Dear visitor who just commented : At least write spoiler alert before the spoiler! You belong in Sailor Moon! - Skullkid755

I did not want kamina to die! It was depressing in a way...

I may have finished the anime, but you do realize you just revealed a major spoiler to everyone! Keep major plot points to yourself! But I did wish Kamina didn't die. That is all I will say. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Nobody hates TTGL

23 Clannad Clannad

Okay, I'm not usually into romance anime, but considering I am now a huge fan of Sword Art Online and I have watched Toradora!, I don't think I would hate Clannad. It doesn't seem so bad. Like Sword Art Online, it isn't the best anime ever, nor is it the worst anime ever. Plus, it wouldn't hurt to watch Clannad. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I want to watch it! I know a lot of people hate it, but hey, if there are people who hate Sword Art Online and I still like Sword Art Online, then if there are people who hate Clannad, screw them, I'm watching Clannad no matter what they think! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I just. Saw parts. Of it.

24 Samurai Champloo Samurai Champloo Samurai Champloo is a Japanese anime series developed by Manglobe. Samurai Champloo is set in an alternate version of Edo-era Japan with an anachronistic, predominantly hip hop, setting. It follows Mugen, an impudent and freedom-loving vagrant swordsman; Jin, a composed and stoic rōnin; and Fuu, a more.

I'm not a big fan of samurai champloo but I guess it's not that bad...

25 Clannad After Story Clannad After Story

It's pretty much in the same situation its predecessor Clannad is in. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

26 One Punch Man One Punch Man One-Punch Man is an ongoing, online, web comic, which was later adapted into a Manga and Anime series . Created by ONE in 2009, It gained popularity, and soon after, went viral in 2012, surpassing 7 . 9 million views . One-Punch Man (OPM for short) focuses on the protagonist Saitama (Who is named after more.

I do have to agree. People either love it for the awesome fights, hilarious comedy, and the badass characters, or people hate it for the overpowered main lead that is Saitama and the perception that the fights are too boring. Oh well, I haven't watched it yet, but I will probably enjoy it. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The animation is gorgeous. I can tell that a lot of effort was put into it. Right amount of gore, not that much fanservice, and no friendship speeches.

Really? I never saw anyone hate one punch man

Not a big fan but I like watching. It

27 Elfen Lied Elfen Lied

Either you get a grasp and understanding of the show, or you don't, which leads to either you love the show if the former, or you hate it if the latter.

People either see it as a masterpiece or as gory porn. It's gotta be either of those two. Of course, I think I might like Elfen Lied. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Don't recommend for young kids

28 Sword Art Online II Sword Art Online II Sword Art Online II is the second season of the Sword Art Online anime series, produced by A-1 Pictures and directed by Tomohiko Ito. It is divided into the "Phantom Bullet", "Calibur" and "Mother's Rosario" arcs.
29 Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Mobile Suit Gundam SEED
30 Danmachi Danmachi

This anime sucks. It's just a harem series that's trying so hard to be the next Sword Art Online.

JavelinGXMk10 is insane


31 Black Butler Black Butler Black Butler is a Japanese anime television series produced by A-1 Pictures and premiered in October, 2008.
32 High School DxD High School DxD

Considering the intense amount of fanservice contained in this guilty pleasure ecchi harem action anime, it should be no surprise High School DxD will have its lovers and its haters. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The ultimate fanservice anime. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The worst anime I've ever watched bruh it's just harem and ecchi NOTHING ELSE and the plot?...i don't see any

33 Dimension W Dimension W
34 Fate/Stay Night Fate/Stay Night Fate/stay night is a Japanese visual novel and anime series by Type-Moon. There are three story lines in the visual novel: Fate, Unlimited Blade Works, and Heaven's Feel. A 24-episode anime series based on the Fate route and a film based on the Unlimited Blade Works route were made by Studio Deen. A more.

Damn, I just searched up some Crunchyroll forums and it seems the Unlimited Blade Works anime adaptation is also criticized as well. Whatever, I love any anime that isn't bad. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I think most people don't like Fate/Stay Night because of the 2006 Studio Deen anime adaptation. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

If you browsed Crunchyroll forums, you would be more aware of the fact that Fate/Stay Night has lovers and haters on its hands. So pretty much, this is Ufotable's Sword Art Online in a way. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

35 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.

Why is this even here?

Many people loved the anime for it's animation, production value and emotional moments.
But many others hate it also because of how Madoka became powerful at the end.
It's ok, though - MLPFan

36 Blue Exorcist Blue Exorcist Blue Exorcist is an anime series directed by Tensai Okamura and produced by A-1 Pictures, which adapts the Blue Exorcist manga written and illustrated by Kazue Kato.

I have not met a single person who said they hated this anime.

37 The Asterisk War The Asterisk War

Not a lot of people seem to like The Asterisk War since they think it's unoriginal, generic, and boring. However, I watched all 12 episodes and I actually enjoyed the anime and found it fun to watch. I know a YouTuber named Digibro hates it, but I don't give a crap about that. I plan to watch Season 2 soon. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

38 Digimon Digimon “Digimon” is a term commonly used to sum up several Japanese anime series based on the Bandai virtual pet brand “Digimon” (Dejimon). As of 2017, there are 7 series: “Digimon Adventure” (1999), “Digimon 02” (a.k.a. “Digimon Adventure 02”) (2000), “Digimon Tamers” (2001), “Digimon more.

I can't believe I forgot to add this anime series! Yeah, most people hate it because they think it's a ripoff of Pokemon, but in my opinion, I just love the Digimon anime and I just love the Pokemon games. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

39 Guilty Crown Guilty Crown Guilty Crown is a 2011 Japanese anime television series produced by Production I.G which aired on Fuji TV's noitamina program block from October 2011. The story revolves around Shu Ouma, a high school boy who inadvertently obtains an ability called "Power of the King" that enables him to draw out items more.

Yeah, Guilty Crown seems to have quite some mixed popularity over here on TheTopTens. I know my buddy Boris (aka CastlevaniaFanboy128) doesn't like it, but considering my tastes in anime, I might like Guilty Crown. All I need is to know where I can watch it. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

40 Teen Titans Teen Titans Teen Titans is an American animated television series created by Glen Murakami, based on the DC Comics characters of the same name.
