Ye Jiayao finds herself back in time in the body of Ye Jinxuan. After many twists, she thought that she would finally be able to lead a simple life and achieve her dream of opening the best restaurant in Huai Song. However, there are villains constantly trying to bring her down.
This story was amazing, people who loves anime about the food, and like historical love stories, definitely should watch this anime :) But the in the ending I wanted to see more, so I hope so there will be second season. :) So I hope so you will wachw this one, good luck ;)
This donghua (anime) at first seemed to be very similar to Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma, with much of the plot revolving around the dishes that the main character makes and slightly toned down cut scenes of the characters being transported to some surreal place upon taking a bite. However, the setting being in ancient China and the transmigration elements add another layer to the show that makes the plot more interesting. Apparently, the donghua is based off of a novel, and while I have not read the original work, it seems from watching the show that the characters and plot development were very rushed and haphazardly put together. I would imagine that this is a byproduct of the transition from novel to anime, but it left me feeling like it could have been so much more. All in all, I was still very entertained by the characters and humor (and I ended up watching the entire show in one night).
Honestly, this is such a light-hearted and cute anime but with a good romance plotline. The ending was based on having a season 2 so it didn't feel as fulfilling of an end as it should. It is super cute and funny (not to mention how hot they made guy MC). I would definitely recommend especially if you are trying to heal from a dark or sad anime :)
