could you guys recommend me an anime whose protagonists are unrelated by blood but form a family unit of sorts? Something like Reigen and Mob in MP100, or Yato, Hiyori & Yukine in Noragami, or the cast of Howl's Moving Castle. Children/minors aren't a must. It's okay if there's a bit of romance between some of the characters, but the group as a whole should primarily give off a familial vibe, not a romantic one.
Close/strong friendships involving more than two people might be acceptable too - think Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, HeatGuy J, Ouran (bit of a stretch).
Besides those mentioned above, I've also watched Bakemono no Ko, Usagi Drop, Stranger: Mukou Hadan and Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon, so please avoid recommending those.
Thank you!

Kuragehime has a group of nerdy women living together communally in a boarding house as a sort of sisterhood of dorks.

Also try to google something like "anime where main character is an orphan" or "anime where main character parents passed away" then you will find plenty of them and in those you will find few that will have something like brothership, bond between characters, ect.
