Twelve Days of Anime #9 (Fifth Worst Anime of 2015) — Silicon Valley This Show Is Not

Fumiaki Maruto wasn’t exactly on my good side after his contribution to the noitamina timeslot (and by the way, you know a year is bad when that mess doesn’t make it onto the worst list), so when his next anime makes me go “what the fucking hell happened?”, you know that there’s no God in this world. With a plot that’s practically nothing but a bunch of disjointed set pieces and shitty drama CDs tied together with a “big corporation vs. the working class” message so shallow you’d break your head diving into it, this utter mess is the living embodiment of everything I hate about VN anime as well as the sort of aggressive unchallenging mediocrity that anime fans will defend to the death because “it feels good”, which always translates in my mind as “I have very low standards and I have a yo-yo where my brain is supposed to be”. 

Add in characters whose biggest contribution to the narrative ending up as nothing higher than shipping fodder, along with music so bland it makes me wonder how this could be the same guy who composed Haikyuu’s OST, and I see no reason why Classroom Crisis is any less deserving of its spot at fifth place on the shitty spectrum.

  1. I notice good animes have better soundtracks than bland animes, who knew that composers also draw inspiration from the stories themselves.

    And “which always translates in my mind as “I have very low standards and I have a yo-yo where my brain is supposed to be”. ” is best quote of the year right here.

  2. Shipping fodder, eh? After that stupidly forced love triangle towards the end of the show, I guess that’s one way to describe them.

    You were comparing this to R;N but I have to ask; which one is better in your eyes?
