I tried this recipe.... personally I think this would be improved by subbing champagne for the white wine. Gives it a bit more crisp taste and feel. Or perhaps an extra sparkling white might work

Wouldn't that be too bubbly?

depends on your tastes. I found the wine seemed to take alot of the carbonation out of the soda water. It was still bubbly but less so then you would expect. But again thats just my own personal taste.

Wakako is better in all ways, yes. Animated and live action.

Episode 5

Chisato is hard at work as she has to put in all-nighters to get a presentation done, and that means she can't be drinking. But Sora has a special mocktail for her using bananas, and seeing that she's too tired from work that she doesn't go bananas. Nice to see some changing up here as Chisato already looks cute enough in her sleep that she doesn't need to go in a trance again.

I also agree that Wakakozake is much better. This feels like One Room with food. Something about it is just very wrong.

I personally don't really get the "X is better" comparison when they are still doing different things.

Wakakozake, the girl goes out and experiences life while drinking. In Love is like a Cocktail the girl comes home to her adult relationship and has some tender moments with her husband.

Also how is this show odd or wrong?

It's just a cute little short with cocktail drinks, recipes, and a cute relationship between spouses. If anything it's more like I can't Understand What my Husband is Saying.

Sometime I think people just try and look for things, typically negative, that just aren't there instead of just enjoying a show for what it is.

Both are shorts about a cute girl enjoying food. It's true that they do different things with that, but they both do that. As long as we don't conclude things the show really gives us no warrant for, we can see what we want in it. Indeed, each of us sees something different based on our prior experiences. As humans like order, we tend to compare things and put them in categories. What a show "is" is far more complicated than you're implying.

Anyway, I feel like the show is too fake. Chi's reactions are exaggerated, and the guy is stiff. The thing with the curry wasn't believable, and not just because the guy didn't seem to have enough time to cook it. I didn't need to watch with an overly critical eye to be bothered by that. Now, this week's episode wasn't so bad - something happening helped. But that it's trying to do unreasonable things to please the viewer is too apparent. In this way it reminds me of One Room - except with most of its sanity still intact.

And I think you're looking too deep into it and being too critical in this case. But, whatever floats your boat. If that's how you enjoy your anime, then I can't knock you for that. I am much more simple and just live in the now for the most part when I watch anime.

I'll personally keep enjoying this show in the meantime. If you're not then there isn't much point to this conversation or continuing to watch it is there?
