    Since there are so many knowlegeble people around these days I thought it would be a good idea to get the heads up on anime and manga that should be avoided.

    I know there are different tastes and likes but by now you should get an idea of who likes the same stuff you do. This thread is not meant as a bashing arena as opinions may differ (as we have already seen else where)

    Here is my tip: If you love your braincells and prefer to avoid the sugary sweetness that
    accompanies hairbrained school girl sagas avoid Azumanga Daioh

    Bwhahahaha....lol I don't particularly go out my way to watch Azumanga, but if I'm feeling in a stupid mood, it's one of the best anime's to suit it. It's just so random, but yes, you'll most likely loose braincells watching this.

    the worst anime would have to be Genma Wars, but it's so bad that it's hilarious XD

    Avoid Ninja Scroll if you have a problem with gore and sugestive violence.

    Except currently being a part of the Saturday Adult Swim programming block.

    If we're getting on to the topic of stuff not to watch if you hate excessive violence and suggestive content, than I have to bring up Gantz. I have to say that I'm honestly interested in what happens with the story (I've seen about half of the first season) but I'm put off by how crazy over the top it is.

    avoid tales of eternia if you want to remain sane.
    avoid fist of the north star if you want to see some nicely drawn anime.
    avoid kamyla if you want some serious hentai.

    You're clearly an imbecile if you can't appreciate the glorious hilarity of Bo-bo-bo.

    Not that it's something new and exciting, but I'd say "avoid Marmalade Boy" if I actually remember what it was I thought was bad about it from about 8 years ago or so when I saw it last...

    I'm pretty sure it's just a soppy plot, irritating characters...the usual.

    Well, if you don't really have such a problem - I would definitely recommend seeing Ninja Scrolls. I thought it was pretty interesting and while it was a bit over the top (especially at the start) it never seemed so much so that I would want to quit watching it. (I don't consider myself a sadist by any means, but most of the time cartoon violence and gore isn't necessarily going to offend me so much)


    Personally, I also didn't really like Akira so take whatever I say with a grain of salt because everyone keeps having that as pretty much the top anime movie of all time. (I didn't finish it though - got so tired of it that I had to turn it off.) I guess it's groundbreaking at least
