    Let's face it, some animes don't really hit the mark in your heart. There are some that you just don't enjoy!

    What are these animes that you don't like? Is there a reason that you don't like them? What is that reason?

    Naruto/Naruto Shippuden.
    • There are a FEW good moments in either series, but as a whole they are just sub-par.
    • The main character sucks.
    • Half of the supporting characters are more interesting/likable.
    • The ideas that are presented as the main theme of the story change every other minute.
    • There is inconsistent (and incredibly stupid) character writing in addition to a large number of massive plot holes.
    • The writer constantly breaks his own in-universe laws/rules.
    • Many key plot points are predictable.
    • Masashi Kishimoto is not a good storyteller.
    • The majority of the Naruto fan base is unintelligent and illogical (the Narutards).
    • The universe and story of Naruto had so much potential, but it was ultimately wasted.


    Believe it. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    A friend of me made me watch FLCL, after doing some research, I was prepared for something over the top, disturbing or hilariously bad... It was neither, it's just weird and lame.

    Also Mysterious Girlfriend X, don't ask why, just don't watch.

    Someone recommended that I watch this one called School Days and I've regretted that decision to this day. I watched the beginning thinking it was going to be just another dumb school romance, but dear lord what a mistake. Let's just say I haven't spoken to this person since they told me to watch this...

    I implore you to at least read a summary of what happens, It's the craziest storyline I've ever heard. I have no idea how this even got put into production... I will warn you, it's quite graphic.

    Completely agreed, don't watch it. Unless if you're into that kind of weird stuff... Which we apparently are :/

    Also, if you like to keep your sanity somewhat intact (then you shouldn't be on Lake Valor anyway), then don't watch Elfen Lied. However, if your sanity is already long gone, go ahead and watch it, it's your choice :)

    Genocyber. It is a couple of OVAs but overall it makes little sense. And it is VERY graphic violence-wise, with disembowelments a plenty. I'd also urge y'all to give the Wolverine anime a miss. It's...such a lame story, featuring a skinny-Jackman Wolverine. Simply awful.

    FLCL however wasn't that bad. Nonsensical, sure, but it was only a few episodes of sheer randomness. And its last ep was fairly sweet.

    @[member="Slowbroongus"] senpai... Im afraid i must disagree with you..

    But back to point!

    Blood lad.

    I watched few episodes of it... it really wasn't sinking in for me. Very floating story, not very deep.
    I also didn't like the fight scenes.

    Also i was trolled to watch Boku no pico. I have horrible friends.

    I would absolutely not recommend Shinsekai yori. Watched a few episodes and dropped it instantly when those very young children started being disgusting in ways those who have seen the series would probably recognize. I also wasn't a fan of Kill la Kill due to all the unnecessary suggestive themes and near-nakedness.. tried to give it a shot and watch the entire show but in the end I ended up only slightly less appalled by it. Ehh.

    I haven't truly met an anime that made me turn my head like Bludgeoning Angel Dokoro-chan it's the most god awful thing I've ever seen. Full of cliches, unneeded gore, and a plot line that tries to be so comedic it falls flat. 24 episodes and I barely got through two. This is coming from someone who's seen tons of anime. Trust me, it's not worth it.

    Lucky Star--You know you're in trouble when you almost fall asleep during the first episode waiting for something--anything--interesting to happen.

    I honestly can't say that I've watched any animes that have bored me. I try to stay towards certain genres that I know I'll like. Also, it's really hard for me not to like a show/movie, so, yeah.

    Glasslip - One of the most confusing anime shows I've ever seen in my life and it got a 5.69 out of 10 on My Anime List. It's one of those anime shows that doesn't make sense at all starting from the beginning until the very end of the series. They left out a lot of information, it was a huge mess heck even I couldn't keep up with it. The only reason why I lasted until the very end of the series is because of my favorite character Hiro Shirosaki. His side story was the only one that made sense and he was the smart one out of everyone. Unless you want to figure this anime out yourself I highly recommend not watching it. I do admit though this anime has fantastic designs. I love the art style for the landscapes it's very pretty.

    First Squad The Moment of Truth, if you're fond of your mind and don't like mindfuck anime don't watch this one even if is only a 90 minutes movie. While it can be good is not for everyone and can seem every confusing and unorganized to some.

    Backing up Lucky Star and adding K-On! They're just boring. I understand it's slice of life but that doesn't mean it has to put you to sleep.

    Another one is School Days DO NOT WATCH THIS literally every character is bad, all of them, none of them have any redeeming qualities. The only episode I liked was the final one.

    Agreeing with @[member="Nyanja"] about Glasslip. It is one of the worst anime I've ever watched; Glasslip has little to no plot, is far too strange for a "romantic SOL", and makes utterly no sense. At first it was interesting, given that it enticed me to figure out what the heck was going on, but in the end didn't deliver anything of substance. Sadly, the most interesting part is when the main character gets nailed in the face.

    Another one on this list for me is Demon King Daimao. Probably my fault for not knowing it was an ecchi anime before I started watching, but I hate not giving an anime a chance. I can honestly say I don't get the appeal of an ecchi anime; the gags that make you laugh the first episode are completely blown up and over used (better ban it to Ubers). Again, the best part of this anime is when the main character nearly gets blown up himself. He probably should have been, to be honest.

    Knights of Sidonia. You may or may not have heard of it cause it's only on Netflix. It's bad, like I regret wasting my life watching it bad. The characters are incredibly stupid, and all the female characters fall for the main character for absolutely no reason. No... just no. They're all idiots, every last one of them. You can't feel for any of the characters, cause they're bland and/or ditzy as all hell.
    The action sequences don't even make up for it.

    And before I forget: Black Blood Brothers. It suffers the exact same problem Knights of Sidonia has. Except, the characters aren't so much bland and ditzy as they are just poorly written and not well defined. Also Twilight Syndrome. Vampires aren't romantic, or sexy for that matter.
    At least they got some of their facts straight. Their vampires actually get hurt in the sun.

    I've watched both of these 100%. I dunno why I did, but I strongly suggest you don't do the same.

    Sorry, but I have to disagree with you, @[member="LunarRabbitPikachu"]. I actually prefer to watch horror and gore animes, so I enjoyed the anime a lot! ^-^

    @[member="TehAbsol"] Well, I like watching blood/gore too; it just had a terrible ending. Plus, I meant to say for those people who don't like that kind of stuff. ^^;
