Recommend some stuff for people who are tired of coomer shit being everywhere. You can recommend anything, from music, to tv shows, anime, movies, books, etc. Disclaimer: this doesn't mean media that can't handle adult themes or that it has to be 100% children-only. Just media that doesn't feel gross or icky. Your milleage may vary. If you recommend something try to explain why you liked it.

Maiko-san chi no makanai-san is adorable so far. Protagonist Kiyo and her best friend Sumire want to become maiko after seeing them at a school fair. They both apply for a school and get admitted, but Kiyo isn't cut out for it after all, so she becomes their cook instead. It's mostly about what a maiko's training entails and lots of cooking stuff.

Gyaru to kyouryuu is great and super relaxing. Is about a gyaru who has a part-time job at a konbini and her friend dinosaur who doesn't speak. The anime mixes multiple styles of animations, including live action and the op and ed songs are super cute. I watched it during a very bad misadventure with my schizo meds and it kept me sane for an entire week, very recommended.

Been watching Moomin (1990s TV series) lately and find it to be pretty comfy and nostalgic. It's about this Moomintroll named Moomin going on adventures and having fun with his friends and family. I have a love for traditional hand-drawn animations/illustrations and this show reminds me of Winnie the Pooh to which I enjoyed watching as a little kid. You can find full episodes on YouTube.

This is really vague cuz plenty of media, if not majority, isn't coomerish and doesn't have sexual fan service, from adventure movies to horror to period dramas. Are you looking for specifically the wholesome slice of life stuff or like romance without sex scenes and anime without big tiddy chicks? I don't think they're hard to find.

On a similar note, Ebine Yamaji - the queen of lesbian manga (though sadly not very prolific). Haven't read her more recent comics, but I trust she hasn't gone the coomer route. I've read Love My Life and Free Soul and can recommend them. Just keep away from the LML movie as it has made the heroines look much more femme/attractive to the average viewer. I think the movie had a much more cutesy tone, too

Gravity Falls is definitely in the same category. Doesn't do pervy "for the parents wink wink" jokes and while there's an unrequited crush storyline it's handled very sensibly imo.

Haven't read Nana, but this is totally how I feel about Paradise Kiss. Her portrayal of Yukari's growth and relationship with George is so honest.

Some recommendations from different genres. I think almost all of them reference sex in some way, but I just tried to think of some I like that aren't male gaze-y:
>Mare of Easttown (2021)
Crime drama about the murder of a teenage mother after another girl in the community has already gone missing. The main detective is played by Kate Winslet who does really well. References to prostitution, and assault and there's one scene that has mild nudity, but I thought the treatment of the female detective and victims was refreshing, not too explicit or voyeuristic like a lot of crime dramas.
>Downton Abbey (2010-2015)
Not sure if this is cheating since it's a period drama that spans the early 20th century, beginning with the sinking of the Titanic and touching on major events like World War I, the Spanish flu epidemic, etc. Deals with sex and rape, but it's more about how they would have affected women at the time.
>Kath and Kim (2002-2005)
Comedy about suburban Australia. Definitely raunchy with a lot of sex jokes but it helps that the two main actresses created and wrote for the show.
>Pushing Daisies (2007-2009)
About a pie-maker who solves murders with a private eye because he can bring people back to life for one minute by touching them. If he touches them again, they die permanently, but if they're brought back for more than one minute, someone else will die. Quirky fantasy with pretty set design that's sort of like Amelie if it was a mystery of the week show. Some sexual humor.

Hacks really, really impressed me. It's about an older Vegas comedian and the zoomer comedy writer she's forced to collab with, but it steers away from easy or obvious jokes – it's mostly about how hard it is for women to succeed in a public field, and about them realizing how much they have in common. Really amazing criticism of how women are constantly sexualized too, especially in one scene later in the series. Watching Jean Smart rip apart a horny bro comedian is fucking golden.

Anti hypersexualized in a dark way rather than a wholesome way, but Helter Skelter (2012) and the manga it's based on are amazing takes on what becoming the hypersexualized goddess men want does to a woman's soul. It's about a supermodel at the apex of her career who's starting to literally and figuratively fall apart from surgery, pressure, abuse, etc. Really dark, but really good.

ayrt, and YES, I love Sakuran too! Haven't seen the movie yet b/c I know I'll love it and I want to save it for my birthday, lol, but the manga is amazing. Ninagawa is a genius, and so are Moyocco Anno and Kyoko Okazaki. I wish like hell more josei manga got translated, and that there was more awareness of these works in the wider world – there's so many brilliant Japanese women making incredible art that gets lost in the river of shitty porny anime. I want to live in a world where like, Lisa Taddeo and Gillian Flynn have seen Helter Skelter. I want Ninagawa to be a name like Takashi Miike is.

Anyway, Sakuran totally fits the thread too! FYI for those who haven't read/watched: It's about a 1700s courtesan who is very sought after and also completely miserable. Really coarse and miserable and constantly trying to leave. Another amazing look at what Being The Waifu actually does to a human person.

Anon, you are reading my damn mind. I LOVE This One Summer. You're so completely right, it could not have come from anyone but women. I reread it a couple months ago and just marveled over little details like Windy summoning up the courage to tell Rose she's being sexist, the mom trying so hard to hide her pain over the miscarriage, Rose and Windy joking about growing boobs. So many little moments that immediately reminded me of things I experienced at that age. Have you read Skim? It's the book they did before TOS. A little more downbeat, but it's just as good. I actually used to work in a bookstore, and I spent a whole summer between school reading eeeeverything I could from both Tamakis. If you can find it, Mariko did this ya graphic novel called Emiko Superstar that's definitely a little more mainstream, but perfectly captures the feeling of being an earnest teen girl who doesn't realize she's being creeped on by a scuzzy art dude until it's almost too late.

Okay lol, to address the thread at large: Everything by Jillian and/or Mariko Tamaki is an amazing and honest look at girl/womanhood.

Super Cub! The anime came out last season, but it’s based on a light novel. It’s definitely a show/novel for low cc motorbike otaku, but in a “I love the freedom of riding my bike in nature” way as opposed to the “look how many autistic facts I can tell you way”. While I’m fairly certain that the main characters are girls because the target audience is men, it’s not in an annoying or coomer way at all. There’s not much plot, extremely daily life comfy. Might border on boring to some people though.

The author is female and the mc is a flawed loser that looks like a delinquent. The female mc grunts like a a legitimate deaf disabled person, so moe, soooo coomer.

Speaking of self-inserts, My Next Life As A Villaines is cute. It's an isekai in which a teen weeb is reborn as the doomed villaines in an otome game. It's 100% wish fulfillment and the female protag is annoyingly clueless, but it's also just really wholesome. Another female oriented isekai I like even better is Ascendance of a Bookworm.

Michael Palin's travel documentaries are comfy, superbly done, intelligent and very genuine. He's a regarded as a national treasure in Britain for both his contributions to film/television and his great reputation for kindness and patience. 'Around The World In 80 Days' was his first and most well-known and, although it's a little amateurish to begin with as he gets used to being followed by a camera and pressured to react, it really comes into its own and produces some wonderful, humorous and touching moments. He has this great ability to connect with and charm others, which is just delightful to watch. It being filmed in 1988 adds another layer of interest, too - seeing how much the world has changed in a little over 30 years is fascinating.

He's made 8 others since then and from what I've heard, they are all just as captivating.

Lucky getting to spend your summer reading them. I also have to rec my hands down fav anime to all the ladies here: A Place Further then The Universe/Sora yori mo Tōi Basho. You might think oh cute girls doing cute things but no! Not at all, its beautiful, well written, the young girls are like actual young teenage girls who all come together to support one another in helping their friend find her mom who went missing in Antarctica. Spoiler-ish the last few episodes will destroy you emotionally but again well done, not scrotey at all, I love this anime so much and have to let everyone know!

I love Wolf Children. Watched it with my mom and it became a bonding moment. Some ideas for something similar? It's about a single mom raising two human/wolf hybrids.

I just finished watching sonny boy a few days ago. It's abstract and some people might find it "2deep4u" or pretentious but I don't feel like it ever tried to be that, its just taking a different path with story telling and the message they try to convey is quite simple if you just sit down with some patience. I particularly enjoyed the relationships between the main trio, there's no dogshit romantic triangle where both girls try to gun for the socially inept male mc, instead the friendship is really well handled especially in the latter half between Mizuho and Nagara, you can tell they are two people who support each other completely platonically and it's wonderful! If you watch this I hope you like it, it's only 12 eps so it's pretty easy to finish in one sitting.

Aki-sensei is such a random coomerbait character but thankfully she doesn't play a big role. I don't know what her deal is honestly. It's hinted that she's a student pretending to be a teacher pretending to be a villain so maybe the way she looks like is like a fantasy of hers.

It’s a well-known classic already, but I can’t recommend Princess Tutu enough. It’s great, from the soundtrack to the dramatic screenplay to everything else.

Other animu recs where I can’t recall anything coomerish: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou aka Daily Lives of High School Boys, Mononoke, Dennou Coil, Genius Party (experimental short movies but some of them are really good), Sakamoto Desu ga?(comedy), Kaiji, Hyouge Mono (it’s…different, I recall lots of tea ceremonies and philosophy)

I don’t usual watch many western cartoons because a lot of times the art style annoys me. I gave this a watch a few years back though and really liked it. I think it’s a fun premise and the triangle is kind of a neat villain.

Aww, nona. Reading it at a young age is definitely a special experience, but I totally recommend checking it out now! Honestly, when I've talked about it with friends who also first read it as young girls, one of the things we all agree on is how it's best suited for adult women. Not because of racy content, but because of its mature look at relationships and growth. Also, it's a very rare example of a manic pixie dream boy in the most classic sense – George is a great character, but he's definitely there to catalyze Yukari's growth. And it's a pretty quick read! be careful with scan sites though, a lot are missing random chapters

I love Full moon so much. I recently came back to the series because I found out that the two voice actors who played the shinigami died in 2013.

I know a good amount of anons already know about them, but I highly recommend all the movies from Cartoon Saloon. They're an Irish studio and one of the few that still does hand-drawn animation. Their work is absolutely gorgeous and intricate. As a bonus most of their main characters are strong-willed girls who get things done. Their work is not 100% carefree, there are moments that are bittersweet or address violence (though never explicitly gory), but overall I'm always happy to watch them.

Kageki Shoujo is really enjoyable and all the characters are great. There are 2 things that might not make it a perfect fit for this thread, but it's close. So anons can decide:
>We see a flashback where one of the main characters is harassed by her mom's boyfriend. He tries (and fails) to enter her room and then we see her being kissed by him as a child, which is obviously disgusting but the show treats it as the abuse it is
>At one point another girl says she had a goal to dress like a sexy/busty anime character which is completely out of character for her, but the comment is quickly dropped/forgotten past like a 2-minute scene
Other than that it's all about the girls wanting to improve their acting/singing, supporting one another, growing up and hoping to become famous entertainers for a primarily female audience.

Different anon, the translation for the manga only go up to chapter 14.3 (unless someone knows differently than I do). Rawkuma has it raw on their website that goes up to chapter 36. Be warn, there are a lot of ads on Rawkuma.

I watched The Secret of Kells when I was in middle school with my class and I loved it but I had forgotten its name so thanks nonny for making me google Cartoon Saloon, their other movies look amazing!
