41 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.

42 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.

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

44 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!

45 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.

46 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.

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.

Why is it here? I really like this anime. - NuMetal

47 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

48 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

I agree it's a bad anime. My expectations were so high. It let me down. Don't let them tell you it's the saddest yet most beautiful anime you'll ever see. It's boring, really boring and generic.

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

49 Bible Black

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

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.

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

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

50 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 got crippling deppresion watching this

51 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!

52 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

53 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

54 Angel Beats

Well I really liked angel beats especially kanade tachibana. so I would like to know why angel beats is here, too.

Why is Angel Beats even on this list? I am pretty new to Anime, so this is the first series I decided to watch. It was fantastic. It gave us a pretty funny beginning, with the past of Yuri and Iwasawa, great couples, amazingly designed, good plot, and emotional moments. The ending made me cry. Who added this Anime to the list, sit and think about your life.

Funny how there is an anime higher than this on the list called "Angle Beats"

Boring. dropped it

55 Keijo!!!!!!!!

The embodiment of everything wrong with anime. - izayaorihara


This is one of the worst anime I've watched! This is the female version of Free! Eternal Summer.
1. Big booty and big boobs
2. Terrible scenes that makes you puke
3. No laughing girls
4. This anime sucks
5. Terrible graphics - Neinwott

The premise is absolutely ridiculo us. a sport where you have to knock other's into the water with your butt, that's stupid .

56 Witchblade

I understand why this show is not popular.

Am I the only one who watched this?

57 Zatch Bell! Zatch Bell!

Why the hell is this here? This show was my childhood. Yea I understand they put too much emphasis on "friends and heart are my power. But how could you not like this anime for the awesome story and well developed characters!

I HATE, I repeat, HATE Zatch Bell with a huge passion! It's just that it's over-dramatically violent and weird! Well, I DO like the Mamodo spells, though, but WHY Cartoon Network AND TOONAMI, WHY?! WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DUB THIS HUNK OF TRASH?! I like it's original Japanese orchestra, but its USA-dubbed music is absolutely UNINSPIRED and along with the English voice acting which is also HORRIBLE! My brother did grow up with the anime and I have NO problem with people liking Zatch Bell or Gash Bell, but the anime does look uninspired and weird to me.

The English dub is the worst part because it makes Zatch Bell (the character) sound like Jimmy Neutron. But I like the show and the Japanese version.

Satan eyes.

Go outside: The anime.

I couldn't stand the characters, the shiro fanservice was disgusting, and the logic fights got pretty boring. The only thing I did like was the art, to be honest.

I hear it's horrible

Shiro is 11. - izayaorihara

59 Highschool of the Dead Highschool of the Dead

- Boobs are even ok
- Not so much history is even ok

Joining both those factors in one anime definitively ISN'T OK. The anime hasn't something very impressive and hangs on the fanservice to have fans. Deceiving.

As has been said... The entire plot is basically just "JIGGLY BUTTS AND BOOBIES! Oh wait, aren't there some zombies out there? " At one point, the MC fires an assault rifle over his main love interest while using her boobs as a cushion for the rifle (as they jiggle even more insane than usual). This isn't even played strictly for laughs, as she is seen in a back brace for the next few episodes... So its creepy on more than one account.

Too much vulgar scenes

I know right! It gets in the way too much and screws up the whole thing itself!

It's ok... I guess..

The fanservice may be a tad bit too much though. - DerpyPolarBear

60 Queen's Blade Queen's Blade

I personally like this anime and wish that it could have a possible crossover with Naruto (my opinion)

It would be good if it didn't have all that nudity.

The only nudity they seem to show in Queen's Blade is breasts, eh?!

No depth in the anime. A butchered story and enough plot holes to cover the moon. But I guess the only reason you would watch this is for the fanservice which is sometimes cencored.
