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 have been rather unacquainted with pottery throughout my entire life. 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.

Yakunara Mug Cup mo takes place in Tajimi, a city which is known for its pottery. 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
