Amines Hidden Gems


Recommended Posts

An older series I have trouble finding but I really liked:

Project A-ko (1986 I Believe)

And a more modern series that I absolutely fell in love with (and I hope they make a season 2) but I don't see referenced or talked about too often:

Prince of Stride: Alternative (2015)

Project A-ko 

That one is hugely nostalgic for me as it was one of the first anime VHS tapes I ever bought, and I recently bought Discotec’s remastered bluray version. Also one of the few OST cds I own. Pretty popular back in the day, it spawned a number of sequels that didn’t measure up (Cinderella Rhapsody seemed to have at least some potential, but Blue & Grey side were just awful). Probably limited appeal to newer fans as it is somewhat dated & rather silly (not to mention ecchi), but  one I always remember fondly.

More recently, the titles that seemed to fly largely under the radar this year for me were Miss Kuroitsu of the Monster Development Department in the winter season & Birdie Wing in the spring season (that one’s getting a 2nd season though)

Yeah! My Grand-father gifted me some of the OVA VHS Tapes when I was younger! I think they accidentally got donated to a Thrift Store when I had to move a lot. I saw Grey Side but didn't really like it as much as the OVA's.

Gall Force. A quite long and very strange, but rather good, series about an ongoing war with almost the same space women and a sort of cyborg doing battle with some very, very strange aliens and a computer program.

Go watch the series, it's worth watching, MarathonGuy1337 is right, you wouldn't believe us if we told you about the aliens.

Animedragon get it

"My Roommate is a Cat" (Doukyonin was Hiza, Tokidoki Atama no ue)

A SoL show from 2019, making it relatively recent compared to some other shows mentioned here, but something I still consider underviewed, or at least not talked about enough. It's also a pretty short watch, being 12 episodes like other seasonal shows.

The show follows the story of of Subaru, a socially awkward man who has separated himself from the rest of the world, and... a cat. While being a SoL anime, it's also the growth story of Subaru, and his companionship with Haru, the cat.

One thing I really like about the show is that it shows both the perspective of both Subaru (human) and Haru (cat). This bring really hilarious moments but also heartfelt and touching moments. It's not often you get to see an anime that's revolved around pets!

MAL here for the show (the reviews on MAL do a much better job at explaining than I do)

Also the opening song is one of my favorites of all time

While fairly recent, this one is very special to me (even included it as one of my favorites on MAL) as I found it very relatable to what I was going through when I first watched it.
