Chef: Mitsuboshi no Kyushoku 4-10! the end. Chef Mitsuko decides to open her own restaurant/food stall after she learns that her former boss is preventing her from getting hired anywhere else. She also continues to work at the school's lunches, too. Her character's energy and passion are fun to watch. The conflict between Mitsuko and Araki in episode 7 was pretty interesting as Araki's food truck seems to defeat Mitsuko's food stall for much of the episode. The show was one of the most uplifting shows I've seen in a while. Mitsuko and the other school lunch workers are a fun group, and they are able to defeat all the problems that come their way. ~10/10 rating~ would watch again. I enjoyed the way she dances to her own tune while the other school workers did their morning exercises, and how she interacted with the soccer kids.

Chihayafuru: Shimo no Ku jmovie! starts out with Chihaya and Taichi going to see Arata to find out why he quit karuta. Taichi is an awesome, nice guy. I do enjoy hopelessly rooting him on. The movie follows Chihaya as she obsesses over the queen, and the inevitable match. Shinobu appears more likable in the movie versus the anime. ~9/10 rating~ for highly engaging movie about a card game I have no desire to play. And for near-perfect casting. There will be another movie next year. The manga is still incomplete, so I look forward to more.

Ie Uru Onna 1-10! the end. This jdrama is a fun, episodic show about a female real estate agent, Machi Sangenya, who can sell any home. Her robotic and over-the-top, go-getter personality makes her appear cold to her coworkers, but she consistently helps her clients buy and sell homes. ~7/10 rating~ for a light-hearted drama with quirky characters. Yeah, I'm never going to afford a house in Tokyo.

Chef: Mitsuboshi no Kyushoku 1-3! jdrama. is about an arrogant, 3-star, female chef who is fired after the restaurant owner frames her for food poisoning. She isn't able to find a new job until a reality tv producer asks her to make school lunch more appetizing for children. It's fun to see the different challenges she faces as she deals with her pride, the school restrictions, and the children.
