For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term “Abridged”, it simply means that the usual length of an episode of a TV show, a movie, or a book, is not as long as its original length. When it comes to anime however, a mid-sized percentage of our favorite titles become abridged by hardcore fans!
Whenever you think of an anime abridged series the first thing that comes to mind, is the person (or team) who created it. Team Four Star is one of the most popular abridged anime creative teams behind the Dragon Ball Z Abridged series. There are so many others out there that will have us LOL-ing for days, but for now, here’s our Top 5 abridged anime titles…
WARNING: NONE OF THESE TITLES ARE SAFE FOR WORK! (No Kids Allowed!)
Also, please support the official release of all these titles. Thank you! 🙂
Number 5: Danganronpa Abridged Thing! (Faulerro)
A personal favorite of Yours Truly! All of the Ultimate Students have been given hilariously funny titles; like Mondo Oowada’s “SHSL Needless Violence” or even Aoi Asahina’s “SHSL Donut Nut”, all of which are based on the character’s original titles. Although the series is six episodes long (out of the original thirteen), there are tons of extras to watch and check out! 🙂
Number 4: Hellsing Ultimate Abridged! (Team Four Star)
All the bloody action-packed violence you saw in the original series, Team Four Star has brought to you in the abridged version. If you’re familiar with the original plot of the series, then check out the comedic twist that TFS has to offer!
Number 3: Akame ga Kill Abridged! (Grimmjack69 & BuddyVA)
Night Raid just got a lot more interesting. If you’re looking for a creative spin on the original plot (i.e. Abridged Akame’s dry-sense of humor), then you’re gonna wanna check out this abridged series for yourselves!
Number 2: How to be an Adventurer (DanMachi: TAS) (YaroShien)
Is it wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon? Is it wrong that those girls wanna take a peek at YOUR ‘dungeon’? Then check out this abridged anime series featuring everyone’s favorite goddess, Hestia! 🙂
Number 1: Dragon Ball Z Abridged! (Team Four Star)
Out of all of the abridged anime series, this one has been the most successful and longest running! This abridged series is one of Team Four Stars greatest hits, and plays off the main story arcs of Goku and his friends. With over nine or so movies, over fifty episodes and various abridged shorts under their belt, TFS is not showing any signs of slowing down or stopping any time soon!
So there you have it anime fans! Make sure that you support the official release of all of the titles that we’ve listed here on this filler post. Until next time! 😉
