You should be ashamed of watching all that mainstream crap, you conformist.

Because obviously only terrible shows ever enter the mainstream.

Seriously, don't be ashamed to admit you like something. Never let people tell you that you can't enjoy an anime. Don't spend much time in CR hate threads because those things are toxic.

Nothing with mainstream.


On the other hand, there might be some shows I do recommend.

Karas and Casshern Sins, in particular.

Yeah, they're pretty mainstream. I enjoy Naruto and AoT myself. It's not a bad thing at all.

People HATE most of those animes because they're mainstream, now that doesn't make any sense at all.

Here's some not-so-mainstream anime to help you:
Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni
Ghost in the Shell (This one is technically "mainstream", but it's not as popular today as it was)
Baccano!
FLCL
Serial Experiments Lain
Toradora
Ergo Proxy

Hope this helps.

Also, there's nothing wrong with only watching mainstream anime, but if you do, you'll miss out on hidden gems like Higurashi, Lain, and Baccano!

You should stop being mainstream then. As the guy above me said, you'll miss out on some really good stuff.

Watch the Bakemonogatari series. It will show you a new side of anime.

You should watch what you enjoy. I love all those animes, and becoming increasingly obsessed with 'is it wrong to try and pick up girls in a dungeon'. (which i am convinced will be considered mainstream once it gets more episodes)

I like that style of anime thats all

If I were you I'd watch JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. One of the best anime there is.

Yes I do watch anime recommended by friends. I watched Attack on Titan and started Fairy Tail cuz of them...

I saw Naruto on Cartoon Network? Really liked it, they had a 100 episode marathon at the time
I saw Death Note because my cousin said I'd really enjoy it. Oh boy, I did.

Every other anime I might've watched: simply because they were popular(on crunchyroll). go figure

Oh but, I've also been recommended Highschool of the Dead. It's somewhat mainstream, somewhat a fad(everything zombies back then lol...)

But then again, a lot of mainstream things at a time fall out of favor eventually


Get a better class of friends!

JUST KIDDING *Ducks as stuff is thrown at me*

Now for the real steps:

1) Go to animenewsnetwork.com

2) Search on a show you like

3) Find the "find similar anime based on genres & themes" link under that show and click. It will list other shows that are similar and you will find some non-mainstream titles that you may want to check out
