Anything from 4Kids. I also didn't like Cowboy Bebop.

Any Japanese Transformers series. God, they're so awesome.
actually, don't know about the Beast Wars spinoffs, but the G1 sequels..oh god..

I haven't watched enough anime to think "this is the worst I've ever and will ever see." Typically, if I'm watching an anime, its because it looks good, I've heard good things about it, and have like a 90% assurance that it won't suck.

But some pretty bad ones are Big O, Naruto, Ghost in the Shell, Reign, umm...haven't watched any anime in so long, been longer since I've watched bad anime, so the list is a bit incomplete.

Any show done by 4kids, and Dragonball GT was HORRIBLE IMO, but I liked Dragonball, and almost loved DragonBall Z (I started getting into it around when Buu came into the Picture.)

WHAT!?! Those are some of the best anime shows (American Naruto=Fail)
Reign I never heard of but the other were pretty good.

It's just a type of cartoon, I don't see what makes the fact that it's japanese better than american cartoons. People who watch something just because it's an anime annoy me. Pinky and the Brain totally whoops anime's ass, but you don't see a bunch of Pinky and the Brain freaks all over the place.
:roll: That's like saying, "I don't like movie buffs. Besides, it's all a bunch of people running around on a screen, there's no difference between any of them." Anime is VERY different from American cartoons; that's precisely why it's a genre all it's own. Sure, there are some sucky ones out there, but the majority of anime is meant to tell a story, get across a political/philosophical message of some sort, etc., which is the exact opposite of what most American cartoons try to do, and that's get a laugh out of the audience; and when anime does try to form a comedic presence, the Japanese culture handles it quite differently than our normal comedy. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing bad about a good 'ol Saturday morning slapstick, but it's borderline stupid to compare anime and American cartoons on a "Cartoon vs. Cartoon" basis.

anime = japanese animation generally speaking, and american shows that are animated in the style of anime usually kinda suck, because they are just crappy american shows with a little japanese style thrown on top! not to say all anime is good by any means but you get the idea
It's generally Japanese because they animate in that style most.

And Teen Titans isn't the best anime ever, but it's certainly not the worst.
Why is it that every time I post in a thread, it dies?

wikipedia wrote:In English, main dictionary sources define anime as "a Japanese style of motion-picture animation" or "a style of animation developed in Japan".[12] Thus, non-Japanese works are sometimes called anime-influenced animation if they borrow stylistically from Japanese animation.

Influenced. Key word. NOT ANIME!

No man, Prince of Tennis is SWEET! :P Seriously, it's one of my favorite shows. You just have to look at it for what it is, and not take it seriously. Sure, it's like DBZ with tennis sometimes, but it's a cool show, and they've got a lot of balls for making something so different.

4kids is edit crazy. What they did to One Piece is... ugh! Good thing Cartoon Network started showing a drastically different, not retarded One Piece last Saturday.

dont get me started on 4kids, they ruin all they touch! they take decent (or even exelent) shows and suck all the good stuff out of them, and a lot of them have HORRIBLE dubs too, really really bad 4KIDS FTL
