Top 10 Animes with the Stupidest Plot

Have you had any animes you just wanted to punch in the face because of their plot? Well, here's your chance to prove your high otaku-ness. Say which is your least favorite anime plot EVER!
The Top Ten
1 Bobobo-bo Bobo-bo Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo is a Japanese anime and manga series created by Yoshio Sawai. It originally aired from 2003 to 2005 and is known for its surreal, nonsensical humor. The series revolves around the protagonist, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, as he fights against an evil empire that wants to shave the world's population... read more

...I don't even know where the heck this anime came from. I haven't watched it, but I have seen clips of it and read about it, and it seems to be ridiculous! I'm all for uniqueness, but this is going a little bit too far...

If the plot's too dumb for a 12-year-old, you really need to step it up. Though to be fair, I was a pretty harsh critic as a kid.

It's just about some random dude fighting an evil bald empire with his nose hair! Retarded, right?

2 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. It was first broadcast in Japan on April 1, 1997, in the United States... read more

While on its own the anime can be good, there have just been SO many series. Like, it's wash, rinse, repeat with each new game being made into a show. Ash wants to be the best. He gets a female and male sidekick. The female wants a separate path. Ash fails in his goal, and he goes to another region.

Like, even the GAMES have a better plot than the anime.

I like Pokemon, but the anime sucks. It doesn't follow the Pokemon rules.

3 Seikon no Qwaser Seikon no Qwaser is a Japanese manga and anime series created by Hiroyuki Yoshino and Kenetsu Satō. The series, which debuted in 2006, incorporates elements of action and supernatural themes, centering on individuals who can manipulate elements like iron and copper. The show has been controversial... read more

A series where characters battle using various elements - not like water and fire, but off of the periodic table of elements? Sounds awesome!

...Wait, they get their powers recharged HOW!?!

4 Midori Days

A boy wakes one day to find out a girl is his hand!

5 Beyblade Beyblade is a 2001 Japanese anime television series based on Takao Aoki's manga series of the same name, which itself is based on the Beyblade spinning tops.
6 Soul Eater Not!

This is a disgrace to the original show. Animations are terrible. Plots are terrible. Characters are terribly thought out. What's to like?

The opening is annoying. The character designs changed in ways that make you want to cringe. Horrendous. Asymmetrical garbage.

This spin-off sucks. Enough said.

7 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... read more
8 Boku No Pico Boku no Pico is an anime series of three OVA episodes created by Katsuhiko Takayama. It was released to DVD on September 17, 2006.
9 Familiar of Zero The Familiar of Zero is a Japanese light novel series written by Noboru Yamaguchi and illustrated by Eiji Usatsuka. It was adapted into various forms of media, including anime, manga, and visual novels. The story revolves around a young magician named Louise and her human familiar, Saito, exploring... read more

Isn't it just a tad bit creepy that a girl with pink hair keeps a poor teenage boy as a pet? Child abuse!

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

The twelve television episodes of the anime aired in Japan between July 3, 2007 and September 27, 2007 on TV Kanagawa. On July 4, 2007 Chiba TV and... read more
The Contenders
11 DearS
12 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.

I agree with RaineSage. But since most of us are humans that CAN eat and know what we are doing, this anime is becoming useless and pointless.

It would be useful if a cyborg watched it... one that couldn't eat.

Bright and colorful girls talking about useless garbage!

13 Mars of Destruction
14 Death Note Death Note is a Japanese television drama anime series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. The show is centered around Light Yagami - a promising highschooler and aspiring detective with a strong sense of "justice".

Death Note is boring. I couldn't finish it because I was bored to tears.

15 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.

Clothing taking over humans? What kind of a dumb plot is that? This has to be the worst plot possible in an action anime!

16 Bible Black
17 Hetalia Hetalia: Axis Powers is a Japanese webcomic turned anime by Hidekaz Himaruya that debuted in 2009. The series anthropomorphizes countries and depicts them as characters interacting in both humorous and historical scenarios, primarily during World War I and World War II. The show has been lauded for... read more

I found Hetalia very difficult to watch, but I don't see how it had a stupid plot. It had no plot at all!

The dumbest anime I ever saw. So racist to Italians it's not even funny. Even the name is short for 'hetare Italia' ("worthless Italy"), and the Italy character is a wimpy kid who eats pasta all day.

18 Zatch Bell! Debuting in 2003, this anime series is based on a manga by Makoto Raiku. The storyline involves a boy who partners with a magical creature to battle in a tournament for the title of the Mamodo king. The show is praised for its unique concept and emotional depth.
19 Eiken Eiken is a fanservice-themed manga and anime series created by Seiji Matsuyama. The story depicts the life of schoolboy Densuke Mifune after he is forced into the mysterious Eiken Club.
20 Akikan

An anime where you drink from a soda can, and it turns into a girl with soda-related superpowers.

21 Sleeping with Hinako
22 Kiss Him, Not Me!
23 My Girlfriend is a Shob*tch
24 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,... read more

My friend got me to watch this. I like it because it works so much better than sleeping pills.

25 Digimon “Digimon” is a term commonly used to describe a variety of 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),... read more
