Kouhei Inuzuka is a teacher who has been caring for his little daughter on his own since his wife’s death. He’s no good at cooking, so he and his daughter Tsumugi have been eating packaged meals from the convenience store. A series of events lead him one evening to a restaurant run by the mother of one of his students, Kotori. Her mother isn’t there, but Kotori does her best to feed them both. It turns out Kotori is often alone since her parents are divorced and her mother is frequently not around. The three of them begin to meet and cook tasty food together. (Source: MangaHelpers)



Amaama to Inazuma is a delightful Slice of Life anime. I really like Slice of Life anime because they are so realistic and somehow pure. This tells a story of a father and his 5 year old daughter. It shows the struggle of a single parent. It also shows the love the main character holds for his child. Tsumugi is the cutest kid ever. The anime was every show in terms of story and event. However you wont be able to stop watching because of how adorable Tsumugi is. Her character was the highlight of the anime.

Overall Rate: 7/10
