tfw your hair turns into raw nori
tfw the panda guy is someone we know
tfw you lose, but in defeat, transcend the human condition 🐾
tfw you try to make a croissant dough with as many layers as a tart dough
tfw totally oblivious to how much your preserved loquat roommate is into you
tfw your conversation with your loquat roommate did *not* go well 😭
y'all it's almost over. i'm about to start episode 69 (nice)…
i ended up watching the first episode by accident, alone, a few months after starting HRT, in the corner of a mostly empty viewing hall at an anime con at night, wearing a witch-print skirt and an acute feeling of combined dysphoria and social anxiety.
i couldn't sleep and i didn't want to go back to my hotel. just happened to wander into the room where the show being screened was about a bunch of people making bread. lucky i did…
because that's exactly what i needed that night.
been watching it in short bursts ever since.
objectively, it's maybe not a great anime. some of the parodies and puns are obscure to the point of obtuse, the plots are predictable even for a parody of the shonen genre, and some (not all) of the bread stuff is nonsense. also, it's really, really long.
but, it's far from problematic, it's chill, it has heart and i like it, and i'll fucking fight anyone for Yakitate Ja-pan!!
now let's land this!
here we go.
tfw the whole "perfect bread" thing may have been a metaphor
tfw you got pretty invested in it anyway
tfw… that was it.
thanks for watching this with me. 🍞
@shoofle honestly if you stopped watching at the end of the first arc i don't blame you, or the second. the third arc's a slog in parts.
@VyrCossont is distantly recall having watched all of this series when I was in high school, and yet not once have I actually remembered anything in any of these screenshots.
@fluxom_alt the show is so long, and has so many brief weird scenes that i've been cherrypicking from, that you shouldn't be surprised
@jaycie i started somewhere in the first arc on my personal instance with https://princess.industries/notice/9fe6hSfOFmb3RBagKG (you may need to search the URL to get your instance to load it, because Pleroma?) but, uh, more individually-out-of-context screencaps probably won't help 😅
@webweaver these are just routine occurrences on Yakitate Ja-Pan!!, arguably the world's best anime about baking bread
here's an article abt it https://coughingx2.wordpress.com/2018/12/17/pan-de-peace-was-a-show-about-bread/ and you can actually download it from here https://lastsubs.neocities.org/
i wasn't the gay communist who made it but i'm super proud of them
@VyrCossont I was tempted to say at least it'd be easy to take care of, but then I thought of the constant misting required.
Still, handy for snacking, assuming it regrows quickly. ^_^
Handing some to someone special.. would that be romantic, disturbing, or both?
@VyrCossont I think I've noticed it on iTunes as looking interesting, but sadly, haven't seen it yet.
sometimes a family is an oblivious stern lesbian software engineer dad, a hotheaded dragon maid mom, and an adopted dragon daughter
sometimes there's what Ash said, and the manga's worse
