1. it has gazillion episodes (lol)--200+ in fact--enough to have character developments and countless sidestories and filler episodes

Episode Count =/= Being overrated/underrated
Episode content being crappy but overly praise = Overrated.
Even if a series has a lot of episodes, as long as it's contents and fans are both at a reasonable level, and has a perfect reason for its fans, it's not overrated.

3. the ending sucked--period.
there are many differences in the anime storytelling and in the manga--leaving important issues unaccounted for or untold

Content of the episode =/= Underrated
Even if it sucks, it can be overrated.
Underrated means that it doesn't get the praise it needed
However, you listed a reason why it SHOULD have the praise it currently has.


thanks for the reply
BUT just to clear it out, as most people here probably misunderstood,
i am not saying that underrated animes are bad and overrated ones
are all good..i am just asserting that they are so for a reason.
and this thread is for "those reasons". my opinion on naruto and trinity blood
are my own opinion, whether u disagree w/ me or not.
this thread is not about my opinion but about what you think the reasons are
for an anime to be dubbed as under/overrated.

i want everyone to give their own answers/reasons/examples of animes.


But your opinions are a mis-assumption of what being "overrated" is, and what "underrated" is.
Overrated = Getting the praise it doesn't deserve
Underrated = Not getting the praise it deserves

For example, what you listed for a series being underrated is "WHY" it's getting the praise it currently has, which therefore makes in a contradiction since it would mean that it's not underrated.

3. the ending sucked--period.
there are many differences in the anime storytelling and in the manga--leaving important issues unaccounted for or untold


Sure, blah, blah, blah, your opinions, but if your opinions are way off from what overrated/underrated means, then it's quite obvious for a person to disagree with it.

Besides, this is the internet, all your opinions get challenged all the time.


rebutting my own opinions is cool but you should give your own examples.

okey heres wt i think... trinity blood: meh, so so, made me fall asleep i wish and prayed for action but everytime it came to an action part, it would skip scenes n then come bak wen the fight was over. i gave up on it and im glad i did because wen my bro finished it he sed he wasted his life.

naruto heerrreee we go, sum ppl dont realize that these stupid fillers arnt even in the manga, they are just time wasters so we dont have to wait for the next manga chapter. try to seperate the stupid pointless fillers from the manga and u wd see y sum ppl still love it, i found out the other day that the 3 tails plot wasnt even in the manga it was just some random pointless filler. but now that thats over we will finally get serious and alot of things r gna happen.

tbh. yes i agree hate the art work and the emo style music now.


i agree with you on naruto. yes, yuukimaru isnt even in the manga.
the manga is still good, definitely more fast-paced than the anime, that's why there are still
many who like it.

on-topic:
underrated anime is tales of the abyss
it's originally a game turned anime. the artwork, through the end, is consistently great.
it only has 26 episodes but all major characters have been accounted for, with all of
their stories told. the plot is pretty unique too and the storytelling is okay. there are some
episodes that are really touching, and honestly, i cant remember a boring episode, though the
anime itslef is very predictable.


i think the reason this anime is underrated is because, first, its kinda short. and as i've mentioned, the
anime is kinda predicatble, even the ending part. (i rly never like the ending).
but it's a good series. i recommend it for anyone who likes a short, but touching anime.
source (of the pics): http://blog.seiha.org/2008/11/tales-of-the-abyss-05-a-week-at-the-factory/

thats is one of the main problems for tales of the abyss i chose not to associate myself with short fast ending anime.


haha, lol we're the same.
even though i like animes to actually end, i dont want them to be that short.:)


...im so disheartened i found a good anime a couple of days ago sengoku basara.. found out it ends next episode ...... theres only 12 eps!!!!

so im not sure to rate it as a good or bad anime anymore lol

OP is annoying.
26 episode's gives lots of time for character development, plot, etc.
Posted 6/20/09

Examples are already given.
I don't neccessarily need to give an example from an anime, since my point is that you didn't understand the definitions of overrated and underrated.

sure

Overrated:

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Naruto
Bleach
Shugo Chara
Vampire Knight

Well, for the reasons, it's either that they've been running for quite some time, and it has been showing on TV a lot, or that the characters are drawn nicely, and they look cute/hot.

to me, underated animes are ones that were not popular, but when given a chance, you'd find out while watching it that they were very well done. Ookiku Furikabutte is a short series that was excellent but not a huge hit.

That is exactly right if someone wants to go only by popular and overrated anime he might miss some very good anime

Turn A Gundam: Arguably one of the most underrated gundam series of all time.

Know what seed is? Of course you do, whether you hate it or not. Ever heard of Turn A? No? Well there's several reasons behind it:

1. The designs/ MUSTACHE GUNDAM. Unfortunately, a gundam that broke the rules of the design for a gundam wasn't so well accepted.

Name the first thing that comes to mind.

2. SO LITTLE ACTION. Nowadays, as evidenced by Gundam Seed (Destiny) the average gundam viewers now are fangirls with an attention span of a peanut. Want actions and explosions every 10 seconds? Well you're not gonna get it from this series. On the other hand, it redeemed itself with a great plot, but because no one wants to watch a gundam series that didn't suck, but there's not a lot of stuff blowing up, no one cared anyways.

3. Gundam at the time was at its worst (In Japan). It's last series, Gundam X, flopped because of the horrible time schedule it was cursed with (6AM IN THE GODDAMN MORNING.), among other reasons (blame Gundam Wing?). Bad ratings for the last series didn't help much for the next.

4. Tomino did his best to make the series as uncliched as possible. No, the main character never gets a better gundam halfway in the series. The gundam doesn't appear in the first episode and no main characters die (ok maybe one), something that was next to unheard of at the time, considering it was directed by kill 'em all Tomino. Also, the main character was supposed to be female, but sunrise didn't allow it. At least a woman did the voicing.

So with all of these main reasons (along with probably several others), you get one of the best gundam series of all time, yet no one watched it.

Oh, sure. And this is coming from the girl with the Red Herring. It's okay if you don't have anything to say and resort to useless taunts.
