3 Fate/Stay Night Fate/Stay Night Fate/stay night is a Japanese visual novel and anime series by Type-Moon. There are three story lines in the visual novel: Fate, Unlimited Blade Works, and Heaven's Feel. A 24-episode anime series based on the Fate route and a film based on the Unlimited Blade Works route were made by Studio Deen. A more.

It's not underrated anywhere else where anime is involved, but over here on TheTopTens, it surely is underrated. I never see anything on the list feed where a visitor or a user other than me votes for something Fate/Stay Night-related. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Not many people nowadays talk about Fate/Stay Night anymore. It's a shame.

I don't know this anime but it has certainly caught my attention. I want to see it!

Fate/stay night originated from a game that came out in 2004.
Within a span of 13 years there's also Fate/ stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, Fate/ stay night: Heaven's Feel, Fate/ Zero, Fate/ Grand Order, Fate/ Apocrypha, Fate/ strange Fake, Fate/ Extra, Fate/ Extra: Last Encore, Fate/ Extella, Fate/ Hollow Ataraxia, Fate/ Unlimited Codes, Fate/ tiger colosseum, Fate/ labyrinth, Fate/ school life, Fate/ kaleid, Fate/ Koha Ace and Fate/ Prototype.
With all of these prequels, sequels and spinoffs that take form as anime, manga, novels, games and movies, not to mention its overwhelming popularity in Japan, how this franchise is rarely talked about on this site will forever baffle me.

5 Arata: The Legend
6 Samurai 7

Is a retelling of a classic but in a fantastical setting including mechs and whatnot.

7 Nabari no Ou
8 Hell Girl

An amazing series. The main character Ai Enma is a great and tragic protagonist.

My favorite horror anime! Sadly it gets little to no attention.-Vestalis

9 Samurai Champloo Samurai Champloo Samurai Champloo is a Japanese anime series developed by Manglobe. Samurai Champloo is set in an alternate version of Edo-era Japan with an anachronistic, predominantly hip hop, setting. It follows Mugen, an impudent and freedom-loving vagrant swordsman; Jin, a composed and stoic rōnin; and Fuu, a more.

This anime is full of action, witty comedy and overall very entertaining. Even though its story and ending were lacking, fans still loved watching it the entire way through.

Unfortunately, all people wanted to watch at the time in terms of action anime were "Naruto" and "One Piece", which is why Samurai Champloo didn't gain much attention.

Completely enjoyable. story, art work. etc.

10 Jūsō Kikō Dancouga Nova

It is such a shame this anime got overshadowed by Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann as it came out the same time as TTGG. - PerfectImpulseX

One of the few good animated T.V. show remakes - PerfectImpulseX

Even though it has almost nothing to do with the source material - PerfectImpulseX

11 Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple

I don't hear many people praise or talk about this anime, but it certainly is worth the watch, even the reviews of it on youtube don't have many comments about it.
