An assault of this magnitude on the beloved greats of the anime world has not passed without comment – indeed, there is a certain amount of long-voiced irritation about the pathetically short attention spans they seem to illustrate:

“No way are these ‘overrated’ – they are just the anime with the most viewers to make a fuss about them.”

“They are just ordered by popularity! Especially after 5, they are just popular ones which accumulated lots of haters.”

“It’s more about popularity than overratedness really.”

“What it is is a ‘anime I hate but which are popular anyway’ ranking.”

“Another hater ranking! They always end up turning into popularity rankings anyway.”

“They are all selling rather well in any case.”

“It’s meaningless as these rankings are just determined by the proportionate numbers of their fans.”

“How Bleach can be overrated when nobody rated it in the first place is an interesting question…”
