JK Meshi is the only anime I've ever seen that's so unbelievably bad that they literally had to have an episode where they straight-up admitted to having the lowest TV-ratings of the season, the worst production value and just being plain uninteresting, solely in order to try and score some sympathy points from their audience. When an anime is so embarrassingly awful that the best the show can do is make fun of its own miserable self, that's when you know you've hit rock bottom. And rightfully so, because this is the absolute worst anime I've *ever* seen.

In short, JK Meshi is a short read more

Sometimes a show comes along that stands out for the wrong reasons, it could the content, art style or animation. JK Meshi! is a short series that suffers from one of these but can it overcome this to bring some entertainment to those watching or will it follow suit and crumble?

The premise here is simple and effective, three girls sit around discussing all sorts but mainly revising various topics for school. After they have finished revising or they get distracted they get hungry and Reina (mostly) cooks something up from the odds and ends of food she has around the kitchen. That’s it and for read more

I have very much enjoyed this series.

At the core, it's about a group of three friends who briefly discuss going-ons with life/school, followed by enjoying a meal they have prepared.

There's not a lot of story to be told. The episodes each are only around 3-minutes in length, so it is over quickly. Each episode can be watched standalone, without depending on information from previous episodes, which is nice.

The art is fairly basic, but I feel it is cleverly used to the show's benefit and humor.

The characters are well-voiced. They don't feel forced.
There's not a whole lot of room for character development, but over the read more

Alright, this really has to be one of the worst anime I have ever watched. I thought it would be somewhat easy to watch without wanting to face palm. I thought wrong.

Story; 1; The story is complete garbage. Randomness and stupidity. From what I saw in the cover picture, I was expecting an 'how to cook' anime not some gibberish and some disgusting looking foods.

Art; 1; Worst thing about this anime is the art. The art style is hideous and nothing is even eye popping in the least. Come one people, step up the the plate! It's a 2015-2016 anime we're talking about!

Sound; 1; Really read more
