I think this thread has been done before.

Anyway my 2 cents:

Most overrated: Easily Clannad and Clannad A/S.

Underrated: That's a bit tougher, but from the top of my mind something like The Tatami Galaxy or Haibane Renmei comes to mind. Brilliant shows both of them.

Well this is a topic that creeps up from time to time and i always choose something different XD

So this time let's see.

Most overrated: Will have to be Sword Art Online. I can't understand why it's so popular. First season is watchable but not something i'd go out my way to watch again. Second season was awful. Just takes everything i hated from season one and does it 10 times more.


Most underrated: Off the top of my head Eureka Seven i suppose. That anime series just never seemed to get the popularity and praise it deserved for having a great story and characters, Gorgeous art and a fantastic soundtrack to boot. It's mostly unknown or people watched a couple of episodes and didn't follow it up.

I’m going to take overrated and underrated literally (not in terms of popularity). In other words, I’ll exclude series that aren't popular, yet are still highly praised by the few that have seen them and vice versa. Click the spoilers for descriptions (no spoilers were given).

Overrated – Destiny of the Shrine Maiden (aka Kannazuki no Miko)

Underrated – Kill Me Baby

Those are just my personal opinions, though.

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 agree with you on the most part, but you should cut 3.33 some slack. The original was pretty much in the toilet around the end of 2.22. Also, did you see the dub of Mushishi? Travis Willingham ftw.

Overrated-Bleach. I like it and enjoy it but really it turned meh after the soul society arc.

Waaaaaaay under rated-Toriko. I'm enjoying this than any other shoenen at the moment. It's powers and fights are special and exiting and there's a new twist every few episodes/chapters. If you are looking for the best newish thing in my opinion it's toriko. It's bull that bleach sells better.

I don't like the idea of an overreated show because I feel like they did something right to hold such an audience but some shows that I feel are underrated would have to be Squid Girl , Haibane Renmei , and Girls Und Panzer .
