The Top Ten

School Days
Is School Days the worst anime ever? No. It is the worst THING ever. I only watched it because if its noterity, and it is well deserving of all the hate it gets. The story is barf inducing and the charecters are some of the worst people in any form of media. Avoid at all costs.
I'm curious why this anime is so hated and so, I decided to watch some. And I stopped watching it after 3 episodes (I didn't watch episode 3 and 4, I just cut to episode 5 because someone said everyone wanted Makoto to be dead by episode 4). And after watching it, I have to avoid my eyes being hurt by the sex scenes. And Makoto is such a jerk, he deserved what he get for cheating on Kotonoha and screwing up with the other characters. He transformed the whole genre from cute/drama into ecchi/drama all into a sudden! I read the ending at the internet, and although it is satisfying because finally Makoto died, it's way too gruesome for my taste (Sekai is just too cruel). I think the first three episode is pretty nice, but finally, it's just a show filled with sex scenes. I felt this is the worst anime I ever seen in my life. The biggest factor is the characters (especially Makoto). The story is quite good, but it turned out to be sucks thanks to Makoto.

And I still don't understand why many of good animes we know is in this list. Like Sailor Moon, Naruto, One Piece, Pokemon, Bleach, Attack on Titan... They seriously do not belong here. I really don't understand why people chooses to vote them instead of this 'anime'.
Why vote for like Death Note, One Piece, Pokemon, Vampire Knight, Bleach and other good animes. Instead vote for a anime like this. I HATE SCHOOL DAYS

2Bakugan Battle Brawlers
I had to be truth, both series (Bakugan and Pokemon) are tie on the wrost, but there are some points in favor for the monsters.

1. It get's repetitive, but what I can do, I'm still hoping for Team Rocket. Those guys sometimes still manages to be funny or interesting, and I want the to WIN ONCE AND FOR ALL DAMMIT!
Bakugan has nothing like those two still enjoyable.
2. Sometimes I play Pokemon games, on DS are quite funny, even if sometimes they pull out stupid gadgets. Bakugan games are meh.
3. Pokemon fame. those Monsters are EVERYWHERE... so they ended up in the hands of Devian artists and people who can make nice fun on them or just share the hate.
4. Some Pokemons are cool and they don't deserve to be in this series. Bakugan... well, need so say anything?

And, last but not least, Pokemon was fun in some points, Bakugan never. Both are series made to sell, but while Pokemon takes the Yugi road (cool main series, so wrong 2-3-4 series), Bakugan goes wrong first try.
HELL NO you grew up with Pokemon I grew up with bakugan so shut up
I like many other anime on the list here, but... THIS ain't A ANIME. This is like a pokemon knock-off. Pokemon was okay as a kid but seeing transforming balls and playing cards combined is just such a disgrace to call an anime...
This isn't even considered an anime. The heck with balls that can transform DX
[Newest]It's the worst cause they have the worst storyline so far

3Naruto
The comments here are nothing but ridiculous exaggerations. I would not be surprised if some idiot here said, "NARTUO IS the WROST ANMIE ever N you sucks IF you LIEK IT! 1! 1! 11! " and received a few thumbs up. Naruto may not be the best anime, but it is not the worst anime either. School Days, Bakugan Battle Brawlers, or Sonic X should take Naruto's place as number one on this list. The explanations which people offer as to why they think Naruto is bad are extremely weak and biased. For example, people say that the entire Naruto series is bad either because it focused on Sasuke for a few episodes, has a lot of flashbacks, because it is the first influence on kids, or because their favorite characters were killed off. First, the focus on Sasuke was necessary because the change in Sasuke's goals was important to the plot. If there was no focus on Sasuke, then no one would know why he now targets the Leaf Village. The flashbacks may seem annoying, but they serve the same purpose as the focus on Sasuke: to give light to the characters' past and reveal which events shaped their personality, especially if they are antagonists. The fact that it is the first influence on kids is not a very good reason to hate Naruto because there are more factors which determine the quality of an anime than its influence/popularity. Lastly, the fact that some interesting characters in Naruto died does not automatically make Naruto a terrible anime. Death is an unpredictable force which happens to anybody in real life, so it should not matter if the good or popular characters die in an anime. I may be wrong, but the reasons given on this list for disliking Naruto are pretty absurd.
There's nothing wrong with the characters or the plot, really. All of that is quite interesting, honestly. However, what pushed me away from this anime was its sense of humor and seemingly repetitive fight scenes. It's a bit hard to explain, but some things about this anime irk me in the same way that Fairy Tail and One Piece do. I guess it's just because I'm a sucker for more serious anime, though, and the whole laughing off the big things and zooming in on the small details isn't really my type of thing.

Don't get me wrong, though. I'm not exactly saying that nobody should watch this anime or that it's just flat-out bad, nor am I saying that I dislike the flashbacks. On the contrary, I see how it would be interesting to many. Also, I quite enjoy when anime gives us a good look into the characters' pasts. It's not about the characters being killed off, either (I mean, I read Akame ga Kill. Of course that's not why I'm complaining). It's just.. in this genre, I prefer darker, more serious, and more organized anime.
Naruto sucks! I agree that it is really overrated. One thing I hate about Naruto is that it is so full of FLASHBACKS. Especially now in Naruto Shippuden, it sucks to think that some episodes are all about when they were still young. They could have animated that in Naruto Season not in Shippuden. They are just killing our time.
[Newest]Countless fillers, More focus on Sasuke than main character Naruto, Weak character development of Naruto and anything is possible philosophy make this series worst. I think this series should not have been premiered.

4Boku no Pico
Boku no pico is a hentai anime
-meaning that it contains graphical sex scenes
Specifically, it's a yaoi hentai anime
-meaning that it contains graphical sex scenes about homosexuals
Even more specifically, it's a shotacon yaoi hentai anime
-meaning that it contains graphical sex scenes about underage homosexuals
I thought this didn't exist? It's real? I'll have to check it out. Wish me luck, I may never return.

HOW IS THIS NOT NUMBER ONE YET BAKUGAN IS? It's child porn and pedophilia. Disgusting. It goes way past hentai level and anyone who enjoys this are sick pedos.

ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Never watched it but as comments show, I will never watch it in my life. I just hope that the 2015 live action will be cancelled.

SelfDestruct

Disregarding the child molesting/manipulation, it is a bad anime. There's almost no polite except for "Boku meets people and has sex with them." There's no character development. There's no interesting dialogue. It's really just well-animated porn.
[Newest]This is the crappiest thing.

5Pokemon
From replacing all of the good voice actors/the ones who didn't make you want to bash your ears in for the characters 3/4 way through the Advanced Generation Saga, to the constant replacing of former characters, to the never-ending "journey" of Ash's continuous losses at the Pokemon Leagues from Kanto-Unova, this anime has been milked to hell and it's obvious it needs to go. It started off with a good idea, a nice concept, and a lot of heart: nowadays, it's absolutely terrible not because it's new, but because it's the same thing with TRio becoming supposedly more competent but in reality they're now just serious but still losing every single time.

I'm actually very sad to see what happened to a once good anime series that actually taught you things.
I don't know what this anime even about!
There no point of watching this if the Protagonist isn't going to achieve his goal ever.
Best wishs proudly teach kids that People ether has to born with Talent Or Luck to achieve his/her goal because working hard doesn't pay.
In other word, If a Kid is unable to get good grade then its because God doesn't gave him/her the Talent Or Luck to achieve it.
So He/She would fail no matter how much he/she study.
Just Like Ash Ketchum, He can't achieve his Goal no matter how hard he work because he was Born as an Underdog.
So We shouldn't blame that Kid and encourage him/her to work hard.
Instate we should just blame God for not giving him/her the talent.
"Underdog" has no right to have Big Dream Or Aim.
Big Dream Or Aim in life is only for "Child Prodigy".
Underdogs will only just make a fool out of them if they Dream something big and try to work hard to fulfill that Dream.
That the Moral Pokemon teaching Kids.
Ash has not fulfilled his dream for the same reason Luffy hasn't.
It WAS good in the 90s but now it just keep getting repetitive... The 'NEW' pokemons are actually the same pokemon from the past series of the franchise with a slightly different moveset and looks, story is just all the same every series, ash going to fight gyms, meet new friends & all that crap which is already used in the past series.
I mean seriously man? Some of the other kids shows are better
[Newest]Boring, just, boring. It's repetitive and there are never any new interesting characters. Got bored of it a long time ago and can't help but not be interested in it now.

6Clannad After Story
Like someone else said, I absolutely have no idea how this anime managed to get to the top 10 worst list. I assume it's because the ending pissed them off but that is still no excuse to put it on here as the rest of it is very good. I can't believe that some of the worst anime are below this anime. Whoever voted on this list are retards.
Calling people who don't like clannad AS retards is just disrespectful.

ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

What in blazes is this anime doing at 3?!?! Hinestly this anime was very good! Yes the ending was trash but why give it a bad rating just because of that? This shouldn't even be on here, and One Piece!
Whilst I'm not the biggest Clannad fan, I'm not at all surprised at the outburst on here. I cannot imagine how this could end up as being one of the worst animes of all time when it's a million miles off from it. What's even worse is that the bashers keep voting this up just to make snarky comments about it and criticise the fans for being so defensive. What would you expect? -. - Of course everyone would break into defensive mode if their favourite anime ended up on here. I mean this list is so utterly absymal. Some animes that really ARE terrible aren't even on here and the ones that are cherished classics are always being dragged down just for their reputation. I don't know what's got into the anime industry these days, but I would never ever put Clannad onto the top 10 worst. Remove this and One Piece and maybe the choice of animes would make more sense.

7One Piece
This anime is the best! It shouldn't be near this list
One piece is the best anime! Totally agree with zack2246tt even though I don't like bakugan brawlers or clannad or lucky star or sailor moon. This anime shouldn't be near this list!
This anime is one of the best animes on here, it does NOT belong on this list!

8Sailor Moon
I love this anime. It's really old school. Some people say that it's a bunch of skimpy girls fighting... Nope. If you call them skimpy, you should see other animes. Hahaha.
I disagree.
HOW IS SAILOR MOON IN THE TOP TEN WORST ANIME SHOWS? I know that it could be very annoying sometimes the fact that the sailors changing into their sailor outfits wastes 30% of the video and their annoying sentences before they fight, does not mean you should hate on this anime series. This show provides a very good story plot and the characters are quite interesting too.
I'm sorry, but none if the characters are interesting. They are all bland as hell. When I see them, it feels like I'm looking at cardboard. They are that flat.
This anime is a joke so make it number one on worst animes. I mean really all it is, is some girl changeling her clothes a dumb magic way and then I just want to shut it off. Good amines like bleach one piece Naruto clannad shouldn't be above this I would like this to be at least number 3 please thanks. And don't forget to vote for this
[Newest]Sailor Moon is a good show. It's a interesting idea for a show. But I tip my hat to Sailor Moon Crystal, because it improved so of the problems of the original. Just my opinion.

9Eiken
This anime just is too way to weird... SERIOUSLY boobs are bigger then their bodies
This anime is just too much. Basically girls with over sized TRIPLE XA BOOBS what?
Is it wrong for a 12 year old to have small boobs? This anime makes me, my little sis, and friends uncomfortable with that little (7? ) year old girl w/ the glasses and pink hair have a bust size that ' BIG. She will definitely suffer from scoliosis.
[Newest]This anime doesn't even deserve to even be called an anime all it is about is girls with big racks...

10Powerpuff Girls Z
Well, it is just PowerPuff Girls made in Japan...
Take this off the list! Whoever put this on the list doesn't even know how good this show is. It's totally much funnier than the original and more enjoyable. How is this terrible? I've seen even worse shows than this. This is unlike any other anime. Whenever I'm bored or sad this show cheers me up. You don't even know how hard these girls have to fight and get bad grades just to go and save the city and only want free time. Poor girls!
Nothing to do with the Powerpuff Girls, makes me sick just by watching it and knowing what age the little girls are while wearing mini skirt. What age are the Powerpuff Girls? 14... I'm gonna let that sink in your brain
Well, the legal age of consent in Japan is 13 years old, so technically to them it isn't creepy, it's natural

The Contenders

11Lucky Star
More than half of the first episode shows the characters telling each other how to eat different kinds of food. NOBODY CARES! SHOW US SOME DEPTH AND STORY!
The characters are boring, but all the other people have said that. The animation is sub-par at its best, none of the characters I can relate to, the jokes didn't work very well, and dear God, the references! Look, it's fine to have some references in an anime, but it it's your main milk for jokes, then that's your guarantee GOLD that this is going to be a bad comedy/ slice of life anime.
I have wasted many hours of my life watching this pointless show... and I loved every second of it. I don't care about the fact that it doesn't have a plot, because the fact that it doesn't have a plot IS THE PLOT. They are just girls who like to talk about their likes and dislikes. So what? That's like almost every conversation that's happening right now. Plus. come on. They're adorable :3

12DearS
Alien chicks who come to earth to be slaves?

And it looses me there.
Take 3 awesome animes, Kanon, Chobits, and Girls Bravo, and let's mash them together like Frankenstein and create what could possibly be the worst form of "entertainment" ever, held together by the small hairs of a terrible plot, horrible characters, and annoying and pathetic comedy. DearS is a complete disaster and should be condemned
I may love anime DearS is awful it's about these Aliens who want to become slaves yeah I don't get it either and it's gross I wanted to vomit after that don't watch it and all the characters are Idiots

13Dragon Ball Z
Why the hell is this on the list?
You suck so much ass for putting this on the list the only reason I starting watching anime
Dude you have got to be kidding me dbz is the best thing I ever watched it's you're opinion but mine is different and for naruto, naruto shippuuden, Yu-Gi-Oh, gx it's my best anime after dbz that's my opinion.
This show sucks. Every one has the same powers ( except for piccolo, cell, and buy. ) the villains all have the same purpose, destroy everything for no reason!

No one ever uses strategy. They always fight superior enemies one on one when ganging up on them would give them an advantage. There all "incredibly fast" but refuse to dodge. They just stand in front of each other and wail on each other.

The kameh hameh ha is just a chi blast with a name like most of their moves.

When you watch it, you're just watching a bunch of blurs. I mean I realize there supposed to be faster than the I can see, but come on. It's like going to wrestlemania to watch the ring. I came to see a fight. They could be having a tea party for all I know.

And last, but not least, everyone quits to easily. In dragon ball picollo broke Gokus arms, but Goku kept fighting. He eventually won by hurling himself at picollo. In dragon ball z after the freeza saga the z warriors stopped trying. Yea they trained, but when they ran into someone stronger, rather than attacking all at once they stare and let the enemy kick them around. Even Goku gave up after fighting cell for a few minutes. Yes cell was stronger, but if Goku fought with everything he had, cell would have been to tired to beat gohan or even vegeta.

14Yu-Gi-Oh!
Personally I never thought the story was vague at all. There was always a new plot or bad guy who spiced up the show and the characters were all unique and special in their own way. They all had a look that no other anime characters could copy.
Yu Gi Oh was practically my childhood. The story was always great and so were the characters. So what if their playing a card game? In Pokemon they just have animal fights. Most of the characters had good back stories. Like Seto Kaiba, he was probably the most developed character. And it isn't some stupid kid show. There was death and violence. This should not be on here.
I never could get into it. I mean think about do really want spend half an hour watching people play cards, if you wanted to see that you could go to any man's home. Also why does the monsters come out of cards it's like watching a retarded version of Pokemon. And where the hell do they get the cards ebay?
[Newest]I love you gi ho

15Beyblade
Dear people who say the most popular and famous anime like Bleach, One Piece, and Naruto (Shipudden) are popular for a reason. They are good, unlike this BS that is somehow lower than Pokemon, probably one of the richest anime in ever, considering they made games, trading cards, toys, and the anime itself. This stupid anime is about tops. Tops. TOPS. "Go F-ing top! Kill the other top! " Stupid in my point of view that has ruined kids brains. Also did I forget to mention, Pokemon trading card games give people SCHOLARSHIPS, showing they value education as well!
WORST ANIME EVER! This anime is nothing but a bunch of screaming and metal spinning tops that spin around until the other one falls. Seriously I've seen better battles in Yugioh than this piece of garbage!
DUMB-ASS SHOW. Deserves to die.
Okay, sorry to everyone I offend but SERIOUSLY?! This show is the very definition of ridiculous! (I'm talking about the metal fight saga thing)
The whole plot is stupid because it revolves around to pieces of metal rolling around in a giant basin.

16Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal
Worst Yu-Gi-Oh! Series ever. It made me give up hope on the series. Kazuki Takahashi, PLEASE END THE SERIES! 5D's should have been the last one. The character designs are terrible and it's at one hundred episodes now. God, someone end this crap.

dbret12

It is only enjoyable in Japanese. The Dub was absolute pathetic.

SelfDestruct

It's not as good as the old yugioh series, and it's about a kid that is a huge wimp that relies on some kind of alien to help him win his duels
Zexal is just an injustice to the entire franchise. It's far too gimmicky for my tastes.
[Newest]I have seen some abominations when it comes to new series of classic shows. But this.. This satanic vile excuse of a show takes first prize by miles.

17Rosario + Vampire
Ugh, this anime is complete ass. Its attempts at serious drama are laughable, the stories are awfully predictable and the characters simply have no depth to them; which is terrible because the premise has a lot of potential. Just stick to the manga for your own sake.
Its just fan serivce and Glee style drama. Its just GOD AWFUL!
I got tired after the first episode. No action or anything cool. Moka Akashiya tends to show off her stuff and there is much romance related things. Boring. Your typical spice of life...
[Newest]I actually liked this anime I watched it all and found it amusing.

18K-On!
The only good thing is that SCANDAL do the song for the end credits. It's a stereotypical piece of rubbish. Also the voices are to squeaky for everything. Eventhough it's an anime they shouldn't progress that fast as a band/musician. It's also so boring... I don't know many people who like it...
The animation is good and the characters look good but the show itself is SO boring. It's just the daily life of 5 girls performing and stuff and they don't even make it cool or interesting.
The only played 3 songs, tow of the songs were the same, squeaky voices, the opening and ending theme was a sort of troll, saying you wanted your not gonna get it, and if I hear tea one more time I will choke someone.

19Sonic X
Sonic X is a bad stain on the Sonic Franchise. Horrible Story, terrible writing, awful characters, and heinous voice acting are just a few of the problems this show has
This show is bad because:
1: Got 5.8/10 and 2.5/5. I can relate.
2: Episodes, characters, story, fan pairings all over the place.
3: Amy.
4: So bad that all of the episodes were FREE on hulu plus! My opinion, I think that's why...
In general, I never liked this show. It deserved cancellation. Hopefully, it won't be on nicktoons.
The sooner I forget my terrible experience the show scared in my brain the better. Each episode is like a stab to the soul with its all over the place stories and awful side characters which the spend more time focusing on than Sonic. The show is called Sonic X and Sonic barely does anything and we barely see him.
[Newest]What the hell is Pokemon, Naruto, One Piece, and DRAGONBALL Z, doing higher then this?!

20Girls Bravo
This show had one of the worst plot lines in anime history, almost as bad as DearS. Why is a bathtub a portal to a world where 90% of its population are desperate and attractive women?
What kind of anime is this! I don't even CARE if it's hentai, how is it even biologically possible for you to be allergic to another human being?!
