Synopsis:

Tsukimi is an otaku and jellyfish enthusiast whose only means of coping with the world is to reject it: she and her friends live in a house they declare a man-free zone, generally avoid 'stylish people', and spend their days blissfully bonding over geeky rituals. As misfortune would have it, their convenient existence is about to be turned on its head by the arrival of Kuranosuke, a seemingly beautiful young woman who is actually a beautiful young man. While he may be strange even by their standards, Kuranosuke embodies everything Tsukimi secretly dreams of being - a princess as ethereal as a floating jellyfish - and promises the kind of mind-boggling adventures only possible when geek meets chic!

Eden of the East

Eden of the East

In the year 2010, on a day called ‘Careless Monday', ten missiles hit the cities of Japan; miraculously, there are no casualties and the event quickly fades from public memory. Some time later, Saki Morimi decides to visit Washington, DC on her graduation trip to America, but that day begins a series of bizarre events. After getting into trouble with the police, she's rescued by a young man who is completely naked save for a gun in one hand and an even stranger item in the other - a phone credited with 8 billion electronic yen and a female voice on the other end called Juiz who will fulfill his every wish. Having no recollection of his past and calling himself ‘Akira Takizawa', the young man accompanies Saki back to Japan in the hopes of discovering who he is. Akira's enigma quickly proves fascinating and Saki decides to help him rather than reunite with her family; but what neither realizes is that Akira is embroiled in a dark game of life and death linked to the Careless Monday missiles. Has Saki just made a terrible mistake, and can Akira unravel his own mystery before they both lose everything?

Both anime involve a boy who swoops in out of nowhere and turns a young woman's world on it's head. In both, there is the underlying subculture of NEETs, and their stuggle with the generation gap.

Both Fruits basket and Kuragehime are very upbeat, hilarious, and have a great cast of different characters which many you fall in love with. Both animes have unsure heroines and a great line of supporting characters

Genshiken

Genshiken

Ever wanted to join an anime club but felt its geekiness would hurt your reputation? Sasahara feels your pain. Genshiken, the Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, is an organization of college otaku obsessed with anime, manga and video games. Their daily activities include holding impromptu cosplay photo shoots, braving the crowds and avoiding injury at doujinshi conventions, and tolerating harassment by Saki, a girl irked by her boyfriend's otaku-ness! It's a perfect match for Sasahara's interests, so why is it so difficult for him to join?

Kuragehime and Genshiken are both anime about groups of quirky otaku. This is more of a gut-feeling recommendation--something about Kuragehime just made me think of Genshiken and vice versa.

Genshiken Nidaime

Focusing on a group of older female otaku and a crossdressing boy in their midst, both Genshiken Nidaime and Kuragehime are dramatic and funny all at once. Genshiken's earlier seasons are pretty different from Nidaime, so if you have seen either Genshiken Nidaime or Kuragehime, I'd highly recommend the other.

Gokinjo Monogatari and Kuragehime are shoujo/josei titles with a bunch of comedy punctuated by romantic angst. The casts of each are absolutely brilliant, everything they do is entertaining, and they never get tiring to watch.
