Manga is one of the most popular forms of Japanese comic books. That said, anime is a single, long-form animation that has drawn in many fans and became one of the most popular ways to enjoy manga.
So if you are having a bad week why not watch something that will make you smile. You might also learn some helpful lessons along the way. And if you are looking for anime that will melt your icy heart, we have got the list for you.
The following list contains four hand-picked heart-melting anime that will melt your heart and teach you something every time you watch them.
4. Ouran High School Host Club
Ouran High School Host Club was one of the first series to feature anime characters in school (in this case, the series focuses on a group of boys that become hosts at a prestigious academy). Aside from being entertaining and filled with tons of humor, it also manages to include some introspection about what it means to be a host. And the anime also teaches how one’s life can change depending on their abilities as such. With all that said, don’t expect this show to be as fun as other examples on this list; it is much more serious and heart-melting than most anime out there.
3. Birdy the Mighty: Decode
This series is very similar to the anime Ouran High School Host Club in that it stars a group of men who fight crime and protect civilians while still maintaining their daily lives as students. That said, Birdy the Mighty is less about school and more about the difficulties of juggling between two personas while trying to establish one’s identity as one goes through life. The story is heartfelt and entertaining.
2. Rebuild of Evangelion
Rebuild of Evangelion is quite a bit different from some of the other series listed here. Rather than focusing on easing the audience into the story, Rebuild of Evangelion begins with the end of the world and then works its way back. This show also focuses on giant robots and fighting monsters as well as important questions about existence and what it means to be human. It is violent, dramatic, philosophical, and emotionally intense. But it is one of the most popular anime in terms of fanbase.
1. School Rumble
School Rumble is a high-school anime in the comedy genre. The show follows the love triangle of high school students. The adorable and lovable characters are mostly relatable and goofy. This is why the storyline resonates with so many people. The story is light and every episode is different. The characters are probably the best part of this series. While there are really only three or four main characters, on numerous occasions, the series turns its attention to some of the backgrounds characters and lets the viewers get to know them better through some interesting side stories.
