    Most Disappointing Anime

    I searched for 'disappointing' and a lot of 'worst anime' threads came up, but that's not what I was going for. There are animes that I started watching or merely saw the first episode and was not impressed with and were total letdowns, so my question is: What anime were you most disappointed with?

    In my experience there are two that come to mind and those are...

    Ergo Proxy
    Blood+

    Only one that really comes to mind for me is Love Hina. Not to say this one was bad, I enjoyed it, but it could have been done much much better. The characters just seemed a bit hollow to me and the series could have been fleshed out a bit more.

    And having played the game first, Zone of the Enders was extremely difficult to take seriously. If they had kept it true to the dark nature of the game and made the plot a little more mature it probably could have been really good.

    I was disappointed with "Shura no Toki". It started off great, but it really went downhill with the last story arc (especially the last couple of episodes).

    EP disappointed me because at the time I was having a hard time finding a new anime to get into and it had been described as Blade Runner except with a female main character, so I actually purchased the first dvd and it never really hit my g-spot and for the fact that I had paid for the expensive dvd, I was doubly disappointed.

    I loved the Blood film, so I thought the series would be more of the same but it turned out to be more of a show for pre-teens. I wanted a much more adult-oriented story without the comedy nor the romantics.

    I just thought of another anime that really disappointed me. A friend of mine was a big fan of the game, so when the anime for Devil May Cry came out, he thought it was would be great, so I added it to my Netflix queue and it was actually on Long Wait for awhile before I received it. But what disappointed me the most about it was that the episodes had a formula much like an episode of Sailor Moon. Dante had started a bounty hunter service (of sorts) which was funny, but every episode was the same: he would get a case and then by the end he would kill a monster and save the day. I was hoping for something more random like Cowboy Bebop.

    I often heard good things about Azumanga Daioh, but I couldn't even finish the first episode. For some reason I felt not only sleepy (something common when I'm watching something and not enjoying it), I also was infuriated.

    I can't remember for the life of me how in the world an anime got me pissed, but it did. Guess it just wasn't my stuff.

    It started out okay, just slightly varying from the manga like most anime adaptations do which is fine. But after like the 6th episode it all starts going downhill with just random filler.

    But I'll read the manga over watching the anime any day of the week.

    Prince of Tennis. I'm probably the only person on this site who even actually watched it, but anyway. You all know how easy it is to end up hating the main character of an anime show with a passion, right? That's particularly easy in PoT, as the guy is much younger than the rest of the characters and doesn't lose once in the entire show (once, but hardly canon) - he actually squashes everyone including the last player he goes up against (obviously, billed as the strongest in Japan).

    The rest of the cast is pretty enjoyable, but when the show starts depending too much on the Mary Sue main character, it becomes a letdown. More so when he wins the last match of the show by 6-4 without breaking a sweat. -_-

    Geez i think i forgot the worst anime I ever watched. It was that bad. LOL. But one of the worst i've watched so far was Blood+. The anime was so confusing and there was so much useless unexplained back story to me. Samurai Pizza Cats. O.k. that was the worst fucking anime EVAH!!! I could not stand it! I couldn't watch 5 minutes of an episode with feeling nauseous. Definately something you do not want to watch when you are suicidal, homicidal or on your monthly.

    You should really post this kind of stuff in the [Hidden link. Register to see links.] thread. The Most Disappointing Anime thread is more for anime that you thought would be great and wasn't even close. I mean, how good did you think Samurai Pizza Cats was going to be, it's called Samurai Pizza Cats, for christ's sake.

    Haruhi. I watched the first couple of episodes and thought WTF? How is this anime so popular? What a load of crap.

    And Egro Proxy and Blood + were awsome imo. What did you find so disappointing about them?

    The Persona anime was a letdown tbh.. that was a proper mess.

    This.
    I dropped it after two episodes. The insane fan following still baffles me.

    lol @ this guy wanting someone else to justify disliking something in the same post he trollishly bashes something else that's popular without saying why he didn't like it.

    The Guyver remake.

    Elements of it were pretty good to watch... but it was a long, long way away from the gritty original.

    Disappointing...hm, disappointing...

    I would have to say Kimagure Orange Road(still don't get it to this day), Ninja Resurrection(after watching Ninja Scroll, expectations were high...plus, I think my personal beliefs played a part in its 'downfall'), and Ayane's High Kick(only because there aren't any more episodes of it, lol).

    Most others still haven't managed to disappoint me, but then again, I'm VERY picky about what I watch...guess I'm not much of an anime fan as you guys, huh?
    If I ever go on a hopeless quest against the Evil Overlord...

    20. If my girlfriend is in clear, imminent danger of becoming the next Sacrificial Virgin, I will at least suggest the obvious, even if it gets me slapped.

    27. Unless my name is Jackie Chan, I will not, after disabling three attackers, one with a pistol, one with a machine gun, and one with a stick, pick up the stick.
