Bottom Five Disliked Animes of 2014

NUMBER 3

MAHOU SENSOU

Mahou SensouMahou Sensou was supposed to be an action series based in magic battles. Instead we have a school anime with a super boring love triangle and, Gilgamesh’s long lost brother and a teleport spell that has to be executed inside a stopped car for style points. It is badly written to the point that I had to search on the wikia to actually understand the “Ancestral Magic against other mages in The Living World”. Call me dumb, but the way it works IS quite stupid.Mahou_Sensou It is also very, very, VERY predictble. From the beginning we can see that the realationship with Isoshima is fake, the old owner of his sword and the role of his family members in the story.mahou-sensou-ep1As I said before, the premise can be interesting, but bad execution really takes me off. Good action scenes are not enough to keep an anime interesting, and I sure didn’t find anything else for me in this series.

  1. Daimidaler has to be one of the most disgusting anime I’ve seen in my life, so I don’t even want to think about how bad that number one must be to beat it.

    I cannot agree with Twintails though. I may have a weak spot for Symphogear/Vividred type series, but it had an original premise, it wasn’t unbearably boring and didn’t make me hate the characters. It was better than Rurumo. And Blade and Soul. And Madan no Ou. And Chaika. And Wixoss. And World Trigger. And the dozens of card game adaptations for children, forgettable harems and fujoshi fodder (like Bakumatsu Rock or Dramatical Murder).

    Seriously, with so much crap out there, I think a series has to be particularly vile to make it into a top 5.

    • To be fair, I wanted to like Twintail. It has such a weird plot that I wanted to find it funny. But I just didn’t. As a comedy, I think that was very troublesome, but again, it may be that I just didn’t get it, it has happened before.
      I don’t recommend people to avoid the series I put on this list exactly because of that, I think it is possible for others to like even the one I put at the very bottom of them, and I am not even calling it bad taste, just difference.
      BTW, something important that I didn’t say is that I did not watch all the animes of the year and I don’t judge the ones I didn’t, so there may be some worse even for me that I just did not watch. I admit that I avoided some on purpose for how bad I believed they would end up being.

      Thank you for the feedback!

  2. This list IMO is the harder one to make, my way of thinking is that ” If its bad, just forget it.” so to be so bad you still remember it, it must be exceptional horrible, but somehow still make you watch it enough to actually recalled what a waste of time it was. For me. exclude all the craps cobrettini already helpfully pointed out, i want to add in horrible adaptations as well, and that means Brunhilde in the darkness,Tokyo Ghoul, and Break Blade.
    I really want to like Twintails and the first half of it was fun, but the later half saw a sharp drop down both from visual and story, its like after DragonGildy, they has no idea what to do with the next boss, it reminded me uncomfortably to Samurai Flamenco, another show that jumps between genre and plot like a drugged up rabbit. Still, i wouldn’t put it among Worst 5.
    Using ero power isn’t new, but Dakara Boku wa H ga dekinai done it in much more tasteful way, at least that didnt make me feel ashame of myself while watching it, though i never realized that Damidaler’s mech was a homage/throwback/whatever of masturbation.
    My list would have included Glasslip, and special mention to Persona 4 Golden Animation, the anime itself isnt bad, but the sheer shamelessly level of milking behind it is.

    • It sure is harder… even more when I had to watch more of some to be able to write about it. Brynhildr (I think), besides having the most obnoxious name I ever had to write, didn’t hurt me much since I didn’t know the original source. The later half of it did get me very, VERY, disappointed. Tokyo Ghoul too, I watched before reading. Good idea, I even liked it before I ended up getting the manga. Then, I did not like the anime much anymore…
      The other series you talk about, I kinda avoided from the start. And, somehow, I still watched the damn Lady in the Water mech anime…

      Thank you for the feedback

  3. Um I’m sorry if its a joke and I couldn’t understand it, but shouldn’t it be “Bottom Five Disliked Anime of 2014” instead of 2015?

  4. I quite enjoyed watching Daimidaler. It was campy all the way, and it even managed to make me think a little bit about the issues behind all the silliness. It goes under satire in my book.

    I agree with number 1 though. ImoCho was utterly vile and unredeemable. The only part that was remotely enjoyable was the ED, which tells the charming story of how Hiyori got hit by a truck.
