Sin, this anime movie released by ADV that had some of the worst animation that I've ever seen and one of the most cliched plots I don't even remember because it was so generic.

Kiddy Grade was pretty bad for me. Terrible writing and music. Like the animation, though.

I heard it gets good later, but I won't chance it.

I personally liked Kiddy Grade... oh well. Anyway, I never really liked Lain, too vague.

I didn't mind Kiddy Grade either and it is surprising what a turn the series takes later on. Almost stops me from being ashamed of owning it!

I didn't think Devil Lady was all that bad. I really enjoyed the psychological horror in the first 3/4 of the series; it the last 1/4 when the plot veers off at a tangent that kinda ruined the ending for me.

Don't mind Kiddy Grade either, though the climax was a bit vapid IMO.

Oh, another series that sucks was Geneshaft; what a waste of time that was. My most expensive mistake though has to be Trigun. I know this show has a lot of fans, but the final episode ruined the entire series for me; I hated the damned ending, so much so, that I won't watch the series again.

Now I'm a big fan of Trigun and as much as I like it I'm gonna have to agree with you, just seemed to open, like nothing really seemed finished and kinda left me sitting there thinking "the hell just happened?"

thats why i bought the chinese rip

but i liked the ending
when they point the guns at each others head and shoot *click... click* talk about intense


i would have to say my largest disappointment was Final Fantasy Unlimited. i guess i should have realized when the whole series cost 10$ at Hastings... i couldnt make it past the first cd.

Probably Zaion: I Wish You Were Here. Though Yamamoto Yohko was pretty bad as well. They were both random blind purchases, which I sometimes do for fun or if I have a feeling when seeing the cover art.

I was fortunate enough to see Love Hina on fansub first so that I never made the mistake of purchasing that crap. I remember buying the VHS of Appleseed, Riding Bean, Fist of the North Star, Baoh, Project A-Ko, Biohunter, forever ago. While they aren't all that great, I can't help but enjoy them anyways.

I thought geneshaft was okay. But, the only reason I watched it was they said it was from the makers of Escaflowne.

I still haven't seen it yet, but do plan to someday watch Geneshaft. I was also interested in it simply because of Kazuki Akane.

Ho-man! That steamy piece of crap sucked. Glad I only paid three bucks on Ebay for it, that way I didn't feel guilty about using the disc as a coaster.
