I suppose there are actually several, but I would think they appeal more to specific demographics. I know some series that I love for their plots and progression are widely hated for their BL over/undertones (Yuri on Ice, Gravitation, No. 6, Kyo Kara Maoh!, Descendants of Darkness, and Loveless, for starters.) In other regards, there isn't a lot of love for The Mightiest Disciple Kenichi, Blue Gender, The Wallflower, Mushi-shi (probably some viewers, but I feel it hasn't been given much attention,) Ghost Hunt, Ghost Hound, Sands of Destruction, Tower of Druaga, etc. etc. I would also repeatedly play several of the "Tales" franchise just for the cutscenes....

On the other hand, I also hate many that most people like (Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, the typical, overly long, mainstream shonen--exception made for Gintama.)

Well, it'd probably help if some site was able to stream it. I know the main reason I haven't watched it is the lack of streams. I'm too lazy to search on the dark side.

Anyway, I've always felt this way about Samurai Flamenco. I absolutely loved how it got progressively more ridiculous as it went on, but whenever I see it come up in conversation, it feels like I was the only one who felt that way.


you're telling me ya can't take a trip to a little anime site that hugs and kisses you, showering you with free gifts? damn. you CAN buy the series from Australia, but you need some type of unrestricted dvd player or something.

I wouldn't say nobody, as anyone past a certain age that had cable TV had the opportunity to see it when it aired on Syfy's Ani-Monday block beginning back in August 2009. That's when I saw it.

It had also been streamed at Hulu and Netflix before Viz's license for the series expired.

dragonball, at least in the states, is overshadowed by its inferior sequel

Its surprising how many DBZ fans here have never seen dragonball.

I started with DB in the way back machine. Seriously some of the stuff with the old red ribbon army was some of the gnarliest and creepiest stuff especially with a young Gohan dealing with them. I do feel that carried over though when they started the android stuff in DBZ though. That stuff and leading up to the Cell Games was probably my fav part of DBZ.

Seriously I used to love the original Dragon Ball. It was way more comedic and witty than DBZ and onward. I did watch some of DBZ as I got older, but it just didn't hold my interest as much and I don't remember as much about it - I guess it had less impact on me. I think I probably made it to the beginning of the Cell arc before I dropped off watching it.

Anyways, in regards to the thread, I really like Serial Experiments Lain and Pet Shop of Horrors. Unfortunately PSOH only got around 4 episodes despite being an awesome manga, so it gets 0 attention and probably 0 chance of a remake or revival because of that. *cries*

Let me correct myself, nobody in their teens, or close to my age for that matter, has seen Monster. So I'm stuck having to talk about Naruto & the ilk instead. Unless I'm on Reddit, MAL, or here.

For me, it has to be Absolute Duo - A lot of people say that it is a very generic anime and the best thing about it is the OP. But I think that is quite harsh in my opinion.

I am a fan of the franchise and I've read the light novels and the story does get a lot better. It's just that the anime only has one season and is in need of another season but I don't think that'll happen anytime soon unfortunately :-(

The truth is, AD is actually one of the very first anime shows I watched, so it holds a special place in my heart .

Hoozuki no Reitetsu- I loved everything about this one but no one I talk to seems to have heard of it. Maybe because you need at least a basic grounding in Japanese/Buddhist folklore and cosmology to get a lot of it.

Mononoke- OK, the story wasn't anything special but the art style was gorgeous and different. Also had a nice spooky atmosphere.

The anime is quite awkward but this one is a true comedy. I can't remember where did I find the anime, is Abenobashi Mahou Shotengai
You can't really understand what's going on, I've watched twice and still have holes in my mind

Log Horizon.

While tons of people give Sword Art Online tons of attention -- most particularly negative attention -- those same people seem to outright neglect Log Horizon, even though it did a lot of things that SAO and other MMORPG anime could never accomplish. Its main-protagonist chose a support class, just so that he could focus more on leadership and strategic planning. This, in-turn, allowed his friends and allies to shine in ways companion characters in other anime wouldn't. And the reason was so that it could reinforce its MMORPG mechanics and culture, versus providing a dumb, oversimplistic power fantasy similar to SAO.


I'm here for you. We Log Horizon fans are still out there. You are not alone.

Seriously, Log Horizon was one of the first anime I watched and played a role in introducing anime to me. It still holds a spot as one of my favorite shows.

not in rank order and many other choices are left out.....

Original version of Neon Genesis Evangelion,
Koi Kaze (both anime and manga though manga was a little more graphic),
Rumbling Hearts aka Kimi ga Nozomu Eien (truly wish original game would get English translation and reintroduced to US market),
Accel World,
The Eccentric Family (S1 & S2),
Speed Grapher (damn, I wish this show would get updated with the kinkier parts left in),
Dead Leaves (it's Deadman Wonderland on steroids),
Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt (so much potential...at least some of that got redirected into Kill la Kill),
Polar Bear Cafe.
