Some of these animes aren't underrated by any means as they're agreed on to be some of the best made within the community, such as "Monster" and "Berserk" (the old one.)

Berserk is debatable but Monster is most definitely underrated because even though it's been well received, gotten tons of praise and won a bunch of awards, how many people have actually seen it or heard of it?.... not a lot

Fair enough, I need to pickup monster at some point.

Monster is really good. I highly recommend it if you're into thriller genre.

It appeared a few times on French TV from the mid-80's to the 2000's. Nowhere near the popularity of Grendizer and suchlike though.

And where is the French Intro cause I don't found one or was it aired with one of the existing Intros?

Speaking of underrated animes, what about Kazemakase Tsukikage Ran? One of the funniest I've ever watched. There was an English version, apparently, but it was never aired in Europe.

I fansubbed it a long time ago. I must still have the French translation somewhere on my HD Regular smile

Funny, I would rather consider Berserk vastly overrated. Except for a couple of Hirazawa's nice scores, I found it terribly boring, full of blatant plot holes and poorly drawn.

Paranoia Agent is quite famous among conoisseurs. Another of Satoshi Kon's too rare masterpieces. A beautifully crazy soundtrack by Susumu Hirazawa too.

Noir was also a big hit among French fansub community. I suppose the OST had something to do with its popularity, or maybe it was the insane body count, or just Mireille's cold blooded killer's good looks? The vision of France is all over the place though.

Lol what you just said about Berserk is exactly how I feel about all of Hayao Miyazaki's movies; the exception being that I think his movies are beautifully animated

Also, I'm doing this list from a non-anime fan point of view (even though I myself am an anime fan) So this is mostly going to contain entries from animes that people who don't watch anime might not have heard of. So some obvious examples that wouldn't be on this list would be Sailor Moon, Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, Pokemon, Digimon, Death Note and Attack on Titan because everyone even non-anime fans have heard of those animes

My anime fandom period was rather around 2000, but I saw quite a few back then. I still have a couple dozen series on my HD.
Among those not already in your collection, a few I rather liked:

Mahoutsukai ni taisetsu na koto (can be quite poetic at times)
Yokohama kaidashi kikou (refreshing)
Seikai no senki (one of the best space operas in the genre)
Azumanga daioh (so funny and cute!)
Witch hunter Robin (for some reason I like the gloomy mood)
Irresponsible captain Tylor (cheeky and antimilitaristic, very funny if a bit childish at times)

Oh, and if you think the 90's animation was bad wait until you see the 2016 adaptation *shudders*

NiniusNuniusNiniusNunius    Sa, 03/11/2018 - 20:11

Take me to the person who watches anime and has never heard of Steins;Gate. LOL

Zarina01Zarina01    Sa, 03/11/2018 - 21:03

Well some people say it's underrated and then there are others that say it's overrated, so I don't know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
