I personally loved SAO, thought it was something different, although the love story seemed to develop out of nowhere. But I'd have to say Naruto. Didn't watch it as a kid so when I watch it now I just find it really boring. I can't really handle straight fighting anymore. I get bored.

I wouldn't say the big 3 are overrated... I'd say the fanbase for them is established due to the long running series.

Anything with meccha(ok I just secretly hate the genre)

SAO - Still enjoyed it though for the most part

Madoka - I say this having watched first 2 episodes though and not understanding what the big deal about it is. People say it picks up on the third, I guess i'll find out eventually

Death Note and Code Geass(mostly because I can't stand god complex characters)

The last filler arc for Naruto was better than almost all of the whole series, especially in terms of animation quality. I did absolutely love the first fourteen episodes of Shippuden, but then it went back to being shite. I also liked select (small) portions of the regular first series, such as the ever-famous first big Naruto/Sasuke fights.

Steins;Gate is a masterful show, I think, in various ways, and while highly acclaimed is not really overrated in the same way that you would say the Big 3 or Haruhi might be. After looking at various reviews of Harui, it's certainly not a priority watch like other critically acclaimed shows may have been for me.

I think in regards to Sword Art Online, the anime itself is entirely mediocre and disappointing, in that it could have done so much. The first episode was SO exciting and drew everyone in, and most people I think just stayed for the ride. The kiddy types that can't not get super sucked into things and into characters even when they are one dimensional and want to live vicariously in their animes are the ones I think who obsess over it. The kind you see making SAO themed guilds in MMOs wishing they were Kirito or Asuna.

That said, I think the SETTING and the CONCEPT is amazing, and that's why it became so popular.

I await the day we see a good VR Fantasy MMORPG style anime. .hack was pretty awesome when it came to story and mystery, and not the detective kind, but it had so many loose ends and was so unresolved and spanned so many different at times unrelated series...Tenchi Muyo anyone?

Sorry, that turned out longer than I thought it would.

I think we can all agree the Big 3 are generally awful, in terms of story, animation, consistency, etc. and super overrated.

haruhi. it was good, but it was no masterpiece. the problem with it was definately that everybody makes haruhi out to being god, completely omnipotent. (she's also quite annoying). only one person called her god, and that was itsuki, who you can hardly ever take seriously. and there's plenty of anime about reality warpers that are just as good, if not better. noein for example. it had much more interesting characters.

SAO. it was great, but way overrated. season 1 was extremely well done, but season 2 didn't feel nearly as intense, despite the fact that everybody says it keeps getting better and better. in fact, the best scenes from season 2 were the flashbacks with silica.
even the final episode of season 1, best scene, feathers flying in the sky and a shot of liz and silica. they should make a season 3 about kirito's adventures with silica. (no i haven't read any light novels of the series except for the famous chapter 16.5, which would have been better if it had silica in it.)

boku no pico. there are plenty of messed up shows out there, but everybody seems to think this one is the highest on the list. it's not even close. just sayin'

I agree on SAO's second season. And I didn't like the plot line with the cousin. It didn't develop well and it seemed a little forced.

Without a doubt - SAO.

How come I'm not surprised you'd post that? You have managed to post that view whenever possible. And even created opportunity to say it when it has no relevance to it.


Lol, can't let bygones be bygones, eh?

That's exactly how Nagato Yuki feels. Do you hate Yuki? Do you? Besides- if you already hated the series, why did you spend time watching the entire endless eight? Usually, people only do that if they secretly like it. Are you a Tsundere? And no- Naruto/Shippuden fillers are the worst excuse for wasting time.


Calm down child, I have already settled the matter.
