I remember Sword Art Online being popular among some people here. There was a really cute one I started watching on Netflix, called Mushi Shi I think. I used to watch Samurai Champloo when it aired, and I like the Ah! My Goddess and Tenchi Muyo stuff. I guess I like more cutesy anime. The only series I watched in its entirety is Berserk.

Rhaps, try watching Lucky Star. Cute and funny. There are tons of good ones from the 'cutesy' side of the Anime spectrum. I'm certain Hina can list many more than I can.

Asobi ni iku yo is cute, but ONLY the crunchy roll version - which sadly is unavailable since Funimation bought the rights. The original broadcast version that crunchy roll used with their subtitles was an excellent version, the subs were very well done, but also because it was the TV broadcast version the fan service/nudity was toned down by the usual beams of light and innumerable humorous signs held over the offending body part by the assisteroids - little cat like service droids owned by one of the lead characters. the signs were very funny in their own right, and often added to the humor of the situation. Unfortunately Funimation has the uncensored version, so fanservice and body parts are all there for the world to see, and a lot of the humor has gone. Their subs are also not quite as good as the crunchy roll ones. I think when Funimation does a localization they attempt to do more interpretation which results in them substituting words and phrases in subtitles, that absolutely are not what is being said by the characters. It sort of makes sense, but only if you don't know any japanese at all...

I.. don't think any those are generally considered cutesy anime.
If you liked Berserk, check out Claymore.

Forgot to mention how very much I enjoyed SAO. I know that it's fashionable among some sections of anime fandom to pour scorn on it, but personally I loved it. Asuna/Yui/Kirito FTW! :love:

Yea, BakaTest is great. I enjoyed the second season a lot as well, but it definitely toned down the humor in its second half. More Shouko though, so it seems like a fair trade-off.

Other comedy anime I'd recommend ('cause I loved them), in order from "cutesy" to, um, more "mature":
K-On
Chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai!
Working!!
Mitsudomoe
Yondemasuyo Azazel-san
Detroit Metal City

If you want anime, mature and comedy blended in a way that seemingly only the Japanese can manage...try Panty and Stocking with Garter-belt. Only please, please do not watch or judge by the Funimation version done for the US Market. They ramped up the level of the mature language a couple of degrees in both the subtitles and dubbing. Apparently they interpreted the instructions from the Japanese producers in such a way that they either substituted F-bombs for other exclamations instead of using more appropriate exclamations, or simply randomly seeded the scripts with f-bombs. Either way it is far, far more foul mouthed than the original I saw at Crunchy Roll. That original version was hilarious - but definitely mature.

I will say first off that I don't do vampires, zombies and serious supernatural stuff - so a lot of that type of anime if out for me. I don't like blood/gore or actiony stuff. I like funny, romance, slice of life, schoolgirl stuff. Yes, I am weird and like some ecchiness if not icky. :evil:

So I have a very eclectic mixed list. Most of it is just plain fun though. I don't watch anime for any reason other than to feel good.

Western title version (always go with the subbed, not dubbed version - Crunchyroll is your friend!):

Pet Girl of Sakura Hall -- Sakurasou
Problem Children are Coming from ANother world, aren't they? - Mondaiji
Oreshura
Kotoura-san
Seitokai No Ichizon - Student Councils Discretion
Vividred Operation
Lucky Star
K-On!
Bridge Over the Starry Skies
Dragon Crisis
Mashiro Iro Symphony
Bodacious Space Pirates
Papakiki - Listen to me girls, I'm your father!
My little sister couldn't possible be this cute - Oreimo
The World God Only KNows
Hayate the Combat Butler (1&2 season much better than - the latest one)
Battle Girls Time Paradox
Girls and Panzer
Say I Love You (awesome!)
My Little Monster
Ano Natsu de Matteru (Waiting in the Summer)
Saki/Saki side A (even if you don't like Mahjong)
Familiar of Zero (loved F)
ToraDora
***The Idolm@ster*** SOOO much more than just music
Love Love! (same as above)
YuruYuri
Nakaimo - My Sister is Among Them
Astarotte's Toy (give it a chance and get past episode 1)
Chu-Bra - again, not what you think it is and really good
Kimi ni Todoke - from me to you
Kanokon (a little ecchi)
R-15 (bit ecchi)
Rio Rainbow Gate
Working!!
Nyan Koi
Mayoi Neko Overrun
Hand Maid May
Steel ANgel Kurumi
Please Teacher
DarkSide Cat
Cosplay COmplex
CHOBITS
GJ Club
Girls High
GoodLuck Ninomiya Kun - cute but frustrating
Kokoro Connect
Majikoi Oh! Samurai girls
Da Capo III (I like it so far through I haven't seen the the first 2, I have to say I am a little lost as to the back story - but I still like it a lot)
Sword Art Online - already mentioned
Total Eclipse - if you like mechs and lots of action, was a bit gory for me but very suspenseful and engaging
Twin Angel - fun fluff and a cameo by Danny Choo's Mirai :kawaii:

and I could probably keep listing...but that is enough for now

For those not in the know: ecchi
[+] proper explanation
is how the Japanese pronounce the letter H (in English), which stands for hentai, which
stands for perverted (ie. sexual jokes and/or nudity).

Ronny, in most instances ecchi simply means risqué, too many people see the word ecchi and immediately connect it to hentai which is stronger than risqué. There's a spectrum there, and ecchi is on the innuendo/risqué end of it, hentai is more towards the pr0n end of the scale and beyond. Basically there's a huge difference between ecchi and hentai. 'ecchi' might inhabit the tv-14 category, hentai will generally sit in the R-rated and upwards category. If sexual innuencdo, risqué humor and conversation or cartoon boobs and butts offend you, there's a good chance that some ecchi material is not for you. If there is anything more than that kind of content, you're getting into hentai territory - which is a whole other conversation involving questions about the viewer's age and whether or not they would view that kind of things anyway.

Personally I draw the line at ecchi, I sincerely doubt anyone could come to any harm watching an ecchi anime. I don't/won't watch anything that goes beyond that. I have seen some Ikki Tousen (unfortunately) but to be honest I found that stepped a bit beyond ecchi and mixed in some violence along the way making for some very uncomfortable and awkward scenes. I won't watch any more of it, and I think it absolutely merits the TV-MA rating it get's.
