Anime’s people really enjoy but never talk about. Not like cowboy beep bop or what ever it was called somthing like sirus yeager, or even ergo proxy. Shows that we’re good or extremely underrated

Hai to Genshou no Grimgar got slept on big time. Everything about it is good. The soundtrack is great. The art has an amazing watercolor and handcraft feel to it. The characters are very realistic and memorable. The steady character progression just makes it much more interesting to see when they face an increasing level of danger. Thus, The fights happening inside of the anime are packed with physical, situational, and emotional weight despite the cast having to face enemies at lower levels. I couldn't see a reason people slept on this anime.

Nana, it's a very popular shojo, maybe the most popular one
but comparing it to most anime, it's rather underrated (most 2000s Madhouse animes are underrated, kind of)
Initial D, despite the whole eurobeat memes and stuff, as an anime it's also pretty slept on, kind of reasonable, as some people may not like cars or understand certain terms

I'd say Casshern Sins, but that's got like 130K+ members, so not particularly slept on. I'll say Argento Soma as my actual choice.

yea I agree dude tanaka-kun is so overlooked, despite being one of the most chill, enjoyable SOLs I've seen.

I also feel the Working!! series doesn't get enough love.

Not sure about Cowboy bebop the anime is so popular and well acclaim. There are lots of people who have watched Cowboy bebop but they aren't anime fan.
Now people don't talk much about old stuff because everyone is busy with seasonal shits including me.

Tamayura, while easily being able to contend with and surpass the current kings SoL/iyashikei (e.g. Non Non Biyori, Yuru Camp, etc), for some reason is effectively forgotten.

If by slept on you mean pretty good shows that don't have a large amount of popularity/membership:

Majestic Prince - fully recommend if you like Mecha series

Sakurada Reset - has a thriller/mystery type plot but with the atmosphere of a slice-of-life series. Really incredible

Dimension W - if you liked Darker than Black

Tiger & Bunny - if MHA was less mainstream

Sarazanmai - weird supernatural SoL show

Ano Natsu de Matteru (Waiting in the Summer) - if you liked Anohana and Kokoro Connect

Nanbaka - comedy

Selector Infected WIXOSS - if you like Madoka Magica-type shows

Aoharu x Kikanjuu - sports series about airsoft

Karneval - mystery/supernatural that vaguely reminds me of Black Butler (specifically Book of Circus)

^Yes.

Also:

Erin - looks like a kid's show but is pretty hardcore at times.

12 Kingdoms - the best character development I've ever seen.

Little Busters - almost as good as Clannad but nowhere near as popular.

Cerulean Sand - the most underappreciated anime I've seen. Only 6100 members.

IDC what anybody says the 1986 Dragon Ball is slept on compared to Z. So tired of hearing "just skip the original and start with Z"

If you want the really big guns... I don't have the patience to take out hundreds of hidden gems for anime.

Throw Kenichi in here.

I also +1 this, that's a very slept on anime.

I would also add Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge to the list.

I also +1 that +1. Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge was so slept on.
Btw I would also add Ani ni Tsukeru Kusuri wa Nai! on that list as well.


Super underrated. One of my favorite slice of life anime of all time

3-Gatsu No Lion.

Not a lot of people talk about this show anymore.

It was almost undisputably hailed top 5 best anime series of the 2010s. But it is also definitely not everyones's cup of tea sadly. I mean, personally, I think I kept it on hold or dropped at episode 3.
