I envy you all, children.

It's your ignorance, your ability to publicly state an opinion on "the worst" when you've barely scratched the surface of the genre or the medium.

For most of you, your opinions come not from direct experience but from second-hand reviews and opinions gathered on the internet. I mean, I've already peered into your souls and know most of you shit on Gundam SEED and Destiny without having watched either one. You inherited the hate of the past generation and just ran with it.

That is one of the many signs of your ignorance.

But the truth is that none of the things mentioned in this thread, or the things that will be mentioned in this thread are truly the worst.

As long as you have gained some entertainment value, then it's not the worst. You're still on your journey to discover the worst.

But you will never reach the destination. Why, you ask? Because I'm the only person who owns the worst. I discovered it years ago, in a decrepit store on the outskirts of Pyramid street. After experiencing it first hand, I spent years finding every copy of it and destroying it, except for one.

I am the only one to own the worst. It has no wiki page, no ANN article, no TV Tropes, and none of the yahoos who call themselves "ANIME REVIEWERS" could ever dare imagine its existence.

I own it to spite you, I own it to sow chaos among you. If you had the worst then you'd look forward to everything that came out, you'd find joy in entertainment, and you'd never worry about the next thing "being the worst", because it was already made.

So suffer, /m/, suffer you fools. Long before any of you came into existence, I already had my revenge against you.

DaiShogun is worth watching just to see how little you can animate a show and get away with it.

They didn't get away with it and it so so poorly that it's first bluray volume didn't even chart, meaning that it sold under 100 copies in the first week. For reference the other /m/ shows that season all sold higher than it in their first week

I don't know, depends on your measure of "this is so bad, it's funny".

But Great Dangaioh is legitimately shit. Gundam SEED Destiny, even at it's worst, you could say was mismanaged. G Dangaioh is garbage.

An ugly robot, bland uninteresting characters, has nothing to do with Dangaioh and tries to tie itself to the series at the ass end once they realized they were canceled. Starts off with a typical Evil Dr Tries to Take Over The World Plot, and runs through it in the first episode (as a joke), but have nothing up their sleeve after that, so the series meanders around the characters going to high school and complaining about bullshit.

And to top it all off, they lose the final battle and try to play it off with a homage to Great Mazinger.
It's a fucking mess.

It's the first anime that made me contemplate about all the effort that goes into making an anime, even a cheap one, in the first place, and wondering if it's okay to say that their efforts were wasted, and they really made a pile of garbage that's not worth anyone's time, since time is finite.
The answer I got to was "YES".

If Dangaioh ever comes back, I hope they use the Great Dangaioh designs as enemies to be destroyed. Fuck it.

>the series meanders around the characters going to high school and complaining about bullshit.

>one of the baddy of the week's plan is to find out who the pilots of Dangaioh but never got further than which school they attend so she captures their fellow students so they'd tell her who they are
>nevermind that in the very first episode we see the Dangaioh team doing fucking PR work and interviews

It really felt like every episode was meant to be the plot for an individual OVA, each written by a different person who never talked to the other writers, and then the producers slapped the whole shit together into something that vaguely resembles a series.
>>

All mecha is the worst. All of it. Every single one is the same stupid stories over and over and over again. That's why shitposters from other boards migrate here. Because they know and understand mecha is a dead genre. They laugh at you all with their waifu pillows and their frogs and their live action movies. Because they know robots suck and will never ever enjoy success ever again.

Liking something doesn't excuse the fact that it was the worst performing show of that year financially.

The characters are all completely awful (With the exception of the blonde airship pirate girl), the music is bland and unexciting (Even when they do the "Orchestral version of OP theme plays in the final fight" thing), the CG is only passable due to how garbage the normal animation is in comparison, the cliffhanger ending is completely unsatisfactory since it leaves you with more questions than answers, and the few good concepts the show had (Like Susanoo having multiple forms based on which girl was copiloting) go underused. Not to mention the gall the producers had to think people would back a CG Movie version of the first season on Kickstarter after how the TV version ended up.

This is the very definition of a shit anime, not just something like "Oh man the ending sucked worst show ever!" or "Wow that one scene was animated really badly". This is a show people will only remember for being a floundering mess without a single redeeming quality. There are Korean bootleg anime movies I would recommend watching to people instead of this show. This show is an affront to both the medium and the genre and I honestly believe it to be the worst show of the decade, let alone the worst show of 2014.

Galilei Donna - not the worst but still really bad, especially since the first two eps looked pretty cool but it got downhill fast. /m/ had threads when it was new but now nobody talks about it anymore. Makes me think I'm the only person who still remembers it.

Eureka 7.
Only God knows how much I wish to have my 50*22mn of my time back.
Everyone in this show was as stupid as a trisomic on hypoxia. Renton who needed 20 episodes to realise blowing up a mecha kills its pilote, Holland who punched kids, Eureka who played mother to find redemption after her war crimes, her two kids who followed her even if they know Eureka killed their parents, and I can continue like this for hours.
But I think the top of the worst was this fucking nigglet and its annoying voice. I would rather drill my ear drums than listening its voice once again.
Too bad the mecha design and the OST were fantastics.

Okay. A question I pose.

WHY WATCH ANYTHING BAD

Time is limited, you have access to vast stores of anime and the ability to research and choose the good ones.

>>16861432
Sometimes you can find something that had been unjustly bashed by mainstream viewers, but is actually worthwhile.

I'm honestly surprised that anyone listens to them in the first place.

Out of all of the anime reviewers that people religiously follow, I've noticed that none of them have a background in animation (production or history) and, even worse, none of them understand Japanese.

The only anime reviewer who did a good job of reviewing anime was Grumpy Jiisan, who was able to highlight all the negative and positive aspects of the things he watched without coming off as a rabid fanboy or a bootleg rip off of MST3K.

I'm not. It was bound to happen to anime, happened with movies, happened with games. Youtube made it so the people who usually just went into tirades when no one asked them on forums and so on have an audience. And of course since these people are the loudest and most obnoxious while also typically just echoing the popular opinion of your average pleb, they get the audience.

Then on the flipside you have the sites and shit like ANN or whatever, full of people who couldn't cut it at any actual Journalism job (I use that lightly either way) so they were shoved there, again happened with vidya games as well just look at any of the instances of reviewers being shit at games, I mean I'm not good but these people play like you just handed them a controller for their first time by and large.

Are there even any with bacground in lit/english or art? Their analysis tends to fall apart when things go beyond "I like the art style" or "this scene is shit because I hate the characters". Most of film youtube serms to have a degree in film and/or the knowledge to make a film (the quality of which is irrelevant). Anime youtube is too close to vg youtube where the character of the creator is more important than the character of the work being reviewed.

Yes time is valuable but you do earn something even from spending it watching bad shows. You develop your own tastes. You learn what you enjoy and what you don't. You learn why things are good and why they're bad.

And if you're time is so valuable and limited you can't spend it on your own hobby then you need to either get a different hobby or change something about how you're living your life. Your brainless lemming.

Watching a 5/10 show, or something below that, makes you appreciate the 8/10s and 9/10s better. On top of that, sometimes a show, or book or game or whichever, will fail in a lot of aspects but absolutely fucking *nail* some particular aspect that resonates with you and makes it worthwhile. I think it's not a bad thing to roll the dice every once in a while. I think if you aren't enjoying something you picked out you should drop it, but there's little harm in giving something a chance when you think it might appeal to you.

Probably the old Mazinger Z tai Devilman/Getter Robo/Getter Robo G/Great Mazinger/Grendizer/Ankoku Daishogun.
But those are entertainingly bad.
Mazinger tai Devilman is great because of how much of a pushover Devilman and all the demons are. Dr. Hell enslaves some demons with no effort, Devilman is captured by mechanical beasts with no effort, and Mazinger Z just beats the shit out of everything.

I actively hate Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence Boogalloo, it's nearly two hours of Batou just talking out of his ass, though with some pretty visuals at times (but they aren't gorgeous hand drawn cels so who cares).
Not big on the GitS 2 manga either, but lesbians in cyberspace is not something I'm going to hold any grudges against.

Saori Hayami is also nice to listen too. But you're really confusing BAD with something that was mostly just kind of dull. There's not really a lot to PRAISE but there's not really a lot to complain about either.
>>
>>16862560
> But you're really confusing BAD with something that was mostly just kind of dull.
Yeah, that's true, but is it not worse to be dull and forgettable rather than hilariously bad? Mostly just wanted to speak to someone about this show recently either way, figured it'd be a good moment. That said I disagree that Buddy Complex did not have plenty to complain about.

>it made me realize that the majority of /m/ shows people talk about on here aren't as awful as they make them out to be.

Yep. Most of /m/ calls a show bad based on memes, or flavor of the month, popularity, or they just shitposting. And there are also people who confuse bland, boring, or mediocre with bad.

There are truly bad shows out there, for good fucking reason. Dai-Shogun Looks like it was made with fucking power point. People gave Symphogear hell for that one scene of characters 'walking' down a hall, only they are just bobbing up and down with no animation. The entirety of Dai-Shogun is animated that way. I honestly have no idea how people can look at shows like Zeta, Planet with, Active Raid, Aldnoah, G-Reco, whatever and go "this is the worst show ever" when shit like Dai Shogun exists. It's objectively a broken show.

When I consider a show spectacularly bad, it's usually for similar reasons.

Gundress run out of money and was shown in theaters I shit you not, with missing scenes, and story boards in place of animation. Even after they fixed it for disc release it's a shit show. Kissdum TV had the director take off after a few episodes and took the script with him. Skelter Heaven had horrible CGI, and horrible 2d animation. Regalia: The Three Sacred Stars, they aired a few episodes, stopped, went back and reworked the show, and started airing the show back from the beginning. And there is plenty of older shows that are horrible, but I'm going with these since they are all subbed. (Knack shows are notorious.)

>>16861432
Mecha literacy. As much as I disagree with VF's rantings here, one thing he is right about is that the people here limit themselves to such a shallow pool of shows. I think the reason why people keep calling mediocre shows
>The worst show EVAR
is because they have only seen a few shows, and only have a small handful of material to compare it too. That 5/10 show doesn't seem so bad after you watch a 2/10 or 3/10 show.

Shit, you want to know how many times I wonder if today's the day someone starts shitposting Infinite Space? It's a nonzero number thanks to the absolute idiocy that is "more like Infinite Shit amirite?"
>>
>>16862910
>People gave Symphogear hell for that one scene of characters 'walking' down a hall, only they are just bobbing up and down with no animation.
Yeah but they at least fixed that in the Blurays. The only noticeable change I saw watching Dai-Shogun's BDs was removing the steam surrounding characters in the onsen scenes like >>16861413 (And no, they didn't fix the water either)
>>
>>16862910
Regalia has nothing wrong with it. The animation is fine and above-average, and the story is mediocre, not horrible on the level of the other stuff you mention
They stopped airing it and restarted it because the staff was autistic and episodes as they were at first apparently didn't satisfy them.
But it's still far from being comparable to Dai Shogun or fucking Skelter Heaven

That's because plenty of people enjoy anime in that manner. How it looks. How it makes them feel. So these reviews are useful to them. I don't really see anything wrong with it. You have different standard of evaluating anime, good, then you're not part of the target audience of these reviewers. Simple as that.

The world building was pretty poorly done which is especially problematic given the unique setting of the show.

Where did the Gram's mech come from?
What's a Naval Witch and why do they get so old?
Why does the porpoise need a suit to talk but the cat can do it without?
Why is Kubernes' Round Buckler organic?
Why is Gram so good at everything, including using land jets engines without problems in mere seconds that even the ace pilot of the Aurora couldn't properly handle?
Where did all those space sea creatures come from?
Do I have to play the game to understand any of this?

Basically this. the original OVA wasn't great but was a third of the length and was visually impressive. Now while it's not fair to compare a OVA to a series in terms of budget the TV series could have at least delivered on the story front if not the visuals. It did not. In fact it even had the balls to assume people would be up for a sequel.

The problem is all of these reviewers can't speak any Japanese. heavily gating their access to Japanese thinking. They treat anime as existing in a vacuum from the rest of Japan, which is not the case. You can't remove a piece of art from the cultural environment it was created in.

If you study western literature you will find yourself studying the author as much as his actual works. If you try to study Richard III without studying Shakespeare and with zero knowledge of Christianity then your analysis will be weak at best. The same holds true for anime, with the added requirement of Japanese language skills to read all the untranslated material. This means even the ones that are actually smart can only at best produce surface level observations. You need to learn Japanese and then study Japanese history (at least from the late Tokugawa period on) to understand the themes and motifs that the writer/director were going for.

I wouldn't get my hopes up for this ever happening seeing as how the people who get into the youtube business to begin with are the sort who are too lazy to work a real job.
