    Meals Bringing People Together
    More slice-of-life comfort food, literally. Now, I really don't know where this story is going, but I love the interaction between father and daughter (Kohei and Tsumugi Inuzuka)! The love, the shared domestic moments, the game-play chores--all of these are true to time spent with your small children. (And are especially precious to Kohei, whose wife died just months prior.) Tsumugi, ...

    Part cooking show, part real life drama, all feels.
    This anime and manga just does everything right for its particular brand of entertainment. If you're a foodie, all of the cooking tips that are in the show and manga are legitimate. The episodes all follow the preparation of at least one actual dish and convey a palpable love of cooking on a different level than most 'comical reaction shot' food-themed animes. I've tried one of the recipes at the ...

    My heart can't take it
    I saw a cute picture and decided to give the first episode a try. I absolutely cannot describe how... absolutely sweet this anime is.

    Every character that has been given more then one line of dialogue has been charming. The main two are so sweet. Even what I'm guessing is high school gym teacher friend was nice from his few lines of dialogue. Its a rare anime that makes me tear up when the ...

    My heart melted watching this
    I don't really watch any "slice of life" types of anime. I primarily watch anime like one piece, brave 10, and other kinds of action anime. This is honestly my first "non-action" type of anime and I love it already. Just the first episode was needed to make my heart melt, it was too sweet. The relationship between the father and daughter was so cute. I have not read the manga for this so I am ...

    I am a grown man Damnit! But....
    I love this Anime.

    It was one of the later arrivals in my viewing this season, but the moment I picked it up I haven't stopped watching it.
    The 25 minute episodes just fly by, they are so endearing and charming and adorable and I love watching how this show develops.
    A simple show about a Man trying to feed his daughter well, with the help of a student lacking confidence and a couple other ...

    I wish I had a daughter
    So that I could have someone inside my house that could fit their hand inside a Pringles Can.

    However on a serious note, this anime truly makes me wish that I had a daughter as cute as this little angel. The story is nice and light but it shows a very interesting view on the closeness of a father and daughter and how cooking starts to strengthen their bond as a family. Beautiful story thus ...

    Sweet and simply adorable
    Tsumugi steals the show! This story of a newly single dad and his daughter is adorable and easy to follow. I love how they bring real world issues of being a single parent (and it being a dad!) into the story and focus so much on Tsumugi. The part of the story with Kotori makes me laugh. She's a cute high schooler and I am enjoying seeing how her relationship with father and daughter grow. Looking ...

    Cuteness Overload!!! <3
    Been reading the manga here on Crunchyroll and fell in love with it right away, imagine my excitement when I found out they were making an anime
    Just watched the first episode and my gosh it is lovely <3
    The va's are absolutely perfect and fresh from what I seem to always hear (especially for little girls) and fit so well with the characters.
    Nominating this dad for best anime dad :3 ...

    Light, fluffy, enjoyable, yet sadly undercooked
    I suspect Sweetness and Lighting is not going to be well remembered a few years out from now. That's not necessarily a mark against the show, it's merely my opinion about the show's impact. The show plenty enjoyable and I don't regret watching it, but as sweet as the show is it didn't strike like lightning.

    Sweetness and lightning stars a Inuzuka Kouhei, an assistant high school teacher and ...

    will i give the 10/10
    its seems like it. everything i want in a slice of life anime....im a fan of cooking anime's too(which idk any other than this and FW)...just not a fan of food wars.

    the drama is SUBTLE, but you can feel how powerful it is in its subtlety. i dont see the HS girl as having a crush on her teacher, it seems more along the lines as him being a father figure and tsumugi as a sister, she doesn't ...
