This article is about the top 10 worst anime. At the same time, there are animes that are incredibly popular and known globally, dubbed in various languages. Not all works of creators manage to reach that place.
It be noted none of the animes listed are due to purely personal opinions. The list was made based on ranking made on various sites and other sources. Be that due to poor animation skills, poor dialogue, subpar or unlikable side characters or even protagonist, no character development, lack of interesting plot or nonsensical plot, garbage fighting scenes,, and so on. So here you go:
Top 10 worst animes:
The police forces are using a highly advanced AI superweapon known as an “EX-ARM” for their agendas and defeating their enemies. It is later discovered that AI is the digital brain of Akira Natsume, a high school student. He finds himself awake in a mechanical body sixteen years after he dies. He meets Minami Uezeno and his android partner Alma as he adapts to his new life.
The most significant negative point about this anime is its animation. It’s not just average, it’s straight-up bad. The show tried to make this anime in 3D with CGI effects but with no margin of success. The fight scenes are horrible. In addition to being sloppy, the fight scenes have no substance. The settings are not smooth and are filled with discrepancies. Even plotwise, it doesn’t have much to offer. The characters are dull, with minimal expressions and voice changes. The characters are monotonous, with their faces,, rarely showing a changeEX-ARM in action
Tenkuu Danzai Skelter+Heaven
Alta Mira Agency has to repel the extraterrestrials that suddenly threaten Tokyo. Otsuya Funagai, the story’s protagonist, has to repel the alien invasion along with his fellow members of the Battle sole unit. But his relationship with Rin Ichikawa, his fellow member, may jeopardize the entire mission.
This anime’s animation, voice acting, and plot have nothing that can beconsidered average. The characters and their story are not that attractive either.
Two cousins, Phil and Jack, have now to live together due to the compulsion of their uncle. How will these two from different backgrounds live together under the same roof?
The central negative point about this anime is its animation. The attempts to make it comedic and humorous have only made it worse. The characters don’t have much going for them either, and the voice acting is also not good.
A pair of orphaned brothers and sisters, Utsutsu and Yume, respectively, are to survive alone after escaping severe domestic violence. Mysteriously, the brother-sister pair contracts the pupa virus transforming the little sister Yume into a man-eating being who needs human flesh to stay alive. The big brother gains regenerative powers and offers his flesh to save his sister’s hunger and cannibalism.
Pupa is meant to be an anime with gore and horror genres, but it cannot deliver correctly due to its short episodes. The plot is heavily rushed. The sharp attacks do not allow the scenes and action to set in properly and cannot give off the necessary vibes as a horror anime. The censoring doesn’t do it any good either.
Island of the giant insects (2019)
Island of the giant insect, a series written by Yasutaka Fujimi. A plane carrying a group of classmates crashes into an unknown island filled with gigantic insects. The group must now survive, fend off the giant insects, and prevent themselves from becoming food until some help arrives.
Another anime with a gore genre that failed spectacularly. The insects were shown using CGI, which is not an excellent way. The manga has much more gore, but the anime lacks much of it. That only leaves a wannabe gore anime with fanservice now and then.
Eiken, a Japanese series written by Seji Matsumaya. The story is about Densuke Mafune, who just enrolled in Zashono Academy. While trying to do his best in his new school and joining extracurricular activities, he joins the Eiken club. The club is somehow filled with busty women, and the club’s activities always entail bikinis. Densuke has his eyes on Chiharu Shinonome, a shy and reserved girl.
The show is filled with busty girls itching to show off their cleavage, and at other times, the screen is occupied with pants shots, even to the point that it takes up all space on the screen. The bikini event also seems to happen now and then. The plot is boring and makes no sense. It often portrays scenes with inappropriate stuff happening with young underage children.
My sister, My writer
It’s a Japanese series written by Seiji Ebisu. The story portrays a genius third-year student Suzuka Nagami and her brother Yū Nagami. Suzuka had written a light novel that had become extremely popular, and she gave all that credit to her brother. Later it is seen that Suzuka harbors incestuous feelings for her brother.’
Aside from the obvious issue of incest that is widely looked down upon, and this isn’t Game of Thrones with its fantastic plot, which merits forgiveness to some extent, it also suggests inappropriate things regarding minors many times over the series. The characters themselves are pretty generic and dull. They do not have any attractive qualities that will pull the audience toward them to sympathize with their cause. The situation that the characters happen to come across is also quite cringy. The animes try to figure out new problems in ‘How to do your sister.’
Wonder Momo (2014)
Momoko, an aspiring idol, now fights off an alien invasion targetting Tokyo. Warudemon, the King of invading aliens, targets Momoko and her surrounding people to eliminate her. Tired of getting pushed around, Momoko has now decided to face off against the alien horde using her mysterious gifts.
The story is not able to maintain a constructive plot. The story is all over the place, making it difficult to connect the chain of events across the series. The episode length is also short, and quite a big chunk of that time is used for fan service. The character outfits have no practicality and are simply there for fan service.
Boku no Pico
Pico, a young boy working at his grandfather’s coffee shop, Café Bebe, meets Tamotsu, a white-collar worker. And they develop a sexual and romantic relationship. They meet each other as Tamotsu goes on a vacation to escape his mundane life and try out something exciting.
The worst thing about this anime is its depiction of child pornography and also suggestions for it. The anime is infamous for its ‘car scene.’ Tamotsu, in his desperation, has done many inappropriate things, like sniffing and licking Pico’s neck to making him lick the ice cream that had fallen on Tamotsu’s shirt as Pico offered him ice cream. The creator of this series has described the anime as the first shotacon anime. The anime has shota, hentai, and yaoi as its genre.
Diabolik Lovers is a Japanese series by Rejet. Yui Komori is to be a sacrificial bride of six vampire half-brothers. The vampires take turns drinking her blood and torturing her.
The major failure of this anime is basically due to the female lead being a plaything and a living blood bag for the five vampire brothers. They treat her harshly and treat her worse than a toy. The brothers consider her infatuation annoying and decide to teach her a lesson about it. The watchers are not so thrilled about her attitude either. She still has lingering feelings for her crush even after being subjected to such harsh treatment and not considering her physical or mental well-being.
She has developed Stockholm Syndrome towards her captors. Strong, independent women often looked up to are held high in regard and are well-received by the audience these days. A weak, naive submissive girl who cannot carry her weight is entirely the opposite of that. Despite the excellent animation and the fantastic voice-over by the VAs, Diabolik lovers have failed to deliver. The primary reason is the plot and writing. Yui’s relationship with the vampire brothers is abusive and not fun to watch.
