Potemayo, Shinryaku! Ika Musume Recommendations
Both are the humorous misadventures of a strange creature and its interactions with a small community. Both have cute, simplistic character designs, and each has the same satisfyingly slow pace.
Funny, cute and above all, uplifting. More inventive with their comedy than you might expect. I expected these shows to be nice watches without being anything spectacular, but I enjoyed both series more than I assumed I would.
