* Got to make a shout out to ''Manga/LetterBee'', a charming, gorgeously textured manga about a weepy letter courier and his many adventures. It has a deceptively cutesy, storybook style that may throw older viewers off; but it's well juxtaposed against a world two hairs shy of {{crapsack|World}} territory. In addition to a highly original, intensely complicated plot that evolves with the characters. It's a modest, yet immense series; chalked full of [[WorldOfWoobie Woobies]], {{Tearjerker}}s, [[CosmicHorrorStory epic, Lovecraftian storylines]], and just the right helping of {{Fanservice}}. And it's also just really, really pretty. Needless to say, it is woefully underrated.

* The ''Anime/MonsterRancher'' anime had pretty much everything you could ask for in an anime--a deep storyline, plenty of MomentsOfAwesome, knowing the stakes were serious, compelling characters, and a pretty good English dub. But it got sidelined by Pokemon and Digimon. Their [[VideoGame/MonsterRancher video game series]] are also pretty much underrated for the same reasons as mentioned earlier.

* ''Anime/CorrectorYui'' is among the most unique shows for its [[MagicalGirl genre]]. [[XMeetsY Combining]] the ideas of ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' and ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' is only the beginning of what made this show truly stand out among its closest competition at [[TheNineties the]] [[TurnOfTheMillennium time]], ''Manga/CardCaptorSakura'' and the aforementioned ''Anime/SailorMoon''. Sadly, this show [[NoExportForYou never made it into the United States]], has no {{Fansub}}s, and is continuously becoming [[SlidingScaleOfAnimeObscurity more obscure]] as the years go by. Worse still, only 18 of the 52 episodes have ever been subbed into English. If there is one show that desperately SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove and deserves every ounce/gram of it before it's completely forgotten (and thus, not having it completely subbed into English at the least), then this is certainly [[{{Pun}} The One]].

* ''Manga/TheLegendOfMotherSarah'' is a must read for readers who are dying to read about a heroic, realistic, adult female protagonist with no super powers being {{Badass}} and whose story does not revolve around men, relationships, sex, fashion or anything frivolous/girly, and with little to no gratuitous {{Fanservice}}. It's rather an [[TheEpic Epic]] with a lot of grim, serious and otherwise not very female-oriented themes (war, terrorism, survival, power struggles...) along with more female-friendly ones (motherhood, widowhood, [[GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion abortion]], [[NeverASelfMadeWoman making it as a woman alone]], family...). The whole thing written by the creator of ''Manga/{{Akira}}'', no less.

* ''Anime/{{Catnapped}}''

to:

* ''Anime/{{Catnapped}}''''Anime/{{Catnapped}}'' may look like your typical children's movie with its colorful and beautiful animation (as directed by Takashi Nakamura who was the animation director of {{Manga/Akira}}) and anthropomorphic cats, but it's much more than that--it's ''[[DerangedAnimation beautiful insane animation]]'' that doesn't pull punches with its story. While great to watch in either English or Japanese, what's also surprising for this kind of movie is that the English dub is ''really good'' for its time, Geneon spared no expense with this film (Sandy Fox as Meeko is debatable, although she's equally annoying in the original dub). Sadly, due to Geneon going bankrupt, copies are very much out-of-print, and there's no sign of the license being rescued in the future. But it's a definite must-see for animation fans.

Added DiffLines:

** Seconded; the manga has a lot of heart for a shounen, and the title leads have amazing chemistry together to prove they are truly inseparable, and they, too, have awesome interactions with other characters. The 2015 anime deserves mention as it went under a lot of people's radars when it aired, which is a shame as it was well-adapted by MAPPA despite a lot of stories being cut out for time. If anything, at least watch it for the villain, as brilliantly voiced by Creator/MegumiHayashibara.

* ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02". People constantly complain about certain plot threads being dropped or pairings and future careers they didn't enjoy, but if one stops nitpicking and just enjoys the ride, they might find a series with imagination, adventure, well-done emotional moments, funny dialogue, badass fights, and a well-earned happy ending. For this troper, it's Saturday Morning Cartoon Heaven.

* ''Anime/MacrossII'' was the first true sequel to the classic ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' series. Being done without the original creators' involvement has turned it into a black sheep of sorts within all of the ''Anime/Macross'' universe, even going so far as to declare it outside canon. While YMMV on its overall story, on its own merits, it stands as a great piece of anime, and its mecha (especially the GORGEOUS VF-2S), music and battles stand right there with some of the best in ''Macross''. Luckily, it has gotten a nod or two within canon (though some {{Take That}}s as well), and even got its own campaign in the last PSP ''Macross'' game.
