I'm on my Christmas break and have taken upon myself to watch all of the shows that I've been meaning to watch throughout the year, and somehow I managed to get through my list already with still a couple of weeks to spare so I've been pretty bored recently. To put it simply, I need entertainment! I've been looking for some shounen shows but it feels like I've watched just about everything at this point, but I know that can't be true. So...



What are some hidden gem Shounen shows that you would recommend?



At this point, I'm pretty much open to anything, but I'm more prone to watch shows that are action-packed and have a more modern feel in terms of visuals, so if any of you know any shows that fit in that category, I'd love to hear about them!

I've moved this over to Advice, Info, Recommendations.

Although it doesn't have a "more modern feel in terms of visuals" (this anime is 2015-2016, but deliberately uses a more "old-school" look; the manga it's based on is from 1990-1996), I recommend Ushio and Tora

It might help if you give at least a partial list of what you've seen in the genre. Both to give a good sense of what you particularly like, and so we are less likely to recommend what you've already seen.

InuYasha was once a well known anime from the early 2000s, but now many newer anime fans have not ever even heard of it so now it may be considered a hidden gem

Mushibugyo
Gatchaman Crowds (prolly not considered shounen, but excellent)
Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans
Mob Psycho 100 (you need to watch this)
Nobunaga no Shinobi
Sabagebu! (don't worry, it's not that kind of shoujo show)
Nobunagun

I'm looking for one with a vague love story. A bit like FMA Brotherhood.

World Trigger is pretty good... I'm only reading the manga though.

Obviously what's hidden and what's not is subjective. E.g A lot of people consider HxH a hidden gem. With that in mind.

Blue Exorcist

Kekai Sensen

Soul Eater

Psyren (manga)

Yu Yu Hakusho

Hajime no Ippo

Eyeshield 21

Baby Steps

Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple
