These two manga series, Beelzebub and Sket Dance, are a bit underrated. I still enjoy them.

Sket Dance - anime and manga ended. No western company has licensed it.

@P3IN:

Same goes for Beelzebub. I want it to be licensed.

@SMXLR8:

Ratings don't matter for me. It's just that folks don't talk about it or not much people know about the shows. That is what makes these series underrated.

You hear folks talking about Attack on Titan, Naruto, the rest of the HST, and more.

@takashichea: they do maybe not hear as much but it is popular

@SMXLR8:

Also, it depends on the size of the fandom and how much merchandising is involved. I'm talking about Anime Vice's community rather than the whole web.

@Destinyheroknight:

I admit I did enjoy Silver Spoon's anime adaptation. Haven't read the manga yet. The anime was too short. Silver Spoon and Sket Dance were my favorite slice of life shows from a Shonen type magazine. I normally don't watch or read slice of life shows.

I can't believe Naruto and the HST are losing to Magi, Silver Spoon, Attack on Titan, and the other series. I should have guess by now since these guys are old and these new guys are out for blood.
