Iyashikei

Information
Group for fans of iyashikei, or "healing", "therapeutic" anime. Taken from this article
The term “iyashi” can be translated as “healing”, so that makes iyashikei healing series. Iyashikei is most often considered a sub-genre of slice of life series, because all iyashikei series feature the same character-centered nature of slice of life: There is no real continuing plot and in most cases no conclusion, but the mostly episodic stories are depicting people’s lives without any drama or suspense. However, what differs iyashikei from slice of life is the healing effects: In short, iyashikei calms the reader and leaves them with light-hearted, maybe with a hint of melancholy. The typical of characteristics of iyashikei are a few characters who all feel sympathetic towards each other; close, slowly developing relationships without conflicts as we might know them; an appreciation for nature and the small, beautiful things in life - and most importantly, iyashikei series are mostly located in another time and another world as we live in. Despite the similarities to our lives, iyashikei series are supposed to set us in another world where our sorrows actually are practically non-existent.
Furthermore
People have always relied on the google-box to escape from reality. Leaving their dreary lives behind for a moment while being tuned in to another is escapism at its most accessible. A quick fix one might say, to soothe their souls.
Basically it's a place to appreciate/share/find out about works that could be identified as iyashikei. See also Iyashikei on TV Tropes

In case it flew under anyone's radar, there's a new iyashikei show airing this season; My Roommate is a Cat. It's really cute and heartwarming, hope you enjoy!

I recommend sangatsu no lion. It's also a very sweet and calm anime and the animation is gorgeous

Thanks for that long review. The series was pretty cute and smoothing.
The soothing atmosphere aside, that background is really amazing and you can't help but feel relaxed by the art alone. ^^

I think the original She and Her Cat short is worth a gander, lovely and atmospheric without being too heavy.

Hey guys! I highly recommend Someday's Dreamers. It's a really interesting show and criminally overlooked by the community! Please, give it a shot.
