Rare and/or forgotten anime movies.

I posted a similar topic to this before,but...I wanted to get down to the real nitty gritty of what I discovered quite recently on YouTube.

Oh sure,Dragonball gets all the attention,but personally I was never a fan of such an overrated cash cow to begin with,however I did find the original a lot more entertaining than all that Z claptrap and the current "Super" series going on.

Anyhoo,I found that the very very best animes(Imho.)are the underrated ones that get no attention and vanish quite quickly.

And to top it all off,there are animes out there that sadly never made it here to the USA,and I wonder if they ever will.

Here for your viewing pleasure are some of the most amazing and forgotten anime movies I as an anime fan ever laid eyes on.

Nayuta(1986)

California Crisis(Also 1986)

Del Power X

Bobby's in too deep
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7qrWR3B7oQ

Space Fantasia 2001 nights
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSPISdgPHnY

TO-Y(1987.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXXEVQ-0B8k

Nineteen19 OVA (1990)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-Mqjl3wTVM

And that's about all the rare and hard as hell to find animes that I know of. How the hell these never made it to America I will never know.

Like I said,maybe we should write to our anime distribution companies that are still around.

Anyways,enjoy!

I was never really into the Anime series'....more just the films.
Ghost in the Shell, Akira, Vampire Hunter D etc.

I did like the Initial D series about drifting though.

I'm a MASSIVE fan of many 1980s and 1990s anime OVA's. Among my favorites are:

Robot Carnival (Starlight Angel):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlggqIPKZN4
I fell in love with this little short the late night I saw it randomly played on the Sci-Fi channel so many years ago. I never forgot it. It left a huge impression on me.

Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend (Watch at your own risk! I consider this a brilliant masterpiece. It pretty much invented the tentacle porn trope, but there is so much more to it than that. It is gorgeous, groundbreaking, cruel, brutal, funny, and many other things):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzXp1A3DRsI

Cyber City Oedo 808 (I don't use the term "bad ass", like, ever, but that is the best way to describe this anime. It is SO AWESOME. If you're looking for a great forgotten anime that isn't stupid and isn't nearly as outrageous as Urotsukidoji, I highly recommend this:

Spirit Warrior: Peacock King:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJx5F_ds_bM&t=51s

Vampire Hunter D. This one is pretty famous. I wouldn't call it forgotten, but it is from the same era as the others.

The Ys OVAs:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vEtOgs6yXo

Demon City Shinjuku, The opening fight scene to this is so incredible!:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_91QsS-nNU&t=186s

As a creator, anime OVA's from the '80s are one of my biggest inspirations. I still watch them regularly and am often on the hunt for more.\

Cool to see another fan of California Crisis. That is a good anime, though the ending is bizarre. I think the creators were planning on continuing the story, but perhaps it wasn't popular enough to warrant another episode.

Cool post Neil Allen! I totally would've recommended Robot Carnival if you hadn't. And I bought Cyber City on Amazon last year for $5.

I'd recommend Riding Bean..not sure if that counts as obscure, there was just a Kickstarter for it recently. And MD Geist.

Thanks for the reply there Neil,I appreciate it. And no worries,i'm familiar with almost all of the animes you posted,I have some on VHS and some on DVD.

However,and this is just my opinion on Urotsukidoji,I only saw the whole ova on YT years ago and I for one never considered it a masterpiece,it...left a pretty bad taste in my mouth in so many ways,I mean for me at least the 2nd episode was the only one I found tolerable,but it's cool man to each his own as they say.

But yeah,watch at your own risk is right.
Nice to see we understand together a rare classic like California crisis,but again I can only hope that some of the USA's anime distribution companies get ahold of animes like that.

Imo,it would be so sweet,it'd be like a LOST CLASSICS anime collection on DVD.

I also have Robot Carnival and riding bean,two great classics!

Haha, you're welcome. Talking about forgotten old anime is fun. I really love this stuff. Stylistically, I like this sort of stuff much better than the great majority of more modern anime. I don't even follow much anime from the 2000s on. 1985 to about 1992 are the best years for
anime, in my opinion.

I watched Riding Bean a few days ago because of the recommendation and I had a lot of fun!

About Legend of the Overfiend, I completely understand why someone would find it detestable, and I wouldn't disagree, it is rather off putting, but at the same time, I think it has a lot if artistic merit. It looks spectacular, the soundtrack is great, the fight scenes are put together really well, I actually think the story is interesting, the demon designs are pretty cool, and, to me at least, it's really funny. There is a lot more to it than just the shocking stuff, in my opinion.

Legend of the Overfiend is a good film....but people only focus on one area of it.

Iím not as well versed in this stuff as you guys Iíve enjoyed a lot of anime, it mainly the mainstream stuff. I really love almost anything put out by Ghibli.

About as far off the beaten path Iíve gone, and enjoyed it, was Giant Robo. I freaking loved that series.
