When you think about anime, what comes to mind?
Is it the sheer amount of anime you’ve seen, or the sheer number of people who’ve watched it?
Or is it the lack of actual content in the show?
Overflow is the term anime fans use to refer to anime that is not being released on a regular basis.
Overflow anime has existed since the late 90s.
It’s a genre of anime that focuses on overproduced anime and other shows that have been rushed to the detriment of the quality.
In the late 2000s, anime fans used this term to describe shows that had been rushed into production and thus lacked the quality of previous anime releases.
The term Overflow came about after some anime fans came up with a way to quantify anime’s production.
The term OverFlow means a show is rushed, as opposed to a show that is produced as quickly as possible, thus showing no promise of delivering quality.
The anime industry is notorious for producing a flood of new anime releases every year, which makes it easy to label these shows as Overflow.
The problem with Overflow anime is that it’s an oversimplification of how a show should be made.
A show’s quality doesn’t really change, it just changes in the hands of its creators.
There’s no point in labeling a show as OverFlow if its quality is so low as to be considered garbage.
