Top 10 Worst Shounen and Shoujo Anime

This list has some of the STUPIDEST shounen and shoujo anime I have ever seen. If you're a fan of these animes ,no offence.It's just from my imagination.

The Top Ten

1 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". more.


This isn’t even shouen or shouojo?

I agree. I HATE this anime. It's crap. Gorgeous animation, sure. But horrible execution of a great idea. And it's just SO sexist! It really is the prime example of otaku wish fulfillment. I don't care if Asuna is supposedly a vice guild leader or whatever. She doesn't really do crap except with regards to Kirito and their relationship. Her character was shoved to the side to make Kirito look even MORE powerful. Not that he needs any more of that. He has got to be the biggest Gary Stu. Ever. I agree, both him and Asuna are so so annoying and stupid. What the hell is with them running off in the woods to get married and screw around, while other players are literally dying? Selfish brats! Nothing pisses me off more than two 'love birds' who don't give a crap about anyone but each other. And what happened in the Fairy Dance arc is just unforgivable. Why does this crap even exist?
Oh, and I love how Asuna's name is pronounced ASSoona.

They're planning to release a movie in 2017. - Dragontree102

2 Puella Magi Madoka Magica Puella Magi Madoka Magica Puella Magi Madoka Magica is a 2011 Japanese anime television series produced by Shaft and Aniplex, directed by Akiyuki Shinbo, written by Gen Urobuchi, music by Yuki Kajiura, opening sang by ClariS, ending by Kalafina (sometimes by the seiyuus) and original characters by Ume Aoki. It also has 3 movies, more.

Actually, this is the BEST anime.

Most of the items here are good shows. Except School Days, Sailor Moon Crystal (original is better), that Yushi show I never heard of and maybe SAO - MLPFan

Also, can I be the first to point out that Madoka Magica is a seinen? - MLPFan

Wait wait wait…why is this above Sword Art Online and School Days? This was the first anime I've ever seen and honestly, I fell in love with it. The grim edge to the magical girl genre was refreshing in my opinion. Sure, sometimes it was a tad formulaic, but it was great and heart-touching nonetheless.

3 Sailor Moon Crystal Sailor Moon Crystal Sailor Moon Crystal, known in Japan as Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal, is a 2014 original net animation adaptation of the shōjo manga series Sailor Moon written and illustrated by Naoko Takeuchi and produced in commemoration of the original series' 20th anniversary.

In the theme song, the lyrics said that they don't need men to protect them. I saw the OPPOSITE of that! I thought " A reboot of Sailor Moon,How bad could it be" Turns out I was wrong. - Dragontree102

They are too thin...

This totally deserves its spot. I made a list here explaining perfectly why it's bad (forgive the error in the title, I meant to type "Sailor Moon Crystal"):

4 School Days School Days An anime series was developed by TNK with joint production by Avex Entertainment, Lantis, Marvelous Entertainment, Pony Canyon and Jinnan Studio. more.

It should be first place. It's about how some pervert takes advantage of girls and get's them messed up for life. In the end, one girl dies and the other hugs the loose head of their dead boyfriend. He makes one of them pregnant and then her stomach is ripped open. The cover is stupid and just shows to generic girls with phones glued to their eyes. Basically, complete garbage. - Skullkid755

As far as I know this isn't a magical girl anime, but is is so bad that I will vote for it anyway.

Too much violence, whiny characters and it is pure cheesy.

It is the stupidest anime I have ever seen! What's the point of watching an anime that is kinda boring too. - Dragontree102

5 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 more.

Why is Naruto this high up? Some people think it has bad animation, but when you're making 700 episodes cut them some slack! Also, the storyline is NOT boring if you actually take the time to appreciate it and understand. It faces many real world problems, like bullying, world peace, betrayal, love, and all that!

Naruto deserves to be on the list because, it's not inapprppriate show at all, but it's still bad! It has lazy animation, it has annoying characters and it is boring! - Dragontree102

6 Fairy Tail Fairy Tail Fairy Tail is a manga franchise created by Hiro Mashima. The manga has been adapted into an anime series produced by A-1 Pictures and Satelight, which began broadcasting in Japan on October 12, 2009. Additionally, A-1 Pictures and Satelight have developed seven original video animations and an animated more.

Should be number 1 lmao

Trash in the name of an Animated Show

Worst rip off ever.

Lol naruto and death note are way more better than this trash tail

7 Death Note Death Note Death Note is a Japanese television drama series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. The show is centered around Light Yagami a promising highschooler and aspiring detective with a strong sense of "justice".

Even though my brother liked this show... somehow.Is it because it is super violent?!?! I'm sorry but it is on the list! I hated the main character! - Dragontree102

How's it violent it's just writing in a book and watching people fall down if you're referring to most of the killings. - Skullkid755

8 Pitite Princess Yuushi

And there is also no real plot about a girl entering a princess contest - Dragontree102

It is boring. The creatures are ugly! - Dragontree102

9 Dragon Ball Dragon Ball Dragon Ball is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation. It made anime popular in America and is based on the manga of the same name by Akira Toriyama. It was dubbed in English on Cartoon Networks Toonami block and still has many fans today.

Dragon ball is nothing but annoying, ear-piercing GARBAGE! It is boring. The characters were all annoying.I even felt stupid for watching this! - Dragontree102

10 Sugar Sugar Rune Sugar Sugar Rune

I actually like this. And please look at the plot. The difference between Sugar Sugar Rune and Doremi is that DoReMi is a magical girl based on MUSIC and Sugar Sugar Rune is about SWEETS. The plot between both anime is DIFFERENT.-Vestalis

It's some stupid rip-off of Ojamajo Doremi. It's looks likes garbage, it sounds like torture and it is just so horrible. - Dragontree102

The Contenders

11 Kaichou Wa Maid Sama Kaichou Wa Maid Sama Maid Sama! is a shōjo manga series by Hiro Fujiwara. It is serialized in Hakusensha's monthly shōjo manga magazine, LaLa. There are currently 18 published volumes under the Hana to Yume Comics imprint in Japan.
12 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.

It's just bad. Even Beyblade is better than this.

13 Black Clover Black Clover

This is the worst, most lazy cash grab pile of garbage ever put to screen.

14 Clannad Clannad Clannad is the anime adaptation of the visual novel developed by KEY for Windows PCs in 2004, which was later ported to PlayStation consoles and the Xbox 360. The game was the best-selling PC game in 2004 and charted in national top 50 rankings several more times afterwards. Clannad has been adapted more.
15 Soul Eater Soul Eater Soul Eater is an anime series directed by Takuya Igarashi and produced by Bones, Aniplex, Dentsu, Media Factory, and TV Tokyo, which adapts the Soul Eater manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Ohkubo.

Very dumb and unentertaining. Not as bad as Black Clover, though.
