Bob's Burgers is the ultimate comfort show to me. There's nothing better to soothe the nerves than the Belcher family. If you haven't started it, you really should. I remember watching the first episode long ago thinking eh it's ok and then abandoning it. I'm so happy I picked it back up. They keep getting better and better.

Maiko-san Chi no Makanai-san is about a girl who travels with her friend to Kyoto in hopes of becoming a maiko, but fails and instead becomes the caterer for a small manor for maiko. If you like cooking and comfy slice of life manga then you'll probably enjoy this. And of course there's lots of interesting facts about maiko and geisha sprinkled in there as well.

i find my brother my brother and me to be really refreshing in terms of humour, personally. i love all of griffin and justin's content on polygon too (the second life and fallout 4 monster factory episodes are probably my favourite). it's understandable, but also a shame that they've moved on from that, though. i'm also getting into their d+d podcast, which they do with their dad, that's also good fun.
they give me hope that there are some good and kind men in the world, in a time where it all seems so bleak, tbh

Ranma! Whenever I feel like shit I watch any random episode (which you can enjoy without any context) and I feel safe and cozy again. It's simple and funny, also I absolutely LOVE the animation, it's so cute.
Another personal bonus is the latin Spanish dub that makes the show for me even more cute and funnier, but that's also my nostalgia playing up

On the topic of slice of life anime, I loved Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru. At first I thought it was the worst weeb shit ever but it's a comforting anime. Basically you follow the daily life of many different swordguys at a citadel and it's heartwarming how nice and supportive they are to each other.
really into watching some of these lately theres something comfy about them
its weird how they dont make serious specials for kids anymore on stuff that they will be exposed to

I'm seriously so content to watch playlists of people playing games while I play something on my handheld.
I would recommend checking out story of seasons, a cute-ass little farming game. (I suppose a bit similar to harvest moon?)
I'm heavily anticipating coffee talk on steam. I played the demo and it's so relaxing and cute (I mean coffee, rain and lo-fi - a winning combo). I can't wait to see more about the world. I hope they pull it off well.

Most Anne of Green Gables adaptations are really cozy. My personal favorite is the Sullivan version (the first movie). Megan Fallows was an exquisite Anne.
oh okay that makes sense.
I haven't played harvest moon before so I thought it was just a similar game.
This looks a lot like Va11-h11a (or however it's spelled, really lmao), is it from the same studio?
I already love it.
don't think so as Va-11-hall-a was created by a small indie studio and this is literally natsume's harvest moon.
Thought the same tho lmfao, those games look vaguely similar
Coffee talk ISN'T by Nastume.>>318292
Va11 halla isn't made by the people of coffee talk, but I see how you'd think so!
yeah as other anon's have said, it is a diff studio that's making it. But! I'm pretty sure they've said they were inspired by Va11halla>>318398
I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm so impatient since it comes out next year so i'm just gonna shill it in the meantime.

Maybe noone mentioned them cause it's obvious but just in case… The old gameboy color/gameboy advance Hamtaro games are the best. They are adorable, cozy and fun.
I've spent half of elementary school afternoons retreating into the colorful world of cute hamsters to forget that I am feeling like shit because of being bullied as fuck
They are really well made. I wish Hamtaro games got revival but I guess it's a dead franchise. Such a shame.

I don't ever know how to talk about this without sounding like a massive dweeb (especially since no one in the US ever seems to have heard of this show even though there's 8 seasons of it on Netflix)….but no show has made me believe in friendship and community and love and family like Call the Midwife has. I've more or less been an atheist/agnostic my whole life but this show always got me wonderin if I should be a nun.>>320030
Fuck, this just gave me childhood flashbacks. I loved that game so much as a kid.
When I saw the kittens in episode 2,i already knew they were going to be killed (and looking it up on doesthedogdie verified it). Apparently a dog and multiple birds die in that show, too.
It's a shame because I really liked the first episode but if other farmers are sensitive about animal deaths you might want to skp this one!

I finally sat my ass down to watch this on my day off and i legit marathoned it in about two days. I really enjoyed it. It felt like horror going back to horror roots. I also appreciate that it wasn't filled with gore for no reason of sexual assaults (esp on women) the way a lot of modern horror can be. I really appreciate a lot of what the show did.
Very sad though, so have tissue ready.
Just wanted to say thank you!
I'm studying japanese (lower intermediate level) and his Minecraft videos are perfect because I understand most of what he says and even learn a few new things. Plus he has subtitles in english and japanese and they're not the auto generated kind.
His videos are calming indeed. I lol'd when he started drowning in that first walkthrough and just went nani in the most calm manner. There's something so cute and childish about his way of playing.

Really glad you enjoyed it! And yeah it's great for learning Japanese, one of the reasons I even started watching was because it's so easy to understand.
Idk if you already watch it but another wholesome series that also aids with studying is Terrace House, a show on Netflix where 6 random Japanese persons live under the same roof and live their daily lives. It's really soft-paced for a reality tv series, and very comfy and wholesome most of the time (there are bits of drama here and there, as you would have with normal human relationships, but it's pretty realistic and not blown out). What makes it great for learning the language is that it's unscripted, so you hear how people actually speak, so naturally it's better than watching j-dramas or anime. Oh, and I recommend it to anyone regardless of whether they speak Japanese or not. Great for binging.

Night vale is very comforting for me and i always like the weather at times in night vale
you revived some very comfy childhood memories, I loved this game.>>321574
Not above anon, but you basically choose a puppy from the petstore and raise/train him. Super cute and simple game.
Not OP but this game was my childhood, you basically just raise a dog of your choosing for 30 days (I think) until you start again, but you can still visit your previous dog.
I love it because the amount of effort you have to put in to each dog to unlock things is super fun and relaxing, you could go the entire 30 days and not train your dog up to the point it can go on walks so every dog feels unique. Plus there are little timed in-game moments that are adorable, like the phone ringing at random, and if you catch it before it stops, you have a small convo with your aunt, just small things really make a difference.
Plus you can clean your house, play videogames, play with her toys (like a remote control car), and just live your life + pup. Really great, many a fun time, I used to cry whenever the 30 days were up lel.
>>321605>Not OP but this game was my childhood, you basically just raise a dog of your choosing for 30 days (I think) until you start again
Oh, it sound so much like pic related, except with dogs and not ponies…
>but you can still visit your previous dog
…except for this point, the bad thing about the Friendship Gardens MLP game was that once your pony went over the rainbow, you would never see her again. Which sucked.

Sorry, dropped my pic and I am on mobile so cannot edit easily.
Unfortunately you can't do as much as you used to with your dog when visiting it, plus if you didn't learn how to do things you can't ever progress with it, like if, after the 30 days, I never taught the dog to catch, it'll never be able to learn :(>>321680
I used to play this too! Then again I've played every essential 'girly' game, old graphics are so fun.
Holy fuck! I didn't expect to see other fans of these games. I actually researched the company that made them (MTO) because I find their games so cute and comforting.
Catz is good too, but the style is very different. I preferred being able to walk around in Dogz. Dogz on DS and Dogz 2 on GBA both are in the same style as the first GBA Dogz game, for anyone interested or looking for these games.>>321243
Harvest Moon! More Friends of Mineral Town is the girl version, Friends of Mineral Town is the boy one. There are also gay mods now. I also second all of the suggestions other anons made. I'll post again if I think of other cutesy games. Can they be games for GB/GBC since you can play those on GBA?
As a stressed out adult, the cute games I played as a child are coming back and I don't want to bother with feeling embarrassed for liking cute kids' games anymore.
Yesss I played this too. But I thought I'd be able to follow my pony when they went over the rainbow and I was so sad when I couldn't lol.
I think I got this game in a package of CDs with a Barbie Rapunzel game and a Crayola Dress Up game. Did anyone else have that?

I haven't seen the scene, I just read about it on doesthedogdie.com so I can't say anything about that but the description make me glad I didn't see it.
Of course not everyone is sensitive about this, I just wanted to add my 2 cents in case other anons might be sensitive about animal deaths, especially when they expect wholesome spook.
I'm glad you could enjoy it regardless and I hope many more anons do!
Picture related, those are only comments about the kittens, apparently a dog dies, too.

This is perfect, thank you again!> Great for binging.
Yeah, I guess my exams can wait lol
Also, I would recommend the game Okami as wholesome. It's probably on my top 5 games list. I played it first on my ps2 and it was released on PC I think last year. I just like the characters, the music, the art, and the gameplay. You kill enemies with your brush and you get new brush moves by interacting with Japanese gods. It's super satisfying restoring a place and breathing life into it. And the game itself is really long so after finishing all the quests you get attached to the characters and immersed into the story. I was crying a few times which I usually don't.
I haven't finished it but ugh more deaths? I might figure out where they are and skip them because things like that add nothing to the story.>>322006
I think it's good you mentioned it for sensitive anons, tbh. It didn't bother me too much because we didn't get attached to them, they die very quickly after they're found. To summarise for curious anons or anyone who wants to prep themselves before they see it:They find the kittens in a shed and the dad lets her keep them. She tries feeding them cow's milk which would obviously not keep them alive. She finds the first kitten dead and as they're burying it, it starts moving again. The girl is convinced that the kitten is still alive and doesn't want to bury it. Turns out it was a bug crawling in the dead kitten's body. The rest have some kind of disease and have gone blind. It's implied that the rest of the kittens were killed by the father. The parents have an argument about it. The mother thinks it was traumatising and the father thinks it was a good lesson for her to learn and that's why he let her keep them instead of leaving them in the shed for the mother to return to.

I thought the Yo-kai watch games were comfy.
The monster designs depend on person to person but I don't mind too much. I felt like a little kid again exploring areas and using my imagination to pretend there's magic in mundane, everyday things.
I'm disappointed that they did a 180 and made it edgy in the recent games but I won't forget the fun I had
I've been listening to my Red Velvet playlist and this song seems super wholesome to me. I feel comfy listening to it in the car when I drive home from a stressful work day.>>309345
I avoided this series when it first came out because I didn't want it to turn into a shitty Amittyville 5.0. I was surprised by the fact that all of the adult children have realistic but fucked circumstances they try to heal from but it keeps reeling them back. When Nell died, I appreciate the fact that they didn't make the funeral process gritty and "accepted". Shirley has seen death and never accepted it healthily since the kittens died. When she was handling Nell she felt emotion that was different than her recycled job tasks. Even Theo was broken upon seeing Nell and she's the most badass of the group. Their family bond was strong despite them talking shit about each other all the fucking time. Wholesome I guess? I'm at the episode where Luke apparently "OD's" in the house so let's see where it takes us. I wonder about the Red Room and what's in it. I'm glad it's not spoodfed to me yet.
I'm just going to repeat what others said, but thank you so much. It's truly wholesome and comfy.
I'm so glad that this thread exists.

I'm watching the 1995 bbc version of Pride and Prejudice at the moment and it's wholesome as fuck. I was always put off Austen adaptations by the nutty fanbase, but I actually really like it.
NTAYRT but it is helpful if you can reverse image search. It's Natsume Yuujinchou. I also recommend it even though I sometimes cry while watching it since Natsume (the main character) didn't have the best childhood, yet he's still so pure. Otherwise it's very beautiful, art and story wise, and the soundtrack is always amazing, kinda like impressionist music mixed with some traditional Japanese music elements. Also bonus points for the countryside comfiness.
Honestly just watch any anime with the Iyashikei tag and you're set for a pleasant time. (https://anilist.co/search/anime?includedTags=Iyashikei

winx club too, but for god's sakes don't watch past season 3. loved this show on 4kids for years, but after s3 it went to shit.
I did played 2/3 of Atelier Rorona, and it's rather targeted towards girls, with female leads and side-characters guys being your typical bishie.
Main gameplay is gathering items for alchemy from maps that you explore + jRPG fights.
The only fanservice'y thing I can complain about is changing you character's clothes to swimsuits.
I have a soft spot for this franchise even though it's pretty bad. It's like a worse version of W.i.t.c.h but it was enjoyable and exciting to watch when I was a kid.
You heard that next year we will get a live action Netflix series? I believe it might be geared towards original fan of the series (but not only, obviously). I pray that it's good or at least fun cause I like the idea overall.
i'm that anon, i was a fan of w.i.t.c.h. too. the comics were awesome, but the tv series was terrible af. i don't think winx is a worse version of it tbh, it's still kinda different, though they do both come from italy.
with winx, only the first three seasons are watchable. i remember watching when s4 came out and was like… what the fuck happened to the animation? recently re-watched and saw a tiny bit from the new seasons… like, what happened to this show? it's still going on and it looks awful. the movies and anything past s3 are so shitty. it should have ended after 3 tbh. and when nick picked it up they ruined it so bad. rainbow did a better job dubbing, hell even 4kids did.
