100 Days of Anime, 66: Slice of Life Anime

Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo

Synopsis:
When abandoned kittens and his good conscience force second year Sorata Kanda to move into Suimei High School’s infamous Sakura Hall, the satellite dorm and its eccentric, misfit residents turn his life upside down. The decidedly average Sorata finds it difficult to fit in with the bizarre collection of dorm residents like Misaki, an energetic animator; Jin, a playwright playboy; Ryuunosuke, a reclusive programmer; and Chihiro, the dorm manager, art teacher, and party girl.
Sorata's friend Nanami, a second year student and aspiring voice actress, pushes him to find new owners for the many cats so that he can quickly move back into the regular dorms. However, his desire to escape Sakura Hall wavers when the pet-like and infantile second year Mashiro Shiina, a world-class artistic savant looking to become a mangaka, transfers in during the spring trimester and quickly latches onto him.
Supported by each other's quirks, Sorata and Mashiro come out of their shells and trigger change in the lives of those around them. Based on the light novel series of the same name, Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo explores the fine threads connecting talent, hard work, romance, and friendship with its ensemble cast.

This was another topic with slim pickings (I tend to watch more action/adventure/supernatural/shonen-type stuff; I'm not much for realistic fiction, but I'm branching out!). I'm pretty sure the only slice of life anime I've seen are this and Free!, which I talked about yesterday. This anime is so all over the place in the best way! The characters are super fun and awesome, and it's really cool to see how their relationships evolve! I also love how everything isn't hunky-dory; Sorata and Nanami's struggles are really interesting and relatable, being a couple of average Joes among all these talented individuals. I highly recommend this anime, and would like to give another shout-out to @LuffyNewman, without whom I probably never would have heard about it!
As always, hope you enjoyed! So glad to see this catching on! If you wanna learn more about me/ be my friend/ be tagged in these, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm nice, I swear (mostly ;p)! Or I guess you can follow my 100 Days of Anime collection, or both if you feel so inclined!
Until next time! Please, feel free to share your thoughts/answers in the comments! I love discussion!

Just finished! Now I kinda want a season 2, but I also kinda like the sort of optimistic, open-ended ending...
