Title says it all; I'm currently reading Dreamin' Sun and I'm totally in love! It's not only cute but also has a sweet slice of life element to it. You really get to see the characters progress. So, I'm wondering if there are any other shoujo manga out there with a nice slice of life plot? The overall tone of the story should be sweet and light but not absolute fluff.

Any recommendations?

Maybe Love So Life, Gakuen Babysitters (though it's not listed that way, this is the feeling I get), Eensy Weensy Monster. Kokoro ni Hana o!! is a personal favorite.

These are non-shoujo: YKK, Yoningurashi, [m]Yotsubato&![/m] (the ultimate in slice-of-life, if you haven't read it), Aria.

...Some of these may be more fluff than plot? Your mileage may vary. smile

First are the One-shots:

Akai Michi Ahh, I love this one, it's one of the first manga's I've read and I haven't even forgotten it.
Bus Hashiru This one is a great, and I repeat, a great collection of one-shots.

Complete series:

Taiyou no Uta 1 volume. It's a josei and a tragedy but nonetheless amazing *sob*
Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan 1 volume. This one is seinen too but you don't know what you're missing if you don't read it. *sob too*
Seishun Kouryakuhon It has 2 volumes and it's in the guy's point of view.
Love Roma 5 VEERYY short volumes. I know what you're thinking, it's a seinen and has quite uhm, child-ish art? BUT!! But the art actually grows onto you and the plot is great.

Last are the ongoing series:

14-sai no Koi It only has one volume, 5 chaps, out but really you'll love it in an instant! READ IT. XD
Aozora Yell 5 volumes, 19 chaps. It really shows character growth and it sends a message of "Never give up on your dreams"
Kimi ni Todoke Maybe you've already read this? It has 66 chapters out. It is a great story and really a slow slow romance, but in the later chapters it seemed to be dragging on for some people, but I still like it. smile
