A scan of the upcoming issue of Monthly Comic Zenon magazine, to be released on March 25, revealed that manga Wakako-Zake will be adapted into a TV anime series. The manga also received a live-action TV drama adaptation last year.

Chie Shinkyu started Wakako-Zake in July 2011, and the seinen manga is still ongoing. It is serialized in Monthly Comic Zenon and published under Tokuma Shoten. The fourth volume of the manga ranked 41st in its first week on Oricon's weekly manga chart last December.

Synopsis
Murasaki Wakako, who is 26 years old, loves going out alone to enjoy eating and drinking, especially when something unpleasant happens at work. This manga follows Wakako through many solitary outings, where she enjoys different combinations of food and drink! (Source: MangaHelpers)

I remember reading the first chapter a while ago. The MC (main girl) is pretty odd though.

"In the past few months since we met, I've shared many memories with Nagato. Though I've also shared memories with Haruhi, Asahina-san and Koizumi, I found that I've experienced more events with Nagato in particular. In fact, every situation seems to involve her. I might as well mention this, she's probably the only person to cause the bell within me to shake the most vigorously..." ~ Kyon, TMOSH

Sounds interesting. Especially the part where the main character is an actual adult.

Also, Koufuku Graffitti got me into food anime (which I never cared for) as the second best show of winter season.

Sounds cute. I read the first manga not too long ago so I'm fine with this getting an adaptation.

I've seen raw of this available now (live-action drama, I think) on streaming site. It's just my wild guess, but I'm guessing (and hoping) it will be one of the short anime to be aired in Super Ultra Anime Time airing in Summer or beyond that.

The MC is an actual adult so I was very interested at first but the I noticed it will probably be a short series.

Seems to be a lot of crappy adaptions these days. Not been many good animes this year and last.

TOO many generic Light Novel adaptions too.

This is Koufuku Graffiti without the cooking and more for someone in their 30's since it stars a typical working woman.

More food exploration! And at 20min per episode, this one isn't really short, either... I'm a little unsure about trying it.

I checked out the sole translated chapter and I have to say, it's compellingly uneventful :D
"May those who accept their fate be granted happiness."

"May those who defy their fate be granted glory."
