Yay! This is Gido Amagakure’s first anime! You know, Bee-kun, she is quite the accomplished manga artist.

Does this mean we are going to get another Yakitate! Japan or Shokugeki no Souma?

Honestly, I’m pretty sure that Tsumugi, Kouhei and Kotori are not going to be pulling any crazy stunts or entering into any competitions but who knows? This doesn’t mean 100% that they won’t, but this is a slice of life anime.

Promotional Videos / PV


After the loss of his wife, Kouhei Inuzuka, a high school teacher, lives with his daughter Tsumugi. Together at the dining table, they are joined by accident by his student, Kotori Iida. She joins in as well to make it three people with their meals as this show will talk about cooking. It takes a look at the everyday lives and food that people enjoy together with their loved ones.

Three Episode Impression

The name says it all with Amaama to Inazuma since this anime truly is nothing else than sweet. It offers an interesting look at family life in a rare portrayal of single parenthood while making sure to show the bond between the characters. The relationship between father and daughter reminds of Usagi Drop or even a more down-to-earth version of Barakamon. The attention to small details adds nice touches, for example in the form of Tsumugi’s childish drawings becoming part of the end credits. To enjoy Amaama to Inazuma you should not only be a fan of slow-paced Slice of Life stories, but also be interested in cooking or at least able to watch long scenes of characters preparing dinner without getting bored. If that is the case, then you should definitely give this show a try.
