So I'm looking for something cute and happy to get me thru these last weeks of school. I go thru my crunchyroll que and find Madoka Magica. Awesome, Crapsaccharine, bittersweet but now I'm trying to figure out how to run a tabletop RPG of Madoka Magika.

Then I try going for something light hearted and extra cheesy, like a high school romance (School Days)....

Apparently my ability to tell what an anime is like is on hiatus. So can you kind folks please direct me to a show that is legitimately light and happy and cheerful? something without a twist ending or a deconstruction?

I thought it was a pretty good show, too!

It seems a whole lot of people mistake the dislikeable characters and sudden plot/mood twists as unintentional... I liked it for breaking the mould and pushing the boundaries, though a lot of people condemn it for that instead.

Bamboo Blade?
Kimi ni Todoke?

Go watch some Anohana or Clannad Afterstory, I hear that those are cute shows. Or maybe some Neon Genesis Evangelion? Incredibly cheerful.


Seriously, just watch a bunch of slice of life shows. Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou, Nichijou, School Rumble or shows like FMP:Fumoffu?! and Carnival Phantasm, if you happen to be familiar with some other material, are some series I'd highly recommend in that regard. Those aren't all that cute though. If you're looking for something cutesy you can't go wrong with the previously mentioned Girls und Panzer or the king of cute himself: K-On!.

Asharka ^ gave the best recommendations.
I'd also recommend Love Lab.

Oh, and Sakura Trick.
Refreshing indeed ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Light-hearted and cheerful, eh?

All of these are in the romance category:

- Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions
- Toradora
- Kimi ni Todoke
- Haganai
- Hanasaku Iroha
- Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu (make sure to watch the "Finale" OVAs, which aren't on CR)

There is also the ongoing:
- My Love Story (the best show that's come out in awhile)
- I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying (short form, currently in Season 2)

Or if you don't want romance with your light-hearted feel-good story, then try:
- Usagi Drop
- Barakamon
- The Eccentric Family
