So, I have a request for help form the fine folks at crunchyroll. It's a simple request but, when discussing it with my friends, we came to the realization that we couldn't really think of all that many examples.

The request is simple, I'm looking for any show that A: Doesn't have a Teenage Male Protagonist, and B: Doesn't take place in a highschool (unless the main characters were teachers, or something like that.) or some obvious substitution thereof (space academy, psychic power awesomeness control school etc.)

That's all. A third, less important request is that the anime in question be finished (ie not mid-season, or between seasons) but I'll still gladly take recommendations to put on my list. I don't even care that much about genre, I'm willing to try pretty much anything at this point. My only blacklists for genre are Yaoi, Sports and Harem.

Just for posterity, here are some shows I've already seen that match this criteria.

Black Lagoon
Cowboy Beebob
Paranoia Agent
Usagi Drop
Death Note
Outlaw Star
Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei (boarderline)
Trigun
Blue Submarine No. 6

Thanks in advance for your help.

Fate/Zero
Psycho Pass

Oh and since your only blacklist is yaoi, harem, sports... there's Madoka Magica. The characters aren't teenage male. And also while they do go to school(they are students after all) the school parts in PMMM are quite short and most of the story happens outside school.

These are the most recent ones that comes to my mind immediately.

Hello everyone! I'm knew to Crunchyroll's forum but not new to the site!

I have a little dilemma if you wish to call it that. I just finished No. 6 and it is hands down one of my favorite anime of all time although it is only 11 episodes. Which I feel it needed 2-3 more episodes. But damn the story is so amazing and so is the emotion that the anime brings. It really gets you thinking and in a way seems so real.

My question is.. Are there anime that are similar to No. 6.

I love anime that have that level of emotion and get you thinking and get your feels going.

Thanks,
Zach

Unfortunately I've never watched No. 6 so I can't really assess this accurately but if you want something short that has a lot of thought provoking themes and can invoke a lot of emotions then there's Madoka Magica.

Madoka Magica is a 12 episode mahou shoujo anime that's more serious than other mahou shoujo shows. If you give this a try this is my only advise for this anime: Do not judge a book by it's cover.

Looking for new series to watch (so much free time I actually finished up my lists I had backlogged).

It'd be too long of a list to write down everything I have seen so I will just go for recommendations from anyone and look them up and try em out to see how I like them.

Best bet I guess would be something Slice of Life, Romance, and/or Comedy. I don't mind if it has Ecchi/Fanservice in it. I don't care if it is a Harem in fact if it's good that could be a plus. I like when Slice of Lifes/Romances have some comedy in it as well, but it is not necessary I suppose.

I don't mind if there is fighting in it, so long as it is not some Shonen-esque Naruto/One Piece type fighting every episode...


I'm also willing to try some new stuff, for example...

I have not seen many, if any really, Psychological or Horror series, don't know if it's cause I am not a big fan of Horror movies, or just have not actively sought out these genres but I just have not seen many.

I guess a way to say this would be Philosophical? If there really is anything like that out there.

Fantasy. I have not really seen a lot of Fantasy series either. Think SAO or Log Horizon, but its not them trapped in a game, its the world they live in or whatever... Like... first one off top of my head is Tower of Druaga.

Thanks in advance for any answers guys and gals!

Looking for an anime that is

1) Music based
2) NOT slice of life, I like a bit of fantasy. Ordinary life sucks, I want to be taken away by a story.
3) Mecha a HUGE plus

Basically looking for something like Macross (seen every one over and over) or AKB0048

Well if you're asking for a romance/comedy that is harem like try Tenchi Muyo GXP or the original Tenchi Muyo OAVs. Another one that is a classic and is good is Love Hina.
