It's kind of tough to call a hidden gem this season simply because almost everything feels like a hidden gem. Very few shows this season are being talked about compared to previous seasons, and the split of shows between so many different streaming services isn't helping anything. Is Zero, as an example, really a hidden gem or just not being talked about on CR because it's not available on CR?

Anyway, Kado, Sakura Quest and Grimoire of Zero are probably my tops for the season. All do seem to be getting some buzz but not really a lot considering how good they are. Frame Arms Girl is also pretty good if you give it a little time and get beyond where it feels like a commercial. World Fool News is great if you're looking for a comedy. It's pure hilarious.

Natsume Yuujinchou Roku! It's my favorite of the season, and the main anime I was really looking forward to in the spring.

As far as gems that aren't getting alot of hype: The Eccentric Family 2 and The World YAMIZUKAN. Both have different adaptations of traditional folktale storytelling into their plots. Yamizukan in particular is janky and low budget, but really cool how they adopt Japanese style horror into international settings.

Eccentric Family 2 because nobody's watching it, and nobody except for one other person is even mentioning it in this thread. Other than that maybe Sakura Quest.

I still need to catch up on Kado and Quan Zhi Gao Shou.

P.S. Grimoire of Zero is not a hidden gem, because it is neither hidden, nor a gem.
