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.


I didn't even know there was a message in Kill La Kill other than maybe the whole "be unique" and the "even if you're not the same as everyone else you don't need to hate yourself" messages.

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.

Every single person who ever suggested me Kill La Kill always had to throw in how the anime is a "clever and subtle parody and critique of the ecchi sub-culture because of how the concept of clothes is depicted" and bla bla bla.

I watched it and never found anything like that, but go off people.
Talk about character development? I started liking beer.

eren only killed more actual humans than he killed titans so that plot summary is no plot summary at all xD
as far as i remember he only killed 1 titan
also thats not what the anime is about at all xD
but the plot doesnt get revealed even remotely until they reach the basement or even later so i understand this misconception people have

and eromanga sensei is pretty awesome ill have to agree

Underrated:

Dragon Ball (the first one): I think DB is better than DBZ. It has good fight scenes but it is also more of an adventure anime with lots of good comedy and build up.

Lucky Star: Some people hate on this. It's a very chill anime with great humour, it doesn't need a plot, similar to Nichijou. The homour is not as out there as Nichijou but it is funny in its own way. You have to watched this subbed.

Toradora: This is a great romcom anime with feels. Characters have depth, the comedy is good and the drama is good.


Overrated:

Your lie in April: To me this felt too forced and predictable.

Gintama: I've watched about 250 episodes and while it's good the comedy gets old after a while, yet all seasons have around 9 ratings.

Overlord
Most Isekai anime is overate, but honestly, idk why Overlord is underrated. Probably being an isekai makes most members do not take it seriously. Yeah, people often complain about Ainz and his servant being overpower, slow pacing, having no thrill, no characters development and stuffs. But was it an adventure of some newbie in the first place? Why we need them? Things I like most about Overlord is how the story not concentrate on Nazarick but others characters of that world. It really do makes each and every character has depth in their buildings, not just some forgettable street passing guys. While the second and third season are not really a good adaption (but good writing if you ask me), the first season is good to enjoy. Try ignoring your prejudice and watch it slowly, carefully, then give it a little thought, try to view it from the characters's view then you would know why Japaneses are so hype for it

Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau (Children of the Whales)

This was a real masterpiece that wasn't really recognized when it came out in Fall 2017. It still is sadly, with a score of 7.31 and 110,000 members on MAL.
The sound and BGM is outstanding, in addition to lovable characters and fluid animation sequences. It blew my expectations out the water and got me hooked on until the last episode.

For those who want a few heart-moving moments won't be disappointed either. All in all, I think it deserves much more attention then it already has, and this should reach more people.

Do give it a try guys..... You might find it the same way I did :)

OVERRATED

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai
Please read carefully before hating me. I'm not saying that this show is shit. It's a good anime but shouldn't be on around 8.5 rating. I saw many people gave it 10/10. In my opinion, it has the supernatural phenomenons like Haruhi Suzumiya, psychological conversation like Monogatari Series, and romantic drama like Oregairu. But it just a downgraded version of their mixture. A lot of events in this show couldn't be explained logically especially Rio Futaba who tried to use scientific explanation but it still didn't make any sense. Also, many problems had been solved too easily. The causes of them are very simple, not different from other animes out there. I only enjoyed Kaede arc TBH and I prefer The Pet Girl of Sakurasou (Written by the same author) than this.

My rating: 7.5-8.0

Koe no Katachi (A Silent Voice)
This one wasn't very much overrated. I just felt like it was too rushed. But every other things are great. It might be from my overhyping for this anime. I saw Kimi no na wa (Your Name) first then a lot of people started to compare these two movies but in the end, I prefer Kimi no na wa.

My rating: 8.0

Steins;Gate 0
I'm a big fan of Steins;Gate Series and really like the original show. It was a masterpiece for me. But in S;G 0, they shouldn't adapt it into only 23 episodes. Story in the VN is very long and they just cut off it a lot to make it fits in limited eps. They just wasted a potential to make the great sequel of a masterpiece show. The last episode just saved it btw.

My rating: 8.0

UNDERRATED

It's sad that most of the underrated animes are the comedy ones. Sometimes, rating is not fair when comparing with drama animes.

K-On!
K-On! is my best Slice of Life anime ever. I couldn't find many animes out there that can show us "what the actual slice of life anime is". Every moment in this show can be experienced in my daily life which made it very enjoyable. Especially if you love music, this show could be imprinted in your heart forever.

My rating: 9.0

Release the Spyce
I don't know why this show got only 7.0/10. I was quite enjoying it lol. It has good actions, some drama, catchy songs. It might has some boring episodes, too weak villain. But I still enjoyed it.

My rating: 8.0

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Movie: Take On Me
This is one of the best anime films I've ever watched. Everything in this series has been summed up perfectly and happily. You'll feel very satisfied after watching it (Except ones who hate the series from the start, you don't need to watch this). The movie is the best way to end this series. I love it.

My rating: 9.5-10

Overrated: Steins;Gate
I LOVE the show but I wouldn't expect it to be this popular. For example, a similar popularity show like Death Note. I would recommend that to anybody. But I wouldn't recommend Steins;Gate. It's popularity makes me happy but when I think of recommending it to someone idk if they will like it despite the ratings. I can't put it into words but I don't know how its in the top 3 without a cult hating on it.

Ah don't know why I post here definitely it's because of lack of new threads but I can't understand Kimetsu no Yaiba and Carole & Tuesday scores they have absolutely nothing, very boring. Well at least "know" why Carole & Tuesday score is this high because it's similar to Sora Yori which is another overrated anime for me but have no idea for Kimetsu no Yaiba

I think I started watching seasonals from 1 and half years ago and this is the weakest season I see until now. At least we have Hitoribocchi in this season.
Also Amazing Stranger is underrated from this season. At least it's better than Senko-san...

Most Overrated:
Oregairu(First and Second season), the amount of drama that this show had was totally unnecessary and useless to the characters, and those unnedded complex(and pseudo intellectual, mostly by Yukino) dialogues that in the end were just ship battles and flirting, the show went from interesting topics to a fucking waifu battle, and let's not talk about the totally forgotten drama at the start of the first season of Yui and Hachiman that could've been amazing development and was ignored cuz the author hates Yui(I'm not even a Yui fan BTW), the sad part is that the story seems like it won't change a thing in the next season, maybe will get even worse. And I can barelly remember the OST of this show, mediocre at it's best.

Most Underrated:
Sakurada Reset, that show deserves an 8 easily(let's remember that it was 6.70~ in 2017), the way that the author solved the last "boss" of the show was AMAZING, it was so well done that it almost seems like he planned it all since the start, all the pieces got together, and the OST is just one of the best.

The more I watch the Classics(Ashita no Joe, The Kindaichi Files, Prince of Tennis, Detective Conan, the Gundam series...), more my admiration for them furthers, the Quality(The surgical OSTs, Innovative sound effects, Developing emotions on the act[for instance, a rage], Amazing Comic timings, Subtle romances, and even Culture) you see on those Classics isn’t really on the industry anymore, you should definitely check them!

My pick for overrated anime will always be Hataraku Maou-sama. Can't understand how some people find the comedy funny and the anime fun to watch while for me an episode feels like one hour or even more.

For underrated, Musaigen no Phantom World maybe because of how much people think of it as one of KyoAni's worst while for me, it was really fun to watch except maybe the Kurumi doll-thing episode but maybe that's just me lol.

It takes me one day to complete a 10-13 episode Anime

It takes me two days to complete a 25 episode Anime

It is now my second day of watching Haibane Renmei, I am on episode eight and I still do not get the hype. Is there a mystery? Surely. Is the mystery interesting? No.
I like how the Anime community acts like a bunch of Commie hippies, "We the Anime community!"

It's just a bunch of different circlejerks who all hate each other and their own kind.

I find it interesting in and of itself that you find the mysteries so uninteresting.



There's a lot of questions you can ponder for days, but maybe it's the atmosphere that gets people interested in pondering them in the first place. It either washes over you or it doesn't. Without the premise grabbing you in the first place it will probably be a chore to watch for most people, because all that said Haibane Renmei is an extremely slow-paced show and does something not often done by mixing Slice of Life genre with the mystery and fantasy genres. This can make it, especially the first six episodes or so, feel aimless and more about navel-gazing and feeling the atmosphere over being plot-driven.

Overrated :- Bunny Girl Senpai

Has a lot of pseudoscience, no memorable OSTs and the plot is kinda average and plain stupid at times, there's a lot of dialogue as well so it gets boring as well.

Underrated : - Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii Desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii Desu ka?

The characters are awesome, amazing OST, and the story is quite good, memorable ending, should have had a rating of atleast 8+

I was really surprised that Dragon Ball is actually highly rated on this website with reviews even praising it; I was under the impression that every man in the world agreed that Dragon Ball is the crème de la crème of garbage.

It is complete quantumbabble with nothing behind it but I thought the plot and character interactions were really interesting and it was a welcome change from the constant "It's established in the second episode already that the two main characters clearly are developing feelings for each other but we're going to spend 20 episodes of them awkwardly denying it to themselves until they finally admit it at the end."

They were refreshingly genre-aware and casually admitted to themselves and each other that of course they were at the early stages of a developing romance.

I gave 4 points just because of the interaction between them or else I'd gladly give 0, cant relate much to that "constant" of yours because I never really cared about character romances, and I rarely watch romance anime.

To be fair this is like viewing a comedy series and then rating it poorly because it was all jokes and no plot when one doesn't like comedy.

The romantic development between Sakuta and Mai is kind of the most important thing of the story.

People were talking about Bungou Stray Dogs being underrated in the 3rd season discussion. Like some said, I guess it´s actually "underhyped". You just don´t see most viewers and fans in general being loud about it. BSD is a good series with a discreet success. At least here in America.

Now, in Japan it´s quite different, but I think the reason is simple. Japanese citzens read 11 books per year in general, they respect their writers a lot. They are taught to enjoy classic literature and know the people behind the books since childhood. That´s why BSD looks even more interesting to them. I gotta say, when I started to read books like I Am a Cat, Night on the Galactic Railroad and No Longer Human, the series started to look even cooler.

Just my two cents about that thread, since it was closed and admin sent us here.

Bunny Girl Senpai, Anohana, Kimi no Na wa and Bunny Girl Senpai again.

Bunny Girl Senpai: The more I think about the ratings this show got - some genuinely giving it a 10 - the more baffled I get. It's just your normal romance show, nothing different about it to make it that praised.

Anohana: terrible writing and plot trying to disguise itself between a few "emotional" punches that are nothing more than teenagers shouting at each other and crying about their unrequited love. Some scenes with Menma are fine, but the rest of the show ruins it.

Kimi no Na wa: I really don't get the hype behind this. Don't get me wrong, it was fine, but nothing excepcionally unique. The visuals are amazing, but the puddle deep characters holds the art back.

Underrated no doubt: Ga-rei zero and Redline.

Overrated: any yuasa show, almost all dementia series, bunny girl sempai (nearly all of the plot ideas and points, including the "never before seen" interaction between Mai and Sakuta is done better, more satisfyingly and less holier than thou in monogatari).

Let the hate begin

In my opinion, Toradora is really overrated

People are calling it one of the best romance+comedy anime, but honestly it's just really boring.



  • Most of the episodes are like some filler ones. They have absolutely no purpose and they change nothing in the story.
  • The romance part of it is also terrible IMO, since it's basically nothing, it's just 90% comedy and 10% romance.
  • Also many say Taigai is the best tsundere character in anime, but she's just annoying for me.



I really like romance anime, it's one of my favorite genres, but Toradora is the most boring one I've seen so far.

Overrated

1. Angel beats.
Some people really love it because it is "sad". Well yes, but that is the only thing you got. The few first episodes aren't that strong and great. It had a lot of potential, and the concept is really great. But, the execution is just too terrible. Besides the "sad" part, I just got bored and bored.

2. Anohana
The same thing as Angel Beats.

3. Re:zero
Some people will say it is so good, because it is just mind-blown and the story is unpredictible. Well, that was useless if you don't have a good MC character. Seriously, the story in Re:zero isn't that dark. Maybe some people will consider it so "dark", but maybe they just never look at the real dark anime? I don't know. And the MC, Subaru is just awful. He has no personality whatsoever except he can go back in time if he die. But he's just boring, he's not funny, he has no rage, he has no phylosophy, he has nothing. Well, he actually got depressed after died more and more, but the execution of it just bad. After he goes crazy, a girl just express her love, and then he goes back to normal.

4. Kimi No Nawa
I don't understand why people really so hype into this. I like romance shows like shigatsu, but not this one. I don't get the feeling at all, I just don't really like the character, and everyone said the conceptt is good, while I just think it is like Yamada-kun with a little bit of time traveller stuff.

5. Koe No Katachi
I actually love the flashback of this movie, but only that. Well, it's still enjoyable, but not as enjoyable as 9+ score. The movie is just too rash. They just focused on Ueno (sorry if I said it wrong, it's been years since I watched it) for the antagonist, while the two guys (I don't remember their name, but they were MC's childhood friends, and I'm really sure they are important for the MC, since what we know that the MC has the same issues like the Heroine (for getting bullied), they will be "male" Ueno).

Underrated
1. Youjo senki
Maybe this anime is not for everyone, I get it, but Youjo Senki is just so underrated. In Isekai-Quartet (if you know what the show, you will get what I'm saying), Youjo Senki is my favorite shows after Konoshuba. It has a great MC with a phylosophy, it is isekai, but it tries a different thing rather than medieval with sword, armor, devil king, satan, magic, etc (well, it has magic, but the magic is clearly different than the magic from the medium of isekai).

2. Tonari no Totoro
I don't know what to say, it is just so creative and so great. Even the world that Tonari no Totoro offer is like "our world", but having an imagination big fat friend is something that make me considering about this world.

3. Mushishi
Again, another masterpiece that I'm really sure a lot of anime community, especially people who like watching ecchi-harem with romance will don't know about it. Ginko, the MC just makes me feel so Empathy to him, and the story and the concept is just so cool. It doesn't need arc or long story to make me hype. Sometimes it just makes me so mind-blown. And the best part is that it has "consequences". It is impossible to always get a good ending. You have to choose what's right, saving the first human but making the others get killed, or the opposite of it.

Anohana: terrible writing and plot trying to disguise itself between a few "emotional" punches that are nothing more than teenagers shouting at each other and crying about their unrequited love. Some scenes with Menma are fine, but the rest of the show ruins it.

Kimi no Na wa: I really don't get the hype behind this. Don't get me wrong, it was fine, but nothing excepcionally unique. The visuals are amazing, but the puddle deep characters holds the art back.
ironic you say that but your fav is the most overrated force and cringe drama 3gatsu no lion.

You're entitled to your opinion, mate. I just can't see the irony in criticizing bad "emotional" punches like Anohana and their shouting teenagers - I suppose that's what you're referring to, since you mentioned cringe drama - while at the same time liking 3-gatsu. If you think 3-gatsu is cringe overrated drama, sure, you do you, I just can't see how all of these would be the same kind of "cringey" and therefore make it ironic for me to dislike one while liking the other.

Chill out, I know you're looking for someone to argue with, but I'm not gonna give you that. The whole purpose of the thread is saying what you think is overrated/underrated. You already gave your opinion, I gave mine and that's all there's to it.

SSY isn't really about the characters though. It's about the world, and the themes and groups of people. I get the complaint about the characters, but I think it's often exagerrated and I don't think deep, distinctive characters are absolutely necessary for something to earn high praise. SSY does such a great job with not only world-building, but giving an atmosphere to that world. I always think it's like Ergo Proxy in a way that they both exude such a strong atmospheric pull that draws the viewer (this viewer at least) in through the use of great directing, world-building, and sound design.

I think the Precure, lyrical nanoha and Symphogear series are really underrated because of other animes like FMA, Madoka Magica, AoT, Sailor moon and Dragon ball.

Same with Aikatsu and Pripara series are underrated because love live is so much popular

Kimetsu no Yaiba,Dr. Stone and Shield Hero most overrated things I've seen in a while


You give vinland saga a 10 and KNY a 6 then say KNY is overrated? Even if you're rating Vinland based on the manga, that's really off. If you're not, then that rating makes no sense whatsoever

Vinland saga and AOT season 3 are the most overrated animes this seasom

it was entertaining watching your replies in the thread about KnY's sudden praise now you're here lol. I rate based on enjoyment, if Vinland Saga gets worse then I'll lower the score. Saying my rating makes no sense is stupid if I like Vinland I'll give it a higher score. I think anything over 7 is good and so far as a whole I don't think KnY is good. If it was a seinen then it would probably be an easy 9/10 or 10/10 but it's not. For example episode 7 with Muzan and episodes 15, 19 and 20 were fairly serious compared to the rest and didn't have comedy or Zenitsu there to ruin anything and I'd give each of those episodes 9s or 10s.


Oh trust me, the fans of Vinland Saga are one of the most entertaining bunch I've seen. Personally, I will judge people who call trashy online love novels literature, people who think bubblegum pop are masterpieces... And it applies to anime too because I actually consider anime a respectable form of art. In any case, calling something "overrated" implies there's an objective assessment of what's good and what's not and what's getting too much praise for what it's worth.

@keragamming This guy is a psychopath. He took an L and is now far gone. All because KnY is just a mediocre/bad shounen and nothing else, saved by Ufotable....

If you question/criticize anything about it he will draw retarded comparisons with completely different stories. Even Dracula.. like what in the fuck. Comes down do to giving your opinion on TWD and then get an answer saying "but HOTD did it too!!".
