GAMERS! is one of those games that gets a little too real for those of us in love with video games. The leading character, Keita Amano, is often scouted to be a competitive gamer, but reveals that he doesn't play to win; he simply plays to enjoy any and all games he just happens to take interest in. The show ultimately revolves around themes of love triangles and typical teenage confusion all while characters bond over their love for video games.

HINAMATSURI is a popular anime that combines the Slice of Life genre with the supernatural as a strange girl named Hina randomly appears in the home of a yakuza member named Nitta. Hina has some incredible powers, which is pretty useful for a yakuza member like Nitta, but it doesn't mean that she comes without her problems. The show gives us a glimpse at what their strange life together looks like, and it's definitely worth the watch.
