Top 10 Worst Anime Genres

The Top Ten
1 Yaoi

FYI, it has nothing to do with it being gay. It's just that the Yaoi I've seen is just... appalling. Abusive relationships, cringe writing, and just all round bad storytelling. It's kind of sad how terrible gay relationships are portrayed in this genre.

I hate yaoi. Especially when favorite anime guys are wrongly depicted as yaoi in fan art and fiction. Absolutely sickening.

Everyone is like "But Yaoi is so amazing" and blah blah blah. I hate Yuri and Yaoi. I dislike the genre. Just my opinion.

2 Hentai

Hentai makes me sick. It's disgusting and gives anime a bad name. Imagine thinking it's sexy.

3 Mecha

Mecha anime? Seriously? Have you ever seen Gurren Lagann, Evangelion, Gundam, etc.? Just saying, mechanical anime are awesome.

4 Shounen-ai

This isn't bad, actually. It's like a toned-down version of yaoi.

5 Harem

That actually should be on the first page. We have dozens by seasons, whether it's girl or boy oriented, it's rarely good, because they rely on the idea that one person (usually bland and stupid) could be loved by several persons for ABSOLUTELY NO REASON.

6 Ecchi

I don't know why this genre exists. It's basically a censored hentai. This doesn't make sense and destroys the anime. It's awful and idiotic. How the heck can someone enjoy an anime that shows butts every time they are on screen?

7 Shotacon/Lolicon

Woah, I missed this one, but yeah this should be number one. It's disgusting. I've never seen this genre and pray I never will come across it. I wish people would use their talents for good.

An anime genre that sexualizes minors? How is this not number one?

Because shotacon is what Boku no Pico is.

8 Yuri

It seems like the yaoi and yuri fanbases hate each other. Or maybe they like both. Either way, I hate both genres. I watched Sakura Trick, this yuri anime, and I found it boring and so stupid to watch. It didn't really have a storyline, so they put in kissing to make up for it. Like really? Also, the characters are annoying. It's so cutesy for my tastes.

What makes this worse is that the fangirls will tell you to get lost if you don't like what they like. Plus, they're like "so Kawai!" or "we don't want your kind here," as if we can't watch whatever we want.

9 Isekai

So, you are a bearded, fat, left-winger who lives in a basement playing video games and watching hentai all day...no such thing as working, nor obligations. Your mom needs you to take care of your brother or visit granny at the hospital? Nope. You just need your family because they pay the bills...they are a nuisance. Your entitled self desires a huge castle, great adventures, a ripe body, a powerful sword, and lots of women. This is the genre for you! Lots of rewards without having done anything of value in your whole life! Isekai, the perfect dream!

10 Shoujo-ai

As a queer woman, I love shoujo-ai, especially ones like "Their Story." The only problem is a good one is hard to come by, and I have to wait like a month or more just to read the few ongoing ones worth reading. I hate hentai though, and pretty much anything that's porn, including most yuri (I don't have any experience with yaoi so I can't judge that).

The Contenders
11 Game

The problem with game animes is that the creators don't even know how games work. Or it'll look like a game from the early '90s.

12 Military
13 Magic
14 Sports
15 School
16 Slice of Life

Comedy animes and heartwarming animes are mostly slice of life. Fact.

17 Reverse Harem
18 Vampire

I'm pretty sure the vampire genre is only hated solely because of Diabolik Lovers' infamous reputation. Other than that, good anime in the vampire genre include Hellsing Ultimate and the more recent Seraph of the End.

Overrated. Vampires everywhere, they're like the plague.

19 Horror
20 Netorare
21 Shounen

Worst of all, in my opinion. Almost all shounen are the same. They all follow the same tropes and they never do anything really out of the ordinary (there are some rare exemptions to this). I would rather watch 2 gaylords kiss than watch another Dragonball, Naruto, Bleach nonsense.

22 Magical Girl

The best magical girl anime according to this website is Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and I hate that show. If that's considered the best, then I don't wanna find out what other shows of this genre are like.

23 Romance
24 Dementia
25 Comedy
