10: Horimiya the missing pieces
Most Otakus are already aware that Horimiya is one of the best anime romances with a lot of comedy but I preferred its recently released series “Horimiya the Missing Pieces,” because it’s full of laughter and some romance.
They have created this spin-off type anime series to include the missing manga scenes to fill the gaps between Miyamura and Hori san’s love tale. It’s focused on short high school lovey-dovey moments between couples that were missed in the parent anime.Overall it will make you laugh out loud with the characters’ teenage quirky moments.

Season 2 is more focused on Rudeu’s school life than his adventure to find his scattered family. To be precise, it’s even more focused on Rudeus curing his erectile dysfunctionality with the help of Sylphy. Man, each episode is a banger of laughs and quirky dialogues of a lousy Isekai hero.
