Let’s make one thing clear: there is nothing wrong with this series. It’s pithy enough to be relaxing, it’s got a fun-loving character, and it brings the anime fan and foodie communities together. At least I hope it does.
Obviously I recommend the series (I recommend crap that I hate too, so long as I’m talking about it). Hell, I’d recommend the live action drama for all of a handful of episodes I’ve seen of it. It’s entertaining. Unfortunately, I do have one bias that keeps me from enjoying this popular short feature to its fullest.
Sorry, fans. I don’t drink.
