Top 10 Worst Anime Episodes

While many anime episodes are good and sometimes decent then there are those really bad episodes either their bad because their filler or bad for the sake of being bad or just feel entirely pointless, so its time to look back at some of the worst anime episodes and as always if you like the episodes that's fine and also I haven't watched every episodes of every anime so of course I'm going to mess out a lot of really bad episodes if you don't see a particular anime episode that should be on this list feel free to add them.

The Top Ten

1 Electric Soldier Porygon - Pokemon Electric Soldier Porygon - Pokemon

Shouldn't be first, it's a great episode, but it had seizure causing flashing

Yeah this episode is bad solely for the fact that it sent countless people to the hospital after suffering seizures from the scene when Pikachu shoots lighting at upcoming missiles causing the screen to flash resulting in several people being hospitalized. - egnomac

It sent thousands of Japanese children to the hospital, enough said. - PerfectImpulseX

This isn't actually a bad episode. It's actually pretty interesting.

I watched it, I got no seizure (I'm not epileptic though) - Solacress

2 Goku's Next Journey - Dragonball Z Goku's Next Journey - Dragonball Z

This was a horrible way to end such a great series this and the previous episode has Goku and several characters partaking in the world's martial arts tournament which is the only reason for Goku to show up, Goku is pitted against a strange kid Uub who is the reincarnation of Buu Goku gets him to fight him after insulting his mother in a very childish manner as the face off in a epic battle, then the battle just stops as Goku tells his friends and family that he's leaving with Uub to train with him on his island as Goku abandons everyone and flies off and the series ends, normally for an anime episode it wouldn't be so bad except this is the series finale seriously what a terrible way to end an otherwise awesome anime series. - egnomac

I agree I watched the entire but saga when It used to be on Hulu & the ending was bad - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

The ending of GT was better. - PerfectImpulseX

3 A Double Dilemma - Pokémon Advanced Challenge

I flat out hated this episode there are so many problems with this the episode begins with Ash, May, Brock and Max arriving in Petalburg City where May and Max because their dad is Norman the Gym Leader are bombarded by thousands of fans while Ash and Brock are shoved to the side then for no reason some punk kids start talking trash to Ash and engage him in a battle, while this mess is going on Jessie & James disguised as Norman and Caroline dupe everyone into beliving the real thing, back to Ash Ash beats the two trainers then ends up in a never ending series of battle against other trainers, then the whole town decides to have May battle against Ash but since nearly all of Ash's Pokémon are worn out the only pokemon he can use is Tailow Ash and May battle with Ash dominating the match and the crowd just relentlessly boo him like the WWE fans boo Roman Reigns May is eventually declared the winner by biased decision May never actually beats Ash, the problem I have with this is Ash ...more - egnomac

4 No Need for Hunger - Tenchi Universe

In this episode the ship they're travailing on the Yagami breaks down in the middle of nowhere and while Washu is fixing it the group has run out of food and send Ryoko on an errand to bring back food which turns out to be a mistake as while everyone is left starving Ryoko spends all the money she got or rather took from Ayeka on herself when she finally returns, to everyone's disappointment she comes back with no food except for an apple she gives to Ayeka but instead brings money she robbed at bank from the Jurai bank vault and now the police are after them not only did she not bring food but now she brought the cops with her leaving everyone still starving. - egnomac

5 I'll Protect You - Rail Wars
6 Pokabu: Please Mr. Postman - Naruto
7 Goku's Ordeal - Dragon Ball Z

This episode was just pure filler the episode begins with Chi Chi demanding a car and forces both Goku and Piccolo to stop their training to enroll in driver Ed, now here are problems with this #1 it has been shown in previous episodes that Chi Chi knows how to drive and #2 Goku not only can fly but instantly transport from one place to another so she could have reality have Goku transport to the store and back in mere seconds, from here on crazy mishaps happen and neither Goku or Piccolo get their driver licencee and this whole episode was a waste of time. - egnomac

8 The Great Kidnapping Spectacle - Galaxy Angel

An episode in which pretty much nothing happens, It starts with Ranpha and Mint faking their own kidnappings in order to get the ransom from the Angel Brigade in order to get their ship back of which ultimately leads to a number of fake ransoms with each of them raising the ransoms the episode really makes no real sense but then again the whole series itself makes no real sense. - egnomac

9 Sudden Cooking! Follow The Phantom Dragon! - The Slayers NEXT

Lena and the crew arrive at a restaurant in where they serve dragon cuisine so they order it the only problem is they don't have any actual dragon to make the cuisine so they improvise but of course everyone except Gourrey realize that the meat they served them isn't dragon and are pissed off that they tries to swindle them when they complain to the kitchen one of the chef's Ashford realizes what's going on recruits the crew on help him capture and slay a dragon to make the dragon cuisine after much so much trouble they finally slay the dragon and are prepared to enjoy the cuisine the only problem it takes month in order to actually prepare the dragon meat as everyone is left disappointing no more than Lina as she's dragged out by the others ticked off of not having her dragon cuisine and making this whole episode entirely pointless. - egnomac
