    Fun but Not Presented Well
    I really enjoy the manga and this seems like a solid beat for beat remake. But it's hard to feel like you're relaxing in an izakaya when there's text constantly crowding out the screen. Do we really need a banner at the top telling us which episode it is? How about giant bubble text at the bottom to emphasize what the characters are saying? It probably looked fine in the original Japanese airing ...

    relaxing and enjoyable
    This animated series was made from a novel that I quite enjoy to be relaxing and fun to read while seeing food that is made and served in this series! It's enjoyable and it would be fun to watch and enjoy if you are looking for something to relax with!

    Great Story, Terrible Production
    I am actively reading the novel and manga, and I can say, this anime adaptation is a disappointment; for two reasons.

    One, the pointless banner at the top throughout the episode. I don't ever recall seeing other shows using such a bad idea. It flat out breaks immersion, which would be one of this shows selling points.

    Two, on the topic of immersion, while the cooking segment at the end is ...

    Eisode 3-4 have improved
    The first 2 episodes had a banner and lots of speech bubble things all over the place consistently making the viewer feel kind of removed from the anime which was in my opinion really annoying. However they seem to have removed this for episode 3 and 4 which allows the viewer feel more connected to the show and doesn't distract them from the story. I am really happy with the improvement as it ...

    Restaurant to Another World + Wakakozake = This Anime
    I'm two episodes in, and so far this show feels as if it was the child of Restaurant to Another World and Wakakozake (both of which I recommend to people who enjoy this series).

    There's something about watching a show about delicious food, and watching people discover it and enjoy it that is strangely relaxing and satisfying.

    Another foodie anime for the win!
    Oh I can't believe this is out! *squees internally so as not to scare co-workers* Oh but I loved the manga and from what I've seen, this will be a firm favourite as well! Oooh not to be watched while hungry!
    Look I am weak, I love food related anime, from Graffiti girl to Ramen Daisuki, if it features food, it already has my attention! So this would probably get 3 stars right off the bat. Ah I do ...

    a food show that's actually informative!
    I usually never write reviews because I tend to agree with the overall ratings on here, but I was shocked to see such a low rating for this show. I wouldn't say that it's the best show ever made out there, but it certainly doesn't deserve a low rating! As someone who loves working with food as well as wants to know more about all the japanese food showcased in anime series, this is the series that ...

  • Need to watch if you go sightseeing in japan
    There's a lot to learn at the end of this anime for the curious epicurian. Lot's of new food that i didn't learn that exist and the show itself with all of the character is really fun to watch. Again i recommend it for everyone because i love how they bring the fun time and the comical drama too.

  • Simple, Short, and Fun.
    Although the the banners and text walls were a bit annoying, the overall feel or this anime really brought it together. The simple stories and characters make for a fun and relaxing watch. I fully recommend for anyone who needs a break from the crazy plots and animations the classic anime usually portray.

  • Great show for tourism!
    Very enjoyable and relaxing anime Recently I've been enjoying food animes because they give me inspiration for cooking new things at home. This show is great because it introduces simple dishes and then shows you how to cook them at the end! I noticed that Travel Japan is at the end, so I definitely think this show is made for getting foreigners to learn the names of dishes so when they travel ...
