What. A. Letdown. Japanese site Anime Portal polled fans in Japan, asking them which Spring 2016 shows disappointed them the most. Nearly a thousand votes were cast (954, to be exact), and here are the ten that garnered the most, well, disappointment.

I guess these are shows people in Japan were looking forward to, but when they saw them, they didn’t feel as though they were satisfying for whatever reason.

Anyway, have a look:

10. Asterisk War Second Season: 30 votes

9. Endride: 33 votes

8. Terra Formars Revenge: 34 votes

6. Cerberus: 37 votes

6. Tanaka-kun is Always Listless: 37 votes

5. Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress: 42 votes

4. Ace Attorney: 61 votes

3. Bungo Stray Dogs: 98 votes

2. The Lost Village: 128 votes

1. My Hero Academia: 150 votes

The fascinating thing is comparing these results to our reader poll which gauged your favorite anime of this past spring. It’s like the complete opposite.
