  • Best Comedy, Hands Down
    When I first saw this show streaming on a random media player service 14 years ago, I said "If I start watching a show about bread, I've lost all respect for myself." Since then I've watched the through the series several times and some clips dozens, and dozens of times. This is easily my favorite comedy series and definitely top 3 animes. I haven't watched it on Crunchyroll so I can't speak ...

  • Best Wholesome Anime
    Lots of comedy. Main character is reliable and hilarious and not annoying in the slightest. The anime teaches you a lot about cool facts and how to make bread. This anime is outrageously far-fetched with it's reactions and characters but it knows that and runs with it really well.

  • Shokugeki No JA-Pan!
    A modest show with amazing cast of characters who genuinely love doing what they do. I genuinely wanted to bake some bread after the end of this show and that should speak for itself. The story progression is pretty repetitive and expected if you're looking for more of a plot ride, this is probably not it. However, if you're looking for great characters and even more laughs this is it. Manga Is ...

    GREAT ANIME - for the lovers of silly, fun humor and food
    It is really gut busting funny, clever, likable characters with competitive spirit, and heart warming moments about the wonders of baking bread!!! As a viewer you will even be educated on baking bread and culture. I was confused and intrigued about an anime about bread...but I was in for a pleasant surprise! If you like food and silliness you should check this out.

    Possibly the greatest Anime of all time.
    From tropes and humor, to format and style- Yakitate!! Japan is the perfect example of good anime. Not only does it contain all tenants of good storytelling, it also thrives on modern Japanese culture and imagination.

    A lighthearted, wonderful adventure for anyone.

    What the heck happened?
    This starts off as fun and light and interesting, but it quickly became annoying, repetitive, and just painfully stupid. I usually like when anime gets me out of the box and shows me a new way to enjoy a story, but this one went so far into left field that it would have been better off sticking with a regular story line. That said, I love the characters and the humor is good, but there's no real ...

    Awesome anime, love it even today!
    This is one of those animes where I can watch it over and over again and it will never get boring! I love the characters, the humor, and the types of bread! It's a fun, creative anime that is good throughout its whole series. To me there are no bad episodes, only episodes that are good, great, or awesome! I really recommend this anime to anybody who might want to watch it!

    Love Food Wars? Then you must watch this too.
    Relatively spoiler-free review!

    This anime is everything that Food Wars is and a little more, even though it clearly predated that series by more than a few years. In fact, you could say that this is the 'full calorie' version of Food Wars because everything is bigger here, more outrageous visuals, more outrageous characters, more outrageous food science. It's everything you've come to expect ...

    Amazing anime about food!
    For all the people that haven´t watched it yet, this is a good oportunity to do it! If you like Shokugeki no Soma, i really recommend it! You need to see it for yourselves, but i can give you a headup, the best things in this anime are the sense of humor based on the parody and the references about anime series like Naruto and even hollywood movies like Lord of the Rings!

    Cooking Anime Need No Other Help
    This is a great series about baking and a bit later about cooking in general that focuses on friendship and the goodhearted nature and personalities of the characters while at the same time providing great and interesting educational insight into baking methods and food. This series is great and doesn't need sexualized food reactions and fan service to make it good. It's like a wonderfully-baked ...
