Jojo is the only show I've felt was extremely overhyped. Only managed to watch a few episodes and that was while watching the show with friends-- haven't decided it was worth my time to watch on my own.

The recent popular isekai like Shield Hero and Reincarnated as a Slime. All my friends told me to watch it, but they're kinda boring.


CHLO's right in my opinion. They got a lot of attention for putting a bit of a spin on the isekai genre, but once that wore off, the shows themselves were not all that great (except for the Kevin Penkin soundtrack in Shield Hero).

A lot of people seem to like Mirai Nikki And The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumia, but I thought the former was full of gaping plot holes and contradictions, while Haruhi was simply not interesting to me.
It's not like I like anime or anything.

Here are some examples for me:

Kizumonogatari, the movies, it's just very average, I don't get it why the hype.

More recently Yakusoku no Neverland, when the things got better, the season ended, definitely an anime "8".

Steins Gate 0, it's just the same as the first season, but far from the same "quality". It's kind of you just want to end as quickly as possible.

One Punch Man first season, it's very good, but not as much as I heard of it.

Haruhi Suzumiya. I don't know what people see in it, because I found it extremely annoying.

Your Lie in April.

So many people hail it as a masterpiece, on the basis that it gave them the "feels" and made them cry.

Bakemonogatari was, for me, a huge disappointment. I could barely finish it, and would never want to willingly watch the other seasons. I wouldn't call it garbage or anything, but it definitely wasn't my cup of tea, and I think it's pretty overblown in general.

Future Diary is absolute trash with almost no redeeming qualities. Extremely overrated, and the only reason it has as many fans as it does is because of Yuno (who isn't even that great of a character).

Akame ga Kill for reasons others have mentioned.

I also never understood the appeal of Gintama. Comedy is very subjective though, so I won't judge. I just think it gets far too much praise for what is otherwise a very mediocre show.

Maybe because it's not really trying to do social commentary nor give life lessons. It's just a story about broken and awful people. Unless you count "don't act like any of these people" as life lessons.

Watch it first and then shit about it. Gintama has really bizzare comedy and one of the best serious arcs. You should shit about shows that you have watched.

On a personal level, Nichijou and Hellsing Ultimate

On a more general level, maybe Quintessential Quintuplets considering how MAL roasts generic harems

This is a more complex subject than you think, because it depends a lot on the taste of each person, but there are some tendencies like animes shounem (battle or sport) this genre passes much excitement which helps people to give high marks. Another genre like this is the drama is very common to see animes of drama receive good ratings much because of tinkering with people's feelings.

I think there's a lot more to it than that, though it definitely hits closer to home if you're a musician (go figure, right?). Being a performing artist requires a certain level of passion for the work that doesn't exist in other professions.

Listen to interviews with any great musicians, painters, writers, actors, etc. and you'll see what I mean. They're the epitome of people who do their jobs not because they simply want their next paycheck, but because they're genuinely in love with what they do. They enjoy every aspect of the creative process, and they enjoy seeing the reactions of people who appreciate their work. For them, there's no greater pleasure than to breath life into the deepest parts of the human soul.

And yes, it definitely sounds cliche as hell, and it's not something everyone can understand. Me personally, I played saxophone for 6 years in both my highschool's and my university's Jazz band, and even today I regret having to give it up. Those "cliche" moments from YLiA were commonplace for me at one point, so watching it really hit home for me. No one who has truly felt the joys and the sorrows of music could dislike this anime. Because it's so incredibly accurate in how it depicts the extreme juxtaposition young musicians face. The years of struggling and desperation trying to perfect your craft vs. the few brief minutes on stage when all that work culminates in a giant outpouring of emotion for the world to see.

I don't think YLiA is an anime that can move people to tears the same way something like Clannad or Anohana would, because the later two deal with topics far more relatable to the general viewer. YLiA has a more specialized audience, which is why I don't blame anyone who says it wasn't their cup of tea (and conversely, I thoroughly enjoy hearing people without a musical background talk about how much they loved it).

How do you know I haven't watched it? Because it's not on my list of watched shows? Not everyone has time to constantly update their MAL profile; I created mine in 5 minutes, just adding whatever anime I could remember seeing off the top of my head. This site isn't the be-all end-all of anime for me, and I really couldn't care less about the information I post here. I HAVE seen some of Gintama, and from what I've seen it was average. Maybe we just have (*GASP*) DIFFERENT OPINIONS ON HUMOR?!?! Oh the horror!

@AngryCactus and @PunkRocker2001 re Haruhi -- as someone who liked that show, I liked it for Kyon's deadpan responses to the craziness around him, rather than anything Haruhi herself did. Haruhi is like someone who doesn't know that they're annoying, and is certainly not particularly likeable as a person though I found her interesting in combination with Kyon's reactions to her. The other main characters (Yuki, Mikuru, Itsuki) I also found not particularly interesting. So for me the show was pretty much carried by Kyon's reactions to things; anyone who isn't entertained by that, I'd surmise, wouldn't be very entertained by the show as a whole.

Some people also point out how the show is a groundbreaking combination of a variety of different genres, combining school, slice-of-life, science fiction, romance, comedy, and drama in radical ways, so I guess there's a possibility that one might enjoy it for that. That wasn't what drew me though.

You're not wrong. Its definitely over hyped, and I thought the first half of the first season was rather boring and actually dropped it the first time I tried it, but Stardust Crusaders, and Golden Wind arcs are prime and now I'm something of a Jojo fan. If you want to give it another shot, you can pretty much jump right into Stardust Crusaders with no prior knowledge and enjoy it as long as you know the name Dio Brando.

It's usually only the dramatic shit like Clannad, Your Lie in April, or Kimi no Na Wa. I can't get sentimental and sappy over characters who are just sad and have upsetting backstories, I like to actually understand and be invested in them.

At least for most action series or even slightly less, isekai, I get where people want to say "it's different which makes it good" but they're still wrong.

Talk about going to great lengths to get the viewer to understand the characters' experiences.

Compressing this arc would make it get to its conclusion faster, yeah, though it'd also reduce the amount to which the audience would feel that key sense of frustration.

I don't know, since I never read either of those, but for some reason I think I remember hearing that that arc may have been unique to the anime. However, looking it up in the Haruhi wiki there appear to be LN and manga versions of it. So I'm not sure.

Edit: at least the LN's Endless Eight predates the anime by a few years, so no, it's not anime original, apparently.

I feel strongly that that arc would have been much better suited to the manga than the anime, or that it should have been realized and altered in the adaption.

The first ~15 episodes of the 2006 original version. I really tried to give it a chance, since other people tend to rate it so highly, but it just wasn't doing it for me so I dropped it. Why is this such a big deal to you?

@MadHobbit2
gotta agree its incredibly overrated the jokes get old incredibly fast

@thevagus
doesnt really matter how many he watched, its the same thing throughout the entire show

that said i've only seen 240 episodes or smth around that number
personally i don't think its bad and i enjoyed it much more back then, but at the 200 mark it just got incredibly boring so i dropped the 2nd season
i used to think it was funny
honestly im surprised i watched that many in the first place

_____
So some i think are overrated
Gintama - comedy gets old / monotonous
One Piece - horrendous pacing and character designs
Bakemonogatari - absolutely appalling camera angles and directing
Perfect Blue - bland character and way too fucking disturbing, might as well make an anime about someone torturing people all day would make just as much sense
Stranger Mukou Hadan - bland characters, predictable plot (had to watch this again because i literally fell asleed during this one the first time thats how boring it was)
Akira - absolutely horrible art
Mushishi - horrendous pacing, to get the message across 50 mins in total/mini movie, would have been enough

That makes sense. First thirty episodes are only there to form foundation which is really important even tho it is boring. Good comedy starts after episode 34. Good story and bizzare comedy starts after benizakura arc which is from episode 48 to episode 51. Gintama is fucking bizzare after that and constantly delivers new type of humor until the end. In the end of 2015 season it has two best shonen serious arcs with lots of feels.
I won't force you or anything but just consider rewatching it when you are depressed.

@Daphi it does have different kinds of humor. It might not be your type of humor. But it is false that it is same through out, in fact series changes quite drastically throughout the eps.

i disagree
in 240~ episodes the humor was exactly the same
always screaming and then some other shit
saying its not my type of humor is false
i very much enjoyed it for the first 50-100 eps
it just got old because it was more of the same so i started to not enjoy it because the plot wasnt actually going anywhere, i know there is a story, but due to the focus on comedy that is always the same the plot is paced horrendously, worse than one piece in that regard, i know comedy is the point, but in such a long running series you need more then just the same type of comedy all the time

I mean that it is not a great depiction of people.
It mostly amounts to a moral caricature and talks nothing about difference in way of talking and come of as quite idealistic in it's themes and messages because it avoids any real challenge.
It says some things are bad but gives a magical solution to them without any real context.
The comedy is fine because it holds even with the story being a complete mess by poorly made characters and poorly explored themes.
I am not against a criticism of the hikikomori lifestyle, but it have to do better than that if it really want to help solve a problem rather than be the problem.
But of course it's aim probably is to be the problem.

it just got old because it was more of the same so i started to not enjoy it because the plot wasnt actually going anywhere, i know there is a story, but due to the focus on comedy that is always the same the plot is paced horrendously, worse than one piece in that regard, i know comedy is the point, but in such a long running series you need more then just the same type of comedy all the time


Comedy is the main focus of the anime. Plot does move after first season is finished and after 2015 season, there is nothing but plot which is mixed with humor.
Humor isn't same at all. Humor in every arc is different af. For example, santa arc which comes after diviner arc has different humor to the core. Renho arc which comes after love choriss arc has a very different humor. There is actually a lot of plot in gintama even baka ouji has his own background story.
It has pacing issues regarding plot but it is worth it because of shogun assassination and farewell shinsengumi arc which is at the end of 2015 season.

Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost."

Most genre-deconstruction anime are really overhyped and overrated.

Like, dude, no worries, you can enjoy Kill La Kill for its humor and its fanservice.
You can stop pretending you need a 300 IQ to understand its "anti-objectification yada yada" message, lmfao.
Talk about character development? I started liking beer.

Most overrated for me is Guilty Crown. Watched this show bcos my friend recommended for me and he said that this is the best anime ever. Into 4 episodes of the show and boy i was dissapointed. I endured very hardly to watched it till the end bcos i hate doing something halfway. Nothing makes sense. And i Mean nothing. Even SAO can be reasonable with and understandable even with a little bit flaws but guilty crown just spoil everything from the beginning. You could watched it if you wanna know more. I’m not good at explaining stuff. Oh yeahh, forgot abt bunny girl senpai. Still don’t get what’s the hype abt. It’s basically monogatari recycled.


For the most underrated probably Natsume series the one dealing with yokai and Sorayori. These show are fun but there’s barely people talking about these kind of shows.

I mean most of those "genre deconstructions" are usually not deconstructions and usually reconstructions or literally using every accessible tool in their genre archive. Saying it's special doesn't put it on a pedestal Becky.

The first ~15 episodes of the 2006 original version. I really tried to give it a chance, since other people tend to rate it so highly, but it just wasn't doing it for me so I dropped it. Why is this such a big deal to you?


That makes sense. First thirty episodes are only there to form foundation which is really important even tho it is boring. Good comedy starts after episode 34. Good story and bizzare comedy starts after benizakura arc which is from episode 48 to episode 51. Gintama is fucking bizzare after that and constantly delivers new type of humor until the end. In the end of 2015 season it has two best shonen serious arcs with lots of feels.
I won't force you or anything but just consider rewatching it when you are depressed.


Lmao back-and-forth on a fourm. I would never think i would see something like this

My original waifu was Rem, so my signature is a tribute to her. Thank you Rem, for being my first and longest Waifu. I hope you get Subaru one day.

Rem is my OG waifu.
Asuna was able to liberate me and allow me to like other waifus.
Zero Two was able to free me of the curse of liking an SAO character as a waifu
Sagiri awakened the degenerate in me.
