Oh, almost forgot... Porphy also happens to have one of my favorite WMT openings, along with Romeo

I began watching Porphy a couple days ago... the series got me and didn't let go until the end. One more fantastic work for the WMT.

If I'm correct, now it's 15 WMT series down, 5 subbed series to go (without counting subs in progress).

Oh, by the way, if I'm correct, then that means that thanks to the effort here with Tico and Katri, we now finally have 20 subbed WMT series available!

You can still find good new anime.
Did you notice this new trend of monster girls? Amazingly enough there good things among those... monstrosities. I recommend Interviews with Monster Girls, I didn't believe in how well intentioned that anime was.

But giving what you asked, you could watch Non Non Biyori, or even Barakamon.
And of course there's always Aria.

Thanks vini64 for your reply.

Oh, and about the recommendation, how about trying Hanada Shounen-shi?

vini64 | Sep 6, 3:51 PM

I would've recommend Ghibli films for you, but I checked your list and you watched most of them. I would also recommend Cardcaptor Sakura and Little Witch Academia, both of which I watched recently and became favorites of mine because of their inspiring content, relatable well-developed characters and overall happiness they provide you, but you also watched them, so I'm out of luck :P

Akai_Shuichi | Sep 6, 3:28 PM
I actually enjoyed the whole series. And it was the kind of series I would've probably been fine watching 100 episodes more... I kinda just liked watching Katri going through life.
