@othus12:

lol DBZ is not overrated... It has created a new genre of anime that's why it's famous...

One Piece the anime is overrated, it just can't live up to the manga at all.

Underrated anime include Samurai Seven, Blood+, Full Metal Panic etc etc

@redbird3rdboywonder:

Then please recommend me some pre DBZ anime with 5+ episodes long 1on1 / 2on1 fights, powerups and powerlevels (like chakra in Naruto or furyoku in Shaman King, etc)...

Overrated: Dragon Ball Z, Elfen Lied, Code Gease, Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Hetalia.

I'm not sure if it's popular enough to be considered overrated, but Gundam Seed was ridicoulously boring and the lamest Mecha anime I've seen yet.

Underrated: Claymore, Full Metal Panic, Nadia: Secrets of Blue Water

@indifferentmrh: That's what makes it overrated. We don't need boring, takes 5 episodes of screaming and powering up to make a good anime, yet now most people think so.

Why so many people think DBZ is overrated?

If you ask for anime recommendations most people will say Eflen Lied, Death Note and other mainstream series that are nowhere close to DBZ in terms of everything except animation and the number of kawaii girls and boys...

@8000not9000: Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Personally, I never cared much for DBZ, but do I find it to be overrated? Not at all.

I don't think DBZ was overrated, it was pretty damn awesome as far as I can remember. I liked DBZ Kai more though since they cut out all the BS.

I always thought Elfen Lied and FLCL were overrated. I don't think they're bad or anything, but they just didn't satisfy me beyond any average/decent anime.

Underrated, though it's only part anime, Oban Star-Racers.

Overrated, is Neon Genesis Evangelion. It's still good, but gets more attention than it deserves (probably because of the endings) and it can get boring sometimes with the same keyframe used for several minutes. MINUTES. Then previous works by Anno have been overshadowed by it (Nadia: Secrets of Blue Water & Gunbuster/Diebuster, both of which I have mentioned earlier).

@MarioRedfield:

And Naruto sucks, just saying.
