This is the #316 most popular show on MAL and is ranked#4018, this show was awful and was somewhat popular due to it only airing just last year.


No.

And MAL ranks are garbage...

Hidden Gems:

Kaiba: A show where you can buy/sell memories and transfer bodies. It examines what is love and what is life.

Ojisan no Lamp (Grandfather's Lamp): A 23 minute movie about a man who sells lamps and electricity comes to his village and he must decide whether to fight it or stop selling lamps to still be able to support his family.

Furiko: A romantic short.

La Maison en Petits Cubes: A twelve minute short story of a old man reflecting on his life.

Time of Eve: A good look into what it means to be human and what if robots looked like human and acted like them and how should they then be treated. (Everything Chobits should have been and don't get me started in how bad Plastic Memories is)

Cat Soup: One of the best films that is black and white and about a boy's love for his sister.

Angel's Egg: A movie about the religion and questions the purpose of it.

If you are interested in watching only certain episodes then I would also recommend Bartender 1,7,8 and 9 as this series is episodic and really should have only been those four episodes instead of eleven. The other episodes are not bad; they just are not of the same quality that those mentioned are.

I'm a HUGE Please Teacher! fan.

Also, I really like both the Mahoraba and Karin (Chibi Vampire) manga; are the anime worth watching?

I loved both series but I actually never read the manga on those two. All I can say is both had me roflmao at times and both had lots of heart.

Tactics, Descendents of Darkness maybe if you're into strong male characters and demons. If you like yaoi then Loveless is cool. But all-time favorite is Revolutionary Girl Utena. Very beautiful artwork and it's got a deep message to it. If you like COMEDY then Panty and Stocking and Super Milk Chan are great. Check 'em all out!
