Top 10 Underrated Anime Series that one should Watch

Underrated Anime: We’ve looked at series known for their story elements, animation style, and other unique elements for this list but haven’t received the massive attention they deserve. It seems to be churning out an almost constant stream of critically acclaimed anime, more than anyone interested in the art form will have enough time to consume.

As a result, some find their way to virtually universal popularity. Naruto’s saturation of pop culture, the classic status of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood or Neon Genesis Evangelion or the currently widespread appreciation of My Hero Academia are some examples that have impressed a large fan base.

5. “Angel attacks!” (2010) (Underrated Anime)

When you die, sometimes you get a second chance. At the Angel Beats! Mundo, we meet a group of students who have all died in gruesome and disturbing ways but who have been given a new life, alone in limbo. Incredibly moving, this series shows how far people go for their loved ones, and sometimes they deserve a slight relief in the process.

4. “Yu YuHakusho” (1992 – 96) (Underrated Anime)

As in our previous post, this series is about salvation. Our hero Yusuke Urameshi is a criminal who dies to save an innocent child and revives as an undead detective. Although Yusuke, we learn a lot about what it means to be human. The series reworks many elements of the horror and occult genre and even tries its hand at Buddhist mythology. Yu Yu Hakusho was released during the Dragonball era, quickly forgotten, but is worth reviving.

Underrated Anime

3. “Toward the Terra” (1980 – 2007)

Here’s an anime that keeps disappearing from our radar. Toward the Terra is an outstanding piece of science fiction that looks at how war and pollution are destroying the earth’s resources and forcing people to colonize other planets.

Oh, and some supercomputers are brainwashing abandoned humanity. Originally shot as a film in 1980, it was expanded into a series in 2007. The series has received much praise for portraying a terrifying and not-so-distant future.

2. “Samurai Champloo” (2004 – 05)

Samurai in anime is never a bad idea. This series focuses on a group of samurai, Mugen, Jin, and Fuu, trying to become the greatest samurai in Japan. This series is unique because it mixes the traditional tropics of fantasy swordsmen with a hip hop set. Who would have thought that alternate worlds could be so radical?

Although Samurai Champloo is greatly overshadowed by similar anime like Inuyasha and Bleach, he brings a unique anime style to Western culture. Samurai Champloo, alongside a soothing plot and story, they have some A rated sword fights. Both of the main protagonists are skilled in swordplay and have given enough reasons to sit back and take notice.

Before we present our top picks, here are some honorable mentions.

A. “Heroic Age” (2007)

B. “KatekyoHitman REBORN!” (2006 – 10)

C. “Zetsuen No Tempest” (2012 – 13)

D. “Ouran High School Host Club” (2006)

E. “DuRaRaRa” (2010 – 15)

1. “Baccano! ”(2007)

Ok, this purification is a bit difficult to describe. Baccano! It follows three intertwined stories that follow different characters and span many years. At first, one might expect the large number of cards to make them underdeveloped.

Each character has a fair amount of screen time and a backstory. Cults, demons, mobs, and murders weave a story that will not be soon forgotten. The Baccano Mutiny can be considered an action-comedy, but there is blood and gore in abundance!
