There have been countless anime that have had the characters in high school. I realise why they do this but have there been any (good) anime that have been set in a university environment (or at least where the characters attend university)? There's probably something really obvious that I'm forgetting but I can't think of one.

Death Note would count, it starts in his last year of high school and the rest is while he's in college.

Hey thanks guys, it's been a while since high school (or secondary school, as I'm British) so I felt like a change.

Itazura na Kiss, it's a romance that starts at 2nd or 3rd year of highschool(?)--->university---->workplace. It's only 25 episodes, and it makes the jump to university like 1/3 through.

I'm not a big fan of White Album but the other four are pretty good for a watch.

Also, can't wait for Genshiken new season this summer.

I know that at least 6 of those take place in High School.


I could list off a few more titles from the ones already mentioned. But remembering Japanese names off hand can be a pain.

Honestly I don't love a lot of anime that takes place in college. My favorite though is probably Nodame Cantabile.

I merely glanced at the thread before posting, but just realized what it mentioned. But oh well, they're the only ones school related I've watched, so I'll still give my two cents.
