Naruto is a teensy bit overrated and that means a lot coming from a major Naruto fan right here *points to self*.

well, i agree about Haruhi Suzumiya being overrated. i mean, i know she's god or w/e. but i never really liked her kind of character much. the rest of the chars from that show are ok, though.


agree on that... i just cant understand why she's so damn popular...

Due to the fact that to be overrated is relative, all anime characters are and aren't depending on who you ask.


But in my perspective, I'd say pretty much every popular anime character is overrated in my perspective...

Well, I'm not sure if anyone post something like this already. If they did, just block it.

Also, please don't get offend if I say anything bad to your favorite characters. Please respect my opinion because I'm sure that some of you guys may not like my favorite characters as well.

These are the characters that I kinda like but I think they are too overated

- Kamina from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Bad ass character. His character and the way he says are really good but seriously I see this type of hero in so many other anime so why he is so special than the other.

- Suzumiya Haruhi from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu

Haruhi is hyper and very energetic girl which I can understand why people like her a lot. Her looks is awesome. Her personality is funny too. But seriously sometime too much hyper doesn't always equal for being cool.



I don't feel strongly about this, but I disagree that Kamina is the same as every other hero type character.

Kamina's role is a mentor to whatshisface in Gurren Lagann, but more to the point, and very unusual in anime, he is actually a decent leader himself and leads the group until his demise in episode 7 (I think it was 7, I might be wrong).

His boundless energy and limitless optimism fits certain anime caricatures but generally those caricatures fall to the wayside and start following the actual "lead" at some point.


Yeah, I definitely see what you mean. I don't hate him at all. I like his character but I thought there are some other character that are as good as he is but never really be appreciate like the way he is. I guess I tend to like character that start of as normal then become like a read hero like Simon from the same series or Renton from Eureka 7 or Hikaru from Hikaru no Go. Thank you for your comment.

Well the growth of scrubs into something greater is very common character development in fiction. Tolkien is really responsible for the epic adventure and reluctant hero templates that are used so often in any sort of fiction nowadays. Heck, most animes you'll see follow this pattern.

Simon, Renton and Hikaru all follow this pattern.

And thank you for posting something that actually has thought and analysis behind it. CR forums really bore me most of the time.

Deciding whether or not someone or something is overrated just depends on what your rating and what criteria you are using to determine it. In the case of Kamina as an "all time great character" i would agree he is overrated considering he only made it to episode 6 or 7. But he was very productive in getting the anime moving, motivating other characters, and he started any bonds that mattered in the show. In that sense he might be underrated. Naruto's "coolness" factor is way overrated. He is loud, annoying, and many times feeble when it comes to fighting. But the fact that he can produce when it counts i think keeps him from being overrated. But in my opinion Vampire Night was overrated in every sense of the word. The story was boring, characters were unlikeable, and it was forgettable.

Look I'm on top ^_^

Anyways...I definitely think Naruto is way over-rated. I don't hate the show itself but the same morals apply over and over again in the story. I need some more variety to keep me interested. Also Naruto himself is just an annoying character. He's loud and obnoxious and kind of an attention whore. Don't take any offense to this Naruto fans. It's merely my opinion.
