Taishou Yakyuu Musume., Girls & Panzer Recommendations
These might seem different - but they are more similar than you'd think. In truth, Girls und Panzer is actually just a sports series with an all-female cast and a rather unique sport. The music, overall feeling, characters, their personalities, and just about everything else feel almost the exact same. Both also focus on an underdog team (in both cases they start out not having a clue what they are doing) overcoming big odds, getting to know each other, and working against social standing. They also both lack much of any fanservice or pandering, surprisingly.
Lovable characters learning a sport, learning to work together as a team, and admirably pursuing success for a higher goal. In one it's to save their school, in the other it's to break the constraints of tradition. Supporting characters may resist, obstruct, and belittle, but some of them eventually become acceptant and supportive. These are simple, straightforward stories, full of warmth. Even predictable happy moments can offer great satisfaction to a viewer who cares about the characters.
