I love anime with a slow, contemplative quality that focuses on environment and nuance of character relationships.

My favorite anime include:

Natsume Yujinsho
Mushi-shi
Polar Bear Cafe
Chihayafuru
Chi's Sweet Home

I also like:
Free!
Yowamushi Pedal
Kuroko no Basket
Space Brothers
Your Lie in April
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
Utakoi
Parasyte


Basically I'm looking for any recommendations along the lines of slice-of-life, shoujo, horror, or folklore.

I really do not prefer anything ecchi.

Thanks, ya'll!

I hope you like my recommendations and contribute some of your own!

Agree wholeheartedly with Zakuro.

Spice and Wolf is awesome; witty dialogue, great slice of life, and interesting setting.

Nagi no Asukara has an interesting world, some solid characters, and a nice combination of romance, comedy, and drama, and it all builds to a head pretty slowly and methodically. (Not to mention some gorgeous artwork.)

Hanasaku Iroha is a good slice of life with a bit of romance about the running of an inn.

Usagi Drop is a classic slice of life about raising a little girl, and one of my favorite anime of any type.

One Week Friends is a nice little contemplative piece about a somewhat absurd situation.
