Akebi-chan no Sailor-fuku (Akebi’s Sailor Uniform) is a Japanese Slice of Life manga series written and illustrated by Hiro. An anime TV series adaptation by CloverWorks premiered in January 2022. I absolutely adore the stunning animation and vivid art style of this show. Even though the plot may be straightforward, it’s still a joy to watch and truly a visual treat. If you’re looking for a way to relax and unwind, I highly recommend giving this series a watch.
The series follows a simple slice-of-life premise that is unique in its own way: a happy-go-lucky country girl is accepted into the prestigious middle school her mother also attended. She wants only two things: to wear the school’s sailor uniform and to make lots of friends!

8. Daily Lives of High School Boys
This comedic show is about the daily hilarious life of high school boys.
The basis is very similar in both anime: they are about the daily experiences of high school students who are also friends.
The shows are episodic in nature and have many funny gags.

Wasteful Days of High School Girl depicts the ridiculous days of three quirky high school friends.
Both Akebi-chan no Sailor-fuku and Wasteful Days of High School Girl are set in an all-girls school and follow the daily interactions of the students (friends). However, this show is way more on the comedic side, so keep that in mind.
6. Today’s Asuka Show
Kyou no Asuka Show is full of awkward ecchi situations due to the heroine’s cluelessness.
While the anime shows don’t seem similar on the surface, when you think of it more, they are both slice of life anime with a carefree and naive schoolgirl as the protagonist. The whole focus of these anime is on the main character and her interactions with various characters, plus some fanservice scenes.

K-On! is another relaxing, laid-back anime like Akebi-chan no Sailor-fuku with the female main character interacting with other girls, filled with all sorts of comical situations that ensue from that.
