I like hentai. Some of it at least. Especially the classics like Cream Lemon.
A lot of normal anime is much worse than that.

When people say “hentai” they mean Cool Devices or some other evil crap. Cream Lemon was almost mainstream, eventually removing all the H as it morphed into other series.

Ah, yes ! Sorry !
Then I should say, "Nadesico" is one of my "not favorite" anime.

Yeah, counting hentai isn't fair, they work with much smaller budgets than mainstream anime and thus will very, VERY often look awful. (note to self : start a HD hentai company if I ever win the lottery)

On a more serious note, I couldn't get over the level of BS of Sabagebu and the level of German fetish of Tanya the Evil.

OK just found this by accident, I guess I'm not as much of an Otaku as I thought.

It was mentioned in another topic about getting a good playing copy.

From the clips I've found on Youtube I feel that this is possibly the worst anime I've ever seen, but I really need to get a copy now.
There is one on ebay for 150 but a possible rotter is not worth the risk.

I wonder what the anime equivalent of Clutch Cargo is? Or could anime get that wretched?

Just be patient on yahoo-oku, I'm sure you'll pay less than that.

worst anime I've ever seen? To me it's anything made after about 1994. To me anime ended with Evangelion.

just sat through the MAIDEN JAPAN BRD release of ToHeart 2 that was part of my own SENTAI FILMWORKS BLACK FRIDAY sale order ,
and, despite being a major fan of the characters themselves, at least the way they look, -

- except for "Multi" of ToHeart 1, which is simply one of the greatest "Little Girl" characters in all of Anime, IMO -

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi_(To_Heart)

- i'd have to say that TH2 fits squarely into "Worst Anime i've Ever Seen" territory.
indeed, it was a great disappointment, with abysmal animation throughout, awful character relations, and a total F@$k it ending.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/To_Heart

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/To_Heart_2

TH1 was hardly perfect, but it looked and played out WAY better than TH2. further, there was Multi-chan's arc, which made up for it all.

all in all, TH2 is most assuredly NOT recommended, even to a ToHeart fan.

anyhow, me and my sister chose "Princess Tutu" next. Charmingly Quirky,
with some hilarious-sounding VA work for the main character in Japanese.

all in all, a pretty fine tonic so far, for washing the aggressively lackluster taste of TH2 out...

In that both are a little too easy, I agree. :)

Most TV animation from the 50s and 60s was terrible, US and Japan. When Tezuka basically invented anime his main efforts were based around finding the best ways to economize, and similar even cheaper less artist-requisite methods were championed by Filmation. Anime got good though and Filmation never really did, but at one point in history it was just too expensive to do any decent animation for TV unless you were doing an ad for some rich corporation.

Filmation would eventually build up such a library of references and recyclable cuts that they could basically make an entire new show with only one guy in the company who could even draw. He just had to draw a hat on that dude who’s frames were all rotoscoped 7 years earlier and voila, a new Lone Ranger show!

When you talk to people who have worked at Filmation is like it’s evenly divided between people who respected the founder for giving them a break and those that’s think he’s a petty cheap jerk who never got any respect for his work because he had no respect for artists and the product can’t be good in that situation.

I do find it funny that people call Filmation "cheap" when their stuff was actually the most expensive to produce on the account of doing everything in-house rather than outsourcing it to some east-Asian sweatshops.

Yeah, but the sweat shops did way better work. That’s the thing Lou never pointed out. Orbots or one of those DIC/NHK sorta combo efforts compared to like...He-Man or Giligan’s Planet...there’s no contest. It’s like comparing Star Wars to Star Crash.

To be fair, comparing anything to Orbots would be like comparing a schoolboy to John Holmes.

A lot of cartoons back in the day had amazing, well-animated intros, like Thundercats or MASK, while the rest of the episode was never quite up to that level, but Orbots was like the sole exception; OVA-quality animation throughout, you just didn't get that anywhere else. It was directed by Osamu Dezaki as well.

When Orbots came out I was stunned. STUNNED. The animation seemed complex perfect and dynamic all to the point of mania. I agree. It still kills almost any TV anime even now in many ways. I think the yen/dollar exchange rate alone may have made that same production impossible even a year or two later.

So I’ll just substitute The Littles.

EDIT: there are some shows where the intro AND just the first episode are super high quality with things getting more cost reduced later. The Dirty Pair is one, also Cobra I think but it’s been ages since I’ve seen it. There are some shows where that first episode is a pilot and there will be things different about it than the rest of the series, such as Inspector Gadget having a mustache in EP1.

I'm more stunned that Tonka sued them over it, claiming it was plagiarizing Gobots(!).

With Space Adventure Cobra it was more the storyline. The first half of the series was GREAT, but when Crystal Boy was defeated and the entire Jane story was finished
I feel they were filling in for either a way to import the show or who knows what.

Very sad.

I vaguely recall something about plans to show Cobra on the Playboy channel(!) back in the day.
