The city of Tajimi is well-renowned for its Mino ware ceramics and being the hometown of Himeno Toyokawa's mother. Considered a legend in the world of pottery, Himeno's mother suddenly passed away when Himeno was four. However, her legacy lives on in the dozens of unique mugs that adorn the Toyokawas' new restaurant in Tajimi.

Having moved back to the city recently following the bankruptcy of her father's company in Tokyo, Himeno brings some of her mother's mugs to her first day of high school in an attempt to make friends. One person who immediately takes an interest is Mika Kukuri, an eccentric girl in Himeno's class who soon introduces her to Tooko Aoki, the president of the Pottery Club. After learning more about her mother's contributions to the club and the art form, Himeno asks her father for permission to join, which he gladly gives.

Alongside Mika and her childhood friend Naoko Naruse, Himeno enters the Pottery Club to continue her mother's beloved work and discover her own passion for the craft.

It could be yes for other people tho. When i watch this anime, there some sort of scene that kinda relate to my real life experience. When everyone around you is so talented on their own way like creativity or aesthetics, you just want someone special for you to notice about how you capable on and don't want to live behind someone shadows. And when someone react "normally" to what you make without any reaction, it kinda hurt a lot like so relate to my real life experience. kinda coincidence right ?

Also i never know there's a lot of cup type in japan. afterall, this ...

This is one of the short anime that I've watched for a very long time. And it's definitely worth my time... Probably lmao

I don't know what to say because while it had a coherent story and a nice pacing, I don't think it really accomplished anything in the end. Like, I sometimes think what's the point of this anime.
It just ended so abruptly.
But that's aside the point. How about the pottery and sh*t that it introduced? Well, it's introduced well and properly. It had some scenes that taught the audiences on how to do certain potteries. But because it is a short anime, it needed ...

Recommendation: It's short (half-length episodes) and inoffensive, so there are worse shows out there that you could watch, but this is one you can safely skip.

Story: Mug Cup has the bare-bones story setup that you'd expect from a cute slice of life show. The main character, Himeno, has moved to a new town famous for pottery, and joins the pottery club to learn more about her mother, a famous artist from that town that died when she was young. It's part hobbyist anime and part tourism ad for the city of Tajimi, but the tourism parts aren't so in your face that they're ...
