Again. It bored me. - SelfDestruct

22 The Asterisk War The Asterisk War
23 The Seven Deadly Sins The Seven Deadly Sins

There is an anime with this name... But it's not a good one. - SelfDestruct

27 Squid Girl Squid Girl Ika Musume is the main character from 'Shinryaku! Ika Musume' an anime about a Squid Girl that wants to punish humanity for polluting the oceans, but ends up breaking a wall and is forced to work at a restaurant to pay off the damages.

I expected a lot of humor and fun from this anime, but I ended up not fully liking it.
What I dislike the most, are the characters.
Squid girl gets on my nerves at times, and some of her actions make me feel awkward.
Eiko is technically 'temper-less'.
Chizuru is the worst character in the entire show. (Especially in the earlier episodes.)
Sanae is absolutely annoying.
Cindy and her colleagues have the intelligence of a potato.
Nagisa is too concerned.
The only character that I like, is Kiyomi. (She is so nice.)
The humor is also very mean-spirited at times.
Don't get me started on Chizuru in the early episodes. (She is too sadistic at times.)
And Sanae making bad jokes all the time.
Overall, not a bad anime, I give it a 7/10 for season 1, and 6/10 for season 2. - Kiyomi

28 Hellsing Hellsing

Good but just missed the expectations. It would have been great otherwise - SelfDestruct

Hellsing is disappointing BUT Hellsing Ultimate was awesome. - Tia-Harribel

I think anyone in the Kagepro fandom (kagerou project, the fandom/project MCA falls into) can agree this anime was at least a little disappointing. I love the characters but the plot was told in such a boring way & I've heard it so many times I'm afraid I'll get bored. But I've heard it's definitely better and that will not stop me from celebrating the heat haze (August 15, it's 10:35 pm on August 13th rn) or reading fanfiction or loving the characters.

30 Azure Striker Gunvolt: The Anime
31 Tokyo Ghoul Tokyo Ghoul

Tokyo Ghoul is not disappointing unless you're talking about the 2nd season. - Tia-Harribel

If Parasyte can be on this list, then Tokyo Ghoul can be on this list as well. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

32 Samurai Champloo Samurai Champloo Samurai Champloo is a Japanese anime series developed by Manglobe. Samurai Champloo is set in an alternate version of Edo-era Japan with an anachronistic, predominantly hip hop, setting. It follows Mugen, an impudent and freedom-loving vagrant swordsman; Jin, a composed and stoic rōnin; and Fuu, a more.

Most of the story was great until the ending; which was not only extremely anti-climatic, but completely predictable.

Only a handful of episodes deal with the real plot, the rest is just random filler episodes full of forgettable characters. If only it'd sticked to the initial episodes...

33 Dimension W Dimension W

I was excited to watch it, but it really wasn't as exciting as I though it would be

36 Dragon Ball GT Dragon Ball GT

Not unlike DBS, DBGT is hated by many as it's disappointing as a continuation of the legend that is DBZ. - Goku02
