These are my top 10 anime recommendations featuring mori girl characters.
What is a mori girl character? An innocent character who may be subtly eccentric and loves nature. They’re usually creative and peaceful, but of course there are variants!
I’ve been a little loose with my definition when picking these anime, but I find they have such sweet characters that give off a mori girl vibe! The stories generally feature strong female characters, meaningful female friendships and interactions with older generations. Genres for most of them are slice of life, romance and comedy. That might just reflect my personal preference though!
This is a new concept for me, so let me know what you think!
Here's a summary:
Honey and clover: About college art students, really poetic and touching. Comedy, Drama, Josei, Romance, Slice of Life
