So, I guess (I'm not 100% sure) that it all started with LittleKuriboh abridging Yugioh duel monsters.

And then everyone started abridging every single anime out there.

Anyways, while most are badly made, some are somewhat entertaining....somewhat.

But what do you guys think?

I like it when they make fun of the shows I dislike. Yugioh is one of them, I love that abridged series.

I love them if they are professionally done. My favourite is TFS abridged.

Actually, futa can be made less gay than straight porn. You see, straight porn has one guy and one girl. Because you're fapping to something with one guy in it, that's 50% gay. If you watch futa fuck a girl, that's one girl and a half girl, thus only 25% gay. You could make it 0% gay with two girls but the problem is, that makes them lesbian, which wraps back to being 100% gay.

The best ones can bring out the flaws/stupidity of "x anime" and capitalize it with comedy.
Gigguk's Eva series and TeamFourStar being such examples.

Just this once, I'll fulfill whatever your wish is.

90% of them are crap, the other 10% are godly
sexual incest in nisomonogatari - no one bats an eye
romance incest in SAO - everyone loses their minds

Wasn't there a thread on this already? I forget.

My enjoyment of abridged series varies wildly, more so than the actual shows. I'd love it if there are more good abridged series.

If done well, they're pretty funny. FoulFangedFiend's Monster abridged series is hilarious and still on going.

The thing I've always noticed is that LittleKuriboh was making fun of the dub of yugioh most of all.

And the jokes came very natural.

However, most people are making fun of the actual series (Which IMO is harder to do).

I think they are ok, though I haven't watched much. I saw some of None Piece yesterday, it was pretty entertaining.

Some abridged series have better acting than the actual English dub. Take Future Diary, for example. Dat Yuno Gasai, man.

Well, I can't say for sure because Funimation only has their trailer to go off of.

I've only watched the Yugioh Abridged series and the DBZ abridged that Team Four Star does. Both imo are hilarious.

Is it just me though, or is Little Kuriboh in a LOT of these? A friend of mine was talking about the Sailor Moon abridged series, and she said Little Kuriboh helped make it funny.

Mirai Nikki abridged, gotta love it man. Watched a few SAO episodes abridged too, but I got bored after a while.

Since he's the most famous person to do an abridged series (and IMO the best one) I hear that other people are constantly asking him to do some voices for their own series.

The problem I see is that LK made an abridged series of an anime that was VERY easy to make fun off.

That doesn't mean every anime will be just as easy.

And like I said, the majority of his jokes are aimed at the way Yugioh was dubbed, so the jokes are easier to make.

like the way "Joey" takes with a Brooklyn accent, or the way 4kids took out the violence and sexual aspects from the original yugioh.

Those are easy things to make fun off.

The majority of abridged anime series I've seen since then fail horribly, because they have no idea what to make fun off, or eventually they run out of jokes.

Yugioh, DBZ, Naruto, and Sailor Moon have been the best abridged series IMO....

That's actually the only abridged series I've ever seen and I thought the humor was pretty average, though I can understand why someone might like it, since the jokes in it are very simple...

If they're good I'll watch them. Besides LK's Yugioh and TFS' DBZ some other ones I like are 1kidsentertainment's Pokemon, TheWINChestersInc's Supernatural, and Team Dattebayo's Death Note abridged back when they still used to do it.

Oh and I guess some of the individual series that the members from TFS do.

It's mostly a bunch of coattail-riding. A big part of the humor of YGO Abridged is the absurdity of the source material. Now that abridged series are a "thing," that element kinda got lost and you get a lot of "...my hair is ridiculous! Look at it!..." lines delivered with bad pubescent voice acting.

DBZ Abridged or GTFO in my opinion. Yu-Gi-Oh's Abridged wasn't too bad... but I still prefer DBZ's version.

I actually believe DBZ Abridged should get a MAL page. I'M SRS

most of them are funny for a couple of episodes and then they reuse all the same jokes over and over and over... but if done well, they turn out amazing!

I personally like YGOTAS the best and haven't really found an enjoyable one since then

Team Four Star's DBZ abridged is sometimes more enjoyable than DBZ itself LOL

As a few people said, if they're well made or professionally made and do their job to make me laugh, I love them. Some of them are a hit and miss, and some of them are just...dreadful e___e

I adore Yu-Gi-Oh/DBZ abridged. Naruto is alright. The few others that I have seen I dropped on the first episode.

They're usually hilarious, Mirai Nikki 's abridged series is what made me watch Mirai Nikki in the first place. But others are unwatch-ably bad.

My favorites:

The only 2 I'v really enjoyed are Berserk and Gantz abridged

The only abridged series I watch are shows done by TFS. With DBZA being my favorite, I think its actually better than the original series, it cuts the filler and replaces the cliche and lame dialogue with funny laugh a minute lines.
