Will their love be able to overcome Yuka's insatiable appetite for human flesh, or will the couple be destroyed by the bestial tendencies of humanity?

I don't usually make recommendations based upon a series's art style, but Windy Tales and Kemonozume are so far removed from the traditional "anime look", I feel I must. They are both drawn in this sort of really neat sketchy, flat style is very rarely used.
Additionally, each is about a seemingly normal society, with the exception of a select group of supernaturally-inclined humans (or not-so-humans, whichever the case may be). Granted, they're very different takes on the concept, but each definitely still warrants a look.
A man is miserable. Despite all his dreams of a “Rose-Colored Campus Life” filled with raven-haired maidens who dote on him, his social life is going nowhere. He has no girlfriend, his only good friend keeps getting him into trouble, and the circle he joined brings him no joy. So he tries again, and again, reliving his first two years of college life ad nauseum, making different decisions each time, having no recollection that he’s already done this all before. Will the man ever be satisfied with how his life turns out?
Stylishly animated and darkly funny series from Masaaki Yuasa and Madhouse. They don't have alot in common in terms of plot - for one thing, Kemonozume is far more reckless weirdness then it is narrative - but they have a similar artistic style and tone that makes them recommendable to each other, i'd argue.
