Wanted: anime centred on offbeat, understated, and/or dysfunctional relationships.
Background: just coming off of 'Welcome to the N.H.K.' I've only had minimal exposure to titles properly in the (romance?) genre, but enough to have experienced severe dissatisfaction with what I've seen. Need some help navigating these waters.
EDIT: So after some research my watchlist consists of the following:
- Nodame Cantabile
- School Days
- True Tears
- ef - a tale of memories
- Kimikiss Pure Rouge: while noticeably less nauseating than my previous experiences with the genre this is still a bit on the boring side. I'll give it a couple of more chances (ep4 atm) but it's probably out. UPD: never mind this is just the cutest thing ever it's not what I was looking for but it's still awesome
Any assistance in paring this down, suggesting a viewing order, or even adding to it still welcome.
