    Least Favorite Anime?

    Which anime do you dislike the most? No getting butthurt if someone names your favorite anime, you can have a debate about it over in Blue Heaven, but no shouting matches here.

    I'll start: Outlaw Star

    I know, I know, weak joke. For real though it's Ouran High Host Club or whatever the exact name is, I don't want to look it up to find out. My first serious gf (and my 2nd, now that I think about it) in early highschool was way into anime like I am, but for all the wrong reasons. She was one of those stereotypical yaoi-fanatic girls you see in college anime clubs these days. I vividly recall there being 2 guys who were twin brothers, yet still implied to be romantically involved. I guess guys like all this same stuff if you swap the characters out with females, but somehow it's less creepy? All the males in this show were twinks and I always thought if girls DID get off to this kind of thing, they would at least be buff Chads....but no, it's 20+ episodes of twinks flirting with each other. At least when my favorite Chinese cartoon girls kiss, they both look and act like girls the rest of the time. Why would a girl like gay highschool guys who look like women?

    She was SO into this shit and I was totally unprepared for things to get so awkward, that it somehow confused me really badly and it's probably a large part of why I'm so right-leaning to this day.

    I don't watch anywhere near enough anime to make any sort of meaningful comment on this topic, but even with my impossibly ignorant knowledge of animus I'm going to say Naruto anyway because of that one episode I saw with the talking dog, doing nothing but talk the entire time.
    "It turned out that the ghost was just Mr. Finley, who ran the amusement park. The spooky part is that, as soon as the ghost appeared, the teenagers' dog began to speak! And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    Holy damn Zemekis, did you go to the same high school I did? There was a girl who I dated whose friends were exactly like that. I even recall one of them wanted to show me this Gundam Wing yaoi fanfic she wrote.

    Anywho, getting on topic...this is kind of a tricky one. I guess the one that I recall having a distaste for was the Love Hina anime. I saw that way WAY back in the day and I only got through 4 episodes before I got tired of it. It just seemed to use the same gag over and over again. Guy either accidentally touches a girl's naughty area/have a misunderstanding, and girl overreacts and kicks the crap out of him. It was mildly amusing the first time but then they recycled that joke so many times that I just got bored and called it quits. It's also where I got my disdain for tsundere characters since I recall the lead female being a total bitch to the lead character and just in general being the type of person that no sane rational person would ever want to be around and then the show asks us to like this character and the lead is still smitten by her because he's a complete fucking idiot. I'll never understand why people like characters like that.

    King's Game.
    This is supposed to be a "horror" anime with a lot of gore, but it has no impact.
    The plot is...moronic. there is a "King" who sends out texts to a single class or high school students, and if they don't do what's in the text, they're punished, usually with a comically gruesome death. The main protagonist, Noboaki, was part of this in his old high school, and every other student in his class died a "gruesome" death, and he was the only one to survive.
    It sounded decently interesting, like a combination of Future Diara and Bokurano, but it's just terrible.
    The show focuses both on the current class and the older class, so no characters get any development, so when they die, there's no impact, and no reason to give a shit.
    But the worst part is the "King's Game" itself. I can suspend disbelief in an anime enough that a text from a phone can kill someone. Stupid, but sure.
    But the problems i have are threefold
    1) The characters are WAY to ok with dying. Most characters are trying to be written as "noble" for accepting death readily, but it's extremely unrealistic
    2) the "King" forces some kids to use dice to see who dies, but forces others to either have sex or die.
    Like...really? That's...just pathetic. We get it, you're edgy.
    3) the deaths are supposed to look gruesome, but they're so stupid and unrealistic.

    This anime is atrocious. It's trying to be edgy and snoopy, but it's plot is extremely childish, and the characters are some of the most genetic I've ever seen and get 0 development, so there's no reason to care about them.
    I didn't even finish it. I think I got to episode 5, and stopped. I looked it up online to remember the names, and looked up a synopsis of the final episode and laughed.
    The gang overpowers Natsuko and reach the summit, just as they get their next order to cut their body parts to make a human doll. Ryou offers to sacrifice first so Natsuko helps him cut his leg using a chainsaw. Seeing Ryou dead, Aya tries to strangle Natsuko but Natsuko just cuts her body off with her chainsaw. With only Nobuaki, Riona, and Natsuko remaining, they finally calm down to brainstorm how to end the game once and for all. They combine the one-letter texts from the dead classmates and finally discover the truth about the King's Game: It is, in fact, an apocalyptic virus-type of game that will never end unless every player dies. If there is a survivor the virus is carried on by them and the game will continue until all of humanity is destroyed. The King's Game let Nobuaki survive his first game despite saying he would be punished because it needed a carrier. Natsuko tries to kill Nobuaki by strangling him for confirming her suspicions of false hope, but Riona attacks her with the chainsaw and fatally wounds her. With Natsuko seemingly dead, Riona begins declaring her love for Nobuaki but, using the last of her breath, Natsuko kills Nobuaki with the chainsaw, claiming she loved him first and refusing to let Riona take him. In the afterlife, Nobuaki is reunited with Chiemi and his other dead friends, who had waited for him. As the only survivor, Riona drags Nobuaki's corpse to the beach and commits suicide by drowning herself with Nobuaki's dead body.

    In the epilogue, somewhere in Japan, a random student gets a text from the King, saying the King's Game has begun once again.


    Also, why, Starwind? Why mention that? I don't want to imagine that...Heero and like Duo together. Heero gets nervous and blows himself up.

    Honestly, I don't know how to respond to this because the only anime I have watched, I have enjoyed. If I don't think I will like something, I tend not to give it a chance. This means I am possibly missing out on some I would enjoy but at the same time, I know I am not wasting time.

    Tough one for me too. I didn't enjoy Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. It's just a great example of how you can't make a perfect adaptation of anything. That's why it's called an adaptation. I found it annoying, and I know I probably wouldn't have if I had read the manga instead. However, I wouldn't say it's my least favourite.

    Anime that feature a tsundere girl (complete bitch who makes a strong case for hitting girls, but turns good) and girls that sound like a group of cats taking a dip in an acid bath (more common with original Japanese audio) will usually fall under my "hated" category.

    You could argue that Aisha Clanclan is like that. She's initially bitchy, but it's different. She's actually funny. A lot of these tsundere girls are just annoying and not funny. Why do they always pop up in modern anime? (Particularly high school.) And why do many people like them? Kinda masochistic.

    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Is that even still going? If so, does it still make up the rules as it goes along?

    No idea, don't think I've seen or heard anything about it since the days of seeing it back in the early-mid 2000s. I just always remember seeing it and despising it. There are probably worse shows, but that one always stuck out to me.

    I remember Yu-Gi-Oh... I never got into it. I think that it was just not my ideal anime even growing up. I mean, I did enjoy Pokemon for a few seasons and Digimon, but this was something I never got into which is strange. I know a number of people who liked it though.
