So I have browsed CR library a few times and nothing really jumps out as interesting but I know there are many hidden gems that synopsis doesnt really capture. I will provide my MAL list to keep from making a huge "What I have seen" any suggestions?

Yeah dude, not going through your whole completed list. That's a chore.

But I see Erased is one your "Plan to watch"

That's a damn good show.

you could try " ERIN " or " magical girl raising project ". they both pretty good IMO.

https://myanimelist.net/anime/33003/Mahou_Shoujo_Ikusei_Keikaku - magical girl raising project.

https://myanimelist.net/anime/5420/Kemono_no_Souja_Erin - ERIN.

Since it's not on your MAL list you have to watch Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, it's a must watch. It's not a hidden gem, but if you haven't seen it then you need to, as well as Hunter x Hunter and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

Also, even though it's not on crunchyroll, Rage of Bahamut Genesis is another great option, and it's a really underrated show. The second season is airing right now so it's a great moment to start watching it.

Dusk Maiden of Amnesia: A love story between a boy and a ghost: romance, comedy, drama, mystery.

Kimi ni Todoke: Cute, funny, school-aged romance -- it's "Say, I Love You" but slower paced and funnier.

Gargantia of the Verderous Planet: A bit of mech combat, but it's mostly a "fish out of water" sci-fi story/romance. You seemed to like Kaze no Stigma and Eureka Seven--you'll probably like this one.

Hanasaku Iroha: Slice of life, coming of age story. A nice little romance buried in there, but it's mostly about a girl maturing and coming to terms with her flighty mom and her strict grandma.

Kotoura-San: Similar in many ways to Kokoro Connect, about the downsides to psychic abilities--the drama is just as good, although the attempts at comedy largely fall flat.

Maria the Virgin Witch: Awful title, but good anime--powerful, pacifist, witch interferes in human wars, upsetting both the humans and the gods.

Serial Experiments Lain - existential, though provoking, no action, computers / hacker

Paprika - Might as well call Inception a live action remake of this.

Escaflowne - forgotten gem that people seem to gloss over. Distant world, love story, mechs.

Trigun - another forgotten gem. Vagabond with a Goku type attitude (all jokes until it's time to fuck shit up) Guns, western style.

Texhnolyze - futuristic, action, dark, mech body parts

The highlight Anime seem to get really negative reviews in the Anime community. That said they must be good because I feel the anime community hated SAO as well as Shin sekai yori. The former being IMO good entertainment, and the ladder being IMO darn near masterpiece. Thanks for your time and consideration!

Green I have watched but just couldn't get through just not for me this present time. Red I have finished. Kill la Kill wasn't really my cup of tea but I was so intrigued by the girl with the Katana(who's name eludes me atm). Will add a few of these to the to watch list. I appreciate your advice!
