What're some comfy anime series?

I'm relatively new to anime and am looking for something slow paced in story line, and atmospheric in terms of soundtrack/sound design or animation. Only ones I can think of are Mushishi and House of Five Leaves.

My office sent all of my stuff home with me yesterday, and I'm working from home until further notice. So that's actually kind of neat. This is happening all over California right now. Is anyone else working from home or having their social lives or work culture change in notable ways due to coronavirus fears?

I'm going to be doing tech support calls and customer trainings in my underwear; it's kind of surreal.

Currently in college. All classes have been cancelled and moved online. Half my classes were online already and most teachers found it easy to transfer work in an online format so I'm OK. The weird part is my toughest professor is pretty chill online.
My main problem is my time management is shit so I always spend to long or to little on my work.
What I can't take is that I'm stuck at home with my mom. I thought living with my parents while taking gen ed courses in community college was a good idea to save money, but no that I'm stuck with her I can't take it. She tells me how to manage my diabetes in ways that aren't possible and pseudo science, she nit picks everything (sushi roll you have your backpack on wrong, sushi roll your jacket isn't right, sushi roll your pajamas are ugly), and she can't cook (vegan cheese, yeast powder, and hot dog sandwich)

I've got a paid vacation starting march 17. It was planned earlier and happened to start exactly the first day of quarantine in our country by coincidence. Our cafe was shut down and everybody is home under quarantine, until further notice. I'm drinking tea in the comf of my house; people outside were panicking at the beginning, but it seems they've calmed down a bit.
That's it so far. Here is a picture of a blooming peach tree on my backyard.

I am an 'essential worker' so I've pretty much just carried on working as normal since I haven't much social life anyway. I did break my arm on the weekend before lockdown though so I missed the first few months of it. Kinda shitty timing because all the online food delivery slots were booked up but it was really hard for me to go shopping with a cast. I liked how the testing sites felt like a zombie apocalypse at night though, that was cool.

I gotta say, covid really nailed home how little community there is where I live. From what I can tell no one was helping eachother out or organising. We all live in our own box and rely on the 1st world supply chain to sustsain us. If any actual disaster happens we're definetly all doomed.

I'm interested in fashion but don't dive much into it; the main reason is living somewhere where quality is very expensive and not diverse, the second is that i never really found a 'style'.

dive in, sushi! even if you don't have the clothes or a style, it doesn't mean you shouldn't explore the field. most famous designers dress very boringly/plainly - outward appearance isn't a required part of the interest (but it is quite a fun part).
where you live can feel quite restrictive though, sadly

One thing i love about his fit is the pullover. It's kinda loose and goes straight down as opposed to folding upward in the bottom and creating a bulge around your waist/hips.

Something I've been wanting to add to this project, though is taking time to draft out so I will do a rough edit here;

Gaj Treaty

Between the people that serve God, Gnod and the place where the garden grows - Gaj is perhaps a human form of entity; techgnod is the culmination of all decaying substances and will eventually consume life as a whole, while the treaty details that all three are in balance and exist according to one another. A fourth entity may be included once it is named.

Sherlock Hound (1984)

First 6 episodes were directed by Miyazaki, he had to quit in order to work on Nausicaa. It’s much more light hearted.

You remember the scene "The seven days of fire" ? it’s was realized by Hideaki Hanno, who later on directed Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I’d recommend Berserk. The atmosphere isn’t exactly the same tho.

I thought that reading them may be good way to "deboor*" myself.
So what are you reading? Do you have a ritual that accompanies the act?
Maybe you found something extremely interesting in a publication and
want to share?

Currently trying to get into sci-fi right now I'm reading
>Blood Music
It's about a scientist who injects himself with some cells he's working on. It follows how said cells affected him and the world around him. It's not much of an action sci-fi story and more of a watch how shit goes down story. It's nice if you want details, but the characters are kind of flat and serve more as mechanisms for the story. It deals with themes of consciousness, hive minds (which is why I read it), and post humanism. The far side pick kind of reminds me of the book

>Biopunk Dystopias: Genetic Engineering, Society and Science Fiction

It's academic so you need to know a few literacy concepts, but it's nothing you can't google. So far it just covered the history of biopunk and tried to define it, pretty interesting stuff. In later chapters it's supposed to define why modern culture likes biopunk so much.

Finished A Fire upon the Deep, and got partway through the sequel.
An overall good book, though I enjoyed it more for it's sci-fi world building than the political intrigue aspects. It takes place in a galaxy where fundamental physics change as you further from the core, allowing ftl travel and more complex technology.

Also tried the sequel a deepness in the sky, but it spent much more time on the politics than the original and I didn't make it to the end
