The filler episodes from Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water. Notably episodes 23-26 and 32-34. Absolutely horrible, offensive pieces of junk that ultimately stain an otherwise great series. I regret ever having watched them back then, and I still do.

M.D. Geist gets my title for the most dangerous Anime. It's really that bad.

For the record I also dislike Ninja Scroll and Wicked City -- I find both too distractingly violent and gory to be of any entertainment value. Both are misogynistic in their undertones as well.

Sadly there is so much anime that is misogynistic and gory that it's hard to even list them as negative aspects of a thing...I mean, when the precise nature of the vice determines its genre it's...operating on its own very low level.

The gore in Megazone 23 looks more stupid and out of of place every day. I really wish they had held back on that aspect of the thing.

I watched The Island Episodes twice. They only stand out because of how they tarnish what would be a perfect 26 episode series. While not good at all, Dragon Ball Z has done worse to us times 10 when it comes to just...occupying running time as a philosophy.

I agree. I bought the entire set on DVD and watched each episode. The last episode was the pits.

I sold the entire set as I did not feel that the series was worth keeping.

Not technically anime, however was animated.....

Ralph Bakshi's "STREETFIGHT"
Too painful to watch after a very short amount of time........

His other roto-scope works are top notch in my book ! ie: WIZARDS, LORD OF THE RINGS, AMERICAN POP, & FIRE AND ICE........

Aologies for off topic references.....

Cheers to the members

I loved End of Evangelion.

I'd like to quote from a movie:

it's mainly just Anno who remade it and they still need to do the last one. Also Gainax doesn't have any more involvement with it. It's now pretty much controlled by Anno's studio Kara or Khara.

I stand corrected. I honestly never cared for this series whatsoever and I kinda see it as a turning point for the worse for Gainax so I never bothered to pick up that kind of understanding.

The first episodes of Eva are still animation legend as far as I'm concerned. However Eva was the end of Anime for me. Everything after basically sucked. It was an epoch making event that signalled a turning point. Anime ended somewhere between episode 1 and 28 of Eva.

I agree that anime for Eva was a low point for the genre. For me, the first few episodes were interesting. After that, the story became formulaiic with each episode a rehash of the same plot. Of the anime that I have kept over the years on DVD, Eva just did not cut it.for me. I only have Moldiver on LD and I have yet to watch the whole series.. I did watch disc 1 and found it worth further viewing.

Again, Eva was okay until the last episode when the plot fell apart leaving me wondering: What did I just see?

i've always seen EVANGELION as the great downturn point in Anime Mecha design.

after that series, it seemed like EVERYTHING suddenly had to be lanky and often quasi-organic in overall design motif, with rare occasional exception.

perhaps, had the Doe-eyed cuties not come out in force around that time, i too might have left Anime behind around the time Mecha design hit the can.

fortunately, for me at least, hormones hit around that time, and the torrent of charming bubble-eyed sweeties poured out in the interim have reasonably made up for the want of decent Mecha.

as such, though i'm an older fan, i've managed to remain a dedicated one to this day, though i'll still that freely admits that Anime certainly isn't what it used to be, for better as well as for worse...

It's true. There have been few "great" mecha since Eva. Gaogaigar is one...having a hard time coming up with another...

I'm more concerned with seeing children tortured and killed and mutilated in a way that would make Tomino cry. I guess when you are that age you notice it less but I was 22 or so when the show started and, watching off-air VHS copies with all the Sega Saturn ads still in them, I stopped watching half way through just because it made me physically ill.

And yes, the robots sucked. They suck so bad. Dumbest suckiest robots ever. Bleeding all over the place, plugged into an outlet, only made useful by a plot device...God they suck.

WOW all the bashing on Eva, I'm sort of happy I have never actually seen it.

Being older but not old enough for Battle of the Planets, I prefer older anime, any older anime is fine with me.
I guess the threshold is around 1993 is when I draw the line, its really hit or miss. But I do like GITS.
Has more of that early sci-fi feel in both style and story.

Now I'm starting to feel really weird.
I can't be the only person on earth that has liked Evangelion.
Or maybe I am an autistic oddball.
Might explain why I still like my LD's so much.

Its my favorite franchise but not my favorite show of all time. Asuka is my favorite character. I also have a ton of stuff. it resonated with me maybe because I'm autistic and felt like my inner feelings were being portrayed. I must admit I care less about Mecha shows even though I watch a handful of them like Full Metal Panic! which has great characters and good plots.

Eva was the most popular show for 20 years. There aren't enough autistic people in the world to build that many gross "Rei in bandages, so erotic..." garage kits. You're weird for NOT liking it.

Btw, the mecha in Full Metal Panic are like rental cars. Occasionally realistic but not very cool or exciting. Try Gunbuster, MADOX, Macross, Gundam, etc. Something with some GUTS dammit. Eva is headache anime, not mecha anime.

Eva was just the last show to have the same level of passion and almost unecessary detail that the 80s shows had. I mean the mundane details of everyday things like the interior of Asuka's car, the "SDAT" walkman Shinji has, Asuka's kitchen with the fridge and retractable beer rack. Just perfection and the essence of anime to me. I mean I watch a show like Maison Ikkoku and the interiors in that are so nostalgic. I lived in places EXACTLY like that. I actually used the station depicted in the show daily and it's rendered beautifully. Eva had that level of realistic daily life detail.

Then there's the mecha. Sure not to everyone's taste, but ORIGINAL and cool imo. Sentai inspired but beautifully over designed in a Gainax kinda way.

Then there's the graphics, the fonts, everything. Everything is DESIGNED. Not just incidental. The whole look of the show is phenomenal.

Sure the story fell down at the end and it was like WTF? But yeah, like I said anime ended sometime during Eva. Then again I consider Macross II the end of Macross and don't subscribe to the Kawamori-verse. A viewpoint that's had me banned from Macrossworld.com
