Day 9 of Anime

Okay, I’ll stop mentioning how hard this is because it’s getting old but having to make a decision sure is difficult. Now that is aside, let’s focus on the new anime topic/question for today!

Day 9 - Favorite slice of life anime

I kind of need to guess at what exactly is classified as ‘slice of life’, because if you look at this list of slice of life anime, it’s clearly not very long when there are at least a dozen more titles I would have thrown in. But anything to lesson the numbers of choices I need to choose between is welcome in my book.

Now what from this list would I consider in my top? Let’s make a short list, since I like making those. Keep it short and sweet, self. Stop getting carried away talking too muc– oh.

  • Bakuman
  • Anohana: Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai
  • Daily Lives of High School Boys

From Wikipedia’s list of slice of life anime - I have yet to watch Silver Spoon, but want to watch it and see if it would make my list. This list doesn’t make that much sense though when Kimi to Boku 2 is present on it, but the first one isn’t. What the? Oh fuck it I’m dropping the Wikipedia list, because Sakamichi no Apollon and Usagi Drop are on this list and I definitely loved those.

I’m not including anime movies in this though and I definitely think you’re crazy if you like Clannad: Afterstory, but that’s coming from someone who can’t abide by the first Clannad, let alone a sequel.

Okay, enough beating about the bush. What to pick…. hmm. Going by this list now, I have no choice but to pick SKET DANCE. No matter how many times I watch it, it never gets old and is always amusing. Biases, ah. The choice is so close though. So, so close. Any minute I could change my mind– Orenchi no Jijo Furo Suzumiya Haruhi Wakako-zake Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki STOP! RUN! RUN! RUNNNNNN!!

(Otherwise, I go with Sakamichi no Apollon.)
