Nichijou – My Ordinary Life

“Follow the adventures of three ordinary girls as they make life’s awkward moments a thousand times worse. Along with a colorful bunch of classmates, they learn their most important lessons the hard way. Like whether goats are an appropriate form of transportation, who would win in a wrestling match between the principal and a deer, and most notably, if the three-second rule applies to weenies that fly through mohawks. Meanwhile down the street, a pocket-sized professor makes life difficult for a robot who just wants to be normal. But normal is the last thing you can expect in a town where salmon falls from the sky. In fact, the only thing you can count on is your friends, but even they are totally weird.”

Betrayal Knows My Name

“Gifted with a strange ability to see into the troubles of others, kind-hearted Yuki Sakurai finds his life turned upside down the day a handsome stranger named Luka appears. A peculiar longing pulls Yuki towards him—is this the mysterious man from his dreams? He’s left with questions but no time for answers as danger begins lurking around every corner. Evil beings appear, known as “Duras”, seeking the power that dwells within him. But the mystery of who he is, and who he once was, will bring everything crashing down around him. He has a choice: side with the Giou clan and their Zweilts—powerful duos who fight the Duras—or follow his beloved childhood friend down the path to humanity’s demise. Torn between two sides, only Luka promises him loyalty, devotion, and protection against a world filled with secrets and betrayal.”

Scrapped Princess Licensed by Funimation

Scrapped Princess

“Pacifica Cassul is a kindhearted girl living on the run, for prophecy has named her the poison that would destroy the world. Known as the Scrapped Princess, she’s the target of countless followers of a powerful religion. But even when it seems like the whole world is out to get her, she always has her two adoptive siblings—Shannon and Raquel. Together they travel the countryside, making new friends and battling countless foes. Bit by bit, they uncover the incredible truth behind the prophecy and its ties to mysterious events from 5,000 years ago. With the fate of the world in her naïve hands, Pacifica and her siblings must learn who to trust and take on enemies of godly power. But for all their struggle, should such a poison be allowed to live?”

About Walter P

Plays too much, but still has too many games to finish. Will play any type of game and will watch anything, so is of course not good at being productive. Loves anything crazy.

    Nichijou is an interesting choice – but it feels like something that Sentai would pick up, not Funimation. It’s an interesting show though so I hope people give it a shot.

      Agreed with you on both points. It’s definitely in my top 10
