22chan's Underrated Anime Recs

When you've seen all the classics, it's hard to find anything else that really feels worthwhile. I find myself watching mediocre anime more often than not, and I'm sure many of you are in the same boat. That's why I've made this thread. We can share anime that we consider obscure enough to be overlooked easily, yet good enough that you'd be glad not to miss it. Note that these don't have to be totally out of the way, nor do they have to be complete masterpieces; just anything you think more people could stand to watch. I'll do a few write-ups to start us off:
>Aria the Animation
Fairly popular in some circles, but it doesn't seem to get talked about much. It's a very genuine portrayal of a beautiful, perfect world that makes me happy whenever I watch it. It's at least as good as K-On, so check it out if you liked that series.
Action with light science fiction and elements of mafia drama. The pacing is surprisingly subdued considering how absurd the fight scenes can get. The story takes place over many years and uses this to develop the characters impressively well towards a compelling conclusion. Not for people who want to take the whole thing seriously, but good if you think Shadow the Hedgehog was pretty cool.
Directed by Tomino in between Gundam and Zeta Gundam, among other things (making it not all that obscure, really). It's a mecha series, as one might expect, but it's more comedic than most of what Tomino is known for. His knack for character design shines here.

I might do more of these later, but that should do for the moment. Let me know if these aren't obscure enough, and of course, leave your own recommendations if you please.

Mirai Akari

So for all that keep in touch with virtual youtubers, what is the status of Mira Akari? Is she still popular? I met her twice a few years back and she seems like a nice young girl. Seemed full of life but quirky at times. Just wonder how she has been since it's been awhile. Hope she is doing alright still. TIA!

The first episode just came out. Thoughts? I think it's promising. Starting to feel the hype. The animation quality hasn't dropped as much as I thought it would, what with the change in studios.

Is there any reason why you still are attached to filthy 3D women, anon?
3D pigs:
>Will fuck Tyrone and his pals until age of 40 when she's "ready to settle down" after she's had all her holes gaped and mutilated
2D girls:
>Always beautiful
>Always caring
>Incredibly loyal
The only argument that 3D fans have is that you can't touch or talk to anime girls, however, being aware that none of you virgin faggots have talked to an actual woman, let alone had sex or even kissed one, I don't see why you are still so eager to defend the modern degeneracy imbued within 3D women.

I prefer the old ones. I recently watched MHA and read through Demon Slayer. MHA has really strong moments but imo the story is slow and the villain development isn't that great. Demon slayer got me hooked right on but the lack of a rival and how buddy buddy everone is and especially the final arc was a huge dissapointment to me personally. Naruto, Bleach, One piece was really enjoyable at the beginning. Naruto have Akatsuki, Bleach Aizen and arrancars, One piece have Crocodile, the pigeon leopard guy which i frogot the name of and a bunch of other characters. MHA has this kid with a boring aspiration and is following his masters will of wanting to destroy ,kinda boring if you ask me, and Demon slayer have that original demon guy which have an interesting introduction but his personality was boring. That is not to say that i dont enjoy these. I love the Stain arc, (the coolest villain in the show with a cool objective was a one arc villain) and demon slayer is the one where the fire dude and the train and especially the finale. But the whole show is not that interesting. Only one i really like in the current gen is AoT and a big fact of that is how the show is handling its final arc.

Coronachan OC

I love Coronachan! You love Coronachan! we all love Coronachan!
Draw some Cronochan OC.
Coronachan canon:
The first few Cronochans have a traditional chinese dress and coronavirus shaped hair pins. She also carried a bottle of corona. Her hair was a dark blue and she had green eyes. Later some drew her with wings to symbolize the bat stew and with a crown.

Direct translation

I would like to watch anime with more direct translation. What I mean by this is, word for word, there exact meaning (or closest approximation). With the exact same sentence structure as it is in Japanese. I believe this may help capture the original meaning of the dialog while also helping those trying to learn Japanese.

Do anime like this already exist?
Do you think this would be a good idea?

tldr; I'd like to see a more direct translation over localization.

I found another index and this one was a gold mine.
The file archive of some university computer club with some files dating back to the late 80s! (Tell me what you find) While exploring, I found a folder titled "anime.stuff" ( ). It contains a PDF file. The front page says "Japanese Anime Comments & Reviews by Fans for Fans!". I want to read more but I couldn't find out how to view or extract these ".gz" files. Does any1 know about anime.stuff source. All I could find from a DuckDuckGo (or Goolag) search is "animestuffstore" which I doubt is what I'm looking for.

Violet Evergarden

What did you guys think about this one?
I thought that it was pretty enjoyable and quite sad at times, but what i didn't like was that it felt really episodic i.e the episodes weren't connected to each other at all. Like, this episode we have 1 sad story and in the next one there's another.
And the way she finally understood what love is also was pretty fucking flat.
