Seems like nobody has mention the king of hype killing, Pupa. It ingloriously holds the title of worst rated TV series on MAL. That after a lot of hyping.

Well, as I am a big fan of Black Lagoon, when I found out there is an OVA about my favourite arc from manga, and with my favourite character, I was hyped over the top. But, in the end OVA became something, I'm not sure what.
They made Roberta the villain in it, and villains became heros (?), and something that should be glorious action packed, became depressive, illogical (not to mention story who has nothing in common in what we saw previously) piece of horse dung, who almost nobody like.

Non Non Biyori... I expected a plot. Didn't understand the purpose of Slice of Life shows.

Nagi no Asukara... Expected a series about water people and land people existing with eachother. Got a romance drama instead.

*eye-twitch* I'm trying to forget. I really am.

Ah, yes. I only finished one episode, but that was more than enough disappointment for me.


Also, Glasslip. I think I was expecting an interesting slice of life story. but instead I got... I don't know.

I watched two eps of Pupa and was like "Y U DO DIS?!" lol I was expecting a good horror story, instead I got... that abomination. xD

Amnesia still holds a special spot in that place that likes to rant as a god-awful anime. I had no expectations and hadn't set a bar to high, so I guess that's why it irked me so much. It's like they were trying to make a shitty anime and couldn't even get that right.

Every series ever that was several volumes long and only got 13 eps and a horrible anime ending... like Claymore.

I've actually seen a lot of shows that I felt didn't live up to expectations because I started watching them thinking they would be one way, when actually they were another. I still have yet to finish TTGL and LH as well for this reason. I've seen it far too many times with SAO as well, and it seems like someone felt that way with Seitokai Yakuindomo as well. I'm sure TTGL and LH are both great shows if you know what to expect from them, but I can't seem to find it.


magikano. i hate that anime VERY much. wasted a week out of my life

Akaneiro ni somaru saka- I saw this early on in my anime watching days, like maybe 2009 (i think it was already complete when i watched it). I was so hyped because Shana/Zero no Tsukaima and Haruhi were some of my favorite series and i was like omg aya hirano and rie kugimiya in the same anime.
Mediocre VN adaptation. That's not really the problem though.
The ending


not really wrong expectations but TTGL and KLK. Everyone loves them and i feel like i should watch + like them, but i have a really hard time getting into it. Something about the not-serious/over the top comedy kind of tone just makes them be something I'm never fully in the mood for. The vibe i think of KLK as at least is like a really well done flash animation you'd watch on newgrounds or something for laughs + action. That's good for me in short bursts but a whole full 2 cour anime is too much to grind through.

Odd one - Love Live! . when I first heard of LL it was through a chart of the winter 2013 anime and the description was based on the voting done before the singles came out/franchise started at all or something. "the 'ultimate user participation project' which lets its fans vote on the future of fictional idol characters...". I thought it would be some weird anime version of american idol, and had no idea how they'd be able to animate it. Of course it's completely different, but i still love it .

Digging up some old ones here...

Witch Hunter Robin. I think its the first show I saw where I was actually incapable of following the plot, because I became so disinterested in what was happening. I think I expected a crazy magical action show, and that was there sometimes, but it was mostly characters that I couldn't even manage to care about.

Elven Lied. I'll admit it; I bought the show because, hey, naked chicks. Yeah. That was a mistake. In retrospect, I think the show is very good at what it sets out to do...but that doesn't make it fun to watch.

Hmm, probably Wizard Barristers, although that should end up under 'shows that sucked because you hate the protagonist and everything they stand for'.

SAO gets another vote for me too, absolutely no substance at all, just a flashy setting with flashy characters.

How can you not be fascinated by the love tessaract?

Glasslip, expected a slice of life following a girl who's family makes glass stuff.

I got... that's it, the "...." is it.

Samurai Flamengo: With all the twist and turns this show has I expected many great things and it never delivered. This show is a sequelbait and in retrospect you'll regret watching it.
The irregular at magic high school: I expected Tatsuya to be gifted in certain ways that would undermine social structure of the school but I didn't expect him to be this OP. I also did not expect this level of incestrous implications.
Sword art online: What I expected from this show was delivered by Log Horizon.
Kill la kill: I was hoping that this series would reach the same heights as TTGL but it never did.
Brynhildur in darkness: I expected this series to be more dark than it actually was and to have less harem elements in it.

Aldnoah Zero: Come on I can't be the only one that saw Gen Urobuchi and Hiroyuki Sawano on the list of people working for this anime and think it was gonna be amazing. Then the anime happens slaps the audience in the face and flips us off, and says come back next season smiling all smugly at us . I will say while it didn't live up to the expectations I had set for the show, I still enjoyed that very flawed piece of work for some reason

I agree with everyone who has mentioned Glasslip so far.

To be fair though I dropped it after only three episodes. I was like "Ok...this is might alright." Then stuff started to get confusing and magical and I was like "The **** is this show?" *DROP*

This post is everything. Pupa had so much potential but it was and is utter shit.

LOL for me it was Gintama. I saw AMV's of how awesome the action scenes were. i was expecting some bloody samurai show. Turned out to be the funniest and best anime i have ever seen. So worthit!
