It's Akame Ga Kill for me, builds up characters then gets so lazy it just progresses the plot by killing every character except the least interesting one. THEN HAS THE AUDACITY TO BAIT AN ACTUAL ENJOYABLE CHARACTER LIVING, and they die from bleeding out like ten hours later wtf

Ghost Stories was so bad that they let the English dub team do whatever they wanted, making up a bunch of stupid nonsense lines. So it's one of those it's so bad it's good.

It took me three separate attempts to finish this because people kept telling me it was good and that I just needed to get into it more etc. Watching all of it didn't help, I still hated it.


May I also add Hagure and Shinmai. I cannot describe the loathing and hatred I feel for them (both by the same author btw). They are everything bad about the battle harem sub-genre turned up to 11 with the bass boost on and audio compressed to ass being played through a cell phone plugged into $20 speakers via a $1 cable.

In fact just having to write this has made me angry; that's how much I dislike these piles of various words I cannot use on this forum.

Aho girl is probably the most recent anime I've watched that was awful. But nothing can even come close to the pure terribleness of school days, its bad on every level, even stuff like recently my sister is unusual or diabolik lovers are both bad but funny at the same time. You can laugh at them, but school days is bad and boring at the same time.

dang. im surprised to see stuff like Death Note on this list. Idk about you guys but the whole bad guy winning for most of the show is kinda why i liked it XD. the bad guys never win in the long run but i liked death note for that and the fact that it was just so weird and interesting. i suppose a show i disliked though was the netflix Fate/Apocrypha. Every fight scene sounded like some stupid bass drop and it was super annoying. i dont hate the show though. just the audio >.<

Log horizon 2.

I enjoyed season one and was looking forward to two. It was beyond boring. One of those where you feel like it’s been at least 20 min since you started watching it, check the time on video player, 5 min. Ugh.

I don’t usually stick with shows I don’t like long enough to throw them into a worst anime category but off the top of my head Log Horizon 2 would be the winner of that. I’m sure I’ve seen worse tho.

Here we have another topic where i will name bad ones once i give myself some time. But let's start with the worst one.

The Reflection:

There are some shows which i consider as bad, but is, without an doubt, the worst i have ever seen. After watching the first episode, i was confused of what did i just watch. However, the main reason is the animation. Looks horrible.

And i suppose it goes without saying that it's my opinion?

I would argue that the appeal of Light as a character is that he is an angsty narcissistic teen, and he's a monster for indulging his ego. I'm not saying you're wrong about how the show makes you feel, but if you think of Light from a different perspective you might enjoy it a bit.




Gate is the only so bad it's good anime I've watched other than Garsey's Wing, but I dropped it once the terrible awful stupid action stopped.

Berserk 2016. My friends and I basically watched it out of morbid curiosity to laugh at the animation, but it has the terrible side effect of being how we consumed that arc of Berserk for the first time. We've seen the 1997 anime and the movies though, so it hasn't turned us off the series.

Afro Samurai Resurrection. Gorgeous animation but it lost the story focus that the first series had.

Dropped Naruto at the time skip and Bleach after the Soul Society arc because I felt I could predict the entire story with, "main character loses to a stronger enemy, trains, beats the enemy, then hits a stronger enemy, etc."


That's literally the entire shonen battle manga genre. Which is also, by far, the most popular genre...

Weird thread. There's probably 15+ anime that come out every 3 months, and with all the trash that is made (from horribly done adaptations to ridiculously generic harem rom-coms), people are listing things like Dragon Ball, Death Note, and Attack on Titan . Y'all need to watch more anime if that's actually the "worst" you've seen, or else you need to stop watching anime entirely as it just doesn't seem to be for you.

Meh, Aho Girl was an anime based on a gag manga. It's not a deep instrospective story or beautiful flowery romance, and was never intended to be. I enjoyed it for what it was, but it's definitly not for everybody. Honestly surprised how many 4-koma gag manga end up getting anime. Doesn't bridge the gap very well.

Aho Girl was Meh but Handshakers & Berserk 2016 were a lot worse.

Both anime are dog crap and for similar reasons -

Incoherent direction, bad writing and ugly, janky visuals that made it impossible to figure out what was going on half the time.

Avoid these smelly turds and watch something else instead.
