Top 10 Worst Anime Ever Created

I am pretty sure you have seen dozens of “top 10 anime lists”. But have you ever seen a list of the worst anime ever ranked by a real sample of people?

I have actually always wondered what is the worst anime ever (according to people) but could not find an accurate answer: there is more than 10 000 anime in the database. Who is even close to finishing all of those? Yeah, no one. We have to rely on the users’ data.

I’m utterly happy to state that MAL saved the day again and helped me to create this list full of awful anime which you should definitely put on your blacklist!

10. Ningen Doubutsuen

  • Type: movie
  • Rating: 2.75/10 according to 1,908 users
  • Aired: 2016
  • Genres: dementia

Al 2-minute animated short about a human zoo. It’s inspired by a poem written by Shuntarou Tanikawa.

9. Love Bites

Type: ONA (1)

Rating: 2.65/10 according to 1,250 users

Aired: 2016

Genres: horror

Plot summary: A short 2-minute animation by Nagao Takena.

8. Aki no Puzzle

  • Type: movie
  • Rating: 2.62/10 according to 772 users
  • Aired: 2003
  • Genres: romance

A short 6-minute movie that includes flashing lights with images and drawings.

Apart from causing epileptic seizures, there is not much this “movie” can offer.

7. Ai (ONA)

  • Type: ONA (1)
  • Rating: 2.56/10 according to 1,375 users
  • Aired: 2012
  • Genres: romance

We don’t know why the person looks so sad, but love seems to be the cause of their pain.

I think giving it a 1 is a no-brainer. It doesn’t have any story or even a clear premise.

6. Abunai Sisters: Koko & Mika

  • Type: OVA (10 episodes)
  • Rating: 2.52/10 according to 1,575 users
  • Aired: 2009
  • Genres: action, comedy, ecchi

This computer-animated “anime” is about two sisters who work as agents. It’s inspired by the Kano sisters.

5. Nami

*inserts disgusting fish pic*

  • Type: movie
  • Rating: 2.47/10 according to 4,580 users
  • Aired: 2000
  • Genres: dementia

In this anime, a woman is enjoying a relaxing bath until fish start appearing randomly throughout her house and interrupting her peace. I feel like I am losing IQ just writing this.

4. Hametsu no Mars

  • Type: OVA (1)
  • Rating: 2.33/10 according to 28,364 users
  • Aired: 2005
  • Genres: horror, sci-fi

The anime takes place in Tokyo that’s on the brink of destruction by strange creatures. A new suit is developed to fight back, but only people with specific DNA can wear it. The main character, Takeru Hinata, a teenage boy, must face his past and the evil creatures with the help of a special police force.

3. Kokuhaku

  • Type: OVA (1)
  • Rating: 2.32/10 according to 1,807 users
  • Aired: 2015
  • Genres: horror

The anime follows a girl who’s about to confess her feelings to someone important. But is it love or something else?

No plot, no, sound, and no character introduction… at least this atrocity lasts only 40 seconds.


2. Utsu Musume Sayuri

  • Type: OVA (1)
  • Rating: 2.07/10 according to 6,704 users
  • Aired: 2003
  • Genres: comedy, dementia

Sayuri is a young girl (more like a creepy creature) who’s been taught by her parents that it’s time to “strike”. She learns about family values and continues her family’s tradition.

I was actually scared to watch this one as it’s the weirdest anime you can find. And I was correct. It’s honestly unsettling with horrible animation and a pointless plot.

1. Tenkuu Danzai Skelter+Heaven

  • Type: OVA (1)
  • Rating: 1.91/10 according to 10,464 users
  • Aired: 2004
  • Genres: sci-fi, mecha

Otsuya has a big job: he’s gotta help a team of female pilots to take down an alien enemy. But things get messy when he starts getting close to one of the pilots. It could ruin the team and its mission.

Where to even start here… it’s so horrendous that you will have to apply some holy water to your eyes after watching it. From characters through the plot to voice acting, it’s simply a harrowing journey. Don’t even dare.
