The anime of the winter 2012 season which were rubbish, disappointments or merely widely hated for some petty or inexplicable reason have been handily ranked by anime fans in this distinctly controversial list, intended as the mirror image of the winter 2012 top anime ranking.

The ranking:

1. Black Rock Shooter

2. Lagrange: The Flower of Rin-ne

3. Senki Zesshou Symphogear

4. Nisemonogatari

5. Chihayafuru

6. Mirai Nikki

7. Inu x Boku SS

8. Gundam AGE

9. Last Exile – Pham of the Silver Sky

10. Guilty Crown

11. Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou

12. Zero no Tsukaima F

13. Natsume Yuuhinchou 4

14. Shakugan no Shana 3

15. Thermae Romae

16. Kill Me Baby

17. Tantei Opera Milky Holmes 2

18. New Prince of Tennis

19. Aquarion Evol

20. Papa no Iu Koto wo Kikinasai!

21. BRAVE10

22. HUNTERร—HUNTER

23. Another

24. Ano Natsu de Matteru

25. Bodacious Space Pirates

For those wondering how an anime can place highly on both top and untop lists (Nisemonogatari placed 2nd on the top list and 4th on this list), a popular title can of course expect its own legion of detractors disgusted by its popularity, to say nothing of titles which betrayed expectations or otherwise failed to live up to their full potential.
