I’m looking for an anime with the following qualities. If it’s on Animelon, that is a plus.
I’m watching a weighted mix of anime that is slightly below my level, slightly above my level, and quite difficult. In this case, I want the anime to be quite difficult.
Relatively standard Japanese
Lots of shouting, rude expressions, dialect, etc are sub-optimal, although I have some degree of tolerance. It doesn’t have to be slice-of-life. (E.g. Death Note is okay. Some over-the-top shounen anime are borderline. I have no problem with shouting, rudeness; it just makes my study less efficient.)
The vocabulary is useful and not overly niche
A little bit of show-specific or fantasy vocabulary is fine. (E.g. Death Note is okay. My Hero Academia is borderline but still okay.)
Not overly sexual
Kill la Kill is my limit. Beyond that and I get too easily distracted… (This has nothing to do with an aversion to sexuality, violence, etc. I just don’t want my mind to wander while I’m trying to study.)
Genres to avoid
Over-the-top shounen, emotional drama, extremely long series (looking at you One Piece), very niche fantasy (e.g. I’m now stuck in a video game)
