Need to be up to date with animes now

As title states, I am currently behind on anime that released before and during summer. It would be greatly appreciated if you would recommend me the best.

Note: Must be of this year's summer.

No nudity, yaoi or yuri please. No second or third season continuation series. I'm open-minded so the genre won't bother me. Thank you.

Midnight.

Hataraku Maou-sama! was awesome. Very funny and had lots of action. Tamako Market seems alright but not my thing. Minami-ke, I have to watch out the other seasons still.
What I will definitely take into watching are: TWGOK, maybe Kotura-san and obviously, Hataraku Maou-sama.

Thank you Sackett!

I recommend:

Silver Spoon Slice-of-life/coming of age story about a city boy going to an agricultural high school.
Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi "artsy" and somewhat dark show about a 12 year old girl who can help zombies rest in peace.
Gatchaman Crowds. MC is nuts but in a good way and could remind some of Tiger and Bunny
Kiniro Mosaic. Very cute show about three Japanese girls and two British exchange students.

Granted I haven't watched three or four of these, so all I can do is give you a synopsis.

Date A-Live: action, comedy, romance. No harem in this despite the many girls. Closest thing is a love triangle of sorts.
"Itsuka Shido is a high school boy. On the last day of the spring holidays, an explosion destroys the town and a girl in armor appears in front of him. Shido's sister-in-law, Kotori, tells him that the girl is called "Special Disasterous Designated Creature: Spirit", which causes a timespace quake. Kotori disclosed that she is the commander of the anti-spirit organization Ratatosk and orders him to go out on a date with the spirit girl. Kotori says, 'I don't ask you to beat the spirit. Just let her fall in love with you and save the world.'" (taken from anime ultima)

Blood Lad:
"Staz is the vampire boss of a section of the demon world, but he has little interest in human blood. He's more infatuated with Japanese culture. When he learns that Yanagi Fuyumi, a Japanese teenage girl, accidentally wanders into the demon city, he jumps to the occasion. However, while Staz deals with an intruder on his turf, the oblivious Fuyumi is killed by a monster and becomes a wandering ghost. The disappointed Staz vows to her that he will find a way to bring Fuyumi back to life." (taken from anime ultima)

Dangonronpa: The Animation:
"A group of 15 elite high school students are gathered at a very special, high class high school. To graduate from this high school essentially means you'll succeed in life, but graduating is very difficult. The school is presided over by a bear called Monokuma, and he explains to them that their graduation hinges around committing a murder. The only way to graduate is to kill one of your classmates and get away with it. If the other classmates discover the identity of the killer, the killer is the only one executed. However, if they fail to catch the killer, only the killer graduates and the others are annihilated. Which of the 15 will survive the bloodbath to come?" (taken from anime ultima)

Devil Survivor 2: The Animation: based off the game of the same name. Obviously apocalyptic, with many deaths
"Mysterious invaders called the Septentriones arrive in Japan and begin attacking the country on a Sunday. To fight back, the heroes in Devil Survivor 2 signed a pact with the devil to become the Thirteen Devil Messengers. The Septentriones show up at least once a day and you have a time limit of seven days to defeat them."(anime ultima again)

Rosen Maiden (2013): Highly recommend this one!
"Jun Sakurada, a middle school shut-in refuses to go to school after being traumatized by an embarrassing incident at school. One day, he receives a letter asking “yes or no”, and chose “yes”, meeting the living doll Shinku and the events of the original Rozen Maiden series unfolding. However, what would have happened if he had chosen “no”? Although he overcame his shut-in nature, this Jun can’t find a place where he belongs. Then, Shinku suddenly appears in this world where “Rozen Maidens” aren’t supposed to exist; what will their new encounter bring?!" (taken from anime ultima)

Teen Romantic Comedy Snafu(or Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru):
"This romantic comedy revolves around an antisocial high school student named Hikigaya Hachiman with a distorted view on life and no friends or girlfriend. When he see his classmates talking excitedly about living their adolescent lives, he mutters, They're a bunch of liars. When he is asked about his future dreams, he responds, Not working. A teacher gets Hachiman to join the volunteer service club, which happens to have the school's prettiest girl, Yukinoshita Yukino." (taken from anime ultima)

Free!:
"The story revolves around Haruka Nanase, a boy who has always loved to be immersed in water, and to swim in it. Before graduating from elementary school, he participated in a swimming tournament along with his fellow swimming club members, Makoto Tachibana, Nagisa Hazuki, and Rin Matsuoka. After achieving victory, each of the boys went their separate ways. Time passed, and in the middle of their uneventful high school lives Rin appears and challenges Haruka to a match, showing Haruka his overwhelming power. Not wanting it to end like this, Haruka, gathers together Makoto and Nagisa once again and brings a new member named Rei Ryugazaki to create the Iwatobi High School Swimming Club in order to defeat Rin." (taken from anime ultima)

Hyperdimension Neptunia: The Animation: based off the game of the same name.
"This is Gamindustri. Beings called the Goddesses rule the countries of this unreal world. The four Goddesses govern four states: Planeptune, Lastation, Lowee, and Leanbox. For many long years, these countries fought each other over the Shares, the source of the Goddess power.

However, fearful that the conflict would pointlessly erode their countries' strength, the Goddesses signed a Friendship Treaty forbidding them from taking Shares by force.

Under the treaty, the Goddesses and their younger sisters took a step forward to a new stage in their relations. It was the dawn of a new, dynamic era marked occasionally by shared laughter, disputes as well cooperation.

What does the future hold in store for Gamindustri?" (taken from my anime list)

Karneval:
"Nai searches for someone important to him, with only an abandoned bracelet as a clue. Gareki steals and pick-pockets to get by from day to day. The two meet in a strange mansion where they are set-up, and soon become wanted criminals by military security operatives. When Nai and Gareki find themselves desperate in a hopeless predicament, they encounter none other than the country's most powerful defense organization—'Circus'!!" (taken from anime ultima)

Majestic Prince:
"In the latter half of 21st century, humans leave the Earth and begin to live in space. In order to adapt to the environment in space and deal with the hostile aliens in Jupiter, genetically engineered children called "Princes" are artificially raised and trained to be pilots of armed robots "AHSMB (Advanced High Standard Multipurpose Battle Device). This is a story about one of the teenage "Princes", Hitachi O Izuru, who studies in an academic city Grandzehle. " (taken from anime news network)

Second Hataraku Maou-sama!
Probably tired of hearing me say this: Valvrave the Liberator

If you are going to watch TWGOK make sure to watch the Tenri OVA.
