I just started watching Watamote and it's kind of hard to watch since it reminds me of when I was a loner in high school.

Also, Say "I Love You" is really painful to watch since Mei's personality is so similar to mine (more exaggerated. but still...) it's scary. The faults in her relationship with Yamato are so relatable to me. It's like a glaring mirror to how terrible I am with relationships. Then, seeing their happy moments makes me sad as it stirs those stupid what-if thoughts.

Yep same here for both. Just finished Watamote I laughed and cringed and cried a lot but it was a good series I wish there was more of it

Makoto Shinkai is a terrible person! Seriously though, I can't watch anything he does unless I want to get serious about killing myself. 5 Centimeters per Second hits me hard just thinking about it. I can't imagine any circumstance where I'd watch it again, and it's been 5 years

This is a more obscure/individual thing, but Your Lie in April really rips open some long-ago scars. I play piano too, and even though I'm not at all a prodigy, some things in that anime really hit home.

Agreed on this one. Once I figured out the feels were coming on, I investigated the manga. Without spoiling anything, I hope, I dropped the anime. It's awesome, but I just wasn't going to invest the time for the ending that is coming.

Anime with a strong family theme. Some that come to mind would be Kyousougiga, Summer Wars, and Wolf Children.

Just as a musician and a lover of classical music, Your Lie in April really gets me going sometime (not to mention my original post lol)

It was definitely Lovely Complex. Even though I have never like a guy a lot shorter than me what really got me was her insecurities. Risa is very tall compared to her friends and everything she experiences with her height is how I felt especially at the time I watched it (Freshman year.) Even now I get insecure about my height. Like I don't think I have ever cried and felt so much for a character. It was hard because not only do I not fit clothes, can never find you shoe size and I always though I could never be cute. I thought you had to be small to be cute. So I dressed in basketball shorts and baggy t-shirts because I'm tall and should be sporty. Lovely complex was what made me feel better (that and sailor moon) in high school. But now I'm KAWAIIER THAT EVER AND NO ONE WILL STOP ME FROM BEING TALL AND CUTE

OMG I love Lovely Complex. I'm not super short, but I'm 5'8", so I'm not the tallest guy. I definitely have had crushes on girls taller than me, and I feel your post matches the opposite spectrum of my own attachment to this anime. Your insecurities touch base with feminine expectations; whereas my own failed to meet the masculine qualities. It's really cool to get a girl's input on this subject matter, it really makes me think about societal obligational projections. Btw, you are super cute, just sayin'

Omg thank you but I think it's more interesting the other way around since this anime is a shoujo!

Blue Spring Ride. Because Futaba couldn't be herself and she acted like that just to keep the friends that she had in the beginning. They were not good friends. I don't have good experiences from friends and struggle to open up to people. And Kou also had trouble opening up. Both main characters seemed relatable to me. I kind of felt like I wanted to cry a little when I saw this anime.
