    I want to like Tamako Market, it's by some of the people who did K-On! which is one of my favourite anime, and it has a trans woman in it which is cool... but that talking bird is so fricking annoying!

    - High School Fleet

    Older stuff we've watched elsewhere (DVDs etc):

    - Azumanga Daioh
    - Love Hina
    - Kill La Kill
    - Ouran Host Club
    - Bleach (at least the earlier stuff)

    If you like Fleet then Girls und Panzer is similar but with tanks and lighter in tone

    I haven't seen the other two but for a romantic themed anime maybe The Pet Girl of Sakurasou

    Space Patrol Luluco is a wacky show by the Kill la Kill folks

    I mainly watch slice of life stuff, if you're interested in that then I'm sure I could come up with a long list...

    I've seen some of Girls Und Panzer and I think my friend has seen all of it so was looking for something a bit different, but thanks ^_^

    Well Azumanga Daioh is slice of life, technically so is Love Hina I believe. So by all means suggestions would be appreciated :)

    Just looked at the description for Space Patrol... that certainly reads like something from the brains of people involved with Kill La Kill lol. May be worth a look, cheers. :)

    I'm actually planning on watching School Rumble next after I finish the Ouran High School Host Club. My sister showed a clip of the show before she left on her travels to Europe so I might do that as soon as I remind myself where I am in the Ouran High School Host Club because of I've gotten through the majority of the episodes there.

    Ouran was the show that got me into anime after Pokemon put me off it.

    Oh was it? Cool. Right now I'm piecing together which episode was before I stopped watching the show and left it on a very very long break. I'm thinking of watching episode 23 again because that's the last episode I remember watching from.

    Thanks for that suggestion. I've seen it listed on Crunchy but it's not one I've tried yet. I may give that one and Space Patrol a glance over tomorrow and see which takes me the most for where to start from.

    Plastic Memories we picked last time because the description intrigued both of us - plus we'd both seen Chobits in the past (think I forgot to mention that one) - and we ended up marathoning the whole series. Though yeesh the emotion in that one. Not one to watch if you don't want to end up a wreck lol.

    Okay just found out I can't watch Lucky Star because the rights moved over to funimation when they did the blu-Ray release and though Crunchyroll has recently been doing collabs with funimation, Lucky Star isn't available on Crunchyroll right now.

    Sweetness and Lightning was a nice slice of life without the drama, maybe give that one a shot? I also really enjoyed New Game in that genre, really recommend looking at that one.

    Thanks for the suggestions :)

    @Pigasus - I watched the first ep of Space Patrol Luluco (albiet without sound) last night. Looks perfect! Exactly the kind of madness I know we both sometimes go for :) (I probably would have guessed it was from the same people actually. It is very Kill La Kill like isn't it?)

    Yup! There's actually a big reference to KlaK later in the series, so there's no mistaking it (@; The ending theme is lovely make sure you listen with sound next time [email protected]:

    Watched all of this today, with sound, with my friend - it was great. :) Judgement Gun Morphing!

    Watched 3/4s of Sweetness of Lightning today. So cuute. Also it kinda made me hungry. It goes so in depth with its recipes too.

    Yeah it's a really sweet show, it was really nice to see a show that wasn't pushing a romance angle or any major drama, it just enjoys itself. I'm literally the biggest anti-foodie type and I still got a lot of enjoyment out of the show.
