Synopsis

The project anthropomorphizes rice (kome in Japanese) into schoolboys. At the Kokuritsu Inaho Academy ("Rice Ear Academy," a wordplay on national schools), five new rice-inspired students attempt to supplant bread as the popular grain at the school. The new students form the "Love Rice" unit and challenge themselves to perform at the "Harvest Show" to show the delicious appeal of rice grains. The "heartwarming 'kome'dy with laughs and passion" promises to let audiences rediscover the virtues of rice ("Japan's soul food").

Do you love rice? Do you love boys? If yes, you'd better hand yourself in to the police. But before you do, you'd better watch Love Rice. It might make you reconsider your life choices.

Hinohikari is a boy who knows what he wants & what he wants is to be the HarveStar of the Harvest Show. There's just one problem: nobody likes rice any more, which is unfortunate enough when you're a rice-boy (not the car kind) but doubly so when it means the Kokuritsu Inaho Academy he attends is in danger of shutting down. Undeterred, Hinohikari will achieve his dream & save his school read more

Actual rating 5.5/10

This show was an interesting experince, in many ways upon the surface it would appear similar to a great cooking manga/anime like Tonkatsu DJ Agetarou, Shinya Shokudo or Shokugeki no souma, and in terms of actual product it was similar to all three but in the worst way, the linking of the shorter charachter studies in this show were enough to retain one's attention but not enough to be engaging so it is almost an inverse of Shinya Shokudou, it lacks the requisite goofiness and identity through visual presentation to be as funny as Tonkatsu Dj Agetarou and it lacks the amazing presentation read more

Preliminary
Love Kome is not a traditional comedy: it doesn't thrive on jokes, gags/skits, or character stereotypes like most comedy series; nor does it have a "dry" sense of humour like some others. For one, it has lots of puns; but its main way of being humorous is by being extraordinarily bizarre. The story is so absurd that you will rarely think anything else other than "how the hell did anyone come up with this?!". It is also not the slightest bit self-aware: every single thing, however crazy it may seem to the viewer, makes perfect sense in the characters' minds. Together, this makes Love Kome read more

Preliminary
This is a strange series, anthropomorphized rice essentially, but done creatively I think, the various foods do these shows that let people see them and create magick that puts on a show. Simple plot, but I liked the characters they were interesting and for a 4-5 minute show they packed alot of information into it.

Story simple you've seen it before, but I felt they handled it well.

Art Probably one of the stronger parts as their "shows" create interesting effects.

Sound nice music and handled well.

Characters a strong point, as everyone has a reason to be on the team or not, even the villain isn't read more
