I have No idea how popular these are, but ones that Other people really enjoy that I honestly disliked were Samurai Champloo, Black Butler season 1, and Trigun.

Samurai Champloo- I hated the series after about a fourth of the way in. The violence seemed to have a "drop-off" for me and it became more of a comedy to me at least. I also hated the ending because it was just too predictable.

Black Buter- it simply bored me and I can't really figure out why. I forced myself to watch episodes and just never go into it.

Trigun- The first half didn't do much for me and when the second half came in the plot was soo rushed and forced down my throat that too much of the story was happening in every episode while in the first half it had little to none. I later found out The series wasn't so well accepted in Japan so I assume the second half was rushed just so they could finish the story. So i can give it some leniency.

I can see how it might seem over hyped. I think that's because people were excited that there was something new that wasn't one of the major long standing series. The animation was great and the storyline and characters interesting but in all honesty I think it was rushed. They could have easily had all 25 episodes take place in Aincrad before moving on to Alfheim and made it a much better series so far.

Dragonball Z, School Days, and Lucky Star are 2 that immediately come to mind when I think of anime I loathe.

HIGHSCHOOL OF THE DEAD

worst. anime. ever. No plot, no development, no nothing. Just butts, boobs, blood, etc.. which I know is very enjoyed by certain people, but if it ain't got a decent story then I ain't interested.

I'd have to say Gargantia so far. It was pretty good the first two episodes but it started slowing down and just showed filler type stuff without much action. But seeing the ending of the last episode, thing's should start heating up now.

Code Geass is beyond overraated. While I agree with the fans that it had awesome characters, the story SUCKED.


Other anime I find overrated are Bakemonogatari and Toradora. The formor was perhaps the most boring anime i sat through. Its mostly a bunch of dialogue and was only good during the 5 minute long confrontation scenes with the spirits. I also dislike Hitagi. Tsubasa was the only character I liked. As for Toradora i thought it was just another predictable rom-com. The characters aren't memorable and you know from the fricking TITLE that Taiga and Ryuuji end up together. I will never understand why so many call it a masterpiece.

If anything, nowadays it gets more hate than praise...

But I'd have to say Rosario+Vampire. Really didn't like that series...

Naruto Shippuden, I despise it so much.
I actually liked the original "Naruto" too and had high hopes for it.. but it's just a bunch of crap.

and well.. SAO - I can be honest and say that I enjoyed the series when it first came out. Interesting concepts and etc. Maybe it was all the hype and all the people saying that it's the "best anime of all time" (what a joke) that got me to start disliking it. It really wasn't THAT bad now I look back at it.. but it wasn't what I consider anything special either.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica. And... really?

I honestly find that surprising.

MAJOR CODE GEASS FIRST SEASON SPOILER IN THE TAGS, DON'T CLICK LIGHTLY.

I'm kind of neutral on that one. I agree it was kind of an absurd move, but it was also incredibly ballsy. It reflected just how dark they were willing to get, even though they then got lost in said darkness and hurt themselves a lot.

Naruto used to be one of my favourites, but somewhere inbetween getting sick of fillers and watching a whole load of different shows I decided to drop it. I still read the manga though. I also don't get the hype with FMA, I can't get into it at all.
