When this topic made its appearance in the list my first thought was to pick Bubblegum Crash or any one of a number of other dreadful sequels out there. There were also several instalments of Tenchi Muyo and/or El Hazard contending for the (dis?)honour. However I disqualified those on the grounds that I don’t actually like the franchises as a whole.

So then I selected one of the most egregious examples of false advertising in anime: WXIII: Patlabor the Movie 3.

Because the one thing that this isn’t is a Patlabor movie. Oh, WXIII isn’t too bad for what it actually is (which is an anime version of Godzilla) but SV2 only make a cameo appearance in the last 15 minutes.

And I wanted a Patlabor movie!
