* ''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.

** 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.

* ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar:" While it's considered legendary in Japan, it isn't nearly as well-known in America. It deals with deep themes, such as poverty and nuclear war. The villains can either be [[FreudianExcuse really sympathetic]] or really cruel, either way making them memorable. There are plenty of AwesomeMoments, HeartwarmingMoments, and TearJerker moments.

* ''Manga/HelenESP''. It's a two-volume manga about a blind, deaf and mute girl who finds out she has PsychicPowers, by the author of Manga/FrankenFran! ''Helen'' has interesting characters and can be quite [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] at times.

* ''Anime/JuuniSenshiBakuretsuEtoRanger'' had a decent following in the Philippines, [[NoExportForYou the only country it was ever exported to]], but is almost entirely unknown nearly everywhere else. It's a charming take on the FracturedFairyTale genre with a lovable cast of {{Funny Animal}}s and, though somewhat formulaic at first and containing a few baffling decisions, it has a number of HeartwarmingMoments, and [[KnightOfCerebus it gets very, very dark towards the end]] when the BigBad shows up. Also, it was made by the same company as the relatively famous ''Anime/SamuraiPizzaCats''.

* ''Anime/RealDrive'' is an anime created by Masamune Shirow and Creator/ProductionIG (the same people who produced ''Manga/GhostInTheShell''). It is highly enjoyable, having a [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming story]] and some of [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome the best music]] I've heard in a while. It's beautifully animated Creator/ProductionIG did a superb job and paid even the smallest details attention. The end result is an anime that is filled to the brim with SceneryPorn: one can almost feel the warm tropical sun on them as they watch. There's no defined storyline: in a sense, it's like a slice of life show that proceeds at a casual, relaxed pace that shows how technology has come to affect humanity in ways we cannot imagine. Despite having all the elements of a good slice-of-life/speculative fiction type anime, it remains virtually unrecognized by the anime community.

* ''[[Anime/UchuuKyoudai Space Brothers]]'' is an incredibly [[HeartwarmingMoment heartwarming]] and inspiring manga and anime series that, despite being very popular in Japan, has a very small following in the US. The series focuses on the newly unemployed Mutta as he rekindles his dream of becoming astronaut. However Mutta struggles to follow in the footsteps in his younger brother Hibito, who's slated to become the first Japanese man on the moon. What makes this show truly special is that it doesn't follow most anime troupes, making it very accessible to even those not familiar or a fan of anime. It's also a very pro-NASA/JAXA/Space Travel show with a very positive take on American (and global) culture.

* ''Manga/{{Murcielago}}'' is a story about Kuroko Koumori, as life-long serial killer with 715 kills to her name formerly on death row, who works as an extremely controversial {{godzilla threshold}} for the police to track down and kill other serial killers they simply cannot handle...at least when she's not trying to get into the panties of the latest curvy number that she's helping. Joined by a cast of varied characters including her partner who has an excellent mental GPS and puts {{drives like crazy}} to ''exceptional'' use, her {{mafia princess}} girlfriend who's as violently protective as she is in love with her, and multiple other recurring characters. Not for those unable to handle graphic depictions of gory and brutal violence, but somehow manages to mix all of that with instances of fanservice, murderer manhunts, villains with varyingly sympathetic origins and motives, multiple dangling sequel hooks for previous arcs, and overhanging theme of the morality of using someone who is undeniably mentally imbalanced as a "fight fire with fire" approach.
