Hey Guys back with another Midseason Underrated thread for the Fall 2014 season this time!

How do you feel this season is going thus far? I personally think it's been a great season with a lot of good variety to choose from.

What are you watching right now that you feel isn't getting the attention it deserves? What should we all be watching that maybe we aren't watching right now?

There are alot of bigger titles this season like Parasyte and Fate/stay night, but there's alot of gem's less known,

My personal choices would be

Rage of Bahamut- The characters are awesome and the story is pretty cool as well. It really reminds me a lot of the anime i used to watch back when i fell in love with anime. Def's think people should give a it a shot.
Akatsuki no Yona- Perfect blend of Romance and suspense/action! The character progression has been pretty decent as well so far.
Your Lie In April - Not the most underrated show of the season, but still deserves to be watched for beautiful artwork and storytelling.

Let me know what your favorite underrated shows of the season are so far!

Well from the ones you haven't listed :

Amagi Brilliant Park --- Unique and funny show based on an LN by the same author as Full Metal Panic.

Madan no Ou to Vanadis --- The pacing on this one is a bit fast, but really good RPGish war / romance anime. It feels like it could be a Tales of... game.

Good Tales or bad Tales, Jing? I don't want to try getting into something that reminds me of Tales of the Tempest.

Tales of Graces is what it reminds me of. I really liked Graces though, but it's your choice.

Graces (F) is good. *stamp of approval* So it is.

But I have had Vanadis on my list of maybes for a while due to the fact that I like the director (from Nadesico and Bodacious Space Pirates).

I'm only calling it underrated cuz I don't see a lot of people talking about it, so it might be overrated in Japan. *shrug*

Magic Kaito 1412 - some people were hesitant to start this cuz they aren't familiar with Detective Conan, have an overload of Fall shows, or the character design. This show is a bit goofy sometimes (I mean, it's about a phantom thief outwitting bumbling police using magic tricks), but for me it hasn't stopped being entertaining. Plus, the music is so damn good!

It's Spring? I didn't know I went back in time...

I guess I'd have to go with Bahamut. It's been consistently good so far and pretty much everyone here who watches it loves it... but that's not a lot of people. A new episode brings about 7-9 people to discuss and then the thread gets quiet for the rest of the week. The OP is definitely one of the most popular of the season but the show itself doesn't have much discussion, especially compared to Parasyte, SAO, etc. It's probably not the most underrated but given how amazing the series is and how little hype there is for this, it's definitely one of the first that comes to mind.

none i've watched this season is underrated.

As for Yona of the dawn, although I like it, it's definitely not underrated. It's not a deep story or characterisation of such sort that i would expect people to praise for. it's a basic story that even a 10 years old could write...

Akatsuki no Yona definitely belongs in the "underrated" category. Then again, who you mean it's underrated by changes things—I'm just assuming the broad simulcast watching community.

Garo's probably a bit underrated, too, but I don't think it's super exceptional or anything. Just a strong offering that's probably underwatched for the quality it presents (last episode's messy visuals aside).
