Top 10 Worst Anime

The Top TenXW

1Boku 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've never watched it and never will but it sounds horrid

2School 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.

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

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

When I saw this at first I thought it's classic romance anime, but it's definitely not. I'm really kind of scared because this exist. I would recommend this to my biggest enemy indeed. - uros

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

No matter how strong drago is there always stronger bakugan/monster

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.

Their boobs are bigger than your life.

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.

What WHY is this here!? I literally cried every episode it was so beautiful. I don't understand why its even in this list...

6NarutoNaruto is an anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto. The manga was later adapted into a television anime, which was produced by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex. It premiered across Japan on the terrestrial TV Tokyo and other TX Network stations on October 3, 2002. The first series ...read more.

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

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

This anime has a very cool story with awesome fights but the filler gets in the way of everything. - Joeru-kun

7DearS

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

So horrible. It makes my eyes bleed.

8Lucky 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!

Hey, this show's hilarious

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.

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

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.

Should be number 1 watch it for yourself, a girl gets her head blown off and they take her to they hospital to see if "she will make it"? What! Whoever made this is obviously the most stupid person in the world

I must admit that I laughed when that girl her head exploded and they brought her to the hospital.

I'm so surprised at the rank this one got. The OST - wait, there isn't a OST... they use Beethoven music... the plot twist at the end is retarded in my opinion, and that scene where the girl who's head was blown off is brought to the hospital to see if she would make it... NO.

How is this on here? This was one of my favorite anime ever! The animation is nice and so is the plot. It can be funny and sad at times. I can't believe its on here!

The Contenders

11One PieceOne Piece is a manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. The manga has been adapted into an original video animation (OVA) produced by Production I.G in 1998, and an anime series produced by Toei Animation, which began broadcasting in Japan in 1999 and has aired 749 episodes to date.

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!

12Sailor 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.

Sailor Moon is really one of the worst amines. The main character has no development and doesn't get any stronger unlike the other Sailor Scouts. The plot is pretty bland and most of the characters don't even mature ( even with 200 episodes ). Also the design is not the best and the English Dub is so cringe. To be honest there is much more better magical girl amines like Tokyo Mew Mew, Pretty Cure, Princess Tutu, Mermaid Melody, Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch, Card Captor Sakura, and etc.

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

I don't know why people like this anime. The main character is weak, the vampires are idiots, and half of those idiots are perverts. Almost no one in the anime is smart. Yui should have took the chance to leave, but no, she had to be the idiot she is and say no. If it was me, I would've stole Subaru's knife and kill everyone. But no, Yui had to be the dumbass she is and let those men harass her. She c ould've tried to escape when no one was watching, but she didn't. This anime is terrible, even an annoying child's show is better than this. I wasted hours of my life watching this terrible excuse of an anime. I would rather watch Madoka Magica or Boku No Pico for the rest of my life, anything so that I won't watch this anime. I hate the anime, there are way too many perverted scenes. Even Ciel Phantomhive is better at defending himself, Yui doesn't even know when to kick a boy in the nuts.

For me, it's the second worst anime I've watched so far. I give number one to School Days. She just lets 6 extremely good looking guys harass her till she faints. Like what the hell? It has a boring story line.

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

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!

All the other anime above this one are just people in genres they don't like. Yes, boku no pico is awful and porn so it doesn't have much character development or plot or anything else. School days is awesome but has a very target audience, and I can see why people who were expecting a romance didn't like it since it's parodying the genre they were expecting. A lot of them are children's anime or ecchi so of course they seem bad in general but they do what they were meant to do. Pupa doesn't seem to offer anything but short episodes though.

I heard the manga was actually good though, but the anime was bad. I don't know, I haven't watched or read it yet because I've just recently gotten into anime and I'm not used to a lot of blood and gore yet.

Pupa was so bad. The animation was unclear and drowsy. The premise and plot were not too bad, but the way that it was executed was appalling. It was weird and nothing was explained.

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.

It's kind of fun and weird. But literally, name is funnier than anime. Still don't deserve 15 place. - uros

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!

Terrible. I can't believe I used to watch this crap. How can you beat evil with a top? How can you lose energy while playing? Too damn expensive. But how the hell would a TOP HAVE POWER THAT IS ONE STUPID ANIME.

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!

This show is bad on so many levels. I hate it. How is it not any higher? - Joeru-kun

18Dragon Ball GT

After intense battles against Freezer, Cell Kid Buu, the anime is sold and the battles now do not have any violence and the storyline is really terrible. it was destined to have over 400 episodes but it had to be reduced to 64 due to inminent cancelation. it was all to make it a "kids anime" while kids rather enjoy the previous DBZ rather than this piece of crap. AND GOKU IS STILL OVER 9000 BUT TURNED AS A CHILD ONCE MORE!

Imagine taking a highly acclaimed series and then giving it a complete hundred episode season of filler and publish it under the name of the original work. Probably the first show that actually deserves to be here.

The series was terrible and is one of those things that should have never existed. In fact, it was the studio's fault for making Pan this despised since she wasn't like this in DBZ, thankfully.

I hate this anime I can't even bare to watch it sorry for whoever likes this but it sucks!

If you mix breasts with horrible animation, giant non-sync robots, and a terrible plot, bland characters, you have Skelter Heaven.

Everything about this anime sucks from the awful animation to the pathetic art. This anime is definitely worth a skip. Besides, the hilariously awful looking robots and retarded giant squid show how bad this series is.

I'm glad this finally made it to the top 30! The plot makes no sense, the art is hideous, and this anime was from the creators of Mars of Destruction.

I've watched all the episodes and I regret it ALL its too weird and the makers even go so far they show nipples now some of those perverts might be looking for the anime just because I said that. And in the beginning of the episode the makers couldn't stop showing the panties maybe I'm just being a little childish or not but lets get to the real reasons its bad. There aren't any good situations a lot are stupid like one was the girls/monsters told there parents they were dating but they lied and when there parents came over the boy ( sorry I forgot his name) had to run away and avoid them becuase once they found the truth they would force him to love him. - lucario_ninetales

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.

Why are all anime vampires perverts?
