Top Romance/Slice of Life Stories

Top Romance/Slice of Life Stories
Romance/slice of life stories I really enjoyed, and some of these are the best novels I've read. Quite some of these are really sweet (at least I think so), so prepare yourselves.

Note: NU doesn't classify some of these as slice of life but I would. Also some harem so if you don't like it you can skip over those. Mostly JP. No R18. No shoujo/josei either.

If you have anything you'd like to recommend to me, please do, I'd appreciate it.

Another one of my favorites. Be warned as there's lots of sugar. There's almost no drama in here. No major conflicts. It's just a chill story of a guy who grows his almighty harem. One of the characters in the afterword best describe it: *explodes into sugar* ... more>>

Title might seem plain, but I think it fits the novel nicely. It starts of a bit slow, but it is a solidly built story and gets really interesting. Romance starts pretty late so be patient. It's mainly comedy and adventure. A hilarious one at that. Worst part about this novel is that our poor FL doesn't get enough screentime, sadly.... more>>

Underrated. Horribly underrated in my opinion. I really liked this story, though perhaps the MC's relationships to the other characters could have been developed more.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'm reading this right now and haven't really seen the romance fully bloom yet, but it has been very enjoyable.

    Hey! Never read some of these novels, so thanks for the list clear.pngclear.png

    Now some of my recommendations (CN and KR):

    - Kidnapped Dragons (slice of life + romance): really good. Wholesome + nice romance + fluff with bittersweet moments.

    - The Record of Unusual Creatures (slice of life + romance): slow at the beginning, but it pays off the read (and if you're into slice of life, the beginning is even enjoyable!). Criminally underrated (in my opinion). There's no harem and the romance is not really the focus.

    - SSS-class su*cide Hunter (romance): not really slice of life, but beautiful romance arc. Cringy name but it's actually a  masterpiece. Personal favorite.

    - Release that Witch (kingdom building + romance): it does have some slice of life in it, but the main focus is kingdom building. A good story in general.

    - Ending Maker (romance): it's not slice of life, but the interactions between the couple is really precious (and they're always together clear.png)

    - Gekkou (romance): a good story with romance, the focus here is mystery. It's a short story, so just give it a chance.

    - God of cooking (slice of life + romance): cooking tournament arc with romance, a great read.

    - I quit the going-home club for a girl with a venomous tongue (slice of life + romance): a good read and the end is the best part. Romance is the focus here.

    - Blunt type ogre girl's way to live streaming (slice of life + romance): shoujo ai with sweet interactions. Not much progress in the relationship, but they're like a married couple already.

    And that's all, sorry for my lack of vocabulary for the descriptions, but I'll be happy if I could help you in finding more novels to read clear.png

      Oh hey, let me know if you enjoy any of the novels I listed.

      Thanks for the recommendations too. I'll definitely give those a try after I finish the current novel I'm reading!
