List RulesVote up the most underrated anime shows from the '90s that are definitely worth watching.

There's not enough love for the classic old school anime shows, let alone the underrated ones. There are plenty of hidden gems among the various anime series produced before the 2000s that definitely don't get enough attention. Japanese animation during the '90s delivered some of the best and imaginative series ever released - not to mention some of the funniest. Some of the '90s anime listed here continue to influence the industry well into the 21st century. 

Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon may have been the face of '90s anime when they premiered on Cartoon Network, but they weren't the only series worthy of praise. There are '90s anime series out there that defied traditional gender roles and raised the bar on risqué comedy. Here are some overlooked anime series from 1990 to 1999 that are well worth your time. Vote up great, underappreciated '90s anime shows that you would strongly recommend to a friend.
