The thing I like about anime is that you can take something ordinary and make it awesome

In fact, I think that the slice of life genre is pretty unique to anime.
I can't say about other regions, but I'm sure it would not fly as a genre in American media.


I think American sit-coms can come pretty close to slice of life

Postal Service. An anime about the mail man is lame. Yet an anime about the mail man delivering packages that require him or her to go on an adventure is much better.


Ever hear of Tegami Bachi (Letter Bee in English)? It's basically that, except it's set in a fantasy world with giant bugs and guns powered by emotion.


I've seen that anime.

I never thought I'd love an anime as much as I do Chihayafuru. Especially since its mainly about an almost unknown card game called Karuta that apparently is not even all that popular even within its own country. But the beautiful art style, funny quirky characters, and passion and dedication they show for the game equal that of any sports player; make this one of my most favorite anime's ever.

A story about Readers; people who read books and can magically make the book come to life simply by reading it. It sounds lame but that is all I could think about.

I feel the same way; there is a magic to fiction that isn't found elsewhere.
