    Default Anime You Won't Watch Because of the Hype?

    Has there ever been an anime or more than one anime that you simply can't bring yourself to watch because it has so much hype and unrealistic expectations? Maybe it seems like everyone is trying to cram that anime down your throat as the best of all time and you just become uninterested.

    For me I'd have to say Clannad and One Piece. I've heard so much about those anime and how they're so fantastic and nothing measures up until I refuse to watch them. It's not out of spite or anything but the concept of watching it just seems dull and boring.

    What do you think?

    I have not, sounds kinda dumb to me haha. I have however stopped watching hyper up shows simply because I didnt like them after I saw them with my own eyes. Cowboy Bebop is one example, but that was many years ago.

    Try and forget the hype and give One Piece a chance, I personally love it ;> Its defintely worth a try with your own eyes, if you manage to change your mindset and not expect it to be the best ever made (although it prob is in my eyes haha, but thats just me) then it will be worth it.

    Forget the hype and watch it because you want to watch it! If it's hyped up, there must be something good about it, no?
    There have been some shows that were being talked about like crazy but because of that I decided to watch them and for the most part, they lived up to the talk. (i.e. Code Geass, FMA Brotherhood) so really, you never know until you actually watch it yourself.

    Oh, and as a Clannad lover, and it being my #1 anime, you should at least give it a chance! D:

    No. I always give them a chance, and then decide whether or not to continue the series.

    You gave Bebop a chance and didn't like it, as she might give One Piece the same chance and also, might not like it.
    Though I respect your opinion, I think Bebop was one of the best anime ever.

    I gave One Piece a six episode trial... so far nothing impressed me even though nothing really happens in six episodes. Things such as Clannad... As much as I like feels and angst I just.... it doesn't look appealing to me. I've watched two Key animations; Angel Beats and AIR tv, AIR being the only one worth watching, where as Angel Beats was basically as boring as spit. I give most things a chance. I did with Death Note and found it wasn't as great as I thought it would be. I suppose Clannad and One Piece just fall flat with me.

    But I respect everyone has their own opinion. Something I may think is a great anime others may hate. To be honest I don't think the world's best anime actually exists, it's all a matter of opinion.

    the only thing that will really dissuade me from watching something is if there is simply too much or too many for me to feel like its worth the time. Dragonball for example is one that a lot of my friends tell me is really good but I look at that series and think "where does one start?" Then I say "Oh well" because it would take too much time to complete the saga anyway.

    I don't like to judge something because of it being too hyped and generally I'll give any anime a chance, but I actually haven't been able to make myself watch Hetalia yet because of that.

    It's EVERYWHERE. I've had a million different people, including a few close friends, tell me I need to watch it. One of my friends kept trying to make me read her manga she got of it when we went to Anime Banzai last year. I do want to watch it eventually, but I honestly don't think I'll be able to until my friends calm down about it. It looks hilarious, it really does. I just can't make myself sit down and watch it.

    I think the problem I have with One Piece and Clannad is that EVERYONE keeps telling me to watch it. I've had several people tell me to watch One Piece and then constantly ask me if I watched to the point the watching the show for enjoyment looses all purpose and you end up watching it to make the person shut up a little. I want to sit down and give a series a chance on my own terms. I may eventually watch One Piece but I have no interest in the other.

    On a side note Hetalia IS hilarious but not near worth all the hype it gets, in my opinion.

    I also dont like watching a show just because of someone else. 6 episodes I would say is a fair chance for most shows (I sometimes even drop a show after 1-2 ep lol). But when you look at One Piece, a shounen anime that is closing in on 600 episodes, I wonder if its really enough to evaluate it. I personally loved the show from the get-go, some people however say that the beginning is rather weak and it doesnt really pick up until after a while, whether that could be the case for you I do not know, but I just thought i'd mention it ^^

    I was extremely put off of Kuroshitsuji because of all the fangirls that it had, but I decided to give it a chance and I had to drop it after about six episodes, the hype it had just made me unable to like it for some reason.

    Pretty much. They bug you and bug you until you're finally like "FINE!" and watch it, but you're so frustrated from them bugging you that you probably won't like it anyways, even if you would on regular conditions. This is why I'm waiting for Hetalia. I want a fair opinion.

    Eh. I've done this once, though Ive read parts of the manga so I feel its different. Gintama. I cant stand it sometimes. I take suggestions and give almost everything a chance, but watch shows at my own pace. I like most shows people don't actually, but when Gintama is the only anime another website talks about, it gets annoying.

    For me, I don't like watching anime that is too famous. Whatever it is. Anime that is too famous or that's being talked about for years usually have too many episodes to catch up. And for sure I can never keep up with the newest episodes that is being aired.

    For example Bleach and Naruto. They are good anime none the less, but I just dont feel like watching them. Aside from the too much filler, just to keep up with the manga, the episodes has reached to its hundreds.

    And besides we'll never know if the hype is only because the anime is currently on air . And when the series finishes no one will remember them.

    God I hate the pretentious assholes who cling on to the misconception that this series is anything more than glorified fanservice shat out by a writer who gets his ideas by doing acid
    I don't care if the anime is actually good, I refuse to watch it.
    I also hate SHAFT.

    There's actually a website that talks about Gintama constantly? lol

    On another note, I HATED the first episode of Magi but Eventually I got over it and gave it a second try and found out it's actually really good. I'm reading the manga now and it's a lot better.

    I can't with Gurren Lagann after episode 10... it hurt my feels too bad.
    Bleach I understand and I know a lot of people won't watch Fairy Tail and that's fine.
    But I refuse to go into talking about Gintama because I'm WAY to biased in my opinion haha

    For me, hype has caused me to put off watching an anime, but I've never been completely dissuaded from watching an anime simply because it's 'mainstream'. It just takes me longer to finally get around to watching it. I'm also one of the those who believe that there's no such thing as a 'bad' anime. Do I think there are some animes that more well-made than others? Of course. Do I enjoy some animes more than others? Duh. However, out of all the animes I've watched, I've never come across a series that I thought was horrible or stupid. I just may not have liked it very much.

    With that said, I think it largely depends on preferences and tastes. Just as people have different preferences in music, people are going to have different tastes in anime. So, no one should get upset simply because such-and-such doesn't like 'insert popular anime here'.

    Oh and although major animes with large number of episodes such as Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, etc. look intimidating to try and catch up to, it can be done! I started watching One Piece when it had over 520 episodes. >_< But, I did it! It took me like a week and a half, but I did it. I was apprehensive at first to try and tackle the giant beast, but once I started, I figured out that I couldn't stop until I was completely caught up. xD So if you're in need of an anime and want to be kept busy for awhile, try tackling one of the super animes that have tons of episodes.
