Strawberry Marshmallow, A-Channel, and Nichibros. For recommendations though, I'd say go with Natsume Yuujinchou/Natsume's Book of Friends if you want something serious. It'll tear your heart apart and put it back together just like that.

It's my favorite genre as well. Some of my favorites include:

Ichigo Mashimaro
K-On!!
Mysterious Girlfriend X
Tamayura
Hidamari Sketch

And many more.

Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko. everything about the anime is top notch. the story, characters, romance.. it stands right up next to the Key greats, except more light hearted and without the depression, which makes it much easier to watch over and over again. I hope they get the funding for a season 2, because 13 episodes really wasn't enough for me.


Yay! I've just been busy talking Denpa Onna up elsewhere! I love this show! Not to mention that the animation is visually stunning. Series 2 would be amazing - although it finished on a sweet note there's definitely room for more.

Sadly, I don't think I've found the slice-of-life to end all others. It's not really my favorite genre. I guess I could say Nichibros and Minami-ke. I haven't started Nichijou yet, need to do that.

Can Gintama count as the Shounen-fighter's slice-of-life? Because if so, then definitely this.

It does, more or less. It skirts the edge, because of how much everyone's relationships change, but the overarching plot driver is the passing of time through the school year.

I'm not sure if anything has dethroned Azumanga Daioh yet as the king of the genre. At lest in my opinion anyway :P

For school life I also enjoyed 'Kimi to Boku' (You and Me), the oh so sadly short lived Hyakko, Lucky Star, and the currently running YUYUSHIKI are pretty great. Plus the many many other titles that I like.

Then I love the ones that familiarize the audience with some kind of sport or art that they may not know about. Big favorites being Chihayafuru, Nodame Cantabile, and Kids on the Slope.

btw from reading this I'm not sure everyone in this thread has quite grasped what constitutes slice of life. Maybe it's more vague than I think?

Love it how Nichijou/My Ordinary Life is mentioned on every page.
It really is a fantastic Slice of Life anime. A series of miracles, even.

There's also YuruYuri if you're ready to be pelted in the face with non stop cuteness.
