uh hi hello i've come here with two i've recently watched and still cry over weeks later.
one is called sirius the jaeger, and it's beautifully written and such a different take on the norm. i fell in love with it the first time i saw the art (thanks in part to ulla for that) and after watching it, the story is so, so good. it's only 12 episodes, so it's an easy watch (which i did in one day oops) but it's def something i'll put on again!
the second one is called banana fish, and i'll start by saying i went into that one knowing absolutely nothing about it. again, i was taken by the art, and the story soon too my heart with it. it does start out a tiny bit rough, but the characters are so... good and wonderful, and also heartbreaking. i still tear up a tiny bit over the whole series, but it's a good kinda memory!
Ginger I’m here with a couple obscure but very different recommendations!
Mononoke. Also it’s prequel Ayakashi Bakeneko.
This series is just amazingly beautiful. It’s a horror series about yokai that follows a really mysterious main character, and I honestly can’t figure out how to sum it up. It’s really unique in many ways. In fact I think looking stuff up about it might wreck some of the atmosphere. Every episode is like an art piece. I will say some episodes have some very dark and disturbing things as a warning though.
Arashi No Yoru Ni the movie.
This movie is fricken cute, and like a 180 from the above. The story is about a wolf named Gabu and a goat named Mei who become friends by accident, despite the fact wolves obviously eat goats. When Mei’s flock and Gabu’s pack find out things go badly all around and the two of them have to decide how far they’ll go to stay together.
It’s a really dramatic and heartfelt movie. It’s probably the only basically gay kids/family movie I can think of too, tbh. The Japanese voices are also just really good. Especially Mei’s voice, he is really nice to listen to.

watcher First person to list an anime I've seen before, just started watching Mob this Monday. Huge fan, really feels like watching One Punch man along with some other anime. Can't wait for the next episodes. Just love how everyone around the Main character are screaming at him to try harder, while the Main just zoned out unfocused. Completely refreshing from lots of anime tropes. There's other things here and there really enjoyed, but majorly gotta say it was quite enjoyable.
ravyn ⭑ Gave Sirius the Jaegar a shot, loved the artwork and the two brothers. I'm only halfway through, but am watching it, thank you for the suggestion. Really into what "the ark" truly is.... I hope its cool.
//Anything not listed have yet to watch, will get around to it eventually so I'll be tagging later on.... one day.//
kappaccino, you're not supposed to give the holy sacred creation that is Mononoke! It must be treasured and hidden at all costs! xD
@ginger, you don't have to watch all of these. xD Pick any that seems most appealing to you (if any).
Angel's Egg [film] an artistic animation film, not one for entertainment. Haven't seen it myself yet, but I read in Yoshitaka Amano's biography that he (original character/logo artist for Final Fantasy and character designerof a gazillion chars we all know) and Mamoru Oshii (director of GitS) made this together because their job offer for Lupin III with Hayao Miyazaki fell through. At the time of Angel Egg's release, it was so poorly received in Japan that Mamoru Oshii feared it'd cost him his career because he was no longer getting calls for work. XD However, now it seems to be received well as an artistic film. At the time of its creation, its detailed style really was a marvel for animation.
Mushi-shi [series] Not sure if this one is actually underrated, but it - along with Mononoke - is among my top favourites. It has a true love for nature, and I think it's one of those rare anime adaptions that is probably better than its manga counterpart if only for the way we can see and hear how the nature as well as mushi move, et cetera. It's the only show I really wanted my dad to see, but he never could (too sickly to sit down and concentrate).
Letter to Momo [film] This one has a rather Studio Ghibli vibe to it, but it - unlike quite a few other newer films these days - didn't sacrifice plot/story for beauty. I found it to be touching, but then I could relate to the main character in some ways.
Colorful [film] Trigger warning for this one. If you struggle with depression, existentialism, etc. (I don't want to give away too much), don't watch this one. Despite the topic, it is a feel-good film that beautifully portrays recovering and coming to age. I could relate to parts of this one as well.
