Most of you reading this post have probably watched a lot of anime and not all of those shows could objectively be considered good. Whether the problem is the animation, the story, the characterizations, the blatant racism or a combination of them all, there are some serious issue with whatever you just watched.

Neo Denmark’s Mermaid Gundam
Neo Mexico’s Tequila Gundam
Neo Netherland’s Nether Gundam
