The 2010s have been an incredible decade for anime, with each year bringing so many smash hits that it's hard to keep track. While popular shows like My Hero Academia, Attack on Titan, The Promised Neverland, Fruits Basket, and The Rising of the Shield Hero have brought the anime community together with incredible moments that we can all appreciate, it's also worth checking out some of the underrated 2010s anime that the decade has to offer. 

One great example is Kyousou Giga, a surreal anime about a young girl who shakes up the lives of the residents of a paper town. There's also Beautiful Bones -Sakurako's Investigation-, an anime about an osteologist who solves crimes using bone samples.
