Favorite Abridged Series and Reccomendations

So I've been on a abridged anime binge for a while and I'm just wondering what everyone else considers a good one to follow.

For example, I've recently gotten into watching the SAO abridged by SWE Abridged. Seeing a Jerkass Kirito slowly devolve into socipathic tendencies is quite amusing, and voice overs and editing is pretty well done.

I've only watched DBZ Abridged, and it pretty much ruined me for any other Abridged series that doesn't use multiple voice actors, proper gendered voice actors, etc.

DBZ abridged is awesome.

Also, the new episode has a really creepy Cell.

TeamFourStar also has Hellsing Abridged and Attack on Titan (only one ep.).

I also recommend Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Abridged: http://www.youtube.com/user/AntfishTAS/featured

He has done some stuff with the new series, but the main thing is the complete abridgment of the old OVAs.

There's always the classic Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged at www.yugiohabridged.com and then, we get at actual tastes/more niche things, maybe.

Most of the members of DBZ Abridged worked on something else before, usually on YouTube. MasakoX and vegeta3986 worked on the dead Naruto Abridged [at least, nobody bothers with it anymore, be it this series or another], Lanipator worked on YuYu Hakusho Abridged [too busy to return], takahata101 worked on G Gundam Abridged [which was excellent for something that lasted 6 episodes only], KaiserNeko worked on Lupin the III Abridged [someone tell me why he is considered funny please tell me I don't get it], Megami33 worked on Sailor Moon Abridged [it hit 50 episodes before promptly dying], and so on and so forth.

Also, the F-ton of Pokémon Bridges out there.

There's also Ninjabridge, which somehow abridges an abridge show.

I find it amusing, but it's too bad Little Kuriboh stopped working on it

Speaking of Little Kuriboh, his latest youtube channel, CardGamesFTW has been banned, and apparently he's been banned on itunes as well. Ninjabridge is still up though.

He gets banned all the time though, so that isn't surprising

Takahata101 from Team Four Star has Hellsing Ultimate Abridged on his channel and it's glorious. Unfortunately it only updates one or twice a year. He also had the first episode of Attack on Titan Abridged, but YouTube took it down. Damnit.

It doesn't. Your phrasing implies that it uses more jokes from Naruto Abridged. Which... you know, it doesn't.

[I seriously do not understand the humor in that series. And by that I mean 'how can this be so unfunny so often?'.]

Meh. Well everybody's incorrect at times.

Anyway, speaking of AoT Abridged there's also Abridged on Titan.

It's pretty good quality. Though they did give Armin a pretty annoying voice too...

CodeMENT too. And really, I think the parody dub of Ghost Stories counts too.

Maybe.

The guys behind the DCAU abridged featuring Young Justice, Batman Under the Hood, and many of the animated DC movies. Pop in for some good editing and a Special Superboy!

The longest running abridge of the FF7 videogame! Hilarious and with 17 episodes under their belt.

Metal Gear Solid Abridged. Cameod in TFS and his abridging of MGS is both funny and good story.

Hellsing Abridged is released around every Halloween.

As for the Spoof Naruto Abridged, just not your thing H-Man.

Other series... there's Mobile Suit Gundam Abridged, Yugioh GX Abridged, G Gundam Abridged (though it mostly got shut down but some videos might still be there), Evangelion Abridged (the good one actually had male and female voice actors)

Friendship is Witchcraft (My Little Pony) but honestly I don't think it's really so much abridged (the videos get close to 20 minutes and not a lot of parodying the original source material) as an alternate series that happens to use My Little Pony videos.

Seems to me the best abridged series are the ones based on a series that, at their hearts, are actually pretty ridiculous but the original series insists on playing it seriously.

The one off Attack on Titan abridged made by teamfourstar is pretty decent.

I would recommend the SAO abridged series by SomethingWitty. 4 episodes so far.

KeiAyanami's uploads of Evangelion Abridged are great, but sadly are done as they are. Which sucks because I still love to start up EP6 and jump straight to Shinji screaming "OH GOD WHY" because it's -almost- like Spike saying it.

A Slap on Titan episode 14

I was actually wondering where they would go with this episode. I didn't imagine that it would turn out the way it did honestly.

Though I should've suspected it...
