Fans of anime have their favorite characters as well as the characters they love to hate. You’ll be shocked to hear that most anime fans despise characters not for what they did but by what they neglected to do.
In these instances, the characters had superpowers that fans expected them to make full use of, even though this meant that the individual characters would be risking their lives.
Fans also dislike characters that take advantage of their target’s vulnerability or use their powers to punish victims who have done no wrong. Hate can be a strong term, but it certainly applies to the anime characters in this list.
Sōsuke Aizen (Bleach)
Sosuke Aizen is a charming villain, so how can anyone dislike him? Well, he’s both cold-hearted and pleasant. You can look back to when he wore glasses and walked around like a good samaritan .
That was a lie! He is one of the series’ most evil villains. He is strong but he does not do the dirty work himself. He tries to control and mislead others in carrying out his bidding.
He could have been a genuinely fantastic villain. Instead, he chose to sit back, hold back his powers and let others do the evil deeds most of the time.
When one hears Naraku’s name, a bafflingly unexplained rage materializes from inside. This is because Naraku’s a complete coward!
Throughout the series, he’ll just run around and hide behind barriers of all kinds. It is unfortunate a character with so much potential power is such a wimp.
He is good at deceiving people as well as breaking relationships. You would never want to mess with Naraku.
He will turn others up against you and then disappear but watch you suffer from the shadows. He ‘s probably one of the nastiest villains out there.
Shou Tucker (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
In the anime “Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood,” Shou is a minor but despised character. Yet he uses his intellect to do something which utterly isolates him from his fans.
He transforms his wife into a chimera, and then leaves her in that condition without a way for her to return to her human form for the rest of her life. What’s even more troubling is that his wife did nothing to earn a punishment such as that.
He also ended up turning his daughter and dog into chimeras as if that wasn’t enough, then merged them into one, before abandoning them in that state again.
Makoto Itou (School Days)
Makoto Itou of “School Days” may be deemed among the worst when it comes to selfish and immoral characters.
He spent considerable time taking on more than necessary, lying about everything to defend himself, and cheating as often as possible.
He is one of the characters that led to the horrible ending seen at the end of “School Days.” His womanizing attitude caused distress to so many people, but he didn’t care for the feelings of those whose relationships he wrecked.
Nina Einstein (Code Geass)
The entire Code Geass fan base can agree that Nina Einstein is a horrible character. Not only does Nina hold discriminatory attitudes against the “Elevens,” or Japanese citizens, but she becomes consumed with Princess Euphemia.
While there’s nothing wrong with impressing a queen, Nina takes it way too far – she loves Euphemia so much that she invents a lethal weapon for her sake.
If there are going to be loved anime characters, there also have to be hated ones. The hatred for the above characters ranges in reason from their inability to make decisions to the misery they have caused.
