There are many famous and critically praised anime series available today, but even the best of them can’t fully compensate for the crimes committed by some of the worst anime of all time. Like Hollywood movies on Netflix, the anime business frequently invests in projects that not only fail but also drag the medium to John Carter levels of disgrace. Poor anime dubs might blame mistranslations for their failures, but the horrible anime series below have only themselves to blame. Mars of Destruction, Boku no Pico, and Garzey’s Wing were planned, animated, and voiced without anyone associated with the process questioning whether they were making awful anime. Even the most despised anime characters can be certain that they are unlikely to appear under the worst anime ever produced. Someone would have to be in an anime that people enjoy viewing to appear on that list. Regrettably, these anime are not like the “worth viewing” variety especially if you have just completed an exhausting task at a company of website design in Malaysia.
- Abunai Sisters: Koko & Mika
Abunai Sisters: Koko & Mika is the lowest-rated anime on MyAnimeList, the worst fruit in this bag of bad apples, merging every awful idea ever introduced into anime to offer a sensation that is simply too awful to convey in words. The very worst objectives motivated this miniseries from the start, as it was created with the sole aim of encouraging two tabloid superstars. Even attempting to call this show a fanservice tool would be exaggerating its achievements. From a flimsy plot involving reality star spies to dreadful characters and graphics, it’s easy to see why this anime is the lowest-rated on MyAnimeList.
- Tenkuu Danzai Skelter+Heaven
Skelter+Heaven is an Idea Factory version of a computer game about strange aliens assaulting Earth, similar to Mars of Destruction. What distinguishes this one from the other? Mostly, it’s jarringly bad CGI. The 2D animation isn’t much better; sometimes, like in a Hanna-Barbera heroic cartoon, just the characters’ mouths move. For the next 19 minutes, hardly anything happens. Without giving anything away, all of this nothing is proved completely useless in the end.
- Psychic Wars
A malignant tumour is treated by a doctor, but it turns out to be a messenger from Japan’s history who predicts a demonic swarm. For whatever reason, this implies that the doctor must travel back in time to battle demons, which is something that doctors are well-versed in. From beginning to end, Psychic Wars is a confusing muddle. The voice acting is stiff and tired as if the actors were only half paying attention to getting paid. Psychic Wars also looks bad, to the point where it’s not even hilarious when the hero strikes a demon in the crotch.
Although fans have come to admire EX-ARM for being so horrible, the programme is even worse than first assumed, in a Tommy-Wisseau sort of manner. Fans began lambasting EX-ARM from the minute its first trailer emerged, even though it was notoriously awful and shamelessly promoted by Crunchyroll. Were animators hired, or was this anime created by cats pounding keys? Embarrassing fight sequences, shortened movements, genuine flaws, and unexpected zoom-ins are all part of the package.
