Hi everyone, I know a lot of people have seen what's on the popular list and want to watch something else.

So in saying that:

1. I'm trying not to pick those, so if anyone comments with "why not (place popular anime like Akame Ga Kill or No Game No Life here)" it's so that people can watch what else Crunchyroll has to offer.

2. I like all these anime and if you don't like them please don't hate on them maybe they just weren't for you.

3. If you have any other pics feel free to comment them, I probably seem like a grump now, but there is a lot to offer on Crunchyroll and I certainly haven't seen them all so if you think I missed some feel free to comment

4. Please don't pick on other people's choices too.


Okay I'll give everyone a short description on each of these anime:

Pick no.1

Tsuritama



It's a funny comedy about an alien that comes to earth in search of a giant fish? The anime follows the main character Yuki who moves town and well, he has a unique personality when his grandma allows an alien named Haru into his home to live with them, things get really weird, I really like this anime it's not extremely serious but has an interesting and unique story line.


Pick no.2

Inu x Boku



Ririchiyo is a powerful demon thing(I can remember their name >.<) and she recently moves into an apartment complex with other powerful demon things, she gets assigned a body guard and she doesn't want him as she thinks she doesn't need a guard and she tries to fire him but as the past unravels these two slowly fall in love with each other


Pick no.3

My Little Monster




one of my favorite romance anime this story follows Shizuku who is one of the smartest in her school and Haru a misunderstood man who has a bad reputation, Shizuku has a stereotypical personality but it works really well when placed next to Haru who has a vary bizarre and unique personality


Pick no.4


Cuticle Detective Inaba



The story revolves around Hiroshi Inaba, a private detective, and part-wolf-part-human being who was created artificially. Hiroshi runs his own detective agency and solves cases with the help of his cross-dressing secretary Yuuta, and Kei, a "relatively normal" teenager


Pick no.5

Beyond The Boundary



Mirai Kuriyama, is the last surviving member of her cursed family. Akihito Kanbaru is the feared immortal half-youmu. Alone they are the outcasts in their society; together they're the oddball duo that can't get along.

Pick no.6

Gatchman Crowds



The series takes place in the early summer of 2015 and is set in the city of Tachikawa, Japan. A "second metropolis" of Tokyo, Tachikawa is protected by the Gatchaman, warriors who fight in special reinforced suits powered by the manifestation of their spiritual powers called NOTE. Following the introduction of their newest member, the energetic and cheerful Hajime Ichinose, the Gatchaman must deal with their greatest threat, an enigmatic alien creature bent on destroying Earth just like it did with several other planets in the past.


Pick no.7

Makai Ouji: Devils and realists



The story revolves around William, an aristocratic family's progeny with rare intellect. One day, his uncle lost his possessions after his business failed. Fearing that his family's name has been tarnished, William returns home and searches with his family's butler for anything that can be converted into cash. A search of the premises yields an underground room left by an ancestor. In the room is a magical seal, and William unintentionally summons a devil. The summoned devil tells William his name Dantalion, and reveals that William is the designator who can choose the acting ruler of the demon world.

Pick no.8

Un-Go



One of my all time favorite anime, I know this is on Crunchyroll but it's no available in my region but I own the entire series anyway

With the help of his strange assistant Inga, "defeated detective" Shinjuro Yuki solves crimes in a near future Japan still suffering from the ravages of war. Problem is, the credit always ends up going to super detective Rinroku Kaisho. Episode 0 is not as intersesting as the rest of the series but I recommend watching it first it explains a lot so you understand the story..


Pick no.9

Haikyuu!!



A chance event triggered Shouyou Hinata's love for volleyball. His club had no members, but somehow persevered and finally made it into its very first and final regular match of middle school, where it was steamrolled by Tobio Kageyama, a superstar player known as "King of the Court." Vowing revenge, Hinata applied to the Karasuno High School volleyball club... only to come face-to-face with his hated rival, Kageyama!


Pick no.10

Arpeggio of Blue Steel



By 2039, global warming had caused sea levels to rise and large amount of territory to be lost. As though in response, a mysterious group of warships clad in mist, "the Fleet of Mist," appeared in every corner of the ocean, and began attacking human ships. In spite of humanity mustering all their strength, they were utterly defeated by the Mist's overwhelming force. All of humanity's trade routes were blockaded by the Fleet of Mist, their political economy was destroyed, and the human race was steadily beaten down. Seven years later, the Fleet of Mist's submarine I-401 appears before cadet Gunzo Chihaya. The humanoid life form that pilots the sub, who should be their enemy, is instead offering her services to mankind.




This list is in no particular order, I just put them on randomly XD

I personally recommend Hell Girl if you like darker anime, and Dusk Maiden of Amnesia for a star-crossed love series.

Arakawa Under the Bridge : http://www.crunchyroll.com/arakawa-under-the-bridge
---I think this is technically a shojo manga. Regardless it's hilarious. Think Gintama meets Nozaki-kun.

Level E: http://www.crunchyroll.com/level-e
---Togashi Yoshihiro's (Hunter x Hunter, Yuyu Hakusho) take on a comedy manga. Actually quite hilarious. Kind of Gintama-ish.

Magic Kaito 1412 : http://www.crunchyroll.com/magic-kaito-1412
---This show just ended last season but very few people watched it. It gives off a very 90's anime vibe. It's about a highschool student gentleman thief / magician who steals jewels and makes fools of cops in clever ways. It's what you expect of the Detective Conan universe, except a little sillier.

Occult Academy : http://www.crunchyroll.com/occult-academy
---A comedy/horror/action anime with the theme of cliche urban legends and mysteries that takes place in 1999. It's about a highschool girl and a guy who has traveled back from the future to try and stop the world from being devastated by an alien invasion. (The anime itself is 2011)

Samurai Flamenco : http://www.crunchyroll.com/samurai-flamenco
---An anime version of Kickass more or less.

Sket Dance : http://www.crunchyroll.com/sket-dance
--- Think Gintama in a highschool environment. Shares quite a few voice actors with Gintama, was written by a former assistant of Gintama's mangaka, has had numerous crossover episodes with Gintama.

The Melody of Oblivion : http://www.crunchyroll.com/the-melody-of-oblivion
--- A sci-fi anime about a world that has been taken over by monsters. Humans are still more or less free, except the monsters require human sacrifices occasionally. The theme behind the anime is that while the monsters simply just occasionally eat humans, humans are willing to ruin each others' lives much more harshly. The anime has an interesting philosophical message and probably has one of the most unique endings for an anime that I have ever seen.

The Tower of Druaga : S1 http://www.crunchyroll.com/the-tower-of-druaga-the-aegis-of-uruk-
S2: http://www.crunchyroll.com/the-tower-of-druaga-the-sword-of-uruk-
--- It's similar to "Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls In a Dungeon?" Except that the main character has a realistic personality. The action scenes are much more detailed. There is a lot more irony to the comedy and less fanservice. I know I am coming across very cynical but A LOT of shows these days are otaku harems, even if they have an interesting premise. This is not one of those. This was not written to pander a harem to an otaku fanbase. It's more pandering an action/comedy to a Bandai video gamer fanbase.

We Without Wings : http://www.crunchyroll.com/we-without-wings-under-the-innocent-sky
--- This is one of the more interesting dating sim based animes I have seen. I can't explain why without spoiling it, but let's just say it resembles Durarara.

Good choise been meaning to check out Gatchaman Crowds at some point..

I would had Humanity had Declined a happy-ish story about the almost end of the world take shot at some tropes
Kousougigai (I think I'm spelling that right) - A story about a family living in a really weird town.

How about Lovely Complex? It's a shojo anime about a girl and a guy that are a comedy duo, but then the girl, Risa, starts to have a crush on Otani. You can watch the rest to get the rest of the plot.
