Hidamari Sketch

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Azumanga Daioh

While both Hidamari and Azumanga share many categorical similarities, as decribed by other users, there is also a less definable quality shared by both series. You don't get any sense of the writers trying to pander to an audience; both shows always feel true to themselse and not forced. The stories and characters feel more thought out and genuine than in your typical anime, with very little in either series feeling "typical" to begin with.  If you enjoy the slice of life genre, I highly suggest both of these anime. Two of my all-time top ten.
