I'm seeking a certain sort of anime--the slow-paced nature appreciation. Here
is an extreme example.

When I was 11 I saw Miyazaki's My Neighbor Totoro. I couldn't believe that a filmmaker would spend so long looking at rain dripping from pine needles. What other anime films and TV have these elements, "slow pace" and "details of the natural world"? There can be plot beyond this, and violence, but those are the two requirements.
What I've found includes much of the rest of Miyazaki, especially The Secret World of Arrietty, and Only Yesterday, Mushi-Shi and Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit. What else might there be?
