I want a amazing anime.. a masterpiece. Something that's rare and obscure. Something that most likely only you know about. But it's really good... so good that you can say it deserves to be in the top 50 anime.

Kaiji. I wouldn't say it's really rare but I hardly see people talk about it.

Hyouge Mono (definitely)
Shan Shui Qing (beautiful)
Genji Monogatari (1987)
Tales of the Street Corner
House of Small Cubes
Pale Cocoon
Aoi Bungaku
Magnetic Rose
Night on the Galactic Railroad
Rain Town
Angel's Egg
House of Five Leaves (LOVED it)
The Diary of Tortov Roddle
Genius Party
El Hombre Sin Sombra

Shinsekai Yori. It's pretty obscure but after the first few episodes when you start to understand the setting, it just gets full on and awesome

Obviously nothing ever deserves to go into the top 50, so I'll ignore that aspect. Have fun.

Mononoke

I dont know if Mushishi is famous or not but it certainly deserves to be on a top 50 list
Also +1 on night on the galactic railroad, it leaves you thinking about its surreal surrounding.
I've been here way too long...

Watch Mononoke. It's not really that obscure, but I doubt most people have seen it.

Kaiji
Rainbow

Although the ratings for these two are pretty good, I'm not sure why they haven't been watched much. I don't know if I've seen a better part of an anime than the first half of Rainbow.

Shinsekai Yori -ESPECIALLY-

You really will miss a masterpiece if you drop it after watching a little scene from one episode. At least they didn't just throw it in there for no reason. This show easily builds the best world out of any anime and the story is incredible. It probably would be in the top 50 if some people didn't give a low score for that one episode.

It's interesting that it sold bad and was fairly unwatched when it came out, but has gotten a lot more popular in the past year.

Wolf's Rain, Zorro and Angel Cop are all must watches. Plus earlier Speed Racers!

This is a really good obscure anime list that goes into detail about what makes the anime so great (and maybe why they're obscure in the first place): https://digitalfox.media/anime-dragon/5-underappreciated-and-obscure-anime/

The moomins, after episode 52 the english sub stops and if you want to understand what's happening you need to know japanese or french (that dub is tsill out there), now that's rare.
