Sometimes we don't need something dark and gritty or overly shounenesque power ups to take down big bads or for original and groundbreaking material to astound us, sometimes we want something to relax, love, or laugh to, so here are some slice of life, romance, and comedy anime that you may have overlooked.

Ikoku meiro no croisee



This anime centers around a sweet little japanese girl named Yune moving to France to work in a sign making shop struggling to survive with less demand for the craft and the competition of a market threatening to put out businesses like it. The anime likes to deal with culture clashes in values and customs between Yune in her new surroundings, trying to find a compromise and enjoying new little things she discovers, building a relationship with Claude (owner of the shop), who can sometimes go too far and be too blunt, but also has to learn how to deal with his visitor while respecting that this is all new to her. The slow, sleepy tone with beautiful backdrops and an adorable main make it a sweet watch.

The Original 5's.
Hi guys, I would like to write down the reasons why I love these 2 animes from my childhood. Ready?

Akazukin Cha Cha

This was the very first anime that I fell in love with, it was like Little Red Riding Hood became a badass princess upon being transform into the magical princess, she looks like an ancestress of Minako Aino (aka Sailor Venus) especially in their appearance!
The story is very interesting as it follows Cha Cha who is an ordinary witch and to find her parents, rulers of the land and that she is actually princess. It is a very touching anime especially with the music itself!

Sailor Moon

I actually read the manga first prior watching it, the funny thing is that I like the Manga version of Sailor Moon S whereas I like the Anime version of Sailor Moon R! I don't know why but that's just me though, the story is also very interesting in its own way.
Upon watching the final part of the last episode in Sailor Stars, I was disappointed that it did not end with Usagi's wedding to Mamoru. But, I think the producers wanted it to take place after the series end.

Yuru Yuri is a anime comedy show. This review is about if the show is worth checking out.

The Plot:

The show is about both the Amusement Club and the Student Council. Both groups have eccentric middle school girls. Kyoko is the Amusement Club's leader who gets both clubs into silly, but fun adventures. Several of the girls have crushes on other girls, but it becomes chaotic in comedic ways.

The plot of the show is really good. The show may seem mundane, because it's about a bunch of kids hanging out, but there's so much more going on than that. The show has creative and unique humor that's well done. The romance is meant for comedy, but it's also cute.

The Characters:

The best thing in the show is the characters. Nearly all of the main and supporting girls are interesting, cute, and funny. Kyoko is the most entertaining and funny anime girl ever, Yui's a good voice of reason, Chinatsu's cute, Akari's amusing, Ayano's cool, and Rise and Nana are scene stealing recurring characters. This show has more good girl characters than most if not all shows.

Fairy Tail is a popular anime show that's very good. The show has several good characters. This list is about the characters that I like the most.

10. Makarov

Makarov is the boss of the members of the Fairy Tail Guild. Despite being a supporting character he's in charge of the main characters. He's a good leader.

9. Elfman

Elfman is a recurring character who pretty much exists for comedy relief and he's good at being a funny comedy relief.

8. Reedus

Reedus Jonhah is another recurring character who's a comedy relief. He is a likeable and enjoyable comedy relief.

7. Gray

Gray is 1 of Fairy Tail's main characters. He's a cool and entertaining character. He's almost as entertaining as Natsu. Not as much, but close.

6. Natsu

Natsu is 1 of the stars of Fairy Tail. He's 1 of the show's coolest, most entertaining, and funny characters. He works well as being a good hero and comedic character.

K-On! is a show that may lack a real plot, but the show is saved by its' cuteness which is brought to us by the main characters. This list ranks the 5 members of anime's best band. I hope you enjoy the list.

5. Ritsu

Ritsu is the leader of the band, but she appeals to me the least out of the band members. She's not as nice and charming as the other band members. She can be hard to stand when she gives Mio a hard time, but other than that she's a okay character. She's a tolerable character when she's not being disrespectful.

4. Yui

Yui is the closest thing the show has to a protagonist. She's not the best choice for the protagonist, but I like her. She is cute and amusing so overall she may not be a complex protagonist, but she's a enjoyable character.

3. Tsumugi

Tsumugi is the charming and well mannered rich character. She has the sort of charm that the show is really good at. Similar to Yui she's not that complex, but with her likeable personality traits and charming design she's a good character.

Castle in the Sky is a Studio Ghibli film. It was directed by Hayo Miyazaki. This review is about wether or not the film is worth checking out.

The Plot:

Sheeta is a young girl. She meets a young guy named Pazu. Pazu helps Sheeta, because Sheeta is being chased by a villainous colonel and some pirates. However the colonel gets Sheeta. Because of this Pazu decides to become allies with the pirates. The pirates turn out to not be as villainous as they seemed to be so it's up to Pazu, Sheeta, and the pirates to stop the colonel.

Castle in the Sky is more action packed than most if not all Studio Ghibli films. Because of that it's more exciting than other Studio Ghibli films. However the charm of Studio Ghibli isn't their excitement. Studio Ghibli's charm is their greatly written films. This film is nicely written in some areas. The colonel's backstory and plan are goodly written and somewhat exciting. The rest of the storylines aren't good, but that's because of the characters.

Code Geass is a anime show that's quite popular. The popularity of the show is goodly deserved. In fact I think the show deserves even more popularity and I hope my review explains why.

The Plot:

The show stars Lelouch Lamperouge, a former prince who sides against royalty. He wants to Earth to be a friendlier world to help his sister, Nunnally. To accomplish his goal he has to get rid of his dad, Charles who's a king. Lelouch gets a new identity as Zero and gets the Black Knights to help him. However Lelouch's best friend Suzaku becomes 1 of his primary rivals. The 2 of them have similar goals, but very different plans on how to improve Earth.

The plot of the show is really good. The show starts off exciting and for 50 episodes it continues being the most exciting show that I've ever watched. The rivalry between Lelouch and Suzaku is impressively written and interesting. Nearly every character in the show is well written so prepare for non stop subplots that are quite great.

Fairy Tail is a anime show that's very popular. This review is about if the adventures of Lucy and her friends are worth checking out.

The Plots:

The show is focused on Lucy, a young girl who becomes a member of the fairy tail guild. She joins a team led by Erza. The other members are Natsu, Gray, and Happy. Wendy and Carla joined much later into the show. Lucy and her friends protect Earth from various villains.

It's hard to talk about the show's plots, because it's not a very plot filled show. The show keeps changing up storylines and villains. The plots that the show has aren't that complex or interesting not counting some exceptions. However the show does a good job at combining action and comedy which makes the show fun.

The Characters:

Lucy seems to get the most complexity of the characters. The show is pretty much her show. She may have some negative qualities, but I think that was intentional. She's a example of how even someone with flaws can be a hero. Because of her complexity she's the best of the main characters. The other main characters lack complexity, but they're pretty good characters....

The Wind Rises is a anime film that came out in 2013. This film is a masterpiece, but several people haven't watched it. Here are 5 reasons of why you should check out this film.

1. The romance is the best.

I usually dislike romance films. However The Wind Rises has the best romance storyline that I've ever watched. The couple (Jiro Horikoshi and Naoko Satomi) are a loveable duo. Their romance is heartwarming, emotionally moving, interesting, and believable.

2. The characters are good.

It's nice and rare to have a film that has no boring characters. Every character in the film is easy to like. The main, supporting, and even minor characters are enjoyable people. Jiro's a likeable and interesting protagonist, Naoko's a sweetheart, Mr. Caproni is a awesome mentor, and the other characters are pretty good.

3. The American version has a awesome cast.

The American version has 1 of the best casts ever. This film has some amazing people including my favorite actress, Emily Blunt. The film has other great people: Stanley Tucci, Martin Short, and William H. Macy. There's not any bad...

Anime Review: Yuri On Ice


First off I absolutly LOVE LOVE LOOOOVE this anime (which is pretty obvious). This show was so well written and organized. Each episode followed the one before perfectly. You weren't left wondering what was going on or having to watch the episode before over again to match up what was currently happening in the one you were watching. You were basically reminded what happened in the last one, and the story continued. At the end of each episode, there was a cliffhanger and you were plesantly left wondering what would happen next. I -personally- would watch an episode and immediently click on the following one right after finishing up. But I would eventually have to force myself to stop watching it (Which would take A LOT of will power).
This series literally made my heart pound within my chest. Each time I watched Yuri skate, i would be on the edge of my seat. And whenever he would slip or fall on the ice i would yell out "NO!". This show just really gets you going! I also loved how Victor didn't always say "You did your best Yuri and i loved...

“Hold still, ___!” Winry exclaimed as she placed a blindfold over your eyes. You squirmed around a bit, not liking having your eyes covered. You didn’t know why you were being blindfolded, but you couldn’t really argue with Winry, she always won.

“Winry, this feels weird. I can’t see,” you said as Winry pushed you forward. You didn’t know where she was leading you or why, she just somehow managed to get you to play along without giving any kind of explanation. “Ahhh!” You exclaimed, taking a step and almost falling somewhere.

“Careful, don’t fall down the steps!” Winry laughed as she continued to help guide you down the steps.

Finally, you were down the steps and Winry stopped you. You felt a cool breeze hit you, causing a chill to go down your spine. Winry must have taken you outside, but why would she do that? She didn’t need to blindfold you to get you to go outside!

Save Me Lollipop! is 1 of the first anime shows that I watched. Save Me Lollipop! is a anime show that has romance and comedy.

The Plot:

Nina is a teenage girl who accidentally ate the pearl a bunch of wizards are after. Nina gets protected by Ichii and Zero who are wizards. Some wizards are after Nina to get the pearl, but Ichii and Zero protect Nina.

Save Me Lollipop! actually has a creative plot, but it oddly ends up being predictable. Nina and Zero's relationship is a pretty typical romance storyline. However the show has enough fun and creativity to avoid being bad.

The Characters:

Nina is a pretty good protagonist. She's likeable and somewhat interesting. Ichii and Zero are generic, but okay. They're not that special, but thankfully they're not annoying. Forte and San are a good duo who have the show's most heartwarming storyline, but I won't spoil it. The other characters aren't that memorable, but are okay.

Alice in the Country of Hearts is a Alice in Wonderland anime film. This film is bizarre and this review is about wether this film's oddness is well done.

The Plot:

Of course Alice comes to Wonderland, but this Wonderland is quite unique. Alice meets this film's weird versions of the Wonderland characters. in this film the Hatter and the Queen are siblings, the Cheshire Cat's a human, and the White Rabbit has a crush on Alice. Alice enjoys Wonderland, but wonders if she should go home. Also the villainous Knave is after he. It's up to the Hatter to save her.

This film is so weird that it averts being boring. This is 1 of the weirdest films ever! It's so weird that it's a interesting and entertaining film. The plot makes little sense, but that works for a Wonderland film.

The Characters:

Alice is actually pretty normal and spends the film being weirded out by the weird stuff that happens in this film. The Hatter is a rich guy named Blood who's the Queen's brother which is creative. This Hatter is no Johnny Depp or Martin Short, but he's a good character. Instead of the Queen being the villain the Knave is the...

Accel World is a anime show that has romance, action, and comedy. The following review is about wether or not Accel World is worth checking out.

The Plot:

The show is about Haruyuki. He's a depressed young guy who got constantly got bullied. His life changes after bedoming friends with the Black Snow Princess, Kuroyukihime. The 2 of them have adventures in a mysterious dimension. They rate joined by Haruyuki's childhood friends: Takumu and Chiyuri.

The plot of Accel World is strange, but unique. Accel World feels like a lighthearted action show. I'm not a big fan of action shows, but Accel World works despite that. Kuroyukihime's plot lines tend to be the most interesting and exciting. Also the love triangle between Haruyuki, Takumu, and Chiyuri is good. Some episodes aren't that good, but Accel World is usually exciting.

The Characters:

The show has 4 main characters and none of them are bad. However Haruyuki is my least favorite of the main characters due to not being as interesting and cool as the others. Kuroyukihime is my favorite Accel World character. She's a heroic young girl who's both cool and...

This list is for the anime characters that I dislike the most. Although I love anime there are some anime characters that aren't good.

4. Ms. Sawako (K-On!)

The main characters from the anime slice of life show K-ON! are okay, but Ms. Sawako isn't okay. She's a immature teacher who's selfih and acts like a bully to the main characters. She's supposed to help the main characters, but she's more bothersome than helpful. She constanly ruins the show.

3. Komari and Natsumi's mom (Non Non Byori)

Komari and Natsumi's mom seems to dislike her children. She's quite harsh to Natsumi, because of Natsumi's grades. She seems eager to be a antagonist to her kids. She was nicer to Hotaru who isn't related to her! Komari and Natsumi deserve a better mom.

2. Happy (Fairy Tail)

Happy is the annoying comedy relief in the show. He's quick to make fun of his friends and acts like a brat when he doesn't get what we wants. Also his jokes aren't funny. Happy is anime's worst male character.

Tamayura is my favorite show. The show has several good characters. This is about the 5 characters in the show that I like the most. I hope you like this list and check out Tamayura.

5. Mr. Dougou

Mr. Dougou is a high school teacher. He's a eccentric person who occasionally seems trouble. However he's a decent person who means well. Mr. Dougou is on the list, because he's the most entertaining and funniest male character in Tamayura. There are some episodes where I laughed quite hard at his antics.

4. Norie

Norie is 1 of Fuu's best friends and 1 of the show's main characters. Norie is a goofy girl who's in love with Fuu's brother. Norie is a troublemaker, but she's a caring person. She's 1 of the funniest Tamayura characters. Her scenes with her brother are really funny due to their opposite personalities.

3. Kaoru

Kaoru is 1 of Fuu's best friends and 1 of the show's main characters. Kaoru is a big fan of good smells. Kaoru doesn't get along with her immature sister Sayomi. Kaoru knows Fuu more than Maon and Norie due to them becoming friends years before Maon and Norie came along. Kaoru is a...

Accel World is a anime show. The show is about Haruyuki, a sad male teenager, who gets a more exicting life thanks to the mysterious Black Snow Princess.

This list is about the characters in the show that I like the most.

5. Haruyuki

Haruyuki is the protagonist. He's considered to be nerdy and unpopular. Despite his lack of confidence he turns out to be a smart and useful person. He may seem odd, but he's a hero.

4. Chiyuri

Chiyuri is a close friend of Haruyuki and Takumu. She's a caring person who tries to help Haruyuki with his lack of confidence. She's a likeable and optimistic person.

3. Takumu

Takumu is Harruyuki's only male friend. He's a very good friend to the other main characters. He's a cool and charming person who's pretty much impossible to hate.

2. Megumi

Megumi is the Black Snow Princess' best friend. She's a sweet friend who has a adorable friendship with the princess. Although Megumi isn't a main character she's a great character. She's cute, sweet, pleasant, and cool.

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya is a 2013 Studio Ghibli film. The film was directed by Isao Takahata. The film is based on the story "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter".

The Plot:

The film is focused on a princess who is adopted by a couple who live in the country. The princess loves her life in the country, but the dad thinks that she should have a life of royalty. The princess moves to a mansion where she is treated like royalty, but she misses her pleasant country life. Plus a bunch of shallow guys want to marry her.

The plot is amazing. The film is over 2 hours, but the film manages to be a wonderful experience. I would talk about the plot details, but that would spoil this masterpiece.

The Characters:

The best character is Princess Kaguya, the star of the film. I love her personality so much. She values the close friendship of the country people more than the fanciness of royalty. She is brave to do what she thinks is right and always manages to be a lovable character. I love the scene where she points out how shallow the royals are by pointing out how they want to marry her despite just meeting her. She...

Whisper of the Heart is a Studio Ghibli film. Studio Ghibli has made some good films. Is Whisper of the Heart a good film? Please read the review if you want to find out.

The Plot

The film is about Shizuku, a high school girl who loves to read books. She meets a high school guy named Seiji. At first Shizuku dislikes Seiji, but she eventually falls in love. Shizuku and Seiji try to focus both on their relationship and their future jobs.

The plot is good. Most romance films are painfully predictable, boring, and annoying. This film is actually pretty charming and entertaining. It has a few slow scenes, but the plot is well done. This film is better than most romance films.

The Characters

Shizuku is a pretty good character. She has a unique personality and is occasionally funny. Seiji may seem immature, but he's a nice and smart person. The Baron is barley in this film, but he's pretty charming and really well voiced by Cary Elwes.

Pokemon is a popular anime show. The show has various films. This review is about the original Pokemon film. The film is a classic to Pokemon fans, but was hated by critics.

The Plot:

Special mention goes to the 10 minutes that got edited out of most versions of this film. The scenes that got cut out involve Dr. Fuji's dark plot. He was trying to bring his deceased daughter Amber back to life. Amber eventually got cloned and became Mewtwo's best friend, but she died. These scenes are some of the most well made scenes of all time. It's weird that 2 characters that barley have screen time (Dr. Fuji and Amber) have a far better plot than any of the heroes of Pokemon. This film is the only film that got me to cry. Watching Dr. Fuji's marriage fail was tear worthy, but Amber's death is the saddest I've ever been at anything fictional. Overall these scenes are sad, but are fantastic.

After that the film has some good scenes including Mewtwo betraying Dr. Fuji and briefly working for Giovanni. However the film stops being good when the main plot comes. The plot is Ash trying to stop Mewtwo from getting rid of humans and Pokemon. It's frustrating...

This is a japanese romantic comedy shōjo manga series written and illustrated by Junko and published by Kodansha in 2013. The anime belongs to the genre of romantic comedy, reverse harem & Shoujo.
The story is about a high school Otaku girl who is totally obsessed with Anime, Manga, Cosplay etc & loves Yaoi romance. But one day accidentally she becomes beautiful and so the atmosphere around her changes as the school boys starts to date with her. She was at first scared that if she can become an otome from otaku but as the series progress the protagonist also made progress. The anime has so many good looking boys so if you're an OTAKU (Fangirl)you won't be disappointed.
The story is average and the animation is good but the comedy is awesome. You'll get stomach ache due to laughing. If you're looking for school romance with comedy I suggest you to watch it. I love the comedy of this anime so much.
Story- 7/10
Art- 9/10
Comedy- 10/10

Hai and welcome to mai new article the top ten anime 2!!! I hope u like it and plz comment after u read!!

1. Fairy Tail

Ok lets just say that I absolutely love this anime. It has so many wonderful moments and characters. Its mainly Fantasy so if ur more of a Slice of Life person or Horror, I wouldn't recommend this show.
On the scale of Fan service I say this show is pretty mild. Although they have some dirty jokes..


2. Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Now this is a Dark Magical girl anime. When I first went to look at it I thought I was just going to turn out as a new Sailor Moon, but boy was I wrong. PMMM is a AMAZING show that I woud recommend to anyone for both genders can enjoy it. It has little to no fanservice and barely any cursing.

3. Alice in the Country of Hearts
OMG OMG OMG!!!!!! ok so this is a REALLY girly anime about The basic Alice story but with a twist: All the main magical characters (besides the queen of hearts) are HOT teenage boys. I would say this anime has basic fanservice (but no flat out sex) and they do use guns and swords regularly... But this is a very good anime/manga...
