Did someone say "Kino"? The 2000s literally had an anime called exactly that.
Is Ergo Proxy underrated? Or do you mean underrated at the time?I really like R.O.D TV but don't really hear a lot of people talk about it.
this one was fun and once it stops becoming episodic it's a wild ride>>149
this looks pretty cool, should I start with the tv or the ova?
The TV is pretty much a sequel to the OVA just with a different cast of characters and a few changes here and there. So start with the OVA.I like them both and they remind me of Metal Gear Solid a bit with their modern world and super powers that you'd see in something like MGS2. Plus, Yoriko is a pretty fun character due to her easy going nature of just wanting to read books and avoid trouble which usually leads to her getting into fights she desperately wants to end. TV has a new set of characters with similar powers to Yoriko and they're just as fun.
yeah that sounds awesome. and I saw there's some steampunk influence, quite an alluring package there
I was thinking about watching this because meganekko christmas cake
I've heard multiple poor things about the R.O.D TV series but I absolutely loved the OVA. Should I go ahead and continue with the TV version after all?
I'd rate it better than the OVA to be honest, a lot more story occurs and the new characters are pretty fun, but if you're in it for Yoriko then ROD TV pretty much makes her a secondary character and focuses on the new characters for around 15-17 episodes before bringing her back in and making the story focus on her for the final few episodes. I think it also retcons some stuff from the OVA and the story is debatable whether it's good or not. I thought it was fine.If you liked it for the late 90s/early 00s world, and the action I'd say you'd enjoy it but if you dislike any of the new characters from the start then you'd probably dislike it. Give it a try anyhow, I watched it last year and can't really remember much beyond just liking it.
>Aria: the animation>Keroro>Hamtaroand that's all i can think about.
Twin SpicaArjunaGankutsuoI wanna say Twelve Kingdoms and Candidate for Goddess but neither got an ending.
Ergo proxy is just cult anime. Stuff like this doesn't rlly hit mainstream.
Suprised no one mentioned flcl.
FLCL is pretty popular imo
Never heard of it, your taste is too obscure for us plebs
Skullman is decent. Never seen anyone ever mentioning it online
hare guu is fun
if only someone leaked the abrmx of the entire series, I might actually get to watch itthe openings are bops
What does this mean? Did a cursory search but didn't really find anything helpful.
A catchall term for a remux done and solely shared on that one notorious anime-related private tracker.
These series deserve more love.
Can't believe I almost forgot this peak example of underappreciated 2000s kino.
>>168> FFU> needs more love
Yikes, Even the OP for that show is terrible.Gonzo had a lot of decent shows back in the day but that aint one of them.
It was fun, and Kaze is one of the best anime characters of the 2000s. Nerds just hate anything FF-related that isn't their precious Ivalice (Reddit: the setting).
In all fairness the story and world isnt the problem here, the different worlds connected how they were wasnt uninteresting, the way they walked you thru the whole thing was.
i love how flcl viewers are serial experiments lain,kill la kill,Space Patrol Luluco veterans like me lol
the 2020 movie about doremi fans sure was depressing
all you posted is shit. garbage thread

I'm not even dissing the show, I enjoyed it, but boy was that ever a weird one.
Considering how popular studio Bones used to be I'm always shocked at how little mention Scrapped Princess gets when people are discussing their work these days.
GA is so niche, but that's a good thing.
Some underrated ones imo.
Only Gungrave is any good
I started watching it recently and I can see why it would not be highly rated; the gags are on the weak side, and the episodes' plots are less imaginative than could be expected from the generic frame. Not to say it's not enjoyable, but 6 episodes in, the cute girls are carrying the show.Here's another space aliens comedy.
Unpopular opinion, i think GITS SAC was kino.
Real Drive for me, it's one of my favorites from the decade. Well produced, interesting world and concepts thanks to Masamune Shirow that get explored well, endearing characters, appealingly clean aesthetic that fits the setting and tone of the show, and its just a fun time.
The comedy improves in the later seasons.
Does this one count?

Sorry for this. I thought it didn't post.
Overman King Gainer. Its very underrated work of Tomino and isn't as popular as his other works.
into the trash
Anyone else here watch Vandread?
I did,back then I just finished watching Nadesico and was looking for something similar.It was surprisingly enjoyable but I can see some people getting turned down by the early CG scenes, I remember thinking they could get hard to follow during the earlier episodes.
Nice, I like Nadesico as well. I wasn't put off by the early CG I thought the series was quite comfy and was huge into anything remotely harem troped at the time. Which brings me to another underrated series of the 2000s. Girls Bravo!
I downloaded it a while back, but I'm yet to watch it. I love the character designs so I'll give it a go!
Anyone remember Birdy Decode? Late double OO but I feel like in spirit it fits in pretty good. Plus the openings and endings are great I still listen to them today.>>151
I watched this and I legit don't remember anything from it.>>180
I also vaguely remember this anime but I don't remember watching it Maybe my memory is just bad.
>>197>I watched this and I legit don't remember anything from it.
Funny, neither do I. I just remember enjoying it a lot.
Chrono Crusade was messy but it had an amazing ending. It's as if Gonzo wanted to atone for how much they butchered Hellsing by taking a similar IP and actually doing it justice.
Crusade was the first series I bought the entire DVD set for, long before I knew how to torrent things.God that ending was depressing. I have the ED song burned into my brain too at this point.
Fairy MusketeersCendrillon did nothing wrong.
I mainly read the manga but the anime was decent too. I have never seen anyone talk about MAR and it was something I have super fond memories of.
I was confused when I learned that it was classified at cyberpunk. It's more of a post-cyberpunk to me, given how it strays far visually and thematically from the cyberpunk everyone knows.I'd say Ergo Proxy is hard to watch cause you have to have a favorable state of mind, or mood at least, to watch continuously. Almost as if this sits beside how Tarkovsky intentionally makes his films; crafted to filter out people who can't sink time on it.
I recommend Tokyo Godfathers: a 2003 movie that speaks about a trio of homeless people on their quest to find the parents of a toddler they found on the streets.It may look like a complete comedy at first but it has its serious tones.
rod TV isnt perfect but its damn fun
Soremachi! But specifically the manga.
I watched the anime last year and loved it,I keep hearing good things about the manga so I probably should read it one day.
Recently finished The Twelve Kingdoms and thought it was pretty good it, even if I was somewhat burnt out by the end. It has a fuck ton of lore that it drops on you all the fucking time though, could barely keep up.
Can't believe the anime that in the past was considered surface level is now pretty obscure. Anyway, does anyone remember this? I enjoyed it for what it was despite some issues with it.>>206
Currently watching this now and I love it a lot. Looks like it's going to become one of my favorites.
I feel like the Metarex Saga would definitely be an interesting premise for a 'Sonic Adventure 3' type game. Sucks that it was an anime-only story. Cosomo was a qt
I find it more odd that only Lain got regularly talked about. Especially how until recently I considered Texhnolyze to be better than Lain. I'd need to get around to a rewatch sometime soon since somebody made an HD remaster a year or two ago.
I don't find it as odd because Lain is easier to get into. Texhnolyze is something that requires at least a second watching in order to 'get it'.
