Yuri, food, cute art and light-hearted happy vibes are what both Koizumi-san and Maiko-san Chi deliver. If you like one you'll definitely like the other. The yuri in Koizumi-san is more pronounced and obvious, whereas the yuri in Maiko-san is just undertones in Kiyo and Momohana's friendship. The food in Koizumi-san is obviously ramen, whereas the food in Maiko-san is a variety of different dishes - some of which you may not have heard of! Both are worth a watch for their happy uplifting feel, cute art and interesting info about Japanese food!

Both slice of life shows offer you with traditional Japanese foods. You get to see the female leads enjoy their meals and they also share some details about their "dish of the day". Wakako-zake has shorter episodes than Maiko-san Chi no Makanai-san. It's best to watch these shows while you're eating; that's what I did.

Both food related, both have heartwarming food preparations and both have the same slow pace of the everyday life of people. The difference is that the one who is cooking is a girl named Kiyo in a traditional maiko house whereas in the other we have a guy who owns a small dinning store in China.

Mitsuwano and Maiko-san chi no makanai-san are anime about girls who live in okiya (maiko/geisha home) and are training to become maiko (geisha apprentice). The series give an insight into maiko/geisha world and what it is like to be a part of it. Friendship is also a huge part of both series.

Both showcase a variety of Japanese food within each episode, using a mix of animation in story and real life footage of culinary examples. The main plot differs but will always relate back to Japanese food and a main difference as well, which Maiko-san Chi hasn't got, is that Isekai Izakaya also has bonus features at the end of an episode where you can learn how to make the food item or get taken on a tour to a certain food place within Japan, both related to the food of interest in the episode. Isekai Izakaya is lively in atmosphere whereas Maiko-san Chi is a lot more  read more
