Otome games -- visual novel dating sims where the female protagonist can romance a number of attractive men -- have become increasingly popular and available in the West. With these games come a number of sexy, emotionally turmoiled men ready to fall over the heroine and fulfill the player's desire for a perfect and perfectly attractive boyfriend.
Unfortunately, for every shy gentleman and jerkass with a heart of gold there is a creepy, possessive, or sadistic love interest who can only be described as psychotic. I guess that's just some girls' thing, but the rest of us can only sit in horror as we watch our self-insert get tormented, manipulated, and worse on screen.
If you've ever been morbidly curious about the worst of hot anime boys, then look no further than this list. Just be warned: spoilers abound, and some of the character descriptions may be triggering and/or NSFW. Happy dating!
