I love Hetallia and even I think it might be a tad over rated

Studio Sunrise is disturbingly overrated. Screw Gundam (all of them), screw Code Geass and screw Cowboy Bebop.

Bleach and SAO get my votes. I've had plenty of people come to me saying they're on the same level as the likes of Death Note and FMAB, which is ridiculous.

Trash... I only like watching the AMVs for this series, overall, I call it trash.

Dear god, such an overrated series it's not even funny, and it's so terrible too... try watching an episode or two without falling asleep.

SAO. Good lord this anime had SO many "wtf" moments in it. Here are some of the larger flaws I saw;

  1. Asuna was introduced as an independent badass chick who could keep up with Kirito, but only a few episodes in she completely falls for Kirito for w/e reason, and is turned into a housewife dependant on Kirito. Act 2 goes further and makes her the overarching damsal in distress. What happened to her being a badass?!
  2. Kirito has got to be one of the blandest anime characters I have ever seen.
  3. Why does EVERY female have to fall for Kirito, then disappear? It is a fact that Kirito chose Asuna from the start. A harem only works if we don't know who the main character will end up with, if anyone at all.
  4. Yui popped out of freaking nowhere to be their "child", and only served as a plot device.
  5. Kirito never actually has to become stronger, as he starts at max in BOTH MMOs because of him being a beta tester in the first one, and "reasons" for the second.

At least the visuals are nice.

Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online, One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, and Kill la Kill - I still loved them even if they are overrated.

Shingeki no Kyojin, Naruto, FMA, One Piece, Sword Art Online...

  • Attack on Titan
  • FMA: Brotherhood
  • Berserk film trilogy
  • Rebuild of Evangelion film series
  • Clannad After Story
  • Steins;Gate (do like it, but I'm baffled that folks on MAL and ANN are voting for it among their Top 10. It's far from that for me)
  • Code Geass (both seasons)
  • Gundam SEED

Thank God someone else thinks both Shingeki no Kyojin and FMAB are overrated. The fanbase is ridiculous in my opinion. They're good series but nothing I haven't seen done better.

Amen, it's overrated. I still enjoy it. In our best anime series of 2013, most users voted for Kill la Kill and Attack on Titan. Can't wait to see the results for this year. I'm currently working on the Gdocs with sickVisionz for both manga and anime. sick told me I was crazy do the manga thing again considering how many manga series are there.

It will a fun contest.

I'm looking forward to it too. I'm involved with more series than last year.

Attack on Titan is the most overrated bs I have even seen. That and Sword Art Online.

Cowboy Bebop. I continue to see dozens of fans of this series claiming it to be a masterpiece, but I honestly can't get into it...it just seems so...unoriginal to me...

Gintama. I couldnt get into it, it's just so...weird. Not One Piece weird, but still weird. IDK why so many people find it so great, to be honest.

(Takes deep breath and prepares to get torn to shreds) Gurren Lagen...I know I'm gonna get a lot of hate for saying this, but it's just not my kind of anime. It just doesnt capture my interest and I don't really find the characters to be as unique and lovable as many put them out to be...sorry.
