Hmmm, something about this reminds me a lot of last season’s favorite Sweetness and Lightning, a show that pleasantly surprised me with its charming and sweet nature.

Looking at this one, I do see some promise from this. OK, let’s check out this sh–
“Episode 1: Bukkake Udon”

Plot Summary: Tokyo-based web designer Sōta Tawara returns to his hometown of Kagawa for the holidays to find a strange child in his family’s udon shop. The child can’t speak but has both ears and a tail.

First Thoughts: OK, turns out bukkake udon isn’t what you think it is. Still a weird name though.

Anyway, on my first impression of the show…..yeah, another low-key anime only this time, the adorable child of the show can’t speak and has a tail….so he’s a fox or something?
Maybe saying this is like S&L might be a stretch especially him running his old family’s udon shop with a little kid is a far cry from a widow raising his daughter with help from a high school girl and also lots of food. Here, just cut the widow element out of it and it’s a guy who in his 30s, still not married or have kids and you have this show.
Also, this is from LIDEN FILMS? Usually, their work isn’t as good as I heard but here…..it’s passable animation from what I saw.

Yeah, I don’t have much to say here but it’s a decent watch. I wouldn’t mind watching this throughout the season so once again….


Once again, another show that seems alright to watch.

I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and I’m getting a little hungry.
