Underappreciated Anime’s?!

Published February 19, 2016 by Shay Taree

I got the idea for this post by talking to one of my friends on kik. I’m sure that there are a lot of anime’s that are over appreciated to the point where it can be over whelming or annoying but there are also a lot of anime’s that are underappreciated.
I think for me it’s not really a specific anime that is underappreciated I think it’s more that a specific time of when anime was produced that are underappreciated. 

For me it’s more of the anime’s that were produced during the 90’s. Now by no means have I seen all the anime’s that were produced during this time period but from the ones that I did watch they were pretty amazing.

The specific ones I’m mostly talking about are the ones that aired during the time Toonami 

came on in the afternoons and that’s Rurouni Kenshin & 

Yu Yu Hakusho. 

I found these shows to be amazing and they had a story line that definitely drew me in. Also both series had a little something for everyone! It had fighting for the guys and even romance for the girls!

I just feel that since these anime’s were produced in the 90’s that not many people know about them which is a shame. I think a lot of fans are now caught up in the newer anime’s that they have forgotten what amazing anime’s have been produced before those.

But what anime’s do you feel are underappreciated? Please comment down below with your comments. I can’t wait to read them!

Also if your interested in watching Rurouni Kenshin or Yu Yu Hakusho you can watch the first 2 seasons of Rurouni Kenshin on Netflix and Yu Yu Hakusho I’m not able to find online on a legal site but I do know that you can buy the DVD’s!

  • I do agree that it feels like 90s anime just don’t get the love anymore. Tenchi Muyo! was also amazing for not only dubbing the voices but all the songs as well. Even a lot of anime (especially shoujo) from the early 2000s have been skipped. Poor Full Moon o Sagashite didn’t even get finished here.

  • I never watched Toonami, growing up, and I don’t get to now.
    I have heard of both series you mentioned, but personally do not feel like watching them, despite their once legendary status.
    Shows that I feel under appreciated, hmm, well, I personally do not know what they were like in there time, but now they are hardly know for the ones I think about.
    Uterwarmono is one that was under appreciated in its time, most people do not know that the new series currently airing is a sequel to it.

  • I’m discovering a lot of the 90’s & 2000’s anime in retrospect, but I agree there seems to be some really great stories that don’t get the recognition they deserve. So glad you mentioned Kenshin–one of my first anime and still a favorite. πŸ™‚

  • When I was in high school I was utterly obsessed with Blue Gender. I’m usually on the fence with anything involving a mech suit, but this was so much more to me. I actually own the series on DVD now.

    • Blue Gender was actually a really good anime. I really enjoyed it when I watched it. I’m also not a huge fan of mecha anime’s but this one was really good!

  • Loved seeing the title of the post because that is what Lita is all about muahhh lol 90 anime’s freaking love it and I remember the toonami days oh my childhood there was my savior toonami πŸ™‚ Speaking of Kenshin I am doing a very special post for this anime so I hope you do check it out when it comes out next week. currently rewatching it and felt like I need to do a special post on it πŸ™‚

  • I agree with everybody saying that we need 90’s anime. Anime like you mentioned like Rurouni Kenshin and YuYu Hakusho need some love again. I also feel like people have forgotten about Dragon Ball, not Z or Super but the original series. I am not sure if anybody misses this but what about Dragon Ball GT. Before Super Saiyan God, we had Super Saiyan 4.

    Also, if you are looking for a legal site to watch Rurouni Kenshin in Dub or Sub format, you can watch it here on Crunchyroll. It has 94 episodes excluding episode 95. You can probably find it on YouTube or DVD.

    They also have Sony English Dub in which it is called the earlier English Dub. The anime is titled Samurai X.
