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.

Danna ga Nani is nice since the episodes are only around 3 minutes. You can watch a couple of them before you go to bed. It's about a couple living in an apartment.

Atmospheric? Aku no Hana and Serial Experiments Lain both have this after school thing going on, but more realistic, not doing moe things. I don't know how to explain it. Some of Lain is on Youtube if you want to start it.

yokohama kaidashi kikou is by far the comfiest anime/mange i know of. it's a light scifi post apoc future where everything is just kind of empty, and takes place at a coffee shop run in the middle of nowhere. i highly highly recommend. pic related:main character

苺ましまろ
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.

日常
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.

しにがみのバラッド
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.

灰羽連盟
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.

I absolutely loved YKK, pure comfiness from start to finish, Lain is an odd one though. It's almost comfortably uncomfortable, that kind of eerie peacefulness that lends itself to interesting thoughts. Who would have thought a 50Hz hum could be such a powerful soundtrack?

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.

Try out Kino's Journey. Also second Mushishi and Haibane Renmei.

Kino and the talking motorcycle Hermes travel from country to country, only staying in each one for three days. Each country is in itself an interesting story. It's slow paced and episodic.

I've been really into Genshiken, I love it, especially the first series. Slice of lifes tend to be really slow and with almost no progress, but Genshiken knows how to make good character developemente and it's just lovely. Both the manga and anime are nice (in the anime they skip some really nice parts tho).

Also, Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon is airing right now, I think everyone might know about it but still, is really comfy.

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.

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 Journey

Eve no Jikan is definitely comfy. And disturbing. The setting is the future, when ai is already sentient and android robots are indistinguishable from regular humans. The story revolves around a coffee shop, where the owner enforces equal treatment to both human and android customers. The series and the movie are the same thing, the movie is just the series put together.
The original creator also have made Mizu no Kotoba and Harmonie short films. And they're also good.

NieA UNder 7 has a great feel and looks a lot like Haibane. I find that style to really nice.

Been a fan of this one for a while, it's the only moe anime I ever got into. Despite its silly appearance, it can get really feelsy at times. Great story.
