I don't think Food Wars needed an ova since it didn't really explain much or anything, but it was fun to watch at least. Expect some of the same over the top reactions from the series and you'll enjoy this still.

The first episode is just some of the characters going on a site seeing trip and trying some traditional Japanese food since most of them are not Japanese native. This leads to a decent food challenge towards the second half. The second episode has Alice and Erina going to a public pool on a hot day and the Polar star crew read more

Very tiny spoilers ahead.

This OVA is non-essential to the plot, so unless you just want more Shokugeki you can just skip to the second season.

After watch the first season of shokugeki no souma (Food Wars).

I think the studio do not need do OVA for the first season because it do not

Aldini brother and Oyaji in the shop. It still, didnt take my interest more because

it did'nt have fight cooking more.

For the second episode, it show a background of Nakiri Alice . She and Nakiri

Alice go to public pool in the summer. While, Souma and his friends go to some

place and have shaved ice and BBQ. It show, tsundere part of Nikumi,

So far I have watched the first 2 episodes of this OVA, so this review is based purely on what I've seen so far.

Having been a HUGE fan of the main story I was very excited to start watching this OVA. The episodes are self contained mini stories which focus a lot more on the characters surrounding Yukihira, and less on the main man himself.

I found the artwork in these OVA's to be less clean than in the main story, and the episodes felt very much like fillers. However they are still very entertaining and do a good job of showing the viewer a read more
