Post what you think the most overrated anime is and why. Why do you think it has been so well received?

I think I'll make the obvious choice and say Sword Art Online. It starts with a great plot, and has great music and animation. The plot development and characterizations drag it down, though. The writing really isn't very good. It deserves some popularity, but not as much as it has received.

Got to say One Piece, maybe it's just a matter of opinion but I don't see how it is still going.... But that also might be why it's so well received because it is so long.

I second SAO. I don't think it's bad but just not worth the hype.

Probably naruto... there is no major hook or good characters to keep one with high standards interested.

On a serious note, I think Bleach is very overrated. It is one of my three road-trips to Hell anime. After the very first arc; I think the show got infatuated with itself and lost direction in what it wanted to say and how.

I wouldn't really call Sao overrated.It's popular yes, but extremely hated by a large portion of the community and has been turned into a meme.For overrated animes I would consider animes that are universally loved and highly acclaimed i.e. fullmetal alchemist brotherhood or hunter x hunter (and before someone says something, no I don't consider either of these shows overrated).

Gintama and Erased.

Don't get me wrong, Gintama has moments where it seems like it may be one of the top shows maybe ever, but apart from those climactic moments there's so much garbage in between that brings the whole show down to merely average level. I'd say 30% of the show is excellent and the rest is trash or worse.

Erased was cool, but way too many people overlook that crap ending. So many parts of the show were pointless and looking back the show seems wildly incoherent even if it managed to somehow arrive at a conclusion with few plot holes remaining. Not saying it ruined the show, but it bothers me that people forgive something as critical as a proper ending especially in a mystery genre. The characters were really weak too and never noticed this until just now.

Okay, all the new fans triggered when I say "Shinji" on the left, and all the new fans triggered when I say "Kirito" on the right...

And will both please make room for all the 2nd-generation fans who never saw a Miyazaki/Ghibli film in their lives until Princess Mononoke and Howl's Moving Castle played American theaters?
We still have all those last remaining Akira fans to make room for!

I am gonna have to second the One piece point watched it when it first came out years ago and it truly had potential but just like INUASHA it has gone on way too long and never truly lends a direction to end.

Gundam Wing - so many great Gundam series and THIS was the one the Western audience most adored? Never understood the hype esp when you compare it to it's legacy titles.

Steins;Gate

It was so bigged up that when I watched it I was not impressed.
To me nothing much happened for the first 9 episodes so I thought it was boring - then all of a sudden

Bit of a pacing issue.


However, I liked the movie and am really enjoying Steins;Gate 0.

Attack on Titan. It looks nice, and the titan designs are cool, but other than most of the supporting cast, it has the most overhyped protagonist I've seen in a show. This is more of a personal reason for me, but I think the fandom also killed my interest for this show.
