Just the other day, someone mentioned to me that I watched a lot of anime that they’ve never even heard of before. After reading that comment, I decided to do something that I’d been considering for a while now. Compiling a list of some of the best anime that you might not have heard of. This list won’t be structured like you might expect. Instead of giving you a list of shows ranked just in order of their quality, this list will be ranked based on two different categories: how good I thought that the series was, and by how popular the series is. So a series that is great, but also relatively popular, could be ranked lower than a series that is good, but relatively obscure.
My hope is that even the most seasoned otaku will be able to find, and enjoy, an anime that they’ve never heard of or seen. I know that there may be some people who have actually seen every single anime mentioned on this list, and that’s perfectly fine because there are probably just as many people who haven’t seen any of them. Okay, now that that’s out of the way, here are the top 10 anime that you’ve, probably, never heard of:
