Thanks for the warm welcome! And sorry. I'll try to be less punishing with my walls-o-text but make no promises. I will try, though!
My favorite anime? Gah! That's going to be tough. I feel like I have to do it by genre, and yet... must keep this short! If I was to be stuck with one movie for weeks I'd probably be either Spirited Away or Lupin the 3rd - The Castle of Caglistro. Those are just two that immediately sprang to mind and that I've seen countless times. For series, that's even harder. Ronigirl
, since you asked about Slice of Life in particular; K-on!, Squid Girl, and Azumanga Daioh. I also just started watching Non Non Biyori and I have to admit the first couple of eps really made me smile so I'll go on and add that in. Oh, and Kamichu. I'm really bad at choosing.
For the other genres; Oreimo, Mushi-shi, Chobits, Cowboy Bebop, Haibane Renmei, Ah! My Goddess, and Kokoro Connect to name a few with honorable mention going to Sailor Moon & Tenchi Muyo for being two of my firsts.
Again, thanks for the welcome everyone! Happy to be here!
