TNT: Isekai Yururi Kikou Chapters 41-80 by Minazuki Shizuru

This week I’m back with the second set of chapters in Takumi’s journey in another world with children. It’s Isekai Yururi Kikou Chapters 41-80 by Minazuki Shizuru!

Plot Synopsis: 『I’m terribly sorry』 A god was suddenly prostrating in front of me, Kayano Takumi. I was apparently killed by mistake. Moreover, I can’t be reborn again. However, I am able to live in a different world? Then, let’s do that, please. The god made a mistake again and transferred me into a dangerous forest. Seriously, what’s going on? Besides, there are children here. I can’t leave them here, I will take care of them…

Plot: This is another heartwarming set of chapters in a series that just makes you smile, unless you are a heartless monster. I can’t help you if that’s the case. Honestly this set is pretty fun with Takumi meeting a peer of his along with Allen and Elena. The fact that those two kids are ridiculously overpowered just like Takumi is just hilarious sometimes.

Characters: We get to meet quite a few new faces in this set of chapters, which is good. Personally I like Takumi’s peer the best. As for who that is I’ll leave it to you to find out. However Allen and Elena are still just way too adorable and make you want to just grin like a doofus.

Overall: An awesome second set of chapters. If you haven’t started this series yet I’d advise doing so. It’s a nice change of pace from other series.

Anime Sunday: Menu for Emiya Family Episode 01 Impressions

This week for Anime Sunday I’ve got another series from the latest season of Anime. It’s my Today’s Menu for Emiya Family Episode 01 Impressions!

Plot Synopsis: The story centers around Shirou Emiya cooking dishes for the other Fate/stay night characters.

Plot: The plot is thin, this doesn’t take place in a Fuyuki where a Holy Grail War is waging. Instead it’s a simple Slice of Life series that is quite a bit like Shokugeki no Soma, except without the fanservice.

Characters: This episode only features Artoria, Shirou, Illya, Sakura and Taiga, but I imagine later episodes will show other characters like Rin or Medusa.

Art: The animation is done by ufotable, although it definitely has a softer feel than most of their usual series. That being said it’s still got awesome animation, as I’ve come to expect from their studio.

Music: The music is pretty good, although given the short nature of the episodes it’s not really the focus of the series.

Overall: A fun watch, and for those culture junkies or foodies you’ll enjoy learning about various tidbits that are littered through out this episode.

For those who like: Cooking, Culture, Fate, Awesome Artwork.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, but how can you hate all of that?

Anime Sunday: Isekai Shokudou Episode 01 Impressions

This week for Anime Sunday I’m covering another series from the Summer 2017 Season. It’s my Isekai Shokudou Episode 01 Impressions!

Plot Synopsis: At the bottom floor of the building with a dog signboard, in the shopping district near the office street, there lies a cafeteria called “Youshoku no Nekoya,” that has an illustration of a cat on the door. It’s been open for fifty years and has satisfied various salarymen from nearby offices. Despite it being called a Western cuisine cafeteria, it also provides other varieties of menus. For the people of this certain world, it’s their one-and-only special cafeteria. There is, however, one secret to “Nekoya.” The cafeteria is closed to the public every Saturday in order to make way for special guests. When a bell rings, customers from different places of birth and races appear who ask for mysterious and delicious dishes…

Plot: The plot isn’t action packed, if you are looking for an action filled adventure, you are going to be disappointed. Now if you enjoy Slice of Life crossed with Fantasy and Cooking, Isekai Shokudou is right up your alley. This first episode introduces us to the resturant Nekoya and it’s customers from the other world. It’s quite interesting and while it’s not action packed and really not my usual genres I genuinely enjoyed my time watching this first episodes.

Characters: This episode also introduces us to our main character who everyone calls Owner. We’re also introduced to the Red Empress Dragon and Aletta as well. Frankly I enjoyed all the characters we were introduced to, and can’t wait to see even more introduced.

Art: The artwork is excellent, which is good because it truly conveys how good the food must taste.

Music: The musical score fits the series perfectly, and even the opening and ending themes are pretty appropriate for the series as well.

Overall: If you love food and don’t mind not having a bunch of action this series will be right up your alley. If you want high tension and plenty of action you won’t enjoy as much, probably. Isekai Shokudou has it’s own kind of charm that just makes you enjoy watching it, or at least that’s how I felt after this first episode.  However if you are hungry I suggest not watching this, as it will just make it worse.

For those who like: Fantasy, Isekai, Food, Slice of Life, Excellent Plot, Fantastic Cast of Characters, Awesome Artwork, Great Musical Score.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.

Anime Sunday: Shokugeki no Soma Episode 01 First Impressions

shokugeki_volume1

This week on Anime Sunday I’m covering my first impressions on Shokugeki no Soma’s Anime!

Plot: The plot so far sticks very well to the first chapter, which is great. I enjoyed watching it come to life via amazing animation. Did a very good job so far, and hopefully it’ll continue doing so in future episodes.

Art: The anime adaptation of this series is beautiful, which is awesome because it brings out the best thing about this series which is of course the food. Everything is so detailed and dramatized that it does very well at conveying the tension the source had.

Characters: Soma is being voiced exactly how I imagined him, and his father is as well. The rest of the cast has yet to be introduced, but I’m really looking forward to hearing Tadokoro and Erina being voiced.

Overall: This is so far an amazing adaptation of the source material and well worth watching.

That’s it for this week’s Anime Sunday!
