23+ BEST Anime Where The Overpowered MC Has The Lowest Rank

Anime where Overpowered mc has lowest rank

Hello everyone! I hope you had a fantastic day of binging anime and reading manga. Is that just my ideal version of a perfect afternoon? Maybe.

Anyway, we have brought you a spectacular feast of recommendations. As always, these recommendations are ranked according to my opinions. These are not based upon facts.

Also, my opinions change 24/7, so there is a very high chance that I too may not agree with these rankings tomorrow. Every day, I experience a new anime, so my thoughts are bound to change.

However, I’m sure you will find a hidden gem on this list. My favorite one is Black Clover right now, but that’s probably because I’m currently watching it.

These characters never fail to crack me up! As much as I want to continue explaining myself, we don’t have any time to waste. Let’s get started!

Anime Storyline:

I love Kiznavier. I rewatched it during the summer because the storyline is unique. It’s upsetting that it doesn’t get the recognition it deserves, so I’m here today to do it justice.

Kiznavier is about these seven students that all belong to the same high school. Each of them has a scar on their bodies. This scar is the physical representation of their bond. If one of them is feeling internal pain, happiness, suffering, and such, they will all feel it.

Katsuhira Agata is our main character, and he is the worst choice for this project. Why? Well, that’s because he feels no pain!

Basically, humans are the lowest class. Kamina and Simon are two teens whose curiosity gets the better of them. They want to explore the surface, but will they stand a chance?

Genre: Light-Novel

Anime Storyline:

I’m going to be honest; the main character of Classroom of the Elite gives me the creeps. Kiyotaka Ayanokoji seems unspectacular and nothing special. He is socially awkward, but he doesn’t care. Kiyotaka isn’t trying to connect with his emotions.

The MC enters a very prestigious and elite high school. Shouldn’t he have some extraordinary powers then?

Wrong! He is a student of the lowest rank, the D-class. This is where the high school sends its most inferior pupils.

Not only is Kiyotaka unremarkable, but he also always scores 50% in every subject. Nothing less, nothing more—almost as if it was planned.

Anime Storyline:

ONE! PUNCH! MAN! God, I love this series.

One Punch Man is about our extremely OP MC Saitama who can knock out anyone in just one punch. He is the best of the best.

Whenever the world is in grave danger and no one can stop such incredulous monsters, Saitama always saves the day—without fail.

So, why is Saitama classified as C-rank?!

 

Comment Or Get punched!

Saitama

And cut! That marks the end of our 24 Anime Where The Overpowered MC Has The Lowest Rank list. I hope you enjoyed it just as much as I enjoyed making it.

It’s always fun to watch our main characters being underestimated. Why? Isn’t that too cruel? No, because that means our payback will be a lot sweeter in time. Rising of the Shield Hero is a prime example of that.

When I first watched Rising of the Shield Hero, I was a livid man. I didn’t know I had such a violent side to me. I wanted to choke the life out of a few of these characters. They are lucky I can’t get past the screen, otherwise it would have been game over for them.

Classroom of the Elite was also wicked to watch. That ending man got me. I couldn’t sleep for a night after that closing scene.

One Punch man is another star recommendation I have for anyone. It’s comedic, but in certain moments, it does take on a more serious tone which is much appreciated.

It’s light and easy to watch, so if you know anyone that is starting on their anime journey, recommend One Punch Man. It’ll get them hooked!
