There's Love Hina, it's 24 episodes long, 27 when counting Love Hina Again, though it's romance with a lot of comedy rather than the other way around.
There's Chobits which at 26 episodes is romance/drama with a respectable amount of comedy.
There's Toradora!, romance with some comedy (though not much), at 25 episodes. At the final, the actual ending is after the credits, remember this or you'll be vastly disappointed by what looks like a shitty ending.
There's Amaenaideyo!! which at 2*12 episodes is ecchi-type comedy with a romantic subplot. As a warning here, the season finals contain mild nudity (nipples, and lots of them to be exact).
There's Sora no Otoshimono which is non-explicit sexual comedy with a bit of romance at 12+13 episodes.
There's Kiss X Sis which is actually better described as sexual frustration than romance, at 12 episodes it ranges from almost pure comedy to non-explicit soft-porn.

Btw: I'm a newfag just like you and I only know about these because I specialize in romance.

You'll accept whatever people are kind enough to give you. If it's only one, deal with it, as it's more than I would give.

Good job with the welcoming party knives, perfect!

On another note, wouldn't he accept what people offer since he doesn't get any more suggestions, sentenace seems redundent to me.

I don't welcome people who come to the board asking for recommendations. It's not hard to find anime you like by either lurking or searching it out for yourself. I've never had a problem finding anime to watch.

He was acting like an ass, I used my comment to at least try and set him straight.
#199691 to #199666 - slaykingftw (09/06/2012) [-]
the question of why its your place to set me straight, and in such a condescending and hostile manner, is raised by your comment
User avatar #199701 to #199691 - MillionsKnives (09/06/2012) [-]
>fine ill accept two or more less than 30 ep ones instead of 1 long one

Why did you have say this in such a hostile manner? Why not accept what you are given, and be thankful for it? I just went off of how you sounded, hell, if you didn't even say that, I wouldn't have responded at all. Why is it my place, you ask? Well short answer, because someone had to call you out on acting like an ass. And don't even try and say you were sarcastic, as we both know that's bullshit.
#199706 to #199701 - slaykingftw (09/06/2012) [-]
no, we don't both know that's bullshit. in fact jokingly saying something like that is something i do often in real life, and what the fuck did you think i meant when i said ty to people who reccomended things to me? and you still haven't explained why you felt it necessary to "set me straight". what gives you the right to even determine what is straight, let alone attempt to enforce that view by being a pretentious authoritative asshole (which by the way is a fucking horrible way to get people to listen to you)

All we would have would be recommendation threads if we allowed them. Kindly stop being an idiot and just leave. Come back when you have something to contribute.
User avatar #199741 to #199716 - slaykingftw (09/06/2012) [-]
if who allowed what, once again i pose the question. what gives you the right to allow or disallow anything, and who is this we you are talking about. so far you are the only one being a pain over me asking for reccomendations.
User avatar #199761 to #199741 - MillionsKnives (09/06/2012) [-]
I swear to God your shift button better be broken.

It's also painfully obvious this is your first time here. You have obviously come at a point in time where I am the only one who actually cares about the redundancy of rec threads, and how annoying they actually are. About 80% of the time, you would not get these answers. Who is this we I am talking about? About 90% of the "oldfags." What gives me the right to allow or disallow anything? Because I know what the fuck I'm talking about. Rec threads are cancer of the highest tier, and it only takes a couple months (if that) to learn that fact. Truthfully, I cannot stop you from making them, but if you actually participate in the board for a little while, you would eventually come to see my point of view.
#199806 to #199761 - slaykingftw (09/06/2012) [-]
i probably won't, because ill do this thing called empathizing and realize "we're all new at one point, so this self created division of oldfags and newfags is pretty clearly a poorly crafted attempt at creating an imaginary hierarchy based on seniority and is used almost exclusively to talk down to other people for no real reason at all. so rather than engage is this circle jerk ill come from a place of understanding rather than condescension and help them out by either directing them to some old rec threads i know of or by not talking to them as if i were some self appointed emperor and instead suggest they look it up elsewhere"

God I love that image. It's in 4/4 when there are only 3 notes, none of them being half notes.

it seems like every time you comment i just hate you more. you are essentially the purest form of the asshole who thinks himself better than everyone else. seriously, fuck you. the worst part of this is that i know that no matter what i say you're just gonna sit there and not even consider what i say, you'll just lean back and think to yourself "wow im so much better than that guy" and search for bullshit to justify that thought because that's probly the only thing you have to be proud of, that sickening sense of superior significance. and on that note of alliteration i bid you goodbye, hopefully you live a shitty life that ends with you being bitter and alone.

So you make yourself look like an ass then try and cover it up huh? You are the worst type of person. Don't ask for recommendations from a board you know nothing about and will never contribute to.

Hey now, calm down. Just so you know, not that much people here like rec threads because it's simple and easy to just search it up online. The ones that actually give recommendations are accepting of random rec threads.

Just because someone is bitching you out doesn't mean you can just bitch right back. What you do is sincerely apologize for whatever you've done. I don't care if you think that you did nothing wrong, still apologize.

I'm not taking anyone's side here. I'm just saying not to argue. We're all friends here, even though we sometimes have little spats. If you really want to make sure that people know that you're being sarcastic, add a *sarcasm* thing at the end. It helps.

thanks for the advice, but im a big fan of reciprocation, if people are nice to me i try to be nice to them, if people are attacking i return in kind

Then why don't you flip your ideal? Be nice to them, and they will be nice to you. Who knows? It might work. This whole thing started because Knives thought that you were being an asshole about asking for recommendations.
#199734 to #199704 - slaykingftw (09/06/2012) [-]
food for thought, and i tried to be nice when i first started this thread, but clearly that does not remove the possibility of people not acting nicely, and thus i respond in kind to their agression. i respect your philosophy, but i have mine because i believe it to be best.

pic related, its what i feel like you're doing atm (the potato represents your philosophy of universal fault and nonagression)
#199755 to #199734 - sayonarazetsubou (09/06/2012) [-]
I'm not really making you eat the potato, just suggesting that you eat it.

But it is a really good potato, trust me.

If you want to handle this your way, that's fine, but I believe that arguing like this will get you nowhere. You're like two arrows pointing directly at each other. I won't interfere anymore. I'm just trying to solve a problem.

Anime recommendations are not hard to find. Next time, fuck off and use Google or lurk.
#199675 to #199669 - slaykingftw (09/06/2012) [-]
hrmmmmm i wonder why i didn't just Google it. i mean its not like people enjoy doing things like joining communities to discuss new found interests or anything, or finding people who share interests with them. i mean who the fuck does that, uses the internet to make discussion based communities for specific topics, and even if they did, what kind of fucking asshole would try and join one by asking a question about said topic. don't i feel like a fucking idiot now...
User avatar #199693 to #199675 - MillionsKnives (09/06/2012) [-]
>but i've read literally countless manga

How do you find your manga? Do you go around questioning random boards for recommendations as well? You do know that at least a quarter of the anime made is based off of manga right? If you liked specific manga, why not go watch the anime for it?

As I said, it's not hard to find recommendations on your own, can't you tell based off my picture? Instead of asking the board, why not find something on your own, then end up discussing it? Seriously, it's not hard, and actually contributes to the board, instead of cluttering it up with the same shit that has been said at least 1000 times before.
User avatar #199703 to #199693 - slaykingftw (09/06/2012) [-]
dude i don't even get why you're being such an asshole about this, i understand if you personally don't like reccomendation threads, but you neither speak for the board, or have the job of moderating or policing the board so i kindly submit that you fuck off
#199708 to #199703 - MillionsKnives (09/06/2012) [-]
hrmmmmm i wonder why i don't just fuck off. i mean its not like people don't enjoy constantly having to discuss the same anime over and over again, just because someone can't look over a few pages for a different rec thread. i mean who the fuck does that, actually look through a board to see if what they want has already been discussed recently, and even if they did, what kind of fucking asshole would try actually use those recs for themselves, instead of making their own thread. don't i feel like a fucking idiot now...

That actually hurt a bit to type. There is such a thing as a shift button, and I suggest you use it.
User avatar #199759 to #199708 - slaykingftw (09/06/2012) [-]
i was looking for a more specific type of anime, seeing as i had watched one and really liked it alot, and thought it would be faster and more convient to just make a thread asking for suggestions, and that if everyone was so sick of the threads then no one would reply and i'd go searching then, but unlike you it seems like the majority of people don't hold a meaningless and visceral hatred of being asked for help by someone. it also seems like they don't make think things like "fuck that guy, how dare he ask for help in a public forum. i mean its not even directed at me, but i think that the only reasonable thing to do in this situation is try and act superior to him while proffering no help whatsoever....yeah that will be real mature and ill sure show him"

if it hurt so much to type it then why did you? and sadly the one suggestion you make in this thread follows the pattern of your other comments in being condescended and pretentious.
User avatar #199789 to #199759 - MillionsKnives (09/06/2012) [-]
Take a look at this image again.

See the other sites under the writing? The very first one is a site that recommends anime to you based on the specific show that you liked. I know this, not because I've been there, but because it specifically says "Anime Database and Recommendations. What are the next two sites? Oh wow, could they actually say "Anime Recommendations?" Na, that's just too easy. Once you get to the site, either site, is it possible, you know, instead of wasting other peoples time, you could have made, at the very least, an effort?

I don't give a fuck how I'm sounding, as long as you learn how to find your own shows, instead of asking to be spoonfed.
User avatar #199831 to #199789 - slaykingftw (09/06/2012) [-]
look i get it, you don't like reccomendation threads and you apparently don't give a fuck how you sound, but none of this changes the fact that you're a cunt who seemingly doesn't do a fucking thing other than talk down to people like a fucking asshole, and really the only thing you are acheiving here is making me really want to start like a million rec threads just to piss you the fuck off, almost entirely because you are such a ridiculously miserable and angry motherfucker for no reason what so ever. are you fucking twelve? do you always try to solve your problems with other people by acting like a fucking asshole? really you should at least fucking try being reasonable before treating other people like they're so far beneath you. who knows maybe it will work

>making me really want to start like a million rec threads just to piss you the fuck off

Haha, it really wouldn't piss me off, as all it would serve is probably you getting a bunch of red thumbs.

>are you fucking twelve?

Says the person who cannot type a proper sentence

> do you always try to solve your problems with other people by acting like a fucking asshole?

Actually, no, this is the first time in at least a month that I've been this much of an asshole to someone, and even longer before that, but you really made me want to play the role.

>really you should at least fucking try being reasonable before treating other people like they're so far beneath you.

Not when they create cancerous rec threads.

it's pointless. anime board gets a hell of a lot of requests for recommendations and it peeves a lot of people...
there's a lot of quirks that this board have that new comers aren't familiar with, but just be nice (and tolerant) to people and you'll learn fast if you still wish to become a regular on this board.
please don't hate me
