I remember I read the first few volumes of the Naruto manga at the library. Then it begin to get boring and stupid, so I stopped.

When I heard CN was going to start airing the anime, I was semi-excited. After I watched it, I just wanted to blow my TV to smitherings.

I agree Naruto is very overrated. I read some of the manga(4 or 5 volumes) but it didn't really grab my attention. I really don't like the main character...

As for Fullmetal Alchemist... I love that show. I watched it as it came out, not because it was popular, but because the first couple episode grabbed me. My brother thinks it's overrated though. Sometimes people hype up a show and then it's not as good as you expected.
Inuyasha gets points for being easy to read, but it's not that great, really.

Lucky Star is based off a manga, which might explain why it is the way it is. I like it. Which reminds me, there's a few episodes I haven't watched yet...

By the way, I like Shinji and how pathetic he is XD

Although I used to like Naruto and Bleach a lot, both are not as amusing or thrilling as they were in their first arc. I'm feeling they're become a little overrated.
Though I have to say, the feeling I had with Bleach was bigger than Naruto. Simply because of the music Bleach had in the first arc. Now that original music is gone, or rarely played. They mostly use the filler arc music now... :|

The overloading fillers killed Naruto, for me, and the whole world...

Full Metal Alchemist, in regards to the topic. I just don't get what everyone loves about it. ):
I am one of those people who has it as their number one fav. anime. xD Yes, its a bit childish but it made me laugh, and i kind of related to the characters. I think the whole Alchemy thing pulled me in, in the first place; i turned out falling in love with it for way more than that. If i look at it at another angle, i kinda sorta see how someone may take it as boring. ;) Sorry, i just really loved FMA.

I never really watched Naruto. Anime's with over 200 episodes scare me. 0-0

Hmm, an over-rated anime. Ah sorry. xD I don't have one. Jeeze .. tht was supposed to be the topic of this post. I'll try and think of something i may have watched ..
I\'m new. ^-^;

Bleach is starting to get overrated. I love the mangas, but the anime is too big, TONS of merchandise everywhere, and there's the DS/Wii game... I even saw posters in Wal-Mart before. (T.T)

Graveyard of the Fireflies

I saw in a related thread about how its the saddest anime...
got it.. saw it... n was quite surprised of the abrupt ending :o.. nope .. no tears..
I think I would have felt sadder if I saw it without the expectations that it is a sad anime.

I agree with you when the fillers began i began disliking naruto.
Also mostly all anime that are over 200+ or so anime are animes that i dislike.
One such is Pokemon can't Ash become the pokemon master? Another one is Detective Conan.

i like naruto.. but i do agree it is overloaded with fillers and half the time it is a boring plot. The begining and a few choice episode stand out, but that's about it
when they bring in the Akatsuki and kimimaru and all them i just wait for something i actually understand to happen :P

Whoever doesn't know why people love Fullmetal Alchemist, should just watch it and judge it by themselves.

I agree with some people that Bleach is getting overrated with the Arrancar arc. I thought it'd have been much better, seems its not.
Naruto, once not my so liked anime, now turned into my favorites with the new arc. And it's art doesn't really count much, it's about the story anyway.

I don't care much about anything else being overrated though.
