Hi everybody. I don't know how many of my friends here watch anime (a lot, I suspect, and I suspect most of you know way more about it than me, as I don't watch it that much).

I was trying to watch the latest episode of Super Lovers on Crunchyroll and found out I'd already watched it (D'oh!), so I looked for something else that wouldn't tax my brain (I have stalled out watching both Kuroko no Basuke and Haikyuu for reasons unfathomable to me or anyone else), and I found this 12-episode anime called Tanaka-kun is Listless. I watched the first two episodes, and it's sooooooo cuuuuuute! Not BL, but you can ship at free will LOL So that's my recommendation. Feel free to give me yours!

PS it's a high school story about a boy who is always sleepy and his friends, who are just adorable.

Yes,kudos. I watch Tanaka kun also. The anime were very refreshing and make me listless too 😁. I'm not so called avid anime watcher as not all genre I watched. But, I can recommend you to give it a try for Flying Witch and Shounen Maid. For me personally, it sort of slice of life I think and different style from any previous anime I watched before.

Thank you for the recommendation! I'll keep an eye out for those two!

I really identify with Tanaka-kun, as I sometimes get very sleepy at work. I love how he turns being sleepy into an art! :D

If you haven't watched Barakamon, I highly recommend it. The spin-off Handa-kun also starts this season.

I haven't! I haven't even heard of it (because I'm not very up on anything much! LOL Not even BL...I'm pathetic...) Thank you for the recommendation! It would be exciting to follow another new anime as it rolls out...

Hmm, I should screen that series too. I heavily watch anime, nearly every night! But sadly I cannot remember anything with my fading memory problem (a real bad problem..). Well, I watch whatever my hubby collects, so they end up being Harem style, which I don't like much. But once in a while, there are real gems as well: Angel Beats!, Macross Frontier, Aldnoah Zero, and so many others that I cannot remember! :*) Really, I just don't remember the titles.. xD

I am right with you on the memory thing. It's scary! And titles? Forget it!

Angel Beats has an awesome opening theme. I should try it!

I really liked Tanaka-kun too! My fav this past season was Joker Game (individual history/spy stories, really good animation). Flying Witch was also surprisingly good. Very calming!

Who'd think a flying witch would be calming? Oh I've seen ads for Joker Game! Thanks for the recs!

Thanks for the reccomendation:) I´m currently re-watching Haikyuu and want to start with Super Lovers. Only recently I discovered Bakuman (a friend reccomended it) so I´m watching it too. And if you haven´t seen Sakamoto desuka, try it. It´s really funny.

I found the Bakuman manga to be more enjoyable than the anime. I only ever ending up watching the first season. The live-action movie, which recently came out, is supposed to be really good to.

Tanaka-kun is so cute, I need to finish watching it!

There's this adorable cat anime called Chi's sweet home about this kitten that gets lost and causes mischief in her new home. I also really enjoy Natsume Yuujinchou. Gekkan shoujo, Nozaki-kun is really funny/cute.

Whoever recommended Barakamon earlier, I second that :)

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu was another really good show, from the winter 2016 season.

Just today discovered that Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu has gotten an anime, episode 1 just now. I´m definitely giving it a shot.

Thank you for the rec! I will give it a try right after I finish those 366 episodes of Bleach. I know I know it's old, but I skipped that one BECAUSE of those 366 episodes... what can you possibly stretch like this, right? I should have never started. Now I must know how it ends lol Besides, I would watch just for the sake of seeing Renji getting nursed back to health which happens veeeery often.:D Yep, I am that shallow :P

PS Oh, I forgot to rec my fav from the past few years. No
BL at all but it's good: Death Parade... Suggestion: prepare Kleenex

Haha! Thanks for the suggestion! Awesome!

OMG Bleach. I don't have the fortitude. I don't even have the fortitude to finish Naruto Shippuuden, which I watched so much of...

Hehe, it was love at first site for me too. XD How he always sees himself that he can't live without Ohta is actually more straightforward than some BL. XD

I saw others recommending Barakamon, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun and Shounen Maid - I'd join them. Both are light, cute and fluffy, perfect stories to get rid of the daily stress. :)

Tanaka-kun is Listless is awesome, and so shippy XD

I also second Flying Witch, Sakamoto Desu ka, Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, and definitely Barakamon!

There's also Kuma Miko, which is about a young miko at a shrine dedicated to a talking bear XD

For an older series, if you want something gritty, try Gangsta, or Death Parade is on the dark side too.

Bungou Stray Dogs and Kekkai Sensen are good if you like action with supernatural elements and a bit of comedy, and also Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu Love! if you want a boys version of sailor moon (with a cute, pink, alien wombat mascot XD).

Silver Spoon is also good, from the manga-ka who wrote Fullmetal Alchemist, and for something a bit quirky, Moyashimon.

I know right? I've done that twice now. I think there is going to be another season.
