Slice of Life Anime from Summer 2016 Season You Should to Watch

Many summer anime that has reach the final season, and this summer season apparently is a paradise for slice of life genre fans.

There are three slice of life anime genre that I recommended for you to watch from summer season. You can count it Re Life, Orange, and Handa-kun.

1. Re Life Anime




If you are around 27 years old, and unemployed or jobless, this anime is suitable for you :lol , unlucky that is my condition when first time watch this anime, haha.
Re Life tell story about a 27 years old NEET(Not in Education, Employment, or Training), Kaizaki Arata. Actually he ever has permanent job after graduate but it is only survive for 3 months because he get some problem with his workplace. After quit from the job, he only get a part time job until he 27 years old.
At that time he get offering from Re Life agent, to become object experiment to back into high school student. The goal is to improve social skill and self confidence of Arata.
This is not time travelling, he only eat some pills which has effect make a person's appearance like a teenager.
Although this anime full of comedy, sometimes there are a serious life lessons that can get from Re Life story.

2. Orange Anime




Same like Re Life this anime tell story about a group of 26-27 years old, who send a letter to themself in the past 10 years, which when they are high school student. The letter is to prevent and save their friend, Kakeru Naruse who died because suicide.

Different from Re Life which has many comedy element on the story, Orange fill with drama, romance and tragedy event which make this story really sad and tragic.

This anime adapted from Ichigo Takano manga with same title, and also has get live action film in 2015.


3. Handa-kun Anime




If you ever watch Barakamon, you maybe familiar with name Handa Sei. Handa-kun anime is a prequel story from Barakamon. It's set six years before the event of Barakamon, which Handa Sei is a high school student.

In the time, Handa Sei character described as a boy who has negative thinking to the surrounding environment. He always thinking he is the most hated person in the school or think as victims of bullying, but otherwise his friend is really admired him, for the beginning because he is the young talented calligrapher, but after that because many misunderstanding that happened in the story, their friend really admired him as a kind, cool person and others positive image.

It is really funny and also feel exasperated to see the misunderstanding between Handa and his friend.

To Keep the Sky Blue

To keep the sky blue,
We escaped the night, and the sun will rise again
We felt the warmth of the field after the rain had stopped
Unable to restrain ourselves, we ran forward, a group of youthful souls
Without noticing the sound of our footsteps
Or having the time to look back,
We just looked forward and chased after the clouds
That's right, my field of vision rises toward tomorrow
The sweat that fell on the pitcher's mound disappears in a flash of light

To keep the sky blue,
We passed through the night, and the sun will shine upon us again
People living out their summer dreams,
Light a flame in your youthful souls

English Translation

Gathering up all of our dreams
Going to search for our desires
One Piece

Compasses only cause delays
Filled with excitement, I take the helm

If we can prove the dusty old treasure map,
Then it's not a legend anymore!

It's alright if our personal problems
Get on someone else's nerves
Because we think about them too much

Gathering up all of our dreams
And going to search for our desires
A coin in the pocket, and
You wanna be my friend?
We are, we are on the cruise! We are!

Even though I believe everything I'm told
When my shoulders are shoved, I take a one-step lead

If we ever meet again, I'll tell you all about
What I've been doing and where I'm headed next

So being in a pinch is always
A good opportunity to appeal to someone
With excess self-consciousness!

Full speed through the stingy night!
I'm not interested in treasure anyway
A romance in the pocket, and
You wanna be my friend?
We are, we are on the cruise! We are!

Gathering up all of our dreams
And going to search for our desires
A coin in the pocket, and
You wanna be my friend?
We are, we are on the cruise! We are!

We are! We are!

And be stronger this is our treasure

Let's go SHINING! RUNNING! FOREVER

I'm sure that our bonds will never have to change
Our dream at the end shines so brightly
Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up heart beat!

(Spoken)

“I’ll engulf you in the shadows, Strawhat!”

“You won’t beat me! I’m the guy who’ll find One Piece and become the King of Pirates!!”

We will ride and travel more than what you expected
Tomorrow and the other days will be so intense
So hold on for excitement!

Let's grab now our dream at the end
Never! Never! Never! Never stop it!
WE ARE THE ONE! GO AHEAD!

English Translation

Burn your passion
We'll definitely catch our dreams someday
Start running without looking back
And charge through the cold night

Even though there was something shouting in my heart
I pretended not to be aware of it
Whipped by strong rain and wind
My heartbeat woke me up

That's right
I can't forget the naughty way of life I had
If I can feel my blood burning
That's all I need, I don't need anything else

Burn your passion
Start running towards your dream
Burn your hands with your passion
Climb up without taking your eyes off of it
To make sure your still alive

With these buildings in the middle of the valley
I can't sleep without knowing the meaning of freedom
My thirsty throat throws away desires
To go to that wild land

No one can hold down
My heart full of desire
If I do things to the best of my ability
That's all I want to know

Burn your desire
Engulf it in flames
Move forward with no hesitation
Then you can become the wind and change the world

Burn your passion
We'll definitely catch our dreams someday
Start running without looking back
And charge through the cold night

Burn your passion
Start running towards your dream
Burn your hands with your passion
Climb up without taking your eyes off of it
To make sure your still alive

Burn your desire
Engulf it in flames
Move forward with no hesitation
Then you can become the wind and change the world

Top 10 Best Selling Manga 2015 in Japan

The year of 2015, is still the year for Eiichiro Oda's manga One Piece. The manga has become the best selling manga in Japan since 2009 until 2015, which in 2015 One Piece get sales 14,102,521 copies. Followed by The The Seven Deadly Sins and Attack on Titan  with 10,304,112 and 8,778,048 copies in the second and third position.

Here is the the complete list for the Top 10 Best Selling Manga 2015 in Japan.

1One PieceEiichiro OdaShueisha14,102,521
2The Seven Deadly SinsNakaba SuzukiKodansha10,304,112
3Attack on TitanHajime IsayamaKodansha8,778,048

8Terra FormarsStory: Yū Sasuga / Art: Kenichi TachibanaShueisha4,188,158
9Prison SchoolAkira HiramotoKodansha4,058,119
10Tokyo Ghoul:reSui IshidaShueisha3,758,541

If you wondering, where is One Punch Man Manga? Saitama is on eleven position. So why the popularity of anime cannot help the manga sales like others anime adaptation that can boost their manga sales (Prison School, The Seven Deadly Sins, Attack on Titan) ?
The anime is airing October 2015, while the above list best selling only cover sales from November 17, 2014 to November 22, 2015. So I think, just in a month the airing of anime tv series cannot make big impact to manga sales in 2015. I predict One Punch Man manga will get huge sales in 2016.
