If you enjoyed my previous list of good anime recommendation, then you need to add the following 3 anime to your watch list because they will undoubtedly give you relief in these crazy and trying times.
- Kamisama Hajimemashita
Crunchyroll / Kamisama Hajimemashita
What to do if your mother dies of an illness and your father runs away from home because of his debts, you were left homeless and broke up in high school? Accidentally became a god and lived in a shrine with no rent – like our human daughter Nanami. He also has a familiar fox, Tomoe, who has deep leaving issues and doesn’t want to serve someone. However, he is forced to make a contract with Nanami after rescuing him, to help him with his sacred duties. She meets a lot of friends along the way and starts to have unexpected feelings for Tomoe.
Everyone has unbearable obstacles and hardships in life but there are many people around us who will love and support us forever. I love this anime because of Nanami’s unwavering determination to be with everyone, no matter what their differences are. He showed that unselfishness is not a weakness and that facing the truth is important in helping others.

- Haikyu !!
Crunchyroll / Haikyuu
At first glance ‘Haikyuu !!’ can look like a classic sports anime featuring a group of boys playing volleyball. That’s true, but there’s more to it! The relationships between the characters are very pure, warm and good. The story is primarily about Hinata – aka a ball of sunlight – who is more interested in volleyball and wants to join the high school team. However, size is important to being a good volleyball player – and Hinata misses it. Yet he didn’t stop and his teammates and opponents encouraged and trained him.
Personally, this anime is the only reason I survived quarantine. When I couldn’t do anything and I lost my appetite to wake up, ‘Haikyuu !!’ excites me and inspires me to follow my passions. It gives me hope that things will get better. Sometimes we lose in life, but that doesn’t take away all the positive experiences we’ve had in the past. We have to keep going and not stop. We will all definitely win.
