40 Seasons in 40 Days: Summer 2005

Finally, I get an excuse to use this image again.

Normally, it would be easy to say a season containing something with a MAL rating below 2.9 would by default be the worst season ever. That’s a bit unfair, though it probably makes bottom 5 because of it. There’s a lot of stuff here, a couple of which I didn’t feel like burning my clothing and take a long cold shower afterwards. Alright, that’s exaggerating just a bit.

The Worst Stuff I Have Ever Watched #1

14 in the comedy death pool?

Who had 3:14 in the comedy death pool?

Mars of Destruction

Strengths:

  • Less than 20 minutes in length.
  • Remarkably, someone actually got work after appearing in this
  • From a production standpoint, the music budget of zero looks a real bargain
  • Unintentional comedy level of 88 out of 100.

Weaknesses:

  • Public domain music is actually the best aspect of the sound
  • Amateurish directing complete with a plot that can be described as the destitute man’s Evangelion.
  • Looping animation…in something that lasts 20 minutes…Jesus wept.
  • I’ve already spent more time on this post than I did watching it

In conclusion, you pretty much have an adaptation of a game which combines too many genres, directed by someone by someone who watched the entire Gainax back catalogue in the week before production started, but still did not know what they are doing, dialogue which sounds as though someone put a towel over the mic, BGM which could probably be improved by using my random classical playlist and pretty much failing at every sort of conceptual level possible. Yet, I don’t think this is the worst thing I could ever watch.

Any suggestions on what I should masochistically subject myself to next can be put in the comments…assuming anyone actually reads this.
