Rich kid harem Anime
So it was a manga i used to read back when there was only a few chapters out. If i remember correctly mc was an heir to some big company and was hella rich, and he had a harem of girls who were taking care of him as a result. I remember one of the girl seemed to care about him as a person regardless, i don't remember the rest
Set up is similar to this https://mangadex.org/title/3ad71bcc-3b99-4da6-9c1f-729741cce411/tamarowa But the male main character is of high school age, and not as brazen with woman. I don't think it was a game show either. Sorry if it's too vague
Anime with wacky humor and multiple characters Anime
I'm not sure if it was a Shonen anime or Western animation. I only watched it once in TV, in the mid to late 2000s. It was dubbed to Spanish in this case. The plot was action-adventure oriented, with a group of main characters but I don't remember details. The only episode I watched was probably an early one, the group being in a field or a town.
There were two secondary characters who kind of joined the main group as allies, at least temporarily. One of them was an old man who was constantly doing dumb stuff in the background (maybe juggling or using a unicycle) and funnily saying "look at me, look what I do!" or something similar. The other character was a young man who also repeated a line in a similar fashion.
If I remember right, the main characters didn't pay much attention to those two men, as they were background comic relief or maybe just not plot-relevant. Despite the absurd humor, it seemed the series took itself seriously in some degree.
It's not Bo-bobo or Rave Master, but looked similar to them. Thank you!Edited by combomb
Mecha anime: Kid with giant robot fighting corporate? Anime
I only remember one chapter: the protagonist was dressed in worn clothes and looked like some kind of "Wild Boy" with a connection to a giant robot. For some reason an organization was after him and the villain on duty was a fat man, somewhat old, who controlled a kind of robot shaped like a head (it was just a head without a body).
No Title Anime
There was a manga I'd encountered many years ago, purportedly one of the earliest in the Yuri Genre, where a girl meets and begins to fall for another girl. The second girl, it turns out, has horrific burn scars from a fire, and lives with a sister who was even more disfigured and blames the first girl's family for their misfortune and is plotting revenge.
(Solved) Show/ first episode about a girl who wanted to hunt yokai and a yokai? Anime
The premise was like this girl came from the country to the city to be like, a youkai hunter or something?? And she runs into this dude who like helps her out but he’s secretly a fox youkai. He also like, helped her pick out a good kimono and I think a hair pin bc what she came from the countryside with was super stand-outish. There was also like, a clock tower and a chase scene and meeting outside the gate to the city at like, sundown or something. I think she also came to the city with her brother and they split up for the day to each go find work. I can't remember if this was just like, the first episode to a show or was an OVA but if anyone knows what I'm talking about I would greatly appreciate it.Edited by Chibiterasujojo
Manga With A Chapter About The Red String of Fate Anime
I used to read this manga that I liked back in the day and I want to reread it, but I don't remember the name or anything about it. The only thing I remember is a chapter (or chapters) of this manga that talks about the red string of fate. One day at school the main character notices that her friends are falling in love or liking other people, than the person they used to like. They then bumped into a girl I think? Or boy? The Boy has a sister whose string is attached to her childhood friend and she didn't like that. She then painted her nails allowing her to break the string and tie it to the main character's male friend. The girl's brother is at the main character's school to fix the mess she made. At the end of the chapter or chapters, the main character (who is a girl) broke the red string of fate by making her friend realize he loves her or something like that. One detail about this is they made the nail polish with some herbs or something in order to see the red string. Another thing is this manga has a bit of magic, but I'm not sure. That's all I know about this chapter or chapters of this manga I am trying to find. If you guys know about this manga or the chapter of a manga I am describing please tell me!
Ecchi anime scene in store changing room Anime
I have this anime scene on my mind, a bit ecchi. It was a guy and a girl on a date (I think, or he was just helping her with shopping or something) and they were in a lingerine shop/section, and when the girl were gonna put her panties back on, she tripped and fell, somehow getting his face in between her legs. His eyes got all swirly from this little surprise, and while trying to get out he must've rubbed against her. Because, to no surprise, she had a little orgasm, even the staff yelled at them to pipe down. Anime girls, under the right circumstances they seem to orgasm just from being poked. There was also another girl outside, following them around I think. I'm guessing this was some harem anime, so she was lively a jealous girl following them around just to see what went down. She had irange hair and wore a bad 'disguise, cap mouthwear and sunglasses. Also, I think the girl in the changing room were named Nikita or something. Something with Nini or Mimi, I can't say for sure.
I'm really hoping someone can help me find this!
Shojo anime with two colorful monsters Anime
REPOST: When I was younger, I watched part of a scene from an anime randomly on TV. There was a girl who saw another girl with her parents. The first girl was then chased by then couple, and all of a sudden, these slimes emerge from the mom and the dad that form into two demon monsters with long claws (one red and one blue), which caused the parents to collapse; apparently were possessed by the monsters. The girl fights these monsters, but then the monsters embrace and fuse into a larger purple monster. So the girl fights this thing with magic or something and destroys it, and this causes the girl and her parents to wake up all better. I tried to search for it, but I couldn't find it. What could this anime have been?Edited by SilvershadeWolf
BNHA live action Anime
I remember seeing a video on Twitter about a BNHA-inspired live action sequence. In that video is a fight scene between two characters, and one of them has the ability to swap himself with an object, and fights by throwing around his backpack. Does anyone know where I can watch the whole thing?
Forgot manga title, help please! Anime
Totally forgotten one manga title. Main hero (female) had defeated a demon Queen and, as was custom, she was given a princess hand in marriage. That's first chapter. Now, hero and princess (married girls) need to figure out what to do about their current situation. Not to mention, the demon queen was defeated, not killed, and now, she spies on them and begins to develop feelings of her own for the heroineEdited by m@xwell
Anyone know where this image is from? Anime
I think this is anime, although it could be a Western cartoon. Anyway, I have an image in my head of a starfield with a huge wall of fire rising up "in front" of it (as, in, the fire was superimposed on the starfield, but still semi-transparent so you could see the starfield). I think it was shown when some character used some special attack they had. I'm sorry this is so vague, but it's all I remember.
Does anybody know what Anime\Manga show this is? Anime
So. The premise is a bit similar to My Hero Academia. Except, it's not about a story about some kid building up to be the next hero (although it acts like it just for a BIG fake protagonist decoy moment to unfurl itself in the end). Some boy encounters a girl, that at first glance looks like a sweet kid. ... Only, for her to attempt to kill the aforementioned boy in plausible cold blood. Then, it's revealed that she happens to be undercover and is working for a government (or something?) to kill others that have special abilities that are in the same vain as 'quirks' from MHA. So, does anybody out there know this animemanga?
80's/90's manga about saxophone player? Anime
Searching for a manga about a young man who plays saxophone most likely from 80s-mid 90s. It is NOT Blue Giant. This is kind of unusual because I actually found images of this series and do not know it's source and have had no luck trying to find out what it is and I am extremely curious to know more about it. I was looking at a collection of set materials from the 1998 Trigun anime and included in the scans were 4 pages of a collage of panels from a manga primarily depicting a young man with a saxophone but there were also several Black characters and a young lady with short hair also shown playing/holding saxophones. Some of the panels show the young man performing with a band including a drummer and keyboard player. The artstyle is more towards the realistic side with the saxophones drawn with great detail. It reminds me stylistically of manga from the 80's and early 90's. One of the pages includes what looks like a chapter page with English text reading: SESSION 9 "GHOST OF A CHANCE"(Take 2). I used Google Translate's phone app photo translation tool to try and translate the Japanese text that was visible in some of the panels but the image was too low quality for it to recognize any of this text. There was a hand written note on all 4 manga collage pages that the translator was able to see clearly enough to translate that roughly said "Midvalley Saxophone Reference." The 3 pages before this in the collection of scanned set materials are of the character Midvalley the Hornfreak and his saxophone and they are all dated 1998, so this manga could not have come out anytime after that. I can provide links to website where I found these set materials.
Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask for this kind of help finding a series but I wasn't really sure where to go and had success here many years ago looking for something so thought it was worth a shot. Thank you in advance for any help.
[Solved] A yuri manga and maybe anime about a girl trying to produce her dead sister's play Anime
A friend of mine says I lent her a manga series once about a girl who's trying to produce a play she found because it was made by her dead older sister, and she's always trying to emulate this older sister, such as acting all outgoing, despite not actually being like that at all. She's in a club with one other girl and two guys. She eventually starts going out with a girl (no idea if it's the girl in the club), but she (the former, I'm assuming) is trying to keep the relationship under wraps, like not wanting to kiss in public. At the end of the series they have sex, but if there's an anime adaptation it naturally cut that out. I'm swearing up and down to her I don't own anything like that and the plot doesn't sound familiar to me in the slightest, but she's insistent she borrowed the books from me and that we (or just her) even watched an anime adaptation of it. Her memory isn't super-great, so I've no clue how accurate all these details are, but this mystery is driving me nuts and I could really use some help!Edited by NaturesRose

Anime about Killer Plants Anime
I remember watching this one anime about a group of survivors going up against these killer plants after they woken up too early from hyper sleep before the monster plants can even be taken care of.
I remember the plot but...I don't know the name.
Anime/mobile game about girl and her robot Anime
Okay, so there was this anime from a few years ago that was basically about a girl and her robot (the robot was designed along the lines of those in Castle in the Sky) which name I cannot remember. I also recall seeing adds of a mobile game, thought I'm not sure if the mobile game was based on the anime, or the anime was based on the mg. I recall this anime being heavily promoted by crunchyroll
I did found this video game literally called A girl and her Robot, which does look very similar aesthtic wise, but it's not the same.
Summoning elements with kanji inscribed cards (SOLVED) Anime
There was this anime I remember from my childhood where the characters would battle using cards that had kanji relating to different "elements" (as in, water and fire and such.)
They did not summon any creatures as far as I remember, just stuff like waves of water. The kanji on the cards glowed brightly when they were activated. They might have used some sort of device to scan the cards, although I'm not sure of that part.
There was an airship battle at some point, and I think there was some evil organization against the heroes, too.Edited by Yosefu
A manga that I only remember by cover art Anime
I've been stumped in my attempt to look for a manga. The only thing I could remember from it was a picture of 2 girls and 1 boy in school uniforms (button-up shirts, ribbon, or necktie) holding an apple. The guy looked like your typical male romcom lead, the first girl had bobbed hair and was wearing a plain uniform while the other girl had long black hair and was wearing a hoodie over her uniform, earbuds, and glasses. I have nothing else on this manga and I'm kinda interested in it, so I'd really appreciate if someone could at least the image
Manga series about modern-day ninjas Anime
The series was about this ninja clan war/competition set in the modern day. The main character is a regular kid who somehow becomes the leader of a ninja clan, which included at least one ninja girl/love interest. The clans would fight and if a clan leader was defeated, the winner would take over as leader. One of the clans was animal themed and had a ninja bear. The series was mostly comedic but had some serious moments. At some point the main character loses his clan and has to restart, but that's about where I lost track of it.
