Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma (Season 01) Review

Literally Anime Food Porn

    Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma is quite an interesting anime. An anime adaptation was announced on October 2014 by Shueisha. The anime is directed by Yoshitomo Yonetani at J.C.Staff with Shogo Yasukawa as the series scriptwriter and will star Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as the main character, Sōma Yukihara.

    It begins in a nice diner in Japan with a father and son relationship as they cook to their frequenters and new guests. They are challenging each other to see how fast they can serve their customers ordering the same thing in the menu. A very healthy relationship, if you ask me. With the father defeating him continuously seems to bring out their passion it making great food. Also, in making extremely terrible dishes that ingredients would never match in anyway possible for the human taste buds. Squid with peanut butter or octopus with chocolate, woah. "So tasty" then proceed to throw up right afterwards.



    When food is consumed at any point in this anime, it gets pretty detail in how the character feel in the inside. 100% of the time, they are feeling Ecstasy and just about naked in their minds. Do not watch, if you don't like fan service. There is lots of it. Though, the anime starts with a lady with a small shirt and huge cleavage. Completely, unnecessarily but it is okay for the character because she doesn't appear again. She was the only over sexualized character in the anime.



    Sōma Yukihara has a hidden family past that it is quite interesting as the season goes along. His father is much better than he is, and Sōma wants to be able to supersede him in the future. To take over the family business. Later, his dad decides to leave and temporary close the business to go to another country. Sending Sōma to go study at a prestigious culinary school, if he wishes. Sōma being the person he is, went to that school. And, from there the adventure begins. It is a good show in my opinion.


    The Art and music is not too memorable except when they show their food creations. Food all sparkly and glorified. It makes you think that you should probably make the recipe at home to enjoy with you family and friends. Especially, by the way they act and describe the flavors of the food. As if, they have never eaten in days.
