Popular commercial Animes/Mangas always overrated/bashed
Posted 2/5/08 , edited 2/5/08
Have you noticed the trend?

DBZ, Naruto, Bleach etc...

I'm seriously tired of people calling x show overrated and how it sucks etc and tired of people thinking commercial animes/mangas are the best shit on Earth.

You guys should be less biased about popular shows.

as for me, even if I don't watch/read a popular anime/manga, I respect the author for captivating such a large audience. Not all mangas/animes can do that. It's when the animes start being broadcasted in other countries mainly in the US people start saying its overrated etc.. Remember Naruto before showing in the US, It was popular among anime fans and I didn't hear a lot of people saying it's overrated. Maybe a few but they were a minority but now everyone seems to take pleasure bashing any show that is popular. One Piece is a victim of that too. The english dubs are partly to blame for that.

i dont like the way the shows are overrated and i dont mind people saying that they think those shows are crud but i dont like how some people not only insult the overrated shows but also the pople who like them. everyones allowed to have their own opinion you know.

the shows get overrated once they reach the US. That's all there is to it.

Lol true. Popular animes aren't overrated all the time (death note, ouran highschool host club, gundam...etc). But most of them are because they are purposely prolonged due to popularity.

Ya and they become super overrated once they get dubbed. (look at onepiece. It was moderately overrated and when you shove it onto the US cartoon network it is overrated and crap. Have you heard the openning song hahaha)

No they don't....Haruhi, Gundam, Captain Tubasa are pretty popular and they are great shows. It's just because some popular anime become stupid in the eyes of those who watch a lot if different titles and say "Not this crap again..."...Or something like that.

That's so true. I prefer animes/mangas that don't have a huge fan following, e.g. Monster.

the reason why this happens is because the fans themselves are asking for it by saying shit like, "ZOMG!!! (enter anime name) ISH DA BESTEST IN DA WORLD!!!!! IF IT AIN'TZ (enter anime name) DEN ITZ SUCKZZZ!!!!"

Amen to that. It's not the anime that I hate, it's the fanboys/fangirls. While it may vary from person to person whether they actually hate it or not, one thing is in common, we all hate fanboys who say dumb shit like that.

And I'm glad my favourite manga never reached the US. Instead of welcoming shows in US, they bash it to hell.
Thankfully for CT, it reached other parts of the world such as in the middle east south america and some parts of europe. today, ct is still considered a classic. this is what DBZ or Naruto should have been remembered for if they didn't reach the US. I feel bad for these mangas.
