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


Yes, i would want just give a fast opinion, an example of an anime that i liked more and dont happened the same hype (of romance).


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.


Agree in parts, but about "keep with shounen\action" anime i have to disagree, when you like a lot of a genre, when you compare the "equal animes" of you favorite genre with another of other genre, the anime of you favorite genre will have an advantage, but this will change of people to people. Even so, an anime that i think to deserve 10, even beeing of the genre that i like very few(terror for example), is still 10, its a good experience. I like of new experiences, even i've watched a lot of shounens\action anime, that dont say much thing, some of my favorites animes for example are Steins Gate, Showa Genroku Rakugo and Death Note. However i think i have a problem with romances, i like more of romance when a "secondary" genre of the anime than the primary, generally i think the animes of romance a such cliche, but maybe this is a problem of me with the genre, even so i like some romance's animes so much, for example: sakamichi no apollon and clannad.


^ 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.


I generally try ignore the hype too, but i can watch few animes and i have MAL like a reference to chose wich animes i will watch on the season, In that case, an anime on the top 10 and above of my favorite anime, even that dont be better to me than my favorites animes, that let me hyped for at the minimum have a high technical quality, whats happened about the visual and soundtrack, but just on it, that's will variate of people to people and very probably its my fault to create a big hype.


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 felt the same thing


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 know that is just a ranking and not the true of quality, but i have MAL like a reference to watch anime and in the majority of the times I just see the average for start a watch an anime or not, because we have a lot of animes and not too much time. When i saw Kimi no nawa on 2th place i create i big hype, but, for be a romance and a movie that i'm not used to watch i remain disappointed, probably its my fault.

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".


Did something good happen to you today? I wont go into details but I thought the show was amazing and saw it before it got its international acclaim. I thought it was amazing then and think its fantastic still. Enough so that I bought the Blu ray disk, and I dont normally buy bluray/dvd unless I think its really good. Also so assert that people are bandwagon jumpers or "weebs" for liking a film is frankly insulting and UN-merited. You dont strike me as the type of person to be so vindictive so I will assume you were simply in a bad mood and careless with your words. Please refrain from slandering others because you disagree with their opinions.

Wow way to miss characterize what I said, did you actually even read it? Secondly what are you my mother? So how about you not take everything on the internet personally and refrain from reading my posts unless they are directed at you since you obviously are just looking for a fight.

Not looking for a fight at all. However from the highlighted section it looks to me as if your of the opinion that if people thought the film was great they are "bandwagon jumpers." I find it disturbing when people judge others because their tastes differ. Your free to discuss with me how I mis-read it if you like, or just ignore me. The choice is yours. However after re-reading your post(and without knowing your thought process) my impression of what your intention was remains.

Please just ignore me, I don't have the time or desire to try to explain something when it is obvious. Like I said you're just being obtuse to start a fight or get on your high horse or whatever...

Overrated? I might say that, but does it matter? At least to me, no. I loved it. It's also ranked pretty high in MAL, with that being in the second place. Well worth it.
