A couple of my favourite things in anime include food and character-driven feel-good narratives. If it has beautiful animation and amazing music, then I know that I’m going to have strong positive feelings about it once I have finished watching. Then there are those super rare moments where an anime will be so mind-blowingly awesome as to leave a special sort of imprint on my mind and heart. One that will have me thinking about it and the themes that touched me intimately for a long time to come afterwards. Poco’s Udon World is one such anime
I like to think of these as simple comforts, little discoveries that for some reason will fill my little heart with joy. Because even though it’s essentially mediocre, the title will still pop into my mind when asked for recommendations. This unanticipated treat of a series that I’d like to discuss today is Earl and Fairy.
I remember this anime with a deep sense of fondness as it always reminds to never truly judge a series by its first couple of episodes. What began as something with mediocre expectations ended up becoming one of my favourite feel-good supernatural serials of the season. While I can openly admit that Kakuriyo isn’t a mind-blowing masterpiece, there are still plenty of traits to the show that provide a comforting yet entertaining and somewhat feel-good watching experience all-around

Snow White with the Red Hair (赤髪の白雪姫) is a 2015 shōjo, romance, slice-of-life anime series that was produced by Studio Bones and directed by Masahiro Andō with two seasons and twenty-four total episodes. It became a marvellously surprising gem for me when I watched both seasons back in December. I desperately needed a happy distraction, something to make me feel an air of optimism as we shifted into the new year and this anime fulfilled all of that and more. Today, I want to share five reasons why y’all should watch this show if you haven’t picked it up yet.
Wolf’s Rain follows a group of four ragtag wolves that end up coming together due to various circumstances and embarking on a very long and arduous journey in the search for a place called Paradise, which is foretold to appear when the world approaches its end. In the anime, wolves have been hunted practically to extinction and are nothing more than a grand legend. In order to protect themselves from the many different perceptions that people have about them, the four wolves disguise themselves as humans in order to survive their lengthy adventure.
Self-quarantine and social distancing have been a wild ride. Some days I feel like I’m on top of the fucking world and on others, I sort of just want to build a fort in the corner of my bedroom or giant ass closet and hibernate until the ugliness of the world finally goes away. Since…
Today I decided to compile a list of my absolute favourite feel-good anime titles and share them all with you! Whenever I’m feeling really down, or if my depression is alive with a conviction, I like to turn to these shows because they always manage to make me laugh, smile, and feel fuzzy all over.…
