"All flash but no substance" shows!

Do you what is the most overhyped(not overrated) shows that you know?

But please no Naruto/Bleach/One Piece/DBZ/Hitman Reborn because I already knew how bad they are.

Do you want to watch these hyped shows? They don't seem to be suggestions though...

Death Note is a good call here. It's fun in a sort of pulp way, but it's not the complex, thoughtful masterpiece it's sometimes made out to be.

Yeah... Death Note in a few words is like a show about a super genius... written by a high school dropout (and not due to supreme arrogant intelligence).

Oh come on, it's not like anyone could write the DN story. It has substance so stop mentioning it.

?

Are you serious or that's sarcasm? I'll burst out laughing if you're serious.

Anyway, Tenjou Tenge.

Most of the people who hate on Death note are just sour-socks over their favorite character dying and want to take it out on the show…Trust me I’ve debated this a million times…Many people don’t even understand many of the intricate details of the plot anyways…Death Note is an artistic classic with a completely original story for it’s context (DN has no substance? Puhleeeze)…You want some overhyped $hit to watch? Try Claymore, Shuffle, Black Lagoon, and Code Geass Season 2 (Season 1 is tight though)…You’ll have a ball with these titles…

From what I can read from the first post, he's asking - in his own way - about which shows enjoyed a lot of pupularity when they were announced and while they aired (if they are worth it or not doesn't appear to be the issue). So um sorry, "Death Note" fits.

Well it seems I'm the only one who read the opening like that...

From the other people who respond to me:

1. Code Geass and Death Note:

Already seen both and I liked both seasons of Code Geass. Yes, I'm not joking. While I agree it don't deserved some of the credits but I never thought it was overhyped. As for Death Note, I dropped somewhere in episode 13-14. More like "spoiled for you" case.

2. Umineko:

Urghh, no thanks.

3. Bastard and Hellsing:

Again, no thanks.

4. Tenjo Tenge:

Will check it out later if I had access to it.

5. Claymore, Shuffle and Black Lagoon:

For Shuffle, even though I already seen some harem shows but I'm not big fan of the genre. As for Claymore and Black Lagoon, they are only hyped by some certain people but everybody else.

Are you asking for a suggestion for over-hyped show so you can watch them? I can't figure that out from reading the above from your opening post. Also an example to show the difference between how you define "overhyped" and "overrated" would clear things up a bit more.

I'm surprised you've got a few response in the thread by remaining as vague as it is. I know I tend to steer clear of threads that are too assuming and overbearing just like this one.

Personally I dont think Reborn is over hyped at all, if you look at the post replies on this forum, its hard as heck to find people to discuss it...but thats just me.

Im with monir, I dont quite get the point of this thread but if youre looking for over hyped anime, I say Geass and Gundam 00.
