Some shows are so bad that they’re good, like Apocalypse Zero. Some shows aren’t really all that bad, but they’re so mind-numbingly boring that they can’t help but seem like shit. And then, There’s Rio: Rainbow Gate!
R:RG is terrible. Some people might say it’s so bad it’s good, but it really isn’t. It’s just really really shitty. The reason why s because to me, it seems to just be propaganda for casinos and perhaps a certain Pichinko game, and that’s what makes it so bad: It’s horrible propaganda. My decision to never go to a casino is only strengthened by watching this anime. Not only that, but I’ve not seen one rainbow gate in the whole damn episode.
Remember the last episode of Akikan? How shitty it was? This felt the same.
That said, Rio: Rainbow Gate! might be a show that I may continue to watch, mainly because I think it has a very very very good chance of getting a rating of a 1. For the record, I have still not given an anime the supreme low rating of a 1, although I have been giving some thought to the subject. Lately, I’ve been debating rating the anime that I’ve dropped. Honestly, it’s not really fair to rate something without finishing it, but the fact that I dropped them must mean that they sucked, right? Shouldn’t that be a factor? If I could finish a show, then certainly it can’t be bad enough to achieve a 1 on my ratings scale? Right? I don’t know what to do here, so instead of leaving it up to me, I’ll leave it up to you:
