Top Ten Best Abridged Anime Series


The Top Ten

1 Dragon Ball Z Abridged

Amazing voice talent and funny recurring anime improvements

We here at team four star do not condone child violence. We do, however, find it hilarious.

TFS is brilliant

2 Sword Art Online Abridged

It's so much better than canon, even with their super ridiculous characters it is still way more believable than the base show. Super funny and better written than SAO.

Most abridged anime end up being an incoherent jumble of inappropriate jokes, but SAO Abridged is absolutely amazing. I was blown away by its characters, humor, and plot so much so that I enjoy it more than even some of my favorite anime. It's hard to appreciate the original series because of this.

One of the best abridged anime with a great story and great character development that works, re watched it about 4-5 times now

3 Yu-gi-oh Abridged

Fun jokes that are fun from the beginning and callback that make them even funnier! I tried watching many different abridges series but none of them could reach that level of humour right from the get-go!

The jokes are hilarious and this series just shows how talented LittleKuriboh is. I love rewatching this show, it never gets old for me and I'm happy that he's still putting out episodes.

They always have original jokes and references that aren't to obscure. They are also amazing at keeping running gags throughout the episodes. Plus Yugioh is Life

The one that started it all

6 Hellsing Ultimate Abridged

This should be #1 on this list, it isn't long for a finished 10 episode abridged but it's the funniest damn abridged with the best voice acting I think I've ever heard from an abridged series!

Amazing. The first abridged show I watched, and I'm addicted to it.

This will always be by far my favorite, with SAO abridged and codeMENT being close behind. It evolves so much from the first to last episode and the characters are all hilarious. And it's not afraid to keep serious moments serious

The best

7 Danganronpa Abridged Thing

The voice acting is good, but over all it was meh.

Extremely creative with its content and wisecracks, this hilarious take on the Danganronpa animation lasted only about half of the actual series but still enough to leave the viewers bashing their heads and fists against their desks laughing. The abridged voicing is well done and the characters themselves are a little too true to their individual backgrounds or hilariously updated for the viewers' amusement. Overall a funny abridged series worth watching if you're fans of the Danganronpa franchise.

They made Maizono speak in Weebanese & changed Naegi's talent to the "Super Duper High School Screams-Like-A-Bitch." This series is a masterpiece. - OPZoroark

8 Friendship is Witchcraft

Loved by some and hated by others. This is a parody series based on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and only lasted 9 episodes. - Chaotixhero

Not an anime

9 Code MENT

This needs to be higher up. Top 5 at least.

The soup skit came from here, so ir is automatically amazing... But really though, you should watch it.

The quintessential one-man series, Code Ment takes Code Geass to levels of brilliant comical insanity that only a mind like PurpleEyesWTF could concieve. I would rate it higher, but sadly I can't find the button; there's only soup.

Whipped cream pourin' like waterfalls!

10 Pokemon 'Bridged

"we all live IN THE SACK! "

This is number 1, whatever that means...

The Greatest Reboot of a Series Ever! Episode #1 has become my defacto YouTube video I ask my son's to watch with me to celebrate "It's my Birthday? " - BobGoliath, The Hamlet of Selden, Long Island USA.

"Venomoth has evolved into Golbat to confuse our enemy! " - Koga (Pokemon 'Bridged) - OPZoroark

The Contenders

11 A Slap On Titan

The humour is priceless on this abridged series. Highly recommend to watch it. (Sarge's epic rant segment is a classic)

Extremely hilarious. Those who have watched the real anime Attack on Titan need to see this parody. Characters who you might not have liked in the actual series become your most loved in this abridged. The lists of references this abridged shares is too many to count.

I swear I never liked Armin, but having him as a messed up person with sick desires as well as wishing to be a dark overlord is just priceless. Also, Pastor Nick is bada** going savage on Mikasa.

12 Scootertrix the Abridged

The people who work on it are strange, but the series itself is highly entertaining.

It's pretty good, but it takes for ever for an upload

An overall well rounded series, with an intriguing story arc, decent humor, clever plot twists, and dramatic/ heartwarming moments.

13 Ultra Fast Pony

Also not an anime

Yet another My Little Pony parody series that is doing very well up to this day. It even has it's own wikia from what I've heard. - Chaotixhero

14 Mega Man Legends Abridged

Might be boring to some but kinda decent to most. - Chaotixhero

15 Noragami Abridged

"Uh... Kofuku's not here right now."
"I can hear her yelling at the plants."
"GROW, YOU LITTLE F***ERS! I didn't kill all those cats & grind them into fertilizer just so you'd shrivel up & die on me! " - OPZoroark

16 The Seven Deadly Schmucks

This is personally one of my favorites, would like it to be higher up this list.

Other than the princess voice this series is effing awesome

17 Sonic F

Obviously a parody of Sonic X that is pretty good depending on your taste of comedy. - Chaotixhero

18 Mentally Advanced Series

It's My Little Pony with taxes.

I feel as though the exaggeration of character flaws as a sort of dark mirror rather than a complete juxtaposition is interesting, both in this and its sequel the Nepotism Adventure Series.

19 Akame ga Kill Abridged
20 Seraph of the End Abridged

Super funny

21 Fairytale Abridged
22 Kuroko No Basket Abridged (KNBA)

"Hell I played basketball in America, where they invented black people! " - Kagami Taiga, KNBA - MasonOcker

This series only has one episode so far, but I still love it.

23 Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works Abridged

It's a pretty new one at the time of me writing this. But holy Actually Satan is it good.

Its only Two episodes in and it already supercedes most of this list. Not because they're bad, but because fsnubwa is that good. Not to mention Azure Crow's upload schedule, damn he's fast

24 Mega Man Abridged Warriors
25 Death Note Abridged Series (kpts4tv)
26 None Piece

Extremely silly.

Quick, concise, and extremely hilarious, None Piece completely turns the original One Piece characters upside down and their stories inside out. Every second is packed with insane comedy that you'll miss if you blink too long. Outstanding abridged series by PurpleEyesWTF.

27 Bleach (S) Abridged

Seriously underrated, how is this one so low!

This is literally one of the best abridged series. Sound, editing, jokes; they all start good and become excellent. Josh Groban is one compelling dude

Dude come on. this show is great from the start and only improves episode by episode

28 Mirai Nikki An Abridged Series

A seriously underrated and unknown series that deserves so much more attention. It's really good!

29 Abridge on Titan

Best AoT abridges series

30 Digimon Adventure Tri Abridged

Underrated, definitely best one

It is TFS level
Rule one we do not f*** with the hand! - Izzy

31 Naruto The Abridged Comedy Spoof Series Show (Ninjabridged)
32 Kampfer Abridged
33 Nullmetal Alchemist

Screw this for insulting such a perfect anime - TheDarkOne_221b

34 How To Be an Adventurer (DanMachi Abridged)

"I will smite you! " - Hestia
"You're the goddess of architecture. What are you gonna smite me with? A house? " - Bell - OPZoroark

35 Pokemon Origins Abridged
36 Sailor Moon Abridged
37 EvAbridged
38 Haroohee

Really underrated abridged series, it's so funny. - MasonOcker

39 Seven Deadly Slaps

Great Seven Deadly Sins abridged series. New, but has improved a lot already.

40 Dub of the North Star

Finally an abridged series so hilarious that it rivals TeamFourStar's Dragon Ball Z Abridged!

41 Dub of the North Star
