Ecchi comedies are perhaps one of the funniest brands of humor anime could ever give us; who doesn't love making fun of something as awkward as being sexy? Ao-chan Can't Study! is one of those series that touches on sexual topics while also making fun of them at the same time. Ao was raised by her father, a man who built his career off of writing raunchy novels. Trying to move away from his lifestyle, Ao only focuses on her studies, hoping to avoid anything weird. But when she's pursued by "King Normie" Kijima for romance, she has a difficulty keeping her mind off of anything else. 

There are plenty of ecchi comedies out there just waiting to be added to your watch list. Shows like To Love-Ru have very similar storylines with aggressive love interests who just don't seem to want to give up while not being too sexual. There's also series that aren't really ecchi at all if you're looking for something safe to watch at work. Series like Tsuredure Children discuss the awkwardness of accepting your feelings and learning how to like someone.

Takatoshi Tsuda isn't having a very easy time at his new high school. On his first day of high school he's delayed for his first class after being pulled aside by the student council president, Shino Amakusa, for his uniform. When Shino decides to apologize for making him late, she offers him a very important position; to take the vice president beside her. Recently turned co-ed, Ousai Private Academy is in desperate need of a male's point of view. Having Takatoshi on the council would help suffice that, but it's clear he doesn't want it. Nonetheless, he's seated on the council with Shino and two other very strange girls. A humorous, ecchi anime with humor akin to Ao-chan Can't Study!, Seitokai Yakuindomo is a perfect follow up for your watch list.

Telling your crush you like them is always a challenge, and no one seems to know that challenge better than Tenma Tsukamoto.
