Is there an anime you're crazy over, and you go to search for fellow fans only to find out that there really aren't very many of you out there?
If your answer is yes, then this is the community for you! [/cheese]
As a way of finding fellow fans of less-popular or well-known anime, or of creating new fans through pimpage, this community has been created. Please, reach out and touch someone with your love for a more obscure series, movie, or ova.
Naturally, everyone has a different idea of what anime is "virtually unknown or unheard of," so you can pimp any anime that you don't already know is wildly popular.
At the moment, this would mean that this is not the community to post in when you want to find fellow Evangelion fans, you know what I mean? If it's insanely popular already, it doesn't need your mad pimping skillz, so put them to better use by pimping something with a smaller fandom.
Examples of anime that does not need your pimping help: Sailor Moon, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Dragon Ball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Weiss Kreuz, Fruits Basket, Naruto, One Piece, Kyou Kara Maou!, InuYasha, Ranma 1/2, Full Metal Alchemist, Prince of Tennis, Yu Yu Hakusho, Wolf's Rain, Fushigi Yuugi, X, Card Captor Sakura, Gundam Seed... you get the idea. It's pretty much safe to say that if it's based on manga by CLAMP, produced by Gainax, anything Gundam, aired on Cartoon Network/Adult Swim/Kids WB/Fox, or has ever been on fandom_wank, it's probably not that unknown.
But if it's good and you think more people would like it if they just knew about it, post it here. Please be sure to include basic information about the series, like the name, the format it's available in (fansub or dvd), the length (if you know it, the number of episodes for a series), the genre (ex: scifi, comedy), the appropriate audience (if it's ecchi or otherwise not suitable for certain groups, please say so), etc.
The current focus is on anime, but pimping an under-appreciated manga is also acceptable at this time.
If any problems should arise, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of the maintainers -- either elite_stoat or sailormac.
And as long as you're looking to pimp or rec anime, also be sure to check out anime_wreck, where you can rec any anime or manga you like -- not just the under-appreciated ones.
