Osake wa Fuufu ni Natte kara [Review]
“Chisato Mizusawa is a calm and collected assistant office manager who apparently dislikes drinking alcohol. But she actually likes it and has a secret side to her that emerges only when drunk: her cute persona, which she only reveals to her husband, the bartender Sora. Each day when Chisato comes home, Sora takes care of his beloved wife, providing her with a good meal and a fresh drink. These drinks include Plum Splet, Irish Coffee, Orange Breeze, and many more tasty concoctions that she eagerly gulps down. But as much as she likes alcohol, she loves her kindhearted husband more. Together, they share a life that is filled with happiness—and the more-than-occasional cocktail.” -MAL Rewrite
Osake wa Fuufu ni Natte kara had me pretty interested not only with the artwork but also the emotional story that led Chisato to meet Sora.
Artwork & Animation:
The artwork comes off as a little plain, it has a nice variety of colors but not enough shading to make the characters pop. The personified fruits and drinks were both funny and terrifying, still don’t quite know how to feel about them.
While there aren’t that many characters in the story besides Chisato, Sora, and five other side characters. There is still a good amount of character development for Chisato. From the backstory about meeting Sora and her interactions with her coworkers, Chisato becomes a kinder and independent woman. Though the change is very subtle, I still appreciate the development for such a short anime.
Sound (OST & Voice Acting):
I’m confused on why the ending song is actually the ending song for this anime. Sounds it like belongs in a Shounen anime involving ninjas, orange jumpsuits, and Godzilla-sized foxes. I loved the bar tune that played when the show would explain the recipe for the featured drink. And the fun plucky strings that would play when Chisato would interact with her co-workers is a springy tune as well!
I enjoyed the recipes that were provided in the show, as a drinker myself, it’s nice to try new things!
Overall: Score 8
With a semi-structured backstory, Osake wa Fuufu ni Natte Kara, was both entertaining and educational with recipes for alcoholic drinks. A story about a diligent office worker who’s cute side is unleashed when she takes a sip of her favorite drinks made for an entertaining show.
Best Girl: Chisato Mizusawa
Easy choice, the drunk side of Chisato is by far one of the cutest thing I have ever seen.
