What is the wasted AP/AR which annoyed you the most?

There is a tendency in this category to make a big chunk of the process either poof-like, offscreen or with a badly animated and blurry silhouette. So, the question is, which of these cases annoyed you the most due to the waste of an otherwise amazing process?
My picks are Natsumi from "Jungle de Ikou" and Maya's channeling in the entire Ace Attorney series.

Maya's AP was understood in the context of DS technical limitations, they always happened offscreen...but sadly, the anime decided to follow this tradition to save on animation. It was such a wasted chance, because the changes are just too drastic. I think that even most hentais STILL skip the physical transformation, it is indeed a nightmare.

Natsumi's case is even more unforgivable, because there is an actual transformation sequence where she dances and makes sexy moves and all that...but, right when the physical changes are about to star...POOF, they are skipped and the TF abruptly ends. Not even a minuscule clothes change. There is some process of her face during the opening though. As always, this tradition is followed by the doujins of this series...making it even more annoying.

Luckily, chriskim and I comissioned a pair of sequences involving said wasted sequences, so I guess that the issue of no process has been solved (Well, it was Pearl instead of Maya, but you get the picture)

The monogatari series ending which just showed kiss shot with no hint of AP at all which made me feel like we could've possibly had one more AP. That and also the final movie not showing the adult Kiss-Shot AP at the beginning

The Fairy Tail group AR/AP was pretty lackluster since we never saw either thing happen onscreen.

Ouran Host Club, while Kirimi had a great AP, I do wish it wasn't done in fades and was actually animated

100% agree with Jungle De Ikou, given how great the animation was in that OVA we could've had an amazing AP

At least we got some AP in the form of Erza and Gray in the Fairy Tail case, but I agree that I would have loved a sexy group AP during the whole chapter XD (Even the AR would have been great)

The same with Kiss Shot's AP, it's a shame there wasn't more, but we got a little consolation price in the movie...

But yeah, I totally agree that it would have been one of our biggest chances to see quality process on mainstream series T_T

Re: What is the wasted AP/AR which annoyed you the most?

Like you guys already mentioned, the Fairy Tail AR/AP and the Ace Attorney APs are disappointly lacking in process, but I have another form of wasted AR opportunity to mention.

The AR scene in Classicaloid always left me mostly happy yet a bit peeved at the same time. It's an excellent AR, but the fact that it's 99% male instead of focusing on both genders always frustrated me; especially considering there are girls in the scene, it's just that it cuts away far too fast. Oh well, it remains a great AR, and I can only hope there will be at least one more in the future focusing on girls (The chances are low as heck, but a man can dream, right?)

Re: What is the wasted AP/AR which annoyed you the most?

Indeed, let's hope that those dreams become true some day ^^
By the way, AR wise, I recently experienced another disappointment:
After looking for months when the movie "No Game no Life Zero" was going to get released online, I find myself with a movie with excellent animation and over the top visuals. And, in the climax where the budget shines the most (some sort of apocalypse of a magic/iron draining thing machine) we see a scene of all angels (including the "top waifu" of the series, Jibril) trying to stop it. But after an explosion and some cutaway of more buildings/earth collapsing...we find all angels had AR'ed offscreen. And, instead of returning to normal when that armageddon is stopped, the movie just makes a timeskip to the point when they are all adult again...
