FLCL and Neon Genesis Evangelion I enjoyed them but they get praised so much as the best anime ever.

I think Naruto, One Piece, Dragonball Z, Inuyasha, Bleach, and YuYu Hakusho are complete shit and overrated by their fans to oblivion and back.

well, i didn't watch much anime. so i think it's SAO and toriko

but for toriko, i just read 1 or 2 of the chapters, never read it fully or from the beginning. and i don't really know if the anime is really popular, but if i'm not mistaken, the manga is quite popular .

You just lost any credibility....Your'e trying to tell me you had to force yourself through Fate/Zero but SAO was apparently quality entertainment? You may hate it but it's the truth, SAO overall isn't good. I'm not going to hate on it because that ends with the rallying of the SAO die hard fan community. I would like to point out though it doesn't have much going for it, it's lacking any significant substance which is the reason people say it's overrated. People flock to it blindly, praising it for aspects it doesn't actually have. On the topic of Fate/Zero I'd like to say I have no idea what drug induced stupor you were in when watching it because that's a load of bullsh*t.

THIS.

And the fact that when you have a "lead" female character who does nothing in the 2nd half. Honestly, I can't understand why so many consider it to be the greatest anime of all time when it's blatantly evident that there were so many plot holes and "WTF" moments to fill the Mariana Trench.

Fate/Zero had the burden of tying together all the events of Fate/Stay Night while making sense, so of course they were going to have some problems with the story, but I think it was pulled off quite nicely.

To sum up Asuna's involvement in the 1st arc -Here's a mysterious girl who can relate to the main character as she also appears to be a lone wolf -TIME SKIP- She's a tsundere who has to rely on her boyfriend to save her, now they're married.....- Oh and we can't forget the abundance of Kirito's various Deus Ex Machina moments that are well explained and completely believable, those really helped draw in fans from the Big 3 community because they eat that up.

I'm just going out on a limb here but my theory is that those who praise SAO as being the holy grail(See what I did there, ironic if you think about Fate/Zero) of anime would follow with One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, and Fairy Tail making up the rest of their top 5

That's the unfortunate reality of Fate/Zero, to paraphrase Gigguk's review they had to set things up for their retarded half brother otherwise known as Fate/Stay Night. I agree with you completely, even with that task they managed to pull of an anime that I consider an outstanding success.

I would say Evangelion, though it has been years since I've watched it. I would probably enjoy it more with a second watch through. That was the case with Cowboy Bebop at least, I thought it was overrated after my first watch through, but then watched it again and now I definitely like it.

Or it could be that the series overall felt like a video game, and that's where it the problems and fan base stems from.

Death Note. Deus ex machina ruled that story to the point that it completely ruined my suspension of disbelief.
