So, here are the best and the worst adaptations of the season, in my opinion. Could elaborate more, but it would be too much of a personal opinion post rather than a general one.

Top 5:
  1. Kokoro Connect
  2. Shinsekai Yori
  3. Accel World
  4. Fate/Zero
  5. Hyouka
Worst 5:
  1. Dakara Boku wa H
  2. Onii-Ai
  3. Kore wa Zombie desu ka, Jigoku Hen
  4. Zero no Tsukaima F
  5. Campione!

So, what about you guys? What were the best, and what were the worst?
(P-S: SAO was bad.)
Edit: Just like Arczyx said, CHuu2 has been maybe too heavily modified to be called an “adaptation”.

  1. SAO – for me, it would be “it’s shit” or “it’s the shit”, lol. Depends on who’s hating and who’re the fanboys~ XD

  2. Chuunibyou is definitely a good anime, but I don’t know if it can be called as a good “adaptation”, considering the anime differs very greatly from the LN.

  3. @Arczyx True. At first, I was thinking that it should be OK as long as the anime simply screwed around with the events to make them more enjoyable, like Onii-Ai (except for the fact that it wasn’t), I would consider it as a good adaptation. But Chuu2 is quite a bit off the mark, so I’ll replace it by anoter title.

    @bishbosh Not the worst, but still shit.

  4. I think on SAO, you find it bad or good depending on what you were looking for. Some might be pleasantly surprise while others simply didn’t like it.

  5. Best: Accel World, Kokoro Connect and Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon.
    Worst: Kore wa Zombie desu ka? Jigoku Hen (I really enjoyed it, but the events jumped around too much), Campione (somewhat lacking and kinda ridiculous (especially with THAT kissing scene) and Oda Nobuna (too repetitive/predictable and couldn’t really get into it).

  6. well in my opinion the best is kokoro connect and hyouka..for the worst is onii-ai (eventough it’s funny but it skip to much events in LN) and champione (i have no idea how can i explain it crapyness)

  7. Best: Seitokai no Ichizon Lv.2;Hyouka;K-Project;Sakurasou;BTOOOM!
    I don’t really hate any anime but if i must chose maybe i’ll chose Bakuman 3 or SAO.

  8. Kira how the hell you can post a blog? Can I contribute? Also blasphemous for saying Kore wa Zombie desu ka, Jigoku Hen in your worst list as having Eucliwood as your avatar! But yeah my top three would be Fate/Zero, Nisemonogatari, and Seitokai no Ichizon S2.

  9. I did not read most of LN from the list but one that I did read and found out very similar to LN is High School DxD

  10. >Also blasphemous for saying Kore wa Zombie desu ka, Jigoku Hen in your worst list as having Eucliwood as your avatar!

    This list was the best and worst anime ADAPTATIONS, it is NOT whether or not you like any specific series. Do not confuse it, please.

  11. Welp, this blog looks dead. Wonder why BT couldn’t just recruit one of its registrated members to at least post regularly here, be it LN, Anime, or Manga.

    Oh and no offense, but IMO the “Best or worse shows” thing is kinda redundant topic cause it’s a highly subjective matter and does not invite too much meaningful discussions. Better make something more informative such as LN ranking in Japan or KonoRano

  12. not trying to say anything here and to show that somebody actually read anything here 1/2 year after the last comment and commented on something. Wait, that means that i can write whatever i want without anyone noticing!


  13. And thus, it’s proven you have failed – You have been spotted! (Draw a red exlamation mark above my head, would you~) Even if it does happen months later.

    And yeah, the topic is a bit of a bad choice, if one wants to keep the conversation going.
    Especially with time moving on and turning those animes of the season into old ones. 😉

  14. SAO translation bahasa Indonesia Jilid 14 bab13(last chapter) ‘missing’ .. could u fix it? Plzzz..
