    Literature clubs are a common trope in slice-of-life anime, but Senryuu Shoujo offers a fun twist on the concept. The protagonist doesn't communicate using words - instead, she communicates using senryuu, a form of haiku. She isn't the only interesting character in the literature club - there's also a former delinquent trying to lead a straightforward life. This anime will follow their daily lives and club experiences.

    Chihayfuru is an underrated but excellent series about a teenage girl named Chihaya who is possessed by a singular goal - to be the greatest karuta player in the world. Building a team isn't easy, however, because not many people are actually interested in playing a card game based on classic Japanese poetry. What's more, her childhood friend who actually loves karuta refuses to continue playing. Season Three will see Chihaya continue her quest toward karuta glory.

    Mob Psycho 100 II

    Mob Psycho 100 is an incredible anime that brings together a variety of genres, including comedy, action, supernatural, and slice of life. Season Two continues the adventures of Mob, a twelve-year-old psychic who works under a surprisingly kind and helpful con artist in a ghost exorcism business. Together, the two of them tackle the challenges of everyday life - Mob is dealing with middle school crushes and popularity contests, while Reigen has to field worried emails from his mother about what he's doing with his life - but also take on supernatural enemies, and human beings who want to use their psychic powers for evil.

    If you loved the first season, you can't miss the second one - it's even better.

    Heads up, Aggretsuko fans, a new season is coming out in 2019! Though created by Sanrio, Aggretsuko's themes are best appreciated by working adults. It takes place in an office populated by cute anthropomorphic animals who have to deal with all the same problems that people have to deal with in real life, from romantic problems to workplace discrimination. Retsuko is a seemingly mild-mannered red panda who channels all of her frustration into hardcore metal karaoke. It's a surprisingly insightful show that's still every bit as adorable as it looks, so if you haven't seen the first season, now's the time to catch up.
