Wakakozake – A short review for a short, little anime.


The Anime, Wakakozake is a short fun slice of life anime. Each episode is about 2 minutes each. It is available on Crunchyroll.

Do remember to check out my all time favourite article on Fumetsu no Anata e Review, or my all time best write up on the netflix show Scissor Seven review: A bloody Funny Show. Or even my latest writeup on Blue Period.

In this anime, the first thing that caught my attention is the theme song. It’s catchy, upbeat, and it reminds me a lot like those old British comedies with their unforgettable tunes. And with this anime, because it’s short and sweet, you listen to it in every episode.


Coming to the story in the anime, we as the audience, would walk the streets of Tokyo (if I’m not mistaken) with the protagonist, who is a 26-year-old office worker, Wakako Murasaki – a lover of food and drink. She takes us to different food joints in every episode, exploring the delicious food that the streets can provide. I guess after a long day at work, there is not a better feeling than finding a place to relax with good food and drink.

If I were to also describe it, I would say it’s like a short food blog where she has an internal conversation within herself describing the food and the many things that have to do with life. She’s never accompanied by co-workers or friends as for her that would ruin the experience and I honestly agree with Wakako. The choice of being able to go alone and enjoy your food and drink is a feeling like no other. Sometimes, No company is the Best company.

Wakako is a true foodie. She savours every bite and actually plans out how each bite goes together. Even her choice of drink would complement the meal perfectly and enhance the taste and flavour of the food. But most importantly, that time she spent with herself, it’s like she has found her Zen. As Wakako finds that perfect fit of the combination of food and drink, the cheerful sound of “Pshuuu” or a version of it comes out of her lips and that is the perfect expression, to be honest.


As you might have guessed, the anime art is also complementing the storyline. The character of Wakako is funny and cute and calm as the story itself. She lacked eyebrows and has oval-shaped head and eyes. The reactions she makes, however, are so good and goofy that it just makes it that much better. The background also is quite nice and even the food was also well described. Overall, Wakakozake is that fun little diversion from the regular lengthy anime series. It requires no detailed character development nor complex and complicated storyline, but just a good storytelling about a foodie. I also recommend, “I can’t Understand what my husband is saying”, which is also available on Crunchyroll and which was my first every anime review on Neotakus.com .……………………………………………….Now I’m in the mood for some beer and fried chicken.
