Three high school girls have mastered the art of cooking simple, B-class dishes called JK meshi. The three girls — Reina, Ryouka, and Ruriko — are all classmates in their second year of high school. They often get distracted when studying for tests, and when they do, they cook JK meshi.
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 series you do get a clear sense of each character's "quirks". Especially from Ruriko, who is definitely not "normal".
Practically all of the comedy of the show comes from discussion of Ruriko's misunderstanding of common aspects of life.
At the end of each episode, one of the characters prepares a meal for the group, which typically involves looking at common food/ingredients, and showing them in a new light, or with a unique spin.
Despite the lack of story, and basic art, the overall enjoyment factor of the show is very high, and all the parts come together in a cohesive and enjoyable package. Episodes are short, yet still give a sense of satisfaction after each episode.
The meals presented are interesting, and leaves me wanting to try the new ideas for myself.
I find this show extremely refreshing. Nice change of pace in between other high-action, story-dense shows that are out there. I encourage people to watch an episode or two before being turned away based on other reviews. Thank you very much! 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 don't like the sound.
Character; 1; Bland as can be. Boring as can be. What even is the purpose of the characters if they don't even cook that long in an episode and just talk about school grades and such? Nothing is interesting about the characters.
Enjoyment and Overall; 1; Terrible and I really don't recommend watching this anime at all. Please stay away from it. You will thank me.read more
To be honest i don't think there could be anyone who actually like this, it doesn't have story, a elementary school kid can make a better animation on a Nintendo DSi, the characters don't have any bparticular charisma, they are just three normal (and maybe very normal) girls how are losing hers time with friends (and I would rather lose time with friends myselft than watching this) and it doesn't bring anything interesting or at least any useful knowledge. The only reason I can imagin for someone to watch this thing to the end is just to add an anime to his or her list (Just like me)read more

Story-Nothing,just 3 three girls who cook and jokes.
Art-It's so pathetic,i miss the old ones with that special and nice graphic..

Enjoyment-i did not enjoy this even an episode.
