Opinion: This anime was completely hilarious and I watched it all in one sitting. It takes the normal stereotypes and flips them on their heads. The characters are so well thought out, even with the way they interact with each other and their emotions towards many things in life. I really love this anime.

Recommendations(From left to right)
One Punch Man: Both are adaptations of web comics by ONE. Absolutely hilarious and uses stereotypes, but this time to the extreme. Second season has just been announced, so get ready!
High school of the Dead: Also using extremes of stereotypes, this anime features à group of teenagers fighting off à zombie apocalypse together with a teacher. It has lots of fight scenes and weaponry to show off the amazing animation, as well as lots of innuendos and comedy.
Kotoura-San: Although this anime has à very different art style and less fight scenes, it also faces the issues of Psychics and their relationships with family and friends. Kotoura is also quite young and just trying to be normal, like Mob. Be warned: This anime looks cute, but starts off very dark. You’ll be crying at the first episode

Opinion: This anime is super cute! Along with the adorable art style, this anime is all about food that will get you inspired to get in the kitchen. It also shows the values of family and relationships and has some unexpected characters and friendships that may not be seen in most other anime.

Recommendations(From left to right)
Himouto! Umaru-chan: Both animes have à strong sense of family and talk about food à lot. They also introduce lots of other characters in similar ways.
Kaichou wa Maid-Sama: This anime is à romance anime that also uses the chibi art style in parts. It shows à sense of relationships and family as the characters overcome many different obstacles.

Opinion: This anime has an absolutely gorgeous art style, especially in the background and scenery. However, this is à very emotional anime and had me in tears. Even though it is quite short, it displays several different relationships and unrequited love that is never resolved. The soundtrack to this anime is also beautiful and I had to get the sheet music to most of it, since it’s all played by piano, besides one guitar piece. These things all contribute to an amazing anime, pulling you in and messing up all your feelings. I loved it!

Recommendations(From left to right)
Clannad: Both anime are very romantic and have similar ongoing themes. The art styles are quite different, but also similar in some ways, as the anime are set in similar locations and feature similar backgrounds, particularly the cherry blossoms that are seen as prominent in both anime.
Only Yesterday: Although not about romance, this movie is also about real life experiences and the way people think about things. It develops on ideas about youth and adulthood, much like 5 cm per Second.

Opinion: I am in love with this anime. It has just the right amount of comedy and romance so that it’s not trying too hard. Plus, it explores school life in a whole new way. The balance of characters and how they react to explicit conversations is not only amusing, but very clever. The subtitles make it appear to have quite bad writing, and I’m not sure how the dub is with this too, but overall, it’s hilarious and and makes me determined to watch more awesome anime!

Recommendations: (From left to right)
KissXSis: Both anime have the theme of trying to achieve sex with à certain person come across in à really good way, and even though the theme is explicit, it isn’t too prominent.
Ah! My Goddess: Similar to B Gata H Kei, Ah! My Godess shows the idea of sex and explicit behaviour and uses family, in the form of Belldandy’s sisters. Both involve the idea of gods and power to achieve what you want. 
Panty and Stocking With Garterbelt: The goal is the same between Panty and Yamada, only Panty is more ambitious. She has people around her to help her out, like Yamada has her friends and sisters. And they both have multiple art styles!
Kaichou wa Maid-sama!: These anime both have the key of using both comedy and romance to the right amount so they don’t get overly cringey and lovey-dovey or boring. And they both have multiple art styles!
