[Takunomi] Episode 12 impewssions [Drinking at Home]

Episode 12
"Asahi Super Dry"

I'm still salty over the fact that not a single Takunomi girl got into the Seasonal Salt Best girl knockout round.
Edit: Of course they cap it off with the a nice beer scene. Comes a full circle. I love all our idiots for this show. This show without a doubt takes the cake for most relateable especially with Makoto's job search. Nao has to be my spirit animal. Best grill knows no limits.
And we got a shipping scene!?!?

Well, considering how few people watched this series, it doesn't exactly come as a surprise, though I agree that at least Nao would've deserved a bit more recognition.

Not a single girl from Gakuen Babysitters made it either, but a cardboard character like Koizumi did. Like many have said already it's just a popularity contest

≫Nao has to be my spirit animal
A beer cat or a drunk cat? Something like that?

Overall a cute series about cute 20-somethings drinking booze.
Seeing Makoto absent mindedly forget the contents of her meeting with her seniors, I can see how she and Nao are sisters. They both have the same air-headedness.
Maybe I'll go pick up the manga for fun. Does anybody know if the series follows the manga, or does it randomly pick chapters to adapt, considering its episodic and commercial nature?

Not gonna lie, when I saw the title for the episode, this was the first thing that popped into my mind.

This was a great 11 minute show! Perfect amount of cute girls and fun drinks/drink food combos to try! I love these girls and I'm really satisfied and happy that I watched this series. Really pleasing stuff, every episode made me feel comforted and slightly better about my day!

You know, the thing i am gonna miss the most about this series is actually the ED...

same. at least it's on spotify!

Ya it was pretty good. However i might be in the only boat that will miss the OP the most lol

Nice ending to a cute show, would watch more!
Kae besto <3

Didn't Nao change her tune about her work ? I thought earlier in the series she said she hated it...
Glad it's all over though - a series long booze commercial isn't that interesting, although the proper story sections (the bits that weren't around drink and food) was quite good. The animation was okay too, and the characters, whilst probably being chronic alcoholics ,, were quite fun too.

That's the Japanese salaryman worklife for you. To survive the 80 hour work week, you must completely, absolutely, utterly LOVE what you're doing 200%. Any less and you'll end up in a mental asylum.
I found that out the hard way, working at a design firm as an intern with an option to upgrade to being a full employee after three months. After one month, I decided "fuck this shit" and went back to my country to seek employment. Best decision in my life, though I still miss my regular weekly trips to Akihabara. lol

There's just something amusing about how the VAs say, "Super Dry." I suppose the series wouldn't be complete without an episode on this stalwart of Japanese Beers.
It was a fun little series and I'm hoping this continues the trend of anime about Cute Women Getting Drunk Cutely. Next season I think the closest is probably Wotaku.
Also Kae was totally rocking that business suit.

I'm going to miss starting my saturday mornings with the chibi girls disclaimer that all of them are in the legal drinking age.
Most of all will miss Nao's rants about alcohol and her cat faces, along with Kae and her "attributes" (damn she looked really nice in a suit)

It's been a neat little series. Even if you take the beer segments out, you're still left with a lighthearted comedy about the life of young working adults. It's a pretty decent way to spend 10 minutes of your time.
\Sexy Dynamite Kae!/

I want some of that Chairwoman...she's definitely best wife material.
Nice comfy series, 12 minutes is a nice length as well

My local beer shops had Kirin and Sapporo but I couldn't find any Asahi :(
Really going to miss drinking and watching this every Saturday morning! Now I'm just going to have to daydrink without an excuse...

Asahi Super Dry is a relatively bland adjunct lager, popular for its solid marketing and inoffensive character. It's worth trying (in the sense that most beer is worth trying), but you aren't missing much.

I know I'm not missing much - I don't really like lagers anyway - but I wanted to drink it with the final episode.

This was really fun series to watch. Characters were cute and opening and ending songs were great.

Well this was a nice fun little show, enjoyed my time with it.

And there goes the most relatable show of the season.
This wasn't exactly an amazing show, but it was perfectly enjoyable for what it was. We need more shows about cute adult women in anime.

Yeah wtf. Japan sure is in a completely different world from where I live.
