3 Spring 2019 Iyashikei Slice of Life Anime for the Weary Workaholic

As we get older, it’s a lot easier to let our lives be consumed by work and responsibilities. How often do you find yourself sitting down to read a book, play a video game, or watch an anime only to be consumed by thoughts of whatever responsibilities and chores you may have. We know we do. Sometimes you need to take out the trash, do the laundry, feed the kids, etc. etc. It’s hard to just sit back and relax with those things looming over you! Plus, on top of that, you already worked your nine-to-five job and did your long commute. How’s an adult supposed to relax with so much going on? Well, we’ve got 3 wonderfully relaxing iyashikei slice of life anime for you. If you’re a workaholic in need of some relaxation and the healing effect of Iyashikei slice of life anime, we have 3 anime just for you!

1. Sewayaki Kitsune no Senko-san (The Helpful Fox Senko-san)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: April 2019 - July 2019

Sewayaki Kitsune no Senko-san is exactly what you need if you’re looking for iyashikei slice of life. In fact, so is the main character, Nakano. Nakano is just like us, a weary and mentally exhausted salaryman whose life seems to revolve around work. However, while we have anime to look forward to, Nakano has Senko, a kitsune who caters to his every whim to help him relax a little! We may not have someone like Senko (and don’t you dare say your mother/wife), but we can at least appreciate all that Senko does for Nakano and feel the healing effects from their interactions while living together.

2. Senryuu Shoujo (Senryu Girl)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: April 2019 - June 2019

Senryuu Shoujo is all about a girl named Yukishiro Nanako who cannot speak but still manages to communicate in written senryuu, which is a form of haiku. While the whole anime plays out in senryuu, we get to watch Nanako’s timid interactions with the former delinquent Busujima Eiji, which is just adorable. They have the nicest and sweetest interactions, you cannot help but feeling rejuvenated after watching Senryuu Shoujo at the end of a long day.

3. Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: April 2019 - June 2019

Perhaps one of the most healing anime of the season has to be Hitoribochi no Marumaru Seikatsu, an anime about the shy Hitori Bocchi who is cornered into making friends with everyone in her class. She’s just so shy, however, that she imagines the worst things possible and tries to run away! It’s actually quite adorable to watch her interactions, and somewhat relatable for those of us with social anxiety. Her attempts are quite endearing and just fill you with that warm fuzzy feeling that we all need from a good iyashikei slice of life anime.

Final Thoughts

While they may not be the most exciting, there’s something that we can truly appreciate about iyashikei slice of life anime, especially for those of us who work a lot and are thoroughly exhausted by the end of the day. Don’t you agree? Hopefully you can gain some of the healing benefits of these 3 anime the way we have. Are there any anime that you are enjoying this season?
