    If you want to see an amazing adaptation, look at “One Punch Man”

    By God, they butcher the plot and put more emphasis on the "plot"

    It's an alternative story

    The Diabolik Lovers anime is pretty bad (and the English dub is hilariously bad though) considering that it's like 5 mins per episode so it's impossible to coherently adapt the entire story.

    Also, Record of Ragnarok; a battle anime will always be held back by bad/no animation.

    It's too hard to choose, it just feels like directors are competing to make anime adaptations as bad as possible.

    I really wonder what goes through their heads. Like I understand budget can be an issue, I understand some things may need censoring for TV audience. I understand being animation, you may need to fill some stuff in because it would look weird otherwise outside of manga/novel format.

    What I don't understand is why directors choose to make changes to the original content that completely breaks the plot or make no sense. Or why they choose to cut out the best scenes only to put in complete filler that is downright boring. It's like you have chocolate, and they add pepper to it. Maybe the directors are trying to show their "creativity" but instead of adding to it, they shit all over it

    The promised neverland season 2. Season 1 was great but season 2 was just a butchered fest powerpoint slideshow.

    World trigger is about the most painful anime adaptation I’ve seen in a long while.

    There are so many hallmarks of bad adaption:
    - Slow dripfed plot (to stall for the manga story)
    - Really cheap animation (sometimes they pad out the show with literal yelling)
    - Endless flashbacks (Taking a cue from other shows to save money)
    - Lots of recaps (Pretty sure no one actually needs these)
    - Sometimes literal photo stills (basically a jpeg on the screen and then voice lines play)

    And much more but you get the picture.

    Diabolik Lovers allotted each episode with three minutes of opening and ending themes and the other ten or so minutes of obnoxious bloodsucking ASMR because all of the vampires acted like complete bell ends, treating the girl like she is their local blood donation center.
    The girl was absolutely annoying to watch since she was consequently well on her way to becoming anemic, yet had no intention of stopping them despite not giving any of them consent to any of this.

    If the original writers meant for vampires to be an allegory for abuse, then the anime adapted it perfectly.
