Figures Ms. Tanizaki would be No. 1.



Her disregard for automotive safety is nothing short of legen-

Last season was pretty lackluster, imo. This season there are at least 5 shows I'd put ahead of any from last season.

Pet peeve time:
Quote:
She gets into accidents frequently and casually, such as when she pulls in front of traffic and forces the cars behind her to break so hard they flip.

I have somewhat gotten used to seeing that in comments and forum posts, but I would expect a professional writer to known you brake a car to stop it, you don't break it.

Back on topic, I'm not surprised to see Twin Angel come in with 0% on that list. While I know everyone has their own tastes, I don't believe I would be able to wrap my head around anyone thinking it was the best of the season.

Once again, the poll isn't ready when the article launched. Ah well, that's to be expected by now I guess. And I thought this feature was going to settle on having 8 entries each time. Surely there are more than just 7 bad drivers in anime. Like Yui, from Lucky Star who appears to have quite the case of road rage whenever she gets behind the wheel, even though she's a traffic cop. Or Old Man (no name given, he's always referred to as Jiji) from Pani Poni Dash shows quite the reckless streak when he gets behind the wheel too. So, you could easily have upped this one to 8!

Leigharch (the high Irish driver in episode 12) from Black Lagoon didn't make the list? Come on.

If Canaan's taxi driver doesn't kill you with his driving, he'll do it with his singing.

Hah, funny article. Yeah, I wouldn't let them drive me anywhere. I'll stick with the subway, thank you very much.

- Garderobe academy (My-Otome)
- PeachMoon (or Momotsuki) academy (Pani Poni Dash!)
- Yamabuki Arts High School (Hidamari Sketch)
- Ryouou High School (Lucky☆Star)

- Hinamizawa high school (Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni (Kai))
- Fuka Academy (Mai-HiME)
- St. Spica's Academy / St. Le Rim Girls School / St. Miatre Girls Academy (Strawberry Panic!)
- Mihoshi Academy (Macross Frontier)
- Lillian Academy (Maria Watches Over Us)

Yes, yes, which is why, whether I'm traveling at home or abroad I take the Cat Bus from "My Neighbor Totoro."

When you absolutely positively have to get there -without messing your pants or killing the innocent, which includes yourself- except no substitute.

Man, the Goku and Piccolo trying to their driver's license is one of the best comedy filler eps in existence if you ask me.
And, stupidly enough, it happened entirely because Chi-chi forgot that women can drive (not to mention that Goku spends most of his time away training or dead, not much use for him to have one, eh?)
I mean, the guy can fly! Of course it'd never occur to him to get a license, he can fly!

I dunno, Gintoki is pretty bad at times. Anime hyper But I guess he's just reckless and not a bad driver.

I was just thinking of Ashea from Elemental Gerad (Gelade): Flag of the Blue Sky who has no skill with machines at all, and gets Wolx's beloved motorcycle Viv destroyed (and he faints).

For the poll I chose Gakuen Alice, but really, why wasn't Tokiwadai on there?! I would loooooooove to go there.

For the poll:

Ohtori Academy! (Revolutionary Girl Utena) Just.. you know... without the crazy headmaster. The architecture would be totally worth it.

Rosette from Chrono Crusade was pretty legendary as a bad driver herself. I think she totaled half a dozen cars by the end of the series. Very Happy
