Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

I'll probably get hung for saying it, but I couldn't get past the first 2 episodes. I don't get the big deal with it at all. It just wasn't LOL funny.

Inu-yasha

Way too damn long! Dragged on like Pokemon. Sad to see Rumiko sink so low.

And now for the one I'll definitely be found in a dark alley for...

Mobile Suit Gundam

Sure, one can argue it started the mecha craze, but it has not stood the test of time.

were i agree it has a good story but i think the reason it is being overrated and failing is where in the didnt even really advance the realtionship between inyu and kigomay. Really any at all

I wonder if they will ever make a second series, all the things they said at the end, evidence, and rumors point to yes, but, there was never an official statement, but if you notice, at the end of the last credits, they mention continuing the journey, implying more will eventually be made, my theory is they took a break to make the movies they made after it but will eventually resume it, but that may just be me

god help us if they make anymore inuyasha anythings......

On the back of my DVD where they advertise the reviews it says"Neon Genesis Evangelion was anime's perfect storm. It's a phenomenon like Star Wars, Harry Potter or The Matrix. Plently of works are going to reproduce it, but ultimately it will stand apart."-Ain't it cool news

That is just the impression I get when I hear people explain why EVA is the best anime ever. Its true that it did influence a lot of anime mainly because it had "Biblical prophecy, human drama and blistering hi-tech battle action." Still, It wasn't the first anime to have human drama. Grave of the fireflies was a good example of human drama. IMO I think that in a lot of ways Grave of tehe Fireflies is better than EVA. The "blistering action" wasn't all that great. I don't know if there were any anime before EVA with biblical prophecy though, but the theories were really bizarre and it was set place in a time that we are living in now and that wasn't that far from when it was first created. Most of all, I think EVA was overrated because the dialogue didn't really appeal to me all the time. "I musn't run away, I mustn't run away, I mustn't run away....." was really annoying. Random, unnecessary stuff were added to be comical which was too much of a drastic change for me. First, they talk about angels being an alternate form that humans could have taken, then they change it up with Shinji suffocating to death when Asuka forced to him to kiss her. It just seemed a bit overrated to say that it was the best anime ever. Also, the atmosphere felt that it should have been in a more dark society, but maybe the fact that it isn't is a statement on its own.

I got another one.

Fate/Stay Night

Maybe it was because I didn't follow the games, but it started off slower then a turtle. Then it thrust everything at you around the 3rd episode. I hear the fights get good, but I can't force myself to get to them.

I think its overrated because of the HUGE gaps in power. He can make a metal bar strong one second then can make a sword out of nothing the next. I also think that the protagonist was a but of a chauvanist. I still loved saber as the most endearing heroine of all time. I wouldn't say Fate/ Stay Night was "overrated" I would say that it had a lot of potential and they screwed it up. Everyone wants to see a bunch of mythical heroes in a no holds bar deathmatch
