Americans only get a small taste of what Japan has to offer in the terms of anime. Usually, only the most visually interesting, marketable properties make the cut, leaving the ones that weren't in incredibly high demand in the dust. This, unfortunately, eventually piles up a long list of Japanese-only anime that's never made it to America. Although fandubs and fansubs might be out there, these poor unlicensed series are anime only available in Japan.

Without an English dub, it's up to hardcore otakus to scour out these series, because, without the licensing, there's no way you're going to find these gems anywhere other than conventions or Japanese retailers. For one reason or another, even though these anime are all great titles in their respective forms, they remain hidden as anime only in Japanese.

From magical girls to dark, dystopian themes and teachers with demonic monster arms, feast your eyes on some great, undubbed anime that's buried away in localization limbo.
