Synopsis:

Yuki is an introverted teenager whose intense fear of public speaking makes it difficult for him to make friends, so hoping for a fresh start, he moves with his grandmother to the small island of Enoshima. Shortly after his arrival he encounters Haru, a strange youth claiming to be an alien - and what's more, the otherworldly visitor requests his help to catch a strange being that inhabits the local waters! Along with fellow classmate and local angling celebrity Natsuki, the boys must now form a bond in the hopes of saving the town from the force that is threatening it. With a mysterious organization also lurking about and posing potential danger, Yuki must put his best face forward and protect the island... with the help of a fishing rod?!

Rinne no Lagrange

Rinne no Lagrange

As the sole member of a club dedicated to helping others, do-gooder Madoka Kyouno didn't hesitate in helping save a girl from drowning one day. But little did she know that she actually saved an alien named Lan, and that soon, Madoka herself would be in the pilot of a giant mecha...

The above is a preliminary synopsis that will be updated once more episodes of the anime have been released.

Both of these animes are about a person making friends with aliens, and then having to save the earth from other aliens. Neither of them are super serious.

Potentially an "out there" rec, but I see a lot of similarity between the main characters in both these shows. Yuki and Jun have both withdrawn from interacting with others at the beginning of the story. Both shows are a coming-of-age tale in which the protag learns to overcome his fears with help from unsual friends.

Tsuritama and Summer Wars are visually similar, heart-warming shows with a focus on relationships. Both involve people putting aside their differences to solve a major problem.
