Anime that you feel gets less attention than it should.

There's the popular and widely seen anime, like Death Note, Naruto, Dragonball Z, etc. Any you feel gets way less attention than it should? There's a few I've seen which I love yet isn't too widely known. I figured most others feel the same way. Polar Bear's Cafe (or Shirokuma Cafe) is a good example of that. It's a great anime, and I don't see it mentioned or talked about much. Squid Girl and Gugure! Kokkuri-san are similar in this regard. They are some of my favourites though so I guess it's not surprising that I'd think that.
No Game No Life, Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui, Skip Beat!, Megami Kouhosei, and other series that require a season two, three, etc.
Mononoke (not the ghibli movie), Katanagatari, shinsekai yori, and noien are all wonderful one shot anime. Beautifully animated and A+++ art with really interesting stories. I think the only one that kinda lags behind is Katanagatari cuz its wordy and it has problems with pacing.
Panty and Stocking, Uchouten Kazoku, Hibike! Euphonium, Tonari no Seki-Kun, Lovely Complex, Air Gear, Eyeshield 21, Himouto! Umaru-chan and Wakaba Girl. Those are off the top of my head, there's probably a bunch more I'd name that I really enjoyed.
Monster gets no love and often at times thrown away.
I've got two and that's chivalry of a failed knight and acchi kocchi
Xillia stole my answer. Love that show. By the same token, Naoki Urasawa's other work, Master Keaton, is criminally obscure. I'd also be willing to bet almost no one here has heard of The Twelve Kingdoms. Boogiepop Phantom is another one. If you dig creepy horror stuff you should totally give it a watch. EDIT: I'm adding Video Girl Ai and Please Save My Earth to this list too. PSME in particular is an excellent OVA.
Onsen Yōsei Hakone-chan https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/ac/Onsen_Y%C5%8Dsei_Hakone-chan_volume_1_cover.jpg/230px-Onsen_Y%C5%8Dsei_Hakone-chan_volume_1_cover.jpg Very funny/cute Anime about a ancient hot spring spirit that looks like a little girl and a guy that found her. That guy, the girl he likes,the hot spring spirit, and some friends have little adventures. Very good but the only downside is that this Anime is short. 13 episodes each like 10-12 minutes if I remember correctly. 10/10
Psycho Pass is amazing but, I don't know many people who have see. It
@arcaduck101 Really? I thought it was pretty popular. All I know about it is that the writer is the same guy behind Madoka Magica, so that alone is enough to make me want to watch it.
