Japanese Fans Select 50 Most Overrated Anime

Scott Green:

o·ver·rate   [oh-ver-reyt]
verb (used with object), -rat·ed, -rat·ing.
to rate or appraise too highly; overestimate: I think you overrate their political influence.

Whatever the darn word means, an enormous pool of over 33,000 votes were cast for biglobe's Top 50 Grand Prix of the most overrated anime. From Evangelion's presence (despite an evident recency bias), to the fact that Shonen Jump series like Naruto and One Piece are on the list (but low on it), or the presence of series that never all that well-regarded in the first place, there is plenty of food for controversy and discussion on the list below.

It's kinda funny that even the "Most Overrated"-list is comprised of the usual suspects.

A list of popular-quality anime, filled by haters of those animes. As always, a good reference of what to see.

But I agree with some of those, even If they're not exactly "overrated". They're plain bad.

Most of it is true!

Except Madoka deserved to be overrated (which it isn't IMO). That sht was crunk

I know this list is pretty old now but I was surprised to see Anohana coming second. I think it truly deserved all the praise that it was given (bias aside of course).

I agree. It was a great series and I wouldn't really say that it was overrated.

People have their complaints about it (and I can understand most of them) which may drive them to think that it is overrated but most complaints aren't really that big.

Naruto should be on that list and OP isnt overrated.

Simon_Brezhnev1479d ago

Naruto should be number 1 only reason im saying this because it gots a damn spin off for crying out loud. I dont know any anime that airs and a spin off series airs during the same season.
