Yes I did. It was very pleasant. A nice thing to watch after work.
I don't remember. I watched this on the ass end of a "Who can watch the most anime in 72 hours" competition with my friend.
I lost by 10 episodes.
I vaguely recall it being about food though.
I liked it. It made me recall when my grandmother passed away two years ago.
Tsuyuko best girl.
I left it behin and didn't watch more episodes. I still don't know why they pushed this project given it was barely known. Instead, I really appreciate the series for introducing me to Kotringo because the OST is very nice.
I hate it when a character is explicitly high school aged or older but because they look younger than they are, they're treated as or act like a child. Purple was the only energy in the show and cute as fuck, but her role was being the child-like character that needed things explained to her so the audience can get an explanation, too. But because the things she was taught were nothing more than "this is how proper Japanese adults act," it came across as heavy-handed, condescending bullshit. She's supposed to be approx. the same age as the browns!
The other characters were uninteresting, and the food porn made me a little uncomfortable instead of hungry, mostly because it didn't seem to be so much about the food as pretty female mouths eating food and moaning about it.
I'm waiting for superior eating/food anime to get adapted
It was really boring. Even though watch alot of slice of life and moeblob shows and I spend literally half my waking hours cooking or studying about cooking this isn't interesting at all.
>thinks KG is about cooking
All the girls were good
Mekaku was far worse
Sasami was worse although it had plenty of good parts
>still thinks KG was about cooking
Yeah, K-On and GochiUsa were more your speed after all.
They were 14 and in junior high school actually. I get what you're saying but I was more annoyed by big tits living alone and being so mature and nurturing. She was too Mary Sue.
Anime makes me feel ashamed for being so immature at that age even though I realize writers do those characters because they're bad at writing children. Regardless of whether or not it's realistic, kids always live alone because the writer can't write parents either 100% of the time the trope occurs. They should all be more like Kirin.
If the story needs mature characters who live alone, authors should just make them be adults, but this is anime so we can't have that.
>the writing is bad because it portrayed characters that didn't fit my limited world view
This. It's definitely got more thought put into it than other OPs
So was the ED. Shaft can always deliver that at the very least.
Are you actually the infamous, the-one-and-only /a/?
>Did you like Koufuku Graffiti?
Immensely. It would be a bonus to have a cookbook come with the DVD set so I could make what they show in each episode.
Then I could sit down and eat it in depressing solitude.
Overall not the best, but I still think it's a bit underrated.
I loved it.
Three gorgeous girls, tasty food, comfy feeling, great soundtrack, partly really beautiful beackgrounds, nice humor, and the cutest previews I've ever seen.
The only negative thing was that weird shoujou-like style of the foodgasm scenes.
Are headtilts still a meme?
Not if Grandma does it
I cried near the end desu.
I want to marry Shiina, adopt Kirin, and hire Ryou as maid and cook.
Yes, it's Shaft's best anime in a while.
The soundtrack is great, almost Sora no Woto level, even more surprising that the composer hasn't done a lot work at all.
About the hate, I get that people just feel bored, SoL shows are just like that, you always have some you find boring, even if you are the biggest SoL fan ever.
I wonder how many were put off by the fact that Mari Okada wrote it.
It was really bad, it wasn't comfy it was just plain boring. The previews and OST were the only good thing about it.
/a/, generally speaking, loves all-girls slice of life but this one was dead after the first few episodes. That should be enough to tell you.
Everyone has to watch this related video
It looks much more appetizing in 3D. I also saw this same recipe in Hanasaku Iroha where it looked edible. Does anyone know what that brown sauce is? It looks like diarrhea but it can't be worse than ketchup.
/a/ loves almost every SHAFT work, even Nisekoi (the first season at least since S2 objectively sucked balls) so I don't know where'd you get that.
This, Mekaku and Salami are some of the few that get a measurable amount of hate.
Just watched first ep and it looks cute as fuck. Will cleanse my soul with right before sleep /10.
There are some Sasamifags that occasionally appear, but you're right.
It's kind of ironic. Sasami and Koufuku Graffiti are my favorites, but I don't particularly like Shaftshit.
I originally dropped it because the food thing creeped me out. Then I tried it again and realized it's actually extremely comfy and nice. I don't know another show that so cleanly achieved what it set out to do, honestly.
P I Z Z A
The food thing was an interesting addition, but I mostly enjoyed Ryou. Her monologues were great and learning about her and her loneliness was enjoyable in its own way.
>he doesn't have cheesy crusts in his country
What third-world shithole are you from?
I feel sad when anons complain about the art shift food scenes because that's where Shaft blows the budget on every episode. It's unique to the show and recognizable and, yes, it's weird, but I don't equate weird with bad.
Found the Hacka Doll episode on youtube so here's a link to the parody scene (4:24)
Thread already over?
I don't know, I could talk about how much I want to fuck Kirin but that gets old quickly.
It had potential, but just never really clicked. Not much in the way of humor, not much in the way of tugging at heart strings. Just kinda flat.
When I started watching it I was looking forward to seeing some recipes I might be able to try for myself. Stuff for inspiration. Then it ended up being bamboo shoots and popsicles and konbini junk and flowing somen and Japanese "pizza" and charcoal grilled fresh catch. My face when
This is true.
The food drawn by the manga artist looks great though.
I liked it a lot. I enjoyed the strange lewdness of the eating scenes -which eventually just circled back around to be comical by the end, and those aside, I found it to be a really nice SoL that managed to feel like it was actually moving forward between episodes while still being mellow.
Watching Ryou slowly get over her grandmother and get back to enjoying life was really heartwarming, the humour was great, and it was always relaxing to watch. I don't think there's a single episode I didn't enjoy.
This fucking character was gorgeous, goddamn.
There should be a law against hair that fluffy.
It was the usual kind of adaptation from Shaft and had some of my favorite seiyuu, so I enjoyed it.
