Obscure anime that aired in your country.
Bonus points if it became a cult hit.
>People in South America thought this was gonna be the next Card Captor Sakura.
It aired a few years in a row during the summer holidays, however they never actually finished airing all the episodes as the holiday wasn't long enough
This little shit is very popular in my country. The series made quotable dirty remarks and punchlines well before Seitokai Yakuindomo.
I forget the name, but it has shota and that can transform into a dude by drawing a pentagram.
Another one is Dual Parallel Trouble Adventure.
Shin-chan was pretty fun to watch.
>talking shit about my first waifu
I'll fucking find your IP address and hunt you down, fag.
The very first time I got pissed off for the best girl not winning.
10+ years later, I'm still mad.
I don't remember well but I think it did. MC had to compete against the other "track owners" to find the pieces and complete the ultimate track for some reason.
Yeah, man this is the biggest most unexpected nostalgia from Latin Fox Kids.
There was another anime that I've been searching for. It was magical girl and it ended with the main girl saving a sleeping prince, also aired in Fox Kids.
I don't remember if it was this.
It felt like a movie.
I remember Monster Rancher well, I had the game too and it was fun going around my house hoping to find CDs that contained monsters, Holly was waifu tier too.
I doubt anyone remembers this on /a/ but this is essentially what you get when you cross post-apocalyptic Earth and card games.
One of the most obscurest anime I remember
>Cyberteam in Akihabara
I think this is it. Thanks you, the final piece of my obscure childhood anime. Ive been looking for this for ages, I hope this is it
On a side note, another anime
It aired in the UK on BBC, in my country I was able to watch it that way.
Holy shit, I really forgot this series, It was strange, but awesome.
Pic related, Manga raw fucking where.
these two which I remember from my childhood background .
I wonder what this show was like in its original language
Not obscure, but I wanted to wreck this little whore.
the latin dub was hilarious
>live action sequel
What the shit.
Is it any good?
Francophones are particularly rabid about it. It's pretty mediocre, though.
The only thing I remember about this is when the 3 MCs fusion they selfs into some golden faggot and destroy the villain. Then there's some time loop of some shit like that and the red MC is being saved by a little girl (which is the scene from the first episode but with a different girl).
Holy shit I need to rewatch this.
One of the first things I saw that tried to combine 2D with CGI. It suckes ass but was entertaining.
>live in Brazil
>remember Saint Seiya, El Hazard, Tenchi Muyou, Shaman King, Sakura and Sailor Moon
>all those uncensored
oh, right, thanks
Another one I used to watch and can't remember the name, it was some sci-fi ambiented anime. IT was set on the future, there was an empire and a civil war. The protagonist was a member of a tribe that had fire powers. He joined the revolution. Another one of the protagonists was really strong. At some point the protagonist lost his fire powers.
Can someone recognize this anime?
Bizarre as fuck for my childhood standars.
I remember that, it was similar to Dino King.
Pic related, this has been transmitted in an Venezuelan TV channel.
Feels good to know I grew up watching masterpieces such as Doraemon, Kochikame and Lupin III while you third world plebeians were watching the cheapest licenses your developing country's TV channels could afford.
When I first "really" discovered subtitled anime like probably a decade ago, something I really liked was watching the anime I wawtched dubbed as a kid and listening to their original OPs on Youtube and I was amazed just at how great they sounded
Anybody else do this?
>all this normalfag shit
Hey, the heady days of Gaiking, Grandizer, Tranzor-Z. . .that was bread-and-butter back in the day.
>tfw I used to wish the alien bad guys sent against Grandizer would end up being his pals instead
>Implying those chinese cartoons wasn't transmited here.
Even they transmited Black Jack and Kinnikuman.
From back when Sunbow had their dicks so far up Toei's asshole that Toei was speaking English.
If there's one thing Mexico did right.
If there's one fucking thing.
It's the dub for this show.
I laughed so fucking much.
Every single Spanish speaker should watch this.
Moro was too sexy. She collaborated in kickstarting my preference for 2D.
I was going to post Kaleido Star too. It's obscure because no one talks about it, and the average person won't remember it because it didn't appear on Saturday morning cartoons.
This. It also took me fucking forever to find a place to download it years later.
I remember learning (basic) fishing techniques from this and using it on Zelda fishing minigame like it was the most genius thing ever.
i remember watching and loving this back in sonora on cartoon network, it was pretty cool
I'm pretty sure I'm the only one on /a/ who watched this.
>people not knowing who Wilbell voll Erslied is
For some reason it showed her instead this .
Also, BR anons, other day i was trying to remember about an anime which wqs aired at CN on sundays morning, i just remember its ED, which has a baby dragon tyring to fly/walk. Does anyone know what anime was?
Yes I do. I remember it was pushed as the next big anime in Chile. It didn't work out because it was bland and the anime fad had already died out by that time. Since then, Chilean television took a nosedive into absolute shit.
This also aired down here in Brazil on CN. No one noticed except YTP makers.
this, remember being a little shit and getting boners from watching it.
This used to be in Mexico not many people remember it :/
Really underrated anime, really. The protagonist was hilarious.
>his dream is to take over the world
>refers to his friends as slaves
>watch this on a saturday afternoon
>literally shedding tears out of boredom
played like every fucking day on YTV and a bunch of people i knew had the GBA games
>watch this the other day
>Ryu spends literally 3/4ths of the episode doing the Hadouken arm motions
>>Mon Colle Knights.
I'll let that pass today because Gluko is such a cutie.
I have been trying to remember this anime name for literally years.
Opps, someone had already posted it, didn't see it.
To be honest tho, it's based on a very popular children character from Italy. Somehow Japan and Italy have a number of co-produced anime.
This one was a French animated series in co-production with Japan. Season one was really good but they dropped the ball on season 2.
But isn't Time Bokan like, EXTREMELY popular in Japan? Would you really call it obscure?
I know it was very popular in Italy too, in at least 4 iterations.
Even for a dignified toy commercial it was kinda shitty.
>Implied loli merchant rape
>Implied Priestess incest rape
>Explicit After sex scene between loli Takius and LORDO OF VERUMIRION guy
Ragnarok Online The animation: Everybody's getting raped
This is another one I'd be really surprised if it was recognized, even on /a/, but it used to be FUCKING EVERYWHERE on local tvs in the 80s in Italy. Man, I miss the time when you could just browse a few channels at 7 AM and find, like, 5 different anime, from slice of life, to gag series, to giant robots.
There were quite a few with the frenchies as well.
Here's an italian/japanese collab that I really liked.
Not sure about that, I associate it to obscureness because it was aired on a local station that also aired constant reruns of the Three Stooges and the Munsters for filler time. Also, we had some Sound of Music animated adaptation.
To be fair, the lore of Ragnarok Online is far from sunshine and rainbows, but the Animation was simply ridiculous. The low budget's probably to blame for that; the fucker didn't even get a decent animation studio.
In Italy, this was aired 5 episodes at a time. On thursday night, 2 AM. To my knowledge, this is the most fucked up timeslot they ever gave to any anime ever on national TV.
They gave it a pretty kewl opening/ending, tho.
It is implied that the Acolyte/Priestess girl gets raped by her brother near the end of the series. Can't remember if it was direct rape or tentacle rape.
As for calling it rape, she did wanted her brother's D, so maybe it was consensual? Fuck if I remember anon, I watched this shit years ago
The Sound of Music anime was pretty great, I used to watch that. But well, let's put it that way: Time Bokan was so popular that in Yatterman they started making monster of the week based on the postcards from kids in Japan. Also they made several series with variations of the same antagonists, and recently they made remakes/movies.
Aired aloong that Zorro anime.
Both were damn cool as far as I can remember.
Record was fucking awesome back then. Aired Dinosaucers and Sharivan too.
What was the name of the girl with the big tits? I remember the show and especially this episode where gulliver hit his face with her boobs. He was fighting this kind of humanoid horse guy
If we're talking about the same Record, didn't they also air a few of Tezuka's least-known anime series too? I think they also tried their hand at the live-action Giant Robo series too.
Not exactly obscure, but very few people actually know this aired in Mexishitstan. They aired it on the last chanel you'd think would air chinese cartoons, at like 3-4 in the morning on saturdays/sundays. It was as if the broadcaster got the rights for this but didn't really wanted to show it so they gave it the worst shift they could find and forgot about it.
It's particularly weird because usually anime here is a daily thing (at least on weekdays), so it was very unusual to have 5 episodes on a single day... and at 2 AM. For something that they probably spent good money on, localizing, dubbing, censoring, and recording a song.

>Eiichiro Oda at the bottom
Anyways, at least you have a quota on children's television. Down here there's nothing like that anymore.
If it's the Brazilian TV station owned by Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, yup.
They aired a fuckton old anime in the 70's/80's.
Also, Ultraman Tiga and this.
And a certain Pokemon you might've heard about
I don't know, she seems to have been beaten up more than gangraped, but I'm just dense that way. It just seems like her pants were the same between each scene.
Xration doujin when?
>Obscure anime that aired in your country.
>Bonus points if it became a cult hit.
I think I've got the winner for this thread:
Urotsukidoji and La Blue Girl.
Can't post a related image on a christian imageboard.
Suddenly I remember that ludicrous theme sung by Eliana.
I also heard they aired Sailor Moon, and that Eliana also recorded a ridiculous song for it, but never caught on and was put off the air a little time later. Is that true?
I also heard they were airing it when 9/11 happened.
For a while, I thought the character design was made by the same guy who did it for Final Fantasy Tactics, solely because no noses.
Also, it's essentially pod-racing. It sucked.
I remembered when I was in the 4th grade, I had a weird classmate who was addicted to the show along with his older brother. One time, the two of them went to the school waterfall/fountain and tried to catch the fish there with their makeshift rods (twigs+nylon strings+bait?) They got reprimanded for their shit or something.
I liked it, but now I don't remember shit besides the fact that the pink haired girl that was MC's friend was actually supposed to be the magical girl and then she becomes evil for one or two episodes.
>tfw your waifu's show doesn't have an English sub available for download
They had to censor so much shit for years because of 9/11.
>air that on 9/11
>air a Chavo episode when announcing the death of Chespirito
>tfw Silvio Santos will die in our lifetime, it will be announced one way or another and that will be the end of SBT
I think I watched this on Locomotion.
Locomotion had aired a shitton of anime that I don't remeber shit, like Blue Seed, Boogiepop Phantom etc.
It was where I watched Cowboy Bebop and Eva for the first time too.
Sanpei is an incredibly interesting show for being something incredibly slow about one of the most incredibly dull activities on earth, all the while keeping it relatively realistic. You really learned a lot about all kinds of fishing, too.
Also, if you consider old series obscure enough, a lot of old folks remember things like Fantomas, Groizer X and 8 Man which aired in Brazil in the 70's/80's. My old man himself is a fan of them three.
Fantomas actually got a DVD release a couple years ago.
Ogon Bat best superhero. He's a golden skelly with a creepy laugh that everyone thinks is a bad guy because honestly, he's a golden skelly with a creepy laugh, fighting a guy with 4 eyes, each colored differently.
Have some nostalgia.
Notable for having two tomboys in the show. But, Yoko is still top tomboy.
I wonder how most of the lines would sound:
>RECHAZO MI HUMANIDAD, JOJO!
>INCLUSO SPEEDWAGON ESTÁ ASUSTADO!
>ESTE ES EL PODER DEL JAMÓN!
>TU PRIMER BESO NO FUE CON JOJO, SINO CONMIGO! DIO!
>INUTILINUTILINUTILINUTILINUTIL! EL MUNDO!
En este momento estoy viendo varios de los animus de mi niñez e infancia con el doblaje latino.
Son tan tan espantosos casi todos.
Por lo menos no hacen como los ingleses que también los censuran.
Brazil was also great when it comes to the /m/ side. Not so great as France or motherfucking Italy with all the Dynamic Pro stuff, but we had lots of complete series released in VHS (such as Voltes V and Albegas). One of the most beloved was Dorvack, which's so obscure that even /m/ doesn't know it exists.
Also, due to contractual limbo, Brazil was probably the only place in the world where Macross AND Robotech aired.
At the same time.
It aired 15 years ago in my country. Very fucking early in the morning. I don't know why but I liked this shit a lot.
>there's not a single anime on air nowadays.
The kids will never know better.
I only saw one episode of Basilisk and it contained a graphic rape scene.
Sometimes I turn on the TV and notice how some shows got a dub, even when I had never heard of such a thing.
Fucking HEROMAN, of all the shows in the world, got a latin-american dub. What were they thinking? There's also Pretty Cure, Detective Conan (from when Haibara appears), Toriko, Inazuma Eleven (known as "Los Super Once") and Eyeshield 21.
>We'll never hear dubbed Ginko ever again
First time l liked a dub.
I don't think they'd change the names of the Stands or the attacks, considering they were in English in the first place. It's how they didn't change Genki Dama to Bola de Energía or something like that (at least not outside Spain).
Then again, copyright.
I had already seen CCS when this aired and I could only think of how terrible this show is in comparison.
Late 80's to middle 90's were the most glorious time. Lots of VHS releases, almost all T stations aired anume at some point (even SBT had Rayearth and Dragon Ball on Saturday mornings)... Late 90's and early 00's were ok but suffered from too much Pokemon and DBZ. Kids from those years know shit about anime.
We're probably the last generation of Brazilian broadcast anime fans.
Since the fans only learn about it from internet, it's likely that Brazilian anime fans will be incredibly rare in the future.
For a great joy everywhere else.
Why was there such an explosion of anime in the 80s and 90s in Latin America only to disappear by the late 00s?
I don't really watch any children's channels but I have never seen any anime except maybe some old ones but really late at night.
Left one was my second waifu ever (first was ccs).
Don't you mean endless reruns of Gad Guard?
Couldn't find any decent pictures, but here's the original toonami ad:
I still don't know anyone aside from myself who watched the micro series.
I think the biggest reason is because of the piracy.
I'm not really sure everywhere else, but the number of people that watched anime rose on the 00s here when people started to watch shit like Naruto and Bleach pirated.
It also rose the sales for manga though.
I think it have
we dubs anime ourselves after we got the license from distributor and it's for tv only (unlike in the US, you can't buy it in DVD form)
I am not sure, but i think the raw material is from English dub/sub, because Japs Translator is so few here and it'll be pain in the neck to translate anime directly from Japanese language...
Fox Kids Mexico
I think this was Magic Kids from Argentina, we had it here in Mexico via Cable
Canal 22 (Culture Channel)
Azteca 7? The same channel with the Caballeros del Zodiaco and Sailor Moon
Canal 5. I remember only the girl because of the tits.
Pic related, it was on Unicable
Maybe some people here won´t believe it, but in Brazil a long time ago (1997) there was a TV show named US Manga aka US Manga Corps do Brasil whose mascot character was none other than MD Geirst. It aired:
Art of Fighting
Fatal Fury Specials
Fatal Fury - The Motion Picture
Lots of Japanese descendants. They'd bring OVAs and full series directly for home video market.
Toku and sentai were very strong for the same reason (at least in Brazil). After the Saint Seiya boom (which was the first anime explosion in the 90s) the market got saturated. After Pokemon and DBZ the medium got "overexposed", lots of sensasionalist media relating anime to the devil and stuff, and people got too much concerned about violence. It died out slowly. Ironically, when we got our first anime-only channel (Animax), things already had went to shit.
Growing up as a kid in the late 80s in germany
Awesome shows, only aired once before disappearing into licensing limbo.
For the longest time I kept wondering if I just imagined then, but then I got internet and discovered they were infact real.
There was this one anime series that I used to watch with my younger cousins back when I lived in south america.
It had to do with a group of kids whose spaceship crashes on an unexplored island so they set about collecting materials and exploring and shit and all that stuff.
The planet is tropical and has a ton of giant beasts and strange creatures.
I've looked for it over the past few years but I can't pin it down.
Did anyone else watch it as well?
They had a lot of problems such as abusing the same VAs for ALL the series and some horrible titles like Genma Wars filling timeslots. Worst part is that most of the shit series are available on Netflix now while good stuff like dubbed Galaxy Angel, Gankustsuou, Twin Spica, Last Exile and Twelve Kingdoms are lost forever.
And when I think about it, Animax was fucking awesome.
Can you believe that? It aired until the last episode though, with a lot of censorship of course...
even we are the biggest moslem country in the world, we are not like what you think... Indonesian tends more secular in their daily lives and our TV stations are fucked up
Is really hard to find it cause there used to be a video game about the shows before the show and links can be misleading. I used to watch it on youtube but they got deleted and it was like 20 episodes in spanish.
Aside from that christian anime where those two kids go back in time, I remember watching Iria, Tekkaman and 3x3 eyes on the action channel.
Tekkaman isn't obscure, but I hardly see anyone talk about Iria or 3x3 eyes in America.
>implying /a/'s favorite anime is not Boku no Kiko
It was damn great.
Used to watch it with my mother
I remember this soccer anime where everyone had signature kicks and stuff. Like the MC had a fire dragon kick that he would use, and the team was made up of misfits. One of the arcs involved them playing a bunch of ogre-like people on a crystal field, while floating in midair.
I spent hours trying to track down that series to no avail because of a lack of a name. I'm pretty convinced that it may have been a fever dream all along.
Pic sorta related, it's what it reminded me of, only a whole lot more supernatural and action packed.
To be able to watch what you want, when you want to and with the language you prefer must be great. With the internet of those days it would have been hell.
But there was something special with waiting for saturday morning to watch your favourite chinsese cartoon.
>You will never wake up on a saturday morning and immediately run downstairs in your pajamas to watch pokemon/yuyu hakusho/naruto/whatever the fuck you used to watch.
I feel natsukashii.
This shit right here.
>yellow car looking for his parents while smelling flowers to get strong enough to beat the villains
The best episodes were the football episode and the one in which they are warped into another world that wasn't supposed to have any flowers but did anyway for some reason.
>That fucking episode of Koni driving a taxi
That was fucking comedy, dude.
the fucking best
I had mixed feeling with this show:
US Manga was the company distributing these OVAs in US. They just got everything, butchered and aired at inappropriate timeslots in Brazil. If you're lucky, you can find the original VHS releases at old rental stores.
This didn't "air" on TV so it doesn't really count but it is kind of a childhood memory because ADV pushed this OVA really fucking hard. Like, if you had any ADV DVD between like 2000-2004 or something, the ad for this was on it.
It was like my first ecchi and the main girl's dub voice was Rika from Digimon Tamers' so I had a very weird and literal nostalgia boner
It wasn't, at least not in latin america. I remember watching it when I was a kid and sometimes hoping our parents didn't decide to show up at just the wrong moment.
We used to record it on VHS.
I liked the idea a lot. The show was shit though.
There's people that really liked that shit?
I met a guy at a con who said the manga is pretty good tho.
Truly el mejor.
I was thinking about posting this but i could not remember the name at all. All i knew was that it had the 3 ghosts.
All Koni episodes are good.
Save for THAT 3-episode group where they sing and live action shit appears.
Back in the day, there was this summer where my and my little brother loved this show, so my older sister wants to know what the fuck are we about and when she sits to watch it one day, that fucking episode aired.
Two years later(2003 IIRC), she loved it as much as we did and we still quote it from time to time.
