    @Rgbunpro Watamote is seriously awesome and puts a new light on the slice-of-life-genre. Also, the opening's pretty sweet. It's a rather short series though, so you may want to read the manga after that.

    For the record, I've been watching it. I actually agree with you so far. Though admittedly there's a lot of cringe, but I find that it's worth it because as soon as someone talks to her and she starts freaking out I find it absolutely adorable. But so far I've only been able to handle two episodes a day.

    True, though at least in my opinion a lot of the anime's allure comes because of and not despite the cringe. There's just something about it that makes you smile as you cringe. Also, two episodes a day is a pretty good tempo, lets you savor it even though it's kinda short :D

    As someone who grew up being introverted as hell, I continue to find the perspective of this anime really interesting.

    I just finished watching Mob Psycho 100 the other day, and I'm looking for recommendations of shows like it. I really enjoyed it a lot, but the ending has left me wanting more.

    Update:
    I just watched a couple episodes of an anime that was commonly recommended for being similar to Mob Psycho 100 but still good on its own called The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. It's rather entertaining so far, though the show's more of a light-hearted comedy and slice of life with a psychic main character. Though, that could change, since I'm only at episode three. I'm still open to any other suggestions, though.

    I just finished Log Horizon and I'm currently watching Death Parade.

    Log Horizon is like SAO, but with actual character arcs. The main character has his own set of problems, people are are actually in the world they live in, and <spoilers from the first episode> dying doesn't kill you. It shows human morality and mortality.

    Death Parade is like a mix of Death Note and something else. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Maybe Cowboy Bebop.
    It's about people who "judge" people who've died based on some bar game.
    Don't let the first episode deiceve you. It's a little different than you first think.
    It really shows human mortality and morality.
    Edit: Death Parade really shows EVERYTHING about humans.
    All of their emotions entirety.
    Should people even be allowed to judge?
    If so... then what happens when too many people die?
    Etc.

    Kemono Friends isn't a chibi anime.

    My avatar has nothing to do with Kemono Friends.

    I googled it, I didn't base it in your avatar. Chibi anime, with cg graphics. Meh.

    Supposedly it did poorly in it's home country, so forget hope of more epidose or a sequel series.

    IT'S NOT CHIBI
    Compare the body proportions with something like Madoka.

    About 40% of that head is just hair and ears! (although the narmy CGI does leave a little something to be desired, but they had no budget for it.)

    Oi Oi, how long's it been since I was here? So I managed to finally work up the courage to finish watamote. And then I went and read the manga because I told myself that tomoko had to make friends at some point and I needed to make sure she did.

    Eh? That's a thing? I guess I should look into it. Can't promise I'll watch it though, Kinda really really sick of vampires.

    4 episodes of quality animation. It is based on a game apparently.
    The story is unique itself , not your typical vampire movies/series.
