I was a lot hyped to watch Kimi no na wa because of it reviews and score on MAL, but i just watched it and i wonder "its that? its that the 10/10 and best movie of romance that the people was talking about?". I liked of the sound and art, but the history was something like 7/10 or 8/10, the characters weren't so good. Maybe the hype that i create before to watch have disturbed a little my experience with the anime, but even so, i just dont get believe that this anime be in the second place on the top of animes in MAL, a such animes better, Koe no Katachi for example, is really better than this to me. What do you all think about this?

Sorry if i have done grammar mistakes i'm just learning english

Koe no Katachi is barely better then it imo it's up to subjective opinion.

A lot of shows could be called overrated though it doesn't mean that they are. I liked Kimi no Na wa and also liked Koe no Katachi and feel they deserve their high ratings.

First of all whats rated best is always in the eye of the beholder. There are alot of people who didnt even think it was decent. However a large worldwide audience felt it was well done in almost all aspects and left a lifelong impression upon them. personally I would rate Koe No Katachi right up there with Kimi No Na Wa. That said I thought shows like "5cm per second" and "Spirited Away" were terrible. Its all in personal taste. I took the time to view your MAL list...

First of all you have only logged 49 anime so your either new or haven't logged much. That said based on what you have watched and how you rated it(since CR doesn't display such ratings) this show was never going to appeal to you. Taking a look at what you rated 8+(which oddly is almost everything) you would likely be better served keeping to shounen/action anime. Perhaps in time after you have watched more anime and your tastes widen you will find a greater appeal for Kimi no na wa. On a side note if you didn't like Kimi no na wa you probably wont like Nagi no asukara(lull in the sea) just a fair warning.

Haven't seen it myself but i trust Otaking and respect Shinkai, i like his films for the reason why he creates them nothing more nothing less but personally Children Who Chase Lost Voices is the only movie of his i would call good, i did like The Garden of Words but it falls flat on presenting a finished story like all of his films, i also haven't seen the ever famous 5 Centimeters Per Second but i have seen everything else. I think i will watch 5cm sometime soon since i'm still highly interested.

Hype trains never effect me either way i watch something with the same mindset regardless of it is what it is and stick to that.

I'd say Kimi No Na Wa has ascended to the level of Miyazaki in that respect. As good or great as it is, there's pretty much no way it could ever exist as the perfect, godlike experience that some people have ascribed to it. And for people coming into watching it now there's basically no way your own viewing experience won't be impacted by that. You're not watching it in a relative vacuum any more, you're watching it in the middle of all of the expectations and hype that everyone else has heaped on it.

^ agree with StriderShinryu

This is the problem you run into once the hype-train has been running full steam for so long. Expectations go beyond anything realistically attainable. It's why I've learned over the years to ignore the "hype" and realize that if something has attracted so much positive praise it's worth giving a shot but go in with my anticipation dialed down as far as I can so I'll have a chance to enjoy it for what it is rather than what I expect it to be.

Heck, with Kimi No Na Wa I think I was more excited to finally see an anime in a theater than I was to see the actual movie.

It was a bit overrated. I thought it was amazing, but I thought it dragged on a bit at the end. I thought it should have ended and then it just kept going...

I sat their and I was like "That was a good ending!" And then it kept going and then I was like "Okay they are going to stop it there right?" And it went again, and finally after the third time it ended. It just dragged on and on and on. They really couldn't figure out when to end the movie.

I had the same reaction "that's it?" Reading reviews though, you'll find the themes of the film (which I honestly didn't get) were much more relevant to and resonated more with native Japanese viewers than people outside the country. With that being said I think the hype it has received "outside" of Japan has been a joke because not once have I heard anyone who claims to love it mention those same themes that made it so popular in Japan. So in my opinion they're just a bunch of bandwagon jumpers (weebs would be too harsh I think) who think "everyone in Japan thinks it's great so I think it's great too".

Not sure what the definition of over rated means when an Anime goes to movie theater its different than just making it based on Toykyo TV ratings. Its needs publicity and exposure and frankly I think last year was a great year for movies in theater with No Name and my favorite Silent Voice and One more nobody talks about-In this Corner of the World

Ahh, the beauty of subjectivity. As a basic rule of thumb, it’s pretty hard to claim something is “overrated” when you look at an aggregate score; it’s actually rated high.

I saw it in February, after a lot of the hype, and I expected it to be underwhelming, but I actually found it satisfying.

Between last year and this year, there are only two other things I'd say that about - TouRabu Hanamaru and Magi4, so yeah, I have high/specific standards...

Do I think it deserves to be rated that highly? No, but it was surprisingly deep and coherent for a modern work.

Also, as a romance... can people stop arguing about canonicity of pairings if they think that pairing is canon? Because there are a lot of canon pairings - particularly M/M pairings - that have more romantic contact than them, that don't get acknowledged as canon...

Agree with everything there, except Spirited Away isn't terrible, just average.
