Synopsis

At Suimei High, the Sakura-sou dormitory is infamous for housing the school's most notorious delinquents. Thus, when the relatively tame Sorata Kanda is transferred to the dorm, escaping this insane asylum becomes his foremost goal. Trapped there for the time being, he must learn how to deal with his fellow residents, including bubbly animator Misaki Kamiigusa, charming playboy writer Jin Mitaka, and the ever-reclusive Ryuunosuke Akasaka. Surrounded by weirdness, Sorata frequently finds respite in his interactions with his one "normal" friend, aspiring voice actress Nanami Aoyama.

When Mashiro Shiina—a new foreign exchange student—joins the dormitory, Sorata is instantly enraptured by her beauty. Underneath her otherworldly appearance, Mashiro is an autistic savant, capable of world-renowned brilliance in her art, yet unable to perform simple daily tasks. After Sorata ends up in charge of taking care of Mashiro, the two inevitably grow closer, with Sorata's initial desire to escape the dormitory becoming a forgotten goal.

Despite their eccentricities, every resident is incredible in their own field, leaving Sorata to contend with his own lack of any particular skill. With brilliance all around him, he thus strives to become an equal to their talent. Revolving around the hardships and joys of its colorful cast, Sakura-sou no Pet na Kanojo is a heartwarming coming-of-age tale of friendship, love, ambition, and heartbreak—through the lens of an ordinary person surrounded by the extraordinary.

Definitely one of the best School Life Animes.
It had a lot of Slice of Life moments (It did the best job at it). I'd give it a 10 If it mainly focused on that aspect.
However you'll not even find that on the genre.
Here's a well defined rating.

Comedy: 6/10
Drama: 10/10
Romance: 7/10 Incomplete
School 10/10
Not on genre. Slice of life: 9/10

“The Pet Girl of Sakurasou” is what happens when You create a cast of characters with potential and instead of polishing them You just let them loose in clichetown.

Ok… let’s get one thing out of the way. This show is classified under “drama” and “romance”. It’s pretty much bullshit. The drama is lacklustre and romance almost non-existent. It tries, I’ll give it that, but fails to deliver any kind of emotional impact on both fronts in the last stretch. It’s just a slice of life show with elements of comedy, drama and a little bit (and that’s me being generous) of romance.

We experience the show ...

In today's day and age, where there are more shows than ever being created, produced and released, I don't understand how this one, a categorically terrible anime, is beloved by many.

I would like to point out, I understand the themes of the narrative and how failure, hardwork and perseverance aren't enough to get you through life and get you what you want and that's a fine idea. But this show does nothing to counteract the constant failures and disappointments with anything satisfying, rewarding, entertaining or enjoyable. A majority of the characters are unlikeable. The extreme melodramatic nature of every single action, reaction, situation and relationship ...
