So in my humble opinion there are many anime shows, especially recent ones, that are really hyped but not good or not as good as their hype would let you think. So in order to save time and or warn people to not expect too much from an anime, I'd like to make this OAWT (Overhyped Anime Warning Thread).

The comments should NOT include spoilers, especially not something like "the plottwist is stolen by XYZ". That would really suck.
Try to just include data like:
-Reasons why it is bad (repetitiveness, unoriginality, hollow characters)
-Reasons why it is hyped even though it is not that good f.e.
>it's hyped because the main character makes a good waifu, but the rest of the show is trash

I'll start by replying to my own post.

My first one would be obviously: Darling in the Franxx

The anime made a ridiculously good waifu that's got it all. The style, the horns, the split personality. That is basically why the character is hyped, not really the show.
Prepare to watch a boring ass anime with a plot that is 80% NGE and a Character-relationship-lore that is 100% a copy of Elfen Lied
It is still fun to watch most of the time, actually really good in the first episodes. Expect to like her but not the anime.

My 2nd and last one for now is:

Trust me, this show is a hot piece of garbage.
It starts really good (even for an isekai) and really makes you want to watch. The gates that are opened in the first episodes make you wonder about what's going to happen.
But after a few episodes it really becomes a sore and boring show without any character development at all.
The only thing that really is good about this show is the character design of Ram and Rem. It is simple but brilliant. The rest is for the trash can.
Worst MC of all time(!)
The show completely destroys the concept of deaths for every other anime you watch as well, because all the time someone dies and gets revived by going back in time.
Also the second season (24 episodes!) consist out of 2 things (not really a spoiler)
-50% of the time the MC cries and whines
-the other 50% Emilia does the exact same thing

I honestly regret having watched this show from the depths of my heart.


Jojo's bizarre adventure.

I honestly don't get the appeal of this show at all. The characters look incredibly ugly and like a mere paper cut will kill them all thanks to how extremely bara they look. They look better at 12 than at whatever age they are when they're grown up, because they don't even look like 12 when they're 12 but more like normal human beings. People love to praise the "uniqueness" of this show but it's just very ugly and boring. Oh no, Dio is so evil he killed a dog! Oh no, Dio is so corrupted he just stole this girls first kiss!… Dio is very boring.

My friend forced me to watch this with him for the first time ever, kept telling me that it's a very good show I'll end up loving and after a whole season I still cannot stand this show and don't plan on watching more of it either. The fans are also extremely annoying. Whenever someone says anything, there has to be a Jojo retard saying "omg was that a jojo reference XD" as if it's the funniest shit ever.


Of Japanese content, anime has always been the gateway. What you need to realize is that all anime is an advertisement. It's all either an adaptation to promote manga/LN/WN sales, or an anime original by a studio, hoping to be successful enough to land an adaptation gig.
tl/dr just read the manga or novel, if you like it try the anime


Jin Roh. It's standard art house shlock that despite moving at a snails pace, doesn't spend any time to set up the characters or world that are so important to it.. Maybe the manga is better, but based on the movie I don't really want to read it. It feels like most of the fans are just in it for the techno nazi iconography or they think it's so deep because it's the first non action movie they've ever seen.

And usually most animes can be a dissapointment, sad but true. Only a few are actually good if you care about some details.
I thought this was only me when I watched it, because everyone hypes it up so much, and even the "cool parts" last seconds.

I know it its not technically anime but…
I found the Attack on Titan manga really disappointing.

I really didn't like any of the characters, they all kinda seemed 2 dimensional, especially Eren and Mikasa. They felt more like plot devices with dialogue rather than characters. I could easily picture replacing them with other generic anime characters and it having no real difference to the plot
The pacing was a bit weird, too. It was like it was too slow but also too fast at the same time. Some plot pints didn't take enough time to get to, but other plot points took unnecessarily long to get to.
The world building was kinda lazy. A lot of it was done through exposition dumps, or paragraphs in-between chapters
tl;dr I liked the concept but not the execution.

Take this with a grain of salt, it's been a while since I've read any of it, and I don't read/watch a lot of manga/anime.

I'm mostly dislike it so much because a friend forced me to read it and I ended up feeling like I wasted my time.

Side note: it pisses me off to no end that they have super advanced movement gear, but they weren't able to progress past fucking blackpowder grapeshot like holy shit put some research into actual artillery and maybe make something better than smoothbore cannons you pathetic gremlin-people.
