Sweetness & Lightning

Sep 24, 2016

This anime is ok, but basically nothing at all happens and there is no plot. So it's just 12 episodes of cute kid and clumsy dad who regularly get together with a shy highschool student to learn how to cook different dishes - every episode ends with them eating the dish they cooked and looking ecstatic because of how they managed to make it so tasty and delicious. That's all there is to it.

Tsumugi-chan, the kid, is really cute but that isn't obviously enough. Tsumugi's dad and Kotori-chan, the student whose mother owns the restaurant where they meet up to try out their cooking skills are likeable enough characters - be that as it may, there is no development.

You might enjoy it if you're in the mood to switch off your mind and watch something extremely light, carefree and undemanding revolving around the antics of a little girl and her overflowing-with-good-will father.

Yeah, don't listen to this person's review, people generally already know if they like or don't like slice-of-life anime. We don't need someone who doesn't know how to appreciate them writing something up about it. This anime is really good. Your type of expectations for character development are flawed if you did not see any in this anime. Over the time span of the anime, there was ample development for normal human beings. Slice-of-life anime are much more real to life, as the genre entails, so don't expect some crazy personality swings or power-ups or whatever your misplaced expectations are. Relax and enjoy it, increase your taste in anime beyond romance and violent types that make up most of the market.

Ummm... I suggest you google the definition of slice-of-life anime?? There's supposed to be no development. It's kinda your own fault if you expected something "to happen" or some sort of character or story development..
