First Impressions: Rokuhoudou Yotsuiro Biyori

It seems that people misunderstood this show. Anyone who looked at the main visual thinking it would be another fujoshi-bait when in fact it’s a based on a seinen manga. I am quite surprised even an anime featuring men can be this enjoyable.

I, too, was hesitant to watch it because of how it looks. After three episodes, it’s actually more than that. Episodes 1 and 2 features the comfy atmosphere of what the cafe can offer to its customers. They show their clients and how they help each other in their daily lives. You get to feel the gist of what they do.

It has an Isekai Shokudou-esque way of storytelling but that changes a bit on Episode 3. You get to know the history of the cafe led by Sui. Even as early as what it has aired, it’s giving a glimpse to Sui’s conflict.

Having this subplot may change the show’s atmosphere yet it was able to deliver with elegance. When you’re looking for an Iyashikei anime this season, you should watch this.

  1. I have definitely been pleasantly surprised by this. I really enjoyed the relaxing feeling of the first episode but I don’t know that I’d have made a whole season of the anime if that was all it was. The direction it seems to be going as of episode 3 is interesting and I’m really having a great time watching this so far. Hopefully it continues to deliver as it gets more into this plot.
