Anime comes in different entertainment mediums and can bring out a wide range of emotions and reactions. From shonen to romance to isekai, there are multiple options on the platter to satisfy all urges.
Well, that’s where iyashikei, a subgenre of a slice of life, comes in, which is also known as “healing” anime wherein characters are portrayed living out peaceful lives in calming environments.
With the numerous dissatisfactions and difficulties presented by ordinary life, bouncing into a tranquil world with very little in the method of stakes can be consolation.
Spring 2022 was privy to one such series as the anime adaption of Asato Mizu s’ manga series, Aharen-san, hit the small screens.

Aharen-San Wa Hakarenai Season 2 Plot
In the season one finale, Aharen-San Episode 12, Oshiro confronted Aharen about Raido’s proposal, only to be met with her denial. Oshiro, feeling protective of Aharen, challenged Radio to a duel.
During the showdown, Radio admitted his affection for Aharen, who overheard the confession and reciprocated her feelings.
This heartwarming turn of events led to Oshiro apologising to Radio, and the trio promised to remain close even after graduation.
In the upcoming season, these friends will advance to a new class. Aharen’s dream of sharing a class with Radio will come true, strengthening their bond.
The first season of Aharen-san wa Hakarenai introduces Raidō Mastuboshi and Reina Aharen. Raidō starts high school while sitting beside Aharen in class.
Their blossoming romance will be a central theme, but Aharen will grapple with uncertainty about their feelings for each other.
This uncertainty will be a source of tension as she questions their readiness for a committed relationship.
Amidst the emotional rollercoaster, Aharen will be diligent in her studies during her senior year, with Radio lending a helping hand.
Their journey will explore the complexities of young love and the challenges of balancing it with academics.
Raidō struggles to make friends because of his unfriendly facial expressions, and Aharen has no one because she does not possess a clear sense of distance.
Gradually, the two of them become each other’s confidante and their relationship grows stronger.
However, Aharen’s childhood friend, Mitsuki Oshiro does not approve of their relationship and wants to save her friend from Raidō.
As days pass, Aharen and Raidō spend most of their time together, studying or playing games mostly.
Raidō also gets pranked by Ren, Aharen’s brother who looks like her, gets introduced to Eru, Aharen’s sister, and takes swimming lessons from Mitsuki.
Their happiness comes under scrutiny from Futaba, and Akkun who admires Aharen and tries to create problems whenever they can.
Slowly, the relationship between Aharen and Raidō turns into a sweet love, but neither of them can confess properly.
An added push from Mitsuki as a Reversi duel between her and Raidō ends up making them confess their feelings for each other while pondering over the next school year.
This shocks Aharen, who makes sense of how blissful she was when Radio admitted. Oshiro apologises, and Aharen, at long last tells Radio she loves him as well, and, close by Ishikawa and Satō, they all hug.
