    Looking for a grain of truth
    Not finding much in this series of this rice eyed promotional anime, but it is mercifully short at 4 minutes. It might work for a comedy that goes down easy without any hard thinking, and there are rice based recipes at the end of each episode.

    The characters are the usual cliche, but I don't usually expect much from a short. After getting through the season it looks like their troop is ...

    A good solid meh .
    I started watching this, thinking the description sounded similar to "Yakitate!! Japan" , but in reverse. After four episodes, its more like a standard school anime with quite a few tropes thrown in along side it. That alone turned me off of it, not to mention there was none of the comedy style that made Yakitate so endearing.

    Painful to watch, If you hate someone please tell them to watch this anime c:
    This is by far the anime most painful to watch I've seen, and I thought vividred operation! was bad :'c, I don't know what did I expected from this, but I got dissapointed, the anime is painful to watch, the characters stop moving from several seconds, it's a 4 min episode, if your characters stoped moving for 15-30s tha's a really great part of the episode, the animation is disgusting, there´s ...

  • Rice school vs bread school - fight!
    Not very good production, a lot of food puns all over, a bit of information concerning rice varieties, and some nice recipe video at the end of each episode. Sometimes you just need a snack sized anime, like a riceball, to make you appriciate the better items on the menu.

  • Thought it looked cute and would be fun
    Whenever I see food anime, I get really excited. So I hoped that this one would be no different. I really thought that it had a chance with its cutesy type characters. However, it fell quickly to a 'meh' for me. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. I wouldn't recommend it, and I only finished it because that's the type of person I am.

  • It's so bad, it's good
    Cliche characters (with weird character design to boot!), plot that barrels along at a very fast, forced pace, awful puns that are lost in translation and a silly premise combine to make this so bad it's good. Any silliness in the show threads that fine line between 'serious plot done badly' and 'humour done badly', and the ambiguity makes this show enjoyable.

  • I love comedy and food so it's great
    It's a 4 minute anime so it doesn't have much depth to it, but it still makes for a pretty fun ride to see all these tropes working for the sake of RICE. If you come in expecting some huge idol wash away from things like Love Live, you'll... find it here in its most condensed form, but I don't think that's bad. In fact, a lot of it is played off great. The ending credits are always fun to watch as ...

    As a rice-lover myself, I must give 5/5
    The camera-shot quick cook-through at the end of each episode made me add one point to the show's actual score (it's just that feelsgood). Seems like fun times await, with focus characters having a singular distinct trait to contrast each other. Guess that's all the characterization you can fit into a short. Go, rice squad! Beat the yeast king! However, the rice faction is actually the low-key bad ...

    me too [just needed more characters for the limit]
    The concept is a little "out there," but I think that works to the show's advantage. The recipe at the end looks good too. It's the "ricing" on the cake or whatever. I don't know enough Japanese to even know the puns are there, but the concept was funny enough to keep me engaged.

    I plan on loving this show unconditionally and will not be updating this review, especially since no one else is ...
