Rent-a-Girlfriend and 5 other anime that have disappointed fans

Rent-a-Girlfriend(Kanojo, Okarishimasu) is one of the most popular manga and anime series in recent years, initially because it presented a new storyline with a lot of potential for a romantic comedy. Unfortunately, as time went by, this illusion that fans had for the show faded very quickly. Firstly because of the lack of romantic progress between the main characters and secondly because of the “princess-like” attitude of Kazuya, the male lead, as some fans like to call him.

That’s why “Rent-a-Girlfriend” has become one of the most disappointing anime and manga fans have watched and read in recent years and this time anime fans on Reddit have taken to naming, as well as listing those anime they regret watching or it disappointed them. So here we will present you a list of the most named in the forum:

#1 – Rent-a-Girlfriend

Rent A Girlfriend Portada 01

For Reddit fans, the first place goes to “Rent-a-Girlfriend” (Kanojo, Okarishimasu). The reasons for this are that, first, there is very little romantic development and when there is, fans complain that in the following chapters the protagonists “forget” that there was something between them. Secondly, Kazuya as the main character does not dare to take the step with Chizuru to advance the plot, and some fans call him a “coward”. Lastly, Mizuhara is not spared, she is labeled as a “flat protagonist with no charisma” and just takes advantage of Kazuya.

#2 – Tokyo Revengers

Tokyo Revengers: Tenjiku Arc Anunció Su Estreno En Increíble Avance

Tokyo Revengers” is also one of those disappointing anime for Reddit fans. The main complaint from anime enthusiasts is that while the time travel storyline is a fantastic premise, its execution is terrible. Mainly, the fault lies with Takemichi who is considered a “useless” with no development in the work, as he doesn’t train, doesn’t get physically stronger, doesn’t learn to fight and only gets beaten up by the other characters in the series.

#3 – Boruto


Naruto is one of the most beloved anime by fans, but not its sequel “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” which is “very disappointing” according to users. They comment that this is due firstly to a very inconsistent animation, secondly to Boruto as a character, which is only a “tantrum child” who wants attention from his father. And although he has some more development later in the work, it declines again due to plot decisions about Naruto and Sasuke which fans label as a “shadow” of what they were in the original anime.

#4 – Akame Ga Kill

Akame Ga Kill Akame Portada 0101

Akame Ga Kill” was also one of those mentioned in this discussion on Reddit. Mainly, fans said that it was a “nonsense” that all the main characters of the show ended up “cold” plus this situation was a very cheap and easy resort for the author, we talked about not giving more development or backstory to his characters. Also many did not like that the anime took a different ending than the manga, which was quite “worse than it already was”.

#5 – Solo Leveling

Solo Leveling

Just like “Rent-a-Girlfriend”, the hype for “Solo Leveling” was quite high on social media, but fans found its anime adaptation disappointing. Many users commented that this is due to a misconception about the work, as the only notable thing was its art in the original story and that it was a product of South Korea (manhwa) but that its plot was “just another cliché”. This idea was reinforced by another user who mentioned that last season “Solo Leveling” went unnoticed.

#6 – Sousou no Frieren

Frieren 1

Incredible as it may seem, “Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End” (Sousou no Frieren), the work that is competing very seriously to be the best anime of 2023-24, some fans have labeled it as “disappointing”. This is due, according to them, to the fact that they started watching the anime when it was halfway through the season of its first cour, since they were struck by the noise it was making in networks and forums. “A total mistake”, as they mention that they could not get past the first chapters, while their story they said was “slow, boring and with characters that did not contribute anything new”.

Quite an interesting list that anime fans on Reddit have shown us. So tell us in the comments section what you think about these titles if you liked them or if, on the contrary, you agree that they are quite “disappointing” works. Also, if you have any other anime that is not here, mention it too.
