Ok, the truth is I'm looking for some more anime to watch and don't want to filter through shows to find something interesting. Are there any shows out there that you feel are Underrated or don't get enough attention? My secondary Goal is to give those shows the attention it deserves and for others to enjoy anime that should be enjoyed.

I've moved this to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.


As to your second goal, there's already a thread in the Anime forum for that:

Baccano! Oh my gosh, I wish this anime got more love. If you've watched 91 Days, then you might get a similar vibe from Baccano since it's set during the same time period. In my opinion, Baccano is waaay more enjoyable then 91 Days. It has more likable characters, it's funnier, and the plot is more engaging. Another underrated show would be Wolf's Rain..great story, nice animation, and beautiful soundtrack by Yoko Kanno. I would recommend watching the dub of Baccano because it's amazing and fits so well considering it's set in 1930s America. For Wolf's Rain, I would say the sub is better than the dub, but the dub isn't without its merits.

The Unlimited: Hyobu Kyosuke - I guess I never hear anyone talk about it and it's absolutely one of my favs. It's extremely good plot-wise, excellent characters, action, pretty much has everything - watchable here on CR by the way.

It's a spinoff series (sort of)(I say sort of because it still follows the plotline of the original series) that revolves around the antagonist turned anti-hero of the Zettai Karen Children series. That series is fun to watch too, though it's nowhere near as action packed, if you like The Unlimited you may want to watch Zettai Karen for some more background. Absolutely one of my favorite ever, and not very many people have even heard of it or ZKC. Love the stuff.

Seriously, watch it! It's well worth your time and it does an outstanding job in every category.

Doesn't help that's it's only been streamed on TAN (under the name "Psychic Squad"): http://www.theanimenetwork.com/Watch-Anime/Psychic-Squad.

Kurenai, Brain's Base follow-up to Baccano! A great take on Leon the Professional. Great performances from the two main leads (Miyuki Sawashiro and Aoi Yuki) who would go on to voice recognizable and beloved characters.

Mushibugyo, fun anime that gives off a Inuyasha/Rin-ne feel except fighting bugs in feudal japan.

Gatchaman Crowds, nice thinking mans anime that subverts tropes and is pretty cool once you get past the annoying voice of the MC. haven't seen insight yet so can't comment on the newest stuff.

Kamigami no Asobi - smarter than your average harem show, and legitimately funny... and legitimately emotional at times, when you don't except it.

O-Edo Rocket
is also a legitimately funny comedy with tearjerker parts that sneak up on you. It's about fireworks and aliens, in the Edo period. There's a ninja locksmith.

K is popular in Japan (I think) but not as much here. Season 1 is on Hulu and Netflix, and season 2 is on Hulu, but they took down the movie that comes in between so... don't watch season 2 until you see that first. Gorgeously animated battles between superpowered teams in Tokyo, surprising amount of plot and character depth, intriguing mystery, moderate fanservice (male and female). This is my second favorite show ever, and my first is Code Geass. I think I'd describe it as a mix between Code Geass and Durarara!!, sort of. And if you like the voice actors in Geass and DRRR!! - English and Japanese - most of them are in K, too.

I forgot that it was called "Psychic Squad". I guess it's a relevant title, but it does sound pretty lame. I guess it never had the best name out there anyway.

i'm not sure, but i'd reco Osomatsu-san

most people turn off bc of the art/characters (the muppets), but rly you should try it bc of the comedies & the voice actors just so amazing. Also, despite being sextuplet, it's so easy to tell them apart mostly bc of their personality so contrast to each others.
