I think Video Girl A.I. is a anime I loved that no one really knows about or Record of Lodoss War


Yakumo Fuji From 3x3 Eyes
He is eternal
he goes through more abuse than anyone ever
He knows living demon spells
He spent year learning Martial Arts to be a better fighter for Pai
He makes FUCKING GRENADES out of Oolong Tea Cans.

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan
Maybe a lot of people have heard of it, but Nura is hardly talked about. It's a really great series. I love all the characters in here.

Angel's Egg




Cat Soup




Franz Kafka's A Country Doctor




Dead Leaves



All four of these are quite surreal in their own way. All carry heavy and dark meaning as well with the possible exception of Dead Leaves which is like FLCL on crack.If you want to see something different, any of these titles will be something fresh and unique. Dead Leaves is for the extremely ADHD and Angel's Egg is for those with great patience. The others are in between.

Welp someone already suggested Planetes... (not that it was THAT obscure)

Silver spoon :P


Please. Silver Spoon doesn't qualify as an anime that "not too many people know about."

But if we're gonna talk about underrated slice of life shows... (Since I actually like the genre)


GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class


Sakura Quest


And one Iyashikei for good measure

Tamayura

Thanks, Tamayura was new to me and good. These types of threads are always nice for finding hidden gems.

Also, since I skipped the second question in my original post, Chito from Girl's Last tour is low key awesome.

You're welcome! Since I'm a fan of Aria The Animation, I tend to keep an eye on what Satou Junichi is working on. So, that's how I found it.

I don't think CR has the Tamayura: More aggressive, or the 4 part Tamayura: Sotsugyou Shashin; in case you want more, and can find them. They're not in my region, anyways.

Huh, they adapted one of Kafka's work?

Color me surprised.

Never thought I would see someone else mention GA Geijutsuka Art Design class. That's usually my go to for these sorts of things, but it seems it was already mentioned.

Hmm... let me see.

Well Rocket Girls is definitely one. Turned out to be an amazing series with great characters (even if the visuals admittedly didn't age well). I massively enjoyed it, despite never hearing anyone ever talk about it. I found it while searching randomly (literally) through an anime database.

Oniisama e... is another brilliant one. That great grandmother of yuri titles long since forgotten. Deserves to be mentioned more along with its daughter, Marimite, and the grandchildren that followed like Strawberry Panic.

There's also Kokoro Library - a series that may be gaining recognition thanks to certain posters about it online (I found it through them myself). A wondrously charming slice-of-life series I've rarely heard anyone mention - and never on this site, I think.

Heh, beat you to it.

I'm actually watching Oniisama e... right now. (I should probably rewatch Marimite ... it's been a few years). But, I've added your other suggestions to my list just based on the Oniisame e suggestion and the GA mention.

The more exposure GA gets the better, so I'm thrilled someone actually beat me to it. Tamayura as well. That was actually the show that made me start paying attention to Junichi Satou myself. I had already seen Aria, and saw a certain very elusive poster on this site mention that he wanted to watch Aria because Tamayura was his favorite and it was by the same guy. It was just the reverse for me.

Oniisama e... was great for me precisely because it satiated that craving I had for something similar to Marimite. It's still very different, but Its the only other show I found that was remotely comparable in tone. Here's hoping you enjoy it! I myself am tempted to rewatch Marimite as well.

I should clarify though that none of those were necessarily meant as suggestions ~ just shows I personally enjoyed that not many people mention. My tastes have always been somewhat... peculiar.

Heh, my tastes have... erm.. diversified... over time. I saw nothing on either show's page on MAL that scared me away. Never hurts to try new (well old) shows.

I actually recently 'acquired' all 4 seasons of marimite and have been waiting to rewatch them. I'll probably get around to that once I finish Oniisama e.. and catch up on certain Josei and Seinen shows I've been meaning to watch (that are now plastered all over the 2017 battle topic.. can't bring myself to vote since I haven't seen them yet).
