Synopsis

Following the death of his beloved wife, high school teacher Kouhei Inuzuka tried to cook a meal for his five-year-old daughter Tsumugi despite his poor cooking abilities. But after one disastrous attempt, they began relying on food from convenience stores instead. While flower-viewing, Kouhei and Tsumugi run into Kotori Iida, one of Kouhei's socially awkward students. Once she spots Tsumugi trying to take a bite out of her lunch, Kotori invites them to her mother's restaurant.

In an attempt to feed Tsumugi something delicious, Kouhei barges into the restaurant in the middle of the night—only to find Kotori waiting for them and willing to help him in the kitchen. Although Kotori is as helpless as Kouhei when it comes to cooking, the two manage to make a simple dish. It turns out that, due to her mom's job, Kotori has been eating dinner alone for a long time. For the sake of Tsumugi's happiness, Kouhei promises her and Kotori that they will all eat together—thus marking the first of many sweet moments while sharing meals.

I watched the anime and read the manga, and well its good. I'm not gonna write much other than its a nice slice of life to read, and the only thing that I was upset over is that *SLIGHT SPOILER* they don't smash. That really killed it for me. Other than that its a great read and its fairly short and easy to binge read in a day or two.

Now for some fluff, The characters are enjoyable except for their dense nature of not being able to tell each other how they feel when they clearly hint in their internal monologues that they think ...

Amaama to Inazuma (2013-2018)

Started reading this whilst watching the anime and smashed it all out pretty quickly. That to me shows it was enjoyable since I was able to focus so much.

The story is very nice. Initially, a man lost his wife and he cares for his daughter in a daunting prospect to take on two-parent roles alone. He does make some great friends within a few months that leads to a great ongoing and hopefully forever relationship both romantically and not romantically. Friends along the way on both sides help influence the story and keep it going at a good pace.

The art ...

Story - The story is really great. This manga's main focus was food and the recipes and the father-daughter relationship. It was full of overloaded cuteness--- KAWAII ---. Loved the ending. But in the middle of the story, there was a little bit of romance and love which wasn't fulfilled. It left an unsatisfied feeling. But at the end of the manga, the mangaka made up to it.

Art- The art if this manga is good. Nothing to criticize about in my eyes. It showed a great number of details about everything. When the recipes were mentioned, the ingredients were shown nicely or rather perfectly and ...
