A cocktail of boring, dull and more boring. Not what I'd expect from a futuristic cop show with power suit battles.
An anime that is all about panty shots, and some half baked attempt at a spy thriller type of plot. I'm not joking about the panty shots. No anime will ever top Agent Aika in this category.
A decent attempt at being a touching romance with a touch of magic. It doesn't pull it off very well. You'll want to skip this unless specifically seeking this kind of title out because there's a lot to overlook.
A secret organization that rules the world through their shadow armor (ninja mecha suits). A guy ends up in his sister's body. Wait, where is this going? Yeah I have no clue either.
Possibly intended as a heap of fan service. It's also pretty dumb. All that along with the main heroin being extremely annoying, manages to make this one a total waste of time.
Could have been a cute show about young girls playing in a band, but reflecting Japan's knack for going too far in directions that don't need to be explored, ends up using them for fan service.
Somewhere everything is going right, but people are still unhappy about it. Really? That's about all I got out of this one. It's a linear cop show that is strangely boring considering it's an action sci-fi show.
Big Order? Do want fries with that? For a limited time, I can supersize the apocalypse.
Starts like it could be a good sci-fi horror show, but degrades in plot quality as time goes on with a pretty poor finish.
A strait forward action anime so caught up in shooting holes in everything and busting down doors, it forgot the search warrant and that there's supposed to be a point.
Generic. Dull. Even with parts in Osaka as a backdrop it's dull. And it takes real effort to be boring in Osaka.
If you haven't seen a girl break a katana in two with her butt cheeks, you haven't truly experienced anime. Honestly it's not very good, but lets face it - you're watching it for the concept.
An "extreme" anime comedy so wrong it's just... wrong. Will probably offend most people, and disturb those who somehow find it funny (I'm the latter).
Some things are beyond redemption no matter how much help you have.
An anime about anime characters dressing up like other anime characters. Fairly bad, but might be interesting to those who like to catch references to other (better) series.
Hard to follow, abstract would be an understatement. Didn't impress me, but still memorable for the missile deflection using a knife. Sometimes it's strange what you remember a title for.
Really bland. Mildly interesting main character, but overall fell flat. Had potential in the first episode with all the talk about a girl forced to make homemade pudding, but goes down hill from there.
Cool franchise made into an anime which is anticlimactic and uninteresting. Dante kills demons, but doesn't struggle much aside from wrestling with the dull plot.
Bolt Crank is a guy who spends each episode watching events as a bystander while eating various metal parts as a snack. Where all that metal comes out is pretty weird. I wasn't very hip on this series. It just wasn't engaging.
Simplifying the idea of El Hazard, turns this into a dull story about a guy transported to a magical world. Done many many times elsewhere and better.
Iczers are warriors from outer space that like to obtain school girls named Nagisa to power their prized giant robots. This turns out to be convenient as the Earth is being invaded and we could use a good giant robot to repel the bad aliens. Disjointed and hard to follow, this one is tough to recommend.
Flame of Recca is a martial arts type fighting anime with super powers. I'll be honest, I didn't get very far into this series because I found it that boring.
Imagine a cybernetic Planet of the Apes done as an anime with 80s hair. Whatever you're thinking, it's not as cheesy as this one gets.
Very low budget, incomplete, but has its moments for one of those "priest who inadvertently travels with magic wielding slave girl" type of stories. I still think a remake done right of this show could be really good.
Might have worked if it had stuck to the premise of a guy who's allergic to girls on a planet of women. Instead it's just another dumb harem title. Still may appeal to costume fetishists. It's weak, but does have some fun with its concept.
Doesn't have the interesting action / music of the first film, nor does it have what makes the franchise interesting (in manga and TV series). Kind of hard to screw up a show based on excessive sex and violence.. and yet...
Pointless fan service anime. Nothing to see here. Move along.
Looks interesting from an old school setup, but gets lost doing... whatever it's trying to do.
When the best an anime can come up with to keep the robot maid genre fresh is to miniturize the girl, you know there's going to be problems. Totally bland and better to skip.
Harlock franchise merged with the classical opera title "Das Rheingold" by Richard Wagner. On paper that sounds great, but the plot did not work well with the characters. Makes little sense and the result is boring.
This is one anime that will have you dreading panty shots. That bulge...
Please tell me this isn't the girl count of this harem.
Fusion between fantasy land, and Japan. Some cool ideas, and one fun character, but mostly comes down to typical harem antics.
Nagisa was an annoyance in the Iczer franchise. You'd think making her an aspiring pro wrestler would iron that out. I guess it just wouldn't be the Iczer franchise if that were true. This time around girls end up with Iczer like power suits. Kind of "meh" aside from the irritating main character.
Quirky premise that isn't used well, leaving it to the usual harem stuff. Silly and amusing sometimes, but has a poor ending. Flag broken, over and out.
Take one of the greats of Chinese Literature, then turn it into a dumb fan service laden martial arts anime. What you would expect if Street Fighter were all about panties.
Pandering to anime fans has finally resulted in this: a totally unoriginal harem anime where girls fight over one guy, with a bunch of giant robots flying around and no logic supporting any of it.
This concept goes back to 50's era monster sci-fi. Been done, and done better than here. Some interesting sci-fi technology, but better to skip this one.
A mix of high school, action sci-fi featuring a protagonist with nearly god like super powers. No amount of fibre can make this one regular enough to watch.
An anime that's much like watching someone else play an RPG. Yes, it's that boring.
Stuff you've seen before done better, but this time with far more annoying characters.
Typical story of boy gets hit by a spaceship, turned into a girl, then the two girls interested in him wonder if they're okay being lesbians.
One of the more controversial titles in anime. The uncut version sports excessive intense violence, and a lot of sex. The cut version removes the sex, but then doesn't make much sense. Either way it came off as pretty soulless.
The original Kite had been pretty polarizing with different camps liking and hating it. This version doesn't have anything to do with the original, and is more a spiritual successor. It does manage to unite both camps to agree this one sucks.
Better left un-found
Slice of life comedy that is hit and miss... and miss and miss.
Generic name for a generic show. Has potential but doesn't do much with any of it, and mostly messes up what it has.
As another one of those magical girlfriend shows, this one comes off as being completely uninspired. It's cute at times with magical hijinks, but missing enchantment in its story.
Colossally stupid most of the way through, with astounding ending that is crazy and totally evil (but kinda fascinating). Unexpected, but not it's worth watching just for that.
Like the TV series but on fan service overload. Only covers a side story in the middle of the plot, so akward to watch for those unfamiliar with the series. Maze is kind of a sweetheart, everyone else is annoying.
If Baywatch were an anime, this is what it would be. Basically a bunch of anime girls running around. I think there was a point to all that. Sometimes they fight too.
The concept of "problem solving team" taken from the movie (Mezzo Forte), turned into a generic boring pile of... something.
Anime take on the superhero genre. Mixed results, but I'm not really hip on the superhero genre to begin with.
Filler in the first half, transitioning to tragedy in the second, but then deciding to go back to filler at the end. Skip this one.
How to improve on the first weak series of Nagima? Retell the story and add punctuation marks. Oddly enough, it doesn't work?!
The Cutey Honey franchise gets by with nastalgia and cuteness. While it has decent production quality, this incarnation is a little too dark and leering with fan service to pull it off.
A show which doesn't know what it wants to be. Martial arts action? Comedy? How does a giant frog vs giant robot battle even fit into a ninja show? With no ending, it doesn't matter.
I'm not sure if this was based off the arcade or (8bit) NES game. Either way it was about as dumb as you'd expect from a ninja fighting a demons story.
Things you've seen before done better elsewhere. It fails in execution, but might be okay if you want the usual anime romance thing.
Choose: 1) watch an anime which fails to utilize it's concept. 2) go eat oreos. Mmm... Oreos.
Loses nearly all the fun and charm of the Nuku OVA, with uninspired story. A big disappointment considering it merges two concepts the Japanese should excel at: robot girls and catgirls. Maybe they should have turned her into a maid.
Sister stuff, with the worst sister character ever. Yeah, it's bad.
Seems like a fun adventure in cross dressing, but instead is more typical of an all girls school anime. Not a strong one at that, but I liked it all the same.
A good concept with a macabre sense of humor, but heavily gimped due to the lack of (non serious) violence. So many titles could vastly improve by inserting a princess wielding a bloody chainsaw, which makes it a bit mysterious how this one ends up so dull.
Could almost seem charming if it weren't a carbon copy of Oh! My Goddess which did it better. The story is dropped in the middle, so it doesn't go anywhere.
I'm guessing the Japanese may think the title is cooler than it sounds in English. This one spins it's wheels and goes nowhere.
Emeraldas s the brooding mysterious woman from the Harlock franchise. By the end of this, she'll still be brooding and mysterious, but kicked the ass of everyone who pissed her off. As a Harlock fan, I wasn't taken with this series.
The only thing this title has going for it is that it was based off a CLAMP manga. If you've never heard of it, you're not missing anything. Not interesting. Bad plot.
Disjointed, and intended for Sakura Wars fans familiar with the franchise. Nothing is explained about the story, which must be complex considering no references here make sense.
An anime that basically substitutes Pokemon with big chested women. In all fairness, I'd rather collect buxom females than pocket monsters myself.
Twelve girls with different stories, and twelve opportunities to make something cute but instead tends to be a snooze fest. I always enjoyed nap time, so perhaps it's unintentionally a sentimental journey.
Tired and going through the motions of every fantasy "academy" anime.
Imported due to animation featured in Mathew Sweet's video Girlfriend (seriously cool video, look it up). Old school, linear plot, main character that's hard to like. Does have funky music and cool animation though.
A two part OVA. The first is absolutely terrible. The second had potential to become a better show, but is too sleazy to pull it off.
Counter to expectations having "panic" in the title, this one is usually REALLY boring. Girl on girl without much action.
One guy is an ass, one pouts all the time. Not the kind of duo I'd prefer leading an occult show.
Tenchi can't fit any more women in his house so he moves to Tokyo so he can collect a few more. A new love interest appears and despite being a normal girl, she introduces some interesting situations. The rest of the series doesn't fair so well...
Good name for an anime, but too trashy and bland to live up to it.
It's like every harem anime ever made stuffed into one anime.
A really dated sci-fi film with an interesting idea and story that can't be told well within a movie's time constraints. Devolves into a disaster movie at times, and hard to relate to the characters, but possibly worth watching for classic anime sci-fi fans.
Interesting sci-fi anime from outward appearances, but too cliche, and generic with annoying characters and long winded speeches. Not completely terrible, but not very good. Features some hilariously sexist dialog though!
Two women fight in a contest for big prizes, but have to dress in sexy waitress outfits, and the loser has to strip. Not a very good title, certainly not classy, but I still think this concept has possibilities.
Jailbait: the animation. Surprisingly no where near as sleazy as you might expect, but unfortunately about as dumb as you might expect. It's oddly cute sometimes though.
Lacking flaver, this one has nothing going for it. And seriously, what's up with the name "Voogie"?
Take a bunch of annoying girls and shoot them into space. This approach could fix so many anime titles, but the problem here is that even in space they don't go away.
When you make an anime about an idol becoming a pro-wrestler, intelligence is obviously not invited. While low budget and poorly done, it has some good points too. Currently the anime I'd most like to see redone (properly).
Wedding Peach is one of those magical girl shows that really only the Japanese would have the guts to make. If you ever want to make militant feminists puke up blood, show them wedding peach and you'll get results.
Somewhat notorious due to the incest topic. Okay in parts. Tacky in parts. Suspenseful if you wonder when the brother / sister thing will finally going to go too far. And yes it really does.
Great background, ignored in favor of showing girls eating. A really strange way to screw up a fantasy anime.
