Saddle Club vs Slice of Life anime

Posted on Updated on


“Saddle Club follows the life of three young girls as they make their way through their horse riding classes and develop their friendships”, without any knowledge of the show it would be safe to assume that this show was an anime about young girls and horses. It’s actually an Australian show which aired in 2001, and its one of my childhood favourite shows. I think that this show and other shows like this set me up for watching slice of life anime, because instead of watching episodic action packed cartoons I was introduced to “mundane”, adolescent drama with relationships that were built up over a number of episodes and new characters constantly being added to the dynamic. I was basically groomed to enjoy Genshiken and Haruhi at a young age.
