A lot of the anime that people listed here as "rare" or "obscure" were very popular titles in their time. They just aren't that well known now.

I've probably watched quite a few real rare gems, I just don't remember their names lol. Back in the 90s and early 2000s, anime conventions (in the US) was a very different affair than it is now. Much smaller, less commercialized and if you had a multi-day pass and you stayed in one of the nearby hotels, you could go to some of the late night anime screenings. If you went to some of the smaller "tents" they would screen fan subbed or even just straight up raw ripped animes. Most of the animes in the small tents were very obscure and I doubt they ever got licensed in the US. The more famous titles were usually shown in the bigger tents.

Anyway, here's my list, some are obscure, some are well known, but just hard to find, that is, rare.

Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoiyo Masaru-san!! - yes, long ass name, but somehow I remember it, probably because it was just so weird. Probably one of the first gag/humor type anime I've seen.

Tenchi Muyo. - The first OVA (I think it's called the Ryo Oki version or something like that) It was 13 episodes and the ending sort of left you hanging. I saw a new box set selling on amazon for like $600. Even used the cheapest is going for around $60.

Future Boy Conan - excellent series, one of Hayao Miyazaki's early works (released in 1978 I think). I'm sure there's copy of this floating around somewhere, considering how famous the director has become...

Record of Lodoss War (OVA) - maybe a bit obscure as well, definitely hard to find.

Gundam X - The "lost" Gundam series. came out after Gundam Wing, but before Endless Waltz, so it straddled the Gundam Wing franchise. It was not released in the US, at least not to my knowledge. Personally, I liked it better than Wing (and Wing is one of my favorite anime). The series focused more on the relationships between the characters rather than the politics of that Gundam world.

All of these titles are fairly old, haven't seen much newer anime that I would call obscure...

I remember back when I was young (it was at least in '93) when I saw the first anime I recall seeing, the 80s dub of Mazinger Z. There was also an anime version of the Wizard of Oz that I saw some episodes of.

I'll tackle rare and unknowns in my collection:

- The original Pokemon seizure episode

- Ninteen/19

- Ninja Ryukenden OAVs

- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles OAVs

- Crystal Triangle OAV

...and there's more but I'd have to seriously dig. These are just off the top of my head.
