If you watch a ridiculous amount of anime, you know that there is a lot about anime that is worthy of making fun of. From ridiculous cliches to bizarre anime logic, the funny side of anime is perfectly represented in the anime parody series that we're ranking on this list. These anime perfectly parody other anime, whether it's Genos from One Punch Man, representing the cliche protagonist with a sad backstory, to shows like Gintama, that openly reference existing anime like Naruto and One Piece. Speaking of One Punch Man, can you believe how popular an anime that makes fun of other anime has gotten? Who would have thought that an anime parody would end up becoming one of the best most beloved anime of all time? Vote up your favorite anime parodies below, and downvote any if you don't like them.
