Don't even bother buying or renting, and seeing Movie 4. It was sooo boring because nothing significant really happens; it's back to the ol' status quo at the end. Sincerely, I fell asleep trying to watch it. I let my younger sister borrow the DVD and she said both she and her fiance fell asleep trying to watch it too.

I hate the inuyasha movies because like most anime movies they don't tie in at all with the story line and introduce characters you never see again

WOW! I dint realize that it was that bad. I still havent seen and now not really loking forward to it. But as for the movie I think its better if it dosent tie into the direct story, because if your like me you rarly get to see the movies and if your watching the series and it continues past the movie you have no idea what to hell is going on. so I think Its a plus.

I think anime in general is overrated. Most anime fans overrate their favourite series and uphold them on this great pedastool when 90% of anime is really crap made for the sole purpose of cashing in on it.

The 10% that isn't crap is still overrated because the ones rating them are obsessive fanboys and fangirls. It's really kinda' repulsive.
I think alot of this business of "overrating" anime actually stems from early comparisons with western cartoons of the 70's to 80's ... (with the notable exception of Disney ...

The problem is that the market is getting more decerning and harder to please (or to impress) given what has come before ... and the writers/producers are beginning to hit limits on orginality and novel concepts. Moreso because of the Japanese tendancy to formularize successful plots and scenarios in order to milk a particular Genre.

Personally I believe the most overrated animes (now) are Naruto, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Cowboy Bebop. I like Bebop, there's just not a real plot to the whole show (IMHO).

Naruto is so overrated it is not even fun. I enjoy the show, but not that much.

I don't believe FMA is overrated. I love the anime so much!

Neither is BeBop, a great anime it is.

Haha that's so true.

Naruto being overrated is also true. It seemed to come off as the DBZ of this decade. Hey, let's make it take five episodes for someone to actually get hit by something in a fight.

^^I could never really get into DB. Any of them. Yeah i watched it, but just so I would know what my friend were talking about when they discussed the show. You know when I think about it, you cant say you know anime until you have seen at least one episode of DB.

Because 9/10 if your talking about anime there will be at least one refrence to DB. That kinda annoys me, but what are you gling to do.

But back to what I was saying, I cant think Naruto is anything like DB. There just too different in my mind.

So I dont think Naruto is over rated at all.

So you reckon it deserves all the love and attention it gets? I'd like to hear your reasoning behind that.

Calling a series over rated doesn't nessaserily mean it's a bad series.

I think everything needs love and attention. If people become obsessed its thier fault. I say let them be, when they're able to pull their heads out of its ass then they'll learn and hopefully become better people. Or be like us and live to crytisize it.

And thats the problem. People start to realize that its over rated and become crytics, quickly destroying what they once loved. They tell everyone the flaws of the show deturing their intrest, causing a chain reaction that leads to the show being called "bad".

You never said anything though.

Maybe you should explain yourself then? I find both series to be quiet similar. They both share the basic premise of a group of warriors fighting to protect a group of innocent people from an unknown extremely powerful evil. Even down to the fighting scenes, it gets too similar to DBZ. Why for huge story arcs does it have to take like five episodes for some ---- to actually happen? Or how about searching into the depths of my soul for my emotions that will unlock some hidden power to defeat some schmuck that either wants to rule the world or destroy it? Yeah that's real original.
