Th second clip is MUCH better than the first. I guess it was lost to me without speaking Japanese, but the second clip makes the point clear.

Looks like a ridiculous premise and well animated action.

Yes, I know that anime is never very realistic, but the premise is so ridiculous that i'm not sure if i'll be able to get around it. Plus it looks as if it will depend on fan-service crutches.

The story revolves around a poor high school student named Yō Satō (Hiro Shimono). Satō goes to the supermarket one day and discovers a bentō (boxed meal) on sale at half price. Just as he reaches to grab it, he ends up on the floor unconscious. Satō has just entered the fierce, no-holds-barred "supermarket survival battle"for half-price bentō.


...okay. The only way I'm going to watch this show is if the following happens:
1. They will put rockets on shopping carts and have an in-store, super, ultra NASCAR-esque race to the checkout line.

2. There will be a food fight of epic proportions that invoke chainsaws, machine guns, and/or magical beam-things everywhere.

3. The mascot will be a talking, sushi-chef master octopus who's a deadpan snarker and likes to ridicule all of the characters.

4. The "blue haired" girl is the classic Yamato Nadeshiko (which is my favorite anime girl cliche since the Badass Damsel).

If none of these events take place or at least one, then I'm not even going to bother.

*Please note that I'm not being completely serious*
