Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation 2nd Season - A Disappointing Dive

Story (2/10): The story of the second season took an unfortunate and regrettable turn. Instead of building upon the rich narrative foundation laid by its predecessor, it delved into an uncomfortable and poorly executed theme: the main character's struggle with erectile dysfunction. This narrative choice not only felt inappropriate but also detracted from any meaningful plot development. It was a major letdown compared to the promising start of the series.

Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout - A Shallow Alchemical Tale  Story (4/10): The most significant disappointment with the anime adaptation is its storyline.
