    Question Anime without a plot

    I mentioned last night I was going to start a thread about anime without a plot. That is, there is no central story. Unfortunately, all I could come up with were what I call Dumb, but Fun anime series. And I think I started a thread on that already.

    Cromartie High School
    Kill Me, Baby
    Papawa (Well, maybe this one is borderline. There is a bit of a story arc, but you barely notice.)

    Can anyone think of an anime without a plot which is not dumb, but fun?

    I'm going to nominate Nichijou for this one. From what I can remember it's all random stuff. Maybe Lucky Star too.

    I was about to suggest that too. Definitely fits the bill.

    There's also Lucky Star and Azumanga Daioh but I'm not sure if this fits @PictureGuy 's "not dumb, but fun" criteria.

    Can you tell me more about these series? I know some of the names. I think I have Azumanga Daioh on my Netflix list somewhere. But other than that, I don't know anything about them.

    Dumb, but Fun means what it says. The anime is dumb, but it is fun to watch.

    Shirokuma Cafe is pretty much We Bare Bears. But like, anime version. It's got some heart touching moments.

    It's about a polar bear who owns a cafe and all (or really, most) of its guests are animals.

    Well, Shirokuma Cafe/Polar Bear Cafe is hardly dumb IMO. It gives really good puns in Japanese, I luckily got copies with good English subs (meaning they can make the puns as funny in English/they explain if it's in Japanese) from my boyfriend. I think he got it from HorribleSubs. It's about a Polar Bear who owns a cafe who loves puns. He usually interacts with his friends Panda, Penguin, and Sasako. There are other talking animals in the whole series. Each episode is pretty random and sometimes they go to the beach. It's only 7-10 minutes long with 50 episodes.

    Lucky Star is about Konata who is an "otaku". She also has friends whom she would always ask random questions. Lucky Star makes use of lots of references from anime, manga, games, etc. It also became popular because of their dance and ending songs which are from different animes.

    As with Azumanga Daioh, I only watched a couple episodes in local dub. It's very random. I'm not really sure what's going on since I didn't get to watch everything. It takes place in a school setting mostly as far as I know.

    I hope these helped. I'm still trying to rack my brain if I know any other animes without a plot. I'm more fond of animes that does have a plot though but animes that don't are a breath of fresh air.

    One-liners and puns seldom translate well. I had a similar problem with Cromartie High School, but there it was jokes about Japanese culture. There is a bonus portion of the DVD's which explain the jokes, but if you have to explain it, it isn't funny.

    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    Probably "Honobono Log"

    Also "Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou" barely has a story, just daily high school life situations.

    That sounds like dumb, but fun.

    Does it have a cameo with Annoying Orange?
