Absurdity of middle school girls life
It have been a while since any absurd comedic anime that made me chuckled or laugh like crazy since Nichijou. From several review i saw, this anime is kinda like hidden gem that people brushed off because of how pure & innocent the OP the series (setup like yuri drama anime). This anime will subvert your expectation from 1st episodes with sheer amount of absurdity that you dont expect.
One key feature of this series is probably the way series is being animated (you can see on thumbnail above) which tend go various weird face just to enhance the emotional impact of the joke / shock. It might turn off some people because it kinda look scary once a while because of the distorted face design. As for other aspect, there is nothing good aside from maybe wacky personality of all girls / side characters. This is pretty staple 4 koma (4 panels comic) where it deliver joke in short jab.
This is absurd, although i will say that it didnt retain full comedy through the series like i wanted (meaning there is couple of parts of episode that is really heart warming). Regardless, i had a good laugh through out the series.
Alternative : Nichijou & Azumanga Daioh pretty much. If you dont mind pervert joke, probably Detroit Metal City is similar style. As for grounded school life comedy, D-Frag and Love Lab came to my mind.

Straight from get go I will clarified that I specifically search for ecchi tag (nudity / suggestive / fan service) anime and stumbled upon this. By genre although, harem ecchi is pretty much trashy genre so you pretty much put much lower standard when trying to watch them. And i dont mind watching them as long as fan service not getting too much in the way into plot or story progression.
Turn out I was totally wrong. This is pretty your basic harem protagonist that "accidentally stumbled" and put into awkward positional bare naked lady. There are a lot of girl type, which is the usual typical harem cardboard cutout template from ghost, ninja, cat girl, normal school girl, a loli, military / samurai and big jugg milf type. A big saving grace though, this is active protagonist. He basically a walking gary stu (invincible OP male) who can beat any evil spirits with his punch (seem similar to another character). Most of the story isnt about ghost hunting, i would say that this is pretty much typical school life type anime with many fantasy and ecchi elements added to it.
Again, if you dont like harem & ecchi, you might turned off by this. After so many trashy isekai anime around, it is kinda nice to see a famous genre from back in 2000s to pop up again once a while. Although dont expect something grand, it is just simple anime with decent MC & main girl.
Alternative : A better version is probably To Love Ru series (although first one quite bland) and maybe Monster Musume. As for onsen harem comedy similarity, probably Love Hina (very old anime) pretty close. As for MC who beat enemy with punch... that pretty much To Aru series (not ecchi, but a lot of embarrassing moment as well)

As usual, im always search new anime to watch by setting several filter (mostly finishing 2017 - 2018 anime atm) and a genre tag. For this i choose horror, which lead this infamous anime adaptation which.... if you know the original source material, you will be very disappointed. At first i thought that horror is one of the hardest genre to be animated, so maybe i will watch this with much lower expectation.
But it wasnt enough, because this adaptation didnt bring the original to justice. I dont mind for anime not able to animate the intricate and detailed artwork from source material, but it done the worse job in adapting by CUTTING THE STORY SO SHORT. So if you have enough chapter for... lets say 24 episodes, you dont simply shorten everything to fit into 12 episodes air time. Because it will ruin the story telling and pacing. There are many short stories in whole season that didnt feel resolve and cliffhanging ending at the part it became much more interesting. Quality > Quantity.
Sure, there are some part of the anime that is genuinely creepy and horror, but majority of it arent worth the time because there isnt much pay off from watching them. Since it is anthology of many short story, there isnt any overarching story that it can build up into.
Alternative : I dont watch horror, but if you really wanted some long term horror, there is Ghost Hunt and Shiki (infamous for weird artstyle though). If you wanted something is more episodic, i think Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl) and maybe Kaidan Restaurant (horror kids story) might be better narrative wise. But if you wanted something supernatural, i think Mushishi and maybe Shinsekai Yori fit the bill.
