Windy Tales (2004-2005)

Windy Tales is a 13-part anime series about three girls who discover the world of the Wind Users, people who can manipulate wind, and who subsequently become Wind Users themselves. While this may sound like a fantasy series that takes place in the present, it isn’t. The whole wind manipulation, while always present, isn’t what powers this series. It’s a typical slice of life show, concentrating on everyday events to show how beautiful and wonderful the mundane can be. There’s isn’t much of an overarching plot, just how the girls learn to control the wind and the things that happen in their lives. To appreciate this series you’ll need a bit of patience, it’s a slow and often quiet show, but IMHO worth it.
