Takunomi's basically a quarter-hour slice-of-life comedy featuring four twenty-something women engaging in drinking Japanese-brand alcohol and having snacks in their apartment building following their typical days working or being in college. Each episode features the girls explaining some facts involving alcohol they will sample in that episode before sampling it in various ways with some snacks. Humor for the series largely comes from the personalities of the girls and their behaviors while drunk. I see some have accused Takunomi of being an animated advertisement for alcohol in the same vain that Dagashi Kashi is with Japanese name brand dagashi. But I suppose depending on what interest you have in alcohol or seeing a slice-of-life comedy with young anime women in their 20s, your mileage is likely to vary with Takunomi.

Unevaluated Stretch [series:3487#628]
(Two episodes watched):

Well, here's a show which contains some genuine laughs, even if at times it was unclear if it was an anime or a commercial for Ebisu beer. The characters seem like fun as well, as episode one is largely about getting to know them and their inevitable quirks. They have a clever, realistic feel to them--like when two of Michiru's new friends feel a sense of deja-vu about her enthusiastic, go-get-'em attitude towards her new job. I doubt if there will be much of a plot, but that's OK since episodes are only twelve or so minutes long and, again, contain some laughs. So far, so good. Episode two, however, didn't seem quite as much fun; more food and fashion than laughs. This show is definitely part of the genre which combines cooking (and drink making) tips with a little story.
