Hundreds of people, all dressed as the same EXACT person gathering in one spot. ZERO originality. In anycase. I think the most underrated anime...well, eh the only one that comes to mind is Serial Experiments Lain. For as philosophical as it was, it HARDLY gained any popularity. Perhaps simple minded people found its intellectual concepts too difficult to comprehend.

    Overrated

    Chobits (see above)
    Ghost In The Shell (sooo overrated...at least the movie is, I can't comment on the series since I haven't watched it)
    Excel Saga
    Love Hina (Ok, I love this anime, but it does get a bit too much hype)

    Underrated

    I'm more of an old-school fan, so the Fullmetal Alchemist stuff is new to me. I've seen the name Naruto all over the web though, so I guess it's safe to agree that it is overexposed. Im' sick of hearing about it, and I've never seen it.

    Agent Orange- If you like the Vampire Hunter D movie, you should check out the sequel, although the story isn't as good.

    My vote for underrated goes to FLCL, but seeing as though I've been out of the anime scene for so long, I don't know if this is truly the case. It blew me away. The style and music is like nothing I've seen before. I see we have some fans though (Innerhell and Tasukuchan)

    ....You never really hear Lunar Legend Tsukihime OR Haibane Renmei mentioned, either! Both of which Geneon RELEASED! Actually, I'm not too sure if Geneon released Haibane Renmei, but I am assuming they did, seeing how Lain was. Meh, pretty much...whatever Adult Swim airs on TV is popular. Although it's NOT always the case, it's generally the rule of thumb. I enjoyed Lunar Legend Tsukihime! Elfen Lied, released by ADV, deserves an honorable mention as well...

    MOD Edit: Don't Double Post. There's a EDIT button to add text to a post!!!

    ...What is odd is that Gainax (now a dissolved company), the Studio who created Neon Genesis Evangelion, also created FLCL. Surprisingly, FLCL never took on the popularity that NGE did. Many similarities can be seen between these two animes, but people don't stop and take the time to appreciate FLCL. I don't like popular OR long, drawn out animes. 40 episodes is usually the cutoff line, I like something that IS collectible and affordable. FLCL, in a nutshell, fit the bill.

    gotta love FLCL
    short and simple (or maybe a little complex)
    6 episodes of anime perfection and The Pillows
    13-40 episodes is like the standard in most anime series
    more than that is usually just too much

    hmm...
    Cowboy Bebop? maybe a little overrated? no?
    I love my girlfriend.
