Im a big fan of anime but the only show I am watching right now on Crunchyroll is Lucky Star and I finished Shugo Chara and Full moon (Full moon isn't on CR though)

I like comedy, drama and romance. BUT PLEASE nothing innapropriate or gross I get creeped out...easily
I dont really like the fighting action type series I dont mind if the series is partly action because sometimes its interesting but......yeah
So please reccomend something! :D


You'll probably like Slam Dunk because it has a combination of all those three things. It's mostly one-sided romance though.

Yuru Yuri

Genres that I wish to be recommended: No Yaoi, no Mecha, no Harem and no Sports. Other than that, anything is fair game.

Comments:

I'm currently looking for any info you fine folks might have about good anime series, either here on CR or elsewhere (although anything on CR would be prioritized).

Other than the aforementioned genres that I don't care for, I'm not especially picky. Ecchi and Fanservice are fine as long as there's good plot/comedy to back it up. I also have a huge weakness for well-written Yuri. Shows featuring adult main characters are also a plus.

Also, to any fellow tropers here, I am a massive fan of deconstructionist works.

Thanks in advance for your time and suggestions.

The only recommendation I can think of off the top of my Head is Outlaw Star. It's relatively light-hearted space opera, and an absolute must watch if you're a fan of sci-fi. It also has a rather good English dub, if that sort of thing matters to you.

I know you may have watched this since it's pretty popular, but the only one I can think of that has that 70s-90s artwork is Cowboy Bebop. Actually one of the only old-style anime I'll watch.

Ghost Hound! It's a great psychological anime that I believe is a bit unappreciated. I believe you can still find it on youtube.

@Whoopidoo

I'm a little fuzzy on what deconstructionist means even after looking it up.

If it means.... fight the power, over throw the hierarchy in a literal sense....

"Code Geass" is a clear choice to me. It's about the revolution of Japan against England in a fictional alternate universe where England more or less conquered the majority of the world. Yes, there is some mecha, but it's really not the focus of the show. In terms of anime strategy shows, it's probably closest to Death Note.

Others would be:
Eden of the East
Dance in the Vampire Bund
Gungrave - (the main problem with this anime is that it completely changes towards the end... sorta like Eva, but episodes 2-20 are really good)

If deconstructionist means rethink our society and values...
"Kino's Journey" is a clear and obvious choice. (Unfortunately not on CR)

Others that'd fit into this would be:
"Time of Eve"

Lastly some other recommendations:
- "Dusk Maiden Amnesia" was my favorite show of last season (though it's romance) and it's similar to Mystery GF and Sankarea
- "Samurai Champloo" was done by the same director as Bebop.

I like goofier stuff usually, Saber Marionette is one of my favorite comedy sci-fis, so is Lost Universe. (obscure stuff)

The "deconstruction" I'm talking about is in the definition provided by TVtropes (hence why I aimed that particular statement at fellow tropers)

You can learn more about It here http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Deconstruction

Also, thanks for the suggestions.

I'd say:
- The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (it's weird cause the first thing I noticed about Angel Beats is the main character looks just like Haruhi... you'll probably feel the same reverse)

- Seitokai no Ichizon (student council)

- FLCL


Also, there's a couple of anime about guys trying to make it in a band, if you're into music and that type of anime
Kids on the Slope
Beck: Mongolian Chop Shop

Kino's Journey and Time of Eve are probably the best way to go then.

You might like Trigun too. It's not really apparent at first, but ending does fit into deconstruction. It's also a space western!

Yeah I watched Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya before Angel Beats. I noticed both female main characters look almost identical. I've also seen FLCL and a few episodes of Kids on the Slope but wasn't a big fan. I'm looking for anime that is more like the anime I picked out than the separate genres. But thanks anyways. I'll look up Seitokai no Ichizon.

Air - from KEY, so very similar to Kanon and Clannad

Sankerea - comedy, drama/romance

School Days - extra drama, lots of romance


Hanasaku Iroha - slice of life

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora - drama

Usagi Drop - heart warming slice of life

Toradora! - high school romance, very funny, dramatic

Steins;Gate - sci-fi , thriller, comedy

Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo(Girl who leapt through time) - movie

Oh I see. In that case, I'd say:

- Myself; Yourself
- Dusk Maiden Amnesia
- The Girl Who Leapt through Time (movie)

- Seitokai no Ichizon is definitely good for friendship and comedy, but there isn't really any drama or tragedy.

You might like Eureka Seven as well.
