Yeah so I've been trying to watch more anime lately, and I've wanted to watch the so called "must watches", so last month I watched Evangelion and its movies, and this past week I watched Attack on Titan, both of which, while good, are very emotionally taxing shows.

 

So now I'm looking for some lighthearted shows to watch.

 

My friend suggested Tsuritama, the "fishing" anime I guess it's known as and it's pretty good but it's only half a season so I'll be finished soon. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Prince of Tennis is probably pretty light.

 

Tenchi Universe is funny as hell.

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt Cuz fuck the world, let's fuck and eat cake and kill shit. It was one of Gainax's goofy projects, like Fooly Cooly, which I think you've said you've seen.

 

I'd suggest stupid comedy harem. Sakura no Pet girl, Boku Wa, that sort of thing. Oh, the cafe show from last season, Is the Order a Rabbit is fucking adorable. Cute girls doing cute things. No sex, no violence, no squids. Cute girls, fuzzy rabbits, and coffee.

 

 

This is best girl and Japanese girl doing their English homework with poor rabbit girl.

Sympa, a tennis show! My boyfriend taught me how to play tennis this summer, that sounds perfect, haha.

 

Danico, omg the characters look adorable. Is this one of those shows you have to pause and roll around for a moment because it's just too cute?

 

I liked FLCL, but I tried Panty and Stocking when it first came out and I wasn't a huge fan of the first episode. I've changed a lot since I first watched it, maybe I'll try it again.

Yup. This. 100%. Also, there's a show this season I forgot about until the new episode came on last night,Futsu no Locoidol? Something like that. Google that. It's about a girl who become the local idol of her town with her busty friend (no ecchi) and a genkai girl in a mascot suit. Super cute.

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club is definitely mainstream and many consider it a must-watch anime, it's very lighthearted and I enjoyed watching it a lot.

If you're sick of sports anime after Prince of Tennis then Non Non Biyori is a great option. It's very very cute and relaxed, and it's my number one thing to watch whenever I'm in a bad mood (which I often am, lol). Definitely one of the most charming series I've ever watched. :]

I've only watched one and it's called lovely complex. It's about a tall girl who likes a shit boy but doesn't want to admit it. It's good, but that's only one I've ever watched.

I think Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo qualifies as light-hearted.  Absurdist usually is.

In the words of one of my dear friends, "That show's title was designed specifically to make the person talking about it look like an idiot."

 

 

Wh...

 

What...

 

What the fuck is this show?!

This is months old, but can I add some suggestions?

 

Azumanga Daioh is the cutest show ever, but for some reason with a pedophile teacher thrown in there is well. It's a very lighthearted slice of life anime that follows the lives of some high school girls. 

 

Hare+Guu is about a boy named Hare who lives in the jungle. Despite the fact his mom is a floozy, life is pretty good until she brings home a girl named Guu who she found in the woods. Crazy shit starts happening.

 

Nyan Koi centers around a boy who is allergic to cats. He accidentally breaks a cat statue, which pisses off the cat god, so he's cursed to turn into a cat unless he can do 100 good deeds for them in a timely manner. You can see why this would be difficult. Oh, it's also a harem anime.

My sister has a volume of the Azumanga Daioh manga, it was so good. I should check it out. I've been thinking about Nichijou too! Thanks for the suggestion. :)

I've read Azumanga Daioh a little, and I sincerely hope the anime is better. Either it was the translation or I was just extremely grumpy but I didn't like it at all, the idea was cute and stuff but it just wasn't funny at all even though it's supposed to be a comedy.

I haven't read the manga yet, but I can say that the anime is also more cute than funny as well. The huge problem is that a lot of it doesn't translate from Japanese to English at all with the word puns and cultural differences.
