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.

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.

Mixed Feelings
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.
