Top 10 Anime that are Both Terrible and Overrated

The Top Ten

1 Sonic X Sonic X Sonic X is a Japanese anime television series created by TMS Entertainment and based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series published by Sega.

Wrong. It is rather underrated from all the hate it gets from the overly-nostalgic Sonic fans and Chris Thorndyke. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

2 Sword Art Online II Sword Art Online II Sword Art Online II is the second season of the Sword Art Online anime series, produced by A-1 Pictures and directed by Tomohiko Ito. It is divided into the "Phantom Bullet", "Calibur" and "Mother's Rosario" arcs.

This wasn't as bad as the first season in my opinion but it still wasn't very good for me. - RoseRedFlower

Oh god this needs to go higher
As soon as this became more into romance, it became terrible and cringey

3 Dragon Ball Super Dragon Ball Super Dragon Ball Super is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation that began airing on July 5, 2015. It is a sequel show to the Dragon Ball manga and the first Dragon Ball television series featuring a new storyline in 18 years.
4 Doraemon Doraemon Doraemon is a fictional character in the Japanese manga and anime series of the same name created by Fujiko Fujio, the pen name of writing team Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motoo Abiko.
5 Tokyo Ghoul Tokyo Ghoul

Manga is better. - RoseRedFlower

I really liked this, but not my favorite, probably 3rd or 4th. but it is a "feeding ground" for weeaboos - EliHbk

I see how this is on here...

8 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

Pokemon used to be a really big topic in school, but so far as I know I haven't seen Pokemon cards since Global School Play Day. But that's okay with me... really, do you know how superlatively boring when people keep raving on and on about Pokemon Sun and Moon, or whatever?

I'm really getting tired of seeing these "terrible and overrated" lists, but I am not going to complain too much because we are all running out of list ideas. - DCfnaf

It is not terrible. I know the games are better, but that isn't an excuse to hate the anime. Both are good in my humble opinion.

The most annoying anime ever, nobody should like this, it is very disappointing and trashy - EliHbk

This looks SXXXY as HXXX! - EliHbk

10 Boku No Pico Boku No Pico Boku no Pico is an anime series of three OVA episodes created by Katsuhiko Takayama. It was released to DVD on September 17, 2006.

I don't know of anyone singing the praises of Boku no Pico. Not exactly overrated. - WholeGrainNeko

To be honest I like the theme song
But still the anime is terrible usually perverts really like this kinds of stuff
And its made for them - BigBashful

12 Naruto Shippuden Naruto Shippuden Naruto: Shippuden is the ongoing sequel to the original Naruto anime and covers the Naruto manga from volume twenty-eight on. The TV adaptation of Naruto: Shippuden debuted in Japan on February 15, 2007 on TV Tokyo. It is developed by Studio Pierrot and directed by Hayato Date.

I like most animes, dislike a handful, and truly love an elite few. Shippuden is one of the elite. A pinnacle in many ways. Not perfect, but no series is. And I appreciate the filler, it gives me more scenes with my favorite characters. - Crwth

There's five hundred of these episodes and so much of it is filler. It was a long sit. - RoseRedFlower

This is horrible with the stupid dialogue and junky story - EliHbk

Honestly the filler is just trash

13 Black Butler Black Butler

I was recommended this anime by a certain user here. The animation is nice but I hate the characters and I hate the fanbase because they wanna be f(bep) by a demon, a reaper, or just a SMALL LITTLE 13 YEAR OLD BOY! That's all they talk about. Their vaginas being (LONG BEEP) by these characters who have that personality of not caring about anyone... My most hated characters are Lizzy, Grell, and Alois Trancy. I don't like Sebastian but Ciel is okay. - TheLoudHouseSucks

14 School Days School Days

It's terrible, but not overrated: not many people genuinely like this anime.

Never saw this anime, but I heard it was sexual. Also, FLIP PHONES? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Wanna watch it because of hate - EliHbk

While it is overrated, It wasn't In any way bad. If anything, this, princess tutu, Nanoha and Utena are the only good magical girl animes. I don't like the other ones, especially Precure. Ugh - MLPFan
