1. Light-hearted but watchable [Rating: 7/10]
The main thing I got out of this drama was the catchy theme single "Sayonara" by Orange Range. Otherwise Akane Teppan Girl is perfectly watchable for the tight interaction between the likeable and campy characters.

Yes, treatment of the regional delicacies was shallow and they could have given a little more depth to the ingredients and "terroir" rather than have Akane drive somewhere far, "fight" and then return to Tokyo.

The final episode was not entirely satisfying and I felt the producers rushed the plot to squeeze it into 9 chapters. However, when it finally finished I wanted to see more of Akane and Shinta-san and their road trips.

The story revolves around Akane. A young girl who runs a family restaurant after her mother dies her father left her alone and has been missing for 1 year. Akane has amazing ability at teppan style cooking and is constantly challenged by a strange rival while looking for her father she travels Japan facing lots of cooking battles along the way.

It's fun. I would not call it great but I enjoyed it and that is the most important thing right? I hope you watch it and give it a chance too.

hmm. barely saw the first few minutes of the first episode.

but. im quite trusting to shows with maki in it.
i mean, afterall, she DID do a good job in Kurosagi and esp, Nobuta Wo Produce.

i tink its going to be a good watch. considering recently im into jap food as well. like.. yakitate japan, antique cake store. hahaha. recently watching FOOD!

so. this show is making my taste buds salivate, so i tink its GOOD!

4. weak plot but fun anyway [Rating: 8/10]
Horikita Maki was so cute in this. It is a little silly but really fun. I found the story line to be a bit inconsistent and unbelievable but it was still enjoyable. Really it is an excuse to see yummy food and a cute actress.

The only person I liked in this drama was the glasses guy played by Tsukamoto Takashi. Akane's character seemed a little over the top and her acting didn't seem to suit it very well especially in those parts of the episode where Akane was fired up when cooking. She seemed to hold back a lot whereas other actors/actresses who have played anime-like characters do it pretty well.

The story was very episodic and quite slow-paced. I found myself nodding off to sleep while watching it. The food battles at the end were predictable and weren't even that interesting to watch. (ie Shota no Sushi was predictable, but it was highly entertaining). The cutest part of the drama was the romance factor, but even that didn't have as much chemistry as I would have liked to see. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this drama for anyone unless they're die hard fans of either the main actor or actress.

Everybody in Japan told me not to watch this. This is shit and it sucks. It's true that it is sometimes chou kimoi, but it's kawaii! After I watched the first episode I wanted to stop but....I continued and it's very bright and light. Nothing to learn, very light. Nice food, okonomiyaki tabetai!!!! and Akane is cute. I xas happy that the episode format changes at the middle of the dorama because it was getting boring to see them driving far have a teppan duel and go home! oresama fu review.......kansei!

Horrible.... This dorama starts bad and gets worst as the series goes by. If one is looking for some dorama similar to the concept of Teppan Shoujo Akane (but much better than this one) just go watch Sushi Oji... its waaaaaay better than this one.... Teppan Shoujo has one of the worst plot ever... wrong choices on casting (i love Maki~chan... but in this one she's just bleh!) even the ending is just plain simple.... didnt found any good reason for someone to watch this.

Not the best I`ve seen but not at all horrible either. You can`t expect much from this drama to start with epsecially when you have read the manga. It`s been done before..

BUT, still this managed to make me want to watch it sometimes and I eventually ended up seeing the whole thing. Don`t expect something serious, take this with a grain of salt and you`ll enjoy it! ^^

I watched 2 episodes so far. I won't continue. Isn't it embarrassing for any TV Station airing this... It's just outstandingly booooring, has no heart, like "hingekackt und hingeschissen" (german saying). I can't believe Horikita Maki lowered herself to star in such a lame show. Okay, the few unpredictable jokes are somewhat funny, but that's all about it.
6. Comments by gto_girlz83 [Rating: 8/10]
I watched this drama bcoz of Horikita Maki but i bit disspointed with her acting..I think Ueto Aya might be the best for her replacement in making delicious food since Aya always enjoy when she's eating anything..Maki has to put a lot of emotion and great attitude in order to fulfil the best result! But, the food always delicious and make me feel hungry...

Dec 2006: This is another manga based drama with cheesy dialogues and formulaic storyline each week. The food part was alright, maybe because I'm not really a fan of tepanyaki. Theme song was quite nice, and the existence of Maki chan made it tolerable to watch, her acting still abit stiff though. I fast forwarded here and there in order to finish it.
8. Comments by ScrappedShinigami [Rating: 5/10]
I haven't watched much of it yet, just the first 3 eps, but it seems fun enough.
Horita Maki is really adorable in it, this is the first time I've seen her in this type of role, usually she plays the more quieter characters, but in this show she is quite lively and adorable. I am quite intrigued to see how this pans out.

As a light-hearted drama, it's pretty good. Despite its repetitive plot, it had its touching moments... and I liked how the story was always full of hope and energy!
The food was excellent eye-candy, too. (Made me go get okonomiyaki :P)
Maki was really good here. ^_^

Was disappointed in this drama...With Horikita Maki in this show, I expected more...There was a tendency to repeat the same circumstances in each episode...plus the older guy with the beak face was annoying...
11. Comments by xxhiroxx [Rating: 5/10]
The drama started out nice and interesting, but soon got too repetitive for its own good. The same formula for every. single. freaking. episode. made the show a pain to watch half way through the season.
12. Comments by highandmighty_ryuude [Rating: 6/10]
POSITIVE: Perhaps not the greatest jdrama but Maki really saves it. She is brilliant in Teppan and looks stunning, the food they were cooking looked great.

NEGATIVE: so, so...nothing spectacular

The story is pretty much been there done that, the plot is as bare as similar anime and actually quite boring. The acting is ok but not impressive. Watch only if spare time is available.

not one of the best dorama but it's entertaining, funny..and has maki-chan in it!! she's sooooooooooo cute!! ^^ and i like the twin sister to!! like mika-chan very much!! ^^ gyabooooo

I deeply regret buying this drama cuz it's oh so predictable and Horikita Maki is both annoying and unattractive here. Every episode practically same situation as the one b4 it.

Really horrible drama...I have yet to watch a good live action drama about cooking. I thought Lunch No Jyou was not that great, but it's heaven compared to this.
17. Comments by Lady Zhuge [Rating: ?/10]
The drawing cards for me are Takashi and Maki. Unfortunately, the drama itself is quite disappointing and I've struggled to continue watching.
18. Comments by kireiyuhi [Rating: 6/10]
The acting in this drama was pretty terrible. Even Horikita Maki couldn't save it. It did have its good points but overall it was not so great.

I thought it was quite dreadful to watch. The plot wasn't that strong and some parts were overly cheesy. BUT it made me hungry every time.

a bit boring but because maki is in it a little energy left!! i finished this drama about 2 weeks or more cause it was so boring...

i was expecting this to be something like shota no sushi, but it was nowhere near it. there weren't much cooking action at all...

Boring story with pretty much the same thing happening every episode. Only reason to watch this is because of Maki.

Proof that just because they make a drama revolving around food, that doesn't mean it will be good.
