What's the most obscure anime you have watched?

What is the most obscure anime you watched? I’ll start with: “Shōjo Tsubaki” or “The Camellia Girl”. Even though this anime film gathered some steam recently thanks to YouTube, it’s definitely still unknown to many people.

It’s a guro ero film, so its not for everyone. But its style of animation and grungy “feel” is fascinating to me, bear in mind this anime was made by only one artist (Hiroshi Harada).

I don’t know how obscure it is, but it’s definitely weird. This is the Pop Team Epic (I really liked it)

I don’t know what is obsure or not. I don’t really keep up on what is popular (or new for that matter) I have Netflix and zoro.to (after a series I hit the random button on zoro). What’s new on Netflix isn’t necessarily new IRL.

All that matters is that it’s new to you. Who’s cares about actual time line. Yeah Netflix gets a lot of there stuf later then others. But I give them credit for trying to expand there inventory. There are so many different streaming services out there

Same for me not sure what is obscure and what not, for me Madoka Magika was kinda dark when I was expecting a really chill and funny magical girls anime but it went differently :joy: I’m not waiting for Uzumaki to be animated in the 2023!

Recently it would be Macadamia Wasshoi!

But I’ve gone down some rabbit holes:
Dual!, Project Arms, Ichigo 100%…
I guess anything from Masaki Kajishima…

Best one that comes to mind is Punch Line.

Basic premise, (TLDR at the end) the world gets destroyed (like ACTUALLY destroyed) every time the MC gets flashed. And we all know what I mean by flashed…
But it’s the REASON the world ends that keeps the plot slowly unraveling its multiple layers. As an author, it would take me hours to explain the subtext, but thankfully the show does a fantastic job of making everything understandable with practically no exposition required.
TLDR: Everything that happens in each episode is orchestrated and has a deeper purpose, which we won’t see until later episodes. Amazing writing disguised as parody of trope.

Did they ever finish NANA? I believe the Author got sick. :confused:

I enjoyed Paradise Kiss. Watched it in High School MANY MANY MANY Moons ago. haha

Nope… Nana is still on hiatus…

From what I read, the author is feeling better, but still can’t get back to drawing… Ugh… must be tough😖

Almost the same here, but I refuse to believe I left high school more than a couple of years ago… :rofl::rofl::rofl: this is not right!

Most of the “aha” moments are at and beyond the halfway point in the story, so it might take some patience.
