Amaama to Inazuma Review — D+


A teacher and his student learn to cook dinner together for the teacher’s daughter.

Meh. This was mostly just boring.

I think little girls in anime are so weird. They act nothing like actual children. Not that anime teenagers or adults act like actual people either, but with children I find the disconnect particularly jarring. They’re so cute and innocent and stuff, but in real life I know that children are evil little monsters.

I guess this is probably an unfair residue from Usagi Drop, but I’m also watching this the entire time with the fear in the back of my mind that the teacher is going to either marry his daughter or his student. It’s getting to the point where I’m starting to ship the student just so I can avoid having to see him marry his daughter. I don’t know anymore, anime has broken me as a human being.

On the bright side, at least these people follow fairly decent knife safety practices, unlike the typical anime kitchen practices which give me nightmares after I see the moe girl cooking who would in real life be missing a few fingers by now.


  • Storytelling – D – Every episode follows the same pattern. This pattern is boring.
  • Voice – C – I guess the cooking with lolis angle is new.
  • Characters – D – Everyone is too nice, it hurts me.
  • Attention Grab – F – Knocked me right out.
  • Production – C – Looks fine.
  • Overall – D+

Recommendations – Barakamon, Shokugeki no Soma

    1. These shows generally tend to bore him. It happened last season with Flying Witch, and he dropped series such as Non Non Biyori. (He did like Tanaka-kun though, so you can’t say he dislikes ALL iyashkei)

      He also said he thought the show started out decently enough, and he doesn’t generally drop shows he likes the 1st episode or two of.

      1. Draggle knows I’m teasing and that our interest in shows tend to completely run opposite of each other 🙂 It’s to the point where I’m shocked when we actually agree on a series!
