One way for an anime to begin is with the protagonist joining a group that's dedicated to a common goal. While it might feel formulaic, these types of stories can actually be wonderful because they quickly introduce a wide range of characters who are united in purpose but not necessarily in personality. In fact, it's often the personality clashes that are the most fun. 

What are some great anime where the protagonist joins a group? If you're looking for something gritty, you might want to check out Black Lagoon, an anime where the protagonist joins a group that initially kidnapped him. For something with a little more humor to it, you can watch Amagi Brilliant Park, a show in which the main character begins working for a theme park that's in danger of being shut down. No matter what you're looking for, there's bound to be something here that appeals to you.
