The 25 Most Ridiculous Anime Titles In History

Updated November 12, 2020 14.8k votes 2.5k voters 108.8k views25 items

Whether it's because of poor translations or ideas that were wild to begin with, some anime have some seriously strange titles. A few of these titles are short but strange, like Mangirl! - but it's actually way more common for them to be outlandishly long. In fact, some of these shows boast the longest anime names ever. Because it's only a two minute PV, If I don't successfully pick up 420 girls, I am going to die in a lot of different ways takes almost as long to read as the whole show does to watch. 

Funny anime names don't necessarily equate to an equally ridiculous anime. Actually, some of these shows - Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai being a great example - are worth a watch. But some of these shows are just as silly as their names are. 

Vote up the strange anime titles that make you laugh the hardest, and vote down the ones that just make you shrug.

    This OVA is exactly what it says on the tin - girls showing off their undergarments while looking thoroughly disgusted by the person who requested it. Subtley, what's that?

    Despite having what is simultaneously the best and worst title in anime history, this "anime" is actually just a two-minute promotional video for a light novel. Sorry for introducing you to the most unfair thing ever, but there has been no news about this wild-sounding anime since 2013.

    Well, do you?? Masato does love his mother, but he's embarrassed by her too. That's because the two of them have been dragged into a virtual world where their gaming skills are put to the test - and she's a whole heck of a lot more talented at gaming than he is!

    Story in Which I Was Kidnapped by a Young Lady's School to be a "Sample of the Common People"

    Considering how weird this show's premise is, a grammatically correct title is the last thing on anyone's mind. It's about a teenaged boy who is kidnapped by an all-girls school to help the sheltered students prepare to enter regular society. In order to avoid being literally castrated by the school administration, he has to pretend to be gay.
