As a fan of anime, you will understand how difficult it is to look forward to your favorite movie. Waiting patiently for various announcements about the anime’s production stage. Followed by months of waiting for the first images. Then continued to patiently wait for the release time. However, when I finished watching it, I was not satisfied with what I expected, this is certainly not a rare thing in anime.
There are a lot of anime that are broadcast in 2021, but not all of them make fans happy, and some are even vehemently criticized. Here are the 5 names that were commented as the most disappointing in the past year.
Fena: Pirate Princess
Fena: Pirate Princess tells the story of a young orphan girl, Fena Houtman. Fena was raised on an island where there was no hope of becoming anything more than a “chattel”, culled and discarded by the British Empire. But Fena is not just an orphan. As her mysterious past slowly unravels, Fena will break the chains of her oppressors. The goal is to create a new, unfettered identity, to find a place where she truly belongs and to find out the true mysteries behind the “Eden” keyword.
Was an original anime so at first no one knew much about it. However, with great advertising and introduction, along with beautiful art and graphics, Fena: Pirate Princess has caused a lot of sympathy when it was first introduced. However, unfortunately, the lack of content broke it all, leaning heavily towards an unclear fantasy element throughout the series made many fans bored.
Yashahime: Princess Half Demon
Yashahime is the sequel to the main Inuyasha anime, so it has received a lot of expectations from fans. The film follows the new adventures of the main cast, especially the daughter of Sesshomaru and Inuyasha. When it was first introduced, people had hoped that the series would feature the return of favorite characters from the original series and new twists and turns.
But even the basic thing that is reminiscent of old characters this anime can’t do. It changed the whole thing, introducing new characters and avoiding telling previous stories. This makes the audience feel alienated and disappointed.
The Promised Neverland Ss2
The Promised Neverland is an anime adaptation of the popular manga of the same name. The first television anime season produced by CloverWorks premiered from January to March 2019 and received a lot of praise from the audience, especially fans of this manga. Following the momentum of success, The Promised Neverland season 2 was scheduled to be released right after the end of part 1. And then after much anticipation, the Promised Neverland season 2 was delayed several times due to the pandemic causing fans ” restlessness”.
However, contrary to expectations and excitement, The Promised Neverland season 2 was “stoned” due to the visuals and especially for cutting too many details in the original manga. Many people also think that this part 2 is like a video summary of the plot, not giving fans anything.
Takt op. Destiny
Takt op. Destiny was created by MAPPA and MadHouse to promote the mobile game of the same name. It’s clearly gotten a lot of attention from MAPPA’s fanbase since the studio’s 10th anniversary event.
However, right from the first episodes, the anime showed signs of making fans unhappy. The film has a very small cast of characters, the content is very simple, the context is extremely sketchy like the way it deploys the content and exploits the characters. Viewers easily feel Takt op. Destiny has no focus, it’s just a bunch of sloppy cutscenes. From the main characters to the villains, they are not outstanding and unconvincing in both action motives and influence. Many people commented that this anime is a point of overlap of MAPPA after a series of quality products.
Platinum End is based on the manga by Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba – the artist and writer behind Death Note. Because of that, many fans have high expectations. But so far, Platinum End has been a huge disappointment. The series follows a young man who tries to take his own life, but ends up being rescued by an angel and sent into a survival game where the winner becomes God.
It is considered to have a large launch pad, beautiful graphics, and famous voice actors, but the film still cannot raise the level to the same level as the previous works of the authors. Platinum End has a number of issues that prevent it from being a quality series when it comes to breaking the original. The battles, the cast of characters, the plot are blurred without highlights. It can be seen that all the beauty of this anime has been ruined by the production studio.
Above are the top 5 anime that disappoint the audience the most in 2021, it’s surprising that many famous names appear on this list, right? And which movie do you regret the most, please let us know more opinions so we can discuss!
