    Default Would this be recomened to recover from a depressing series?

    SO ive been looking for some lighter/happy manga and anime to read/watch after finishing a really depresing series last week. I wrapped up Requiem for the Phantom with a friend and it seriously bummed me out. It wasn't exactly the most uplifting show, but the last few episodes, and especially the last minute were seriously f-d up. As far as manga goes, Love so Life has been GREAT. Im usually not a big Shoujo fan, but its got a great slice of life feel to it, the art is good (not the overly flowerly shoujo stuff i hate) and the cahracters are very likeable. The twins are absurdly adorable too, which is a nice balm to the sour taste Phantom left

    So basically i stumbled on this somehow. I think i saw it on a link tot he author for Noel no Kimochi. It sounds kinda laid back and sweet. Would this be a good choice if i want something light and slice of lifey to recover from a depressing show? I just want to make sure it doesn't turn into a major downer near the end or go way heavy on the drama. I want something mild for the palate.

    And if it is something thats a bit more heavy on the drama, or tragedy is it still good and worth a read later? thanks guys

    No... there is a few light drama moments, but nothing life threatening by any stretch of the imagination.

    i reallly recommend bleach or one piece (the anime), ao no exorcist, gintama if you like shounen, but if you want a shoujo then there isnt a better choice than kaichou wa maid sama but watch the anime before you read the managa, or special a, ouran high school, obaka chan koigatariki, l-dk, i love high school, akagami no shirayukihime, mairunovich, or goong.
    hope i helped <3

    Ending is pleasant, but the plot itself is cyclical, cliched, and childish. It frustrated hell out of me.
    So...expect perfectly reasonable adults to make all the decisions a 12 years old would make.
    Example: MILD SPOILER a wife who cleans her in-laws mansion, labor herself to exhaustion for them least twice just to get the divorce paper signed. Clearly, no such thing as lawyers in this fairy tale.
