Know an unpopular title that isn't on our list? Feel like a title belongs? Title rejected once but now meets club guidelines... request titles, make claims for admission, and help keep our club relations list and Unpopular Anime Index up to date here.

Definition
We view unpopular anime as anime that is overlooked and underated. Anime that we enjoyed feel that others will enjoy as well if they only gave it a try. Anime that is not popular among the masses but enjoyed by a small fandom. Anime that has a larger popularity in Japan but the rest of the world turns a blind eye to. Anime that stands as an individual among its genre that little to no one seems to know. It is our kind of anime.

To see our club Guidelines Click Here

With this, I recommend that Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora, Shion no Ou, Sora no Method and Yama no Susume be kept.

Hidamari Sketch, Yuki Yuna is a Hero, Time of Eve, and Maria Holic should be kept, and I'm fine with everyone else's recommendations.

I also recommend keeping the Lyrical Nanoha movies and adding seasons one, two, and three of the TV series. Nanoha's one of my favorite franchises but every installment has a pretty minimal fan presence on MAL. The jury's still out on whether Vivid will end up being good enough to join the rest of them someday.

Some of them were even added to the club but have now been removed. A lot of the anime on there were requested by me to test out how weak the definition of "unpopular anime" was, which is one of the reasons why the club is being revamped.

Oh, I see, that means the ones I suggested to aren't being added too. I guess I have to read back on the discussions where you guys debated on what the an "unpopular anime" is. I sorta missed out when you guys had the discussion.

It wasn't really one discussion. I believe it's still ongoing. My first comment on this club was two months ago and I think it was the first to criticise how broad the definition is, so it's been going on for a while. Reading back on the discussion so far wouldn't be a bad idea.

I would like to suggest Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta to be added to the list.

Idk about Yozakura Quartet but they seem to be different. I think the other Hana no Uta one is a remastered version or something like that. But if you want to add this one as well its up to you.

Yozakura Quartet first was an adaptation that has original plot midway the story.

Hana no Uta on the other hand is an adaptation closer to the manga with more ecchi on it. Additionally, it connect most Yozakura Quartet anime to each other compare to the first adaptation.

Please delete this post if this goes against the thread rules. Thanks.

Taiho Shichau zo (1996)
Heck, really any of the "You're Under Arrest" series and movies. All are rated over 7.00, membership is 10K or lower.

Also any (and all) of the "Ah! My Goddess" titles. Again, all over 7.00 and membership is highest at 80K (first full series).
What if the Hokey Pokey is what it is all about?

That list is from about 6 weeks ago. We went through a big redesign here and fell behind on anime recommendation additions. We are now going through the current recommendations and reaching a decision. It will be announced soon.

Girls und Panzer previously in the list. Or at least it was in the relation when I joined the club.

For now, I recommend Hanamaru Youchien.

EDIT: Late notice that it is already in the relation. Sorry.

I'd like to add Ro-Kyu-Bu! and Show By Rock!!. Both fit the club restrictions.

I think Ro-Kyu-Bu is exactly what you would expect from a seinen basketball anime as opposed to a shounen one. It had cute characters and a nice story, although some of the ecchi scenes did feel a bit forced.

Show By Rock just finished airing today. Unlike most anime adaptions of mobile games it was actually pretty good. The CGI wasn't the best, but it wasn't too frequent and it at least was a good way to make the action scenes visually different from the rest of the show. It had a short runtime and a large cast, but they do manage to develop the characters fairly well. Considering what it was adapted from I think they did a good job. It even has a dub, somehow.

Punch Line and Ginga e Kickoff!! for additional suggestion.

Punch Line is worth it if you can not drop it on the first 4 episode. Ep5 is the real starting point for its story.

Ginga e Kickoff is one of those underrated hidden gems in sport genre that tackles realism without fail. It is also a story about development of a team as a whole instead of focusing to limited characters.
