“Top” 25 Worst Anime of Summer 2012


The conclusion of the summer 2012 anime season also sees some effort by anime fans to determine the very worst offerings of the season, a determination which is sadly all too difficult to make given the number of contenders available this time around.

The ranking, intended to include all anime airing during the season:

1. Gundam Age

2. Yuru Yuri 2

3. Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru!

4. Sword Art Online

5. Ebiten

6. Kokoro Connect

7. Hyouka

8. Binbougami-ga!

9. Aesthetica Of A Rogue Hero

10. Joshiraku

11. Tari Tari

12. Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai

13. Campione!

14. The Ambition of Oda Nobuna

15. Koi to Senkyou to Chocolate

16. Horizon On The Middle Of Nowhere

17. Total Eclipse

18. Upotte!!

19. Accel World

20. Dog Days’

21. Sengoku Collection

22. Kuroko’s Basketball

23. Arcana Famiglia

24. Humanity Has Declined

25. Lagrange 2

Ranking aficionados will of course note the usual paradox of popularity inherent in such a ranking – a title has to be popular in the first place if it is to be hated widely, as awful titles nobody bothered to watch in the first place will easily be worsted by highly popular titles, whose small minorities of detractors outnumber those who have even heard of the lesser titles.
