Best Anime of 2019 – Relaxing Anime

There are some anime that are better than a hot cup of chocolate for calming your nerves and just helping all that tension leave your shoulders. I came across quite a few shows last year where sitting down to watch an episode meant 20 minutes of just feeling devoid of concern and it was truly lovely. So here is my pick for best relaxing anime of 2019.

Please note, the nominees and winning choice are entirely my own opinion and are not based on any rigid criteria. Feel free to nominate your own winners for the categories in the comments. Help other readers find some awesome anime from 2019 to watch.

Best Relaxing Anime of 2019

While some of my nominees are pretty obvious, one or two don’t seem like the kind of show that should relax the viewer. However, what one person finds relaxing another might find akin to nails down a chalk-board so to each their own and I’d love you to share your favourite relaxing anime from 2019 in the comments. Meanwhile, my nominees for this category were:


Dr Stone


Didn’t I Say To Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life


Fruits Basket


Kono Oto Tomare

My Roommate is a Cat Episode 8 Haru

My Roommate is a Cat

And the winner is…

My Roommate is a Cat Episode 8 Subaru and Haru

My Roommate is a Cat

This is the perfect bliss out anime for anyone who has ever owned a cat. Meanwhile as I draft this my cat is busily taking over the footrest of my computer table because it has a direct line of cool air from the air-conditioner. Dare I put my toes there they will surely be swatted and you know, I could move her but she just looks too comfortable and cute. Anyway, I loved watching My Roommate is a Cat last year. It may not have been the most exciting anime ever but it had heart, the characters were great and you really got to know them well by the end of the series, and Haru, the adorable Haru, totally stole the season.


I think what all my nominations had in common was they were at their best when they just let the characters be rather than forcing drama into the story. There was a joy just from seeing the people interact. While I’m normally bored by shows that don’t get to a point, these were all good just because they were relaxing to watch.

What’s your relaxing anime of choice from 2019? Be sure to share.

Thank-you for reading 100 Word Anime.

Hope you enjoyed.

  1. I’d have to go with Senryu Girl or Wasteful Days of High School Girls… Though the latter is more because the laughter it caused is pretty cathartic than anything inherently comfy.

  2. I’m definitely with you on this one: My Roommate Is a Cat wins this one. A good pairing the two maincharacter, even though they misunderstand each other often. Such a fun show.

    I did briefly consider Endro~!.
