I was so sure that the VA for tsumugi also did Naru from Barakamon, she isn't but she did play the other little girl in barakamon, Hina so that explains why she sounds familiar. ANYWAY this is great and will probably be my anime of the season

I love the realistic interactions between father and daughter! I also like the deliberate touches of realism: washing the rice before cooking, or Tsumugi struggling to keep coloring despite encroaching sleep. And the artwork complements the storyline--bright and warm. I admit, however, to being a little uneasy about Kokori's desire to come cook for sensei. . .I was crushed by the distasteful--pervy, even--turn Usagi Drop eventually took in the manga, and anything similar would absolutely ruin this show for me. . .

Such a wonderful show, how did they get the effect of someone chopping onions in the next room though.

I like this anime the theme will be more comfort food and not super extravagant dishes like Foodwars. Episode one starts with a simple yet basic ingredient homemade rice. I wasn't sure it was going to work but turned out great. I really like the VA for the little girl I am guessing she is a real kid?




Nakamura Yuichi looks really good in that picture. Very few Japanese guys try to go for a gruff style. I like it.

Everything starts out all cute and happy..... then we get to the picture of the deceased mother. NO! DON'T YOU DO IT! STOP! RIGHT NOW!

Tsumugi is adorable, but I have to wonder if she understands her mother has passed away? It was hard to tell from Kouhei's reaction if this was fully explained to her.

Kotori is pretty funny.... "MOM! HOW DO YOU MAKE RICE?"

I can already tell I will enjoy this, but back to my original point...... don't pull anything, show. I'm keeping my eyes on you.....

Sweetness And Lightning Episode 1

My current favourite Anime so far this season, I was expecting something light hearted and fun and what I got was an incredibly feel good, emotional and heart warming 20 minutes. The flash backs killed me ;-; and you can feel the chemistry between the father and daughter. The title should have been happiness and sadness coz that's exactly what I felt throughout. This genuinely put a smile on my face and looking at what I've watched and what I have left to watch, I dont see another anime invoking the same emotions this season. Also Bananya Cat has a rival for sheer cuteness this season. First episode is a straight 10 from me.

That was a cute episode, though I wasn't as moved as I hoped to be. Enjoyed the realism and interactions like others have said.
Can rice actually be that delicious? I've had rice all my life and it's simply plain to me .

Two things to note:
- Inuzuka seems to have told Tsumugi that her mother has gone away somewhere (on a trip perhaps), as Tsumugi mentioned "writing a letter to Mommy", so that might be an emotional tool used later
- Not sure on Kotori having virtually no distance between her and her sensei; she looks to be the shy type but she seems way too open for a highschool girl? It is early days though.

It was probably the sake she added. If they'd never had it with sake before it would give it more flavor than plain rice.

It's adorable fluff. Like cotton candy.

They could ruin this in two ways:
1) Go the Teacher/Student romance route.
2) Make it all about food.

If I had to choose between the two, then by all means make it about food.
