Worst Serious Recommendation You Had, Worst Taste You've Ever Seen, Etc.
Posted 12/16/15
What is the worst taste you've ever seen or the worst serious recommendation you have ever seen? We've likely browsed MAL or Animeplanet at some point, or asked for recommendation, so whose scoring list baffles you, or whose recommendation simply states what the anime in question is not?


Keep in mind we should talk about the anime and not the person recommending it to a certain extent.

So, you start a thread about bashing people for their tastes and tell us not to bash people for their tastes?

In all fairness, he was only talking about peoples' scores and list, but not the person themselves.

I'll stick to MAL:

Two different people have recommended Elfen Lied based on Clannad: After Story. Because what you need to watch after a heart-wrenching family drama is people getting physically torn to shreds?

Three people have cross-recommended--in anime--Usagi Drop and Koi Kaze. Keep in mind, the Usagi Drop anime is just about a 30-something man raising a 5-yr old girl. Koi Kaze is about a 30-something young man and his teenaged sister falling in love (romantically) with each other.

The School Days anime recommendation list contains both Say "I Love You" and Kimi ni Todoke. In particular, going from Kimi ni Todoke (one of the most painfully cute and slow romances you'll find in anime) to School Days (abundant sex, plus rape, and the defining yandere) would be quite the shock to the system.

For me the absolute worst was http://www.crunchyroll.com/yosuga-no-sora-in-solitude-where-we-are-least-alone and the omooto did so good in the sister contest. Yet it was a horrible show with unlikable main characters. Being uncensored was a distraction. Only one character is the entire series is watchable. On a scale of 1-5 the show would rater a negative 10.

Someone suggested Akame ga Kill to me. We are no longer friends after i finished that anime(jk). I know now to find out if he hates the ending or not now before i take him up on his recommendations, but i will never get back the time i wasted on that series.

No names=Completely by the rules and no one gets hurt.

Ex. Someone recommended me Clannad as a gore fest.

It's not a question of a bad recommendation, different people have different preferences.

I have had a few recommendations that did not align well with my personal preferences. I simply stopped watching and moved on.

Meh. I love the anime.

Now to OP. Was told once that Dragon ball has great characters that make you think. Don't get me wrong, I love Dragon ball but most if no all the characters, are 2 dimensional.
