What's the worst anime/manga you've ever seen/read, and why?

tbh, Pupa for me....there is so much wrong with that series, I don't even know where to even begin. I honestly don't know Japan gets away with a series like this. Thank god the episodes are only 4 minutes long.

There are others, but this one is the worst.

Most of the never-ending shonen formulas are series I can't stand. Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, Pokemon, Fairy Tail... but some of the worst things I've ever seen are, no particular order:

Gun x Sword: It's so insanely awful, you'd think it's an intentional parody. I actually used this series as influence to write an intentionally bad fanfic once, based on the writing style of a really moronic ex-friend of mine, who was a mega otaku, and it blended so well.

El Cazador Del La Bruha: They try to bring back ancient Mexican witches to take over the Japanese government. Doesn't that say it all?
Pandering and awful characters, with the little cute mute kid trope thrown on top of it.

Dragonball Super: Literally the worst anime series I have ever seen. When you thought the DBZ fanfics of the 90's couldn't get worse... they made them official.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: I know this series is mega popular, but I hate almost everything about it. The horrendous writing and the even worse character designs; it's quintessential style over substance to me, which is something I greatly dislike in my writing.

Mahou Shouja Madoka Magica. It's poorly written, relies solely on the shock value of pointless suffering in order to push forward its meagre narrative without bothering to properly explore its themes or develop its awful cast, has an unappealing art style, and is neither a magical girl show nor a deconstruction despite the toxic fanbase pushing both viewpoints on you if you so much as breathe in the general direction of the show. It's another one of those dark and edgy shows that is only popular because it's dark and edgy, and not from any noteworthy quality.

It also started an annoying trend of similar shows. It's like the Ocarina of Time of anime or something.

    Sold. I've seen and really liked other mukty Bee Train girls and guns series. All I really knew of this one was the song about tacos.

    The worst I've encountered is still Abunai Sisters by a mile. Same mukty CG, same mukty plot, same mukty dubbing.

      Because it's the level of bad that is worth experiencing at least once. Makes everything else look watchable lol.

      It's so close to falling into so bad it's good territory but fails to do so.

          Worst I have encountered yet is High School of the Dead. It had the potential to be decent, but the nonstop sexual content surrounding the main protagonists just got pointless and uncomfortable to watch.

            Anime De Training! Ex. It’s a series of shorts comprised entirely of an anime girl teaching you how to exercise. In order to make it “entertaining,” they added a bunch of echii shots. It’s pure fan service with nothing else.

              This trashy show within a show has a terrible plot, bad voice acting, horrendous graphics, and inconsistency between episodes. That said, it's what the creators wanted so all of this is actually a compliment.

              I watched that anime. It was awful. Tbh, all self insert anime are lmfao. I don't know how anyone could feel entertained by self inserts.
