Some from "The Criterion Collection"

Samurai Champloo - Crunchyroll

About samurai and hip hop. Music slaps. RIP Nujabes.

Cowboy Bebop - Crunchyroll

About space cowboys, bounty hunting, and there's a cute corgi. Music also slaps.

Carole & Tuesday - Netflix

About two girls trying to make it in the music industry. Same universe as Cowboy Bebop. Music definitely slaps.

Akira (movie) - Hulu Plus

It's kinda gory, but it's a classic!

Every Ghibli Movie - HBO Max and wherever else you can find it

They're masterpieces. 'nuff said.

The Eccentric Family - Crunchyroll

This show is pretty interesting and about tanuki. Fantasy set in contemporary times.

Recently Hot Stuff

Frieren: Beyond Journey's End - Crunchyroll

What a banger of an anime! The story is really good.

The Apothecary Diaries - Crunchyroll

Despite being another emperor's palace detective story, I believe the premise is really interesting.

BOCCHI THE ROCK! - Crunchyroll

This anime has some interesting artistic direction, and also really good music.

Spy x Family - Crunchyroll

Great show to watch with the family. PG13 I guess? Two seasons.

Ya Boy Kongming! - HiDive

Reverse Isekai. Fun show to watch, music's not bad. Some great rap and hip hop as well. About people trying to make it in the music industry. Kongming's a great character.

Serious Stuff

Shadows House - Crunchyroll

Interesting mystery-filled anime. Just go in blind. Pretty good show IMO.

Made in Abyss - HiDive

Gory anime, I honestly stopped after a while because I couldn't take it anymore. However, I still recommend people try it out and see if it's for them.

Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju - Crunchyroll

Great show, recommended for mature-minded audiences. Period drama with some really good Rakugo as well. Music slaps.

Victorian Romance Emma - Crunchyroll

Period romantic drama set in England. It's very charming, and the author is an Anglophile, so be prepared for interesting minute details.

Another - Crunchyroll

Thriller anime. Great if you like spooky stuff.

Boogiepop and Others - Crunchyroll

Supernatural mystery anime set in Tokyo. I don't know how to best describe it, but it's pretty good.

More Light-Hearted Stuff

Kaguya-sama - Crunchyroll

Multiple seasons. Really good and funny rom-com. Music slaps.

Horimiya - Crunchyroll

Cute boy-meets-girl story and about their classmates as well. Must-watch if you're into romance.

Poyopoyo - Crunchyroll

Great for kids and people with short attention spans! Cute cat.

Konosuba - Crunchyroll

Isekai. Very funny show, I highly recommend this one.

Laid-Back Camp - Crunchyroll

About high school girls camping. Very relaxing and educational.

Ghost Stories (dubbed) - Crunchyroll

If you're gonna watch this, watch the English dub. It's pretty funny.

Flying Witch - Crunchyroll

Real light-hearted fun anime about a witch in the countryside of Japan. If you want to just relax and have a good time, this is the show to watch.

Sekko Boys - Crunchyroll

Short-form anime with some really funny skits. I recommend watching it if you have a few minutes to spare every now and then.

Other Gems

The Saint's Magic Power is Omnipotent - Crunchyroll

Romantic Isekai, great for when you just want to watch something easy on the eyes and don't want to think much.

Chihayafuru - Crunchyroll

Multiple seasons. Really refreshing story about a card game named Karuta and the development of the characters in the story about it.

March Comes in Like a Lion - Crunchyroll

Drama about Shogi players. It can be pretty melancholic and uncomfortable at times, but the story is really good IMO.

Mystery drama, pretty good. Full of animal characters. Don't get spoiled! 10/10 writing.

The Perfect Insider - Crunchyroll

Pretty good murder mystery, music slaps.

Call of the Night - HiDive

About vampires and a teenager that discovers their world. Music slaps IMO.

Raven of the Inner Palace - Crunchyroll

Romantic Chinese show about a consort and a new emperor where the consort mostly deals with ghosts and curses and stuff. Supernatural. Very pretty show.

Chainsaw Man - Crunchyroll

Don't watch with your family! LOL

It's the highlight of its season.
