Overrated:

1. Cowboy Bebop- Boring and cliche characters, boring story, bad animation, etc.

2. Gintama- I thoroughly enjoy this anime but it is EXTREMELY oversold by its fans.

Terra Formers was completely Overrated - Couldn't stand the show and couldn't see what everyone was raving about


Were people really raving about Terra Formars Most people I heard from were either saying that it was crap or that it was fun action for the most part. I don't really think there was much hype behind Terra Formars, especially because the first three episodes kind of killed all momentum it could have possibly built up.

On topic:

Steins;Gate is always a good one to mention when it comes to overrated Anime, at least in my oppinion. It's so highly rated that people pressured me to watch it all the way through, even though I did not like it from the get go. Doesn't deserve its standing as a recent classic in my oppinion, although it is well made.
Underrated is more of a tricky question. Kara no Kyoukai springs to mind because it is a fantastic piece of work, that should most definitely be watched by more people. Then there is Monster, which has gotten kind of overshadowed in recent years, but is still one of the best Anime that I have personally ever seen and should be watched by everybody. Carnival Phantasm is also a show I want to mention since it is the most hilarious thing I have ever witnessed, but its biggest problem is its accessibilty, seeing how you would have to dedicate many hours to two quite big franchises in order to enjoy it fully.
Then of course there are many obscure things I have watched, which deserve more attention and in most cases also more episodes, like Koe de Oshigoto! for example. But if we were to list all these things, I am afraid, this post would get too long.


I agree with both your assessment on Terra Formars and Steins Gate. On Steins Gate, I thought it was presented and made well,but top rated? I watched the whole thing waiting to be blown away,but it never happened. I wouldn't say it was bad,but definitely oversold by fans. I believed Terra Formars to be an action packed show that while fun to watch, was never going to win any awards.

Overrated: Back in the day there was something called the Irresponsible Captain Tylor. Sci-fi! Halarious! Incredible! A+! said many reviewers. I ordered every DVD, surely this will be great! Mother of God it was horrible. The main character is an unlikable douche and his supporting cast is equally unlikable. I never openly rooted for a character to die horribly than I did with this.
