focus is fan service not the actual "plot", so High School of the Dead or some such show....but let's be honest, is that really a bad thing?

True, tis not plot, just premise.


Well good! Maoyuu is the only Anime they've ever produced that isn't a crap storm, and jeez does it have potential!
I would much rather they put the show into someone elses hands, because the IP deserves more!

I was originally going to bring up Ikki tosen and Queens Blade, but then I remembered Martial Hearts.

And then I was like waaaait, Arm's created all of those! Arm's you're the Uwe Boll of Anime! Harsh true, but...that's what I'm calling.


Now, between Mayuu and Log Horizon. I'm starting to wonder how Manare Touno is getting these anime adaptions done so differently. I mean if Log Horizon was done by Arm's, I'd have gotten a boob giggle by now, but I would also be complaining about the crappy fight scenes...from a studio that primarily makes anime about women fighting until they're naked.....

Serious studio arm's hate ok? Every plot they have isn't really plot, it's excuse for women having clothes ripped off them.

There are no "worst" plots in an anime series due to fans having different taste. We can all put down shows that we found to have terrible plots but someone would argue against how much they enjoy that show. Different taste for different people even if the show is down right "stupid" to others someone likes it.

I'm confused by this statement. How can you just throw the whole entire genre of Slice of Life into the category of having a bad plot? I won't say that there haven't been any BAD Slice of Life anime (the one that comes to mind being Chronicles of Going Home Club). But I can name tons of Slice of Life shows that have been pretty amazing compared to others I've seen (Anohana, Working!, Silver Spoon, etc.).

I'm not hating, everyone has their own opinion, but I'm curious to why you'd wanna group them all into having a bad plot.
