From this season Yuru Camp, A Place Further than the Universe, Kokkoku and After the Rain are all beautifully executed and praised by those that watch them, but the weird thing is almost nobody has actually bothered to check them out. These are all high grade titles and its a shame they are being overlooked by so many.

Edit: To be clear the titles I listed aren't necessarily shows that got snubbed in their reviews but rather the average anime watcher simply never discovered them. I think most of the stuff I listed scores at least a high seven to mid eight on MAL which is why its so mind blowing that people still don't know of them.

Busou Shinki and Ziapng are for sure my two favorite "underrated" anime.

Agree with the Zipang pick. I should re-watch it again; it's been 6 years at least. Maybe recently I felt Kiznaiver got lost in the onslaught of new anime every 3 months. There's really just so many shows nowadays that pile up cour after cour; and with such a huge breadth and depth of choice it's deceiving to call anything truly "underrated". We're allowed a wealth of options so that we can pick series that best fit our tastes and aesthetics and not because we somehow found a "hidden gem". More importantly, it's shortsighted to say that there isn't a good amount of other fans of the same exact things you are, no matter how obscure or overlooked.

Slice of Life wise, Hidamari Sketch and Kiniro Mosaic are two of my ultimate favorites. Hidamari is memed on certain Image boards occasionally but no actual discussion of the Show, and the incredible depth that it had. And Kinmoza hardly gets mentioned at all. It seems as if it's constantly overshadowed by Gochuumon wa Usagi Desuka, which is sadly probably my LEAST favorite Slice of Life anime.

Acchi Kocchi also comes to mind, as well as Minami-ke. All great Shows that if You're as big of a Slice of Life fan as I am, You'll totally love.

The ABSOLUTE GRANDDADDY of the Slice of Life genre is Lucky☆Star...which is also probably my favorite Anime of ALL TIME.

I totally agree about Hoozuki no Reitetsu. I was actively looking for fun new anime to watch last season and yet I never even heard of Hoozuki until I stumbled across it about a week ago. I don't know why it was completely off the radar for me, but it seems nobody was watching or talking about this awesome show while it was airing. It's for reasons like this that I will always go check out threads and lists like this one.

"(doesn't have to be underrated)" doesn't make sense in that sentence or in a topic that you yourself named "Underrated anime" (I've renamed it to "Favorite Underrated Anime" to better match your description.)

For purposes of this thread, people should not just be posting any favorites, but should be sticking to favorites that they believe have been underrated. If you just want to see what people's favorites in general are, go look at the Favorite Anime thread.
