Today’s Menu for Emiya Family

Crunchyroll recently releasedย Today’s Menu for Emiya Family, a cooking spin to the normally action-chargedย Fate/Stay Nightย anime series. Each episode is shorter than others, clocking in at a little over 12 minutes. Shiro Emiya, our protagonist, shops and cooks for the household. As this is a spin-off, he interacts with characters that are normally viewed as enemies in the main plot line with hilarious and intriguing results. I also like the portrayal of a young man who is cooking for the rest of the household, all of whom are women. Everyone cooks! Everyone eats! Everyone wins!

This has been a fairly popular series to show at my library’s ani-mazing anime programs due to how quick the episodes are. However be warned when showing this without snacks or having lunch yourself. Just be aware that if you laugh or discuss about the characters in relation toย Fate/Stay Night, unless the attendees have seen it, it would be best not to bring it up and keep it light.
