This topic is about your favorite anime/manga title that's almost impossible to find in stores, ebay, streams, or for download. Most rare anime are either OLD or not subbed in english.

My favorite rare anime titles are Galaxy Express 999. Most of the series is being translated by Live-eviL and 20 episodes are already uploaded on CR. But if you find this on ebay then you'll know that there selling this title for $3000! O.o And there are only a few listed.

Bobby's in deep and Nineteen19.

The import is long out of print and no fansubs are said to exist.
I've been wanting to get these so badly. I have been looking for all the anime on ANN protoculture's "Buried Treasure" column, but it is pretty damn hard to find them.

Galaxy Express 999 is probably only an R4 on the obscure-o-meter according to ANN.
The import is hard to find, but since it can easily be found on fansubs, it really isn't that rare.

I haven't even heard of an anime that reached an R7 or an R8 on the obscure-o-meter
Basically those two were either in limited release when imported and no one made fansubs or they were never on the market to being with and again no fansubs were made.

Birdy the Mighty is an amazing OVA!

I haven't found any rare manga or anime yet... although it is kinda hard for me to find the original japanese version of Shonan Junai Gumi.


So is the shonan junai gumi in japanese manga rare? Or the one in english? Because I have the ones for english and it's those compacted 300 page volumes. I think you can get those at Barnes and Nobles.

Hmm i don't even know some rare anime titles but its mostly should involve animes that appeared before the 90s or so. They are so rare because they are classical animes that started the Anime's we have today.

But Galaxy Express 999 is a rare anime title because it was first released 1977 and thats just the manga. The first original run of the Tv Anime with 113 Episodes from 14 September 1978 – 9 April 1981. Anyways its not surprising that if u look it up in ebay as u say its $3000 dollars. From 2007...it has been 30 years since that anime was made.

And the individual volumes are damn near impossible to find.

I know it'll never happen but I think Speed Racer in the original Japanese would be the most perfect rare to find. I've always loved S.R. and it's a shame that some lush in New England area (I think) has all the rights to it and is being very stingy.
