Anime Spotlight : Worst Anime of Fall 2014

The Fall 2014 Anime Season was a bit lackluster compared to previous. It had it's gems though but there was a lot of bad to terrible shows. That are just a waste of time. I'm going to compile a list of the Best shows this season in the next week as more shows come to an end. But here is the three worst shows of Fall 2014.

Hi Scoool! Seha Girl

Synopsis : The story of the anime will revolve around Dreamcast, Sega Saturn, and Mega Drive, who have just enrolled in SeHaGaga Academy at Tokyo's Haneda Ootorii station. They are given an assignment needed to graduate by a suspicious teacher, and to clear this assignment, the girls need to enter the world of Sega games. The girls must try their best to graduate without incident.
Tags : short episodes, school life
Thoughts : This show feels like the brainchild of someone who saw Neptunia and decided they can better it in some obscure way, by using MMD like animation, horrible script writing and annoying characters. There is absolutely no reason to watch this show. 

World Trigger

Synopsis : A gate to another dimension has burst open, and from it emerge gigantic invincible creatures that threaten all of humanity. Earth's only defense is a mysterious group of warriors who have co-opted the alien technology in order to fight back!
Tags : manga, shounen
Thoughts : World Trigger is what you end up with when you take a run of the mill shounen manga, add paper-thin characters, lazy animation, ill fitting music and bad pacing. World Trigger is the perfect example of what not to do. Watching this show is seriously less fun than drowning.

Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete 

Synopsis : Uchihama Academy is growing by leaps and bounds. With the construction of a new school building, there will be one last General Club Festival at the old building that is slated to be closed. The students vow to go all out to make this final cultural festival a success.

The Astronomy Club of which Akiyama Sou is a member is filled with the big names on campus. Just before the festival on October 1, the club receives a request from the student executive committee to calm the uneasiness among the students. There are reports of ghost sightings, accidents, sleeping sickness, and other mysterious incidents at the old building. When Furukawa Yui, a quiet girl who transferred late into the school, appears before Sou, the gears of fate slowly begin to move.

Thoughts : Going by the synopsis and the tags, one might be forgiven for thinking. "Hey this sounds like it has similar elements to Stein's;Gate!" But the truth is far from it. Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete is a mess filled with every romance cliche in the book, voice acting that's painful to listen to, terrible animation and uninspired characters. Everything in this show feels cheap and forced.

Did you watch any of these three shows? What were your thoughts on them? Let me know in the comments and keep your eyes open for the Best Anime of Fall 2014 post!
