    Finally a show for the grown-ups
    As a thirty-something, I start to feel a little uncomfortable about my love of anime as a medium, as so many shows continue to be about teenagers.

    Wakakozake is a refreshing departure from the norm, following a working adult as she deeply enjoys being a foodie. The ...bite-size episodes are refreshing and delightful to enjoy.

    Did I just find an anime about a female me?
    Brilliant job done for such a small time slot. It's simple, light and adorable. At two minutes per episode it is more than worth watching. At first the art style really threw me off and made me hesitant but it adds an adorable charm that completely fits the series.

    A great anime guide for those who enjoy traditional japanese night treats & booze
    Some folks say that if you don't know a country's nightlife you don't know that country at all.

    Wakakozake can work as an amazing "guide" for us westerns who know little to none about japanese true night life related with the japanese regular Joe who, as many of us, enjoys a nice drink with some comfort food after a tough day of work.

    Its not only getting a drink and some ...

    Ahh, what shall we drink tonight?
    Wakakozake is a super short, super relaxing new title hitting Crunchyroll this August. Apparently, the network thinks so highly of the new show, that right off the bat, the first seven episodes aired with moderate fanfare, and it's easy to see why.

    Murasaki Wakako is an oddly drawn 26 year old OL. (Office Lady) While other people around her are drawn in typical anime fashion, her head looks ...

    Serving Comfort Food!
    Who doesn't like to escape the workday with a quiet drink? Add a bit of food and you've got more than a late meal, you've got affirmation! Personally, I love nothing more than a cold beer and a burger basket at my favorite bar, but still frequently try new places. I just love food. So I'm in the same boat as Murasaki as she visits stall after stall, seeking to gratify her taste buds. A cute, ...

    I want to make and eat everything!
    For the 26 year old office lady in all of us, Wakako emphasizes with our plight and shows us her way to melt away your troubles. Commiserate as she describes what occupies her mind. Taste the sensations she's seeking with each bite and drink. And as she reaches dining bliss, you will feel a tug that will pull you to try this for yourself.

    DO IT.

    I love someone who appreciates food like I do!
    Down side: Was not at first expecting it to be short episodes
    Up side: each episode is pure excellence! The character is so likeable and she enjoys food so purely it makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. Anytime I watched it, I need to snack too. Easy to watch all the eps in one sitting and it's just generally a feel good food show. 10/10 recommend if you need a little light filler in between other ...

    Unreasonably Charming
    At only two minutes long, this anime is completely charming and adorable. It features different kinds of Japanese food and alcohol that I never knew about before. We don't know much of the main character, but she reflects on what she eats and drinks and makes you feel like you're a close friend of hers. The voice actress has a really cute voice, too!

    If you're in the mood for something that's ...

    Fun snippets & so me
    The animation is only 2 mins each and go through a Japanese post-work drink & snack combo. It's essentially what I love to do whenever I can after work! The laid back characterization and depiction of work events are pretty classic and easily relate-able.

    Edit: for those who haven't already - check out the live action. It's 2 seasons worth of introduction to Tokyo eats!!!

    Simple, Relaxing, and Unique
    This short anime gives us a look into the life of Murasaki Wakako, who enjoys going out to restaurants after work to sample different food and drink combinations. Each episode is packed with the events of Wakako's day, her solitary inner monologues, as well as her feelings about the featured dish. Wakako is a true foodie and spares no detail in describing how each piece of the dish adds to the ...
