Konnichiwa yet again, my chilli friends. It’s thursday and, while I’ve been providing seasonal blog updates as always, it’s been some time since I’ve given you a real “inedible” post.
From my greeting alone, I’m sure that you can all guess what this one’s going to be about. But, before I go right into it, I just want to say that I don’t hate my own language’s media.
I loved Lord of the Rings (both the film and books), eagerly await the appearance of the Great Lakes Avengers in Marvel’s cinematic universe and never fail to catch a christmas Doctor Who with my relatives. Heck, I even played for my local quidditch team for a few years, before they decided to reject the Harry Potter franchise and call themselves a “real sport”.
I’m a well-rounded nerd, with a particular interest in food, culture and mythology, yet most of the shows that I’ve recommended have been japanese. Not because I necessarily prefer them, but because they tend to be more relevant to my ever-hungry audience.
Outside of iZombie, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a british or american series that combined a focus on food with the dramatic stakes of something like Food Wars, Ben-To or Yakitatte Japan. Or the cute, homely feel of any of the four shows that I mentioned last time.
Japan just seems to make more out of their food shows but that’s not actually what today’s anime is.
No, this time I want to show you a spy drama called “Release the Spyce”.
