There will be times that I want to watch the next episode but as soon as the op/ed played, I'll vibe to it first. If the anime has more than 1 op/ed, I'll put the specific song/s that I liked in the description. Also, these are all based on my personal taste in music ^^

Shows where some characters are written and portrayed outside what is considered the standard "man" or "woman". This is my first interest stack so I just wanted to have fun with it and recommend some animes I liked under this particular idea ;^)

And happy pride month~!

self-explanatory title, the anime in this list have uncommon themes, like pottery, microbes, and (why not?) designing every life form that God wants. either this, or they have an unusual setting; like, a surrealist world or even your body. no, really; it may not be yours, but the setting of the anime is, indeed, a human body!

also, a bunch of those anime are part of the CGDCT sub-genre, since they seem to have pretty unusual topics

These are all shows under the seinen demographic! There are various different genres like action, fantasy, mystery, thriller, romance so don’t be surprised when you find a show you thought could be a Shoujo, shounen, or Josei in here. These are all shows I found interesting and so I hope for find something you like in here! (Working on explanations!)

While the vast majority of animated works are those of fiction, there are occasionally those that provide legitimate information about the real world, be it that of science or history. This is informative fiction, colloquially known as Edutainment, since it seeks to both educate and entertain.

A typical format often involves characters from an outer frame of reference discovering the topic of interest, though others may involve direct dramatised portrayals of relevant events.

This list is an ongoing collection of shows that can be categorised as such. The only real barrier for entry here is to have the topic that is to be taught as a primary focus of the show, rather than incidental to an otherwise wholly fictional plot.

You've heard of CGDCT before
now get ready for CBDCT!

Not really parallel to cgdcts, there's far less in this category and the line with BL is blur so just a collection of soft BL shows I guess. Halfway through it isn't even 'cute'
boys anymore lol.

Please pm any recommendations you have to add to this, I'll add it :)

A stack of shows that constantly kept me laughing and giggling.
These shows primarily focus on creating comedic situations in nearly all scenes and the character personalities and relationships are designed to support the comedic atmosphere.

Only shows I watched myself. Second seasons not included, but always recommended.

Just "Soft" Slice of Life animes I watch and would recommend watching in the background after watching them a few times.
(Animes with little action in them or are just adorable to watch)

LGBTQ+ characters outside of boy's love or girl's love anime. I know there are more (Sailor Moon, Banana Fish, etc.), but I was just pulling from shows I've watched. I tried to avoid headcanons.
