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.
