Haruhi = over-rated and boring?
Nah, the anime deserves the attention it gets. Not over-rated and not boring at all. There's a reason why it's my favorite anime.^_^

Over-rated = Naruto, Bleach, Shakugan no Shana, and Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni (didn't like it for some reasons)

Under-rated = Hayate no Gotoku! (one of the best anime out there) and Black Cat.

That's all I guess

Am not gone say anything about series like Naruto, Bleach or One piece because if they are overrated is a matter of perception. For some they are amazing for others not so much. Is a matter of taste. I will only say about Pokemon witch is a stupid no brain, no real scenario bullshit that for some strange reason is known every ware in the world.

Now in the underrated i will say D.Gray Man that is as good as the other shounen big series but not as famous. Blood+ witch is a classic value like Full Metal Alchemist(different style off cource) but not recognized by everyone and Busou Renkin a not very famous but good shounen series.

Overrated

Code Geass - While I understand why people enjoy this show neither season deserves to be as high as they are on here. I would touch upon that more, but at this point I think I would be thrashing a deceased equine by doing so.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Again, I can understand why people enjoy this. I too dabbled in laughing at lolis killing each other with terrible animation. Yet the series enjoys an 8.59 rating on MAL? Even if I ignore the animation, the contorted, silly storylines, and the amount of time wasted on exposition I still can't see anything worth rating that highly.

Rebuild of Evangelion: 1.0 YOU ARE (NOT) ALONE - Admittedly I am a rather big EVA fan, but I cannot understand why this film is ranked in the Top 30. Sure it's nice that there was actually an EVA remake with some new animation for once I guess, but for the most part this was basically just the first 6 episodes of the TV series with very little new or interesting added. What makes that worse is that the first 4 episodes are probably the worst part of the series.

Underrated

Millennium Actress - All of Satoshi Kon's films are underrated on MAL for whatever reason (and seem to lack viewers as well), but since I consider this the best of his works I find it to be the most underrated. While most turn to Ghibli films when attempting to convert someone to anime I think this and Tokyo Godfathers are just as good if not better choices. This especially is a much more mature piece of animation than most and has a lot of heart while still retaining the qualities that make people love anime. Watching Chiyoko's life story told through the films she has starred in not only makes for some exciting and beautiful scenes, but it also leaves the viewer wondering what happened in reality and what is just part of a fictional story. So give this film some more love MAL users.

Shigurui - This series is a lot more than most can handle and it's easy to get distracted from the real point of it, but when it comes to a good historic depiction of samurai rather than the romanticized versions you see everywhere I doubt there are many series as good as this one. While I'm not going to advocate watching it since if you can't handle or don't like this kind of thing there's no way you're going to see what makes it such a good show I definitely feel this should be rated higher than it is.

Dennou Coil, Seirei no Moribito, Kino's Journey, Gankutsuou, Mononoke, and Kaiba - While it may seem kind of silly to say series in the Top 60 on here are underrated I can't help but feel these six need to be mentioned. They're all Top 20 Anime or very close to it for me (from what I've seen mind you) and I think they could all really use more viewers. Kino has the most at 5,909 which doesn't seem so bad until you notice series like FMA with 28,199 and Haruhi with 23,508. So, much like Kon's films, I ask MAL users to give them a chance.

Over-hated

Lucky Star - I never got all of the hate for this show. I'm pretty sure it's well documented as being an otaku-centric comedy that relies more on talking about/making fun of subjects rather than slapstick and gags like most comedy anime. So unless you watched it right when it first came out you should've known exactly what to expect from it.

This anime can't be overrated.

Or you understand but you hate religious stuff combined with mecha. Everyone has a right to like or dislike what they see. It's not the point of understanding or not, look at some people who do not know English very well, they rate their anime with a score of seven, eight, nine, TEN. Even if a guy who doesn't understand a thing in NGE, but rates it with 10 just because of the action that would make him look like he's uber smart and he understood everything?

This anime can't be overrated.

Even if I could work out what the hell was going on at the end, I still wouldn't give it a higher rating than I did (6/10), because it's so utterly boring when it gpes into its psychoanalysis mode (not to mention the show's rather jarring moments where it attempts to be funny).

Most overrated anime ever: Naruto, then Haruhi, probably after that Bleach and Lucky Star. Unfortunately, also Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. Which is strange, since it isn't licensed.

Fullmetal Alchemist may be as well, I am not sure and will have a stance as I get further into it.

Underrated: Real Drive. :(

Probably Gintama, too, most people don't even know what it is. Also Moyashimon, Oh Edo Rocket and Cromartie High School.

Overrated Shows(my opinions, no offence!!!):

Azumanga Daioh.. Just stupidity...worst of all time...

History's strongest disciple Kenichi.. a terrible remake of DBZ.. beat the strong guy, then comes the stronger one... fight the stronger, beat him.. then here is the much stronger..fight him... noo not yet, here com-..bla bla...(DBZ, when considered the time it was produced, was a great success and still a fine anime, btw^^)

Cromartie High School... dont know.. i most probably watched the censored version of it, namely dvd xD it was AS BAD AS Azu...

Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya... an average anime, not bad, somewhat original, but thats all, really...

TTGL... boosted with the good artwork, buuut in the end, nothing more, a decent storyline, predictible plot, characters and so on...

Code Geass R2.. it is just a dishonor to the first season, almost nothing is what its supposed to be, odd flow, ridiculous twists and character developments etc...

5 Centimeters per Second... first chapter is good but the last two are just excrescent, lol XD

And here are the other honorable mentions for the overrated stuff: XD Darker than Black, Devil May Cry, Slam Dunk(incredibly repetitive!!!), Stranger - Mukoh Hadan(meh!), Vampire Knight etc...

I will just make a list of the anime series i find really underrated and wont write why i think this way, since i start writing about sth i love, i have a tendency to drag it on forever XD, here is the list of the underrated stuff:

FATE/STAY NIGHT
Toshokan Sensou
Detroit Metal City
Ryoko's Case File
Prince of Tennis

Most overrated show? Any show that spawns a rabid fanbase that's unwilling to listen to criticism, and generally overreact to the slightest hint of disagreement of their opinion with trolling, net abuse, threats of violence, etc, etc

NOTE: We may have actually enjoyed the show more if it wasn't for idiots like them.

Most underrated show? Any show that is actually good, but doesn't get the recognition it deserves because of the whining, argumentative, petty, and just plain annoying behaviour of the unwashed, chinless, bucktoothed, god errors mentioned above

As for actual shows...

Examples of overrated shows - Death Note, NGE, Haruhi, Naruto, Bleach, Lucky Star, Code Geass, TTGL, etc, etc, etc...

I actually like some of those shows, but I'm honest enough to admit that they're overrated as well :)

Examples of underrated shows - Renkin San-kyuu Magical? Pokaan, Yoshinaga-san`chi no Gargoyle, Perfect Blue, Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight, Shion no Ou, Real Drive, Himitsu, Flanders no Inu, Barefoot Gen, Steamboy, Roujin Z, Moyashimon, etc, etc, etc...

There's a whole host of shows out there that get virtually no recognition, even though they're often better than the standard fare everyone seems to enjoy watching. The big irony is that, in the past 13 pages of this thread, I've seen very few shows listed as underrated that weren't already well known.

Such a shame that many of you are still overlooking the hidden gems...

What a day! What a lovely Day!

Most people watch it within the first 5 anime of their life, therefore, they rate it highly, but you're kind of late and don't apparently think that much of it.

Overrated Stuff:

Shakugan No Shana - indeed, Shana is amazing, but everything else just sucks! Everything aside from her is plain boring standard...
Trigun - it's okay, but I never got into the hype thing. The characters are not interesting at all (except from Wolfwood, of course! ;)) and especially Milly and Meryl really are a pain in the neck.
NGE - it's the most fucking overrated anime in the whole wo...but...wait...it has Misato and Rei...damn! Forget about this here! The hype is completely reasonable! XD
Noir - aside from the great music, this offers nothing. The fighting scenes are all the same and not entertaining at all.
Gantz - after offering a very nice concept this series degenerates into a self-repeating disappointing piece of crap. And the ending really sucks. Someone told me that the Manga is much better, but I won't buy it.

Underrated Stuff:
Nothing. Here at MAL there are so many idiots who give only 7-10 ratings (and 7 when the anime really sucked) so that even the worst series have almost the same average than the really good ones. Come on, we have a 1-10 rating system, you morons! ;P
