So I have watched all of Yakitate Japan, and read 60 chapters (I believe all that is available?) of Addicted to Curry. HOLY **** these series make me hungry. Has anyone else seen them? Or knows of similar series? Also, has anyone ever tried some of the recipes available in them? I think making bread would be too difficult for me, but some of the curry recipes seem pretty easy and would make some nice meals for a post-college guy like me.

By the way, both series are highly recommended. Yakitate Japan is aimed more at a younger (or more general) audience, while Addicted to Curry has some violence, swearing, and nudity. Also, Yakitate Japan is a pretty long series; I think there are three seasons of it. Stick with it; the third season ends up being REALLY good.

Wow, you've got an awesome writing style.! I really dig the narrator's back story, humor, sarcasm, and the plethora of pop culture references. Altogether a refreshingly different RotR journal (not that I don't like the more traditional ones, mind you).

Dual parallel trouble adventures has a food subtext to it, and in the NA release they put the recipes on the liner notes. I don't think there is that many food series out there though, Iron Wok Jan is all I can think of.

Fighting Foodons! I only saw a few episodes of the 4kids dub, but wow was that awful.

Bartender was an incredibly boring series about a variety of alcoholic drinks.

Yakitate Japan was on youtube when I watched it. No idea if it still is; it's been almost two years since then. I believe that Addicted to Curry is just a manga, and it is still being released.

That's too bad! If they could make a good series about making bread, you'd think one about alcohol would be really good too :-/

Bartender is supposed to be really good as well. Mmmmmmm wine.

Creamy Mami was the first food oriented anime. Her parents owned an ice cream shop. Pita-ten is a hentai anime based off a hentai game, but it's set in a restaurant (one guy waiter and 7 or so horny waitresses.)

LOL!

I sure as **** hope that isn't a hentai! I think I know what show (hentai?) to which catwho is referring. I cannot remember the name, though, but I'm pretty sure my buddy bought a copy of it at Otakon. I don't seem to remember it being about food, though... the restaurant was sorta just the backdrop for, ah, other things.

Also, I looked up the wiki entry for Creamy Mami and it didn't sound anything like a food-based anime; seems like magical girl/idol through and through. Food and ice cream are not mentioned anywhere in the entry. I mean, I guess it's possible they describe the food in depth in the episodes, but the plot doesn't mention it? You'd think there'd be a passing mention of how each episode teaches you to make an awesome chocolate sundae or something :-P
