Simple, title says it all, post animes you find overrated. Oh and don't turn this into a flame thread, this is all opinion based. Mine are:

  • Blood +
  • Hellsing
  • Montecristo
  • One Piece
  • Bleach
  • Inuyasha

Totally agree. I really don't see what's so interesting about it.

I agree with Inyuasha, all my friends freaking loved that show when it was first out in America but I just failed to see what was so exciting about it. I mean I tried to get into it to see what they thought was so cool, but I just found it boring...

I'm with PureRok on thinking that Death Note is totally overrated. I mean, it's good, but it's nowhere near as clever as it thinks it is. It sets up this awesome debate about the true meaning of justice, and then kinda just falls into this increasingly unlikely cat-and-mouse game that kinda starts to feel like the author wanking. "Look how awesome I am! I can get out of this really crazy maze that I built all by myself!..."

Phenomenal characters, though, and I love Obata-sensei's art.

Inuyasha is over rated.

Naruto is kind of overrated, it accomplishes what it sets out, and it's not the popularity I mind, but it's not a deep show, sorry.

FMA: While it's really good, it's not the best thing ever. Same can be said for Death Note.

Miyazaki: If his movies weren't the same damn thing everytime...

Naruto, Inuyasha, and Bleach. I'd lump all of these series into the same category and being more kid targeted and lacking any real depth. Although the same argument has been made (even in this post) for DBZ, it was the first and the most hard-edged, and I almost feel like each of these series are trying to be "the next" DBZ.

I will agree with everyone who has said Naruto. I tried watching it but after hearing Naruto say 'Believe it!' eighty times within four episodes I was ready to throw something large and heavy towards my television just to get the little sod to STFU!

Other series that I think are vastly over rated: Evangelion and Blood+

I'm sure there are others but I haven't been awake nearly long enough to think of them.

Your mother is so fat even Naruto doesn't believe it!

Anyway, I agree with everyone that said Naruto, Bleach, Inuyasha, and FMA. That being said I also think Code Geass is overrated, especially the second season. And the show I feel to be the most overrated is TTGL.

The fact that it has a totally badass main character doesn't take the mediocrity away >_>

Hmm...let me see. First, the story is a boring, convulted mess that is pretty uninteresting most of the time, though i have to admit that the action sequences are pretty well done. The characters (except for Alucard, whom the show relies too much on to make something interesting) are just as boring an uninteresting. It just tries to be more than it actually is, and that's a boring show with vampires shooting and killing other creatures, i guess the word i'm looking for is "pretentious".
