I never really get the hype of Soul Eater. It may be entertaining, but I hate everything Halloween related so no surprise i hated the anime.

DxD at least has a proper world, doesn't pussy out, and the female lead is an actual likable person and not tsundere trash

After watching Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, I could not for the life of me understand why everyone was so hyped about it. I didn't find it to live up to the expectations everyone set for it.

Excuse me, just because I have a favorite that has low quality doesn't mean that I can't recognize quality itself. Favorite animes has more into it than just quality.

Ugh, I hate negative threads like that and as always most of the shows mentioned are actually pretty okay and it's pretty clear to me why they deserve the popularity they got. Why do people enjoy being toxic and bitching about pointless stuff so much? Why do people insanely overvalue their own opinion and think it's any basis to judge whether something deserves popularity or not? NObody gives a shit if you're one of the hundred thousand people who start hating a popular show. For shows with popularity you haters are a dime a dozen and all it tells me is that the show is popular and that triggers people. It's barely even related to quality how many haters a show has, it's all about how popular it is and how much people can feel like hipsters with unique taste while jumping on the hate bandwagon.

Meanwhile I'll try to find a thread that's not about people just expressing irrational hatred and shitting on other peoples preferences to make themselves feel better.

Listen, everybody wants change, don't nobody want to change though
don't nobody want to pray, till they got something to pray for
now everybody's gonna die, but don't everybody live though

In the end, people always get salty and end up shitting on each other on those kinds of topics, like you said.

Could someone explain me what is the reason behind the popularity for One Piece, for Naruto, for Bleach? Could someone please explain me (without the "is because it's awesome" or any shit like that) why these series are so overhyped.

Of course I saw some episodes from these series and, because I found them so boring, I couldn't understand why there are people who like them

One Punch Man: It's average at best but Saitama is boring and not deep enough to be pleasing to watch. But if OPM wasnt popular then Mob Psycho might not exist so im kinda worried about this one.

I actually hate talking about it because I don't enjoy talking about stuff I hate very much, at least after the initial frustration has been vented, which has long, long, long happened with Shigatsu. It's just usually the only thing I can even mention in these negative threads because it's possibly the only anime I ever really hated (at least the only really popular one, not sure if Kabaneri counts as popular enough to qualify for that), while everyone else seemingly hates everything that isn't on their favorites, just using the term very inflationary to express any slight dissatisfaction with something.
Even then, I haven't talked about Shigatsu in years, all I ever do is link people to my old rants, when I was still freshly triggered, from whille it was airing, because nothing would bring me less joy than having to argue about Shigatsu at this point.

Plus no matter how much I hated Shigatsu, I never made a thread about it to let everyone know my irrelevant opinion on the show. The only times I talked about it was when others made threads that asked questions about it. I don't spread negativity and hatred like that, I just try to get it out of my system as quickly as possible so I'm not still hating on shows when they're three seasons in or 30 years old like some of the wonderfully positive people in this thread.

Basically where other people cling to and enjoy their own irrational hatred for a show, wanting to rub it into everyone's face every day and cherish those negative feelings so they never leave them and stay in their heart forever, I just wanna vent and rant short-term until I'm done and then forget about it and not keep that hatred with me for the rest of my life.

I don't like hating a show, it doesn't give me any enjoyment and it doesn't make me happy, it's just an annoying and frustrating feeling. Sometimes it can't be helped and I will hate a show, but I'm always more inclined to want to forget about it instead of dwelling on that hatred, bringing it to the public and rubbing it into everyone's face by making whole threads about it. But after 8 years on AD I can say I'm in the definitive minority here. Most people are active on the forums for the most part to do exactly that - rub their negative feelings about shows in the faces of other people, ideally fans of the show because how dare those fans get enjoyment out of something that only made them angry. They need to learn that THEY should be angry too, so let's try and MAKE them angry, shall we?

That's how it feels at least.

I really dont understand why would pp hate an anime
an anime doesnt rip off your leg or give you aids why would you hate something thats made up by frames and pixels
I guess mostly the fandoms that are overly toxic and tarded lead people to hate those anime despite not actually watching them themselves

We just have to make threads on AD to rub each other off by incessantly complaining about how every single anime that attracts an audience might not appeal to us or be considered good. "Everything that exists should appeal to me, selfishness is human nature and I am in no way sounding or acting like this by turning my frustrations with the content I dislike achieving some measure of success onto its audience." Give me a fucking break.

I should just make a fucking copy/paste one-liner where I can switch out the keywords about (x) type of content or (x) series and then post a new one in each and every thread like this, just because it's all every post in it every amounts to. Same shit every time, same pointlessness and the same amount of delusions of grandeur that their hollow, in-explanatory one-liner possesses some degree of merit towards how other people should consume and view the shit they watch. Bonus points if they turn around and try to use "it's just my opinion don't get so pissy lol u mad?" if they get blasted for their shitty take.

People don't get tired of how incredibly circular it all is, for some reason, which is fucking insanity in my eyes, but whatever. I'll never view it as anything except vapid and pointless, but hey, it still seems less annoying and redundant to me than ecchi threads or "least favorite trope" threads.

captain tsubasa 2018 is so underrated. The match are so good and keeps your at edge of your seat. Unlike many other sport anime, they don't waste time on slice of life stuff. I mean tried to watch Major 2nd but dropped it after about ~12 episodes because too boring, felt like watching slice of life anime, not sport that has actual match.

Banana Fish is so also underrated. It deserve high score and more importantly need to be more popular. It one of the top anime in this season and year. People should give it a try, episode 9 is like best episode I've seen in this season (along with attack on titan episode 44)

Grand Blue is insanely overrated. 8.19 seriously ?! It just a mediocre comedy show. It is not so funny at all. Hataraku Saibou does better job when it comes to comedy, and also teaches you about human body

I feel like this is a poor question (or at least poorly worded) because popular anime are popular for a reason (i.e. they appeal to the public in some way or the other). So to say that a popular anime "doesn't deserve" it's popularity sounds contradictory. You could talk about obscure anime that ended up unpopular because it wasn't marketed right or came out at a poor time, but not the opposite.

Well, that's just what I think. I might be an idiot for all I know.

My Hero Academia is legit a synonym for overrated


overrated =/= popular

know the difference before thinking

Overrated = not as good as everyone else says/thinks it is
Know the difference and think before typing. Typical MHA fanboys though so nothing new.

The writing gets really horrible , contrived and inconsistent and when you dare mention anything wrong with it you get lynched as a "hater"....elitist's my favorite one.
The idea that that trash might not actually be as good as people want to believe it is so far away from fanboy and fangirl's perceptions that once you see someone imply it's not that great all you can assume is it's because it's popular. O mean, true, it is sad that great or just decent shows get overshadowed by this garbage and whereas other anime will get insane amounts of hatred and critique over small missteps and get trampled on, MHA will get away with a from start to finish horribly written episode and the same people hating on other shows will all over sudden have their brains turned off exclaiming how perfect the episode was for an entire week (ep 3 of season 3 I am looking at you)

But noooo, someone isn't acting like MHA is the third coming of Christ in anime form, they are just hating on it cause it's popular.
At least even when some other series do stuff wrong or right there's room for discussion with some level headed fans for insight. Used to be a fan of MHA and also thought it was good but I made the mistake of actually thinking about what was happening.
I honestly can't call any other anime overrated with the existence of MHA... I'm sorry if you have a problem with that

this season it's grand blue.
i'm still watching it..
but i guess i just don't find "the joke" very funny.
and it's repetitive or rather formulaic like it's pretty much the same thing every episode and the joke never really gets any better
i normally don't really mind the repetitive nature of comedy and sitcoms, but this one just isn't funny.

Overrated

Elfen Lied - Its gore and nudity doesn't even make me flinch and its plot is non-existent

Future Diary - Started off pretty good but the unlikeable characters and the absolute dumpster fire of an ending ruined it for me

Underrated

Ef: A Tale of Memories - I see many people call this show overrated but in my opinion, it's quite the opposite. It's a beautiful romance with an intriguing 2 sided plot that conveys emotion through great artistic expression. (The artistic expression starts to feel forced especially in the sequel)

Kanon - A beautiful tragedy with a great plot and loveable characters. I can't blame it for being overlooked because the season it came out in was stacked.

Little Busters - Although the first season is pretty standard, the second season really changes the whole attitude of the show and once again shows off key's great work.

I'm pretty sure that we've all agreed that everything is subjective and nothing is objectively over- or under-rated. Pretty much everyone is going to find a least a couple of them to overrated, but precisely which ones is going to vary a lot from one person to the next. That's not to say that some of the fandoms behind some of these shows can be kind of annoying though.

The funny thing is, I prefer the older versions for the both HxH and FMA... I do think the race between FMA versions is quite tight though. As for HxH... Well, the newer version has more content, but I don't think the adaption is nearly as good as in the older one.

And don't talk bad about my baby LOGH :'(

I don't want mean to be a dick on your thread again but does it matter what is overrated and what is not? Overrated=popular anyways it doesn't correlate to whether the anime is gonna be good or bad. Just watch what you enjoy I guess.

Nothing is overrated at all. People can do this all day, but in the end, there is a reason why all these anime are so highly acclaimed. I hate some shows on this list, but that doesn't mean that they don't "deserve" that popularity.

What most of them have in common is just being popular. That's the only fact here. If they are overrated or not that's only up to every anime viewer.

Furthermore, some of the titles in the list are not even highly acclaimed to begin with (like Re:Zero and Tokyo Ghoul).

Overrated claims usually by people who didn't like it as much as the majority, had false expectations, unreasonable demands you name it. Wow. Tell me why I should care when they have no good arguments ?
