Naruto

While it has iconic moments and largely set the stage for anime and shonen in particular, Naruto does not age well; there are plenty of better shows. It is very culturally relevant to be familiar with, however.

Ms. Vampire Who Lives in My Neighborhood

If you’re hungry for more slice of life with extra helpings of sugary “Moe” to the point it’s almost cloying, yet has some genuinely good moments, go pick it up. There are better mindless slice of life shows, but I didn’t resent watching this one.

K-On! The Movie

With some extra sentimental feels and more polished animation, this is a great finisher that fits right in with usual K-On shenanigans.

Interspecies Reviewers

A surprisingly good comedy fantasy anime with good worldbuilding, humor, and characters that goes to show that you can have a show centered on sex yet have great writing.

K-On!

KyoAni breathes their signature love into this piece, making it another great show for de-stressing and having a stakes-free good time.

Girls und Panzer: der Film

While it's literally the same plot as the series, the action and animation are improved (though some action is as believable as a Fast and Furious movie). It has a vibe of watching an eSports match, just with very Moe anime girls.

Yakitate!! Japan

Yakitate!! Japan is a goofy, wholesome comedy that channels a similar vibe to the great Abridges series of the early 2010s with quality humor and the cast doesn't really take the show seriously.
