Anime Challenge Day 5: Anime I’m Ashamed I Enjoyed.

The Lost Village


The series doesn’t make a lick of sense at all.  The story was all over the place, the characters were cliché, the graphics and cg were bad, and nobody died despite Lost Village being some kind of horror story.  It failed on so many accounts that I still can’t believe that it exists.  Yet, I still loved watching it.  I loved watching the craziness from episode to episode because I never knew what to expect or how bad the show could go.  It was amazingly terrible and I am ashamed of enjoying it.


  1. I liked how The Lost Village started but my frustrations with the plot and characters meant by half-way I wasn’t having any fun with this series anymore. That said, I tend to like bad horror (particularly movies) where I know everything is terrible (characters, dialogue, story, effects). I find them amusing and relaxing to watch and in honesty I’d binge bad horror all day rather than read or watch a classic when I’m in a bad mood.

    1. Something about watching something crappy when we’re in a bad mood just works. Like that guy in Hotel Transylvania who watches Twilight right after things end badly with his vampire love. Or when we sold one of the puppies and I discovered my version of going out to get drunk apparently consisted of going to watch that last Fantastic Four movie. I’m sure there must be something psychological there like, “Life is crappy right now, so I’m going to observe the crap for a moment.”

      1. That’s probably true. I know when I’m feeling really down and I’m not yet ready for a healing and happy story, I regularly turn to trash action or horror stories to just kind of wallow in the awfulnesses of the moment before I start trying to turn it around.
