83 Death Note Death Note Death Note is a Japanese television drama series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. The show is centered around Light Yagami a promising highschooler and aspiring detective with a strong sense of "justice".

It kicked off to a very good start, but it just went downhill afterwards. I honestly don't think it's a very good anime. It annoys me whenever it appears in the Top Tens Best Anime list.

I was really excited when a channel in my country announced this in the anime hour. I found it SO BORING. Everyone thought it was good, but I can't understand why. Pure emo stuff.

I love this anime overrated but awesome - nao

Its just overrated. Just it

84 Cardcaptor Sakura Cardcaptor Sakura Cardcaptor Sakura, abbreviated as CCS and also known as Cardcaptors, is a Japanese shōjo manga series written and illustrated by the manga group Clamp.

Cardcaptor Sakura is overrated? It's one of the most influential animes of all time but I can respect your opinion. - PerfectImpulseX

85 Grave of the Fireflies

Mediocre movie. They tried too hard to make this depressing.
Why is Attack on Titan added twice?

86 Mirai Nikki Mirai Nikki Future Diary is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Sakae Esuno. It depicts a battle royale in which each combatant has a diary with entries from the future.

Terrible characterization and writing made this agonizing for me to watch. The fan base for this also only seems to care about some pink haired chick, Yuno, who I found extremely annoying and anticipated her death for the entirety of the anime only to find a terribly written plot point where the writers tried to get you to care about this girl despite her having kidnapped and tortured people. I constantly use this as an example of how NOT to tell a story.

The main character was bland like bread, the rest of the characters weren't developed except for Yuno.

The anime itself is very good but I would say it's kind of overrated

Cool concept but the show itself bores me to death, sadly.

Don't watch this. It has a cutesy girl who behaves brattily and too smart with a dead mother!

88 Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is an anime series adapted from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga by Hiromu Arakawa.

I didn't know this one was overrated. I liked it a lot, as much as the other FMA. Both had me at the edge of my seat and I would gladly watch them again, they're way better than most action anime these days.

This anime was always in the top 5 on most best anime lists so I thought I have to watch this... and so I did. It was worth the watch, wasn't awful but wasn't amazing either I would say it was average perhaps a 6.9/10 nearly a 7. The philosopher stone, his father and the flask trying to be god got to messy and the story was no longer making sense.

It deserves all the praise it gets...

This is an amazing anime, with great characters, story, and execution. However, I will admit that it is the tiniest bit overrated, because it overshadows other masterpieces like Madoka and Kimiuso. - Absolite

90 Zatch Bell! Zatch Bell!

It's generic, badly animated, uninspired, and it has characters shoving anger at audience's faces for no reason! Oh, and don't even get me started on the English dub!

Is there anything good about this anime besides shoving characters' anger at our faces?

Oh my god the eyes! -Vestalis


91 Kill la Kill Kill la Kill Kill la Kill is an anime television series produced by Trigger. In Kill la Kill, Ryuko Matoi transfers to a new high school in order to find her father's murderer.

It is more overrated than Naruto these days.

Kill la Kill is not overrated in my eyes, it's spiritual predecessor Gurren Lagann is. - PerfectImpulseX

Gurren Lagann was the better anime series, but Kill la Kill was still good.

Replace the girls into guys would be another generic shonen anime. the only reason perverted weaboos like it because they can fap on half naked underage strippers and feminazis worship this crap because so called female empowerment bull and male characters are sidelined and portrayed as mindless perverts. this anime is misandrist and sends bad message to girls

92 Haikyuu!! Haikyuu!!

Mediocre sports anime and the soundtrack is mostly bland. - Sephigi101

It's just as overrated as Free! now that I think about it.

93 Hellsing Hellsing
94 Durarara!! Durarara!!

Very filler-ish with similar storytelling as Pulp Fiction, the worst, most unoriginal movie ever. It's also got very uninspiring theme songs and overall soundtrack. The art-style is cookie cutter cel-shaded CGI that you can find anywhere. - Sephigi101

95 K-On! K-On!

I used to like this, but after I watch some better shows, This is just Lucky Star with guitars, yet less cheerleading. And both of the shows are utterly stupid and has characters who act like 5 year olds. But If you guys like both shows, It's fine. Enjoy It. No one is stopping you(unless you're planning to see School Days or Boku No Pico) - MLPFan

K-on more like Gay-On
