It’s been a while since we brought you a surreal Japanese food-related clip, so we were very excited when Serious Eats brought the below video to our attention. The video shows the opening credits for Honey and Clover, a show about art students. We strongly recommend watching it twice: once to admire the very clever ways in which it plays with food and once to puzzle over the theme song’s melancholy lyrics.
