Welcome to the spring season 2014!

What is an anime season or season?
Anime series are broadcast roughly in fixed quarterly cycles on Japanese television, which are based on the seasons. The year begins with the winter season (January to March), continues with the jumping season (April to June) and the summer season (July to September) until the year ends with the fall season (October to December).

What should be posted here?
This thread is reserved for the fall 2013 anime season. Here you can discuss animer series currently running on Japanese television. You can discuss all other series and manga in the now watching / now reading (http://www.multimediaxis.de/threads/139427-now-watching-now-reading-9-Nichts-neues-hier) thread. For relaxed togetherness without a fixed topic, there is the tea room (http://www.multimediaxis.de/threads/139287-Teestube-2-Himmel-Arsch-und-Zwirn) and for all kinds of news about anime, manga and co . (http://www.multimediaxis.de/threads/135161-Neuheiten-%C3%BCber-Anime-Manga-und-Co-7)

Poor Ash is the laughing stock at school because, despite his unfashionably large star-shaped brand that marks him as a future dragon master, he has nothing to show for it. His dragon has never appeared.
Until now, that is. One fateful day, Ash's dragon awakes in full glory, but appears different than any dragon ever seen before — in the form of a beautiful girl! What's worse, Ash soon discovers that this new dragon has attitude to spare, as she promptly informs him that she is the master, and he, the servant.
Ash's problems with dragon riding have only just begun.

So, you want to watch the latest anime, but you don't really know where to start. No problem! This post is for everyone who is not that good at finding their way around.

Where to look
Of course, it seems difficult at first to watch current anime series - after all, they are shown on Japanese television and it can take years or ages until they are licensed and distributed in Germany. But you don't have to despair, because over time, smart people have recognized the great potential of anime fans outside of Japan and streaming platforms have been set up. There are a few offers in German, but there are bigger and better offers in English.

German subtitles
If you still want to watch series with German subtitles, take a look at the page of the Anime Copyright Alliance (http://www.anime-copyright-allianz.de/), which works with German publishers, fansubbern and other people who are doing something with it do have to work together. There you can also check under "German Anime Licenses" which anime you should leave your paws off of and - in the process of exclusion - which you can freely offend.

A legal German source for anime streams is peppermint (http://peppermint-anime.de/), where you can see some episodes for free close to the Japanese original broadcast with German subtitles and buy the rest in individual episodes or as a season pass.

English subtitles
If you speak English, the first port of call for streams is crunchyroll (http://www.crunchyroll.com/).There you can watch all episodes of a series older than a week in SD (480p) for free. For only 4.99 euros a month you can get a premium account with which you can stream subtitled series in the highest quality (720p, sometimes 1080p) every week shortly after the Japanese broadcast. Crunchyroll usually offers a good batch series for Europe, even if there are usually only half as many as in the USA. Just have a look at the current and announced simulcasts (http://www.crunchyroll.com/videos/anime/simulcasts) and decide if you might like the series. Almost 15 euros for a full season of several series is not a bad offer.
As an alternative to crunchyroll, there is also Daisuki (https://www.daisuki.net/), but that offers significantly fewer series.

Look what
Usually there is a bit of buzz weeks and months before a season that you can use to orient yourself.

Phase 1: Season Charts
Most people start to worry when the first season charts appear. For a static season chart you should visit The Cart Driver (http://thecartdriver.com/charts/), for a very up-to-date, dynamic one - and this is of course recommended - equip AniChart (http://anichart.net/winter) a visit. Based on the information given there; A representative poster picture, a short synopsis, the studio, the staff and the tags you can already limit and exclude, as if you were back in elementary school and would not choose fat Timmy because of his ecchi day in your football team. He's fat.

Phase 2: trailer
Of course, the brief summary and picture are not always entirely accurate, and anime goes in a differently expected direction. You can get a better insight into the anime through the trailers and PVs that appear shortly before the start of a season. Good (or particularly bad) PVs will certainly be posted here in the thread, otherwise I will try to populate all series with their previews as soon as possible. But of course the first impression can also be deceptive here, just like with fat Timmy, who looks like a teddy bear but smashes your hand like a grizzly when you tackle his chocolate bars.

Phase 3: The first episodes
If you are as unsure as fat Timmy in the swimming pool then you wait outside in front of the swimming pool and watch the others having fun or drowning in a cramp. Most series reveal their general direction and quality within the first three episodes and you can use them to gauge how the rest of the show will develop. An anime tends to pull surprisingly down rather than up.

A look at the anime blog of trust also helps for all three phases. Random Curiosity (http://randomc.net/) and Star Crossed Anime Blog (http://psgels.net/) are good places to go with English-speaking writers. I would not trust the bloggers in Germany, they are all malicious, without exception, especially Ringlord (http://baccano.wordpress.com/).
You shouldn't even think about visiting other anime forums like MyAnimeList or aniPodium. Knuckles punishes separatists and defeatists with death from anal deflation.

How to look

Anything below 720p is a crime. Whether via stream or with downloaded files, look in 720p and upwards if possible (corresponds to Bluray quality). The difference between 720p and 1080p is marginal depending on the resolution, especially since most 1080p releases are actually just embellished 720p things. If you have enough storage space and a correspondingly large monitor or TV, then use 1080p, if not, then 720p is sufficient.

It hardly plays a role when streaming, but most of the downloaded anime subs are in .mkv format, which has various positive properties and is the best choice for viewing on a PC, but does not work reliably or not at all on other devices. For PS3s, smartphones and the like, you should have files in .mp4 format. Look for the subgroup Deadfish, which actually doesn't subpt at all, but puts the subs of the correct subgroups into the handy .mp4 format for this very purpose.

In these times of peace, people of the first world should no longer have to rely on the use of Windows Media Player. There are some very good players out there that are suitable for playing most anime. Above all the vlc player (32 bit (http://www.chip.de/downloads/VLC-media-player-32-Bit_13005928.html) / 64 bit (http://www.chip.de/downloads/ VLC-player-64-Bit_53513913.html)) which can handle most common formats, including .mkv, without any problems. The Media Player Classic offers a suitable alternative, a slim player with absolutely no frills, but which has to be upgraded with the CCCP (http://www.cccp-project.net/) (Codec Pack) to make it .mkv controlled.

Discuss and present

You could of course upload pictures via the forum's internal system, but if you have more than one they will automatically be turned into thumbnails and you can often not enjoy their full beauty. If you prefer to go to imgur (http://imgur.com/) or minus (http://minus.com/), upload your pictures there and then put them in the [img] tag in the forum.

If you want to present openings, endings and trailers, it is best to use Dailymotion (http://www.dailymotion.com/de). Videos of all kinds have been falling on YouTube for a long time; this is no different with Dailymotion due to copyright, but less frequent and with fewer objects. So far I've only noticed vitamin A stuff that was taken by Dailymotion, but it's not available on YouTube either. Additionally, the betrayal of gaming makes Let's Playyer and Reviewer worry that anything outside of what you recorded is safe.
Apart from that, Dailymotion usually offers better quality, faster loading times and a smartphone app with which you can download videos to watch offline.

Studios that have studio in their name are listed under the word after. For example, Studio Pierrot is classified as Pierrot.

Don't be surprised if important studios are missing. I have only listed important studios that actually show something this season. If a studio is missing from this season that you consider important, please let me know.

AIC has 6 sub-divisions: "AIC ASTA", "AIC Build", "AIC Frontier", "AIC Plus +", "AIC Spirits" and "AIC Takarazuka". Before the millennium, AIC created anime like Blue Gender, El Hazard and Bubblegum Crisis, after the millennium AIC evolved into the anime of the mediocre anime. (With a few exceptions such as spaceship Yamato and Boku wa Tomodachi). The first to arrive with Ore no Imouto is shot.

Arms Corporation (Gokukoku no Brynhildr)
Arms was originally founded by Studio Pierrot Plus, a subsidiary of Studio Pierrot, to produce OVA hentai, but has grown so much over the course of the Zeti that they could also create other, more or less normal TV series. Yosumi Umetsu (see Names to know (http://www.multimediaxis.de/threads/139468-Anime-Winter-Saison-2014?p=3124564&viewfull=1#post3124564)) is the company's CEO.

Diomedea emerged as Studio Barcelona from a splinter group of Group ATC. While most of their series aren't particularly well animated, they have made some fun adaptations like Mondaiji-tachi, NouCome, and Dai Mahou Touge.

Gainax (Mahou Shoujo Taisen, Sadon Desu)
Ah, Gainax - the two-soul studio that lost its two souls. All the talent, all the ability and all the madness that Gainax has ever had are with Khara and Trigger. Neo Gainax has mediocre adaptations like Dandalian, Medaka Box, and Stella C3.

Gokumi (Atelier Escha & Logy)
Studio Gokumi was founded by former Gonzo employees and makes series with cute girls with almost criminal shots. You were responsible for Saki Achiga-Hen, Crime Edge and Koe de Oshigoto, among others.

GONZO (Blade & Soul)
Gonzo is made up of the people who left Gainax before it got cool. Their projects look similar. Studio Gonzo was a pioneer in the field of unnecessary CGI and is mainly responsible for projects that burn potential (Shanri-La, Last Exile: Fam, Hellsing). And a decade back also basilisk,

Hoods Entertainment (Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara)
Founded by former Gonzo people and I wonder why they're still in business at all. The motto of this company has to be something like "Pretty Shitty Anime". According to Qwaser, Fatasista Girl and BlazBlue, the studio building should have been burned to the ground long ago.

J.C. Staff (Fuun Ishin Dai Shogun, Selector Infected WIXOSS)
J.C. Staff was founded by former Tatsunoko Productions employees. There was a time when J.C. Staff Rie Kugumiya had permanently booked for Shana clone protagonists and gave me crass fear of Lolitsunderen, but they also have great works the Index / Railgun series, Slayers, Milky Holmes and whatever you may call it, Shin'ishi Watanabe does.

Satelight (M3, Nobunaga the Fool)
Satelight, a division of the Pachinko-Frima Sankyo Group, enjoys working with CG and has produced series such as Basquash !, Fairy Tail and Macross Frontier.

SHAFT (Mekaku City Actors, Nisekoi)
SHAFT was founded in 1975 as a regular anime studio, but in 2004 Akiyuki Shinbo appeared and wiped out any kind of sanity. SHAFT is known for their deviant style, which is a mixed bag of art, laziness and hard drugs. You enjoy working with Gainax. Their works are mostly hit or miss, they just shimmy with gigantic successes like Bakemonogatari or Madoka over cucumbers like Dance in the Vampire Bund or Sasami-san. Well-known works are for example Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei, Ef, the Monogatari series and Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

Shin-egg animation (Tonari no Seki-kun)
Shin-Ei Animation was founded as the successor to A Production and is owned by TV Asahi. You are the creators of the decades-old Shin-Chan and Doraemon series. Anyone who does not recognize their venerability gets an onion squeeze.

Sunrise (Keroro, Love Live! S2)
If Sunrise were an Aryan woman in the Third Reich, her mother crosses would already have mother crosses. It has not two, not three, not even eight, but a total of 11 1/2 daughter studios. Studio Sunrise really throws a lot of series and most of them are still good and successful. The company was founded by Ex-Mushi Pro employees and is a subsidiary of Namco Bandai. You are best known for the Gundam series, but have also created works such as The Vision of Escaflowne, Cocboy Bebop, Code Geass, My-Hime / Otome, Tiger 6 Bunny and Gintama.

Toei Animation (Abarenbou Kishi !! Matsutarou, HappinessCharge PreCure !, Majin Bone, Marvel Disk Wars)
Toei Animation is a time-honored studio that became part of Toei Corp. and could fill an entire carpet with well-known series like Dragonball, Pretty Cure and Sailor Moon.

- up -

The subgroups listed here have different types and levels of quality, but are all suitable for understanding an anime series. Special caution only applies to gg.

Anime koi

Steals the same as HorribleSubs from crunchyroll, but sometimes makes a few adjustments to the language so that Baka-Gaijin can understand the series.


Deadfish (: A)
[Deadfish] is not a subgroup in and of itself. They take the publication of proper groups and convert them to .mp4 format to make series work properly on other devices outside of the computer. If you want to watch your anime on smartphones or other devices, then choose Deadfish.



gg can fabricate useful subs, but often just doesn't do it. The group often uses everyday American language and memes. Can be fun, but often hits the wall.


HorribleSubs: A.
HorribleSubs offer the best mix of quality and speed. They are usually the fastest group to produce an understandable sub - albeit by stealing their subtitles from crunchyroll.





Unlimited Transaltion Works is probably the best choice you can make right now. Your works are neatly translated.

This thread was created with the help of TVTropes, Wikipedia, MyAnimeList, AniChart, Anime News Network, crunchyroll and of course a lot of fluffy Sakuranet users.

Have fun watching and discussing the new season!

Nanana - They made My Lovely Ghost Kana without Kana and without happy sex. : rolleyes:

Bokura Wa Minna Kawaiso - dunno if not too perv.

Mahou Shoujo Taisen - Being watched

Girls und Panzers OVA - Very yes.

Hm, don't know. The season hasn't made a strong impression on me so far, the most interesting series are the sequels (Mushishi, Jojo). And the Anime Mirai projects, above all Harmony.

I will definitely watch Love Live again, even if the OVA was bad. Not high expectations, but let's see. The same is actually true of Yama no Susume. I won't do Date A Live to myself again. I'm very interested in Tamako Market in the films, but not in the rest of the film. Atelier Escha & Logy is of course watched. Gokukoku no Brynhildr looks like the new Strike the Blood! / Mahou Sensou. I said it first.

Also: Ping Pong The Animation, because Masaaki Yuasa (Mind Game, Kaiba, Tatami Galaxy). : A

All in all, it looks pretty weak in contrast to autumn and winter, especially since there is no overhang from winter apart from Nisekoi, Space Dandy and PreCure.

Whoooo! I have exactly one anime that I've found interesting so far: Captain Earth. And I'm not even really sure if I can do anything with, because Mecha. > _> Maybe not that bad, then I might get my backlog worked off a bit.

EDIT: Oh dammit, the second Mushishi season somehow totally suppressed. But I have to watch the first season anyway, so it's not really relevant either.

I liked at least Atelier Meruru and Atelier Escha looks good. I will definitely give myself PreCure this time. Jojos is a duty. No Game No Life should be good and Mekaku City Actors and Sidonia no Kishi look appealing. Marvel Disc Wars will be watched for the lulz,

Can only agree with Mave so far, doesn't look very rosy, but there is still a lot of time in which things can fly in and out.

Mekaku City Actors and Black Bullet almost sound interesting. The rest interests me nada.

I really liked Atelier Meruru and Atelier Escha looks good .. Heard it is NOT about women anymore. So I'm pretty much more as far as the anime is concerned.

Heard it is NOT about women anymore. So I'm pretty much more than anime.

Yes, there is a dude as the second main character (Logy). Other than that, there were often men as party / supporting characters.

I hope GUST does the soundtrack. If so, then Instantwin.


Girls und Panzers OVA Definitely.
Akuma no Riddle High School Killer + Yuri? Am I doing it xD
Atelier Escha & Logy I don't have high expectations at first, but I will definitely see it, simply because Atelier.
No Game No Life Belief ch.1 from the manga I liked it very much, I'll definitely take a look.
Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san Certainly useful for a few quick laughs.
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei I think I ticked that for bingo, so I can give myself a few episodes of. ^^
Black Bullet could be something. Let's see.

Actually fits as a yield.

Definitely Sidonia no Kishi!
Otherwise, Gokukoku no Brynhildr, Black Bullet, Captain Earth, Mekaku City Actors and Akuma no Riddle sound very interesting.
It doesn't look like much, but in the winter season my first impression wasn't very promising either.

There are sure to be a lot of other series too. You also have to consider that the whole 2-cour series expires in autumn and therefore another ~ 15 slots will be available in addition to the winter stuff.

I've read a little about Sidonia no Kishi now. Doesn't sound bad at all, although the premise isn't all that interesting even now, and appears to be Polygon Pictures' first major work. The director has only made Detective Conan films before. Series Composition is by Sadayuki Murai, who has screenplay in a few well-known films and Series Composition by, among others. Natsume Yuujinchou did. The mix of styles from SciFi / Cyberpunk / Steampunk seems very appealing to me.

Read the manga and BOKURA WA MINNA KAWAISOU is less perverted than this cook-battlemanga, but anyway, in the first couple of chapters it didn't really find a topic. Is somewhere in the middle for light entertainment.

Nothing at all that appeals to me.

I've read a little about Sidonia no Kishi now. Doesn't sound bad at all, although the premise isn't all that interesting even now, and appears to be Polygon Pictures' first major work. The director only made Detective Conan films before. Series Composition is, however, by Sadayuki Murai, who has already screened a few well-known films and Series Composition by, among others. Natsume Yuujinchou did. The mix of styles from SciFi / Cyberpunk / Steampunk seems very appealing to me. I read it mainly because of the cool SciFi setting and the drawings by Tsutomu Nihei. (I also like the two imaginable pairings / romance miniplots with the main character Tanikaze. That works only marginally, but both results would be quite peculiar. ^^) I especially like the strange aliens. There is plenty of action (mainly in the form of mecha fights) but the story gets going rather slowly. There are already interesting approaches and the main characters are okay (the main character sometimes comes across as a bit stupid) but so far my impression was that the plot progression was a bit short between the frequent fights. But there is no steampunk. Just so that there are no false hopes. However, the anime will not be able to convey the drawings properly. In general, I'm not yet convinced of the CGI style either. But since I like the manga, I'm still looking forward to it.

There's a newer trailer here so you can get an idea of ​​the style for yourself. (But it doesn't work in Germany. So start proxmate or something else.)

So far, not really much interesting. Lots of "can" series. But nothing that has to be somehow. But maybe many of them are quite useful. I will certainly take a look at some of the times. That worked out well this season. But actually works more like a winter season (normally they are always the weakest and then it increases).

Well, sequels don't really interest me. In the rarest of cases I have seen the predecessors (and if they didn’t excite me enough to show interest in sequels / I’m not looking at OVA anyway ... Except where I actually saw everything including all OVA: Mai-Hime and Mai -Otome), because mostly only stuff that doesn't interest me (= appeals to the masses and is successful) sequels. But the plan can still change in the next few months.

What caught my eye: This samura rhinos. At the moment we have Nobunaga the Fool, which is based on the Sengoku period on the eastern planet + Mechs. Seems to be popular with 'Mechs and robots like that right now. "Fuuun Ishin Dai Shogun" is supposed to start in April. Bakumatsu time probably. Take a look. But the character that you see everywhere seems to be the main one, looks a bit too uninteresting to me and outside only girls. Could be rather boring and a lot of action, no story.

I really hope that ping pong will be in the same vein as ping pong club. And Captain Earth becomes a blend of Captain Planet. But probably not.

The only really interesting are:
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crudaders
Knights of Sidonia
Mushishi S2

And I want to know what the fuck Kenzen Robo Daimidaler is.


Bahaha, it's Beyblade with Marvel. : hehe:

Looks interesting to me so far:
Akuma no Riddle
Atelier Escha & Logy ~ Tasogare no Sora no Renkinjutsushi ~
Black Bullet
Blade & Soul (even if I would prefer the game behind it to finally be released here in the west)
Break blade
Captain Earth
Fuun Ishin Dai Shogun
Kenzen Robo Daimidaler
Mekaku City Actors
No game, no life
Sidonia no Kishi

At least that's going to be the anime that I'll see the first episodes of. Which are then dropped and which are not is a different matter. ^^

take a look over it ...

Bokura wa Minna Kowaisou and Isshuukan Friends
Both are here for the same reason. Brain's Base ... (yes, they did OreGairu) are finally adapting something else again. (yay, no otome or gag comedy) ... and that went really well the last few times. Baccano, Penguindrum, Spice and Wolf and so on come from the forge. Isshukan Friends is then from Shoutarou Suga, who was responsible for OreGairu and Uchouten Kazoku (for me two of the best series of the last year) but also co-scripted at FMA: Brotherhood, Eden of the Ease, GitS: SAC. That can be something.
And both short summaries can still drift in all directions so far. Sounds great. Could be.

Ping pong the animation
Truly top hype. Manga by the maker of Tekkonkinkreet, adapted by Masaaki Yuasa. Hell yeah, the one from Tatami Galaxy. Great guy.
High hopes, because the Directo might turn things around a little differently

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders
JoJo, love. The show is supposed to be really good from here on, so it has to be good ... However cyborg nazis, killer squirrels, and the noble Robert Speedwagon can top it.

Captain Earth
Puuuuh. Heavy call. I missed it at first, but then I saw that Yoji Enokido is involved ... FLCL, Utena, Redline etc. etc. etc.
Plot looks typical for a grill, but you can't really deduce much from it. I have hopes for the writer, so I'll definitely take a look

Mahouka Koukou no Rettosei
Madhouse stop. Mainstream Action Madhouse ... Somehow the show looks very cynical ... And I've read funny to very very good things about the LN. Could the next golden time be for me: /
Or it's going to be a WitchCraft Works thing ... Where I still wonder why it's entertaining me so well

Mekaku City Actors
Anime original. Finally again. It should be based on some music MMD project, but I have no plan for that. Ergo, Shaft will be able to go nuts here. 'Yuuki Yase may also be on board, who was also with Durarara, some Monogatari and Madoka. Original animes are my thing anyway, as they are often really designed for the medium and do not have to run after some stubborn guideline. I like that. I'm happy.

Knights of Sidonia
I like the art style. Could go completely to the fan of Attack on Titan fans. I think it's also from the mangaka that made BLAME and Biomega. So it could be something for me, and apparently it's his attempt to make himself known to a wider crowd, so it won't be that weird ...

Mushishi Season 2
Darn, I still have to watch the first season. It's one of the hype anime from the 00's

Selector Infected WIXOSS
Same problem, different writer ~ Mari Okada. A hit and miss for me. (love Toradora, NagiAsu, Anohana, Gosick bwäh). But mostly very good character writing and the first thing I read about the series could show off all of her talents. For me the Dark Horse candidate so far.
A little Madoka Magic in it?

Other things that looked semi-interesting when flying over quickly, just uninformed:
Black Bullet
Break blade
Haikyuu, Baby Steps (yes I'm a sports honing Mongo)
Gokukoku no Brynhildr
Hitsugi no Chaika aka BONES, but I think it's the Star Driver type ... And that's a big turn off.
Sidonia no Kishi

btw @Ianus: Koch-Battlemanga. Tell me more. Already translated?

I'm pretty sure I will follow:
Akuma no Riddle (Action? Check! Yuri? Check! Fucking insane plot idea? Check!)
Black Bullet (Mystery-SciFi? Count me in. Hopefully this goes a bit in the direction of GITS / Psycho-Pass)
Jojo: Stardust Crusaders (Jojo stop.)
Gokukoku no Brynhildr (X-Files plot with romance insert, could be good)
Selector Infected WIXOSS (Yes! Finally another Battle Royale / Survival Game Anime, I love this stuff)
Sidona no Kishi (I've only heard good things about the manga, and the story sounds cool)

They all sound quite interesting from the description and could be something. Then I'll probably still watch Soredemo Sekai ha Utsukushii (finally something again that sounds like halfway classic Shoujo), Mekaku City Actors (could be colorful action fun like Hamatora) and Ishhuukan Friends (the absolutely only series this season that ' ne halfway usable serious romance premise delivers) in, which I would like to give a chance to hook me.

btw @Ianus: Koch-Battlemanga. Tell me more. Already translated? SHOKUGEKI NO SOMA, Shounen Battle Manga about a boy who cooks so well that the women who eat his food are lacking. Or that they get visions like the clown from Yakitatte Japan. Is effectively Yakitatte Japan, just more erotic and therefore very good entertainment. At least until the opponent inflation will make the whole thing totally stupid.

In cooking, I found a case that IRL could even work in the same way as in the manga. For something that is effectively a superhero comic, this is very surprising.

Thanks for the tip, I haven't had such a great cooking duel manga in a long time. :)

there are more of them O.o?

Cooking duels / cooking series are not necessarily rare ...

Cooking duels / cooking series are not necessarily rare ...

new world to me. As far as Toriko and Drops of God are concerned, I got to the kitchen fair ... I know Cooking Princess by name, but I don't know a real cooking duel Manga, nope.
And yep i'm insta excited for it. shokugeki is already very popular.

At least Yakitate Japan should tell you something? Although there are back duels there.

Oh yes, please differentiate between the genres "back duel" and "cook duel". YOU'RE WELCOME. : D

At least Yakitate Japan should tell you something? Even though there are back duels there.

Name yes, read in no. Also didn't know what it was about: D

Well, there is Chuuka Ichiban !, Nobunaga no Chef, Addicted to Curry, Mister Ajikko, Oishinbo ala Carte, Aji Ichi Monme, Bambino !, Bartender, Cooking Papa, What did you eat Yesterday, The Drops of God ...

I personally found Nobunaga no Chef, for example, very entertaining ... Bartender has a lot of OTHER drama, Oishinbo is ... quite nationalistic, but well written and the technical information is interesting. Cooking Papa and What did you eat Yesterday are primarily about people feeding themselves ... and there are also a few Shounen Battle series in the list.



Name yes, read in no. Also didn't know what it was about: D

WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK ??????? Missed Yakitate Japan? Fo Real? I read the series until just before the bread golem, then it was too stupid for me.

Oh yes, please differentiate between the genres "back duel" and "cook duel". YOU'RE WELCOME. : D
Naturally. I prefer barbecue duels.

WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK ??????? Missed Yakitate Japan? Fo Real? I read the series until just before the bread golem, then it was too stupid for me.
Was that with the Yakitate !! 25? It was good that they cut the arc for the anime. At least the manga deals a little more with the supporting characters. Tsukino in particular is very under-buttered in the anime.
