For the last few years there's been quite a lot of propagandanime: series that are set on a premise clearly meant to teach the viewer something valuable about the mundaneity of life. This does not count for shows like NHK Ni Youkoso! that simply tell a story with a redemption arc of NEET or something, that's just a straightforward plot, but when regardless of a plot the premise to set a background for the plot serves as a reminder of the viewpoints of a marginal lifestyle. Examples are Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai that are meant to exemplify the marital bliss to an otaku audience so that people would start fucking again, or Kobayashi-san Chi No Maid Dragon that exemplifies that an allegory for autism is not necessarily entirely unfit to normal society as long as they can be guarantined to a special role.
