Top 10 Worst Anime


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Tokyo Ghoul Tokyo Ghoul

Seriously what jerk put Tokyo ghoul on this list. Well, at least it's not in the top ten. I WOULD BE PISSED I'm ALREADY PISSED THAT ITS ON THE LIST LIKE WHAT,

Well, they eat people. If you don't like that then why the heck are you watching Tokyo ghoul? That's the plot! It's okay because do you think they can control it? Well they can't. And saying the show made you feel like Hitler is just being a little crap. Don't ever say you want to feel like Hitler, idiot. The show was awesome. You really get attached to the characters like Juuzou who comes off like a freak at first but then you learn his story and he becomes your favorite character. And touching scenes LIKE WHEN KANEKI WAS CARRYING HIDE IT MAKES YOU WANT TO CRY. So, if you don't like Tokyo Ghoul, PLEASE give it another try?

I haven't watched Tokyo Ghoul yet, but how exactly did it place itself this high on a Top 10 Worst Anime list?! It's popular on TheTopTens, yet somehow, this ranks higher on a worst anime list than a greatest anime of all time list! There is no justice in the world! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The first episodes were cool, we have all that drama with Kaneki and such, but the story is a mix of slow pacing dialogues and fast paced plot compared to the manga. Kaneki is always easily beaten up and the second season (Root A) is lame, everything ends so fast and leave you with questions that lead you to the manga only to see the ending on anime was different and terrible compared to manga. The anime is popular because many people watch it thinking that they will became "gore experts" but the anime is not even that violent, all I see is a teenager with existencial crisis being beaten up by everyone, siding with the ones who beaten him up and a "what? " ending. Sorry anime fans, but the manga is way better...

Tokyo Ghoul is a good Anime but I highly recommend reading the Manga to - Starryskys122

42 Aki Sora

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

Aki the girl is a sex addict she always having too sex with Sora it's very disgusting and nasty that they are brother and sister and the twin sister gets upset about it having sex with Sora whoever wrote or made this anime should be in jail or forbidden to make it again.

I threw up this anime is really disgusting and very wrong. - PrincessPiper

43 Yu-Gi-Oh! Yu-Gi-Oh! Yu-Gi-Oh! was aired from 2000 to 2004 in Japan, and 2002 to 2006 in the US. It continues where the Toei Anime Left off. When 10th grader Yugi Muto solves the Millenium Puzzle, Yami Yugi emerges, taking control of him to help his friends. In Duel Monsters, they mostly played children's card games because more.

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!?

44 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

45 Duel Masters

This is awesome anime. Take it off

Digimon was a rip off of Pokemon

It feels like a rip off of yugioh, also the name is confusing as heck, (duel mosters) (duel masters). Honestly, it has too much of the same things.

I thinks its good in subbed but not as good as the origional Yugioh not released in English. It is called yugioh season0 in america. Look it up in subbed its actually really good but it got cancelled to do dual monsters because everyone wanted to buy the cards (that were a 4 ep appearence) this was durring the card boom caused by Pokemon,digimon,etc... So when they realized they could make more money off of a card spinoff they did.

46 Skelter Heaven

If you mix breasts with horrible animation, giant non-sync robots, and a terrible plot, bland characters, you have Skelter Heaven.

Everything about this anime sucks from the awful animation to the pathetic art. This anime is definitely worth a skip. Besides, the hilariously awful looking robots and retarded giant squid show how bad this series is.

I'm glad this finally made it to the top 30! The plot makes no sense, the art is hideous, and this anime was from the creators of Mars of Destruction.

I honestly think the characters or SO flat. Absolutely horrible animation, awful looking robots. The creators of Mars of Destruction (that's a cringy name) made this abomination. It's terrible, with a rubbish plot. An absolute disgrace to the anime world.

47 Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts

It's really rare for me to drop any anime I watch or should I said I never dropped any anime other than this. Regardless how boring the anime is, I'll keep watching and wait through the end but this anime is plain boring and annoying as hell.

Well your an idiot - americancartoonssuck

It's a complete mockery of the Educational System, the puns and running gags get old very quick, each character is annoying as hell, the Tsundere's... OH GOD the Tsundere's, the endings are unsatisfying, and every character using the term "Baka" every few minutes makes me want to rip out my eardrums! Burn that Fumizuki Academy to the ground and take those characters and end them with your Winchester rifle I say!

Baka! Good anime, good plot.

49 Excel Saga

It's actually quite cute. See and find out!

Most of the stuff on this list is b8. This confirms it

This show was never funny, for reals. How anyone can stand this pointless, obnoxious, boring show is beyond me.

Um...what?! Excel Saga is hilarious. I was honestly shocked to see Puni Puni Poemi on the list too. Honestly, the art was good, and it was super funny!

50 Free! Free! Free! is a Japanese anime television series directed by Hiroko Utsumi and produced by Kyoto Animation and Animation Do.

Why the heck would a person put this on this list. Sure, the entire show is based around swimming, but it was filled with good characters and had those times when things were so tense and they just ended the episode, like the relay. You just couldn't stop there. And it had funny times and times when you just wanted to know what happened to them and Rin.

Yeah this one doesn't deserve to be on the list. It's not the greatest most awesome anime out there but it's decent and I really love the characters.

That's because it IS made for fanservice.

This anime is actually good, EVEN with the fan service. Even though this anime has the female gaze view, at least the main characters aren't just eye candy. They have personalities, dreams, and goals, which makes them an interesting person and human being.

While most of the anime fan service for guys make the females only eye candies, who don't have much of a mind of their own, and make them more like robots.

51 InuYasha InuYasha InuYasha is a manga franchise created by Rumiko Takahashi. It was adapted into two anime television series produced by Sunrise. The first was broadcast for 167 episodes on Yomiuri TV in Japan from October 16, 2000 until September 13, 2004. The second series, called Inuyasha: The Final Act, began airing more.

I grew up watching this, but I was honestly embarrassed to tell anyone I watch Inuyasha. It was a guilty pleasure of mine. However, when I watched this after I grew up, oh jesus this thing was so cheesy. The characters weren't all that liable either. I was honestly hooked caused of the romance between kagome and Inuyasha since it was like a will they or won't they. Same goes for Sango and Miroku. After growing up a bit, this is honestly a pretty bad anime.

Are you kidding me? That is the greatest show in anime history and if you all disagree, eat my dust, then!

I just started watching it and am probably only on the 11th episode, but it's wonderful! The characters are funny and the fights are pretty awesome. And I like how the main villain is forced onto the good guys side! I thought it would be a sucky romance before I watched it, but I love it!

Inuyasha isn’t a bad Anime - Starryskys122

52 Squid Girl Squid Girl Ika Musume is the main character from 'Shinryaku! Ika Musume' an anime about a Squid Girl that wants to punish humanity for polluting the oceans, but ends up breaking a wall and is forced to work at a restaurant to pay off the damages.

Who put Squid Girl on here? I love it! No fanservice, barely any swearing, and nice animation!

I loved squid girl, and from a fifth grade point of view I thought it was an appropriate enough show to watch it with my family. - FilipinoNyan2004

Yeah it is nice! Why is it on here? It's super cute and has some good humor. I almost spat out my drink when she barfed ink on the pasta for the older sister lol. I really like it and it shouldn't be on this list.

Okay, why is this even on here. This show has perhaps the deepest lore, most compelling characters, and wonderful animation. The humor is top notch and the setting is both expansive and rich in taste. Check it out and see that it's better than Jojo.

Ain't the best or worst, just a comedy with heart and charm

53 Midori Days

This anime has one of the most retarded plot lines I've seen in anime ever! So basically, this guy can't get girls to like him and apparently, he's really good at fighting with his right hand. So then one day, he wakes up to find out that his hand has a small girl on it! Oh wait, let me rephrase that, the girl isn't on his hand, she IS his hand.

Now, wouldn't you find that weird and utterly disturbing. I sure did!

The worst anime I've ever seen, it absolutely makes no sense and the plot never evens out! It is not worth watching the worst in my book, epic fail and the english dubbed version is just an abomination to anime dub everywhere. A must watch to see first hand the worlds worst anime. Watch one episode and you'll see why its the worst ever!

Dull, cliched characters; horrible, disturbing plot; story design that would make you want to laugh your pants off, you get the gist.

Most of the comments about Midori Days here are by trolls? Don't believe me? Look up its ratings and all on imdb, what people write about it on Youtube and check it out for yourself. P.S a book (example) can have a well made story, but it is NOTHING for if it is not well written and Midori Days is a prime example of that. My favourite is probably the sister of Seiji

54 Initial D

He never even signed his name the whole time. This is supposed to be a show about banking dammit! - SelfDestruct

Don't even get me started on the "violation of laws of physics" thing on the cars! How the heck would a scrap AE86 beat an FD RX-7, considering the AE86 had no performance upgrades and that both drivers were equally skilled? And the saddest part is the car culture appreciates it. *smh* - SelfDestruct

Why would this even be on the list?! Not to mention that the guy who commented before me is totally wrong. The AE86 was modded from the start, you can hear Bunta talking about new setups and how he has tinkered with the car. If you went to the Initial D wiki you would find out that the 86 had 140hp at the beggining of the anime, that's 60 more hp than stock. That may not seem like like a huge improvement on the 86's chances of beating an RX7 but consider that Takumi had been driving that road since he was 15 or 14, he has supreme car control and knows a few cheap tricks to be faster in the corners such as his famous (spoiler alert)

*spoilers*spoilers*spoilers*****gutter technique*****spoilers*spoilers*spoilers*

Appart from the obvios over sight that driffting is slower than apex conering(which is a main plot point) the show is extremely accurate and goes into detail when it come to driving techniques and the tecnicalities of cars and how they behave. The only issue I see ...more

55 Akame ga Kill! Akame ga Kill!

One of the problems I had with this anime was how they handled the deaths. There were only a few moments where they referred back to the deceased Night Raid members that made me actually care about the deaths. However, once most major character deaths came along, the shock value decreases over time and the series seems to want to make you move on by mushing it with poorly-timed comic relief. But the anime still does earn a score of 7.5 out of 10 stars for me. While it's not the worst, it could have done better as an anime series. I did hear there could be a reboot of it... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Great anime but nope. Not flawless though. The big problem was where the anime took a different path from the manga starting around episode 20. This irritated me because it could have had more episodes if it had followed the manga (still ongoing). - SelfDestruct

Just shock factor everywhere, piss poor storytelling, and mishandling of tone throughout the series!

I loved the anime but I couldn't handle the sudden deaths it was too quick and sudden. They problem I have is this...

56 Clannad Clannad

I was surprised not to like Clannad, considering I'm a pretty big moe fan, but when the girls act and sound like 5 year olds and the show expects you to take it seriously...sorry, but I couldn't take it seriously...I just couldn't. You can thumbs down me if you want, but this is my opinion on the show, and I hope everyone chooses to respect that.

I couldn't really finish it... It got too boring afterwards

This is so dumb and boring. The whole 8 hours is some girl trying to make a theatre club. Too much crying, not enough blood. Lacks in action. Clannad after story was pretty good though.

I watched it at my friend's house and it was pretty bad

57 Bible Black

This show is the most disgusting hentai I have ever seen. Enough said.
(This is not anime)

I-I didn't know what it was...I looked it up...I'm 10 years old and scarred for life

One of the reasons why I think this would be a bad anime, is because it has the word Bible and it's not used right. they have bad crappy scenes in this.

Hentai, not anime. It doesn't belong on this list. I don't watch weird hentai, but I'd consider watching this just because the name is a King Crimson reference lmao - izayaorihara

58 Vampire Knight Vampire Knight

Nothing but a drama anime with some tidbits of action that barely entertain me. Don't get me wrong it's not that I don't like drama bit this show just takes the word drama and overdoses on it to the point when it's actually laughable. The plot put simply is just about a girl wondering whether she should be with two guys -Zero or Kaname. The main character just HAD to let me sit through her melodramatics about her love life. The characters are just all cardboard and not likeable at all for me. I dropped this show after the first season.

I wasted two months watching this anime. It was so terribly dramatic, I couldn't stand it, yet I kept going thinking it would get better. LIES. I wasted valuable time in which I could have watched something so much better, - SoulDeathTheKidMaka414

Okay the only thing that kept me going was the art. And even with that gorgeous art, I still had to drop it around chapter 60 because I just couldn't stand the mushy, melodramatic & ridiculous plot. The story started out with lots of potential & it just went downhill.

I read the manga and watched the show. Just for Zero. Because he was the only not annoying character. If it weren't for him, I wouldn't have continued to read or watch. Plus he's hot. - Chansey

59 Digimon Digimon “Digimon” is a term commonly used to sum up several Japanese anime series based on the Bandai virtual pet brand “Digimon” (Dejimon). As of 2017, there are 7 series: “Digimon Adventure” (1999), “Digimon 02” (a.k.a. “Digimon Adventure 02”) (2000), “Digimon Tamers” (2001), “Digimon more.

I don't know which came after the other, but I still like Digimon better than Pokemon. At least Digimon has different characters for each season. Pokemon has aired for 18 years but Ash is still 10, and it's like he's never even gets close to his goal. I feel like the ideas of Pokemon have gone old and they should create a new goal. Digimon has the same theme 'save the world with Digimon', but they execute it differently every season. So Digimon shouldn't be on this list at all, not higher than Pokemon. Just my opinion.

This was my childhood, but I got rejected at school because every one liked Pokemon -_-

Get your facts right, Digimon came after Pokemon.
Digimon was created in 1997 whilst Pokemon was created in 1995. Therefore if anything Digimon copied Pokemon.

Why vote for Pokemon, Powerpuff Girls Z or Sailor Moon? Vote for this Pokemon rip off instead!

60 Foxy Nudes

Foxy! I never watched this anime, but what a name!

Actually this show is about a war veteran rehabilitating a blinded hound dog. The part in episode 3 where his daughter comes to japan from their home country made me cry. The part in season 4 where he died ruined it for me. SPOILER ALERT HE DIES AT THE END I'm SORRY.

"Foxy Nudes"? Sounds like it came from the 70's...

I'm pretty sure Foxy Nudes was a term used in the 70's on playboy magazines
