Web Bombs Bad Website: asahi-net.or.jp

I’m a little torn about this bad website. On the one hand, I love quirky Japanese stuff and I’m on the fence about whether this site is terrible on purpose or not. On the other hand, there is really no excuse for this kind of thing. Except perhaps if the designer (ugh, that word doesn’t feel right) had a lot of stock in a medical company that makes aspirin, and he was trying to induce massive headaches. Oooooh. Maybe he’s shooting for seizures. Coulda been inspired by that one Pokemon episode. If you’re not sure what I mean, do something for me. Stop reading this right now and go look at the site. The link opens in a new window. I’ll wait for you. Click the picture. Do it.

. . .

Okay. Back now? Give your eyes a minute to settle and let your brain stop quivering like jostled Jello. Better now? Okay. SEE WHAT I MEAN? So much flashy animation in one place.

Maybe this dude is some kind of gif otaku and collects them, and this could be some kind of weird art project. Let’s face it though, subjective as art is, sometimes a piece of art just flat-out sucks. Sorry. No amount of quirkiness will excuse this. Even if it’s unapologetically Japanese – inaccessible to Westerners and all that – that still doesn’t justify a page like this. This is a bad site in any language. Sorta. I actually have a sneaking suspicion that this site is even funnier if you can read the Japanese, right? If you have a geeky anime loving Japanophile buddy, make them fansub this page for you and listen to them spin up bullshit about how it’s actually great and you just don’t appreciate it. If you like reading Web Bombs, I’m sure you’d get a kick out of your friend making an ass out of themselves like that.

Think the site is bad? Rant about it with us!

Who we are!

If you like to laugh at bad websites, this is the place! We review websites -- but not just any website -- we look for web bombs! Websites so bad they're funny. Epic web fails. There's a certain humor in something that is done really poorly, since thinking about it makes you feel better about yourself. We find these bad websites, then we rant about them for your entertainment.

Bad design comes in many flavors: bad navigation, poor choice of layout and images, tacky color choices, and a whole slew of other problems. We are on the hunt for some of the most horrible websites we can find so you can make fun of them with us. Share them with your friends - use them to Rickroll some poor sod, then donate some money so we can hire these people a good web developer!
