In the anime "Food Wars" the character nicknamed "Nikumi" is the heir to a famous ranch that produces the priceless A5 grade wagyu beef known worldwide as the highest standard possible.
This over the top sexy character speaks to the foodies in us all that dream of that faraway A5 life we all long for... that melt in your mouth goodness exclusive to a handful of people who are so fortunate.
This one is for that anime fan that is as obsessed with the plot and the art as the food that they feature in it. Relatively recent titles include "Space Dandy", "One Piece", "Toriko!", "Food Wars" obviously but also "Restaurant To Another World". Even dramas are getting into it like "Wakakozake", "Samurai Gourmet" and "Midnight Diner", many of which can be found on Crunchyroll or Netflix.
But the effect of mouthwatering food, even fictional and animated food, has been a mainstay in anime culture for years. You might mentally recall the food from some of your favorite titles and wonder if that's what made you so hungry!
