The anime stack of mostly all-male casts which is original or adapted from mangas/novels. No romance anime here (yes there are some who fell in love but romance isn't the main plot). I won't include the sequels because the stack is limited to 50 so you gotta find them out by yourself.

Part 1 (idols, games, multimedia projects):
Also check out pretty boys doing sports:

Anime that portray characters heavily influenced by words. This could be anything from a librarian, a writer, editor, etc.

As well as characters who have troubles with speech, writing, or using words to express themselves properly.

Some anime listed may be included because the book / words themselves take on a life of their own.

Basically anything related to the subject will be included.

Please feel free to contact me if there are any more anime that need to be added. Thanks!

~~~Honorable Mention~~~
- Junjou Romantica, novelist
- Tokyo Ghoul, avid reader
- Mysteria Friends, magical books
- Gosick, Library
- Shadows House , notes and diaries

We all know that famous historic Japanese warlords, samurai, ronin and ninjas (Such as Oda Nobunaga and the Shinsengumi) are frequently feautured in various anime, but what about famous Japanese writers instead???

There's sadly not a lot of anime featuring them currently, but hopefully it caught on and there'll be more of them coming in the near future!!!

Animeby guddi

Classic mystery whodunnits or police detectives solving cases involving murder, theft, etc. with a limited number of suspects. Mostly episodic rather than a full series with only one plot/case. Some listings with supernatural elements but only if it fits the 'detective' part of it.

Title says it all. This list focuses on animes where the main theme is mystery (some kind of detective/supernatural help agency might be involved) and the 2 main characters have some kind of thing going on (with varying levels of canon-ness)

Warning; tone/additional genres vary a LOT. pay attention to them so that you dont end up watching something you dont want to see, lmao

An assorted stack of anime series that revolves around characters living in dorms or apartments. The hostel setting may or may not be the direct plot point of the anime.

For anime with sequels, only the first seasons of each have been included in the stack. The genres include (but are not limited to) Slice-of-Life, Comedy, Drama, Sports, and Romance.

animes that are set in a Taisho (maybe shouwa) and earlier era, the stack is more for the aesthetic, that the kind of stories.
some series inspire in chine also made the cut
