If I had to pick an over rated anime for the season, it would be Free!, not that it's a god awful show, it's just that it is pure Manservice. Sure it deserves SOME attention for being different, I just don't think it deserves to be considered "TEH BESTEST ANIMU EVAR@!" Or even the worst, I see it as Ecchi for girls, and very rarely does anyone make a huge fuss about any specific ecchi show when it is for males I just see a bit of a double standard


In terms of under rated... probably Haibane Renmei, but that has already been stated a lot and I can see why people wouldn't like it (the show isn't very engaging for people who can't sit still for five minutes).

Other than that... I'm not sure, I would say Kino's Journey, but i know that's popular... No idea, I seem to have only watched things that were pretty well recieved or shows that I didn't like that sort of deserve the hate

Overrated: Clannad and SAO, Sorry
Underrated: Shinsekai Yori, Such a good story with amazing art!
Posted 7/21/13
Overrated: Naruto Shippuden(Not naruto)
Underrated: 5 cm/sec. There's probably no one who'd say it's bad or boring, but, however good anyone say it is, it's still underrated.

Naruto is by far the most overrated anime ever. Not sure about underrated though.

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.


Any other yuri you hate besides Kannazuki?

Lots of people saying the big three are overrated, yet I only ever see people saying they're all shitty or mediocre. Seems to me like the majority of people watching the big three think they're good, but not amazing. The same goes for SAO. I never see anyone saying it's amazing, but tons of people talking about people saying it's amazing. They have huge audiences because they appeal to a very large audience. Not because they are amazing to a smaller audience.
I quite like both Naruto and SAO. Naruto being a mediocre show that has it's moments when it's not bogged down in filler, and SAO starting off strong, then going to shit when it becomes a romance (but still worth the watch IMO). I enjoyed what I've seen of Bleach, though I got bored and stopped watching during the Bount arc. Don't think I've ever seen One Piece.

DBZ is probably overrated. My enjoyment of it is pretty much fuelled by nostalgia. There isn't really a whole lot to say about it that's good.
From the endless eight onwards (I know some people praise that as amazing, but it just seems like the very idea should have been a non starter. I can't imagine waiting every week to see that...), Haruhi is pretty terrible imo. Honestly, it seemed like they were trying to make it bad, with the such long shots of Nagato reading...

Now, I don't know how highly rated or known it is, but oh my god, Grave of the Fireflies. GotF is, IMO, the best animated film ever created, and yet it seems the likes of spirited away gets consistently rated more highly.
Also, what's with the hate on Ponyo? I thought that film was beautiful and heart warming.

Is that a jab at my strong statements? I probably came across a little over-zealous. Even though I don't like it at all and don't think it deserves the score it got, I don't really "hate it" per say.

But to answer your question, not really. Though, bear in mind I don't watch any yuri that's "obscene" or hentai. So, of the few yuri series I have seen aside from Kannazuki no Miko, most were pretty good.

However, I personally didn't enjoy Aoi Hana all that much. I don't think it's bad, just personal taste really. I felt like there was more they should have explored before that rather abrupt ending. But I still thought the series was good and i'm fine with its rating.
