Definitely Tiger & Bunny. I guess I could also go with Kengan Ashura. It is done in CG but it is good and they used actual martial artists mocapped for it. But the manga is better.

My go to answer for this is always Requiem from the Darkness. Its popularity is below 3000, but I loved it. It's a weird, trippy horror anthology story. Interesting characters, really unique look. I loved that show.

I'd also say Futakoi Alternative - This shows popularity is also below 3000. It's again a weird, drama, comedy that also has action. Good art style, episodic style episodes. Just a fun show that seems not well known.

Kaze no Shoujo Emily. I'm surprised it's not more popular. I think a certain crowd would be really into it. It was way better than Anne of Green Gables to me anyways.

So I did watch it, though I couldn't understand what was so good about it. Of course, the CGI was amazing and beautiful, but the story and characters are meh to me. But I may just not understand, can you tell me?

Not really a hidden gem but Tsuki ga Kirei is an amazing romance anime.

Boogiepop Phantom, but it really isn't for everyone, hence why it became pretty well hidden.

Well, for me it was: a great directing, fantastic OST, Phos and one of the greatest character development that we have in anime, and all the mysteries about that world.

Kono Oto Tomare I love it so much. It’s heavily underrated I really don’t know why people skipped it well it’s music it’s not for everyone so that explains much.


Kono oto tomare is the first anime that made me read the manga after watching the anime, I don't think its underrated tho

Very few people have watched it maybe because of the art style or the crazy pace of the voice actors(won't get enough time to read the subs), but its worth it.



I've heard about the fast pace talking. Is it like Saiki K speed?
for me, i think it was faster than Saiki but only the main character does that when he talk to himself. Other characters talk normally,Not like in saiki

Golden Kamuy, Assassin's Pride, Mysteria Friends, Michiko & Hatchin, Cross Ange, and The Garden of Sinners are some that come to mind. Someone else mentioned Eromanga Sensei, and I second that too.
Don't let anyone call you average. That's just mean.

An anime about making a dictionary is a hard sell for a lot of people. I found it neat tho.

It is hard, for sure. But going into it blindly has been one of the most pleasantly surprising series I've seen. Never thought an anime about making a dictionary would bring me to tears.

Maison Ikkoku. It can be called as hidden, because it was aired 30+ years ago, and seems like no one will bat an eye on it these days.

Both the anime and the manga are top, they are beautiful, the art is beautiful, and the story is well writter. The only complaints is probably slow pacing?

I love that you decided to mention Gleipnir! I loved that anime and I think it deserves so much more praise!

I hope that the anime gets a 2nd season!

I would recommend Air Gear, Stars Align, The Saga of Tanya the Evil and Joker Game!

Golden Kamuy has one of the most unique plots that I have ever seen in an anime!

Tsuki ga kirei, you guys really need to try it. It's a pretty good story about adolescent romance

So I did watch it, though I couldn't understand what was so good about it. Of course, the CGI was amazing and beautiful, but the story and characters are meh to me. But I may just not understand, can you tell me?

Well, for me it was: a great directing, fantastic OST, Phos and one of the greatest character development that we have in anime, and all the mysteries about that world.


Well the thing that I thought with Phos is that she just suddenly became over powered and just so suddenly had a character change. Idk, it's just that there was no connection with me. Then again, it's all about preference.

Yep, gotta agree with you.
But suddenly had a change of character? Have we really watched the same show?
Every episode something would happen to Phos or someone around them, until something really fucked up happened and they have to change their personality.
Add all those problems + Phos losing 2/3 of their body (along with memories) and we had a transformation, it wasn't out of nowhere.
But sure, people have different taste and preferences.
Have a great day, my friend!

Little Busters for sure! It seems to be in the shadow of Clannad, but in my opinion, Little Busters is just as good as Clannad.

While Clannad's main theme is family, Little Busters' main theme is friendship. Sure, that may sound a little bit cheesy with the whole "power of friendship" thing, but it's not like that.

Clannad was good, but Little Busters was able to portray some scenes and moments a bit better (won't get into specific scenes) than Clannad did.

Magical Girl Raising Project. It is the the best of the "Madoka clones", though I don't consider it a Madoka clone (even though the main character looks identical to Madoka). Madoka is psychological and philosophical, MGRP is a battle royale. It's thrilling, fast paced, has a nice aesthetic, memorable characters and good kills.
Shoot first, think never.
