Top Ten Worst YouTube Anime Reviewer Channels

Since there are a lot of anime reviewers on YouTube that I don't like, I want to express my opinions on here by making a list of the Top 10 Worst Anime Reviewers. Feel free to add any you think are bad as well. Sorry if there are any anime reviewers on here that people like. Please feel free to express your opinion as well and vote.

The Top Ten

1 Mother's Basement

He's way too handsome also. It makes me angry. SAO is love, SAO is Life. Klein best girl

Hey guys this is the real deal guys I saw his Twitter feed this is him - Hoxton

I actually like Mother's Basement but he wants to be higher on this list so I'm doing my duty to help him out.

He actually knows about this list? Also, are you the one who keeps on voting constantly for this item? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Oh, what a horrible lad, with his title now misinforming people, playing us for fools. What credit in criticizing art could he have by not funneling his hate and resentment of others' talents and successes, when he can support himself and find love and respect among peers? No, he threw the honor and responsibility of being a reviewer away when he stopped leeching from his mother's teat, found happiness in his work, and tries to engage with his audience. His ability to express his opinions and actually explaining them coherently sickens me, truly, what I believe to be great and terrible should hold sway and he should kowtow to my will. Well, at least my vengeance shall be swift and absolute, by complaining about him on a website made for crapping on people who don't know or care about my existence, while producing only the barest bones way of yelling for others validation, a top ten list made in less time than it takes to microwave a hot pocket!

He is the best anime reviewer but I still voted for him

2 ThatAnimeSnob

It says so in the name. He IS an anime snob. Not only is his fan base annoying, but the snob is so harsh in his opinions. Especially since his reviews are BIASED. Plus, he refuses to admit when he is wrong in his opinions and his snob persona gets on your nerves once it gets old. Oh, and basically all he does is rant about stuff like plot holes. I'm not sure what his opinion on SAO is, but I don't want to know. Actually, I just looked him up and found out he insults fan of the series. It's okay to hate an anime, but you don't have to bully people just for liking it! He really is a snob. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Seriously, I think he just likes to insult series just to make people mad. He also thinks anyone who has a different opinion than him is an idiot. Condescending much? - Elric-san

And did I forget to mention that he also judges an anime based on the studio that made it? Or judging the source material solely based on the quality of the anime and calling them crap despite having not read any of them? Yeah he is the worst.

Even though I cannot understand a single word from his mouth, I know it's garbage.

3 Anime America Podcast

I Googled up "Anime America death threats," and the only thing I found about it was on this very site. In all of the videos from them I've seen, I've never once heard them tell anyone to kill themselves over a difference of opinion. Anime America has always been fairly respectful towards people who disagree with them. If they give a scathing review to something you like, they are only giving their opinion on a show, and not attacking you personally. In their reviews of Sword Art Online and Clannad, they even told their audience to check out the shows for themselves and draw their own conclusions. Yeah, they're biased. Yeah, they get too excited about stuff they like. Yeah, they get too scathing about stuff they don't like. But they've never presented themselves as an authority on anime, and I've never seen any evidence of them sending death threats. I'm not normally one to pull the "you're all just (insert simple thing here)" card, but I think you're all just ...more

I'm not saying she's wrong to dislike SAO. I'm perfectly fine with people not liking it as long as they respect my opinion on it. The main reason why I hate Anime America is mainly because of how abusive and disrespectful this channel is. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I think their voices intend to make you feel offended. I don't think their opinions are backed up by any reasoning, only the personal tastes of the people who run the channel. I completely agree with all their points on the faults and mistakes of SAO, but they just rub it in, in a way that feels like you were just punched in the stomach after eating a plate of bad pasta. I just watched their Your Lie in April review, and it was just a plot summary with themes, and a person saying the anime was "amazing" or "extraordinary" without citing examples from the actual series. The whole channel feels like an empty shell, and inside there are people that are a little too excited about anime and Japanese culture trying to do proper reviews and top 10's.

Why did Anime America Podcast decide to make a TheTopTens account?! Why?! I'm just glad they're not that active since they have a lot of comments with dislikes! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It is fake. Because the folks at AA are professionals, what they do here is very unprofessional - YourWaifuSucks

I have to say they respect everyone's opinion and just because because Robyn does not like clannad of Sword art online people start to unsubscribe why there very kind and you need to respect there and you're opinions the death threat thing is not true there never rude or disrespectful please take them off this list

4 Digibro

Whoops. I thought I could vote people down on the list. In any case, I like Digibro, and think he brings a lot of good to the table. He's very opinionated when talking about some things, but for the most part, I think he's entertaining, and makes fair points.

It's clear from looking at his MAL profile that he actively tries to hate anime. He sensationalizes his condescending "elitist" attitude by taking amazing anime and treating them like garbage. He's truly an enemy to the fandom.

When someone posts a video about "How to terrible series in one episode" and list a few of your favorites in the list, and to top it off criticizes the most still little things. It feels more like he's trying to justify his opinions than anything else.

Yeah, justifying opinions onto others doesn't sound like a good idea, and acting like an elitist is never a good idea.

I say stick with Bennett the Sage instead, though he hates some classic anime others love, he doesn't come of like trying to force his opinion onto others and for his review on Sailor Moon R the Movie (one of my favorite anime movies/films of all time), while he admitted he wasn't a fan of the series he still did his research, did a damn good review and understood why it's beloved by other people.

5 Misty/Cronexia

Don't know much about him, but as I've heard in the anime community, he's pretty much hated. According to most people, this dude is usually such a troll and calls average anime like Danganronpa a masterpiece. Plus, he uses bait thumbnails and most anime fans claim his Top 10 lists are bad. Not much I can say about him, but please feel free to say anything I missed. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Well, now I have a reason to hate that buffoon. Just when I thought he was one of the only few YouTubers who liked Sword Art Online, he went and stabbed me in the back by making a 7 Reasons to Avoid Sword Art Online video. LITTLE TRAITOR! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Sorry to intrude but, did you watch the video you just mentioned? He said at the beginning that it was a JOKE! I'm not a fan or a subscriber to him just to tell you there is a disclaimer in the beginning of the video. - BM55

He's a dumbass. But I love that cartoon thing he made. It's so bad, it loops back around to being good.

This one is quite controversial...
1. Clickbaits...
2. Naruto video controversy... (Its not perfect... but It's not terrible. In my opinion). He needs to be careful what he's about to upload a video.
3. Being in the Watchmojo's Top 10 Anime Reviewer. (He didn't deserved to be on the list. Even thought I dislike Watchmojo. But What the Heck anyway :/ )

Ok, so I don't care if he bashes my favorite anime or likes my least favorite one. I don't care that his logic is often flawed (to the point where, even if the anime he's talking about is something I've never seen, I can tell his arguments are poor). Why? Because he's just so boring. Seriously, I tried watching a video of his that was like, 15 minutes long, because I thought maybe, just maybe, I'd be interested in the conclusion he'd give, and I quit halfway through, because it was feeling like I had already been watching for over 20 minutes. He never gets to the point, and just seems to be rambling for most of his videos, except he tries to hide this rambling with "smart and analytical" language to make it sound like he's actually saying something. I suppose this is part of the bigger problem of his: he's extremely pretentious. And with his cringe worthy uniform, hairstyle, and smug attitude, it's clear what this guy is doing: he's trying to look like some sort of ...more

Sorry, but this guy did not deserve to be number one on Watchmojo's Top 10 YouTube Anime Reviewer Channels. Maybe top 5 material at least. Anyways, the dude thinks he has such good taste in anime when we as an audience could argue against it, and he is so biased in his videos as well. For example, he spends a portion of a video talking about how Soul Eater is the best anime ever (that's not the point, dude). Plus, whenever he talks about animation with anime like Sword Art Online and Tokyo Ghoul, instead of referring to the actual aspects of the animation in those anime such as their great fighting scenes and nice art, he just goes on and on about Sword Art Online having fanservice (um, this is animation we're talking about, not fanservice! ) and Tokyo Ghoul having too much censorship (well, what about the fighting scenes and the art?! ) Anyways, I used to respect this guy, but now I don't as much anymore. At least he's better than Anime America, though. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This guy is the definition of pretentious. He's the kind of reviewer whose critiques can best be summed up as: "Can I use this to make myself seem smarter and analytical? No? Then it must be bad, because heaven forbid a work not be interested in making me look smart."

This guy has a massive problem of thinking that certain anime should be only the way HE imagines, or else it's bad. Now, all critics have preferences, but randomly criticizing Umaru-chan for not having romance? What? And of course there was his infamous review of Nozaki-kun, where he got upset that a parody of shoujo wasn't a straight up romance. He also shows bias, such as complaining that Nozaki-kun's humor is repetitive when Azumanga Daioh, a show he likes, has equally repetitive humor. I know he got better about that show, but he still seems to under the impression that because the ending wasn't what he wanted, it was bad. Nozaki-kun isn't even a spectacular anime in my opinion, but his review of it was just embarrassing. I though the ending was the best part, because it showed that Sakura's love wasn't returned, she didn't whine about being friendzoned, but still liked Nozaki as the dense friend she had made throughout the anime. But he, of course, ignored any possible merit to ...more

7 Double4anime

The fact he's only number seven says a lot about the people voting on this site, tells me that the people voting on here are idiots, since the guy should be in the top 3 at the very least. At least some of the people higher on the list can say something substantial about anime.

More like Double4a__hole! I don't know much about this guy, but based on what I heard about him, he has bad taste in anime and can't get the grip of what a good anime is! And he gets too hyped up towards anime he likes! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Not to mention when they're saying the truth about Naruto or any other anime he likes he always flips the middle finger in front of us

8 Forneverworld

Even though I love Sword Art Online, I gotta admit one thing. This guy has bad taste in anime. While it's nice he admires anime like Code Geass, Death Note, and Madoka Magica, he really needs to balance between talking about the pros and cons of each anime and not forgetting to specifically talk about the flaws they have. Also, he calls Fairy Tail a masterpiece. Actually, I'm okay with someone calling an anime a masterpiece, because since it is their opinion, that's fine. But even though I think SAO is a masterpiece, I'm not afraid to admit it has some flaws. But Forneverworld disregards that and treats every anime as if they were flawless. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Forneverworld sucks

he sucks

Don't get me started with this guy for one he is also a narutard just like just like the hypocrite known as Double 4 anime and also he is just so fugly.And the dumbasses at Watchmojo named him the 2nd best Dragon ball you tuber

9 Mr. Anime

Not saying murdering your family is good, but it has nothing to do with anime. But still, he's psycho!

Murdered his family.

Say what you will about others, none of them killed their families.

Should be number one.

The guy pretty much acts like he has bipolar disorder. His anime reviews aren't even reviews at all. When it's an anime he hates like Sword Art Online, he immediately starts hating on the anime and not getting to the point. But when it's an anime he likes, he enters fanboy mode and talks about how much of a masterpiece it is while ignoring its flaws. I'm sorry, but I could do better reviews of anime than him! Then again, I should have put him higher on the list then 8! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Contenders

11 JcGreen

His videos are a fresh of breath air

He is here for legitimately comparing Akame Ga Kill's Night Raid to the POWER RANGERS! Yes he actually does that in his worst anime of 2014 video. - SelfDestruct

He might be a good anime reviewer, but I really wish he would be more diverse in what anime series he reviews! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

13 Chibi Reviews

The guy could do better by upping his standards for what anime are good and try to get to the main point of an anime he is reviewing. But I don't really know what else is bad about him. Feel free to point out anything else in what areas he might fall short in. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He steals from reddit and 4chan.

14 TheAnimeMan

I wouldn't really call Joey a reviewer... - Anonymousxx

He never actually talks about anime just the social side of it like how other people are weebs and he isn't because he happens to be half japanese and how hyped he is for a certain anime><

I am praying that was a joke

More like The Weeaboo Man

This guys channel is a gathering place for Akame Ga Kill and SAO haters, where in the comments they constantly call fans of those series "retard 14 year olds" and other horrible things. The guy himself is annoying, half of his vocabulary are "Bad, Horrible, Horrendous, God-Awful,, Terrible" etc. I question his status as an anime "fan", seeing as he thinks Code Geass and Gurren Lagann are terrible, everyone has the right to have opinions like that for those series, but he also thinks MOST SHONEN are horrible, in fact he thinks SCHOOL DAYS IS A BETTER ANIME THAN TH EM! l ook at his scores he gave on myanimelist, so many 1s, he just ignores anything positive about the series, also on his myanimelist at the top he has the infamous Miyazaki "Anime was a mistake" quote, also in his reviews of Gurren Lagann and Fairy Tail on Myanimelist, he pretty much implies the people that like those series are morons, that's just horrible and I remember him saying ...more - Coreylordo

16 DouchebagChocolat

He's too much of a veggie loving fat boy. I want to drink with him til we both do something we'll regret.

Uhhh... What? I heard Demo is pretty good, I like his attitude. I've watched his analysis and they are pretty fun to watch.

This iguana loving douchebag never posts videos all I want is for him to review Naruto and say it is the best anime. - multisiffi

Hates Naruto and believes that bad anime like Boku no Pico should be watchable

He was obviously being sarcastic when he said you should watch Boku no Pico. - drdevil

17 Lost Pause

Honestly I just find him annoying

This guy is so cringy, that time were he took a quiz online, I was dying on the inside - YourWaifuSucks


Just pause at literally any point of his videos which show his face and you'll know he's a psycho and needs ~a~ the'rapist

18 King of Lightning

Can't respect people liking Naruto (the character)

19 Einshine

Really annoying, acts spoilt and swears too much

He's more of a weeb than actual weeaboos

20 JesuOtaku

She is a biased crybaby who bashes on Anime
