Worst Mecha/Super Robot series you ever seen?

I'm just curious on peoples opinions of the worst Mecha/Super Robot series out there. I haven't seen enough to voice my opinion.

This will result in alot of flaming in the future. Anywho, I could just say the only one I ever enjoyed was the FMP series. Mecha just never was a big thing for me.

Of everything I've seen, the first thing that comes to mind is Gundam SEED DESTINY. I'm sure I probably don't need to explain why.

Oh, and if you want to count it, Kannazuki no Miko.

Kannazuki no Miko was one of my most painful anime experiences so I'll have to agree with that one. The only good parts was the opening/ending themes and when it was finally over.

I was under the impression that you liked it. Or do you just think it sucks from a mecha aspect?

The only one I can think of is Gundam Wing, and even then it wasn't mind-crunchingly horrible. At least Duo made the show somewhat interesting, even if his character is so absurd for a "war" story.

And this thread only makes me want to see Kannazuki no Miko for some reason, even though I know I shouldn't.

Upon further evaluation, I found that I only really liked the music from the series, I no longer care for the show beyond KOTOKO's music and some BGMs. But yes, at one point I did like KnM.

I bet I will eventually too even though I know I should avoid it. I think I'd have to say that the worst mecha show I've seen is Gundam SEED Destiny. It started off good, but then just went down the pooper really fast and just became a god awful show.

That also only makes me want to see it more, even though I absolutely hate SEED. The animation would bug me, however, as it makes the show seem more like an expensive Flash movie.

Kannazuki no Miko is a very good show, if you happen to be desperate to watch a yuri series. Which most yuri fans are. Though I'll admit the first... two thirds of the series were pretty terrible. And hardly anyone is satisfied with the ending. Apart from that, it's ok.

I don't know what the worst mecha show of all time is. I know that I probably haven't seen it. I also know that I want to watch Gingaizer to see if it's as bad as it looks. It's a 1970s mecha that has terrible transforming sequences (reminds me of a folding out armchair to make a sofa), terrible combination sequences (weird man-sex stacking; no-one tried to think this through), and it throws playing cards as its weapon. It looks terrible. I'd love to see at least one episode.

There is nothing wrong with that.

What about Dangaizer 3? The show blew me away by how badly it... blew.

lol Touche.

I wouldn't mind watching Ginguiser, it looks awesome. Sure it's no Zambot 3, but it's still a 70's super robot show. The budget was probably ****, what do you expect?

can we name video game series?.... though they probably all suck equally besides ZOE. (seriously.... why do some many mecha games suck?)

I liked the ending.... though it does kinda leave you wanting a mecha-less second season.

Gingaizer looks most excellent.

I don't know much about Dangaizer 3... with a title like that, were they trying to fool people into thinking it was a cross between Danguard Ace, Grendaizer and Zambot 3? That was my first thought...

I've also wanted to watch Saikyo Robo Daiouja, ever since I saw Isao Taira singing the opening in a Super Robot Spirits concert (he sings Ideon too). It's a fun song, and Isao Taira has eyes like Chiyo-chichi in Azumanga Daioh. All the audience chant "saikyo! saikyo! saikyo!" - it must be the best robot ever!
