@13 yea, really. I know no one in RL that knows what Cowboy Bebop is except for my cousin, closest friend, and brother. It's a sad story, bro.
Cowboy Bebop an obscure anime?
Goddamn, what part of the world do you niggas live in?
@someone The Arctic, obviously.
uuh, maybe people have heard of this, but i just found "Shigofumi" from the magazine.. also, "Solty Rei".. i think it's kinda unrecognized in my environment..

Oh, what the hell, Bartender's still ongoing? (dropped it.)
Komi always makes the mistakes of putting his stories in JUMP. He makes some of the best shits I've read. (Apple)
Cassherns Sins always in Future Shop. See it all the time.
Oyasumk Punpun's not that popular due to there being a chicken and it being M. That's the only reason that I can think of. Though I know I loved it.
Sumomo/Mizu's normally known for her shounen-ai/yaoi stories so.....
This may/may not make up for the last anime I posted.
I don't know lots of people who know about Kaze no Stigma...
Crayon Shinchan and Dotto Koni Chan. These two were the best things ever and FUCK YOU if you dare to think different.
@Yoshiya, must be the difference in people I surround myself with, but I hear a lot of many of what you mentioned, and often find myself in discussions surrounding most of those series.
@acostoss Oh, that must be great. I haven't been around anime "elitists" for ages.
Get into/back into aniblogging, and talk with the guys on Twitter. You'll be glad you had.
@Yoshiya has already listed the animes I was going to mention so I'm left with few of them
Monster Paranoia Agent Ergo Proxy
@SENsei listed animes that I rarely hear, not directors
@Arachne thanks for saying ergo proxy i forgot to mention it. that was a pretty good anime.
Yea, i know i'm a failure.
Some anime I've watched that not a lot of people have heard of: RAINBOW: Nisha Roku No Shichinin (WARNING: graphic violence) About a bunch of delinquents who gets sent to a reform "school". There they learn to work together to survive the harsh punishments of the guards and doctor; and how they escape and try to make a living for them selves in the outside world
DRUAGA: The Sword Of Uruk & DRUAGA: The Aeges Of Uruk (Seasons not necessarily in this order) The story has the same feel as a World Of Warcraft game. A boy lives in a city that's situated in the foot of a tall tree/tower. He is also a "climber" who's job is it to accompany anyone who wishes to climb the tower in order to protect them from monsters or to climb it to look for treasure. In his party is an archer, mage and warrior. One day the mage disappears up the tower and he is in per suite to find her.
Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls (WARNING: echii & harem) About a guy who is the assistant teacher at a school. On his night arriving at the school a naked girl falls from the sky. He gets attacked by random girls when the naked one kisses him and she transform in to a very powerful samurai and beats them with lots of panty-shots and ripped clothing. It turns out he is a master samurai who can turn chosen people (mostly girls) into samurai with a kiss.
I like this not for the echii but the incredible textures and way this is animated.
And can you believe it, One Piece is not that well known here where I live :O GASP
I opened this thread and saw Haibane Renmei described as similar to Clannad and Kanon. Not sure if I should cry or laugh.
But then I saw Dennou Coil and felt a little better.
I don't spend much time with elitists/critics, but a few titles that nobody I talk to know of:
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (Please let me be wrong, and have all of you know this.) Hajime no Ippo and Eyeshield (Ignored because they're categorized as sports anime) Time of Eve (known by a lot of critics, not many casual watchers.)
