Because as much as I love anime, I can’t honestly be expected to watch every damn thing that comes out. This is especially true when they’re not just shounen but blatantly for little kids. First up is Element Hunters, so dull that even 3x speed couldn’t keep my interest. Then why bother, you ask? Just to be complete.
Excited?! I AM!

The anime will be a science-fiction adventure aimed at children to teach chemical elements. The project is a joint production between Japan and Korea for both television and merchandising.
Oh, I would love Korean and Japanese cooperation to erase centuries of bad blood, but this anime just proves that the unholy alliance is an affront to the animu gods. I mean–it’s like incestual!
Just look at this ugly baby. And I guess I can appreciate the effort to educate, but you gotta wonder if any of the pseudo-information (I can’t imagine a show like this being scientifically accurate) tossed around in this show will be of any use to the average 5-10 year old watching it.
A Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) is a state of matter of a dilute gas of weakly interacting bosons confined in an external potential and cooled to temperatures very near to absolute zero (0 K, −273.15 °C, or −459.67 °F). Under such conditions, a large fraction of the bosons collapse into the lowest quantum state of the external potential, and all wave functions overlap each other, at which point quantum effects become apparent on a macroscopic scale.
…right. Back to the animation quali-
Come on, you guys couldn’t be assed to draw toes for it? Fine, fine, let’s go back to the ‘edutainment’–FUCK!
I can’t take this anymore, let’s wrap this up.
Yep. This was not what I signed up for. Sigh, I wanted some real shounen chemistry action.
Anyway, our next contestant is Needless. Courtesy of ANN:
In the near future, mankind has suffered from a Third World War, leaving extreme damage all over and forced mankind to become even more distinct from their species. The world was at chaos and from this chaos comes a new species: “Needless”. The Needless are humans who have contracted a “disease” as humans may call them, and allow them to wield extraordinary powers far superior to any mankind. Their abilities include Telekinesis, elemental powers, gravity control, adaptation, radioactive release and all manners of scientific impossibility.
I R EXCITED. COME ON DOWN, NEEDLESS!
Gurren Lagann? I thought I said Needless.
God damn it, Gurren Lagann, I thought I told you guys to GTFO. Oh wait? You guys really are Needless? Oh right right… you guys don’t have mechas–you just have physical abuse of women.
In fact, you’re better than Gurren Lagann! You have yuri lolis for no apparent reason in your ED!
In fact, very naked lolis. I love how she’s so embarrassed that even her shoulder is blushing. Or maybe it’s a rash. Yeah, it’s probably a rash.
Does Gurren Lagann have that? Check and mate. Wait, it is this really supposed to be for kids?
Needless to say (ho ho ho), these shows suck ass.
