Top 10 Worst Anime of All Time

The Top Ten
1 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.

Whoever made this dragged themselves up from hell with the intent of ruining everyone's lives. They forced them all to watch this.

Boku no Pico is a disgrace to anime as a whole. I can't find a reason why someone would legitimately like this aside from being a pedophile. Pretty much everything that happens is both wrong and illegal. While the animation is certainly beautiful and well detailed, it should have been put to much better use than this horrifying monstrosity. The first episode is an adult who basically does it with a young boy. Great start. The second one is two young boys doing the same. Wonderful. The third one (thank god there aren't more after this) is THREE underage boys doing it. UNDERAGE. Yet the studio tries to pass this off as a vision of "art". "Art"? No. This is not art. Nothing this sickening should be viewed as art. Why were any of the animators ok with animating and releasing this? This should be locked away and forgotten!

2 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

How can this god-awful work of animation be compared to the likes of Naruto, Attack on Titan, Sailor Moon, and Clannad: After Story?

Look, I don't care whether or not you're a fan of any of these shows, but associating them with School Days? I'm not bashing the entirety of it. Don't get me wrong. The culmination of a terrible main character, as well as most characters in general, random sexual scenes, and an overt ending, just kind of put the icing on the cake for me.

Going off the first thing I said, the amount of effort put into the characters and storyline of a few of the animes on this list threw me off a bit. No, I'm not saying these are the best shows, but you have to acknowledge the work put into them and their popularity.

3 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.

One of my friends recommended this anime to me, so I decided to give it a shot (they were joking, but back then I didn't know). I stopped after I was 10 minutes through the first episode. This "anime" has a terrible plot and blows up breasts so that they practically fill the whole screen. It's impossible to look anywhere that's not taken by breasts or a panty shot or a girl/boy doing inappropriate suggestive things.

I... I don't know where to start with this, but oh my. There's a video on YouTube called 42 things wrong with Eiken, and my it doesn't even begin to describe this "anime". I wasn't sure what I was watching, but after about 5 minutes I couldn't deal anymore.

4 Diabolik Lovers Diabolik Lovers is a Japanese visual novel franchise by Rejet. The first game was released on October 11, 2012 for the PlayStation Portable. Three more games have been released since them with the first two games having been ported for the PlayStation Vita with the subtitle "Limited V Edition"... read more

This anime is basically a crappy Ouran High School Host Club parody with hot, perverted vampires and no character development or plot. The heroine is so weak and stupid it hurts. She doesn't even try to fight back! She's like, "Excuse me, Mr. Vampire, I'm sorry for not being a good enough blood bag, apparently." There are fewer than 10 characters in the whole show, and none of them have any personality whatsoever. It's just one weak character after the next.

And the plot? One girl one day ends up in a mysterious castle inhabited by hot vampires who have no personality or anything to do other than sexually assault the heroine. These characters need to get a life and a personality. I wouldn't recommend the show even if I were held hostage. Unless you like blank personalities that are basically stereotypes and a lot of random blood-sucking, then don't watch the show.

5 DearS

This show is nothing but an insult to humanity. It portrays women as sex slaves, men as manipulative sex hungry monsters, and makes the Japanese look like a bunch of perverts (which the vast majority aren't). Basically, it dehumanizes its characters in the worst way possible: making them characters that would be in hentai, characters that aren't meant to be taken seriously, and putting them into something that is meant to be taken seriously.

Take 3 awesome animes, Kanon, Chobits, and Girls Bravo, and let's mash them together like Frankenstein and create what could possibly be the worst form of "entertainment" ever, held together by the small hairs of a terrible plot, horrible characters, and annoying and pathetic comedy. DearS is a complete disaster and should be condemned.

6 Sword Art Online 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"... read more

The first three episodes of this show were interesting, but later on, it was just romance. Why did the SAO game end at episode 12 so quickly? It just moved on to fairies, and that arc was terrible. I'm pretty sure his cousin fell in love with him, which made for an awkward scene, but in this show, he's a ladies' man. Asuna was supposed to die. It would have been better if this stupid show could end.

The show had a good idea about being trapped in a video game, but it focused more on the main character and Asuna getting married and having a child, which is part of the video game and could never actually happen. This show is horrible, and it's being renewed for another season.

7 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

From replacing all of the good voice actors - the ones who didn't make you want to bash your ears in - for the characters three-quarters of the way through the Advanced Generation Saga, to the constant replacing of former characters, to the never-ending "journey" of Ash's continuous losses at the Pokemon Leagues from Kanto to Unova, this anime has been milked to hell and it's obvious it needs to go. It started off with a good idea, a nice concept, and a lot of heart. Nowadays, it's absolutely terrible, not because it's new, but because it's the same thing. The TRio has supposedly become more competent, but in reality, they are now just serious yet still lose every single time.

I'm actually very sad to see what happened to a once-good anime series that actually taught you things.

8 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.

This should be in the top 10, not Clannad After Story. It's not funny, it's not entertaining, and it's most definitely not "cute." It's just stupid, contrived humor thrown in your face, along with pathetic moe that surrounds it. I'm not against moe if it's done right, like with Clannad, Kanon, and Air, since they are not entirely centered around moe and have engaging characters and a good story. The main focus of this show is just being stupid. How anyone can find this crud funny is way beyond me. If you want a funny anime, watch Ouran, Sket Dance, or One Piece. They have loads of funny moments.

9 Abunai Sisters: Koko & Mika

So ugly ''anime''. It's about 2 ugly celebrities that I don't know what they do but the anime is such a big disgrace to me. DON'T watch this and it's not even "anime"!

This feels like Panty And Stocking if you got it from the dollar store

10 Mars of Destruction

This anime just sucks. There are no emotions in it, nor any intense scenes. The characters are just a bunch of bland garbage, and the storyline is bad, if there even is one. I think this should be number one. The other anime here may be bad, but they could at least have some redeemable qualities, while this doesn't. I got incredibly bored and lost interest while watching this, but I had to force myself to watch it all.

The only good thing about this is the scene where the girl gets her head blown up and the doctor says that she won't make it. That reaches the so bad it's good level, but the rest is so bad that it surpasses that quality, reaching a point where it can't be good anymore.

The Contenders
11 Clannad After Story Clannad is based off a visual novel. It follows the story of a high school senior named Tomoya Okazaki, a delinquent who floats through life caring about very little. He hates the town he lives in and his alcoholic father... read more

Yeah, guys, I get it. It's about life and overcoming adversity, about how life will constantly dump all over you while you strive to stand back up. Cool. We all know. Maybe this is on here ironically, but stop waving those IQs around and go back to watching Rick and Morty.

Clannad has a long stretch of mundane storytelling that actually leads into all of these brutal moments of emotion in the last quarter, which feel genuinely earned. I'm talking about those leitmotifs. I'm talking tears. But then deus ex machina jumps out of nowhere and says, "Oh yeah, magic exists." Like, okay, if the goal was to test the best way to ruin the mood over two seasons, that was probably it. There are probably a hundred different ways this ending could have been rewritten to keep the themes intact AND end on a feel-good note, but unfortunately, time travel doesn't exist, so...

12 Sleeping with Hinako

Hinako is a really cute and beautiful girl. But she should have been in a WAY better anime. I think it's about you seeing Hinako sleeping and her privates.

13 Pico x Chico

I've never heard of this, or watched it, but by god, if the name is what it suggests- a Boku no Pico sequel- I'm surprised the show managed to get enough fan service to make a sequel. I'm beyond disgusted at the thought that people enjoyed Boku no Pico enough to let it get a sequel. Not only is it straight up child pornography, but it is pedophillia and disgusting.

I've never seen this but if it was actually popular enough to get a sequel then I am going to die. Boku No Pico was HORRIBLE. If the creators try to improve anything then they will mess it up even more. They already messed up my small liking for yaoi.

14 High School DxD High School DxD is a Japanese light novel series written by Ichiei Ishibumi and illustrated by Miyama-Zero. The series revolves around Issei Hyoudou, a perverted high school student who is reincarnated into a Devil by Rias Gremory after being killed on his first date. He later joins the Occult Research... read more

I don't like fanservice-y anime, but this one had a nice plot and such. The only reason I hated it was because of Issei and Asia. Asia was straight-up annoying, and Issei was just... In the midst of a battle, he randomly mentions breasts. In any scene, he randomly mentions breasts. It's so annoying I can't even.

It would be epic if it wasn't perverted. I like it, but I hate it being perverted so I'm both for it being the worst and also against it being the worst.

I can see why people don't like this. But for a 'perverted' anime it's actually not that bad. It actually has a good story and it is entertaining in a way (Just started the 4th season, looks pretty good so far).

15 Powerpuff Girls Z Powerpuff Girls Z is a Japanese magical girl anime series directed by Megumu Ishiguro, based on the American animated television series The Powerpuff Girls. The anime is co-produced by Cartoon Network Japan and Aniplex and was animated and produced by Toei Animation, featuring character design by Miho... read more

What? Who allowed this to be made? This is not what the Powerpuff Girls is! The joke in the original is that they're three cute little girls fighting tough villains, and it had a lot of violence. Also, they were literally 5 years old in the original. But this looks like some crappy fan art. I think Buttercup is the only character with a somewhat good design here. And the eyes, my God, the eyes.

Sure it's bad, but just wait until that new Powerpuff Girls reboot comes out in 2016.

I mean at least PPGZ sort of showed how Powerpuff Girls would be like as an anime. Or kind of, since they could have still done a much better job at it.

But an American reboot of an American cartoon makes absolutely no sense.

16 Sailor Moon Sailor Moon is a Japanese shōjo manga series by Naoko Takeuchi. It was originally serialized in Nakayoshi from 1991 to 1997; the 52 individual chapters were published in 18 tankōbon volumes... read more

Let's start with first impressions: the art is horrible. The skirts are tiny, and the legs defy human anatomy. But past that, the story line is repetitive and boring. I feel like they added most of the story for useless drama. Tuxedo mask in embarrassingly unneeded. I literally felt second hand embarrassment when he showed up. His character is just so bland, all he has going for him is his looks... Usagi is okay, her character is the typical clumsy bad-at-school-but-still-cute type, but that in itself isn't bad. It's the fact that she's extremely annoying! Her voice is super high pitched and gives me a headache. I sat through this anime/manga for a while, just to force myself to see the appeal. There was none. The only thing this anime has going for it, is nostalgia value.

17 Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo 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

Yes, it is weird and dumb, and somewhat annoying, but I happen to like it. I guess it's meant to be funny, and it's really unique and original. I like the characters and their personalities, and I like what they're trying to accomplish. When you think about it (if you have hair), would you want to be forced to be bald? It makes sense that they're trying to stop the villain. You may wonder what's going on when you first watch it, but I think that it's the funny and good kind of what.

It's like this show thinks that just because they're being loud and "lol so random," they are automatically hilarious.

But it isn't, and shouting out the jokes or highlighting the absurdity of the show doesn't make it funny either. We get it. Crazy stuff is happening. You don't need that pink-haired girl to shout out that crazy stuff is happening because we can already see it, and it adds nothing funny to it.

18 Rosario + Vampire Premiering in 2008, this anime series is adapted from a manga by Akihisa Ikeda. It follows a human boy who accidentally enrolls in a school for monsters and becomes involved with a vampire girl. The series is known for its romantic comedy tone and fantasy elements.

I've only seen the first episode, but it is way too original! The boy didn't even know Moka for that long before he revealed himself and went through all the friendship drama. It's dumb, and Moka isn't scary. The characters are just wimps. Then she makes that awfully obnoxious noise when she sucks the boy's blood. If I were him, I'd be gone before it even happened. Besides, who attends a school that they just happen to find an ad for without doing any research or anything?

I've watched all the episodes and I regret it ALL. It's too weird and the makers even go so far they show nipples now some of those perverts might be looking for the anime just because I said that. And in the beginning of the episode the makers couldn't stop showing the panties maybe I'm just being a little childish or not but lets get to the real reasons its bad. There aren't any good situations a lot are stupid like one was the girls/monsters told there parents they were dating but they lied and when there parents came over the boy (sorry I forgot his name) had to run away and avoid them because once they found the truth they would force him to love him.

19 Dragon Ball GT Dragon Ball GT is a Japanese anime series based on Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball manga. Produced by Toei Animation, the series premiered in Japan on Fuji TV on February 7, 1996, spanning 64 episodes until its end on November 19, 1997.

Top 10 reasons why GT sucks!

1. Goku turns back into a kid!
2. Pan! That's it!
3. The designs are god-awful!
4. The enemies are absolutely stupid! Baby? Super Android 17? Dragons from wishes with the dragon balls?
5. Parapara Brothers!
6. Vegeta's haircut! His mustache is awesome!
7. Goku left his family again to train some kid with Kid Buu's powers!
8. Some of the voices don't even fit the characters! 18's voice is Launch's?!
9. Toriyama not being on the show!
10. Goku leaving with the dragon balls on the back of Shenron! Leaving his family once again! He's a great person and fighter, but not a great father!

20 Naruto: Shippuden Naruto: Shippuden is the ongoing sequel to the original Naruto anime and covers the Naruto manga from volume twenty-eight on. The TV adaptation of Naruto: Shippuden debuted in Japan on February 15, 2007 on TV Tokyo. It is developed by Studio Pierrot and directed by Hayato Date.

Just a rip-off of Dragon Ball and Hunter x Hunter. Everything about it is horrible: the female characters, the plot, the storyline. It all sucks. The characters are annoying. There's not a single likable one. The fandom is disgusting. All the pairings are ridiculous, just stupid, horny fangirls that end up with their crush in the end. Sakura is useless and a bad example of a heroine. Hinata is praised as if she's a goddess, yet she never contributed anything important to the story, except being the cause of Neji's death. Other side characters like Ino don't even get that much attention. Naruto isn't even that strong. They try to make him so much like Goku, it's pathetic.

21 Naruto 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... read more

Naruto is good, BUT I hate that it is the first influence on anime for kids. I mean, seriously? Why Naruto? Is it because it revolves around ninjas? Kids probably think, "Oh, ninjas! Ninjas come from Japan! This is so from Japan!" Why? I would watch it, but I don't want to be hanging around kids under 10 going, "something something jutsu!" It's so stupid! They should show something else that is unrecognized but is a very epic anime with a great plot. I watch anime that need to be more famous. It's too bad they weren't able to show them to more people just because Naruto is still ongoing. Seriously, there are anime out there that need more fame. Naruto has held the spotlight for too long. It's been a decade already!

22 Tokyo Mew Mew Originating in Japan, Tokyo Mew Mew is an anime series that aired in 2002, adapted from a manga by Reiko Yoshida and Mia Ikumi. The story revolves around five girls who gain superpowers to become the "Mew Mews," defenders of Earth against alien invaders. Recognized for its magical girl elements, the... read more

Don't blame the dub guys. Half of the show was actually good. The rest of it is utter crap. Even the original is cheesy. It's cheesy as hell. The characters are annoying, especially the main protagonist. The music isn't good. The art is OK, but that doesn't add to my rating of the show. I enjoyed this when I was 5, but not anymore. This show is far too cheesy. It isn't even enjoyable after episode 26. I rate it 4.9/10 - very forgettable. I'd recommend you watch Princess Tutu, Happy Seven, and Sailor Moon instead.

I kind of hate this show. I watched an episode and it was boring. I was bored to death. And it is too girly.

23 My Hero Academia

Worst anime ever? No. But man is it overhyped to no end. I hate when people call it 'the next big thing' alongside Dragon Ball and Naruto when all the show does is take cliches from other shows. Most of the characters and the story doesn't seem interesting. Again, I don't hate it, I caught up with the anime and saw the movie in cinemas, but it's far from revolutionary. One last thing, there's an anime call Little Witch Academia, it shares a lot of similar story beats as well as the name, it's a much better version of My Hero Academia that I couldn't recommend enough.

24 Kodomo no Jikan

One word... Pedophilia or at least sort of. A fourth grader seduces her teacher. Sexually!

I couldn't even last five minutes of the first episode. That's how despicable it is.

Why people thinks this is a good anime? It's about Pedophilies (at least for me) for god sake!

25 Soul Eater Not!

I honestly dislike the newly added characters since the show is supposed to be dark and we can't have that with some random cutesy anime girl roaming around. This honestly doesn't even feel like a sequel considering the fact that these new characters get more screen time than our original ones. If you haven't watched Soul Eater yet, please don't bother wasting your time watching this show. I only watched two episodes and I. Was. DONE.

Soul Eater: An anime about teenage high school students who work together as meister and weapon to defeat evil. Not to mention I really liked the first opening song!
Soul Eater Not!: Complete moe garbage that only revolves around three annoying girls doing boring girly stuff (I'm not trying to be sexist. I apologize). Oh, and the opening and ending songs were cringe-worthy too.
