  • Blue Exorcist
  • Oreimo season 2 with the OVA's true route
  • Guilty Crown

I felt like we had a thread on this before. I'm checking right now. It seems like there is no thread. The AV search engine is funky and sensitive.

Guilty Crown. The plot holes are two big in part two.

For a long while, Bleach was pretty bad.

I'm putting down Fairy Tail. I know it's a bit weird. I'm a fan of the show, but the filler arcs and the tournament arc wasn't that great. I hope the series has another chance to finish once the manga is done.

@nishi99:

I only loved the first season. It's hard to recommend the show. All I can say is that you will hate the majority of the cast, and I tell them to stop at the end of season 1. Season 2 was crappy.

I forgot Sword Art Online. It's an overrated series.

DBZ should have ended with the Cell Saga. It went downhill after Majin Buu.

@takashichea: Yeah Guilty Crown got really bad with part two. For instance Gai coming back out of nowhere somehow with no explanations. Meanwhile the bad guys can't bring back Mana without killing Inori. Yep Sword Art Online is even worse with the overpowered hero who gets every girl he meets.

Well lets see what I remember...

  • Hell Girl (After Season 1. Even though there've been at least two new correspondence members, it's been almost the same thing every episode and not much switch-arounds like the Shibata Arc.)
  • Shikabane Hime / Corpse Princess (That ending. :[ )
  • Fantasista Doll (Fell off after a short while.)
  • Bleach (There's been longer shows, but the stories on both the anime and manga have draaaaaaaged oooooooooon in a rather bad fashion.)
  • Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (Season 2 really damaged things for me.)
  • Eureka Seven AO (Fell off after a few episodes in)
  • Venus vs. Virus (Once again, that ending. [And it was fun too :( ] )

Chrome Shelled Regios( Good start but was trash after like halfway through)

Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Bride( Season 1 was much better)

Clannad( Second season was boring and severely overrated)

Sword Art Online ( Same with above)

GT was bad.

Well I think it was fine, they ended in Uub but now with BoG it went bad...you ask why? Well this is my points to why BoG was bad (it was good a movie but I will explain why it was bad to the plot)

  • Gohan was named the strongest non fused character end of series, this means he is the strongest to the point where they meet Uub where the series actually ends.
  • Battle of Gods takes place before Uub and we see Birusu, Wiss and SSJG Goku who are stronger than Gohan who is stated to be the strongest till EoS.
  • Battle of Gods should had been made after Uub not before it.
  • It was disrespectful to what they did to Gohan, especially giving Goku SSJG. I think Gohan would had done a better job as SSJG seeing he could also mop the floor with SSJ3 Goku. He would be Mystical God Saiyan Gohan! with red and blue aura.
  • If BoG was made after Uub, we could had see adult Gotenkusu! and who does not want to see that! It would also made more sense to the plot....we would also see a trained Uub in action.

Those are my point to why it was bad making BoG before Uub

@nishi99:

Agreed. They shouldn't kill off Gai too early.

@DBZ_universe:

I didn't read your comments since I haven't watch Battle of Gods movie. I'm waiting for the official English dub. I hate the subbed version of Dragon Ball Z because Goku's voice is annoying high pitched. That's just me. I grew up with the FUNimation dub of Dragon Ball Z.

@takashichea: My comment has no spoilers at all and anyone who has not watched the movie will understand my points.

@takashichea: well others would say that is how the author attended him to sound like but like not open a can of worms with Dubs vs Subs shall we

@DBZ_universe: I have not watch the movie yet........

@SMXLR8:

No, I'm NOT starting that debate. Do you like DBZ subbed or dubbed?

To get on topic, I'm adding Rosario Vampire anime. Season 1 was decent, but season 2 was veering off the manga and replace everything with fan service and crap.

Edit:

Meant to say not

DBZ should have ended at Frieza saga in my opinion. Would have made sense considering it revealed Goku's origins and things would have been a bigger deal like the SSJ transformation (seeing more Saiyan characters turn into it cheapened it) and ended with Goku's death (instead of the half-assed way he managed to survive Namek's explosion)

@takashichea: LOL for me dubs since I saw it first

Post by Mutant_God (226 posts) See mini bio Level 14

I heard DBGT was not canon since it was made by a fan

For me the ending of the 3rd season and entire 4th season of Yu Yu Hakusho was a bit weird and had a hard time following the last season of Rurouni Kenshin
