Top 5 Anime You Will Regret Watching

That Was a Mistake…

More often than not, even the weirdest anime series has some merit to them, whether due to a narrative standpoint, unique visuals or just one likeable character. However, there are times when even the most promising of shows manage to trip over themselves, to the point where we’re all left thinking – “what was the point?” In that regard, you’d best save yourself some time by avoiding these five!

Image result for final fantasy unlimited gif

#5: “Violence Jack” OVAs (1986-90)

For those of you that loved the darkness and unrepentant tragedy presented in Devilman Crybaby, do yourself a favour and avoid these scummy renditions of Go Nagai’s apocalyptic works. It’s not that we didn’t expect a lunatic named Violence Jack to cause some carnage, it’s just we wanted it to have some level of substance. The creators of these OVAs seemed to have confused purposeful shock value for random cannibalism, oodles of rape and way too many forms of impalement. Doesn’t make for a pleasant viewing experience.

#4: “Conception” (2018)

It’s not often one gets to say this but; this would have worked so much better as a hentai. You’ve got a generic student being brought to a fantasy world that can only be saved if he knocks up various ladies. Don’t get any ideas though, there’s no actual nookie involved…just some magic mumbo jumbo, random nakedness and poof! Impregnation powers activate! What could have been a hilarious parody or something wholly naughty manages to fail in every regard. No matter what your motivation for watching this was, you will leave disappointed! 

Image result for Conception anime

#3: “Isshoni Training: Sleeping with Hinako” (2010)

Fifty minutes of watching a teenage girl sleep. That’s it. Just…watching her sleep. For fifty minutes. You might be thinking if you just keep watching for just a little bit longer, something crazy will happen. Maybe it will turn into into a philosophical discussion on the nature of voyeurism. Perhaps an alien will burst out of her head and break into a jazz routine. Nah…you’re just stuck watching an anime girl sleep for nearly an hour. Okay I think I’m done here. 

Image result for Isshoni Training: Sleeping with Hinako

#2: “Hand Shakers” (2017)

If you manage to withstand the bombardment that is this anime’s explosion of art style, you’ll find that just beneath its blinding overuse of 3D lies a story that makes so little sense it hurts. Summoning supernatural weaponry by holding hands with someone? Surpassing God by becoming the ultimate beta-male? Creepily specific fanservice? And that’s to say nothing of the dizzying camerawork, woeful use of music and incoherent plotting. This truly is the chalice of awful. At least we’ll never see its kind again. What do you mean it’s got a sequel? 

Image result for Hand Shakers

#1: “Dragon Ball Z: Bio-Broly” (1994)

Arguably the worst movie to ever bear the Dragon Ball name, save for Evolution, this flick is not only a horrible example of storytelling, but it also drags the once proud name of Broly through the mud. Or…bio-goop in this case. Is it a comedy? Is it a brutal action-fest? We don’t know and neither does the movie, since it goes back and forth way too many times to hold onto any kind of consistency. It’s a blight on DBZ’s legacy, with the only saving grace being that it now sits firmly in the shadow of Dragon Ball Super: Broly.

Top 5 Greatest Anime Reveals

Didn’t See That Coming…

Plot twists in anime often fall into two categories – either they fall flat in just how unwarranted they are, or they elevate their respective series to greater heights by enriching the narrative. In the case of these five, be it small or large, they managed to hit the sweet sport in terms of shock value.

#5: Historia
“Attack on Titan” (2013-)

While her sweet nature and overt cuteness wasn’t lost on us, Krista wasn’t exactly a standout character when compared to the likes of Mikasa, Hange or even Sasha. Then, just like that, she became the thread that held the show together, even managing to earn herself the title of best girl in a single shining moment. Turns out that her real name is Historia, next in line to become humanity’s ruler, and a pawn in the corrupt plots of the current monarchy. Honestly, without this little lady as the focal point, we wouldn’t have had that epic third season!

Image result for Historia “Attack on Titan

#4: Yoshida Shouyou = Utsuro
“Gintama” (2006-)

The man responsible for teaching Gintoki the way of the sword, Shouyou at first appeared to be a gentle soul who helped steer much of the main cast in the right direction. A beacon of light during the horror that was their childhoods. Unfortunately, this turned out to be just a phase, as Shouyou was nothing more than the split personality of the immortal killer Utsuro. This kinder persona eventually faded out of existent and was replaced by the cold and calculating genocide junkie we’ve all come to loathe. Upon his unmasking, Utsuro went from your run of the mill villain to one of the White Demon’s most personal foes.

Image result for Yoshida Shouyou = Utsuro

#3: The Pharaoh
“Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters” (2000-04)

Given how we were way too indoctrinated by the children’s card game that was being flung in our faces, we never really questioned as to why Yugi had a ghost friend he could switch bodies with on a moment’s notice, and for that matter neither did the cast. However, things began to make way too much sense when it was revealed that the being known Yami was actually the spirit of a Pharaoh who had once ruled over ancient Egypt thanks to his bitching hair style and mastery of the Three Egyptian Gods. Thanks to this little addition, the lore of the series practically exploded soon after!

#2: The Son of Gol D. Roger
“One Piece” (1999-)

Hard to believe that such a beloved character ended up getting so much development during the final phase of his life. While knowing he was a badass flame-user and adopted brother to Luffy was more than enough to earn our admiration, the grand reveal that Ace was the son of the former King of the Pirates added a whole other layer to his character. The true surrounding his birth, the resentment over his heritage, not to mention his conflicted relationships as a result of Roger’s blood running through his veins – this piece of family history gave Ace so much substance that it’s no wonder his passing hit us so hard.

Image result for ace reveal goldroger

#1: Kakashi Unmasked
“Naruto: Shippuden” (2007-17)

Yes, it has nothing to do with the plot. Yes, it’s technically just mindless filler – we don’t care. Do you know how long we’ve been waiting to see what this iconic mentor to finally show his face?! It had been teased across countless episodes, but fans finally got to see what the White Fang looked like just as the series was wrapping itself up. Not sure why he bothered hiding it when it’s obvious the man is aging like fine wine! It’s a little touch and a rather perfect second off from the shinobi whose been there since the beginning.

Top 5 Anime Dub Openings

Timeless in Their Cheesiness

Ah, the early days of anime dubbing. While nowadays the English adaptations often give the original the respect it deserves, there was a time where censorship and Americanisation turned out some real duds. However, even as we look back on them years later, we can’t help but have a soft spot for how nostalgic and surprisingly decent some of the English dubs’ original opening songs were!

#5: “Medabots” (1999-2000)

Robots shooting the crap out of each other is awesome enough, but when you add this track to it, you can bet that every kid nearly blew a gasket. Granted, we don’t exactly see Medabee ever engaging in anything as fast-pace as the opening, but then again we don’t really need too. The song is practically non-stop in its awesomeness, continually building and building until it symphonically explodes. Kind of amazing, since the majority of the time all the song is listing different types of words with “meda” in the beginning… 

#4: “Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters” (2000-04)

There are so many aspects that make this opening such a winner, to the point where you’re left wondering how a show about a children’s card game got itself a song that wasn’t only engrossing but layered. First, you’ve got the spooky intro, unfurling before like something out ancient Egypt itself…right before the remix kicks in. Thunderous percussion, an epic choir, all the elements ended coming together to create something almost colossal in scope. However, let’s be honest, we all remember this track for one thing and one thing only. Bring it on home Yugi. 

#3: “Beyblade” (2001)

You will believe a game of spinning tops is the most awe-inspiring sport to ever be conceived, especially when it’s got a song like this to back it up. There’s no filter with this one, only plenty of guitar shredding and a singer who is so into it that he’s honestly kind of scaring us. Every collision, every launch, every spin – the song hypes it all up like it’s the greatest event in the world, and we’ll be damned if it didn’t succeed. The premise may be ridiculous, but the sheer amount of fun this song manages to deliver is just too infectious to ignore. 

#2: “Shaman King” (2001-02)

Kind of ironic, isn’t it? An anime that’s infamous for having one of the most ludicrous dubs in the medium also got one of the best original openings. From the very first note, listeners are practically overwhelmed by the hard rock style, all the while the melodic vocals provide an almost mystical tone. We can’t believe we’re saying this, but the Shaman King English Dub Opening might be one of the most shounen things we have ever experienced. The pace, the style and the execution blend together so well that it pains us to think how the rest of the show was slammed through the censor machine!

#1: “Pokémon” (1997-)

The one. The only. The best. While its seemingly endless amount of sequel series still manage to snag their own original songs, as far as we’re concerned, they’re all just pale imitations of this instant nostalgia bomb. Quite possibly the only song to hit the mainstream, everyone who grew up watching Ash’s Indigo League adventures can attest to singing along to this at least once. Don’t deny it. The lyrics bury themselves into your head like a Diglett. The tune is fun, light-hearted and so whimsical that it’s impossible not to smile. Much like Ash himself, this track is somewhat timeless.

Top 5 Darkest Anime Endings

No Happily Ever Afters Here

Turns out that in the world of animation, nobody is safe. Even if the animation is delightful, even if the cast deserve to get their happy endings, these five examples prove it can all be taken away in the next scene. Sometimes to unbelievably upsetting degrees.

Image result for school days endings

#5: “Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School” (2016)

Considering the Despair Arc is practically its own anime, it’s ending is more than legible for consideration…especially since it results in the entire cast being so overwhelmed with grief over the death of their friend that they get turned into Junko’s despairing servants. Once again caught in the Ultimate Despairs antics, we’re greeted to the sight of Chisa and company succumb to their own anguish and Junko’s brainwashing after they witness Chiaki meet her end in a saw-esque dungeon. Yep, that’ll put a damper on your day all right.

#4: “Berserk” (1997-98)

Damn it Griffith. Look, we feel bad that you spent the last year getting tortured until you got reduced to a mute cripple, but did you really need to trigger the Eclipse? After reclaiming his Behelit, the White Hawk finds himself given the choice by the God Hand to join them as an omnipotent demon…just as long as he’s willing to sacrifice his comrades in exchange. The deal proves too tempting to pass up, leading to such wonderous sights as the Band of the Hawk being slaughtered, Guts losing an arm and eye, and Casca being violated by a reborn Griffith. 

Related image

#3: “Devilman Crybaby” (2018)

Considering the latter half of the series chronicled humanity’s downfall into a self-destruction mob willing to butcher each other over the slightest issue, there was never any real chance the show was going to end on a happy note. Pretty sure all the happiness died out when Miki was decapitated and flung around like a flag. Of course, Go Nagai being Go Nagai, he managed to push things just a step further by having the world literally end while Satan cradles the legless body of Akira after he crushed him in their final battle. Can see why God wanted to nuke the planet. 

Image result for Devilman Crybaby end

#2: “The End of Evangelion” (1997)

Out of all the numerous times the world went to crap, nothing tops the one where our boy Shinji was left stranded in an orange hellscape, inexplicably strangling the girl he liked, while half of Rei’s giant decapitated head smiled at them in the distance. This was not what we thought the Third Impact would look like. Not that it’s weirder than Shinji being trapped in his own mind being told congratulations over and over and over again, we just didn’t expect the end of all humanity to be such a mindfuck.

Related image

#1: “The Ideon: Be Invoked” (1982)

Apparently, someone thought that the original ending to Space Runaway Ideon wasn’t dark enough, so they introduced this feature flick to try and cram in as much distress and death as possible. Don’t think you’re in for a mecha-filled fun time, since everyone aboard the Solo Ship ends up getting axed off in a final firefight. If they don’t lose their heads from the laser blasts, they’re catapulted off into the vacuum of space when the ship ends up getting torn apart. And if that wasn’t enough they decide to go one step further, and destroy the entire universe, wiping out everyone and everything in the process. Lovely.

Top 5 Worst Things Sasuke Has Done

Once a Bad Boy…

Arguably one of the most divisive characters in the entire series, Sasuke Uchiha has made the transition from traumatised youth to vengeful student to wanted criminal and back around to edgy good guy all within one lifetime. Whether you feel his actions and ultimate redemption were justified, it can’t be denied that Sasuke accumulated quite a laundry list of dark deeds, with these five standing out as the most shocking.

Image result for sasuke kills karin gif

#5: Tried to Kill Sakura

After finding Sasuke shortly after he stabs Karin, Sakura’s intent is to kill the young man she (for some reason) loves, to spare Naruto and everyone else the pain. Sasuke is naturally suspicious of her offer to join him and, after demanding she kill Karin to prove her loyalty, then follows it up by trying to murder her from behind when she hesitates. It’s only the timely intervention of Kakashi that saves Sakura’s life, and Sasuke even makes an attempt on his former teacher’s life to boot! I wonder if Sakura ever fondly looks back and remembers that time her husband tried to murder her.

Image result for sasuke tries to kill sakura

#4: Plotting the Destruction of the Leaf Village (And Mass Murder)

After Tobi reveals to Sasuke that his brother Itachi massacred their clan to avert a civil war and at the behest of Konoha’s elders, Sasuke is naturally upset. Rather than verify this information for himself, Sasuke trusts a stranger and almost immediately swears vengeance on not only those directly responsible, but the entire Leaf Village. Not only is this exactly the kind of thing Itachi sacrificed everything to stop, but it’s also Sasuke planning to commit mass murder against the inhabitants of his home village! Yeah, yeah, you can cite his “curse of hatred,” his painful experiences, whatever – this is not moral behavior.

Image result for sasuke destroy the leaf

#3: Neglects His Daughter

Just like his neglect of his wife, Sasuke also neglects his daughter, Sarada. The sullen shinobi is absent from her life on mostly self-imposed missions so much so that she has few memories of him. And when they do finally reunite, Sasuke’s first course of action is to almost murder her, all because he doesn’t recognize her! But really, Sarada shouldn’t take it personally! Aside from his own parents, is there anyone close to Sasuke that he hasn’t attempted to kill?

Image result for sasuke and sarada

#2: Became a Rogue Ninja and Joined the Village’s Worst Enemy

Sasuke begins the series consumed with hatred for his brother Itachi. Sasuke’s desperation to become stronger leads him to accept an offer of training from Orochimaru, a man who’s already invaded Konoha, gave Sasuke a cursed seal, and was responsible for the Third Hokage’s death. Sasuke betraying his friends and the village is hardly surprising to us now, given everything he’s done since and his general self-centeredness, but back when it first happened, it was a huge deal. His betrayal ended up endangering his classmates who tried to retrieve him and led to many of the headaches and heartbreaks that followed.

#1: His Warped Plot to Change the Shinobi World

Upon saving the world from Kaguya, whose plot led almost everyone to be put into an endless sleep, Sasuke announces his intention to murder the five Kage in their sleep, as well as Naruto and the other Tailed Beasts; blaming them for the state of the world, instead of the villains they just fought a war to defeat. He then plans to shoulder the world’s hatred on himself by becoming the most powerful, hated enemy of everyone; essentially imitating what his brother did to him on a global scale. Because Sasuke turned out so well from that traumatic experience, why wouldn’t he want to inflict the same thing on the whole planet? What a hero!

Top 5 Anime Girls With The Sexiest Voices

Get Ready for Audio Ecstasy

It’s a question as old as time; what makes a great waifu? Well, aside from an engaging personality, ability to stand out among the rest of the anime rabble and steal the hearts of fans everywhere, there’s also the case of the voice actor’s amping up the appeal. In this case, the original Japanese performances of these ladies went down so well that you shouldn’t be surprised if you get hot under the collar while listening!

Image result for Rias gif

#5: Celty Sturluson
“Durarara!!” (2010; 2015-16)

For someone missing their head, this lovely lass sure knows how sweet talk! While she looks like your run of the mill leather-clad biker gal with an admittedly adorable helmet, in truth Celty is an Irish fairy in search of her missing cranium. It says a lot when a character manages to become so desirable even when lacking a head. Miyuki Sawashiro takes what’s admittedly a crazy fantasy being and turns her into a confident, bubbly and endearing lady. Who needs a head when Celty can lull you with such honeyed words?

Image result for Celty Sturluson “Durarara

#4: Shura Kirigakure
“Blue Exorcist” series (2011-17)

Talk about being hot for teacher. While her aversion for traditional clothing certainly often leaves her fellow Exorcists blushing up a storm, it’s Rina Satou’s saucy performance that pushes fans over the edge. With her work hard, play harder attitude, Shura certainly knew how to leave Rin and the rest red in the face, though it’s hard to tell if it’s from her endless flirting or her habit of incinerating everything around her with her raw power. All we can say is where do we sign up for private tutoring? 

Image result for Shura Kirigakure “Blue Exorcist

#3: Yumeko Jabami
“Kakegurui” (2017; 2019)

Yes, she is totally cuckoo for gambling, to the point where she almost always ends up losing herself in the thrill of it all and starts screaming like a banshee. And yet it still does absolutely nothing to diminish just how appealing Yumeko’s voice truly is. Be it her insane rambles or her playful persona, Saori Hayami brings a level of sensuality to Yumeko that makes even her most innocent of moments come across as irrefutably erotic. Of course, if that’s too much for you to handle, you may want to leave the room when she starts acting like a cat. 

Image result for Yumeko Jabami

#2: Rize Kamishiro
“Tokyo Ghoul” series (2014-18)

While Kaneki will most certainly never forget the likes of this tempting Ghoul, considering she did take a bite out of his neck on their first date, Rize also left quite an impact on us as well. Not a horrific, bloody, cannibalistic impact, but rather one that had us deeply contemplating whether or not we would go out with her on a second date, even at the risk of getting eaten alive. That’s the power of Kana Hanazawa’s voice, making you question your own safety just for that chance of hearing more of that Rize goodness.

#1: Hitagi Senjougahara
“Monogatari” series (2009-)

The sheer force of Chiwa Saito’s performance is so intense that even the show itself had to reference just how good she was. That pretty much says all you need to know about this fiery damsel. As the supposed one true love of Araragi, every word Senjougahara speaks is practically dripping with enticement. Even if she’s being sarcastic as hell, possessed by an oddity or even threatening Araragi’s very life, not even the likes of Kiss-Shot could ever hope of undoing just how alluring this weightless wonder really is.

Top 5 Anime That Caused Outrage

The Otaku-Rage is Strong With This One

While it is fair to say that the anime community has a higher threshold as far as controversial topics are concerned, the medium has still faced its fair share of fanboy frenzy, with these five anime managing to significantly stir the pot. Some of the after-effects of these are still being felt!

#5: “Death Note” (2006-07)

Given that it’s a series whose protagonist is a genius supernatural serial killer, “Death Note” was bound to attract some controversy. Whoever’s name is written in the eponymous notebook with their face in mind will die of a heart attack. The premise has inspired a number of copycats who have written down names in their very own Death Note, most of which have come from students. The idea that media can influence negative or violent behaviors in those that view it has been a hotly debated topic, and “Death Note” happens to be one of the most prominent anime examples for some.

#4: “Neon Genesis Evangelion” (1995-96)

A highly influential mecha anime series, whether you think all of its symbolism was deep and meaningful or pretentious dreck, “Neon Genesis Evangelion” concluded its polarizing original run with an even more divisive finale. After their animation budget ran out, the production team delivered two surreal episodes that were so bizarre and difficult to understand for some that the creators received death threats and even had their animation studio vandalized. Studio Gainax would later “fix” the conclusion with “End of Evangelion.”

#3: “Sword Art Online: Alicization” (2018-)

Arguably one of the most influential isekai anime, Sword Art Online’s third season, “Alicization” featured an especially disturbing scene where Eugeo is forced to watch as his two female friends are nearly raped. The series is no stranger to outrage, as this wasn’t the first time sexual assault was used as a plot point. This established pattern and treatment of its female characters has drawn ire from some fans, and the original novels author Reki Kawahara would later apologize for his decade old writing, stating that he will be more mindful in the future.

#2: “Pokémon” (1997-)

Given how long it’s been on the air, the “Pokémon” anime was bound to cause outrage at some point, but it actually only took 38 episodes in before it became infamous. The episode follows the gang as they digitize themselves to stop Team Rocket. An explosion onscreen caused a flashing strobe like effect, which gave at least 600 people in Japan, most of them children, seizures. The incident caused a severe backlash, and while it didn’t end the juggernaut of a franchise, it did lead to more stringent restrictions when showing flashing lights in all anime, to prevent a similar incident from happening in the future.

#1: “Goblin Slayer” (2018)

New viewers who watched “Goblin Slayer” expected a typical lighthearted fantasy adventure series, given the colorful designs and the previews leading up to its debut. However, they were shocked to find that the first episode sees the primary heroine’s party of adventurers either brutally killed, tortured, or raped. While not the first anime on our list to display sexual violence, or violence in general, “Goblin Slayer” is by far the most explicit in its depiction of it. Ultimately, the series earned a warning beforehand about its content to prevent similar distress from viewers. Heaven forbid if they watch Berserk.

Top 5 Times Cheaters Got Owned in Anime

They Never Prosper…

Whether its manipulating their way to power, besting their rivals via unfair means or just being tactless clowns, these deceivers did whatever possible in order to secure their win. Thankfully, karma swiftly followed and left them ousted and humiliated for all to see. We’re guessing they won’t be forgetting these lessons anytime soon.

#5: The Foxy Pirates
“One Piece” (1999-)

In what universe is tangoing with the Straw Hat Pirates a good idea? You only need to take one look at Zoro to know that he means business, and yet Foxy and his crew still thought they had a chance? Granted, these battles are basically comic relief, but that doesn’t excuse how this fox-faced fiend tried to cheat at every turn. He made each contest in his crew’s favour, implemented underhanded tactics, even tried to blindsight Luffy during his boxing match. They may have been wily in their ways, but nothing tops Luffy and company when it comes to overcoming the impossible.

#4: Oberon
“Sword Art Online” (2012)

Even if he does have a voice that makes angels weep, this so-called Fairy King isn’t so much a gracious ruler as he is a gamer who really needs to be put on some kind of watch-list. Willing to do anything to claim Asuna and take out Kirito, Oberon happily twisted the rules of Alfheim Online to his advantage. Considering there’s nothing this guy hates more than a fair fight, using illegal techniques like Gravity Magic in order to hold Kirito in place while he felt up Asuna is hardly a stretch. Hope he enjoyed himself, since it wouldn’t be long until he got his ass handed to him both inside and outside the gaming sphere.

#3: Boruto Uzumaki
“Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” (2017-)

Are you proud of yourself, young man? Just look at what you did! An unfortunate combination of teenage issues, swollen ego and manipulation all led to this shinobi throwing away his big day, when he was exposed for using an illegal Ninja Tool during the Chunin Exams. His excuse? “It’s your fault Dad because you never trained me! I hate you!” Hey kid, did you ever hear the one about how your Dad spend his childhood isolated by the whole village, and yet managed to stick to his guns and relied on his own strength to take him places? Didn’t see him whining about it did you! Now go to your room!

#2: Frost
“Dragon Ball Super” (2015-)

I hate to stereotype, but it seems no matter where you look in the multiverse, Frieza’s lookalikes are always clinging to the dark side. Frost might not be a genocidal maniac, but he’s hardly leaning towards lawful good. After all, when it came time for Universe 6 and 7 to bump heads, he fooled everyone into thinking he was a stand up guy…before suddenly turning the tables on his opponent with one dirty trick after the next. He might have gotten away with it to, if not for the fact there’s nothing in all of spacetime stronger than Vegeta’s hate-boner for all things Frieza.

#1: Team Masho
“Yu Yu Hakusho” (1992-95)

Even in a tournament filled with demons, these guys managed to standout as the most dishonest, underhanded, devious and assholish group you’re likely to come across. Willing to do anything to win, and backed by their slimeball manager Butajiri, their meddling almost spelled doom for Team Urameshi. With Kuwabara forced to fight while injured and Genkai and Hiei locked away from fighting, it almost looked like they would walk away the winners…but it wasn’t enough to keep Urameshi’s group of badasses down. Yep, these folks truly were the worst. Not you though Jin – you’ll always be our sweet Irish muffin.
