Synopsis

The main protagonist of Koufuku Graffiti is a girl named Ryou Machiko who lives alone while attending art school. Ryou absolutely loves to cook (she learned how to from her grandmother who wanted her to grow up to be a fine wife) but lately, all of her dishes have been tasting horrible to her. One day, she gets a sudden call from her aunt who tells her that her second cousin Kirin will be staying with her on the weekends because she wants to attend the same art school as her.

Soon after Kirin arrives, Ryou learns a valuable lesson and completely changes her perspective on cooking which is that good meals are meant to be eaten with loved ones and that's what makes them taste great. Over the course of the series, Ryou cooks a variety of dishes for her cousin, friends, neighbors and anyone else who drops by her apartment! This is not a series that you'll want to watch on an empty stomach!

Thank you Shaft for sharting out this forgettable pile of "meh".

You know you've hit rock bottom when the only highlight from a show is girls eating food. This review will be fairly short, not because I don't want to write more about the title, but because the show lacks any kind of content to warrant any form of discussion or analysis.

It should go without saying that the "cute girls doing cute things" trend has become something of its own entity in the past decade. Due to the overwhelming success of titles like K-On, Hidamari Sketch, Lucky☆Star, Azumanga Daioh and much more, this trend has read more

Well, Koufuku Graffiti is one of those anime with Cute girls doing cute things under the "moe" genre, one of those refreshing anime where you can sit back relax and enjoy. Koufuku Graffiti is your Slice of Life Anime about food, nothing too out of the ordinary, but you will either really enjoy it or think watching it will be a chore. Just watch the first episode whatever you experienced that how it will be throughout the rest of the anime. The quality of the backgrounds and food are gorgeous and the way the trio bound is very heartwarming its what really brings the anime read more

Coming from the producers of "Hidamari Sketch" and "Puella Magi Madoka Magic" is the new food anime of the season, Koufuku Graffiti is an outstanding anime about a girl named Ryou who finds her passion in cooking and cuisine through her daily life and her friends! With dishes introduced every episode, this is a slice of life (Pun intended) anime that is favourably sweet!

Story - 7/10

Like most other SoL/Comedy, it has no set plot/storyline, but rather the occurrences of the daily life of a character in the anime. However, the events that happen are still worthwhile and fun to watch as we follow Ryou and read more

Well, I like to see the anime tags to make a review/critic. Koufuku Graffiti (who difficult and kawaii name, don't you think ?) has the following tags: "Comedy, Slice of Life and Seinen".
Right away, I see one problem. Where is the "Food" in the tags ?
Every anime have one thing that is the base of the history, character development, the base of the conflicts and the light of the solutions. On Kokufu this "thing" is the food. Yeah, you will see a anime talking about a life of a student, but on this life the food will create the friendship, will reveal memories and the read more
