Please choose an answer, and tell me why you chose that answer.

I think it's one of the few animes that's actually DESERVING of it's popularity, or at the very least some of it.

*Looks at SAO and NGNL

Not really.
I place it as a personal favourite because it's one of those rare anime that openly mix shounen elements with seinen elements and that could be why it's both popular and has a positive reception.

Due to its popularity, you have a significant group of people who say stupid things like 'Attack on Titan is the only anime worth watching' or 'What is wrong with you for not liking Attack on Titan?'. These type of people overrate it.

While you have some level headed people who realize that no anime is perfect and Attack on Titan has flaws.

The only reason I may think it's overrated is cause the stupid people are the ones who get peoples attention and most people end up thinking it's only these stupid people that like it.

Definitely deserves its popularity. People tend to hate popular things.

Nope, it deserves the attention. The series lived up to its name in my opinion

must i say, mikasa and titan erin and levi. also i really don't understand the concept of popular series don't deserve their high rating, i'd completely understand a great series that is completely underated but not the other way around.

in response to Cadet_Chu, there are a decent amount of anime that are perfect on paper but even then its specified and even then it probably feels really awkward. and if fans and trolls really mattered, then wouldn't we hate all anime in general? only the mightiest of trolls should ever affect us, but yea i get you, i think it might be trolls fault that i am an antifan of madoka and code geass even though i personally think they are good.

The only reason I voted yes was because alot of people believe that attack on titan is the best anime of all time when their are so many good animes all around. I STILL LOVED ATTACK ON TITAN THOUGH

I don't consider it "overrated" but I can see why many think it is. If an anime is popular it's going to have a large number of fans in its fandom and there's bound to be a few bad apples in every orchard.

Absolutely. It was a completely average anime with its soundtracks being one of its very few outstanding qualities.The characters and their developments were sub par, and the premise isn't as original as a lot of the fans like to think .Was it bad? No.Was it amazing?No.But you always have those people who say things like,"Attack on Titan is the best anime ever",or "The saddest death in anime history was Eren's mom's death". Those people are a huge reason why AoT will always remain,at least in my opinion, an average anime.

It's not overrated in my opinion, it is a good anime but there are the few fans who say stuff like "Attack on Titan is the only good anime," who annoy me. I love Attack on Titan but can admit it has flaws e.g. poor characters.

Yes...a little. I still love the anime and manga very much.

To be honest, SnK isn't as popular as The Big Three and might not ever truly reach that goal.
