Prepare to have your mind blown. This is "food porn" at it's absolute best. A must-watch for sure.

Keeping the unnecessary ecchi-ness aside, both story and animation were great. It's a bit repetitive though. Only one or two seasons instead of five seasons of this craziness would have been much better. Overall it was good and definitely recommended from my side.

An amazing anime that makes you wanna eat everything they cook... but really you have to watch it !

avatar

Very hilarious and very cheerful! The character of protagonist is round. In the face of defeat, he will rise up and drain experience.

Update on Season 4 please. Thanks!

Great food genre anime I've ever watched, ecchi included, and doesn't get deviated from the main plot

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
