Worst Anime of the Decade (That I Still Finished)

I don’t think I’m gonna be able to put these ones in any kind of order (except #1, I know that one). A lot of these are terrible in very different ways, and some I barely remember anything about except how reprehensible they were.

Entries will be shorter as well because there’s only so many words you can use to say something is boring or makes no sense, which applies to almost everything here.

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin

A-1, 2014

This was just nonsense

Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai

J.C Staff, 2015

You’re looking for Seitokai Yakuindomo, the show with cringe “jokes” that at least has some endearing characters.

Dimension W

3Hz, 2016



Diomedia, 2016

This was so wacky that it was actually excellent for a few episodes, then it slid into backstory flashbacks and turned to shit.

Guilty Crown

Production I.G, 2011

People would’ve liked Code Geass if only the protagonist whined a lot more and did nothing. Good attempt Pro I.G I’m sure someone will get there someday.


MAPPA, 2017

Interesting concept but this show had zero restraint and no tact.

Taboo Tattoo

J.C Staff, 2016

Just kidding this one ruled


TROYCA, 2014

This is one of the most famous trainwrecks of the decade so I probably don’t have to explain it.

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai

AIC, 2011

Both seasons. Ugly and not a single likable character. No ending. I watched it. I watched it all.

One Punch Man 2

J.C Staff, 2019

One of the harder drop-offs in quality I’ve seen. I’m not huge into the writing of this series so losing the visual element pretty much meant losing the whole thing.

Koi to Uso

Liden Films, 2017

Everything except my seething anger is gone from my brain here, sorry. Oh I do remember that people like the opening, which sucks actually.

Punch Line

MAPPA, 2015

This is one of the few shows on here that I would be okay describing as a “scam”. The trailer made it look like a TTGL successor or something and then the whole show takes place in one apartment building and it’s all just talking.

Gokukoku no Brynhildr

Arms, 2014

Congrats Okamoto, you did it again.

Haiyore! Nyaruko-san

Xebec, 2012

Not funny, didn’t laugh.

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha

Arms, 2013


Oniichan dakedo Ai sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne!

Silver Link, 2012

Fucking ugly!!!

Accel World

Sunrise, 2012

Every character in this was so contemptible. 24 episodes, down the hatch. Gulp gulp gulp.


Diomedia, 2017

Truck-kun was robbed.

1. Wake Up, Girls!

Ordet, 2014

Yamamoto! Go fuck yourself dude – by the end of this show I was begging you to just take it out behind the shed and animate it with CG. Even if these characters didn’t have some of the most offensive sameface I’ve ever seen their personalities were even worse.

I do have to admire the balls on a guy who completely fails at copping Ghibli’s style, only to try and enter the fully saturated marketplace of idol anime. If Yamakan keeps one-upping himself maybe he can go double bankrupt in the 2020s.
