I wanted to write one more article for some of the great summer anime of this year, and decided I’d compare and contrast three of my favorites–which all happened to be slice-of-life shows!

Meanwhile EDs are generally nice as a bit of a breather to follow the episode, or to experiment a bit in terms of art any music style. Below are some of my favorites this season–I’ll start with the EDs first.
