Spooky season is behind us, and a proper chill is setting it. So now, we’re looking for some cozy anime to keep us warm and cheerful as the nights get darker and the air gets colder. Fortunately, this season alone has plenty to choose from!
Dig in to this trio of heartwarming new shows, each only a few episodes in. It’s the perfect time to jump in!
I’m Giving the Disgraced Noble Lady I Rescued a Crash Course in Naughtiness
Okay, we hear you. This doesn’t sound like a cozy anime so much as something else entirely. But I’m Giving the Disgraced Noble Lady I Rescued a Crash Course in Naughtiness is, title aside, one of the most wholesome series we’ve seen in a while. Allen, a misanthropic sorcerer, rescues Charlotte (the “disgraced noble lady”) after she’s exiled on false charges. Not that her life was especially great before that. It turns out the family she was supposed to marry into treated her like a slave, beating her into believing she must always defer to others.
But Allen has a dastardly plan. While hiding her from the authorities, she’ll get her into all sorts of terrible habits. Like… having cake if she’d like it. Or buying herself a nice dress. So it’s not so much “naughtiness” as self-care. And along the way, he may just find himself falling for her.
The Saint’s Magic Power Is Omnipotent
This cozy anime is one of several isekai returning for a second season. Sei, a normal Japanese lady summoned to another world, has begun to come into her own as the people’s Saint. She’s happy to work in the background, making her super-powerful potions and getting flustered over the handsome Commander Hawke. But it seems her legend has spread.
This season, Sei begins learning about the wider world in which she’s found herself. That means new herbs to experiment with, new political intrigue to untangle, and… best of all… this world’s version of coffee!
My New Boss Is Goofy
How is an office comedy a cozy anime? Trust us. My New Boss Is Goofy is one of the chillest, cutest new series out there. We follow Momose, an ad man who’s just escaped from a previous abusive boss and started a new job. His idea of how an office runs is… skewed, to say the least. Enter Shirosaki—and this new boss is worlds separated from his last one. For one thing, he’s thoughtful, kind, and respectful. For another… he’s adorably absentminded.
Together, Momose and Shirosaki navigate office life… missing their stops on the train, finding stray cats, and getting mistaken for a married couple. Through it all, we share Momose’s feelings of relief. Shirosaki is not only a great boss, he’s an absolute sweetheart.
