Top 10 Worst Anime

The Top TenXW

1School 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 ...more

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

All animes are terrible

2Boku 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. - Discord

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.

I can't believe there is an actual human being who created this. Whoever did is seriously sick minded.

3Bakugan 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 ...more

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

I remember when I was in like, first or second grade and this came out. Now that I look back on it, it's definitely a Pokemon knock-off.

4Naruto

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 ...more

Also, one of the things I love about Naruto is the villains. You cannot just say that their motives are evil.

Madara, for example, wants to bring peace to a land of Ninja where everybody seems to be fighting for no reason (I belong to this village, so I'd die for it). The wars are just the outcome of contradiction in different people's motives when everybody wants the same thing. The only practical reason seems to be just fulfill their dreams and that can happen only in their dreams (virtual reality is created for everybody. Its like matrix but everybody seems to have their own). So, everybody is happy, no one is dying (life expectancy is really low in Naruto verse). It's really hard to argue against this except that "truth must prevail" statement.

Orochimaru is a researcher. Who doesn't want to learn everything? So, he is just doing what is necessary for his research.

Danzo (hate that guy), never understood his motives, but he is an egoistic person who, ...more

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.

The only thing that manages to be even dumber than Naruto is its fanbase.

5Clannad 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

I find it hard to believe that Clannad After Story found it's way into Top 10 Worst Anime. I feel like my eyes are lying to me. Well, I have no right to criticize your opinions, but I have to say: If you didn't appreciate the powerful and meaningful message Clannad offered, you should rewatch it, and try to understand it a bit more. Clannad After Story told a beautiful story about the losses that life can make you face, and the courage you must build to overcome them. If this is hard to get through you head, may God bless you. Anime is not always something to enjoy as a waste of time, or as a mere form of entertainment Anime can also teach people who are stressed or lonely, how to make the most out of their struggles. Clannad After Story is this kind of anime, whether you like it or not. If you didn't like Clannad, then don't even think about watching Angel Beats, Charlotte, or Anohana. Although they were just as amazing as Clannad After Story.

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.

Could someone please enlighten me on why this anime has made it so high on the Top Ten Worst Anime? Because I don't see what is so terrible about this anime for it to be on here. Overreaction at it's finest.

6Pokemon

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 ...more

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

This is a good show it shouldn't be anywhere on this list it should be as far away as possible. You just have no taste I know a guy who likes a lot of these animes and he says they are good

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!

One piece is actually good, why is it on here?

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?

One of my friends recommended this anime to me, so I decided to give it a shot (they were joking, but back then I didn't know). I stopped after I was 10 minutes through the first episode. This "anime" has a terrible plot and blows up breasts so that they practically fill the whole screen. It's impossible to look anywhere that's not taken by breasts or a pantsu shot or a girl/boy doing inappropriate suggestive things.

9Sailor 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.

Oh hell no, sailor moon is my child hood in two hundred episodes. Their transformations are really long and they're re hashing the same attack in each episode but it has something something most amines today don't really have...a good story! You legit watched usagi grow up and mature. And this anime makes you laugh and cry at the same time. Maybe the person who put this on here watched the English dub instead of the original Japanese dub. The show has a lot of filler episodes like any other anime but it's basically a show about an immature 14 year old who along with 4 other girls are chosen to protect Tokyo from bad guys along with the outer and cosmos soldiers, and it symbolizes girl power and points out sexual discrimination. So moon prism power

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.

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 - GamerGirl

11Lucky Star

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

This should be in the top 10, not Clannad After Story,. It's not funny, it's not entertaining and it's most definitely not "cute". It's just stupid, contrived humour thrown in your face and pathetic moe that surrounds it. I'm not against moe if it's done right, like with Clannad, Kanon and Air, since they are not entirely evolved around moe and have engaging characters and a good story. This show's main focus is just being stupid. How anyone can find this crud funny is way beyond me. If you want a funny anime, watch Ouran, Sket Dance or One Piece, that has loads of funny moments in it.

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!

YES this anime had no main point in it, it ended up with something super boring

12Powerpuff 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!

This actually isn't as bad, well if you like the powerpuff girls. Yes, maybe it's not the best one out there, but sure as hell beats other animes I've seen. Everyone has their opinion, but that's just mine

Japan ruined one of my Favorite shows :'(

13Diabolik Lovers

I somewhat agree and somewhat don't. Unfortunately I have only seen the first episode so I will explain my judgement on that episode and only that episode. I don't enjoy the fact that the boys sexually harass the girl when they don't enjoy here presence in their house. They pretty much just use her throughout the first episode. Although I am happy that at least one character in a horror-like anime is smart. While I was watching the first episode, I was yelling "RUN! GET OUT OF THERE! " Especially when she was speaking to the boys and trying to figure out what happened. And then she ran! And I was like "YESH! " But then when it failed I was yelling at her to "Find the kitchen and get a knife! " Unfortunately she didn't and let the men touch and harass her. I like and hate this show. I like the idea, but I don't like the way the men treat the main character.

How this is not top 5 I'll never know. Horrible characters, stupid protagonist and horrible story line.

Take Twilight, Vampire Knight and Ouran High School Host Club and mash them all together into one anime and this is what you get.

So the main protagonist gets into a house of vampires and allows them to sink their fangs into her? She could've got away so easily yet she wasted all those chances. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Plain characters, no background story, the main character is the worst pathetic loser I've ever seen. Give me back my time.

I can think of more than 123 ways Yui could have escaped in the first episode... Kind of pointless and dumb...

14Sword Art Online

Okay, now Sword Art Online is just being treated like Naruto. I mean, Sword Art Online may not be the best show, but it's not the worst either. Same thing goes for Naruto. People will just hate on Sword Art Online for stupid reasons just because they think it's cool to do so (like with Naruto). For example, when people say Sword Art Online is a cheap harem series, they don't realize that the harem isn't even the main aspect of the series. Plus, many people just jump to conclusions that this anime is bad because the female characters are weak or they don't like the Fairy Dance arc. However, Asuna is not really weak and still strong after being freed, not to mention she at least tried to escape instead of waiting on Kirito to save her. Plus, Reki Kawahara is getting better with his writing and improving on sequels of the show. Finally, if people don't like the romance, there was an official global poll of 10,000 fans on the Top 10 Anime Couples hosted by Blog Honeyfeed and Kirito and ...more

Okay like seriously, I think I'm the only person on the entire planet who actually liked BOTH halves of the show. This is a show about love in the most dire conditions. I personally think that the show got that point across by having Kirito and Asuna's relationship grow in MULTIPLE environments, not just in SAO. Also, I'm a person who's drawn to an anime with amazing music and art, not just slice slice battle battle kill killing kill woo hoo. I understand that this anime had flaws but I think it was well-executed and very, very enjoyable. Anyway, that's my opinion.

The first three episodes of this show was interesting, but later on it was just romance. Why did the sao game ending at episode 12 so quickly. It just move on to faires and the arc was so terrible. I am pretty sure his cousin fell in love with him which is an awkward scene, but in this show his is a ladies man. Asuna was suppose to die. It would have been better so this stupid show could end. This show had a good idea about being trapped in a video game, but this show had more ideas of the main character and asuna getting married and having a child which is part of the video game and could never god damn leave. This show is horrible and it's still for another season.

Trust me, there are way worse anime than Sword Art Online. I know it's kinda overrated, but it's at least DECENT.

15Rosario + Vampire

I've only seen the first episode, but it is WAY too original! And the boy didn't even know Moka for that long before he revealed himself and went through all the friendship drama. It's dumb and Moka isn't scary. The characters are just wimps. Then she makes that awfully obnoxious noise when she sucks the boys blood. If I were him I'd be gone before it even happened. Besides, who attends a school that they just happen to find an ad to without doing any research or anything?!

I don't think something can be "too original", but that's just my opinion. I've never seen the anime or heard it, but I think you mean it's too weird. But I'm not trying to correct you on something, I'm just saying that I'm a little fed up with everyone thinking an anime has to be absolutely perfect to be good, with perfect characters and a perfect storyline. EVERY anime is going to have its flaws. There is no perfect anime, though there may be according to you, but I've never seen this anime. I'll say too that attending a school without research is dumb - TheAlbinoWolf

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.

This show is basically a joke. At first, I liked it for some reason, but after thinking over the anime, I was like, "what did I just watch? " But, the animation is really good, and the plot line is pretty unique and nice.

It makes fun of it's self! It knows it's ridiculous, that's the whole point.

16Sonic 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.

We're talking about the 4kids dub, right?

17Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal

The first yugioh series was only in Japan and never aired in America. It was called Yugioh. It was not about cards it was about a tenth grader named yugi who loved playing all sorts of puzzles and games. When he solved the millennium puzzle he gained a shadow counterpart (who is actually a pharaoh but not important right now) when someone does something bad to is friends or commits a crime that he witnesses he unknowingly transforms into yami yugi ( dark yugi) and passes judgement on them by playing cool but kinda sadistic shadow games that are often dangerous some even life threatening. It later was cancelled to do the dual monsters spinoff because the card game (though only a 3 ep appearance) gained extreme popularity because people wanted to by them. Ths was around the card boom caused by Pokemon,digimon,etc.. So when they realized they could make more money off of making a card series they did. Unfortunately the extremely awesome original never got a second season and is almost ...more

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

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!

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!

It's only over-priced tops & the show SUCKS.

I actually like this anime back when I was a kid..till I realize how stupid this anime was!

People are surprised by an anime called Panty & Stocking being filled with Hyper Sexualized women? Seriously, the name tells you what the anime is about. What were you expecting, a documentary on clothing manufacturing?

It appears that the bulk of complaints on this site are due to people expecting too much from the series. This one is about fan service, nothing more.

The women of this show are hyper-sexualized, so much so that it even made me uncomfortable.

Wow, who comes up with the dumbest name in anime history?

Animes can be dumb, I realize that. But this is so dumb to the point were it is impossible to be entertained by it.

Yes it is weird and dumb... and somewhat annoying, but I happen to like it. I guess it's meant to be funny and it's really unique and original. I like the characters and their personalities and I like what their trying to accomplish. When you think about it (If you have hair) would you want to be forced to be bald? It makes sense that they're trying to stop the villain. You may think what when you first watch it but I think that it's the funny and good kind of what.

This is anime is SUPPOSED to be dumb idiots. It's the seinfeld of anime.
