30 Hilarious Anime Scenes That Make Absolutely No Sense Without Context

Updated June 14, 2019 52.4k votes 6.9k voters 176.1k views30 items

One of the funniest parts of anime is how certain scenes or quotes make absolutely no sense without context. Would you really know why a bald man was handing a crab a firearm without context? We've collected the funniest no-context anime screenshots that are truly bizarre (even regardless of knowing the context).

Some series like Gintama could probably take up this whole list, as there is always weird stuff going on in the series. The English dub of Ghost Stories is practically a given, as the dialogue was purposefully written to basically make no sense. Future Diary isn't a particularly funny show, but the entry from that series below will definitely make you laugh.

Vote up the no-context anime quotes that made you laugh, or simply show some love to the ones that you believe require the most context to understand.
