There is a Chinese-Japanese joint production called Space Bugs that I saw advertised on an anime site.

Also for a "somewhat bearable but also annoying" anime, Sonic X has all the Sonic characters and about three seasons I believe.

So I'm a Spider, So What? AKA Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Is out now, and it seems like one of the girls was reincarnated to a cute dragon pet as well.

So after watching the first episode, I think I can accurately guess the format will be that 80% of the show will be about our protagonist while the remaining 20% will show what is happening with the other reincarnated students and teacher.

Does Aggretsuko count as anime? I feel like it's more cartoon than anime. I hate metal but wound up really enjoying that series so far.

I was considering looking into Beastars but I'm not sure I will enjoy it if it's predator boy meets prey girl and the narrative is about the angst of that relationship. I just didn't like what the trailer gave me? I need to be sold on it being more than a familiar 'I need to tame the beast within for love to work' plot.

BNA looks fairly anthro too but does it have annoying characters or a bunch of humor that is uh...not funny? I have not had much enjoyment from anime that has comedy in its descriptor. Not counting cartoonish anime like Aggretsuko or Doraemon. I prefer anime to be entirely serious or almost entirely cartoonish.

If I had to pull from my own experience and recommend something from the West I'd recommend Kipo on Netflix. Wakfu feels like a recommendation for furries because it has a lot of anthro in its world but I'm conflicted about recommending it because of it taking 16 episodes to get to any actual plot and..."gross-out" humor fairly often. Both of these series shine in the villain category though.

If I had to recommend something that isn't anthro at all but I think would be up a furry's alley I'd recommend Mushi-shi or Ancient Magus' Bride idk how to explain why I say that though.

Honestly, that is a huge turnoff for me. If the villains are going to be animals, but the heroes are human. I've seen commercials for Kipo: Age of the Wonderbeasts, and it honestly just looks like Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann 2.0, which was an anime SPECIFICALLY designed to offend furries. And the fact that they felt the need to turn cute and harmless animals into villains is a cliche I am sick of seeing, and always just hammers home the fact that your heroes are human, "f*** you!" There are a couple of non-human characters besides Kipo and excruciatingly cliche Hunter stereotype, but it feels the same as Super Mario Odyssey where they try to make their non-human good guys as uninteresting/unlikable as possible to appeal to as few people as possible. One of them is a whiny bug like creature, and the other one was so unmemorable that I don't even remember what it was.

I've heard it's completely different than the commercials make it out to be, but honestly, I'm too turned off by the commercials to want to support the show. Honestly, I just think anthropomorphic villains in media where humans are the good guys is a cliche I really want to see die. I don't want to like the bad guys, but not the heroes, but too much media has cool and interesting characters that can only be villains.

You should stick with the show until the end of season 2, let's just say the show is split between both sides in terms of its arcs. You'll have to endure season 1 being very 'let me win a new group of mutes over' until you get to the brilliant season 2 however.

The entire point of Kipo's plot is going to hit what you're looking for by the end.

Being as spoiler free as I can.

I've not read through the whole thing but...

No Beastars? Only a single season so far and it almost follows the manga right down to the little details, but they are working on a second season and it's still both entertaining and serious at the same time.

Interesting. I did not watch the trailer for it but I've watched Beastars twice. A fair portion of the series (season 1) is not about a prey / predatory intimate relationship. That is introduced later but I felt it was more of a mature theme. It's also a very complicated and intricate set of relationships / friendships / foodships (yes, I'm making that a term) that make up this whole world. I've had a friend tell me they found the series to be like a very mature version of Zootopia, filled with interesting political and socioeconomic issues. I also enjoyed the art style a lot.

As for BNA, I can't particularly remember any "funny" bits. I know that there's a good amount of drama and serious themes. I preferred Beastars, as the world seemed quite large and interesting, but I did enjoy BNA, as well.

I'd honestly recommend giving both several episodes of your time. If you've watched 4 episodes of both and still aren't interested, then you won't have to worry about season 2.

My girlfriend and roommate put on Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind for me because they couldn't believe I hadn't seen it before. We might watch a few more Miyazaki movies before the weekend is out since this was one of the better animated films I've seen. Nausicaa was a well-written pacifist, feminist character and I can see why Miyazaki is proud the film and talks about it in his writing a lot.

I also saw Akudama Drive, which turned out to be interesting despite me being skeptical of the initial premise. Character development in this series got better as it went on and this series nicely avoided the trap a lot of anime series fall into of having OP characters ruin the story, despite the deceptive initial action scenes. I'm also a sucker for the references in the episode titles.
