Top 25 Most Overrated Anime

tears-of-yuinyan-by-kana.png

Anime fans quizzed on which anime they cannot comprehend the popularity of supply a suitably incendiary ranking,

The ranking:

1. K-ON!

2. Ano Hi Mita Hana

3. Madoka

4. One Piece

5. Angel Beats!

6. Baka to Test

7. Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko

8. Ore no Imouto

9. Infinite Stratos

10. Hanasaku Iroha

11. Tiger & Bunny

12. A Channel

13. Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai

14. Star Driver

15. Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo

16. Hidan no Aria

17. Balemonogatari

18. Nichijou

19. Dog Days

20. Steins;Gate

21. Hayate no Gotoku

22. Strike Witches

23. Dragon Ball

24. 5 Centimeters Per Second

25. Lucky Star

That they are dominated by recent titles can either be taken as a sad indictment of anime today, or, as seems rather more likely, another reminder that the memory of the average anime fan extends back only two seasons at most.

    @Bryan
    No its more like I watch anime to escape reality as I have a crappy life, not to make me feel even crappier. That's my take on liking shows like K-On, but yeah sometimes I do want to watch something that makes me think and there are still plenty of anime out there for that.

    Take anime seriously, chose K-on over ghost in the shell/cowboy bepop any day . . . . You do not take anime seriously, you take jacking off seriously.

    There goes a saying, "Don't take life seriously, nobody gets out alive anyway". Overrated lists are overrated.

    more like the "people" who voted in these polls don't even know what the polls are about so they just vote for something that they recognize.

    It's amazing how these lists are always limited to shows from the last one or two years (with a few exceptions). You'd think anime didn't exist until recently. ;)

    Might be good, though, because the awesome stuff like Eva, Trigun, Bebop, Last Exile, and so on remain unscathed.

    I think it's funny how the same exact 'old' shows get mentioned over and over too but you choose to overlook that. I enjoy most of the anime spectrum but I would rather rewatch most of the things on this list than have to rewatch Bebop let alone Shinji's bitching.

    K-on will be on any list it has to be on the list man.

    If Japanese want to watch it on Disney Channel its on the Disney Channel.Chinese want to copy this Anime will let them copy this anime because K-on is a special anime for Japanese to watch.

    I admit the artworks an acquired taste but otherwise it's a great anime. Overrated? No way!

    The 4kids version should be buried in the same landfill where Atari buried its E.T. cartridges for the 2600.

    Overrated means being more popular than it deserves to be. Most of the shows on this list are genuinely that good.

    They should really have a 'vote down' system for these polls where people who disagree can vote down a show. Otherwise, only the people that hate a show will be able to vote, creating the same biased opinions that appear on every list.

    The definition of overrated then would be based on opinions only. What does it mean that it's more popular than it deserves to be.

    I don't know I just see it as if a lot of people loves one particular anime then those who are meh about it will call it overrated
    Also I agree with the vote down system I really think it is just a poll with one choice "Yes"
    Come to think of it how can it be considered a poll then?

    My opinion on SanCom's lists:
    Personally, I like these lists, just because I like to read about what otaku actually living in Japan think about anime.
    However, I think that it's dumb how a big deal is made about how "the memory of the average anime fan extends back only two seasons at most".
    I highly doubt that this is true. If you ask a Japanese otaku what his favorite anime was from, say, 2003, I don't think he'll be lost looking for an answer.
    The inclusion of recent anime is simply because that's what's popular. It happens on American TV too. You wouldn't see a TV show from the 90's on a list of CURRENT popular shows.
    It's all about the present. The present is all that's important. Therefore, recent anime is most likely to top a list because it is in the present or near past.
    I also noticed that pretty much everybody always posts the same kind of comments for every list. You say that it's ridiculous for K-ON! to top all these lists, but never explain why.

    Well, I'm done talking for now loPr
