Recommendations for media about kind people? (Especially if they are having fun together in a community.) Can be anything, anime VNs, LNs, actual books etc. I like the book Pollyanna a lot, I think her perspective to always find something to be thankful for is beautiful.
Aria: The Animation
>>2470 That's one of my favorite anime! Most iyashikei anime fit this description. Non Non Biyori is another really good show too.

I saw the Straight Story today and it was a simple wholesome movie. No overt messages and agendas, just a man looking to make amends his estranged brother. Sissy Spacek's character was also adorable.
Johnny Come Lately (1943): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQFl4ynM7MQ It's a lesser known James Cagney movie about a vagrant ex-newspaper man who repays an elderly woman who helps him get out of legal trouble by assisting her with her newspaper and resisting attempts of her corrupt rival to buy him out.

>>2468 the bridge to terabithia by katherine paterson is a book that frequently ends up on school library censor lists. which is a shame, as i feel that many children and even adults would grow emotionally from reading this book. as for the story's themes, the important themes covered are friendship, loss, and imagination.
