I'm bored. Gonna give it one more episode to grow on me (because I don't actually hate it), but I'm not optimistic.

This latest episode did make me wonder once again (since it comes up a fair amount in anime), if it's actually typical in Japan for those who aren't of legal drinking age to be so very law-abiding, or if it's just some kind of decency thing in anime where they aren't allowed to show minors drinking.

So nobody thought of asking the girl who looks like a middle school kid for her ID before serving her alcohol?

Episode 2: So This is an Adult Drinking Party...

Awww Aoba is so innocent. It's still kind of hard to believe that half the cast is 18+ or rather all of the cast. I don't mind the moe designs though its just my heart can't take the cuteness.

Ahhh being a lightweight. I am a lightweight. It's fun being a lightweight though, you get to have fun before anyone else and then you don't even have to waste energy getting home since people will take you there

But this show is a little underwhelming to be honest. It's cute and I like that, but it just seems too basic. I'm still enjoying for the most part though.

Looking forward to the next one.

Good point. I'm so used to seeing anime characters that look young, that I forgot that that character looking extra young was one of the show's gags. It is weird that they didn't take the chance to use that gag in the alcohol-party scene.

This episode actually made me curious as to what the drinking age in japan was, and when I went and googled it I found that the drinking/smoking age (20 btw) isn't really seen as a big deal in Japan and it's for the most part ignored. Granted trusting the internet seems like a roll of the dice most of the time.

Episode 2

Nice episode we get to see her get use to working with her senpai's and even eat snacks. They have a Welcoming party for her and go out drinking but to bad she's not of legal age to drink. One thing weird is how they didn't ask for Id when she ordered a drink for her senpai. Other then that another good episode next week looks good.

Mozuku is one fat kitty and Sojiro doesn't look to impressed in that one photo ^__^ .

I think Hifumi is my favourite so far. The shy and bashful aspect of her character makes me smile.

I once read that shops and vending machines will sell alcohol to minors in Japan, and that it's not uncommon for kids to purchase alcohol for their parents. For reference, there is an underage character in the Tokyo Ravens anime who purchases alcohol for himself from a vending machine, and there is a side story in the light novels where all the central characters (a bunch of high school students) have a wild party and get completely drunk.

Episodes 1 & 2

With two episodes down, I really.... like really enjoy this. I had a lot of personal hype going into it and well... it delivered. Quite well in my opinion. Aoba Suzukaze is pretty cool to watch as she goes about things at work. Seeing the look on her face and some of the stuff she did when she started was pretty fun imo. While the show claims she just graduated out of high school. The aesthetics do seem to make her look extremely young. However, I do think it is quite fitting for the show and the tone of it in general. She isn't the only one that is pretty good though. I find that every character is outstanding in their own way and the character chemistry from all of them combined is pretty damn fun to watch. Esp in episode 2 with the drinking party. The conversations mixed with facial expressions/etc going on were pretty hilarious. The lightweight was out. Like done. Then, the epic Kou Yagami.... oh man, she is great. I think she will be a good mentor... maybe LOL! Other than that, there is definitely some beautiful color usage going on.

Overall, definitely one of my favorite shows of the season.

Yeah, and let's not forget that they were already drinking so even if it were an issue the waitress would already know who was legal and who wasn't.

Caught up. Episode 2. ... Well, looks like the show's not going to be exactly subtle about teasing Aoba / Hifumi. But I'm having fun, on the whole. Feels like a less saccharine Is the Order a Rabbit?

This is a nice and relaxed anime. Nice change of pace since most of my other shows are fairly violent.

This is never going to be a "Wow! What an awesome anime" type story and that's just fine by me.
