Anime elitists overhype this anime and treat it like it's "The Godfather" of anime too much. - PerfectImpulseX

64 Free! Free! Free! is a Japanese anime television series directed by Hiroko Utsumi and produced by Kyoto Animation and Animation Do.

Yes, I'm the first to say this series is overrated. Sorry guys, I keep finding it all over Google and I see too many praises of it all over Facebook and YouTube.. So yeah, it's overrated

Unless you consider abs plot, then yeah. There's a plot. A bunch of it. I don't mind the manservice, but these characters are so plain! I like slice of life if done correctly, and I will have to say this anime had everything messed up. It's just a group of guys in swimming club, and that's what it is. Characters are not relateable, and they're pretty much just cardboard cur ours of character tropes.

It may be overrated but does actually have a plot besides abs

I'm a girl and no,I don't go all crazy about this nine and how "hot" the guys are.People make it look like it's the best anime ever,but it doesn't even have a storyline! It's just a couple of guys swimming,that's all! It doesn't deserve all the praise it gets.Why is it not in the top 10 of this list?

65 No Game No Life No Game No Life

This anime was painful to watch, especially because of its characters. Sora and Shiro are too OP, they never lose and they always outsmart people. Oh does that remind you of someone else? Coughkiritocough Stephanie is that character that the show just LOVES to mock, and she's just there for fanservice and being dumb so that Sora and Shiro can explain to the viewers in detail why they did something. That is literally her sole purpose. The rest of the characters were so bland, they aren't even worth mentioning. I started watching this anime with high expectations because of the hype, but they had to introduce Shiro with a pantyshot.

It's sad people think this is better than SAO. The only good things about this show are the animation, OST, Madhouse, and that Sora is voiced by the same Japanese voice actor for Kirito. Other than that, I just don't like this anime. At least it was a fun ride while it lasted... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

People say Sword Art Online is overrated, but then they say No Game No Life is the best anime ever? Please. I loved Sword Art Online better than No Game No Life. NGNL had way more fan service and was more incestuous than Sword Art Online. Not to mention that wasted potential of a Season 2. I think No Game No Life is more overrated than Sword Art Online these days.

K thanks for the title

Are U kidding me this is one of the best anime series ever.

67 W.I.T.C.H. W.I.T.C.H. W.I.T.C.H. is a French-Italian-American animated television series based on the Italian comic book series of the same name.

First of, it's not an anime(obviously, you can tell from the characters' looks and names and the animation style).

Well for me, I quiet liked the show but I thought the plot was a bit decent and quiet odd...'like 5 teenager girls who are best friends and who are unappealing their true identity in front of others' sounds quiet familiar and too cliche-cal. The animation style isn't bad but maybe if the animation was a little bit smoother(especially on fighting scenes), it would be better. The characters are a bit unlikable to me and are too stereotypical:

- Will: The bossy one, the heart of the team and the one who claims to be the strongest and most important of all.

- Irma: The tomboyish one who likes to crack jokes and spends her time, trying to show off the "sexy" image of herself/

- Taranee: The "clever" one of the group and aside of that, she's the weak and shy one.

- Cornelia: A spoiled brat who only cares for fashion, girly stuff and having ...more - xXLittleQueensXx

68 Cross Ange: Rondo of Angel and Dragon

I can't understand why people defend this sexist garbage! - PerfectImpulseX

69 Gosick

One of the worst romance stories I've seen, There was only one interesting character, and it was the ANTAGONIST. The weird switch of mystery to "romance" was terrible. And there was no actual emotion to the "romance" it just felt.. Boring.

70 Ergo Proxy Ergo Proxy Ergo Proxy is a science fiction suspense anime television series, produced by Manglobe, directed by Shukō Murase and written by Dai Satō.

Actually,this anime is underrated. - Tia-Harribel

71 Peach Girl Peach Girl

It's lit

Nearly the worse anime, and most definitely the worst shoujo anime I've seen in my whole life. The plot is stupid, the characters are incredibly stereotypical, and not even the Japanese-anime-trope-stereotypical, but American-high-school-gone-wrong-stereotypical. AND there are people who still recommend it to others, just like how it was once recommended to me. Ugh. - Randomnessity

72 Berserk Berserk Berserk, also known as Sword-Wind Chronicle Berserk, is a Japanese anime television series that aired from 1997 to 1998. An adaptation of the manga Berserk, it comprises 25 half-hour episodes produced by Oriental Light and Magic and first aired on Nippon TV.
73 Steins;Gate Steins;Gate

I watched 3 episodes, biggest waste of my life...

I can't believe everyone calls this the greast anime ever it was so boring that I had to drop it.

74 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.
75 Battle Vixens
76 Tsubasa Chronicles

The manga is better
This anime is overrated due to nostalgia. - PerfectImpulseX

77 Saint Seiya

It's a really fun anime to watch. It has lots of action moments and the characters(mostly the main character seiya) using their special clothes power up with every fight they have against a stronger opponent and they get to reach their seventh sense and so on. The fights are very entertaining, but the idea of the weaker men constantly winning against high level opponents become very repetitive and at times it becomes boring. However, as a whole, the anime is decent to watch. I don't think that it's an overrated anime and in contrary I think it is underrated and often forgotten.

Effeminate guys clad in shiny armors beating the tar out of each other. Seriously, too many gay moments in this one.

78 Eureka Seven Eureka Seven

God, why. This show killed me, but not in a good way. MURDER SHOULD BE DONE RIGHT!

79 Soul Eater Soul Eater Soul Eater is an anime series directed by Takuya Igarashi and produced by Bones, Aniplex, Dentsu, Media Factory, and TV Tokyo, which adapts the Soul Eater manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Ohkubo.

The only good things about this show are the characters, the character development, the premise, and the first majority of the anime series. Then things go downhill when not only does it turn away from the original manga content, but it also just turned Maka into a Mary Sue at the end and had the credits roll with a cheesy montage that still leaves more to be told. In other words, it has the same over-the-top hype of Attack on Titan and the same plot issues similar to Sword Art Online. Finally, Soul never got to be a Death Scythe despite that being his goal along with Maka's goal at the start of the series. And don't get me started on how the series failed miserably by trying to imitate a mecha series by literally turning the DWMA into a Gurren Lagann ripoff!

Good anime, but I don't even know why some fans of the show even think the ending was great. That ending was one of the biggest letdowns in all of anime and ruined Soul Eater as an awesome anime. Not to mention they made Maka a Mary Sue with that "bravery" punch. Oh, and don't even get me started on Soul Eater NOT! That is the first and only anime I ever regretted watching in my life! Soul Eater is awesome and overrated, but Soul Eater NOT! is just an insult to the Soul Eater franchise!

The ending confused me, but I love this show so much. Kid was amazing, the villains were on point, the plot was cool, it was hilarious, a bit gory, but it's way better than a lot of the shows on here.

Ending sucked
great anime though - nao
