Man, you guys must live in amazing places where anime is appreciated. I don't know anyone who says anime is good just because it's anime. I've heard people say Bo-bobo is awesome, which, is atrocious in and of itself, but never something so extreme as that. What I typically hear is the exact opposite: "haha, anime sucks. They all sound like they're constipated and the stories are crap. Haha." Basically, where I live, their is nothing but widespread and unfounded negative sentiment toward anime. It's pathetic really.


Bo-bobo makes me sad...

Its just too gay...

you know. those who want to be liked by a certain clique

there are a bunch of those, everywhere, and in every form of cliques
that... or they just feel like they know so much about certain things and want to brag about it =/

anyway. i see what you mean by overrated though. people liking anime and manga just because it's getting more popular, hence making it seem 'overrated', kind of...

Which means, shes giving Yu Yu Hakusho credit it doesn't deserve considering Yu Yu Hakusho hasn't impressed her in any way.


Explain again, please. I still don't quite get what you're saying.



Hes saying that because you have not watched it does not give you a right to say its good just because its Anime.



Posers sound accurate. Not overrated, rather, in some circles, it's become a fad?

No kidding. I'm appalled that people like it. This is the prime evidence of any anime being overrated, but that's only because anyone at all liking it makes it so.

Some anime is overrated, according to certain people's opinion. Some think Naruto and Bleach are overrated. Others think certain series are overrated. I think certain series are overrated, but anime overall can only be judged by the specific anime.

One anime may be underrated while another is overrated, so anime overall is not overrated.


thank you
i agree 100%
