There are subjectives, and then there are these. While you may believe a work fits here, and you might be right, people tend to have rather vocal, differing opinions about this subject.
Please keep these off of the work's page.
When we think about Asian animation, we usually think about anime and the like. But there's an awful lot of the rest of Asia, with an awful lot of animated series... and Sturgeon's Law applies to them as much as anything. Not to be confused with horrible anime, which goes here.
Important Note: Merely being offensive in its subject matter is not sufficient. Hard as it is to imagine at times, there is a market for all types of deviancy (no matter how small a niche it is). It has to fail to appeal even to that niche to qualify as this.
Kiara The Brave Mockbuster
Examples (more-or-less in alphabetical order):
Kiara The Brave Movie
- The Adventures of Panda Warrior (originally known as The Adventures of Jin Bao) is a terrible Kung Fu Panda ripoff with terrible animation; a nonsensical, needlesly complicated, and boring story that has more in common with The Wizard of Oz or The Chronicles of Narnia than Kung Fu Panda; and terrible voice acting. It also wastes the talents of Rob Schneider, Haylie Duff, Tom Kenny, various anime voice actors (namely Spike Spencer), and even Norm MacDonald of all people. To top it all off, it ends with everyone dancing to a pop song called 'Miracle', and even two characters who died earlier in the movie come back to life for the end with no explanation!
- Ali Baba & the Gold Raiders has laughably amateurish animation that changes from a bad style to a worse one every 20 seconds, with hand-drawn characters incongruously imposed over a 3D background ('Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves' did that better with 1937 technology!). Despite being set in the Scheherazade mythos, a guy wearing a Batman t-shirt and a fat dude with sunglasses and a mohawk is seen at one point, telling us just how seriously the filmmakers are treating the source material. The plot is ridiculous, with many characters behaving like idiots, there is a plagiarized version of 'Prince Ali' from Aladdin, and it has the stupidest ending ever: The main villain being tied up and yelled at to get out, despite the fact he's tied up...and then the words 'Alibaba & The Gold Raiders' appear on the screen and the credits roll. With all that in mind, it's no wonder why Godfrey Ho's last video he directed was this back in 2002, as well as why it's the only known thing the Indonesian Bening Studio and Gabah Studio Yogyakarta ever put out.Marzgurl reviews it here, and Phelous, Allison Pregler, Brad Jones, and Harry Partridge give another review here. Saberspark calls it the worst film he's ever seen, beating out a long-standing notion with Trolland being the worst, until he saw Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale.
- Beauty and Warrior, dubbed 'The Worst Anime Ever' on YouTube, is what happens when you let a financial company make a movie that's not just a commercial. It has deplorable dubbing, abysmal animation, and painfully obvious overuse of Stock Footage. The plot is boring, incomprehensible, and almost nonexistent. Its most glaring flaw, however, is that it only has two or three character designs. The only difference between the two brothers, for instance, is eye color. The movie's one 'saving grace' is that it's only about 50 minutes long. The camera has a seizure every time a plot twist happens. There's a lot of random zooming on people's shocked, slack-jawed faces, and those shots are held for a while, in a way that sticks out even given where the film was produced. note It's also considered the penultimate film released by IFD Films, with the aforementioned Ali Baba & The Gold Raiders being their last film overall. Marzgurl reviews it here.
- Blue Seagull is an obscure South Korean animated movie from 1994 that suffers from poor recycled animation, an incoherent story, unnecessary sex scenes that add nothing to the story except possibly a rape, uninteresting and bland characters, weak pacing, quick jump cuts, and incomprehensible English subtitles. The only thing of worth is the behind-the-scenes footage of animators slaving away at the movie during the end credits, and the beautiful credits music. Watch BobSamurai's review.
- Kiara the Brave poses as an obviousmockbuster of Pixar's Brave, filled with the terribly dated and jerky CGI animation, child-pandering dialogue, and weak voice acting that we've come to expect from titles like these. But what makes a title like this in particular so horrible is that it isn't based on Brave at all while the ripoff heroine is on the box, the movie is a total Bait-and-Switch. It turns out this movie was actually released in 2011 under the name Super K, and the princess character was marketed to fool people into thinking it was related to the more recent movie. The real movie is centered around an unsubtle plot making reference to global warming involving a superpowered Indian child who can control the weather. It's terrible too, but at least it's not pretending to be something it isn't. Cinematic Excrement took a look at this garbage so you don't have to. MikeJhad a go at it as well, as did Bobsheaux.
- The King of Tibetan Antelope is a 2010 animated miniseries by Shenzen Films. The plot is about a young Tibetan antelope who wanders off to the 'Way of the Antelope's Home' with friends after losing his mother. The problem is not the plot (which, albeit not too original, could have been interesting), but rather the execution: Basically, it's too reminiscent of two Disney features, replacing Bambi's deer with antelope (the antelope's faces are very similar to the faces of the lions in The Lion King), and directly lifting the 'Circle of Life' sequence, the Pride Rock pose, the orphan plot element, and so forth from The Lion King. Characters are Cel Shaded, making the series look like a cheap and flat-out attempt to achieve traditional animation visuals, the environments are computer-generated and don't blend at all with the characters, and most of the animations have very little sense of scale, depth, and movement - for example, when the walking animation of an adult antelope stops in poor timing after her model's movement in the beginning. Here is a video of the first episode with English subtitles. Fortunately, the 2015 film has a more decent plot and much better art to the point of Scenery Porn. This film adaptation has become a minor Cult Classic courtesy of a YouTube upload, which can be watched here.
- The Legend of Kung Fu Rabbit (Tu Xia Chuan Qi), a Chinese film that is very obviously a Kung Fu Pandamockbuster (one of the characters is even named Shifu, though that may be accidental since 'shifu' literally means 'Master' in Chinese), only with a rabbit who looks like a mix of Miyamoto Usagi, Richard Watterson, and a Moogle. The cast includes Jon Heder, who voices the titular Rabbit with a Simpleton Voice, and Rebecca Black, the singer of 'Friday'. It's also loaded with Padding, as it takes 60 minutes into this 90-minute 'action movie' for the protagonist to even make a fist, and he only fights for 30 seconds at the end of the movie. It has a 3.3 on IMDb, a 2/5 on Redbox, and this review gave it a D-plus. Watch the trailer here. Prestigious Panda Productions reviews it here and Regularjosh1 takes a look at it here.
- Legend of The Condor Hero, an anime adaptation of Jin Yong's The Return of the Condor Heroesnote . Note that only the first 26 episodes were actually made by Nippon Animation. This is due to production issues, low ratings, and glaring deviations from the source material, forcing them to hand over the series to Hong Kong-based studio Jade Animation to animate the remaining 52 episodes while Nippon are only responsible for the character designs. As a result the series suffered from a huge drop in quality; namely stiff and reused animations (especially in the Siege of Xiangyang arc due to featuring hordes of Mongol soldiers), same bland soundtrack used over and over again to the point of being tiresome, Off-Model close-ups making dramatic moments narmy, and pacing even slower than the anime episodes. Only a select few post-Nippon episodes are better-drawn, but the special effects look fake and did not blend well with the animation style. The only saving grace is that the Hong Kong episodes are closer to the original novel and Jade Animation actually cleaned up some mess the anime made with the continuity (such as the absence of Huang Yaoshi) because they had more episodes allocated for them.
- Mustafa and the Magician is a computer-animated movie produced by Pentamedia Graphics and distributed by Shemaroo (who are also responsible for the aformentioned Kiara the Brave). Originally released in 2003 as Son of Alladin and re-edited for release in 2016, it hardly looks it as the animation consists of awkward and herky-jerky Motion Capture (many of the characters look detailed to the point ofcreepy) that would've barely passed muster on the PlayStation 2. The writing isn't much better; not only does the plot move at a sluggish pace but (among other things) the run-of-the-millvillainous wizard's goal of trying to kill Alladin's son in order to reign supreme or else get defeated is ripped off from Hercules and Mustafa himself is a generic hero at best and an ethically dubious protagonist atworst (to name a couple examples, he stalks the princess, even when she'staking a bath, and proclaims his intent to vie for her hand in marriage after she clearly states how upset she is with it). Even worse, the 2016 version being edited down considerably causes the film to make less sense, one example being a song from the original celebrating Mustafa's transition to adulthood being removed which causes him to seemingly grow out of the blue. And to top it all off, the English dub is dreadful, with inconsistent volume levels and most every character sounding uninterested. Saberspark reviewed it and declared it was so bad that he (begrudgingly) declared Leo the Lion is no longer the worst animated film on Netflix. More baffling than the movie itself is that Pentamedia actually submitted the Mustafa and the Magician version to the Oscarsnote , making it one of only two known animated films considered Horrible to be an entry for that award (the other being The Emoji Movie).
- Shen Shou Jing Gang (also known as Celestial Warriors) is clearly a rip-off of a certainpopular show. The main hero is the Yellow Ranger (though to be fair, since the show uses The Four Gods, it's obvious that he's meant to be the Yellow Dragon, which is kind of the king of those beasties). Have we mentioned the awful CG yet, or the absurdly cheap 2D animation, or how the two are sometimes incongruent (the chubby Blue Ranger's CG model has the same body type as his fellows)? And why hasn't its licensing agent noticed what it rips off? More info.
- Space Thunder Kids, a Korean animated movie about the Dark Empire trying to conquer the universe and three children try to stop them with their Humongous Mechas. Of course, the movie follows the plot very loosely as it Jump Cutsoften, leaving the story with a lot of unanswered questions. Off-Model plagues this movie as characters (many of which are blatant anime Captain Ersatzes) are constantly drawn differently and have very strange facial expressions. The whole incoherent mess was made by copypasting eight different movies, including Mockbusters of Mazinger Z and TRON. The only redeeming factor about this movie is the occasional bits of weirdness note such as funny faces, random plot points thrown in and out, and the infamous tank scene.
- Tales in Mushroom Village is a 2009-10 CGI animated series by 'Anhui Lister 3D Animation' from China. It's filled with anthropomorphic animals who look unintentionally grotesque (the yellow one has a strange resemblance to a Pikachu). The series comes with sloppy animation, scary-looking movements, and unrealistic effects (one scene even has some gameplay footage of The King of Fighters 97, likely for the sole reason of the game being very popular in China), and the characters' faces are dull and too detailed. Here is the trailer and the description.
- Thunder Prince. A Korean animated Cliché Storm that makes the Inheritance Cycle look original, it contains inconsistent character designs that make Jack Chick's shittier illustrations look like Dave Gibbons', and a spectacularly gory scene of the sidekick monkey playing around with the aqueous humors of a snake's eyeballs, which the creators felt the need to flashback to for no apparent reason. The Big Bad undergoes instantaneous Badass Decay, and the back of the tape gives away the ending.
- The Malaysian animation series Ultraman: The Animation seems to take everything we know about Tsubaraya's epic Ultra Series and drop it on its head. With franchise favorite Ultraman Taro being reduced to little more than a laughing stock Cloud Cuckoolander, a generic Excuse Plot involving a monster reviving other monsters, characters that have no importance to the plot whatsoever getting far more attention than the supposed main cast, what appear to be Original Characters and recolors strewn everywhere, and characters that just won't stop talking, you'd be far better off watching the Tsuburaya-approved Upin & Ipin Ultraman episodes.
- Xu You Ji, a company that Chinese families can supposedly pay $275 to feature their child in a movie, has gained infamy in recent years for its poor eye-burning productions.
- The example linked here not only completely rips off the mecha from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and bizarrely uses the cast from Monsters vs. Aliens as the villains, it also features horrible CG-rendered kid protagonists in plugsuits. Moreover, it uses music from Code Geass and Mobile Suit Gundam 00 in fairly inappropriate times (the music that plays during a certain character's death scene in Code Geass, for example, is used as the opening song). All in all, the unnerving combination of Uncanny Valley children and countless copyright violations has attracted much hate across the entire internet and led to demands to shut down the company. Here's an overview of their productions.
- Another notorious work from Xu You Ji features a girl becoming a mermaid. At the beginning, the villain arrives and petrifies the girl's unicorn, but the girl is transformed by the company's mascot angels into a mermaid to an underwater adventure, before returning to the surface and thwarting the villain. Nearly everything underwater is stolen, considering that the backgrounds and most sea creatures are from Finding Nemo and there is music from The Little Mermaid.
