Maiko-san chi no makanai-san is adorable so far. Protagonist Kiyo and her best friend Sumire want to become maiko after seeing them at a school fair. They both apply for a school and get admitted, but Kiyo isn't cut out for it after all, so she becomes their cook instead. It's mostly about what a maiko's training entails and lots of cooking stuff.

Gyaru to kyouryuu is great and super relaxing. Is about a gyaru who has a part-time job at a konbini and her friend dinosaur who doesn't speak. The anime mixes multiple styles of animations, including live action and the op and ed songs are super cute. I watched it during a very bad misadventure with my schizo meds and it kept me sane for an entire week, very recommended.

Been watching Moomin (1990s TV series) lately and find it to be pretty comfy and nostalgic. It's about this Moomintroll named Moomin going on adventures and having fun with his friends and family. I have a love for traditional hand-drawn animations/illustrations and this show reminds me of Winnie the Pooh to which I enjoyed watching as a little kid. You can find full episodes on YouTube.

Is "A Silent Voice" coomerish at all? I watched a few clips of it online and the visuals are very pretty.
File: 1634627737825.jpg (185.21 KB, 1200x1600, 71yY9juQWAL._RI_.jpg)
This is really vague cuz plenty of media, if not majority, isn't coomerish and doesn't have sexual fan service, from adventure movies to horror to period dramas. Are you looking for specifically the wholesome slice of life stuff or like romance without sex scenes and anime without big tiddy chicks? I don't think they're hard to find.
No in your face pantyshots if that's what you want to know but FeMC is def a low-key love interest.

On a similar note, Ebine Yamaji - the queen of lesbian manga (though sadly not very prolific). Haven't read her more recent comics, but I trust she hasn't gone the coomer route. I've read Love My Life and Free Soul and can recommend them. Just keep away from the LML movie as it has made the heroines look much more femme/attractive to the average viewer. I think the movie had a much more cutesy tone, too

The Good Place is one I can watch with my family comfortably. I'm not big into Marvel but WandaVision was great too.
Some recommendations from different genres. I think almost all of them reference sex in some way, but I just tried to think of some I like that aren't male gaze-y:>Mare of Easttown (2021)
Crime drama about the murder of a teenage mother after another girl in the community has already gone missing. The main detective is played by Kate Winslet who does really well. References to prostitution, and assault and there's one scene that has mild nudity, but I thought the treatment of the female detective and victims
was refreshing, not too explicit or voyeuristic like a lot of crime dramas.>Downton Abbey (2010-2015)
Not sure if this is cheating since it's a period drama that spans the early 20th century, beginning with the sinking of the Titanic and touching on major events like World War I, the Spanish flu epidemic, etc. Deals with sex and rape, but it's more about how they would have affected women at the time. >Kath and Kim (2002-2005)
Comedy about suburban Australia. Definitely raunchy with a lot of sex jokes but it helps that the two main actresses created and wrote for the show.>Pushing Daisies (2007-2009)
About a pie-maker who solves murders with a private eye because he can bring people back to life for one minute by touching them. If he touches them again, they die permanently, but if they're brought back for more than one minute, someone else will die. Quirky fantasy with pretty set design that's sort of like Amelie if it was a mystery of the week show. Some sexual humor.

Hacks really, really impressed me. It's about an older Vegas comedian and the zoomer comedy writer she's forced to collab with, but it steers away from easy or obvious jokes – it's mostly about how hard it is for women to succeed in a public field, and about them realizing how much they have in common. Really amazing criticism of how women are constantly sexualized too, especially in one scene later in the series. Watching Jean Smart rip apart a horny bro comedian is fucking golden.

Anti hypersexualized in a dark way rather than a wholesome way, but Helter Skelter (2012) and the manga it's based on are amazing takes on what becoming the hypersexualized goddess men want does to a woman's soul. It's about a supermodel at the apex of her career who's starting to literally and figuratively fall apart from surgery, pressure, abuse, etc. Really dark, but really good.

Mika Ninagawa is amazing, she got me into photography because I loved her use of colours and I rec Sakuran if anyone want's a great manga adaption, it's about a courtesan and her life in a brotel in old time Japan but like it's not creepy or male gaze-y at all, also Anna Tsuchiya is in it and it's always nice seeing her face
You found the jackpot, anon. This will literally wash your soul. Can anyone recommend me more stuff like this?
Also, to add more to the list (can't really confirm if all they're truly non-coomer, we live in a society yada yada):
Your Letter (didn't finish reading but had good vibes)
Kodama Maria Bungaku Shuusei
Spy x Family
Her (Tomoko Yamashita)
Love, Hate, Love (Tomoko Yamashita)
Pieta (Warning: psychodrama and psycho stepmothers afoot)
Tsuki no Sango
Etranger Series (BL but surprisingly down to earth and deals with real issues)
River's Edge (same author as Helter Skelter)
My father is a dragon is a tiktok series but it's still good nonetheless:https://www.tiktok.com/@myfatherisadragon/video/7002242661797072134?lang=en

ayrt, and YES, I love Sakuran too! Haven't seen the movie yet b/c I know I'll love it and I want to save it for my birthday, lol, but the manga is amazing. Ninagawa is a genius, and so are Moyocco Anno and Kyoko Okazaki. I wish like hell more josei manga got translated, and that there was more awareness of these works in the wider world – there's so many brilliant Japanese women making incredible art that gets lost in the river of shitty porny anime. I want to live in a world where like, Lisa Taddeo and Gillian Flynn have seen Helter Skelter. I want Ninagawa to be a name like Takashi Miike is.
Anyway, Sakuran totally fits the thread too! FYI for those who haven't read/watched: It's about a 1700s courtesan who is very sought after and also completely miserable. Really coarse and miserable and constantly trying to leave. Another amazing look at what Being The Waifu actually does to a human person.
File: 1634854053504.jpg (164.76 KB, 640x480, thisonesummer.jpg)
So true, so true, and you'll love Sakuran! It's amazing, blew my mind and gave me my eternal love for josei. It's why I get peeved to this day that all the people around me into anime/manga are into that typical shonen shit and it's like anyone else like the actual good stuff, you know? Also on the western side, two comic artists I recommend are Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki. This One Summer was so lovely and I wish I had a film or show based on it made. Like it's something only two women could have written about (two young teenage girls coming to terms with growing up, there's some minor PG things in it, but nothing super creepy or cringe.)
i wouldn't rec this to any anons who hadn't watched it given what the thread is about. nana's abusive
boyfriend still upsets me when i think about it.

Thank you anon for reminding me of Barakmon! If anyone is interested it’s a manga/anime about a young calligrapher who punches an art critic in the face and then lives on an island making friends with the people there with his first bestie being a local 6 year old girl. It’s sweet and cute and funny and a great series to read on lazy summer days especially. Pic is of the best girl from the manga

Anon, you are reading my damn mind. I LOVE This One Summer. You're so completely right, it could not have come from anyone but women. I reread it a couple months ago and just marveled over little details like Windy summoning up the courage to tell Rose she's being sexist, the mom trying so hard to hide her pain over the miscarriage, Rose and Windy joking about growing boobs. So many little moments that immediately reminded me of things I experienced at that age. Have you read Skim? It's the book they did before TOS. A little more downbeat, but it's just as good. I actually used to work in a bookstore, and I spent a whole summer between school reading eeeeverything I could from both Tamakis. If you can find it, Mariko did this ya graphic novel called Emiko Superstar that's definitely a little more mainstream, but perfectly captures the feeling of being an earnest teen girl who doesn't realize she's being creeped on by a scuzzy art dude until it's almost too late.
Okay lol, to address the thread at large: Everything by Jillian and/or Mariko Tamaki is an amazing and honest look at girl/womanhood.

Super Cub! The anime came out last season, but it’s based on a light novel. It’s definitely a show/novel for low cc motorbike otaku, but in a “I love the freedom of riding my bike in nature” way as opposed to the “look how many autistic facts I can tell you way”. While I’m fairly certain that the main characters are girls because the target audience is men, it’s not in an annoying or coomer way at all. There’s not much plot, extremely daily life comfy. Might border on boring to some people though.

Idk if it's everyone's cup of tea but I love Corner Gas. Show about people living in a really small town in Saskatchewan. It's pretty lighthearted and funny with minimal romance/sexual themes.

The author is female and the mc is a flawed loser that looks like a delinquent. The female mc grunts like a a legitimate deaf disabled person, so moe, soooo coomer.
Speaking of self-inserts, My Next Life As A Villaines is cute. It's an isekai in which a teen weeb is reborn as the doomed villaines in an otome game. It's 100% wish fulfillment and the female protag is annoyingly clueless, but it's also just really wholesome. Another female oriented isekai I like even better is Ascendance of a Bookworm.

Yakitate is funny but isn't it full of fanservice as well? I thought it was a precursor to Food Wars/ Shokugeki, in which the foodgasms become even more overtly sexual. Or maybe I'm just misremembering.

Oh man, Corner Gas is one of my favorite shows. It's a major comfort. Me and my grandma used to watch it literally everyday, had every episode recorded. I've seen the whole series more times than I can count which is kind of weird honestly kek. I love the humour and how the whole show is basically a small town pranking each other daily. Here's a gif of Oscar blowing up a salad.

Michael Palin's travel documentaries are comfy, superbly done, intelligent and very genuine. He's a regarded as a national treasure in Britain for both his contributions to film/television and his great reputation for kindness and patience. 'Around The World In 80 Days' was his first and most well-known and, although it's a little amateurish to begin with as he gets used to being followed by a camera and pressured to react, it really comes into its own and produces some wonderful, humorous and touching moments. He has this great ability to connect with and charm others, which is just delightful to watch. It being filmed in 1988 adds another layer of interest, too - seeing how much the world has changed in a little over 30 years is fascinating.
He's made 8 others since then and from what I've heard, they are all just as captivating.
Here's a clip from my favourite episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tjkbUN1TRU

Ayrt and yes! Skim and Emiko Superstar were so good! I wish I could find more series like them, also I actually met them both in person and they're so lovely I have to say. Lucky getting to spend your summer reading them. I also have to rec my hands down fav anime to all the ladies here: A Place Further then The Universe/Sora yori mo Tōi Basho. You might think oh cute girls doing cute things but no! Not at all, its beautiful, well written, the young girls are like actual young teenage girls who all come together to support one another in helping their friend find her mom who went missing in Antarctica. Spoiler-ish the last few episodes will destroy you emotionally but again well done, not scrotey at all, I love this anime so much and have to let everyone know!

I love Wolf Children. Watched it with my mom and it became a bonding moment. Some ideas for something similar? It's about a single mom raising two human/wolf hybrids. Has a message about ecology and humans and animals coexisting in the margin of their respective worlds. Also about widows and single moms, and mutual aid between neighbors

I just finished watching sonny boy a few days ago. It's abstract and some people might find it "2deep4u" or pretentious but I don't feel like it ever tried to be that, its just taking a different path with story telling and the message they try to convey is quite simple if you just sit down with some patience. I particularly enjoyed the relationships between the main trio, there's no dogshit romantic triangle where both girls try to gun for the socially inept male mc, instead the friendship is really well handled especially in the latter half between Mizuho and Nagara, you can tell they are two people who support each other completely platonically and it's wonderful! If you watch this I hope you like it, it's only 12 eps so it's pretty easy to finish in one sitting.
Seconding this, I loved sonny boy so much. Easily one of my favorite anime in the past few years. >>166308
Aki-sensei is such a random coomerbait character but thankfully she doesn't play a big role. I don't know what her deal is honestly. It's hinted that she's a student pretending to be a teacher pretending to be a villain so maybe the way she looks like is like a fantasy of hers.

It’s a well-known classic already, but I can’t recommend Princess Tutu enough. It’s great, from the soundtrack to the dramatic screenplay to everything else.
Other animu recs where I can’t recall anything coomerish: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou aka Daily Lives of High School Boys, Mononoke, Dennou Coil, Genius Party (experimental short movies but some of them are really good), Sakamoto Desu ga?(comedy), Kaiji, Hyouge Mono (it’s…different, I recall lots of tea ceremonies and philosophy)
It’s been a while since I’ve watched any of these tho so I hope my memory didn’t fail me.>>166350

Eleanor Estes books, I loved reading them all growing up and they're still a good read 20 years later. I don't see her hyped as much when it comes to children authors so I wanted to throw her in here.

Paradise Kiss has sex and nudity (picrel) but tbh I think it belongs here. Yukari's first time with George is one of the most honest depictions I've ever seen of what it's like to lose your virginity as a girl, from the good parts to the awkwardness to the "is piv really going to feel good someday???" thoughts. the first time I tried to have sex and my bf's dick wouldn't go in, i felt less embarrassed when i remembered the top right panel. thanks, yazawa!

I don’t usual watch many western cartoons because a lot of times the art style annoys me. I gave this a watch a few years back though and really liked it. I think it’s a fun premise and the triangle is kind of a neat villain.
I started watching Centaurworld and despite the goofy style, it is really nicely animated? Somewhat childish toilet humor but I also like the main character enough (a war horse trying to find her rider) that I’m willing to keep going.

I love Full moon so much. I recently came back to the series because I found out that the two voice actors who played the shinigami died in 2013. The songs are great and the story shows no mercy in ripping out your heartstrings. The story is similar to creamy mami where magic gets a young girl to become older and start her music career. Except in this story it’s very sad and about death.
Nta but good to know I’m not alone with that, it was weird seeing the bloomers during the beginning of my neighbor Totoro.
Idk, the whole movie felt awkward and unsettling.

and I hope you're still doing great! Pinkie Pie is just an absolute sweetheart, a gift that keeps on giving though I haven't watch far enough to see her sad side. Also love listening to this remix of her smile song.

Lucy Knisley whose an artist who makes these really cute graphic novels that feature things like her mom whose a chef, her pregnancy and other typical subjects but her art has a lovely warmth and nostalgic feeling to them and she also really likes food so I like reading her stuff and then copying the recipes when she includes them (Relish obviously being my fave from her for that reason)

I cried during the end, for obvious reasons but right? Every recipe I've tried from her has been so amazing, I'm right now reading French Milk (her Parisian travel diary) and it's A+ as usual!

oh yes! I used to borrow these from the library as a kid! Don’t remember much, but I used to loved it back then as well. The concept reminds me of many other kids series like beyblade, but instead of dumb boys screeching at their gadgets it’s girls working together with their battle dolls who are actual characters and with gorgeous CLAMP art instead.

I know a good amount of anons already know about them, but I highly recommend all the movies from Cartoon Saloon. They're an Irish studio and one of the few that still does hand-drawn animation. Their work is absolutely gorgeous and intricate. As a bonus most of their main characters are strong-willed girls who get things done. Their work is not 100% carefree, there are moments that are bittersweet or address violence (though never explicitly gory), but overall I'm always happy to watch them.

Kageki Shoujo is really enjoyable and all the characters are great. There are 2 things that might not make it a perfect fit for this thread, but it's close. So anons can decide:
>We see a flashback where one of the main characters is harassed by her mom's boyfriend. He tries (and fails) to enter her room and then we see her being kissed by him as a child, which is obviously disgusting but the show treats it as the abuse it is
>At one point another girl says she had a goal to dress like a sexy/busty anime character which is completely out of character for her, but the comment is quickly dropped/forgotten past like a 2-minute scene
Other than that it's all about the girls wanting to improve their acting/singing, supporting one another, growing up and hoping to become famous entertainers for a primarily female audience.
I watched The Secret of Kells when I was in middle school with my class and I loved it but I had forgotten its name so thanks nonny
for making me google Cartoon Saloon, their other movies look amazing!

Legend of Galactic Heroes
Partially because the author seems to hate women (there is less than 10 named women in the 110-episode-long show).

Carole and Tuesday is a good short anime with no sexualization or weirdness! It’s a wholesome story about friendship and music! There is this a thing where 2 side characters are trans, but it’s from a mutation caused by the atmosphere on Mars and not by choice kek, so it’s not really coming from a political aspect and it’s a very minor thing. On Netflix btw

>>302596>with no sexualization or weirdness
That’s probably more accurate but that whole aspect confused me tbh.>>302639
Not sure if bait but that part is obviously a comedic bit and it’s still not sexual. The lyrics of the song are “fucking bullshit” over and over again like ??
The visual novel Clannad has no sex scenes. Nagisa doesn’t act like a retard or toddler either, she’s a normal girl who speaks normally and doesn’t make retard noises. Her intelligence is above average and she enjoys writing the dramatic play to revive the drama club.
Are you confusing it with Kanon or Air? The main girls in those are baby retards but Nagisa is not like that. I like her and she reminds me of myself so please do not get her confused with them.
