Koufuku Graffiti really ain’t half bad…if you are into this kind of anime. I have trouble with calm and peaceful slice of life anime, they bore me to death. Other than a few select scenes, I was just about sleeping at my desk watching this. I never understood slice of life like this one and I can’t say I found any drama or comedy to keep me going here. So this might be a very disappointing and short review.
There are really two things that stood out to me watching this first episode, the level of Wifu contest and the erotic eating scenes. I feel this show is all about the stereotypical conservative Japanese gender discrimination of girl trying to become the best wife they can be. When a girl is putting so much effort in making good food and then going to art school, you can be certain she is not aiming for a great personal career and she is banking everything on her becoming a good wife at home. I’m sure some girl appreciate that, but it just seems like some girls are forced into it without considering other options, it sickens me at time to see people’s life pigeonholed like that.
In to the second thing that stood out, I must say I found absolutely hilarious every single scene involving the main character eating. I think it had really no place in this anime, but damn seeing that girl bite into food with such a sensual and orgasmic face was absolutely hilarious. There was something so erotic and comedic about it, it is definitively something worth seeing. I’m too lazy for it, but I would love to see a gif of that and show that to everyone or even just a small clip of one of those moments. I wouldn’t recommend the show itself, but I would definitively recommend those few scenes for how unique and hilariously sensual they were.
As it comes to no surprise, I’m not very interested in this anime and therefore I won’t be watching it. I don’t believe this to be a bad anime though, simply really not in my taste.
