I'm going to make tons of enemies on this but...Ghost in the Shell is very overrated. It gets way too much attention, a new movie comes out and suddenly there are tons of new Ghost products. I found it very confusing and uninteresting, it failed to keep my attention from the start of the movie.

Some other overrated ones would be Cowboy Bebop and Evangelion. Both of them are very good, but get way too much hype.

Any popular & critically acclaimed anime is overated.......

Evangelion is overated, Cowboy Bebop is overated, Zeta Gundam is overated, Macross is overated etc

Just because something is overated though doesn't mean it's bad, I consider CB to be one of the greatest animes made yet I also agree that it's overated, Evangelion while amazing is flawed and overated..

And to add another one to my previous list of Eva, FLCL & Zeta Gundam...

Naruto

Sure it's a decent to great anime at times especially for what it is but people (Narutards) are acting like every episode is the equivilent of Braveheart/Gladiator

Ghost In The Shell is overrated, especially the SAC, so boring. The movies are high quality, but that's pretty much it, not worthy of multiple viewings.

Evangelion I don't think is overrated, because if it is, then every anime is overrated. Eva delivered what I had been hearing before seeing the series and EOE movie. Eva is just overhyped, but not overrated.

here is the dictionary definition

overrated-To overestimate the merits of; rate too highly

so in otherwords, its getting much more credit then its worth.

INU YASHA. God it's so annoying! I like it and all, heck I love it, but people say 'OMGEE! I LURV INU YASHA!' when they have only seen one episode!!! ITS SO FREAKING ANNOYING!
Also Rurouni Kenshin gets more love than it deserves. It's an excelent series, but it's not nearly as good as alot of people say.

=[ Hay don't say that about Sailor Moon

I don't believe anything is overrated. You hear about it from the people that like it and they go on and on and on because of that. It really does depend on what you like and what you don't like. What i like is not going to influence what someone else will see in the same anime. Overrated-ness ( not really a word but oh well ) is really just viewers advertising what they like in hopes that others might agree.

Oh and by the way, DBZ is way way over rated.

Wow there's a lot of heathen in this thread.

I think any of the gundam series are overrated.

And I back Darklightz on his views for Chobits. The show was so disgustingly suggestive that I couldnt keep watching. Hentai at least is honest about what it is. I cant stand that semi-honest crap.
