The issue I see with topic of lolis is they sometimes are shown in a sexual way, even more so in recent anime, under the guise of comedy. Eromanga-sensei for example: the anime is rated PG-13 and officially doesn’t mention ecchi as genre. Naked - censored! - minors, panties being pulled down, bikinis, lewd behaviour, etc.
And then there are lolis like Kanna. Not sure if I sound ridiculous but I’d compare that kind of loli to a cute puppy or kitten.
The lines are blurry for some, as those cases are often seen as edgy, not actually sexual. Like “It’s okay because technically she’s several hundred years old”, I don’t think anyone would actually make that statement without being 100% sarcastic about it (or at least I hope so).
OreImo starts off interesting (with the little sister of the MC wanting a little sister - not in a sexual way), but goes the trash route.
Most of those anime at least have an interesting idea…if it wasn’t for the lewd part.
Imouto sae Ireba Ii for example goes completely bonkers in the first 2min or so which makes you think “oh for fucks sake, who thought this shit was okay?”. The most cringe I ever endured in an anime. Worth it though. There are edgy moments in the anime but the very first few minutes just fuck with you and make you think this is utter pedo trash that really makes you question the sanity of those in charge of producing this.
I just want some good wholesome anime, like Code Geass where the government starts exterminating civilians living in a ghetto in the first episode. Or Death Note or Gundam iron blooded orphans or psycho pass.
Those are often in the Slice of Life category.
Barakamon is among my favorite in that regard.
Also Non Non Biyori and K-On.
Mikakunin de Shinkoukei is also romance (in an innocent way).
Flying Witch is good too.
