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

True Goku:"eat that hhhorse..."

2 Sword Art Online Abridged

The first episode starts out a little rough just like every other abridge series but damn do these guys knock it out of the park, they fixed sword art, I honestly consider this to be the true sword art.

Pure genius. I have lost track of how many times I've watched this. So many, I can have full conversations just with quotes from it. Literally fixes every problem with the original and then makes it a gazillion times better. For an awesome analysis of what makes SAO Abridged so great, check out Explanation Point's two videos about it.

It's better than the real one

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.

3 Yu-gi-oh Abridged

It's what you need to love more the original cartoon. Absolutely unique

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!

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 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.

4 Naruto: The Abridged series

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

Thugisa. Need I say any more?

Thugisa will always be canon for me now.

Thugisa. that's it that's the comment

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

6 Hellsing Ultimate Abridged

This abridgment is not my first favorite, but it manages to make Alucard an interesting and funny character. That is no small task.

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

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

It's really funny, has well made original songs, original animations sometimes, great character voice acting that is very similar to the original voice acting and sometimes completely different and hilarious. It's humor is weird and subtle but still hilarious. And has a lot of stupid puns that are great. This is a very weird show and if you like weird humor, this show is perfect for you.

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 A Slap On Titan

What, I actually have to justify this objective fact? Just watch it. How is this not in the top 10?

Oof I kinda want this to be higher. - ImJustSaiyan

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 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

12 Mega Man Legends Abridged

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

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 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.

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 Akame ga Kill Abridged
19 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.

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 Bleach (S) Abridged

Honestly this is my second favorite abridged series, and it deserves so much more love. The writing is fantastic and the entire thing just gets better as it goes on. The voices are great and the pacing is fantastic as well

Sound. Writing. VO cast. Editing. Everything is top notch - easily the best abridged I've ever seen. Made me nostalgic for when I first watched the original show as a kid.

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

25 Mega Man Abridged Warriors
26 Death Note Abridged Series (kpts4tv)
27 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.

28 Mirai Nikki An Abridged Series

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

29 Digimon Adventure Tri Abridged

Underrated, definitely best one

It is TFS level

34 Nullmetal Alchemist
35 Dub of the North Star

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

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

40 Seven Deadly Slaps

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

41 Magi: The Abridged Series of Magic
42 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. Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works adapts the Unlimited Blade Works route from the Fate/stay night visual novel.
43 Fake/Stay Night [UBW]
44 My Hero Abridged

My Hero Abridged, in my opinion is better than the actual show, because it not only reinvents characters but is also emotionally investing as well, I don't want to spoil it but I absolutely love all the episodes and it made a movie for the abridged show, not the actual movie for My Hero Academia, but a movie just using the episodes given to them and I love it to bits, from the beginning to the season finale that it gave us.
