12 Days of Anime: Top 12 "Worst" Animes of 2018

Reading Time: 4 minutes

I already made a list for the best animes of 2018 on my other 12 Days of Anime post. This time, I’ll be sharing to you the opposite, my Top 12 “Worst” Animes of 2018.

This is just based on my own opinion and there is a chance I might clash with someone else’s opinion. I mean, it can’t be helped if I find the anime trash and really bad. I tried to give them some chances, but they are not my cup of TEA. I can only handle enough mediocre animes. LOL.

This list would undergo the same mechanics as the Best list to finalize the ranking of the worst animes of 2018.
Oohoohohhoohho. This is going to be fun. XD

Märchen Mädchen
Pop Team Epic
Hakyuu Houshin Engi

I didn’t have a hard time choosing which ones are bad in this season because I detest these 3 after watching them. Believe it or not, I actually watched all the episodes of these animes. I actually wasted alot of time and HD space for them, and in the end, they were all trash. You guys might be thinking why PTE is in the list, well, cuz I’m not a fan of it. I tried to watch it to be “in” the trend, but its not appealing to me. Both Marchen Madchen and Hakyuu Houshin Engi had potential but they just thrown everything out of the rug and destroy their own potential. It really sucks cuz I was hoping for these two to atleast be decent in the long run, but WTF. Of course they won’t be.

Butlers: Chitose Momotose Monogatari
Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi

I haven’t seen much of the animes in this season, but these 3 stood out as the worst among them. I immediately dropped these animes after watching the first 3-5 episodes because I felt all of them are not worthy of my time.

Yume Oukoku to Nemureru 100-nin no Ouji-sama
Lord of Vermillion: Guren no Ou

This season was full of mediocre animes. Mediocre but okay and bearable. Still, there were animes that I just couldn’t stand.I didn’t expect I would get animes that are alot worse than the ones released last Winter. 2 of those were Senjuushi and Yume oukoku to nemureru 100-nin no Ouji-sama. These two are an abomination. Their premise is clearly for the female audience, but the execution were really really REALLY horrible. As a female, I was not enticed to watch these 2 bad animes. FOr Lord of Vermillion, its actually alot better compared to the other 2, but alot worse if compared to the other animes released in Summer. The animation looked cheap and bad executed and the premise wasn’t fully explained or wasn’t appealing for me to stay and watch the whole damn thing.

FALL 2018
Ore ga Suki nano wa Imouto dakedo Imouto ja Nai
Gakuen Basara

*facepalms* And I thought Summer had the worst animes.
I can’t believe this. The level of the trashness in this season is incredibly high, especially after I had seen Conception and Ore ga suki nano wa imouto dakedo Imouto ja nai. Both of them have the worst art and animation for this year, and also they wasted some really interesting premises. WTF!
Well, for Gakuen Basara…It was really disappointing. I was expecting it to like it but….UUuugghhh. I had seen the Sengoku Basara series before and I fairly enjoyed them, but seeing them in a highschool setting is totally not right. They tried to executed the level of exaggeration of Basara series to this new anime and its totally not working.
I know that these animes are still airing, but they are already sticking like a sore thumb above other animes so I can’t help but included them in this list.

Now, after knowing the top 3 worst animes easch seaosn, its time for me to rank them in the top 12. Oh boii, this is going to be a hard one.

12. Gakuen Basara

11. Butlers: Chitose Momotose Monogatari

10. Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi

09. Lord of Vermillion: Guren no Ou

08. Caligula

07. Pop Team Epic

06. Märchen Mädchen

05. Yume Oukoku to Nemureru 100-nin no Ouji-sama

04. Senjuushi

03. Ore ga Suki nano wa Imouto dakedo Imouto ja Nai

02. Hakyuu Houshin Engi

01. Conception


Phew…compared to the best list, this one was really hard to rank. Alot of the entries are super bad that they deserve the 1st place, but ultimately, the top spot goes to Conception. I think its a factor that its still airing now, hence, its still fresh in my mind. Ah! You might be wondering why Hakyuu Houshin Engi is at the 2nd place. Well, out of all the animes in the list, it was this anime where I actually invested alot of time and thoughts to, and everything came crashing down. So yeah, my hatred for it is quite big. Hahaha. I assure you my bitter feelings for it will be deminished by next year, but for now, I’ll savor this until the end of the year. XD

Feel free to share your thoughts down below about my “worst anime” list. Also share to me your own list, me also want to know all of yours too.

Anyway, that’s it for now.

Thanks for reading.

    I think of the anime I actually finished this year Caligula is the one I regret the most. Though Conception is running a close second.

      Oh man. You actually finished Caligula? I can’t barely watch the 2nd and 3rd episode of it. -_-
      Conception blinded me with its first episode. I don’t think I can watch more of it. LOL.

        Conception has become intensely painful for me, but I am at least getting a review out of it so I plan to finish.
        Caligula alas intrigued me with its premise so no matter how bad it got I was kind of committed to seeing it through to the end.

    I haven’t watched a single anime from the list haha.
    What can I say? I’ve got a good eye for anime… maybe…
