AnimeNEXT 2019: Bad Anime Bad!




One of my favorite panels to sit in every year. I’ve been to this panel at least 3 years in a row. This year Bad Anime Bad celebrates its 18th season and its amazing to see it last so long in cons. Brian T. Price is still the host of the panel he created and still going strong. Last year we sat in the panel Bad Anime, Bad!! Panel at AnimeNEXT 2017 and it was just as fun. This year Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe In Santa was the spotlight and it was as you thought coming out of this panel BAD! This show came on in 2002 when The CW was WB, I needed to mention that for that walk down memory lane.

I remember watching just a snippet of this show when it aired on WB. I didn’t make it far into the show because 12-year old me wasn’t interested in any of this. I was a smart child for missing out on this and honestly sitting through this panel having to watch this as an adult I can’t even watch this with a straight face. Everything about this was hilarious and Brian made sure to point out all the faults of this show.

I found the entire episode of this show and wanted to share it with you guys to enjoy good hearty laughs out of this series.

The most interesting part of this entire show was the voice cast. The cast is all top voice actors of our childhood, it’s so hilarious that these top bill actors got on this project. My guess is that they recorded this and didn’t know what it was going to be used for.

These are a few of the voice actors in this project Mark Hamill, Jodi Benson, Nancy Cartwright, Paige O’Hara, Debra Wilson. These names should look familiar to us because a few of these people are staples of our lives. Of course Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame, Jodi Benson is the voice of Ariel The Little Mermaid. Nancy Cartwright is known for voicing Bart Simpson, Paige O’Hara is the voice of Belle from Beauty and The Beast. Debra Wilson is of MADtv Fame and many other comedy shows and movies. Mark Hamill is the really surprising one since he’s one of the most successful. Each of these was surprising when Brian revealed all the voice cast.

This was a fun panel and I look forward to what’s coming for season 19 next year. I really love this panel to hear Brian’s commentary and all the bad animation he had to sit through so we don’t have to waste our time. If you go to a convention and Bad Anime Bad! is on the schedule, do yourself a favor and sit through this panel for the fun of this.
