Those of 2012’s many anime which failed the crucial test of persuading viewers to stick around after the episode 1 ED have been ranked by jilted anime fans – although whether it is always down to the quality of the episode (or the blandness of the harem or level of censorship) rather than the fickleness of the viewers is a question likely to exercise the minds of many given some of the choices in evidence…

The ranking:

1. Sukitte Ii na yo

2. AKB0048

3. Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai

4. Total Eclipse

5. Ebiten

6. To Love-Ru Darkness

7. Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru!

8. Sword Art Online

9. Horizon On The Middle Of Nowhere 2

10. Lupin the Third – Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna –

11. Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure

12. OniAi

13. Aquarion Evol

14. Highschool DxD

15. Inu x Boku SS

16. Black Rock Shooter

17. K

18. Shinsekai Yori

19. Queens Blade Rebellion

20. Kill Me Baby

21. Nisemonogatari

22. Saint Seiya Omega

23. Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!


25. New Prince of Tennis

    Bakemonogatari was way better. The "face off" with Kaiki was pretty anticlimatic. The battle in the final episode was the tits, though. But "dumping it after the first episode" is just absurd.

    Really? I thought the Kaiki face off was the best part. Especially because Araragi didn't really 'defeat' him at all.

    Thought that way too. It wasn't anything standard and that makes Nisemonogatari better than most anime in my opinion.

    Nisemonogatari wasn't meant to be published at 1st, the author just wrote it because he felt like it but it ended up being published, thats why it doesn't live up to the quality of the rest of the monogatari series.

    Would have been better if they'd have done the story line of when Araragi first met with Kiss-shot. That was a really cool read.

    Personally I think Nise is superior to Bake in any given way. :3

    But you have to watch it on BD, of course. But that rule applies to pretty much any anime.

    SAO lost me after about episode five or six. Something about the pacing of the plot.

    I begrudgingly stuck with it, but that first episode was pretty epic. Went downhill fast after that though.

    it's basically like Little Busters: The story is set up for those that have played the game, or in SAO's case, read the novel.

    Same deal again with Persona 4; Awesome game and a good "adaptation."

    no, it is just a shitty anime of a shitty source material.

    No. It was simply not tailored to be a normal anime. It was tailored to be a fan-pleaser. Namely, the fans of the novel(s).

    I didn't read the novel but I sure as hell enjoyed every bit of the anime of SAO. Each episodes were pretty good and by the time they were done me and my friend were alway saying thing like "it's already been 24minutes!?!" or "why are these episodes so shorts!" and "can't wait for next week!"
    Which we never did for any other animes before.

    the SAO novel the last years is beating To aru no majutsu no index novel in overall rankings.

    If you read both novels and watch both anime you will see how much better the Index novel was adapted into an anime.

    In the SAO anime you will find instances where it seems the makers thought they had to stretch the series to make it last two seasons while in later bits you see them rushing it cause they are getting too close to the episode limit...

    You can never please the fans of novels and mangas, they'll always find something to bitch about.
    It also kind of bugs me that they automatically write off fillers as garbage, but in all honestly I've never read a manga or novel so I can't point out or identify a filler unless someone in the comments section points it out to me.
    So it's my conclusion that if you want to enjoy an anime don't read the manga/novel beforehand b/c I enjoyed SAO except the part midway with that crap miracle thing that transitions SAO in ALO.

    And it failed pleasing the fans, fans utterly dislike the butchery the anime was made.

    ...I actually went and read the novels because I saw the anime and couldn't get enough. Each have their good points.

    The anime for one puts everything including side stories in chronological order, which I felt developed things much better than the original LN. On the other hand, the LN has time to dive into the mechanics of the game and less NTR-ish moments.

    Sword Art Online = .Hack//Sign
    (To Be fair, Sword Art Online was still a faster pace than .Hack//)

    I watched the Final Episode and ended up watching it from the beginning.

    If you were looking for "Fast Action" you're looking at the wrong series. This series is nothing more than a Sappy "Love Story". So you GUYS out there who watched thinking "Manly" you just caught yourself watching a "Chick-Flick".

    I'm perfectly okay with that since I have to study multiple Genres.

    Final point- for this type of story... they did well to challenge it's predecessor.

    Also... Tsukasa is a BOY - Not a Lesbo like he/she was in .Hack//

    Um, Tsukasa (the character) is a boy, but the player behind Tsukasa, An Shoji, is a girl... the final episode, and character synopsis' prove it.

    Dude, you should give it another shot. It starts off kind of weird and the concept is out there, but just of think of it as the anime crossover of Footloose and Star Wars. It also has some great scenes like one idol headbutting another. If I was standing I would have tripped and fallen when I saw that.

    It takes a great amount of fail to trip over while standing still. I guess that sums up AKB0048: a great amount of fail.
