Given the internet's tendency to over hype everything this has happened a few times.

Revolutionary Girl Utena. Slash my wrists with a skillsaw, I had such high expectations for the series and ended up quitting before I hit 12 episodes.

Fate/stay night. I was really intrigued by the concept, and then I realized that Rin and Shirou were the main characters. To it's credit it got better in the second half, but it never reached my original expectations.

Elfen Lied. Not to pile on, but like Utena it was hyped as being divinely inspired. It wasn't terrible or anything, although the ending sucked to an extreme degree, but it just was incredibly average. At least to me.

Ikki Tousen. I figured it would be mediocre going into it, I truly set my expectations too high.

Angle Cop. I was expecting a classic bad 90's anime. What I got was a relatively boring, bad but not epicly so anime with mediocre voice acting that wasn't even worth making fun of.

Arcana Famiglia. They start by setting us up for some shounen tournament series, then it devolves into filler. Who the hell wrote this crap, Vince Russo?

I try not to listen to hype, which is why I go into anime blind. Some of my favorite anime have a lot of hype around it.

But for, unfortunately it's hard to ignore Eureka 7's hype when it first came out. It wasn't my cup of tea
Also Death Note wasn't so great either. Even the first half.

I'm so sad to see AnoHana on this list twice :'( Tis muh fave <3


Personally for me, Death Note :X
"Best anime ever made" "#1" etc.
It doesn't even make my top 10, I enjoyed it, but, it wasn't the super amazing show most people worship it as (in my opinion, of course)

Sword Art Online, no question. The anime is really mediocre at best.

My Opinion:

Blue Exorcist: Even though Shura is sexy, I still think this anime is mediocre at best.

Bakemonogatari/Nisemonogatari: The episodes goes off story for the most part, and I got bored and gotten offtracked with the endless dialogue these scenes have, still some of the music is great and I strangely like Nadeko's song, and I got a few chuckles in some episodes.

The Future Diary: Unlike the previous 2, I didn't see all the episodes, but I still find it mediocre, still I like the opening songs, especially Dead End, because I freakin love Faylan's music.

Guilty crown = to be clear, I thought this was a letdown, but it did live up to it's hype (up to about half the series where Gai died). To me, there's a difference between being a letdown and show I think should've never existed. For shows that are letdowns, they start out as good and are generally ok for a good % of the series. Very bad or disgraceful shows to me means = this show sucks in almost every episode and I don't know why people enjoy watching it.

Sword art online = I really don't see why people like this show. In my standards, this didn't even count as a "good" show yet people are screaming it's the best thing ever (someone always says that for something you think is terrible). It's literally: One Person's trash is someone else's treasure.

Last exile: Fam on silver wings = An utter disgrace as a sequel to Last Exile. This falls into the never should've been made category for me. Sequels IMO should be just as good as the first if not better. Otherwise, the existence of the sequel is essentially a black mark on a pristine plate.

Saint Seiya Omega = same category as above, disgraceful sequel.

All Digimon shows after Digimon adventures 2 = these new Digimon show are basically AU of the storyline from the first two series. It's a shame that they didn't decide to build upon the plots from season 1and 2 because the storyline of these new series are really not as well developed.

All anime based on manga that destroys the plot = it's not just the fillers, but most anime that deviate from the manga's plot ends up killing the anime. I say most because there are some anime that have different plots than the anime but still end up very good. Some examples are Ghost in the Shell, Wolf's Rain, samurai champloo, etc.
