*unimportant (my reason, skip this paragraph if you’d like)** I am looking for some Manga and Light Novels to read i love watching anime so i thought that i should start reading some Mangas and Light Novels because as much as i enjoy anime i may enjoy some books too. I also want to write my own Light Novel, i enjoy writing and like the idea of maybe having my own anime one day... of course this dream is out of reach by far but i want to read some Mangas and Light Novels to have a better understanding of how to write a proper Light Novel.

I’ll name some of my favorite Animes and maybe you can give me recommendations based on them?

Class Room of The Elite, DanMachi, The Pet Girl of sakurasou, New Game, I un ironically enjoyed SAO, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Gamers, i loved Mmo Junkies, Toradora, Space Patrol Luluco, Hinako Note, Aldnoah Zero, and Ai-Mai-Mi

These are just a few but i enjoy all genres so i’ll take recommendations that are unrelated to my short list of anime too.

*important* id like to steer away from to much echhi and fan service stuff, im not a fan of the oversexualized stuff although sometimes ill sit through it for a good anime. Id just like a warning if you recommendations has this please.
I am also open to dounijinshi and self published works, id actually would love to read some, i also enjoy 4/6 panel manga like space patrol luluco. I am willing to pay for said books if they catch my intrest or if i can read them on some reader like the one Crunchyroll has for manga would be nice too.

Sorry for writing so much. Thanks.

Light Novels:
--------------
The Toradora and SAO light novels both give more depth and character development than the animes--and the ending of the Toradora LN is way better.

Spice and Wolf is an incredible novel series: smart, great dialogue, great characters.


Manga:
-----------
My favorites include:
Ah My Goddess -- drama, romance, comedy, even some action and racing later on
Angel Densetsu -- comedy with some romance and fist-fighting
SA: Special A -- straight shoujo rom-com
Uwagaki -- shounen romance with a sci-fi twist
Change 123 (ecchi--no sex but lots of nudity) -- shounen romance mixed with violent martial arts and slapstick comedy

Otherwise:
If you want more school-aged, slow developing romance (Toradora, Pet Girl), try:
Maid-Sama
Taiyou no Ie
Koi Dano Ai Dano
Kyou, Koi wo Hamimemasu
Mysterious Girlfriend X (some occasional nudity and panty shots, although the premise is... bizarre) -- On CR
Jitsu wa Watashi Wa -- on CR
Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches (ecchi--panty shots, mostly) -- on CR
