>>
None, because SoL requires a certain kind of mindset that you either have or don't.
>>
K-On. If you don't like K-On, you should probably just stop watching anime.
>>
Naruto.
>>
Barakamon
>>
>>135336620
K-On
Yama no musume
Aria
Cowboy Bebop

K-On
Nichijou

The Devil is a Part-Timer is about half slice of life and half action. It's a good way to ease yourself into the slice of life worldview.

Cowboy bebop is really not SoL at all. It has a plot, eventually.

I'd still probably watch it.

Get a job, don't live on your parents' money <- important.
Then after a tiring day from workplace, watch a good slice of life anime.

Non Non Biyori

If that doesn't convert you, you have permanent shit taste.

NNB is too boring for entry level SOL.

I like these:
Bartender
Genshiken
Kino's Journey
The Garden of Words
Mushishi
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou
Tsuritama

Most SoL is garbage so it's not a surprise it's very hard finding good series for it.
Either jump right into something like Haibane renmei/School Rumble/Aria
And get a feel for what kind of Sol you enjoy
>>
Going outside if you live somewhere shitty
Working a shitty unfulfilling job

Also I'd say comfy yet dramatic series like Spice & Wolf are a pretty good bridge into the genre as well

I think it boils down to a lack of something important. I'm stuck in a soulless city working strange hours, so I appreciate Non Non Biyori. I'd much rather be stomping around the woods myself but that's not in the cards for another few months. I also missed my little sister, but I just got to see her for Christmas
>>
Nichijou is probably the most accessible slice-of-life show.

Maybe Barakamon too.
>>
>>135337715
This. The feeling of coming home from a day of tiring shit and watching the daily fill.
>>
>>135342316
Barakamon was pretty good. Enjoyed both the OP and ED.
>>
>>135339789
The yearning to leave behind that lonely meaningless void your life has become after abandoning every ideal you ever had and to find joy and new meaning in the appreciation of the small precious things and moments in life.

Thanks for the recs guys.

This desu senpai. I watch SoL because my once big dreams are but memories of trying in failing in my teens/early 20's" So it's nice to escape once in a while. Live someone else life per say.
>>
>>135341287
I was a really happy person when I tried SoL anime for the first time and loved it, then again my first SoL was K-on! and that's really hard to hate unless you have a biased position towards cute anime.
>>
YuYuYu
>>
>>135336620
Ignore the other answers. Aria the Origination is the only one that can do that. But you need to watch the first two seasons first which was quite hard for me. The last season is on a whole different level than all other SOL you will ever watch.
>>
>>135336620
Hyouka, Toradora!, Spice and Wolf (does it count? it's solid SoL half the time).

These 3 back to back made me see the light, was never remotely interested before then.

Get out of my sight.

>>135336620
SoL comes in countless flavors and subgenres, so there's a lot to trial and error involved:

Iyashikei (escapism, happiness):
ARIA
Non Non Biyori
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou

Comedy:
Azumanga Daioh
Love Lab
Nichijou

Cute girls:
K-ON
Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka
Yuru Yuri

Serious:
Uchouten Kazoku
Shirobako
Mushishi

Special interest:
Sora no Woto (cute girls with war trauma)
Sakura Trick (lesbian kisses)
Seitokai Yakuindomo (lewd humor)

What?
No Hidamari Sketch?
First season is a little slow but after that it's one wild ride. The series having 4 seasons + 2 OVAs is not without reason.

And remember, when watching SoL, don;t rush all of it at once.
>>
>>135339601
School Rumble (Eri best grill) is definitely more RomCom/Harem than SoL, if anything along that line it'd be Minami-Ke
>>
But you already posted it OP.
fuck I want Avvenire already so bad

Lucky Star was my first SoL show and it converted me.
>>
>>135346595

Episodic and iyaskikei, but not slice of life.
>>
>>135347675
YKK > Quiet Country Cafe
>>
>>135344265
ah...
>>
>>135339789
I mostly feel empty and worried about my future so SoLs make me happy
>>
>>135347675
YKK anime by Dogakobo.
>>
K-On! was my gateway.
Very entertaining character interactions, girls are cute, top tier Kyoani visuals and character animation, and fun music.
Still my favorite anime.
>>
Is Yuru Yuri Slice Of Life or just plain comedy?
>>
>>135341070
It's specific enough that I don't care.

>>135344711
Assuming you're not OP, you'd be lurking for recs so it doesn't matter.
>>
>>135348712
It's both.
>>
The first 23 ish episodes of Hitman Reborn. The purest and comfiest slice of life feel i've ever got from any anime. Honestly. I wish more shounen anime started out like KHR

Working!!!
>>
Nichijou. To me it's one of the truest SoL animes out there.
>>
>>135336620
King of the Hill
>>
>>135349531
I saw 95% of these but not Ikoku Meiro.
Looks cute as fuck, I guess it's next on my watch list.
>>
>>135350767
It would mean not much of either.
>>
>>135357930
It makes more sense if you think in percents.
>>
>>135358806
That would still imply mutual exclusivity, no? For every percent of healing, you sacrifice a percent of comedy (and vice-versa).

Unless the magnitude of these things is ignored by the graph, of course. In which case something at the centre could have both more healing and comedy than something at the extremes.
>>
>>135346595
everytime there's a SoL thread nobody mentions Fuujin monogatari. Have anons forgotten an excellent SoL with a unique artstyle? I think that the last time I saw it here was buried deep in some 3x3 thread

Windy Tales is well respected here, I think. Mostly because of the art, not so much for its story, which meandered a bit too much, after a strong start. Great ending too, but everything in between seemed a bit pointless.

What about Fruits Basket?
Sometimes I think this is THE anime that resembles Aria the most, at least because of its atmosphere and the fact that the MC's are so similar.
>>
>>135359645
>Fruits Basket
I watch it in TV during high school.First "cartoon" i recognise is Anime.God tier OP and ED

>>135336620
Listen to >>135337038.

Azumanga Diaoh is good stuff.
>>
>>135339518
>The Garden of Words
This had gorgeous animation, but I found the plot and (to a lesser extent) the characters mediocre.

I'd say to give this a watch mostly for the animation and the relaxed pacing in the first 60-80% of it's runtime.
