Hopping in here to recommend Houseki no Kuni. No, it's not anime Steven Universe.

Also, I haven't seen many manga recommendations, so here are two:
Arachnid - It's about assassins themed after insects. While cool, it does require a lot of mental fortitude to get through, and it gets a bit NSFW towards the end.
Mieruko-chan - A manga about a girl who can see really creepy ghosts and her attempts to adjust to daily life with them. It's great.
KINDA SPOOKY

Also, I'd like to second Leo's recommendation of FMA:B in the last page. It's a great classic anime with absolutely no tragedy whatsoever.

I can't believe nobody's mentioned Inuyasha yet, a shame really, its super fun and a much older anime, i havent watching it in years so i dont remember but but the half demon dude gets bossed around a bunch while trying to get some power to kill his dad or something. very epic
Also HunterXHunter if that hasn't been said already, though it may have been? anyway a very cool shonen with actual reasonable power scaling. well maybe not reasonable but the main characters are actually capable of failing. a lot.
and most of all, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. like, goddamn, look at those punchy men go. The dogs die though :(

Here's some stuff I've watched recently and liked but I'm detached from the social dogma, so grain of salt:

SSSS.Gridman - Rikka from this anime was girl-of-the-month a while ago, if you can get past the typical Studio Trigger horny (toned down from Kill la Kill but still present) a friend of mine pitched SSSS.Gridman to me as "The greatest miracle of all is that Akira Amemiya liked Evangelion enough to make something good, instead of bad.".

FLCL Alternative - I wonder how many people even gave this a chance. It's a sequel to FLCL, which is like. A sacred cow. And the sequel season before it, FLCL Progressive, wasn't very good and FLCL:A has a bit of the same issue, but it's better because the main cast of characters is so wonderful. I love them. It does kind of fall apart when it has to be FLCL, but it's not trying to be FLCL all the time. It's more of a slice of life teen drama, while FLCL happens in the background.

Girls' Last Tour - This one's where they trick you. This one looks like it's moe girls dressed up in military gear! But instead of being like, anthropomorphized fascist weaponry you're meant to be horny for, it's a bleak meditation on the emotional toll of a truly, wholly fatal apocalypse. It's challenging, and not in the mindlessly offensive "triggered" way, it presents some ideas that are actually tough to stomach at points.

Macross: Do You Remember Love? - I watched a couple episodes of the anime with a friend of mine and didn't stick with the series because I'm bad at watching long anime, but the movie, Do You Remember Love? is like a clip show. Macross has the vibes of watching something incomprehensible and bad, except the difference is, it's actually very good. It's got ideas.

Ah, Girls Last Tour. That one is great. It is quite possibly the most relaxing post-apocalyptic story I've ever seen.

Inuyasha is a gateway drug into either romance anime or battle anime, but it's not bad at all for being melodramatic. Eheh, your memory of the plot is a bit off. Basically the characters are wandering around feudal japan searching for shards of the shikon jewel to keep it out of the hands of demons who want to use it for personal power gain. Naraku, the antagonist demon, has all the irons in the fire and has fucked with everyone at least twice, so everyone is pretty motivated to stomp that smug grin off his face. Really cool villain overall.

This one is even better if you're into tokusatsu. It's not necessary to enjoy the thing, but if you already have experience with super sentai/kamen rider you'll enjoy it even more. There are tons of little details for people who like that stuff.

I highly recommend everyone watch Kaiji. The artstyle may take some getting used to, but the show is suspenseful as all hell. Except when it gets to the second half of season 2, then it just because stupid as fuck. Seriously, 17 episodes of a pachinko machine. Imagine watching that as it aired, having to sit through yet another episode of Kaiji trying to beat a rigged pachinko machine.

If you're into mahjong, I recommend getting into Akagi.
Can not emphasize this enough, Kaiji is the best fucking gambling show ever.

Some personal favs of mine that I would actually recommend:
Jyu-Oh-Sei: Pretty good sci-fi shojo about a pair of twins dropped onto a secret prison planet inhabited by deadly plants. More political intrigue than anything, but there's romance as well. It's also sweet and short at 11 episodes.

Orphen: Haven't watched this one in a while, but this one's high fantasy with a balance of drama and comedy.

Fruits Basket 2019: You can smell the 2000s on this one, for better and worse. While not a 100% perfect adaptation of the manga, it's pretty close and has nice animation.

Given: Cute band romance show, gay and dramatic. Generally not super dark but it does get there at times, as a warning.

Wow you're right! Shame on me for forgetting about Inuyasha! I binged that so hard when I first saw it.

Still haven't finished JoJo's. There's too much good new stuff right now, so I'm trying to watch so much.

I've heard amazing things about Demon Slayer, so that's next on my list. I actually plan to start that later today.

Anybody been watching Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken? I've been keeping up with it since like episode 5 and I'm greatly enjoying it. The opening went viral for a while (with good reason) which is why I decided to check it out in the first place.
