I guess the title says it all.

What are, in your opinion, the most overrated and underrated anime shows/movies you have ever seen?

Now remember this is not the best and worst anime you have ever seen. But instead an anime that gets A LOT of praise that you feel it doesn't deserve, and one that you feel should be HUGE but for some reason isn't.

For my overrated anime I chose Neon Genesis Evangelion...that's right i said it

Now i don't have the time or the energy to explain why i don't care much for the show so i will instead focus on the movies.

Now the first of the new movies were OK, but I just watched the last one and a) it was full of nonsense, b) the characters either made no progression or reverted to babbling bawling idiots again (Shinji!), c) nothing anyone did made any sense, d) Shinji's dad doesn't do anything except sit there and look like he should be doing something.

Now for my underrated anime i chose Mushi-Shi.

If you haven't seen the show then stop reading this and go watch it. Seriously stop reading this and go watch it, I'll wait ........Alright you're back. Welcome to year 0 B.M.S (Before Mushi-Shi) Not only is it one of the most original anime i have ever seen but it proves that you can have a main protagonist (Ginko) that doesn't have a gun, a weapon, or any type of killing skill of any sorts and still be a total bad-ass.

But enough about my choices. What's yours?

I would kinda have to agree on AoT. It really got me hooked after the first 6 episodes but since then I haven't felt the same "rush" since then. Still Armini is a cute trap and I Still have hopes it will pickup soon. I haven't read the manga just yet.

In recent memory, Fate/Zero is pretty overrated.

I'm not sure about underrated anime since I don't have any frame of reference for identifying them.

InuYasha and FullMetal Alchemist is over rated. Also Code Geass

Mirai Nikki, To Aru Majutsu No Index (NOT the spinoffs), ALL senien shows,JoJo's Bizarre Adventure,Fate/Stay Night Are underrated

It really sadens me that JoJo is so underated outside of japan. It is awesome and has caused many many anime memes and such. Well I guess it is a semi good thing since anime fans tend to ruin series with their annoyness

I know, right?

Surprisingly, while there are already a couple of threads that deal with "underrated" shows, and there's an overrated/underrated thread for the Spring 2013 season, there is no active "Overrated of all time" thread. I guess it was time for that to start up again.

I have to admit that I don't follow news or reviews and don't have enough sense of things to usually judge when something is "overrated" or "underrated" (which is difference I think from "popular" and "unpopular" but I'm too tired right now to think about just how). I just watch what I like with very little idea of how it's perceived by others (aside from those who participate in the discussion threads here on CR, once the show has started.)

In case anyone is curious, here's the underrated/overrated for Spring 2013 thread:

Most overrated: the big 3 ( One Piece, Naruto/Shippuden, and Bleach), and AoT
Most underrated: anime that barely anyone talks about and would most-likely never will which is sad since I like a lot of underrated anime.

its really a subjective thing overall, but overrated id say probably things like SAO, DBZ, Naruto.

Underrated id go with stuff that barely anyone else has watched, like Tokyo Magnitude 8.0
