Top Ten Worst Anime Fanbases

I'm a fan of most of these shows myself, but I have to admit their fanbases are unbearable at times. And just to clarify, not all fans are like this. Just a few of them.
The Top Ten
1 Fairy Tail Fanbase 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 feature film, Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess. The series ended its initial run on March 30, 2013. A new series premiered on TV Tokyo on April 5, 2014.

NaLu, Natsu and Erza fans can be pretty rude. Shipping wars occur frequently in this fandom, and most characters are fairly overrated, especially Natsu and Erza. Natsu has no chance of beating Naruto, and Erza is VERY far from being the strongest anime female. It's a fact.

Not gonna lie, we can get pretty rabid and annoying real fast. And don't even get me started on the shipping wars.

2 Sword Art Online Fanbase 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". It has also received a second season, titled Sword Art Online II.

So apparently I met a couple of people that decided that Sword Art Online was the best sport anime because apparently Sword Art Online is a EA sport. And then started to argue that SAO is better than every single other series because Kirito is a great Character. And when I said that I think certains anime were better they started using every single insult and just go on a Rant about how SAO is the best anime ever while insulting me.

I don't like the show and I can tell you the haters are worse. But that does not excuse how bad the fans are.

Kirito is my favourite SAO character, but he's definitely not the best anime swordsman. Far from it.

I'm not that bad...

3 One Punch Man Fanbase 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 the prefecture Saitama) as he goes on to find someone who has power even remotely close to his, all while teaching his Disciple Genos how to go stronger, and ranking up in the Hero Association .

Saitama can defeat whoever pitted against him with ONE PUNCH!... I'm tired of this argument.

Saitama can not kill everyone in fiction with one punch.

4 Naruto Fanbase 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 lasted 220 episodes, while Naruto: Shippuden, a sequel to the original series, has been airing since February 15, 2007. In addition to the anime series, Studio Pierrot has developed eleven movies and several original video animations. Other types of merchandise include light novels, video games, and trading cards developed by several companies.

Why this isn't no.1? I mean, these guys are the most immature & childish guys I have ever seen. May be even worse than Dbz Fanbase.

These guy's hates some characters too much. Constantly keep on praising others like Itachi, Naruto & Kakashi. While keep on downplaying characters like Sakura, Sasuke, Obito & all. But seriously Kakashi was great Character though compared to the other two(Naruto & Itachi). On the other hand there's Naruto, who can't win a single fight without Plot Armor/Ass Pull.

And seriously no other Fandom had the word "retard" suit to them as Naruto. "Narutards"

It has many good fans but majority are kind of idiots who think Naruto is best anime in any genre. One guy had an argument that Naruto is best sports anime! 'what? Naruto a sports anime? ' My reaction
Naruto fans are bound to have arguments and give pointless explanation to justify how good Naruto is.

Some Naruto fans are disrespecting the anime and author too. For example: saintokage( a Instagram page over 30k followers) his/her posts are not only disrespecting the anime but the author too

Always compare Naruto with other anime and think that Naruto is the best.The fandom thinks that they are superior to others because Naruto is their #1. Very Toxic fanbase

5 Dragon Ball Z Fanbase 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 character virtues such as teamwork, loyalty, and trustworthiness.

HUGE DBZ fan here, and just look at my username and you can tell how big of a Goku fan I am, but his power is too overrated. He's very powerful indeed, but not THAT powerful. He's most definitely not gonna beat Superman Prime. I doubt Zeno could either.

They act like Goku can beat every anime character. Why do they care if Goku can beat every other anime character? He can't just jump into other anime and fight the characters.

I love DBZ but sadly most people who watch it act like they are 5. My favorite character is Goku, Beerus, and 17 but these 3 characters happen to have an ANNOYING fanbase. And don´t forget Vegetas fans who act like their life was ruined when Vegeta gets clapped.

Goku is strong and he can be beat.

6 One Piece Fanbase 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 851 episodes to date.

Just how is it fun to talk about the same anime for decades and try to put every other anime down just cause they like OP? Probably most of the fanbase are depressed kids whose parents doesn't love them, so they attack other fanbases and at least get some attention and this makes them feel like they exist. Truly the most pathetic fanbase to ever exist.

If you ever encounter OP fan in the wild just ignore them if you don't want to loose your brain cells.

I'm in this fanbase and its worse than any other. They act like oda's a god, refuse to hear criticism. They still cry about Ace. The act like this show has so many sad and emotional moments. I can name many sad moments but they overhype them. Some say that Luffy can beat Naruto. They also say it's the best anime and give no argument.

UGH, THIS ANIME FANBASE. I hate the fans because they act way more childish than DBZ fans. I hate the characters fanbases like Zoro's fanbase because all they talk about is ZORO and don't appreciate any of the other great characters of the show. Like for example, when Luffy defeated Doflamingo or when Sanji saved Ussop from Jabra, the Zorotards are like ANYWAY ABOUT ZORO. In their world Zoro is Love, Zoro is life, bruh just chill we get it you like Zoro, I do too. And if any of you Zorotards blame me for being part of another fanbase, think twice because I hate all One piece fanbases.

They always think One Piece is the best anime and if you disagree they get HOSTILE. Also, One Piece fans like to complain about other anime's troupes and cliches when One Piece does the same. For Ex: Fairy Tail friendship power. One Piece is literally the same as Fairy Tail.

7 Attack on Titan Fanbase 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, apocalyptic setting, and its dramatic story line, and action packed scenes.

this fanbase will either defend that ending till their dying breath or tell you attack on titan was nazi propaganda the entire time. No winning here, just enjoy it if you can (except maybe the ending)

The fanbase used to be okay but then they got worse and worse over the years. Now that Season 4 has come out, Eren fans have shown their true colours by being really arrogant and obnoxious. They have ruined the once good reputation this fandom had.

Got some news. They send death threats to an animator in a Season 4 episode because they didn't like it.
Amazing series but the fanbase not only is toxic, they are the whole swamp. Put this in the Top 3.

The Attack on Titan fanbase in 2013 was so unbearable to deal with. Now that a season 2 is coming, that aspect of the fanbase will arise from the depths of hell.

8 Black Butler Fanbase Black Butler is a Japanese anime television series produced by A-1 Pictures. It premiered in October, 2008. It was based on the manga of the same name written and illustrated by Yana Toboso. The series follows Ciel Phantomhive, the twelve-year-old Earl of Phantomhive serving as the Queen's Watchdog. He is tasked with solving crimes in the underworld of Victorian-era London. Ciel has formed a contract with demon Sebastian Michaelis, who disguises himself as his butler, to seek revenge on those who tortured him and murdered his parents. In exchange for his services, Sebastian will be allowed to consume Ciel's soul.

Some of toxic yaoi fangirls literally support pedophilia. Shipping a young boy who lost his family with a demonic butler who is centuries old. It's crazy that in one of the scenes, the boy witnesses a panic attack and the toxic fandom makes joke of the situation. Disgusting!

Toxic fujoshis who mainly ship a 3000 year old man with a 13 year old boy and its really disgusting.

9 My Hero Academia

I never thought their would be anything worse then Communists. Boy was I wrong. Now don't get me wrong, I might watch this Anime later in the future, because currently I watch about three anime. All of them about Kaiju. But holy smokes is this fandom bad. I've read that they tried to make the Protagonist gay! They also sent death threats and holy crap do they ship. They put together 16 year old Teens and like, 30 year olds! Why. This show is about Superheroes and it's supposed to be a Comedy. But what do these people do? They try to make as bad as possible. When will these A Holes learn that you don't need to ship every bloody Person! They need to get under control and see what other Fandoms like the Godzilla, Kong and Pacific rim fandoms. Those fandoms keep the shippers under control and actually get and collaborate with other fandoms to make incredible websites like Gojipedia. These people don't.

Here's how I discovered this fandom. One day, I was just browsing Amazon, Trying to find something to watch. And then I see that MHA crap that everyone at my Middle School Talks about. So I say to myself " Well, maybe I should consult a Expert first" so I go online and just start browsing for the Fandom page. I get on and I am horrified at what I find. Just Ships. And toxic people. Now listen here, I'm part of the Giant Monster Fandom, and we don't have much ships. But I am taken back by all of these ships. And also, can someone help me with what this show is exactly about?

The worst part of the tumblr migration to twitter within a shounen fanbase. Don't discuss this series with those people you will get cancelled for thinking their pairing isn't canon.

As a fan of My Hero Academia myself, I've come to get to know the fandom and how they are, and they're just utterly terrible. If you liked a ship and comment about it, and there was someone who disagreed with the ship, they would criticise you and make you look like a terrible person for admiring something they don't. It's honestly disgusting and cruel-hearted to do something like that. I know this because I've been insulted before because of an opinion I had.

I honestly have no problem with gay ships, but most of them go way too far. Like, how is Midoriya gay? He's a main protagonist of a SHONEN anime! Not a yaoi, a Shonen. He's never shown any real interest in men either. Since when did we see a scene in the animes where we went all lovey-dovey for a male character? Exactly, never.

Also, they overhype the series WAY too much. It's not that amazing as people say it is, sure it's a great anime, but it wasn't that exciting. Personally, I enjoyed season 1 more than season ...more

10 Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Fanbase

Don't even get me started on the manga elitists and those who intentionally spoil it for those who just prefer to watch the anime. Don't get me wrong, it's one of my all-time favorite animes, but like anything else, the fans are highly questionable. The memes are not funny, and some of them are very offensive. I get they're passionate, but they need to stop shoving it down other people's throats. The series is very complex and long, so pressuring them to read the manga is not cool.

I have loved Jojo for years, but the people that ruin the experience of cosplaying it are the Fujoshis. I just want to pose and be bros, but I swear it's always about over sexualizing at group photoshoots. It gets uncomfortable really fast, and the shipping with Giorno and Dio is out of control. Like "WRRRY I want to plow my son" kind of fans. The, will argue about the legal in Italy, kind of fans. Basically, the Vento fans are the worst.
It sadly brings in the most toxic people too, and it made me slowly get out of Jojo.-.

I have 2 friends that are JoJo fans. I can't say the word breakdown, can't mention Another one bites the dust by Queen, can't really say anything without being asked if it's a JoJo reference, simply put they're the most annoying fanbase I've ever come across and that's saying something cause I'm a big DB fan

I was annoyed on how JJBA fan literally, keep referencing JJBA in a video such as Killer Queen and Another One Bites the Dust by Queen, Enter Sandman by Metallica, Here I Go Again by Whitesnake etc. It ruins the fun for me to listen my favourite music. Even the original fans (Not JJBA fans) get annoyed with them(JJBA fans)

The Contenders
11 Boku no Pico Fanbase

Are there people existing in this world that Actually like Boku No Pico?

This shouldn't even have a fanbase no explanation needed.

There's a fanbase for this?

I don't see them

12 Hetalia Fanbase

stereotypes the show with a fanbase that wants to be impregnated by the male characters. Besides that, the fans will actually not leave you alone if you breathe at it the wrong way

Just a bunch of stereotypes of people of different races. I guess the author is just a racist dude.

The only actual racist thing Tumblr won't call racist.

13 Hunter X Hunter Hunter × Hunter is a manga franchise created by Yoshihiro Togashi. In 1999, Hunter × Hunter was adapted into a 62-episode anime television series produced by Nippon Animation and directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi. The show premiered on Japan's Fuji TV and ran until 2001. Three separate original video animations (OVAs) totaling 30 episodes were subsequently produced by Nippon Animation and released in Japan from 2002 to 2004. A second anime television series by Madhouse aired on Nippon Television from October 2011 to September 2014, with two animated theatrical films released in 2013. There are also numerous audio albums, video games, musicals, and other media based on Hunter × Hunter.

The most pretentious shounen fanbase out there. Great series but some of these fans will defend everything in it including the racist stereotypes

Hunter x Hunter's fanbase is not that bad in my experience, though sometimes I do stumble upon some bad things like people being dirty with *children*. Seriously, pedophilia is not okay and you should go get help if you are one. The other bad things are the Killua and Hisoka fangirls. Don't get me wrong, HIsoka is one of my favorite charcters (Other than Illumi) but there people who will attck others online because they think that the charcter is the best anime charcter ever written and no one elses opinion is valid. Anyway, it is a great anime and don't let the toxic corners of the fanbase keep you from watching it!

Come on guys. That's all the reasons you could think off. Don't get me wrong, I love hunter x hunter but the fans are just a bunch of elitists. They think of themselves as intellectuals and refuse to take any form of criticism towards the show. Anyone who criticizes hxh to them is an idiot, the show is great but there are still flaws that can be criticized

This is one of my favorite anime along with Dragon Ball and One Piece.
And in my experience they're no different than One Piece fans

You say that Hunter x hunter isn't good?
They will put a judgment chain in your hearts and beat your asses up with Godspeed

14 Death Note Fanbase 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".

These guys think that they are intellectuals and geniuses. They are always fighting, who is smarter L or Light? They will not take constructive criticism and make fun of people who haven't watch it. Anime is great but fanbase is toxic

While the anime is beautiful, the fanbase is absolutely atrocious. All around, you'll get "Light VS. L" battles, or "Is Light really a bad guy?" or "Is L a criminal?", etc. If you disagree with anyone, you'll instantly get attacked, called unspeakable names, and told to "kill yourself" or the like. That's not even bringing up the Yaoi fangirls who insist on shipping Light X L, and if you happen to even dislike the ship, you'll be attacked for it. Not to mention the self-righteous people who insist their theories/headcanons are 100% correct, and refuse to take any opinions other than their own. This is easily one of the worst fanbases I've ever been in, though I won't allow that to ruin the anime for me.

15 Darling in the Franxx Fanbase

It infected roblox

16 Pokemon Fanbase

It's a good show, I really hate all the hate this show is getting. Pokemon is pretty much my childhood

I mean they're just a bunch of 8 year olds, what do you expect...

Worst anime in history.

They have trash parents

17 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.

Up until the rebuild movies this fanbase treated this franchise like the end all be all for anime, that nothing will ever get close to its genius. While I think the series is great, the fans act like the manchildren Otaku that its creator himself probably has hinted at not liking himself. Giving him a stable living tho

They love to don't understand an anime and search clues to create theories.

Overanlayze the show way to much. even the created admitted it not being that deep

18 Love Live! Fanbase

If you're not a lesbian or REALLY into being politically correct (not even saying you can't be, you just have to REALLY want to be that) this fanbase is not for you. Great music, okay first two gens of anime, not so great fans.

19 Danganronpa Danganronpa: The Animation is a 2013 anime television series based on Spike Chunsoft's murder mystery video game, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.

Yes. This fandom is one I'm both ashamed of and proud to be in. I'm not proud of how people hate people who like teruteru or hifumi (I'm not big fans of either) I remember getting yelled at for liking and au where Mukuro and Junko were good siblings. They said I shipped 1nc3st, no I was just liking a sibling dynamic, and the fact that Junko, in an au, would be nice to Mukuro and support her. And oh god, the komahina stans. I used to not ship Komahina and wasn't afraid to say it, I got attacked by people a lot

There's a lot more I could say but I don't want to waste your time

I remember someone online called me a rapist just because I didn't hate this character called Teruteru... I don't even go outside tf

This fandom is so toxic about the characters!

20 Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu Fanbase

Rem is the Teen Titans fandom?

21 Diabolik Lovers Fanbase

My friend makes these utterly terrible and cringeworthy x reader fanfictions about Diabolik Lovers on Wattpad. Come on, this fandom is full of fangirls!

22 Bleach Fanbase Bleach is a Japanese anime series based on Tite Kubo's manga of the same name. Bleach adapts the first 54 volumes of Tite Kubo's manga series of the same name. In addition, 4 anime-original arcs were broadcast in-between and during the adaptations of original arcs of the manga. more.

Their not all that bad, on the defensive side yes, but, who can blame them after being ridiculed for liking a great and awesome series.

23 Puella Magi Madoka Magica Fanbase

After reading about how many fandom rivalries this has, I'm inclined to agree. Not to mention that I sometimes can't go anywhere online without this anime appearing in any form. On one hand, at least Sailor Moon actually treats their villains like villains and doesn't give them stupid reasons. On the other, it's still better than Evangelion because most of the Eva characters barring Rei are horrible people while the MM girls are sympathetic to various degrees.

24 Code Geass Fanbase
25 Nisekoi Fanbase

While it was still ongoing nisekoi's fans would have full blown online wars over who was best girl. This happens for a lot of harem anime/manga but it was a lot more present with Nisekoi.
