Why is Kuro suddenly talking like a normal person this episode?

Nice, comfy show. 8/10 At least it wasn't the most overhyped show this season.

Nice end to the series. I found it quite hilarious that they obviously ran out of budget for the final episode.

Might be because Master and Alleta often get startled when Kuro's dragon talking them.

Going to miss this show, I enjoyed the world building they on the side and the ties between the various characters.

Ok but why does he need to avoid his great grand-daughter that's what I don't understand

At the start of the show the narrator explains that Alexander went on to become a wandering mercenary instead of settling down to raise his son after helping defeat the demon lord, so it's likely Wilhelm was raised by his mother's family and either never learned who his father was or had to renounce him due to political reasons (while famous, Alexander doesn't seem to be a noble, so the imperial family might have claimed Wilhelm's father was a noble who died during the demon lord's attack rather than admit he was sired by a commoner). The fact that his great-granddaughter didn't recognize him suggests he didn't interact with the imperial family much, if at all.

Artorius probably didn't want Alexander to meet his great-granddaughter, whose life he never got to be a part of and is named after the wife he still carries baggage over (70 years later an he's still crying over her grave), because it would have just caused a lot of heartache when the goal is to eat good food and celebrate good news (like dropping the bomb that their old friend Yomi is not only alive, but living happily in a peaceful world).

The show is good, but the repetitive eating scene made me somehow bored. I wished it would be like Shinya Shoukudou ("late night canteen" by direct translation, jap drama IRL)
The story of the elf hero confused me, maybe because i forgot a lot of stuff going on, but I felt forced drama.
The ending song always touched me for no obvious reason, and it would be the most memorable element of this show for me

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I can't believe it's finished now.

Finally, Kuro is speaking using her mouth, but only to Aletta and Tenshu-san, and she's so cuuuuute. :3

I need some of that pork soup, maan. :/

I thought we're all gonna see ALL THE CHARACTERS introduced throughout the anime, though. And I honestly needed more of that red dragon.

Truth be told, I enjoyed this show more than Shokugeki no Soma (and I dropped its 2nd season, fyi).

What a great way to end a good anime. Knowing about the "origin" of the restaurant. Bruuuh, I'm so gonna miss this show so much. ;-;

Every week I was so sad after hearing the ED first piano notes ... this week was really painful xD
I didn't expect anything at the beginning but now it's probably aots for me
I totally wouldn't mind a relaxing show like this one every season (man the OST *-*)

Same hefe, the ending song sounds really painful in my heart. I do really like this show, it's so calm. I just can't explain this feeling right now like all the animes that I have just finished before just instantly came into my mind out of nowhere.

Lol. Black dragon finally being comfortable to them by using her mouth to speak XD. Fitting ending my favorite legendary croquette. Q.Q now I'm wondering if Yomi cooked for the red dragon.

So the story comes full circle with all the relationships revealed.
Our beloved owner-san apparently is the grandson of the great hero of this Isekai, and got together with his Grandpa to open this shop. Would not mind if they gave us an episode about how Yomi fell into our world and met the owner. That in itself would be a great story.

And then we had our princess meeting by chance her Great-Grandfather at her Grandpa and Great Grandma's grave. The feels this gave me immediately flashed me back to the episode where she was reminiscing about them when they were alive. Makes you wonder though, just how those two never managed to live as long as Alexander.

Had thought they introduced Red and Kuro so that they would be some side plot involving some sort of danger that was happening to the Isekai world, which would be solved only by information sharing amongst the restaurant patrons in the restaurant and good food, lol. Shame that never came to fruition.

That said, there's always hope for a season 2. Would definitely watch.

Sigh... this was so satisfying to go through. While I can definitely understand the gripes people have had with this, it was very relaxing overall to me while constantly giving me such a smile, and it's often a beauty to see. I loved this very much, and tbh, this might be one of my most favorite of the season. Simple yet comforting. 8/10.

i started it out expecting nothing but it sure surpassed my expectations. probably one of the best anime this season. the finale felt so fitting but it also gave potential to so much more. i hope they make another season. a solid 8/10 for me.

I didn't expect to like this show as much as I did. I'm sure not many people did either, if like me, they were expecting just another bland isekai show. This show is one of the few examples of why it is worthwhile to give generic-sounding anime a shot. I can say with confidence it is one the comfiest anime ever made with some of the best character designs to go along with it.

I don't think its a masterpiece though. It may have gorgeous art but the show has moments of stilted/choppy animation or characters looking weird and off model. More than that, even the most hardcore of slice-of-life anime lovers might find themselves bored by the episodic storyline that breaks from the norm and focuses on side characters over primary ones. And I can imagine that even among people who like the show, there are probably certain episodes that felt boring to them. I mean, its bound to happen with the way the show throws so many different characters and their backstories at the audience.

Still, despite its flaws, I can't bring myself to feel anything else but love for it. Its the shining example of what authors can do with the isekai setting beyond the self-insert, male-oriented, action adventure, RPG-inspired power fantasies that are the norm for the genre. Its about time an LN author thought outside the box and made a story that isn't about about fighting monsters/baddies, collecting women, or saving the world. Much respect to the author for creating this gem of a story, and the studio that gave it the chance to be made into an anime.

Ah fuck, it's already over. I just quickly kept watching every new episode without even paying attention when it would actually end. Time flew so fast.

I don't really know why the hell I enjoyed this so much. Usually I get bored of this type of stuff easily, and I can definitely understand why there were people that were easily bored with it (read a couple of funny reviews about it), but I did anyway. Along with being so calming and pretty, it just felt very refreshing to me for some reason.

The way I would put it myself. 7/10. I liked it a lot more than I thought. I wouldn't mind a second season, if that would ever happen.

A fine show, but I didn't enjoy as much as I thought I would mainly because I felt it could have done more with its' premise. Did like seeing the connections between characters through.

Was a great show this season. I'm hoping for another season of this at some point down the road, though it probably won't receive one. I'd say it was probably the most relaxing series this season and easily one of my favorites, especially since it's rare for a series to make me want more after it's done. The dub was pretty good so far imo, and so I absolutely know I am going to purchase the dubbed BD copy immediately upon completion and release. I'm actually fairly curious where others might stand on the English dub of this series?

Pleasent end to a pleasent series. Nothing ground breaking, but a decent time pass.

Sometimes a bit too repetitive and predictable, but most of the characters we engaging and the way everything weaved together gave it a nice dreamy quality.

Glad I watched it on a weekly basis. I don't think this would make for a good binge show.
6/10 (but a close 7... maybe I will change my mind....)

Slightly hectic week

Solid show that was never really shit and never really amazing, enjoyable enough as a once a week show. Mostly very pleasant and will be a good but fading memory. Interesting concept carrying comparatively mediocre characters and subpar script. 4-5/10

Just out of pure enjoyment, I'll give it an 8. I'm not gonna lie, but even though were legitimate complaints and stuff like this being repetitive or just outright boring, it just kept giving me a nice smile and a warm fuzzy feeling on the inside. Doesn't help that this is one of the most beautiful series of this season to me. I honestly can see myself rewatching this. Wouldn't mind a second season at all.

I want more this kind of anime.

Tasty looking pork soup... Aletta can't wait to eat it - but she has to wait till evening. :D

Oh, and that Alex half elf is not a bad guy after all... he's a strong hero, but still very much afraid of Kuro. XD

Sad that this great anime has to end... hoping very much for a season 2. No more weekly good food.

Score = 9/10

IF you didnt eat at least a few times during this show, then DOOM ON YOU! :P SUch a pleasant show, mixing high fantasy with gorgeous food presentation. AS I said before, its like GATE + Bartender and I dig it. Hopefully there may be a 2nd season that expands upon the two worlds interactions. r. 8/10, and a beautiful ending theme. PE@CE ^~^

Oh boy, I can't express how over-zealous I am right now as I finish one of the best anime that has come in the recent times. Yeah, probably the best till yet after Rakugo's S2 :')

Entering with the casual mindset, I really didn't expect what the finale actually had in store for me. It did pull off a story and almost every piece of the plot started to get come together. It was executed fairly well if I may say so~
If you take notice of the elf who was accompanying the great mage, you'll notice it was none other than the same mercenary who was responsible for that lion head beast's defeat. To actually see him in the last episode was surprise alright.
But, the most biggest revelation has to be roots of Master's origins. To think he's the grandson of the most brave hero of the fantasy world makes you realize it isn't a mere coincidence, that he some sort of connection to the fantasy world after all~

Well that's enough talk about content of the episode and go back to our usual discussion routine.
Nothing hits home harder than as much as the nostalgia of your mother's cooking. I actually teared up a bit when that beautiful emotion was incorporated in the finale. It kinda reminded me of the film, Ratatouille.
The one final sight of all the folks enjoying their meal in the restaurant Nekoya was a nice touch. Well actually not all, hope they showed more but the mere glance of them was enough to get by I suppose. Liked it.

I know I've said it countless times in the previous posts already but I guess one final time wouldn't hurt it now, would it? ;D
The charm of Isekai Shokudou actually lies in its serene and heartwarming atmosphere. The mere sight of different characters enjoying their meal in such a tranquil is enough to make you enjoy the whole show gleefully~
While the animation is already good enough, real props goes to music which made the watch all the more immersing. Gonna miss its wonderful OP/ED. And of course our main staff - Kuro, Aletta and Master too :')

The show is something that is ought to be enjoyed in your leisure every once in a while~
Well that concludes my thoughts on the anime. I'm really glad I was able to experience it firsthand. Definitely AoTS for me. It was truly a lovely anime!

I couldn't go through this whole series on an empty stomach. It was impossible. lol

It's weird, but it felt pleasant when I was eating while watching the episode with the characters in this series eating. Calmly enjoying food while I was enjoying food, whether with my two friends by me or not watching with me. They also often felt the same when eating by themselves while watching, based on what they've told me. It's really weird, but I liked it.

Great Show. I was always hungry every damn episode. The way the food is described with the solid animation didnt help either. I WANT MY CROQUETTE and CURRY!

Surprised that this was based on an LN. Could have shown more backstory with the characters.

Need more Kuro and Aletta :D

I've eaten microwave scrambled egg with tomato ketchup dinne, for at least 5 days after the lizardmen episode. :D

The fisherman x mermaid episode also has delicious looking hamburger steak. Made me have a craving for some.. @_@

I agree with some of you. It didn't feel like a finale at all.

With every episode it had the same vibe. There wasn't any heightened suspense or tension connecting episodes. It felt very simple but entertaining enough to keep me watching the next episode wondering what food and people they will introduce. I can't say it's spectacular but it was nice. It felt like a filler show. A nice anime to watch when you are sick of the hyped shows that have major drama. A change of pace.

What saddened me the most was Red Dragon's less screentime throughout the series, Still a good show though.


Agreed. Needed more Red dragon lady.

Whoa. Was not expecting all that backstory in the final episode. Came out of nowhere, honestly. Interesting connections, though.

This was an easy show to digest every week. Pun intended, I guess. I actually don't know what looked more appealing: the food or the girls. Either way, one of the better shows on Crunchyroll this season, since Amazon basically had all the killers.

This series has simply been delightful. Screw it. I'm adding this into the favorites. Hearing that lovely ending song and sequence one last time while seeing the restaurant itself and hearing that familiar door chime... sigh. I love it. I can already tell I'm going to miss this so much already. A very simple and relaxing anime, and that by itself, along with the great looking art, makes it a beautiful series that just kept putting me in a smile after every episode. There probably won't be another season, but if there was ever a slight hope...

I will check that out. Anything else you know that you could kindly share? No, I'm not talking about Souma series. I want something potentially as similarly soothing and relaxing to me as this.
