It’s Day 4 on the challenge and I’m really struggling with this one. Most Overrated Anime. Mostly I don’t like using the phrase overrated because I fully belive that everyone is entitled to their opinion and if a lot of people like something, they like it for a reason. Even if it doesn’t do much for me.
But, I am going to answer this challenge because I made an agreement with myself that I would answer the questions even if I ended up giving multiple answers. That said, I’m going to slightly reinterpret the question here and make it my most overrated anime. An anime I love, that I recommend to others, that I thoroughly enjoy, but I know it really isn’t very good from any kind of objective view point.
My most overrated anime would have to be Bleach.
The story is stretched out too far, the cast expands to ridiculous levels, pretty much everyone is protected by plot armour and by the end of the third season you pretty much know the writer is not going to commit to actually doing any irreversible damage to anyone or anything of consequence. Random power ups happen because they do, characters don’t use their powers when they’d probably solve the problem, everyone talks to much during fights and fights go on too long.
Pretty much any criticism you could throw at an anime could be thrown at Bleach and it is hard to actually argue against most of those criticisms. That doesn’t stop it being awesome to watch but given how highly I might rank it on a list of favourite anime I’d have to admit that for what it actually does I’ve probably overrated it.
