    Top 20 Underrated Anime

    Title says it all, list your favorite underrated anime, anime you believed deserved more spotlight than they got. You don't have to list 20.

    Here's mine:

    1. Needless
    2. Chaos;Head
    3. Chrome Shelled Regios
    4. Kids on the Slope
    5. Special A
    6. No. 6
    7. Serial Experiments Lain
    8. Hero Tales
    9. B Gata H Kei
    10. Ga Rei Zero
    11. Hell Girl (Surprisingly underrated it seems)
    12. Legend of the Legendary Heroes
    13. Dream Eater Merry
    14. The World God Only Knows
    15. Amagami SS
    16. Chobits
    17. C
    18. MM!
    19. Kampfer
    20. Fractale

    I feel many anime get overlooked because of either the complexity of the plots or because of quick assumptions- of course there are many more reasons that people overlook good series. Any people on this forum looking for anime to watch should skim through the titles on this list.

    Re: Top 20 Underrated Anime

    You've seen every single one of those? Your eyesight must be horrible...
    Anyway, are any of those action-packed and thick with plot?

    Legend of the Legendary Heroes sounds... redundant.

    Probably Kokoro Connect could be an anime that is underrated as well.

    Actually have good eyesight, I've just been watching anime for a long time.

    And yes, some of them are action packed type series. Legend of the Legendary Heroes, Ga Rei Zero, and Needless are action but they also have a plot behind the action, Chrome Shelled Regios is action as well. I'd suggest watching it if you're looking for action.

    I don't think Kokoro Connect has had enough time to be labeled as "underrated", for the sole reason that it was released recently and had quite a significant amount of fans for something fresh (Not as many as Attack on Titan and SAO received upon their releases, but regardless).

    Plus, Kokoro Connect has been licensed by Anime Network, which will probably give it more of a name.

    I tried, it just didn't work for me.

    ForneverWorld seems to be publicizing it fairly well.

    I've been reading it and its pretty good. The only things I dislike about it is that I think its moving way too fast, and I'm not entirely happy with the main character. I think he would work better as a side character. Not asking that he should fit the typical Goku/Naruto/Luffy mold, but a little more emotion/character would be nice.

    Cowboy Bepop - Certainly one of the best action comedy and very enjoyable

    Others: Monster, FATE/ZERO, Kaze no Stigma

    Re: Top 20 Underrated Anime

    I've only seen Ga Rei Zero from that list and it was really good. Plan on watching these
    Chaos;Head
    Serial Experiments Lain
    Hell Girl

    Only ones I could add are probably Ergo Proxy, Fate/Zero, and Witchblade.

    Witchblade is overlooked because of the fanservice, but it really is good.

    I don't think I would consider Bebop overrated, since its already pretty highly rated.

    Re: Top 20 Underrated Anime

    Chrome Shelled Regios


    Probably the anime with the most unresolved ending ever. Seriously, nothing was accomplished

    Atleast they beat the contaminoid, but some things were unresolved. Probably went further in the manga.

    Yeah, I wanted to know more about the Fallen Ones. The problem is probably that the ratings weren't high enough to make more than 24 episodes. Unfortunate because I enjoyed the series. I think the manga does go further than the anime does, but I'm not sure. (Not much of a manga reader)

    Really, really really hated Chaos;Head. It was slow to start up and the story was lackluster. Hated the main character. Tough to even get into.

    I think everything in the show just built up on each other to lead to the main plot.

    Black Lagoon, Blue Sub No. 6, Outlaw Star, Beck, and a few others I can't think of right now seem to have either been forgotten or disregarded.
