When not being exceedingly manly, wrestling bears and chopping down trees, I enjoy a good slice of life show, especially those of the High School genus. It reminds me of when I was young lady…



Most slice of lives are set in or around school although there are plenty of exceptions, most notably the fan favourite Planetes.
SoL's are noted for their episodic nature, slow pacing and general absence of over all plot. Hell, most don’t even need to be watched in airing order. These make the genre a great choice for casual viewing.

Rather than list every slice of life I can think of I’ll be lazy and throw this up;
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SliceOfLife (caution: This site is notorious for eating up up any free time you may have)
This doesn't cover a quarter of them but it's a good starting point.
Other note worthy series include: Manabi Straight, Moyashimon, Bamboo Blade and Chi's sweet home.

Being so plot light there isn’t really much to talk about (and we already have trouble when it comes to talking about anime as it is) which is why this thread is basically covering a whole genre. Feel free to post anything you want on anything to do with these shows from which ones you are currently watching, choice moments or why you think these shows are horribly dull and need more ninjas, anything at all is welcome.

Unless mods say otherwise I’m also happy to host any talk on SoL manga here as well.

Recommended watches:
Azumanga Daioh (probably the best of the High school shows),
Hidamari Sketch,
Nodame Cantabile,
Manabi Straight.

Ahaha, excellent. I love slice of life. Especially Azumanga, which pretty much revolutionized the whole thing.

Crap like Lucky Star can burn in the deepest recesses of hell, however...

Random-ish question though, would Yotsuba be considered slice of life?

Well it is about her daily life so it makes sense that it would be.

I shouldn't have scrolled down to Western Animation on that link....to much "I remember that, and that, ooh that".

Interesting that they have Kiki in their as a "condensed into film" slice of life anime. Wouldn't have occured to me otherwise but yes it could have easily been a series.

I like the more bizzare slice of life ones...where a character or the situation is completely unreal but in their existance it's normality. In saying that...that's most anime to some degree.

Favorite slice of life of all time: Aria the Animation (and its sequels, plus the manga). I love it. It's not especially funny, or dramatic (within the storyline of each episode), and the characters aren't that realistic (not to say they're not totally endearing anyhow)...but it's such a feel-good show that I can't help smiling throughout all the light-hearted episodes--without even realizing it. (The episodes featuring bittersweet themes are heart-wringing, though.)

Oh, and the music/background art/character designs/etc. are wonderful.

I would say my favorite is Ichigo Mashimaro, closely fallowed by Azumanga Daioh and Hidamari Sketch. Though I enjoy Lucky * Star, I prefer the other three, and not just because their hair styles and colors are more realistic.

^ Lucky Star changed directors after episode 04, I think. It got SO MUCH better from then on.

Yes, Zetsubou Sensei for the win ftw!!! But does it actually fit in the Slice of Life genre?

I would have mentioned it, but I thought it to be more comedic, like Pani Poni Dash.

Well, it's the daily life of a hysterically mentally unstable teacher and his batcrap insane students and faculty, so I kinda thought it may. Feel free to correct me, though.
