I was just wondering if i was the only one who finds re:zero among the most overrated anime around, because all i see is constant praise for this show, yet i find it painfully average.

I have to admit i hate the show (even if the pacing was a mirror of the novel) for what it was but as the show continue this series just bores me more and more. I don't see the obsession with subaru either, he is such a weak protagonist who has an incredibly bare bones personality and gets very little development throughout the seasons (which is pretty much par for the course with the other characters too). He is also too powerful, there is never any real concern that he is going to lose at anything, which is just boring. The harem also annoys me to no end in this show since subaru and emilia is the main ship', yet they barely interact with one another. All the cast of the show do now is fanny about doing the same stuff i with no real purpose, at it's core it's like watching someone play a video game (and since they can't die there is no real risk anymore). I can't see past that so most of the tension during fights is killed for me. I appreciate in the newest episodes they have developed on rem's character quite a bit which is very refreshing.




I'm not here to hate on the show, if you like it then fair play, i just don't get the hype that surrounds it and wanted to know if anyone felt the same way or if not what you like about the show so i can get a better idea of why it's so popular.

You're not alone...I wholeheartedly agree with you!
I started watching ReZero two weeks ago to see what the fuss was all about - I had really high expectations given all the positive comments i've been reading everywhere...but I was really let down. I've only caught up to episode 14 and I have considered dropping this show (I probably won't) as I personally find it boring, but I can see how other people may enjoy it

My problem is that the fanboys are starting to get out of control. Everywhere you see a video of someone talking about a different anime that is excellent like 91 Days or Mob Psycho 100, there is always a fanboy that says "fuck this show, only a couple more days for Re:Zero". In my opinion, Re:Zero is good, very good indeed compared to the majority of light novels out there, but people are starting to give it too much hype which will obviously kill the show for many people.

The anime certainly deserves most of the good things that have been said, but even though I'm liking it, I don't love it.

Subaru needs to pay more attention to best girl Betelgeuse instead of running around having an affair with the horny oni.

I agree. If I continued watching it, I doubt I'd give it a score over a 6/10, which is still better than average. I think the hype got to a lot of people to the point where they were blindly defending negative qualities of the characters and story. The anime definitely has good qualities, but in the end, I felt like it was a series mostly being held by thrilling gory deaths, agonizing Subaru faces, and waifus. I'm not trying to exaggerate and won't deny that it focuses on more than that, but I felt those three things were emphasized the most and I think for some people, that's all that's needed. That's how I thought before I dropped it anyway. I hear about what's going on right now, but I don't feel like it's worth picking up again. Maybe in the future.

Edit: Why did I answer this seriously? It's just a copy of the "is it just me that finds (insert anime) overrated" threads LOL. I should have expected this from op. How embarrassing.

Over-rated by the fanboys. Under-rated by the haters.

What else is new?


I suspect at the end I will give it a 9/10, which pains me to do since it does fall flat in several departments. Idk, I guess I just love cliff-hangers

Alderamin's my best in season. I forced myself to watch Re:Zero, and it has had moments where it was good. Buuut...

Yeah, I don't get it either but then again, I have a perversion with MC's that are at least somewhat strong themselves, so show that is focused on a guy having to navigate events so he gets help from others... Ehhhh, maybe I'm biased.
