The girls in this show certainly count. And the guys are hilarious. Every character is great! But Yakumo has to be the crown jewel...

-yakumo snip-

A friend once described the moral of this show: Love turns you into an idiot, and it's even worse when you're already an idiot in he first place.

Honestly one of the best romcoms around! One of my all time favourites, the manga is pretty good too.

Sadly it's pretty underrated. I wanted to buy a figurine of one of the School Rumble girls while in Japan, but even though I went to several mals and looked around for hours I couldn't find a single one! Had to settle for CC in beachwear. :'(

EDIT: Eri >>>>> Yakumo

Ahh, I see you're a man of taste as well.

That show was positively brimming with wit and sheer charm. My memories of it are hazy fragments at best, but I remember it fondly for having watched it with my mom some six years ago. Those were carefree days. Good days.

Started watching Yuru CampΔ recently. Cute girls doing cute shit shows are usually not really up my alley, but with this show it's different.

It's as if someone had turned up the comfyness meter to heights I hadn't known existed. It's pure destilled fluff and cuteness.

Nothing ever happens but I can't stop watching.

Halp.

Finished Full Metal Panic, as well as Fumoffu and The Second Raid. Pretty decent stuff overall, though I thought the high school comedy sections were a lot more engaging than the mecha action and in that way it was oddly balanced.

It's rare for me to like the gaijin character best but Tessa is such a cutie!

What should I watch next? First reply decides.

Queen's Blade
Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!
Strike Witches
Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei
Girls und Panzer

Tough call. From that list I think KonoSuba and Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei are objectively "better" animes than the rest. But for nostalgia's sake, I'd recommend Strike Witches. (I really liked it back when I was 15. Not sure if it holds up, though.)

Alright, I'll try it soon! I'm not picky. I'll probably watch all of those soon anyway.

Do these include shows you've watched before? If not, I'm a little shocked you haven't seen Zetsubou-sensei. It's something that's perfectly up your alley.

I haven't which is why it's on there for a reason!
Maybe that next, but a promise is a promise so I'll watch Strike Witches first. As usual there's a good mix of ecchi shlock and "serious" anime in my to-watch list, as I feel the need to represent my two loves...
(I usually pick what to watch by how many figures there are of what I want... I am truly irredeemable)

Dream Hunter Rem. It's a shame I've neglected the 80s animes so much!

Why did I put off watching this for so long?

(Strike Witches was very fun escapism, thank you mnl)

I am now watching Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei as promised and it's pretty wonderful. Though sometimes it moves so fast that I don't feel I'm getting all the humor. Oh well, that just means I can watch it again and enjoy it even more.

I don't think the story, characters, etc. are the pinnacle of KyoAni quality, but Hibike! Euphonium is definitely one of the prettiest anime I've seen... maybe ever.

[Image: 68747470733a2f2f692e696d6775722e636f6d2f...512e706e67]

I'm often the kind of person who prizes the distinctiveness, expressiveness, and cuteness of art in anime over its technical prowess, but luckily Hibike! Euphonium excels at all of those. The story isn't immediately grabbing me as hard but I'm having a great time with it regardless.

I can agree with that, I absolutely loved Hibike Euphonium to bits, it has one of the best... everything I've seen in anime so far.

I'm currently watching Youjo Senki, and I've finished Tamako Love Story and Tamako Market before it.

I enjoyed both of the Tamako anime a ton, they have such a great OST as well, I couldn't stop listening to it for the following few days.

K-On is my life force.

You should definitely give Violet Evergarden a shot. The detail in that anime is crazy.

I watched Love Live. It was okay; I like to have something to talk about with entry-level otaku whether I feel it super deeply or not. Guess who my favorite character was?

I ought to give that a shot. The OP is jamming and I really dig the aesthetic.

I watched Hells, the beginning was really fun to watch. Otherwise, i've been reading manga. I feel I can read faster than a show plays

Lewd. Let me tell you  much I've come to lewd since I began to live. There are 37.2 trillion cells that fill my body. If the word “lewd” was engraved on each nanoangstrom of those thousands of millions of cells it would not equal one one-billionth of the lewd I feel for [REDACTED] at this micro-instant. Lewd! Lewd!

Haha. That reminds me, my computers teacher in high school was obsessed with that show when she was a kid. This one time late in the year, she even showed off her old toys and part of the Sailor Scout outfit she wore on Halloween. :D

Just finished Hakumei to Mikochi, an adorable but surprisingly realistic animu about two titular inchlings, the adventures they find themselves in, the dishes they cook...
