Top 10 Anime Series That Get Too Much Hate

As an anime fan, I will admit some of my favorite anime series are overrated and could be better, but those anime series also tend to get a lot of hate. So now I made a list of anime series that get too much hate. Please respect my opinions.

The Top Ten

1 Sword Art Online Sword Art Online Sword Art Online is a series of Japanese light novels written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by abec. In 2012, it received an anime adaptation produced by A-1 Pictures and the SAO Project, and is directed by Tomohiko Ito . The first season is divided into two arcs known as "Aincrad" and "Fairy Dance". more.

I'll admit, the anime series may be overrated and could do better with the flaws it has, but the hate for this anime is getting so annoying! It may not be the best anime ever, but it's my personal favorite along with Gurren Lagann. It's all about haters trying to say stuff like, Gary Stu that, incest that, Alfheim sucks that! It's so aggravating! Hate, hate, hate! Waste of time! The hate was the main reason I watched Sword Art Online in the first place. In my opinion, I loved that anime and it wasn't that bad. Sword Art Online haters can come and kiss my a$$ any day. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I already said I recognize the flaws with the anime. BUT, there is no denying this anime gets too much hate. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

*Sighs* It seems like every day on MyAnimeList.Net, Sword Art Online's score keeps going down. It used to be somewhere in the range of the 8's, but now it's only on the high 7's. I swear, it's just pure bandwagon when it comes to the hate for this anime. I wish people would stop hating on it and look more on the positive aspects of the anime. Instead of just having high expectations for it, maybe they would like it more if they just watched it for the enjoyment of it. That's what I think most people who hate Sword Art Online fail to realize. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

So many people seem to hate the anime for no good reason. Sometimes I think it's because some people dislike it just be they need something to hate for the sake of being a jerk.

Most people I met hate this. I mean, what is there to hate. Sigh

2 Naruto Naruto Naruto is an anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto. The manga was later adapted into a television anime, which was produced by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex. It premiered across Japan on the terrestrial TV Tokyo and other TX Network stations on October 3, 2002. The first series more.

While I'm not into Naruto, I think Naruto gets a lot of hate. Before Sword Art Online came along, Naruto was that anime that was infamous for attracting a lot of hate. And I do agree with the fans that while there may be too much fillers, Naruto isn't that bad an anime series. So I think instead of bashing on Naruto for little things like too much flashbacks, you should actually watch it if you're just hating even though you haven't watched it yet or watch another anime instead of being an annoying hater. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Could it be the hate that comes from the fillers?

3 Attack on Titan Attack on Titan Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama, is one of the most popular Japanese anime series to be released. It was first watched in Japan during 2013 and was dubbed in English to be watched in America in 2014. It is best known for its emotional moments, more.

One of those anime series that get a lot of hate even though people haven't seen it yet. Sure, Attack on Titan might have some rabid fans and is far from flawless in terms of too much dialogue and slow pacing, but other than that, Attack on Titan is a really good anime series. The first season ended with a bang and I can't wait for Season 2. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Sure, the story had slow pacing and all, but it was actually a great series and I can't wait for Season 2. - zerolamasta

People always hate on this anime for it being popular. So what? It's great! - MontyPython

Why the heeeck is that anime in this list it was awesome

4 Kill la Kill Kill la Kill Kill la Kill is an anime television series produced by Trigger. In Kill la Kill, Ryuko Matoi transfers to a new high school in order to find her father's murderer.

This anime is actually pretty good. Yes the outfits are pretty skimpy and the cuss words are pretty high but through all that the story plot is amazing. The fight scenes are also amazing. Not to mention some of the characters are very rememberable. Even though its not the best anime its not the worst either. - WolfyChloe

Kill la Kill is more than just fanservice! Sure, the outfits might be too skimpy and the anime can be a bit crazy at times, but I loved Kill la Kill! All fanservice aside, this anime is actually pretty good for what it is! Awesome fighting scenes, a surprisingly interesting plot and story, great characters, and an epic music soundtrack! Although I wouldn't recommend it for anime beginners, for those who have seen enough anime, I would totally recommend this anime! Haters can come at me for all I know! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It doesn't deserve to be an anime it was really awful and horrible

Only pathetic perverts and ugly lesbian would like that crap

5 Dragon Ball Z Dragon Ball Z Dragon Ball Z is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation. Dragon Ball Z follows the adventures of Goku who, along with the Z Warriors, defends the Earth against evil. The action adventures are entertaining and reinforce the concept of good versus evil. Dragon Ball Z teaches valuable more.

Sigh. Some people just can't put up with the legacy of Dragon Ball Z. While I wouldn't call it the best anime ever, I do recall watching some episodes and clips of it, and I like a few things about them, like the funny moments and nostalgically awesome transformations and fights. Although I'm not a Dragon Ball Z fan, I don't think it's necessary to hate on the fans for something you don't like. And it isn't that bad. You want bad? You're looking at Boku no Pico or School Days, not Dragon Ball Z! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

People just hate on this because it's popular. Plus it was made about decades earlier than most of the popular shonen series nowadays. It's the best of its time, and Naruto, One Piece, Bleach and Fairy Tail are all inspired by it. Dragon Ball is the greatest, as it has changed the whole shonen genre. - Goku02

6 Neon Genesis Evangelion Neon Genesis Evangelion Neon Genesis Evangelion, commonly referred to as Evangelion or Eva, is a Japanese animated television series produced by Gainax and Tatsunoko Production, and directed by Hideaki Anno.

While I still prefer Gurren Lagann and haven't seen Evangelion yet, now that I have matured a bit, I think Evangelion is an anime series that shouldn't be taken lightly. Sure, the main lead might be a bit of a wimp, so what? Like fans say, the main lead is probably the most realistic anime character to date and I would totally want to watch this anime. Not to mention it's story is both intriguing and psychologically-thrilling as well. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Oh, the hate is annoying. We get it! You hate Shinji! So what? Next you'll be telling me Future Diary is awful because of Yukiteru. One character is not enough to make an anime bad. And if you hate it because it's popular, then you are being ridiculous. If you don't like it, keep it to yourself. Quit whining and ignore it instead of being a hater. - Elric-san

7 Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny
8 Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist is an anime series adapted from the manga of the same name by Hiromu Arakawa. It is about two brothers, Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric, trying to restore their bodies after failing at bringing their mother back to life. It aired in 2003 and was remade as Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood more.

Yes. Unfortunately, Fullmetal Alchemist does have haters. Sure, there may be some insane FMA fanboys, but you shouldn't let a fan base ruin an anime for you! Fullmetal Alchemist is considered as one of the best anime of all time! I haven't watched FMA yet, but I plan to sometime in the future! Highly recommended for anime beginners! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Honestly, I don't see a lot of hate in FMA. Even though I enjoyed the 2003 adaptation I was still disappointed by it. but changed my mind after I watched Conqueror of Shambala. - BM55

9 Fruits Basket Fruits Basket

In my opinion this anime is wonderful. Yes some of the characters can get annoying but that doesn't stop the story in the anime. Its funny heartwarming and there's plenty of romance. I know there's a lot of hate to it but if you hate certain anime's and such don't dwell on it, get over it and don't bother others with your hate.

10 Tokyo Ghoul Tokyo Ghoul

Okay, while I still think Parasyte is better than Tokyo Ghoul and I haven't seen Tokyo Ghoul yet, I still think this deserves to be on the list. To me, I still think Tokyo Ghoul is quite beautiful in ways that I can't describe now and I would love to see it. Sure, there might be too much censorship and some inconsistencies with animation and original manga source content, but in all honesty, Tokyo Ghoul seems to be a legitimate anime series that I might enjoy. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Contenders

11 Future Diary Future Diary

True. Yukiteru may be the biggest anime wimp of all time, but Future Diary still told a unique story. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It does deverse to be on this list the ending was really bad and disaponting yuki didn't deserve to live..the anime turned to be really stupid

12 Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Mobile Suit Gundam SEED
13 Puella Magi Madoka Magica Puella Magi Madoka Magica Puella Magi Madoka Magica is a 2011 Japanese anime television series produced by Shaft and Aniplex, directed by Akiyuki Shinbo, written by Gen Urobuchi, music by Yuki Kajiura, opening sang by ClariS, ending by Kalafina (sometimes by the seiyuus) and original characters by Ume Aoki. It also has 3 movies, more.

Guys, this is far from just a Sailor Moon ripoff. I may not have watched this anime yet, but I heard it's really good. Madoka Magica isn't just you're average magical girl anime. I have heard it starts out bright as first, then actually gets dark later over the series. So if you hate this anime but haven't watched it yet, I suggest watching it for yourself instead of continuing to hate it. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This is probably my favorite anime. I really like it, and it is very far from the average magical girl anime. Watch it now, please! It's great! I loved it! Almost all anime is great, but this series really stood out to me. - SaoirseSeal

I think the reason this gets hate is because of it's popularity. Almost all popular animes(especially the ones that are in the 1st page of the popular anime list in MAL, Madoka Magica is on the 1st page! ) get hated for no clear reason - MLPFan

14 K-On! K-On!

It being a moe anime doesn't always mean it's bad! - PerfectImpulseX

15 Fairy Tail Fairy Tail Fairy Tail is a manga franchise created by Hiro Mashima. The manga has been adapted into an anime series produced by A-1 Pictures and Satelight, which began broadcasting in Japan on October 12, 2009. Additionally, A-1 Pictures and Satelight have developed seven original video animations and an animated more.

I think they are so ignorant when it comes to its content and can't accept that it's a fantasy with fantasy themes when it comes to violent when not graphic if you're obsessed with stuff like Anime (and no it does not have to Anime) that have blood and gore like Tokyo Ghoul, Elfen lied and Attack On Titan you have a problem and is not mature enough for good story plots characters with personalities and of course qualities and if that's not truthful enough I don't know what is

I think the only thing that people hate Fairy Tail for is it's plot armor. - Pegasister12

The only reason why people hate Fairy Tail because it has no blood or swearing

There is swearing in it, but barely any blood.

16 Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt

I love this anime

I feel like this show gets too much hate... - DoritosAreLife

17 Yuugiou (Yu-Gi-Oh!)
18 Lucky Star Lucky Star Lucky star is an anime that first aired (april 8th, 2007 to September 16th, 2007) in Japan. The anime follows the daily lives of Konata Izumi, Kagami and Tsukasa hiiragi, and Miyuki Takura. The show is best known for the cute "moe" characters. The target audience is shouen.

Same as K-On. - PerfectImpulseX

19 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.

I don't really get why the ANIME is hated for? It's flaws?

Remove the main character and it is 10% less hated

Here's how it goes, I look up Ash Ketchum, and it's not long until I find an insult on him. And even worse, The Gamer thinks its ruining the Pokemon Franchise! WHAT!? THAT'S BULLPOOP!

In my opinion it deserves it's hate.

20 One Piece One Piece One Piece is a manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. The manga has been adapted into an original video animation (OVA) produced by Production I.G in 1998, and an anime series produced by Toei Animation, which began broadcasting in Japan in 1999 and has aired 749 episodes to date.

The one piece anime deserves hate for being so much worse than the manga. You can't take two chapters of a manga and make it into a 23 minute episode. It ruins the pacing

This series gets TOO MUCH LOVE in fact. - Goku02
