Senryuu Girl is one of those adorable anime series you just can't get out of your head. Following the story of Yukishiro Nanako, a seemingly normal high school girl with a strange quirk; she can only write in senryuu poems. With this being her only means of communication, it's obvious to see how she'd be considered an outcast amongst her peers. Thankfully, she has the ex-delinquent Busujima Eiji to keep her company as the two work together to revive their school's Literature Club.

Fortunately for anime lovers everywhere, anime series that are just as cute as Senryuu Girl are abundant. From classic tales like Clannad which are all about delinquents who want a better life and strange girls trying to revive long-dead school clubs to Haganai, where a group of outcasts make their own club just for them, you have a lot to choose from! We've narrowed it down to thirteen you absolutely must see if you're a fan of Senryuu Girl

  • Hachiman Hikigaya clearly isn't one of those people that look on the brighter side of life. In fact, he's quite the opposite, firmly believing that no one is truly happy and that the fleeting joy of youth is just a lie. After writing a negative essay on modern social relationships, his teacher forces him to join the Volunteer Service Club; a group of students who work to help other classmates achieve their goals by assisting them with their issues. For someone who wants nothing to do with other people, Hachiman is the last person to want to help others. However, stuck with the only other member, Yukino Yukinoshita, he begins to grow into his own. If you like character development and a great deal of high school humor, as seen in Senryuu Girl, then My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU is a perfect series to add to your watch list.

    • Have you ever signed up for something, but you weren't exactly sure what it was? Hirasawa Yui knows this better than anyone after signing up for the "Light Music Club" without even being able to play an instrument. Needing her to stay in the club so that they won't be disbanded, members Ritsu, Mio, and Tsumugi work together to help Yui discover her place among their band. Placed as the guitarist, Yui must learn her instrument before their debut at the school festival. With a ticking clock always in the background, the series goes over the various troubles with learning something new as a high school student. A story about friendship and working together to achieve a common goal, K-On! is a perfect follow up to Senryuu Girl

      • When senior members graduate, it always tends to take a toll on the younger students left behind, but now on knows this issue more than Takezou, who is now the only member of the Koto club. With a new school year to look forward to, or possibly dread, Takezou must take up the task of finding new members or else his club will be terminated for good. When a strange student rushes into the classroom and demands to be a part of his team, Takezou is taken aback, but also a little grateful. Despite this new member's abrupt entrance and stark personality, perhaps there is still hope to save the Koto club! Revolving around school clubs with an emphasis on friendship, Stop This Sound! is an excellent follow up series to Senryuu Girl

        • Keita Amano is a casual gamer; serious about playing games, but not too focused on winning them. For him, games are meant to be fun, and what's the point in doing that if you're suffering to win all the time? When he meets one of the most popular girls in school, Karen Tendou, he finds himself awestruck. She discovers his passion for gaming and asks if he would be willing to join the game club. However, when he arrives, he realizes how competitive everyone is. Seeing as this isn't how he particularly likes to play games, Keita finds himself unsure as to whether or not he really wants to be a part of the club, despite his obvious interest in Karen. A romantic comedy filled with games, Gamers! is an adorable series that has a lot of the same humor Senryuu Girl does.
