One thing I’m amazed at is the way anime is a “big tent,” with hundreds of different kinds of stories that can be told. Are you getting tired of isekai anime? Getting bored with idol series? There’s always something totally new waiting to be discovered. Let’s take a look at some of the best anime genre names, in the spirit of Crunchyroll’s hilarious categories.
Of course it’s important for children to not be murdered, and it’s good that the Children Avoiding Being Murdered category exists.
The Reverse Harem, or “Help! I’m Surrounded by Beautiful Men!” anime genre is another one that’s fun to watch.
Some anime have become meme machines, and you can’t venture out onto the Internet without checking the latest episodes so you can understand all the memes you’ll be seeing.
Who doesn’t love Cute Girls Doing Cute Things? It’s right up there Cute Girls Start a New Hobby.
Then there’s the Romance Anime Where the Heroine Dies Right after you Start to Love the Character. They will get you every time.
Since anime is free to tell stories that are gritty and realistic, I’m a fan of the Dark Fantasy where the Power of Friendship is Not Going to Help and Lots of Good People Die anime genre.
Characters Caught in Repeating Time Loops where they Experience Painful Deaths is another important genre.
I’m always down for a series from the Serious Adventure Stories with Random Ecchi Jokes Inserted genre.
Another unique anime genre is A Brother Lives With his Sister with No Parents Around, which always leads to quality incest comedy.
Martial Arts with Pantsu is another category of anime I’m always down for.
I also love the Cute Girl Bullies a Boy Because She Likes Him anime genre. I would love to be bullied by Nagatoro.
Maids Having Accidents Involving Pantsu is another awesome category of anime I can’t get enough of.
Then there’s the Non-maids Having Accidents Involving Pantsu. It’s just as good.
Boys Climbing the Staircase of Adulthood with a Sexy Onee-chan Character is a genre I just love.
What’s your “anime guilty pleasure”? Here’s a blog post with input from J-List customers!

The standard “anime harem” genre needed updating, so now we have Impossible Harem of Slutty Gals. Are you a fan?
We stock all the official Imaizumi-kun hentai products on J-List here!
Another fun genre to watch is Things That Piss Off Twitter. Nobody wants to be shamed by random busybodies on the Internet because they thought a university student’s boobs were too big, and those people should stop doing it. Complaining about this or that anime only makes it more popular, anyway,
A related genre is Things That Piss Off the United Nations. Yes, this actually happened…
