Hello fellow otakus

Recommended Posts

I am new to forums and don't know where to start. I actually never considered them until watching Oreimo (...yeah...did not expect it to really go so far...) and was like, "Are there really online communities of anime fans like that?"

I like rom-coms, comedies, fantasy and scifi, and while I steer clear of straight adult anime I don't mind ecchi for laughs. Where do I go  from here?

Hey welcome! I take it you fancy more light-hearted or slice of life rom-com type anime? You might check out Love Com, Netjuu Susume is also really good. If you like cute animals in the sanrio universe Aggretsuko is surprisingly relatable and seems to fit the rom-com genre pretty well. Fruits Basket is heart warming and grounded, though there are some very serious themes it explores but definitely worth giving a watch if you haven't before.

+1 for this. While there certainly is humor in the Fruits Basket remake, I find it too dramatic to really consider a romcom, but highly recommended for a series that will repeatedly hit you in the feelz (ReLife is along the same lines, just make sure to watch the OVA episodes too in order to get the happy ending). And since you don’t mind ecchi played for laughs I would recommend Don’t Toy With Me Miss Nagatoro (it also winds up being much more heartwarming than the 1st ep would lead you to believe).  I saw Aho Girl listed on your profile page so I would recommend Girlfriend Girlfriend • Hinamatsuri • Chio’s School Road • Asobi Asobase • School Rumble. I also noticed that you’re into VG development so you might enjoy New Game (SoL/CGDCT). For fantasy I’ll recommend Magic Knight Rayearth for an old school favorite & Mushoku Tensei for something more recent. And finally for scifi I would recommend the StarBlazers (Space Battleship Yamato) remakes.

I have watched "Don't Toy with me Miss Nagatoro" and thought it was awesome!!! "School Rumble" was one of favorite anime's and one of the first to get me into Rom Coms. Then I watched "Chobits" and liked that as well. Comedies are the best but I hate it when you watch a comedy that turns into a drama like "Shuffle" :S
