^ Well, like you said, they can have their opinions and think it's overrated as hell. Something being popular does not invalidate that it has flaws, enough flaws to put off some people who do not agree with the godliness that fans make them out to be. If we worked by your logic, Justin Bieber and Twilight are the best things ever because they are talked about so often and make so much money, no question. But personally, I have pretty much tried to stop including the big three whenever I can because they've been talked the hell over, but I don't mind that there fans who still enjoy them and hold them as favorites (I used to like them when I was first getting into anime but you know, they got more and more disorganized with increasing plot holes/fillers).

Ao no Exorcist, Naruto, Bleach and Fairy Tail. Horrible writing in all of them, FT winning out on it being one of the most generic and shittiest shonen I've ever had the torture to watch.

*insert comment about mainstream vs. non-mainstream*
*insert comment about opinion vs. fact*
*apply /headdesk and /facepalm*

It would be interesting to see story lines/scripts from those that are pouring so much nonconstructive criticism into this thread.

I couldn't STAND the anime at all. I was working on the team translating the chaos;head VN

I was editing all the images...seriously, biggest nightmare ever. The CG's used scanlines on EVERY computer screen, requiring me to edit out all the japanese text, add in the english text, fish eye, skew and distort the text, then REBUILD the scanlines. There was one or two images I completely just remade on my own because editing the original was too horrible...I don't know if they kept the images I had used, unfortunately they basically pulled the translation project down because of a supposed effort to team up with Jast USA to bring it to the states, and I left the project team about halfway in because of life getting in the way. I had litterally put in almost 80 hours in one week editing images. It took 8 hours to edit EACH image.


Lol just to entertain myself I went ahead and downloaded the only torrent I could find of the translation.

Looks like they used all the images i had made in the final (like 99% complete) translation build. That makes me sort of glad to have been a part of a project like that.

This post isn't exactly constructive either (nor is this sentence).

In other news. The talk about SAO being overrated is pretty overrated. I believe there was a post made by seth that SAO did introduce a lot of people to anime and most the people who started anime really like that and as such over hyped people because it is their first anime.

I dont know if Naruto is over-rated, is anyone out there actually saying its work of genius? I think its just fun, good creative fun, and one of my fav shows. Thankfully, I can skip all the filler on crunchyroll.

Someone told me digimon was superior to pokemon by far, my kids disagree, they think digimon sucks, and so do I (even for a kids show)

A friend told me elfen lied was this incredible blend of violence and sex and I had to see it, three episodes later I told him hes full of crap its a ecchi and everyone has convinced themselves it deep so they have an exuse to watch this girl crawl around naked and do silly things.

SOA isnt bad, but it had buckets and buckets of potential and it turned out to be a very pretty but very generic anime.

Edit - Naruto is prolly over-rated, but I was 15 and happened to stumble across my first anime ever, a battle between bushy brows and garaa and I was so completely enthralled my mind couldnt comprehend that cartoons could be this awesome. I have been a huge anime fan ever since so that probably makes me biased lol

I guess i shouldn't say naruto is overrated. It has a strong following among the younger crowd and i can see why they would enjoy it.
