Top 10 Best Slice of Life Anime


The Top Ten

1 Lucky Star Lucky Star Lucky star is an anime that first aired (april 8th, 2007 to September 16th, 2007) in Japan. The anime follows the daily lives of Konata Izumi, Kagami and Tsukasa hiiragi, and Miyuki Takura. The show is best known for the cute "moe" characters. The target audience is shouen.

K-On was good, but honestly it's got nothing on Lucky Star.

2 Barakamon

At first the topic seems boring but as the story unfolds itself I just can't put it down.
It is extremely refreshing and can help lift up anyones spirits.
A highly recomended manga...

3 Kanon
4 Welcome to the NHK!
5 K-On! K-On!

The best anime ever made. It makes Lucky Star look like trash. Yet Lucky Star does that itself.

K-on is actually not a slice of life but I really like it

Oh, I like this one - RockStarr

6 Fruits Basket Fruits Basket After the accident in which she lost her mother, 16-year-old Tooru moves in with her grandfather, but due to his home being renovated, is unable to continue living with him.

I found this the best - RockStarr

7 The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
8 Azumanga Daioh

One of the funniest anime I’ve ever seen! This was the first slice-of-life I ever saw. Not only that, but Azumanga Daioh was recommended to me by a friend 2 years ago, and it single-handedly fuelled my anime obsession. I’ve been an otaku ever since!

10 Love Hina Love Hina

The Contenders

11 Clannad Clannad Clannad is the anime adaptation of the visual novel developed by KEY for Windows PCs in 2004, which was later ported to PlayStation consoles and the Xbox 360. The game was the best-selling PC game in 2004 and charted in national top 50 rankings several more times afterwards. Clannad has been adapted more.

Cringey, but sometimes relatable! Definitely not as bad as Kiss X Sis or some other garbage.
