Synopsis


The project anthropomorphizes rice (kome in Japanese) into schoolboys. At the Kokuritsu Inaho Academy ("Rice Ear Academy," a wordplay on national schools), five new rice-inspired students attempt to supplant bread as the popular grain at the school. The new students form the "Love Rice" unit and challenge themselves to perform at the "Harvest Show" to show the delicious appeal of rice grains. The "heartwarming 'kome'dy with laughs and passion" promises to let audiences rediscover the virtues of rice ("Japan's soul food").

Currently there is no legal streaming site that has this series and also I'm not sure if there was an anticipation thread for this series.


Pretty sure there wasn't an anticipation thread.

Considering how many odd little shows Crunchy does get, it surprises me when something like this isn't obtained by them. (Of course there's always the chance of a late pickup)

Episode 1

That was a pretty silly concept through and through with boys representing a food that's losing to bread and noodles. Hinohikari and company arrive at Inaho Academy, and it doesn't have much longer before it shuts down due to slipping sales. Those boys sure need to start cooking or else rice is finished.

It was pretty annoying, then they made food during the credits.

This show tells us the importance that rice is still the best breakfast grub than bread and noodles

That sums it up pretty well.

I might feel guilty if I don't eat any rice today. -- jk

And indeed that's just what happened.

Episode 2

Hinohikari sure is determined to make it to the festival, but nobody is on board with him. So he tries to scale the mountain himself, all while crossdressing for good measure. Pretty stupid how things turned out.

Another interesting rice dish in the credits, using one of those octopus ball griddles.

It's really too bad that none of the characters are really memorable, even though they're all distinct from each other.

Hinohikari cross-dressing to gather more rice grains in the mountains is hilarious

This helps the rice industry in what way? Did I miss that part?

Episode 3

And now, the rice boys are crossdressing. So Hinohikari and two other boys have formed an idol group called Love Rice for the festival. Gotta cook'em all, I guess.

Episode 4

It's a cold day, which is not really good for rice, and they come across one of the students apparently dating a little girl. Turns out that she's that guy's little sister, and he wants to be a comedian. So much for all that.

Honestly, I watched this show hoping for a 'StarMyu but with a ridiculous premise and more comedy' but didn't expect this to be well... this.

I wish they at least have proper dance numbers and singing like in other idol anime. I love the ED though... makes me hungry. I'd not drop this though since it's short and in a way is entertaining.

Is this supposed to teach fujoshi how to cook? I'd be more interested in a full four minutes on those recipes.
