Likewise. If I won the lottery, this would be one anime on my "I would like to pay to fund another season" list.

This was also one of those anime that made me glad I am a completionist. When I first started it, I didn't care for it much. I remember looking at the number of episodes and thinking, "I hope this gets better, or it is going to be a lot to slog through". Before I reached the end I was thinking, "Why aren't there 100 episodes of this"?

Flowers of Evil, just because it grabs you, despite the animation, which in my opinion suits very well with the whole story and it's not that bad. It started off slow but at every ending of the episodes, it just made you want to know what's going to happen, finding yourself watching the next episode.

Most of the shows mentioned so far are actually popular though.


If I had to pick some that I love, but seems to get really little attention it would be:

Nijuu Mensou no Musume (The Daughter of Twenty Faces)
- The story focuses around Chiko, and her interactions with the world & The Twenty Faces. The Twenty Faces is a gang lead by Twenty Faces, they travel around the world stealing art and other valuable things.

I've watched it two times, and both times the ending made me feel so sad that I might have felled a tear or two. Searching for fan art based on this anime is neigh-impossible. You might find like... 10 images on certain sites if lucky.

Michiko to Hatchin
- After escaping from prison, the sexy criminal Michiko rescues an abused girl known as Hatchin. The two are about as opposite as they come, but their fates become intertwined through the connection of a man from both their pasts. On the run from the police and Hatchin's abusive foster parents, the unlikely duo set out to find this man and ultimately discover their freedom.

Lovely anime set in a country that might remind you of South America and such. It's pretty good, but I rarely see or hear much talk about it.

The franchise is insanely popular in Japan, but considering most of you guys have and probably will never see the show I thought I'd mention Heartcatch Precure.

i dont think flowers of evil is unpopular by any means.

But, mine would be hyouge mono. its a daring show set in the sengoku period, but insted of being about a famous general's epic feats, it gives us the life of a lower ranking officer, who may have more passion for the arts than making war. hes love for the tea ceremony and faithfullness to oda nobunaga come in conflict in many situations, and often result in hilarious moments of despair for him, and shows some of the more eccentric parts of the period and nobunaga. its also got a quite stylish flair, while not over the top. i recommend people checking this out.

I've got a bunch of niche or lesser known anime, but nothing I think I'd call genuinely unpopular. Unless I could pick a specific arc from within an anime, in which case I'd say the Endless Eight arc from The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi.


Ah yeah, I agree with this. Admittedly eight whole episodes may have been a tad excessive compared to the original prose or even the manga, and it was probably more annoying for those who actually watched it a week at a time as it aired, but I honestly don't think it deserves all the intense hate it gets. People seem to forget about the whole other half of series 2 due to this, too

Yuyushiki is hilarious, but I can see people being put off by the style.

"Listen Girls, I am your father"

It was short, a little ecchi, but in the end it wasn't what I expected and I loved it for that. It was great for how many people actually watched it.

Have you ever read the 12 Kingdoms novels? There are things in there that did not get adapted to the anime. But yeah, the anime should of had more episodes.
