    Re: What anime (new or old) has disappointed you recently? Why?

    Oh goodie, a thread to complain!

    Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold.
    As a fan of the original TV series, I was quite wary of the series after what Toei did with Saint Seiya Omega, but Omega had a semblance of plot, and even if everything was toned down to be kiddie friendly, it was a nice series... if you don't consider it a part of Saint Seiya. I don't hate all spin-off series, and in fact quite liked The Lost Canvas, and it was a pity the anime never finished for that. Still, the PV trailers got me hyped up for the anime made for the 40th anniversary of Saint Seiya. (I am not that old btw, my first intro to the Saint Seiya series was the Hades Chapter OVAs in 2002, and it snowballed from there.)

    Anyway, I went into the series, wary, but excited for change for the Gold Saints to get their spotlight...and got majorly disappointed. What were the script writers doing!? The pacing, the animation, practically anything that could go wrong in this anime did go wrong! For an anime made for the 40th anniversary of the franchise, not a lot of effort was put into it...



    Anyway, there was my long rant about how Toei ruined my very few expectations... I'm sorry for this large box of text...

    Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita.

    The ending could have been so much better. Seriously, a work order brought her back.... A work order would have been the nail in the coffin that sent me to the demon world.

    Log Horizon 2nd season.

    The animation quality dropped really bad.

    Also, Mekaku City Actor.

    I watch the PV series, turns out the anime wasn't that great, even in BD version. Does answer many questions, though.

    I know a lot of ppl are going to disagree with me when i say this but SAO was a bit of a disappointment to me its still a good series but ive seen better but i think the real problem was that i let the all the hype get to me and set my standards high for the series.

    Re: What anime (new or old) has disappointed you recently? Why?

    I've been disappointed with most anime in general since around 2007/2008. This was around the tipping point of anime going from being its own awesome end product to merely being a vehicle to push ranobe/manga/games/etc. for a short period of time. Rather than telling compelling stories with characters that end up meaning something to me they take 13 (or 12 or even 10) episodes, introduce a few characters, do nothing with them, and then it's over. Bokura Minna Kawaisou is one example of this. On paper it would seem like you have all of the ingredients needed for comedic gold, yet the end product was so forgettable I had to use Google to even remember the title.

    Nagato Yuki-chan no Yuutsu would be another example of modern wasted potential. From the Haruhi books and anime (Endless Eight bullshit aside, which is a separate rant) you have an established group of characters that all mean something to me, so picking up where my excitement left off and doing something new with them shouldn't be too difficult. You can say it's different, the problem is that it's about as interesting and exciting as watching jizz dry on your stomach.

    As anime has shifted from being an end product to an advertisement vehicle the amount of product produced each year as steadily increased, while those that are truly memorable and worthwhile have become fewer and farther between. The biggest disappoint has been the industry as a whole over the last 10 years.

    The anime showed this October are boring, so I skip this. I re-watch all anime that subbed or dubbed.

    Masou Gakuen HxH, or more specifically, HorribleSubs for being horrible enough to use a censored source that doesn't even have the decency to censor in a way that adds comedy. It had to air uncensored somewhere. Everything does.

    HorribleSubs no bakaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!
    Ignore This Signature
