Here's a slice of life for you.
36 6.9 7.41. Working!! (2010)
This is my all-time favourite Slice of Life anime simply because it makes me indiscribably happy. The humour of the series is ingenious and the cast of seiyuu consist of my absolute favourites. It even has a high rewatching value. By now I've repeatedly watched the 1st and 2nd season. I want a 3rd one though.
74 7.9 82. Natsume's Book of Friends (2008)
Also an all-time favourite, yet rather in the category of moving and melancholic Slice of Life. Almost every episode of Natsume Yuujinchou brought tears to my eyes. It has perfected the ability to bring across feelings, atmosphere and beauty. The characters are down-to-earth, cute and funny and the music...oh my, the music is something I could lose myself in forever. If I could live in another place I would choose the universe of Natsume and company.
292 7.2 8.13. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2006)
Despite being called: Haruhi Suzumiya no Yuuutsu (depression, melancholy) I always thought it was rather light-hearted. Of course, there are intense, complex or serious scenes every now and then but they never made me feel sad or antything like that. But that's what I appreciated. It has a well thought out story and I also love the male characters very much. However you look at it, it's a classic. The Endless-8 season wasn't as bad as everybody claims but it surely cannot compare to the original (excluding the animations). There was also a parody series with all the characters as chibis which was incredibly funny.
8 7.8 7.44. You & Me (2011)
Just recently put on air is this very down-to-earth series with the perfect mixture of humour and soothing atmosphere. The animation and overall art is beautiful and it's also one of the shows in which you feel with the characters a lot and grow terribly attached to them. That makes it troublesome as the show is about friends growing up together and I bet the ending will be heartbreaking when one has to part with the 'Kimi to Boku'- universe.
117 7.3 7.95. Lucky Star (2007)
Lucky Star, another mysterious classic. It has everything.
Every anime cliché parodied; every stereotype represented; every hair colour present; every wish for fanservice fulfilled at some point; every important anime reference made; every seiyuu perfectly chosen; every opportunity to create new memes successfully used. And of course it's got a catchy opening and ending and dance for every otaku to learn by heart. Yes, Lucky Star is incredibly addicting although it's just random randomness.
117 6.8 7.76. Air (2005)
This show is derived from the visual novel of the same title. From the first episode on you know how it will mess with your heart. The melancholy is overwhelmingly strong and makes it hard to not feel sad afterwards but it's worth it because one cannot always be hapy and this anime turned that unpopular emotion into a beautiful piece of art. For me it really was worth the experience because in the end I came to love this Slice of Life. I've got all the episodes on my computer but I will only rewatch them when I'm in not too high spirits.
108 7.8 8.47. Toradora! (2008)
I miss this show. I connect many things with it.
And most importantly it was just a really entertaining and sweet anime. The characters were original and fun and the romance was interesting and thrilling to follow. The opening always put me in an incredibly good mood, making me feel carefree. Unfortunately it has been some time since I last watched it so I have forgotten a lot of the plot.
93 7.2 7.88. K-ON! (2009)
This Slice of Life anime offered something additional to the usual randomness and daily life adventures. Cool music peformances and awesome J-Pop/Rock songs. I immediately fell in love with all of the characters and their interaction. On the one hand 2 seasons were enough but on the other hand I missed the series a lot after it was over. Luckily recently a K-ON! film has been released.
39 7.8 7.89. Daily Lives of High School Boys (2012)
24 6.1 7.610. Sukisho (2005)
I really need to rewatch this show again because it has been quite a while since I finished it.
But I remember that I greatly enjoyed it. It's Shounen-Ai Slice of Life after all. I can recall that it was way too short and very cute and romantic, with loveable characters and a coherent story.
306 7 8.111. Ranma ½ (1989)
When I was young I didn't miss one episode of this anime.
It was funny and had a great plot. The characters were memorable and entertaining. Unfortunately someday it stopped airing and I did never take the time to re-watch/ continue watching it in the original version. I really have to though because the concept of Ranma 1/2 is fantastic.
116 6.3 6.512. Hamtaro (2002)
This was also an anime which I watched in my childhood and oh! how I adored this anime till it's very last episode. It is obviously for a young audience but that doesn't make it less enjoyable. There were so many different characters with all kinds of different traits and personalities. (Although I was never fond of Hamtaro himself.) They always had new exciting adventures coming for them and every now and then a value was transmitted to the watcher. Furthermore it's hamsters we are talking about. That's cuteness to the max. Nowadays I would probably not look at it again though (except for nostalgic reasons).
P.S. Do you see that hamster with the string bass? That is 'Jingle' or "Iro" as he was called in the german dub. I loved that little chap. He was the only character I actually liked. Just saying. ;)
23 7.6 7.413. Minami-ke (2007)
Slice of Life alright. But a weird one.
Absurd characters with an absurd daily life. But that's what makes it so much fun to watch. Yet as the second and third season and also the OVA came out I noticed how I disliked the animations more and more. The OPs/EDs were horrible from the beginning but actually all that matters is the content after all which is hilarious.
