Most Overrated?

Which animes made your most overrated list? Now this does not mean bad shows, just shows that had more hype than they deserved. Here's my short list:

1.) Witch Hunter Robin
2.) SaiKano
3.) Mahoromatic Season 2 (but I loved season 1)

What do the rest of you think?
Cheers

Almost everything that I have ever watched that I greatly enjoyed and thought to be an excellent anime was overrated. Whenever you have a large fan base, people tend to glorify what they are fanatic about, so that is inevitable. I mean, I LOVE Evangelion, but yes of course that is overrated by much of it's fan base. Though, to me, that doesn't make it any less great. Cowboy Bebop, also a great anime, is VERY overrated, recently moreso than Evangelion. Again, doesn't really mean anything bad about CB at all. You could pretty much say this for any title.

Therefore I'll regulate my answer to Dragonball Z. It's often thought of being so much more than it actually is. I still watch it though. I think it's good for when you just want to sit back and relax, without having to think much. But people keep calling it the greatest action cartoon ever made and the best anime to ever come out of Japan....eh heh...no.

Animes I found overrated (not saying they are crap I enjoyed these titles) are
- Love Hina
- Chobits
- Neon Genesis Evangelion
- Final episode of Excel Saga (not as 'crazy' as it was made out to be)

1. Neon Genesis Evangelion (certainly not worth all the hype)
2. Tenchi (any of them)
3. Kimagure Orange Road (yaaaaawn)
4. Oh! My Goddess (I wouldn't watch it more than once)

For the record... I dont believe in anything being overrated if the people who are hyping it actually love it. Its only when people start jumping on a bandwagon -just because its the hip thing to do- that something becomes 'overrated'.

Anyway, with that out of the way....

TRIGUN IS THE MOST OVERRATED ANIME EVER

Two of the most overrated animes I've seen-
Dragonball and Dragonball Z (can't stand them)
Onegai Teacher (was cute, but overrated)

Life is overrated...

Oh... you mean anime?

Well... this topic, if seen by non-Anime Viewers would say that Anime is overrated...

So I find this topic as simply too negative and not one you'll make friends with...

Personally I don't think any anime is overrated... That's a term that is too subjective...

Evangelion. TOTALLY Overrated. -_-;

...and..yeah..that's all I can think of. Aside from the obvious DragonBall Z..but it had it's ups and downs.

DragonBall was far superior to Z.

Actually, I found FLCL to be pretty overrated. Most other animes seem to do pretty well in my books.

There are a lot of things out there that are overrated really. A few that come to mind have already been mentioned here: Eva, Cowboy Bebop, and Trigun. But that doesn't make them bad anime. Just not as good as the general hype would suggest. Booyaka.
