First Impressions: Yotsuiro Biyori

Hey, this anime’s got a cat in it! Perfect premier! 10/10! I will watch this series every day until I die!

hello please stop staring at me

I don’t know what it was about the summary or the poster or what, but for some reason I thought this was going to be a short. It isn’t. I also thought based on the poster that it’d be shojo, josei, or, God forbid, BL and apparently it’s neither? It’s seinen. A seinen series about four good-lookin’ dudes running a restaurant. I don’t know why it wouldn’t be, but I guess I always associate seinen with more plot-driven fare. Obviously, grown men can like iyashikei, too. That shouldn’t surprise me. I mean, I’m a grown man and I like iyashikei. And yet, for some reason, it does. I suppose we all have our biases we need to overcome.

i don’t have an opinion yet but the kitten approves

There have been a lot of cooking anime lately. Is it just because it’s popular, or is this yet another plot to somehow get the youth of Japan to breed? The world may never know.

What parent would be charmed by some strange man just lifting their child out of his stroller without warning? The audience knows he’s harmless, but the mom doesn’t. Unless he’s not a strange man, which I suppose is possible.

This episode was extremely okay. I didn’t expect the megane to be an airhead or the big guy to be the barista, but other than that the characters all seem pretty archetypal. The whole thing was fine, but not particularly engaging. I was very slightly bored throughout and I’m not going to continue it. However, if you’re looking for a nice iyashikei with absolutely nothing wrong with it, this one will serve you perfectly adequately.
