Rarely have I wrote about the quiet times of any anime series. When it’s about the journey and not about the destination. To see your main character experience life with all the joys and pains that everyone goes through.
Where it’s not about giant monsters attack or big fight scene but the more down to earth situation. There are some that do have the supernatural element but I promise there are no epic encounters.
Don’t believe me? Then here’s Kanojo to Kanojo no Neko: Everything Flows.
This is series is from the cat’s eye perspective of Daru and her owner Kanojo. They’ve been together for most of their lives and are totally inseparable. Daru, waits patiently for her master to come back after her long day of work.
It’s a simple story but tells a lot with very little and has great animation. Now that you believe me, I’m going to give more of the finest series that are out there. So, here it is 8 Anime Like Kanojo to Kanojo no Neko: Everything Flows.
