How is this not number 1? Even Lucky Star doesn't make anime look as bad as what this anime does! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Okay I haven't even seen this show and I know that it gives anime a bad reputation. Why? Because literally all of the internet articles and other complaining anime fans say that it's a porno anime. - Anonymousxcxc

You know an anime is odd when it has crossdressing naked people and incest(kinda) all in one - HelloImDeadInside

How is this not on here yet?!

2 School Days School Days An anime series was developed by TNK with joint production by Avex Entertainment, Lantis, Marvelous Entertainment, Pony Canyon and Jinnan Studio. more.

The ending is horrible. Plain disgusting. The starting was equally disgusting too. Come to think of it, the anime as a whole was disgusting. - Kiteretsunu

Should be No. 1. What everyone thinks when they hear the word "Anime". - wingedtank

"Big boobies: the anime."
I got better ones
Pedophiles's Fantasy: the anime
Because There's 11-15 here but expect that sensei women

This is literally what people think of if they hear "anime" - Not_A_Weeaboo

Big boobies: the anime.

I can't take the dude seriously anymore after he starts sucking on breasts - styLIShT

He sucks breast milk to be powerful?

6 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

Pokemon is nothing like other anime

Pokemon is the only anime 100% kid friendly :l
Shouldn't be on the list, I found anime by this show.

No, Pokemon doesn't give anime a bad reputation. Pokemon is a kid's anime, so you cannot compare it with an anime, let's say, Full metal Alchemist. Anime come in different categories and everyone has its own importance. In fact Pokemon is one of the best kid's anime in the market. (it's not a shounen anime). - Kiteretsunu

Well it makes people who haven't seen other anime think anime is for kids. Of course this gives anime a bad reputation. - SelfDestruct

This shouldn't be Pokemon does not give anime a bad name at all. - egnomac

Fillers for everyone.

I don't really watch Naruto, but I think it's the Narutards that give anime a bad reputation, not the anime itself. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

11 Kiss x Sis Kiss x Sis

It KINDA is incest but not really... wait would it be considered incest if the girls who are the guy's step-sisters flirt and he tries hard not to flirt back - HelloImDeadInside

True. Non-Anime fans probably think that anime is just incest.

12 Bobobobobo
13 Sakura Trick

At first, it may seem interesting for a couple of episodes, but then it turns stale and is a lot focused on the kissing scenes - styLIShT

14 To Love-Ru To Love-Ru
15 Cross Ange: Rondo of Angel and Dragon Cross Ange: Rondo of Angel and Dragon
16 K-On! K-On!

Maybe to beginners the anime might be too much due to how much fanservice it has, but if you're an anime fan, Kill la Kill is actually quite a sweet treat for anyone who loves a good anime. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

But I love Kill LA Kill. - Tia-Harribel

wait what? - HelloImDeadInside

One my favorite anime but I understand why it's here.
My question is that why Fullmetal Alchemist is here. It's one of the greatest anime franchises (especially Brotherhood) and one I would recommend to beginners or anime haters.
