    Overrated:
    Neon Genesis Evangelion... just doesn't do it for me. I realize it is certainly influential, but for me that's about it.
    Samurai 7... slowed down enough that I gave up on it

    Underrated:
    RahXephon... seems to get overlooked in favor of NGE but IMO is much better.
    Last Exile
    Heat Guy J ... damn it, this one just plain entertained me

    what are yours?

    i used to love NGE more than i love my family, but now that i think about it, it was overrated.

    Last Exile was definitely awesome.

    edit: add Seikai no Senki and Seikai no Monshou to the awesome list

    Overrated: Akira. Its ok, but people seem to make it out to be the best anime movie ever.

    Underrated: Martian Successor Nadesico. Great mix of action, drama and comedy that I almost never see get talked about.

    I agree with you on both of those!

    There are definitely others I'll have forgotten.

    underated:
    Legend of the galactic heroes. best scifi/drama ever made, hell its better than star trek. i fyou want to see how empires rise and fall you must watch this.
    Kimagure orange road: my favorite romance/comedy of the 80s, prob the best i have ever seen along with maison ikokku
    overrated:
    FF VII advent children, the movie was void of story, pretty much worthless if you had not watched the game, hell the ova anime last order was better than the full length movie.
    Gantz: started great then fell flat on its face and sucked HARD.

    Last Exile is very overrated. The art and animation is godly but the story has no impacto :o

    story isn't interesting at all. the premise has a lot of potential but the execution just sucked. should have been more hardship and tragedy.

    and that was my 30,000th post :o

    i wouldn't say last exile is either over/under rated. it was a decent anime, full of greatness but full of many things that require improvement. some characters needed a little development and some parts of the story were not dealt with long enough.

    I agree it's not perfect, but it gets so ignored by many people and glossed over. I prefer it to say the venerable NGE, but Last Exile could definitely have been better in some areas which would have probably taken it to epic for me.

    i agree with NGE being overrated. it's still good, but it's not THAT good.

    samurai 7 was pretty bad. curse my inability to stop watching something after i start it :wtc: btw, don't ever watch kiba, its fucking horrible. it starts out kinda cool, but then it gets oh so bad.

    i cant remember what else i've watched off the top of my head.

    so u say its overrated because u dont like it? well thats just your opinion then. my definition of "overrated" is something that gained a lot of attention/hype, but turned out to be not too great. for example, Evangelion garnered major hype, and i used to be fanatic about it, but now i think back and it was OK, thus i think its overrated.

    i dont remember Last Exile having major attention, at least around here (America). of course i dunno what the situation was in Japan, so my hypothesis might be a tad inaccurate.

    I didn't think I would have needed to define overrated or underrated.

    :werd: Samurai 7 had potential to be a great anime series. it started off pretty good but it really sucked from middle to end. :hs:
