Top 10 Most Embarrassing Scenes in Anime

There are some things you just can’t recover from. Welcome to where today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 most embarrassing scenes in anime.

For this list, we’ll be looking at scenes that were utterly humiliating to the characters involved so be prepared to brace yourself for some cringe.

#10: The Full Body Inspection

“Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic” (2012-13)

After a long and strenuous battle, Alibaba laments on his weakness in your typical angsty-shounen-hero kind of way. He soon begins examining his battle scars only to find out that he’s in worse shape than he originally thought – leaving no part unexamined. Unfortunately for her, poor Morgiana stumbles into the room and sees that which cannot be unseen. Honestly man, just lock the door like the rest of us.

#9: The Online Confession

“And you thought there is never a girl online?" (2016)

We’ve all been there. Falling in love with someone you met on an MMORPG. But if history has taught us anything, it’s that you should never trust strangers. After building up his courage, Hideaki Nishimura finally confesses his feelings and proposes to his party member. Routine stuff. Problem is she was...less than honest about her true self. The poor guy doesn’t take it too well. It’s ok, Hideaki... it happens to the best of us.

#8: The End of Sonic’s Lineage

“One-Punch Man” (2015)

Every protagonist has his rival, but it honestly doesn’t seem like Saitama needs one given how overpowered he is. This doesn’t stop the ill-intentioned Ninja, Sonic, as time and time again he tries to prove his fighting prowess to our hero. In this particular scuffle, Speed o’ sound demonstrates just how fast he can move and tries to zero in for a finishing blow – only to be met with a fist to the clackers. No amount of apologies is gonna cut it this time, Saitama.

#7: The Magnetic Attraction

“JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders” (2014-15)

The JoBros came across a bunch of different enemies with weird and wacky abilities on their travels – and this one was no exception. Mariah uses her stand, “Bastet” to manipulate magnetic flows causing Avdol and Joseph Joestar fight for their lives from things such as trains, cutlery and escalators. But worst of all she managed to obliterated the two burly men’s pride when she forced them into compromising positions inpublic. You managed to get past the whole pillarman thing, Joseph, but chances are you wont forget this anytime soon.

#6: The Surprising Talent of Vegeta

“Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods” (2013)

Vegeta has always been a man of pride, so it’s going to take something pretty drastic to make him utterly embarrass himself. In an attempt to satiate the rising tension between the Z Fighters and the planet destroyer, Beerus, Vegeta reveals his best-kept secret – his musical talent. It’s a valiant effort, but ultimately only delays the inevitable brawl – so maybe he outta keep to the fist throwing and ki blasting next time. At least he can take refuge in the fact that his wife is also no stranger to embarrassment.

#5: The Swimming Trial

“Golden Boy” (1995-96)

Being a traveling odd-jobs extraordinaire, Kintarou has made a ton of sacrifices in order to work alongside some beautiful ladies. He goes to any lengths to prove he’s got the chops and in this case he demonstrates his unparalleled swimming abilities. Oh…oh boy. As you’d expect, this stellar display lands him a job alongside the sexy, swimming sensation – and of course, he steals her heart along the way. Ata boy, Kintarou!

#4: The Literary Girl

“Daily Lives of High School Boys” (2012)

Oh if only life could be like a romance novel. Poor Yassan wants nothing more than that and opportunity strikes when she crosses paths with a young man looking out wistfully by the riverbank.
Unfortunately for her, Hidenori is by no means the man of her dreams and his façade quickly puts him into an increasingly more embarrassing position. If that wasn’t bad enough, he has to keep a straight face as she attempts to live out her fantasies but fails miserably. Not even his buddies can bail him out of this one.

#3: The Case of Melissophobia

“Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto” (2016)

When you’re the best at literally everything you do, chances are you’re going to have people trying to slip you up along the way. Be it delinquents, popular girls or teachers, all who have tried have failed. But none failed as hard as Sera, whose plans quickly went awry when a rogue bee enters the scene – leaving him with no choice but to strip naked. Of course the situation doesn’t faze Sakamoto in the slightest – but Sera‘s reputation has been utterly tarnished.

#2: The Rainy Day

“Watamote” (2013)

Anyone familiar with the series knows the gist – Tomoko struggles to fit in with the regular folk and always embarrasses herself when trying. No scene exemplifies that better than this one. When a torrential downpour starts, she and two young boys find themselves stuck under shelter until it subsides. Thinking it’s a perfect opportunity to test her conversational skills she mumbles out a series of directionless topics… and doesn’t stop…Stop. Just make it stop already. Please.

Before we reveal our number one pick, here are a few honourable mentions.

The Kiss
“Naruto” (2002-07)

The Unplanned Strip-Show
“Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood” (2009-10)

The Performance Mishap
“K-ON!” (2009)

#1: The Last Resort

“Prison School” (2015)

In order to pull off their master plan to escape prison, the boys need one essential tool – a fart sound effect. As luck should have it, they are put in a computer class with a heap of female students. Tragedy strikes, however, when the Internet has utterly failed them… no fart tracks can be found and time is running out! The true hero he is, Gakuto makes the ultimate sacrifice…and shits his pants. I think we can all agree that it had to be done…Now, lets take a moment to mourn the death of Gakuto’s reputation.
