Hate’s a strong word. It might not even apply to many of the series on this list. But “Anime I Hate” catches your attention more than “Anime That Just Don’t Do It For Me.” That phrase might be more appropriate, but this ain’t about appropriateness.
This is about piquing your curiosity. “What anime does this dude hate? Does he hate something I love? I’m already filling with nerd rage! I can’t want to read this list!” You need that initial shock and furor to make this sort of thing work, and then you calm the hivemind’s anger when you can actually articulate why you don’t dig things. Either that or you just come off as a dude poking that hive with a big stick. Either conclusion is fine by me.
So yeah, there exists anime which I do not like. This is a list of said anime. Some of these series may not be ranked as low on that there My Anime List thing as other series, but there’s still something about them that rubs me the wrong way. Now let’s get to pissing you off already.
