Worst Anime Genres


The Top Ten

1 Hentai

Funny but mostly stupid

A lot of you guys are arguing that this genre is perverted.

Rape, rape, too much rape... if only some stories could be about having pleasures together, than about how much the women like drinking semen and men are all perverted and disgusting... - TopiTaupe

2 Yaoi

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

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

I'm bisexual and I hate Yaoi and Yuri not because it is GuyxGuy and GirlxGirl but because it is porn I do enjoy a little Shonen and Shoujo it's like Yaoi and Yuri only not explicit I still call them Yaoi and Yuri though (Even though I hate them) since they are easier to pronounce - countnightdark13

I hate it because sometimes it contains rape, pedophilia, and porn...

3 Shounen-ai

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

I don't get why shounen ai is there too though. Since the author isn't focused on making the characters having sex the story is usually more decents. - TopiTaupe

4 Mecha

But Mecha animes are cool. They are intelligent and strategic. They make you think. It shouldn't be here!

There are a lot of good ones like ever, TTGL, Geass, Ghost in Shell, and FLCL though

Apparently, SOME people need to watch Gurren Lagann, Evangelion, Code Geass, or even Aldnoah.Zero. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 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). - evena

6 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. - HappyFlower

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

7 Shotacon/Lolicon

An Anime Genre that sexualizes Minors? How is this not number 1?

Woah I missed this one but yeah this should be number 1 it's disgusting. I never seen this genre and pray I never will come across it. Wish people would use their talents for good. - evena

This should be at top - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

That's because people see yaoi or shounen ai and automatically choose... it should be first and hentai second. At least yaoi, shounen ai and yuri aren't only dedicated to sexualise kids. - TopiTaupe

8 Military

Attack on Titan or Kabaneri much? - Absolite

9 Game

GAME?! But what about Sword Art Online and Accel World?! Or even No Game No Life and Log Horizon? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

That's such a vague term. Video game? Cards game? Hide and seek? - TopiTaupe

10 School

The Contenders

11 Ecchi

I hate Ecchi because it was ruined by one anime. HIGHSCHOOL DXD

Ecchi can be good, like Kill la Kill or High School Of The Dead. - Absolite

I hate fanservice and this can apply to yaoi, yuri, and hentai anime. The reason I vetoed for this is because I need this one to get higher on the worst anime genre list since the others I listed are in the top spots. They might as well add this one too.

So many shows are just vapid fanservice with no plot. I come to Kissanime to watch anime. I go to Kisshentai to bust a nut. Not the other way around. A lot of Ecchi anime make Hentai's plots look intelligent. Prime example: Keijo. - izayaorihara

12 Vampire

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

Not all vampire anime are bad. Rosario+Vampire is pretty decent but I will admit Vampire Knight does suck. - BoredJeff02

I'm pretty sure the vampire genre is only hate 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. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Why nobody talk about Shiki. - TopiTaupe

13 Harem

That actually should be on the first page. We have dozens by seasons, wether 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. - TopiTaupe

After watching high school dxd I've never been able to like anime as I used to bruh harem is just...NO please just end this stupid nightmare

14 Dementia
15 Slice of Life
16 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 ordenary (there are some rare exemptions to this). I would ratter watch 2 gaylords kiss then watch an other dragonball, naruto, bleach nonsense.

17 Historical
18 Supernatural
19 Sports
20 Space
21 Shoujo

So, so boring. Shonen > Shoujo

Clearly SOMEONE needs to watch Madoka Magica, Kimi ni Todoke, or Clannad After Story. - Absolite

Shonen and shojo aren't even genre. They're demographic. - TopiTaupe

22 Super Power
23 Seinen
24 Sci-Fi
25 Psychological

Mirai Nikki, Psycho Pass, Madoka, Paranoia Agent. Need I say more? Yeah, Psychological is probably the BEST anime genre. - Absolite

26 Police
27 Mystery
28 Music
29 Martial Arts
30 Magic
31 Romance

I LOVE romance! When I'm watching anime, I need a ship to become canon or I get triggered lol - Absolite

32 Josei
33 Horror
34 Fantasy
35 Drama
36 Demons
37 Comedy

So you don't like to laugh? - Absolite

38 Bishounen
39 Adventure
40 Action
41 Magical Girl
