Top Ten Best Abridged Anime Series

The Top Ten
1 Dragon Ball Z Abridged

This series makes Freeza's,Vegeta's and Cell's personality better than the dub one.
Piccolo's fusion tech in this series more than fusion dance or potaras, nail and kami were even talking in his head.
And the ost of gohan turns super saiyan 2 for the first time was incredible even in the father son kamehameha was the best.
I wish TFS continue the to ark and even super

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.

2 Sword Art Online Abridged

Great series! I watched this when I was younger and some jokes flew over my little head, but coming back when I got older I enjoyed it even more! Definitely deserves this spot in the top tens.

This show is hilarious. The characters interact better than they do in the original, and now I actually like Suguha. Maybe a second muffin would've helped when the original SAO was choking around episode 15.

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!

I believe this deserves to be number one, and by far. Not only is the humor spot on [that alone would have at least put it in the top 5] but it fixes the logical inconsistencies of the show and creates a great story. The Abridged series actually brought me to tears at one point, something the original never really did for me�"in fact, I felt nothing for any of them. Not only is it a great Abridged series, it's an amazing show in general with fleshed out and developed characters and a MUCH more believable storyline than the original product.

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
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!

Yess! You can watch 50% off thinking of it as it's own show. It's based off Free! And is just a joy. It's 100% funny and Nagisa is everyone's favorite character.

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

6 Hellsing Ultimate Abridged

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!

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

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!

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

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.

8 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.

9 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.

10 A Slap On Titan

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?

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.

12 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...

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 Mega Man Legends Abridged

Might be boring to some but kinda decent to most.

15 Noragami Abridged
16 The Seven Deadly Schmucks

This is personally one of my favorites, would like it to be higher up this list.

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 Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works Abridged

The dialogue is super snappy and the editing is superb. The voice cast is incredible too! Everything about it feels so professional. Very glad to have found this series.

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.

23 Kuroko No Basket Abridged (KNBA)

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

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

24 None Piece

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.

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.

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

Seriously underrated, how is this one so low!
