Yeah that's gotta be part of it. Plus Inami, Poplar, and Yachiyo are all cute so that's another reason to keep coming. Besides maybe some of these people are here due to Kyoko's underlings "encouraging" them to stop by the restaurant .

Aww... I found Sato liking Yachiyo to be so cute. Dunno, something about having that stern of a man having a crush on someone as lively as Yachiyo contrasting really nicely and all. And when assistant chef asks Sato how he can't work it out with Yachiyo, man that was priceless. XD

Well that explains it...

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...ptitleqxnl7vpv

Why there's so much Jun/Yachiyo fanart on pixiv compared to Yachiyo/Kyoko (Pixiv, I am disappoint).

So let me get this straight

Jun likes Yachiyo who likes Kyoko-onee sama who is using Yachiyo for food and Yachiyo is using Jun for food to give to Kyoko? So where would blue hair guy fit into this since he seems to be practically yaoibait with his soft spoken voice.

And Kyoko's uniform from 10 years ago reminds me of the MariMite uniform.


Visual hint?

Quote:
My condolences for Satou. Liking a girl that is full yuri for Kyouko. It's pretty much hopeless for him. Yachiyo's whole world revolves around doing something for Kyouko. While those kids were picking on Yachiyo I kind of worry about what happened to them . Poor Otoo though. His wife...wanders off and he nearly gets cut in half by Yachiyo.
If this were real life, Otoo would be dead. It's been proven on mythbusters you can't catch a sword. Question is who will kill him first, Yachiyo or Inami-chan.

Lol at Inami lesbian jokes. But don't worry, she'll come round soon enough.

And seriously, when watching this episode all I thought when I saw Yachiyo and Kyouko was 'JUST FUCK ALREADY!!'

I would make screenshots of all the Yachiyo/Kyoko moments but this stream player has this ugly play arrow on it.

That's the joke. She's a lazy manager.

And gluttonous eaters have always been in anime. Jewelry Bonney, Goku, Naruto.

Well, gluttony eaters have been there in anime, but those shonen ones are mentioned because of like, food = power.

Kyouko is just kind of spoiled and has ridiculous metabolism. Kind of like Yui from K-On!. They will always be slim and hungry because of lucky genes.

In terms of Episode 3, liked it better than others. I kind of pulled around on Inami since she knows about her illness and she does want to work on it. That makes me feel pretty good. But the more I think about it, the more I dislike Kyouko and Yachiyo.

Yachiyo is definitely that insane-kind of devotion. You definitely wish they would get it on so Yachiyo could get it out of their system. Explaining the devotion with Yachiyo's past was cool and pretty funny, but the way she attacks Otoo-san for giving Kyouko sweets really makes me raise my brow. Kyouko didn't even seem to care, so it's like, Yachiyo's devotion just feels kind of...lame.

Satou made the episode work for me, because he's really cool and respectable too. The cooks really feel like an entertaining duo and I'm glad they are getting more time. Though, I have to sigh at how Satou has a crush on Yachiyo. Not only do we see that it's not going to happen, but I thought the romance was going to be downplayed with this show. :X

I know I feel like I'm nit-picking a lot here, but when it culminates in your head for a while, it starts to get to you. I don't know whether this anime wants to be full on wacky or true to life, because it can't seem to walk on that thin-line.

Difference is, Yui is just plain (for lack of better words) retarded. Kyouko is spoiled but I guess it's part of her corrupt character. She calls up thugs to beat up customers to food and eats her own restaurant's food.

Wasn't the 4koma written by a girl? It's probably going to stay one-sided and Yachiyo's devotion likewise. But something about it appeals to my shipping self.

Yachiyo's devotion looks wasted to me although kyouko might be trying to 'play along' with her cause she gets free food althoug she looks cute when she gets all 'lovely dovey' with kyouko...too bad for satou though.

I'm not sure why you thought it'd be downplayed to the extent of maybe...being nonexistent? It's a slice-of-life show set in a restaurant where most of the employees are school age or slightly above (Satou and Souma have to be out-of-school, right? But they don't look THAT much older). As such, there are bound to be crushes and whatnot, some of which might develop into actually relationships, others of which probably won't.

With just 3 episodes so far, I don't think you've given it enough time to be making such a definitive statement. So far, it's doing fine by me. Like any gag comedy (c.f. Nodame), it goes to extremes both in terms of situation (there is no way on earth Yachiyo wouldn't be arrested in real life) and physics (Takanashi should be dead by now...if Inami were actually that strong, anyway), but that doesn't mean that it can't have believable character development all the same.

On an unrelated note, I'm not sure if anyone's mentioned it yet, but the first DVD is out in two days, with the Op and Ed single being part of the limited edition. It will also have character commentary written by mangaka Takatsu Karino, with Takanashi, Poplar and Kyoko serving for the first DVD (Satou and Yachiyo are slated for the second).
I get the feeling that I'm one of the only people here seriously considering buying this though...they really know how to push my buttons with those extras!

You're not the only one My previous post.

*Sigh* With this, it means I'm currently importing 4 series at the moment (Darker Than Black 2, Kimi ni Todoke and Baka Test (blu-ray versions) being the other three)...actually 4.5 if I count in the 3rd OVA for Shakugan no Shana S being released in June. It's a shame the series is currently airing in SD and being released on DVD only instead of blu-ray.

Yeah I actually saw that episode as well. I'm sure that Otoo is damn glad he is living in an anime and not real life . I think Yachiyo is probably his greatest threat. He has to bring Kyouko food from his trips due to her gluttony. He should be safe from Inami thanks to him not being around much and being "air."

Did like how Inami handled those complex questions though. It's all about instinct .

Wow, for such a cute little comedy show, this show is awfully well directed. The pacing is constantly good and the smallest conversations leads up very well.

Then I saw Yoshimasa Hiraike's resumé and he has done some pretty impressive work. I can sorta see the influence he had on Kaleido Star 2nd season and he seems to have learned his comedy chops from stuff like Sketchbook Full Colors and even Juuden-chan. I hope he works more with these semi-slice-of-life, semi-comedies.

Loved episode 3. The highlight of the episode for me was Nakata Jouji's character, Otoo-san. It's not often we get to see him in such roles, and he did a fantastic job at it. His backstory was just hilarious: searching for his missing wife that apparently doesn't even look human and that got lost during shopping (!!). I find the timing of the jokes in this anime is just perfect.

Then there's Kyouko and Yachiyo's backstory. As expected, Yachiyo is completely in love with Kyouko (and borderline yandere), but I didn't think this started THAT far back. We also know why she wears a katana all the time now, and the explanation was surprisingly simple. She wears a katana to defend herself and yet that's precisely the reason she was bullied. Oh, the irony. Loli Yachiyo was pretty cute...

About Kyouko, all I have to say is... she's living the dream.

PS: just when I was starting to think Poplar looks a little bit like my goddess Mikan, Saito rearranges her hair into a pineapple. That was pretty funny.

He also directed, wrote, and storyboarded episode 3 of Mayoi Neko Overrun this week. That's a show I love and many people seem to loathe, so I can't guarantee satisfaction, but he did it, anyway. I'd call that show a sentimental moe slice-of-life comedy. It has a unique staff arrangement whereby the overall director (kantoku) changes every week.

At it's worst the relationship very stereotyical.

Another female protector and a girl who becomes slavishly devoted as a result.

Issues aside, that would make KitaEri's Kyouko 18 then?



Anyway what I've learnt from yuri shows according to visual hints.

Light colour (blonde) hair+Black Hair=gay
Genki, assertive Girl+Shy, introvert Girl=Gay
Someone tall and someone short=gay
Short hair+long hair=gay
Older girl+younger girl=gay

Did I miss anything?

Shame this show doesn't give us recipes.

Inami has made me a masochist. I want to get beaten up by a cute redhead at work. Possibly the only thing I find moe oddly.

Actually, I like her more because she is beating up that evil lolicon/pedophile and putting him in his place. Get rid of lolicon. And get rid of androphobia. It all makes sense. The fact that Jun is Lelouch makes it even more delicious. At least for me, she is the saviour of this show for putting lolicons in their place. Not that, I advocate beating up people who like loli shows in real life it's just that sometimes they annoy me with their obsession just like Katanashi. And if Takanashi/Inami doesn't work, we can go for 3rd option. Inami protects her older lover from that evil man/lolicon LeDouche.

This is Inami's new theme song
Spoiler for Rocky Inami:

Your pic isn't working. But aside from that, if yuri were really that common, things would be a lot more awesome. Frankly speaking, I'm not seeing very much yuri here at all. Kyouko's acts can hardly be taken that way even with goggles. The emotional connection is just so lacking here that you could hardly even call it 'service'. I guess I'll have to watch this for other things...

Quote:

That's a terrible question. Within that selection, I suppose I would have to very reluctantly choose 'traps'. Such a act would still be very unfortunately gay though.


Anyway, the Inami x Takanashi is becoming kinda totally blatant. lol, wth was that? She's afraid of men, and yet she hides behind him? Not only that, but to stop herself from hitting the other guy, she hugs him? Yeah, their relationship right now is still entirely about inflicting pain and disgust respectively, but in terms of appearances it couldn't be more obvious. lol, not that I disapprove, of course.

Episode 3 was alright. Towards the end I was kinda thinking 'they seem to have run out of material'; most mysteries/points of interest have already been covered. Then they reminded me that there's still Satou-kun (er, or that blue-haired guy--maybe I've got the names mixed up). We'll see where they go after they finish covering him next episode.
