What's the most boring anime you've ever watched?
sakurashit or something pet no kanojo
[insert anime with no plot here] e.g. everything in the slice of life genre
fuck i don't know how i forced myself to sit though 39 episodes of pure filler, but I did it.
A tie between Haibane Renmei and Serial Experiments Lain.
Both of them are the only anime to put me to sleep multiple times.
Aria, and I prefer the term relaxing.
this and the first episode of gintama nearly put me to sleep.
K-ON!, Yuyushiki, Non Non biyori, Hyouka.
Any episode of your favorite series.
Aria, Hidamari, and Non Non Biyori. I just can't do Iyashikei.
I did my best and made it to episode 7. I felt like punching Haruhi in the fucking face all the way through, I find it difficult to believe that people actually enjoy watching this annoying bitch.
Right there. That show fucking sucked.
Samurai Girls S1
That image of Johnny in the snow, dead at the end of The Shining is literally what my expression was like during that entire show.
She was intended to be am insolent, annoying, almost-Mary-Sue character (since she was basically god in the series) at first. She grows out of it you know.
Hyouka. No contest.
What a dumb babby
Texhnolyze. I think it was supposed to be boring though, because somehow that makes it deeper.
Darkstalkers OVA, not even Morrigan could save that shit.
Cowboy Bebop or Yuri Yuri.
Well, good for her, I don't feel like putting up with her shit for another episode, maybe I'll give it another try in a few years.
Only watched TV back then and didn't have much choice.
Durarara is the only show that has ever put me to sleep.
GiTS was amazing. I guess you don't have the patience to listen to a complex plot.
Seriously how is a show about alien hunters in space and tits so boring.
or maybe he's just put to sleep by slow pacing, muted colors, major's soothing VA, and relaxing soundtrack
This. I fell asleep during every episode.
Ichigo mashimaro, I never understand it.
Lucky Star by a fucking mile
nobunaga the fool made me fall asleep
I remember haruhi boring me too
Not him but GitS just makes me sleepy as fuck for some reason. It's not boring or anything but I just find it hard to stay awake watching it.
Eh, I guess I can understand this. It's like how >>101347626 described it
Future dairy was boring as shit for me. So was high school dxd
Aku no hana is the best anime i've ever watched
But it's so delightfully wacky.
I'm seriously wondering if you guys even know what boring means, or if you just have really low powerlevels. There are so many anime where objectively literally nothing happens and it's entirely talking or boring shit with flat characters, if you chose something that anyone else likes you probably just didn't enjoy it.
I stayed for the music.
>There are so many anime where objectively literally nothing happens and it's entirely talking or boring shit with flat characters
Yeah, that's like 90% of all SoL shows.
Talking: The show
>Yeah, that's like 90% of all SoL shows.
>Doesn't understand what SoL means
>I'm seriously wondering if you guys even know what boring means, or if you just have really low powerlevels
Yeah, people listing anime within the last few seasons are warning signs of that, or have short term memories, or are newfags or trolls.
Are you saying my interpretation is wrong?
They aren't even talking, they're just saying words.
If it was just talking it wouldn't be so bad but half the time everything they say is totally fucking stupid and meaningless drivel.
Means they're shit-outta-luck
Well that is your opinion and you have every right to it.
what if an anime was so boring that you died if you watched it so nobody was left to warn others about how boring it was and it's still lurking out there claiming its victims day by day?
My opinion is better than yours
How anyone could watch more than the OP is a mystery to me.
>other people use pu.ush
Time to uninstall it I guess.
Dropped all a few episodes in
Definitely KLK, dropped it halfway through the first episode, decided to pick it up again, only to drop it during the second
I know it shouldn't really. It is a fairly fast paced action based series with a catch and upbeat as fuck OP.
I honestly don't know what the issue is with me and Xamd though. I have tried to watch it on four different times occasions now and every time I have fallen asleep by the third episode. I have tried watching it at different times of day and under different circumstances but I honestly can't get past that third episode.
There are a lot of things you can call KLK but "boring" definitely isn't one of them.
My mistake, I meant KnK
I guess any thread beginning with a picture of Chidori is doomed to fall into an abyss of shitposting and wrong opinions.
But, I love slice of life
Hyouka was good 8/10
>There are so many anime where objectively literally nothing happens and it's entirely talking or boring shit with flat characters
Avatar the last airbender.
I like the music bits and the opening and endings are good too. Also Yui is cute as fuck, just which her character had some...character.
Wish not which
You take that back fucker
utena and aoi hana
I kept watching in hopes it would get better.
I felt cheated by the end of it, I wanted to kill myself thinking about how many other shows I could have watched.
Dragon Ball GT managed to be worst than the original serie.
Milky Holmes: Alternatives were pretty shitty too sadly enough. The main serie is awesome though.
the first four episodes are shitty.
most people probably dont make it that far so they just assume the whole thing is like that.
You sad fuck
I still don't know why I bothered to watch all of KnK. The show had a mediocre start, one good and amusing episode in the middle and a terrible ending.
Blue Exorcist and Danganronpa
I'm sorry it wasn't SAO, anon.
I don't know about you guys but Texhnolyze made me sleep. Didn't even get past second episode.
I actually enjoyed the start of it but just seeing the little shits fight over and over the past few episodes has been terrible.
You sad little man
it was good until they started just talking around a fucking table and playing with their fucking glass every 30 secondes
>implying the original Dragon Ball Z was bad
>lacking attention span
This. Also it doesn't have any good girls.
You're favorite anime.
Or, alternately, Nichijou.
>Yui is cute as fuck
>I like the music bits.
But the music is horrendous, anon.
The music was really generic and mundane. I would tell KyoAni to stop making crap like K-On!, but the last time they tried to avoid being mundane, it lost them shittons of money.
Hyouka, every shounenshit (which is obviously shit because it panders to 10 year old children) and every haremshit show ever.
Woah what's wrong with some Shounen anime? You didn't like Hunter x Hunter?
Are you talking about KnK? I'm pretty sure they still made a profit on that.
There are some exceptions. Very few ones.
I'll never get those twenty minutes back.
Has nobody mention toheart? That she was depressingly boring!
Dragon Ball = Good
Dragon Ball Z = Bad
Dragon Ball GT = OH SHIT NIGGER WHAT ARE YOU DOING
Learn the difference, it could save your life.
What's wrong, not enough moeshit for you?
Go back to trash like NNB.
Got one, stay mad.
>I started watching anime this season and I think all SoL is NNB and that everyone who isn't a fat kid into shounenshit is a SoLfag, please rape my face
How's your first week here? How's your assdevastation for knowing that /a/'s into moeshit?
Nooooo Fumi chan gets Achans tang man trust me
I've been here longer than you and I've always hated moeshit and it's audience you raging homosexual.
Can't get through episode 4
Saikano. It's just forced depression porn, with plot holes out the ass.
First time I saw Aoi hana I thought it was else...
I was looking for yuri man
Jigoku Youchien. If you've watched this at all you agree with me. A much worse short than Chibi Devi, Litchi de Hikari, Sparrows Hotel and Pupa combined. It has 90% less animation than your average DLE flash show, and the only thing you get to look forward to is somewhat cute cardboard cutouts of girls engaging in completely terrible manzai comedy. I don't dislike manzai, but if any show exemplifies doing it wrong, it would be this one.
Hidamari Sketch. I love slow-paced anime like for example Mushishi, but HS didn't really do the trick for me. Not saying it's bad, I personally just thought it was boring.
>I find it difficult to believe that people actually enjoy watching this annoying bitch.
Same here. Why would you like the personification of all the bitch popular girls that ignored you in high school?
It wasn't even funny
There was nothing wrong with the Lychee shorts.
Aku no Hana was extremely boring except during the unintentional humorous parts
school days. nothing else even comes close
Boring wouldn't be the right word, but something about it pisses me off.
After all that epic drama from the first episode, one would expect the whole series to be like that instead of turning out to be another brainless comedy endless repeating the same jokes (which weren't very funny to begin with).
For stuff I actually finished:
Tsubasa chronicles or whatever
Psychic Detective Yamato
Countless stuff that I dropped too.
Lain, Mushishi, Texhnolyze are horrible choices and show your low powerlevel.
Sword Art Online. It was good for the first three episodes, but after that the plot aimlessly meanders about and the characters never develop (if anything they undevelop, especially Asuna who is even more useless and annoying than Sakura from Naruto, if that's even possible). The action wasn't anything to be proud of either, there are many shounen fighting anime with much better action.
I honestly didn't care for it.
I can see how people think it's great but I didn't care for the mc, I feel asleep by how repetitive it was, how retarded each loop was and the final episode didn't impress me.
It's the only anime where I've dropped three times and slept the same number. I basically had to force myself to watch it.
Unique, different, possibly good? Sure, I can see it, but revolutionary? Fuck no.
>I've been here longer than you
So, confirmation that you're a newfag trying to look like an oldfag.
>I know how to identify anonymous people on 4chan!
Hilarious, and it's not even summer yet.
>I've always hated moeshit
HE HATES IT!
Can you strawman any harder?
Can you buzzword any harder?
Without a doubt Aria
I've seen 20 anime
Can you both stop being faggots?
Sure, but why is shounen such a shitty (target audience) genre?
I've actually seen 21 but you were close.
>SHIT, he called me out on my logical fallacy!
>I know, I'll claim he used a buzzword, that way I don't have to argue!
Great debating skills, surely you are my intellectual rival anon.
This guy knows what's up.
>SHIT, he doesn't agree with my opinion!
>I know, I'll claim "strawman" as an argument and hope they feel intimidated by me intellectual superiority!
You sure try hard.
So I assume you're enjoying sakura trick.
Holy shit you people are retarded.
Polite sage for off-topic
I couldn't watch blue gender.
Whenever anything started happening it just stopped making sense
What ep. did you make it to?
And now you're committing tu quoque
Keep the fallacies coming, I really want to see how uneducated you are.
Madoka. Dropped after episode 2. Moeblob shit
you're probably trolling but fuck you anyways
does it get better?
Are you trying to say Sakurasou was good?
You don't get tired of reusing the same shitty "arguments" over and over to defend your useless opinions, do you?
>complaining about uneducated people on /a/
Must be a first hard week for you in here, I see.
It was bad.
Canaan or Black Rock Shooter for me, yet I watched every episode of both. Guess I hate myself
It's one of my favorites.
But the pacing is really, really slow, and it sometimes is too "bleak" for its own good, so I can see why so many people hate it.
I say give it a chance, but won't guarantee that you'll like it.
- Give me an idea: How did you feel about Texhnolyze or Gasaraki?
/a/ has some of the worst bait I've seen.
Texhnolyze is a personal favorite.
So how does calling it boring qualifies as trolling?
Air, Ao no Exorcist, Lucky Star, Cowboy Bebop, Darker Than Black, D.Gray-Man, Durarara, Black Butler, Evangelion, Rosario to Vampire, Samurai 7, Samurai Champloo, .hack//sign, Shuffle
Then I'd say go for it.
I wasn't the one you were replying to, I just agreed with you.
I'm sorry that you can't accept criticism for your pedo shit.
Lain. Boring shit. Ok music.
I quite enjoyed it. The greatest series of all time? Amazing plot? Far from it, but none the less I enjoyed it. All I care is that enjoyed watching it.
Definitely get why /a/nons wouldn't like it though.
I bet you think every slice of life anime is pedoshit and you have a raging trauma towards all "cute" shows in general.
I really dislike the whole "anti-noob" attitude that /a/ has sometimes, but to think that someone was actually fall for that, you must be really, really new.
And to make it clear, no, I don't like Madoka.
Clannad. It was probably the most boring and confusing thing I've watch. I sadly watched the entire first series then like 3 episodes of After Story and wish i had the time from the moments I watched it back
Space Insurance Fraud
Ah man I don't blame you at all. I loved Clannad but if you're not into SoL shit, I can see you dropping it before it got really good. It took a while for After Story to get to the part everyone raves anout.
Most people on /a/ are smart and sophisticated.
Then there's people like you.
Bakemonogatari, they're just talking about absolutely meaningless shit and for some reason people like that.
I guess it's trying to be funny but they fail miserably
>Most people on /a/ are smart and sophisticated.
And now I've lost it.
Kill la shill, Attack on titanic
also k-on and every other show just like it.
I know I can kill
I'm into SoL stuff its just that Clannad really dragged it out to the point where i had to stop. That and i didn't understand the parts where it would suddenly show us some robot or something.
The truth exist beyond the gate
spice and wolf
the truth is just beyond the Gate
I want to join in too
Aria was pretty boring. Not a terrible show though, but I wouldn't bother to watch it again.
Gungrave was pretty boring. Which was a shame because it could have been a lot better if the pacing wasn't so off for the type of show it was. At least the ending was good. It's probably the directors fault though, since I thought Trigun was pretty boring as well.
Scryed was hard for me to get through. It was better than the manga at least but I had to force myself to finish it.
>I didn't understand the parts where it would suddenly show us some robot or something.
Then you need to keep watching.
The first episode of Free put me to sleep.
Hyouka and Wolf's Rain were very boring too.
Based on sources I stumbled onto, I went into it expecting a KEY-like show: nakige-based and romance driven. Not up to that level, of course, but I'm a sucker for sad, melodramtic romances.
What I got was a late 90's snoozefest. Bad character designs, no real story arcs, nothing remotely depressing or sad, a HORRIFIC dubbing, and only the hint of any sort of romance.
I watched like 5 episodes of this shit in hopes that there'd be some development between the main couple or some sort of depressing turns story-wise, but nothing.
You gotta be more specific anon.
Trigun and Gungrave weren't directed by the same guy.
Trigun's manga author did take pat in the creation of the game Gungrave was based on, though.
Fucking pedoshit, ughh makes me so mad!
I'll will but I probably won't like it
I miss DtB.
My bad. Maybe that was it.
I remember they were both Madhouse and they had the same sort of visual style and pacing.
sue me, Hiabane was a Lifetime special with no satisfying conclusion
Not with that mindset.
Yes, I know.
Now go away.
5 centimeters per second
I only watched the first part, a couple years ago, maybe will get around to the next ones. I rarely find anime boring.
Or I guess Cardfight Vanguard or Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka (Imoutits).
What are you a gay nigger?
If the first act of 5cm/s didn't hook you, the second act won't either. The third act might, but if you're that uninterested and uninvested in the characters, chances are slim.
Also forgot to mention, at least in Gungrave there was loads of QUALITY.
Especially of the tiny head huge shoulders variety.
yes blue exorcist was boring as shit
It's all about the character interaction. I watched the first episode and thought like you, until I saw how many people like it and gave it another chance. I hope you can come to enjoy the anime I enjoy, but I won't hate you for not liking it!
>Using exclamation marks
really, i think aria is pretty chill, dont have to worry about shir
Fuck you too!
You might not have to worry about shit, but it certainly doesn't compel you to care about anything either.
I don't get it. I haven't watched it myself but I've seen plenty of whining over it, what is it just so boring about this? The premise looks like we're getting some pirate action in space, how can it be boring?
>all about character interaction
>but I won't hate you for having a different opinion than me!
>The premise looks like we're getting some pirate action in space
Saikano, this was the most boring anime i've ever watched
>The premise looks like we're getting some pirate action in space
Yeah....about that..turns out that they're not really pirates but insurance fraud merchants, there's some pirate action but they're far in between and not very interesting.
Or you could just give me a little heads up without having to reply like someone who just got from >>>/b/?
Meant to quote >>101368017
Oh. So not even for the bait lesbians? The art, OST, something?
Oh there's yuri pandering or rather the entire cast is full blown gay for one another.
Heh, entertaining enough. I hope.
The robot doesn't make sense until you finish AS. But yeah it's confusing your first watch.
You should like it. Most people disappointed with it expected pirate action based on the title but it's mostly technology porn.
God, that movie was garbage.
It was like watching G-Gundam all over again, except it actually took itself seriously.
seriously beyond fucking agreed. I love SoL but I cannot fucking stand Lucky Star.
and Durarara was so fucking disappointing considering Baccano is my all time favorite
Any slice of life that's not Free!
I thought it was pretty good.
Sure is tumblr in here.
Like I give a shit about what you think, Anno.
Ladies and gentlemen, your average BL landwhale whore.
Naw, at least Another's death were hilarious.
Boku no pico
I watched it from a friend reccomendation so I don't know any /a/ jokes that were made. And on my own, I couldn't think of anything witty.
That's a pretty damn difficult question. There are some outrageously boring anime out there. But pretty much every piece of shit OVA that tries to pass itself off as a philosophical novella. Just stop, please you're embarressing yourself.
most boring thing I've ever watched by far
My dark-skinned sibling of negro descent.
He did nothing wrong.
That's being redundant, anon.
Not even joking I just fell asleep to hyouka
Only 8 people saying lucky star, I'm surprised. I watched it all but I really can't figure out why.
Maria-sama ga Miteru
boku no true tears
I don't know, if I could remember their names then they probably wouldn't have been that boring after all.
I wouldn't doubt if I was one of the few people who even watched it all.
I gave up at episode 6. I was falling asleep and couldn't remember anything that happened except that a five minute conversation about cake happened. The popularity it had astounds me to this day.
I finished its first season but dropped second on first ep. It really had this feel to it that was almost Melancholy but mixed with depression from the boredom that it's stale atmosphere creates. I saw the dub and yea not the best.
