Hidamari Sketch, Yuyushiki Recommendations
You cannot go wrong with this one. Both are the higher profile manga serialzed on Manga Time Kirara. The noteworthy selling point of every manga in this magazine is girls' love. If you can't go a day without non-explicit girl-to-girl cuddling then both are the right choice.
Plot is not non-existent, but sadly, there are quite a lot of anime out there which qualified more as mild sex-sale than 30 minutes of storytelling. It's possible to praise how good the story, jokes, puns, and conversation is, but at the end of the day many people watch this just for d'awww.
But that shouldn't let you down,
Similar theme. Group of friends doing things together. A Slice of Life comedy anime with friendship, life lessons and new beginnings.

Both are great sol animes focusing on a small group of characters and using background characters as comic relief or even filler, both keep a slightly mature tone with each providing some more adult jokes as well as some fan service.
