Good taste OP may I suggest Welcome to the NHK? Paranoia Agent is one of my favorites but NHK is by far the best IMO, Also Hajime no Ippo if you wanna watch something that gets you into a sport.

Aku no Hana a.k.a. Flowers of Evil, it's really a hit or miss from what I've read online, I personally loved it and enjoyed the animation. It's different.

>>156179269
>>156179403
I watched these and Lain around the same time. They're OK, Paranoia Agent was 2deep4u (I like Eva so not judging) and NHK sorta flipped around a lot. Not really underrated.

Personally I really enjoyed Last Exile.

I think it's good up until they reveal who the killer is, then it kind of falls apart. What should be a climax is a two second climax and then a shitty, slow come down.

I still recommend it because the animation itsself is lovely and the characters are still great even if it falls a part.

>>156179403
I loved this one but i read the manga and didn't want to watch the anime too. Shame because I've seen clips and think animation does some stuff better for it.

As for me, I don't see a lot of fans of yu yu hakusho when people mention older anime. It was my favourite as a kid when it'd air on toonami and I met one of my best friends who I'm still friends with today through us both loving the show. The only other person I know who likes it is my husband.

If you read the manga I suggest not watching the anime My experience with it was Anime then the manga then the book Ant that was the best. The anime is very well made and extremely relatable and the manga is a bit less but it's more impactful over all. Novel is just the anime but a bit darker (a bit) read it if you wanna no need to though, I had to buy them all because of my love for it.

This had a unique narrative form, great design and animation and a touching story that left you in tears at the end.
True, it had its cheesy moments, and the action parts were always less interesting than the SoL moments, but still it deserves more attention.

Quite possibly the epitome of awful early 00's CG, but actually had an entertaining enough plot, fun cast, and some surprisingly good character development throughout. First ED is also pure ear sex.

You mean underappreciated? Because I don't think any of Satoshi Kon's work is underrated, in fact, most of them are slightly overrated (I do agree they are good, some great, but or still).

Not sure if it actually got that popular at all, but Kyousou Giga is pretty entertaining. Story, soundtrack, designs and directing are very nice, but a bit of budget trouble near the end.

While I'd like to shitpost with stuff like Coppelion that I genuinely enjoyed in spite of its flaws, the show where the negative/lukewarm reaction completely baffled me was Space Dandy.

Underwatched would be a better word, if anything. These are generally shilled to no end by those who watched them. They just aren't very accessible.

Typical shows you keep on your backlog forever.

The TV series was pretty disappointing. I enjoyed it overall, but it seemed like the web episodes were building up to something much more interesting than what we ended up getting.

Th''ts a really, really serious claim. It doesn't surprise my that a magical girl show would be good or overlooked, but I won't take the idea that it's flat out the best mahouh shoujo lightly, since in my eyes that's flat out claiming its the best anime, period.

It just always seems like David Lynch is brought up when Japs discuss why the try so hard to be whacky and different. Monster gives off big Twin Peaks vibes, same thing with Paranoia Agent.
>>
>>156186162
and the game Deadly Premonition/Red Seeds Profile is just a blatant rip off of Twin Peaks.

Anything higher than 480p for NHK?
>>
>>156186302

That one was way to obvious. Similarly, Silent Hill is Twin Peaks meets spooky jap horror. Also the Persona series borrows blatantly from it as well. I guess it was really popular over there.

Here's the difference between dub and sub:
One of my favorite scenes in the entire series is the bit in the first episode where he's sitting around in his apartment when Misaki's supposed to be waiting for him in the park. In the Japanese version, it's a very somber scene where he can't bring himself to go, until finally managing to push himself into it by telling himself that she's probably already left.

In the dub, Sato's mumbling to himself was replaced with a loud neurotic rambling that was probably meant to be funny. It ruins the entire tone of the scene. The dub does this with most of his dialog.
