    Default Mangas or anime similar to YKK or Aria?

    Are there any mangas or animes similar to Yokohama Kaidashi Kiko(YKK) or Aria? They dont have to be the same just similar. I like the light hearted peacful atmosphere in both it makes me feel good in the inside (especially YKK).

    Well, since over on the similar-to-Adachi thread I just suggested YKK, I suppose I should recommend Adachi here. Try his shoujo romantic comedies, like Hiatari Ryoukou or Miyuki. His sports manga tend to wind up the tension during competitions, though Rough (half-hosted here) focuses more on the daily life outside of training. All of these are contemporary setting.

    If you're not alergic to kittens, there's also Chii's Sweet Home (hosted here).

    (I want to recommend Ai-Ren, but while it's slice-of-life futuristic, it's not at all quiet or feel-good -- it's more like the seinen tear-jerking romance inversion of YKK.)

    And Ai-Ren is different from the others in the subject that it doesnt have a soggy happy ending...

    worth reading

    Read Mushishi. It's got that feeling of calmness to it. It tells stories of mostly japanese myths. It's just a great manga.

    Thank you I will try some of those. I never tried any of Adachi's works but they look interesting and they have good artwork. I'm reading Ai Ren and like it.

    anime similer to aria would be ARIA(finished) and ARIA the natrual(ongoing)
    Remember, when someone annoys you, it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and smack the jerk upside the head.

    A bit late, but try the Bartender anime. I haven't watched anything so soothing in years. It's a very gentle, slightly melancholy, anthology of stories centered around the patrons of a bar and their lives.
