"In the animal kingdom when it comes to feeding time it is a matter of survival of the fittest. In Ben-To the oddball cult classic 2011 anime series the same is true in the grocery store. Half price bento are the prize and the wars waged over these discounted delights takes center stage in what is arguably one of the most strangest premises for an anime series ever. In spite of its bizarre concept Ben-To winds up being one of the best slice-of-life series in recent memory."
