Synopsis

Ever since he was a child, fifteen-year-old Souma Yukihira has helped his father by working as the sous chef in the restaurant his father runs and owns. Throughout the years, Souma developed a passion for entertaining his customers with his creative, skilled, and daring culinary creations. His dream is to someday own his family's restaurant as its head chef.

Yet when his father suddenly decides to close the restaurant to test his cooking abilities in restaurants around the world, he sends Souma to Tootsuki Culinary Academy, an elite cooking school where only 10 percent of the students graduate. The institution is famous for its "Shokugeki" or "food wars," where students face off in intense, high-stakes cooking showdowns.

As Souma and his new schoolmates struggle to survive the extreme lifestyle of Tootsuki, more and greater challenges await him, putting his years of learning under his father to the test.

Sorry everyone, I honestly don't know why this show is so highly ranked as it is.

Shokugeki no Souma is a train wreck. And when I say this I don't say it lightly - what started out glowing with great potential came crashing and burning once the show got a little over half-way into the season.

The biggest and most saddening part of Shokugeki is the very poor (or lack of) character development. By throwing way too many characters into the mix, there is simply not enough screen time for most of the main characters. The only person who I would argue went under the most significant read more

Shokugeki no Souma (Food Wars) is an anime about battles of cooking as the title suggests. This anime has gotten very popular in the few months it has been airing and it has also been received pretty well. But is it any good or is it just another one of those popular but dull anime, that I will discuss in this review.

Story - 8/10

You must have realized that the anime revolves around Soma Yukihira who wants to become a cook and surpass his father in cooking. Some stuff happens and Soma ends up in Totsuki Academy, which is the best cooking school in Japan. read more

Author's Note:

Lo and behold the return of the prodigal negative Food Wars review! Sure, some fanboys may cry, but manuscripts don't burn...and neither apparently do internet reviews!

Overview:

I extrapolated a mathematical equation to find the value of Food Wars!

Food + Moe + Ahegao = Shitty Animu

Food Wars has skyrocketed to the very top of MAL's ratings, but is it really the greatest anime of all time like so many keep saying? No, no it isn't. Is it even a great anime? No. Food Wars isn't even an average quality anime! It is an absolute shit anime that has managed to gain an unusual coalition of fans, read more

~ Shokugeki no Soma ~

- STORY - 6 - [mainstream battle with food as its focus]
The Story Sticked from the Original Content of the Manga, JC-STAFF is a Daring Anime studio, which produced 3 ecchi animes that sticked to the orginal content with crazy plot and awesome fanservice(which is the oxygen of sales and business)
The Setting is Easy, yet they added some spice that made the people enjoyed it, It's a Cooking Battle Show, with Ecchi Expression in every judges, even GUYS gets NAKED. But the Real setting or the Titlte it self "Shokugeki no Soma" which means the "Fight of Soma through Shokugeki"(Cooking battles read more
