I'm making an essential /r9k/ anime chart.
Throw me some animes, the next time I post, I'll have a sexy chart ready and we can add or subtract from there.
-themes of personal problems being resolved (loneliness, anxiety, depression, etc.)
-themes of finding redemption. (Confidence building, motivation, making friends, finding meaning, etc.)
-dramedies are more than welcome, as long as they're somewhat relatable.
-uplifting stuff is welcome but must have balance. For example, the MC should be ideally in a darker place to begin with.
-no overly cute girl stuff, it creates disillusions or false expectancies when learning to socialize.
-romance is allowed but preferably without unrealistic stereotypes.
And that's all I got, pretty much stuff that's relatable and can even be somewhat enlightening, I know a few people who turned their lives around after watching NHK. Of course, feel free to deviate from the guidelines if the anime as a whole is worth watching.
No game no life
All great suggestions, thanks guys.
I never finished welcome to the NHK, i got to the second last episode and couldnt handle the feels and stopped, i ordered a crate of alcohol recently, needed some extra bottles and for the hell of it got some Sake, i think i will enjoy the last bit while drinking it, seems fitting.
The ending is dramatic, but IMHO the scene that fucked me up the most in the entire show was this.
Obviously NHK is /r9k/: The Anime.
Other than that I would suggest Evangelion and Cowboy Bebop. I know these are heavily mainstream in a way, but they both deal with depressive mindfuck in interesting and artistically great ways.
The obvious choices are NHK and Watamote which are pretty much about people who are robot-tier.
Other choices would include Cowboy bebop (A character which lost meaning, kinda loner and shit), and No game no life (NEET stuff mostly).
There are also some animes that are pretty much strange normalfag and failed normie tier like oreimo (Normie girl who hides her true identity), haganai (Awkward guy but pretty chad tier), Oregairu (Guy who shows robot qualities but completely normie) etc.
I'll just sum up the ones mentioned in this thread that I find somewhat most fitting and add a few more.
>House of Five Leaves (pretty good pick imho)
>Chobits (yes, really)
>Eve no Jikan
