I have to agree with you about NGE.

Like I picked up the series way back when ADV was brining them out on VHS tape for the first time. Currently i am thinking whether or not the series was REALLY that good. Especailly that I have only actaully sat down at watched the entire series ONCE. Meanwhile i have some other stuff on that I have purchase on DVD as my VHS tapes are warn out due to multiple rewatches.

NGE might of been the be all and end all of all shows. However I have found every little rewatch value in that show.


Gundam Seed was another series that I found that was hyped up. Especially considering that is a moderisation and retelling of the orginal Gundam Series.

Gungam, for ages I have heard about how great Gundam was, Z, Wing, seed etc... So I got the first DVD of Seed. Well I can't see where all the fuss is about, it was just plain. and by the last ep on the DVD I was bored to tears

I agree with NGE as overrated from what I remember of it, but that isn't all that much... I also agree with Gundam being overrated but I've only seen Wing.

Something I really thought was overrated was SaiKano, or She or what ever you want to call it. I'd read heaps of really good reviews about it and all this stuff about it being the anime of the year. I saw the first half and thought it was ok, kinda depressing but I didn't really mind that. Then I saw the rest of it and I could barely sit through an episode because it was so bad. And the ending really sucks too.

On the other hand; something I'd heard almost nothing about at all but has turned out to be one of the best new anime series I've seen for a while is Paranoia Agent. I'm only half way through but I already love it. It's really strange but really entertaining at the same time. I just hope the ending doesn't ruin it for me.

It's not a particular anime fault for being overrated. It's yours.

Take that!

Gundam Wing was not homoerotic enough. It wasn't anything enough. I'm bored even thinking about it. Yawn.

I agree, the whole Gundam series is as dull as death.
However, my vote would would have to go to Final Fantasy Unlimited. What a pointless PoC! Evil or Very Mad

Question: how can you judge a 50 episode show on 4 episodes? That's like... judging the Star Wars saga based on Episode 1. Razz

You shouldn't, but people still do it. Although another way to look at it is if the series wasn't compelling enough to begin with to maintain the viewer's attention, then the series fails overall.

Again, you can't blame a particular series or film because of your misconception. It's your fault you were disappointed.

I tend to appreciate shows for what they are.

Here! Here!

Personally I don't think that I've ever seen a show that I have disliked due to hype or that I thought was over-hyped. Yes NGE did get alot of hype, but thats more due to what it did with Christianity and the ground that it broke in general than anything else. Personally I thought that it was a great series and I do rewatch it whenever I have the opportunity.

Cowboy Bebop is also another series that has alot of hype surrounding it (most of it deserved I might add) and yet it was still good and enjoyable. Rurouni Kenshin is another in the long line of anime that have alot of hype attached to them. But hype or not if you don't like the show then you don't like it. Period.

For me, it's Voices of a Distant Star. Every review I read (and I've read many) gave it a high mark, but when I finished it, I was like, "What? That's it?"

When I first watched Gundam SEED, I'd say it was overhyped, but after the 3rd dvd, it started to get a lot better. In the end it wasn't overhyped much, but the first eps are sucky.

I can say without thinking bad about the following overrated shows:
Lain
Berserk
Oh My Goddess and its movie

Pretty average in the end.

Gundam Wing - thought it would be good but it bored me to death.
Evangelion - only because everyone kept on about it and it became overhyped.
Initial D - too much car stuff for my liking.

Dragon Ball Z- I think that this anime is silly, with no real plot or anything, I know a lot of people like it (or used to) but I believe there is better anime out there than this. It is, in my opinion, highly overrated.

But, on the other hand, I guess you gotta start somewhere.

I'm sure that the regulars of this Board can just guess what I'm going to say.

I found FLCL to be a bit of a turkey as well.

And these'd be Madman's clues to release some Gundam that is actually good.

But for secondmouse: I doubt that you even know what a Newtype is.

What have newtypes (in Gundam) got to do with whether it's a overrated show or not? Confused

Flaming me doesn't alter the fact that I still feel Gundam is overrated. Whilst I respect your right to disagree with me, I'm just sorry you feel the need to attack me over it. Sad

Your knowledge of this fact gauges whether or not you deserve to have an opinion on the "whole" Gundam Series.

I'd Post the Big List™ but I'd probably just be wasting my time.

I'd respond to that by posting my own list but I smell troll... so... isn't it lovely day. Very Happy

Which anime do you think is overrated?

THIS THREAD IS BORING AND REDUNDANT. Mad

Whinge here.

Now time for my rant. I just don't get why people find the need to discuss what they don't like. Rolling Eyes Come to think of it, I do - it's to prop up your own ego by reassuring yourself that other people have the same beliefs you do.

I challenge anyone to post anything beyond "I found it boring" or "It was average", which is usually about the limit of these threads. TELL ME WHY, BEYOND WHAT YOUR "OPINION" IS!
