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.

I'm not a fan of long reviews so I'm going to keep this short and to the point...

If you are bored and have nothing better to do in life while wanting to have some wholesomeness then sure go for it and watch it.

Its just mugs and bowls, made by cute girls.

The art is pretty basic. With the 'look at me I'm the protagonists' character designs.

The story is mugs. We have no mugs, then we make mugs. That's how we have mugs. They have colourful mugs, they have unique mugs, and they also have normal mugs! They avoid ugly mugs! Ugly mugs are bad. Nice mugs ...

Ah, Japan! What to think about its cultural beauties? This time pottery is the main theme of another honest and simple show, but one that deserves attention and care

Himeno is the character that plays the key role in the construction and the sample of the show. The protagonist has an interesting past with ceramics. In fact, her mother is the cause of this. She was an excellent artist in this profession, which requires concentration, creativity, and especially innovation. Himeno doesn't remember much of the past she had with her mother, not even with the ceramics she made. In fact, Himeno had a greater appreciation for ...

Despite being born in a country where it's recognized as a long-established profession (although neglected now, unfortunately), pottery never really caught my interest. However, after watching Yakunara Mug Cup mo, I might have become a little eager to learn about it.

The story mainly focuses on high school student Himeno Toyokawa, who moved to Tajimi after her father's company went bankrupt. On the first day of her new school, a boisterous girl named Mika Kukuri invites her to visit ...
