Relax~ Let’s watch some anime!

What I love most about Anime is that there’s always something mellowed down and calm to watch.
Especially when I really need one to chase the anger or sadness away.
They would just melt away reality and make me so relaxed and happy.
So, why not share them?
Who knows.. maybe you need to wind down as well.

These are usually those without much conflict.
As you know, stories need a conflict or even a few at a time to the plot.
But, the ones in this list only contain “problems” which are so trivial, it can sometimes turn out to be really silly.
They’re meant to be a very light-hearted paced anime.

Can’t recall all of them, but, these are my faves~

First of all, I’m currently watching this new anime.
Filled with nothingness, but, ahhh… so cute!



Non Non Biyori
The story takes place in the countryside village of Asahigaoka, where many conveniences are several miles away and the school consists of only five students, each of whom come from different grades of elementary and middle school. Hotaru Ichijo, a fifth grader from Tokyo, tranfers into Asahigaoka Branch School and adjusts to countryside life with her new friends.


Here comes the old ones~

>> Has a season 2

Four Japanese high school girls join Sakuragaoka Girl’s High School’s light music club to try to save it from being disbanded. However, they are the only members of the club. At first, Yui Hirasawa has no experience playing musical instruments or reading sheet music as she is only familiar with playing the castanets, but she eventually becomes an excellent guitar player. From then on, Yui, along with bassist Mio Akiyama, drummer Ritsu Tainaka, and keyboardist Tsumugi Kotobuki spend their school days practicing, performing, and hanging out together. The club is overseen by music teacher Sawako Yamanaka, who eventually becomes their homeroom teacher as well during their final year of high school. In their second year, the club welcomes another guitarist, underclassman Azusa Nakano. After Azusa joins they gain more structure and begin to practice more.

After their third year, Yui, Ritsu, Mio and Tsumugi graduate and enroll into a university. There they join its light music club alongside three other students: Akira Wada, Ayame Yoshida, and Sachi Hayashi. Meanwhile, Azusa continues to run the high school light music club alongside Yui’s sister, Ui, their classmate, Jun Suzuki, and new members Sumire Saitō and Nao Okuda.

>> Has a season 2

Tamayura centers around a young girl named Fū Sawatari who moves to Takehara, Hiroshima to begin her first year of high school. Her late father grew up in Takehara and this is her first time back in the town in five years. Fū enjoys photography and is often engrossed with taking pictures with her father’s old Rollei 35S film camera. A shy girl, Fū tries her best to make friends early on, spurred on by her childhood friend Kaoru Hanawa. She quickly becomes friends with two other girls, Maon Sakurada and Norie Okazaki. After a year has passed, Fū forms a photography club and meets fellow photographer Kanae Mitani.

Acchi Kocchi

The serious-minded Io and the pure-hearted Tsumiki feel they never want to be parted, but haven’t become a couple yet. More than friends but less than lovers, they develop an awkward quasi-romance.

Usagi Drop (this one is a little on the touching side, a sweet relationship between a dad and his daughter)

When 30-year-old Daikichi returns home for his grandfather’s funeral he learns about the existence of Rin, his grandfather’s illegitimate six-year-old daughter by an unknown mother. The girl is an embarrassment to all his relatives and is treated as an outcast. Annoyed by their attitude, Daikichi decides to take care of Rin himself, even though he is single and has no experience raising a child. As Rin becomes part of his life, Daikichi experiences the hardship of a single parent. He is befriended by the single mother of Kouki Nitani, a friend Rin meets in nursery school, who gives him advice on raising Rin. After a year has passed, Daikichi acknowledges his sacrifices for Rin have been worth it. The first half of the series focuses on Daikichi’s perspective and struggles raising Rin. Ten years later, Rin is a high-school student and the remainder of the series focuses on her trying to figure out how to deal with her feelings for Kouki, and her decision for a career.

Kimi to Boku
>> Has a season 2

The story revolves around four teens — the good-looking twins Yūta and Yūki Asaba, the effeminate Shun Matsuoka, and the class head Kaname Tsukahara — who have known each other since early childhood. While they are not necessarily good or bad friends, they continue to hang out well into high school. The half-Japanese transfer student Chizuru Tachibana joins the circle of friends in this comedy about the everyday life of adolescence. It does not have any cliche romance or flamboyant fantasy but is about out light-hearted humorous story about high school friends and attachment. Friendship forms because this group loves each other’s company even with all their different personalities or perspective. Both of the twins will give everyone a hard time but they are really cool. Shun with his elegant behavior, Kaname with his hot temper, Chizuru with his fun loving side..



Take a deep breath and relax~

  1. Anime is awesome, I’ve always loved it since I saw spirited away in high school for the first time:) I haven’t heard of any of the ones you mentioned, But as soon as I saw the pictures and Japanese text, I felt relief-it’s true! It calms you down so much, I hadn’t realised it. Like you get to be part of that world for the time you watch it, it’s really magical.
    Anime I liked were maison ikkoku, cardcaptors, dragonball z, fushigi yugi and love hina. Ahhh, the memories!:-)

    • Wooooo wow.. those are pretty old-school, although, they were great anime as well, but, what stopped you from watching anime?
      I love Spirited Away as well and some of the other anime titles from the same maker!
      There are a lot of popular or well-known anime known globally, but, most, if not all of these in my list are low-key, which I guess, is because of how “boring” they tend to be to most people.
      But, like my reason for watching these, they’re meant to be laid back. ^_^

      • Haha yes that they are! I suppose once I got into uni I started watching J-drama instead (they had that at the Japanese club), and with anime I did still watch it but rarely you know? Like I’d borrow grave of the fireflies from the library, or I went with a friend to see arietty. Also I am more a games person than a film person, so that’s another reason. Mmm fair enough, the fact that not everyone likes them but you do makes you unique haha!

  2. I am just loving K-on. Tamayura and tamaura more aggressive were a bit to tame for me.. Not suer yet about non non biyori only has been one ep. for me though did not catch me much but with most anme it takes about 3 to 5 eps. to make it work.
    Love anime, watching loads again this season, but a lot of pantsu this time around
