Uncensored anime shows aren’t necessarily rare, but it can be depending on the type of anime we’re talking about.
The types of anime that have been banned or censored over the years are:
And any genres relating to, or connected to the ones I’ve already mentioned (like fantasy).
Even though that can change based on which country the anime airs in, as a general rule the anime in this post have avoided censorship. Either because it wasn’t possible, companies refused to air it, or otherwise.
Let’s talk about it!
1. Hajimete No Gal
Let’s start off by saying this: Hajimete No Galisn’t the best
The comedy, the jokes, the fan service, and the ethics have no bounds.
An example of this is one character who’s perversion is taken to extremes, making you do a double take or even a triple take.
Despite these elements in this typical Harem/Ecchi style of anime, it received no censorship or anything of the sort…. As a general rule.
Then again, it wasn’t the most popular anime and isn’t exactly a franchise either.

Haganai: I Don’t Have Many Friends is an anime with a lot going on. It’s a school anime that tackles loneliness and not having any friends.
The main characters start “the neighbours club” to tackle this issue and make more friends with a safe space.
The anime also is Ecchi and doesn’t shy away from fan service, booty shots, or other elements that censorship tends to target.
It also tackles bullying and manages to merge these themes without collapsing on itself (comedy as well).
It’s considered underrated by many.
3. Mirai Nikki
Mirai Nikki is an anime with the most popular Yandere of all time: Yuno Gasai. She’s a teenager with a messed up childhood involving abuse and an unhealthy home environment.
This is the catalyst for her behaviour in the anime, the violence, the lengths she’s willing to go to, and even the

Companies like Funimation got their hands on it, but couldn’t find ways to censor it. So they ditched it all together.
As a result, the anime mostly has one version and hasn’t been changed drastically.

It’s a work of art, and hilarious as well.
The anime doesn’t discriminate. Men, women, they both get the same treatment and it actually enhances the anime’s overall quality and plot style.
6. Seitokai Yakuindomo
Seitokai Yakuindomo is the type of anime that “censors” certain scenes deliberately, to make a moment more comedic or effective. So it’s not that type of censorship.
The anime is about the student council members in a school that’s gone from an all-girls to also having boys.
Shino Amakusa and Shichijou aria are the “trolls” of this anime. Sarcastically twisting words to make them seem erotic, sexual, or inappropriate.
The fact that it doesn’t rely or even need fan service to make a point is an art in itself. It’s underrated in the

8. Peach Boy Riverside
Peach Boy Riverside is an anime that aired July 2021. It’s actually made by the same author as Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid!
In this world, there are high level ogres and ogres of all kinds. Tree ogres, human-looking ogres with horns, and more.
2 characters with peach powers (the main characters) rival their strength, and the story follows Sally’s journey to unite them to stop the fights between them.
The anime doesn’t hold anything back with its violence, savage fights, action or otherwise. In fact, the fights are well done visually, making it an entertaining
This anime is about the
The fan service speaks for itself. When does
In a way, it’s a borderline
The action itself was never made to be violent or brutal, but more importantly: nothing is edited or cut out so it’s legit.
10. Sankarea: Undying Love
Sankarea: Undying Love is an
Chihiro, one of the MC’S, is obsessed with zombies. It’s to the point where he wants a zombie girlfriend and he won’t have it any other way.
He gets his wish but by accident. And in the process, he ends up reviving his dead cat which becomes a zombie.
For a short series though it’s well put together, just a little on the short side.
Claymore is another anime that flies under the radar a bit these days. But it is still recognized and a popular anime no doubt.
Made by Madhouse studios, Claymore is a term used for female fighters who are half human, half demon. They’re paid for their work by a mysterious organization.
That work involves slaying full blooded demons called Yoma.
The underbelly of this anime is cruel and depressing. The action, at times, results in depressing moments for the main characters.
The violence, the cruelty, you can expect all of it, even the ugly parts of it to be there without any sort of censorship.
This is an anime with
Monogatari gets away with things most anime wouldn’t dare to include. It’s an oddball of a series, but that’s not surprising.
Why? The studio is SHAFT. They’re known for their weird anime shows. Weird, but with the kind of high quality comparable shows can’t vouch for.
The plot is diverse, it changes a lot depending on the character of focus, and the visuals look stunning from start to finish.
The famous toothbrush scene made me CRINGE harder than anything I’ve seen in an anime, but it’s an example of what I meant when I implied the anime is daring.
13. Redo Of Healer
Redo Of Healer is about revenge at the highest level, and in the darkest way you can imagine.
After being abused, tortured, r*ped and manipulated for years, Keyaru develops a resistance to the drugs he’s forced to take. And eventually resets time.
His purpose is to redo everything and get revenge against his oppressor who happens to be a woman who seems innocent.
The anime did have a censored version, but there was an
In the end they’re both “almost” the same, and are equally as blunt. Whether it be action, violence, or sex scenes.

It’s perfect for fans looking for this type of material.
15. World’s End Harem
World’s End Harem is another unfiltered, raw, and uncut anime for 2021 that’s
Mankind is dying out. Most men have been wiped out by a virus. Men are given the task of getting women PREGNANT to repopulate.
The mission is to get the numbers back up at any cost.
A conveniently sounding plot it might seem, but the anime isn’t shy about it or trying to hide it.
It might not win any awards in 2021 for ratings, reviews, or otherwise, but the anime is spot on for what it serves and for who wants to be served by it.
Shimoneta, an anime by J.C Staff, might just be their most unfiltered anime they’ve ever released.
The English title is A Boring World Where The Concept Of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist.
In a society where things are so politically correct that you can’t make dirty jokes, or even talk about sex, what do you do?
It’s to the point where citizens have a clasp over their neck that “rings” if a person dares to say anything considered unclean. In which case the SJW’s literally arrest you and throw you in jail.
Ayame Kajou isn’t having any of this BS. She’s on a mission to change it with the help of Tanukichi Okuma, and the dialogue is raw as F.
Akame Ga Kill
This anime is about a revolutionary army (and assassins) who are rebelling against government corruption. Their goal is to destroy it in order to rebuild a better society.
It’s not like they’re being dramatic either. The government beheads its citizens in public for the smallest thing like spilling milk out in public.
People are taxed up to their eyeballs and have nothing of what you could call a “life”. That’s why resentment is at an all time high.
Akame Ga Kill is a
Plot armor? None of that over here.
Anime characters who are saved by the power of friendship or some other cliche? None of that over here.

18. God Eater
God Eater is an anime adapted from video
The anime’s plot is about a type of monster called Aragami. A unit of fighters who used weapons called “God Eaters” fight agianst the Aragami to protect what’s left of society.
The weapons themselves are made out of the Aragami.
The say this anime is horrific is an understatement. It’s outright evil with its violence in some scenes, and it looks so realistic that it only adds to the brutality.
Few anime can claim to look this good visually, or to have CGI that doesn’t make your eyes bleed at the sight of it.
