HelloBucket's Anime

Will not finish Rating Comment
91 Days (TV) Weak Weak production values and uneven storytelling undermine the atmosphere entirely. Composed almost exclusively of homages and allusions, yet sadly not a parody as one might expect from that.
Alice or Alice (TV)
Aooni The Blue Monster (TV)
Assassination Classroom (TV) Weak The series leans heavily on you enjoying Koro-sensei's responses to assassination attempts but sadly I did not.
(The) Asterisk War: The Academy City on the Water (TV 2) Weak Throws away the biggest saving grace of the first season: interesting action sequences. In its place, we find poorly executed attempts at intrigue.
BBK/BRNK (TV) Weak Weak characters and weak action sequences let the series down after strong world building and backstory in the first episode.
Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage (TV)
Bungo Stray Dogs (TV) Weak I'm not sure what this series was attempting to accomplish and I don't think it did either. Not really funny. Not really exciting. No real mystery. Plus, only 4 episodes in and it can't stop repeating itself.
Caligula (TV)
Castle Town Dandelion (TV) Weak The multiple sketches in each episode all have a poor ratio of actual ideas to run time.
Chaos Dragon (TV) Awful Somehow I made it through the first few episodes without hating this but after the devices in place to keep the story on track became more and more ridiculous I had to give it up.
Cheating Craft (TV) Weak The SNL of anime - a series of parodies that all run on for longer than they ought to.
Classroom Crisis (TV) Weak Dreadfully boring. I am unsure what was supposed to hold my interest in this show but I didn't see it.
Dances with the Dragons (TV)
Dies irae (TV)
Drifters (TV)
Etotama (TV) Weak I loved the 3D action sequences at first. Sadly, they started to become extensions of the humor as the show went on and very few of the jokes on this show really landed with me.
Fighting Spirit (TV)
Gangsta. (TV) Weak Sex! Drugs! Murder! All somehow made incredibly dull. I accidentally skipped ahead 4 episodes and didn't even notice until after I was done watching the episode. Also, the hand snapping as background music could have stopped at any time... but it didn't.
Girls Beyond the Wasteland (TV) Weak Characters are too flat and the storytelling too bland to keep interest. A shame, because the core setup of people collaborating on a project all for the own reasons that don't exactly align with the goal of said project is good.
Girls Bravo (TV) Weak My memory on this one is hazy, but I seem to recall dropping it for being unfunny and the characters infuriating me with how easy they're going on such a rapey antagonist.
God Eater (TV) Weak A gorgeous show, but also very dumb and some really poor planning/direction on the action sequences.
Hacka Doll the Animation (TV) Weak A terrible sense of comedic timing drags this down below the mediocrity it aspired to.
Hitori No Shita The Outcast 2 (Raten Taisho Chapter) (TV)
Izetta: The Last Witch (TV) Weak Fabulous score and great production values, but atrocious writing full of tedious narrative contrivances, sins against comedy, ineffective emotional ploys, and plenty of ill-advised nudity.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders Battle in Egypt Arc (TV)
Katana Maidens: Toji no Miko (TV)
Komori-san Can't Decline (TV) Weak It feels like it's going for a slice of life vibe, but without really have the time to try to pull that sort of thing off properly.
Love To-LIE-Angle (TV)
Märchen Mädchen (TV)
Mob Psycho 100 (TV) Weak The animation and soundtrack are a treat. Sadly, the show's sense of humor is miserable and it tells a frustratingly poor story.
Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls (TV) Weak I've never really been able to get into wanton MC abuse series, and the monster girl twist was not enough to save this for me.
My Sweet Tyrant (TV)
Ninja Slayer From Animation (ONA) Weak I get the joke, it just isn't that funny and it kind of got on my nerves pretty quick.
Onsen Yōsei Hakone-chan (TV) Weak The title character's antics are more annoying than funny or heartwarming.
Plastic Memories (TV) Awful I guess this was supposed to be tragic romance but it was just a tragic failure. The humor was universally terrible and its attempts to be dramatic rarely fared better including one of the most tone-inappropriate action sequences I've ever seen and these twin failures just sucked all the air away from the romantic fire.
Re-Kan! (TV) Weak Warm 'n' fuzzy but it didn't really have any humor or an interesting story to back it up.
Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign (TV) Awful The only good thing about this show as Shinoa, but when a major battle was depicted with a slideshow even she couldn't save it. Not that any of the animations was any good. Or any of the other characters. Or the plot.
Servamp (TV) Weak Works well when it's just being goofy but falls on its face when it tries to be serious. Unfortunately, the show rapidly alternates between spending about an equal amount of time on both elements which leaves the show lacking overall.
Seven Senses of the Reunion (TV)
Show By Rock!! (TV) Weak The humor quickly became repetitive, the musical combat sequences weren't frequent enough to carry the show, and the whole drive to become a major band was never really gripping.
Sound! Euphonium (TV) Weak A gorgeous show I wish I could have liked. I just couldn't get in to the teen drama enough to enjoy the show. The humor was good but not consistently present enough to carry the show.
Space Battleship Tiramisu (TV)
Taboo Tattoo (TV) Weak Starts out passable, since it's easy enough to not take seriously but eventually tries to force you to with disastrous consequences. The writing and pacing are simply not up to the task of being anything but silly.
Twin Star Exorcists (TV) Weak Too much animation in action sequences dragging you down? Feel like the average anime doesn't contain enough superfluous dialogue? Do you love annoying, pointless mascot characters? Have I got a show for you!
