What a soothing little show. It is completely zen, from her voice in off to her cooking to her little, pretty apartment and nice songs in the background. I am thinking of rewatching this every time I feel stressed out (it is just an 12-episode length of around 8minutes long each episode, and it is on Youtube! to watch it legally ?)

If you need something relaxing after a long day, just like the FL when she comes home, watch this nice little show. She provides the recipe of every dinner she makes, and the expression on her face when she says おいしい will make you smile instantly.

Surrendering to the Flow of Time

"Today, the time seems to flow at a leisurely pace. Why don't I just surrender myself to that flow?" - Natsuki

The amount of warmth my soul received is illegal. I'm sure that speaks volumes about how much I adore this miniseries. Kitchen For Singles is an 8-episode miniseries that lasts around 9 minutes each. I’m happy to say that this small production exceptionally soothed my heart and lifted my spirits.

This tranquil and harmonious atmosphere pervades throughout the drama. I'm not sure about others, but the vibe made me want to pick up a book and read for hours on end. The music is soft and mellow, at times, it's the sort of music that makes you want to jam to alone in your bedroom. The soft-spoken voice of actress Matsumoto Kiyo is appropriate for the drama. Her voice-over narration, along with the music, is flawlessly infused with everything.

Can we also discuss her kitchen? It's so cluttered, but it gives the kitchen so much character. Her entire apartment is warm and inviting. It really does make me want to move to an apartment myself, and live like Natsuki lol. The culinary aspect of the drama was also well-done. The food looked delightful. And as I expected, there isn't much to the story. Nonetheless, I was captivated by the drama. The whole vibe of it is deserving of a 9/10.

Equal parts comfort and recipes

Let me paint you a picture:

Each day, Natsuki writes in her journal. She tells it (us) about something notable about her day. Her favorite bookstore closing down. Her mom sending her a package. Something small that reminded her of a moment in her childhood. She takes us on a journey as she tells us what that event made her think about. Sometimes, it's something that gives us a peek into her character. Sometimes, it's something larger and rather philosophical.

As she's speaking to us, she's also deliberating her next meal. What fits her mood/energy? What ingredients does she need to finish off? Sometimes she's sharing a favorite recipe. Sometimes she's experimenting. But by the end of it, she's able to move past whatever thought she was stuck on and is ready to move on to the next thing. Cooking is a sort of therapy for her. And it's so clear, that it makes you, as a viewer, feel like perhaps it could be for you too.

Her voice is so soothing. And the entire atmosphere that she creates is rather eclectic grandma-esque, despite her only seemingly to be in her mid 20s. She's not hung up on trends. When at home, she wears off-the-wall patterns and colors - whatever makes her happy. She's got herbs growing out of old tin cans, and an old-school radio playing a new tune every episode. It feels cozy and like coming home - despite my own home feeling nothing like it. It was the perfect drama to put on at the end of a long day.

I wish there was more, but I will definitely be rewatching this. Both for the atmosphere, and the recipes (which are written and subbed in detail at the end of each episode).
