Pick the most obscure anime in your top 10. If somebody else in the thread has seen it you lose.

>Ichigo Mashimaro

It's not super obscure, but it's the best I got.


'99 To Heart.


Soul Taker, maybe?


I'm not that into anime so I don't know if this is obscure, I'm going with Galaxy Express 999

Probably Alien 9 or Princess Tutu. Obscure means different things to different people though so it's tough to say. I dunno if Haibane would count as "obscure". Ichigo Mashimaro is on there for me as well though, so good taste OP.


I loved Alien 9 too. It made me feel dread in a way a lot of psychological horror shows try and fail to do. The way the main girl is always crying somehow makes everything feel hopeless. Also the Yellow Knife made me genuinely uncomfortable in a way tv monsters never normally do.

Nice taste to you as well. I'll have to check out Princess Tutu.

I saw C3 a long time ago, it was ok. I forgot about it until I went looking through my list for this thread.

kannazuki no miko

Seen haibane. Princess tutu is another one of my top 10s


File: 1593488534630.png (397.1 KB, 460x647, windy tales.png)

windy tales for me


Is that actually one of your favorites? It looks weird as fuck. I'll add it to my watch list.

Always nice to see different art styles, I'll have to check it out.


Lotsa anime I've never heard of here. I'll have to make a list though since I think you all have pretty good taste


File: 1593526843061.jpg (52.31 KB, 500x281, Kizuna kick.jpg)

Kizuna Ichigeki

Good taste by the way.


I absolutely loved Haibane Renmei, it's one of my favorites.

Cat Soup is great. I like showing it to people.

Not in my top 10 but very close
Kachou Ouji
miserable salary man reminisces about his glory days of being a rock musician suddenly he gets the opportunity to play again when a hot alien uses his guitar skill to destroy the enemy.


File: 1593575728416.png (29.47 KB, 484x488, __amano_misao_battle_progr….png)

Battle Programmer Shirase. I'm confident of victory here since it's objectively pretty bad, I just like it.

IM and Princess Tutu are both among my favourites. I loved the Alien9 manga too, but haven't watched the anime.


I was trying to remember where I had seen this anime before, turns out it was this AMV that I saw way back many years ago
>Battle Programmer Shirase
Definitely never heard of this one, but that girl is a qt


File: 1593618738378.webm (2.7 MB, 1128x480, tekkon.webm)


Alien 9 is great.

I thought it was pretty well known… then again it depends on who you ask. Same goes for Haibane Renmei. I feel like most people on this board have at least heard about it, but it's not well known if you ask a typical person who watches anime.

Anime Mirai/Tamago and Nihon Animator Mihonichi are worth seeing in general.

I was going to post this one.


File: 1593641347791.jpg (120.42 KB, 708x1000, __ajimu_najimi_medaka_box_….jpg)

Amer Béton, as localized here! Lost.

When it comes to my 5-star-rated shows, the ironic choice would be Hametsu no Mars, and the most obscure actual show would probably be Medaka Box: Abnormal.



Gakuen Alice
It`s like Hero Academia mixed up with To Aru but it`s a shoujo (the anime has no romance though). The MC studies in a school where everyone has a superpower and her power is to nullify other people`s powers.

I actually saw Tekkon Kinkreet about a month ago at a friend's recommendation. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The world-building is beautiful.


File: 1593702907292.png (437.06 KB, 650x925, Ajimu bedtime abilities.png)

Medaka box isn't niche surely


File: 1593727158682.gif (1.73 MB, 500x296, lipstick.gif)


I were expecting to lose, but not this fast. Nice!

Your friend has good taste then. Same goes for you, since you liked it.
I agree on the world-building part; while the plot's basically a ying-yang struggle of sorts, it takes place in such an amazing world.

The French market sure is amazing… You have other Taiyo Matsumoto manga as well, while the US has finally released Ping Pong after so many years.
Can't read French, so I gotta piggyback on what the USA releases anyway.

Medaka Box isn't very obscure… I think? It gets popularity points for 1) being a shounen, 2) being made by GAINAX, 3) Nisio Isin's story.


File: 1593981694485-0.jpg (185.6 KB, 1920x1080, mpv-shot0017.jpg)

Also the Last Exile.


File: 1593985661452.png (1.07 MB, 1280x720, TurningGirls.png)

In other company I would be confident that nobody would know these two. Posting these two favorites in the august Sushi presence invites mockery - of course you already know both of these.

But just in case:

1) Bikini Warriors - 4 minute episodes.
Fun with the cliches of D&D.

2) Turning Girls - 4 minute episodes.
I really can't express how good this is. People on Kiss Anime comments have boasted about dropping it after 30 seconds. It's extraordinarily marvelous. Also, if you look up the background to the production, there is a good anecdote of how it came to be made.


File: 1593997843368.jpg (3.82 MB, 3000x3643, yande.re 30548 galaxy_expr….jpg)

…I guess it is obscure then. It's a really nice show based (sort of) on night on the galactic railroad. Most of the episodes are the adventures that happen when the 999 stops off at a planet. The film about cats called night on the galactic railroad is good too.

Range Murata should do more character/art design for anime


File: 1594030443409.jpg (1.53 MB, 3492x4593, 6885d13be089d21e1fcc8d7a59….jpg)

It's not really obscure. It's more like a lot of people who have heard about it never got to watching it. Same goes for LoGH, it's a decently popular show not many people have seen.

Agreed. Shame he worked for one of the most mediocre studios there were and only got to do artwork and character designs for 4-5 anime noone really talks about.


File: 1594033484011-0.png (1 MB, 817x1600, B9D.png)

So should Yoshitoshi Abe.

It takes one image to make an ABe fan cry. ;_;

I've actually seen some of this when I was much younger, but not the whole thing. It's a very interesting show that I'd probably have gone back to by now if it weren't so long.
>he worked for one of the most mediocre studios there were and only got to do artwork and character designs for 4-5 anime noone really talks about.
At least Last Exile was pretty good! I haven't seen that semi-recent mecha show he did art for but I understand it was pretty mediocre if not straight up bad. You'd think the better anime would seek out the better artists to do their art but I guess not. Or is it perhaps a case of him just not being popular? Wish I knew more about the industry honestly, maybe it's time to watch Shirbako lol.
Yeah he's another of my favorite artists for sure. I have a lot of his and Murata's artbooks. At least most of what ABe's worked on is pretty great, and so is his manga!


File: 1594037615013.jpg (104.29 KB, 853x480, 627abe4e7a01fb1a5afd10c6be….jpg)

I'm actually amazed someone other than me posts Murata Renji artworks. Are you a copy of me, or am I a copy of you?

Anyone who likes Murata has a high probability of liking ABe as well, since these two have collaborated in the past.

>Or is it perhaps a case of him just not being popular?

Well, he was popular enough to be able to release a few artbooks and be invited for a couple of shows. Unfortunately there's a lot of wasted talent here and there, e.g. the latest anime ABe worked on was REALLY bad. Everyone wants to forget about its existence - a shame, because ABe did some real good art for it.

>I'm actually amazed someone other than me posts Murata Renji artworks. Are you a copy of me, or am I a copy of you?
Who knows but I'm glad there's other fans of his on Sushi. He draws very cute girls and I love his weird scifi clothing designs
>these two have collaborated in the past.
Ehhh? You mean on that Robot magazine? Or something I'm unaware of?


What have you done, maniac
I wanted to forget about it
