Ep2

Decidedly a step down from episode 1... much more fan-servicey, and more blatant ero-eating, much less moe and CGDCT. I did like that the characters are developing though.

Anyhow, this weeks food links;

Tamagoyaki - a rolled, flavored omelette. (And a very clever solution to the problem of eating eggs with chopsticks.)

I've actually been meaning to try making these for a while... I even have a cheap tamagoyaki pan floating around in the pantry somewhere.

I may continue watching this series just to keep experiencing that song that plays during the next episode preview.

It has more slice of life content but it's okay so far. Nothing too ground breaking though.

I see. Hmm, I want to be open-minded and check this out more, but after watching the first episode, I wasn't feeling it. I'll keep looking out and see if it gets better. Thanks for the input, brotha'!

Another great episode! I really like this series - it's so calming!

However... I may be the only one who feels this way, but doesn't it seem like the "shaft-isms" kind of get in the way of this show? I don't know why, but they feel kind of out of place. With other shows, they fit well enough - but this show in particular feels like they are unnecessarily tagged in just to make it "shaft". I think it's because the art style is a little different than usual and more "normal" - yet they keep the shaftisms, which almost make them look jarring at parts. Then again, maybe that's just me.

On an unrelated note - I have to mention that preview theme! I don't know if I can handle that level of cuteness!

lewd indeed!

as for Shaft-isms getting in the way of the show... it doesn't really bother me. I mean if you put them altogether they won't even last a full minute. They're only a few seconds each at most and some of them flow naturally so I'm not really bothered by it.

Counted at least two backward over the shoulder Shaft looks this episode.
They just had to do it.

I love Shaft head tilts and Shaft fanservice so I have no problem with either in this show! Quite enjoying this, actually more than when I first heard the premise. On the buy list for sure this season.

I think this might be favorite of the new ones this season, altho the food porn scenes are a bit too much. I think it's the over-the-top CGI for those scenes. Normally it doesn't bother me (I liked Karen Senki), but it's just not working for me here. Oh, and the word you're looking for is sitophilia. But the Shaftiness helps offset that; e.g., scenery, and the aforementioned head tilts.

Yea, it's just so catchy! I don't even know if "tsukuru" is what they're actually saying lol - just guessing off of how it sounds. A google seach brought up something like "to make", so if it is a word, i'm guessing it might be referring to cooking or "making food". So maybe something like "♪ To eat~! To cook~! ♪ " or something? Just my guess - haven't studied a lick of Japanese in my life though lol

----------------------------------------------------------------

With regard to what I was saying about the shaftisms - they don't necessarily bother me, they just seem kind of odd considering how normal the rest of the show looks. I don't mind them though. Ironically, the head tilts weren't even the major offender for me. It was actually this scene:

Episode 2

The Shaftness was on full power during this episode. All the head tilts, odd poses and camera angles, and lewd scenes were all well done. I love how Shaft incorporates them in so naturally, I don't even question them.

They also fit really well in this laid back and uneventful environment.

And the scenes with Akira were just so....


Good stuff Shaft haha!

Also does anyone else notice the strange "blop" noise that Kirin makes every time she walks? It's hilarious!
