L.C. Perry | 69 comments I'll start first! :)

Will Robinson Jr. | 66 comments World Trigger, Hunter X Hunter, Shaman King, Flame of Recca

Valerie Jaye (valeriejaye) | 48 comments Zankyou no Terror, Death Parade, Kiznaiver, Ushio to Tora (TV)


message 4: by m (new)

m (graysweats) I agree with Zankyou no Terror, that show really deserves it. I also think Beelzebub, they ended up diverging from the manga near the end, but the story itself was carried out rather well.

Halima (hallythemartian) | 10 comments Aoi Bungaku series. It's the most original thing I've ever seen and I prefer you watch it with no previous idea aboit it.

Zankyou No Terror as well!

I'd never heard of Aoi Bungaku before. Seems interesting! Totally adding it to my list right now.

Ericka | 4 comments I would second Karneval, if only so we could get a second season. It felt like it ended waaaay too early. That and Pumpkin Scissors.

Another anime I like that I think needs more love is Key the Metal Idol. It's an older anime and aimed at an older audience (violence, nudity, not for lil' kids), and it was highly experimental, but it was really good. I think Crackle has it available for streaming - totally worth it. The dub's even pretty good, which is rare for a 90's-era anime.

Kimi ni Todoke is so cute! Flame of Recca is one of my older faves.

Idk how popular Shirobako is in the West but oh man, what an awesome anime.

Loved Kimi ni Todoke. Great romantic series. Felt the second season was a bit over kill. The two main characters should have gotten together a little faster. I reccommend Lovely Complex, Toradora and Say I love You for fans of Kimi ni Todoke.


Cate (The Professional Fangirl) (chaostheory08) | 98 comments I saw the Kimi Ni Todoke live action and that was good too.

Maya (maya33) | 7 comments Tokyo Ghoul! I'm amazed it's not more popular since it's one of my favourites :)


message 19: by Crystal (new)

I don't think Your Name is underrated or unpopular, on the contrary. It was one of the highest grossing anime movies of all time or something of the like.


Cate (The Professional Fangirl) (chaostheory08) | 98 comments Sabrina wrote: "Your lie in April!!! It's pure art! Also Your Name!"

Your Lie In April and Your Name are plenty PLENTY popular.

Not as much as was when the Original came out or Stand Alone Complex . And it's only has high popularity in certain place. It's gotten some renew popularity because the live movie came out.

I don't know. The live action movie came out because the original film is so popular. It's a classic.

Lauren Evatt (peerlessscarred) | 20 comments Not sure how popular it is but I really enjoyed Blood Lad. It is such a fun story :)


Cate (The Professional Fangirl) (chaostheory08) | 98 comments Daphné wrote: "Soul Eater!"

This never loses its place in the "shows anime newbies should watch" lists.

Not really sure how popular Kids on the Slope is really. It's one of my favorites and I always recommend it.

Ahh! I just saw Rightstuf had the entire manga on sale. It's out of stock now but they are good about shipping when they can. :)
