In some cases, the whole fandom of anime is united against a single character, making it impossible to enjoy the show.
Many characters in Japanese animation are beloved and thrilling, from shojo heroines to shonen heroes and everything in between, including popular support characters and even some sympathetic villains. For the most part It’s a little more difficult to connect with the other characters.
One prominent example is the flame hero in My Hero Academia named Endeavor, who did something bad but nearly redeemed herself by becoming a flaming hero. In contrast, the majority of anime characters are universally despised, frequently to the point of being considered punching bags by anime fans. These anime characters get a bad rap for good reason.
1. Shou Tucker Keeps Stitching His Family Together With Animals (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
There are still a lot of anime viewers that are afraid of Shou Tucker and his crimes even after Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood was released in 2009. Known as the “sewing life alchemist,” he is a state alchemist and his family will foot the bill if he gets desperate to get results.
It was a chimera that pleaded for death that won Shou his license to practice medicine. Shou created a second chimera a few years later by mating his beloved daughter Nina with his dog Alexander, terrifying Edward, Alphonse, and even Scar. Shou was killed by Scar before the trial could begin.
2. Princess Malty Melromarc Is A Shameless Schemer (The Rising Of The Shield Hero)
Melromarc’s royal dynasty is a mixed bag in this isekai land. Naofumi Iwatani’s best ally was the queen, a noble, smart, and generous woman, and her young daughter Melty was also a big assistance. The situation with the queen’s husband and eldest daughter, on the other hand, is somewhat different.
In order to exile Naofumi from the realm, the king and princess Malty worked together, and Malty used slanderous tales and charges to have Naofumi’s name permanently blacklisted. She had no remorse about it, which caused friction between her and the queen. Furthermore, sabotaging Naofumi like that undermined the Kingdom’s resistance to the Waves.
3. Danzo Shimura Is Ruthless & Brutal (Naruto)
Danzo Shimura, a Leaf ninja of the highest caliber, doesn’t look awful on paper. At all costs, they and their Root/Basis organization will serve as a humble foundation of protection for the Hidden Leaf Village. Even though Danzo has a good goal, there is more to him.
Tsunade, as Hokage, was frequently at odds with Danzo, a cold, exploitative, and pitiless man, even by ninja standards. Danzo’s actions were too severe in his attempt to effectively lock Naruto Uzumaki in the village and protect him from the Akatsuki. In the end, he was slain by Sasuke Uchiha.
4. Sakura Haruno Isn’t Popular With Fans (Naruto)
A member of Team 7, Sakura Haruno has been by Naruto’s side in good times and bad, but it hasn’t exactly won over the hearts of Naruto’s admirers. It’s hard to detest Sakura because she isn’t mean or evil, and she has some good qualities like medical ninjutsu and loyalty to her companions, unlike many other vilified anime characters.
That, however, isn’t enough for some supporters. It’s no secret that Sakura is often derided for her brattish and unpleasant demeanor, and she’s regularly made fun of for being the weakest member of Team 7. Obsession with and verbal abuse of Naruto Uzumaki are two further reasons why she is loathed.
5. Gabi Braun Killed Sasha Braus & Hates Eldian “Devils” (Attack On Titan)
As a character, Gabi Braun the warrior candidate is admirable and even a little likable, but she went too far in the eyes of fans of Attack on Titan for their liking. I can’t readily forgive her for what she did.
When Gabi slipped inside the airship and shot Sasha Braus, the entire fandom immediately rallied against her. Even more so, Gabi is seen as a despicable person because of her obstinate belief that her fellow Eldians are horrible devils who must be punished or slain.
6. Minoru Mineta Won’t Leave Girls Alone (My Hero Academia)
Slowly but surely, the newcomer hero Minoru Mineta is creating a name for himself thanks to his increasing bravery and skill in combat as well as his good grades and a few impressive feats like outmaneuvering the R-rated hero Midnight in battle. However, he’s an easy target.
It’s not uncommon for Minoru to be quite the pervert, yanking open a girl’s underwear drawer and peering inside. A well-worn anime cliché, he’ll even peep into the bathroom of a female character while she’s bathing, and he’s known for being terrified and panicked when things go wrong. For the most part, his admirers find him to be irritating.
7. Akito Sohma Verbally & Emotionally Abuses Her Family (Fruits Basket)
Despite the fact that there are legitimate explanations for Akito Sohma’s actions, she continues to be despised by anime viewers for her obnoxiousness and acute dysfunction. Akito, the “goddess” of the zodiac animals, suffers from severe challenges with both control and attachment.
As a Sohma, Akito expects absolute devotion and loyalty from her members and will lash out at anyone who defies her in any way. She punishes and terrorizes the Sohmas with verbal, emotional, and sometimes physical violence, which only serves to further isolate Kyo, Yuki, and Momiji. Even terrible than her mother, Ren, is her father.
8. Sugou Nobuyuki/Oberon Is A Sleazy Fairy King (Sword Art Online)
Asuna Yuuki and Sugou Nobuyuki were engaged in real life, and he was the CEO of RECT Inc. As a character in A Midsummer Night’s Dream’s Oberon, he was referred to as “Oberon.” Both Kirito and the SAO fandom protested to his desire to make Asuna his Titania.
Oberon possessed no redeeming characteristics, not even the ability to fight bravely or powerfully. This man was a sleazy person who treated Asuna like a disobedient pet; it was an abomination. Because of his timidity when confronting Kirito, he grew even more disgusting and was finally beaten in the game. Later, he attempted to physically harm Kirito, but was thwarted.
9. Shinji Ikari Can’t Handle His Burdens (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
Shinji Ikari, a 14-year-old boy, is under a lot of pressure from his superiors. However, despite the fact that most individuals his age would respond adversely to Shinji’s position, the anime fans still gives Shinji the thumbs-down. He hasn’t won over any of the people he’s met.
A common complaint about Shinji is how weak his character’s character arc is because he lacks both guts and resolve, and he constantly whines about everything under the sun. His tsundere ally Asuka Langley once turned on him while he was unconscious, which shocked practically every fan.
10. Orihime Inoue Stole Ichigo From Rukia (Bleach)
Orihime Inoue isn’t the most loathed character in anime, but she still has a fair number of haters, particularly for a few significant reasons. The majority of the Bleach characters found her to be an endearing and devoted buddy who possessed a great amount of bravery.
It’s a common belief among Bleach fans that the manga’s final chapter showed that Orihime had claimed Ichigo for herself. As a result, many fans were upset. As a side note, Orihime is frequently teased for crying “Ichigo!” or “Kurosaki-kun!” out of fear during combat scenes too many times.
