1. The Chubby Looking Artstyle
Unlike the majority of anime with razor-sharp-looking chins, the entirety of Kobayashi's Dragon Maid has maintained the cute chibi art style throughout the entire show. The characters rather have a more spherical head and their bodies are smaller while their heads are bigger, kind of like a cartoon.
2. The Soothing OST
As expected of a slice of life OST playlist, it does have its calm factor to it. For instance, you could listen to Oyasumi Mataashita to help you sleep at night.
3. Each Characters Cute Personalities
At first glance, you can already tell that these guys are adorable (except Fafnir). Not just their looks, but from their voice, their speech patterns, and just how they act in general. If these characters remind you of someone you know in real life, they're probably a nice person to be around.
4. The Happy Family Atmosphere
Ever since Kobayashi met Tohru and Kanna, Kobayashi now had someone to go home to. Since then, the trio has pretty much acted like a family. It's wholesome to see how Kobayashi can pull off as a motherly figure to Kanna, and how she works together with Tohru to keep the house up and running.
5. Fight Scenes Aside, It Shows What A Cozy Normal Lifestyle Looks Like
Anime with fearsome dragons? There's bound to be fighting. What would you expect from one of the most respected studios in the industry, Kyoto Animation? They put in the effort to up the animation in fight scenes for a slice of life anime. Animation that can keep up with a Shonen anime. That's nice and all, but as soon as our dragons take on human form, they go on with their everyday lives. What makes Kobayashi's so good is how they delivered the slice-of-life factor of the show. A normal job, meeting up with friends, having a gathering with them, it's all so fascinating.
6. The Wholesomeness beats Ecchi
Despite how ecchi things can get, it has a stronger sense of wholesomeness in the general feel of the show. With some humor added to the mix, you can't help but laugh and sigh in satisfaction.
