Test Your Anime Knowledge – Anime Quiz 4

Continuing my look at the new winter season of anime as a means to fill this introductory paragraph up before turning to this week’s quiz is Koufuku Graffiti (Gourmet Girl Graffiti). Both Shaft and Mari Okada have had a tough time of it lately. Last year Shaft missed really hard with both of their new series – Nisekoi and Mekaku City Actors – and it was only the continued fascination of the Monogatari franchise that saved them from a completely disastrous year. Mari Okada wrote one of the worst anime of 2014: M3 – Sono Kuroki Hagane. It was so bad, so below her ability, that I almost believe she did it on purpose so she could get a break from writing science fiction anime for awhile. The other series she did the writing for – Selector Infected Wixoss Parts 1 and 2 – was better but still a long ways away from being a “good” anime. This is all preface to say that, for an anime that proudly sold itself as cute girls eating suggestively, Koufuku Graffiti appears to be a return to form of old Shaft quality slice-of-life with Mari Okada providing solid, quality writing. Three episodes in and I’m starting to be cautiously optimistic about this series.

Introductory paragraph filled 😉 , let’s move to this week’s anime quiz.
