5 Anime That Can Alleviate Bad Moods, Can They Really Cure Depression?

I firmly believe the only thing anime can do is help with the depression, not cure it. But it’ll definitely alleviate some of the negative symptoms while you’re watching since your mind will be off of the negative thoughts in your head.

Anime-Internet has brought for all the pro anime watchers and the rookies, a list of anime that can help cure your depression to a certain extent.

Don’t we all feel depressed especially with this never-ending pandemic and this “new” normal?

Also, school and work seem to never end now that we all are stuck at home.

Well, no need to worry and just follow the list.

5 Anime That can Alleviate Bad Moods

  • Gakuen Babysitters
  • Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge or Tanaka-kun is Always Listless
  • K-On!
  • Miira no Kaikata or How to Keep a Mummy
  • Barakamon

Now let’s kick depression away.

Gakuen Babysitters

anime that can cure your depression
With 12 episodes and a score of 7.84 on my anime list, this anime is a close deal to make you smile and giggly.

The anime follows the story of Ryuuichi Kashima and his toddler brother Kotarou. After they lost their parents in a fatal plane crash, you can see how a big brother Kashima does his best to look after Kotarou.

Kashima is offered a settlement in which he has to become a school’s babysitter in order to enroll in an elite school. The babysitters club is filled with the toddlers of the female teachers of the academy.

Now Kashima has to take care of not only his brother but also a set of toddlers with dynamic personalities.

Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge /Tanaka-kun is Always Listless

Again with 12 episodes and a score of 7.90 Tanaka-kun is Always Listless, tells the story of all the school students who have the super ability to fall asleep in any condition.

Tanaka-kun prays every day (it’s almost a threat though), for an uneventful day. He tries his best to preserve his laziness by avoiding all kind of situation that requires him to do something physically.

Trust me; he said in one episode he does not eat if the food is far from his hands reach.

His friend Oota helps him by carrying him around the campus to accomplish things.


K-on has 13 episodes and a score of 7.84 and the story about Light Music Club.

Yui Hirasawa faces the trouble of finding a club to join and ends up joining Light Music Club. When she insists on leaving the club due to her being incapable of playing any musical instrument, the club faces disbandment.

The club members make offers to Yui to convince her. Finally, as a last resort, the club plays a piece this sparks Yui’s passion. This convinces Yui to stay with the club and then onwards it a story of high school students spending a delightful time together.

Miira no Kaikata / How to Keep a Mummy

12 episodes and a score of 7.42 on my anime list, we meet Sora Kashiwagi and a cute mummy, Mii-kun.

Sora Kashiwagi always receives bizarre gifts from his father who is traveling around the world on an expedition. One day Sora receives a package from Egypt and inside is our very own mummy Mii-kun.

This unusual pair meets other people with equally unique pets. Sora and Mii-kun strengthen their bond and teach us how to keep a mummy.

The story of Seishuu Handa, an up-coming calligrapher is told in 12 episodes.

Unfortunately, Seishuu is a narcissist along with being handsome. When his award-winning piece is called “unoriginal” by a veteran, Seishuu loses his cool.

Thrown into a rural atmosphere after his father exiles him to Goto Island, Seishuu must find new inspiration. However, the neighbors and the Islanders are far from peaceful. Incapable of minding their own business, the islanders teach Seishuu more than he could imagine and hope for.

All these anime will give you so much joy that you will momentarily consider getting yourself a tiny mummy. The 5 anime are sure to cure your depression and make you fall in love with the childhood zeal we all had.
