Wakako-Zake is a gem.There is just something so calm, peaceful, funny, and heart warming in this anime that I can't describe.The art is simple, but cute(some describe it as bad art, but they're idiots) .The VA particularly, is amazing.I also love the theme song.This is a no bs show, with a simple plot, but is just so soothing.It's something you would watch when you're depressed, and feel like doing nothing.

Overall, it's a fun anime to watch, leaving no regrets.

A 2 minute show deserves a 20 second review. 12 episodes, 12 restaurants, 12 dishes and their accompanying drinks in 24 minutes. If you're looking for a travel cooking show like Parts Unknown, you've found your anime. Although the restaurants aren't real the dishes are. If you live outside of Japan you'll probably be introduced to 12 dishes you've never had but now will want to try. Even if you live in Japan there will probably be a couple you haven't seen before.

What can I say, apparently my favorite of Summer 2015 is the two minutes per week of literally just watching a woman eats, drinks, commentates, and lets out what is probably the most contented sigh you’ve ever heard in the history of moving pictures.

You don’t need to be a big foodie or particularly invested in Japanese culinary to be able to appreciate this show. Wakako basically acts as a tour guide into her headspace, delivering simple and instantly relatable monologue revolving around “what I will eat today, and why”. Such is the nature of this one-woman show, the voice actress is probably read more

Wakako-zake knows what it is. It knows it's a short look into one woman's enjoyment of food, drink, and pairings.

There's not a lot to say about this anime. I actually did really enjoy it and looked forward to it each week. Each episode promised to be an insightful look into food culture done in a calming and reflective manner and it succeeded very well. No drama, relatable main character, and succinct writing made this a success. It also usually made me hungry.
