New Anime Alert: Cookin' Idol Ai! Mai! Mine!

Ready to learn how to cook?

The latest from Moon Phase: a new original anime (as far as I can tell) titled Cookin' Idol Ai! Mai! Mine! (should probably be romanized Main, but I wanted to make sure you guys saw it was pronounced like “mine,” not like Main Street). The anime will actually be combined with live-action, and is intended to teach kids to cook.


There aren't a lot of details available on the series yet, but it's going to start airing on March 30 on the NHK, and Moon Phase's anime list claims it will be animated by Studio Deen. The heroine, Main (pronounced “mine”!), will be voiced by Haruka Fukuhara, will also cook the actual dishes for the program. The series will be directed by Hiroshi Watanabe (Law of Ueki, a variety of Slayers movies).


It sounds kinda cute. I wonder what kind of recipes they'll be doing? I've been trying to do a lot more cooking myself lately, so I may check it out, even though I usually avoid these kinds of edutainment things. How about you?

Depends on the recipes - if I can actually learn to make some good stuff easily, I'm all for it - and I might even get the bigger and better half to watch w/me!
