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.)

Zarina01Zarina01    Tue, 19/03/2019 - 02:06

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

BaconBacon    Sat, 06/10/2018 - 15:14

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

NiniusNuniusNiniusNunius    Sat, 03/11/2018 - 20:12

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

Zarina01Zarina01    Sun, 14/10/2018 - 21:06

Wasn't that show a huge hit in Europe?

AchampnatorAchampnator    Tue, 16/10/2018 - 12:40

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

Zarina01Zarina01    Sat, 03/11/2018 - 21:01

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

Zarina01Zarina01    Wed, 07/11/2018 - 14:27

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

Zarina01Zarina01    Thu, 06/12/2018 - 20:06

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

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

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

Zarina01Zarina01    Sat, 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)_/¯

Sailor PokeMoon2Sailor PokeMoon2    Tue, 27/11/2018 - 21:16

Or the Anime becomes underrated because it gets forgotten about as time goes on

Sailor PokeMoon2Sailor PokeMoon2    Tue, 27/11/2018 - 21:17

Another underrated but funny is an Anime called Slayers
