Top 10 Worst Anime

21 Naruto 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.

The comments here are nothing but ridiculous exaggerations. I would not be surprised if some idiot here said, "NARTUO IS the WROST ANMIE ever N you sucks IF you LIEK IT! 1! 1! 11! " and received a few thumbs up. Naruto may not be the best anime, but it is not the worst anime either. School Days, Bakugan Battle Brawlers, or Sonic X should take Naruto's place as number one on this list. The explanations which people offer as to why they think Naruto is bad are extremely weak and biased. For example, people say that the entire Naruto series is bad either because it focused on Sasuke for a few episodes, has a lot of flashbacks, because it is the first influence on kids, or because their favorite characters were killed off. First, the focus on Sasuke was necessary because the change in Sasuke's goals was important to the plot. If there was no focus on Sasuke, then no one would know why he now targets the Leaf Village. The flashbacks may seem annoying, but they serve the same ...more

Also, one of the things I love about Naruto is the villains. You cannot just say that their motives are evil.

Madara, for example, wants to bring peace to a land of Ninja where everybody seems to be fighting for no reason (I belong to this village, so I'd die for it). The wars are just the outcome of contradiction in different people's motives when everybody wants the same thing. The only practical reason seems to be just fulfill their dreams and that can happen only in their dreams (virtual reality is created for everybody. Its like matrix but everybody seems to have their own). So, everybody is happy, no one is dying (life expectancy is really low in Naruto verse). It's really hard to argue against this except that "truth must prevail" statement.

Orochimaru is a researcher. Who doesn't want to learn everything? So, he is just doing what is necessary for his research.

Danzo (hate that guy), never understood his motives, but he is an egoistic person who, ...more

There's nothing wrong with the characters or the plot, really. All of that is quite interesting, honestly. However, what pushed me away from this anime was its sense of humor and seemingly repetitive fight scenes. It's a bit hard to explain, but some things about this anime irk me in the same way that Fairy Tail and One Piece do. I guess it's just because I'm a sucker for more serious anime, though, and the whole laughing off the big things and zooming in on the small details isn't really my type of thing.

Don't get me wrong, though. I'm not exactly saying that nobody should watch this anime or that it's just flat-out bad, nor am I saying that I dislike the flashbacks. On the contrary, I see how it would be interesting to many. Also, I quite enjoy when anime gives us a good look into the characters' pasts. It's not about the characters being killed off, either (I mean, I read Akame ga Kill. Of course that's not why I'm complaining). It's just.. in this genre, I prefer darker, ...more

The female characters were terrible written, at polls, Sakura was the most hated.

Wait! Why is this on here this is a great anime. It has a great plot even if they make episodes that don't follow it

Eh I'm watching it right now and it's not great but I still like it enough to keep watching it. Yes it does have its tone problems among other things but I still find it good. Not great, not revolutionary, not amazing, just good.

I'm only halfway through the first season but eh it got me hooked enough to want to read the manga (which I heard is supposed to be very very good) and see season 3 (I'm sorry but season 2 sounds stupid). But for an adaptation of something I guess it does a passable job, can get a little filler-y and does deviate from the manga a lot (from what I've heard) but adaptations are something hard to do and from what I've seen from the anime so far it does stray away from its source material in that there's a fair amount of original arcs and characters that are not originally in its source material but not so much that it has no similarities to its source material at all. In a way it's kinda like the Marvel Cinematic Universe where I am well aware that the ...more - Anonymousxcxc

Who put this on here? I would like to have a long, thorough talk with them about why it is included. I am very picky about my anime and this is number one on my list. The characters and development are nice, the plot is over the top, the art style is amazing for this genre especially, and you fall in love with just about everything about it. This is coming from a Christian, as well.

For those of you who were thrown off by season 2, no worries. It wasn't in the manga anyway, and simply started out as a drawing Yana included in one of the chapters.

The heck is this doing here? It's a great anime. Haven't finished it though so no spoilers please. - Kakabane

Absolutely the worst anime in the world. Avoid this at all costs, for you will regret your decision if you decide to watch this show.

HOW IN HELL IS THIS NOT IN THE TOP 10! Its about a guy having sex with his sister which is totally gross it almost goes up to hentai level. this should be 2nd because boku no pico should be number 1 - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Maybe I have not seen this but in the bible god says no to incest

An anime about 2 siblings in a sexual relationship. I almost threw up.

24 Soul Eater Not! Soul Eater Not!

Soul Eater was a masterpiece, this just basically ruined everything in the first one. If you have never watched Soul Eater and are planning on it, when you finish do NOT watch this after it. It's horrible.

A horrible prequel with prepubescent annoying girls to an anime with great dark themes and intense action.

What the hell even happened why the art change? Why didn't we just keep going with the storyline. It just kind of dropped off and felt rushed at the end. And this isn't making up for it

Trash.

25 Panty & Stocking

People are surprised by an anime called Panty & Stocking being filled with Hyper Sexualized women? Seriously, the name tells you what the anime is about. What were you expecting, a documentary on clothing manufacturing?

It appears that the bulk of complaints on this site are due to people expecting too much from the series. This one is about fan service, nothing more.

That ending. Enough said.

Worst anime ever, deserves to be number one.

I was dying when I saw the title and the anime did not dissapoint, its funny, but overly crude. - emeraldfennekin

26 Rosario + Vampire Rosario + Vampire

I've watched all the episodes and I regret it ALL its 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 becuase once they found the truth they would force him to love him. - lucario_ninetales

I've only seen the first episode, but it is WAY too original! And 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 boys 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 to without doing any research or anything?!

I don't think something can be "too original", but that's just my opinion. I've never seen the anime or heard it, but I think you mean it's too weird. But I'm not trying to correct you on something, I'm just saying that I'm a little fed up with everyone thinking an anime has to be absolutely perfect to be good, with perfect characters and a perfect storyline. EVERY anime is going to have its flaws. There is no perfect anime, though there may be according to you, but I've never seen this anime. I'll say too that attending a school without research is dumb - TheAlbinoWolf

Ugh, this anime is complete ass. Its attempts at serious drama are laughable, the stories are awfully predictable and the characters simply have no depth to them; which is terrible because the premise has a lot of potential. Just stick to the manga for your own sake.

This anime would've been cool if they took out the harem, perverseness, and fan service. Then they could've given those girls a personality, and a possible chance that the guy can choose the one he'll end up being with, or just be their supporting friend.

WORST ANIME EVER! This anime is nothing but a bunch of screaming and metal spinning tops that spin around until the other one falls. Seriously I've seen better battles in Yugioh than this piece of garbage!

Terrible. I can't believe I used to watch this crap. How can you beat evil with a top? How can you lose energy while playing? Too damn expensive. But how the hell would a TOP HAVE POWER THAT IS ONE STUPID ANIME.

Stupidest anime aside from B-Daman. I can't believe I liked this as a kid. How do tops even contain power I mean you can just grab them and throw them away.

Its just metal spinning tops, it's the same as making an Anime about Fidget Spinners.

28 Dragon Ball GT Dragon Ball GT

After intense battles against Freezer, Cell Kid Buu, the anime is sold and the battles now do not have any violence and the storyline is really terrible. it was destined to have over 400 episodes but it had to be reduced to 64 due to inminent cancelation. it was all to make it a "kids anime" while kids rather enjoy the previous DBZ rather than this piece of crap. AND GOKU IS STILL OVER 9000 BUT TURNED AS A CHILD ONCE MORE!

The series was terrible and is one of those things that should have never existed. In fact, it was the studio's fault for making Pan this despised since she wasn't like this in DBZ, thankfully.

Imagine taking a highly acclaimed series and then giving it a complete hundred episode season of filler and publish it under the name of the original work. Probably the first show that actually deserves to be here.

Every thing was bad the plot, music. And that annoying little brat. Pan

If you ever really watched the show you would have realized it's a mock cartoon. The show mocks popular anime.

Is this even an anime?

This isn't even an anime, this is a western cartoon parodying anime LOL. Get a clue people!

30 Naruto: Shippuden 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.

I accidentally voted but this series is great!

Sasuke marries sakura

"Sakura Ruins Everything" the anime. Why the heck is SakuSasu so popular. There is no love between them. Sasuke probably loves Naruto more then he will ever love Sakura.

THIS IS THE BEST ANIME EVER LOVE IT - Jada

31 Mew Mew Power

Oh geez. I seriously HATE mew mew power SO MUCH! But I love Tokyo mew mew. Like, in mew mew power, they changed the names! Their names were perfect the way they were! Like, ichigo turned into zoey! Like, what?! The name "zoey" doesn't really match her that much since "ichigo" is Japanese for "strawberry" and ichigo's hair is red/pink like a strawberry! And zoey was really annoying and loud, while ichigo was just adorable. And don't even get me started on how they changed the other girls. If you love Tokyo mew mew, I warn you: DO NOT EVER WATCH MEW MEW POWER! IT WILL RUIN YOUR LOVE FOR Tokyo MEW MEW!

Oh God... This dub ruined Tokyo Mew Mew. I absolutely loved Tokyo Mew Mew, but Mew Mew Power nearly ruined everything for me. I think I nearly stopped watching anime when I saw this, and I also stopped watching Tokyo Mew Mew. 4Kids, why must you kill the best animes in existence?!

So true... They killed everything good about it... -_- I demand a funimation redub... Who is with me...

This type of cancer is why god doesn't talk to us anymore

I never see anime make me wont it finish that fast.

Main here is annoying AND useless...i seriously prefer the supporting characters rather than the main

33 Tokyo Mew Mew Tokyo Mew Mew

I think that it's meant for younger kids. You old people with no imagination may hate it, but me and my younger aged friends really enjoyed it. It's cute, the characters are cute, and the villain is a fighting-worthy villain. I happen to like this one and don't think that it should be on this list.

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. Its 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 on to my rating of the show. I enjoyed this when I was 5, but not anymore. But this show is far too cheesy, it isn't even enjoyable after episode 26. 4.9/10 very forgettable. I'd recommend you to watch Princess Tutu, Happy Seven and Sailor Moon. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

God, this show is so cheesy, I bet it would taste bad.

I kinda hate this show. I watched an episode and it was boring. I was bored to death. And it is too girly. - AnimeDrawer

34 Girls Bravo Girls Bravo

This show had one of the worst plot lines in anime history, almost as bad as DearS. Why is a bathtub a portal to a world where 90% of its population are desperate and attractive women?

What kind of anime is this! I don't even CARE if it's hentai, how is it even biologically possible for you to be allergic to another human being?!

Every character is terrible and there's no other show that made me as angry as this one. Girls Bravo, burn in Hell please.

A bathtub is a portal to a world where 99% of the population are desperate and attractive women, because logic.

11/10 would be mesmerized again

35 Sword Art Online 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.

Characters are SO BLAND. They're basically the same, just with different appearances. The main character has the most generic appearance of an anime main character EVER and is way too overpowered it's just stupid. Plus, the time skips. Why?

The romance is weak compared to other romance anime and all of the characters are just... stupid.

However, the opening songs are pretty catchy.

Now I'm gonna rant about the main character:

1. He was a beta tester (nothing wrong with that but of course he has to be special in some way)

2. He can turn an AI into an item in about 10 seconds from inside the game, but decides not to make the log out button work again.

3. For some reason, every single woman's decides they want to date him, including a loli of questionable age.

Even though he eventually dates Asuna, but everyone saw that coming, let's be honest.

The first arc is the only good arc anyway. In the second arc, there's perverted crap on ...more

Okay, now Sword Art Online is just being treated like Naruto. I mean, Sword Art Online may not be the best show, but it's not the worst either. Same thing goes for Naruto. People will just hate on Sword Art Online for stupid reasons just because they think it's cool to do so (like with Naruto). For example, when people say Sword Art Online is a cheap harem series, they don't realize that the harem isn't even the main aspect of the series. Plus, many people just jump to conclusions that this anime is bad because the female characters are weak or they don't like the Fairy Dance arc. However, Asuna is not really weak and still strong after being freed, not to mention she at least tried to escape instead of waiting on Kirito to save her. Plus, Reki Kawahara is getting better with his writing and improving on sequels of the show. Finally, if people don't like the romance, there was an official global poll of 10,000 fans on the Top 10 Anime Couples hosted by Blog Honeyfeed and Kirito and ...more

I loved the first season, it got a little silly after they got to the fairy world and even more ridiculous when it came to the Gun Gale Online part. The first part of the story was really well done, great characters, art and you really felt for the characters stuck in a horrible situation. The second part just made you mad, you wanted to pummel the bad guy personally and it seemed to take too long to get to the point. The Gun Gale portion was a stretch but there's no need to rate the whole series as bad because the last season was weak.

Probably the worst thing I've ever seen. The logic behind some of the parts is broken (such as a 16 year old being able to hack an AI), plus the characters just get increasingly worse as the show goes on. Asuna goes from a strong female lead to being a damsel to being a pointless side character within 2 seasons. It's a disappointment. -C

36 K-On! K-On!

The only good thing is that SCANDAL do the song for the end credits. It's a stereotypical piece of rubbish. Also the voices are to squeaky for everything. Eventhough it's an anime they shouldn't progress that fast as a band/musician. It's also so boring... I don't know many people who like it...

Many are complaining that it's boring, and about the every day life of high school girls, but that's what you should expect from a Slice Of Life anime... You just expected too much out of a show about 4 high school girls joining a band...

The animation is good and the characters look good but the show itself is SO boring. It's just the daily life of 5 girls performing and stuff and they don't even make it cool or interesting.

It is tooo girly

This anime was really awful. It took me a full month to finish because it was that boring.

Good show shut up

The animation was nice but I quit watching about.. episode 3?

Incest, ecchi, harem, tsundere, loli, and general bad writing. All six marks of a dreadful anime cranked up to 11. - izayaorihara

38 Sword Art Online II Sword Art Online II Sword Art Online II is the second season of the Sword Art Online anime series, produced by A-1 Pictures and directed by Tomohiko Ito. It is divided into the "Phantom Bullet", "Calibur" and "Mother's Rosario" arcs.

Where SAO failed, SAO II succeeded, resulting in a mass improvement, so I honestly think the SAO franchise is being overhated now. First SAO is in first page (it was disappointing and somewhat bad but not one of the worst things ever) and now this is close to second. Just letting you know worse anime exist. - SelfDestruct

I will admit it has good animation and music... and that's about it

Even worse than SAO 1, and that's saying something. Despite being an action show, 90% of episode 1 is just Kirito and some guy talking. - izayaorihara

Half of the seaons is just filler - YourWaifuSucks

Yu Gi Oh was practically my childhood. The story was always great and so were the characters. So what if their playing a card game? In Pokemon they just have animal fights. Most of the characters had good back stories. Like Seto Kaiba, he was probably the most developed character. And it isn't some stupid kid show. There was death and violence. This should not be on here.

Personally I never thought the story was vague at all. There was always a new plot or bad guy who spiced up the show and the characters were all unique and special in their own way. They all had a look that no other anime characters could copy.

This is a work of art. Why the hell is it on this list!?

What?

Whoever put this on is just plain stupid. Perhaps it is a bit well perverted but it has storyline which is easy to forget when making an anime of this... genre lets call it.

"It would be epic if it wasn't perverted". Are you retarded? That's like saying "This porn would be great if the pizza guy's story was fleshed out and he didn't end up screwing the housewife." Come on, you got what you paid for.

This show is one of the best actually
