Because the great music in the anime, I’d like to recommend the Frontier series.
Anime: Happy Sugar Life

When she meets Shio Koube(another girl), she decides that Shio is her true love, and that she will not hesitate to threaten, imprison or kill for love. This is a controversial Yuri Anime. Satou Matsuzaka is a truly complex and interesting character.
Yuki is an innocent and childish third year student at Megurigaoka High School. She has cute pink hair, and often wears a strange hat in order to cheer up ther fellow School Living Club members. The color of her school uniform was also different from the others students in her grade. The anime is somewhat psychological and weird. Someone loves it a lot, and someone think the anime is a disaster. I don’t want to spoil it, so be careful when you decide to watch.
Tomoka Minato is a lovely pink-hair girl, a 6th year student in junior school. She is the captain of the girls’ basketball team.
