Food in anime is very beautiful, idealized, in fact. Watching the characters eat makes me hungry.
Tea time shown in Gachaman Crowds:
So, in no particular order, here are 10 random awesome GIFs of food from anime. Shows that I personally recommend will have a star like this ☆ next to them.
1) Omurice (omelette+rice dish) from The Garden of Words (a movie that I found out about that looks great)
2) Dessert with jiggly puddling from Polar Bear’s Cafe (which I just now learned about from finding this gif)
3) Some sort of egg-rice awesomeness from Blue Exorcist (☆)
4) Cooking meat from The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (which I’ve been meaning to watch)
5) Crab Cooking from Free! Iwatobi Swim Club (☆)
6) Cake and Tea from Watamote (☆)
7) Making a tart from Dream-Colored Pastry Chef (which seems to be about baking…?)
8) Bento from Seitokai Yakuindomo (never heard of this one before, it seems like a typical harem genre anime)
9) Parfait from To Love-Ru (also new to me)
10) This weird thing + mushrooms from Oregairu (learning about so many new anime shows today!)
Honorable Mention: Poking open an egg yolk from Black Butler (☆)
