Anime Recommendations by Genre

Recommended Posts

I see a lot of genre specific recommendation threads in here, so I wanted to created a master post so people have something to reference. The Anime Approval thread is good in general, but is not divided in any meaningful way, so hopefully this will be of some use and cut down on the repetition.


 


Please submit your recommendations by genre. There's nothing in the spoilers right now, so just list everything you would reasonably recommend.


 


If you think more genres should be added or some of them should be removed, let me know.


 


Once this list is populated with a bunch of titles, this introduction will be rewritten to be shorter, largely by removing the explanation for its existence.

So this thread is effectively dead? Kind of a shame. I just joined Kametsu recently, and the idea of this topic sounds highly promising. Would anyone be willing to restart it? I have a bunch of suggestions on hand for drama and romance shows.
