Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well. I know what you are thinking: “3 posts in quick succession?!?! Man, something must really be wrong.” Haha, I am okay… well, as okay as I can possibly be. I just feel like I have not written much this month, so I wanted to write a short post about an anime I found last year but re-visited these past few weeks: Takunomi.
Takunomi follows 20-year-old Michiru Amatsuki who has just moved to Tokyo to start her new job. She moves into a woman-only share house with three other women of varying ages and occupations: Makoto Kiriyama, barista and student; Nao Kiriyama, fashion designer and the older sister of Makoto; and Kae Midorikawa, wedding planner. Together, they will navigate life and have a good laugh with each other over various alcoholic drinks.
Takunomi is an extremely fun anime and is very short. There are only 12 episodes and each episode runs for approximately 12 minutes. Each character has a unique personality and you learn so much about Japanese alcohol. Even if you are not a big alcohol drinker, like me, it is still very interesting to learn about all the different alcohol brands and recipes in Japan. Check out the English trailer below if you want to get a better look at the show!
That is it for this one, and I believe that is it from me for July. I hope you all had a good month, and if not, I wish you all a better August. I wish you all the best and I will see you all in the next blog post.
