294th G-View Pan de Peace

Here is quick and easy show to review. Pan de Peace.

Genres: Comedy, Slice of Life

Themes: School, Bread, Baking.

Number of episodes: 13 (3 minutes each)

G-Rating: 7/10

Plot Summary: A show about cute girls doing and baking cute things.

That is all there is to this show. When not baking and eating different varieties of bread the Bread Club girls do standard Girls Club stuff like slumber parties, chilling out, going to the beach and showing off their assets, being cute and occasionally snuggling…HARD. Normally this would be good if there were more to it than that, such as an education about how to bake bread or maybe the history of bread and other cool stuff about the girls as characters. Something like Koufuku Graffiti except not as softcore food porn-esque. Unfortunately the show covers the bare minimum of what makes Girls Club shows good to fans who enjoy that subgenre of Slice of Life. However, there is a reasonable explanation as to why PdP did not get to show off as much-the shows are only three minutes long. Not enough time to showcase all Pan de Peace can be. It is the same situation as Kuma Miko, missed potential. Now some Girls Club shows managed to pull off great things with in just 3 minutes per episodes like Morita-san wa Mukuchi and InuNeko. However, the reason it worked on those shows was because their premises were simple enough to be told in three minutes. Not so with PdP. Maybe it could have gone better if it were like Wakaba*Girl or later seasons of Miss Monochrome. Whatever the case the short time did not PdP any favors. Still, what we did get was alright.

Please go out with me

The shipping material is strong and we got some good ships out of this one but takes a while to go all-out after the first three episodes.

Nao's milk-stache

Best girl is Noa, aka Pink Chino.

Second place go to Fuyumi and the eventual fifth member of the Bread Club (Hint: Blonde), unless we also count the other pink haired which makes the fifth member the sixth I guess. Anyway, #6 rules because thanks to her the show got a much needed boost that carried the show as best as as it could till its finale. The megane girl is a decent levelheaded members of the group and the brunette leader spends most of her time trying to be relevant. And people used to say Yuru Yuri’s Akari was a bland character without the tormenting…PFFFT!

Overall Pan de Peace is an decent but ultimately bare bones Girls Club show with missed potential. It looks really good and the girls all fit the cute (and some sexy) quota but the brunette was lacking and there was little else other than the basics. Even Wakaba Girl had more to work with than this. At least the yuri shipping material was strong whenever it was present. Still recommended for Girls Club aficionados, just do not expect much.

    It was a cute show, the major flaw was it was so short. I hate getting into a show just to have it be over as soon as it started. Other than that, loved it.

    Yea pretty much in agreement. I do think it’s biggest flaw as Umedyn said is it was too short. If it had been longer, it could have been akin to Koufuku. But for what it did give it was decent.

  5. Eh, I saw the first episode and liked it.

    All I was expecting was bread and lesbians in 3 minutes each week, and it seems like I got that. So that’s good enough for me. I don’t expect another Koufuku Graffiti (which I still need to watch btw) anyway.

    While this is a cute show and meets expectations, I do agree that this show is too short and would have been better if it’s longer.

    But yes, Noa is cute.

    Good review and I agree that three minutes was too short. Pan de Peace really could have gotten more mileage if it was as long as Wakaba Girl. I also agree that the shipping potential was high despite its short length.

    From my view, Minami (main girl) didn’t get much focus. I guess that’s what happens when you’re a POV character in such a short show.
