American Slice of Life Anime

Slice of life animation is big in Japan & it's secretly a thing in America but just doesn't officially wear the title in the same way. I don't want to include the big animated sitcoms like "The Simpsons", "Bob's Burgers", or any of the Seth MacFarlane shows; although they do fit too. I just don't think they fit this particular list. Categorized by its usually down to Earth characters and daily life scenarios, it's possibly my favorite genre of show. There are some that go for a more exaggerated tone, but there's a certain level of reality engrained that makes it all relatable. Here's some of my favorite shows that I think fit the mold:



 Rocko's Modern Life

 As Told By Ginger 

Hey Arnold 

Pepper Ann


The Proud Family

Harvey Beaks

We Bare Bears 

 The Amazing World of Gumball
