In the slice of life genre, has-anything come close or beaten Azumanga Daioh?
>>
I thought Yuru Yuri came close, but Azumanga Daioh has something special about it.

The scene where Osaka has a dream where she accidentally kills Chiyo by removing her pigtails and then flies away was actually the first thing I ever saw from an anime (except obviously Sailor Moon, DBZ and Pokemon that everyone saw as kids), many years ago now. I remember thinking it was absolutely hilarious and watching the entire series in two or three nights.

>>117546053
I just feel like Azumangas pacing and Charechters are just done amazingly and nothing similar to it has the same spark.
>>
>>117545961
No, azumanga is a masterpiece of SoL genre
>>
Going from the bottom working up to the best,
First up a couple honour mentions, like Hidamari Sketch,
Mitsudomoe, Pani Poni,Yuyushiki and Yuru Yuri,
Suzamiya Haruhi, Non Non Biyori
Strawberry Marshmallow Mosiac and Working,
I got a list, here's the order of the shit that it's in:
It goes Lucky Star,K-On, Mosaic, A Channel,
Sketchbook, Tamayura, then Azumanga Daioh,
>>
>>117546215
Not really, you could just answer "yes" or "no" to his question.
>>
Still one of my favorite shows and I don't even like SoL in general
>>
>>117547123
And even generic SoL doesn't come close to even the weakest Iyashikei SoL.
Aria is and always will be the king.

does nichibros count as slife?

Nichijou is insufferable greater the Azumanga Daioh. And any other SoL series

>>117545961
In terms of comfiness Hidamari Sketch surpasses it and in terms of comedy Ichigo Mashimaro does.

>>117546231

I find Azumanga difficult to recommend these days. Its slow paced humour can be really hard to grasp. I'd probably put Hidamari above it.

NNB is good, but you can't compare it to shows like Hidamari Sketch or Azumaga Daioh, which both introduced something new to the genre while NNB was very generic.

>>117545961
Yuru Yuri, but some episodes in S1 were kinda eh. S2 was so good. Hidamari Sketch too, but S4 was the worst.

Azumanga Daioh got the mindfuck elements just right. Most other SoL series I've seen have either been too comfy and safe or trying way too hard to be off-the-wall and crazy.

Dont even kid about that. NNB was just as good if not better then HS or AD. It had music, animation, artwork and even the comedy was chuckle worthy. It is more sole then both HS and AD because it did not focus so much on comedy.

Nope.

Some of the jokes may go on too long for some people's taste. It's one of the reasons I would suggest the manga a bit more readily. You can read that as fast or slow as you like. Hell, that's part of the reason Azuma's hesitant to make a Y! anime.

Yuyushiki is the only thing in recent years that's felt anywhere close, but even it has it's own thing.

It depends what you want our of a series. What people want matters on how you rank things.

If you want a fast paced comedy with cutesy moments:
Pani Poni Dash
Yuru Yuri
Nichijou
+Tic Elder Sister

If you want a truly laid back healing show with great "atmosphere":
A Channel (very underrated)
Sketchbook ~full colors~
Tamayura (Also very underrated, IMO the best healing anime of all time)
Non Non Biyori
Tamako Market
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou

If you want something akin to satire that basically adds to the genre more than tell a story:
Joshiraku
Lucky Star
K-On

If you want a balance between comedy, cute moments and true "daily life":
Azumanga Daioh (arguably the best)
Working!! (Some-one vouch for me, it's on my list)
Going Home Club (same)
Kirino Mosaic
Hidemari Sketch
Strawberry Marshmallow
Natsuiro Kiseki

Of course I'm missing a few, but these are the easy to identify ones.
Others:
Usagi Drop
Upotte (behind all the "lolXD guns" is an SoL)
Rec
Sakurasou No Pet Na Kanojo
Danshi Koukousei No Nichijou

I find Azumanga Daioh to be really special because of the context needed to appreciate its clever jokes and the balance of comedy and heartwarming moments. I see the series as a celebration of childhood in which the characters are naturally allowed to act themselves and not as performers for the audience, their peculiarities just make it hilarious unbeknownst to them who see themselves as perfectly normal. The show gives each character an episode dedicated to themselves effective changing the wavelength of that particular episode. I still wouldn't put it on par with certain SOL series like YKK.

As much as I love SoL, and not minding "boring" series. I felt that Azumanga Daioh fell flat trying to keep my attention.

They definitely had great moments that were laugh out loud enjoyable, as well as having a diverse and rich cast despite all being high school girls/teachers. But what went wrong was the moments that lasted lifetimes, cuts were shown too long and silence happened a whole bunch.

I understand that was part of the comedy they were presented, I just didn't find it humorous especially when it was being fanatically weird other times.

I felt the same sort of boredom with Ichigo Mashimaro. They were both comfy, but there were times where I was multi-tasking from trying to keep myself from being bored.

- - -
For my favorite general SoL it's Kimi to Boku

For Comedy-related SoL it's either Nichijou or Nichibros. Very close and I just can't decide.

Granted it's been a long time since I watched Azumanga Daioh, but I don't recall any of it being boring. Even the downtime where nothing much was happening, someone would say something that was funny in an understated way or Kaorin would go apeshit in the background or something like that. Definitely don't remember K-On or Aria-style sitting around doing literally nothing.

The less frantic parts were vital in letting you get to know the characters, so when things eventually kicked off it was even funnier.
>>
>>117553733
Cuts weren't as long as they were in AD. AD had 15-20 second stares going on and then would cut to another scene, wouldn't always have a punchline like you would with Nichijou.

Plus Nichijou was wackier a majority of a time.

Oh God of course not. Just the blank stares ticked me off. It wouldn't be so well liked if they did nothing (unless you're an idiot).

>The less frantic parts were vital in letting you get to know the characters
Of course, very important. I enjoyed that because it being a comedy it touched on realistic emotions that a person can feel.

I always laugh at graduation episodes in anything, because they always make it really touching and sentimental and I just think back to my own High School graduation.

Of course there are. Azumanga Daioh is the FF7 of SoL anime; many of its fans experienced it as their gateway into the genre and treat it as the end-all-be-all of said genre while even though it is good, is far from god's gift to the medium.

I'd have to say "no", based on the SoL's that I'm aware of. It's not that there aren't other SoL's that are as entertaining if not even moreso than AD. And depending on your definition of SoL, it could cover a lot of ground, including stuff like Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. Even the recent Sabagebu!

But AD has just that right mixture of moe, meaness/teasing, and mindfuckery that no other series comes to mind as QUITE matching.

It's that unique mixture and going places that other series seem to fear treading. Other SoL tend to be too "safe". Or even if they incorporate "meaness" into their "moe", they lack the mindfuckery.

Ichigo Mashimaro had moe and meaness, but lacked mindfuckery. Sayonara Zetsubou-Sensei lacked the moe. Sabagebu! lacked moe and mindfuckery. Nichijou lacked meaness. Both K-On and Lucky Star were "safe". Working, Ika Musume, Minami-ke and Busou Shinki again, lack mindfucking.

It's not that none of the above aren't good or great. It's just that Azumanga scores high in most categories while the others cover fewer categories. Perhaps shows like Sabagebu! exceed AD in terms of having action sequences though. AD's pretty light in that category.

To be fair, those were probably comedic beats. Which may or may not jive with everyone. Everyone's got a different perception of time/timing in that regard. If their "timing" jived with you, it enhances the moment. If not, then it falls flat.

The anime honestly seems like it would be annoying to watch, with way over-exaggerated reactions being drawn out in time and volume. The comedy really seemed to depend on the timing and style of 4koma

I didn't like Azumanga all that much, it felt like it tried too hard to be a comedy and ended up failing.
>inb4 mad nostalgiafags
tell me, did you laugh even once while watching it? Not smiled or smirked, but actually laughed out loud. And no, watching while stoned/smashed with dudebros doesn't count.

>In the slice of life genre, has-anything come close or beaten Azumanga Daioh?
All seasons of Aria, Lucky Star, Sketchbook, K-On, Sora no Woto, Minami-ke (yes, even the non-existent season), Ika Musume, Hanasaku Iroha, Hidamari Sketch, Hyakko, Toradora
and that's just from a quick glance at one of my folders, I could name at least 3 times more if I tried

>>117553549
>I felt the same sort of boredom with Ichigo Mashimaro
I found that Ichigo Mashimaro distinguished itself from just a standard cute comedy with its healing moments, like episode 10. And even when it wasn't being healing the comedy was very well structured, enough at least to keep my attention.

And, while I am aware it's been nine hours, I have to say:
>Kimi to Boku
Excellent taste.
>>
>>117567500
>tell me, did you laugh even once while watching it? Not smiled or smirked, but actually laughed out loud
Yes, it's one of the few anime that ever makes me laugh out loud. Pretty much any scene with Osaka, Tomo, or Sakaki.

>Aria, Lucky Star, Hidamari Sketch
Now these are boring and unfunny.
>Toradora
That isn't even SoL, it's shitty romcom/melodrama.
>>
>>117567853
>Yes, it's one of the few anime that ever makes me laugh out loud. Pretty much any scene with Osaka, Tomo, or Sakaki.
you've got a shitty sense of humour

>Now these are unfunny
most of the shows that I listed have no comedic value whatsoever, they are just superior SoL shows compared to Azumanga.

>Toradora
>That isn't even SoL, it's shitty romcom/melodrama
that's like saying "Azumanga isn't SoL, it's just a shitty comedy"

Also to continue my list: Anohana, Clannad, Gj-bu, Genshiken, Gin no Saji, NNB, Kiniro Mosaic, Love Lab, Working, Usagi Drop, Yuru Yuri, Hyouka, Papakiki, Tamayura, Natsuiro Kiseki, Ichigo Mashimaro, Joshiraku, Tari Tari, White Album 2, Kanamemo
not 3 times as much, but I can't be bothered anymore
>>
>>117567984
>most of the shows that I listed have no comedic value whatsoever
Yeah they do. It's just really timid, boring comedy, especially in Aria and Hidamari.

>that's like saying "Azumanga isn't SoL, it's just a shitty comedy"
If you include Toradora as SoL, you also include shit like Sakurasou and Golden Time, and a whole lot of shitty harems. That doesn't really make sense, we have "romance" as a genre for a reason, to keep that crap away from pure SoL.
>>
>>117568178
>Yeah they do
no, most of them don't
>It's just really timid, boring comedy
and that's good, because unlike with Azumanga, it doesn't "steal the show".

I admit you have a point with Toradora, my bad.
