The path to becoming a fine wife begins with being an accomplished cook—at least, that is what Ryou Machiko's late grandmother had led her to believe. For a middle schooler, Ryou's cooking skills are incomparable; but recently, though Ryou's food looks appetizing and smells inviting, the taste has not been delicious. Just when the dejected art student comes to terms with the possibility that she might continue living alone for the rest of her life, her aunt tells her that Kirin Morino—Ryou's second cousin—will begin staying with her every weekend since the younger girl has joined a cram school in Tokyo and aims to attend the same school as Ryou.

Surprisingly, with her cousin's arrival, Ryou finds that her cooking has vastly improved—apparently, it is not her prowess in the kitchen, but the sharing of the experience with those closest to her that seems to make the flavors shine.

The story was nothing groundbreaking, just regular ol' slice-of-life. There are some interesting bits like Ryo's and her grandma but overall it's just regular slice-of-life. Nothing much I can talk about it. The animation was quite terrific, but I must say I hate the close-up when they're eating. There are also a huge amount of random face zoom-ins in this anime which I have no idea why. Overall, the animation was incredibly smooth as expected of Shaft. Albeit with a few inconsistencies here and there. I hate the SFX when they are eating, I don't know why but I hate them. I also wholeheartedly hate ...

Mixed Feelings
In the Masque of the Red Death by Poe, the chambers of the fortress make an erotic journey by which the antagonist-flow penetrates, slipping through like water pours through cracks in stone, following the channels and pathways set for it by what it invades. This anime does the same thing, using the social-cultural facts of food in order to be the linguistic-chambers of flow for the erotic flows of sexuality and romance which are shared by the two main characters. The food is obviously a metaphor for sex, pornographic shots of consumption and orgasmic expressions resulting. What's interesting isn't so much the fact of food ...

This show is a struggle to get through and largely forgettable for multiple reasons. The art style and music are nothing special, though they aren't bad. The story is also thoroughly uneventful and amusing. The main characters just sit around and eat food, and then react in a disturbingly sexual fashion to it. At first this appeared to me as just how this show felt the need to portray how good the food was; that everyone in this show's universe would go into throws of passion with every bite. Then at one point, the mother of one of the characters makes a comment about how ...
