Anime / Manga
Below are some of my favorite series - definitely worth a watch!
Drastic tonal shifts from cute & light-hearted to macabre & suspenseful. Multiple seasons, time looping throughout.
Lina Inverse & her companions travel their world, fighting villains & general adventure throughout.
Based off an erotic dating sim (series forgoes that aspect, thankfully), re-imagining of historic figures in a master/servant relationship, fighting to secure the Holy Grail.
My first Anime - Tenchi, a self-insert OC, and his harem from space. Multiple seasons, moderate ecchi throughout.
Short, 5 episode OVA, with a few video games, following Yuna and her friends. Mostly light-hearted & somewhat ecchi, but relatively tame.
Vash the Stampede and his friends he meets along the way, striving to save the day. Starts out very light hearted, gets serious toward the end, and finishes nicely.
