What's a good anime that'll leave me thinking about how life is good? I don't mind genre or demographic, just something that'll make me smile. No evil plans, no horrible villains and no horribly gory deaths.
pic not really related but still awesome.
Life is good?
Now and Then, Here and There
tengen toppa gurren lagann changed my life

Welcome to the NHK
Grave of the Fireflies
The girl who leapt across time. first you feel sad, then cry. then some happy
There are a lot of J-dramas with the suff you're looking for.
Nodame Cantabile and My Boss, My Hero - to name a few.

Ah! My Goddess! (OVA, preferably)
The ultimate life-is-good anime.
Binbou Shimai Monogatari
Someone tell me how people get their hair to look like this. Mine all shitty and ruined because of hair product overuse.
extreme poverty moe
Moyashimon. You will lol like a faggot and maybe even relate to some of them (provided one isn't underage b&).
This one ultimately makes me depressed since I want to live and experience that world.
it's sad because they're poor and it heartwarming because they're happy.
Only if you were a robot. Humanity is on the decline in that world.
I for one would love to become a cyborg. It's not like I'm getting any action in this world. I kind of like it peacefully so I would probably like the YKK world.
I want to fuck her voice.
quiet sex is my fetish
Binchou-tan - also extreme poverty moe.
All that did is remind me of my own problems and make me feel like shit
Honey & Clover.
MIND FUCKING GAME
My favorite animu movie ever.

Can somebody compile the best recommendations in this thread? Preferably ones with good emotional soundtracks.
Hitohira cures cancer.
Not sure if /a/ hates that anime, but it's awesome.
No, she doesn't. But she gets pretty damn close to it - the major con of her living conditions.
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou (YKK)
Seriously, watch Kamichu! and read YKK. That's all you need.
Kino no Tabi
I'd go for SZS. Especially the first season. It doesn't go too deep into the subject with it's commentary and is amusing nad yet it makes you think if you're in a mood for some self-reflection.
Not OP, but I have the same request. Preferably movies.
Pico to Chico. srsly.
This one. Ignore all the others, you can watch them later if you still feel like it.
Poor sisters is poor.
I always thought she was more rural Japan than poor.
Azumanga Daioh covers the range of emotion, from elation and joy to sadness and remorse. It's really good.
Anon has always liked it. So has /a/. Don't be fooled by trolls who haven't watched it.
WHY IS A GIRL DRESSED LIKE SENSEI!??!!
I'm seconding Manabi Straight. Once i'd finished it i was all ;_; because i wanted to continue watching them having fun ):
Add another vote for Manabi Lesbian
Azumanga Daioh works better than antidepressants
GTO. If you're a man, you'll be wearing the biggest shit-eating grin of your life reading that.
YOU'RE ALL FUCKING IDIOTS.
Umi ga Kikoeru
Mimi wo Sumaseba
