Continuing on with our cute wholesome journey with another wholesome romantic anime.
This one is very different than Kimi no Todoke.
Chiyo only wanted to tell Nozaki that she likes him, but instead, she says that she is his fan, and that’s only where the misunderstandings begin.
He invites her over, but to her surprise, he knew about her artistic talent and wanted her help with his Beta’s for his manga. Turns out that he’s a manga artist for a romantic shojo manga that comes out monthly using a pen name. Though most people don’t realize the author is a male high school student.
Most of his classmates don’t know, not because he’s trying to keep it a secret. But because he’s such a blunt awkward guy, no one believed him when he told them the truth.
Through him, she learns more about the manga-making process and the students in the schools that he’s based his. Hijinks ensue as she struggls to tell him how she feels.

Genre: Slice of life, romantic
The next on my list of wholesome anime is a very heartwarming story about a boy and a kitten.
Mikazuki is a 23-year-old introvert who DOESN’T want to be around people. He uses a pin name and writes mystery novels. The only people in his life are Yasaka his childhood best friend, and Kawase his editor. Haru is just a kitten. She is trying to take care of herself, and survive in a world that is not the safest place for a kitten.
And on a faithful day, their worlds collide.
Since Mikazuki’s parents died, he has done a good job of not letting anyone get close, but now that he has a kitten in his life. Her presence not only leads more people into his life but even gets him to explore the things of his past.
This anime is one of the few that allows you to see the same scene from the thoughts of both of our main characters.

Kinda known as From me to You,君に届け.
For the second in this installation in this series. I give you a cute friendship, romantic anime.
We have our main character Sawako. She looks similar to the ghost girl from the horror movie “The Ring”, and is not so affectionally called Sadako by her classmates. She comes off as scary and is rumored to have the ability to see ghosts and to be bad luck. So she’s never had any close friends, but she is very kind.
Almost everyone avoids her except for the most popular guy in her grade Kazehara. He has always been friendly to her. And from his kindness, she starts to make friends, and her whole world starts to change.
Why so wholesome?
Because of the pure-hearted nature of our main character. She’s sweet, naive, and really wants the best for everyone around her(even when they don’t accept her). It’s hard not to like her and to want to cheer her on.
Where can I watch: Crunchyroll,Hulu

This is a great anime for someone looking for something sweet. It has a nice storyline, sweet main characters, and a host of adorable toddlers and the kids in the club who look after them.
And this is a comedy.
Our main characters are Ryuuichi, a first-year in high school( 10th grade), and his quiet brother Kotauru who is a toddler. Their parents die suddenly. Ryuuichi is given an offer by the dean of a prestigious private school. She’ll take care of them and give him admittance to the academy IF he joins the school’s babysitting club.
This was a thing the school established to support the teachers after school. He agrees to join and help get other members.
Hijinks ensue with the toddlers and his shy little brother. Not to mention the friends that he makes over time. It’s only twelve episodes, but it’s cute, warm, funny, and heartfelt.
