Top Ten Best Abridged Anime Series

The Top Ten

1 Dragon Ball Z Abridged

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!

Created by Team Four Star, DBZA is known as one of the most popular parody series up to this day. It was so good that one of the members had a role as a creative character on Dragon Ball Xenoverse.

I learned something new. Mr. Popo is the strongest being in existence. No one shall break the rules of Popo's training.

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

2 Sword Art Online Abridged

I honestly believe that the abridged version of SAO is the actual series. SWE basically just took every flaw of SAO and turned the series an even better series. Now Kayaba has an actual reason to why he created the game! Kirito has more character! That guild that Kirito joined made more sense!
I suggest you drop the series and go watch this one instead, even though you enjoyed the original one. Trust me, you’ll love this one even more!

Absolutely hilarious and genuinely better than the majority of actual anime in terms of character building. I thought hellsing abridged was good when I watched that but this blew it out of the water

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.

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.)

3 Yu-gi-oh Abridged

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.

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

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

4 Naruto: The Abridged series

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

5 50% Off

Octopimp and sparkytheandroid take the best comedy, humor, and gay-ness from Free! Iwatobi Swim Club, and then amplify it by a factor of twelve, leaving a magnificent result that has really to be experienced first-hand by any abridging fan.

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

Let's just say the thug life kidnapped me. Characters are genuinely interesting!

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

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 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

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!

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!

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.

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.

Not an anime

9 A Slap On Titan

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

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.

10 Pokemon 'Bridged

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)

This is number 1, whatever that means...

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

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.

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

Whipped cream pourin' like waterfalls!

12 Mega Man Legends Abridged

Might be boring to some but kinda decent to most.

13 Ultra Fast Pony

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.

Also not an anime

14 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!"

15 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

16 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

17 Akame ga Kill Abridged

Waiting patiently for the next episode...

18 Sonic F

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

19 Seraph of the End Abridged
20 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.

21 Fairytale Abridged
22 Kuroko No Basket Abridged (KNBA)

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

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

23 Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works Abridged

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

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

24 None Piece

Hahaahahaahahaahaha "I am all rubber before you ask yes yes it is" that made me laugh. luffys voice was funny great jokes and soome weird ones too but great great series except there's only 9 episodes.

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.

Extremely silly.

25 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.

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
