Fall 2014 Anime Preview: The Worst

Now that Mushishi Zoku Shou S2 has FINALLY premiered, I can get on with my preview of the Fall 2014 anime season. I watched at least 10 minutes of the first episode of almost all of the series listed over at , and while some were QUITE a dissappointment–*cough*THESE*cough*–the season as a whole looks promising. Today I’ll look at the worst shows of the season; those I wouldn’t wish on any poor soul. I’m calling this as my first “click bait” post, since there’s more pictures than text. Don’t worry, the think pieces are just around the corner! Well, as “think piece” as anime reviews get.

Orenchi no Furo Jijou

Most 3-5 minutes series are fairly empty at their core, but Orenchi has to be the most pointless yet.

Ai Tenchi Muyo

Wouldn’t it be nice if this were an interesting and enticing new entry in the Tenchi Muyo franchise? Yes. Yes it would.

Ore, Twintail ni Narimasu

One of the goofier series of the season, Twintail may be unique but it’s obnoxious obsession with ‘twin tails’ gets old real fast.

Madan no ou to Vanadis

One of the MANY sword & shield fantasies of this season, and–like most of the others–easily forgettable and full of busty girls jumping around a lot.

World Trigger

I’m certainly not the first to say it, but this show has some AWFUL artwork that it’s throwing down, and the writing isn’t much better.

Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai

Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete

Donten ni Warau

These were the three shows most easily forgettable, to the point where I’m currently blanking on what any of them are. I think one of them has many young girls that like one boring guy, so they’re really aiming for the fences with these series. And don’t hold my feet to this one. I get that I’m not meeting my full journalistic potential here, but I’m just putting in as much effort as these creators did. Ice burn!

Girlfriend Beta

This one gets my “Worst of the Season” award, with one dimensional characters, on top of a harem framing. Even BAD shows are better than this droll.
