The adorably naive girl Kobato and her talking stuffed-animal companion, Ioryogi, go on the adventures of everyday living in Kobato.. With a kind soul but zero sense, Kobato is on a mission to fix broken hearts of the people around her. Both hapless and helpless, Kobato herself becomes comforted and taken care of by the same friends and strangers she tries to help. Though heartwarming and endearing, only the show's final episode becomes relevant when a single lemon wedge is found on a lunch tray.

Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb

Just when you thought the name of each Hidamari season couldn't get any sillier than "☆☆☆" the fourth season hits you with "Honeycomb" (or "Hanikamu" for you weeaboos out there). The six girls from Hidamari apartments are back and bigger than ever (well, it's mostly just Hiro who's bigger). During a class trip to the country the girls run across a humble alpaca that reminds them of the shivering principal. It's a relatively unknown fact, but this alpaca happens to be the same one in Wooser... meaning both shows take place in the same universe. Season five is sure to have a surprise visit by everyone's favorite yellow mascot.

Nisekoi: False Love

False Love is Shaft's latest romcom harem about Raku Ichijo, the son of a Yakuza boss, and his unwelcome engagement to Chitoge Kirisaki, the daughter of a Mafia boss. The show's main gimmick is Raku's locket that can only be opened by his childhood crush who he gave the key to 10 years ago. Instead of just having each of the girls try their keys, the show goes round and round without conclusion before eventually dropping the locket plot line. Raku is fond of animals and even has an alpaca or two in his backyard.
