It was inevitable that a dedicated article to the fan-dubbed genre of “Cute Girls Doing Cute Things” would surface on this website. After more than one episode of the Truly Trash Podcast revolving around the concept (my piece on Relaxing Anime subtly trying to weave it in), I am passionate about the Slice of Life genre. That’s all inclusive from emotional series to laid back ones. However, I often find that because these two are sorted into the same category of Slice of Life, the more laidback series are often pushed aside or ridiculed for their inherent structure. With this piece, I’m hoping to blur the bridge that the anime community frequently puts in place and recommend five of my favourite shows where the Cute Girls doing Cute Things formula is used effectively. Oh and I’ll also be trying out some new scoring systems for the sake of these multi-show articles.
So recently I’ve discovered that you can play Japanese mobile games which (depending on how you look at it), is possibly the greatest or worst piece of information I could have found out. I would say I’m a pretty tough person to please when it comes to these free app games, but this game advertised fantastic Kiniro Mosaic art that I had never seen before. Needless to say, I’m addicted.

I would like to start this post by thanking the wonderful NEETaku for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger Award. Their blog is one that I’ve followed for a while now and their style of publishing is unlike any other I have come across. The process of this award seemed fun so I thought I’d give it a try and respond to the questions they gave.
In what has probably been the most stressful month of my life, I’ve realised how there are certain shows that are perfect for forgetting the world you’re in and completely relaxing. Where some like to read a book by a fireplace on a rainy day, I prefer shutting out all social media and focusing solely on one of these five shows. Whether it be their breathtaking scenery with incredible attention to detail or cleverly crafted atmospheres connecting with the sound design of the scene, these are five great shows for relaxing.
