What anime do you regret watching all the way through the most?
Red Data Girl
The ED and the visuals was the only decent things.
>Terrible obnoxious characters
>stupid "plot" that goes unresolved
>no notable development or characterization
>not even any cute characters to make up for the lack of everything else
I forced myself to finish it, and I regret ever second of it.
I know it's not finished yet but since im this far in I'm gonna finish it
Hamatora wasn't a chore for me but Re every episode is a chore and they keep doing these terrible repeating pun scenes and annoying scene transitions. The story is extra stupid this time too.
I found Nichibros hilarious but Nichijou put me to sleep.
aquarion evol by a mile
shit had no redeeming factors
Howl's Moving Castle
Just out of the top of my head, I just can't drop shit, I regret it everytime.
>mfw eva is literally too deep for some people
Nobunaga the Fool, Mekakushitty Actors, Kill la Kill, Guilty Crown, Mahouka, and Captain Earth.
I'm saving this image for when Mahouka and Captain Earth end.
It took the flaws of the first season and exacerbated them. Art is a shitty villain too.
>mfw people insist it's anything more than a 5/10
Monster. It kept pissing me off, but the ending was by far the most rage inducing thing I've seen in an anime.
Really faggot, after all the people Johan has killed you fucking save his life again? This is not moral, it is the opposite of moral.
Bubblegum Crisis 2040
I'll probably add Stardust Crusaders if I can ever be bothered to finish it. Here I was thinking it would fix the shittiness.
People portrayed it as a deep, philosophical journey... but it's slow, panders worse than the last 2 Matrix films, has a very 90s sense of the internet ("Let me explain chatting to you!") and the ending is anti-climatic.
I watched the last episode, expecting the final battle, only to realize the final battle was the last 10 seconds of the previous episode.
What a waste of my time.
You make me cry, anon.
On topic: I'd have to say Attack on Titan. I was really hyped up at first and then suddenly realized it's a poorly written piece of shit with forgettable characters. Who the hell can like Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman, and Armin Arlert?
From all the characters in that anime, the only I thought that wasn't a complete piece of trash was Jean, and he was still mediocre at best.
Everything else had something going for them, if nothing else the fact that they were so terrible. Nourin? It was just the epitome of mediocre with not a single thing I liked. And it wasn't so bad that I could laugh at that. Just uninteresting stuff happening to people I couldn't give a fuck about.
I didn't watch the final episode out of rage and never will. I wish I could erase every day I spent on the threads between every episode. I should just have seen the gifs and doujins and save myself a lot of frustration. Seriously, fuck that show.
Outbreak Company. Good premise, but it just got worse every episode.
fuck that show, wish I missed the last episode and let my harem dream remain untainted.
You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!
Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!
I was kind of hoping there would be a way to save it.
There wasn't. It was terrible. If I could choose between going back and stopping Hitler or going back and stopping anybody from watching that fucking series, I'd choose stopping Nobunaga the shit
Clannad After Story was great, but I wish the first season never existed. Or at least dumbed down to 5, 8 episodes tops.
It's seriously bullshit that the Fuko episode was the longest arc in that entire series.
I remember the threads clearly
>Surely Jeanne will do something next episode
>Jeanne will surely use her sword to fight
>Himiko will sure die next episode
The delusional fags bending backwards to claim it was getting popular was the most hilarious part.
Everything of this is unwatchable steaming pile of shit. Pledging to not drop anything is suffering.
Also Captain Earth is getting on list as soon as I menage to swim through ocean of crap it is. It's second only to Hamatora in shittyness, fuck everybody who persuaded me to pick it up.
This, but I actaully bothered for season 2, which I don't regret.
I wish I could say it was even a guilty pleasure but it wasn't. There was nothing enjoyable about it. It got to a point whenni just wanted to see how bad the ending could possibly be.
it's easier to watch when you consider it as an anthology of short stories, where the overarching plot is just an afterthought. The individual episodes were pretty neat, and such good OP/EDs.
But maybe you're right, the last episode really didn't add anything to my enjoyment of the series at all.
It was good, it was so good in fact I felt like the characters were actually breaking dimensions to give me some kind of religious animu experience.
I felt this way about madoka too.
I can't believe I got trolled into watching such an awful thing.
Where the hell do you even get the basis of DBZ being more than a 0/10? The pacing is so shot to hell over the course of nearly 300 episodes that it can't even be at 5/10.
Actually, Madoka literally broke dimensions and very blatantly referenced my own life and life of others through the collective consciousness.
Why hasn't anybody acknowledged this?
and the life of others*
Seriously, Madoka proved that the collective consciousness is real. At this point we can literally have anime characters breaking dimensions and reaching out to us.
I'm not trolling or being funny.
That one with Instagram filters? I watched it, I didn't loved it but I didn't found anything on it particularly despicable. Just mediocre fujoshit covered with fanservice to attract more audience. The cat was delicious though.
This piece of fucking shit, IT WAS THE SAME SHIT EVERY WEEK.
Devil Survivor 2 just because i love the game
Worst fucking drag I've ever had to sit through.
Imagine a romcom with the intent of making a parody satire.
To do so, it brings up every fucking cliche and does it deliberately. To the point where you expect the anime to have some message about how cliche this is and how everything in romcom is shit or whatever.
But then it forgets to add that.
And all your left is a 26 episodes of nearly nothing happening because of bullshit.
The male MC is such a beta bullshit faggot he decides to actively do NOTHING even though he knows girls want his dick.
He has literally no hormones to the point where his friends have to force him into a relationship.
And you'd think ''huh, maybe he has a past anxiety or history that makes him this way'' but NOOPE, he's just a faggot.
I fucking hate this show and I regret ever watching it.
''It's the best love story after Toradora'' they said.
Fuck every single person that loves this shit.
Jesus fucking christ, I wish all Madokafag would just fucking leave this board or die.
You just didn't get it.
Johan wanted to fuck Tenma but it showed that Tenma's morals stayed absolute, he is what he is, even in the face of absolute evil.
If he decide not to operate him, it would be the same as shooting him.
And as for the ending itself, it's near perfection.
School days just made me feel empty.
Chuunibyou Season 2
I was much happier with the ending of season 1, where they didn't cock tease the kiss as much and didn't add a fucking seriously useless character.
>Mfw when evafags think their show is deep while they are just believing their own bullshit
>Not being able to enjoy something unless it's spelled out for you.
It wasn't that bad come on, Chitoge made it watchable.
The only animu that I truly regret watching was lucky star. It was that god damn OP and /a/'s shit tastes that made me thought surely it will be good. It's like you faggots complain about endless eight, but less shit happened in an entire season of lucky star.
Yeah she was alright the first few episodes but in the last 4 or 5 it just got out of hand.
Every second she was mumbling in a corner or getting depressed over not getting enough imouto love and cock blocking Dog boy.
Mekakucity Actors, fuck man, I have to give credit to Shaft for making me watch that steaming pile of shit just for screenshots.
I didn't like Lucky Star either. Just because you didn't think it was funny doesn't not make it a comedy.
>Maoyuu Maou Yuusha
every episode you think the next one is gonna be awesome but it never is
Holy shit, yes. At first I thought it was just slow like S;G was, so I kept on going.
Then magic rocks literally rained down from the sky.
I was hoping for something as good as Steins;Gate or
ChäoS;HEAd, but then I got that nonsense.
Infinite Stratos 2
Akuma no Riddle
Golden Time (fuck this one)
Captain Earth. It had such promise, and we're so close to the end now, and it's just been so mediocre it's not even funny. Would have really benefited from being a one-cour series, but even that couldn't completely save it.
M3. It's horrible at this point I can barely get through the episodes.
The atmosphere was really good at the beginning.
I was only watching it because I had heard it was the prequel to S;G, which I was going to watch, so I had no idea what it was about.
I thought it was horror at first.
It also didn't give a shit at how much bullshit it threw out. Shit just happened, and there was nothing that Takumi could do about it.
It kind of felt like schizophrenia as I understand it.
Nothing makes sense, and everything is evil.
Everything about it was the ultimate "fuck you" to the viewer, especially the 'Mysterious Stranger'-esque ending.
I haven't read the VN, but I've heard that, if it was 24-episodes it would have been better.
please don't, it'll make you cringe everytime
fucking retard girls getting mad over nothing.
ending is open so they're even going to make a season 3 probabely.
will watch for science
Elfen Lied wasn't THAT bad. Chobits is not bad either.
Elfen Lied was one of the first shows I watched online so it has nostalgic value
The rest of those are 100% shit though. Didn't even bother finishing Angel Beats,
Oh look, one of these threads again. OP, you might as well write "What anime do you regret watching all the way through, but is also popular so you can show off how superior your tastes are", since 90% of the replies are answering in that way.
Da Capo is probably mine.
You're favorite char must be Meta Knight.
Chaos;Head, only picked it up because of S;G.
SAO is a very close second though, I would've stopped early if I knew I wouldn't get any more Silica episodes.
Tegami Bachi was the worst overall. Took 2 days to force myself through 1 episode before dropping. Fuck whoever published and animated that shit.
I always knew /a/ had shit taste but this is ridiculous, either that or it's bait.
Well it wasn't my cup of tea but I thought it was decent I think. Most people probably haven't even read the manga and having a half ass end that will never happen makes it even worst.
Kill la Kill
The first episode was so good. If only it could have upheld the quality for more than a single one.
Either Jackie Chan Adventures or Fighting Foodons.
Nothing comes to my mind right now, I drop stuff easily. However, I should've dropped Prince of Tennis way earlier than I did (episode ~95). I don't even watch sports but for some reason I always get really addicted to sports stuff, especially baseball and I've yet to see a single baseball game in my life.
SNK, Ergo Proxy with EP taking the lead by far. I naively watched it hoping that all the namedropping would click, that all the nonsense would pay off. Instead I just sat there at the finale and mourned my lost time
>tfw enjoyed every show ive watched
No doubt i probably have shit taste but god damn this is a good feeling
>All of my favorite shows have been mentioned at least once so far
None, if I dislike a show that much, I drop it instead of forcing myself to suffer through it.
I get the feeling the one I'd regret the most would be the one that's so amazing it towers above all other shows. Watching it all the way through means there's no more of it, and every other show would look like shit afterwards.
Rurouni Kenshin: anime was ruined by filler (I should have read the manga instead)
Fullmetal Alchemist: see above
Full Metal Panic: nothing about the first season - be it story, characters, action, comedy, romance etc. - was good at all. Fumoffu wasn't that funny either.
Elfen Lied: the most boring, pointless show ever made.
Code Geass: dumbest show to take itself seriously this side of Elfen Lied.
Zoids Chaotic Century: Well actually I don't regret it even though I greatly enjoyed the first half, but the second half (known as Guardian Force) felt like a chore to watch through and I just wanted it to be over already.
Lucky Star: a comedy anime that fails at being funny.
Black Rock Shooter.
It was part of a deal with a friend. I watch BRS and read either 2 manga or a single longer one (chose Berserk) and he plays through Baldr Sky.
Fucker never did his part.
>Rurouni Kenshin: anime was ruined by filler
You really exaggerate here. Just stop after Shishio and it's done
>Fullmetal Alchemist: see above
This one is even more silly, since the first anime was still great despite not following the manga.
>Elfen Lied: the most boring, pointless show ever made.
I didn't like it either, but that's even more hyperbole out of you.
>Code Geass: dumbest show to take itself seriously
More like you're too dumb to realize that show wasn't taking itself seriously much of the time.
>Lucky Star: a comedy anime that fails at being funny.
Humor is highly subjective, plus it has its moments. Like when they sing classic anime theme songs.
Yea both of those series had good animation for stuff then were just terrible story and character wise and endings that makes no sense.
>Futari wa Milky Holmes
Literally no Fun allowed.
Terrible ending was worst I've seen in anime.
It just kept getting worse and the last specials were a fucking joke.
Anything that started off well enough, but then came to fucking nothing, like Working!!, Sacred Seven, Chuunibyou, Eureka seveN AO, Kokoro Connect, Kyousou Giga, Noragami, Sacred Seven, SAO S1, Index, and of course Naruto
>dropped about 5 episodes in
>listen to the OST all the time
One of the greatest ever made
I would've said Star Driver if not for all the pay-offs. A couple of those episodes were completely amazing. Namely, the last, which may or may not have made the whole thing worth it.
Toaru majutsu no index, its so shitty it changed my entire point of view on art and entertainment. Until I watched Index I thought every story was worth knowing and good feelings and lessons could be extracted from any story. But there's nothing redeemable about the piece of shit that is index. The lesson to be learned was there's 8 hours of my life I'll never be able to get back and I should drop shitty shows without a second thought.
I had the exact same experience. It lowered the bar on how shitty I thought anime could even be by several scores. I had to go back on some bad ratings I gave other shows and bump them up just so I could fairly give Index a 1/10
But the English dub is comedy gold. My favorite moment is towards the beginning of MD Geist 2, when a man narrowly misses death at Geist's hand and screams an elaborate plot recap for episode one.
> No one has said texhnolyze
holy fucking shit..
Well shit I did not read what I typed until I pressed enter.
Also anon I was not really trying to ridicule your opinion as much as i was trying to say that a lot of anons had suicidal thoughts after how depressing it was.
Probably more of the reason why no one besides me has posted it.
I regret that I ever were a slave to my backlog and consumed anime and manga as my primary hobby instead being secondary. It burned me out, I felt like forcing myself trough it. Not anymore, if any anime becomes a chore to watch and I don't see any redeeming qualities it gets dropped. If it becomes a chore but I find it to have quite a few redeeming qualities I put it on hold forever without ever feeling forced to watch it.
I regret even starting Milky Holmes. I couldn't believe someone hoped drawing colorful blobs on screen is enough to make an anime show. I still can't believe thy made two more seasons.
But I didn't watch it all the way through.
Devil and Realist
I should have dropped it in the first two episodes, but I like fantasy settings. Worst decision.
On a related note, why do people say Oreimo is hard to finish? I really enjoyed it all the way to the last few minutes
except for the fact that they decided to stop being lovers
Truth be told, Turn A Gundam. It wasn't what I was looking for in an anime at the time, but the universal praise it received kept me thinking that it was a slow burn, that the story and characters would develop into something amazing. Unfortunately I didn't like it anymore after 20 episodes than I had after the first three, and by then I felt like I had invested too much time into watching it to drop it midway through.
One thing I can say for Turn A is that it was never quite bad enough to drive me away. From mediocre start to mediocre finish.
Fushigi Yuugi, goddamn I don't know what I was thinking in that it would get better. See, most things that are horrible or mediocre at least have the decency of only being 12 episodes at most, so you can at least get a cheap laugh or two or enjoy fapping to one of the girls.
I fucking hated everything about Fushigi Yuugi though except Nakago's scene's, and even that was sort of bland. I ignored the warnings that went off in my head since episode 4, and paid for it in tedium.
Sousei no Aquarion. Marathoned it all in one day while I was sick and had nothing better to do. I can say without a doubt that it is complete and utter garbage.
>Put your hands together. What is inside your hands?
>Darkness. But there is also warmth!
All I could think was "why the fuck am I still watching this?" I do not believe that question will ever have a satisfying answer.
mekakucity actors, date a live, spice & wolf, gintama, pupa, deadman wonderland, ryuugajou nanana no maizoukin, .hack//sign, imocho, ergo proxy, samurai 7, bleach, occult academy, escha & logy, seikoku no dragonar, air, soul eater not, flcl, space dandy, chobits, desert punk, cowboy bebop, tsuyokiss, another, yumekui merry, honey & clover, corpse party, hellsing, binbou shimai monogatari, kanojo ga flag wo oraretara, d.gray-man, kill la kill, black cat, black butler, nichibros, love hina
How can someone's taste be this shit
You're a peculiar guy. Even though I might agree with most of your list, there are so many similar ones, both in style, narrative, characterization and atmosphere. Do you actually enjoy hating what you watch?
I like to give everything a good chance, even though I knew early on most of them would disappoint me. That, and I usually juggle a good 6 anime from my backlog at a time, along with seasonal anime. I don't think I could've stomached marathoning any of those.
I have seen most of those anime named in this thread when I was still a peasant, back then when I started watching anime. Those anime definitely helped to refine my taste so I don't regret watching them, it's even the opposite, I have quite fond memories of those awful anime. If I watch an awful anime nowadays it gets dropped and never has the chance to recover.
Most people think it's trash because they look at it and think "Oh look, yet another bland, substanceless wish-fulfillment anime that panders to loser otaku, starring Mr G. Stu and his harem of vapid whores with no personality outside of wanting his dick." where as BTOOOM is actually a cut above the rest of that dreck even if it does have its fair share of laughable flaws (like the romance between the two lead characters, which wasn't done very well, but still better than SAO and Mahouka, which still isn't saying much).
What's with Nichijou fans getting so offended when someone says they didn't like the show?
On the topic of the thread, I regret watching Watamote, Those Code Geass spin off movies, Kill La Kill, Rebellion Story and last but most likely least: Nichijou
As much as I liked Madoka I didn't enjoy Rebellion's ending at all.
I don't want to just keep on talking about pmmm but it disappoints me that the ending happened just because they wanted some build up for a sequel. That idea alone ruins the film for me
Each anime that is on my watch list went through a meticulous choosing process so I don't have to waste my time with shit shows and regret my decision. So far, I haven't regretted watching anything which means I've been bretty gud at knowing my own tastes.
I guess because of this, my list may not be as long as yours, anons.
The only anime I regret watching, School days.
There was this one backstory pic, so his father is like the dude with a necklace that makes him immortal and he said fuck every bitch and enjoy cuz I'mma fuck them all.
Same father carried on 4 generations of daughter father incest, in the same family meaning he was great grandfather, grandfather, father and lover of one of his bitches.
fucking beyond retarded. Regret watching every second of it, still can't comprehend why did I watch the whole thing.
if they didn't think it was nice, they wouldn't have done it even for the money
Everyone said it already but Kill la Kill
I guess I was really just hoping for PSG S2.
The soundtrack was super disappointing, though I could go on all day about things that disappointed me compared to PSG.
Picked it up because mom saw it on netflix and wanted to watch it with me.
I screened it first and marathoned it.
Only too late did I realize what a gigantic homo I was for doing so.
>Yami to B?shi to Hon no Tabibito
First show I ever watched on a 2nd screen.
That fucking ending. I liked season 1 a bit.I was half-enjoying 2 until that FUCKING ending.
>don't have much to do with the situation
>literally discussing how continued use of the series will line their pockets
>a likely reason why they wanted to continue the series
if they thought it would destroy it they still wouldn't go ahead with it. It gives a lot of money, sure, but the difference between 3 and 4 movies isn't so big as to make them destroy it. If they went ahead with the "continuing allowed" end it's because they also liked that. Which is what I had already written before your pointless truisms, but yeah
SAO. I didn't finish the entire season, but I watched all the way through the first game. Jesus what a train wreck. I knew by episode 3 that I didn't like it, but everyone kept saying that it got better.
It's basically cute magical girls doing cute things as the girl goes around catching rogue clow cards. It follows a typical "monster of the week" formula. It has a lot of homosexual subtexts, particularly between the main characters.
I know I have this one title that made me cringe so hard for the bad comedy throughout and how pointlessly bad it ended. I think it was some harem shit. But I'm glad I actually drove it out of my memory.
