Do you guys know any anime that isnt too mainstream that is good? When I first signed up on here, finding good anime was easy but I've watched so much, that now I cant find any good anime to watch. Suggestions?

Mawaru Penguindrum is a very different style of anime that generally divides opinion. If the style is to your taste you will be in for one hell of a ride.

Both of these threads might have a lot of good ideas for good but lesser known series:

"Good-but-not-Popular Crunchyroll Anime"
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-898075/need-anime-thats-not-in-the-huge-popular-charts-on-crunchyroll-but-is-still-good?pg=0

"Underrated Anime"
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-899697/what-is-one-underrated-anime-everyone-should-watch?pg=0

Otherwise, if you want specific suggestions, some info about what kinds of anime you like or don't like might be helpful.

I'm not great at determining what's mainstream and what's not, but two shows I like to recommend when folks don't give too much specific criteria are:

Gankutsuou - a retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo with mecha and spaceships and a different point of view

and

Tonari no Seki-kun - about 10 minutes per episode, but the most fun I've ever had in just 10 minutes.

BTW, I've moved this to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum. If you've got other requests for advice, information, and recommendations, it's the forum to post in!
