Recently over at 2ch, users created a new thread in order to decide on the most unforgivable acts in anime history. Naturally the first reply was to nominate the Nagi-sama non virgin scandal from last year. Luckily people who actually have a brain ignored that answer and started submitting some interesting choices:
~ Gurren Lagann Episode 4
~ Nice Boat School Days Finale
~ Katsukawa Katsushi sues Nippon TV, Tatsunoko Pro and Kuri Ippei for allegedly plagiarizing character designs.
~ Endless Eight (naturally)
~ The 17th episode of Ronin Warriors is accidently aired two weeks in a row causing the series to be shortened by one episode.
~ Hetalia forced off air by Korean protests (yeah, that was pretty lame)
I think my favorites are the suggestions that the mere existence of certain series is a crime against anime humanity. Some of the unlucky series to get that honor included Idolmaster, Final Fantasy: Spirits Within (wow really? It was a bad movie but an unforgivable act?), Rebirth of Buddah and Minami ke: Okawari. But really, if we’re going to be over dramatic and hyperbolic about this let’s really go for it.
So what do you think are the most unforgivable acts in anime history? For me, Geneon taking their ball and going home in 2007 is one of my big ones. Most of 2009 for Kyoto Animation and Kadokawa still bugs me (Yes, I understand the whole marketing thing but still… pain in the ass!). Then I think I would top off the list with the existence of Debutante Detective Corps, Sailor Moon Super S and the lack of a Sailor Stars or Higurashi: Kai license and a second season for Princess Nine.
