Nao and Miki are the sole members of their school's photography club, and have discovered the hidden secret of the wind. With the help of Mr. Taiki (a member of the ancient clan of the "wind-handlers" and one of their teachers) the duo soon pick up the secrets of controlling the wind and seeing it in its perfect beauty. With flying cats, lost tree squirrels and photography contests to boot, there's wind to be seen in any situation...

  • Movie (1 ep x 98 min)
  • 2006

Makoto Konno is a somewhat foolish and tomboyish high school student who spends most of her time hanging out with her two male friends. Things change one day when she suddenly gains the ability to leap through time! At first, she uses her newfound ability to do things such as preventing her sister from stealing her dessert, cheating on a test, and singing Karaoke for 10 hours. However, the small alterations she makes to the timeline turn out to have unforeseen consequences that snowball into dramatic and lethal situations for her and those around her...

Both of these have a lazy summer feel to them and involve young people experimenting with powers - the wind in one and time travel in the other. While watching Windy Tales I was reminded of the feeling of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and while they are very different they also have a similar feel about them.

Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou: Quiet Country Cafe

Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou: Quiet Country Cafe

Alpha, an abandoned robot, runs a small shop in the backwoods of Japan. With an ever-present lack of customers, she passes the days enjoying the little things in life, such as the smell of freshly brewed coffee, and conversation with her neighbors. But when a typhoon emerges and damages the shop, Alpha decides to embark on a journey to see other parts of Japan, expand her horizons, and explore other aspects of life.

If you're looking for 'pure' slice-of-life - no drama, just characters living the quiet life with memorable moments of beauty - then you are sure to enjoy either one of these anime. Both also have an unreal aspect - Windy Tales features fantasy-based control of the wind, while Yokohama has science fiction conceits like robots. This Yokohama is admittedly the sequel of the previous one (recommended to view first) but while that was fine I found this latter installment more satisfying.
