What are some of your favourite underrated, or not so well known anime movies? (It also gives me a chance to check them out!)

I'm not sure how well known it is, or if you've seen it, but Tekkonkinkreet is really good. I hadn't heard of it until my local theatre randomly played it for one showing

many of my favorites aren't necessarily not well known but they are kinda old so many people may not have heard of them.

Sin
Spriggan
Read or Die
Demon City Shinjuku

Im gonna put Ninja Scroll here even though I doubt many people haven't heard of it. In my opinion its one the 3 action anime movies that started the anime boom in the US. (Akira, Ghost in the Shell) If you haven't then you owe it to yourself to watch it. For its genre it's one of the best anime movies.

Black Magic M-66. To get extra fun out of it, watch the movie, then go play Xenosaga and notice all the references.

I hope you appreciate that Discotek went to all that trouble to rescue "Dragon Half"'s license from the 90's so that CR could stream it.

In the early birth-of-US-anime 90's, you were no true anime fan unless you could speak well of both Dragon Half and the dubbed version of Shinesman:

Does Summer wars count as underrated? Maybe Colourful and Tokyo Godfathers

If Ninja Scroll counts, then that has to be my favorite for sure. Just an absolutely superb action movie.



Also, I'd say Dead Leaves, since that doesn't tend to get brought up a whole bunch. A supremely weird, manic film that just has you saying "What the fuck?" the entire time, and I mean that in the best way possible.
