Ever since we were children we’ve been told to never judge a book by its cover, but what about judging an anime by its title? Judging from these 5 titles, the series they belong too are probably extremely, unnecessarily, and excessively long-winded.
Without further ado, we present Viewster’s list of 5 anime with the longest titles:
1) Is It Wrong to Try to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon?
Ah, the age old question… long have we pondered proper dungeon dating etiquette, but is it really necessary to pose such a lengthy inquiry in an anime’s title? This title is so long, many people just call it ‘DanMachi‘ for short. Feel free to do the same.
If you’d like to learn a thing or two about picking up girls in dungeons, watch this series now with English, French and German subtitles in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, and Turkey.
2) My Mental Choices are Completely Interfering with my School Romantic Comedy
Also known by the much shorter nickname ‘Noucome‘, this title is the lengthiest of the list, clocking in at an impressive 22 syllables. Have you ever looked at an anime title and wondered what genre that anime would fall into? Well, you’ll never have that problem here.
3) When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace
Otherwise known simply as ‘Inou Battle’, this wordy title let’s you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into. Yes, we’re all interested in the implications of a world where otherworldly powers are no longer a rarity. No, you don’t have to remind us in the title.

4) Story in Which I Was Kidnapped by a Young Lady’s School to be a “Sample of the Common People”
This title is so long it deserves its own spoiler alert. Seriously, never before has an anime’s title revealed so much of the plot! To be fair, this title is usually shortened to ‘Shomin Sample’, but still, that original title is a doozy.
5) Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!
The shortest title on this list of behemoths, Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! is still more than a mouthful. Imagine having to shout this title every time you were about to enter a battle… you’d be out of breath before the first punch was thrown.
