A lot of those were primarily forgotten because they are old and a lot of new anime fans haven't seen anything from before like 2008 lol, though some have exceptions. I have Green Legend Ran on DVD btw from like 13 years ago.

Shakugan no Shana was huge, but a lot of the fans hated the final season. Funny enough, it was the only season I really enjoyed. The first two were very heavy on romantic drama, where as the third one tried tackling the plot in a unique way which I respect.

Tenchi Muyo is pretty shit I gotta tell ya. If you can't enjoy it for the atmosphere and flavor, you won't enjoy it at all. It's got some pretty shitty writing after the first season. I liked GXP a lot though, and most people hate that one especially.

As for me, I love King of Bandit Jing. As you can see by my name and avatar. However, I wouldn't expect others to like it. As I said about Tenchi Muyo, I mainly love Jing for the flavor and the atmosphere. It's like a cross between Sword Art Online and Kino's Journey, but the plot isn't always coherent and the art is definitely cheap. What it does do well though, is it has a very strong atmosphere to it that despite it's flaws makes it really immersive, especially to me. If the writing and the production values were polished, I could see it being really popular.

Here are a couple that I like. Because they have low scores on MAL, I'm taking that as people not liking them.

Nana Maru San Batsu-Fastest Finger First;
Who would think that competing in quiz contests could be so interesting. Seen through the eyes of the newbie MC, it is ever more challenging sport.
Ore, Twintail ni Narimasu.-Gonna be the Twin-Tail;
Magical Girls in a world were the villains and the mentors are equally perverse.

Big Order: It's terrible, but it's big dumb fun. I think it was actually some Crunchyroll clip on Facebook of the psycho girl repeatedly offiing herself while trying to kill the MC that got me to give show a try. The plot won't win any awards for originality, but it knew how to ham up every fight sequence.

Punchline: A show that makes next to zero sense up until the end, but which comes together brilliantly. The absurd humor definitely helps.

Kyosogiga: A brilliant story that didn't quite come together on the storyboard, but is still a gorgeous rendition of a family coming together.

Well, I'm just now trying to build up my anime/manga "repertoire" so to speak though I have been watching anime for a little over four years now, but there is one show I like that is the practical elephant-in-the-room of the anime/manga community:
Sword Art Online.
I know a lot of people like to hate on this show as a principle, and I will be the first to admit that it certainly has its flaws. Still, even with all of it's normal shonen tropes, it's still a pretty solid series that get's you easily attached to it's characters. Also, the source material is WAY better than the anime, especially in the first season where certain events had to be added in from the Progressive series and things had to be edited because of the way everything needed to fit together for Asuna and Kirito to meet.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone mention this series aside from me, but it is super cute and also surprisingly insightful and informative in its explanations of basic artistic concepts.


I *loved* GA Geijutsuka Art Design Class! Did it feel like Hidamari Sketch to you, too (maybe it was just such a similar theme...)?

OMG Yes! Such an adorable manga. Yotsuba's constant child-like misunderstandings! And really: get yourself somebody who looks at you like Jumbo looks at Asagi. *^-^*

Another one where the manga is way better! The plot isn't always coherent in the anime because the manga is pretty much episodic. And if I'm remembering correctly, the anime only covers maybe two or three arcs? It's been a while since I watched it. Anyway the manga art is some of my favorite of any manga. Very detailed and quirky with a lot of odd little things going on in the backgrounds.

Glad to know there are others out there who appreciate it too! Definitely deserves more love than it seems to get.

GA and Hidamari Sketch definitely reminded me of each other, as they have a lot in common with their fun atmosphere, artistic focus, and willingness to do experimental things. So yes, I think I'd agree that they feel similar in a lot of ways. Though each with its own very distinctive flairs, of course.

While it's not one that I've seen no one like, or even get any real hate, I'd have to say D-Frag! just because it's my second favorite comedy focused anime (And it's honestly only second favorite due to the small number of episodes) and it just seems to fall by as alright for most. I want nothing more than to get a second season for it.

dragonball, at least in the states, is overshadowed by its inferior sequel

Its surprising how many DBZ fans here have never seen dragonball.




Watching the original Dragon Ball series in it's entirety is on my anime bucket list. I'm currently up to episode 47.

I agree with you completely. I guess hype dies down for the show or something. In my opinion, the second season is more often better than the first, since the animators could have a good grasp on what they are producing and what the fans want. (Though there are some exceptions to that rule *cough Tokyo Ghoul cough*)

Ushio to Tora - This was such a great anime. I love the art style, it's a total throwback to the 70s and 80s. The story was good and the main bad guy, Hakumen no Mono, was awesomely evil. Even though the show starts out more serialized, the show just gets better as the main plot emerges and takes over to the finale.

and all those monster-of the-week episodes wind up having an impact on the final battle. I really enjoyed it as well.

SAO is actually pretty popular. Which is why there is so much hate. Haters gonna hate, especially when series get a big fan base like Naruto and Bleach which also have a lot of haters.
