I'm mostly a fan of drama, comedy, and romance anime though I can be swayed into watching action anime if it features some elements of the genres that I take interest in. I'm pretty open to watching just about anything as long as there's enough substance to a title for me to take interest in it. If things like violence, gore, fan service, or moe are overused solely for shock value, forced fan adoration, and titillation, then I won't be latching onto an anime title for too long.
As for the "Rainy Day" pile I have on me, these are anime available at some point (past or present) within the Region 1 video market I chose to stockpile for watch in case I am inching close to my monthly data cap. But with the increasing difficulty I'm having of finding unlicensed older titles worth the time to watch, I've decided to resort to my stockpile to wow me over for anime while anything I find online for now will be for whatever Japan is currently airing.

Animation Runner Kuromi
|Watch||A young woman's dreams of working in the anime industry come true, but their not what she expected.|
|Rent||Moritaka Mashiro, a junior high school student, content to live out a relatively normal life as any other does, is persuaded by his classmate, Akito Takagi, to become an aspiring mangaka when the latter realizes his natural talent as an artist. However, Moritaka is reluctant to pursue his dream as his uncle, once a mangaka with his own serializations, died from overwork trying to regain his lost status. With Akito's help, Takagi gets another classmate and his school crush, Azuki Miho, who is an aspiring voice actress, to commit to voice in the anime adaptation of their future manga if such a thing ever comes about. However, Mashiro also proposes to Azuki, who surprisingly accepts only on the condition she will marry him when both of them have achieved their dreams. With a goal set before him, Mashiro begins a long and struggling path to become a famous mangaka.|
|Buy||Mashiro and Takagi start working with a new editor, Gorou Miura, as Hattori is assigned to another author. They must adapt quickly to his approach as well as drawing together with assistants since they must perform well on the Shonen Jack polls in order to not be discarded by the publication. Now that their work is being serialized, they must work even harder as they must satisfy an extremely demanding audience while competing with other talented authors.|
|Watch||Moritaka Mashiro and Akito Takagi have come a long way since they started making manga in middle school, but trials still await them as they head towards their goal of getting an anime adaption for one of their manga. As they continue to grow as artists and as people, they will be faced with new friends, new rivals, and new hurdles to overcome.|
Nishijo Takumi is your typical ↗NEET. He lives on top of a building inside of a ocean container box. Inside is his computer, bottles of soda, and tons of action figures from his favorite anime girl Seira. That's his whole life. One day while chatting online with his friend 'Grim', another user named 'Shogun' starts messaging him. He sends Takumi a bunch of links to pictures of people being murdered. Later that evening, Takumi walks down a hallway and sees the murder being commited by a pink haired girl who turns and says, "I wanted to see you". Troubled, he runs away carrying one of her daggers. The next day at school he sits down and his friends greet him. His female friend who has pink hair is the same girl he saw that night...
|Watch||One day, Sendo Kazuki and Takase Mizuki find themselves hijacked by their eccentric friend Kuhonbutsu Taishi (who calls them "My brother and sister") into going to a strange, crowded, noisy and smelly place--a doujinshi convention. (Think of this as a sort of Otaku no Video that deals with doujinshi rather than anime.)|
|ComiPa||Watch||See Comic Party|
|Watch||Chako and her friends can't wait for the Cosplay World Series! Their East Oizuki Academy team has earned quite a reputation throughout Japan, and she knows they can also win the world championship. Only one thing stands in their way--a lack of interest. The team doesn't have an adult sponsor, and can't keep up enrollment. As a result, they must fight rivals, find new members who want more than to see the girls disrobe, and learn to change costumes in a flash.|
|Rent||Kanji Sasahara is a first year college student. He watches a lot of Anime and reads Manga. He was thinking of joining the Manga club when another student Makoto Kohsaka strikes up a conversation with them about joining. Kanji is embarrassed and leaves. Later he visits the Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture (Aka a bunch of Otaku's). While alone in the club room, he looks up the skirt of a Haruka doll (KGNE), and is caught red handed flipping through their porn collection. He is so mortified, but finds out it was a form of Hazing and the other guys were just waiting nearby for the president to catch him in the 'act'!. "Now that we know we're the same kind" Genshiken member Madarame says, "how about you join us?"|
The continuing adventures of the university club known as "Genshiken" as older members graduate and leadership changes. What other changes are in store for this group of otaku friends?
|Watch||With the older Genshiken members having graduated, Chika Ogiue is now in charge of the club's activities, gaining new members such as another of Ohno's otaku friends Susanna Hopkins, the cross-dressing Kenjirou Hato and the stocky fujoshi Mirei Yajima.|
|Buy||A new school term has started and all of the university clubs are out to recruit new members. Genshiken is no exception to needing new members, should the anti-otaku Saki-san allow it. Genshiken gets two new members, both rejects from other clubs. Kuchiki, having been rejected by Saki-san the previous year, returns after leaving the anime club and everyone is stunned when Saki-san lets him in. The manga club then pawns off one of its troublesome female members, Ogiue-san. She states she hates otaku, especially female otaku with their "homo" obsession for yaoi and shounen ai materials. Despite this, she's there to join their club. Will Genshiken survive its two newest and strangest members?|
