Spice & Wolf season 1 (season 2 becomes a bit mroe intense but ti's still amazing)
yuru yuri (basically any sol for that matter)
the case of hana and alice
Sounds nice, I'll check this out.
I just finished re-watching it. Light and fluffy comedy with a melancholic barb in the undertone, that makes you all nostalgic about things you never experienced.
Laid back random/nonsense comedy with artistic visualization of mundane events, slicest-of-lifest plot and lovable characters. It hits a similar spot as the first mentioned work.
Watch the cute shinigami Momo doing her work. All stories are about dying, making this show more serious than the other two. Anyways the pace is slow and the opening makes me chill the fuck out.
In this show everyone seems to be already dead, so no worries :-) It features depiction of rural life, some mystery elements and is overall as slow-paced as the other ones. I also like the soundtrack.
It's really not.http://nyanpass.com/
Check out Amanchu! which is slice of life diving anime. I could put up some webm's of comfy but really the whole episodes are comfy all the way through.

Adding on to this, all of Amano Kozue's work is in the same vein. Most notably Aria, of course.
Mushishi, it's about a shaman-like man wandering in japan countryside to help people dealing with natural spirit entities troubling their life. It's a peaceful chinese cartoon
I'm near the last episode. The cartoon is actually about a dude who smokes weed and tells people stories of invisible monsters. Then he eats their food and sleeps in their houses. The MC is the greatest conman of animu history.
YKK is one of my favorite anime/manga the whole coffee shop in the middle of nowhere feel is max comfy. I also really like how they don't play up the post apocalyptic angle. It's a really good read.
Haibane Renmei is another great show from most of the staff that made Lain, it's about these people called Haibane who have wings and halos who live in this quiet town surrounded by a huge wall. It has a lot if cool mysticism about it too with the wall having magic powers and the Haibane growing from seeds. It's a really comfy show and I highly recommend it.
Came to this thread to say mushishi. Extremely slow and atmospheric.
Same, three sentences and I couldn't read it properly.
Samurai X has some really confy vibes if you can't handle the dramatic aspects.
Lain is confy in some regards, but not in a common way.
Seconding Kino, it's pretty atmospheric and very comfy, kinda like a darker aria, which i would also reccomend
Just watched this for the first time yesterday, came into this thread to recommend it. Instantly joined my top 10, I have no clue why no one talks about it much.
Just watched this and came back to say thank you this was incredible.
there's gonna be a bonus episode in the april bluray release!
For some of the ultimate comfort on the planet, Heidi of the Alps, or "Alps no shojou Heidi" is god tier. Handpainted everything, lots of animals and bugs, flowers, trees, and relaxing gusts of wind that really make you feel like you're on the mountain top. I love it. It's an older anime, but it holds up beautifully.
Ah man, this brings back the memories. I used to watch this series in my childhood. Hnnng, so much nostalgia!
lol I used to watch that with my mom when I was young.
Here's a few comfy short anime that I enjoyed:https://myanimelist.net/anime/5365/Tsumiki_no_Ie
: (pic related) a short film about a man who constantly has to build his house another layer higher due to rising sea levels.https://myanimelist.net/anime/1205/Aru_Tabibito_no_Nikki
: By the same director of Tsumiki no Ie. A few short episodes about a traveler. Similar to Kino's Journeyhttps://myanimelist.net/anime/1004/Kanojo_to_Kanojo_no_Neko
: An anime about the relationship between a cat and its owner.
IIRC there are some minor differences between the two, and the series does not have the end credits sequence of the movie.
Oh yea, I watched it because of that cover, the anime jazz albums are great.
The movie on the other hand is nonsense. Comfy nonsense, but nonsense nonetheless. Maybe I missed something essential from the series.
Yeah, I've heard bad things about the films. I'm really enjoying the series, so I assume it's the way to go.
Have you seen Sakamichi no Apollon? Highly recommend it for a couple of comfy autumn evenings.>>372
What's with this rock cd thing? This isn't the first time I see it.
>>373>Sakamichi no Apollon
+1 for this
i really liked flip flappers
and he was never heard from again.
the anime bartender was pretty comfy
Hakumei to Mikochi is wonderful.
Tamayura is probably the comfiest anime I've seen. I just recently finished Blend S, which I felt was pretty comfy. GochiUsa comes to mind as well. Lots of slice-of-life stuff would fit, I think. Can also agree with the Nichijou and Chuunibyou recommendations.
Yes! It's very good with a lot of funny moments
I agree, even the colour palette used is relaxing for some reason.
Can't go wrong with either one of these.
>>702> I adore all of ABe's other work, too.
There's gonna be a stream of Texhnolyze soon https://samachan.org/z/res/29031.html
if you're interestedunless you're a samsushi roll and already know of this in which case feel free to dismiss the post
I dunno how you can watch Texhnolyze in company.
Streamer here, I'm totally down to stream Niea_7 after Texhnolyze as well. It was a tossup between the two as to which one to do first, and of course the more people the merrier.>>707
O-oh, is it that grim? Well I trust myself not to let the situation color my impression of the show in any case. I've never seen it or Niea_7 but I adore what I have seen of ABe's other stuff. Haibane has been my favorite anime for the longest time.
Seconding Sketchbook ~Full Color's~, it's a really great show and it isn't talked about enough. Kate is a best.
I love Iyashikei anime, Lot's of great recommendations in this thread. Two really great and lesser known comfy anime's I recommend are
Someday's Dreamers II Sora ( https://www.anime-planet.com/anime/somedays-dreamers-ii-sora
Kamichu! ( https://www.anime-planet.com/anime/kamichu
I loved Kamichu but I hadn't heard of Someday's Dreamers, I'll check it out!
My niche recommendations would be Zettai Shounen and Figure 17, they're both very slow and a bit odd but I really enjoyed them.
Ah it seems like most things that come to mind for me immediately have already been discussed. I'll throw Yama no Susume into the mix though, it's a very nice series of shorts about cute girls climbing cute mountains>>499
I want to marry Miyako!
Oh, definitely I would second some of those! I've never seen One Off or Nourin, but the other three are all top tier anime.
I am surprised to see that no one mentioned Yuyushiki until now. A show with great comedy and a heartwarming friendship. Adorable cast too. Probably the anime that made me laugh the most, the interactions between the characters are so damn good and silly.
I love Haibane's soundtrack too. I used to put Ailes Grises on every night to fall asleep.
.hack//sign is everything OP describes except for comfy. Still very good though.>>721
These are both great. Kamichu is pretty strong as an 80s period piece too which I didn't expect from that kind of show. I actually found the Japanese reference book at a used bookstore in Bumfuck, USA recently which was just as unexpected. I know it was probably just some nerd like me who buys junk from Amazon JP but I can't help wondering how things like that get where they get.>>722
Thanks for reminding me of Zettai Shounen. An old friend convinced me to watch it many years ago but I'd forgotten all about it.
