Top Ten Best Abridged Anime Series


The Top Ten

1 Dragon Ball Z Abridged

Should be Number 1

The ending of the cell games has made the series sooo much more amazing then it ever has been! Like Goku was actually smart at the end!?! Who could have called that out! No one, cause we all that he as dumb as crap!

This is too funny

Ridiculously clever

2 Sword Art Online Abridged

Honestly, this show is even better than the canon show. It's characters are more likable, and the bonds created between the characters are much more believable, and less forced. Not to even mention the humor in the series, which is absolutely perfect. This series deserves to be closer to the top of the list, as it gives us a better series than what we were given in the first place (in my opinion.) - MasonOcker

WATCH IT! You don't even need to see the original show, in fact I would recommend not seeing the actual show. Kirito is not a bland character in this series and the story makes more sense and of course it's got humour. Season 1=11 Episodes about 15 minutes per episode and the finale is 35 minutes. Seriously watch it.

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.

The series is still going on but the way the character have dynamic and an actual development is truly amazing. They make connections to characters that were just thrown away and use them throughout the series. Kirito is a likeable character. He hates people but soon has a heart for them at the end. They show how Kirito is just a normal teenager that's not experienced a perfect life and makes the storyline fit together and make sense. They make Asuna look better with her Yandere but Tsundere side. I can't help but fall in love the the messed up *ss and the b*tch in the abridged. I can watch this over and over again and never get bored of it. "Winners don't use drugs. They use steroids. In which you should use lots of drugs".

3 Yu-gi-oh Abridged

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

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!

First abridged series. Funny story, catchphrases, and characters. The show is able to make the stale seasons and episodes of Yugioh hilarious.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged is great! I love how they use actual dialog from the English Show to make fun of 4Kids Entertainment(because 4Kids sucks), and they use it to kind of make the plot or event funnier! I was laughing so hard at episode 25 when Téa sung "Something There" from Beauty and the Beast, but when it was Yami's turn to sing, he made the song sooo much funnier! Yu-Gi-Oh! is life, and so is it's own abridged series.

Fun Fact: Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series was the first ever abridged series, beginning in 2006.

4 Naruto: The Abridged series

'And I'm Gaara. Of the FUNK.'

5 50% Off

I love this abridged series. I tried searching for other abridged series but none were as good as this. This is just gold!

I've watched this so many times and shown it to so many appreciative people...

Watched the whole thing twice in a row

Thugisa is the best - Haumea

6 Hellsing Ultimate Abridged

I love most of the others on this list, especially Sword Art Online abridged, but this one is just so perfect. It was my first abridged series and it's still my favorite!

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

It has truly evolved

You know what they say, "B*tches love cannons! "

7 Danganronpa Abridged Thing

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.

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

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 Pokemon 'Bridged

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

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.

"Hey Rudy, I challenje u to a battul! " - Ash Ketchum (Pokemon 'Bridged) {The spelling errors are how he pronounces it}

10 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.

The Contenders

11 Code MENT

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.

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

Whipped cream pourin' like waterfalls!

"Oh You Came Alright"

"God I Love You"

"Bitch Tornado"

12 Scootertrix the Abridged

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

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

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
17 Mentally Advanced Series

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.

It's My Little Pony with taxes.

18 Sonic F

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

19 Akame ga Kill Abridged
20 Seraph of the End Abridged

Super funny

21 Fairytale Abridged
22 Kuroko No Basket Abridged (KNBA)

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

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

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 Bleach (S) Abridged

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

Seriously underrated, how is this one so low!

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

26 Death Note Abridged Series (kpts4tv)
27 Mirai Nikki An Abridged Series

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

28 Abridge on Titan

Best AoT abridges series

29 Naruto The Abridged Comedy Spoof Series Show (Ninjabridged)
30 None Piece

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.

31 Kampfer Abridged
32 Nullmetal Alchemist

Screw this for insulting such a perfect anime - TheDarkOne_221b

33 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

34 Digimon Adventure Tri Abridged

Underrated, definitely best one

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

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 Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works is a 2014–2015 action, thriller, fantasy anime based on the visual novel Fate/stay night produced by Type-Moon.
