Play its game, you'll be interested to read the manga, but well I drop one piece too..


I did try the manga, that's what I was saying. It's just not for me, sorry.

No, when I said play the game it means literally you play the android game, but whatever, I don't read one piece anymore too..

Your opinions are mine as well. Franxx was just a horrible mecha parody for me it was laughable from episode 14 (or even a but earlier) and onwards. TG, ive read the manga already and all of the important details were left out of the anime adaptation. Root A was the stupidest mistake ever made for the franchise, going original for what Studio Pierrot? The transition from Root A to Re was awful, they tried to forget the last season's disasters and managed to fail completely by giving no manga readers a huge middle finger

Every high ranking movie anime, I don't know why but I feel like series anime more interesting to watch than movie..

Inou Battle. Because Trigger.

That bait-and-switch from a lighthearted harem into a full-fledged war pisses me off so much.
If you disliked Usagi Drop or Toradora! (at least since the meeting Ami arc) we can't be friends.

Toaru Majutsu no Index, I don't understand why people praise it. Not the light novel, as majority of adapatations are inferior to the original source, but I'm pretty sure most fans haven not read the LN.

I think a fair amount of replies on this thread have a decent rationale behind why the person didn't like X show, etc.

And as much as I like to read emphatic positives with regards to new shows it's also fun to read the "unpopular opinion" type responses about highly rated shows.

Yes, some users made an effort and provided some reasoning. I am also not bothered at all when someone has a different opinion from my own. In fact if someone can make a meaningful contribution by providing some good arguments, I find it interesting even if it is a show I like. List, however, are as boring as phone books.

One Outs. I burst out laughing every time I see people saying it's a good sports anime. Same for bringing up it's "psychological" aspect.


I didn't have a definite answer until I saw your comment. Same! That anime felt like there were no characters, they're all dull. I laughed every time I see someone saying it's better than Major or Daiya.




i'm awesome right?!

Higurashi. After the first 8 episodes i got bored of the formula, still great at suspense and horror but feels like a chore

One Piece. It's just too darn long for me to enjoy

Mirai Nikki. It had an interesting premise but quickly became way too edgy for its own good. The main character is an uninteresting piecve of paper and Yuno is too crazy to be relatable. The only interesting character all die so yay

Full Metal Alchemist. The story and characters were great but the awful comedy and filler really ruined the seriousness of the show. I've heard Brotherhood is better so that's always something

Love Live!. No, just no

Goblin Slayer. Great premise: a dark fantasy show that isn't an isekai but the main character is boring and 1-dimensional and doesn't really have any interesting motivation

If you didn't like the transition from serious to comedic moments in FMA, it is unlikely you will like Brotherhood. It does the same with less subtlety.

damn, I was just beginning to think it would be more serious but I was wrong. I don't mind comedic relief, but FMA did it, in my opinion, in a really obnoxious manner

Lucky Star: Too many scenes with no actual jokes, too many references with no actual humor (Remember Haruhi? Remember Sgt. Frog?)

Fairy Tail: Every single fight/story arc is the same. Overreliance on nakama power.

End of Evangelion: Regardless of whether it has symbolism or not, it's very boring to watch.

FLCL: Don't really care about the characters or story, so I wasn't entertained by it. The only thing I liked was the soundtrack.

No Game No Life: The games are okay, but the characters are some of the most unlikable I've ever seen. The humor is garbage (Lol! They forced a girl to strip naked! Lol! A Jojo reference!)

Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun/KonoSuba: I'm not annoyed by these shows in and of themselves, but rather by the wasted potential of reusing okay jokes parodying certain character types until they become unfunny within a few episodes.

Most of these shows have a lot of bad reviews buts okay guys.

I'll say chihayafuru. Really I'm just not at all whoever the target audience is, I dont even think its badly made or anything. An romcom sports anime about playing a card game is just about the most boring thing I can think of though.

I wouldnt say cant stand, but I think

Yuuki Yuuna is a hero is pretty bad.

I had to drop the Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex series. I might watch it with only the plot episodes, but coming from the amazing movie, the series is just boring police stuff. Thats not what Im interested in.

I also think Little Witch Academy is pretty boring. The movie and OVA were great, but the series? Dragged out too long with a shit MC. and ofcourse the ending is alienz again.

Definitely better but still highly overrated (which sort of makes it unstandable) is Legend of Galactic Heroes, it being an old high production quality anime is the saving grace. The plot has too many errors to be 10/10.

And FMAB. Its generic shounen. Atleast its shorter than Naruto or One Piece, but still.

For me, there's no doubt that it'd have to be One Piece.

I only got so far into the anime before denouncing it as another bad series. I was egged on to read the manga however, as it was apparently superior. But yet again, I had to drop it due to how atrociously bad and tedious it became.

By chapter 333, I got so tired that I gave up once and for all, never really thinking about it since. So I wondered, what are some titles others think are overrated? I'd love to hear your opinions!


One Punch Man. Everything about it was disappointing. Dumb ass character designs, annoying main character, nothing about it was interesting it was all basic. Even Divine Gate was better than that shit.

My Hero Academia... First season was good, second was meh but third is bad(IMHO). I will not drop third season because I want to complete it but I will probably not watch fourth season.

Characters are really annoying. Deku is crybaby, Bakugo needs a good beating to fix his behavior....

About Deku being a crybaby/not being confident. I think it was justified. He was treated badly by his peers like Bakugo until he joined U.A. High School, so his lack of self-confidence is believable.

Clannad, I don't know if it's any good or if it's the masterpiece everybody says it is, I don't care, god, I mean those fking big eyes!

So you're saying it without even knowing what it's like? You haven't even watched it?


No, I haven't. Yes, it's a shallow reason, but I know I couldn't watch it however much I try.

I dunno. I found it to be a pretty funny satirical take on a lot of popular anime. The way the enemies went on and on about powering up to their "super special moves" and how Saitama was a chump was more or less a direct piss take of DBZ and although I love DBZ I quite enjoyed the show poking fun at it because as an adult I realise now how daft it was with all it's power levels and entire episodes spent "powering up".

I can see why some folk wouldn't like it though, because it is literally pure satire.

Also, Saitama is my avatar picture because I also have a shaven head and can kill anyone with one punch. I jest! I have a full head of hair! I jest again...you see where I'm going with this ;)

I mentioned Death Note earlier in a separate post but I notice you rated it fairly highly (according to your list). I won't re-hash what I said because you can just look on the last page but I'd be interested to hear your opinions on it.

For me it boiled down to too much forced exposition and massive leaps of logic/use of deus ex machinas to move the story forward.

I also agree that posting just a list without any comments is boring :) Might as well hear someones thoughts on one show instead of just a list a mile long.

About Death Note, it is a show I haven't seen for years and my memory of it is very hazy now. To be honest I am not sure I would like it so much if I re-watched it now.

My Opinions

Seven Deadly Sins: Can't stand the horrible art and horrible backgrounds i dropped it before the opening played

Twin Star Exorcists: Watched 5 episodes of it and found it very boring. Characters are too cliche, boring story, boring fights, and the protagonist whines way too much in my opinion it's more annoying than JP Asta

No Game No Life - I hated every second of that show.

AnoHaha - I didn't necessarily hate it, but it is quite possibly the most worthless show I've ever seen. I didn't give a fuck about anything or anybody. The OP is great though.

Grand Blue - So unfunny it actually hurt to watch.

Steins;Gate 0 - Take everything that made the original great and throw it out the window. Steins;Gate 0 is painfully slow, boring, and ugly. People give Shinji Ikari crap all the time for being whiny, but why aren't people complaining about Okabe in Steins;Gate 0? He was easily the best part about the original for me but they completely ruined his character.

White Album 2 - It's got some of the worst and most unlikable characters I've ever seen in any anime. The character designs and the show as a whole are also ugly as hell. This is one of very few anime where I shouted at my TV screen in anger. This show blows.

Yuri On Ice and Banana Fish - I think that if this Shows didn't have Yaoi people wouldn't have even cared about them.

Welcome to the NHK - The MC is Cringy as Fuck and I know he will probably redeem himself later but I just can't stand him (More of a Problem with the Character than with the Show TBH. The rest is decent).

Kimi no Na wa - I Don't hate it but I do think that there are better Drama Filled Anime Movies Out there.

One Piece - The One Pice Anime Has a LOT of Pacing and Animation Issues. This is What Happens When You try to make a Mostly Filler Free Long Running Shonen.
