THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Pretty calm episode. We got a variety of customers (pretty much the ones that visited in the past) all coming at once to this sacred restaurant.

I do find it interesting that the princesses came together at the same time.
Seems they still appreciate the service and food served there. Nice to see the Dragon girl again :D

A day with Aletta and a very hectic one at that with everyone arguing which food as best.
Well they did manage to taste some new things in the process even if Aletta was very tired in the end.

It's also funny how the Elf reacted trying something new while staying away from the argument.

Might be an unpopular opinion but i liked the Aletta segments the best this episode.

The first segment reminded subtly us that she had it really bad in the past just through a potato (the one thing she had to eat). That was very well done.

And the ending segment was just great, my smile intensified. With a different cooking method, this potato dish turned into her favourite <3 I bet, this will replace her bad memories a little.

The arguing customers were quite fun, especially at the end when everyone was just shouting what they wanted xD It felt like the creators wanted to get this interaction out of the way in one episode though, i hope we get more of this.

Got to see how Aletta gets ready before the first diner arrives. She had a long day serving everyone. It was quite hectic with all the arguing over what sandwich is the best. They got to try new foods. Aletta didn't realize how potatoes can taste so good. She also learned how to steam them. It's her favorite food now.

I like the fanservice at the beginning. And finally next episode will introduce that other "maid" girl.

Aletta really had her work cut out for her in this episode. It amazes me that the chef can keep up with all those orders by himself.

Also, Aletta's smile must be protected at all costs.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Man, I would have fallen under all of that pressure that Aletta had in this episode....Props to her for handling herself as well as she did

Even though this episode didn't play out like I thought it would have, I still hope that we have more episodes like this with the customers interacting with one another....Possibly even outside the restaurant too

How come they skipped the fight between dishes I wanted to see everyone come to an understanding and like each other dishes.

Well, arguments about the best dish was inevitable. They all look so good.

Aletta worked so hard. She managed to keep up with the orders and the chef delivered on every one of them. Both of them are impressive. For Aletta potatoes had become her favourite dish. You can clearly see the stark difference from her flashback. That smile needs to be protected. :)

Unpopular opinion, but this episode was pretty boring. The fight was so egocentric, nobody wanted to admit that there might be more tasty dishes than theirs. And there is no way Aletta is more tired than Tenshu who has to deliver in a rather faster fashion to not keep the people waiting. Aletta's job of getting the orders and then bringing the food is very easy in contrast. We also didn't meet any new client, sadly. Hopefully the new waiter steps up.

Well, this was a different episode and it was sort of calming but still enjoyable.

We got to see what Aletta's days are like and damn, that little demon girl is working her ass off.

The arguing scene sort of enhanced the friendly feel of the restaurant for me.

Yes,you can.



Pretty nice episode, seeing all the former customers discuss was amusing and the part where Aletta discovered the magic of potatoes was cute.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

Aletta had her work cut out for her this episode, and her narration of her work day was fun to hear.

For once it was nice to have some interactions amongst all the diners, even if it wasn't all friendly all the time. I find it more surprising that Tenshu manages to remember all those orders as he cooks more than Aletta being able to recite the orders to him all at once.

And a wild and naked Kuro appears next episode! Can't wait!
For once I'm glad it was mainly steamed potatoes today.

This was a good mid-season episode, showing the interaction between the customers we had seen in the restaurant.

I like how they decided to further characterize Aletta mid-season instead of being done with her at the start. Aletta finding her favorite dish is much more powerful like this.

Aletta sure works her backside off on a busy day. Not only does she have to deal with the bickering customers who're busy debating about why their dish is better than the others, but she also has to remember a wave of food, drink and dessert orders by memory. Not to forget that Tenshu has to cook all of this under that pressure and still fully satisfy the customers shows just how hard working both he and Aletta truly are. =)

The steamed potatoes looked simple and delicious that helped change Aletta's opinion about them completely. She also pulled off a beautiful smile at the end and like @thebrentinator24 mentioned, it must be protected at all costs. =D

The small fanservice of Aletta in the shower and also her underwear was unexpected, but at the same time, it didn't feel that out of place at all. Working at the Nekoya Restaurant probably gives her a chance to cleanse herself better than she's able to in her own world. Poor girl has it tough still. D=

A relaxing and happy episode this was overall. Looking forward to the girl characters for next week's episode now, including the unexpected nude women. =P

This is the one word for me to sum-up this episode = "Understaffed" ... lolz only if the customers are in a hurry.
arguing discussions really can't be avoided when it comes to personal food preferences!
more added elf characters next episode!
4/5.

This show doesn't give the score or respect it deserves, I feel it's great as it's some of the best food visuals since shokugeki no souma, while have some solid background story for all characters involved, who you see more than once instead of fading into oblivion after their segment. Deserves at least 8.25 in my opinion if not higher.

That was a nice episode.

Aletta certainly had her work cut out for her this time around. Props to her for actually remembering all those orders.

I liked her link with the potato and how it changed from being something that caused her pain to get favorite dish.

Them arguments over the best sandwich though. XD

I was hoping for an episode like this, but I'm not that happy about it. I wanted to see an episode with a few more then just 1 character showing up and ordering something. Still I wish we got to see their sandwiches and reactions.

Still good episode.

Brilliant episode. This time we get to see Aletta get her own favorite dish after everyone talked about there own. Showed the liveliness and chaotic situation on the restaurant. Good break from the frequent character introductions. Its hard to remember all their names but they all are notable in their background and appearance that I don't forget them.
Really love Aletta get more screen time.

I just find this so sweet, everyone there have this one day where they relax and enjoy themselves in carefree day-to-day.
And that ending song is always so beautiful which only makes this ever more sweet of a series. It is a simple formula, but I look forward to this every day, it is so well done. Nothing fancy is required for a good anime. It is a anime that you can relax and watch yet be good.
Look forward to every episode!

I've only just watched the previous episodes between last week and this and how impressively this is a reminder of all the things I love about this show is only matched by how it made me love the other episodes even more for the few things it lacked. The vignette style works so well for the show, constantly finding new perspectives on food and the things it can mean to someone, as this episode proved a perfect summation. I wouldn't count the argument scene as one of my favorites in the show so far but I love it nonetheless and I do for all the time we've spent learning these characters, learning why they love the foods they passionately (although, as is the show's wont, amiably) defend.-

Otherwise, it's as perfect an encapsulation of everything I adore about this show as anything else. It works to reward whatever level of engagement you want to bring to it, whether that be sort of cute worldbuilding and mental grappling details like Aletta abstractly describing things like elevators and cardboard, exploring the meaning that can be found in our relationship to food and all the things that food itself can mean to us, or just being a calming weekly respite from a more complicated world as the restaurant opens its doors again. The characters are so vivid, the music is so beautiful, and it's loaded with passion and care. I've only just started watching anime recently so I don't know if this is a unique beast among anime, but it's unquestionably an exceptional piece of media no matter the medium. I couldn't have asked for a better anime to be in my first season.
I don't know everything. I just know what I know.

So no more dumb random characters just them arguing over their average food. Wow, so interesting.

I had to speed it up, so fucking boring.

Enjoyable episode to watch. It was soothing and yummy as always too.
Although this episode didn't go as I thought it would, it was still quite good. Seeing all the regular costumers come and have a little argument over their best dishes always pleases a chef. Aletta had things rough this time around and did well to endure it all. Well, she got her reward in exquisite form anyways.
Looks like the new maid will finally be revealed next episode so it will be great to see how the trio will manage from now on.

So the show changes from one guest enjoying some random dish to all the guests arguing over what's the best dish when they've each only ever had the one dish at the restaurant. Seriously, is this all the show can get out of all these guests interacting?



Gotta agree with this guy on this.

I need them to speak human language instead of food language to understand them all xD

Right? Potatoes are like the best food!
They're like really savory when cooked right
Especially with butter
You can cook potatoes whatever you want like, they can become fillings, soup or even it's own dish (main course)
Croquette, mashed potatoes, Lyonnaise, potato cake/donut/sandwich/pancake/waffle, potato salad, nikujaga
Potatoes are perfect either it's for appetizer, main course, or even dessert xD

Curry and new main girl is coming!

This show is really dragging now.
We had 10 seconds of dragon lady this episode, and it was just her leaving the shop. Seriously.

Hopefully we get more of her next week. Looking forward to the new girl as well.

Sad that I didn't get to see the different sandwiches. On the other hand, this series is really good at describing dishes. It's like the author just wrote it to demonstrate his food critic potential.

I love Aletta. She's such a sweet and beautiful character.

I also find it amusing that all the characters introduced in the span of 5 episodes got together in the restaurant. This episode is heartwarming and had me drooling all over again.

Loved it. <3

A downside of this director's style, I heard; slightly static, forced dialogue, not unbearable because of the genre but downside still

The episode itself was pretty interesting.

Personally, when I saw the preview of this episode last week, I was expecting something more interesting than this... I mean, at least now I know that Aletta has some "one day jobs" in her world but nothing permanent... at least, I hope she has a good bed where to sleep intead of a haystack.

P.S.: I was also expecting for more screentime of the Dragon lady and all you gave me was a 20 seconds appearance??? I feel betrayed.

And as an addition, all the costumers wanted the chef to create a sandwich putting their favourite meals between two brad slices... pointless. As I said, I expected something more from this interactions. I don't know... maybe something like a talk between the "vegan full elf" and the "half elf" who eats flan (milk, eggs...) or whatever.

Non of them have the right to say which dish is best as all they eat is the very first dish that they were served. I do not know i feel like rather than introduce more new characther per dish they should give the current ones a new dish to try out.

I can't express how ecstatic I am right now after watching this wonderful episode~

I didn't had the chance to check it out right until now. I made sure this time to watch it late at night after dinner, in a calm and relaxing peaceful time of mine~

And wow, wasn't I really surprised this time around?!
*I wonder if our regulars at Nekoya ever converse with each other...*
I always wished I got to see that segment... But alas! Not only I got to see that sight, but also how they'd get so passionate about the food they love. To the extent of getting into heated arguments... and even making each other to try their favorite meal! All of those silly but heartwarming scenes brings me a great delight and put a big smile on my face like an idiot who doesn't know how to suppress it till the very end of the show~
Such a feeling of content I go through every episode of this anime :')

Many countless seasonal anime come and go, but to find such a good anime that has heartwarming atmosphere and the ability soothe your heart is such a bliss.
Well here goes my favorite choice for AoTS :)

Btw, we haven't seen that samurai and that old mage's story explicitly yet, right?
