Murasaki Wakako is a 26-year-old OL that loves nothing more than delicious food and drink. Wakako's favorite thing to do for relaxation is to go off by herself after work and go to various places to eat and drink, even if she's never been there before. The moment Wakako is able to taste the pairing between the food she wants to eat and the perfect accompanying drink, the happy sound of "Pshuuu" leaves her lips. Now, then. Where shall we drink tonight?

This review is done after watching the first 6 episodes. It's about sake/beer and food, clear and simple. At about 2 minutes per episode, this is not the series that you go to for plot or character development. You do get some snippets of the main character's daily life, mainly related to her workplace. Working ladies would especially be able to relate. For foodies, you'll appreciate how the dishes are animated, they look quite mouth watering. Don't get thrown off by how the main character is animated, I think they intentionally made her look comical. I'm a foodie, so I love these short episodes that get straight to the point. Fu-pshuuuuu....
It reminds me of the korean drama "Lets eat". I think the opening credits can be apart of the episode so that it doesn't take away from the two minutes. Its ok. It has the slow pace that I enjoy in anime.
Story To be honest, this show doesn't really have a plot per say. It's simply about the main character, Wakako, eating and drinking, talking about food pairings, and so forth. We do see some snippets of Wakako's work-life. If this was a full length episode series then it would probably be boring, but since the episodes are only 2 minutes long (or 1 and 1/2 minutes if you don't count the opening) then this type of set-up works. It helps that the episodes are well paced. Animation Some people may get turned off by the way Wakako's drawn, but I think it adds to her charm and helps her stand out. Also, I love the way food looks in this series. It's so beautiful and delicious looking that just looking at the food in this series makes me hungry. Sound While the opening song isn't anything special, it is pleasent, somewhat catchy, and fits the tone of the series. The same can be said about the background music. Characters Wakako doesn't get alot of character development, but since the episodes in this series only last 2 minutes long I didn't expect much character development anyways. What she lacks in character development, Wakako makes up for it by being likable and relatable. It helps that we can see some snippets of her work-life as well as see some of her personality quirks in the way she talks about food. Overall This series isn't anything amazing, but it is enjoyable for what it is. If you are looking for a "bite-sized snack" to fullfill your anime craving, then you may want to check out this series.
