Well yeah don't get me wrong this series is very good with great action scenes, cool music, interesting character, and many more but what pisses me off is that how rushed the fights are - sadfag

If this was an anime, this would make the list. - shawnmccaul22

43 The Irregular at Magic High School The Irregular at Magic High School

Just a boring anime about the overpowered protagonist and his harem. - HoneyClover

44 Hunter x Hunter Hunter x Hunter Hunter × Hunter is a manga franchise created by Yoshihiro Togashi. In 1999, Hunter × Hunter was adapted into a 62-episode anime television series produced by Nippon Animation and directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi. The show premiered on Japan's Fuji TV and ran until 2001. Three separate original video more.

It isn't underrated but it is barely in the boundary of overrated.

Although the show gets praised a lot I honestly think it deserves.

It's pretty impressive for a Battle Shounen Anime.

Overrated? If anything, Hunter X Hunter is underrated.

I tried to like it, but honestly I got nothing from it.

Huneter x hunter is seriously most hopeful underrated anime
please rate it
watch it to watch it you will surly like it

45 Elfen Lied Elfen Lied

It's official. I'm the first person to ever call Elfwn Lied overrated ever.

It's just porn + gore

It's not just porn and Gore.

Nudity + Gore + Child abuse + Bland, cliche, and annoying characters = This anime.

46 Another Another Another is an anime based upon the Novel and Manga of the same name by Yukito Ayatsuji. There also exists a live action movie based on the novel.

It wasn't as scary or even surprising at all.

It's underrated if anything.

Just boring... also the outcome was really messed up. At least the op and ending are good. - TopiTaupe

I saw all deaths on youtube
I liked it but need to learn the plot - Adventurur2

47 Gurren Lagann Gurren Lagann Gurren Lagann, known in Japan as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, is an anime series animated by Gainax and co-produced by Aniplex and Konami. It was also directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi and written by veteran playwright Kazuki Nakashima.

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Hold your horses right there! This is overrated?! No it's not! It is legitimately deemed as one of the best animes of all time! It has got a lovely cast, nice animation, an interesting plot, good pacing, and some of the best development I've ever seen in an anime! It does have flaws, but it's not flaws that stand out! This is one of the best animes you'll find out there! - VeronikaHolm

How is it boring if it's the most epic anime I have ever seen? Sure, it has its flaws, but Gurren Lagann is not that bad.

This is better than Evangelion. Evangelion is more overrated.

Gravion did it better. - PerfectImpulseX

48 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.

Thanks for the trolling. Not gonna lie, it's popular because most people (like me) in the anime community were dared to watch it. If you're new to anime I beg of you don't watch it

Overrated you say? How is it overrated if only extreme perverts and pedophiles can possibly even like this anime? This list is for popular animes that people LIKE

I'm surprised there are people who are disgusting enough to enjoy this piece of crap. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

No. Just... no.
I warn you, NEVER. EVER. come near this abominable thing of an 'anime'. It's a disgrace to Earth's kind. - Goku02

49 Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans

Seriously, this mean-spirited, cruel trainwreck is the best Gundam series of all time? And don't get me started on the horrific ending... - PerfectImpulseX

50 Ao Haru Ride Ao Haru Ride

This shoujo have nothing original and yet everyone praise it for something already done before. I don't understand the popularity. The art is good but it's all. Nothing special. - TopiTaupe

51 Future Diary Future Diary

It's enjoyable, but from a critical standpoint, it's an utter train wreck.

If you took away Yuno literally nothing what happen the whole time

Is It just me or this anime gets added to the list twice(as future diary and mirai nikki) - MLPFan

I hate this show so much.

52 Neon Genesis Evangelion Neon Genesis Evangelion Neon Genesis Evangelion, commonly referred to as Evangelion or Eva, is a Japanese animated television series produced by Gainax and Tatsunoko Production, and directed by Hideaki Anno.

This is an anime that has gathered a large fanbase for over 20 years. If you say this franchise is overrated, Shinji/Asuka is annoying or even give any criticism about it, you can get attacked by the defensive fanbase that it has got. These people are so butt-hurt and evil towards any hater or troll of the series. Some anime can be cool, but some of its fandom got the worst kind of people. - Pinkarray

Okay, if people say Gurren Lagann is overrated, how about Neon Genesis Evangelion? Evangelion is more overrated than Gurren Lagann. At least Simon managed to man up and become a true manly leader of Team Dai-Gurren unlike how Shinji stayed a whiny wimp even at the end of his series!

Honestly most of the people that critic evangelion are happy with watching the general mainstream bull they get fed. You may no like Evangelion, it may be hard for to understand, I get that, but people should at least respect that fact that it has some of the best character design and development, yes even shinji. It's a hard show to get, but it's complexity and character design should at least be recognized

Ok I just to make this clear this is a master piece it tells a story like no other the characters are all relatable and it’s serealism to tell what a persons siki is really like if you find one anime exactly like it I’d love to hear it this isn’t overrated it’s right we’re it needs to be - Animeme

53 Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers

I honestly didn't know that show was popular. - PerfectImpulseX

It's only a Japanese reboot of the Avengers with Akira, Hikaru, Jessica, and friends. The truth is, It's only popular because it has the word 'Marvel' In it -_- - MLPFan

54 Higurashi

Why is this even here? If anything this is underrated.

One of the best things that ever happened to my life

This is underrated and shouldn't b here

55 Angel Beats! Angel Beats! Angel Beats! is a 13-episode Japanese anime television series produced by P.A.Works and Aniplex and directed by Seiji Kishi.

I actually really liked Angel Beats. The soundtrack was good, the animation was nice and the characters were likable. The only problem it had was being too short. - RoseRedFlower

This is NOT a perfect anime. I will still watch it, but the series has just as much plot holes as SAO. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I would love to watch Angel Beats! But it gets far too much hype! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Angel beats sucks it's my least favorite along with code gay ass - nao

56 Cowboy Bebop Cowboy Bebop Cowboy Bebop is a 1998 anime television series animated by Sunrise featuring a production team led by director Shinichirō Watanabe, screenwriter Keiko Nobumoto, character designer Toshihiro Kawamoto, mechanical designer Kimitoshi Yamane, and composer Yoko Kanno.

Not bad by any means, but DEFINITELY not as good as people consider it.

Baccano! is more fun to watch. Cowboy Bebop isn't the most boring anime, but it does have some boring moments.

A little overrated, but still one of the greatest anime of all time. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It's not perfect but it's a pretty great anime. I love to rewatch it and it's one of my favorites. - Pinkarray

57 Code Geass Code Geass Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, often referred to as simply Code Geass, is a Japanese anime series created by Sunrise, directed by Gorō Taniguchi, and written by Ichirō Ōkouchi, with original character designs by manga authors Clamp.

I really enjoyed it at first but later I lost my interest seeing lots of cliches.

Very slow-paced as it goes on.

Code gay ass* - nao

58 School Days School Days

But "someone got what he deserved - Adventurur2

It's downright terrible! - Goku02

If anything schooldays is underrated

59 Rosario + Vampire Rosario + Vampire

This anime had no character development or anything... Ugh. The manga was so much better, - ArtyLily

Generic harem. That's all it is.

Honestly, this anime was terrible. There wasn't much of a plot.
