I really don't know where to begin with this anime. To begin with there are several quite noticeable problems arising within the first few minutes of watching this anime. I will try and keep calm and give my review of this anime to spare anyone of wasting they're precious time that they could spend watching paint dry. First of all no one likes food critics to begin with and somehow the producers actually had the courage to produce this? I applaud them for they're bravery if nothing else. Second of all the food looked like something an inexperienced cook at taco bell made, and that's
saying something. There are several food based animes which did really well but unfortunately this doesn't even come close. The plot line was weak as i often found myself drifting off half way through an episode, the characters did not admit any kind of likable aura or give off a persona of someone that is even slightly interesting. It found itself left wanting in several departments. Nevertheless it could of slightly redeemed itself with decent artwork but no, to no ones surprise that was quite frankly poor as well. So if you're gonna take anything away from this then please listen now, DO NOT WATCH THIS! save yourselves the pain, its too late for me so go on without me!!
