People fear criticism as if it means death by hanging.
With over 500+
Here they are.
1. Angel Beats
Angel Beats is an
So what’s my beef with it? It just didn’t click with me. Only thing I really liked was one of the characters: Kanade Tachibana.
That’s mostly down to her personality. As for the story, it has a good premise but It feels bland in how they go about portraying it.
On top of the basic action (basic, NOT good), and the many characters who are forgettable, it disappoints.
Had my expectations not been so high because of hype, I may have felt different about it.
Anohana has a similar problem to Angel Beats, even though they’re not the most similar shows.
Turns out Menma is still around as a ghost, and she’s able to see the pain and suffering people are going through.
The main characters in a nutshell, end up seeing Menma in the end and it leads to a supposed emotional set of episodes.
Truth is, like Angel Beats, how they want about it makes it bland. And in the case of Anohana, childish and too exaggerated for it to feel genuine.
The art style has something going for the
I feel the same way about the
3. Attack On Titan
Attack On Titan…. An
That I won’t deny. It’s a FACT after all. I’ll even say it’s a classic as far as its standing in the
That said, it’s a tad overrated for me. Unlike #1 and #2, I think Attack On Titan is decent regardless. But overrated without a doubt.
I still haven’t watched S4, but I doubt my feelings will change on this one.
Again, it’s decent, but NOT a masterpiece in my eyes. The art style, animation… These are the
Not so much the protagonist (Eren).
4. My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!
My Next Life As A Villainess is an
Whatever the year was when it released, its been doing well. And from what I’ve seen, it’s a good series.
Not brilliant, but good.
Problem is there are
Aside from all that, it’s a decent series with a good MC and comedy. But it’s being overcompensated for what it actually brings to the table.
Crunchyroll 2021 anime awards judges (not including myself) kissed its ass a bit too much.
5. One Punch Man
OPM has done a killer job since the beginning. I mean, how many
Season 1 of One Punch Man is obviously the best, with season 2’s fault being that it was done by a different studio.
Saitama’s a relatable character who despite being overpowered, has obvious flaws, weaknesses, and is even depressed and a bit empty in his life.
As far as heroes, he’s in a lane of his own, and it’s a selling point for the
That all said, it’s overrated. It’s a good series, but its qualities are exaggerated a bit.
Pokemon is a funny series and an even funnier franchise. It’s the BIGGEST
Not just that, but Pokemon is literally one of the biggest brands in the world. It’s too successful to consider an “
That aside, the
The franchise’s power is really what gives the
By itself, the
7. Log Horizon
Log Horizon is always pointed out as an alternative to
I’ve watched season 1 and 2. Season 3 apparently dropped in quality, but that’s another story.
Log Horizon is a good series. I’d give it an 8. And I’d definitely never go lower than 7.
It’s not better than
8. Deadman Wonderland
Deadman Wonderland is one of the worst anime of all time. I stand on that one.
First of all you have the most annoying MC of all time. It’s understandable logically because he’s just a kid who’s thrown into a death match with grown adults and sh*t.
He’s forced to do things he has no business doing. He’s gutless and only a teenager.
Still, he drags down the entire series with his constant BS. Shiro is the better character (white hair) but nothing brilliant.
The action and the violence overdo it a lot and it just becomes violence porn at some point.
9. Black Butler
Black Butler is an
It’s in a British context.
His butler Sebastian makes the show more comical, and both work together as they do underhanded sh*t and take part in the underworld.
I can see why female fans would love this (which they do), but it’s overrated otherwise.
At best it’s decent and it does have its good points. It’s just not what fans hype it up to be.
10. Sailor Moon
Sailor Moon is a classic series and I’ve said it who knows how many times. It’s responsible for
It’s also responsible for the magical girl genre becoming what it has years and years later.
That said, I can’t sit here and act like the
It’s like Pokemon in that way. Unless you grew up on it, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to get into it or enjoy the series with all its cliches, tropes, and lackluster fights, etc.
It’s not as if Shoujo can’t be enjoyable, I have plenty I like. Sailor Moon is decent, but not the best when you analyze it.
Demon Slayer Season 1
People were begging me to watch it back in late 2019, and so I did. And surprisingly it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
After I fully watched
Was it good? Yes. But NOT the masterpiece everyone was claiming it was. People were too busy wanking over the visuals and aesthetics.
The sister dynamic is its strong point. I’ve never seen anything like it. But It’s not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination.
I’m glad it opened doors for new fans, and made so much money for the anime industry, but that doesn’t mean I have to over hype it.
12. The Promised Neverland
I’ve been saying this from the VERY beginning. The Promised Neverland is overrated, over hyped, and oversold.
Everyone was losing their minds over the first episode, and after watching it, it was easy to see why.
The first episode drags you in and then vaguely introduces you to the darkness that’s yet to come. Only to not really be so dark as the episodes fly by.
The comparisons to
I thought season 2 might turn that around, but we all know how that disaster turned out.
13. Made In Abyss S1
Made In Abyss season 1 is another
I watched the entire series. The mystery, the curiosity the
Made In Abyss is actually a decent series, but I won’t call it a masterpiece just yet. It’s too overrated as it stands.
When season 2 comes out and we get to see more, only then will I decide if the
For now though, I’ll say it has potential. But that’s it. Admittedly the last set of episodes are emotional as F.
Noragami is another
You have Yato, who’s basically a God who’s poor as F. And Hiyori, a girl who joins Yato and sticks by him.
They all journey together and run into trouble along the way.
Can’t help but say for how it’s hyped, the
It’s a good series, but no way is it in masterpiece territory. Or even close to that.
That’s just the effects of hype, it colors your perception sometimes.
15. Parasyte: The Maxim
Parasyte the Maxim gets so much praise, at least from a good number of
It’s a horror series about Kenichi,a teenager who almost has his brain eaten by a parasite. But instead it takes over his arm.
Both the parasite, which is intelligent, and Kenichi, have to put up with each other and end up growing a sort of bond together.
But…. I can’t call this a masterpiece. It reminds me of
There are so many more Horror shows are better (Higurashi, School Live), and so on.
- Ergo Proxy.
- Death Parade.
- Steins Gate.
