XDDD I laughed at the synopsis xDD

I wonder what kind of war is this:
1. might be girls war over the guy to eat her bento,thus, a harem?
2. eating contest? xDD
3. cooking contest? xDD
4. acquiring the best bento on that grocery store? xDD
5. bloodshed just for a bento? xDD

Eitherway, the synopsis itself wants me to check it out. Hopefully, it won't be a fail xDD


it is 4
acquiring their target bento in the stores
they have territories, tactics, invasion plans (to other's territories)
and it is very action-packed and funny


This is enough to try out the first episode.
I'm in.

Count me in. I saw it and was like " What the hell Ben ten? Please not, please not~.

You better not be implying that something is wrong with Ben Ten.


there are many things wrong with ben 10. my nieces made me watch it just the other day and i wanted to gouge my eyes out and bath in blood rather than finish the episode.

Ah yes, i had pretty much the same thoughts when watching that, i saw 2 whole episodes though. : o

What's the matter, not MOE, KAWAII and UGUUU~ enough for you?


in fact it was missing all of those but that wasnt the reason. The real reason is that if a six year old likes it to a point where they are hysterically laughing, it obviously means its not meant for people my age. It is a series made to keep little kids entertained enough so they leave their parents alone which means for us big people, it is merely the excrement of anime.

This sounds ridiculously weird and a bit funny XD I might watch it :3

Anime have always made drama out of food wars, but I've never thought that I would see one as the main plot. This will be interesting.

Feb 22, 2011 11:09 PM by SagaraYuzuru

it sounds totally lame.....but oh well.

I heard about this light novel before. I'm surely going to watch this if I heard correctly that despite it's uh, story, this is actually pretty good.

No way to guarantee whether it'll be any good (just like anything else), but the sheer absurdity of the concept warrants a look when it comes out. :/
