* ''Anata to Scandal'' has some golden moments here and there but it's problem is that the story doesn't seem to know what it wants to be. Tomoka is your OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent piano genius who sees a {{Bishonen}} every day on the train to school and has fallen in love with him. One day her friends notice that this crush has gone to StalkerWithACrush levels as she has brought a {{camera|fiend}} to school and is going to secretly take a picture next time she sees him. That afternoon a man gropes her and she's saved by another {{Bishonen}} in front of her crush and after police arrest the man and the boys leave on the next train she takes a picture of her crush. Later she goes to a party and the boys are members of the band playing there. They recognize her and stamp her a pervert, she gets drunk, and finds out that her crush is in fact a {{Bifauxnen}}, but her feelings doesn't disappear and her ChildhoodFriend falls in love with her. So our now BiTheWay heroine finds the thought of others being lesbian gross yet still has no problem being one herself. The other band members fall for her making it an awkward LoveDodecahedron. The {{Bifauxnen}} is seemingly {{asexual}}, but starts falling for her twice as old [[ArrangedMarriage fiance]] after he kept her [[StockholmSyndrome captive]] for a few days. It keeps on going back on forth whether it wants to be a YuriGenre or not making it a mess of UnfortunateImplications that unintentionally CrossesTheLineTwice that one might keep on reading wondering "how will this mess end?!". Tomoka herself is an unlikeable character who is supposed to be a SpoiledSweet character but ends up with a weird mix of {{wangst}} and {{gayngst}} and is seemingly a {{Sociopath}}.

* The studio Knack Productions produced many of these (although some of their shows, such as the ''Literature/TheLittlePrince'' anime, were successful). The most infamous example by far is ''Anime/ChargemanKen'', which really must be seen to be believed. It would have been long forgotten had it not been for one person uploading the DVD re-release of it on NicoNicoDouga, and the nonsensical {{narm}} has undergone extreme {{memetic mutation}} since. Two episodes in particular are infamous: one where Ken's sister obsesses over a football-star whose every line has become a CatchPhrase[=/=]meme who begs Ken to show him his "Charging-Go" (episode 4, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2zxWiGCHx4 English subs]]), and another where Ken uses a kidnapped scientist as a human bomb to get rid of some aliens (episode 35, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsoaHMOp5uM English sub]]).

* ''Anime/AngelCop'': even when not taking into account its ridiculous and over-the-top profanity-ridden dub, the series as a whole isn't much better. It's filled with buckets of blood, and a stupid plot that shows what could happen if the Jews take over America, and the newly Communist America attempts to take over the world. It's up to Japan to stop them with their awesome technology! Also, the main [[EvilIsSexy sexpot]] villain looks more like a man in drag than anything else. The show is stupid and weird in every way, but that's what makes it such a blast to watch!
* ''Anime/BloodC'' is so rife with {{Narm}}, {{Idiot Ball}}s, and ridiculously over the top violence that shatters the WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief that most viewers consider the anime better as a comedy than any sort of serious drama or suspense series. [[MemeticMutation BEST COMEDY OF THE YEAR, MAN!!]]

* For all the anticipation, the general consensus of ''Anime/BlazblueAlterMemory'' is that it's this, due to the generally low-quality animation and lacklustre fight scenes - it's an anime [[VideoGame/{{Blazblue}} based on a fighting game]], it has no excuse for boring fight scenes.

* ''Anime/CrossAnge'' [[UpToEleven takes this by a milestone]]. The show has a lot of over the top humor and scenes and keeps on getting more insane as time goes on with a lot of the common cliches of anime but goes batshit-insane with them with constant amounts of fanservice in every episode. It also has the attitude of [[PrecisionFStrike fuck you]] in how it tells a story about controversial topics. The post-credit ending also ends up parodying itself making jokes about running content in the show. It's compared to watching a train-wreck in how it's awful to watch but so stupid you can't help but love it.

* ''Manga/MadBull34'' is either one of the most terrible anime ever made... Or one of the AWESOMEST. Sure, it's sleazy as hell, but it's also rendered unintentionally hilarious thanks to a combination of the English voice acting, some animation errors, and the fact a good chunk of what happens onscreen could only be described as sheer insanity. [[spoiler: Among some of the crazier moments: the main character tying grenades to his pubes during a stakeout, that same character FLIPPING A APC, and quite possibly the biggest over-reaction to a grocery store robbery EVER.]]
* ''Anime/MarsOfDestruction'', a short tie in to an [[AdaptationDisplacement obscure dating game]], universally has some of the lowest ratings on almost any major Anime Site (Website/AnimeNewsNetwork, MyAnimeList, etc). Despite this, many will deem it to be so bad it's good with its obvious {{shout out}}s to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', horribly stiff animation, virtually no conceivable plot, and bad dialogue. People have given it Perfect Scores and written reviews of how much they enjoyed it.

* ''Anime/NinjaSlayer''. Based on a novel written by a couple OccidentalOtaku, released on the web, and featuring cardboard-cutout animation. The saving graces are how over-the-top and [[HamAndCheese delightfully hammy]] it is.

The plot goes OffTheRails by the second episode. Barely anybody in the cast can think logically. It's overloaded with anime cliches as well as twists on the same, {{Camp}}, {{Narm}} and NarmCharm...and it's a laugh riot, whether intentionally (as some have argued) or unintentionally. Gloriously so.

* ''Hoshi no ko Polon'' (''Starchild Polon''), like ''Anime/ChargemanKen'' above, has also gone through (albeit minor) MemeticMutation on NicoNicoDouga. In addition to its horrid animation and nonsensical storyline (if there's any "story" at all) are the constant use of stock music composed by Jean Jacques Perrey.
