What is your most disappointing series, /a/?
The series you had the highest expectations for only to crash back down with the reality of how shitty it is.

I really expected more from FMA but the story looked really generic to me.Probably i just don't like it but it's a good anime.

Not a series but The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.

It was a below-average drama and a mediocre time travel story. I can't see where the people calling this a masterpiece are coming from at all.
>>
>>135079389
There is no way the fan base affected the quality if the show.

However, I was disappointed by OPM because I thought it was boring.

The constant self praise about it going to change/save everything about anime only for it to be saturated in the very same tropes Yamakan continuously and openly shat on an shuned others for using.

He thought he was bringing gods gift to anime in Fractale only for it to be the boring piece of shit it was.

Gurren Lagann.
It had everything I was looking for in a series. Over the top mecha action with lots of yelling with a fantastic OST. A lot of casuals love it, so I figured it couldn't be THAT bad.

It was complete garbage. First time I tried to watch it was years ago. Made it to episode 5 because Kamina and Simon were unbearably annoying.
Tried watching it again a couple months ago. Made it to Kamina's death but I was pushing myself so hard through the series that I couldn't bring myself to watch anymore of it.
Third time I made it to Nia's appearance and suddenly edgy Simon. Dropped it again.

I'm going to attempt to read the manga, but who knows how that will go. I'm just desperate to salvage anything out of this series at this point.
>>
I dropped AO by episode 10 but not because I wasn't enjoying it. Felt well made. Why the universal hate /a?
>>
>>135079389
I was disappointed because most of my favorite parts of the manga were extra chapters that weren't animated.
>>
>>135079890
Nigga what? Gurren Lagann is legitimately a top 5 animu.

I actually still need to finish it, but only because I want to make the good things really last.

It's still one of my favorite anime, though. I just wish it could have finished as strong as it started. The first five episodes or so were some of the best world building and character development I've ever experienced.
>>
>>135080124
I've seen the vast majority of it, right up to the episode where Viral and Simon make peace and decide to team up.

I don't really care b/c I'm not that much into anime anyway.

I adore Getter Robo, actually. Watched all the OVAs, read Getter Robo/Getter Robo G and I'm reading Getter Robo Go at this very moment and enjoying it.

Because BONES took an entirely different series and gave it the face of Eureka 7. It was like being presented with what looked and smelled like a good cup of coffee, only to find out what was in the cup was actually hot vinegar with black food dye.

I don't overhype for most things because I usually don't know what's coming out until the first or second week of the season, but Rail Wars was some serious bullshit. Was totally into the cabooses from the preview art, but the series was just so damn boring.

A bad anime attracts fans who can't handle it being called shit.

This is objective fact. If your anime is great then you don't pay attention to what people say about it because it doesn't ring true. If it's shit, then you FEEL the need in your core that you have to protect it to justify the time you wasted watching it.

All you fags are doing is proving One Punch Man is objectively shit.

A Dog does not need to be defended when someone calls it a Cat because it is indisputably a Dog.
>>
She didn't deserve such a terrible adaption ;_;
>>
I can't say anything about AO that hasn't already been said but to add to the list, I'd have to say Glasslip.

It got a lot of hype and it seemed like it was going to be a great show but it just kept getting worse and worse. It just made all the wrong decisions and it's like it was written by two people that hate each other and want to bring the other down. I would have dropped it but each episode set up the next like it was finally going to get really good

Why did you respond then? Why do you care what a random person on an Anonymous image board says about an anime? If it's good I can't do anything to make it not be good? Why do you need to convince people that good things are good? What is the point of your post? Why are you posting?

Conversation. Dialogue. This is what makes us human. To verbalize feelings and thoughts. To be a proving ground for those uncertain of what they believe

Because Anime is great

This, except I'm not kidding.
I went in expecting MANkoto, just like /a/ always described. Instead I found the standard loser harem protag, where the only way he's any different from the rest is that he actually accepts the free sex girls offer him.

Terror in Resonance. Watanabe is my boy who can do no wrong, except this one time where he made a mess of a show. I liked the idea of it all, but where the show actually went was a bummer and a half. Narrative aside it was great, but I can't say I wasn't let down.

FLCL.

I can't believe so many people actually liked that nonsensical garbage. I have never experienced a more torturous 18 minutes in my life.

I tend to get lucky and either enjoy the stuff i got hyped up for or keep my expectations grounded so disappointment isn't so harsh.

Then came Katekyo Hitman Reborn. Kept my expectations grounded and it still stomped every enthusiasm i had for it. Early on it had great set up for any battle shounen then came the fucking Future arc; the drop off point. Wasted a lot of time watching the anime and even read the manga. Dropped it for years and even now i have lingering thoughts of finishing it just to let it end.
