Minami is an air-headed girl who is starting high school and who loves eating bread for breakfast. Baked goods bring happiness everyday to her and her classmates —the reliable Yuu, the pastry-baking Fuyumi, and the independent Noa.
Both of these anime are about young, sweet girls brought together by their shared passions. Neither have much action, and tend to focus on the interactions between the girls and teaching viewers about the subjects (mountain climbing and bread). While it may seem silly to compare a love for mountain climbing to a love of bread, these shows are actually pretty similar! If you enjoyed one, you'd probably enjoy the other.
Both anime are about a group of girls who bond over a shared passion (mountain climbing is Encouragement of Climb and bread in Pan de Peace!). Both series are also cute and have short episodes. Fans of one series will probably enjoy the other.
These two shorts are about girls with a specific interest. In Pan de Peace, it's bread; for Encouragement of Climb, it's climbing. The focus is really on the friendships, and both have a gentle, slightly silly atmosphere.
A photograph is a mysterious force that creates magical moments the instant the shutter closes and allows people’s hearts to connect. For the new girl in town, Fuu Sawatari, this is more than a saying but a way of life as she spends her days quietly attempting to capture those special instances on film and use them to bring others joy. Along with her friends – and her beloved camera – Fuu reminisces about her father, begins to contemplate where her future lies and wonders whether she can capture more of the mysterious Tamayura light bubbles in her photos filled with warmth and friendship.
Although they center around two different hobbies, Yama no Susume and Tamayura are quite similar. They're both slice of life shows dealing with a young girl moving forward with the help of her friends. Yama no Susume is shorter and not as mellow as Tamayura, but they definitely share the same atmosphere. If you're looking for something that's short and sweet, give these titles a try.
Encouragement of Climb reminds me a lot of Junichi Sato's style of slice-of-life (I think he calls them "healing" anime), such as Tamayura. Though they're about cute teenage girls, both prioritize relaxation over silly jokes.
Haruno Shizoaki is a young high school student living in a Japanese rustic small municipality. After sixteen years stuck there, she wants to leave her hometown, but is uneasy about the future. She then meets Cynthia B. Rogers, an Australian who has ridden her bike through many countries around the world and will now work at Niwa, a café owned by Haruno´s family. Cynthia´s presence makes Haruno think about many things and inspires her friends to consider a more adventurous lifestyle.
It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!
Yuno is a high school student who dreams of becoming a famous artist; and after being admitted at Yamabuki High School of Arts, she is one step closer to her dream. Yuno must move to an apartment complex near the school, and there, in Hidamari-so, she meets three new friends: Miyako, a very active person who will do anything to get her hands on something to eat; Hiro, an upperclassman who is obsessed with weight gain; and Sae, the oldest of the bunch and also a tomboy. From wild cosplaying teachers to bizarre school myths, Yuno and friends enjoy fun times and crazy days at Yamabuki High!
Another super relaxing and adorable series about cute girls doing cute things, that's centered around one particular hobby (either art or mountaineering). Both use a lot of pastel colors and are less energetic than most slice-of-life series of this type.
