Slice of life genre isn’t something I watch regularly mainly because I am certainly more invested in action or thriller genre. But I personally think that slice of life is a genre that one needs to watch as a break from some serious stuff. Most people think that there is mostly romance when it comes to SOL but it is not so. The plots of this genre aren’t much serious or complicated. REally life is mostly uninteresting and doesn’t have that spicy movie element. This genre captures it beautifully. I guess that is why they call it Slice of life. Anyway, this list is a compilation of top slice of life anime ever. You can watch some of these best slice of life anime on Netflix, Crunchyroll and YouTube.
12. Free! (2013)
I enjoyed watching ‘Free!’. It is a nice anime that just lets you relax and enjoy. It is a sports genre anime which focuses on swimming. One of the main characters of the series is Haruka Nanase who just loves swimming. He was part of a swimming team with three of his friends namely Makoto Tachibana, Rin Matsuoka, and Nagisa Hazuki. They won a tournament but were later separated as they went to different schools. Fate brought them back as they were reunited in high school. But one member was less. That was Rin. He was in a different school and did not want to go back to the swimming team. He rather wanted to challenge Haruka and prove he is better. Needing a fourth member to complete their team Nagisa recruits Rei Ryuugazaki.

11. Mushishi (2005)
I have two words to describe this anime, interestingly weird. Yup, that’s what it is as far as I am concerned. ‘Mushishi’ is a highly rated anime series and has around 26 episodes. So, what is the plot, you ask? Well, it is kinda difficult to explain the plot of ‘Mushishi’. For that, you need to understand what a Mushi is. According to the anime, Mushi is a primitive spiritual form of life having certain physical existence. They try to live off living hosts like a parasite. The hosts generally become diseased or crippled and some may even die. Ginko is a Mushi-shi, a ponderer on the subject of Mushi. He wants to discover more about these beings. His investigation leads him to various places which may have been affected by them.
