I swear I've watched the first and second episodes about 6 times and just couldn't get beyond it, lol.

Every time a friend asked me to watch it, I'll give it my best but it always ended up in disaster.


You would have to skip quite a bit. Like I tell every critic of Gintama who haven't watched much of it, you HAVE to get past the character introductions, which take up the first 20-30 episodes. After that the comedy gets much much better, and the action in the serious arcs are top-notch, and by top-notch, I mean they are smooth and interesting to watch (and also don't drag on forever like every other Shonen). The most recent arcs, are completely awesome. If you saw some of the arcs which are appropriately hyped, then you would probably think that it wasn't bad at all.

I for one think Neon Genesis Evangelion is overrated. I don't mind it, but when people start declaring that it revolutionized anime, that's when I grow skeptic. Also One Piece...again not that it's bad, but just a lot of fans who talk nonstop about it.

Lol.. Most of the mainstream animes.

The most overrated anime HAS to be One Piece.
Though I also think that REALLY overrated animes are:
High School of the Dead
Naruto
Bleach
Ao no Exorcist
Swordart Online
K-on
Evangelion (Isn't that overrated cause majority of the viewers just respect what Evangelion stands for, but doesn't like it that much.)
Saki
Toriko
Fullmetal Alchemist (The series itself is good, but the characters aren't anything above mediocre and the action isn't that great either.)

Gintama, it gets a lot of praise. When people talk about how super funny it is, it turns me off from watching it (I did watch past 10 episodes of it). That's just me though. As for Neon Genesis Evangelion, it didn't necessarily revolutionize the whole anime genre, but it did have a huge impact on nearly all genres.

For the most part, in the action genre, I would most definitively say Naruto. I used to love it as a kid, but nowadays, I can't watch a single episodes without being bored.

Those big three you hear about at every turn.

Haruhi

SAO (Though I personally loved it, I don't think it needs so much hype)

It's not that the animes suck, it's that they are overrated.

I'd say Deathnote because the second half didn't come anywhere close to living up to the greatness of the first half and the ending seemed like a cop out (the writers just took the easy way out).

i think its a matter of opinion who likes what etc. i think there are a lot of underated anime, but to be honest any anime is better than watching keeping up with the kardashians or something gay like that ^^

If you read through the message you quoted, he did say that the character introductions will end after 20-30 episodes. The beginning 20 episodes aren't anything special, and the first 10 episodes are the worst of the bunch imho.. But the rest of the series is golden, and you'd do it right if you give it a proper try.
You won't lose anything if you skip a few episodes (Unless you manage to skip to the middle of a arc, though most of the episodes are 1-2 episode stories.).

Vampire Knight: I do not want to go into why. A lot of my friends don't like it either.

Toradora: I see a hate reply coming up for this. i watched all 25 episodes, but i found it to be just another predictable romantic comedy and rather boring to watch. I don't see why so many call it a masterpiece.

Code Geass: It was another disappointment. While it had great characters, (C.C., Lelouch, Suzaku, and Kallen are pretty awesome) i didn't like the story and the direction it went.

I know he said 20-30 episodes, it's just every other time I hear about it they say 10 episodes. Anyway, I'll give it a proper try some time.

Code Geass - I just don't have much interest in it. I just don't really like many of the characters and the plot just kind of drags on.
Naruto- SO....MUCH....FILLER. The manga is alot better.
Vampire Knight- It's just so meh' I hate the main character as well. Yuki is just so infuriating. -_-
Bleach- Pretty much the same reason as Naruto.
