2014 had some excellent anime specimens to be sure! All that listed with the Beloved Anime of 2014 which covered my pleasant adventures in aniblogging. Though honestly it is time that really give out a list of the most terrible anime of 2014 which accounts for my misadventures in anime. While it pains me to do so. I really want to be frank about how these anime did not give promising returns once watched. Sadly.
Honestly this anime was the worst merely because I was totally in love with it. I was pretty excited from the beginning about this series to which I did a First Look. It was Studio Arms animation, after all!
I was also pretty active on forums during the time it simulcasted/aired. And my favorite pairing in the series was Neko and Ryota who were the main lead characters.
Still for some reason or other the last two episodes took a turn for the vast unbelievable. If that was not the worst I had to handle that the conclusion solved nothing, so basically all that I had watched served no purpose. Talk about returning to square one. I think the anime pissed me off mostly since after watching I could tell it held a very bad closure to the series. Leaving one feeling like they invested all this time for nothing especially since I had to put up with a character within the anime, Kazumi, who was lets just say utterly annoying. She was almost as annoying as Shimotsuki from Psycho-Pass 2.
Frankly, I understood nothing throughout the time spent watching. Nothing! Such a shame since the animation was beautiful. Not as good as the Free! anime or Guilty Crown but certainly better than the average animation quality.
#3 Black Bullet
The story pacing and the storyline in general proved pretty boring. Surprisingly the only two good things there was with the series is Yuki Kaji’s voice acting and the smooth flawless animation. But beautiful animation and a high voice acting level doesn’t a great or good series make with regards to anime.
*Note: I actually watched all these anime series completely. Now I wonder how I ever did it. Yet, I did!*
Overall happy that there were very few anime that were not palatable. I mean honestly I only ever want to encounter good anime and not ones that leave a bitter aftertaste. So considering 2014 only held a small number of bad anime (3) that I came across. I consider this a victory. And hopefully this serves as a warning to some of you in connection to these anime. Watch at your own risk!
