30 Day Anime Challenge – Day 5: An Anime I Am Ashamed I Enjoyed

Hello, Anifriends

Welcome back to the thirty-day anime challenge, and for today I’ll be talking about an anime that I am ashamed to have ever enjoyed. Oh, boy.


This category was a bit harder to answer, mostly because I have never been particularly ashamed of watching anime, especially when I was younger and my sense of shame was in its early stages of development. But after thinking about it for a while, I realize there is one show in particular that I really did not ever need to watch.

That anime is: Queens Blade. Uuuuuuuugggh….

Queen's Blade

Before I get the inevitable flood of criticism for even having watched the show, I will say 1) Even as a stupid fourteen-year-old, I never particularly thought the show was good, and 2) the only reason I got past the first episode is that it had a somewhat interesting premise, and honestly I just had nothing better to do(kind of wish I had been blogging back then just so I can see what fourteen-year-old me would have articulated).

Although to be fair to Queen’s Blade, it never was really worse than average. In fact, it probably sits somewhere right on top of mediocre. And for a Studio Arms production, it probably ranks in the upper half.

If you do not know anything else about Queen’s Blade other than the image above, do not look it up. It is literally not worth your time, and it really was not worth mine either. Its just sort of this awkward thing that I have to live with knowing that I watched and like, invested time into.


What anime are you most ashamed of having seen? Let me know in the comments below. Also, if you want to support the Aniwriter through donations or are just feeling generous, consider buying me a coffee on Ko-Fi. Otherwise, thanks for reading and bye for now, Friendos!
