The overrated ones look about right.

I don't think Madhouse, I.G and JC are underrated though.

The most underrated studios imo would be Gonzo and Nomad. Perhaps Hoods Ent. as well, they have some awesome animation and artwork quality even if their shows were mostly on a crappy side.

Shaft is a very love-it-or-hate-it studio. Go to the News section on here and look at any thread involving an anime made by Shaft. 80% of the comments are from people who are sold on the show simply because it's Shaft.

Overrated has to be SHAFT.
There is only one SHAFT anime that I like and that is Madoka...everything else I don't care about.

Underrated has to be GONZO and DEEN.
I fail to see why people hate DEEN so much, they made some good anime. (Angel's Egg, Trust and Betrayel, Patlabor OVA, Hell Girl and etc...)
Also GONZO...the old GONZO made awesome anime (Welcome to the NHK!, Bokurano, Speed Grapher, Last Exile to some examples) until after 2007.

I think Brains Base don't quite get the acclaim they deserve. Baccano, Mawaru Penguindrum, Durarara, Spice & Wolf, Natsume Yuujinchou and Kuragehime were all pretty great shows. The only one I've seen that didn't impress me much was Kamisama Dolls and I think I can blame that on the original material, not the way they handled it.

Madhouse is considered by many to be the best studio, I don't think it's underrated.

Let's see. Overrated: P.A Works.

Underrated: Brains Base.

Aside from the fact that I thought decently of SZS, yeah, I concur. SHAFT's usual style often detracts from what is otherwise good material so it's no surprise that the only anime I really loved from them was Madoka partly due to Shinbo's artistic ego not getting in the way of good storytelling. The eccentricities were used sparingly and had a point as far as PMMM goes.

Nobody is denying what Deen and Gonzo have accomplished in the past but the mentality toward any brand in a business is always what have you done for me lately?

Wrong wrong wrong.

Popular studio + Makes decent anime = not overrated

non-pop + makes crappy anime = not underrated

Overrated: P.A. Works. The work that I've seen them do (Another, Tari Tari, Angel Beats!) aren't all that great in terms of both story and artwork imo.
Underrated: Honestly, I'd say J.C. Staff. The hate that this studio gets is absurd and the fact that people are practically blaming J.C. for having to switch VA's because the original VA got pregnant (J.C. got her pregnant ofc) is so stupid. Their works aren't always complete shit, and it's pathetic to see so much hate against them.

my issiues with madhouse is there not independert he; there no even down bt another anime studio there owned by a telcoms company so money they make is not anime Industry money cost only aout 2-6% goes to them the rest gos to stock holders so the peearnt company people say the indusrey is loosing money its not it just lost one of the biggest earner id say if the loss of mad house as a fully inderpendant studio lost the indursy around 1/8 of its total over all overheard income

using the idea that anime makes $3-4 billion a year [ after taxes and what not ] to loose almost 13% of that is not good is it


sorry to bore you with this but the madhouse you thinking of is dead so it cannot be underated or overared it died in 2007

Over rated = shaft. Don't get me wrong, they make some good things. No doubt about that. I just do not think they are anywhere near as good as some people say.

No idea about under rated though.

Overrated: Kyoani. All that pretty animation isn't used up to its full potential considering most series done are just slice of life (did Hyouka really need all those pretty visuals?). Now, if that animation budget went to animating the next season of Full Metal Panic, my rating of them will rise significantly.

Underrated: I dunno, Deen? Granted, Higurashi had bad animation, but they did make Kore wa Zombie desu ka? and Unlimited Blade Works.

A lot of the time overrated tends to just be another word for popular or well received. Wouldn't look too much into it.

Shaft is overrated as usual due to viewers looking at the unique visual style. In my opinion it just ruins the anime

Their works are popular with great ratings. Despite their animation and effort being lacking.

I wish the rights to DB belonged to other studio.

Overrated: SHAFT. When the only thing you make is Monogatari and clones of Monogatari and people still love you, well... Yeah, their stuff in the past few years just ain't interesting (bar Madoka). People criticise KyoAni for only making moe girls doing moe shit. Why don't people criticise SHAFT for making what could be interesting characters do nothing at all?

Underrated: David Production. Well I guess they're a bit more well known nowadays because of Jojo, but apart from that, no one seems to pay attention to any of their other stuff, all of which are actually somewhat interesting and one of which is Book of Bantorra which is fuckin' awesome.

Dunno 'bout others, but for me MadHouse lives up to it's praise. Almost all of my favorite anime were made by them.

Chousouku Henkei Gyrozetter will change that opinion of yours, despite it is a solid production in itself. A-1 Pictures's anime do excel in visuals, though.

Back to the topic,
Overrated: So far, haven't seen any yet.
Underrated: TMS (a lot of underrated anime) & OLM (dismissed for animating game adaptations regardless of the actual quality).
Nothing is bad for being in any genre or demographic, especially anime for kids.

I like some shows from both studio's but most of the stuff that most of them pump out is just garbage

Underrated: Bee Train
Though not everything they have produced is good, most of the stuff that has come out by them is at least decent and they still get hardly any recognition especially in the West.

Underrated: Madhouse. Seriously their works are beyond epic yet they hardly get SOME rec. Not enough though.

Pierrot is a great studio but it always gets shitty source material.
