I'll admit i watched spirited away quite a bit ago, Maybe mid 09? but i jsut had the urge to write my thoughts on why i have it on my "most overated anime" list.
And here are my thoughts:
The characters were great and all but the story wasn't as satisfying as the reviews and hype made me believe, Maybe i expected too much, But my opinion doesn't matter anyway.
To me it seemed too geared towards children, Maybe if i had watched it when i was younger i would like it today due to nostalgia, Which is why i think it has such good reviews.
Thats all and i hope if anyone reads this they wont start flaming me for being too closed minded towards it.
